Life Lessons

Lesson #1: Time with Intention

 Lesson #1 from Our Series: 13 Countries, 13 Lessons at Sea

As we departed from San Diego back on January 7th, amidst the excitement and energy surrounding what was to come, Taylor and I both set about settling into our life on the ship, in the wonderful 5th deck cabin we now call home.

One of the very first challenges we encountered, and have still been struggling with for the entire journey, has been time management.

Time passes very differently when you’re living on a ship. There are no weeks or weekends here, just A days and B days, which allow for alternating schedules day to day.  Meal times are constant, and everyone is present all the time (since we’re all stuck on a ship together), yet it is often impossible to find people.

Working conditions can be difficult; because as a team we don’t have any “off” time, and the second we step out of our room both Taylor and I are usually bombarded with logistics and operations questions.

In addition, with connectivity ranging from “I can’t believe we can skype in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!” to hours spent on a single email or transaction, time required for any task has been incredibly unpredictable.

 

Given these challenges and new perspectives of time as it passes on the ship, Taylor and I have learned a HUGE lesson for how to value time for ourselves and for each other:

LESSON #1: Time Valued comes with intention

>>  Learn how to ASK FOR TIME

In our opinion, time is the most valuable resource everyone has, and when you live in a completely blended work/life environment, you have to evaluate time commitments on a totally different level.

For example, we learned early on that waking up and diving right into an intense work/team conversation in our room was not the best way to start our day. Instead, we learned to put on different “hats” for different times. Sometimes we’re wearing a work hat, other times we’re wearing a friend hat, and yet other times a roommate hat. And for each one, we need to clearly communicate what hat we want to wear, and what we need from others to share time effectively.

Over the course of this voyage, by setting time with intention and putting on different hats, we’re learning how to easily switch between a teammate cranking out gyshido time, an operations resource for our community, and a friend offering a shoulder to cry on.

 

So our takeaway lesson #1 sailing from San Diego  (& our brief stop in Ensenada) was:

 

Wear different hats,

(Clearly communicate what kind of time you are in,

And ASK for time, 

And the kind of time you need from those around you.)

 

Thanks for reading through, more lessons learned coming soon!

Working from the MV Explorer, Unreasonable at Sea

As we’ve sailed across the globe on the team for Unreasonable at Sea, my roommate Taylor and I wonder whether our greatest lessons have been about the world outside or about ourselves.

Working, living, and travelling together has challenged us in more ways than we could ever have anticipated, and now that the finish line is in sight, we think it’s time to start reflecting on the biggest lessons learned from the voyage, particularly those at the intersection of self, team, and community.

So we’re about to embark on a new writing project. 13 posts, 13 lessons, one for each country visited along the way.

Feel free to follow our journey, share your own insights, and help us learn as much as we can from this incredible adventure.

The Burden of Legacy: It is no dream.

Legacy.

A pretty big word around here.

Here being Jerusalem, a city that many nations hold dear due to its history and importance in relation to their people, their culture, their religion. As a proud member of the Jewish religion and culture, I find this place resonates with me on an impossibly deep level. I feel the ties to the land, not magically or mythologically, but rather in a historical sense; with understanding and awe that my ancestors have considered this land sacred for longer than I can truly comprehend. That this land has served as a place of refuge and of tragedy, of life and of death. And that the experience I have today while living in Jerusalem is inextricably tied to the experience my ancestors had in this land so long ago.

Jewish liturgy and culture has been built around this land. Our words and prayers allude to it, our thoughts are encouraged to be constantly tuned to it, our actions are expected to be in support of its preservation and accessibility (disregarding for a moment the unbelievably complex and valuable discussion of which parties this accessibility actually extends to).

While much of Jewish liturgy comes directly from the Torah (bible), many prayers that are Rabbinic in origin were created in times of the diaspora after the destruction of the Second Temple, when Jews around the world only dreamed of life here in this land. At the time, it was out of their reach. At the time, there was no realistic consideration of ownership of the land, there were no human beings dispossessed of their homes in order for us to live here.

