“Be steady and well ordered in your life so that you can be fierce and original in your work.”
– Gustave Flaubert, French novelist
I like this quote very much. I think it captures me very well, especially as it relates to my career as a coach. I love my work and I find it even more interesting and engaging as the years progress.
Just a couple of weeks ago, I took a fierce and outside the box step to attend one of Sam Horn’s retreats in the Washington DC area. My work during this retreat is helping me bring more originality and creativity to my upcoming projects, which will include a book and perhaps other tools and resources based on The Quotable Coach series.
For me to move in these new and original directions, I find it extremely important for the rest of my life to be steady and well ordered, giving me a strong foundation to build upon in my vocational efforts.
In what areas and on what projects do you desire to be more fierce and original?
What steps can you take to bring greater steadiness and order to the rest of your life, to help you turn this desire into a reality?
One of Sam Horn’s latest books is Pop! Create the Perfect Pitch, Title and Tagline for Anything. Her work in this book will support you on the path to even greater success. I strongly recommend that you check it out here:
