Business plans last about 2 hours in today’s fast paced, high stakes global marketplace. Everything has gotten so sped up that reflection and awareness are the keys to planning at the speeds of change. We cannot predict the future, rather, we create one.
Slowing time down is possible with our levels of awareness. What we make space for can move because understanding what is going on with depth makes something new possible. Whatever we do, think, or imagine, it is part of the realization of our living. We are in a process of continuous self-production as life unfolds.
Some of our intentions originate from an ego-based urge while other intentions originate from what arises in connection with others. These are eco-based urges that arise from collective exchanges such that our work is informed. You may be the professional on the path of creating a lifestyle, yet your relationship with clients deeply matters in ways that inform how you serve them. And this dimension translates the context in which the features in our lives define our sense of direction. We listen to the future standing in need of us and choose it as it presents itself in different ways.
In addition, our manner of living is organized in relation to what is conserved. Our intention is held by our choice to create what matters to us. This evolves over time as what mattered before may matter different now.
Creating profound change involves not only the intention to getting to an end-goal but the journey of how we get there by learning something new as we go along. And with our outcome-focus combined with our keen awareness of what is going on, we learn the future as it emerges, and coordinate new behavior when something intrinsically new appears.
