S1 E53 – High 5’s for Tau Secrets Revealed

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

Summer June 2019

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “You’ve got a secret that helps you move through events with grace: Change itself doesn’t hurt.  What hurts is our resistance to change.” Scorpio

Researcher’s Note:  By this time, Day 53 of my 1-year experiment, on June 22, I began saving a little time in my process of curating Holiday Mathis sayings in the print edition of The Los Angeles Times.

It meant all I’d have to do was search through a half a dozen statements printed next to the crossword puzzle to compare to my source document  in which I recorded all 12 from the previous day.

Where was the last Steve McQueen TauBit (sign) and the Steve Jobs’ and the Steve Carell and the Steve Aoki?

By bolding the TauBit (Scorpio or Aries or Sagittarius), it made it easier to locate the last one to copy and paste under the new date and then type over it. 

It wouldn’t be the last time I sought efficiencies.

What’s been going on?  

I rediscovered my “CareerVentures DRAFT” which encapsulated what I branded as “Secrets for turning your passions into profits. 

The world was changing dramatically.  I wanted to document it, extract lessons learned and offer the best practices to clients. 

During the six years of moonlighting — getting up every morning at 5 am and writing for two hours before working in my day job as a Senior Vice President coaching executives how to find another job in the Southern California region, I realized that journal could be used another way. 

Through sophisticated “knowledge chunking,” something I had learned as a Chief Knowledge Officer and a Chief Learning Officer, the journal emerged as one of the first ebooks. 

While researching the top 10 trends everyone should plan their career around, I fell into a venture guidance contract where I coached entrepreneurs with start up ideas and products. 

That ebook also opened the door for co-authoring “Adapt! How to Survive and Thrive in the Changing World of Work” 

And that book, opened the door for the 2-year curriculum of online tools, tips and templates for my Executive MBA clients, as I advise them to change careers, buy a business or franchise and launch a start-up, consulting or coaching practice.  And, for the more adventurous of them, to take advantage of the Mobile Knowledge Company opportunities.

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

My first blog post included a poem by Portia Nelson included in her book,” There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk” which she calls, “Autobiography in Five Short Chapters”. I feel it’s at the heart of Smith’s Holiday Tau.

“5”  Steve Smith, 30:The path to fulfilled wishes is littered with impediments, all of which you will rise up and over.” Gemini

Leave it to the Holiday Tau for G&G for describing a profound TauBit of wisdom we all should understand

“5”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61: “If you can’t do anything about it, then it’s not a problem.  Rather, it’s a circumstance.  Change what you can; accept the rest.” Libra

Haha.  What was I thinking?  Keeping a journal filled with TauBits of wisdom collected daily throughout a year?  

“5  Steve Harvey, 62: “The level of frustration you feel directly corresponds to how far off the mark the situation is from your expectation of it.” Capricorn

Unless you refer back to Nash’s Holiday Tau from yesterday and imagined problems aren’t the same as delusions, fantasies and misplaced beliefs — “Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire: A 500-Year History” by Kurt Andersen.

“5”  Steve Nash, 45: “Imagined problems can have as much impact (if not more) as real problems can have.  The good part about imagined problems is that they can be solved the instant you see reality.” Aquarius
