December 9, 2015, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…Empty

“An empty canvas is full.” –Robert Rauschenberg

Sometimes our plan, schedule or routine is altered unexpectedly.

A layoff from a job.  A slowdown in business.  An unexpected life situation.

It can be challenging to get off of the action-oriented wheel to be empowered by the empty space.

We try to fill the void quickly…and don’t slow down enough to hear something new that would usually be squelched by our default ways of do, do, do.

With a New Year of blank canvas approaching us, how might we get off our beaten paths to enable ourselves to perceive a new possibility: for our work, for our business, for our life?

Empty a closet?  Take a day-off personal retreat?  Get help to see a blind spot?

Don’t avoid the void.

Better yet, the advanced course is this: create a void.

Got empty?

“Abundance is a process of letting go; that which is empty can receive.” –Bryant H. McGill
