Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 06/07/2021

 

Did you ever become involved in something inappropriate through perfectly innocent behavior? I’m seeking kindred spirits here.

I was departing my favorite hobby shop which is precariously positioned on the approach to what they call a “rotary” up here (traffic circle elsewhere). I had to make a left across oncoming traffic and the far lane had a long line of cars travelling slowly. When the near lane was clear, I edged across and inserted myself between two cars in the serpentine line. The driver in front of whom I merged didn’t seem upset, or even attentive, but I waved my thanks. It’s important to note at this point I’m driving my Rolls with the top down and I’m wearing a tee-shirt and baseball cap.

As we crawled around the rotary at 18 miles per hour, I descended the hill and, on the ascent of the next hill, I could see the driver, about ten car-lengths ahead, who was going so slowly and holding us up. He had on his emergency flashers, indicating a problem, and I realized there was no shoulder on which to pull off the road. The next car had on its flashers as well, I guessed to warn those following. I looked in my rear-view mirror to make sure the driver behind me wasn’t too close, and I noticed his flashers were also on.

I had pulled smack into the middle of a funeral procession.

I said a brief, silent prayer for the deceased, put my flashers on, and rode with them until my exit five streets ahead.

Post Mid-Life Crisis: Who do you want to be when you grow up?

A great many people have kidded me, saying, “Alan, I want to be you when I grow up!” This isn’t about “being me,” it’s about being the real you. And I can help because I’ve been through it and assisted hundreds of others through the “crisis.” It’s not easy, but it’s also the worst possible issue to procrastinate about. If you wait long enough, other people will have made the decisions for you.

Join me for an hour’s Zoom session (which will be recorded and forwarded to everyone who registers) during which—and after which, I’ll hang around—I’ll take questions. Among my topics:

  • How to determine your personal vision.
  • What is “fulfillment” as opposed to “victory”?
  • Five fundamental areas of personal impact to consider.
  • How to forge a path for yourself with confidence and without fear.
  • How do you find and engage with kindred spirits?
  • How to STOP evaluating yourself and simply accept yourself.

This is an increasingly important topic amongst people who are successful and those who are “stalking” success. There’s so much noise out there that it’s often hard to simply listen to yourself.

July 29, 10:30-11:30 US Eastern time via Zoom:
