Deep Thoughts (That Are Not My Own): Traffic, Noble Quests, and Creativity as a Magic Bullet
How You Can Be a Good Host to Your Ideas
...so your innerpreneurial dreams can be born.
- Recognize that you have ideas. Pay attention to the thoughts that enter your mind and be conscious of the ideas that can be found within them.
- Notice when you use the words, "I wish" or "There should be". Take notice of the changes you would like to see around you. Be a part of that change.
I finally noticed that a lot of my thoughts were about words and writing, the web and culture. About working on projects and being in solitude. About having a balanced, nomadic career and life.
I noticed that I had always thought, "I wish I was a writer", but had never admitted it out loud. So I did. Later I read about innerpreneurship and thought, I should blog about my innerpreneurial experiences. So I did.
The Words That Connect Us
Finding the Right WordsI am constantly perplexed by how to succinctly describe Cultural Creativity and Innerpreneurship. Which leads me to be constantly perplexed by how to describe myself and what I do. I know I'm not the only one. In fact just yesterday I read this helpful article from Freelance Switch on How to Describe What You Do. But I feel almost embarrassed to say that I have trouble describing what I do, especially since my "expertise" is suppose to be with words. But perhaps that is where the problem lies, I over think it too much. I don't just want words to use, I want the right words to use. I want to use words that make the Cultural Creatives of the world perk up and take notice.
