Update #1 - Celebrate! 100 preorders + the importance of LIVED experiences March 6, 2019

Hi Friend!

I'm very excited that you helped us hit our first milestone of more than 100 preorders in just the first week of the campaign! Thank you for your support.

One concept from the book that I'm really excited about is the importance of lived experience in shaping leaders.  That is, we must go beyond an intellectual understanding of an experience and be fully immersed to really understand what it feels like. 

What specific feelings do you get when you are out amongst the redwoods or climbing a volcano? What is it like when you are splashing holy water on your face or trying to figure out how to bribe a militant rebel?  You get the full range of emotions, the real lived experiences

When you are out in the deep dark forest, the trees are working their magic on your entire being. You get the physiological benefits of calm and clarity, immune boosting and enhanced creativity. Its like a hack for connecting with something bigger than yourself.

When you drop into a new country with a new language and culture and money, you get the lived experience of being a total noob and having to figure out everything again for the first time.

You are rewiring your brain and experiencing emotions that you can only get through these lived experiences.

This will allow you as a leader draw on this bank of experiences to make better decisions, be less surprised by new encounters, be comfortable with the full range of emotions, and be in tune with the larger systems at play (ecological, social, biological).

If you want to continue to be involved with this book project, you can start by sharing your personal story of transformative experiences here (you might even make it into the book!):  https://form.jotform.com/90567061492157 

Another way to help would be to share ideas with me about organizations that might benefit from a workshop or keynote on these type of leadership topics.

Thank you for your support! 

Derek
