Are you thinking of giving up on your dreams?

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 
It is not wrong to grow weak; it is not wrong to pause for a day, a week, or even several years.

But to give up on dreaming, to give up on your passion, to settle for the status quo… that is never the right thing to do.

When people divorce themselves from their passions they virtually separate their physical lives from their hearts… the result is a deathly kind of malcontent.

Surrendering to circumstance is not the same as giving up.

Surrendering is a deliberate act that saves one life, it allows a person to go back home, to regroup, to rebuild and to fight again.

It is always wrong to give up and it is never good to surrender too soon… keep the territory you have already claimed and continue to fight.

Why I came out yesterday…

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 
Yesterday was a big day for me… I stopped hiding from myself.

When you think of the phrase “coming out,” typically it represents the revelation of a deeply held authentic truth about oneself.

To me, it simply means to stop hiding.

I think most of us hide in some way or another, we hide from our dreams, we hide from our gifts, we hide from our past, we hide in a desperate attempt to avoid being our fully vital, vibrant and wildly expressive selves.

It has to STOP.

We have to come out of the shadows a little more everyday.

No more hiding behind a screen, behind the professional mask of your career or your own apathy… there will be no day better than today to give yourself to the world.

I got struck by Holy lightning

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

It is not all sweat and perseverance…. although surely sweat and perseverance are vital ingredients in daily life.

Sometimes you get struck by Holy Lightning.

Occasionally you are walking on that road to Damascus, convinced that you are doing the right thing, when you are thrown to the ground by a deeper truth, by a lightning bolt from heaven… and from that point on everything changes.

I think this also happens (a lot less dramatically) in our creative processes… inspiration strikes and if we run with it, we are forever changed.

It is critical that when such inspiration hits, that you do not hesitate, that you do not keep on plodding down that road to Damascus… instead throw yourself on the ground and soak up all that inspiration.

Then run with it, do whatever it takes, clear your schedule… wipe your desk clean… lock the door… and write, create, channel the inspiration as quickly as possible… you will move mountains.

When inspiration hits you… you will still have a choice.. choose to follow and not to run (Tweet).

This one thing will exponentially increase your creativity

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 
Your creativity is limited… so is mine.

Although the creative genius inside each one of us demands that we refuse to place a limit on him or her, the fact remains that he or she is indeed running about on an earth that is flat; there are limits, edges, boundaries, a clearly defined territory in which he or she can operate.

There is however, one very simple way in which you can exponentially increase your creativity…

You must lay down all forms of creative snobbery (READ) and radically embrace the creativity of others who are very different than you.

When you embrace the creativity of others the size of your canvas expands exponentially. Now you have access to a completely different set of perspectives, to different life experiences, to a different set of emotional responses… there is nothing as wonderful or as beautiful as this.

One of the best things you do is to deliberately choose people who are extremely different, this way the overlap in your collective creativity is lessened and the imaginative possibilities are increased.

Chopping up a person like an onion

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 
This post is all about the myth of multitasking.

No person can do two things at once, let alone 8 things at the same time.

When you split your attention you divide up your efficiency, and you end up diluting your productivity, weakening your likelihood of success.

This is one of the drivers behind the post I wrote in the weekend about “Putting your Smart Phone Down.”

When I multitask and attempt to do several things at the same time, I am essentially chopping myself up like an onion — the result is always tears

It is however, okay to have multiple businesses, several different dreams, and many discretely different tasks to do everyday. To succeed here though, rather than trying to doing everything at once, we must stack our tasks in a linear fashion focussing on only one at any given point in time.
