I have been toying the idea of writing a blog article everyday for awhile. It seems like an interesting exercise in creativity – but to what end, why? Suddenly, tonight – just before midnight – I have decided it is a good idea.
I am proud of my business is shaping up, but I feel like I filter my messages, filter me, when I am in my business space. I have totally embraced the the “this is me – ALL of me” approach yet. So I keep my personality neatly sectioned – but not isolated. My blog is listed on my business website (http://www.socialfire.ca) and my art website (http://septembersart.wordpress.com) and they all link to each other. So I am not hiding any part of me – just putting one foot forward at any given time.
Tonight – I am braising ribs for tomorrow night’s dinner. Starting cooking at 9pm and they just came out of the oven. Some good friends, who are also really successful business owners, are coming for dinner tomorrow. I am ‘interviewing’ them for some articles I hope to run in one of the local papers – I am writing about company’s that are leading the way in terms of CSR/community involvement.
Oh – and I heard a fantastic bit of advice today – a quote I guess. It is from Marie Forleo (www.mariforleo.com) and it goes something like this: Operate like you can’t make a mistake. Whatever it is your doing, imagine there is no possibility of doing anything wrong.
I love it – I am suddenly liberated to move on some things that I was nervous about….
