Cultivating Cultures of Care

Character cultivates caring. In my last blog here, I noted… “As a Master Facilitator with The Virtues Project, I am aware that (a) character matters and most so in times of uncertainty, (b) character is driven and developed by the practice of virtues and (c) such practice is made possible by reflecting on what each virtue looks like in action. As I face each step of the walk forward, it is crucial to assess the situation, identify the virtues called for, imagine what they would look like, and then act accordingly.

  • Assess the situation with Openness and Discernment
  • Identify the virtues called upon with Discernment and Decisiveness
  • Imagine the virtues in action with Creativity
  • Act upon that imagination with Initiative and Commitment

This morning I was inspired by a remarkable student presentation that reminded me powerfully of (a) the importance of building cultures of community driven by character and (b) the equal importance for us to individually take true care of ourselves. After the session this morning, I found myself assessing my situation, identifying virtues needing practice, imagining their application, and acting upon it. In a subsequent class/course with those same students, I made the assignment to be an hour of self care. Their ticket out would be that they take the hour and find a way to reduce their stress. I said I would be willing to stay around if that was what helped… but I gave them all the option. They identified their plans for that self care and went off, thankful. I too made my declaration.

Building cultures that care and taking care of ourselves are not divergent themes. We set the example, and build the culture in doing so.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

We cannot be certain of much but there are things for which we can.

In Tenacious Sagacious Steps, I suggested that “Tenacity is that capacity to keep walking, and Sagacity is that capacity for discerning each step that is right for us.” I recommend the back back, read and reflect.

That said, me too.

I am also discerning thusly.

This has been a demanding week between my walking the Baha’i Fast while getting back to online teaching and various development projects, plus my new road back to health. One mini project amongst it all was to update Rock 109 to Rock 118… a new periodic table of virtues for practice.

Why do I offer such here? As I consider Tenacity and Sagacity, the “raw materials” are the practice of the virtues. The challenge is to look at each situation faced, as faced, and consider what virtues are necessary for each; not unlike a 118 speed stick shift.

As a Master Facilitator with The Virtues Project, I am aware that (a) character matters and most so in times of uncertainty, (b) character is driven and developed by the practice of virtues and (c) such practice is made possible by reflecting on what each virtue looks like in action. As I face each step of the walk forward, it is crucial to assess the situation, identify the virtues called for, imagine what they would look like, and then act accordingly.

  • Assess the situation with Openness and Discernment
  • Identify the virtues called upon with Discernment and Decisiveness
  • Imagine the virtues in action with Creativity
  • Act upon that imagination with Initiative and Commitment

Tenacious Sagacious Steps

First, this week, I invite you to check out Purposeful and Kind. In it, I posed the thought that “Purposefulness is a Virtue; a strength of character. It brings meaning to life. It gives it true value… and we get to define it, as parents, kindred, friends, colleagues and more. We get to define it as educators, entrepreneurs and emerging leaders. We get to also help others define their own by living ours. And we can look to the dreams of our childhood for signs and signals. I am looking back and forward. Clarity abounds, and more to follow. But, clarity is there.”

With the Baha’i Fast upon me and now into Day 3, clarity continues. And, as the video indicates I am diving into Sagacity. This morning, I posted on Facebook and LinkedIn…

“For me, today is a day of #struggle and #Sagacity … that capacity to discern a deeper insight. At 9:43 pm this evening, it will be one month since #bestlittledogintheworld Panda passed. She was not “like” family. She was family. She was not part of my family. With no parents nor children, she was my whole and own family. I saw and see her not as pet, but as Little Wolf to my Big Wolf. We walked life together for 13+ years. Why do I offer this? Enter Sagacity. Enter this TED talk on #grief … maybe when those of us who say we cannot seem to move on, we are really saying we do not intend to move on without honoring who we love. Grief is proportional to genuine Love. Genuine #Love is proportional to #Honor and Strength. Grieving does not imply the inability to move forward. It implies we will move forward being so moved by those we Love. It is #Courage in action.”

And I posted this TED talk by Nora McInerny on grief and moving forward.

My point? Of late, I have been purposefully reflecting back … and imagining forward … on path. I have been exploring Tenacity, and now Sagacity, as virtue; strength of character. Tenacity is that fierce and flexible Determination to “get there”, wherever we imagine “there” to be. Sagacity can be our capacity to deliberately discern our way there. Together, they forge a kind of Resilience that is best for us. We get to determine our way. We may have no idea what the future holds, but we can discern and determine our countenance and gate walking forward to it.

For me, I know what I will be working on with respect to living and walking my best life, with Integrity. I have discerned and decided with the happening of my recent 61st birthday.

