The one thing that is shamefully rare in today’s competitive business world

Sara Bareilles’ new song Brave crossed Mid Life Celebration’s path on exactly the right day. Talk about timing.

Had an intense, and extraordinarily useful conversation from an unlikely source.

The topic yesterday was being brave.

My argument was that I was not being brave. But I argued I was, with humility as the first filter.

It dawned on me that humility is rare.

Shamefully rare.

And practicing the art of humility can stun people because they can’t even tell what it is.



This was an exciting discovery to realize how far I’ve come. Hope you are finding surprising and useful ways to gauge your progress.
