We hope you are opening this email while taking care of yourself … staying and feeling safe and well.
We are doing our best to do our best, and at the same time, we are contemplating how we can do better … for ourselves … and as always, for you too.
Wherever we’re headed, it’s certainly not “back”… we are on our way through to the other side of the curve and everything will be different there. It’s not about maintaining our old routines or expectations … we believe it’s about looking forward and exploring what is there for us.
As solutions-focused people who offer solutions for a living, we usually have definitive answers … ideas … inspiration … resources … and we deliver them with passion and confidence, but, right now … what really works? Possibly, for the first time, we really don’t feel that we know.
We do know that we are showing up every day, and hope you are able and choosing to as well … showing up is within our control … and showing up really matters. So many of you inspire us to show up every day … your stories, your ideas, your pivots, your acts of kindness, your vulnerability and honesty. It all works for us.
We also know everyone is feeling and processing the changes imposed on us in their own ways … struggles, opportunities, challenges … perhaps change begins by understanding that it’s ok to not really know what works … to accept what is … to be creative with the opportunity and most certainly, to be kind to yourself.
Each month, we work really hard to deliver something into your inbox that matters … that makes a difference to you … to our world. This month, it’s been a struggle. We want to inspire you, but perhaps that isn’t what you need or want …what really works?
As this month comes to an end, we don’t feel like there’s anything that you “must see” or “must read”. Instead we are sharing the links in our roundup that we know work … feel free to click whatever you want, whenever you want to. Whatever works for you.
