You wake up every morning…then you go through your routine that really wakes you up, after that, you head to your front door, raise your arm slightly and rest it on the doorknob about to turn it when you pause.

You ask, “Do I have what I need to make it through this day?” You do a mental check. Check. Check. Check….your good! But are you?

Leadership is about navigating and nothing is as important to everyone as knowing how to navigate through today’s world economy. But you can’t navigate through anything that you cannot see without some guidance so I’m currently reading a book titled, “The Spirit Level: Why Greater Equality Makes Societies Stronger“, and I find the implication of its thesis very shocking.

In a very simplistic and broad sweeping analysis I find it saying that if you are to turn that doorknob and enter life you should 1) keep your doctor on speed dial for prescription anxiety medication, 2) pick up yoga (or any other method of naturally calming your stressors), or 3) fight politically to lower income inequality (which by the way, if chosen, will cause you to do 1 or 2).

Why? Because if you don’t, the life expectancy of all(wealthy and poor), will drop.

Isn’t that a poor indictment on being able to walk through our career paths?

Now I know that there is a rebuttal book out there titled, “The Spirit Level Delusion: Fact-Checking the Left’s New Theory of Everything“, but for now I still must ask the question asked above: “Do I have what I need to make it through this [life]?”

Because now it’s not about how much money “I” make, the real question is will “I” be healthy enough or live long enough to enjoy it?

I hope you can and do say YES!

Mile 137: Who am I to say THIS about Cancel Culture! iS IT TRUE?

This new space in our culture called “cancel culture” where any person who disagrees with the growing popular perspective or have made a misstep verbally or behaviorally, whether in the present or in the past, can be cancelled (i.e. have economic means negatively impacted) is the epitome of a self-defeating movement. But…. This is not […]

Mile 137: (Question 3) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now. I’ve gotten to speak with some friends, pastors and business folk about their pov and listened to some podcasts. I’m trying to get different vantage points so I […]
