Dare, Decide and Detach

Last week, in Grateful and More, I shared ” Taking time to be grateful and content does not negate the need for work and the march forward. But being grateful and content can help us sustain our walk. Optimism sees “the stuff” ahead and knows we will get there. For me and my life right now, I am at that very place. There is much for which I am grateful. Yet, this time and these days have been an incredibly challenging time for me. There is more to be walked and worked towards. I am reminded this day that Contentment and Optimism are practiced, as is Gratitude… while we walk forward. The practice might be hard, but worthy.”

And now, walking forward, I am focused on Daring, and Deciding and Detaching… as I gaze into my life ahead…

I am going back to read these blog posts (suggesting you do too), understanding that there is no magic button, only practice. Here we go…

Peace, passion and prosperity…

To Be Considered Again

I have renamed my blog, “Barry’s Bewildered Blog” in part inspired by the Wisdom of Rumi, “Sell cleverness. Buy bewilderment.”

In part inspired by “be wilder”.

Y’see, I am no master. I do not believe in mastery. I believe in studentry as a life long journey. It is akin to the notion of perfect as a noun and verb. The former is a destination, unreachable. The latter is our best reality in striving for it. So, welcome to Barry’s Bewildered Blog.

🙂 In Your Invention? I wrote… “My invention is about to be unveiled July 1, Canada Day. The boy inside the man cannot wait.”

That is the first leg… the website now better reflects me and my work, our work, … R4/D2 in practice. One foot in.

That said, and as more than an aside, it is the Eve of Canada Day (aka Dominion Day). Well wishes to all! And to friends south of the border for July 4!!

May we all continue to build nations of justice and love for all.

My Dominion Day

But the personal “biggie” right now for me is August 1. For the Nation of Barry, it is BIG. As a Baha’i, I live by 2 calendars. The Baha’i Calendar (this is the year 177 BE) has 19 months of 19 days, plus a 5 day period of giving and hospitality in February. The point is that August 1 is the coincidence of both calendars. It is the 1st day of the eighth month in both. I have also always liked the number 8. Don’t ask we why. I just do. So, August 1 and Kamál 1 coincide as the 1st day of the eight month.

Oh, and August meansmarked by majestic dignity“.

Kamál means Perfection.

Diggin’ it. 🙂

And, July is the one month of the year that I have no teaching. It’s calendar is a free agent for me. While I have some 7 cool youth, entrepreneurship, community and character development events this July, I am intent on making this time a deeper beautiful dive.

I intend to practice Consideration.

I intend to process my own sense of grief in these times.

I intend to refresh and gladden.

I intend to revisit my own sense of leadership. I was sent this post on leadership qualities by Allan Borch and I will reflect on same. I will read and study stuff I love. I will pray. I will play. I might even share, lol.

It is time.

Realizing your life, schedule and priorities are different, how will you find some time to consider and reflect? We are half way through a wild 2020, and we have a new world unfolding. How can you take some time this month to ponder your path forward?

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Your Invention?

In My Fortress last week, I shared “I am getting there, and have decided, with exams and grades completed and wrap up activities underway, to take these next 2 weeks and do the hard work. Getting a meaningful journal, my prayer book, and some time “away”… and it is time for a rescue, of Soul… and character.”

I am in mid-stream. And ever increasing clarity is resulting. This morning, I wrote on rethinking Charity, and it is burning away a fog that has been experienced for a couple years now, as I have spent considerable time reflecting and imagining on the path for Epic Engage. That path is now actually crystal clear and is about to be manifested on this very website over the coming days.

This evening, I recorded this as a brief reflection on what is more clear for me today. It was, in part, inspired by seeing this piece today from Simon Sinek. All of this is to say that determining your WHY is paramount. It is the source of our best invention.

My invention is about to be unveiled July 1, Canada Day. The boy inside the man cannot wait.

What might be yours?

Think about it.

That is it for me, for now.

I will have much more to share next week.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

In Dominion and Daring, I said, “These next few days will be that. This next week or so, and amidst the concluding of the College year… will see that deep dive. Dabbling does not do it. There are several questions I am ever more intent on honestly and courageously answering:

  • What does real look like in my work and life?
  • What does raw imply in terms of how I deliver on it?
  • How do I understand “the right thing”; what is my metric for same?
  • How do I define “results” in life?”

