The seventh secret
The seventh secret is find a place where you can be anonymous.
I have created time with myself doing this exercise sitting on a log beside the ocean, rain or shine. One time I sat on a couple of those big black plastic garbage bags so that my seat didn’t get wet and I had one of those huge golf umbrellas and it worked amazingly well – and this was at a time when I didn’t have the money to afford a creative environment away from my home or office. Just think, a “create your vision picnic in nature in the rain”. Another time I found myself sitting in a revolving restaurant 45 floors above the city for the entire afternoon creating my vision. You could even go to the library.
The point is to schedule 4 – 8 hours and use your imagination and find a place where you can be anonymous. You must create the environment.
As I write this part of the article I am sitting in a well lit room in a beautifully decorated space with 12 foot high floor to ceiling windows with a fireplace with beautiful background music and as I’m appreciating this space a ray of sunlight just flooded the room.
