“Today’s person spends way more time in front of screens. . .being on one end of the other of an electronic data transfer. . .What is it to be human and alive and exercise your humanity in that kind of exchange?”

– David Foster Wallace

Front-ends and back-ends: Where’s that leave you?

Though in no way over, the pandemic is on it’s way out. . .or at least being requalified as endemic.

We had a harrowing front-end, shifting our lives in unimaginable ways, and now a slow and seemingly angry-ex breakup on the back-end.

No doubt we’ve all been through a lot, so much that even the mention of it in this newsletter is getting old.

But, as we move on, I’m personally REALLY INTERESTED in how the front- and back-ends have changed YOU as a subscriber to our newsletter. . .because speaking to what’s real NOW for each of us is where I’d like our dialogue and support to go.

Will you take literally 1 minute or less to answer 6 short questions. . .and a 7th if you’d like to be entered for a $25 Amazon gift card?

Thank you for your input and we look forward to wrapping up our back-end together with the insights and wisdom you’ll share with us for going forward.

Think differently, play better.

“For better or for worse, I’ve watched people die in front of me. I see how they are in the end. And they’re not cynical. In the end, they wanna hold somebody’s hand. And that’s real to me.”

– Mitch Albom
