What The World Needs (no pressure)


I made this!
This change started over 10 years ago.

As I think this through, more like 20 years ago.

It’s about identity.  Not so much about who I am now, or who I was in the past, but about who I’m striving to be.

I’m working with a professional coach.  I’ve done this before.  I have 20-year-old materials from "What Color is Your Parachute?" And, counting the leadership and personal development work I did in graduate school (the image I used is from that work, perhaps the most valuable part of that experience besides the people), more than once.

I come back to common themes, that I’ve summarily ignored over the last two decades, that irritates me.

Why?  Because it doesn't jive with the identity I think is mine. Try as I might, I don’t trust my instincts.  In hindsight, they're usually pretty good (as long as the decision wasn't made in February).

I just finished up a writing workshop.  I’m grateful to Janelle Hanchett for sharing her humanity expressed in her art free of charge during this time of change. And, her no-holds-barred communication about the artistic process.

  • it’s messy.
  • there’s never a good time.
  • the magic happens in the revisions.
  • your story matters
  • there's more...

Perhaps my life is work of art? If that’s the case, I’m always revising.

I’m exceedingly grateful that I have the ability and support to make these investments in myself, especially now, as we navigate a global pandemic.

The divisions between the haves and have-nots has become more obvious.  They’ve likely been obvious for those paying attention for many years, the ones affected by the divisions.

Now, what I do next, carries additional weight, at least for me.

What does the world really need?  How’s that for a simple question? No pressure.

I'm moving toward listening to my instincts, doing something I like and am good at, and that the world needs.

Revising.
