The WAR of ART

Have you also experienced a lot of internal resistance to move your ass and do work that matters to you?

But What elicits (internal) resistance (to pursue our dreams)?
According to Steven Pressfield, it is “any act that rejects immediate gratification in favor of long-term growth, health, or integrity.” Nice one, right in the face…
(…does it still hurt you a little bit?)

It’s amazing how creative we get finding excuses to not pursue the meaningful things in life… If you are looking for some inspiration on how to overcome internal resistance you should check out Steven Pressfield’s books…

I just downloaded the new kindle version of “Do the Work” for free… will share my thoughts on this later.
In the meantime… let’s do some more work, please!

ANNIVERSARY No1

I can’t believe that almost one year ago the idea to the PassionBusiness Project was born… It is exciting to think about the emotional flash of finally figuring out what you want to do in life and how you want to contribute to society’s wellbeing.

Today, I asked myself “So how far have I advanced over the past 12 months?” The truth is… not much. A few inspiring conversations with Paolo Stephanoni during the initial phase of his Soundshine Project, a few talks to entrepreneur students at the Tecnológico de Monterrey in Guadalajara, a key-note at the 2010 Modo Design Conference, a PassionBusiness Design Workshop at Modo 2010, and a keynote speach at the 2010 Emprende tus Ideas Conference in Veracruz, and that’s about it. I think that all the speaking engagements reached the right people, at the right time… I was able to plant some new seeds and inspire and motivate people to not reject their dreams…

Since around 8 month I am also working actively on Making Ideas Happen at Phanaint México. Under the codename COPERNICUS Project, I am working on the design and implementation of the business model which will enable the company to transform itself, their customers and our society. The doing part, has been far more challenging than I imagined before. Making something intangible tangible is an Art that I am delighted to experience and I am looking forward that we are delivering tangible results…

I am looking forward to be DOING more and achieving to reduce the resistance that one encounters on his way on making his dreams come true…
