We all know, the most important things in life are not things.
When you’ve read something powerful, met someone influential or spent four days in a conference room chair pretending not to have a sore back, what did you take home?
Eighty-five people pondering that.
I’ve scarcely touched work I brought, not read much I brought along. Taking home loads of new things.
Many in that room this week made significant impressions. We didn’t really have much direct contact with many, but we heard them in action, watched them. Watched ourselves stretching in new directions.
Impressed with program message, its creator and his team.
On the surface all that would seem to send us home as better real estate agents.
Better servants of our clients.
Better members of our communities.
For some it is a package of techniques and rituals.
To believers, to those who trust – transformative shifting of mindset, skillset and purposefulness.
Not so much a change in belief system as ‘change in belief-in-yourself’ system.
Many thanks Colorado, thank-you Fort Collins. Thank-you friends. Thank-you strangers.
Whether or not we ever connect again with many of our fellow learners isn’t so important as whether we connected, or should I say re-connected, with ourselves.
With our center.
With our own centered-ness.
So many things are formulas for changes.
This has been some of that.
So much of this is belief in change, belief in self and belief in each other.
Lots of that.
Calm, tired – not feeling drained.

morning walk: 15C/59F, last walk on Fort Collins streets – early morning darkness with smudges of morning around the edge gave way to bird-choruses and a brilliant ball of sunrise – an awesome conclusion to an incredibly interesting stay
