24-Hour Reinvention Center: Your Membership Questionnaire

“Longevity in this business is about being able to reinvent yourself or invent the future.”
-Satya Nadella

The quote above is from one of the world’s…

foremost corporate CEOs (Microsoft)…but it applies to everyone in any business right now. That means you…and the business of life.

At some point, there is a need to move on from kvetching about how painful current changes are and how things are not “the way it used to be” and to start looking forward. Let’s both understand and simply get over it: things will never be “the same.”

With many folks in both our CareerGuy and Back Forty communities, we are having conversations for looking forward, led by questions such as “Where’s the opportunity in all this?” or “If this is not happening to me but happening for me, how am I to learn/grow/expand/develop out of all this?”

Those are questions and conversations that can help right now.

And, not to be either Machiavellian or Pollyanna about the times we’re in but, throughout history, humanity steps up to the plate and meets the challenges of the environment with innovation, strategy, and new ways of thinking.

We re-invent ourselves, and we invent the future.

So, perhaps you can’t actually physically visit your gym today, but…

— and this question is not for the faint of courage nor contrary thinking muscle —

if, just IF, you brought the gym of a shelter-in-place, pandemic situation forth for yourself, why might you have done that?

What innovations, strategies or new ways of thinking could be born now…which would never have been birthed in steady-as-she-goes times?

If there ever was a time to ask and answer for yourself such powerful questions, this is it. And, the good thing is, with being fairly home alone these days, nobody will see you conversing with yourself anyway.

NOTE: We’ve been offering twice weekly conversations for our communities to help twist our minds toward these alternative ways of thinking. If you are in career transition or waylaid professionally by the current pandemic, or a business owner or organizational executive dealing with new issues due to COVID-19, or simply want to converse pro-actively, join us for powerful questions and (our best possible) answers.

Join Darrell W Gurney and Alexandra Levin for two half-hour, full participation zoom meeting each week as we all learn how to play work and life differently in these very interesting times.

Tuesdays and Fridays at 12noon PST:

These zoom conferences are offered simply as a service to make our particular skills, knowledge, understandings and aptitudes available to career professionals and business owners who may have questions we can answer or issues or challenges we might help resolve.

We’re not experts on everything, but we may know a thing or two about a thing or two that could help you.

(PSST: If you want to also join our other Back Forty community for a more finding-the-blessings-in-this meeting beforehand, register here:
