“Tell Me What You Like About It”
Last night, I got about a pound of hair cut off. I feel–liberated. However, the most impressive part was–my hairdresser who did the chopping!
She’s a “senior” – that means she’s about to graduate from the Aveda School. Other than dirt cheap pricing, use of Aveda products on your head, and the blue room (my personal favorite), what I loved yesterday was that I used Pinterest to show the hairdresser which cut I wanted. When I flashed up the hair board on Pinterest on my phone, she looked at the photo, then said:
“Tell me what you like about it.”
Wow. Overall, I hadn’t thought through the details – I just liked the overall photo. However, I articulated my favorite things about it, and then she re-iterated them to her instructor.
OK – why am I telling you all this? (Other than I typically have the time to go about once a year to get my hair done, and it is a rare treat.) I’m telling you about my theme all week–and that is, to figure out what you LIKE in your life, so you can bring it to the front of your BRAIN, and get MORE OF IT into your life. I’ve been working on a project around this too this week, where I was playing the hairdresser, and asking people what they liked about their work.
So…here it comes, my 64K question to you, my 13 friends in the internet ether: tell me what you LIKE about your life! And, the more you articulate that – riddle me this: how can you get more of that into your life? Which, in turn, will free you from more of the junk you DO NOT want to do. Seriously. Take my challenge–today and every day moving forward–it will get you to really think about what is truly important to you. And maybe? Give you a shot at living an even better life.
(Oh, and in case you’re curious – my cover photo on Pinterest is the haircut I chose. The cut is done, and the color is also coming soon.)
