We are a few days away from November and one of the busiest months for me as a writer and consultant. I am savoring these last few days as the calm before the storm of assignments, projects, articles, conferences and events.
I’m not sure about you but when I look forward to a busy month I tend to savor the moments of “downtime”, of “whitespace”, of doing nothing. When there is lots going on there is also a heightened sense of calm, of slack, of quiet.
For me, the quiet times become more intense just as the busy times becomes more busy. It’s part of my professional quest for balance between elements: between leadership and serving others, between creativity and structure, between quiet and noise.
Here is to enjoying November in all its beautiful intensity!
