How have you opened up your life this year?

Lucky me, back stage with Amy Grant

Most of the responses have been remarkable.  Within the past year, I’ve received a myriad of replies to my Tuesday morning blogs.  Right now, I’m recalling the bountiful advice on things to do in Hawaii.  And, the guy in Southern California who provided the best tattoo idea – he’s considering inking the word “believe” as his personal and professional brand statement.  I got some “atta boy” messages for this picture with Amy Grant…and, better yet, last week I received an “I appreciate you” message as a result of our Bucket of Goodwill commitment via the Good Leadership Breakfast.  Now I look forward to Tuesday mornings.

Blogging is exciting and scary at the same time.  But, alas, I’m an ‘author’ and many authors these days sharpen their saws by committing to a consistent blogging cadence.  The consistent commitment to Tuesday morning blogs is one of the ways my life has opened up this year.  And it’s been a compelling learning experience.  My growing edge.

Blogs are different than books: books look good on the shelf and feel really good in your hands.  Blogs fly around in uncontrolled flight patterns on the internet…and blogs talk back!  By now, you know that I write directly and indirectly about leadership and the Seven Fs: faith, family, finances, fitness, friends, fun and future. Some of the comments that come back to me sting, some cause me to say “huh?” and others simply make me glad I continue to be a blogger.

Recently one of my blogs hit a very popular blog site: EO.  Click here to read what I had to say about Entrepreneurs and The Seven Fs.

Seth Godin is my favorite blogger. He’s become a celebrity blogger/speaker/author by thoughtfully engaging throngs of leaders and entrepreneurs.  Seth Godin is a business-media Rock Star, on the same scale as Elton or Springsteen.  Maybe, just maybe…with your help…we can build a movement around the Seven Fs that would compel Seth Godin to mention me in one of his blogs.  Now that would really be opening up.

I think I’ll start by sending him an “I appreciate you” message today.  Anyone have a connection with Seth they can share with me?[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
