S1 E62 – Next Reality?

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

Summer July 2019

“4”  Steve Howey, 42: “This next reality is coming together with the help of your mind’s eye, the intentions of those who need you, and the hand of fate.” Cancer

Welcome to Day 62 of My 1-Year Experiment on this July 11th. What’s been going on? 

I’ve been transcribing four chapters into a draft of what I’m calling “Volume Three” a memoir — legacy of sorts.  This passage reminds me what it was like to be a Dad, right after my kids fly home after a summer visit.

All those things fill in the sweet sorrow. Why do I write all this? Instead of getting on with something else like my computer business, etc? I guess I know tomorrow I’ll be conditioned to get back into my normal work-a-day role with its pressures and deadlines. These memories will be buried deep — almost beyond reach. And I sense there is something important here. Their trip every year brings headaches, but also a part of me surfaces and then goes away for another 11 months.

Given what I’ve been working on, I’m not feeling the relevance of Zahn’s Holiday Tau today.

“2”  Steve Zahn, 51: “You’ve been watching a skilled person and picking up technique.  You’ll soon be solving a problem differently than you did it in the past.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

What about Jobs’ Holiday Tau? Do I?  I’d like to think so.

“4”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “You’ve all the ideas about how a masterful person would show up and complete the task at hand.  Go on and follow in the footsteps of this idealized version of you.” Pisces

What’s my method that McQueen’s Holiday Tau describes? Hmm. Not sure. Could it be writing in my journal over the years to be revisited and edited later? Maybe. So, what has changed?

“3”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “Your method has helped you get the goal several times already, but now something has changed. Adapt.” Aries

Haha. Can I breathe if I’m still under water?  Sure I’ve spent a career so far successfully interpreting what a new boss needs and telling stories how I’ve got the track record to accomplish what they need.  You know, “Fake it until you make it”.

“4”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: “You may be in over your head, but you’re always going to swim somewhere near the top.” Taurus

Wait.  Am In interpreting Howey’s Holiday Tau correctly?  Let’s combine it with WW&C’s to increase the ratings.

“4”  Steve Howey, 42: “This next reality is coming together with the help of your mind’s eye, the intentions of those who need you, and the hand of fate.” Cancer

Nah.

“2”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: “You notice details.  You track behavior.  You ease things about others without having to ask.” Leo

S1 E61 — Investment of Time and Effort

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

Summer July 2019

“4”  Steve Smith, 30: “Study what the others before you did.  It will seem to take forever and then actually save you a lot of time.” Gemini

What’s been going on? Yes, my struggle with WordPress continues.  Their technical documents were, well too technical for me.  

Welcome to Day 61 of My 1-Year Experiment on July 6th.

My intention directed me towards revamping my websites beyond just housing my blogs.  So I clicked on a link inside my administrative page and signed up for my local WordPress meetup. 

This meetup is intended for intermediate to advanced WordPress developers.This month’s topic will be a mish-mash of developery things. 

Oops.

Note: If you have questions or topics outside of the main topic, we won’t turn you away. We’ll reserve the last 30 minutes or so of the meetup for off-topic questions.

Oh, Ok.

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Place yourself in an interesting environment where relationships might develop.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

I feel this is exactly what I’ve been doing through trial and error with WordPress documentation. And Smith’s Holiday Tau holds out hope.  It is taking forever now.

“4”  Steve Smith, 30: “Study what the others before you did.  It will seem to take forever and then actually save you a lot of time.” Gemini

Hmm.  Can’t say Howey’s Holiday Tau fits me today.

“2”  Steve Howey, 42: “The reason you’re on the receiving end is that it’s simply your turn.  So don’t over think it.  Get into gracious-mode and start appreciating this stuff.” Cancer

Wait.  CM&W’s Holiday Tau had me in the first two sentences, but lost me at the tail end.  

“3”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: “The wise one doesn’t necessarily have all of the information.  Because wisdom isn’t so much about holding on to a lot of true facts, as it is about knowing who to be.” Leo

Aoki’s Holiday Tau rings true for me, and may be exactly what will solve my WordPress issues in a couple of days, but I’m witnessing it today.

