The mid-term elections in the US, usually a snooze-fest, seem radioactive this year. I have to admit they got my attention.

What’s happening in this moment might help you consider the way you create. Some of this may seem controversial.

For one thing, I believe this is a particularly good time to declare your independence, of thought and action.

Soon enough it’s going to make you more sought after.

That in itself may sound crazy; especially in a time when everyone is trying to figure out how to say something real without offending anyone at all, but sometimes “crazy” is what it takes…

      Steve, you have outdone yourself with this one. It’s clear, in context, and provides hope for the future for those who get the points you have made so well.

      You are a pilot in more than one sense for those who choose to hop aboard with your message and arrive at their destinations safely and without turbulence.

        Thank you for the flying reference!

      A thing of beauty Steve. Keeping hold of our values in a world that seems so willing to discard the truth is the only way to resist what’s happening. The path to totalitarianism is well, and oft trodden. We’re doing it again. Keep the faith. Steve, Steve, he’s our man! If he can’t do it, no-one can!! Walk tall and carry a big stick.

        And you, a sharp scalpel.

      Excellent! Just the message I needed to hear this morning. That is exactly how I plan to run my business, and I’m glad I’m not alone!

        We all need reminders now and then that we have allies on this sometimes stony path.

      Love your reminder to choose love over fear to break the 80-year cycle fear had brought humanity. We can only become who we were born to become (life and career) when our conscious daily priority is love. It’s not the easy way but failure is not an option; it’s what it’s all about, Alfie.

        Yes, even more so when it’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
