S1 E145 — Three Miles of Coincidental Dancing

Experienced an unexpected coincidence (aren’t they all)  while walking three miles around the lake, lost in my playlist and not really paying attention on New Year’s Day 

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

Hi and welcome to Thursday’s Episode 145 in the first season of “My 1-Year Natural Experiment” on this 2nd day of January in winter of 2020.

“5”  Steve Howey, 42:Life plays its own music.  You have little control over which song comes next and a lot of control over how you dance.  Cancer


I bumped into Tammy, a two-time co-worker and consultant with her daughter on the backside almost directly across from Bagel and Brew.  I’d helped her through her earlier thinking about a consulting website — “I want it to be more than brochureware.”  

She asked me what I’d been up to. I paraphrased my Patreon tag line to try it out — creating digital magazines, blogs and self-publishing a five-book series — and she wanted to see my blog and website.  “You’re on LinkedIn, right?” she asked as we continued on our way.

Today, after three days of updating email addresses and sending my holiday greeting in batches of 40 or 50 at a time, I tried to find Tammy’s email address, but couldn’t. Huh, that’s weird. 

Oh, well I’ll just let her initiate the contact I figured as an awareness and interest scheme. 

Was this coincidence attributable to our Holiday Tau? 

Probably not, but we’ll see where involving Tammy might go. So, I need to make it easy for everyone, even those outside of my 1849 1st degree network-audience to click only on one link which takes them to my Patreon page.

“4”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Dreams can be your wings, but only if you involve other people.  Otherwise, they’re like a virtual reality headset that keeps you isolated.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Haha.  I walked in a zone with its very intentional sound track.  Looking ahead I wanted to find not only TauBits of Wisdom, but love songs as I played one after another in alphabetical order.  If it moved me, I punched the title into my iPhone notes.

Sure, you could say I’m happy about a lot more time I now have which can be devoted to my passion projects like this one. Reconnecting by email with former clients, proteges, mentors and other advisors and consultants feels energizing  — if I can efficiently mount my email campaign.

“4”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): You’re happy about being able to do things you once couldn’t, both new items and ones that go way back.  Aries

Haha.  Tell me about it.  Like WTF.  Why doesn’t this work?  What do I now? But, seriously is there any hope?

“4”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: Questions are like keys to you today and will require a similar finesse, so don’t be afraid to give them a giggle and a twist.” Leo

You guys been listening in, or something?  Your Holiday Tau may be just what I need today!

“5”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61:Sometimes the way to win is to play harder and smarter; sometimes the way to win is not to play at all.  Take a step back for the big strategy.” Virgo

Haha.  Does this count? I’m so close to getting Patreon initially functional and off the ground and have a strategy of sorts to engage 1800+ in my network so let the games begin.

“4”  Steve Aoki, 41: There’s something good in every day, but more things good about today.  You’ll want to keep track of this; take some time to write about it or snap a pic.” Sagittarius

I hear you Harvey.  In fact, right after this I ask, “What would Leo da V do?” a little more often.

“5”  Steve Harvey, 62:Your heart is calm and you creativity is lit.  Being creative is essential to your well-being; you should visit as often as possible.  Capricorn
