Tips to Fire up the Path to Possibilities

Last time we talked about the creativity of organic leaders.  This time I offer you some Tips to Fire up the Path to Possibilities:

1.  Use needlepoint to free your mind from stress, routines, or trying to force an outcome when present resources fail to give you a solution. It is better to needlepoint repetitive patterns and use one color. This will help you to zone out and free your mind from preconceived ideas. What becomes available is a clean canvas where possibilities come alive. Needlepoint is not exclusive to women. The Boston Globe (1/31/02) reported that male knitters include Russell Crowe, Oscar Winning Actor; Ethan Zohn, winner of CBS Survivor: Africa; Bob Mackie, American fashion designer; and Stu Bloomberg, network TV producer.

2.  Mind map! A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. It is a fun technique that closely resembles how your brain actually works, which helps you to better analyze, comprehend, synthesize, recall and generate new ideas. Its power lies in its simplicity. You will find more info on Tony Buzan's website. Tony is the inventor of mind mapping.

3.  To be an organic leader is to be proactive rather than reactive. Most people react and get hooked into other people's scenarios and drama. They unconsciously fall into agreements of what there is to like and not to like, who to like and who not to like and approval seeking. It is the collective unconscious wherein lies the opportunity to look at circumstances another way - another possibility. Be proactive in being the solution you are seeking.

Remember: Anything Is Possible.

"I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure which is: Try to please everybody." - Herbert B. Swope (US editor and journalist, d. 1958)
