I have found two things to be beneficial in my life.
1. Wandering without agenda.
2. Understanding what is expected out of a relationship.
As we used to say, have the DTR talk.
Determine the relationship.
So, given that I have taken to creating content that I hope will resonate with others, I am at the very least implicitly creating perceived relationships that need to have the DTR talk.
I am not a Spiritual Guru
Though I believe in God, but not really what people say about God.
I am not a Marriage Expert
Though I have been married for almost 20 years to someone who has withstood soul crushing lose and tear inducing joy with me.
I am not a Parenting Expert
Though I have two children that I believe in more than I have ever believed in anyone in my entire life.
I am not a Business Expert
Though I have grown a business 16x's more then its first year by believing firmly in reinvesting in your business, your people, your clients, and community.
I am not a Leadership Talking Head
Though I lead a team of amazing leaders who are trully trying to make a difference everyday.
I am not a Culture Building Genuis
Though I do believe that it is true that culture eats strategy for breakfast.
I am not a Moralist
Though I do believe we must be good to one another, because not being good just doesn't seem to work out well for anyone.
And while I am not those things, I will probably write, share, and create content about those things.
So, if you want to spend some time wandering with a guy who sometimes just wants to see what's over the next hill, you've come to right tribe.
Welcome fellow wander!
