Celebrations matter!


https://www.smallfish.us/celebrations-matter/

This year is so sad because of limitations on physical gatherings. I know many organizations which have canceled holiday parties and celebrations as a result. It’s the wrong way to think about it. Sure, you can’t do what you’ve traditionally done, and it’s disappointing. But the real question is: what can...

Not perfect, but good enough


https://www.smallfish.us/not-perfect-but-good-enough/

We laid my mother to rest recently. Given that it’s 2020, we weren’t able to have a proper funeral, and had a short outdoor service with extended family on Zoom. It wasn’t the ideal. But you know what? It was plenty good, and respected everyone’s limitations. That’s what this whole year...

Is it just survival?

A Gray Scale


https://www.smallfish.us/a-gray-scale/

Nothing seems to be clearly black and white anymore. Everything mushes into a vague shade of gray. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. You can make things more clear – especially for the team you work with. It’s about building on what IS clear. If you’re building a house,...

“Extractive” and “Contributive”


https://www.smallfish.us/extractive-and-contributive/

What can my company contribute to society? That’s a remarkably powerful question, and so much different than the typical way of thinking about business. The usual attitude is “extractive” – in other words, how can I get more than an equal share. More customers, more money, more market. That’s a zero-sum...
