Something New

Photo on 12-31-2013 at 11.09 PM #2Hey people, it’s Lezley.

I’m going to be trying something a little bit new.

This upcoming year, I have a lot more speaking gigs, public speaking gigs, and I want to use the podcast to practice.

Practice speaking and getting to the point and not being so tongue-tied and not always falling back on editing to make me sound like I’m brilliant… (which I’m not – well, sometimes).

I’m going to be doing a lot more podcasts but they’re going to be teeny. None of this 15 minute, 20 minute crap. We’re going to get in and out, get to the point, get out as quick as I can, get concise and clear and that’s all, concise and clear.

Inner and Outer Clarity

Today, I finished up a project that I’ve been working on for awhile and that felt good and it felt nice, but I looked around my studio and it was a mess.

Stuff was everywhere.

Now, I can’t move forward though, until I clean up – like it literally is a resistance within me to move forward into something new until I clean up.

I can’t start something new in the detritus of the past project.

It’s like an inner/outer thing.

In order to be clear and to have clear ground to plant in, I need to clear out my studio.

In essence, kind of clear out myself to get my mind clear and ready and primed for the new project coming up.

A solution to resistance

Think about that.

If you find that you are procrastinating or feeling resistance to starting something new, take a look and see if there’s any areas in your studio or in your house that you can tidy up.

Areas that can clear the ground, quite literally for you to take a new step.

Okay, that’s me. I’m out. See? What was that like? Three minutes?

Woo hoo!

Practicing speaking. No editing for me. (Well, maybe a little bit of editing.)

Anyway, thanks for listening. I love you guys. You’re awesome. I’ll talk with you later.
