Delighted to report that this one – FINALLY – hit a chord. Not just a small chord – put a very large sonorous one. Ok – some of the chords were – well – dischordant … if you will pardon the extension of the musical metaphor. But really – isn’t that what it is all about. Dialogue! It’s just great to see responses. it means people are really reading and taking things to heart.
Click through, read on and comment back. I want to hear. And once the excitement has died down I wil be sure to do a follow up.
A Ted Talk from Nick Hanauer – rebel VC … if that isn’t an oxymoron!
Interesting that he concludes his talk with 5 rules of thumb behind ‘the new economics’ that answers the question. Intersting because all 5 are some of the building bricks (tenets) of the Pillars of the People First Business Equaiton.
‘Real Stories | Real People’ is a new occasional series that will start to appear on this blog in the not too distant future. But that’s not the point of the newsletter. The point was first to share the story of Richard Montañez.
The second was to ask you to think about success. What is it. And more importantly – is it uner your control. It isn’t as clear cut as you might think.
Sometimes the task in front of me seems to be so large and never–ending that I get despondent. And then I read something like this and I just tell myself to shut up and get on with it.
I wouldn’t normally link to something like this – at least not on this blog – but this morning I also happened to catch Rob Long’s Martini Shot Podcast … a ‘shot’ in the arm over a few minutes. It’s the one dated August 21st that I want you to listen to. Sage advice and not far off from what I was writing about in this week’s newsletter and then seeing this … well ‘put up or shut up’ as they say.
