“The Tau of Steves: What You Don’t Know Could Fill a Book”
3/31/19. While it pains me to admit it the Holiday Tau for Steve Zahn, Henry Winkler, Emma the Baroness and Me has been so lackluster lately I didn’t even list our TauBit to give it a low ranking. So on to the life of birth crimes …
Random ones that make me want change my sign.
File under “What was I thinking?” Oh, wait nobody said I couldn’t combine two Holiday Taus to make a stronger, more relevant Holiday Tau.
So part one belongs to Mr. Smith. My natural inclination is truly to ask the ‘why’ question maybe not to the same extent that I did and you did when we discovered how to exasperate our parents, right? “Mommy, why is the sky blue?” “Well … hmm … because … light from the sun turns on the blue color, right Daddy?” “Why?” “Ask your Daddy!” “Why?”
So I get the first part, but I’m pretty sure I’d skip “What” in favor of “How”. As in how do I apply my new understanding.

The Holiday Tau for the two, Winwood and Wonder, kinda, sorta round out my experience.
When I teach seminars, workshops or present to an audience and, especially when I break down a topic into next steps I have to understand it inside and out. I agree with those people who say you learn the most out of teaching someone else how to do something.
And by taking yourself through each step answering the string of “whys” and “hows” you come to the “whats” as in what happens next, what about, and one of my favorites what if …?
“5” Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69: “When explaining something, you’ll come to understand it with new clarity and most likely develop the next phase of the idea too.” Taurus
