Notes from Steve

A leader said to me yesterday “why are we so tired all the time?” I think back on when I ran a restaurant. It exhausted me, and reflecting back and stepping back, I saw the errors of my way. My goal was to have a successful restaurant, but I abdicated...

Notes from Steve

Notes from Steve

I grew up in Sioux City. Sioux City is at the bend in the Missouri river and for the life of me when I grew up I had no clue on directions … north, south, east, west, I had no clue. The whole town felt very diagonal to me. Now,...
