Neville DeAngelou

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?

Profitable Exchanges

We've come this far! Whoow! Are you also feeling the moment for a celebration: a few shouts of gratitude; a gigantic exhalation; a recognition that you and your team are getting 'it' done; perhaps even a few sound reasons to dash over and hug somebody in a ginormous "thank-you" for nudging you or bolstering you this far along?

Go ahead; give yourself permission.

Sweet! But we're not done. So far, with a) a much richer grasp of who we are, where we are, and what we're about; b) clarity on our core values and our shared values; c) strategic thinking and goal-setting with sensible metrics; and d) timely deployment of appropriate skillsets; we are braving whole-hearted through life's broad market, awoke to our present value on this planet and of the enormous potential of fellow travelers blessed to be on its journey.

We are taking stock of our negotiable value and searching out ways to design these to meet market needs. We are re-imagining our varied interactions in order that they would be profitable in the broad market. We've redefined our relationship with time. We are being more judicious with our resources, inclusive of our gifts, talents and skills. We are improving our decision-making: listening better, leveling more squarely, learning as we go!

In this life market, profitable means uniquely beneficial (personally, communally, inter-relationally, in body, mind and spirit).

We are rediscovering how extremely important knowledge is; that its significance rises substantially with intelligence and understanding, and that wisdom is the be-all and end-all! Ours is a unique learning curve: a dynamic yet sobering experience of head and heart and gut passionately engaged in this dare to be in the crucible of a dream that is bigger than us. And now that we've begun exploring smarter ways of creating profitable exchanges - wow - it's a brand new ball game!

Welcome to the eighth episode of Getting 'It' Done - trust - curated by Neville DeAngelou. Trust is the firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. Trust is not risk. Risk is not trust. In the broad market both are at play. And we are in the game. You?


Be wary of the naked man offering you a shirt.


Enjoy actionable discoveries continuously shared - smartly - particularly those that uplift, inspire, promote harmony, expand opportunities, exemplify beauty, and reveal wonder, in other words, those proven to strengthen our emboldened exercise of genuine love through all of love's fertile dimensions, supplying those of us who are blessed and inspired to take action with necessary skillsets to be awesome in our real world.

Potluck Poker

SCENARIO: In general, we have two eyes, but can't see all; two ears, but don't hear all; one mouth with one tongue - would the better we should quicker learn - from all of telling-and-telling-and-telling, truth be heard, CONTEXT MATTERS, lacking which 'all tellings' are a-lying, so don't let a lie sleep; let lies die a good dying quick, though burial patches are not cheap and memorial's kindness is nuch too sweet to cheat a cock-and-bull of its legacy.

Kris and Taylor are college seniors. They've been roommates since they were sophomores. Taylor's family is split: mother - an immigrant - is on a cruise; father, long out of touch. This is the twelfth year running of Kris's parents' family tradition of a long holiday weekend on their ranch.

Kris's grandma and grandpa (mother's side) have been in attendance six years running, and is expected to be present once again and as bright and cheery as always. Kris's grandparents (father's side) - granny Dee and grandaddy Joey - have not attended since the first gathering.

Kris's eldest brother, brother's wife and their two children will be there like tornados, as always. Kris's sister and sister's husband will be there as helpful as they always are since marriage. Kris's other brother will be attending too, this time with his fiance. Her first! Kris and Taylor confirmed their intention to attend; this would be Taylor's second year as a guest.

As part of their tradition, everyone contributes his or her own secret 'favorite' or 'specialty' dish to the occasion - each and everyone, even babies. Creativity is a highlight! It is a fun and wild experience trying to figure who brought what, and why, and how it was made, and where it would rank in the anals of this family's tradition.

Last year, Taylor's suprise dish was Pigfoot Souse, a Caribbean specialty picked up from a trip to Trinidad. {{ Ingredients: 1 lb pigs feet; 2 cloves garlic; 1 pimento pepper; 1 bunch watercress; salt to taste; 2 cucumbers; 1 green hot pepper; 3 limes; 1 medium sized onion sliced; cold water; and 10 leaves of chadon beni. }} This year, Taylor's secret preparation is Balut (a Filipino and Vietnamese street food specialty). Kris, a fitness coach on the side, is taking Quinoa over a tah-dah surprise.

It is a long drive across two and a half states from the university to the ranch. Kris and Taylor are packed, prepared to leave immediate on Kris's return from work. Taylor is to drive the first shift. Out from the hectic coaching session and in a hurry, Kris noticed two VMs.

