Riffing off Debra Marrs‘ great blog post series (for #blog30)Â about writers and procrastination, I noted:
I just realized that procrastination is rather like the shadow side of synergies. Instead of creating results greater than the sum of the parts, it’s not creating anything at all. (AKA stuck.)
What I’m noticing:Â taking up Connie Ragan Green’s 30 day bloggingÂ challenge, plus
- finding clients who fit just right with Molly Gordon
- becoming a master of enrolling people in my work with Bill Baren
- connecting with my soul-aligned business with Elyse Hope Killoran
- getting the nuts and bolts of web site creation with Christina Hills
- creating the book both here and in the Book Breakthrough workshop
–everything is connected. It’sÂ all conspiring to move me to a completely new place — a much bigger and more visible place.Â All these connections are building, one on the other, and they are creating immense synergies between the book, the marketing, the clients, and the audience, and doing it all simultaneously.
This is the power and excitement of synergies. All these pieces of learning and being mentored are clicking together in a brand-new way to generate results greater than the sum of the parts.Â It helps to be as intentional as possible and then just step into the flow and take action. But more than all the learning situations I’ve stepped into, it’s the 30 Day Blogging Challenge that is making such a difference. It’s giving me a container for sharing the insights and opening the space for new communities and interactions.
