Becoming BTL involves finding the melody line and then a thousand nuances and a thousand more. Let’s start with finding the melody line. CORE, OPUS, PoP. This is the melody line. Discovering and cultivating who you are. Authoring an authentic aim for work and life. And the discipline of productive action. CORE. OPUS. PoP.
CORE. Start here. Never stop nuancing. Once you have clarity within, drawing clarity for your aim (OPUS) comes into focus. And, when you know who you are, why you’re here, and where you’re going, it only makes sense to develop your PoP (playbook of productive action) to ensure you work your plan.
Most humans just get busy.
There’s always something urgent that gets in the way, something others demand, and something we’re responsible for. So, most of us just live busy, productive lives filled with more compromises and little conviction. Slowly we settle into a well worn, comfortable rut and take up residence well beneath our capacity. We settle.
Becoming BTL requires we build a bit more dangerously, doesn’t it. We take up residence just this side of chaos, nowhere within sight of victim hood. We play with fire on our way to getting lit. Sure, we get burned from time to time, just part of the gig when you use your matches. We keep playing as we labor in love.
What about you? Are you finding your melody line first? Are you discovering who you are, why you’re here, where you’re going, and why it matters? Are you mastering the art of living? Do not become distracted and disenchanted. Do not allow obstacles or others define you. Do not let fear inform your thinking. Grab a hand. Give one too. Keep climbing. Day 10 is good. You?
