As we continue the series on discernment, we consider how we walk discernment out in areas of ambiguity by holding a posture of curiosity that asks God "What are You up to in this moment?", waiting to hear His answer, and responding to guidance in trust and obedience.

Without a clear proposition, any business will struggle to attract the right type of customers consistently. Their salespeople will stumble and their marketing will fall flat. "So few companies have a clear proposition," says Kieron Bain co-founder of #Sold, "they confuse potential buyers and leave a fortune on the table". Ambiguity in your proposition will drive good customers into the arms of your competition and attract the wrong type of customers. You know what the costs and pain of taking on the wrong customers, so stop, take moment and ask yourself, "What do my customers think I do for them?" Is that what you want to do for them? Could you be doing more? Are you playing to your strengths or taking what's given to you? Kieron and I have a lively conversation about your message, how to make it tight and precise so it fascinates your idea buyers.

Oren Zaslansky and Joe Lynch discuss more VUCA ahead. Oren is the Founder and CEO of Flock Freight, a Certified B Corporation that's been reinventing freight shipping since 2015. About Oren Zaslansky Raised by parents who worked for a van line and later started their own freight forwarders, Oren has deep-seated roots in logistics and entrepreneurship. At 21, he founded a 125-truck fleet that provided white-glove freight service throughout the U.S. and Canada. His subsequent venture, SolSource Logistics, continues to operate today, with Oren serving as chairman. SolSource Logistics opened Oren's eyes to how wasteful traditional freight shipping is. He became determined to find a new approach by building a technology-driven solution. Flock Freight (formerly AuptiX) opened its doors in 2015, driven by Oren's vision of using technology to combine multiple shipments into one multi-stop shared truckload. Under Oren's leadership, Flock Freight continu es to rapidly grow while creating a new standard of service for shippers, increasing revenue for carriers, and eliminating the impact of carbon emissions through the patented shared truckload solution, FlockDirect™. About Flock Freight Flock Freight is a Certified B Corporation that's been reinventing freight shipping since 2015. Flock Freight leverages its advanced, first-to-market algorithms that pool shipments and fill trucks at scale to create a new standard of service for shippers and increase revenue for carriers. Flock Freight's shared truckload solution eliminates the need for terminals and is the only carbon-neutral shipping option with all emissions accounted for through carbon offsets supporting freight-related efficiency projects. Flock Freight is headquartered in Encinitas, CA with an additional office in Chicago, IL. Key Takeaways: More VUCA Ahead Oren Zaslansky is the Founder and CEO of Flock Freight, where he and his team are driving industry change and powering shared truckload service with top-tier talent and advanced algorithms. In the podcast interview, Oren and Joe discuss more VUCA ahead. VUCA stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. The more VUCA ahead refers to continued supply chain disruptions caused by: Diesel fuel shortages Potential railroad strike Potential strike or labor slowdown for West coast ports Holiday season Uncertain economic conditions - recession Issues with China supply chain Ukraine/Russia supply chain problem (grain, fuel, etc..) Flock Freight provides an alternative to less-than-truckload shipping, which has traditionally been expensive, slow, and more likely to damage freight compared to truckload shipping. Shippers and 3PLs have always converted some number of LTL shipments to multi-stop or shared truckload shipments, but the approach was scattershot, and process was very manual. As investments in freight tech grew, the number of multi-stop shipments increased, however there were no purpose-built tech or companies dedicated to multi-stop truckload shipments until Flock Freight. For Shippers: Flock Freight moves shipper freight via shared truckload, combining it with other freight into one multi-stop truckload. Flock Freight gives midsize freight shippers an efficient, cost-effective way to move their goods. For Carriers: Flock Freight helps carriers maximize their revenue by booking high-paying shared truckloads online in seconds. Carriers earn higher profits for the same amount of work by combining multiple shipments moving in the same direction to minimize half-empty trucks and deadhead miles. Most trucks are moving with trailers that are only partially full – Flock Freight can help them earn more revenue by filling up their truck with good paying freight. For the Environment: Flock Freight shipments move via shared truckload, skipping the inefficient LTL hub and spoke system and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by up to 40%. Flock takes the remaining 60% and offset it by supporting projects with Carbonfund.org, making Flock Freight the only carbon neutral shipping option available to shippers at no extra cost. Flock Freight is a B Corp, which means they meet the highest standards of verified levels of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.