That said, enter Tenacity and Sagacity for the walking forward. Tenacity is that capacity to keep walking, and Sagacity is that capacity for discerning each step that is right for us. As Richard Bolles once premised, our mission and purpose is not some fixed state that one day we discover not unlike a mountaintop where we can see everything. Mission and purpose are slowly unfurled. And it requires self awareness. When we have a true sense of what is important to us and we are aware of our strengths and capacities, we explore mission and purpose by bringing our best to life each day… to that which is most important… and see where that takes us. Then, moving forward is one tenacious sagacious step at a time. With that in mind and heart, this morning I took the opportunity to assess my passion, purpose and propensity for exploring character. I finalized my new ROCK 109 poster, identifying 109 virtues we work with and on at Epic Engage.

Over this College Break this week, and The Fast I am now in and amidst, I will be reviewing and finalizing design of my new website, and better identifying and articulating on my work as a College educator and with Epic Engage. I will be diving ever deeper on inventorying what matters most to me and what, with 61 years of life invested, I best bring to the table personally and professionally. I will forge an ever greater clarity around base camp (this crossroads in my life, this intersection) for me, all the better knowing that:

  • there is indeed a mountain to climb (the rest of my life)
  • I do not know what it holds ahead
  • but I can know what I will bring to the party and path… including the twin capacities of Tenacity and Sagacity.

My thoughts to you are:

  • Get What Color is Your Parachute? by Dick Bolles (I have no vested interest, but I wholly believe in the content and have for some 39 years now… I have multiple copies over those 39 years)… and you can find it here on Amazon too..
  • Work through the book.
  • Get clear on your own inventory. Be that self aware of what you bring to your own life path and party.
  • Then, accept that you do not know the future, but you can know what you bring to it…
  • And, practice Tenacity and Sagacity moving forward.

This past week I wrote on 4 Months to Live and, these past few weeks on Tenacity, Wisdom, the Brain and more… and I recommend the reads. That said, consider your base camp (individually and/or organizationally) and the mystery that is the future. Our way forward is about knowing where we are, what is most important to us, what we bring to the proverbial table, and how we engage Tenacity and Sagacity on the path forward. Panda instinctively and implicitly checked all the boxes. I will Honor her by rising to her example.

I hope to see you on the path.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

GO!

In Content Meant 2021, I wrote “We need be cautious in confusing what we actually study and deliver on from how we deliver it. We need to distinguish between the body of knowledge we have deep interest and expertise in, and how we deliver on same. Content and delivery are both important, but not the same. When both are clear and strong, we have the capacity for what I affectionately call content meant. And Contentment.” There is a sense or order to that.

My content is Character Leadership and Unity Building (I call it the CLUB lol).

I deliver on them through speaking, teaching, singing, dancing, cartooning and more.

That said, I also deliver in how I try my best to live. Last night was a rough night with Panda and her health. Before her episode, I had posted this…

This little one got my back and I have hers. She has my heart too. 🙂

And I acted upon that truth last night. My adopted Code applied.

See below.

These words, in deeds, mattered.

Difficult times demand much of us, and the Grace to bring it.

And a sense of order for us.

Grace is a Trust powerfully, humbly placed.

Orderliness is about creating our own necessary “backbone” to life and living it.

Reflect on these two. How do they apply for you?

Grace and Orderliness; that’s a GO!

Noble Rising

In Nothing to Report?, I said “… things are happening, things are changing. I am in self reflection.”

I was, and am.

It is 2021, and the days of uncertainty continue. Personally, I deeply hold that we are in historic times and that we will make it.

With work, and character.

And over these days, and amidst memorizing these words of Baha’u’llah that I have chosen to adopt as my own “code” for which to strive life long, , I am also reminded of these words deeply held sacred and believed.

  • “Noble have I created thee, yet thou hast abased thyself. Rise then unto that for which thou wast created.”

Exchange your name for thee and thou and thyself. Let that sink in. Understand what it says about your noble spirit.

There are 44 days until my next birthday, and the gift I choose to give myself is to have these words sink in to my very bones, cells and atoms. Rise then, in the practice of Nobility.

The world needs us, our nobly created us… each of us. Character is called for in these times and moving forward. It is called for at home, school, work, business and community. It is called for in order for us to move forward together, stronger. What does your noble spirit look like, in practice and in action? Imagine that countenance and gate. I am.

I am imagining what that more assured and humble step looks like, with the intention of living and working it. I am imagining it at home, school, work, business and community. The words above are being transformed into a personal vision of the man I chose to be.

How about you?

Come on up for the rising.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Strength of Service

In Walk that Humble Swagger, I shared on a thought around “Be unjust to no (hu)man, and show all meekness to all (hu)men.”

