This is a hard question to get absolute clarity on because we ourselves are constantly evolving and changing. New discoveries, new priorities and new curiosities leave yesterday’s clarifying moment a distant memory. That is the game of life...Just new levels to unlock.
So how does the creative embrace their gifts in a world where most don't understand or see the value of their work? I am going through the process of shifting my professional focus to serve the artist and creative professional.
That's because what’s true for you is not always aligned with your actions.

That's a staggering 69% of our waking hours. That's a lot of time and a lot of information. How do we make sense of it all? How do we keep track of the stuff that's meaningful to us?
This episode explores the practice of sense making and personal knowledge management.
Picture this, you’re having a stroke. The left side of your brain is turning off. You’re leaving the linear external world. Your identity is gone. Your ability to communicate is gone
All your past memories and your future aspirations, poof! And for 8 years you navigate pure bliss, free of morality, judgement and the need to adapt to our environment
Let’s explore that for a moment...
