Quantum Leaps

Bamboo spends 4 years building its root system and then becomes the fastest growing plant on the planet.

So whatever goal you’re working towards, just because you aren’t seeing visible progress, doesn’t mean that progress isn’t happening in your root system.

With goal setting, there are almost always periods of failure or stagnancy followed by some quantum leap.

Here are some examples from my life:

    • Getting my first real job out of university, I spent months applying for jobs, interviewing, getting rejected, and working crappy jobs. Until I got an interview with a nonprofit I was excited about and then suddenly I had my dream job.

    • With dating I had 5 years of failure: dates gone poorly, relationships going poorly, and being single until I met the person I wanted to date longer term.

    • And building my business, it was a similar trajectory of lots of failures followed by moments of more intense growth and then sometimes months of more failure.

In nature, nothing blooms in all seasons. The only exponential growth in nature is cancer.

Tulips build their root systems for 10.5 months and then, seemingly out of nowhere, there’s a 6 week period of beauty, followed by more building up the nutrients needed for such gorgeous color.

So whatever your goal is, if you’re seeing no or very little evidence, be gentle. Know that as long as you keep nourishing your goal with water and nutrients, your own quantum leap is likely around the corner.

You’re on the right track. Keep listening to your intuition.

Keep going,


PS If working on growing a creative heart centred business and not getting the results that you want yet, I can help.

Especially with folks socialized as women, there’s a lot of poisonous messaging about making money and sharing your opinions widely, which is REQUIRED to grow your business. And that poison might be part of what’s slowing your growth.

Regardless of your gender, I want to offer you a free one-hour consultation where we’ll look at where you are now, what might be getting in the way and what’s going to lead to your next quantum leap.
