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

Spring

May 2019

“3”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Poke around to get to the story behind the story, as jumping to conclusions will surely lead to error.” Scorpio

Should we pity the plight of retailers? That was the question addressed in an article on 5/5/19 about how Walmart took advantage of 4 trends other primary brick and mortar retailers missed or didn’t capitalize on.  Does that count?

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

As a Systematic-Professional, Idea Packager who favors autonomy over just about everything else, yup I understand …

“4”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): As you do what’s right for you, you’ll probably be fully aware that it’s not what some people would have you do.” Aries

I’d twist Aoki’s Holiday Tau to emphasize I’ve put time and energy in to running enough scenarios to anticipate good and bad stuff coming our way to pivot into another direction.  At least I like to think so.

“5”  Steve Aoki, 41: You’re responsible and cautious enough to know when the situation requires a different approach.” Sagittarius

I had a 5-year run which was one of the most fun I had orchestrating cultural change doing what was right.  One of my co-conspirators called what we had going was a license to steal.  As long as it was moving the needle towards a “Climate for Innovation” we were appreciated.  But, when our senior executive sponsor couldn’t resist the temptations headhunters persistently dangled in front of him it was over.  What took five years to institutionalize fell apart in 6 months.

“4”  Steve Harvey, 62: The life you’ve lived has sometimes been big, other times small. Know which scale you’re dealing with.” Capricorn

To be honest, except from being a fan, I can’t tell you why I stole Nash’s Holiday Tau.

“2” Steve Nash, 45: The help will come from somewhere — maybe not the place that promised to give it.  But it’s coming.” Aquarius
