S2 E50 — 5 Fundamental Uncertainties

How will our world unfold on the other side of this pandemic?  Back to normal? Or something entirely different?

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

“4”  Steve Howey, 42:Certain ideas stir up uncomfortable feelings of insecurity — an efficient phenomenon you can get excited about, because it brings you to the precise thing you can work on to get strong.” Cancer

Hi and welcome to Friday’s Episode 50 in Season 2 of  “My Pandemic Year Experiment” on this 22nd day of May in the spring of 2020.  

Season 1 and 2 are a two-year examination of how bits of wisdom changed during the “normal” pre-pandemic and then in this unfolding pandemic year.

Context

More from the introduction to “The world remade by COVID-19 Scenarios for resilient leaders | 3-5 years.” 

As the COVID-19 pandemic began to sweep across the globe, some of the world’s best-known scenario thinkers came together to explore different ways the unfolding crisis might play out—and what its effects could be on businesses and societies around the world. 

Yesterday I listed the context within the pandemic future may be shaped in the near and long-term with Deloitte and Salesforce’s list of 19 uncertainties.

One of their basic questions they ask, and we all are probably asking now is, what will change based on what’s happening now before our eyes?

Under a heading I feel is so descriptive, “A World Remade” they build the case for how this pandemic is a global crisis which is unlike any other we can remember.  

If you go anywhere outside of your pod you know frontline workers, health care workers and researchers have been taking measures to slow the spread.

But, now they say more than a billion people around the globe can no longer lead a “normal” life.

Can we say with any certainty how the virus will infect and spread and what as a consequence the pandemic will leave as a mark on societies?

Nope.

Somewhat reassuring, the authors and collaborators believe the pandemic will end.  But, will life return to “normal” and if not, then what?

Their purpose for their report is to: 

    • Explore how trends we see during the pandemic could shape what the world may look like in the long term 
    • Have productive conversations around the lasting implications and impacts of the crisis 
    • Identify decisions and actions that will improve resilience to the rapidly changing landscape 
    • Move beyond “recovering” from the crisis and toward “thriving” in the long run

Now, then are the top 5 “fundamental uncertainties” they explore.  

    1. Just how severe is the pandemic and how will it spread?  
    2. Will countries collaborate with each other?
    3. Is the health care system up to the challenge? 
    4. What are the economic consequences of the crisis? 
    5. Are we in this together or will the crisis response divide us further?

Evidence

Wow, how do you start getting your head wrapped around the challenge?  It seems daunting, to say the least!

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

“4”  Steve Howey, 42:Certain ideas stir up uncomfortable feelings of insecurity — an efficient phenomenon you can get excited about, because it brings you to the precise thing you can work on to get strong.” Cancer

Nobody enjoys facing such a high degree of uncertainty, doubt and fear about their future.  At least trying to find your bearings within the context of Deloitte and Salesforce’ work may help in your navigation.

“4”Steve Kerr, 54:There are things about yourself you cannot change, and things you can absolutely change. Knowing the difference is a key to happiness. You’ll be inclined to work on yourself. The best work you can do is around acceptance.” Libra

Yup, there’s shock, and bargaining.  There’s anger and resentment.  There’s resistance, but then there’s adaption and accommodation.  Resilience eventually leads to thriving instead of barely surviving if you learn to anticipate.

“4”  Steve Aoki, 41: People don’t have to agree with you in order to be your friend. You have plenty of friends you don’t agree with. The manner in which you disagree — with respect, tact and diplomacy — is an agent of trust and bonding.” Sagittarius

And, I noticed in yesterday’s list of 19 critical uncertainties that trust showed up in two categories — “Levels of societal trust” and “Levels of trust in political systems” — are they so intertwined that trust will weigh heavily on the shape of the “new normal” in a post-pandemic world?

“3”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): You’re not trying to be competitive or show anyone up. But as you follow your heart, you gain insights, skills and other qualities that make the people around you want to up their game.” Pisces

So let’s hope so, so degrees of trust — and truthiness — increase as we all up our games.

