What if the next time your crazy work situation was driving you bonkers, you took a 3 minute breather outside.
You stand on your back patio and look out.
You notice a new crop of mushroom has formed on your favorite tree. (A mushroom crop is called a flush). You pause with awe.
You ponder how the mushroom takes dead wood and makes something new and beautiful.
You start wondering how you could be like a mushroom and take the “dead wood” of your situation and recreate those elements into something new.
Suddenly you get an idea of how to handle that tricky client problem. You feel vitality and creativity returning back to you.
Thanks, mushrooms, you think to yourself as you head back inside to tackle the work thing that had you stumped just minutes ago- but doesn’t have you stumped anymore!
What if this type of breather, this type of breakthrough was a natural and normal part of your routine?
You know how to move forward. You’ve got your backyard mushroom feeding you new approaches from this ancient earth-being, that’s just chilling in your backyard.
You’re excited because you’re not annoyed by the work situation in front of you. Nope, you’re now inspired by how you’re going to handle it in a new way!
