What have I done?

 Time flies.  As I contemplate my next professional life, encore career, anything but retirement, I often question myself.  What have I done (really)?  I managed to earn a living, which isn't nothing.  I found ways to keep learning and encouraged others to learn. Those were consistent primary motivations:  Earn and Learn.

Today I asked ChatGPT what it knew about me.  Sounds a little narcissistic?  Well, let's just say I wanted a sense of my digital footprint and while I wasn't expecting too much, it turns out that ChatGPT easily digs out details very few people have ever read, including things I posted online just a couple of days ago.  So here it is, introducing myself via ChatGPT's words, most of which cited my own words anyways coming from this Insight Mapping blog.  

The following professional profile is the result of a sequence of prompts.  The first two prompts were gathering background information.  The third prompt was putting it all into a professional profile.  The last prompt was meant to add a component (Insight Mapping), which was missing and I wanted to incorporate.
