HOLIDAY My mind is busy running overall of the current activities.It’s as if I’m living in themrather than just completing themand moving on. I seem to want to holdit all in my head andreplay the elements over and over again.Where I did wellor where I messed up. I shift down a gear and leave all the daily activity to one side.Travelling slower, I can plan and organise.There is more space for thinking here.It is quieter. And then I go even slowerand bring the car to a halt.Leaving all thinking behind.Sitting quietly by the shoreand looking out to sea._______________________PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE1.

RAT RACEWe have inherited a worldwhere jobs and workare allocated to people. Employers decide on the tasksthat need to be done andcarve up the activity. It’s an out-dated economic modelwhere we are paid to do what we are told.And where many people have no jobs. With technology we can nowcreate work in different ways,driven by what really matters. We can link up with othersand collaborate on projectsthat are important to us as individuals. We can take responsibilityfor creating and shaping all of ourfutures and a better world. We can share resourcesrather than waiting, like rats,for the food pellet to arrive._______________________PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1.   How  can you use your skills, experience and passions in new ways?2.   Who can you start to work with today to  create your new projects? _______________________THE BOOK - Thinking Differently About Everything: 100 Perspectives on What Really Matters Des McCabe's daily blog

LIQUIDITY We become so busy in lifedoing all we should andgetting on with everything,that it is easy to forget to look closelyand to assess it all. This is more thanthinking about where we areor planning our future.It’s about something internalbeyond all our actions. It’s about going closertowards the essence of life itself.Being part of the liquid of lifeflowing through all of us.As one.______________________PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1.
