There are only four of us that remain as the founding group that started meeting back in July 2004. G. B. will be in the "spotlight" and I'm sure it will be interesting. Reading about C.S. Lewis's group called the Inklings, Vistage serves this purpose for me. A group of very talented business professionals meeting monthly for friendship, "carefrontation", business idea stimulation, and personal development. In fact, every meeting I get some sort of inkling - a whisper, a nudge from one of the members.
I reviewed my inklings and scribbles from all the 2016 meetings and found the pages littered with quotes, ideas, goals, to dos, and a tapestry my own and others comments. With twelve years of nudges and notes, I can see a pattern improvement and growth.
My next Spotlight #11 is March 2017 and that responsibility launches me into what has become a very enjoyable activity of self reflection, philosophical musing, and deep emersion of research and learning. Covering all topics from personal mission, time/money, risk/reward, luck, happiness, longevity, Heaven, friendship and even "Golden Oldies", I wait to get inspired by a subject that will be fun to research and valuable information for the other members.
So what will be the subject? Business topics I'm considering - Leadership; Customer Experience; Technology Shifts; Margin or Revenue; Ethics Interpersonal topics I'm considering - Memories, Hobbies and Habits; Creativity; Giving;
I need an inkling :)
