Paul's Blog: Living On The Edge

We live on the edge.

Not the cutting edge, but the blended, blunt edge of everything important

The place where we can watch and complain and criticize from a safe distance while the world whirls violently beneath us, 

but little of consequence takes hold.

Never risking the center, we remain anonymous: A face, a mask, a shroud. 

Don't take a stand, be content to be swept into the tidal wave of inaction. 

Bobbing on the grey current of mediocrity

We drift, aimless in our circle,

Mistaking our movement as success,

Dousing the dreams of those who dare

While we spin, content that nothing will change today,

Not on our watch.

Our hopes cling to the clock as it spins,

The hours weave and blend into insignificance

Failing to see it is the only constant,

As it retreats from the edge and flows down the drain

But we don't care, time can flow away from us,

We are jealously content to remain unchanged

As we desperately cling to the edge. 


Paul's Blog: Living On The EdgeA Bit about me...

 My vision is quite simple: to make an impact on the lives of the people who have been entrusted to me: You (for reading this article), my family and my clients. 

I coach people. Direct, practical, innovative, meaningful.

I coach for excellence.

I love what I do... and so do my clients.

Over the years I've noticed that business coaching that was supposed to make us stronger actually took away our confidence and made us doubt ourselves. Confidence and people skills aren't developed just by measuring and planning everything, they grow through doing and learning from experience and by taking risks. People want to make a difference. Build teams. Be better understood. Live more confidently.

I founded IBC Impact Business Communication Inc. to create a world where business people communicate and act with confidence to create better worlds for themselves. Worlds where they feel powerful and free to express themselves. Worlds where something as simple as conversation creates energy, understanding and impact. Worlds so exquisite, I couldn't imagine doing anything else.

Much to think about in this challenging poem, @Paul Kearley. Learning to surf the flow of life is one of the hardest, yet most fundamental, life skills we need to master. And each time we catch a wave, we have to know that quite soon after, it will be time to paddle back out into the next unknown.
