Welcome and thank you for joining me!
Whether we’re dealing with personal chaos, work, technology, or even nature, we have come to accept that we live in an age of relentless change, where the ground continually seems to be shifting. As a result, we face new hurdles on a daily basis. It’s evident that we have to adapt if we want to be ahead of the curve.
Thankfully there are plenty of resources available to help us wade through these daily twists and turns. Several books, articles, blogs are around us to help. However, absorbing these resources could sometimes feel like drinking from a fire hose.
So, what do we need?
Apple picking. Have you done one? It’s exciting and fun to be in the wilderness, delicious looking apples all around, grabbing the apples directly from the tree, taking a wholesome bite and – it makes you pucker, your face scrunches, eyes squint and lips pressed tightly. What did just happened? Sour. Do you sometimes feel the same reading a few pages from a promising book?
The answer is simple but not straightforward. Imagine the most delicious apple making it’s way toward you everytime you reach for one. Sweet.
Likewise, what if we had a carefully selected and curated step-by-step guide presented itself to you for preparing you to handle these small and significant changes confidently.
That is the central premise of COMMON INTEREST. A simple yet powerful way to build our wisdom around a wide-range of topics for everyday life. I term them as building blocks for shaping our foundation, thinking, conversation, and interaction with ourselves and others.
It’s an experiment.
I don’t have to admit that I don’t have all the answers to the ways of life. However, we all collectively have enormous knowledge and experience, and most importantly, a noble desire to share with others. I subscribe to the philosophy that by sharing ideas, knowledge and experience, we grow and mature as a community. And even if you find yourselves taking sour bites once in a while, you know that through our collective sharing, we will turn that into something useful.
This is a humble attempt to share what I know (that you could use), and as a side effect, I too will continue to improve myself.
Share. That’s what we do when we find something of value. If you like my post, I invite you to extend this thread by sharing your own experience and knowledge.
I will be back soon with topics of mutual interest, yet not very common. Stay tuned.
Success to you!
