🔮 There sure is plenty around us right now to be fearful about? Right?

A virus, grim economical perspectives, restrictions (too many to name).

So the question is how do we deal with it?
... and maybe, just maybe, what are all the current possibilities for you, your family and you work?

Maybe, jumping right outside your comfort zone would be too much, too quick.
Maybe, you can have a look first ...
Maybe think about what s stoping you ...
Maybe you can ask for some help ...

Maybe you should start by understanding why you are afraid ...
and realise, there is no pain in that...

🔮 Do I have the right tool to get where I want?

May I suggest to first decide, where you want to go first?

It is funny to see how we can plan holidays and business trips with the utmost details ... and we fail to do it for our life - be it personal or professional...

Deciding to find clarity is the first step to knowing what it is you really want...
Then decide the most relevant tools you need.

You make a suitcase after you decide where you want to go.
Nobody goes to the beach with a suitcase full of ski attire ...
Nobody goes skiing with shorts and flip flops...
Why would you start Your Next Adventure with the wrong suitcase?

Find your compass first, then you can use the map...
Otherwise, you will just wander around, endlessly... and you will probably regret it...

Face it now. It's probably better to decide to know what you want to do ...
It might be unsettling at first, and then it stops ...
Wandering around is moving without going forward! "Faire du sure place" in French - I don t have a relevant translation to propose other than "cul de sac".

🔮 If I had to bring a book on a desert island, my clever choice would be this one.

Not because I could not read "Les Miserables" until the end of time.
Rather, because this is the "perfect" to start thinking on the edge of the box ...

This book is emotional.
This book is generous.
This book is exactly what we all need when we think "what can I do next year to get better".

🧐The pitch?

💡 Presenting twelve breakthrough practices for bringing creativity into all human endeavours, The Art of Possibility is the dynamic product of an extraordinary partnership.

💡 The Art of Possibility combines Benjamin Zander's experience as conductor of the Boston Philharmonic and his talent as a teacher and communicator with psychotherapist Rosamund Stone Zander's genius for designing innovative paradigms for personal and professional fulfilment.

In this wonderful book, we are invited to test and to see the possibilities in front of us. Even better, we are invited to create new ones.
Oh and what about rule No6? Simple: "don't take yourself so seriously"

If you were looking for the "perfect Christmas Gift. This is it!
Or at least it is a very relevant possibility!

As D. Sivers puts it "Define yourself not as a piece, nor as the strategist, but as the board itself, the framework for the game of life."

“Every problem, every dilemma, every dead end we find ourselves facing in life, only appears unsolvable inside a particular frame or point of view.
Enlarge the box, or create another frame around the data, and problems vanish, while new opportunities appear.”�

🔮 It makes sense to me (in my own way) and I can explain why and how!

If you can explain to someone else what is your idea, your next step, why it is relevant to you and the people you want to serve ... it's probably because you are VERY clear about it...

It does not mean it will work.
It means that if you have done it once, you can do it again and again. No matter if it works or not. After all, you cannot control everything...

It really means you will learn and continue to learn.
In the end, our life is not a Monopoly game with rules that cannot be changed.
It's a non-finite game...

Who can say what job your kids will do in 15 years when 80% of the future jobs do not exist yet (unless you know which 20% will remain).
And being clear about what they stand for, what they like now, how they can grow will clearly help them to adapt later, for their 2nd or 3rd adult life.

Oh and if you think about this for your kids.
Like the mask in the plane, start with you first. You will only help them better.

Here's a metaphor ...

A woman and her young son had come to the ashram to speak to Gandhi. She complained, “My son won’t stop eating sugar”. “Please tell him to stop.”
Gandhi listened to her and then asked her to come back in two weeks.

Two weeks later he looked at the boy and said “stop eating sugar”. The mother was perplexed. “Why couldn’t you have told him this 2 weeks ago?” To which he replied, “Madam, two weeks ago I was still eating sugar”.

Gandhi could have used his position to command the boy, and the boy would have listened. Yet he took on first giving up sugar himself, and then spoke from this position of understanding and integrity.

🔮 Too often, we overcomplicate things. Going back to basic is always a good starting point.

🗣️ "Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure."
🔥 I love this quote from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

⛔ Too often, we focus on the HOW when the fundamental questions we could ask are, "Why do I feel like this? What do I want to do? What is stopping me? What can I do to move on? ..."

