Some people might call me a dreamer.
A stupid little dreamer……..but am I the only one?
You can see anything you want boy.
If I could be someone……..
You can be anyone, celebrate boy.
If I could do something…….
Well you can do something.
If I could do anything…….
Well can you do something out of this world?
Is it because I have crazy ideas or I spend some of my time day-dreaming?
Daydreaming is a great thing to do in my book. Daydreaming allows you to relax your mind and it allows you to let the ideas flow. Those are both really good things but I suppose it’s seen as a negative because it can appear as if you are unproductive.
On the surface.
So, what? Would you let a little criticism dissuade you from pursuing your creative ability?
Personally I need it.
My life consists of the extremes of organization. When you are responsible for a big team and a client with a national portfolio being well organized is table stakes. Let’s just say that there are a lot of irons in the fire – all the time.
Without good organizational skills you would never survive.
Many of my colleagues may think there is little creativity in a role like this but on the contrary being creative in this role is a must in order to remain ahead of the curve. Consistently looking for opportunities to improve service, streamline process and keep a team motivated is a clear creative challenge.
My client is not unlike a modern day Medusa.
I know it isn’t a positive analogy. Turning its consultants to stone is less the interpretation than the awareness one must have of the many moving heads each with its dose of venomous sting. Portrayed as ire in the female form unable to confront it face to face the imagery paints a scene of extreme duress.
This not the case but if you lose focus it will bite.
The Hydra didn’t seem to fit the bill regardless of its ability to regenerate its heads once lopped off. Actually, maybe that is more to the point. Once an issue is slain two others surface in its place if the issue isn’t sufficiently resolved. Cauterized. That can go for pretty much any relationship though, huh?
This relationship does not deserve such a severe analogy. Greek mythology just doesn’t seem like the right approach.
I think of myself as a lover and not a fighter and because I also consider myself a dreamer I prefer to look at it in a different way.
The relationship is a garden.
Like any garden it needs attention or the weeds will take over and it can lose its beauty. It becomes unorganized. Wild. You can watch it happen. The weeds, the growth, slowly at first then gathering speed take over the well laid ground. Its lustre diminished.
Without regular focussed tending you become a full time gardener. A labourer.
Which do you prefer?
Gardening or strolling in your garden enjoying the beauty the plants have to offer?
A garden is a nice place to daydream.
A garden is an idea factory but only if you take good care of it. Attention to the gardens needs; its growth and its management offers you the time to dream.
Are you a dreamer?
