Near La Cal Basin, San de Cristo Mountains, Taos, NM
Another incredible day up and on the mountains. Met some wonderful future leaders from the United World College (UWC) http://www.uwc.org I wish I had that opportunity when I was their age. Video and sketches of the 16 mile journey to follow tomorrow.
Limitations may be the most unlikely of placesto harness creativity, but perhaps one of the best ways to get ourselves out of ruts,rethink categories and challenge accepted norms.And instead of telling each other to seize the day,maybe we can remind ourselves every dayto seize the limitation. - Phil Hansen
In artist Phil Hansen's wonderful TED Talk he speaks about and demonstrates how he learned to embrace at what first seemed like a limitation (an incurable shaking in his dominate hand) and later turned out to be extremely liberating.
I too have experienced something similar to Mr. Hansen and after watching his Talk I realized that the 'limitation' was a wonderful and life-changing experience; one that I am incredibly grateful for having and continues to provide growth and inspiration.
Have you too, experienced what once seemed to be limiting that turned out to be your best teacher or yielded incredible benefits? After watching the video can you see how you might embrace personal, team or organizational challenges? How can you use these challenges or limitations to grow, develop and prosper.
