Neville DeAngelou


Like any good mother, her desire was to have her child grow bright and bold, and to be full of good humor and wit, and to be generous and courageous and kind.

For, being such, how could anyone not have the most beautiful story?

After all, what is the code and concept of life, of living, of humanity, if it is not to find one's calling and to have that calling be greater than one's self; if it is not to pursue that calling and complete it with joyous self-respect?

_ Neville


Imperfectly Perfect

Profitable Interactions (Part One)

We reconstituted four of our value concepts - balance, surplus, deficit and debt - aligning each to be in dynamic equilibrium with our contributing capacity over time.

We clarified our core values to be congruent with who we are, what we are about, and where we are going, then declared our preference to be profitable in life (not just in business).

We brought (imbeded with who & what we are) the following into the real marketplace (not just a financial market):

  • Time = money + + + (not just money), all re-envisioned
  • Fuel = energy + + + (not just energy), all re-defined
  • Capability = ability + initiative + capacity (not just skillset)

We took informed notice of the following prevalent viable activities occuring in the real marketplace (not merely the ubiquitous shadow market):

  • investing
  • labor
  • delivery of negotiable value (goods, services & ideas)

We remain cognizant of ongoing activist pressures impacting the evolution of life's real marketplace, in particular the following:

  • Choices
  • Challenges
  • Changes

In order to identify shared values congruent with our vision and to optimize our market value concomitant with desirable interactions we've meticulously defined 'relevant' metrics to chart our success.

Welcome to the fifth episode of Getting 'It' Done - investing - curated by Neville DeAngelou, highlighting two premium influences frequently missed during frantic market activities: a) resonance and b) responsiveness. This is life-changing.


Guess who Is TOTALLY invested in each of us?

Isn't life good? Finally, time-travel! Let's just say. Family and friends you trust made their one and only trip allowed then returned excited, but because of the limitations of our language they cannot share their experience with you. Your turn! Would you choose to travel back in time to say, chat with Adam and Eve, forward in time to observe the farthest state of the universe, or stay put on time to press on with what you're doing?

How Do you Do It?

lights - camera - action
- reprogram your path -

Optimize ROI

SCENARIO: 1. Action requires action. You'd hardly accuse a dog chasing its tail of inaction because the ball didn't move. That dog is doing, but nothing expected is happening. Nor would you be thrilled tossing a ball to a dog squatted trying to figure out the dynamics between you and the ball. There is, however, a huge operational range between analysis paralysis and Catch Me If You Can. Where is your sweetspot along that spectrum? While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to accomplishing every good thing, there are revealing patterns. One pattern of success reveals superior returns on invested effort when fixed is differentiated from variable and executed efforts are optimized accordingly. Does that work for you? Do you know what is fixed and what is variable throughout your endeavor? Do you need to make a shift? Try that fix; see if it works for you.

2. Resonance. This is the magic. This is the secret sauce. This is the genie. This is one of the invisible forces behind luck! You've heard the following many times: timing is everything - yes; develop momentum - yes; you need an emotional connection - yes! These are all taps from the reservoir of resonance. Resonance - one of our four 'magical' pillars of great successes is a critical component of phenomenal growth. You might hear folks using terms like frequency or energy or being on the same wavelength; what they are actually tapping into is RESONANCE. Now we know the word for it. It is an essentail component of profitable interactions and optimal returns on Investment. RESONANCE. (We'll reference this again, so if you haven't reviewed the video above, this is your chance. Take it.) How many wow-e-wow-e super-duper mega innovations and creations have we shared with you? How many times have you heard the likes of 'right-time-right-place' or 'I don't know how it happened' or 'we caught fire'? Mega achievements! Go review your favorites: you'll spot this sweet spirit - resonance - performing wonders. Now that you know, what will you do? HERE IS A RECOMMENDATION: observe each step in the process of birthing resonance. Translate and apply those steps, where applicabe, to your endeavor, achieve resonance. Voila! See how that fix works for you. But don't get burned, there is a downside! Ask Facebook. Ask Twitter. And let 909 human beings who swallowed deadly cyanide laced cool-aid in desperation for hope be your cautionary note. Resonance is no respector of persons! But you can be.

During this series we are getting things done in fresh new ways with fresh new applications using solid working principles and employing exciting innovations.