“2”  Steve Aoki, 41: “History changes.  And context changes everything, as will be well-illustrated today.” Sagittarius

Haha.  If this was all about being Frank, we couldn’t call it The Tau of Steves, now could we.  But, be that as it may perhaps Harvey’s Holiday Tau rings truer that the others.

“4”  Steve Harvey, 62: “It’s important to be very honest in your noticing of yourself.  See what you’re good at.  Be frank about what you’re good at.  Be frank about what you’re not attracted to and what’s hard for you.” Capricorn

Okay, this is a start.  Both for Emma the Baroness and my relationship, but also for my anticipated memoir.

“5”  Steve Nash, 45: “Tell the story about when the flame of passion ignited in you and you’ll feel it flicker again.” Aquarius

Hmm.  What could this be about?  I’ve been using a spreadsheet over the last few years to track which book chapter excerpts appeared in which of six blogs.  Do I need another way of tracking how I spend my time?

“5”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “There’s a decision to be made, and you’re the best one to make it, mostly because you’re the only one you can really trust to follow through on this.  Decide, and set up your system of accountability.” Pisces

S1 E60 — Overlapping Cycles of Life

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

Summer July 2019

“5”  Steve Nash, 45: Break large tasks down into small ones and then plot them out with a reasonable schedule over time.” Aquarius

What’s been going on, besides that unwelcome headache from a holiday celebration of drinking and eating to excess egged on by the fireworks of patriotism? Following my intuition today, July 5th, on Day 60 of My 1-Year Experiment, I pulled up a pdf of “New Lenses Field Guide” and reviewed the last two topics, 

“Fit: Sweet Spot of Overlapping Life, Community, Organizational, Economic and Generational Cycles” 

Finding your sweet spot by integrating lifecycles — anyone can zero in on opportunities to do what you love in a business, social, and quality-of-life climate that you’ll thrive in. Of course, shifting economic cycles, bursting bubbles and political events help or hinder our ability to capitalize on those opportunities

“Live, Love, Work and Play in Four Wealthy Dream Communities” 

In the 16 lifestyle neighborhoods, how do you evaluate six types of real estate opportunities — when to buy, how long to hold, and when to sell? Transplant your business, practice or knowledge company after evaluating seven market cycle indicators. When you do, you can take advantage of real estate markets as they move through up, down and up cycles.

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Of the four Holiday Taus for Steves today, Nash’s connected with me more.  Without reinventing the wheel, I had searched for my “New Lenses Field Guide” as a summary of what I’d already researched and packaged.  But, mostly as an itinerary and a way of writing about the next set of chapters.  Something more practical, I guess.

“5”  Steve Nash, 45: Break large tasks down into small ones and then plot them out with a reasonable schedule over time.” Aquarius

And maybe as a non-fiction author and idea-packager I looked for frameworks to help potential readers get the most out of my manuscript. What they want to learn, even if they didn’t realize they wanted to.

“4”  Steve Howey, 42:This isn’t a case of getting it right.  It’s a case of recognizing what it is you most want to learn.” Cancer

Normally I do differentiate, but concerning this 1-Year Experiment, I’m not so sure.

“3”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980):You’re careful not to make things about you that shouldn’t be.  Wisdom helps you separate your role from your true self.” Aries

OK, but like what?

“2”  Steve Smith, 30:To get satisfied when you’re not requires that you notice and allow yourself to be influenced by an entirely different set of factors.” Gemini

S1 E59 — Where Did All the Dillon Millennials Go? Eureka!

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

Summer July 2019

“5”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61: “Some things you think will be easy will take forever and what you thought was a big deal could snap together in an instant.” Libra

Happy 4th of July on Day 59 of My 1-Year Experiment. We enjoyed the fireworks show with neighbors and their friends.  The night lit up with an awesome spectacular which launched from the little league ball fields on the opposite side of Olympiad — so named for the Olympics cycling event — from the lake.  

Festivities were on my mind, believe it or not,  as I published “What Were Dillon and Keystone Resort Like Before the Great Recession?” At least the subtitle: “The Uncorked Mountain Wine Festival at Keystone, Colo features delicious wines, award winning jazz, and a juried fine art show in River Run.”

