(Pyramid of Greatness, Janne Piiroinen)
Where is the greatness but in you?
Life as an experience is miracle if we look at the odds.
Then at our present we may not feel that way. Feeling certain way is, because of the evolutionary advantages of conserving strength among other reasons and complexities.
Life is a result of complex process. At least it is complex in comparison what our conscious mind is at times able to handle. At our best even our conscious mind is a miracle. However, hungry, exhausted, stressed and worried? Not quite so.
It takes another almost miracle to create environment where we are at our best. To create that we need other people who understand this.
Of course societies at large are becoming better and better at this, despite of everything. That’s why there is over 7 billion of us today, more than ever before.
It is illusion that work is over. There is plenty of work for those of us willing to pick up slice of that responsibility which does not belong to them.
To solve problems which have not yet been clearly defined, requires wide range of different skills and above all the one elusive quality that makes us human: creativity.
Creativity is awesome.
What will you create today and how will you share it?
Creativity does not have to wait until tomorrow.
Creativity does not call for perfection.
You might start as a child like level, however do not be embarrassed of that. Think of Picasso, who tried lifetime to reach that state again. That is the cycle, irony and cosmic joke of life. We are afraid to begin, yet once we have got up to a speed we desire to return to that state. And it might take decades of masterful effort to be able to call oneself beginner again.
In order to figure out your strengths and creative tendencies, think of something that interests you. Start doing it with low barrier and commit to it for thousand repetitions. Do not judge yourself until you have thousand repetitions behind you. Then start to ask yourself if this is something you would like to continue in longer term.
Committing to something for thousand repetitions is under three years if you do it daily. It might seem like a lot, or a few, depending on your perspective. How about just be present and do something today?
Have an awesome day!
