After being back from almost 2 and a half weeks on the road, sharing the Diamond Cutter System with so many beautiful people in Zheng Zhou, Shanghai, Kaohsiung, Taichung and Taipei, I can’t help it but continue feeling so humbled, grateful and charged by a sense of purpose.
Saying I am blessed is such an understatement.
After visiting the park yesterday, I got into the mode of contemplation and introspection.
Here I am, seated in front of my laptop and 2018 project planning document and for the first time ever ”less is more” resonates so strongly with me.
I have been planning and wanting to get my projects out the incubator, for almost 2 years now.
Maybe I have been wanting to do TOO MUCH within an unrealistic time frame. Or maybe that TOO MUCH is not just in terms of the number of projects but the scale of each project. Maybe I am a perfectionist. Or maybe behind that facade of perfectionism is my fear of NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
But I like this MAYBE best — Maybe I should stop judging myself and my products (or anyone else and anything else) and focus on what matters.
Less is more.
Less comparison, more conversation.
Less judgement, more appreciation.
Less criticism, more gratitude.
Less condescension, more encouragement.
Less planning, more doing.
Less distractions, more focus.
Less self-beating, more self-encouraging.
Less about ME, more about WE.
Think bigger good.
I may not be the best writer around — I know so many brilliant writers in my life.
And I’m telling myself now, it’s OK. Start writing. Create. Produce. Learn. Improve. Grow.
A baby step forward, is still a step forward.
