How can you be authentic in a heavily curated world?

the idea of being an authentic self is a key driver for me, yet sometimes i struggle to comprehend how we can be authentic in a world that is heavily curated and actively encourages us to be the ‘best version’ of ourselves. on the surface, there isn’t anything inherently wrong with wanting to be the best you you can be, it’s when we fall short of that, but don’t want the rest of the world to know we are lacking, …

The Egg of Being

Today’s Coach’s Notes is going to be a bit of a mind-bender, which often happens when you talk about spiritual growth, Self-development, consciousness, and things of that nature. I’ve been getting the ship ready for another voyage into the murky waters of the unconscious mind in search of the “I” that is my True Self. I’ve sailed these seas in various forms in the past and now I’m ready for another inner adventure. This time I’m using as my guide, …

Something primordial comes this way

Starting to do some inner work again. Part of the entails keeping a psychological journal where I record my thoughts, observation, reactions, experiences of self, dreams, imagery, fantasies, hangups among other things.  The entries can be in words, or drawings/paintings. This evening, I opted for a digital painting using Procreate.  The idea now is to record my reactions to any of the images, colors, or patterns within the picture. I’ll leave my detailed thoughts for my offline journal, but I’ll …

How does fear shape your limits?

Fear shapes our limits I’ve read somewhere that we are born with only two fears…the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All other fears are learned. And what that means to me is, if you can learn a fear, you can unlearn a fear as well. I think the first step in that is to uncover your fears. In what ways does fear show up in your life? What is fear? I like the acronym version: FEAR…False …

Just a thought about imperfection

Today is one of those days where my mood is as grey as the sky outside. Watching the rainfall, my mind drifts from thought to thought without rhyme or reason. I settle on the thought of imperfection and how much time we spend trying to correct our imperfection. Personally, I’m inclined to go with the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi which is concept that: motions us to constantly search for the beauty in imperfection and accept the more natural cycle of …

The only thing people like more…

The one thing people love more than a hero is to see a hero fail! The Green Goblin I couldn’t pass on sharing this story because I see it play itself out in the workplace so often. You can do 99 things right and no one will say a word. But the one time you do something wrong, people will surely let you know. One day Albert Einstein wrote on the blackboard: 9 x 1 = 9, 9 x 2 …

Do you have a plan B?

I like the idea of having no plan B.  I often tell the story of Gen. Grant and the siege of Vicksburg. Vicksburg was a strategic city on the Mississippi River during the Civil War. He who commanded Vicksburg commanded the Mississippi River and the supplies traveling up and down it. All of the Union generals before Grant had failed to take Vicksburg. The Grant came along. He was known for doing things differently. He didn’t play according to the …