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Let’s be honest, I’m force fitting G&G’s Holiday Tau for a humble brag sorta. I did figure it would be easy to identify who — most frequent lifestyles, that is — lived in each zip coded town I had on my bucket list.  

It wasn’t.  

My source changed hands as a business several times.  The big deal part that snapped together in a “eureka!” moment was realizing I was the only one who could tell you how many millennial lifestyle profiles used to live in Dillon, Colorado.  

How many left during the Great Recession and who replaced them.  And, if those lifestyles left, where their lifestyle showed up later in, say Lake Tahoe, California.  Not even my original source could tell you that! 

“5”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61: “Some things you think will be easy will take forever and what you thought was a big deal could snap together in an instant.” Libra

Believe me taken together WW&C’s Holiday Tau with McQueen’s described my ups and downs.

“4”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: “A person has to be pretty cunning indeed to outsmart his or her own worst tricks and self-sabotaging behaviors.  Such is the mastery of living.” Taurus

I can’t lie, this one is more aspirational for me,  I’m hoping to surface my real needs for it to come true.

“3”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “Maybe the thing you’re trying to do with sheer willpower can be more easily accomplished with a better understanding of your real needs.”Aries

Thanks.  I’m sure this rings true for many, but not so much for me today.  

“2”  Steve Smith, 30: “The thing that ultimately drives change is your desire for the change.  Seeing someone who has it will be the magic motivator.” Gemini

This one seems like something I should remind myself from time to time, but not for a different celebration of fireworks.  

“2”  Steve Aoki, 41: “There are those who turn minor criticisms into major arguments and take helpful comments as personal slights.  It’s not so much an invitation to quarrel as a call for help.” Sagittarius

S1 E58 — Judging a Stroll from the Hotel Santa Barbara to the Lobero Theater

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

Summer June 2019

This just in.  I get me some mighty fine comments.  I received an action alert to approve, trash, or call it spam.  

Many like this show up months after the fact.  

I’d been writing a series about Santa Barbara, California on my website, Western Skies and Island Currents:  From the Desert to the Mountains to the Sea and all the Pristine Rivers, Lakes and Islands in Between. 

Welcome to this edition, Day 58 of My 1-Year Experiment, on June 3oth.

Emma the Baroness and I met some friends, who share the same Holiday Tau as Zahn, Winkler and us,  a short walking distance from the Hotel Santa Barbara, attended a benefit concert at the Lobero Theatre after wine tasting and dinner and a night out on the town.  

Here’s the comment attached to “Night TRAPS — Walk. Drink. Eat. Groove.” You be the judge.

I precisely wanted to appreciate you once more. I am not sure what I might have used in the absence of the methods documented by you regarding that area.It was before a real frustrating concern in my opinion, but discovering a specialised form you solved it made me to weep with fulfillment. I will be grateful for this work as well as pray you are aware of a great job you are doing teaching other individuals by way of a site. Most probably you’ve never met any of us.

Not if I receive more of those comments.

“2”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Do what it takes to remain flexible, strong and ready.  Success will soon be yours.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

I’m doubting it.

“2” Steve Smith, 30:You have an elaborate (though mostly subconscious) way to process information, and it’s right on the money today.” Gemini

I’ll say.

“2”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61: “There comes a point in every venture when there’s nothing more you can do or are willing to do to influence the outcome.” Libra

And keep their written comments to themselves?

“2”  Steve Aoki, 41: “As you relate to more people, you’ll figure out how to put yourself across so they learn quickly who you are.” Sagittarius

S1 E57 — More or Less in the Know

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

Summer June 2019

“2”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Many people around you are seeing less than half of the situation.  For now, disseminate information on a need-to-know basis.” Scorpio

Are you kidding me again?  Are we all pessimists or just half wits on today, June 29th, Day 57 of My 1-Year Experiment?

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Yes, there’s something to be said for time vigilance, but this doesn’t do it for me.

