Ever had yourself a moment when freedom of choice felt like a big freakin’ burden?
When having more (good!) options felt confusing – even overwhelming – instead of more liberating?
And nothin’ in your ample bag of which-way-do-I-go tools worked for you?
Lawdie, lawdie – me too.
Not exactly what you wanna be feeling in your business when a couple of key decisions are up on deck & people are countin’ on you…
Working with many a brave, bold purposepreneurs these last three years, I’ve learned that this overwhelm thing tends to happen MORE frequently for us than for (almost) everybody else.
Took me a while to see it, but it boils down to two big things:
#1 New options & choices is kind of our playground. As change-agents, rule-benders & thought leaders, you & I are forging the future by creating fresh, new options while using a whole bunch of relatively new options to do it. Simply said, we intentionally expose ourselves to – and engage with – way more choices & options than most people because of who we are & what we’re called to do.
All good n purposeful – and then we bump into #2…
#2 The way we’re accustomed to figuring out which way to go isn’t workin’ s’well these days. At the risk of sounding like a broken record (or a corrupt digital file?), a lot of the old ways of doing things are either broken or no longer apply. Tis why we’re trail-blazers in biz, right? But we’re still figuring out how to replace those old ways, and the in-between thing can be both frustrating & disorienting.
But there’s a crazy-simple solution that regularly takes my breath away & routinely makes folks laugh in surprise – and is the feature of this week’s Soul Map TV.
What do you do to help yourself know which way to go?
And what has not having a reliable new tool in your back-pocket messed with in your business?
try this the next time you need to know which way to go, and follow your own lead. Seriously…
