How could make your life and work simpler yet more profound?

This Sunday's sparkenation.

I ordered a coffee for my client and one for myself. The waiter smiled and gave me a buzzer. “When this goes off” he said “Come back and get your coffees from the window ledge.” Then his eyes moved to the next customer. As with me he didn't say anything, just looked at the person.

When I went back to get the coffees I said “Thank You.” Not a word from the waiter.

I won’t be going back here. The staff may have made their lives simpler yet the profoundness that happens with real human connection has disappeared.

Leonardo da Vinci said: ‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication’.

How could make your life and work simpler yet more profound?

Hint: The answer lies in your humanness.

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”
Albert Einstein

Simple is often mistaken for easy. 

Technology can make our lives simpler. Without humanness technology actually makes our lives more complicated.

How could make your life and work simpler yet more profound?

Be the difference you want to see in the world.

PS
Today at midnight wherever you live my very special offers to you to become an inaugural member of Maverick Thinkers Studio expire.

I will never be repeating these offers. After all inaugural is exactly that!

Find out more and join here.

You’ll be joining some wonderful people. There’s a senior executive in a major railway company, a philanthropist and major player in the travel industry, there’s a young father bored with corporate life and planning his escape to entrepreneurial life. There’s some intrapreneurs staying in their roles, committed to making a difference.

There’s a Chairperson of a major charity, the head of a boutique creative agency, and the CEO of a aged care facility.

There’s a leader in local government, a concierge guru, and a partner in an accountancy firm. There’s a number of members whose businesses are just themselves serving a niche and doing stuff that really matters.

All members have three things in common. 

1) They’re sick of the status quo when same no longer serves the world.

2) They’re the 1 in 100 who believe that all change is personal first, relationship change second, and organisational change a distant third. These folk are definitely not the 99 who when they talk about change, what they actually mean is everyone else changing and not them.

3) They’re deeply committed to being change champions.

Should these 3 resonate with you, you’ll love being a member of Maverick Thinkers Studio. Find out more and join here.

I appreciate too that you may be the 1 in 100 however for whatever reason you’ve decided not to join. I deeply respect your decision.