Gotta tell you I can’t not see his lead character (Mickey Haller, Bosch’s half brother) as anyone else but Matthew McConaughey.

Context

On April, 6 in 2020, Deloitte Consulting LLP and Salesforce listed 19 uncertainties from Society, Technology, Economy, Environment and Politics likely to influence how our world could unfold after the pandemic crisis.

Sometimes, just listing unsettling threats and uncertainties helps.

The details are contained in their collaboration in, “The world remade by COVID-19 Scenarios for resilient leaders | 3-5 years.”

    • The focus on leadership signifies the report’s audience is for business, industry and government entities.  
    • How those organizations react largely influence how conditions for good or bad will shift that impact on us,  directly or indirectly,  as employees, consultants, freelancers, customers and citizens.

For your consideration listed by the collaborators by society, technology, economy, environment and politics.

Society 

    • Levels of societal trust 
    • Psychological impacts after quarantine 
    • Impacts on different generations 
    • Long-term impacts on education 

Technology 

    • Attitudes toward data-sharing 
    • Speed of technological innovation 
    • Long-term effects on the workplace 
    • Types of new technology adopted

 Economy 

    • Speed of economic recovery 
    • Distribution of economic growth 
    • Impacts on inequality 
    • Shifts to new business models 

Environment 

    • Focus on fighting climate change 
    • Reduction of emissions 
    • Investments in renewable energy 

Politics

    • Long-term impacts on governments 
    • Impacts on public policy and regulation 
    • Levels of trust in political systems 
    • Changes in election methodologies

Will all these influences pressure leaders to the same degree?  Probably not.  

And some will ebb and flow over the three to five year time frame.  

You never know when opportunities emerge, but if you don’t anticipate and act when the window opens you may be left behind.

Today’s Holiday Birthday: 

 “Your kindness radiates in all directions including toward yourself, and this fortifies and emboldens you to new heights of originality. You’ll fascinate, draw a crowd, sell to it and fund an enterprise you wholeheartedly believe in. How satisfying to know you’re making the kind of difference the world really needs now.

Is it too late to petition my mom for a new birthday, or do I just have to steal this one?

“5”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: If you wait until you are stirred to do a thing, it will be too late. To take advantage of a brief window of opportunity, you’ll have to move before you are ready and act before you are sure.”  Taurus

Granted it’s very difficult to navigate waves of change when you’ve lost your bearings.  But, there’s no time like the present to take some educated guesses how rippling-effects may game out.

“5”  Steve Smith, 30: Accept your fixed traits, and learn to highlight them, or work around them as needed. Every personality trait has within it the potential to be a worst or best quality and will be both, depending on when you look.” Gemini

Not only do your overused strengths turn into weaknesses, but if you know your Myer-Briggs Temperament I can identify the best and worst type of organization for you to choose and at what stage of their growth or decline.

“4”  Steve Howey, 42:Sometimes you doubt the malleability of identity. But when you think about how different you were 10 years ago, it’s clear that change is inevitable and never stops. Believe in your aspirations.” Cancer

And, consider how the ripple-effect of the Great Recession effected your employability. What have you learned since then?

“4”  Steve Harvey, 62:You can’t become who you want to be by doing the same activities you were doing. You’ll change it up and be pleasantly surprised by what you learn about yourself.” Capricorn

Exactly my point to Mr. Howey.

“3”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): It’s all falling into place for you. The elements are settling before you, all within your reach. Later you’ll be able to jostle things around and make them fit a little better. For now, let it happen.” Pisces

Are they, or is it really just too early to tell?

S3 E28 — Why I Stole Your Daily Horoscope for a Year

According to Harry Bosch in Michael Connelly’s detective series, it’s a cardinal sin to turn away from momentum.  Momentum drives me to writing the 1-year experiment report by picking up where I left off.

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

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Of course, you want to focus on what’s important, but today brings some confusion as to what fits the category. Hint: It’s small, emotional in nature and couldn’t happen on any other day.” Scorpio

Hi and welcome to Thursday’s Episode 28 in Season 3 of  My Paradoxically Normal Year” on this 15th day of April in the spring of 2021 — which is a three-year examination of how bits of wisdom changed during the “normal” pre-pandemic year and then in the pandemic year, and now months after.

Context

Last time I shared the pitch for bringing more Steves into the world! Heck, we’re an endangered species if you follow the numbers. 

Stymied at first to name any famous Steves, Google results provided 120 and with a little sleight of hand I listed them according to their horoscopes.

Today I’m outlining sections of the report:

Introduction 

Defining terms — What does Tau mean; Life as an art form in a natural experiment;

The chain of events leading to the 1-year natural experiment including creating and maintaining 6 WordPress websites, a blog taking a peak behind the scenes of self-publishing, crowdfunding, and working for yourself;  

Which points to Patreon, a crowdfunding platform; and 

The inspiration behind turning to Holiday Mathis Scorpio sayings starting on 2/24/19;

Methodology 

Conducted 1-Year Experiment — 2/24/19 to 3/29/20;

On Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays

Tau of 19 Famous Steves 

          • Steve Harvey, 62 (December 22 – January 20) Capricorn
          • Steve Nash, 45 (January 21 — February 19) Aquarius
          • Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011) (February 20 — March 20) Pisces
          • Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980) (March 21 – April 20) Aries
          • Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56 (April 21 – May 21) Taurus (Addition part way through)
          • Steve Smith, 30; Stevie Nicks, 72  (May 22 – June 21) Gemini (Added part way through)
          • Steve Howey, 42 (June 22 – July 22) Cancers 
          • Steve Carrell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69  (July 23 – August 22) Leo
          • Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61; Stephen King, 72 (August 23 – September 23) Virgo (Added part way through)
          • Steve Kerr, 54 (September 24 – October 23) Libra
          • Steve Zahn, 51 (October 24 – November 22) Scorpio
          • Steve Aoki, 41 (November 23 – December 21) Sagittarius

Initial plan for coding the Holiday Tau into categories to compare and analyze TauBits of Wisdom.

          1. W —Wisdom for “If you could go back in time and warn your younger self, what warning would you issue?” 
          2. N —The name (why a mother would choose Steve for a baby to grow into; choose Steve for horoscope intuition) — prime-the-pump kind of Steve-only and Friends of Steves putting in their two cents; 
          3. Y —1-year experiment — Anything, especially for intuitors and actual magical thinking (Norway vacation should extend the 1-year time frame)
          4. S — Something silly inspired by Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s “Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life” but she chose the alphabet for categorizing small moments — This could be 52 weekly sayings for a year.

In the first 30 day I didn’t really know what the patterns would be until the Holiday Tau showed me. 

Changes As the Year Unfolded

          • Time frame lengthened to make up for two vacations in July and September of 2019. 
          • I needed to sort quickly through 12 sets of Steves first by eliminating about 50% in the daily selection process and second through scoring on a scale of low (1) to high (5)
          • For more in depth tracking and comparisons I switched to a representative sample of four horoscopes.  
          • Settled on changing the categories to practical projects, work, wisdom and legacy and relationships and intimacy. 
          • My monthly reviews eliminate all scored Holiday Taus except for those ranked “5”
          • Those, were segregated from horoscope and from a Steve, to be used as a standalone TauBit of Wisdom.

Findings

Four Representative Samples: (Grand Total 421)

“For Steve Zahn, Emma the Baroness and Me”

TauBits of Wisdom by Category (Totals 139)

          • Practical Projects: 36
          • Work: 24

          • Inner Dreams and Intimacies: 41

          • Practical Projects: 28
          • Work: 24

          • Inner Dreams and Intimacies: 13

Evidence

But, what about today?

So, the beat goes on with today’s crop of Holiday Tau. Zahnny does your TauBit of Wisdom fit so well today because of selection or confirmation bias?  Either way, I like it a lot.

