Here’s Why YOU Didn’t Think of That

Dear Smart Humans,

In my work around “Conscious Disruption” I talk about first Showing Up – without apology or permission in the full glory of ourselves. We are so keen to edit, so quick to hack where the shortest path to success doesn’t require a detour. We put our life and intellect on a diet, starving ourselves of sleep, laughter, oxygen, connection.

This is based on an old paradigm that looked at industrial era hustle.

Today with our knowledge of the brain and advancements in neuroscience, we are ignoring what’s easy and right; what makes sense. We do this in favour of hard work, resistance and futility. Then we look at the fresh-faced entrepreneurs who do it all while giving back and giving inward to holistic wellness that makes their bodies and brains produce what we label as genius.

The next time you ask yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?”, reframe what it is you are actually asking.

Welcome to the age of mindfulness and collective intelligence where hustle is an act in the best interest of health and humanity.

Time to Lose Wait

Dear Smart Humans,

Gone is the summer of ’13.¬†We will now be walking with polished shoes & better postures, and consuming coffee with purpose and not an art of leisure. We’ll make sandwiches for saving pennies instead of for picnics and understand why it should really be called YOUniversity. Alas, we will be counting numbers that will impact the bottom line and not just the bottom row in our secret closet of shoes, tools or gadgets.

In the rush of getting back to work/school/life, let us not forget the importance of rushing to stay grounded in the good we do for ourselves. The summer or any holiday for that matter does not live in parentheses — it doesn’t need to be calculated and enjoyed before everything else in the larger equation of life. The greatest risk to your success is putting your potential for mental and physical wellness on layaway until December.

Now is as great a time as any to embark upon a relentless hustle to design the life you want for yourself. Your mindset is the only magic wand you need.
