The American way of life is all about productivity and the value we place upon it. This generally means how many hours we spent at the office, how many things we crossed off our to-do lists, projects we completed, goals accomplished.
Another way of being "productive" is by doing nothing. When used in correct proportion and at the right time, nothing can be the most productive thing we can do – that’s the reason why we should give ourselves a snow day at least once a month, regardless of the weather report!
Rest, relaxation and leisurely activities are productive because they recharge our batteries, an essential requirement that fuels us to carry on. More important, there is an ebb and a flow to our lives, and when we’re in a time of rest and disengagement, that’s often when the big idea, the solution to the problem, the words that we’ve been trying to force just appear….almost effortlessly.
You must let the ebb ebb and the flow flow. If you’re too busy doing, doing, doing, thinking, thinking, thinking, then there is no room for creativity to bubble up from within or inspire from without, to discover what you really want or feel, or for you to heal.
When you do a session with me, I am able to identify your rhythm of ebb and flow, and how the whole work/life balance dance fills your world. Sometimes you might not even realize how "off" you are…and that’s exactly what’s been holding you back in your career, relationships or health.
So give me a buzz; I'll give you a current report of your own unique meteorology and provide insights and tools for you to shine no matter what the forecast!