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Of course, you want to focus on what’s important, but today brings some confusion as to what fits the category. Hint: It’s small, emotional in nature and couldn’t happen on any other day.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Is today your birthday?  Y’all know it’s not mine, right? But 10 weeks is 10 weeks, so let’s check back as well as in May and August!

Today’s Holiday Birthday: 

Here come the exciting influences! There are definite emotional benefits from the changes over the next 10 weeks, and you’ll find your mood on a steady rise. Because of this, you’ll attract different situations in May than you do in August. You will leverage one resource for another more brilliantly suited to your needs.

Steve, I’m feeling the rhythm in your Holiday Tau, especially “passages of life” which is the theme for my “Volume Three Manuscript” and illuminates my “back door” approach to composing it from this 1-year experiment (and maybe the next?!)

“5” Steve Aoki, 41: “It is normal to, at times, feel uncomfortable, displaced or lost in the unfamiliar. These feelings accompany the passages of life you will one day be most proud of.” Sagittarius

Oh, I have no problem ignoring the opinion of others, like I’m sure you don’t either Steve.  But, I’m not feeling yours today, so I’m going to ignore it.

“3”  Steve Harvey, 62: “It is so hard for you to take a compliment, and yet it is so easy for you to believe someone’s unwanted critique. In general, this is a good day to ignore the opinions of others.”  Capricorn

What are you now, a mind reader, as well as an NBA Coach?  I’m grabbing your TauBit of Wisdom with two hands and an strapping in for the ride!

“5”  Steve Nash, 45:An intriguing future is taking form in your imagination. This is just one of many possibilities, so why are you already putting limits on it? Practice unbound visualization and watch your reality free up.” Aquarius

    • “True Believers,” the novel by Kurt Andersen (which seems to precede Fantasyland)? I like how he goes back and forth from now to the ‘60s in which the main character is writing a memoir, but needs “Okays” from her friends who had been hiding a secret for 40+ years that could ruin their careers?  Like, what’s my equivalent
    • “Disappearing Through the Skylight” by O.B. Hardison, Jr. which proceeded “Consilience” by a decade.  Hardison’s been described as a polymathic renaissance man who wrote, “… Nature has slipped, perhaps finally beyond our field of vision.”  What does it mean for “… science, history, art and architecture, music, language, ultimately, for humanity”? This one provides missing chunks of understanding where we came from and where we’re going.

S2 E48 — Tracking Millennials from One Resort to Another

We’ve seen this pattern before.  We discovered it and tracked a migration of 20-something lifestyles (Gen-Y, Millennials) who disappeared from one resort town and reappeared in another resort town as the effects of the Great Recession slowly diminished.

Hi and welcome to Sunday’s Episode 48 in Season 2 of  “My Pandemic Year Experiment” on this 17th day of May in the spring of 2020.

Context

Santa Cruz’s unemployment surges as workers counting on jobs materializing or reopening on the historic boardwalk get the bad news.  

The same occurs across the West in towns blessed and yet dominated by resort attractions — summer and winter adventures in mountains, on rivers and lakes.  

The tourist seasons deliver severe blows to the younger quality-of-lifers in their early and mid-20s.  

We discovered it and tracked a migration of 20-something lifestyles (Gen-Y, Millennials) disappeared from one resort town and reappeared in another resort town as the effects of the Great Recession slowly diminished.  

But, this time around there might be hope for Millennial remote-workers. 

Those with jobs in the distributed working knowledge industries — who, unlike their younger brothers and sisters just graduating from college and high school yearn for adventures.

Where?  Anywhere away from the suburbs and urban centers — just to get away, but who become dependent on the tourist trade.  

Working remotely gives you a steady income while those less fortunate around you in pristine resort towns fall victim to the ripple effects and can’t make it on subsistence wages.  

Have you noticed all those Zoomed entertainers with rustic wood backgrounds wishing everyone else safety and health like they enjoy all hunkered down in Montana? 

