Intuitive Business

I don’t know any artist that doesn’t paint intuitively. Even when you are classically trained, you still will put your own spin on everything you touch. When you think about it planning a business is a lot like that. You bob and weave till you find something that works, The bobbing and weaving is called failing in some places. However bob and weave is something everyone can relate to and it does not have a stigma as much as the word failing.  The word fail is tantamount to saying YOU ARE A FAILURE, at least that is what you think to yourself and pretty much everyone else does too.  I don’t even know a word with more emotional impact than failure. That keeps most people from trying and it keeps them living in a safe predictable way.  Fear of Failure can Paralyze you.

I was worried about my new business till I realized that nobody knows what will happen and planning till you are blue in your face , won’t guarantee anything.  You just have to do it a move ahead and keep going.  You have no idea what will happen , You don’t know what people will be put in your path that could be a tremendous blessing. Looking back over my life this has been the case dozens of times  and I am sure it has yours too.  But this time I am going to refer to the adventure as bobbing and weaving into what it will become instead of success or failure. 

That paradigm shift made the knot in my stomach go away instantly.
