As I'm writing today, I realize I've put myself in a place of what I'll call positive pressure. Today I have an overload of ideas I'm excited to write about - there's almost a nervous energy to it. This the result of having a genuine interest in things I've been writing about here for the last few days including the concept of No Just Means Not Yet. It also includes looking at alternative structures for solving significant social problems like health issues, homelessness and hunger. Notice I'm not using the work nonprofit here. I'm truly questioning the most effective structure, industry - I'm not even totally sure of the word - for solving these issues besides the current one where charities are forced to fundraise to solve these problems.
Beyond the above, I had the privilege of spending 90 minutes with Steve Chandler along with my colleagues in Melissa Ford's Intentional Prosperity for Coaches Program. Wow! I walked away with so takeaways that I could be writing for days instead of just 15 minutes. SO, the winner among all these competing thoughts is.....SLOW DOWN!
I realized as I sat down to write today how grateful I am to be able to learn from people like Steve, Melissa and the rest of my group. Moreover, having lots of ideas to start creating from is wonderful and the best thing I can do is realize it's not a race. I don't have to hit each one of these ideas out of the park today. I have the opportunity to SLOW DOWN, give each of them their due time, focus and ultimately share them as appropriate. That might mean doing some free writing on them. It might mean sharing them in coaching sessions. It could even mean doing nothing with some of them for a bit while they percolate.
But ultimately, SLOWING DOWN allows me to focus whether on creating, tackling a problem or challenge and most important of all, being of service to someone I'm coaching or working with in some other capacity. Try it.
