What caught my attention on week 45.
“The Japan By River Cruise podcast will take you on a wonderful snarky journey through current Japanese events and the culture. Laugh and also grow wiser.”
Such an insightful conversation on stepping back and leading ourselves in uncertain times. The value of reflecting and learning out loud within communities. Interconnectedness.
‘The spaces in-between’ by Seth Godin
“To focus on possibility, on the change we seek to make, on showing up as an even better version of the person we hope to be.
Especially when it’s hard.”
“This is from Amy’s Smart Girls “Ask Amy” series in a response to a question from teenage Mae about staying courageous.
For those of you who want the words to requote and with a bit more at the end than was in the image:
Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it. And by doing it, they’re proven right. Because, I think there’s something inside of you—and inside of all of us—when we see something and we think, “I think I can do it, I think I can do it. But I’m afraid to.” Bridging that gap, doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that—THAT is what life is. And I think you might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s special. And if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself. Now you know. A mystery is solved. So, I think you should just give it a try. Just inch yourself out of that back line. Step into life. Courage. Risks. Yes. Go. Now.”
“Create more frequent, optional and informal opportunities for people to connect. I’ve been seeing and participating in “coffee chats” that happen weekly, bi-weekly and monthly for those who are interested to drop by (virtually), check-in and share gifts and needs.”
Navigating liminal spaces, staying courageous and participating in ‘coffee chats’ one month/week at a time with a few global communities.
“What if you didn’t know what was going to happen? And you went anyway? If you’d like to join us on an explorative journey on our community platform or by joining in on our weekly Zoom gatherings, have a look here” — @changingview
“Patience is a silent virtue that seems difficult to practice in a world obsessed with speed, connection and noise. Everything happens in an instant, or so it seems.” — @tnvora
“My personal bottom line is this: I am learning many good lessons during this crisis. I am questioning many outdated assumptions. I am rethinking my own narratives. I am adapting and practicing my pivots, and I am refocussing on what really matters.
Maybe the future is indeed ‘better than we think’.” — @gleonhard
