5 Q’s for a LUMINOUS new year in business

Hey Fire Starter People

Fire Starter,

On Team D we think of September as the new January, so a few months ago we dove into business-related retrospection and visioning to get free & clear for 2019. Whenever you’re ready to start fresh, here are a few laser-focused questions.

A SHORT HOW-TO FOR DOING A YEARLY RETROSPECTIVE

Step 1: Write a list of the highlights of the last year or season.
You only have five minutes. Write anything. It’s fascinating to see what surfaces when you don’t filter it, hence the time pressure.

Optional… Step 2: Have a good friend look over your list and point out anything you missed, and what they see as your patterns.
My friend, Steph, helped me with this one year… “You know what you didn’t mention on this list? HELLO! That the business made $X last year! That you did THAT business deal, and THAT business deal.”

Oops. I laughed, “Oh yeah. Money. We done good. But! I also got the BEST HAIRCUT EVER and that is monumental.” And then the laughter/dismay tears/laughter came back. I completely blanked on the dollars and deals. All I could remember was that song, and that day at the beach, and crying in the cafe, and THAT idea and THAT idea, and the ONE THING I said that day that made it all better… “My body remembers everything that really matters.” I thought.

Step 3: What pattern do YOU see?
What very obviously gave you joy? What was “big” but didn’t even make it on to the list?

Step 4: What really matters?
Chill out more and really think about what moved you and mattered the most in your past year.

Step 5: Focus.
Determine the five things you’re going to focus on in the next year or phase of your life. (Easier said than done, and/but… such focus is ESSENTIAL to your success.) Go back to Step 3.

And… that’s it. If you want to go deeper, you can always tuck into the retrospection + visioning exercises we have as part of The Desire Map Planner Program. It’s a year of Desire Mapping support that you can use for your life and biz. (It’s $45 á la carte, but comes free with every 2019 Desire Map Planner.)

The key to truly rewarding focus, in business and life, is doing what lights you up. Here’s wishing you a LUMINOUS 2019!

Bright Love,

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.

Goddess of Grief Danielle LaPorte

the goddess of grief: getting to the other side. (and there is always another side.)

Grief is one of the most powerful Goddesses. She swallows your agony and lets it tear her apart. Beautiful birds fly from her belly – each one an insight into life and your power. Grief brings the whole flock to your window and she waits and waits to reveal universal truths to you. She goes to the depths with you. She rises with you…

The Principles of Active Waiting vs. feeling-like-a-loser, losing-your-mind kind of waiting…

I was at a friend’s cluttered apartment and he was saying how much he wanted to have a live-in girlfriend. And I was like, “Dude, where would she put her stuff?” He got his tidy on to make space for the live-in love he was waiting to find. That’s active waiting — happily preparing for what you trust is on its way to you.

this video has been getting a LOT of attention

What are you willing to do for your creative dream? Are you willing to transform? To give it up; be the fool; re-write your story; not recognize yourself; believe differently; be something, someone, you have not yet known? It does take a “miracle mindset”. And…

Some marketing know-how. Cosmic meets pragmatism.

We believe in something bigger than ourselves. We understand that the cultural obsession with productivity is killing our joy & harming the planet. We KNOW the world needs leaders who uphold a triple bottom line—economic, social, environmental. So. This message is for you. (Especially if you’re a Creative, a teacher, a leader, an entrepreneur—or want to be.)
