It’s been a minute, hasn’t it?
Some time since we’ve talked about some motivation. Well, today I had a case of the un-motivation… and I was struggling to get moving even! I was just happy to lie in bed and do nothing…maybe scroll Facebook or Instagram… then in my self-sabotaging screen time ways, I came across an email from co-founder of Procabulary and my good friend, Mark England. The title was this: “High Level Tools (How to UnStuck your World)” here’s a link to Mark’s site – procabulary.org
In this email (and video) Mark discusses how to get out of the rut of negativity you’re in by simply adjusting how you frame your thoughts about your situation that you’ve found yourself stuck in. I won’t spoil the surprise, and I’d suggest you check his work out if you’re feeling like you’re stuck, if you want to be more productive or if you’re going through a transition in life. Procabulary has really helped me reframe the way I think about things.
That said, I put the phone down and grabbed Darwin’s leash, some water, Moneyball and headed out for a long walk. Where to? Wasn’t really sure, so I texted a friend and made some plans to meet up. I had the headphones on and since it had been some time since I listened to a full podcast I pulled up Tim Ferriss and threw on an episode. It was an entrepreneurial episode, as Tim often has those type of folks on as guest and I was tuned in and ready to learn.
The cofounder of Airbnb, Joe Gebbia had some wonderful insight.. and actually a great way of looking at things from a creative standpoint, so this one goes out to all my creatives reading.
What’s that stand for?
When you have a new idea to present to the world you’ll find some that Will love it, some that Won’t plus Who Cares? Equals Move On. Keep going until you find the people that do love your idea.
It was really quite fascinating and made some things click. Check it out
Needless to say I came back in much better spirits and with more direction and a little fuel. Hopefully the next time you’re down, you’ll remember this post and come back too. Oh? hanging with Alicia was awesome too, we bounced ideas off one another and got to catch up PLUS a giant movie in the park was about to start. I chose to walk back home and start my laundry and meal prep. Pictures are on my Instagram story, give that a follow www.instagram.com/usetheschwartzy
Have a good sleep or morning, wherever you are. Keep on creating and you’ll find those that love your idea.
Boom. Go be awesome.
