Posted by Bruce Peters

A couple of days ago I commented on a post by Zat Rana where he opined that you could tell a lot about a person by what they read. My response below ends with “what does, or how does, what I read tell you about me?

Certain and Solitary

Posted by Bruce Peters

Last week I wrote a post Plan B. Synchronicity prevailed and Plan B, by Anne Lamott, landed on my stack of books to read. I moved it to near the top a couple of weeks back after reading her Stitches. I’ve long been a fan of her writing. So moving Plan B to the top of the pile was an easy call.

Plan B: Covid-19

Posted by Bruce Peters

 

Facing me in my office is the above image of Bob Dylan.

There is another image of Dylan, my personal favorite, “Forever Young” which has been a personal sort of mantra.  A post on that theme I leave for another time.

“Times They Are A-Changin” occupies front and center right now. When it appeared that the pandemic was inevitably headed our way, I like most began to think about What is our Plan B? The question that started in the background, now begs front and center, to be answered.

Jump-Starting Rochester: The New Narrative Part 3

Posted by Bruce Peters

In New Narrative Parts 1 and 2, I wrote about  the opportunity for our Rochester NY Community  to actualize our potential as the #1 innovation technology hub, as earned and recognized in Jump-Starting America.

The challenge to our community and to each of us who care is, how to actualize this potential. In my last post, I labeled Gruber and Johnson’s designation as a gift to us. What will we do with this gift?

Jump-Starting Rochester: The New Narrative Part 1

Posted by Bruce Peters

We're #1

Before the year end, prior to taking a pause from work, I wrote the article that follows to our fledgling "Jump-Starting Rochester" Community.
 
I post it now as it sets the context of our communities designation as the potential # 1 location to become a technology/innovation hub. 
 
The New Narrative Parts I and II are about creating, that is, co-creating the story we would love our children and grandchildren to tell about this time in our community and the role each of us will play in that story. Hope that you will read and consider. Part I today. Part II to follow.

Re: "No Advice" Post

Posted by Bruce Peters

This past week I exchanged email with my colleague and friend, Tom McCallum on the general topic of advice giving. The working theme of the post, the catalyst for the exchange, was about giving "less advice".

 
Totally unknown to Tom, several days prior to this post he had written a couple of other posts describing the advice he had provided to clients. This raised my shackles about the efficacy of advice in any form. I had started to bring up the issue a couple of times with Tom but failed to do so. Voila! Synchronicity, coincidence or serendipity took over and Tom wrote "Give less advice."

To my way of thinking...

Posted by Bruce Peters

Periodically, I like most of you, get introduced to other professionals through or by trusted colleagues.This past week Jimmy P. connected as a consequence of just such an introduction. After a brief email exchange it became clear that Jimmy was a true professional and superbly intentional about where the direction of the connection might go.
