‘I have the audacity to believe.’ (Martin Luther King)

January 2019. New Year. It seemed impossible. A devastating typhoon created a mountain mudslide that left a house destroyed. The people inside barely escaped with their lives.

Win Some, Learn Some

Shift your Perspective and Shift your Results.

So often we believe that we have only 2 options generally. #WinOr Lose. The expression we frequently hear in order to appease our sensibilities is “#YouWnSomeYouLoseSome.” And that is a fair statement; though I would venture to say, not entirely factual.
I believe in the #PowerOfChoice. When we take control of our perspective on a situation, we can modify our viewpoint to accept the “loss” or to use the “loss” and make … Read the rest

Seeing what appears. If you prefer plans, predictability and structure

Seeing what appears

‘An emergent strategy is a pattern of action that develops over time in the absence of a specific mission and goals, or despite a mission and goals.’ (Mintzberg)
