Jim Rohn famously said that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.

To boost my average I focus on seeking wisdom from audio books and podcasts. And on that basis @jason is one of my 5.
From my religious consumption of Jason's This Week In StartUps [TWIST] podcast to attending his annual Launch Festival and now networking with other founders on the Twist social network; @jasoncalacanis provides the founder insights, inspiration and reinforcement of my belief that hard work matters.
Last night I had the pleasure to watch his fireside chat with @altucher and have him sign his new @angel book @squarespace HQ. .

To my mother’s disgruntlement, my school report cards always seemed to include the terms, 'easily distracted' and 'must learn to pay attention’. Back then I dismissed my teachers and mother's concern as irrelevant. Thankfully time taught me to manage distractions and focus my attention. It's an essential, but a daily struggle, to put aside distractions and focus on your goal, whatever that may be. - As Winston Chrchill once said 'You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks." Woof 🐶 ..

It's easy to end up myopically focused on the wellbeing of ones own life and work at the expense of the bigger picture. And there is no bigger issue today than the wellbeing of the planet. Two nights ago I attended the premiere of 'In This Climate', a powerful, compelling and thought provoking documentary featuring many eminent thinkers and celebrated creative minds of our time (and Cher) sharing their personal insights about the environmental health of our world today, and more importantly, discussing how our civilization can combat climate change. Yes and we even had Danny Glover on the panel. @liberatum

I just attended the 30th Anniversary screening @neuehouse of Full Metal Jacket - a Kubrick classic. A privilege in itself. Even more was the humbling experience of hearing and meeting lead actor Matthew Modine and some Purple Heart Vietnam vets. Discussing the experience of working with a Kubrick, Modine quoted Stella Adler saying "nature bends us". We think we have free will yet maybe we need to embrace the fact that as we move through life nature makes us who we need to be.

I've known @morgainegaye or @drgayeuk for 10 years. We worked together on her raw chocolate start up back in 2009. 'Eat Beautiful' was ahead of its time and when I met her today it reminded me of the criticality of timing in any business. Too soon is as bad as being on the wrong side of history. So in our battle with time, Time Bandits or Time Lords, we fight to win. #drwho #tardis .

Jeff Koons certainly creates a dialogue with his audience through his art's sensuality, provocation and ability to flip perspectives. Love him or hate him there's no middle ground with Koons as he confronts perceptions with his grandiose creations. There's a lesson here for any creator. Take sides, avoid the middle path, embrace risk and follow your vision.

Take time to contemplate the present. 'We are minute, miniature miracles given mere moments to meander this magical place. Forget not you are free to find the fantastic in the fleeting, terrific teeny things in all the temporary. Life is lovely because it cannot last, loss is nothing but the loosening of all the perfectly pristine pieces of the pure and preposterous places we will wander filled with wonder and wild wanderlust into. Always appreciate all the amazing and awe inducing, beg for more breath to borrow, simply so someone or somewhere or something can slide silently in and sneakily steal them swiftly and slyly away.' #tylerknottgregson .

Seeking a little breakthrough, changing perspective or flipping an assumption...easy to
ignore or leave until tomorrow. But tomorrow's quickly become weeks that soon become months and there we find ourselves where we started. Progress is not easy. We must fight for change. Into the unknown - it's the only way forward. Agree? Deny? .

Learning is a life long necessity. Last week I attended a workshop facilitation masterclass. As I absorbed, uncovered and discovered new insights and knowledge I confronted a zone of discomfort. You know that feeling when your inner voice screams No and you just have to say Yes! And sweat. 😬

Architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron and artist/activist Ai Weiwei explore the meaning of public space in our surveillance-laden world, referencing the story of Hansel and Gretel in which the children lose their way and feel a sense of menace in a space they know and trust. I feel the menace. .
