April 1st suggests it strongly…. well…both ways no doubt. But some how this year, a real spring is much on my mind. Perhaps really seeking “Hope”, which isn’t in the news much?!??!

So just generate it.. LIVE IT….why not?… it will happen anyways…AND is needed!!

Feb 23

I believed I did this a lot. It’s clear now, not enough nor with enough discipline. Luckily there is a fair amount written already. I will generate blogs on this website with perspectives I find provocative

Feb 22

For years I felt I could, and did, critical thinking….consistently….easily

Perhaps egotistically.

Now I see it as a necessary day to day action for everyone, and will blog about it to insure I expand my own ability.

Many have found it useful. More productive. Perhaps not full time. Likely may take some arranging or agreements with others. Does take some set up. And takes some “mind” adjustment also. Not easy for everyone Not a simple decision….but very worthwhile, when all is considered. I’ve been doing it for years. Will never go back to the context I first learned. “Net-net” my life is very much more productive, enjoyable, focused………with benefits to many others besides me!!

Using a form developed @ Loma Linda University Health, for their own staff, as a model, I’ve generated an approach to gathering, in one organized place, all the ideas/promises/dreams I made to myself, over the years. Huge. Surprisingly valuable so far! Provoked me into several other, needed perspectives….Likely almost daily………..@ least for a while

Three checkpoints; 10/12/’20….11/26/’20 and 12/25/’20. We’ll see……….more to come later

Coronavirus may have been moved aside, or be on “a shelf”, for some of us in our ongoing attention span, but it’s surely not gone and has produced an angst about our near future. Maybe that was always there….not as demanding, nor as widely spread as today. Seems to be there for me, for most all of my still huge network. The repetitive response seems to be …..wait…ponder….watch…read…listen …. wonder…….substituting those six perspectives [ like below] for as much as possible, of the ongoing “angst”. Check back in a few weeks for any shift, @ least in my opinion.

LIKELY I WAS A “CONTROL FREAK” MOST OF MY PROFESSIONAL LIFE,.TRYING TO KEEP IT UNNOTICED ?!?!? NOW…. WITH CD-19, PLUS DEMONSTRATIONS IN MANY CITIES, PLUS MY OWN ADVANCING AGE [ NOW WELL INTO MY 87TH YEAR]…..”CONTROL” IS CLEARLY NOT USEFUL, NOR EVEN POSSIBLE. ANYMORE, IN MY VISION. HOW DOES ONE RESPOND? WE WATCH/LISTEN/READ/BE AWARE……ADJUST !!… AND WAIT. REQUIRING PATIENCE & HUMILITY. NEVER TWO OF MY STRONG SUITES. SO TIME TO REALLY LEARN SOME BASICS, @ LEAST FOR ME. MAYBE OTHERS…….

Jun 25

With CD-19 still not fully understood [1] by most of us, plus the equally broad, deep feelings, or views manifested in the [2]demonstrations/ riots, and as many businesses struggle to pick up [3]where they would like……normal.,expected, or even “New Normal”, that is, mostly unknown!!…….. is not descriptive enough. Basic re-think seems necessary. This of course requires “un-learning” beyond the thoughts, habits, attitudes, many of us grew up living by! Such change is very hard for individuals, and often harder for groups, and organizations. Where can innovation help? How much is enough? Is this situation different? Are we willing to pay the price?………@ the pace required……..??

AND with what connections?……..

May 21

Maybe in its last month, more will show, as the summer season begins. Likely also uncertainty re. influx of tourists/seasonal families, etc. States, cities, towns, even beaches, all with different rules/protocols. Most thinkers in my network say……..just watch, listen to multiple sources, stay agile, expect surprises in areas/topics heretofore not planned for!!!…sometimes building on each other outside of the current reality ….and sometimes close to others who seem not to care @ all re. personal hygiene, or “mandated rules”. Yes a very different world for any business/operation/life process to be “normal”. How much change can we handle individually/in groups??

Apr 11

Sunny and about 48 degrees this Saturday afternoon……..A whisper of Spring? We went for a ride. Island Ferry’s not running?? Hyannis is empty. Some restaurants advertising home cooked “takeouts” with curb-side attention available. People running or dog walking. Little else………As expected, but very different. Everyone, here and elsewhere, waiting, wondering, worried….We are both doing things that might have been done sometime ago…..organizing passwords, cleaning closets, reading, etc. One day @ a time…!!!..we shall see……..

Mar 19

Can hardly believe how many things I’ve forgotten, since the last blog………. e.g., passwords, how to navigate on this system…….coming back slowly. I’ll be 86 in a few more weeks. Expecting to live much longer, I’m caught-up by the idea of other changes, perhaps each year will bring?! Unless I work to slow it down, with reasonable focus. Hopefully that answer will be apparent to quick observation, right here on this website.

We’ll see

Feb 04

Some people do. I’m more used to my Lenovo and its features…… barely used the cell phone for chess, for client contact/answers, for inquiry. Its a ;earning process. will get more important/fundamental to everyone. Not just those growing up being dependent, in some form of “hand-held. The digitual word takes us there….hopefully I’ll be a fast creative user!!
