Beginning today, you’ll notice a slight shift in the way that The Moments Project entries show up, and are organized. Soon there will also be some changes in the main website that will help reflect the development of the Project.
Initially, I’d intended The Moments Project to be a vehicle for collecting, assembling, and disseminating stories of personal transformation. I intended it to be something that was a part of what I do, and the beginnings of a legacy I’d like to leave. Although it was important to me, in some ways the Project was a sideline, something that was a “project” while the main thrust of my life and energy focused elsewhere.
Slowly, however, it has become clear to me that The Moments Project is growing into a “brand” – my “brand” to be precise. It is still that vehicle for collecting personal stories of transformation, but as my writing has taken on additional flavors I’ve noted that readers are responding to things I didn’t anticipate and the Project itself has become larger. It’s about transformation more broadly, and I realize that transformation is becoming the theme that ties together all my interests. Transformational stories, to be sure, and the sharing of them that brings people closer together. But I’m also interested in mindfulness, Buddhism, and compassionate meditation; leadership, organizational design, and workplace transformation; the transformative power of relationships; teaching, inspiring, and lecturing; all tied together by the notion of inspired transformation. Above all I seek to inspire others to be more, through my job, through coaching, consulting, and psychotherapy, and through my writing. The Moments Project itself is transforming into a vehicle for a broader range of tools and messages; and so the blog, too, must change.
Moving forward, blog posts will reflect a broader array of transformational topics. Here, at least for now, is the plan:
- Mindfulness Monday – posts about the compassionate application of mindfulness to personal transformation and service to all living beings
- Together on Tuesday - transforming relationships at work and at home; currently home to the series on toxicity
- (Nearly) Wordless Wednesday - images or very brief passages meant to inspire, or transform, or both
- Transformation Thursday - stories of transformation or life-changing events, closest perhaps to the original idea of the Project
- Fearless Friday – leadership at all levels; stories, insights, and commentary
I haven’t figured out the weekends – any suggestions?
Posts may be my own musings, or they may be captured from elsewhere, or perhaps written by guests. At any event they will be about transformation and the vehicles that I believe can take us there; and the ways in which I seek to add joy to the world.
If you like what you see, or are intrigued by the possibilities, please join with me in the Project. Share a story, repost the blog posts that hold value, “like” me on Facebook, comment on posts.
