If you use Powerpoint, a few principles and tips to keep in mind when using type on a slide
There's one person responsible. The time allocated matches what's needed, not what the calendar app says. Everyone invited is someone who needs to be there, and no key party is missing. There's a default step forward if someone doesn't come. There's no better way to move this forward than to have this meeting. The desired outcome is clearly stated. The organizer has described what would have to happen for the meeting to be cancelled or to stop midway. "This is what I want to happen," and if there's a "yes," we're done. All relevant information, including analysis, is available to all in plenty of time to be reviewed in advance.

This is a checklist to come back to regularly.
We merely have to write, we merely have to create, have to be generous enough to show up with the best work we have right now. Once the immigular, the resistance realises that you are going to ship it anyway, it will get its act together and your work will get better. Don't say you don't have enough good ideas, say you don't have enough bad ideas.
Isn’t this what we truly want? To be seen, to be heard, to be understood…
The act of sacrifice, of foregoing one thing in our journey toward another one, one more generous, virtuous and useful, is actually a little piece of the satisfaction of the goal itself. If it comes easy, it's not the same.
"I don't have much, but I have more than you do..." The second episode of my podcast is out today, and it's the result of perhaps fifty blog posts I wrote but didn't post, because the topic is too important...
Today, value isn't created by filling a slot, it's created by connection. By the combinations created by people. By the magic that comes from diversity of opinion, background and motivation. Connection leads to ideas, to solutions, to breakthroughs.
And this can be our goal. Every day, with every action, to make something more civilized. To find more dignity and possibility and opportunity for those around us, those we know and don’t know.
