Ivan, welcome back to musings of a shiny penny! Ivan first guest posted on my site a few weeks ago. You can view his post called Do Something by clicking ::here:: Ivan and I first met through the online community 48days.net, and then we both attended Kent Julian’s Speak It Forward Boot Camp in October. I am really enjoying getting to know Ivan more, and he is an incredible support to me as I continue to Write My Story.
OK. I get a little worked up in there. Got loud enough to make the speakers pop on the laptop! I don’t think anyone could say I’m not showing you what’s in my heart here!
Here’s a link to Mona Simpson’s eulogy of her brother, Steve Jobs.
This story showed me something. It showed me that Steve Jobs, while having and possessing a remarkable ability to see things in a unique way, was a “normal” man. Not so much different from you or I. Other than he saw the value in living a life of passion, going after his dreams, and writing a story with his actions.
What is holding you back from writing the life story you’ve always dreamed of? Why do you allow the world to dictate your story to you?!
A Better Way of Business will be written into my life’s story. I intend for this to be an integral part. I want my work life and personal life to be so intertwined and mixed that the only way to tell whether I’m “working” or “playing” is whether or not I’m getting paid for the action at that point in time.
That is the story I want to write here.
What about you? Does your business play into your story? Is it dominating your story? Is it something you hope to be edited out later???
If it’s not chapter full of hopes, dreams, and excitement, let’s talk. I’d love to help make it so for you!