In a vicious cycle, the invasion of celebrities triggering the increase in second-home property values spike homeowner property taxes.

The effects ripple from there. 

The locals are forced with gut-wrenching decisions like the three long-time locals in Whitefish, Montana we profiled.

Their dilemma led to our discovery of lifestyle profile shifts in neighborhood communities and that led to figuring out how to use birds-of-a-feather bucket lists to find a new town and community waiting for them with open arms.

Evidence

“3”  Steve Zahn, 51: “No matter how high you rise in position, you retain the no-nonsense outlook you started with. You are skeptical of values based on anything other than human worth.” Scorpio

Well, yes if there is a pattern I follow it, definitely  honoring the development and worth of those I advise or instruct.

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “A walk can be a creative and mystical experience. You’ll see sights that affirm your physical course along the way and your general trajectory on the path of life.” Aries

I’m a firm believer in body and mind fitness for mental health. Plus an opening poem in the first chapter of my first book begins with a “hole” in a sidewalk and progresses to choosing a new path to follow in your life.

“4” Steve Kerr, 54:There is success in your current course of action, although you will need to remind yourself of this and also incentivize and motivate yourself to continue in kind. Consistency motivates success.” Libra

I’m sure this is true for other days, but I don’t feel the need today.

“3”  Steve Aoki, 41: You’ll solve problems all day long — problems of different scope and complexity, some easy, others expensive, some that seem pervasive, others you feel privileged to have.  Sagittarius

Sorry, this bit of wisdom sounds just too generic for me today.

“5” Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): You will stick to your values even when you don’t want to, it’s hard or the rewards don’t come. Your reason? It’s the adult thing to do. The depth of character it takes to stick to values is a reward in and of itself.” Pisces

To be honest, I just don’t see any other way.  Yes it is the adult thing to do, but what else is there?

“5”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61; Stephen King, 72: Beware of quick fixes, as today they are likely to fall down in both quickness and fixing. Small changes made consistently over a long period of time will give you the best results.” Virgo

I agree, but why do we fall for the temptation to cut corners only to fall victim to things that seem too good to be true and are?

“You’re a part of nature, and it will feel better to think and act in accordance with that.” Holiday Mathis, Creators Syndicate Inc

Evidence

 Which bits of wisdom were nudging me in that direction?

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “If you are working too hard at something, then you’ll become resentful and bitter. To figure out a better, smarter, shorter route is not the lazy thing; rather, it’s what’s best for all.” Scorpio

Trial and error, that’s how I’d describe the ongoing learning process I encounter with the Patreon platform.  Is it ideal?  Hell, no, wait is that bitterness?  

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

“3”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: Everywhere you look, you’ll see the attention-seeking traps of our narcissistic age. You are called by modesty and service; in this way, you’ll stand out from the crowd.  Taurus

Hi, would you mind taking a photo of Emma the Baroness and me?  We don’t want everyone to notice how frequently we’re posing for our selfies.

“5”  Steve Smith, 30; Stevie Nicks, 72: What task will move the needle for you today? What is the one thing that’s going to make you feel accomplished when your head hits the pillow tonight? Start with that. Anything else is gravy.” Gemini

Not sure I’m looking forward to gravy stains on my pillow, but publishing moves the needle to mix metaphors.

“5”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61; Stephen King, 72:Creation is one process. Analysis is another process. Separate the two, and you’ll be comfortable and focused inside each separate process. This will bring about your best work.” Virgo

Well stated.  Either I’m so analytical about my work that I second, third and fourth guess my creative talent.  Or I’m so scattered following the squirrels and all the distractions of my creative process following my intuition that I have no idea how far off the mark I’ve become.  Wait, what should I do?

“5”  Steve Aoki, 41: Relationships are collaborative, creative efforts.  Whom you get into a relationship with makes a huge difference.” Sagittarius

If you only knew Emma the Baroness like I do you wouldn’t need this reminder.