I am getting there, and have decided, with exams and grades completed and wrap up activities underway, to take these next 2 weeks and do the hard work. Getting a meaningful journal, my prayer book, and some time “away”… and it is time for a rescue, of Soul… and character.

Actually, my Soul needs no rescue, but an audience… full, focused and fierce. We are there. My own fortress of solitude awaits.

This morning, I posted on Assertiveness, and I recommend the read.

Take it to heart.

I will.

See you next week.

Dominion and Daring

In Dare to Care, last week, I shared “As I head into this upcoming weekend, I am leaning towards taking my work and business … and somewhat spinning it all on its head. I am teaching online these days as I walk through my now 82 days of isolation. I am exploring new capacities in doing so. But, my work with Epic Engage is getting more than a re-look. I am examining the very foundation of what I do with it. Indeed, this month, it undergoes a Soulful re-engineering to meet the real, raw, right and results… “

I recommend the read. Indeed, I recommend R4/D2 as well. They are guiding me. Still, it did not finish with last weekend. Indeed the process has engaged its own challenges, and choices… and the practice of Wisdom. When I think back to real, raw, right and results … and Dominion and Daring, I more deeply realize that this requires a deep and immediate dive. No dipping of toes in the pool here. Determining exactly what real, raw, right and results means for me requires an act driven by same.

These next few days will be that. This next week or so, and amidst the concluding of the College year… will see that deep dive. Dabbling does not do it. There are several questions I am ever more intent on honestly and courageously answering:

  • What does real look like in my work and life?
  • What does raw imply in terms of how I deliver on it?
  • How do I understand “the right thing”; what is my metric for same?
  • How do I define “results” in life?

I will attack these questions practicing Dominion

… and Daring.

89 days into my own self isolation, and I have questions to ask and answers to provide. I have my own Soulful interrogation to conduct.

What questions are you needing ask yourself? Are you dabbling or daring in asking them? What would it look like when you take your own deeper dive? What impact would it have?

Dive with me.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Dare to Care

The exploration of character and unity drives my Soul. Two of my favourite Sacred Writings are…

  • “The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens.”
  • “The betterment of the world can be accomplished through pure and goodly deeds, through commendable and seemly conduct.”

R4/D2 Continues

R4/D2 was a bit of a starting place, again. In that post last week, I shared on real, raw, right, results, Dominion and Daring. I humbly suggest the read, as I am going back to reread… myself.

Since last week, the world continues to foment and torment. I am a man of Optimism, and I believe that change is coming, and in ways we might not even expect. And, it can be hard or easy. Our choice. But, it is coming… short and long term.

That said, my own personal change is afoot… with R4/D2 in heart and mind. The walking continues. So does the blogging and more. I am continuing my reading of The Realm Between. I am working through my own new path.

broadCAST Live is growing. Justice Lead too. A new show called Talk Reel with Stephanie Staples coming soon. Rise Above#hUmaNITY … and more.

T.U.G.tv is coming.

I say none of this to impress, nor even impress upon. I am simply learning as I go. I say this because my Soul is stirring. It is trying to tell me something. And, I am listening.

As I head into this upcoming weekend, I am leaning towards taking my work and business … and somewhat spinning it all on its head. I am teaching online these days as I walk through my now 82 days of isolation. I am exploring new capacities in doing so. But, my work with Epic Engage is getting more than a re-look. I am examining the very foundation of what I do with it. Indeed, this month, it undergoes a Soulful re-engineering to meet the real, raw, right and results… and to be grounded in Dominion

and Daring.

In so doing, I dare to care, for myself and my world. We live in this wold. Our Souls may not be of it, but we are in it. For me, I am ever closer, creeping closer to that notion and what it looks like for me.

For you, what would it look like to own who you are, be it, do it and live it? What would it look like to bring you to the world or your corner of it?

Do that.

I will.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

R4/D2… 6 Pillars for Living

In Step Back and Forward, I wrote… ” For me, it is time to take something of a spiritual step back, on the eve of 70 days of taking a physical step back under self isolation. For me, it is time to step back, to step forward. It is time.”

In and amongst that time, I have been walking and reflecting, a lot… some 45,000 steps in the past three days alone. I have written on Wonder, and shared my thoughts on the release of Shinedown’s Atlas Falls. You should have a listen to that song… I looove it.

Yesterday, in finishing off 16,000+ steps, amidst my music and prayers and more, I had a thought come on some things key for my work and life going forward… some pillars, if you will. It came almost in a flash and with a bit of an acronym of course, lol. This brain seems subject to same. 🙂

Enter R4/D2.

