Strengthening Human Qualities

“It’s not about female/male; it’s about feminine-masculine.”

Thanks Shelley Zalis & Forbes for this article on strengthening feminine leadership attributes (regardless of sex) and expanding leadership traits. From #metoo to every day actions I’m seeing women stand up as leaders more often as well as women no longer standing for disempowering environments, actions and behaviours.

The businessperson, problemsolver, engineer, auntie and female in me is cheering.

Here’s to being human.

What’s coming?

Keen to imagine the future? In this interview Joe Lubin discusses what life will be like owing to blockchain tech, what’s coming and… it’s in layman’s terms (well done!).

“Any sort of transaction involving identity or legally enforceable agreements or assets… move much more fluidly because we can build clearing and settlement into the instance of the transaction.”

Jump in at 36:38mins for the future view of Ethereum and blockchain tech. Enjoy.

How to never worry again.

Kinda important, hey?

What’s going on online?

Love this. Own what you do.

Sayonara middle men:

I’ve been in the land of rivers (north coast NSW, Australia), in awe of the quiet beaches, whales breaching out to sea, delicious food and amazed at the many, many campervans and travellers in this part of Australia.

May you be well and happy. Smile, learn, experience, be.

Byron Beauty

These are my recent, favourite Byron Bay eateries and lookouts The random pins on the maps list are either roadside honey / ginger / vegetables /avocado stalls (oh, so, creamy!) or lookouts.

Here’s a local website with a homepage image that *popped* out at me.

Graves’ Research

Having gained much from the Never Ending Quest book mentioned recently, I’ve put together these links for newcomers to Spiral Dynamics and Clare W Graves’ decades of research into human evolution:

Start with the introduction here (thanks Steve McD) and listen to Steve and Nyck’s weekly, “Future Sense” radio show for practical, relevant and timely understanding.

Read this

Then read this. Here are the quotes I captured.

Then these images will make sense.

Interesting online news…

“Last Friday, Yale, the iconic long-term investor that other endowments look to for guidance, made a historic investment in two funds dedicated to crypto, signalling to many that institutional floodgates are officially open.”

A podcast for your CEO: the six tech waves explained by entrepreneur and VC Bill Tai. Also includes an easy-to-understand Blockchain tech introduction and the tech’s evolution.

Great to see the progress via Matt’s new Instagram account. Matt was the designer for Do Lectures Australia.

Conversations versus interviews. Oh yeah.

I’m relieved to read that Google plus is closing (thanks KP).

Here’s to now!

Expanding Self

This image of self development had my mind smile as the rippling lines show an individual growing outwards from the original body as development occurs. Perhaps the ripples could come from the whole body. It’s from the Never Ending Quest book (p181) by Clare W Graves, Cowan & Todorovic. I’ve been reading from page 195 to better understand and apply spiral dynamics. Thanks to Ross & Steve Mc for the inspiration.

Recent Internet Fascination

NASA on Instagram: “Four large islands are hard to miss in satellite imagery of the
Severnaya Zemlya archipelago in the Russian high Arctic. Spanning 37,000…”

“[Bitcoin]’s already storing $125bn of wealth – for tens of millions of people.
It’s the only financial system I’m aware of which has had 24×7 uptime for nine years.”
Pantera Capital October news

There are now many great blockchain podcast shows to listen to.
Here’s a favourite this week. Thanks Ross.

Loic’s writing again and his email was full of uplift. Here’s just some of it ~

Enliven your way of being and vision with Peta Kelly’s new book “The Earth is Hiring“. I mentioned Peta previously – she provides clarity around the future of business, leadership, getting things done and finances.

These new Ólafur tunes are so distracting! Here’s a sweet playlist.

What’s happening there that’s fascinating you?

I’m still on a high from the combination of a dawn surf and moments later seeing the rockets fly and land! I hope you were thrilled too.

_____

Outstanding!

OK… who – like me – was out loud counting down with the Falcon Heavy rocket liftoff? …and was your mouth catching flies* as the 2 Falcons landed bang-on the landing pads? Wasn’t it a spectacular?!

The new frontiers in space are certainly a priority for humanity now.

There are so many great videos to watch to relive the moment. Here’s a playlist, wonderful photos and this is Elon sharing his amazement at the post-lift-off press conference.

*Australian slang = awe

Great online presence

  • The fun of Craig Nelson’s LinkedIn summary ~

  • Matt’s LinkedIn achievement-orientated words: “Since ’96 I have…”

  • Nicholas’ succinct and powerful words. Hollywood Movies!

I’m using my Jaybird earphones again after trying Apple’s. Apple AirPods are stylish and light. For me they too easily flicked out and onto the ground. I think it’s a long hair thing. I also had to think to take them out of my ear and into the charging pod so too often in phone calls I’d hear distracting low battery beeps. The Jaybirds hang around my neck and the battery lasts and lasts. Fred Wilson loves his AirPods. I get it. It’s good to try out things and find what works well.

Enjoy your day / evening!