Now, I am on to another week-long leg of the 42 Day Countdown Journey to 2021.

This a journey towards exploring my own character being brought to 2021. Given the past week and news of Panda’s health and the road ahead, I am ever more clear on the need for me to do this. So, this week, I am focusing on “Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression.” I am taking this week to ponder these words.

But, I must tell you that my recent conversation with Linda Kavelin-Popov reminded me of what they might look like humbly strived for in a human being and doing. I invite you to take in that conversation.

Linda is a best selling author, international speaker and Founder of The Virtues Project, starting with a simple coffee conversation in 1988. The Project is now in at least 120 countries and has received recognition from the UN, Dalai Lama, Oprah and Time magazine. It is remarkable as a true movement; and I recommend that view and listen.

As for me, Day 22 (Wednesday, December 9) through Day 16 (Tuesday, December 15)… will be about deepening on the path of what it might look like to strive to be “as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression.”

There is Strength in these notions, for ourselves and in Service to others; humbly walked.

I know that 2021 for me will be a path where Service is the foundation of a true sense of joy… practiced with Panda, my Circle and those I am most intent on serving going forward.

Now that (for me) is a strength to lead worth working towards.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Walk that Humble Swagger

In A Code of Character last week, I shared on a Countdown I am on. I suggest the read. Since then, I have shared on…

All of this is to say that (a) Panda has tests being run this week and (b) Wednesday, December 2 is Day 29 of the Countdown. Much like last week, I am going to take a week from Day 29 (Wednesday, December 2) to Day 23 (December 8) and address…

“Be unjust to no (hu)man, and show all meekness to all (hu)men.” 😉

By address, I mean that I will choose to meditate and reflect on same. I will practice Prayerfulness in doing so. But I will also keep these thoughts on meekness in heart and mind. Meekness is born of Humility, and there is nothing weak about Humility.

Humility values ourselves and others; thoughts and feelings. It is quite willing to both give and receive help, allowing us to recognize that we are each “works in progress”. With it, we can both admit our mistakes and learn from them. It was Dale Carnegie who suggested we should admit our mistakes emphatically. Admission of such is born of true Confidence. With Humility, we are perfecting though never perfect… and we are grateful for that and our other gifts. Humility is a beautiful, quiet Confidence that says we have a right be here and so do others.

So, “Be unjust to no (hu)man, and show all meekness to all (hu)men.” Enter Humility.

Humility is Strength. I have often spoken on Humble Swagger, and I am being reminded I need further reflect on same. As I walk these days with Panda, and head into 2021 resolved to bring my own best (regardless of what 2021 brings) in strength of character… I need go deeper on Humility.

Gary Vaynerchuk gets it. John Mellencamp sings to it. My thought to you is to consider and reconsider this strength of Humility. We need more of it to inherit the Earth.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

A Code of Character

In The New CGI, I shared on Charity and Generosity as Intelligence. Since then, I have been exploring a 42 Day Countdown to 2021… by deconstructing on these words…

I offer this because I just got through Day 37 for Wednesday, November 25, 2020… and am about to explore, “Be fair in thy judgement and guarded in thy speech.” for Thursday and Friday, November 26 and 27 respectively. I say this because I encourage you to follow along. I am increasingly seeing these words as a Code of Character (and leadership) at school, work, business and community… personally and professionally. I invite you to explore with me, heading into 2021.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

A New CGI

In Remembering Zeal, I shared…

“Pursuing our own vision of Excellence starts with getting so tastably clear on why it all matters. We need taste it, palpably so to find our Zeal and deal with the tiredness that comes from us not seeing it. Going honest and true… getting courageously clear on what and who matters most. There we find mission and meaning. There we find passion and purpose. There, we remember our Zeal. For the Fallen, we Rise.”

There was a lot in that post and I humbly and sincerely suggest the read and reflect. That said, and this week, my head and heart turn to Charity and Generosity.

I suggest that there is an intelligence to their practice. Kindness and Empathy matter. It matters to others and it matters to ourselves. And there is Science to support. As I walk my purpose with Zeal, I am reminded that Charity and Generosity matter… vitally so. They matter in their Sincerity of practice.

They matter to my own wellness and to that of others. They matter to you and your others. They are a spirit, countenance and gate that results in daily actions guided thusly. I am reminded this day of how vital that is.

Reflect on these virtues of Charity and Generosity. Know that they are an intelligence in and of themselves. So, maybe it is time for a new understanding and practice of CGI…. just be and be just.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Remembering Zeal

In Your Best CO, I shared last week on the importance of Certitude and Optimism. I suggest the read, and reflect. In these days and times, we need both as that “CO” in our lives and organizations … at home, school, work, business and community.

