Be Transformed

Be Ye Transformed

Keep this in mind when you go to see Transformers this weekend.

Apparently the Autobots are not the only things capable of transforming.  If you’re willing 2 change your mind about some things then U can be transformed as well.

If U can’t then the Word of God is a lie.

Deal wit it!

The Undercurrents

This post was inspired by a conversation I had with my daughter.

For folks who want to make art, make the world a better place, make something better, make changes in their work place, stand-up, lift their voice, do something different, do something important, or just go a different way for the sake of going a different way beware of the undercurrents.

The undercurrents are strong ever present cultural currents trying to pull you in the direction of the the mainstream.

The Average Joe can’t make it swimming against the cultural current.  But you’re no Average Joe – are you?

Learn to swim across the cultural current by studying folks like Steve Jobs, Gandhi, Karl Benz, Oprah Winfrey, and Einstein to name a few.

The fatigue you’re experiencing today because you’re fighting the current, is the price for your better tomorrow.

We need you to succeed.

Don’t give up what ever you do!

The Power Of Human Connection

Chess game theory teaches that connected pawns present the most powerful pawn structures, and connected rooks working together have a higher point value than a queen.  Same is true in life.  The most powerful, most valuable humans are the most connected humans.

Travis Kalanick connected people with cars, to people needing rides.  Uber, the app that does the connecting is worth more than the sum total of cars it connects.

When Dr. King said he had a dream of white men and black men, Jew and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, sitting together at the table of brotherhood he was talking about the power of human connection.

Society and business value both the connector, and the connected.  Today look for ways to connect with others, and to be a connector for others.
