Create Your Masterpiece: It is time to re-evaluate progress and direction for the rest of the year. To create a conscious life, John Ruskin reminds us,
“When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.”
Are you experiencing a masterpiece in your work and life?
When we started the year, we made some goals, defined where we want to be on December 31st, identified experiences we wanted to have. Then LIFE happened. As Dr. Phil would ask, “How’s that working for you?”
If while traveling your road you’ve hit some obstacles, perhaps it’s time to pause and take stock, to ask yourself if you’re still loving what you’re doing with your time and resources.
John Ruskin lived in the Victorian era, and was a leading English art critic, art patron, watercolorist, and a prominent social thinker and philanthropist, whose ideas laid the groundwork for environmentalism and sustainability. Per Wikipedia, “He wrote on subjects as varied as geology, architecture, myth, ornithology, literature, education, botany and political economy… In all of his writing, he emphasised the connections between nature, art and society. …Today, his ideas and concerns are widely recognised as having anticipated interest in environmentalism, sustainability and craft.”
Time to Evaluate
If you’re not loving what you’re doing, it’s time to figure out ways to adjust or to reset so your actions put you on the trajectory you need to be on in order to arrive where you want to go.
Start by asking yourself:
- What do I love to do?
- What am I really good at doing?
- How could I do what I love combined with doing what I’m really good at?
- Why do I want to do this?
- What feels right in my life?
- What doesn’t feel right in my life or work?
- What am I willing to do to change it?

Time To Stop Working So Hard and Create Your Masterpiece
When we are doing what we love, the effort (if there is any) needed to accomplish something seems infinitely less than when we are doing what we “like” or what we have “become good at.”
Instead, figure out how to do what you love with the gifts that you have, with your many ways of brilliance. Get clear on Why you want to do it, so you can wake up every morning with that knowledge and clarity motivating your every movement.
When you offer the world this combination, that is when you experience MIRACLES.
