The last 4 blogs entered below …… ALL provide a strong background to several current personal intentions:

1.- I plan to post weekly, on an average, some opinion, perspective, insight that I judge useful to share with my still emerging, huge, network

2.-I have shared access with carefully select members of my network, to me and to all my materials, which are being increasingly transferred from my office here on Cape Cod to several protected sections of the website.

3.-I will review/update the entire website [created in the early 1990’s……and in it’s present style/shape since 2011. It’s been a major channel for me ….will be more so……..and likely be a major focus for the rest of my life. More to come!!

Memorial day weekend provided three long wonderful “Spring” like times for pondering/planning this 7th phase of my life , referenced below. It is in fact different. I’ve been documenting how/why, as I ease into my 86th year….Some generalities are listed below……..It’s not a binary sort, as so many things are/were in Information Services. Genuine leadership includes continually searching for, and identifying the appropriate “Tip” point in each situation or issue. Hopefully many are/will be explored on these pages. You’re welcome to join in as you see value for you

Just a month or so ago I blogged [below] my view re. this book’s importance and ordered a copy to mark up….a”learning technique” that works for me———underlining… using arrows from one thought/expression to another…bending pages in several ways for quick reference….. making my own marginal notations. etc., etc. Am now doing so happily…and also proud that I was “early”, publicly, pushing that evaluation….for all the reasons stated below. But now, because IT IS worth every bit of my time/energy, reading fully…carefully. I am clear already about the value to me of re-reading it several more times. I will add it to my “core book” list – covered as part of the Master Book List for Leadership Learning Forums, on this website.  Max Tegmark is very optimistic, while being deeply aware of the challenges and un -certaincy we face. His last sentence says it all…..”Our future isn’t written in stone, just waiting to happen to us—-it’s ours to create. Let’s create an inspiring one together”

I hope using the protected part of this website will help some do that!!

Below, dated 4/25 in a comment about “Being a Fast Study”, a  capacity of value for leaders…. that’s been a part of my Leadership Learning Forum Process] LLFP] for years,  we actually highlight a skill required today , perhaps more than ever. The same heightened perspective, in the next “blog” [6/7], referencing the Economist’s issue of 5/6 , focusing on “Data”, builds toward the same importance of knowledge  and comfort, that many of us don’t have today, about the pace/scope of more “advancing technologies (AT)”  than are in my current, 7 months old, list [Poster 444] Post 444 Tech Trends. I’m in discussions, exploration sessions, with clients/network contacts now, about these 13 [acknowledging there are others AT’s to consider – but this list seem more than enough to start for most of us – especially for emerging leaders], and how the 13 combine today with some select leadership capacities[ listed as A- E] that are often not fully operative in some  organizations today.

Surely requires more dialogue. The need for which is clearly manifested by the implications referenced in the last blog [6/16] about “Neural Implants!
