About One 1095 Days Long Transformative Journey

Hiya SCG,

I trust you will spare few minutes to stop yourself  in Christmas presents hunt to read this shipment. It will not be wrap-up of 2010 on #IS, nor list of New Year’s resolutions, nor a Christmas e-card. It will be a story, true story about 3 years long journey of surrendering to the pull of the heart’s calling. Step in!

Question Of the Week #50

Hello SCG,

50th question was inspired by a post on the Facebook page of my friend Derek Sivers, where he posted this link, where online authorities (including SCG-ers: J.D. Meier, Mars Dorian or Seth Godin) were asked this question:

“What’s the most “unrealistic” thing you have accomplished & what have you learned from the process? “

Mistakes Are Your Chance to Shine Out Others!

Hi SCG,

I would like to share with you a story, which will support thought-provoking title above: “Mistakes are your chance to shine out others.”Huh? How come?, you might be asking. Here is a “mistake story”: One week ago, Michael Hyatt kept his word and package with book by Super Cool Gang-er Anne Jackson reached snowy Poprad. Reason, why all of that happened was because I have left comment on Mike’s blog post with a reason why I would like to read Anne’s book. Mike has picked 100 people with the most convincing why. (So after all, Simon Sinek is right, starting with why pays off) So, happy as I was to find package with the Anne’s newest book Permission to speak freely in my room. I was even more astonished today morning.

(Y)our Mediocre Work Affects Whole Country or Why Slovakia Needs to Wake Up Before It Is Too Late

Hiya SCG,

you might have noticed pretty modest amount of my shipping and insights this week. It was caused by very intensive 3 days, which moved me and transformed me again. I will not go into details much, as I am still digesting lessons learned from it and how it has affected me. But briefly, I have turned down assignment and have given up couple of thousands Euro of income for next month, because I could not risk my name and credibility to deliver work, which is not top-notch. (requirement was to do it “just like that”…) [Read more…]

Second Linchpins Meet Up (Only One) in Slovakia

Hello SCG,

yesterday (7 Dec) was the second global Linchpins are everywhere meet up, called up by the Seth Godin. I have (again) raised a meet up flag in Slovakia, ignoring the fact I am the only one in whole country marching on. You might remember video from 1st Linchpin meet up in Slovakia (from June 2010), where I have been very excited from the fact that 7 people showed up on a meet up and I was spreading message: “It always starts with one!” Yesterday, I have decided to spread ideas about what does it mean to be a Linchpin again and my audience consisted of the most indispensable Linchpins, I know. Who were are they?

Do You Have Your Gratitude List?

1st Gratitude List from 24/06/2008

Hi SCG,

I would like to share with you another eye- opening story which has happened 2 years and 5 months ago.  It was June 2008, shortly after my birthday & I was kicking off my consulting career, when I was full time on a project. I was sitting in my hotel room after a day at client’s site.  I did not have a clue that upcoming brief chat with my online friend from Iceland  will drastically transform  my outlook on life. Our instant messaging chat went on something like this: [Read more…]

Happy Birthday Robert F. Kennedy

Hi SCG,

this shipment is totally spontaneous and unplanned. I have just finished watching a documentary A Ripple Of Hope, which I have bumped into yesterday by total coincidence. Movie has finished only moments ago and my eyes are still wet, while typing this…More over I have found out, that today is RFK‘s birthday…So, I could not ask for more signs from universe, that it is right time to ship.

I would like to dedicate this emergency shipment to all courageous people with big loving hearts.  Super Cool Gang-ers please watch this movie! [Read more…]

On Expectations

Hiya SCG,

today’s shipment was inspired by Facebook status of my friend Prashant, which said this: The Better You Do, More They Expect”and this got me thinking. How is it with expectations? Is Prashant’s status update true or not? How should we deal with all those opportunities laying in front of us, in an interactive and connected age we live in? What shall we expect? Are expectations put on us encouraging or it is a burden? [Read more…]
