What’s Going On?  Hi and welcome to Saturday’s Episode 7 of the Second Season,  My Pandemic Year’s Natural Experiment, on March 7th in the spring of 2020 here in California.

Shifting Opportunities

It’s been 12 and 18 hour days this past week, so spending a fewer hours today compared to the others allowed me to realize my entire email list lives or has lived in the California’s South Coast Region, mostly in Orange County.  

Having been replying to the first few of the personal responses my mass mail today, I see how to beg “forgiveness” in approach to two broad categories:

My “ask” of the mentors I recruited over the last decade has to do with legacy (Volume Three  Manuscript) looking back to their trajectory and broader areas outside of their work life.  

My “ask” of their executive MBA proteges has more to do with Organization Types and Growth Stage profiles (Volume Two Manuscript). 

Since Zahn, Henry Winkler, Emma the Baroness and I missed out on today’s allotment of valuable Holiday Tau, let’s see if there are any we might want to swipe.

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Leave it to our Patron Saint to more succinctly and wisely express what I attempted on this shortened Saturday.

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): Not everyone knows what you know, can do what you can do or wants what you want.  To think about it from another’s point of view will be invaluable today.  Aries

Given early indications about an emerging pandemic will this Holiday Tau for you two iconic musicians turn out to be prescient or are we just panicking over nothing?

“5”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69: You imagine some places with all the zest of one with no intention of going.  Others you imagine carefully, knowing that when the time comes, you’ll go all-in.  Taurus
