If you are here and in the right place, there's an excellent chance you're a leader of a business with large-scale ambitions or an individual with some extraordinary gifts of consciousness-expanding potential.
In fact, you may have heard over and over again that your goals are unrealistic, idealistic, or excessively ambitious. Someone may have even called you crazy.
And yet, you know deep down that your ambitions are exactly the right kind kind of crazy…that potent cocktail of curiosity, creativity, and drive that has animated most of humankind's most remarkable work.
And while you are likely self-aware enough to know that you may not have Einstein’s IQ, you also know that you don’t have to invent an entirely new model of physical reality to do remarkable and impactful things.
A strong, adaptable mind? Yes. A willingness to march to the beat of your own drum? Check. A high tolerance for ambiguity? Those too.
You’re on this journey because you want to live in the best possible future for yourself and the people you love. And you know the best shot you have at that future is to help create it.
It's easy to underestimate the centrality of language and the stories crafted around it to the success of your company. I cannot take credit for this idea. The Silicon Valley growth mind James Currier said it first "language defines product."
One of Currier's prime examples is the language a team uses to describes a dating app.
Carrier's focuses is the impact of language on product decisions, so he might highlight the differences in the interfaces and new user on-boarding experiences between:
With great respect for Currier's mind and perspective, I'd go even further:
The language and stories you tell define your whole company, all of its products, the people you hire, and the type of customers or end-users you go after, the reasons they choose you (or not).
To use the same example: how many differences do you expect exist between the leadership styles, internal cultures, hiring processes, ideal candidates, ideal customers, effective marketing messages, and customer acquisition strategies between "The secret way to get down with people nearby" and "Date. Meet Friends, and Network, " and "Match and meet curious & kinky couples and singles."
I don't know about you, but I'd expect worlds of difference, much of it stemming from the type of people those words attract or (in the less neutral cases) turn away.
For me, I'm here to to co-create a new kind of operating system at the intersection of evolved consciousness and technology with the founders, builders, dreamers, healers, teachers, artists, and human beings working to help humanity thrive...
...An operating system designed to support human health and well-being of every kind...one that respects the definition of "well-being" and the belief systems that support it may be unique to every individual person and collective.
...A system that optimizes for broad distribution of happiness instead of aggregation.
....that integrates the best of every approach to human thriving with the help of an AI designed from the ground up around the logic of "win-win-win" cooperation instead of "win-lose" competition.
I've been contemplating and sketching out this system for a couple of years, and every time an idea for a novel technology, product, service, philosophical underpinning, governance model, etc that this new kind of operating system might need enters my head, I find that someone or some great team is already working on that exact thing or some component of it...
...and usually not describing the value in anything close to sufficiently clear, persuasive, or epic terms.
I would hope that the benefits of such a thing start off widely available and become more and more universally accessible over time, because it
My role...for now at least...seems to be that of exponential storyteller, systematic alchemist, and strategic integrator.
So if you're one of them (or even think you might be) I'd love to help you to fix that.
I got lots and lots of ways, all of them clean, ethical, transparent, and above board.
I would tell you all about them here, but there's a coda in storytelling to show not tell. Plus, some mystery is good to leave open to your curiosity, yes?
I stand by the value I deliver, so I ask nothing upfront, only a healthy, fair and balanced percentage of the upside my contribution delivers to you.
How does all this so-called magic work?
