Designing First Then Doing Always Works Better

Architects, engineers, designers of fashion or websites immerse themselves willingly into design. While engaging their creative abilities, they are forced to address constraints and relationships within the project they are working on before anything further is done. While they go about their disciplined day, we scurry to finish our to do list. Both things small and large. Giving everything on...

The Stresses in Our Life Can Affect our Relationships

It’s normal for us to always think we are consistent. That we are the same day in and day out. Rarely is this ever true. In working through an organizational issue, I discovered three individuals who work closely with each other having strained their relationships not due at all to any interaction between them but rather because of outside stressors in their lives. After exploring their...

The Many Tensions of Challenge

Young male climbing on a cliff on wide alley background The uncertainty of the outcome. Deadline for completion. Where do I find the time? Figuring out what needs to be done. Where do I look for help? Do I have the skills to do this? I don’t understand what to do. I will never figure this out. It’s too big for me to work on. I don’t think I can do this. What if I do this wrong...

Identifying Impact

During a work session helping someone sort out their priorities, our conversation evolved from what is important to what may have impact. Impact’s web definition reads “The striking of one body against another; collision. synonym: collision. n.The force transmitted by a collision.” Certainly we don’t want our lives filled with collisions.

Forgetting it’s the small subtle things we do that makes other trust us when we are consistent. Making things easier, no matter how difficult, when we are more consistent in how we...

Can Opposites Both Be True?

Sun and moon together on the sky symbolizing time, opposites, harmony etc We rarely think about opposites in our everyday lives. There is so much certainty in our beliefs that the only place we confront opposites is when we talk to others. What we miss in our quick dismissal of an opposite is its possibility. For the measure of truth is always a subjective one. Leaving possibility as a helful...

How Will I Do This The Next Time?

This is a new question for me that has become my friend. Suprisingly, “how will I do this the next time” is the first thing I consider now when needing to do anything. For if you pay attention, we end up doing many of the same types of things on a regular basis. Prompted in part by our work, responsibilities, and interests. The struggle to find something needed haunts me for years...

Being Thoughtful

“Full of thought” resides in the word thoughtful. This word is more outward facing than inward. Conveying an attitude towards others rather than describing isolated contemplation. Of consideration, respect, caring, empathy, and concern. Being thoughtful is a proactive step prior to interacting with others. It involves guessing the state of mind of someone and then letting this...
