Quest2015 – Day 12

Reading time: 03 minutes

Today’s Theme: Best Self

From Sally Hogshead the fascination in the twelfth prompt brings my Quest 2015 full circle. And the beat goes on.

Twelve days with twelve visionaries to imagine your best twelve months is now a complete framework in my eyes.

A framework I am re-visiting, taking apart, remodeling and discarding parts from over the next few days.

Prep work for a grand 2015 New Year’s celebration? Could be. Too early to tell.

Looks like there are a few bent nails to pull up, windows to glaze plus a hammer hole (or two) in the drywall to fix.

For myself I hold the initial adventure of creating a dozen sketches on this wondrous roller coaster ride which is the start of #Quest2015 as complete!

Now I look forward to seeing, reading, hearing and the breathing in of more of what other Questers in the pack have poured themselves into during this process.

My response for our day 12 #BestSelf prompt?

“What is your most valuable personality trait — and how can you bring it forward in your best work in 2015?” ~ @SallyHogshead

Much of my experience in the Quest process so far has been a reflection in the familiar seen again for the first time.

My most valuable personality trait feels like it lives in the image shared below.

These results speak directly to the listening of the brand essence for my best work in 2015 and beyond.

Since this prompt brings me full circle in a powerful way (like several other prompts have) let’s start here…



When those Mystique and Passion triggers showed up a Leaping Leapers! moment happened for me. That was almost two years ago.

Then The Subtle Touch phrase became icing on the cake as the sound of those words sang in my soul.

My dormant trigger;”Trust” is the least advantageous advantage for how others perceive my work.

“Trust” is seen by those my work serves in the big picture of communicating possible possibilities as nothing more than the steady, tried and true they’re already bored with.

Since I do my best work clarifying unknowns and the new I’ll remind myself to create more of what may be new to others by seeing what is old hat to me through fresh eyes.

What I often take for granted gets forgotten and switched to autopilot when by sharing my understanding of those same moving parts many would be served.

And I will smile and enjoy being served in the process.

I’ll use the image above as a visual anchor for the next several days to shift me into my best work for 2015.

I will serve those I already serve while supporting kindred souls I’ve met along the way.

Souls who continually define the feelings only a word such as namaste might convey.

If you’re feeling at all stuck with the day 12 prompt listen in on this passion filled conversation between author Sally Hogshead and Srini Rao at Unmistakable Creative.

Sometimes it helps to let go of the conditioned ways we may view professional assessments too. This one is all about how others see you and not at all about how you see yourself.

In the land of the branding of brand you leveraging your Fascination Advantage results as the mirror to reflect your best work back to you is priceless.

My intention is to continue sharing quest experiences here and in the social spaces where several of us support each other toward our best work.

There is still one big question to answer that all questers were asked before any of us dove in…

“What if you could envision how to live your quest in 2015 with the provocative guidance of visionary entrepreneurs, scientists, thought leaders, artists, writers, teachers, and adventurers?”Jeffrey DavisTracking Wonder

Am I ready to answer that question? No not yet. But I am closer than ever before. And I will be closer still when 2015 rolls in.

Stay tuned to the Quest category on a blog near you for more of the story and join the conversation in the social mix via the hashtag links below.

And you’re not late if you haven’t started your own quest yet.

You are not too early either.

In point of fact my friend, you are right on time.
