The process to accomplish anything no one I know teaches

Introducing The bridge building process to get from where you are to where you want to be

One of the hardest thing for people, as I see, is to come up with the bridge between a dream and actions.

You can have the most amazing dream for the future, for a business, if you don’t know what actions to take to get there the dream will remain a dream… unfulfilled. Continue reading “The process to accomplish anything no one I know teaches”

It’s not in what direction you start but how you take turns

I was reading a Lee Goldberg book, Fast Track, about illegal car racing in Los Angeles. (In the movie it is some German town, not Los Angeles…)

One of the drivers says: it is not how fast the car is… it is the driver that matters.
It is not how fast you can drive, it is the turns that make the winner.

It is a principle…

An object already in motion can change direction. But an object at rest cannot be easily turned into the ‘right’ direction. Continue reading “It’s not in what direction you start but how you take turns”

Information is worthless. Knowledge is on the other side

Knowledge is where? It is on the other side of a river… you need a bridge.

A very painful fact OF LIFE triggered today’s article. The fact that information doesn’t readily translate to an improvement in your life, in your results.

I have called this phenomenon several different names for the past 30 years.

The thing/idea doesn’t have legs… I would say. And anything that doesn’t have legs cannot move… unless, of course, they are a snake, or a fish, but you get the gist, don’t you? Continue reading “Information is worthless. Knowledge is on the other side”

Process-conscious vs result-conscious… fulfillment every day vs one day someday

I have a brain that is a pattern seeking machine.

A pattern is when something is repeating, form, essence, pitch, sequence, day of the week, month of the year, etc… something that connects seemingly unconnected things together.

Seeing patterns can save lives, and animals living in the wild still have the capacity, but humans living in a comfortable world, have lost it… to their detriment.

Often the activity is called: connecting the dots… Even if Steve Jobs says: it is only possible to connect the dots backwards. He talks about different dots… he talks about the cause and effect type of dots, not the patterns. Continue reading “Process-conscious vs result-conscious… fulfillment every day vs one day someday”

The top of the mountain view: gets rid of the brain fog…

One of the things I teach people I coach is to do things differently than they would instinctively do.

One customary way to build a project is from the bottom up.

Let’s look at a dissertation, a paper, an article, a book. Or climbing a mountain. Or building a software app.

What is in common among them is that you’ll have an idea, then parts, processes, and then an end result.

I normally teach this through the example of climbing a mountain.

Why? Because standing on the top of the mountain is a different view than standing at the foot of the mountain.