Real. Raw. Right. Results. Dominion. Daring.

Real.

Integrity. Authentic. Genuine. For me, and for a long time, but ever more so going forward… no pretenses, posing or posturing. A mentor once told me that the difference in POSE and POISE is the “I”. We must be ourselves, real. Candor enacted.

This does not imply abandoning Tact

… but Tact is offering Truthfulness with Kindness. Enter Candor. Real, it is. Candor builds Trustworthiness as people start to get that there are no back doors. Neither does this imply gushing all to all. It implies being direct and real. Pillar One to my life and work.

Raw.

I believe in Professional, but I do not believe that that must imply some “smarmy” sense of polish. Raw is not about unprofessional for professional is about content; expertise. As Kim Mitchell once sung, “I know there’s a lot of feathers but not much chicken”. I have no interest in the “smooth” and “rehearsed”… or the name dropping and photo opps Raw is the way I like my carrots, and it is the way I like my work and life. Professional is about Excellence of content and intent. Raw allows (and I believe encourages) same in so much as it is not worried so much on “making a mistake” as it is on delivering the real goods. Pillar Two.

Right.

Consider Righteousness.

It is not the same as self righteousness. The former is about doing what is right (over what you feel like doing). The latter is about telling everyone else how to live. For me, the right thing is vital. Character matters, always.

In good, bad and ugly times, it matters. It is Strength. It is not about being Perfect as a noun, for that is myth. It is about Perfect as a verb which is all about getting better. Doing the right thing advances that. Trying matters. “Is this the right thing?” will be my question, moving forward. Pillar Three.

Results.

Purposefulness matters.

Purposefulness is less about drive and hustle as it is about intention and flow. I have long believed that Purposefulness is Joyfulness. It brings meaning. For me, arbitrary results are not the thing. Intent is more important than outcome … as outcome is, in many ways, out of our hands.

What is important is that we have ends in mind. Going through the motions is not of interest to me. Life is too precious. This does not imply being busy for busy sake, but this morning I posted on Facebook that “a life filled is not necessarily the same as a life fulfilled”.

For me, Results is about intent and focus and moving towards. The things I choose to do, going forward, will be grounded in same and such. “Does this move me, my work and life forward… does it give me a Hell Yeah?” is my question to self. Pillar Four.

Dominion.

Consider Dominion.

Dominion is the virtue of Ownership, and all that we truly own is our life. We take Responsibility for it. It is not about arrogance or dominance of others. It is about owning your life.

On this my 75th day of self isolation, I am owning my Responsibility to myself and others. Amidst this First Wave, and understanding the essential mechanics of pandemic waves, I will continue to physical distance, wash hands, cover face and more. I see it not as a constraint on my freedom, as my spirit is always free… and doing service to myself and others is a way to express that freedom of spirit.

Dominion means I own my life, and no one else will ever so be responsible for it. It means that I come into this world with it, and will leave with it… and only it. This life of mine is the only precious gem I will ever truly possess and I will claim Dominion of it. Pillar Five.

Daring.

To dare is not about taunting. It is about proving to oneself, one’s possibilities. Daring is not frivolous nor foolhardy for me. It is about knowing what I want to do, and moving forward doing it.

Do I want to parachute out of a plane? Nope. Do I want to bungee jump? Nah. Do I want to ride horseback on the steppes of Mongolia one day? Indeed, I do. Do I want to adventure into certain tributaries of life and work that I have never been. Oh yes.

I have found huge benefit and joy in doing so to date, and intend to make this Pillar Six, asking myself “Does this task or opportunity that I soulfully love require to to dare myself?”

If that answer is yes, I will have added smile.

A Return to R4D2.

I feel very real and raw about this decision. And right. I feel it focuses my efforts and intent and working and living in the direction and results I soulfully seek. It allows me to lay claim to the one thing I own; me. And it causes me to dare… to always be me.

My name is Barry Lewis Green. I own all three names. Barry means “spear carrier” or “spear” or “archer” depending on the source. Lewis (my grandfather’s name) means “famous in war”. The only war for which I seek to be famous is the war to claim my life and stand my middle ground.

