As you might know, my annual event is coming up in September – and to be clear, this post is NOT about the event or trying to enroll you to join me.
I’ve been busy prepping for the event, though, and a distinction became clear to me that I just had to share.
Being transparent, creating an event of this size and scope is a bit daunting, and at times overwhelming.
It’s easy for me to overthink and overanalyze just about everything related to the event.
Am I creating the right event? I wonder.
Will everyone benefit from attending? I wonder.
Will people be glad they came? I wonder.
Did we pick the right color of table linens? I wonder.
How will the food be? I wonder.
The list could go on and on, and I could quickly find myself on a hamster wheel, spinning and spinning and going nowhere fast.
Here’s what I know though…
When you wonder too much, you start to wander… and then nothing gets created. Nothing gets accomplished.
Too much wondering creates too much wandering.
The more wondering I do, the more lost I get.
What I know is…
There is creativity in you that wants to be expressed. If you sit around and just wonder about it, instead of just getting started, you’ll end up just wandering around.
For me, I’m going to stop with the wondering. And instead, I’m going to keep expressing my own creativity, whether it’s in a perfect form or not. I hope that you will too. Share your thoughts here.
