KELLY COLLAGE_Female Empowerment Brand

Every decision

makes a difference…

And you’ve just made a great one.

Thanks for letting me know that you're NOT interested in business-related content, but that you would like to receive essays that contain cultural analysis & teachings about how to get out of shame and into power. 

I've made a note of your preference, and will be sure to include you when I write those pieces or send those emails out 🙂

In the meantime, you might find these resources (below) useful.

Dear Multi-Passionate Maker,⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Maybe you don't have Shiny Object Syndrome.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Maybe you've been studying & practicing all of these modalities because you're developing a rich body of work, across time.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
(No maybe about it.)⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Multi-passionate professionals often get told that they're "scattered" & need to focus.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
They then internalize negative messages insisting that  their orientation towards lifelong learning, curiosity & creativity is a barrier to success.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
IT'S NOT.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
It's how we build the deep work & creative solutions needed for these urgent times.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Often, when I work with multi-passionate professionals, it's wildly obvious to me that they're collecting tools, synthesizing across traditions -- and making a whole new thing! -- in order to solve complex social problems.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
They've been gathering all.the.tools.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
You know what all those tools add up to? ⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
A practice. A way of doing things. A framework. Your unique process.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
***You have a methodology.*** ⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
So let's build language for it and NAME IT, specifically.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Naming your method makes it tangible AND SALEABLE.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Now it now gets a lot easier to explain it to other people...⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
...and becomes more obvious why they might want to work with you :)⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Once you name it, you substantiate it. ⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
****Including to yourself.****⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Now YOU can see how everything you've trained in has led up to this, has prepared you for this work.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
⁠Because, dear Multi-passionate Maker, you're NOT spinning your wheels or getting distracted by shiny things.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
You're growing the solutions & institutions of the future.⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
Let's make sure you've got the language to describe them. ⁠⠀⁠
⁠⠀⁠
love + justice,⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠
Kelly⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠

Power can be a creative, life-giving force for good.⁠
⁠
But it's my experience -- personally, and in working with culture-making leaders for more than a decade -- that we often:⁠
⁠
🌺don't see ourselves as powerful⁠
🌺don't want other people to think we're trying to grow power (lest we seem selfish or dangerous)⁠
🌺struggle to see ourselves as "leaders" ⁠
🌺hesitate to truly take responsibility for our own power and impact ⁠
⁠
Why? Because we believe power is bad. ⁠
⁠
If we believe power is bad, obviously it's going to be hard to see it in ourselves. ⁠
⁠
(Hello Mirror, Meet Face. I'm talking to myself here, too.)⁠
⁠
It's going to be even harder to deliberately grow it and steward it.⁠
⁠
**And why wouldn't we believe that power is bad? **⁠
Most of us have direct experience with power being used against us.⁠
⁠
But power doesn't have to mean abuse.⁠
It doesn't have to be mean oppression.⁠
⁠
Nor does that have to be the way we use it.⁠
⁠
Power can be a transformative force for good -- one that we use to create new realities for ourselves and each other.⁠
⁠
We can use power to protect ourselves and each other, and to grow a future in which we all flourish.⁠
⁠
That kind of power can take three forms (h/t @BreneBrown in #DareToLead):⁠
⁠
❣️Power to -- our ability to make things happen⁠
❣️Power with -- our abiltiy to come together as small teams and large groups and leverage our power (this has an exponential effect)⁠
❣️Power within -- our internal spirit/source/capacity⁠
⁠
And so...I encourage all of us to get free of the notion that power is one hegemonic, destructive thing.⁠
⁠
I encourage us to stop avoiding and under-using our power.⁠
⁠
Instead, let's cultivate and grow and SHARE our power.⁠
⁠
Because doing that will change our lives (let's flourish!!) AND undermine the systems based on that other nefarious kind of power.⁠
⁠
Let's step into our life-giving power and use it to change EVERYTHING.⁠
⁠
PS I trust you with power and resources⁠

Time to incubate an idea is essential for output…and allowing yourself that time is NOT procrastination.⁠
⁠
And actual procrastination — as in, you have the idea fully cooked but do not want to sit your ass down and do it — might not always be a bad thing. ⁠
⁠
In fact, procrastination can be a source of good information. ⁠
⁠
In Antifragile, for example, Nassim Nicholas Taleb talks about the value of procrastination for a writer: ⁠
⁠
“If I defer writing a section, it must be eliminated. This is simple ethics: Why should I try to fool people by writing about a subject for which I feel no natural drive?”⁠
⁠
I’ve started using this as a point of discernment. ⁠
⁠
Sometimes I’ll outline a book or an essay…and then do.not.want.to.write one chapter or section. Often it’s a topic I feel obliged to cover rather than excited to consider. ⁠
⁠
So, Taleb suggested, maybe my procrastination is instructive. ⁠
⁠
Maybe if I don’t want to write about it, maybe it’s not for me to write. ⁠
⁠
Maybe it doesn’t really need to be written by me nor included in my essay/chapter/blog post/book. ⁠
⁠
Maybe I need to reclaim and honour my no. ⁠
⁠
**No maybe about it**⁠
⁠
So now, if I’m procrastinating hard on a topic and it’s not fear of going into hard places but simple nope-don’t-wanna-do-it, I delete that section or chapter or letter and move on to what does interest me and what I DO want to write. ⁠
⁠
Because procrastination can be GREAT information. ⁠
⁠
Listen to it. Leverage it.⁠
