Successfully Downloading and Installing "A-Ha's"
Julie Jordan Scott

  

Esther wanted to install a program on her computer.  She visited a download site and began the process.  The download box opened.  The program started along the passageway from the internet to her hard drive.

Inexplicably and repeatedly, the process stalled. On one occasion, she completed the download, wildly applauding.  She discovered upon attempting to install the program that it had vaporized.   Turned from freeware to vanishware all at the click of her mouse.  Frustrated with the lack of success, Esther gave up.

Steve uses a similar example with the entrepreneurs he coaches.  "Our coaching calls may work, for you, like the download.   Continue to re-visit our conversation throughout the week, to continue the installation process."  After a coaching call on Tuesday night, Gail continues the installation in an "A-Ha" moment as she drives to work.  The information had been rattling around in her brain.  Interweaving and making connections, opening doors and clearing cerebral pathways with the deft chopping of an axe.  Gail sips her coffee, glances in the rearview mirror.  An epiphany rings out.

Albert Einstein's brain held the principles of the Theory of Relativity, the murmurs of which echoed  in the hallways of his mind for years prior to its "installation on his cerebral hard drive."   Seemingly out of the blue it came to him as a crystal clear vision.

Instead of giving up your download as Esther did, decide to be patient with yourself.  The first step towards a steady stream of "A-ha's" would be to take inventory.  Like a store owner, look among your figurative shelves and see what needs stocking.  Any of these or personalized examples to you could cause a "fatal error" in your download every time.

Here are some examples:

1.  Is there a lack of quiet time or reflective time in your life?

2.  Is there unfinished business, uncompleted commitments you
have that could be blocking your creativity?

3.  Are you getting enough of the 3 R's?  (In this case: rest,
relationships and really good food).

4.  Are you using both your logical thinking and your artistic
thinking to problem solve?  Are you allowing them to play
together instead of separating them?

5.  Have you remained open to the possibilities that surround
you, or are you allowing self-imposed limitations to take over,
nullifying opportunities as they present themselves to you?

A-ha moments:  When a concept  transforms from simply knowledge rumbling around your brain into knowledge of the heart and soul.  Knowledge that can be applied. Downloaded and installed. Knowledge that can change your world.