Mis·com·mu·ni·ca·tion : /ˌmiskəˌmyo͞onəˈkāSHən/Because of a communication gap, you and others may rush, feel worried, overworked, and lose your sense of humor. Lack of or inappropriate communication produces worry and stress, both of which are detrimental to one's mental health.When a communication is not fully conveyed, the sender leaves out important information, or the receiver fails to ask clarifying questions, vagueness and ambiguity ensue. Ambiguity and vagueness increase the complexity of a task while decreasing one's capacity to make decisions and solve difficulties.In this episode, Alan and I will dig into an interesting discussion about communication and miscommunication.

Problems can pester, persist and plague. They range from short-lived to chronic, bothersome to heart-wrenching, resolvable to unalterable. Problems cause what Jungian analyst and author James Hollis refers to as the three As: ambiguity, ambivalence, and anxiety. Ambiguity arises when a problem is complex and confusing, demanding action without certainty. Ambivalence is a state of conflicted feelings, often related to immediate versus long-term gratification. Anxiety is worry and doubt about whether we can meet a challenge or achieve a desired outcome. Problems confront us with a basic choice: action or avoidance—but action without analysis can also be a form of avoidance. We must accept the situation, tolerate the tension, and observe external and internal factors before identifying options. Jung says, “The most intense conflicts if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed. It is just these intense conflicts and their conflagration which are needed to produce valuable and lasting results.” Here's the dream we analyzed: “I was pregnant, and I went to a cafe with my husband. I went away and had my baby. I went to a party where some family and friends were welcoming the baby. I cradled a small plastic box with a transparent plastic lid. There were about six spaces pressed into the foam of the box and my baby, which was a tiny bee, was in the right bottom corner of the case. As the party was ending, family members encouraged me to let the bee out of the case. My husband said to do what I thought was right. I opened the case, and we left the party hall, the bee flying above us. When we got outside, it flew away. I ran to keep up with it, and it flew to a huge wooden and plexiglass hive on the lawn. My baby bee flew to a bigger bee, circled it, and was imitating it, even getting onto the big bee's back while it flew. I wanted to catch my bee but was intimidated by the bigger bee. They flew off in a swarm with others. My husband told me it was time to go. I walked away, and we drove away with my in-laws. When we were alone again, I couldn't stop crying. My husband took me to the same cafe, but I could hardly walk because I was crying so much. The server said I looked good for just having had a baby. I went to the bathroom, sobbing and feeling very swollen all over. I looked at my puffy face in the mirror and felt like I looked new.” REFERENCES: Edwards Deming: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._Edwards_Deming Video: It's Not About the Nail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4EDhdAHrOg GIVE US A HAND!

Australia is rushing towards a filmmaking crisis due to the paucity of locally-produced shows on which up-and-coming writers, directors and other key creatives can develop their skills. So says acclaimed producer Tony Ayres, whose hit shows include Glitch, Stateless, The Slap, Barracuda, Seven Types of Ambiguity and Clickbait.

As you might know, English isn't like how we find it in textbooks. In day-to-day conversations, we often don't speak in full sentences, and so much of what we say is implied (this means, it's hinted at without actually saying it).In this episode, I look at some examples of implied meaning or 'language ambiguity' and teach some phrases you can use in different situations.Show notes page - https://levelupenglish.school/podcast185Sign Up for Free Lessons - https://www.levelupenglish.school/#freelessonsJoin Level Up English - https://courses.levelupenglish.schoolBy becoming a member, you can access all podcast transcripts, listen to the private podcast and join live lessons and courses on the website.

Have you ever struggled with expectations? Expectations can be burdensome and it can lead to a lot of disappointment when the desired outcome is not being met. We don't have control of the desired outcome but we can focus on the things we can control, like showing up, putting in the effort and be consistent. Eventually consistency will get you to your purpose or desires. In this episode, my guest, Debora Smiles talks about expectations, the uncertainty that comes with it and how best to navigated those spaces. Debora loves to make an impact. Her purpose is to make an impact, through her words, written and spoken to do just that. She's self-published on Amazon two motivational books (Love Every Black, My Silence is Killing Me) and is working on her third book at the moment.

