Time stood still for me today with a quote I heard from the great Dr. Parker J. Palmer.
He said, “As long as we are wedded to “effectiveness” we will take on smaller and smaller tasks, for they are the only ones with which we can get results.”
Here’s a HUGE question for all of us. Is effectiveness your drug of choice?
If so, be careful.
It’s a short buzz with a small ending and the only fix is another hit of the same scenario.
PS – Last week I released a podcast that has struck a chord with many of our listeners entitled “Ludicrously Happy”. You can listen to it here. It was a short riff off of a poem from Rumi and it may help you connect some dots with growing your capacity, increasing your awareness, and living out the difficult and necessary paths for a great-big-lovely story.
