Get in the Gap!

As I contemplated what to write about this morning, I remembered something Wayne Dyer talks about called "Getting in the Gap," which is apparently where I've been for the past couple of weeks of not blogging.

According to Wayne, the Gap is that place between your thoughts. He says it is the silence between the notes that makes the music - the space between the bars that holds the tiger in the cage - and the gap between our thoughts that holds the key to our spiritual connection.

Although I haven't posted here for a while, that doesn't mean that I haven't been productive in the gap. I finished up a mastermind group in which I was a participant last night, and am currently facilitating four other groups. All these groups are studying the book Think and Grow Rich! by Napoleon Hill and it's a total joy to see what is happening with the people in these groups as they study these words and raise their consciousness in the process.

I'm still interested in forming a virtual mastermind group to study this book ... please let me know if you're interested. It would involve reading a chapter of the book a week and getting together by conference call to talk about what we're reading and learning. I'd love to have 8-10 people come together to support each other in THINKING and Growing Rich! Here's the version of the book we're studying.

I've also been conducting Job Relations training for three different companies in Minnesota and have done several keynote speeches about transforming our results by transforming our thoughts.

In addition, I spent a couple of days at a resort in Minnesota facilitating a retreat with a fantastic group of people from the staff of the Trollwood Performing Arts School here in Fargo. What better way to talk about the mission of an organization than on the beach! Here are a couple of photos from that session which happened on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

I'm getting ready to spend next week in South Dakota, working with the Division of Wildlife with their year-long leadership development program. Bock's Office works with clients like the State of South Dakota to help them develop their employees over a period of time (we're in our second year with this client). I'm really looking forward to that!

So it has been a gap, but it hasn't been inactive.

What have you been doing in your gap time? Are you taking some down time in your busy life to enjoy that life? What are you noticing? Stop and smell the roses today and let us know what you notice!

Some gaps are spent without being as action-oriented as you. Others stop blogging or working for a while and return to a world where days are lived out normally. I think this return to an uneventful life, even for just a little while, is also good for a person as well.

This reminds me of something a friend once asked me. He wondered if I ever do anything that isn't on purpose - if I've ever just gotten in the car and driven without a destination. I must admit, that idea sounded a bit foreign to me at the time; however, I'm now deciding that it's actually not a bad idea. It's kind of what you said here. Thank you for the inspiration!