First VM. "Hi sweetheart. Good news and bad news! Your granny Dee and grandaddy Joey are coming. Finally. It's got your father on pins and needles. He doesn't want Taylor to come; this is our family tradition. And you know what your granny and grandaddy are like. We are a family. Besides, we can't risk eating another weird dish with pig hoof and whatever other nastiness was in Taylor's dish. No one liked it. It was awful, and I don't feel like having to pretend again that I like something I actually hate. We just don't want to hurt Taylor's feelings."

Second VM. "Kris, your dad wants to be sure you are CLEAR that Taylor is NOT welcome at our family tradition."

Today's pivot QUESTION: if you accept that a highly profitable exchange is a win-win-win which produces a satisfaction that is at minimum one of the following: a) a symbiosis, b) a sustainment, c) a surplus

- what are you doing to ensure that what is good for you and your endeavor is also good for those in agreed participation with you?

What Is In Your Personal Toolkit?

C. E. O. Have you made that crucial life transition? If so, what are your biggest lessons learned transitioning from rookie to player, player to leader, leader to CEO of YOUR LiIFE?

Do your thoughts, actions, communication, process, strategies, metrics, and the like, reflect your role as CEO of YOUR LIFE? How so?

Do you regulalry find yourself behaving more like a rookie, having to run back to mommy and daddy, as it were, having to seek permission, having to be on the lookout for the swinging rod and stinging stick, rather than being a stand-up-stand-out CEO of YOUR LIFE, as you were created to become?

Do you lack trust in yourself? If so, what do you need to do in order to accept your role as a distinguished CEO of YOUR LIFE?

It is very hard, if not impossible, for a person who doesn't trust him or herself to trust anyone else.

Do you feel guilty and ashamed, or disallowed, or unprepared, performing your role as CEO of YOUR LIFE? If so, what growth patterns or development do you need in order to become an outstanding performer in your role?

You won't do what you don't know you ought to be doing, nor when you don't know how to do it. You will languish in your lazy chair expecting someone else to always come running hand and foot to your aid. Who taught you so to be? Liar!

Are you forbidden from being CEO of YOUR LIFE?

Are you, in fact, playing Potluck Poker with your life? REMINDER: this life is YOURS - the ultimate gift.

You may want to consider packing a set of essential cooking utensils in your toolshed. No excuses. Have a cookbook handy too, bookmarked at your favorite childhood recipes.

And start cooking.

Be well-nourished.

Do you have a ceo in your toolkit? We highly recommend having a ceo handy. Not to be confused with your snipit, the ceo, also referred to as the master's pruning tool, sometimes called the handy grooming tool, is quite versatile in the able hands of courageous leaders, creative thinkers, and the consumate artist. The ceo is used for cutting, edging and oiling. The ceo enhances confidence, promotes excellence, and moderates optimism. It is a high-performers must have. This is a tool for mastery. Be sure to include a ceo in your personal toolkit. Scott Adams got it spot on: "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."

This episode's fresh new lens is envy: def - "a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else's possessions, qualities, or luck." (Which of LIFE'S virtues would you consider a counterpoint to envy? 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




Consider the following essential elements of true power:

  • freedom
  • love
  • intention

How do these empower you?

Reconsider them in terms of your balance, surplus, deficit and debt. Let your discovery inform what you do next.

Knowing better positions us to do better!



Context matters. Perspective matters. Intention matters. That's what we've found traveling through the broad market place. They matter that much more in every push to foster profitable interactions.

What have you found? Do you find that any of it matters? How?

To engage profitable exchanges, we have to interact. Interactions are essential. These include interactions with players, processes, relationships, systems and environments. We notice that poor interactions negatively impact all exchanges in this broad market place.

What questions and-or issues arise whenever you are engaged in exchanges specifically intended to profit at a minimum you?

There are many kinds of exchanges. For example, one category of exhanges would include gifts, generosity, kindness, and the like.

What other categories of exchanges are you engaged in or familiar with?

There is, of course, the category of exchanges well known as commerce - buying and selling - the express purpose of which is to gain, to profit, to create surplus. So, here is a question: if the goal is to exchange value for value, where-in is the profit?

We are finding that in places where participants of an exchange lack appropriate understanding of this equation, there, negative interactions and outcomes persist.

Can you think of or have you experienced this? What do you find that is often missed?

How do you avoid negative exchanges? How do you foster profitable exchanges?




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 create nourishing and fruitful exchange environments?

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: Anger

Is your BS meter needle going wild? The reason might be obvious. You are in frustration hell. Stuck. Don't know what to do. Don't know how to do what you know you need to do. Don't want to do what you suspect you might have to do. After everything you've done you are back to the same place again. You are unable to influence menaingful change. Noise! Noise! Noise! No freedom. No love. Unsure of intentions. No trust. Don't know where to turn or go. See if your needle is wiggling in the 'Make Better Decisions' region. Act accordingly.



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.