Going back to basic, asking the relevant and straightforward question...
"Who can help me? When do I want to be clear about this?"
And decide to look for a solution that might be just in front of you.

I sometimes read back their answers to my clients.
They then realised that they had already given me the correct answer to the questions when they filled in my questionnaires.
Only they did not realise it, and they had all the answers in them ...

Start looking within, and eventually ask for someone to point out the obvious, so you can practice and recognise it when you see it next time...

🔮 #Clarity Be careful what you wish for, it might just be in front of you ...
It might have been there for a while actually ...

Since we do not CONTROL much (I mean, what do we actually really control...)...
We might as well learn that keeping our eyes & senses open to NOTICE what #OpportunitiesAndPossibilities are just in front of us...

Now, the question really is ... can you TRUST your own #Filters...
Do you have the right #COMPASS to do so?

Keep you eyes & senses open... there might be real gold right under your feet, in your hands, in your head...

🔮 No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving – every day.

An atomic habit is a regular practice or routine that is not only small and easy to do but is also the source of incredible power; a component of the system of compound growth.

I bought this book in 2018 when James launched it. I listened to it (again) this year. I really love the simple techniques and how to implement them.

I was happy with some of my habits that enable me to be flexible, productive and creative. James’ tips enable me to fight some procrastination and beat or dance with The Resistance.

Understanding the benefits is one thing.
Understanding you don't have to climb Mount Everest but rather do small steps every day helps make this real ...

Highly recommended!

💡 10 Things this book will teach you!
1️⃣ Build a system for getting 1% �better every day.
2️⃣ Break your bad habits and �stick to good ones.
3️⃣ Avoid the common mistakes most people make when changing habits.
4️⃣ Overcome a lack of motivation� and willpower.
5️⃣ Develop a stronger identity �and believe in yourself.
6️⃣ Make time for new habits �(even when life gets crazy).
7️⃣ Design your environment �to make success easier.
8️⃣ Make tiny, easy changes that deliver big results.
9️⃣ Get back on track when you� get off course.
🔟 And most importantly, how to put these ideas into practice in real life.

Additional Material:
James’ website (www.jamesclear.com) is full of interesting reviews on Books, podcasts, articles etc.. and even more information about forming new Habits!

🔮 What an amazing word, what a useful meaning ...

Creativity and Innovation are not improvisation.

Knowing "What it is for"
Getting your priorities right.
Knowing "when" you want to reach this ...
is a great start to get organise and quiet the Chaos of our Resistance.

Plan, change, adapt BUT most importantly DO plan, DO change, DO adapt.

ACT!
Not much will happen if you don't...
Not much positive for you, will happen if you don't

Start somewhere, and learn along the way. It will make it easier for the next time...

Improvise when you have not planned for it is haphazard

🔮 My best guess? A lot!

Almost two year ago, more or less, the first known case was identified in Wuhan, China (December 2019). Even thought it was there, even though we knew people living there ... it was a local issue ... and in March 2020, it hit us all.
Panic, surprise, disbelief, lies, no masks, no more freedom of movement, all our plans went crashing. Business and personal plans. Death was everywhere, somehow still is.

We are starting to travel again, to see lights at the end of the tunnel without fully understanding what has really changed... for go.

"The world is constantly changing. With or without you."

To make better plans, to adapt better, it's probably wise to realise
- what it is we have learned from these last two years?
- what changes we want to make (for good)?
- what it is we were not doing that we realise we could do, and enjoy, and don't want to stop doing?
- what it is we kept postponing when we could do right now?
- what is really i portant to us?

- How incredibly resilient we can be
- How good and quick we are at adapting to new ways of getting through difficult situation
- How much our liberty, our freedom, is important to us
- How much, organisation and innovation can live together so we can adapt and enjoy this ride ...

How grateful we can be about what we have achieved so far, and how exciting what's next can be!
I certainly am...

Connect the dots, build a much needed bridge to your future ...

🔮 How long will it take (ME)?

When we plan,
when we allow ourselves to envision our future,
even if we know exactly WHAT we want
even if we have the WHY
even if we know it is aligned with WHO we truly are

The real test is WHEN we allow ourselves to say WHEN we want this.
And take the actions to match not only WHAT we want, we also want to put it in our Time Line...

The WHEN is a great way to identify our most limiting beliefs ...
and then ACT on it!!

Making changes is a decision.

Decisions are often easier to take, when the mental charge, is smaller ... Then you need to act, and actually let go ...

Happy Sunday
