I know that this journey will involve my creativity, and making things – whatever the things end up being. Could be a product, could be a service. Not sure.
It will also allow conversation and work around ideas – big ideas I hope. Ideas that can help change the world – if even on the scale of a microcosm in my immediate world.
Abundance will be a natural extension of my Call. As will be elegance of solution and/or design.
Seth Godin, one of my favourite authors talks about becoming an Artist, in his book The Icarus Deception. I want to be an artist – to be remarkable. I’ve never honestly tried to be remarkable with intent in the past. Always felt too rushed to take the extra care required to do beautiful, elegant, remarkable work. It has hurt me on various levels, and I’ve carried the baggage of those decisions for many, many years. Time to let them go.
Currently, I’m working at my wife’s family cottage, fixing and repairing decks, windows and such. With each fix I do, I’m trying to incorporate some element of remarkable and elegance in the job. So far, so good. Some of these elegant fixes are small and seemingly incomprehensible to the people who view them. Yet, I know they’re there, and that’s what counts.
The sense of accomplishment and release this has given me is quite wonderful.
So, I’m responding to some of the Call today. And, seeking to more fully open myself to it as I go along.
That’s where I’ll find my answer, and the understanding that goes with it. Fun, fun, fun!
