Book Learning #8

To just Write is teaching me more about trusting self.

It was mid-day Sunday and I had just returned from the writing den where I made progress in completing the last chapter. I told my wife that I was going to take it easy the rest of the day as I had worked a good deal of Saturday as well. I would do that work I planned on my bike after my 9:00 a.m. phone conference on Monday. I then made some reference to my effort to justify these decisions.

That’s when she said, “You know you don’t have to justify your choices and actions to anyone. You’re free to do with your time as you see fit.”

She was basically reminding me to fully embrace the very heart of the message in my writing.

It was so empowering to feel her support as she lovingly reminded me of my freedom and the accountability of that freedom.

To just write means I must ignore all sounds of judgment (the shoulds) and listen to my own voice – trusting the process as I free my voice to have its say.

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