“2”  Steve Smith, 30: “Time is a nonrenewable resource.  Don’t let yourself get dragged into the sort of activities that can only eat away at your precious time.” Gemini

“2”  Steve Harvey, 62: “There are tasks you’ve completed a million times that never seem to get any easier.  The temptation is to outsource them or find a way around them.  Resist. These are the motions that keep you strong and able.” Capricorn

12 Hidden Secrets and Stolen Wisdom – Month Two

The first 30-days describe figuring out rules of the road, shifting decisions with implications for the whole 1-year time frame. Here are the “Top 12 TauBit of Wisdom” for the Second 30-day period.

“Evidence” highlights what I actually did on a day that influenced a rating from 1 to 5. “Experiment Methodology” highlights decisions made along the way about what’s changed.

Top 12 TauBit of Wisdom

Legitimate Holiday TauBits of Wisdom

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Time to yourself seems like an impractical indulgence, you’re happier and more loving once you’ve tended to your tranquility needs.” Scorpio

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Self-doubt is the enemy of imagination.  Trust and lean further into your creativity.  Agree with and build on the goodness there.” Scorpio

 

“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

TauBits Begged, Borrowed and Stolen from Steves

“5”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “You’re drawn to unexplored territories today, and you’ll map out the terrain for those who come along later.” Pisces

“5”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “Project yourself to the far future.  What you see there will help you create your best strategy.” Pisces

“5”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61; Stephen King, 72: “If you think too far into the situation, you’re likely to get lost in details and complications, making it impossible to take a stance.” Virgo

“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

“5”  Steve Harvey, 62: “Think of all of life as an experiment.  If this person’s not right, try that person.  Don’t take the outcome personally.” Capricorn

“5”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69: Questions such as ‘why does this matter?’ or ‘what is important about this?’ will bring you past the symptoms and right to the root issue.” Taurus

“5”  Steve Smith, 30:If wisdom were a needle in a haystack, you’d find it.  Precious insights could come from anywhere.” Gemini

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): Little thoughts come and go.  Write them down; record them somehow.” Aries

“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

Funny, reviewing them now only shows how in some cases I needed to twist and stretch the TauBits to fill my need to write about what I worked on.  

On Day 60  I rediscovered succinct descriptions for the knowledge path volumes one and two!! I can include the descriptions in the beginning of “Volume Two Manuscript“.  

And, for a couple of days leading up to it the ratings four the TauBits really sucked, I’ll point out a change in “Experiment Methodology” no longer including those I didn’t curate initially and those that didn’t score a “2” or “1” for relevance.

Evidence 

Topics of the Day

  • Analytics of shared articles on LinkedIn
  • Sharing political economic news from the day
  • Feeling shock about election interference, obstruction of justice while reading Volume One and Two of the redacted Mueller Report
  • Deeper dives into the negative aspects of social media, especially Facebook and Twitter

Following my intuition today, July 5th, on Day 60 of My 1-Year Experiment, I pulled up a pdf of “New Lenses Field Guide” and reviewed the last two topics, 

Topics illustrating My Passions and Life Over the Last Few Days

What’s been going on?  I’ve been working through the missing chapters from my 5-book volume I’ve been calling “The Knowledge Path Series” and just published “High Country Cowboys and Eagles in Whitefish” in my blog, Knowledge Banking: Wealthy Choices. Healthy Lives. What was it about?  Here’s how I described it: 

With the help of our knowledge bank, you can choose for variations in your new neighborhood by:

“What does an Idea Packager do?  That’s what I’m answering in Volume Two of the Knowledge Path Series.  The first volume answers the question, “If I can live and work anywhere in the world, then which community should I choose as the best fit for my inspiration, satisfaction and happiness?” 

The second series answers the question, “If I could work for any company or type of organization either as an employee, consultant or independent contractor which type or stage of growth brings out the best and worst in me?” Given the choice, which should I pursue and which should I avoid like the plague?”

In my original field research about “work” which I tested in workshops and advising sessions with hundreds of Executive MBA students I’ve been exploring disruptive change — as driven by a specific type of organization named “Paradoxy-Morons” and at a specific stage of growth companies feel either desperate enough to enter or innovative enough to bake it into their Organizational DNA — reinvention. 

