3 Body Wisdom Business Lessons

Presence...Balance...Flow

When I began the Tai Chi class conveniently taught at my neighborhood park, it had been years since I had practiced this 'slow motion' martial art. The time lapse didn't matter because this Tai Chi form was different than the other 3 I learned (and had forgotten) so long ago.

Now I'm a Tai Chi newbie again. As I deal with how long it takes my body to grasp the presence, balance and flow of each movement, I realize that Tai Chi is also teaching me 3 valuable 'body wisdom' business lessons.

  1. Patience is a practice.
    • Trying to control our progress keeps us from seeing small steps we can take.
    • Relaxing our expectations frees us to learn from our practice.
  2. Transitions energize our next steps.
    • Shifting back a little gives us momentum for moving forward in a new direction.
    • Slowing down lets us balance the way we take the next step.
  3. Economy of motion leads to results.
    • Paying attention to one change at a time, we begin to sense a way to flow into our next move.
    • Making small shifts, minor adjustments, and little course corrections, we move into a natural rhythm of the steps we're learning to take.

Practice...Practice...Practice

Now it's time for me to take a short break from sitting in front of my computer at work and practice what I'm learning in Tai Chi. Where in business, leadership and life are you practicing presence, balance and flow?

How Powerful is Your Fascination Factor?

Gone Too Soon

A bright start has left us. With Robin Williams' tragic death we've lost a brilliant funny man, actor and blazing spirit. If only the laughter he brought to so many and the love felt for him in return could have been more a comfort to him in his dark days. May he now rest in peace.

His creative genius gave us hilarious alien views of ourselves, each other, life and world events. His lightening fast wit and intelligence dazzled us with his fascination of unusual connections between seemingly unrelated thoughts, ideas, human perspectives and behavior.

Reflecting on his legacy makes me wonder about our fascinations.

Power of Our Fascinations

What fascinates you most in business and life?

Whatever your greatest fascination is, it runs like a river through your work and life.

For me, it's journeying into the unknown to discover and experience the wonders living there. That's why I love helping clients deal with troublesome and complex leadership, professional and business challenges―their uncharted territory.

While the landscape and terrain of what's not working for them is known to me, clients' inner adventures reveal their unique courage, confidence, and way of creating desired results. Their transformational journeys―the practical steps, simple elegant solutions, and inner peace clients experience―fascinate me!

Factor in Your Fascination

Your greatest fascination may be invisible to you, or hidden in plain sight. It can lurk inside big problems that push you outside your comfort zone.

Funny thing is, your difficult decisions and stubborn challenges provoke less anxiety when you know and understand what fascinates you.

That's because you see whether it's busy creating the problem or finding a solution.

When you know its value and understand the role it's playing, you can turn what fascinates you most into a powerful ally. 

Quiet Your Fear with Fascination

I'm curious. Maybe you are too.

  • What deeply fascinates you?
  • Where does your natural fascination show up in your work/business, leadership, and life?
  • On a simple scale of 1-10 (with 10 being the highest) what score would you give your strongest fascination?

Knowing and understanding your fascination shifts your experience of it. You connect to rich inner wisdom. This truer sense of your natural gifts fortifies you to step through new doors and into expansive opportunities.

Play to Discover

Playfully explore the possibilities. One client spent years dealing with extremely stressful complex changes at work only to find herself struggling to navigate a different set of difficult worrisome changes in her own business.

When she realized her greatest fascination was her love of learning, she understood that this deep natural desire was at play in all the stressful attempts to navigate big challenging changes. So she began to focus on what she learns from complex change that fascinates her the most.

This expanded awareness shifted her out of overwhelm—freeing her to engage differently in her growing business. Now she feels a dynamic sense of balance and inner peace. And, she is putting her natural fascination to greater use in accepting client projects and navigating with less worry the predictable and unpredictable changes in business and her life as a mother and wife.

Are You a "Now-ist" or a Futurist?

How Are You Leading Your Business?

Joi Ito doesn't like the word 'Futurist'. He thinks that in business, leadership and life innovation has become the domain of "Now-ists.''

His TED Talk shows how "Now-ists" focus on being connected, always learning, fully aware and super present. The result... "Now-ists" create in the moment.

See for yourself. And, share what you think.