I am a Baha’i. I am an educator by wiring, education and experience. I am an entrepreneur thusly as well. I am a world citizen, human… a Terran. I believe and hold fast in and to the global goals. I believe in the vital importance of character and unity in advancing peace, passion and prosperity as a planet. I believe in Humanity. Our Humanity is our highest standard. Our inhumanity is our lowest.

I teach, and speak, and dance, sing, cartoon, write, blog, vlog and create my way through and towards it all. I believe my life and work matters. I believe yours does too. I believe my life’s work is about being real and raw as I move towards results and do the right thing while moving there. I believe that my life is mine alone, and to be responsible in owning it. And I believe in the power of Daring to explore our greatest capacities.

I believe.

And now, I enact.

R4D2.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

In Candor Can Do, I wrote, “In these days, there is much to distract us. I know there is for me. And for me, Candor with myself and the resulting focus it will forge… will help me walk through those distractions with an assured step.”

I suggest that read.

Then I suggest this written today on the F Bomb.

Y’see… this past week, we launched broadCAST Live and Justice Lead. I invite you to check them out. We also posted the broadCAST for May 2020. All great stuff, that has me thinking. For me, it is time to take something of a spiritual step back, on the eve of 70 days of taking a physical step back under self isolation. For me, it is time to step back, to step forward.

Candor Can Do

OMG, it has been two weeks since my last post here… written on A Stronger Ship. Last week was filled with beginning Intersession and a new term at College. In that last post, I shared on 4 strengths for a better world. Empathy. Endurance. Enthusiasm. Excellence.

I suggest a go back and read, and reflect. That said, I also suggest that I am further exploring these four, and more.

Coach, Coach Thyself

In my most recent LinkedIn post, I weighed in on what I see as the problem with self care. Today, I am, amidst teaching online, planning for a bit of a retreat and advance this coming weekend. I am going to coach myself up.

In that time, and on my 64th and 65th days of self isolation, I am looking candidly at my own chosen road ahead. When I ponder on Empathy and Caring and their application for my own life, I am coming face to face and heart to heart with a reality we all need face to some degree or another.

Stop comparing.

Joe Calloway recently shared this on focus. In it, he says, “At some point, though, you need to focus on your areas of greatest potential… Don’t be distracted by things that you “could” do, but that would take away from those things that will bring you the greatest return on focus and effort.”

This speaks to me that the best way to take care, is to find my best aligned and sharpened focus. To do that, I need to practice Empathy and Caring, with myself. I need to listen to my self, myself… and not be distracted by all the voices and what everyone else is doing. I need to look to the world to see what genuine needs exist in the world that best meet my genuine focus and capacity. 40 years in leadership training and development across North America, my capacity is broad and deep. That is strength, and weakness. The weakness is the challenge it holds for focus. There is much I could do. There is much I can do. But, chasing bobbles and distractions does not serve me, nor those I choose to ultimately serve at work, and in life.

The Power of Empathy and Caring Inwardly Practiced

I am ever realizing today how much Empathy and Caring impact my capacity to get candid and truthful with myself. That, in turn and once executed on, fosters my ability to endure and excel; enthused to boot. There is a Certitude that can come from getting perfectly real. In working and coaching with clients, I would practice such to help get them more clear on focus. Those “guns” need be turned on my own internal conversation, ever more so… and now.

I am a blessed man. I love my work as an educator. I adore my work with Epic Engage. That said, such realities will be strengthened when I focus on what I best do, and go do that ever increasingly. This weekend will be about taking that “98% there” understanding to ever fuller alignment. I have no need to chase bobbles and business and buzz. I have the time and space to determine my own sense of the master in the art of living as LP Jacks described:

“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”

Candor, Can Do

Practicing Candor and Dominion and Wholeheartedness will get me there; and the kind of Candor, in particular, that is grounded in Empathy and Caring, and that produces a greater and genuinely enthused capacity to both endure and excel. It will help me sharpen and make my mark.

In these days, there is much to distract us. I know there is for me. And for me, Candor with myself and the resulting focus it will forge… will help me walk through those distractions with an assured step.

How about you?

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Character and Strength

My post this week is short, sweet and simple… I think. 🙂

First, please read last week’s post on Character Intelligence. Then, consider this most recent post on LinkedIn. Finally, consider these notes on wisdom for critical thinking from Carl Sagan.

Character is not some bobber adrift on the ocean. It is a formidable and strong ship cutting through and riding the waves. It is not prone to folly and fickleness. It is discerning and resolute.

I intend to deeper dive myself this week.
