#bettertogeher is my mantra for business. As a matter of fact, I have laced into my mission vision values statement.
Mission: To cause thinking that effects “better” by inspiring and collaborating with people.
Vision: To engineer a platform that disciples a #bettertogether mindset.
Values: Where ability, vision, and passion meet freedom, purpose, and movement: STORY.
Why is #bettertogether so important? (at least to me)
Better is about growth. If we live in a way that is always about better, we are enabling ourselves to be in continual forward motion. Better cannot happen while we are still. And here is a clever thought about growth towards better; it is like a molting crawfish or snake shedding its skin. We are evolving in our growth, not just adding more rings. When we live in better, we are continually reframing ourselves.
There are a few things in the idea of together.
1. TRIBE: I have my need for safety and belonging covered, which means I can move up the ladder of my hierarchical needs for a meaningful life.
2. CROWDSOURCING: “Together” is building experiential knowledge and best practices. (Not theory or book smarts.) We gain the ability to stand on the shoulders of giants.
3. CULTURE: Together is where culture happens. In my opinion, culture is our values aligning. Aligned values = strong relationships.
It is just good business sense. We didn’t get here alone, so let’s continue together. We are all living an epic.