1948. Theodore Herzl, infamous for his involvement in Zionism and the establishment of a Jewish State proclaims “If you will it, it is no dream.” And he was right, at present moment we are living the dream that existed for so many before us. The dream of living in the land of the creation of our people, of spiritual grounding and connection according to our religious beliefs.

So what does that mean for us? Now that we are living the dream of our ancestors? Now that we are blessed with the chance to live out the deepest yearning of those who came before us, to embrace a way of life they could only imagine, and to develop their legacy in real life experience?

Questions I still struggle to answer. Legacy, I find, is both a beautiful blessing and an incredibly complex burden.

A Personal Addition:

While living in Israel, I have been able to connect to some of my older family members here, and to learn incredible stories about my personal family history that I had never heard before.

I learned about my grandmother, Beatrice (Batya) Abramowitz, who the B in my name (Shira B) is named after. I learned that she was a brilliant woman, that “Beatrice, she could do anything.” That she used to go to debates with all of the men, and that “nobody could stump her.” I learned that she was one of the few women of her time that received a University Pass upon graduating high school, making her eligible to apply to university in South Africa. I learned that she had no money for this university education, that her wealthy uncle refused her a loan, even when she promised to pay back every penny.

I heard more and more about the abusive man she married, about the way her life spiraled downwards as she was no longer allowed to attend the debates, as she was abused physically and emotionally, and as she fell into a deep depression after the death of her husband and the subsequent signing over of her two youngest children (including my father) to the local Jewish orphanage where they remained for the duration of her lifetime.

I was previously familiar of the tragic portion of the family story; I knew that my grandmother had fallen into depression, I knew that my father had grown up in an orphanage. I never felt connected to her. And suddenly, in my year of “connection,” in my exploration of self, soul, and spirit here in Jerusalem, I have found that the “B” in me was actually a bright, brilliant woman, full of life and dreams of pursuing her education.

I, at 22, with my university degree in hand and a world of incredible opportunities at my fingertips now understand why my father insisted I go straight to college/university from high school. Why education and academic achievement have been paramount in my life at home, and what an indescribable opportunity I have to live out the dreams of my very own grandmother.

Legacy, a beautiful blessing and an intense feeling of responsibility. Because as much as we often like to think that we live simply in the now, strong and stable and oh-so-independently, we all come from a legacy. We all hold within us a personal history that extends far beyond our lifetime.

In my previous post, I wrote about the ideas of paradox in Judaism, of multiple truths in context of recent Palestine-Israel conflict. Perhaps related to this is the Jewish concept of the interwoven nature of blessings and curses. That in every curse there is a blessing, that in all bad there is good, and vice versa.

When it comes to legacies, to burdens of living out the dreams of those who came before us, we all have the opportunity to feel the blessing and the curse, the gratitude and the stress, the beauty of opportunity and the burden of responsibility.

In the end, in the present, it’s our choice. Which way will we live?

Thank you to anyone who is taking the time to read this post, to provide any comments, personal thoughts, or private messages. All feedback is deeply appreciated.

Until Next Time,

The Soul of Jerusalem: A View of Multiple Truths

Wherever you stand,

be the soul of that place.

~ Rumi

But what does it mean to be the soul of a place like Jerusalem? A place where so many people feel most closely connected to their own inner strength and beliefs, and yet stand in direct conflict with one another?

One of the very first lessons I learned in my program of text study at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies was as follows:

When learning Gemara**, there are always at least two truths, and they directly contradict each other.

** Gemara = a body of text of rabbinic debate that accompanies the oral torah/bible and serves as an important source for Jewish law
 

Instead of the western learning ideal of gaining knowledge in search of a single right answer, Jewish learning involves argument; it involves debate. There are various differing opinions and stances and interpretations, and yet simultaneously there exists an intense oneness of belief and faith. It is perhaps one of the most beautiful aspects of Jewish religion and spirituality, and in my opinion a part that is so often overlooked and underrepresented.

