Connecting Your Future to Your Present

For those of you who haven't read The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell yet, you should (at least the first half). It's a really useful summary of why our communities behave the way they do. Gladwell defines types of people, and per his book, I am a connector. Right now I'm connecting you and me, and if you stay in touch I will connect you to some unusual and helpful perspectives on life and how to get what you want, be it business or personal. I will connect a lot of data points and help you connect your future to your present.

I'm also a story teller. I will make analogies I hope will inspire a grin as well as a new perspective. One of my favorite movie lines comes from Kung Fu Panda: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, which is why it’s called the present.” Connecting your future to your present is an exciting process, made more possible than ever before because of the digital dimension. This bridge connecting present and future is strategy. Hopefully my sharing a perspective from this perch in our digital world will be my third thing I try to be: helpful.
