My writing received a breathtaking boost on every level. Knowing, which includes anticipating, when to get out of your comfort zone makes you a better leader – a better writer.

Not allowing my seven-plus year daily blogging streak to end, i found creative ways to blog daily.

It’s in the shipping that fear is conquered and confidence is grown.

This is a message that is painfully obvious and simple, but insanely challenging to embrace for a lifetime.

Mantras can serve as medicine

Without Limits movie scene

 

Without Limits movie scene

 

Remembering this mantra: Lose a battle to win the war.

On it.

Recently inspired (again) watching a top three all time favorite movie, Without Limits (the struggle for understanding between Bill Bowerman and Steve Prefontaine – an Olympic Coach and an Olympic Athlete at the 1972 Munich Olympics)

(yes, this is obscure yet it frees a writer to occasionally put something on paper that just feels good to say – it’s so cathartic)

(and it brings a Heavenly smile that is 1,000 times bigger on the inside)

(it’s extraordinarily healthy)

(it’s like having a therapist)

Work like you mean it

Meandering to a different drummer means what?
Meandering to a different drummer means what?

 

Many years ago a close friend became something she never ever dreamed of becoming.

In the past few years she has felt a new calling, while simultaneously and continuously getting better at what she currently does.

And in fact, it’s something that compliments what she already does.

But the new calling is a dramatically different platform.

It might be like a drummer wanting to become a record producer.

Are we who we say we are, and who do we say we are?

Japanese owl symbolism
Owls are wise and in this size, also a choking hazard.

 

Are we who we say we are, and who do we say we are?

We have maybe a dozen important roles, many of them dictated by our life – spouse, partner, child, relative, neighbor, volunteer, and so on. Now think about what we do that pays our bills…

What would we say we do? And what would we say we plan to do when we stop (retire) doing that?

For example, I am a writer.

Live like you mean it!
