Maven Principle

Anger and patience, a study of action and actualization

Anger and patience, a study of action and actualization

My best friend yelled at me last week, a little. She spoke the truth about some of my actions; about my breakneck life pace and some of my recent decisions. I am not mad at her — I expect that from her, and I love her for it. She was angry with me and for me because she is one of the holders of my stories and secrets — a true and trusted friend.

I sit here thinking about those actions and decisions, and I’m angry (at myself).

I've been developing "The Maven Principle" for myself and others to level up life power skills. And as I like to practice what I preach, I'm acting as a guinea pig in developing this workshop. I speak a ton on inclusive workplaces, diversity, personal development, and personal brand, and there are times when my own best practices, morning rituals, and healthy habits falter. I'm human just like anyone else, and there is a myriad of reasons we slip off our paths.
