It has been many months… but I came back.
I think I might have found an answer.
One of the problems I have is I’m an idea and strategy person, and not much more. Every week I have a new idea and a strategy to go with it. This week it was:
A hometown-wide community older generation friending venture called ‘Old Friends’. CRBs essential, obviously.
But I know I am not a take it forwarder so I’ve shared the idea and suggested someone else take it forward.
It made me sad to know I couldn’t do it; it’s super unlikely to happen.
There have been many ideas over the years, such as training to be an engineer and building bridges
So I got to thinking… Surely it takes a super-strategy to deal with such a wily brain? And what does that mean?
Strategies I’ve tried before:
- Find a job that works for me (yeah, right).
- Convince myself and employer that I can do it.
- Positive affirmations.
- Push, push, push through the pain.
They don’t work. The only thing I’ve got is compassion and self-love, and a killer idea-factory of a mind, strategy bungy ropes pinging outward. So to make this work for me, rather than against me – I’m 31 and this might be the first time I’ve worked out how to work, long-term, on a single concept of an idea – I have to love myself through each little fall and failure. And not care if I stop. Everything that I do or don’t do is okay.
It’s a tough idea to get into my head, but when I do… watch this space 🙂
