125: Every Map Needs a Guide
Often, when looking for the right answer in life, we seek out the most intelligent person within your field of inquiry. However, when you’re seeking greater perspective in life, you don’t pursue the most intelligent person you can find, you seek the wisest one. Intelligence can provide us with excellent answers to our questions; Wisdom will offer you a whole new set of questions to consider. Join us today as we look to distinguish that difference and pursue Wise Guides in our journeys of purpose.
124: Interview With Kirk Noonan
Kirk Noonan leads the Convoy Nation at Convoy of Hope. A faith-based nonprofit, focused on easing suffering in the world, Convoy of Hope has served 150+ million people in 125 nations or territories around the world.
In this conversation, Kirk speaks of taking people to the trailheads of great adventures, and guiding many more of us to step into the adventure we are being called into. We hear how when Kirk arrives with the Convoy team in a place of great suffering and devastation, his prayer is not to be kept safe, or to experience great success; rather, his prayer is to be guided to the people in greatest need, and to the greatest stories possible. It’s a prayer and intention of great courage and service.
123: Interview With Corey Manicone
Corey is the Co-Founder and CEO of Zuul, a technology company powering a brand new model of food delivery. Their innovative approach expands the revenue and reach of restaurateurs, while delivering a unique experience to customers. Whereas so many of the food delivery apps eat away at the (already razor-thin) restaurant margins, Zuul’s model is crafted to put more money in the pockets of the Operators — to help many more people thrive in the business of food.
The journey to get here hasn’t been easy. After Corey had heard his 200th “No” from Venture Capitalists, his wife bought him a framed copy of Roosevelt’s “Man in the Arena” quote, and encouraged him to press on. Corey kept going, and eventually the eyes of Investors were opened to what Corey already saw — a remarkable opportunity to bring innovation and value throughout the entire food industry.
122: Cultivating Your Inner Guide
Before we set out on a journey, we take time to gather our necessary supplies and chart our course. Even with the most informed strategy to reach our destination, we may encounter glitches in the system that lead us down the wrong path. What does it look like to have the courage and decisiveness to pursue what we know is right?
During this episode of the Paterson Podcast, we will consider the evolution of modern-day navigation and how this mirrors the way we negotiate the turn-by-turn directions of our own lives.
121: Preparing For Your Quest
When does preparation for your journey change from precaution to panic? How do you know if your preparation is motivated by resourcefulness or if it is driven by fear and anxiety? This week on the Paterson Podcast we’ll discuss the subtle nuances of preparation and how to distinguish if they are fueling your confidence or your cowardice.
120: What’s Essential for Your Quest?
What distinguishes a treasured map from a trivial one? A treasured map highlights all of the essential information and shields you from all the distractive and noisy stuff. Without the essential information, every step we take forward is planted with caution, suspicion and fear. What about the maps, plans, and playbooks we use to navigate our life and work? Join us today as we discuss how to distinguish the essential information from the distractive stuff so you can confidently plant your feet on your pathway forward.
Having gone through two Paterson faciliated StratOps I have been devouring this podcast picking up wisdom, insight, and perspective on the process. This show interviews leaders across a broad spectrum of businesses and ministries so their is a width and breadth of challlenges faced and various way the Paterson StraOp process has been helpful. I especially enjoy the "quick fire" question at the end of each episode. If strategy and leadership is important to you, then this podcast is a must listen. @RobJacobs_
The steps for real transformation.
I first heard about Tom Patterson from a friend and quickly picked up the book Living The Life You Were Meant To Live and immediately felt encouraged. I couple of years later I had a Life Plan done for me and was amazed by the results. This podcast has me digging in deep yet again.
