Get a Life!

Escape From Cubicle Nation

This woman, again, has brought into sharp focus a means of freeing ourselves.  THANKS!

Don't know what you want? A picture paints a thousand words

In my coaching practice, a big part of what I do is help people come up with a compelling vision for their life or business. A lot of people get stuck trying to craft words about a life that they cannot quite picture. Instead of painfully searching for words, try these visual tactics to discover your vision.

In this month's ezine, I describe a number of tactics to discover your creative vision including:
  1. Purchase a large bulletin board or piece of foamcore.
  2. Go to the bookstore and buy your favorite 6 magazines.
  3. Imagine that you are a photojournalist that has the assignment of capturing images that reveal your ideal life.
  4. If you are a bit of a (closet) exhibitionist, participate in the wildly popular art blog PostSecret.
  5. Create a personal deck of soul-tending cards using Soul Collage.
  6. Search for stimulating pictures in online photo directories such as iStockphoto.com.
  7. For the technically savvy, create a Powerpoint or Flash presentation with key images and words.
  8. Paint your picture - literally!
