It's got to be about Why, not How: How Great Leaders Inspire Action, Simon Sinek

"Why FIRST:  Communication and the Golden Circle:  Why, How, What?  Inspire where others do not.  Profit is JUST a result NOT a reason for existing."


Simon's examples include Apple (why so innovative?), Martin Luther King (lead major change, Civil Rights movement), and the Wright brothers (controlled powered manned flight that others did not achieve, tho' were working on.)

Apple:  NOT, What we do, great computers.  Want to buy one?

RATHER:  Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo, we believe thinking differently. The way we challenge the status quo is making products that are beautifully designed, simple to use & user friendly.  We happen to make computers.  Want to buy one?


Counterpoint Tivo, which (until a recent court victory that tripled its stock price) appeared to be struggling.

Turn Your Wounds Into Wisdom

Turn Your Wounds Into Wisdom | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it

I selected this beautiful, piece  written by Ann Tran and 2omorrowknight

because it is indeed very wise and inspirational.


**This is the kind of article that I love to post because it may change someone's life and move them in a postive direction.

We all have scars. Some are small and others more prominent. Some fade and are forgotten while others persist as vivid reminders of past trauma.


**Everyone makes a choice how to grow and move forward in the wake of their wounds.


Here are a few highlights:


**The moment we become aware of our imperfections from society's viewpoint, those imperfections become scars.


**Ironically, we can choose to make these imperfections our perfection. We decide how we deal with the negative words from society and those around us -- whether to allow them to destroy or to empower us.


**By sharing our stories, we just might have the opportunity to help heal the scar of one person out there -- maybe even more. If we help one person heal from a scar, then what other amazing things are we capable of accomplishing?

Very inspiring!!


Thoughts from an 8pm WarriorLeadership, marketing, and social media for limitless warriors


If you really want to change the world, you must do it publicly.


**Declare it.


Your closest friends may laugh. Your family will think you’re crazy. Your team members might roll their eyes.


Trust me.


Many will call you crazy, but along the way you’ll attract fellow Warriors who are waiting to follow someone with a vision.


People are waiting for you.


Let them know.


I want to change the world and after Steve Jobs died, this video brought tears to my eyes. He narrated it.