You need to take ownership of your future to let it not be so uncertain, so that you can look at your now and see your future.” Debora “The future that you want has to be from what you do, what you decide to do. If you do nothing then the future will hold nothing, if you do something in your today, then the future will hold abundance The choice is up to you”. Debora “I have given you the body, I gave you the mind, the intellect, I gave everything to you. Now, you are waiting and sitting on me to dictate your future”. Debora “Don't have any expectations because having expectations puts a burden on your purpose” Debora “Consistency trump's expectations because you can have expectations and not have fulfillment, but if you stay consistent, you'll reach your goal or purpose eventually.” Debora “Having too much expectations causes you to rush things”.

We're used to being in situations in our native language where we can understand almost everything perfectly. To go from that to suddenly being bombarded with words, phrases and grammatical contractions that are totally alien and incomprehensible to us can be quite jarring. Yet studies have shown that having higher tolerance thresholds for ambiguity can be a decisive factor in language learning success. So on today's podcast, I invited two friends, Karl and Jorge, to discuss how they've learned to cope with not understanding and how we can all Chinese learners can develop our tolerance of ambiguity to make our the process of acquiring Chinese smoother and quicker.
Possible objections notwithstanding, the Canadian Justice Department has recommended that "notwithstanding" be replaced in legal writing. But why? The answer takes us deep into some pretty nerdy weeds.
In this episode, David talks about what it takes to be a leader in a world that is far more Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) than it was, in the past. He starts by using examples of how VUCA has impacted our lives in recent years.There are a lot of risks to manage, which sounds bad, but actually represents an opportunity. In the episode, David explains how to prepare yourself to take advantage of it. KEY TAKEAWAYS VUCA stands for Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. The way the supply chain was stretched after the pandemic is an example of how things can suddenly become far more complex. Ambiguity arises from having an incomplete picture, something that is quite common these days. Those that have the confidence not to retreat in a more rapidly changing world will stand out positively. We need to build wriggle room into our plans. Ask yourself what you can do to ensure your teams are in a state of preparedness. Being ready to evolve and adapt. Tap into the insights your team have. Communication is even more vital in a VUCA world. BEST MOMENTS ‘When looking at the future, it´s hard not to imagine a world where volatility, uncertainty and change really will be a constant feature,' ‘There are some questions you ask as part of a kind of risk assessment so you can harness the idea behind VUCA.' ‘We can up the visibility when it comes to vision and strategy.' ‘Pursue empowered delegation' ABOUT THE SHOW People with purpose make a difference. Imagine a world where more people can just get their purpose out of them, into a plan and then actually make it happen. What a world that would be - People everywhere finding meaning and harnessing that to bring inspiration and energy to each and every day, changing lives for the better. But no one ever achieved anything on their own - we all have something unique to bring and that means we all have to play our part - if we want to go far, we have to go together and lead or serve towards a vision of the world we want to see. Everyone has a story to tell, and this show is where these stories come to life. ABOUT THE HOST David Roberts is a highly regarded CEO, mentor, and investor with 30 years of experience across multiple sectors.

Recommend this show by sharing the link: pod.link/2Pages I'm writing a new book that's due for release in the middle of 2023, and I was just sitting at a coffee shop reading my editor's response to the first draft. She's been reviewing it for about three weeks, and those three weeks have been nerve wracking. I've released something into the world but not yet grasped what's next. Anything is possible right now. In other words, I'm sitting with the ambiguity of it all and trying not to freak out. You know how sometimes products just seem perfect for the task at hand?

Can our digitally mediated environment be spiritual? Nick Ripatrazone takes us through the lens of the Canadian philosopher Marshall McLuhan, focusing on his not well-known Catholic faith. McLuhan himself describes his testimony into the Church as, "I came in on my knees. That is the only way in." We discuss the topics around inter-textuality, the complexity of life, on form/function within mediums like poetry, concept/percept, ambiguity and paradox, and McLuhan's famous phrase "the medium is the message".

In this week's episode of SoundNotes, LeadingAgile Senior Consultant, Matthew Oatts joins me to talk about what to do when you are placed in a leadership role, but not given a lot of clarity on what you are specifically supposed to do or how you are supposed to do it. How do you lead people when you don't have clear boundaries or you don't have clarity on what your leadership is looking for. Oftentimes, this guidance is lacking because the people you report to don't actually know and are just waiting for you to figure it out. How can you be successful in your role when success is not clearly defined for you? If you've ever found yourself in that situation, Matthew Oatts and I talk through different ways to respond when you find yourself in this situation.