Being certain of that which matters most to us and in which we truly believe… and walking forward with that in Optimism… can serve as anchor and rudder and ballast and fuel.

That said, this week, I find myself tired; very freakin’ tired. Honestly so. And I think it was Jimmy Johnson, former coach of the Miami Hurricanes, Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins who said something to the effect that being tired makes cowards of us all. So, I am thinking that, if we need and seek Courage in these times (I certainly do), we need remember some things.

Remembrance

In exploring Courage in the face of being tired, I am reminded this Remembrance Day, that laziness is not a thing… it is a lack of a thing. Motivation. Like darkness is the absence of light, laziness is the absence of motivation.

That lack of motivation can be born of tiredness and exhaustion and its impact on our practice of Courage. We can get to a point where we consciously or unconsciously ask ourselves, “Does it even matter?” Being aware of the impact of our weariness on our Courage and motivation is a start; a great start.

I am also reminded that motivation is more than rah-rah; a lot more. Motivation is deeper than we often imagine it. Motivation is driven by the practice and experience and manifestation of three powerful Virtues.

Indeed, motivation has three core factors… energy, direction and follow through. It requires all three. Having energy does not make one motivated. Many run around all day getting little done, not unlike spin tops going nowhere. Having energy and direction does not necessarily get things done either, if we do not follow through amidst the trials along the way. Energy, direction and follow through… born of Enthusiasm, Purposefulness, and Steadfastness… this is true motivation. But this morning, amidst my tired, I am also remembering that such three are found in…

The Deal on Zeal

Zeal has, in some circles, gotten a bad and misunderstood rap…. zealots, you know. But Zeal is that purposeful enthusiastic, determined Virtue that says “tired, be damned, we are going there, we are getting there”. It is a fiery resolve and Ardor. Am I saying that we should exhaust ourselves? Indeed and in deed … not. Dale Carnegie once said, “Rest before you get tired.” and there is Wisdom in that. Still, there are times when we must particularly practice Zeal. I have no doubt in times of battle, exhaustion and fatigue can be our greatest adversaries.

I think on my parents and that generation that lived through a Great Depression, a World War and more. Imagine such times, and length of days. This Day of Remembrance, ponder on that. Go beyond a cognitive remembrance. Try to feel what that must have been like. How does one make it through? Part of it is Sacrifice. I think Zeal is a huge part of it. Zeal, the practice of …

  • a deep sense of purpose and meaning
  • passion for what matters most, giving all we have to it
  • Perseverance and Enthusiasm
  • Joyfulness and Consideration, along the way

What does that look like for me? Keeping my eyes on the prize… and my feet on the ground…

But, it is more. It is about getting to an emotional and, dare I say, spiritual WHY. Zeal demands that dive. I am in that space this day, digging deepest yet into why any and all of what I do truly and fundamentally matters. I will let you know what I uncover. But such a dive requires Candor within.

And, Zeal is manifested in diverse ways. Along the way, we can and must rest. We can move and be still with Zeal. We can rest and reset with Zeal.

Remembrance and Zeal

I am tired. Very tired. And, I will rest. But, I will not forget those who committed their lives… and I will not forget the power that is Zeal. I will not forget its importance in defense of what is right and of character. I will not forget its importance in these times of trial and baseness. I will not forget Zeal in these days of Pandemic, Social Justice and Reset. I will remember who I am. I will remember what moves me, feet and heart. I will remember what matters most to me. I will remember the global goals, and the importance of my own and each of our roles in the betterment of the world. These are our historic times, and they require our own individual acts of remembrance and heroism. I will spend time more deeply remembering this day.

For me, and today, my best Remembrance of those who gave all… is to reflect on what that example means for me in living my life, here and now… and forward. My best Remembrance of Zeal is to consider what they had to conjure and offer up… and ask myself what must I do so in spirit, now and forward. How can and will I truly Honor the Fallen…

… by rising, with Zeal… and being the hero of my own life and story… genuinely. In movement and in stillness. And, in so doing, I now remember those words of LP Jacks…

  • “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.”

Pursuing our own vision of Excellence starts with getting so tastably clear on why it all matters. We need taste it, palpably so to find our Zeal and deal with the tiredness that comes from us not seeing it.

Going honest and true… getting courageously clear on what and who matters most. There we find mission and meaning. There we find passion and purpose. There, we remember our Zeal.

For the Fallen, we Rise.

This is how we can best deliver. Oh and, if figuring on purpose matters to you… check out this recommendation and get it.

Peace, passion and prosperity…
