But actually, in a twisted management-consulting way, it makes perfect sense. Strategy, according to my wonderful friend Mark, is simply a case of knowing where you are, knowing where you want to go, and then figuring out how to get there.
Easy as pie. Not.
I have been thinking about it all day, and here is what I came up with: Sarah was fun to be with. She made me laugh, and with her I always felt like it was okay – everything was going to be okay. (Short. Sweet. And said with closed-eye reverence at my #Awesomeness.)
But seriously, that's what I want from my life and what I want to give other people: time to exhale; a moment to pause; a sense of the rightness of the whole, not the madness of the moment; a place to be honest, compassionate and loved, but not let off the hook. Essentially, I want to be the human equivalent of a deep, loving hug that doesn’t absolve but totally accepts.
Not sure what those management-consulting guys with their big ties and fancy cufflinks would make of that. But that is my vision: being with Sarah was like having a big hug and you know you were seen in your wholly human form and absolutely loved for it.
Now. How to make it happen?
And, somewhat importantly – how to monetise it?