     

In a recent edition of Fast Company, Robert Safian proposes that understanding the duality of opposing truths is necessary for entrepreneurs and business leaders to be successful in today’s economic climate. In his article “Secrets of the Flux Leader,” Safian brings to the table Margaret Wheatley’s argument: that we can no longer rely on singularly directed pathways of reasoning rooted in the 17th century ideas of Sir Isaac Newton,

“We now know that cause and effect is not a given in the natural world. Creation comes not from stasis but from unpredictable movement.”

In illustration of her statement, Wheatley, cited again by Safian, points to the example of a double-slit experiment, in which

“An electron behaves like a wave when it is observed in one way and like a particle when it is observed another way. Both views are true

Clearly this example evidences a natural source for the necessity of opposing truths.  The idea that Wheatley identifies and that Safian builds into his theory of leadership for Generation Flux is this need for acceptance of multiple truths in order to succeed and operate in our increasingly complex world.

   

And there it is. A beautiful bridge between the Jewish learning that I am participating in here and the entrepreneurial world that is so deeply a part of who I am becoming.  In order to be a great leader, in order to tackle the unavoidable challenges and complexities to come, one first must understand the basic idea that there are opposing truths, and that even a oneness of belief is composed of many fractions of nuanced disagreement. 

 

But of course, as always seems to happen, this concept has become even more challenging to me in light of the current Israel-Palestine conflict. 

Over the past few weeks, as many of you know,  hundreds of rockets have been launched into Israel, and an Israeli Military Operation including an air raid and sea attack on Gaza has been underway.

Personally, I have struggled with the question of how to react to this situation, both privately and publicly. I know that I need to let family and friends know that I am safe, and that I’m expected to provide some comment on the situation given my evident proximity. But how can I possibly cover everything that I have witnessed, felt, and experienced here in one simple post? 

How can I express my awe at the Israelis who are willing to stand up and fight for the freedom of their fellow citizens to live in peace, the bravery that I see amongst people my age and younger who feel their duty to their people so fiercely that they are willing to risk their own lives the second they are needed?

How do I reconcile this awe and appreciation, with the understanding of how deeply the suffering will be felt by the Palestinian civilians, many of whom are innocent bystanders in a situation that paints them as either crippled victims or radical terrorists, but so rarely as fellow human beings?

How do I come close to describing the sadness I see in the eyes of my friends, when they discuss the deaths on both sides of the border-lines. The deaths of children, of families, of innocent looking for refuge?

How can I ever say anything that comes close to the feeling of hearing that sirenrealizing that I had approximately one minute to get to a shelter: of running with my friends to the nearest building, pulling at locked doors, running to the next and finding refuge in a stairwell as we waited for the inevitable boom, simultaneously assuring our distance and safety and confirming our fears that a rocket had reached its destination somewhere, with no news of whether it had taken the lives of those nearby.

And how do I even begin to imagine how this tiny, insignificant, singular experience of terror must feel for the millions of people living both in the south of Israel and in Gaza, who are under a constant barrage of rockets and missiles from the air. Of parents in southern Israel who hear these sirens hundreds of times, who have  seconds to pull their families into bomb shelters at any given moment? Of parents on both sides who spend their entire day on edge, constantly aware: where are my children, how close are we to a bomb shelter if one even exists? Constantly calculating their next move, their safe move. How can my words do justice to the feelings of a mother less than 50 miles away whose simple daily errand of grocery shopping becomes a strategic calculated risk? Or a mother who prays with her entire being that the humanitarian aid will reach her family, and that her children will make it through one more night?

The answer is simple. I can’t. This is the perfect and terrifying situation that seemingly demonstrates everything I have been learning here so far. There are multiple truths, an endless complexity of factors. When confronting the complexity of the Palestine-Israel conflict there is no single right answer, only a series of conflicting “facts,” opposing truths, and a tremendous amount of suffering on all sides.

So what is there to do, in an impossible situation of conflict and opposition?

It seems the best thing we can do is to engage in full and open perception of the situation, understand how much we simply do not understand, orient ourselves in a direction of peace and of deep gratitude for those who are risking their lives for the sake of this seemingly impossible goal, and take actionable steps of support for those who are suffering. 

