1. According to Myers-Briggs what is your personality type?

I want to go to Australia.

Brain Rules by John Medina
4. What are you most passionate about in your work?
I’m passionate about helping people discover their purpose in life and develop a plan to live it.
5. What is your tech device du jour?
I bought a 3M mini projector to use when teaching/leading/consulting. It is small, iPad compatible, and excellent. Also, I am a huge fan of Apple TV and the versatility it provides.
6. Would you prefer money for a housekeeper, cook, gardener, or personal secretary?
I really don’t want any of those people. My wife manages our home and nutrition with excellence. We love gardening and I don’t know what a secretary would do for me.
7. What are your daily reads?
I read a book per week, as a minimum, and several blogs—Seth Godin, Dan Miller, Becoming Minimalist, Mother Earth News. Of course, I read the Bible daily.
8. What social causes fire you up?
Though not a real social cause, I am passionate about helping people discover their entrepreneurial spirit before they are disposed of by a corporation.
9. What historical time period would you most like to visit?
I’d like to visit the 1700s and live among the pirates during their peak along the eastern seaboard and Caribbean. Modern day pirates give classical pirates a bad name.
10. What is the best piece of career advice you’ve received?
Best piece of advice: Keep your parachute packed because you will exit the plane (company) by force or choice and you need to land safely.
