Does size matter? For me, apparently it does! I was looking at what wasn’t moving forward quickly and I realised that most of those things weren’t big enough - they were boring me with their smallness!
The more I explored the more I could see how the size of a project becomes an inspiration to me. Which is one of the reasons I still do occasional consulting work for large businesses - it's that enticement of having a much bigger playground to apply my creativity and capacities to.
The obvious conclusion from this is - "I need to make my businesses way larger." And that's where most people stop. Not me!
Something didn't feel correct. I asked more questions. "What is it about BIG that I love?" It's about having bigger budgets, more resources for creating faster, more engagement with talented brilliant people, more flexibility to experiment, more possibilities showing up by being more visible, more toys to play with…
"How could I create that?" came next. And I realised that I am very very close to having all of the energies I love in my businesses right now. With a few tweaks, all of that could be put into place over the next couple of months with ease.
"What else is there to know about this?" I have this way of popping into social media just when the exact piece of information I require is available. Yesterday someone wrote something like "the universe has no point of view about size - creating something small or large is just as easy, so why not start with large?"
And that fired my imagination some more. "If I stop making it all about size, what else could be possible? What would I ask for that I have never asked for before because it was too big or too small?" Yeah, you can hear my ideas going off like popcorn right now!!
Imagine if we took away all of our judgements about size and asked for the elements of what we would like to create instead? Would that create a different future for your business? It is for mine!
(In case you are wondering, this is what business coaching with Lisa Murray is like... a series of ever-expanding conversations and questions that create and outcreate and create some more! I was just doing my thing on myself...as a follow-on from a conversation I had with my mentor about how I could have everything move forward faster.)
