As I expected, lot’s of comments started coming in.
“Balance is the key to life”
“Completely disagree. Balance is what life is about.”
“Don’t think so. Balance is not a constant, the circumstances that determine it are constantly changing and so has to be our life in order to remain balanced.”
It’s great to share a thought out of the blue and to see what comes back.
Let me explain
Humans desire 3 things
They want to know what the limits are
They want to find a way to overcome them
They hope it works
Adrenalin is what makes an adventure great. Adrenalin does not come from balance.
Nobody want’s do drown in boredom. We all long to expand our limits and take a risk now and then.
We are longing for the unknown and seek the thrills of this life.
We are not satisfied with a little of this and a little of that.
God has made us with an unlimited desire to create. Our creativity drives us to not stand down when faced with limits. Our creativity will always motivate us to find strengths to overcome our limits.
Balance vs Rhythm
Balance is a fashion word. It is in fact not very old. It’s trying hard to stay between extremes.
I don’t want that. I want excitement. I want a life that has risks. I want to expand and try new things.
This will only happen if I go out of my comfort zone.
Finding the rhythm of stop and go has nothing to do with balance. It’s rhythm!
Do not dwell in the past –
concentrate the mind on the present moment.
I made this video last week during a walk with my family in the Swiss Alps. I was so inspired by the beauty of God’s nature. As I looked at it on my iPad later that day I decided to make it into a short film. Garage Band helped me with creating the music for it. I hope you enjoy it.
Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure. Oprah Winfrey
Steven Johnson, one of our most innovative, popular thinkers takes on the key questions: Where do good ideas come from?
I think this video has great thoughts and inside on how much we need each other in order to develop an innovative culture.
What sparks the flash of brilliance? How does groundbreaking innovation happen?
