Welcome to the companion monthly magazine to our upcoming book “From the Titanic to the Ark – Handbook to Survive and Thrive in Epic Times” to help you plan, protect and prosper!

We share important aspects in preparing ourselves for transformation. The hardest work will be emotional as we welcome a complete shift in paradigm (our view of the world and our relationship to it) – in other words there will be no familiar frame of reference since change at this order of magnitude is not history repeating itself. What's more, nobody has been here before....which is to say we are all here on the leading edge - no followers looking for leaders, no leaders gathering followers - we do the work together shoulder to shoulder…and we’re making it up as we go!

For our well being, it is crucial that we do so consciously! Should we be asleep at the wheel, we couldn't help but waste valuable energy resisting 'ever changing form' by projecting our perspective backward in guilt or forward in anxiety – this is giving away our power. Rather, by becoming self aware and authentically present, we arouse the genius within while summoning creative intelligence to work through us – standing ever ready to anticipate and harmonize with real time events. And of course, let us look to one another side-by-each for support and encouragement. The obvious starting point is right here, right now. Surf’s up – let’s catch a wave!

Doing What We Love

Key Distinctions/Insights: Choosing how we wish to contribute can best be done by “doing what we love”. Nothing like passion to leave a lasting energetic imprint long after the deed is done! The best rule of thumb is to work within ones genius. 

I will showcase important tools that helped me to discover my unique genius however for this moment, to get a quick handle on what your genius is, here’s a simple guide. Ask yourself what it is that you do whereby you take away more energy than you put in – a clue is what are you doing when you completely lose track of time! Then do that.


  1. I can't agree more! Can you imagine taking a survey of all people who work 40 hours per week and seeing what percentage of the world would say they love what they do? I would venture to say that less than 25% (and that is a generous figure) would agree that they LOVE what they do. The reality of the situation is that at least 75% of the working population spends hours a week doing things they either hate or are indifferent about - how sad!

    Children in school are forced to take extensive coursework in all fundamental subjects, however, no coursework and very little resources are offered to help children and young adults discover what it is they enjoy doing. How ridiculous does that sound? A person will spend 40 years (or more) of his/her life working and absolutely no time or thought is put into the exploration of the opportunities which best match a person's talents and passions.

    I love the following quote...

    "What a shame it is to spend your whole life fishing only to realize that it was not fish you were looking for."

  2. Aimee - beautifully said - thank you! I look forward to outlining some of the tools available to help people determine where they shine. And I look forward to featuring an article from you with your teaching expertise on 'Life Long Teaching' to complement the article in December on 'Life Long Learning' since we all have wisdom to share and wisdom to learn. xoxo
