I have been going none stop since I had the vision to create the Wild Dreamer business model, completely charged with the excitement I have for possibility. In reality I have always been one to work hard and play hard, but have found a kinder way to move through life in the past year.
So, when I found myself grinding my teeth and rubbing my eyes in order to get one more jobs done, I decided to just stop. I have come to understand the difference now between riding the charge from inspiration and muddling through the process just to finish the task. Both have a place, but the truth is I am not in a sprint here. This is my life’s work, which means I can take time to cultivate it just so if I need to.
However, my old habits of “suffering to succeed” sometimes trickle back into my work flow, causing me to forget this new pace and model of operating. You see, in order to be a dreamer you need time to dream. It is that simple.
So, instead of chasing the last word or budget analysis, I move now into the dreamscape where I shall dance with the mystery of my life’s work.
Do you make time to dream? To remember the joy and ease of your passion?
