Today’s talk is about strawberry ice cream and all those other ideas we get in our heads, and then can’t let go of. Like keeping our clients out of jail or from being deported, or like getting our deals done.

It’s our job, so we do need to do it. But is there a way to do it without so much longing? And without so much affection for our no doubt stellar abilities, and infatuation with our own success?

Because if not, it’s a bit of a setup, isn’t it? Aren’t we going to live in a state of concern (will I win?) and at least occasionally, grief (I lost!).

Maybe there’s another path. It’s worth a look.
