Connections and Connecting
It started with me reflecting …. feeling like I’m in the middle of ‘something’, almost like a beautiful wave in the sea. Rolling in as it swells then forms into a stunning curl that seems to endlessly unfold in its mystical magic while enveloping me with it.
Or said another way…in the last couple of weeks all sorts of crazy synchronicities have occurred. They may add up to nothing, or they may be momentous.
Time will tell.
Meeting people, having open conversations of possibility, joyfully passing around some ideas as seeds that could blossom into something special.
The biggest take-away for me, is that they are seemingly a series of unrelated incidents.
Yet as I was reflecting to write to you all, I realized how related they all are.
Topics included many that we (as business owners /leaders) play with:
*How do we better serve
*How do we persevere and manage obstacles
*When do we pivot and why
*What does bigger mean and how do we get there
*How to do all we envision without burning out
*Holding space for ourselves and others, so we all rise
*How do we grow and up level ourselves
*And of course building the business to be profitable
Yes, it’s an array of topics. Taking place over a few weeks with various people.
From the reflecting I could begin to see how a few related.
Then how another conversation could effect another aspect of a project.
Reflecting gave me an awareness.
Awareness opened new possibilities.
The new possibility then could be magnified and made bigger.
It was really cool.
And I didn’t see it at all at first.
Then the other morning I woke up with a whisper of a thought. One which began to weave it all together.
That whisper lead me to connecting some dots.
Then it came time to sit down to write and as I was thinking about what to share with you all…. taking the time to slow down, that’s when I began to see.
To see how they all are coming together to contribute one upon the next.
So today I invite You…
To slow down…
To stop and review your last few weeks.
To notice the take aways from each interaction.
Then play with the possibilities that may have been sparked within you…
And what those may mean to your goals and vision.
If the ‘opportunity’ to write hadn’t occurred its likely that I wouldn’t have made these (now obvious) connections. More than likely I would have kept moving and missed some opportunities that were clearly presenting themselves!
Don’t be me. (haha)
Do yourself a favor. Block out some time to assess and integrate along the way.
Doing so will allow you to make the most of all that’s coming your way.
Let me know how those connections and connecting goes!