Each episode includes real life scenarios underscoring our central theme, alongside informed insights, actions and recommendations from exceptional creators, influencers and producers.

In a remarkably innovative way you've not experienced before, each episode will transform one of the seven deadly sins into a fresh new lens and a BS Meter that will further enhance our abilites to get things done superbly well.





Today's pivot QUESTION: if profitable interactions involve these three reciprocal considerations: 1) time demand (availability to interact); 2) time value (impact on outcome); and 3) time rate (quality of iinteraction)

- what effective steps are you currently taking to establish and better your time value?



* * *


What Is In Your Personal Toolkit?

Time is a most precious commodity. What is the real value of yours? Many of the more pronounced concepts of time are only partially true, for example, time is money, or not true at all, for example, we all have the same amount of time. Let's reasses this precious gift package in order to ascertain what might be the best tools for each of us to effectively deal with (or deploy) our alotted portions of time.

First, let's take the previous hour (sixty minutes) before this very moment. How was yours deployed? Did you

  • invest that time
  • spend that time
  • pass that time or
  • waste that time

Those are not arbitrary apportionments and usages of time. The real value of one's time is highly dependent on the mix per slot of time and the market exchange rate for each portion during that slot of time. {{A reminder: 1) our time is more than money; 2) the marketplace referred here is the 'whole' market, i.e., the time-space (community) in which one's life operates.}}

Two people may have the same span of time, but not necessarily have an equivalent amount of time in view of their differing time values per that time slot. Once we understood this we were and are able to substantially improve the quality and value of our daily interactions. Recommendation: invest some of your time understanding this concept. It is a mindset shift for some. Every moment of time (in total) is NOT the same as the next. (Perhaps you are acquainted with a wealthy uncle or grandma whose, say, 6PM hour is an unequivocal DO NOT DISTURB hour. Now you know. Wisdom.)

Let's see how effectively you'll assess the usage and deployment of your precious allotment. During the period of your last sleep (whenever it was and for however long it was), was that time

  • invested?
  • spent?
  • passed?
  • or wasted?

Can you tell the difference? You will be better off knowing the difference. Value the difference. Be deliberate. Be aware of the value of the action before the fact, not after the fact. Huge difference! (A required skillset: decision-making.)

Similarily for your meal, meeting, meet-up, and every other usage of your precious commodity!

How well do you currently recognize, apportion, and are able to raise your time value in the life market in order to meet the goals satisfying your vision? This is huge.

Note: your 6AM time slot next Saturday - smartly - may not have the same time value as your last Tuesday's 1PM time slot. One may be wisely invested and the other wisely spent. It is crucial to know the difference. That walk through the woods, for example, may be a great investment or a waste of time. When you are deliberate you don't have to guess which it is nor hope for the best. Also, for example, when you respect the difference between investing, spending, passing and wasting, your internal argument as to whether, say, you should strive to sleep 6 or 7 or 8 or 9 hours (or pick any other troubling activity) based upon whichever demigod has declared their miracle number will disappear. Vanish. You will decide. Use their's as a valuable reference. That's smart.

Your time value is not an arbitrary number. One's calendar (or lack thereof) re-envisioned under invested, spent, passed and wasted categories is a rough indicator of one's time value. If we do not value our slots of time we are hardly likely to deploy them smartly; we may unwittingly devalue large allotments. If your time value is inflated your bubble will soon burst; you will exhaust yourself; and may have over-priced yourself for the market you're in.

Understanding your time value will afford you greater command of your yesses and your nos. It will reduce your stress levels. It will inform your sense of wealth. It will improve your health. It will lengthen the durations of your sweet smile. And much more. If this concept is new to you, spend some time understanding it. It is a massive shift from general norms.

What tools do you have in your toolkit to facilitate you measuring, apportioning, appraising and accounting your time value - your wealth?

One thing remains true for everyone: time does not stay tucked under the matress. Time passed is gone! No one favored! Gone. All privileges revoked! Re-discover how your time is being invested, spent, passed and wasted. Create the right mix for your life, for your growth, for the achievement of your dreams. It wont be the same as mine. Or hers! Or his! Or theirs! Or Steve Jobs'. Or Martin Luther King's. Or Lady Gaga's.

