Your Best CO

In On Words and Up Words, I shared on an important “D Line” for us all. And I said, “And the fuel of it all is to dare. It all moves with Daring. Now all that is one D Line rotation; and one I find myself pondering on as I head into 2021. This has been and continues to be an historic year. I believe that we are in historic times and the Infinite Game is afoot.

This week, and in light of my own practice of Detachment, Discernment, Decisiveness, Daring and more… two thoughts occur to me.

First, amidst the ongoing aftermath of an election which is still not complete (ballots remain to be counted)… and amidst Pandemic and matters of social, economic and environmental Justice

… I am reminded that there are two virtues vital in these times.

Second, and keeping Certitude and Optimism in heart and mind… strategic leadership engages four core activities… analyzing, formulating, implementing and evaluating. In any given situation, we are best served to discern the situation, decide on a strategy born of that Discernment, dare to initiate on that strategic Decisiveness, and evaluate on that Daring and execution, with Diligence. And it requires putting it into practice.

Running up to my 60th birthday last February 20, I had established a series of aligned goals to achieve by 20/02/2020. I subsequently achieved and realized some 85% of the goals. This week, and amidst the world locally, globally and glocally, I thought to do so again… for the next 14 months through to 2021.

… and I thought to choose my Code for living the walk and talk…

What is my point? In these times, the chance and cause for overwhelm can be great. All that we can be certain of is primarily internal. We cannot be certain of outcome but we can be certain of effort. We cannot be certain of response, but we can be certain of intent. Certitude matters…

Certain in uncertain times; and practicing Optimism

… in doing so. Certitude is our ballast and Optimism our fuel. In combination, there is your best CO.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

A “PD” Day?

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross suggested there were 5 stages of grief. We are experiencing them now. Some we might go through quickly, others less so. It is a personal experience. I think I am in the Bargaining piece now, figuring my way through. Last week, I shared on The Wall and the Eye. In it, I talked about the inner eye. I suggest the read. Today, on LinkedIN, I shared on Certainty in Uncertain Times. Again, I suggest the read, and reflect.

My point this day is this. I am in my 26th day of self imposed isolation and intent on a longer run yet. The introvert in me is cool with it all. The extrovert is trusting in the process and figuring out strategies. Ultimately, we are amidst much uncertainty and to get some sense of certainty, we need go inward. I need to, for sure. Try these on. I will.

A little PD for the day, for me… amidst teaching and working online. Discernment and Perceptiveness. I am in the midst of mine. How might they apply for you today?

Peace, passion and prosperity…
