There is no good answer to being a woman; the art may instead lie in how we refuse the question.

Burning House: Betrayal as Innovation by Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara | Mike Hoolboom
Books
I read about Zen for years, sipping a glass of wine, having a smoke, curled up with some old bit of understanding. I thought it was cool. But I didn’t understand anything until I got my butt on a cushion. I was in a burning house. Until you recognize that there’s something on the other side of the door that you really want, you won’t go through it. What’s on the other side? A life that has meaning. If you’re freezing or hot, tired and frustrated – all of that pales if you’re living a life that has meaning. Even when you’re suffering you’re dancing for joy. How to move towards something, instead of abandoning disastrous situations, forced to leave?

We’re heading into dark times. This is how to be your own light in the Age of Trump
My heart breaks for the United States of America. It breaks for those who think they are my enemies as much as it does for my friends. You still have your freedom, so use it. There are many groups organizing for both resistance and subsistence, but we are heading into dark times, and you need to be your own light. Do not accept brutality and cruelty as normal even if it is sanctioned. Protect the vulnerable and encourage the afraid. If you are brave, stand up for others. If you cannot be brave – and it is often hard to be brave – be kind.

But most of all, never lose sight of who you are and what you value. If you find yourself doing something that feels questionable or wrong a few months or years from now, find that essay you wrote on who you are and read it. Ask if that version of yourself would have done the same thing.

You're Ready Enough - Lion's Roar
The mind-set of samsara is that we can only be happy if we are someone other than our present self. Someday, somewhere, somehow—different. Oh, the things we would do if we were smarter, richer, thinner, if we had more knowledge or better opportunities. This is the clinging to a self that generates dukkha, or pervasive unsatisfactoriness. Dukkha often manifests in negative self-images and accompanying fantasies of a better me. Buddhism, by offering an alternate focal point, can shift our primary focus from this futile pursuit of our ideal selves. Instead of trying to be perfect, we focus on purifying our underlying motivations so that we can wake up, show up, and act with enlightened intention—right here, right now, just as we are.

Visiontyping and the Hands-On Executive
Most of you already know that I feel very strongly about the value of high-fidelity prototypes (see www.svpg.com/blog/files/high-fidelity-prototypes.html). A visiontype is
essentially a prototype, but with some key differences:

- a visiontype is not meant to be used as a spec, so it only typically covers the main concepts required to get the key ideas across; there is no effort made to be complete in any sense.

- a visiontype often happens very early in the process, even before an actual project gets started.

- a visiontype often goes beyond the scope of a single project, and is very often associated with a product strategy.

- a visiontype is a key tool for communication between the product team and the whole executive team.

- a visiontype can be a very effective tool for communicating a product strategy to the entire product team.

- a visiontype helps the executive to see both the power and the limitations of his ideas, often giving rise to new and better insights.

Visiontypes are also useful for other situations. Sometimes when you are trying to solve a difficult problem, you¹ll want to focus in on the key issues, and try out a few approaches. You can do this in a visiontype and test the concept with users. Once you¹ve narrowed down the big things, you can evolve your visiontype into a prototype with more of the functionality represented.
