Spark Notes: Is purpose a cross-pollination of ideas?

Introducing Spark Notes, notes to spark conversation within ourselves and with others.  Join the purpose conversation.

Adobe Spark (24)

The first time I had a spark experience in strategy and planning was with a cross-pollination strategy experience.  The brilliance of this strategy is that the strategy was multi-faceted.  There was a leading driver for the strategy but there were legs that supported it.

The Cross Pollination #key2success strengthens by creating multi-faceted thinking, innovation and solutions.

 

What does cross-pollination have to do with purpose?

I came into a deeper understanding of the Key of Cross Pollination on my path to purpose.  While engaging in my knowledge-based purpose diet, I read Choose Yourself by James Altucher.  In the book, he talks about building your idea and innovation muscle through the idea machine.  As a daily practice he suggests reading from different texts and jotting down ideas to practice with our awareness that we build value through the unique solutions we provide.

What would happen if we cross-pollinate the path to purpose with the idea machine?  Perhaps our path to purpose requires a combination of different ideas about purpose.  Perhaps our path to purpose is as unique as the person.   Perhaps the more we cross pollinate great ideas about purpose, the more we serve ourselves by activating our idea machine to generate our purpose solution.  Perhaps this is why the voracious appetite for knowledge is required on the path to purpose.

The first person you serve with your purpose is YOU. You then have an authentic brand and solution to share with others by bringing the full expression of you.

cross pollination of purpose

My experience with the intersection of the Key of Cross Pollination and Purpose are several lenses on the path to purpose (in no order but to spell out the word purpose):

  • Passion – What am I passionate about? What will I take a stand for?
  • Uniqueness – What is my source of unconventional quirkiness?  If I were in a room filled with like-minded people, how would I stand out?
  • Resonance – What does it feel in my body and spirit when I am on the path to purpose?
  • Promises – What are the promises about purpose from my faith tradition?
  • Oxygen – What am I doing or being that brings life, source and energy to my life?
  • Spark – What sparks me? What makes me come alive? What are my life defibrillators?
  • Experiences – What do I uncover when I review my life experiences from the lens of purpose?

Juicy questions, right?  I am jazzed just thinking about my experiences with these lenses.  It was and continues to be amazing.

This week we will unpack each element of the Cross Pollination of Purpose! I developed the Unlock! Me Review as a free offering to unlock our thinking and the stories we tell about ourselves and life.  Sometimes when we answer questions from the same frame of reference, we get the same answers.  The Unlock! Me Review will is my gift to bring insight, knowledge and purpose through 3 simple steps.

Spark Notes: Create Spaciousness Through Gratitude

Introducing #SparkNotes, notes to spark conversation within yourself and with others! Join the Conversation!

Have you ever felt so full of energy, ideas, goals you want to accomplish that it felt constricting?  You are mission-oriented and there is so much you want to accomplish that even in the beauty of your goals, there is some tightness because there is so much to do and one you.  Or, you may feel constricted thinking through some solutions to current challenges, or bumps along the way of implementing your goals.

I learned the technique of gratitude as a young child.  I got a download of finding one thing to be thankful for each day, no matter how small and it shifted my day.  I remember being thankful for tator tots at lunch on a day when they weren’t on the menu. Wow, I can still taste those crunchy tator tots with the hot insides.

Because I have been practicing this technique for many years, it now has new meaning.  I realize that when I go into gratitude, it creates spaciousness.

Along our journeys we can get so focused on what’s ahead that are less connected to the gratitude that lives in how far we’ve come.

When I think about the concerns that I have today and how they differ from my concerns in the past, I am in gratitude of my journey that brought me to this point and this contemplation.  When I think about all of the things I want to accomplish and apply gratitude, I realize if the passion was instilled in me, it will come to fruition if I stay the course.  Like you, I am invested in my goals for the long haul and want to not just check an item off of a list, but to realize the full intention of the goal.  That takes time, intention, enrollment and perseverance.

Spaciousness gives us room for our greater insight to meet us.  Spaciousness opens room to receive new information or to give room for our existing information to move and form new connections that spark innovation.

Gratitude is a #key2success that builds with meaning over time.  We may have one experience with gratitude that shifts and deepens as we practice with gratitude or have an abundance of experience with gratitude.

Our keys to success are always operating in our lives.  But when we become present to them, and intentional about them, we begin the experience of practice that leads to mastery.