S2 E52 — What’s So Wrong with Conventional Wisdom Unless …

… We’re in for a period of applying intelligence, indulging curiosity, playing around with different perspectives and taking part in extraordinary discussions that could only happen at this historic moment.

Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: Creativity can only be accessed in the present. To obsess about the future or ruminate about the past isn’t creative. Those behaviors can be useful, but a very small dose goes a long way.”  Leo

Hi and welcome to Sunday’s Episode 52 in Season 2 of  “My Pandemic Year Experiment” on this 24th day of May in the spring of 2020.  

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

Context

Can you predict the future?  Hell, no!  Does that stop anyone from trying, well not everyone, right?  In very uncertain times like these what we need I believe is scenario thinking instead. With it we can creatively prepare for and clarify potential risks when we choose a path forward.

And, that my friends is why I’m continuing my series drawing upon the report from Deloitte and Salesforce’s “The world remade by COVID-19 Scenarios for resilient leaders | 3-5 years.”

Why am I a big fan of scenarios — other than they are just so much fun to flesh out? 

Scenarios are stories about what the future may be like, created through a structured process  to stretch thinking, challenge conventional wisdom, and drive better decisions today. They are not predictions about what will happen. They are hypotheses about what could happen, designed to open our eyes to new opportunities or hidden risks. 

Here’s what they and we are after — trying to get our heads around what kinds of changes can we expect as we invest our livelihoods and embrace our social isolation sacrifices through a novel global uncertainty.

The good folks at Deloitte and Salesforce encourage us to challenge our assumptions.  

imagine how the things you were sure would happen could now be on a different course. Avoid the temptation to conclude that the crisis will accelerate the changes you already expected or believed were inevitable. 

Here’s an 8-step process of strategic exploration I normally follow. We’re now on step 4.

    1. State the specific decision to be made —to answer the question we’ve all been asking ourselves, what will have changed as a result of what’s happening to us right now.
    2. Identify the major environmental forces impacting the decision —the team identified 19 uncertainties and 5 critical uncertainties with two dimensions along which 2 critical uncertainties will drive the overall impact.
    3. Develop four plausible and qualitatively different possibilities for each force — 1.  The Passing Storm, 2. Good Company, 3. Sunrise in the East and 4. Lone Wolves.
    4. Assemble the alternatives for each force into internally consistent stories

Here’s how Deloitte and Salesforce summarized 5 critical forces playing out in each of 4 scenarios to assemble those forces into internally consistent stories. 

    1. Social cohesion rises with a heightened appreciation for interpersonal and familial relationships (Passing Storm); is maintained as society shifts to become more “purpose-driven” (Good Company); shifts to an increased emphasis on the “good of the whole” (Sunrise in the East); and falls, as xenophobia and suspicion of others become the norm (Lone Wolves).
    2. Technology advances stay on course as previous holdouts move online (Passing Storm); take center stage with large companies driving solutions in areas such as health tech and biotech (Good Company); are accelerated as more data-sharing allows for advances in AI and other advanced tech capabilities (Sunrise in the East); and are divergent among different markets, with a focus on advances in surveillance and control measures (Lone Wolves)
    3. Worldwide economies enter an extended recession with increased income inequality (Passing Storm); are disrupted with a growing concentration of power among large companies (Good Company); shrink due to the prolonged nature of the virus (Sunrise in the East); and are left in turmoil as global supply chains are disrupted (Lone Wolves)
    4. Focus on climate change is renewed as global collaboration provides hope for progress (Passing Storm); is mixed with some sustainability-minded companies investing in renewable energy (Good Company); is deemphasized as economic recovery is prioritized (Sunrise in the East); and declines as countries shift toward energy independence (Lone Wolves)
    5. Governments around the world gain trust and international organizations such as WHO grow in relevance (Passing Storm); partner with large corporations, who step up as part of the solution (Good Company); look to the east for guidance, as Asian countries effectively manage the virus (Sunrise in the East); and adopt isolationism as they attempt to contain the virus within (Lone Wolves)

Evidence

“4”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Because you have big plans, you can’t afford to wait for inspiration. You’ll simply show up and work whether you feel motivated or not. Inspiration will kick in eventually.” Scorpio

So I feel this almost every day.  Waiting for inspiration only means staring at a blank screen for far too long.  Two activities usually work for me.  The first I start the morning with, even before the first cup — scrolling through all the Apple News feeds I search to curate the days stories @Knowlabs. 