 

So here lies my first semblance of an answer to the questions: what is it that I’m doing here in Israel? Why would I ever choose to give up the incredible job opportunities, proximity to entrepreneurial friends I love and admire, and projects I’ve been working on to live here? In Jerusalem? 

Because here, I am learning to understand what it really means to embrace mutlitple truths. To challenge the norm, to challenge your havruta (study partner), to challenge your own very core beliefs with conflicting statements that are both true and untrue and varying degrees of truth all at the same time.

And most importantly, I am learning how to understand these truths in a way that allows me to take a conscious, confident, and self-assured step forward. Because it’s not just about being able to understand the depth of human experience, of communities, of spirituality, of business; it’s about being able to act upon your understanding in the most effective, strategic, and beneficial way.  

          

What does it mean to be the “soul of this place?”

To me, it means to acknowledge just how many souls are deeply connected here, to point towards an attitude of peace and empathy, and to pursue actions in accordance with these values.

          

After my own personal experience of hearing a siren go off, running for safety, and getting a glimpse of the terror that millions go through on a daily, hourly, or continual basis, I feel exceptionally grateful for the community I have here and all over the world that stands in support of peace and justice. A deep and heart-felt thank you to all of you who are keeping those here in this tiny part of the world in your hearts, thoughts, and prayers.

Until next time,

Love Your Limits

And I’m in Jerusalem.

Life is different here. As someone said beautifully in the opening circle of my program, Pardes, I think “I breathe differently here.”  The pure age of the structures around me, the intensely spiritual aura that seems to ebb and flow throughout the city during the times of high holidays, and the love that so many people from numerous backgrounds, religions, and belief systems have for this place – it honestly feels magical at times.

And then at times it doesn’t. Something I’ve realized (or rather something that has slapped me in the face since I’ve been here) is how difficult it is, even is such an incredible setting, to feel present and connected. In moving here I fell into a common trap many of us face (especially those of us in the crazy start-up world) of trying to do too many things at once. For me, this included moving to a new country and to a new apartment with 5 roommates, starting a new learning program involving 20-30 hours of class & a commute, launching the hiring process for my small business, Campus Swaps, starting a new job as the Associate Director at Unreasonable at Sea, working on a personal curriculum involving excel, adobe, & coding, oh and somewhere in here I wanted to write a new blog post……

Even as it seems a bit ridiculous now, what’s really more striking is that this is absolutely common behavior for me and for most of the people I surround myself with. So many of us do this to ourselves; we continuously overburden, overstress, overcomplicate.

So what have I learned during my first month here?

That limitations are important.

That in knowing your own limits and using them to align your time with your most authentic values lies the key to a more meaningful and connected experience of life.

In an incredible book I read once upon a time in a bookstore in NYC, Clayton Christensen writes:

“You can talk all you want about having a strategy for your life, understanding motivation, & balancing aspirations with unanticipated opportunities…But ultimately, this means nothing if you do not align those with where you actually expend your time, money, and energy.”

It is only once we accept that we sometimes cannot do it all, that we have to make hard choices and focus on things that are truly important, that we realize it is this focus itself that allows us to live a life we really love.

3 Steps to Intentional Space

Open space.

Last month while visiting the BOLD Academy out in Boulder, Colorado, I participated in a group activity of Open Space, in which people signed up for sessions of learning, sharing, and discussion. But what I found most intriguing wasn’t the content itself, but the design of the exercise.

The guidelines are as follows:

Whoever shows up are the right people.
Whenever it starts is the right time.
Whatever happens is the only thing that could have happened.
Whenever it’s over it’s over.

And the only rule is the Law of two feet: whenever you feel it is right, you are free to get up, move around, choose wherever it is that you want to be. If you’re not getting or giving, move yourself!
.

This is just one exercise that embodies many of the concepts that I have seen in designed spaces over the past few months. Organizations specializing in this area are growing in number: Bold Academy, StartingBloc, Summit Series, Sandbox, The New American Tavern, The Village, Memento’s Factory 0 , and so many more.

