In the upcoming book, Abundant Possibilities, I argue that an intentional life is a life of authentic presence. We have the best view of new possibilities from the practice of being fully in the present. Being fully present is a challenge. We are easily pushed and pulled by the gravitational forces of memories and anticipations. Presence is the space of bliss between worry and regret.
Yet, the more present we become, the more new possibilities open up to us.
This is critical to those of us whose careers center on creativity, innovation, improvisation, planning, engagement, and change. We thrive on new options and angles, new inspirations and questions.
