Ashton’s Weekend Read(s)

The art of letter writing is something I’ve noticed leaders do very well. I’ve read two letters to shareholders in the last couple of weeks….one short, one very long. Jeff Bezos ends his final letter as CEO at Amazon in the way only he can. And Jamie Dimon has the sharpest vision I’ve seen.

Godin on Investment and Expenses.

Love and Friendship from the Center for Action and Contemplation.

Red Bird Explains Himself by Mary Oliver.

Approaching…

…is a day when we will have more concern about our mental health, attitude, posture, and peace than we will with regards to our financial wealth.

Truly, you don’t want a billion dollars.

You want a billion beautiful thoughts, insights, and moments.

The Invitation

We are all in the School of Love.

For our friends that have forgotten this or have never been told about this wonder of wonders, our job is to gently remind them, enroll them, or invite them. And when we forget, may we have the gift of friends that gently remind, enroll, and invite us back as well.

There’s no pass or fail here. Anything that feels like failure is simply a comma into a new beginning.

We need you in this eternal classroom that flows over a never-ending riverbed of peace, patience, kindness, perseverance, and hope.

It’s here.

It’s now.

It’s among us.

It’s at hand.

If the voice of one of us missing, that’s one too many.
