Friday Finds – September 29, 2017
Weekends are a great time to clear space – literally and figuratively – and make room for new inspirations and insights to emerge. To spark your own exploration, here’s what we’ve enjoyed this week:
WHAT WE’RE READING: Starfish Up! We’re ‘power posing’ all over the place with Amy Cuddy’s guide, Presence.
WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO: Jean Chatzky talking about launching your own business on HerMoney.
WHAT WE’RE PLAYING WITH: Running experiments to learn fast and get over the fear of failure.
WHAT WE’RE CURIOUS ABOUT: Exploring ways to share what wayfinding looks like at every stage. Have a story to tell? Get in touch.
THIS WEEK’S MANTRA: From the ever-inspiring author Elizabeth Gilbert: “When you come to the end of yourself, that’s when the interesting stuff starts.”
Recognizing that you need to look outward – for inspiration, guidance, or simply a second opinion – is a crucial part of wayfinding. We simply cannot go it alone. Opening ourselves up to the input and learning that other people can provide us not only makes our creative ideas and dreams better, but it connects us with a community of peers and mentors who want to see us succeed and thrive.
This weekend, I invite you to consider: in what areas of your life and work is there room to invite others in? And how might you make space in your heart and your mind to receive what they offer as part of your own learning journey?
