The Portfolio Project

Podcast: Transition

Here's a quick check-in about the transition I'm in going from the Portfolio Project game into the next stage of my work this year, and what I see now--looking back--about balance.  I remember that someone once told me that balance isn't doing it all, all the time, but it is often doing one thing for a time, then doing another and creating balance in this turn-taking fashion over the course of a month or a season or a year.  I can see now that for me the Portfolio Project game was an experiment in balance through turn-taking, and for me I think this will be a very helpful model for my future work.

Podcast: Finishing

We're in the finishing season of the Portfolio Project game, and depending on your personality you may be cheering or perishing.  Today's podcast is for you!  I am sad that it is a dry day here in the apartment, so I'm gulping my tea again, but if you can persevere through it you will take away a nice portion of inspiration for your finish. If you have questions or any other topics you'd like me to cover in these podcasts, leave them below.  I can't promise anything, but if you have a topic about which I have something to say--I'll do it.  I'll take requests.  In the meantime, I'll be uploading Diana shots to my flickr stream.

Restoration, Inspiration, Celebration

Restoration, inspiration, celebration.  Before playing the Portfolio Project game, I didn't feel particularly clear or strong in any of these areas, and yet these are among the gems I am taking away from this experience.  Listen below to find out how I traded in cracking the whip for a kinder, gentler way of working.  Tell us in the comments about how these things have shown up so far in your game, or which one(s) you are inviting into your strong finish.