Groups that exist with the intention of creating a space. A space for connection, for open collaboration, for self-discovery through connection to others, and for personal and business growth based on life-long relationships.

They all have different words for it, they design, curate, facilitate; but in the end they’re all talking about the same thing:

Intentional Space.

.

By developing expertise in creating an intentional space, these organizations provide an experience that allows people to be 100% present in the moment, 100% authentic to their core, and to connect with a community of other people looking for the same thing. From the Summit team’s ability to connect high-profile individuals making very visible waves in the world, to StartingBloc’s approach of incubating future innovators just beginning to bring their ideas to action, each organization creates an insanely powerful “wow” experience for members of their community.

.

How do they do this? How do they create such powerful intentional spaces?

.

1. They set intention through values.

What I’ve noticed is that these organizations spend a lot of time curating/designing their own foundation. They don’t just put up company values for the sake of having them, they spend unheard of amounts of time on the minute details of their core values and mission statement.

.

2. They ACTUALLY live their values. They make themselves participants in the space.

These organizations and the people who run them put actions behind their words, both in their business actions and in their individual life choices. They create a degree of openness and consciousness where every employee, every volunteer, every staff member becomes an integral part of the community, a necessary component to the space.

For example, in calling itself a “people incubator,” StartingBloc organizers treat each other and all volunteers with the same degree of respect and consideration that they do each candidate and fellow. Volunteers and mentors are going through a process of learning just as valuable and life-changing as candidates themselves. The leaders of the organization understand that if you are going to create a space for others to connect authentically, you have to set the tone through your own actions first.

.

3. They’re in it for the long haul. They follow up, turn interactions to relationships.

These organizations all have an incredible talent for emphasizing the need for accountability and the supportive nature of relationships as opposed to surface level, routine interactions that provide little value and large amounts of stress.

Instead of feeling like you “have to keep in touch,” as a member of these communities you follow up with other members through shared experience that can be either social or business.

You start ventures together, become partners, go out for coffee or drinks, meetup in cities across the world. You create lasting, learning relationships that help you grow upwards instead of tying you down with obligation.

Perhaps the most powerful benefit of all, these groups design circumstances that facilitate taking the intention of the event into relationships and interactions far beyond.

.

It is because of these intentional spaces (and the wonderful organizations that created them) that I have learned the value of adding a higher degree of intention and mindful design to my own life, and I look forward to learning more and more about these communities as they grow and develop.

Please post a comment or message me about any other examples of intentional spaces that you know and love!

.

Until next time,

10 Lessons Learned & Shared

One week ago, I have had the insanely amazing experience of volunteering at the StartingBloc Institute for Social Innovation in Boston. StartingBloc is a self-described “people incubator,” that builds skills and relationships amongst young innovators who value social impact. After becoming an LA ’12 fellow back in February I decided that Memorial Day weekend would be the perfect opportunity for me to tap back into some StartingBloc inspiration, clarity of purpose, and connection.

A significant contributor to our connectedness at StartingBloc is our mutual learning and sharing over the course of the institute. So here is my list of the 10 best lessons learned and shared amongst a group of exceptionally connected people.

1. We are all grasping for guidance.

Whether we are recent graduates venturing into the unfamiliar “real world,” or many years wiser and exploring the ideas and actions that really make us tick, we are all constantly looking for answers, for solutions, for meaning. And it’s difficult, because there is “no road map to our lives”, no clear direction we can follow (Rachel Weeks, see below). The best we can do is embrace the ambiguity, open ourselves to a constant state of curiosity and learning, and trust in our ability to navigate.

2. Place yourself in a “intellectual powerhouse environment.”

This is exactly the environment that exists at StartingBloc, and one that we all hope to maintain as we return to our homes and work places. An environment where creativity is mandatory, hustle is key,  ideas are welcomed with no fear of character judgement, and collaboration is inspired by  a constant “Yes, and” attitude. By surrounding ourselves with others who value open and creative intellectual exploration, we can build the perfect setting to create impact.

3. You already know everything you need to know to start.

Impostor syndrome is experienced by all of us at some point in our lives. You will never know as much as you “should” know, you will never be prepared enough. Jump in anyway. Start now.

4. First, do no harm.

I know I just said to jump in anyway, but the one caveat to this is that if you’re about to jump, you have to remember that context is everything. Every action that you take in this world impacts another being, and it is absolutely essential that we are in the a mindset of awareness before we take action. This doesn’t mean having all of the answers, it simply means realizing that we don’t. Be mindful and intentional, especially when your plans are big and the stakes are high. Identify your assumptions going in, and be flexible to incorporate the new learning points as you move forward.

5. “Sunlight is the best disinfectant.”  

– Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis reiterated by Scott Sherman

I find this equally relevant to broader issues in society and to our own personal lives: shine a light on the areas that need disinfecting. Bring them to attention. Embrace the faults and open yourself to change. As a good friend at Summit Series, Achille Tako, once shared with me, it is our faults that make us human after all. Bring them to light.

6. Radical honesty can be an incredible tool.

With yourself and with others. Being able to honestly separate the ideas from the person, from the identity, allows for unimaginable growth and forward thinking. However, radical honesty must be approached with benevolent intention, and deep-set respect for all parties.

7. Ask WHY, get to the heart, and embrace the “we.” 

A concept put into practice at StartingBloc with the guidance of Scott Sherman & Mitchell Wade

It is so easy to fall into the “us” versus “them” mentality. In negotiation, in the workplace, in the home, in friendships, in cultural exchange. We focus so strongly on creating our own foundation, on solidifying our argument, our pitch. Those of us in the business world have been trained to do so, however we are untrained in how to use the pitch effectively. It isn’t always about presenting your point right of the bat. It’s about starting with questions and finding out who your audience is, seeking out their “why”, and then transforming your pitch to embrace a collaborative movement forward.  Too often we forget the importance of holding back our opinions, our pitches, and opening our eyes and ears to the multitude of truths and lessons available to us.

8. No Job Too Big, No Job Too Small.

(first heard from David Denberg @ Summit Series)

Sometimes in life we will be flying high in the air, in a first-class arrangement of circumstance whereas other times we will be sweeping the floors and cleaning up messes. Our work will not always be glamorous. But if it  leads to the change we want to create and provides benefit to others, to humanity as a whole, it is worthwhile.

9. FEAR is your fuel. Use it wisely.

FEAR can either be Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rejoice. It’s your choice. Far too often we focus on eliminating our fears, eradicating them from our lives. As if that is possible. The reality is that our fears often reveal what is truly important to us. As Ted Gonder so powerfully presented, “Fear can also be a compass that points true north.”  Those of us who fear being unnoticed often strive for attention. Those of us who fear being alone often yearn for connection and relationships. By using the concepts of Aikido, and redirecting the energy of our fears, we can channel them to help us grow.  If we stop trying to eliminate fear, and instead use it to reveal what it is that we love and value, it can become an incredible  source of energy and direction.

10. “How you spend your days is, of course, how you spend your life.” – Annie Dillard

My personal “life tagline,” this quote is constantly reinforced by my fellow StartingBloc-ers. The Boston ’12 speaker Rachel Weeks frames it as “You’ve got to love the journey as much as the success point.” The way I see it, the destination cannot be the sole determinant of your success; you can’t just plan to retire or celebrate at the end. Especially if the most important change actually happens after you leave, it seems quite ridiculous to celebrate an “end” or “success point”. Instead you have to love the journey, celebrate each step towards lasting change, and derive fulfillment and satisfaction from how you spend your time.

A HUGE and heart felt thank you to my tribe at StartingBloc for providing this connetion, for inspiring me to grow and to be, and for weaving me into the beautiful lives that you lead.

Until next time,

Shira Bee

Our Biggest Fear is not that we are inadequate. Our biggest fear is being powerful beyond measure.
