S1 E143 — The Grand Prize Winner

Up against a deadline.  I hunkered down for eight and a half hours, first figuring out how to, and then merging lists of LinkedIn 1st degree people with a list of past clients and co-workers and acquaintances and finally lists of Executive MBA students I advised over the last decade and the list of Executive Mentors I recruited into the program.  

The Tau of Steves: What You Don’t Know Could Fill a Book

Hi and welcome to Saturday’s Episode 143 in the first season of “My 1-Year Natural Experiment” on this 28th day of December in winter of 2019.

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Write about your daily life, including the small details.  You’ll gain objectivity, insight and appreciation that extend inward and outward.” Scorpio


Here’s what I discovered:

Most of my LinkedIn network didn’t include emails, though I should have had access to them.  I’ll have to deal with that later in the next week or so.  I’ve got duplicates and old and new info on them.  I need to create groups.  I guess the name of the game is to get them to self-subscribe to MailChimp or Patreon-based updates.

OMG.  This Holiday Tau might be the grand prize winner.  I really can’t speak for Zahn, Winkler or Emma the Baroness, but I can speak for me. I’ve been journaling for decades as I mentioned earlier in the experiment.  It helped me transition from one career to the next.

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Write about your daily life, including the small details.  You’ll gain objectivity, insight and appreciation that extend inward and outward.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Sure, Steve on some level I probable think this, but I can’t say it’s the overt game I play.

“4”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): You can think of a challenge as an obstacle in your path or as a test to reveal how far you’ve come, how capable you are and where to focus your efforts toward mastery.  Aries

Now, not on the same level as a grand prize winner, but maybe second place goes to Winwood and Wonder’s Holiday Tau.  I’m living through this one all day today.

“5”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69: Creative people can get easily bored by circumstances that don’t inspire them.  But remarkably creative ideas are born by using through that boredom.  Taurus

Can I get a witness?  Who sang that song?  This may be why Emma the Baroness and I have grown in love and acceptance.  As long as we don’t become co-dependent upon each other, right?

“4”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: We’re always changing, just maybe not in the direction we want to.  That’s why everyone needs a witness for an outside perspective.” Leo

My colleague I.G. from my leadership training and consulting days used to query the managers about risk and success before revealing that calculated risk is the stuff of super managing.

“4”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61:Some shrink from danger.  Others seek it.  You do neither.  You meet life as it comes, assess your risk and at.  This is the cool-headed approach of confident living.” Virgo

Seriously, Nash are you going to let your Holiday Tau leave us in suspense? 

“4”  Steve Nash, 45:Minute gestures convey deep and complicated emotions.  Attention flows to certain things and not to others; the trail of that attention is a journey and a story.  Aquarius
