Issues and opportunities whirl and swirl around us as we practice our art of living in a world in which the only constant is change.
Our environment transforms with paralyzing complexity.
We are conflicted!
How do we prioritize our usefulness?
How do we find the right people . . . the ones who understand our mission?
We have a daily personal challenge to sort through the noise and preserve enough of our precious time, energy, money, and resources to follow our HEART (Passion) . . . To do our life work . . . to be who we know we are . . . and to stand up and take responsibility through appropriate action (being who and doing more of what MATTERS and less of what doesn’t)
All the while, we hope to attract the “Right People” into our lives – People who share our passion and will challenge us to be the best “I” possible.
Countless “gurus” have tackled this challenge of “Time Management” or “Goal Setting” or whatever you want to call it, and many People invest HUGE resources into “Systems” created to design a perfect life flow.
I’m intrigued by the possibility of finding a “Life Rhythm” such that we can roll with the punches, rise and fall with the tides, “Hang 10” with event the largest of tsunamis.
Open Space Technology offers some very interesting (organic) “solutions” to dealing with this chaordic vortex we’re in.
On the surface, it’s a wonderful process for bringing groups of people (numbering from 5 to THOUSANDS) together around issues and opportunities for which they all care . . . and facilitating self-organization of a multi-day meeting after which unbelievable results emerge.
Some folks have mused that “Open Space” ain’t a bad way to LIVE!
I’m going to take this notion and run with it . . . Who cares to join me?
We’ll start by opening a small space here in Nashville @ 9 AM on Friday September 23.
Let’s DO IT!
PS – At a minimum, your life will be a lot less stressful 🙂