Something triggers an inspiration or a loose (at 5:30 am) connection for one of my passion projects.  The other is this habit on Thursdays through Fridays of curating TauBits of Wisdom because it stretches me to twist it somehow into what I want to say.

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Today’s Holiday Birthday:  

A lucrative wave of business occurs as your interests meld with the common interest and you provide a valuable service. Years of experience suddenly add up to well-deserved mastery. Smooth will be the road of relationships and smoother still will be your approach to getting into and out of them as the case may be.

I can only wish for two reasons.  I’m not seeing it and because this ain’t my birthday.  If it’s your’s Happy Birthday and enjoy your well-deserved mastery and smooth relationships.

“5”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: Creativity can only be accessed in the present. To obsess about the future or ruminate about the past isn’t creative. Those behaviors can be useful, but a very small dose goes a long way.”  Leo

Amen brother Steves.  Rumination and obsession lead to a road of ruin — or at least blocked creativity.  Switch gears and close your favorite screen. 

“3”  Steve Kerr, 54:No one is entirely to blame for the situation they are in, but everyone is entirely responsible for their own situation. You’ll get the help you need and give the help that is needed in the name of improvement.” Libra

I almost passed on selecting Steve’s, until I realized we individually didn’t start the fire of COVID-19 burning out of control, but we can get vaccinated when it’s an option and we can wear our masks.

“4”  Steve Harvey, 62:You’ll have an excellent sense of where to focus, and it only gets better as the day progresses. At the end of the day, you’ll feel like you spent your energy on all the right things.  Capricorn

I know it’s really tough to know where to focus right now.  I only hope presenting this Deloitte and Salesforce report will make things a little easier and that makes me feel I’ve spent today’s energy on the right things, then.

“5” Steve Nash, 45:You will become aware of something you have been, until now, only unconsciously aware of. This is big. “Ah-ha” moments don’t come with fireworks. Nonetheless, they change everything.  Aquarius

When I’m not, my other trick is to ask, “What would Leo da V do?” to give me permission to procrastinate like a Renaissance Master and free associate like a dog on a walk who abruptly takes off with the first sniff of squirrel no matter what the destination was supposed to be.

The Holiday Forecast for the Week Ahead:  

… suggests we (shouldn’t) be quick to land on conclusions, definitions or labels. It’s not the moment to listen to uneducated opinions or even educated ones. Messes could very well become successes and vice versa, and it’s too soon to tell how the chips will fall. Time will tell, and anyone who tries to preempt time’s decree will later have to content with their own bad taste while eating their words. … we’re in for a period of applying intelligence, indulging curiosity, playing around with different perspectives and taking part in extraordinary discussions that could only happen at this historic moment. Set out to have fun, or better yet to be the fun. Above all, don’t take yourself too seriously, as that would only ruin the magic. The lighter a heart is, the higher it can fly.

S2 E46 — Whimsy Passion Project or Epic Novel of Adventure?

What were you doing this time last year?  Do you remember? I discovered nuggets from a little over a year ago — Tau Bits — which unlock mysterious inspirations.

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

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): Creativity will be abundant.  You’ll tap into it as you choose because you know the route.  A relaxed state is good but not necessary.”Aries

Hi and welcome to Friday’s Episode 46 in Season 2 of  “My Pandemic Year Experiment” on this 15th day of May in the spring of 2020. 

 Season 1 and 2 are a two-year examination of how bits of wisdom changed during the “normal” pre-pandemic and then in this unfolding pandemic year.

