Toolkit (v0.1)

My last post got me thinking again about the toolkit for making change and building a good future. What follows started out as the tail of that post but grew too long, so I’ve cut it off and put it here as a springboard to bounce off (or a wave to ride) later. So here are some tools… There are…

DriverlessSpecodile (The DC Podcast Spec)

This is an attempt at speccing the DC podcast using questions from Seth Godin’s This is Marketing. 1. Audience: Who do I seek to serve? What is the world view of the audience you’re seeking to reach?  The Driverless Crocodile podcast is for people who believe that the world can be better – in big ways or small – and…

The Commitments (1):

Some things worth committing to: to service and impact for human-flourishing (vision, clarity and focus, outcomes more than processes, sustainability); to getting better every day (being a pro, showing up, learning, a path to making things better rather than shortcuts and hacks); to generosity and investing in others (kindness, sharing what you know, teaching and training); to a strong and…

Learn… Deliberately, consistently, and eclectically. New ways to see other people, yourself, the world. Better ways to feed our families, serve our people, to live well…

Seth Godin: Homeschooled (2)

There are choices that parents make all the time. They range from enlisting your kid in a team sport that’s based on compliance, instead of encouraging them to engage in an individual sport that’s based on establishing standards and then surpassing them. Or perhaps it’s about setting a standard about what gets talked about at the dinner table. What tools…

Seth Godin: Homeschooled (1)

I think public school is essential. It’s important that we have a common denominator and that we don’t leave people behind simply because we can afford a private school or a homeschool situation, and others can’t. On the other hand, at the same time, sooner or later, all kids are homeschooled. They’re homeschooled for five years before they even show…
