It is Wednesday. Dad just called and said that we should catch this week’s Frontline that is about the retirement system in America. They feature some employees of United and dad just said that the whole show made him so angry hearing about how senior executives treat pensions as the first thing to go.
Do you ever think about that? What if pension programs continue to implode in this country… I have some notes on this from American Theocracy that I still need to type up. We need Americans to save but the economy is built on buying shit we don’t need. How do you serve both? Americans have one of the lowest percentages of personal savings globally. We may be the land of milk and honey but we’re not freeze drying it for a rainy day.
Dr. Eric, Lisa and Maryam all said many things last week that have my head spinning. Thinking about the future, What It All Means, and what not. I think they all three feel like I’m still not truly stepping into my capabilities. All these coaches want to be on Oprah – that being blessed by Our Blessed Mother of Daytime will be their silver bullet. Fuck it, I want to be Oprah – maybe the anti-Oprah (not knocking the Ope but she needs a good shadow side). But Oprah mixed with Art Bell and Stephen Colbert and Lewis Black and Amy Goodman and Greg Palast and Rod Serling and Julia Cameron and Brecht and Artaud all rolled into one. I don’t know what this all means in terms of business, target market, niche, yardy-yardy. But most of my advocates tell me that I need to get a bit more tapped in intuitively.
