Far too often, we rush into things without stopping to ask; what is my purpose? What is my intention? Even worse, often we think we know the answer before we start. An oft-repeated dictum from an executive is, “Don’t bring me a problem unless you are also bringing me the answer.” What if the problem would be better understood, accepted, answered and celebrated if it was solved together? What if we acknowledged that lone rangers often create danger? Most every morning over the past thirty years, when I awake in the morning, before I rise I set my intention for the coming day. This is what I hope for today. Declare your honest intention for every collaboration. Think about how you think. How you think creates how you perceive. How you perceive creates your judgments. Your judgments create your actions. Your actions create your life. Your life creates how you think. Even before I set my intention, I must open my mind and heart. We feature the Can.
