SCOTOMAVILLE 02.08 Strategy for Emory

Welcome to the Pacific Northwest where it has become one heck of a hot day because the wind has shut off. And, welcome back to Scotomaville.

Angelina tells me that it takes just as much energy to think positively - abundance-minded - as it does to think scarcity. Have you ever noticed that people can have different points of view about the same exact thing? Gary Larson did an excellent job of pointing that out.

I'm sure you know this guy, and if you are that guy... thanks for watching this channel.

In this episode, we're going to talk about strategy. We're going to continue the last episode's talk about strategy, and in this one, we're going to extend it a bit more. I think you'll find it very, very interesting.

 
 





AWARENESS

We are pattern recognizing beings. We learn by building on memories which form patterns. These eventually become habits. Some are good. Some are not. Some habits come from numerous and long-standing patterns. Understanding how we are 'gamed' and misl...

It's super easy to wrongly apply the geometric axiom that; "the shortest distance between two points is a straight line." It's no wonder then that we trigger when life happens between our plans. We expect to make certain progress in a reasonable time...

Today is May 16th, 2020. 50 years ago, I clearly remember looking at the Porsche 911 that I had put together from a plastic kit on my shelf, and watching model airplanes slowly spin on their monofilament while imagining this day. It seems that life i...

People are hording toilet paper, hand wipes, frozen and canned food. It's as if they fear the end of the world. Abundance and scarcity are concepts. You can't pick them up. You have to imagine those concepts in your mind. The problem is... our emotio...

We're surrounded with abundance, yet few people speak about it. That's because it's NOT the normal circumstance for our history. Famine, plague, war, disaster... these were our normal, so our biology betrays us in an age of abundant food, health, pea...

Most of us are unaware of how often stories mislead us. In this episode of Leaving Scotomaville, Daniel demonstrates how storytelling is a super-power. Using Hieroglyphics and a likely tale of the power of leadership, you'll experience how easy it is...

When you look down, do you see a belly or your shoes? Do you see a gut or laces? Did you know that we are only 10% human and 90% microbe? There's a coup underway. It's 100 trillion microbes against your intention. By feeding our gut, rather than our ...

Learning to share the emotions within us is nearly impossible without a decent emotional vocabulary. Most guys just stuff it all. Too tough. You can learn new words, experience more adventure (and defeat) with a broader emotional vocabulary. It's one...

Living in a 19' Airstream during a global pandemic will focus your attention on the tiny stuff. A simple focus on keeping clean easily turns into fixation. The attention required in every direction becomes emotional. The 'fix' list causes stress. The...

Combining a simple illusion with a questionable story you'll experience yourself what it means to be 100% wrong half the time. You see, when a simple story meets our 20 watt brain we overlook truth in favor of the emotions connected to the story. We ...

We are regularly bamboozled, hoodwinked, mislead and biased from either side of an issue. Most people know nothing about blind-spots. We literally can not see some of what is right in front of our face. That vulnerability is leveraged by magicians an...

Why do I get so emotional? What can I do with false beliefs? These are reasonable questions. In this episode of Leaving Scotomaville, Daniel shares a mental tool that has helped a great deal. Learning to peel back layers of your beliefs to root out t...

Dean is a military veteran and business leader with a heart to reach, teach and heal. He has served our country and his community with honor and passion. His book; "Flying Free" is a great read for those working through challenges and hardships. It i...

In music, a 'hook' is an intentionally addictive set of lyrics and beat. It sticks in our mind and plays over and over and over... It can be maddening. It's a fabulous thing to be able to get noise out of your head and be inside a place that is quiet...

Most of us are known for talents and skills that we have honed over decades. Many of our strengths are direct outcomes of childhood wounds. We're experts at our top coping mechanisms, with tens of thousands of hours practice. Our NORMAL offends other...

I really want for you to become more than just self-aware - you know seeing what it is you do. I want you to become understanding - knowing why you do what you do WYDWYD. Better than that, having the discipline to chart a path into new horizons to cr...

What you can expect about expectations is that they are strongly linked to your strengths - which are your coping mechanisms from your childhood wounds. Therefore they are absolutely strong indicators of patterns and habits that are ripe for adjustme...

Learning HOW to learn will accelerate skill and life mastery. This episode demonstrates the process of becoming self-aware with examples from wind-foiling in the Columbia Gorge. Becoming consciously incompetent requires courage to accept failure in o...

We can learn about our character and convictions by thinking back on our reactions to life experiences. This memory is from the early years of the Vietnam War when I was a pilot flying combat missions over North Vietnam. I'll bet you have similar rea...

Full-time Airstreaming is a dream for many people. There's a side of the RV lifestyle most people aren't aware of, so they can't consider it. Incrementally building a strong strategy will help, as will paying attention to little things. After all, Ai...

Once you fully commit so you can't turn back, then all sorts of manner of things occur that we never would have expected. In the most wonderful ways, people and resources, and events turn up. I finished the first Trans-America believing that at the r...
