Dear Friends and Partners,
I've had a very busy month that took me to Mississauga, NYC, 3 awesome workshops and the Canadian book launch of Change Anything where I met author Joseph Grenny. The travel was fantastic and the folks that I learned with at these events, were amazing. I'd love to share with you the long list of cool experiences that I had including buying a Gretchen Fuss painting in SoHo to hanging out with a pair of very successful IT developers in a Manhattan beer garden.
But, the point that I'd like to mention is that you have to raise your hand. Initially, I didn't raise my hand to go on this Eastern trip as I have many pressing obligations back in Edmonton, but Danielle challenged me enough to look at how I could tweak my schedule to make it happen - and I did. As soon as I 'raised my hand' and committed to going, everything fell into place - well almost everything, as there are always a few hiccups.
One thing I thought about New York was the image of 'making it' there. If you have taught yoga or owned a restaurant in NYC for longer than a year, chances are you look like you've made it. In reality your day may be a struggle and you are fighting to attract customers and keep your head above water, but optically you've made it. Why is that? I think many people aren't willing to raise their hand to challenge and competition, be it NYC or any other place or form. When you 'yes' I'll try, you are already halfway there. It may turn out that you don't like NYC or that you learned a better way to do something or another place or career that you'd rather be living out, but for that moment you have 'done it'. The staying power needed in a big city, top company, specific niche is tremendous. The competition extreme, and if you can stay the course, which is always much longer than a year, you have proven your ability to play the game at a higher level.
Here's to upping the game this month or taking time to savour the view from the place you're at.

Original $1B Budget Reduced By 25% As Recession Reduced Cost Of materials
By Bill Mah, Edmonton Journal. June 8th 2011
EDMONTON - Construction of a massive terminal expansion at the Edmonton International Airport is coming in under budget and faster than expected. Adding more than 480,000 square feet — roughly the size of eight football fields — to the existing terminal building was originally budgeted at about $1 billion.
EDMONTON -- Of all the video games former programmer Aaryn Flynn enjoys playing, Scrabble on his iPad is a favourite.
“It’s fun to play with your friends,” Flynn said. “It’s good for travelling too.”
Flynn, the studio general manager at BioWare, an Edmonton-based video game developer, spoke at the TEDx event Saturday inside the Citadel Theatre to a crowd of approximately 200. TEDx is a conference of ideas lead by technology and design industry leaders around the world.
