THE TROUBLE WITH PIVOTS

THE TROUBLE WITH PIVOTS

I don’t know.  Maybe I am misunderstanding this new-to-me concept of “pivots,” as applied to making business moves and such.  They seem to be telling me:  You don’t like the way things are unfolding?  Fine.  Turn around.  Go sideways.  Move that booty.  Yuh-huh!

SOLITUDE

SOLITUDE

Twyla Tharp, in her book, THE CREATIVE HABIT:  Learn It and Use It For Life, says, “It’s not solitude that slays a creative person.  It’s all that solitude without a purpose.  You’re alone, you’re suffering, and you don’t have a good reason for putting yourself through that misery.  To build up your tolerance for solitude, you need a goal.“
