October 18 Rituals
This Starbucks ad has captured my imagination lately – personally and professionally. Most people are tied – knowingly or unknowingly – to daily rituals. We lose track of how much time we spend in a prescribed pattern of behavior – day in and day out – and we become quite attached to the predictability of that experience despite losing sight of the wonder of unpredictability. I love to design experiences, and I simultaneously love and hate daily rituals because while they are so embraced, they can blind us to the magic of the universe.
Today I am thankful
- for the peace of my daily rituals (and for a little break from them as well).
- for the chance to do what I truly love and share my insights and passions with others.
- for the people that come to listen – week after week – are kind to each other and share of themselves, make me laugh, and leave me feeling better than when I started.
For what are you thankful?
