Reclaiming work

The capacity to be present to everything that is happening, without resistance, creates possibility.*
(Roz and Ben Zander)

There are no rules when it comes to developing our capacity to work – where our skills and knowledge being turned into greater artfulness.

We don’t have to “switch off” at 5pm, or at the end of the week and do what we really want to do.  There’s never been a time like this, when, armed with a smart phone, tablet, laptop or computer, we can open up greater areas of adjacent knowledge and connect with people who are as passionate as we are about something.

In this way, everyone is at least a skillful sub-contractor, bringing their ever-developing best to what they are doing.  You are not your job description, you have always been more

‘Let us allow our wild spirits to roam unfettered and unbound.  Let us roar and howl and voice our deepest yearnings without caring about what other will think about us.’**

(*From Rosamund and Benjamin Zander’s The Art of Possibility.)