So, how wealthy are you? Enjoy it.

When all is said and done, as my granny used to remind me, "Let every minute count!" A wise woman, that lady.

What must you have in your toolkit? If you don't have it yet, invest in the finest set of decision-making tools available. You will cherish them.

This episode's fresh new lens is greed: def - "intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth or power." (Which of LIFE'S virtues would you consider a counterpoint to greed? 100 points. To compare your answer see Flight Of The Fused Monkeys - Listen to it - Read It.)

"An infinity of forests lies dormant in the dream of an accorn."

_ The Tea Lover




Take stock of the nature of your negotiable value:

  • your goods (those satisfying essential needs)
  • your services (those supporting customer value)
  • your ideas (those solving real problems)
  • your being (a sample of the magnificence of creation)

How profitable to you, your community, and the world are your offerings?

We do better when we know better!



Responsiveness is a crucial element of interactions. How do you respond to life's challenges and opportunities?

Do you have a default response and an adjusted response? Are you usually satisfied or disatisfied with your usual response?

Are you generally aggresive, defensive, empathic, disengaged, delayed, deliberative, aloof, or don't care in your approach? Do you believe approach matters?

What foundational narratives and-or groundfloor noises infiltrate your interactions, thus impacting the way you respond? Do those enhance or detract from the effectivenss of your response? What can you do to have all aspects working together optimally?

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Doing nothing, saying nothig, IS a response! (Ignoring that reality negatively impacts interactions whether you are on the delivering end or the recieving end, inclusive of those observing the interaction).

NOTES: When responding, realize that your response is always more about you than about its recipient. Allow your natural response to inform you. The profitablility of your interactions improves as responsiveness improves.




The clock chimes. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes again. Then minutes tick away. The clock chimes.


Take Action

"Know what you own. Understand what you claim. Believe you can achieve what you conceive then call it by its name. Mine! The extent to which you have this clarity of mind, this purity of understanding, this strength of belief, you have the fire, the fuel, the impetus, the passion, the determination, the willpower you require to pursue and retrieve your truest desire. But do not claim what does not belong to you. It will not keep you . . . it will suffer you but for only so long."

Riding Moby Dick



You are valued. You are important. What you experience is important. Your intention matters. You are a whole being. You are a true wonder. You diminish yourself whenever you pit valued elements of who you are against vital elements of who you are: your intuitive self against your intellectual self, your rational self against your emotional self, your gut against your heart against your head. Don't be put at war against yourself: you are a masterpiece. An intricate being. Human!

How do YOU make your Interactions More Profitable?

Life: it is a dance. It gets better with practice; its music is in your heart and in your soul and in your blood and in your bones. Life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. You have a partner – your spirit. You can have a party if you like, but choose smartly who you invite, for life – your life – is a dance. It gets better with practice, unless you stop the music or so crowd your dance floor there is no space to move or be moved within it. Explore. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice until the dance becomes the dancer and the dancer becomes the dance and life and all of existence becomes a singular flow. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. Dance.

BS Meter: Envy

Is your BS meter jiggling wildly? That is not unusual in the broad market place. In the frantic hustle-bustle of hawking goods, services and ideas, there is lots of sneezing: viruses, dellibating infections, incurable diseases, anxieties. The wilder the jiggle, the greater the need for high dossages of compassion and humility and habits that coalesce into peace of mind. The grander our successes, the more urgent the requirement for high doses of compassion and humility and habits that coalesce into peace of mind. Keep yourself full to overflowing with those. They will fuel your joy. They will innoculate you against green-eyed infections.



Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

The Great Teller shares An Epic Truth

Across the nation and around the world there is a long rumble.

It is a rumble so loud it strikes ready ears as a distant clap of a fierce thunder. It is a rumble so low, it rides beneath the noise of a thousand human fears; it can no longer be heard. Fear of flight, fear of heights, fear of sand, fear of snow, fear of monsters in the closet, fear of bugs in the pillow, fear of cats, fear of bats, fear of strangers at the door, fear of being lost, fear of being laughed at, fear of being stuck in the toilet bowl, fear of whites, fear of blacks, fear of browns, blues and yellows, fear of nakedness, fear of the unknown, fear of being hurt.
