May News Bulletin
Dearest Friends,

After months of planning, working, stressing, and rehearsing, we brought our case for COVID-19 relief before the U.S. Supreme Courtthe highest rule of law that exists in our land. We argued knowing that the eyes of a nation weighed upon us and that we fought for a judgment that must serve to safeguard our communities' legal protections in generations to come. This was a tremendously important moment for ANVCA and our members, as together we faced a kind of raison d'êtrea challenge for us to define ourselves not by our profit margins, but by our solemn promise to serve and represent our communities.

Let us again thank the many individual players who contributed to our argument. Whether by providing advice and strategic counsel, donating funds and resources, or even sharing the words and stories delivered from the mouths of shareholdersthe lived experiences of our people, none too small nor humbleit is thanks to your shared resolution to fight on that our own tenacity was reforged.

Below, we cover the news outlets and articles that reported on the hearing's progress. While remarks expressed by justices during a proceeding trial cannot be taken as a binding oath to vote in alignment with early commentary, we were nevertheless encouraged to hear the sympathy for our argument that was expressed by the majority of Justices. And now...court is adjourned. Until, we expect, late Junewe wait.

But we need not wait idly. Though the cancellation of cruise ships to Alaska has thrown our tour industry into a tailspin, the Governor's office has recently issued a slew of proposals and initiatives designed to support Alaska's tour industry and local businesses. As vaccination rates climb doggedly upward (led, by the way, by Alaska's rural communities), more and more businesses are reopening. We also strongly recommend that members review the freshly updated list of employment opportunitiesin particular, there are a number of sterling fellowships available to our youth.

We hope that our members are staying engaged, staying active, and staying healthy.

Tsin'aen (Chin'an/Thank You),

Hallie Bissett
ANVCA Executive Director

How to Get Unstuck and Grow Your Business
Article by Christian Muntean, shared with author's permission. Find more of Mr. Muntean's work at his company website.

William felt tired as he drove home. His business was successful. His family was comfortable. He had the respect of others. But he could never quite get to the next level. To be honest, he wasn’t sure what the “next level” looked like. But it seemed that, with all the effort and time and resources put into his company, things should be easier. For example, why was it so hard for him to get away and take a long vacation? Why was he still mediating arguments between employees? Why was he dealing with customer complaints?

William always felt inspired by leaders who seemed relaxed and happy. Ones who seemed to spend their time building new projects or investing in their employees or contributing to the community. Why did it feel like if he took his hand off the wheel, even for a few days, everything would start to drift apart?

A moment of clarity. William realized that’s what the issue was…he was always so involved in holding things together. He didn’t feel like he had the time or energy to move them forward. He felt stuck. Plateaued. Putting in the effort but not seeing progress.

Why We Plateau

I’ve always been involved in athletics. For twelve years, I was also a strength and conditioning instructor. As every athlete knows – plateaus are frustrating. Good athletes know how to break them. Plateaus come from the body’s natural drive towards homeostasis. Our bodies and our brains are wired to work as efficiently as possible. Whatever condition your body gets in – generally after a month or two in that condition – your body and brain tend to make that the “norm”. The norm becomes what is comfortable. It’s easy to maintain that level of effort and work…and results. We feel uncomfortable if we regress. But it’s also uncomfortable to progress. So, we maintain. We plateau.

Plateaus and Thermostats

Psychologically, we each have a “success thermostat.” This thermostat is primarily set through messages received from our families growing up. It is reinforced by experiences we have in life. Following that, it is set by the messages we pay the most attention to.

Let’s say you own a business. Year after year, you find your discretionary earnings staying right around $100,000. Sometimes a little higher. Sometimes a little lower. When you reflect on this, you might realize that a six-figure income was always referred to as financial “success” growing up. You believe that successful people earn $100,000 a year. That is locked into your head. Less than $100,000 feels like failing. If you dip below, you heat things up and get your numbers back.

