Hey Dear Friend,
How’s your summer cooking? Holy hannah mine’s been intense. I’m settling at home right now for pretty much the first time this summer. I’ve been navigating a significant work transition (my shiny new job) and simultaneously chose to spend my summer crammed on extended family outings. First was a three week road trip and retreat with my fiance, sister and son. Van breakdowns, theory conference, mineral baths and crystal healing. Then was off to hometown Ontario where our families mingled. Catching frogs and memories at ponds, rivers, lakes and waterfalls.
And, have I ever been getting some insight about navigating transitions!
Let’s just say that ‘ground’ is a key ingredient. Mostly though, I haven’t integrated many of the insights that have been raining down through the highs and lows of stacking transitions. Because that’s the thing with insight, isn’t it, it needs integration?
Insight itself isn’t enough to create change, it needs to be acted on and integrated in order to truly be useful. Otherwise it threatens to widen the gap between what we can see and what we can actually carry out. One of the moves that helps me to integrate something is to write about it. So expect a download soon.
But there are many ways to integrate and act upon insights. Unfortunately, what I see are a lot of folks suffering because they’re trying to act on or integrate new insights with seeking new insights. Might this be your approach to change? More and more mindsnacks?
I’m jamming on a webinar with my pal and colleague Kevin Snorf this Thursday. Why Insight Isn’t Enough, goes live on Thursday Aug 27 at 10am PDT/1pm EDT.
If you can’t make the call time, a recording will be sent to you. But I love LIVE so much more. We’ll riff on your questions, on coaching, on insight and change. RSVP here.
