What's a dossier? 

I'm a curious guy and I'm probably most curious about myself. Which is probably why I tend to do a lot of self exploration and documentation.

This is a personal dossier (or collections of documents on a particular person) about myself. It's ever changing and is full of experimental ideas which is why its a bit of mess.  

I's true that I don't quite know who I am, how life works or what I'm doing here I do know that understanding myself and sharing that understanding with other bring clarity, connection and hopefully positive change. 

As this whole site is more for my benefit then for your's you can expect to find these notes criptica at best and illegible at worst. Use them to better understand how I see the world, to find faults in my syllogismes or to learn how to scam me. 

 
 

I tried. I really tried to make a once stence zinger of a mission statement but I couldn't. Sorry Steven Covey. 

This culturally collective set of concepts guide my feeling which influence my thoughts which result in my actions. While I am constantly surprised about the amount of cognitive dissidence I can exhibit these concepts still are part of who I am now and guide the way I engage with life.

Service To Others

When I serve myself I serve others as there is a part of me in them and a part of them in me.

If I foucses on Serving other I will do well.

Simplicity 

Simple is better than complex most times. However when somthing in esence is complex besing reductionistic is not wise.

Better By Sunset

The world should be a little better by the time I go to bed  because I was in the world today.  The world  should be better by the time I dye because I was here.

Probably stems from a desire to prove my value to the world so that I will be accepted and afirmed.  

This Very Moment 

This very moment is more important than the last of the next. 

In this very moment I have enough. In this very moment i am alright. In this very moment I can do good. 

Everyday life is the way of Buddha. The way of buddha is everydat life.

Truth Is Worth Seeking 

There are qualitative truths and quantitative truths. Both are true but sometimes contradict.

Systems 

Well designed systems is the highest form of art.

Good Enough

Pareto Principle states that 20% of work tends to account for 80% of results. While not always wise following this principle of diminishing returns and letting something be 'good enough' even though I want it to be better leads me to live a more effective life. 

I find that this principle also helps me overcome the fear of change by interaly saying "what the hell lets try it" and then get moving.

Stewardship

I own nothing but am a steward of others things, talent, and idea.

Definitely a leftover from my days as a Baptists.

Building Websites

As an owner of the Orange Cube Group I get to help businesses grow and tell stories by creating websites. Businesses hire me to update or create a website for them.

Web Developers are a dime a dozen. When clients work with me they can expect to build their website in one, hardcore day with a team of experts that are not afraid to use prosumer tools. 


google Marketing 

I have been using Google to grow businesses since I was in high school. Not only do I teach Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Local Listing tactics to other online marketing organizations, I get to manage some solid AdWords campaigns for clients all over the world.

Operations Coaching

There are few thing more beautiful than a well-built and updated system. I find so much joy in helping others create, and more importantly implement, systems that leverage both people and technology.

It's been a great gift to take this joy of mine and get paid by some businesses to review their business top-to-bottom, not only making recommendations that will help them make a bigger difference in the world but stay with them throughout the implementation process.

Spencer's Seven Dutys 

While I have written more expensive on this topic other places here is a quick overview of the duties that I believe I hold to areas of life. These duty shape the way I live my days and thus the way I live my life. 

 
  • Ontological Duty: Repair the broken parts of the world. 
  • My Social Duty: Recognize the basic goodness in people and build communties to enable growth, enjoyment, and change. 
  • Professional Duty: Enable change as a fiduciary advisor by maximizing peoples strengths. 
  • Physical Duty: My body is a beautiful tool that needs maintenance but is not a living sculpture. 
  • Mental Duty: Live awakened, be open to change, calange the Status Quo, Reconise and optimize systems
  • Familiar Duty: Expand family beyond biology limits and practice mutual sacrifice.   
  • Spiritual Duty: Internalize that the left brain knows thing the right brain does not. 

Yes yes I know this type of list is reductionistic but that's not going to stop me from listing some preferences.
