Helping You Create Your Best At Home, At Work, and in Life

Leave Space

Some of us like room in our shoes to wiggle our toes. 
No space? Then it can be more difficult to move with agility and balance.

Artists use their canvas to capture ideas, and the skillful use of unfilled space often breathes life into art. 
No space? Then the message may be unclear or appear busy, overdone, or contracted. 

Musicians use notes of different lengths and pauses between the notes to turn sound into music. 
No space? Then it may sound like noise instead of music. 

We take pauses between inhalations and exhalations, and hearts leave a little space between beats. This allows the heart and lungs to reset and continue giving life. 

Sometimes we need space between projects. When we're stuck in our current project, we can give ourselves some down time. The greatest progress often is made in the pauses, in the spaces between, and in what we leave out. How can you leave a little wiggle room in what you're creating today?
