#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

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. 

Together

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.

#bettertogether 

It is just good business sense. We didn’t get here alone, so let’s continue together. We are all living an epic.

ep·​ic | \ ˈe-pik \

Definition of epic

a long narrative poem in elevated style recounting the deeds of a legendary or historical hero

A lot of #bettertogether happens in an epic. Join me. 

Except from Simon Sinek talking “Together is Better”
