2013: A Year of Magic and Meaning
A wild new adventure that challenges you, scares you, takes you to your limit and feeds you?
Or the way it’s always been?
Seth Godin, in his brave new book The Icarus Deception, challenges each and every one of us to step into our roles in the world as artists. “Art is not a gene or a specific talent,” he says. “It’s an attitude, available to anyone who has a vision that others don’t, and the guts to do something about it.”
Today is December 27th. Christmas is past: dinners eaten, gifts opened, wrappings trashed. The holiday magic is back in its hat until next year.
The New Year is around the corner. Champagne and good-luck foods. Fireworks and party sparkle. Midnight kisses. One more chance to get it right before the year begins.
But is that all you get?
Is that all you’ll allow yourself? A bit of holiday magic before you get back to business? What if your entire year could sparkle with magic? What if your 365 days were filled with meaning: doing something that really matters to you, that stretches you outside your comfort zone and drops you right in the bullseye of what you are here on earth to do. What if 2013 could be that kind of year for you?
Are you willing to risk it? Are you willing to live another year not risking it?
- What matters to you?
- What do you believe is beyond your reach?
- What would make it all worthwhile?
Just start where you are. Take the Wheel today.
In my book, I offer you a way to live your life as a creative adventure. This is not a promotional catch phrase, but my personal experience of what life can be. I’ve spent 10 years developing a compass you can use to navigate the highs and lows of the process you go through to create anything new in your life.
It’s not easy. And it’s not for everyone. But if you have the guts to step into your life in a whole new way this next year, the Wheel of Creativity will help you. And so will I.
