Thirteen sketches…

A rewind for the living of my quest(ion) for my best work in 2015.

How about you?

How might I best serve you and your best work in 2015?

Does that show up for you on the social water coolers or on your website or blog posts? Those are easy places for me to contribute in for you but what is it that serves you best in your own quest for business unusual?

Post in comments, leave your audio answer via the green Be Heard… tab on the right or Start a Conversation… in the social spaces. I listen.


1. True Grit(s) *****

The words; “qualities of courage and dedication to make a difference” plus an iconic player with a character from the stage moment are a personal recipe for gritty compassion.

2. Serendipity Do… ****

I choose to look, listen and feel for more of what makes me smile, laugh and be grateful for in the doing, creating and delivery of my best work.

I will apply artful self curation to words I say, hear, write and choose to listen for.

I’ll actively involve myself to support the best work of more artists, creatives and thought leaders.

3. Those Who ***

I am willing to disappoint, offend, upset or abandon any institutions, ideals, philosophies, structures or stagnant systems that stink of the current status quo.

I fully accept being disappointed, offended, upset and abandoned when I come face to face with what is only mine to face as I do, create and deliver my best for 2015.

4. Leaping Leapers! ***

I choose to love myself, to ask, to review, to expect, to practice, to feel, to observe, to remind myself (and ask others to remind me) to explore and then explore some more.

5. Stop, Look & Listen ****

I’ll stop NOT asking for what I want and deserve in my life and from my work. I’ll stop WAITING for someone else to ask me what I want or deserve.

Ask. Open my heart. Open my soul. Open my mouth. Ask. Just fucking ask.

6. “Use the Force Luke” ***

What feels like a full menu of emotions inside our shared human experience narrows down to fear for me. Why am I afraid? Because I am afraid others will find out I am afraid.

I fully accept that by trying I am fully immersed in doing.

7. Imaginal Joy Doodles *****

So many sacred moments enjoyed while working on this. Conversations in quality time all inside shared spaces both sacred and profane with those who I love and love me.

Each of those gone too fast moments always leave clues to create, savor and discover more of the same.

8. Confessions of a Shape Shifter ****

Choose focused action for 2015 purposed work to keep leveraging what is already working for me.

I will also try fresh possibilities for focused action on promises made to myself and notice the results.

9. Dharma Poop ***

It is a process. I choose to face my own “shadow bag” by leveraging gratitude as the only filter to “stop the stink”.

Can I live fully into the power of my best self and embrace niceness kindness at the same time?

Time to get out of my own way (for now) and find out.

10. Holes in the Water ****

I know who would miss me and my best because I would miss them too (an easy self care metric for the me, the myself and the I to observe).

Those I’m in mutual miss bliss with show up in adventures to allow thousands more to hear but not listen and then quickly show themselves out the door.

11. To Serve *****

Every choice someone makes about my best work is only about saying yes or no to an offer for my best work and never about my best work itself.

What if collected illusions of brokenness are melted away one conversation at a time? I wonder.

12. Best Selves(s) ******

My most valuable personality trait lives in an essence for my best work as The Subtle Touch.

Generously sharing my “take for granted” knowledge of multiple moving parts serves many in all ways.

And I choose to smile and enjoy being fully served in that process of sharing.

13. Bakers Dozen ****

This prompt let me hit the ground running for 2015 and showed me that I am surrounded by people who inspire possibility beyond anything I could ever imagine.

I’ll keep building on relationships started, seek out more relationships to enjoy and do my best to allow results of conversations already in flow to flow and keep flowing.

My intention is to allow all the sketches created this past month (Dec. 2014) to illuminate the path which is 2015 in this moment.

So far sketch number twelve has top of mind overall and I see myself leveraging what I learned and continue to learn via that sketch throughout 2015.

And sketch one has become the over arching umbrella I carry to unconsciously shield myself from those everyday dazes of business as usual.
