Casual Spanish Conversations

At Monterrey waiting for my laptop repair when I saw this sign at a coffee stand. I took the photo because it’s only the 2nd one I’ve seen in my time here. As I took the photo, a woman and her friend approached me and asked me to explain it. It’s one thing to have a conversation about the weather in Spanish and quite another to try to explain crypto currency and digital wallets. I explained that I don’t currently have any and she jokingly replied that she’d let me know how it works out for her. 🤣

Aspiration and Inspiration

As aspirational people (those who want to do), we often look to the inspirational people (those who have done it) for the keys to success.

We would do well to learn from those who are in media res (those who are in the middle of doing).  

Their stories provide the context of their decision making w/o the fog of memory, sanitization nor embellishment .

It’s why we love the the hero’s journey. We can follow the story as it unfolds. It’s exciting and we don’t know how it’s going to end.

Though it’s tempting to dismiss people who “haven’t made it yet”, I encourage you to reconsider and take advantage of what their journeys have to offer.

Featured on Remote Working Hub

In the same way that a new business needs to have a strong handle on cash flow, a new remote worker has to develop a mastery over workflow. This includes time/attention management, effective communication and having an accountability/feedback structure.

I’m excited to be featured on Remote Working Hub!!! It was a great opportunity to talk about the importance of communication and accountability processes in distributed teams. #remotework #distributedteams #communication #accountability