Focus on conceptualizing a second manuscript about talent cultures, profiles, organization types and stages of growth

Recalling 5-year passage of time building a climate for innovation

Steve Jobs, mostly for his brand of disruptive innovation — creating new rules for an older industry.  His Holiday Tau reminds me of a quote, I believe came from Joel Barker originally:

Mastering new rules is like trying to cross a white-water river. If you can anticipate the whirlpools and the changes in the current, if you can anticipate the landing on the other shore, you have a much better chance of getting across that river successfully.

Recalling specific challenges a downsizing crisis presented to our team of internal consultants

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.

Topics Which are Really True About Me Over a Long Time

  • Writing devises like the use of Holiday Tau and asking “What Would Leo da V Do?”
  • Sampling writing styles of several authors for sentence construction growth

From the Kindle version of “The Art of Memoir” by Mary Karr. 

What appeals to me is her description of life-story writers like me:

“… a fiction writer starts with meaning and then manufactures events to represent it; a memoirist starts with events, then derives meaning from them.”

(A) memoir uses novelistic devices like cobbling together dialogue you failed to record at the time.

A fierce urge to try re-experiencing your own mind and body and throbbing heart alive inside the most vivid stories from your past is step one.

Methodology Changes 

6/6/19 

Researcher’s Note:  While curating raw TauBits of Wisdom for inclusion it dawned on me I needed to calculate the total number of possibilities for final results and comparisons. Total potential horoscopes / potential between 4536 and 4548.

6/16/19

Researchers Note: The previous day returned “5” rankings for each of the Steves curated TauBits of Wisdom.  Out of today’s three of the 6 identified scored a “3” and just as many rated a “2”.  Is there any value in including “2’s” and “1’s”?

6/22/19 

Researcher’s Note:  By this time, Day 53 of my 1-year experiment, I began saving a little time in my process of reading Holiday Mathis sayings in the print edition of The Los Angeles Times, by typing into a previously copied saying, like yesterday’s Steve Zahn.  It meant I’d have to search through a half a dozen statements.  I found by bolding the Tau, it made it easier to locate one to copy and then type over.  It wouldn’t be the last time I sought efficiencies.

Researcher’s Note:  At the end of the 30 days (Days 58 and 59) the rankings topped  under “2” again, so I decided going forward I won’t record any score under “3”.

“3”  Steve Zahn, 51: “You’re so familiar with your own environment that you don’t see it for what it is.  Get out of it for a while and you’ll appreciate all you’ve built.” Scorpio

I gotta say it’s frickin’ summer. I’m in a lighter mood, and although I selected 5 average Holiday Taus I’m not that married to any one of them.  Which Emma the Baroness would quickly point out is big of me. I know, it’s a Dad Joke. Scroll down and you’ll see why.

Oh and welcome to Day 56 of My 1-Year Experiment on June 28th.

S1 E55 – All Roads Lead to the Future

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

Summer June 2019

“5”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “Project yourself to the far future.  What you see there will help you create your best strategy.” Pisces

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Let’s see.  What’s going on?  I published a new post in “Best West Road Trips” called “Difficult Roads Often Lead to Beautiful Destinations. Time for a Getaway?

Embrace your solitude and immerse yourself in a lush green wilderness. Keep a wary eye open for bears on a food run. Soak up ice cold exhilaration in moss-covered swimming holes.

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “Finding a solution to the problem depends on maintaining a certain frame of mind.  Do the self-care that allows you to relax.” Aries

Haha. So the message isn’t in the medium, but in the number.  Just two today, June 27th, on Day 55 of My 1-Year Experiment, but is it worth it?

“3”  Steve Aoki, 41: Quantity lowers value.  If there’s too much of a thing, then it’s not worth as much.  The best things in life are always rare.” Sagittarius

Oops.  Almost overlooked the Jobs Holiday Tau.  I recently published “Knowing About New Possibilities Gives You More Choices. Check These Out” on my website, Know Laboratories: Thriving in an Age of Accelerating Uncertainty. 

The main point was:

When compared with previous industrial revolutions, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is evolving at an exponential rather than a linear pace.

What’s been going on?  I just finished copying over my highlights from the Kindle version of “The Art of Memoir” by Mary Karr. 

Welcome to Day 54 of My 1-Year Experiment for June 23rd. Here’s what appeals to me, her description of life-story writers like me:
