Do you select where you will live based on the address? Maybe not the exact address as much as the neighborhood. You probably aren’t moving into the White House, but your address is as important to have the “right” house number as it is important to live in the “right” neighborhood.
How would you feel if you lost all your “stuff?” I’m sitting in my new townhouse with two boxes of clothes, two boxes of books, my laptop, printer and two fold up camping chairs waiting for my worldly possessions to arrive.
Have you ever been among a group of friends and a question is asked that causes you to stop and question how do you feel? Recently, I attended a women’s breakfast meeting. The question that stirred the group to respond emotionally was how do you juggle everything in your day and make decisions with significant impact so quickly when so much is being juggled.
Transitions by Seth Godin
Coming and going matter far more than what happens in the middle.
Tearing off the bandage.
Meeting someone new.
Getting on the airplane, getting off of it.
Ending a feud.
We mistakenly spend most of our time thinking about, working on and measuring the in-between parts, imagining that this is the meat of it, the important work. In fact, humans remember the transitions, because it’s moments of change and possibility and trepidation that light us up.
My mentoring practice supports women on their quest to capture the passion they realize they have lost when life creeps up on you and you’ve missed actively living a chapter. When you’re requesting mentoring on your goals, email email@example.com. Are you on a quest to find the part of your life you lost through recent transitions?
How many times have you been impatient?
Who’s having a temper tantrum today? Why is it easier to say what you don’t want rather than what you do? By process of elimination, it is easier to cross out rather than the time to create something new.
