Michael Gervais

Michael Gervais inspired this blog. In this talk, he talks about writing your personal philosophy. He gets into why it is important. Most importantly, he has the students write the first draft of their personal philosophy.

Of course, I jumped on this idea. I made it my mission to write my personal philosophy. I am still working on it. The podcast has been devoted to this mission. But, alas, the final copy is not yet done. So did I give up? Of course not! This blog is a double down on the mission. I will find my philosophy one way or another.

He brings up the idea of being and becoming. He mentions “best self”. Most notably to me, he brings up some examples of people that had a clear personal philosophy. I won’t spoil it by telling you who he mentioned. Watch the video to find out.

I help people articulate what makes their service exciting, meaningful, and valuable to their stakeholders by identifying why they want to serve, what they are most proud of, what challenges they want to take on, and how they plan on showing results. I do that by researching issues, identifying clear positions, helping them align their positions with what their customers want, and managing work flow to deliver efficiently and effectively. In the future, I'd love to help companies improve on how they communicate with their customers.
