Editor’s Note: Thanks to Pete Accorti for sending this haunting song from my favorite musicians. Seth and Scott and their bandmates always stretch melodies and lyrics, here even harmonies to make statements about the beauty and the pain of life. This one covers the age-old choice between regret and acceptance of the mistakes we’ve all made in our lives.
Editor’s note: I don’t know how I stumbled on this decade-old book but beyond Gaudiani’s ill-advised “independence declaration”, she riveted my interest. Claire Gaudiani is a well-known student of philanthropy in the USA. The history of American philanthropy (See Zinsmeister from earlier blogs) fascinates me. The second value of this book is her argument in favor of a middle ground between too much government regulation of giving and leaving philanthropy entirely unbound. It’s an endless but worthy concern since neither our government nor our wealthy can be entirely trusted.

About 20 times this year, I will conduct a 3-hour program called “Dream Sketch”. In a highly interactive setting, I help CEOs and business owners define more clearly what they want out of life. We use templates that I have used to plan my own dreams for more than 20 years.
