CLARITY THROUGH DISRUPTION

Ep. 37

Clarity is something we all seek. But real clarity, the kind we need when the stakes are high and change is the only option, this can only come about through some sort of disruption to our routines, ideas, and assumptions about how the world works.


Well established patterns, routines, and ideas, while they may be beneficial at first, eventually lead to complacency. And the definition of "complacency" according to dictionary.com is, "a feeling of quiet pleasure or security, often while unaware of some potential danger, defect, or the like." So with that in mind I'm going to share three things that are important to recognize if you want to gain greater clarity on a more consistent basis.

NOSTALGIA

Ep. 34
Too often thinking about the future is merely an exercise in managing your own anxiety. But to remember the future, which is to stand in the future and look back at what you’ve already accomplished, is an act of pure inspiration, connecting you to what’s most important. It removes the obstacles, the anxiety, and the limitations to the imagination that prevent you from seeing what is truly possible.Additional Resources:Get a Free Copy of my Book!

REFLECTION VS. PROJECTION

Ep. 33
Sometimes discovering new possibilities is as simple as switching your point of view from projection to reflection. Projecting out into the future from the present day only gives you a limited perspective based on what you currently know or have experienced. It can be hard to see past the obstacles right in front of you. But, standing in the future and reflecting back takes you beyond your current limitations, so you can uncover a future that is truly visionary.Additional Resources:Get a Free Copy of my Book!