Context

Experimentation. 

Living life as an art form in a natural experiment, yeah that’s  the name of the game.  But given the unfolding events and how unexpectedly huge the challenge is, will this turn into a real epic novel of a venture instead of a just whimsy passion project?  

More importantly, what’s this about the warning for expectations not met?  

And is this supposed to be some kind of warning — a snapback to a reminder that my target audience is just 3—5% of the US population who are introverts just like me?

4/19/19 Scorpio: “This is the moment for playing around, which is different that standing sill. Experimentation will show you the way.”

4/14/19 Scorpios: “What you thought would be a quick project is turning into a real epic novel of a venture. Still, this is doable.”

4/11/19 Scorpio: “Even if the project doesn’t work out as expected or the outcome is less than you were going for, the journey that brings people together is always worthwhile.”

4/7/19 Scorpio: “What you’re doing and how you’re thinking aren’t for everyone. You’ll win people by losing people.”

Evidence

“3”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Many make the mistake of assuming they are already so fascinating, talented, worthy, etc., that they don’t need to make an effort.  Set yourself apart by thinking ahead and doing more.” Scorpio

Nah, my mother always told me I was talented and worthy and just a late bloomer.  Mother knows best, y’all! 

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Today’s Holiday Birthday:  

You’ll commit to a process and be transformed by it — not all at once but in small ways throughout the year.  You’ll be paid to do something you would have done for free anyway — wondrous! You’ll get out from under an obligation in August.  You’ll bring loads of attention to the change you want to make in the world.

Okay, then let’s check back in 90 days, eh?

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): Creativity will be abundant.  You’ll tap into it as you choose because you know the route.  A relaxed state is good but not necessary.”Aries

Road trip!  Oh, wait.  I live in a pretty relaxed state and prefer that to one filled with confusion, fear, uncertainty and doubt — FUD.

“5”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: Commit to getting a job done, and follow your instincts.  Those two actions will carry you to solutions and new highs of inspiration.  Taurus

Instincts are good, except mine don’t necessarily lead to getting a job completed.  But I drive new inspirational highs.

“4”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: You’ll be creatively inspired by tried-and-true methods.  Follow the impulse to build on tradition and carry it into the future.”  Leo

I’m hoping what you mean is to follow my nose (where my intuition lies) and continue this burden of citing evidence in some sort of evolving format like this.

“5”  Steve Aoki, 41: Relationships are collaborative, creative efforts.  Whom you get into a relationship with makes a huge difference.  Sagittarius

Who else than my partner and love of my life, Emma the Baroness?

“4”  Steve Harvey, 62:Your feelings often tip you off to things you can’t rationally explain but can also lie with abandon.  Question them as you would any other non evidentiary opinion.” Capricorn

Is this a convoluted way of saying feelings feel and liars lie and just follow the money trail while turning up data and witnesses?

The Tau 12 Months Ago 

“Poke around to get to the story behind the story, as jumping to conclusions will surely lead to error.”

Evidence

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): It’s once again time to check in with yourself on the higher thinking levels. Stop and ask yourself what you believe. Sure, you’ve done this already, but things have changed, and so have you.” Aries

Thanks for the reminder, with juggling so many initiatives at different stages of development it’s easy to forget what’s important.

“5”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: In a sea of retweets and homogenized opinions, you have a chance to put something out into the world that wasn’t there before. People need to hear something that’s not being said. You’re the one to say it.” Taurus

I’m taking this one to heart by claiming my Patreon publication about all the changes we’re facing and what they mean for us.

“5”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61; Stephen King, 72:Confirmation bias suggests that humans tend to believe first and then find supporting evidence second. This order makes it impossible to root out factual truth. Fight the phenomenon. Question your own motives.” Virgo

What’s that old song — people only see what they believe and disregard the rest? The whole point to the first year of my natural experiment is to test out all forms of bias and wonder about what happens in our brain to make us susceptible to confirmation and selection bias in the first place.
