Takeaway #187 core value via #the roots and @questlove

Waiting, navigating the plot, without plans

In the cards, it’s hard to read as a clock with no hands…

Haters don’t know shit about me, they the ones that talk shit

…I was married to a state of mind and I divorced it

The Roots Clock with No Hands

Takeaway #187:  We all get trapped in the mindset of what others perceive about us as being the most relevant, rather than recognizing that what we consider most relevant to our success we should first perceive in others.  Core values and competencies should be determined first, and then the best plan will dictate itself, rather than forcing a plan without establishing core values first.

They music so fluffy, I’ma stay gutter

That shit is kind of popcorn, my shit is so butter

My style never change, in 22 summers

Straight independent, and doing my numbers

Ice Cube It Takes A Nation

Takeaway 125:   Core competency is king.  Stay the course.  Can you really fault meeting expectations and guidance consistently?  Like a Goldman Sachs whisper number…correction…a steady, boring dividend….be butter.
