I'm reminded of a post I wrote in 2004. I had been watching (and learning) from Pelicans hunting off the coast of Malibu.
"Aim with your complete passion. Be meticulous in your planning. Abundant in your release. Pause a moment before you pull the trigger."
I am reminded today because of the calm I feel. Despite the 30 to 300 mph acceleration in my life the last 60 days, the projects I've become obsessed with, the film I created, the opportunities that have unfolded, I have been calm.
It was not so in January and February of this year. This was before I went public with any research results. My "coming-out" was at the Future of Money and Technology Summit, put on by Brian Zisk in my old San Francisco stomping grounds. I was terrified for weeks before I spoke. I couldn't sleep. I meticulous reviewed and went through my research results. They seemed radical. I was terrified with the response I would get. I went through my research for the 5th time, confirming everything I was reporting was cross-checked, triple checked. It was. I had left out the most radical ideas. It was the first time I had presented original research results. (Let me talk to Executives
The world and it's interest in the future of money, transactions, alternate/complimentary currencies has dramatically changed since January. We have taken our first steps into the new paradigm, fragile it is.
Fast forward to today. Relaxed Awesome was one of my mental mindset goals for the year. And while I failed in the execution of it 8 months prior, today, I am firmly planted in the zero point, center calm. Holding this space, savoring the relaxed, yet building the energy, increasing the tension, until the spotlight - pulling the trigger and release.
I hope it blows your mind or at least shows something you had not imagined before.
