Instead I believe in taking on life with the belief everything we do is part of an Alpha, Beta, Pilot or a Release/Version for two reasons:
1) Life is a series of learning experiences. Try, experiment, and see what works and doesn't work when cultivating ideas. Don't focus on creating final products; re-frame your approach to consider each 'release' as a version...for example:
Earlier I said take on life "with the belief EVERYTHING we do is part of an Alpha, Beta, Pilot or Release/Version. I know I said 'everything'. I actually apply this principle to my gardening, to my cooking, to my designs, and even to my marriage and family. I gave up trying to be 'that perfect employee', 'that perfect mom', 'that perfect friend', or even 'that perfect wife'. Tomorrow's dinner will be an interesting version of a stir fry, or maybe not! Hopefully it will be enjoyed by all, if not, I can improvise and add or try to subtract something to create version 1.2 or, worst case scenario, order pizza! :) Perhaps I could just follow a recipe, which I may review one, however, part of the fun of cooking for me is to experiment and play with flavors.
Play with the flavors of your life. Take an idea and experiment with making it 'real'. Sketch out a logo design, start writing that book you have been dreaming about (even if it's just typing some titles of chapters or thoughts), or contact us and share an idea or dream you have for yourself, your business, your organization, or for any project that needs to be launched. We would love to co-create something fantastic with you!
Our garden of ideas are housed in this blog. Much of our work is around innovation -- taking an idea from a space of creativity to action.
