Innovating Through Artistry

Ready. Fire. Aim.

Have you ever fired a gun before? How much time did you spend aiming at your target? Oh, and how many mind games did you play with yourself while you were trying to figure out if you would make that one shot?

I think regardless of if you will admit it or not, we all fantasize about hitting our own personal home run on the first swing right out of the park… Might it be a better fantasy to envision becoming “ready enough”- prepare enough- to simply take a chance and swing to see where you need to sharpen your focus to improve your precision and aim?

Yah, I know–I like the first fantasy better too– its more seductive and sexy. But seriously…

I think in life we spend a lot of time, first in our minds and then through our actions ( or lack thereof), aiming for outcomes that have no basis in our future reality. We spend countless hours “what if-ing” while what can be happening in our lives, to help us truly prepare to aim and hit our bullseye, is marching right on by.

What if you just pull the trigger today so you can see what you really need to do to sharpen your view ?

True failure in life is not one where your target was never hit, but one where you never fully experienced what happens when you repeatedly try to..

Besides–you might just discover you hit a different bullseye that, before, you would have been too busy aiming to ever have seen…
