My Intention for Writing Mindful Information Blog
I begin all my projects with developing a Statement of Intention, so I want to begin this new blog by sharing with you my intention for writing it.
My intention is to use this medium to expand my own consciousness, inspiring both myself and readers to be more fulfilled and engaged in life. I will be expressing my perspective on a wide range of topics I address in my consulting work and other writings.
I love to write. Supposedly* Mark Twain said that there are two kinds of writers: those who like to write and those who like to have written. While I’m certainly pleased to have written many publications, it is the process of writing that inspires and fulfills me.
I often find myself clicking away at the keyboard and see ideas on the screen that I had not been aware of thinking about in advance. Other times, I find that so many ideas swirl in my head that the keyboard becomes a magnet for sorting and clarifying my thinking.
Throughout my work day, I speak with clients in consulting sessions that are filled with synergy. In each session, the dialog expands the consciousness of both of us. We create new ideas that neither of us had access to prior to the conversation. Gems are present and presents in this coming together. I want to create that same type of joint creation here on this blog.
I’ve found that when my readers engage with me about my writing, I learn much more about the meaning of my words. I love the engagement and synergy. I appreciate knowing others’ thoughts and perspectives, yet it is the deeper understanding I reach in my own words that compels me to invest my time in this writing. With input from others, I sometimes I change words to be more specific when I feel that others will understand better what I’ve said, yet other times I prefer to broaden the words so that each person can have his or her own interpretation.
While all comments are moderated due to the high amount of comment spam on blogs, if you write a worthwhile comment, it will be posted. If you are a spammer, your ip address will be noted and your message will be trashed before we see it.
I look forward to this adventure with you. May you be touched by Mindful Information.
*I say “supposedly” because someone told me a long time ago that Mark Twain said that; however, I have not been able to find such a quotation after extensive research. Do you know if he actually said this?
