Greatness is Not a Destination

What you do along your professional journey prepares you for what you are here to serve.

In the case of Gandhi, for instance, his early study of the British law helped him negotiate for India’s independence.

For John Paul II, it was his stage acting as a young man during the war that prepared him for the role of his life as the first Pope in the TV age.

Steve Jobs described his early study of calligraphy as the catalyst to the idea of merging design and beauty into computers.

The point is that much of your work is about building capabilities and seeding possibilities. Your journey is about opening future options.

Where do you find greatness?

Greatness is the charisma that accompanies the journey to discover how you are meant to gift this world.

Winning a Dogfight in The Air

In this Key I am going to share with you a focusing practice. This practice saved my life and it can save your life too, not just in flight, but in business and at work.

Life is not a dogfight. There is a lot more to living and working than a fight between two opposing sides. Many situations are not a zero sum game, where one side is the winner and the other the loser. We now operate in a world that is hyper-complex in more ways than we can easily navigate. You often collaborate with the competition, and co-create opportunities with all parties involved. This is a universe of exponential possibilities. In such an interconnected world the dogfight bifocal practice is even more critical. Read more about the dogfight bifocal practice here.
