The Great White Horse ... one of my favorite love songs

I love the simplicity, the imagery and the maturation of love ... going from "He carried me to a castle in the heavens and battled all my dragons on the way" and "I used to dream of a maiden her laughing eyes and loving arms would follow when I sailed around the world and back again" ... to "The time has come and there are no dragons ... and I don't want to sail the seven seas."

Love is like a rough stone rolling and once polished you don't want anything else.

The future of the social web

The world is changing and becoming more connected, networked, open-sourced, and community-driven. What does this really mean? We can't ignore it. It impacts our personal lives, our businesses and or institutions. One aspect of all of this that is irrefutable is that we are most likely to succeed when we engage in the power of pull. Forrester recently released a report on this topic.

My work at Deloitte's Center for the Edge has been instrumental in helping me better understand the major social web shift taking place and the implications thereof.

Just keep moving

No matter the shifts in the external environment, just keep moving. That's all you can do. Just keep moving. Keep the momentum - the inertia.

When challenged most

I had the opportunity to listen to inspiring words this last weekend as I tuned in to our semi-annual worldwide church conference. I was reminded of one of my favorite quotes: "Trials and tribulations, tend to squeeze the artificiality out of us, leaving the essence of what we really are and clarifying what we really yearn for." Neal A. Maxwell