But more than $100,000 feels like “too much.” If you go over, you cool off. You dial back your efforts. Many people find that there is a pattern to this. There is about 15% wiggle room either way – if you go too far below or above, the thermostat kicks in and brings you back. It’s hard to change.

The financial metric is easy to describe. But this applies to other areas as well: Who we see as peers. The size of the contracts we pursue. The number of staff or programs we oversee. The goals we set. The problems we believe we can solve.

We find comfort at one level. And don’t do the different kinds of things required to get to the next level.

The Four Changes You Need to Make to Get the Change You Want

This next statement is forehead-slappingly obvious: If you want different results – do something different. Nevertheless, many people insist on doing the same thing but hope for different results. If you make the following four changes – you will break through your plateau. They aren’t a mystery. They just take doing:

1. Change your goals: If your previous way of goal setting hasn’t created the results you want – change the kinds of goals you set. Most likely your goals are too small or just more of “the same”. Your goals should be big or different enough that it takes a completely different kind of approach and thinking to accomplish them.

2. Change your actions: Your normal routines have produced the success you have. But not the success you want. What needs to change? For many leaders, it’s these three shifts:

  • Clarity: Getting crystal clear on your priorities and the specific steps to accomplishing them.

  • Prioritize your time: Block your most productive time to focus on the action that will move your organization forward. Don’t let anything steal this time.

  • Stop needing to be needed: Call a halt to solving problems. Create solutions so problems don’t reoccur. Build systems and a team that allow your organization to solve problems for you.

3. Change your influences: Change who you spend time with, what you read and listen to. Immerse yourself in “next level” thinking. Spend time with people who are where you want to be. Read and listen to thinkers who describe what you want to get to. Allow this mental and relational marination to change your vision and self-image.

4. Change or create accountability: Get someone in your life that you are accountable to. Someone you respect. Someone you don’t want to disappoint. Tell them your goals and your plans. Give them permission to call you out. It could be a peer, a mentor or a coach. You need someone.

What Changes Will You Make?

These four changes drive different, better results. Do you want different results? If so, what specific changes will you make?
Breaking: Murkowski and Russell Dick Testify on Native Tourism Economies
This week, Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Vice Chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, underscored the importance of tourism to Alaska Native communities and the entire Alaskan economy at a hearing, “Examining the COVID-19 Response in Native Communities: Native Tourism Economies One Year Later.”

“Native Tourism touches on so many extraordinary aspects of Indian Country and our Alaska Native communities, of Native Hawaiians: vibrant cultures and languages, economic empowerment, resiliency, and the opportunity to share Native history and traditions and perpetuate native culture for future generations,” Murkowski said. “In Alaska, we know firsthand the importance of tourism to our state’s economy. In 2020 alone, the cancellation of the cruise ship season has caused an estimated revenue loss of over $90 million to the State, $98 million to local governments, and over $1 billion in lost revenue for local businesses.”

Vice Chairman Murkowski reiterated the effort she has made to alleviate the Passenger Vessel Services Act (PVSA) restriction that prevents cruise ships from transporting passengers between Washington State and Alaska. She welcomed testimony from Mr. Russell Dick, the President and CEO of Huna Totem Corporation, a Native Village Corporation formed under the terms of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA). His testimony spoke directly to the impact of a federal law like PVSA, which limits Huna Totem’s ability to provide for jobs and the economy for a small Native community such as Hoonah, as well as the broader opportunities to the Native people in the region.

April: Political News
APRIL 2: Alaska joined an amicus brief in Duncan v. Rodriguez, a case challenging a California law banning magazines with a capacity of 10 or more rounds. California’s law criminalizes possession of arms commonly used by millions of law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes, even when used in the home for self-defense. Therefore, the law strikes at the core of the Second Amendment. Alaska and the other Amici states urge the 9th Circuit to affirm the trial court’s decision that the California law banning magazines that carry more than ten rounds of ammunition violates the Second Amendment. See the report from the newsroom for more.
