Little Acts and Big Shifts

Cooking a meal — There’s fast food and there’s slow food. One satisfies a craving and the other satisfies the soul. As long as your phone isn’t nearby, you just might find some peace chopping vegetables and you may even enter a rhythm of being that’s quite serene and wonderfully human.

Smiling at strangers — Try this out for size. We’re not so strange after a gratuitous acknowledgment of the other’s presence.

Writing, stamping, and mailing a handwritten note — Over 3,000 times today  you were sold something. How many times today were you told something in handwritten ink on paper? I rest my case.

Look and SEE — There’s looking and then there’s seeing. I don’t think we see if we’re not looking. Try out a game of ‘I Spy’ in your life, relationships, and business.

Be Silent and Still for two to ten minutes — Try out Headspace for 10 days. When you learn to see and hear the noise you’ll find how to navigate around it and through it. When’s the last time you simply sat still? This will shift things for you.

Organic

The heartbeat of the organic movement isn’t a new trendy idea.

The heart beat is just that…a move back to the heart of the matter and back to the beat that made the music possible in the first place. In other words, it’s a waltz back to our origins.

The proverbial cat is out of the bag and there’s only one party to blame – tampering.

So when it comes to all things: people, relationships, businesses, and, yes, even our foods, we are finding it’s best to let things happen as they may.

We shouldn’t be shocked that wheat without fertilizer taste better. But for some reason, we’ll trade flavor for more in most spaces.

And we shouldn’t be surprised when our relationships bloom with more color and aroma in native, natural soil with wind rain rather than moment to moment ‘miracle-gro’ at mentions and retweets.

Alas, “can we be friends?” may just be the only business model necessary in a world currently powered by spampaigns.

Have you ever noticed what the first two letters of best spells?

Your Role In The Grand Story

At all costs, be a friend.

We need this more than any other label you can earn, learn, choose, or become.

“Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .” C.S. Lewis