What I learned from reading The Adventures of Herbie Cohen: World's Greatest Negotiator by Rich Cohen.[1:20] The Fish That Ate the Whale: The Life and Times of America's Banana King by Rich Cohen (Founders #255)[2:42] You Can Negotiate Anything: How to Get What You Want by Herb Cohen.[3:57] Even our heroes falter.[6:01] Once you see your life as a game, and the things you strive for as no more than pieces in that game, you'll become a much more effective player.[7:20] He was proving what would become a lifelong principle: Most people are schmucks and will obey any type of authority.[7:34] Power is based on perception; if you think you got it, you got it, even if you don't got it.[7:54] Nolan Bushnell to a young Steve Jobs: “I taught him that if you act like you can do something, then it will work. I told him, ‘Pretend to be completely in control and people will assume that you are.” from Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography by Walter Isaacson. (Founders #214)[10:30] Life is a game and to win you must consider other people as players with as much at stake as yourself. If you understand their motivations, you can control the action and free yourself from every variety of jam. Focus less on yourself and more on others. Everyone has something at stake. If you address that predicament you can move anyone from no to yes.[14:01] Those who can live with ambiguity and still function do the best.[14:21] Ambiguity is the constant companion of the entrepreneur.[15:26] Don't bitch. Don't complain. Just play the cards that you've been dealt.[20:12] Most people try to blend in. Herbie went the other way. When they zig, I zag.[21:49] It meant Sharon had failed to understand an essential part of an ancient code. If you have a problem with your brother, you deal with it inside the family. Don't rat. Don't turn your brother in to the cops. It was another one of his big lessons. Loyalty. Without that you have nothing.[27:03] Man's Search For Meaning by Viktor Frankl[30:11] When it comes to negotiating you'd be better off acting like you know less, not more.[32:18] How Brands Grow: What Marketers Don't Know by Byron Sharp[35:56] He believed it was good, possibly very good, and it was this belief, which never wavered, that would give him the confidence to persist despite the rejections that were coming.Quoting Harry Truman, he'd say, "I make a decision once."And he'd made his decision about the book. In case of rejection, the only thing that would change was his opinion of the publishing house.[37:01] It took 18 no's to get to a yes.[37:37] Herbie sells his book by hand. This part is incredible.[40:36] Back in Bensonhurst we were seeing my father as he'd been before he was our father. As he was still deep down when we weren't looking.[43:50] I told him I did not want something to fall back on because people who have something to fall back on usually end up "falling back on it.[47:34] You can always understand the son by the story of his father. The story of the father is embedded in the son. —Francis Ford Coppola: A Filmmaker's Life by Michael Schumacher (Founders #242)That was the last time I saw him. His brave cheerfulness chokes me every time I recall the scene. It is impossible to imagine my father's emotions as he waved goodbye knowing that he might be on his way to London to die. Sixty years have not softened these memories, nor the sadness that he missed enjoying his three children growing up.I felt the devastating loss of my dad, his love, his humor, and the things he taught me. I feared for a future without him.— Invention: A Life by James Dyson (Founders #205)[52:48] Even our heroes falter.—“I have listened to every episode released and look forward to every episode that comes out. The only criticism I would have is that after each podcast I usually want to buy the book because I am interested so my poor wallet suffers. ”— GarethBe like Gareth.

Andrea Small is a design leader, strategist, educator, and former Stanford University d.school teaching fellow. We discuss her book Navigating Ambiguity. Creating Opportunity in a World of Unknowns. The timing is perfect for this book — as many of us personally, professionally and in the world at large are dealing with unknowns. She shares the differences between ambiguity and uncertainty…and how we can embrace the discomfort of the unknown to create new, innovative, and creative possibilities. She invites us to lean into ‘not knowing', to be more open to being surprised. The inside cover of the book says it perfectly ‘ The book shows you how to surrender control by being adaptable, curious, and unbiased as well as resourceful, tenacious, and courageous. This book has a lot to teach us beyond its original intention for design and education. These ideas and concepts can be applied to various challenges as we go through our lives.
