I started this blog with the aim of clarifying my thinking, acting on my desire to publish, contributing to significant conversations, and building up a body of work for future use.
More recently, I’ve been challenged to create value for people, my audience, my readers. If you’re reading this, that’s you.

What about you? What is your call?
What will you focus on, now? Today – in this moment? And where might that take you – a day from now, a year from now, a lifetime from now?
And how will you get there? Will you need to learn about, develop, and apply the principles of holistic high performance? These include – but are certainly not limited to – cultural intelligence, deep work, and deliberate practice.
I put it like this – I am called to:
