Beach Walk 629 – Structure or Flow?

Wow what an amazing day, and all because we could not get to the beach this morning!

Continuous business interruptions, and it was nearly 2 pm before we could get out. On the way, I was realized how futile it has been to try to schedule a recurring time when we know we can slip away for an hour a day. I wish my life were more even and predictable aka structured many days. And then I became aware of my other attraction to being in the flow, letting life come to me as is. What a contradiction those two felt like for me today!

It was also fun running into friend and longtime Beach Walks viewer, Dan Brown.

Beach Walk 288 – All About the Energy

Here are a few observations on going with the flow as compared to sticking to a schedule no matter what.

I do Beach Walks unscripted. The majority of days, I come up with a topic on the way to the beach (a 7-10 minute drive.) Some days, I get an idea in the shower, or while brushing my teeth, or reading a magazine, or surfing the web. I make a few notes to jog my memory later.

What I’ve noticed is that the thought can be carried over, but often the energy cannot. So I’ve learned to trust that, instead of forcing it. Forcing it is the equivalent of being stuck in a time warp. “But I so loved this idea 6 hours ago. Where did the energy go?” Often, the #2 is right there hounding me: You really need to talk about this! It’s a good topic!! But nah – the energy will come back when it’s ready.

For me, it’s all about the energy. So if you like Beach Walks, then this show is the inside scoop on how it happens. It’s a data point in favor of going with the flow, in case you’re doing research.

Of course some things are more efficient on schedule, but far more things than I ever realized really do better, in the flow, not the force.

Beach Walk 253 – Go With The Flow

Going with the flow, even when it’s muddy brown.

Three days of rain: highways closed due to mudslides, beaches closed due to overflow and runoff. Living on an island means you can’t so easily walk away from your problems. Instead, we get instant feedback from the weather and our own collective habits of mismanaged development.

This is February weather. What’s up anyway?
