Show Notes

There's a magic to going into a situation completely open, unprepared and without a plan, and improvising your way into a beautiful dance.

Even though there's always the risk that instead of a beautiful dance, you just stumble and fall flat on your face.

But if you're not willing to get lost, you'll never find yourself in an unexpected place. Being willing to get lost, to waste time, to look foolish, to make mistakes, is the price of admission.

Part of inner work is understanding when it's the right time to plan and prepare, and when it's the right time to let go of your plans and improvise.

132: The Tyranny of Practicality

“Shut the fuck up and do it anyways” used to be my mantra. I lived my life in such a disciplined, pragmatic way, which was great for producing results but I was so out of touch with my own thoughts and feelings that it was creating a negative impact in my life. I realized there is tyranny in practicality.  I’m not saying there’s no use in being pragmatic, but life is not always about being practical. How effective is it to think in such a disciplined way when it offers zero flexibility? In this episode, I discuss the spectrum between practicality and flexibility and the challenges each side of the coin demands of us.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep132 Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...
