You Only Live Twice
“You only live twice: Once when you are born and once when you look death in the face”
-- Ian Fleming
This was Ian Fleming's last James Bond book, written after he found out he was terminally ill. In 2020 I almost died. In the midst of my fear and depression two things were on my mind. I have lived such a full life, but I have shared so little of it. And I have so much more to do before I leave.
In my first life I have been privileged to work with some of the world's leading companies like GE, DuPont, Nikon, Cisco, Microsoft and Salesforce. I have taught at leading universities like Penn State and Arizona State. My consulting work has taken me to Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. And I have skied Pallivicini top to bottom without stopping.
But my passion has always been teaching. Now, in my second life, I have decided to share my experience and expertise in this online environment with a YouTube channel and these online courses. To be honest, this is the most satisfying work I have ever done. And I still ski Pallivicini, but I need to stop for a couple of hits of oxygen on the way down.
