What we can learn from Robin Williams and a pink, silk scarf…
As you are reading this, I am most likely getting on a plane and heading to Denver, Colorado to speak at the Reinventing Yourself Weekend Conference with dear friend and mentor Steve Chandler and a powerful group of PLAY-FULL rockstars!
I’m so excited to see everyone and to take in more of those breathtaking mountain views like the ones I saw earlier this week when I delivered a keynote speech on the Art of Self-Leadership to a group of about 500 accountants in Asheville, North Carolina.
(oh and quick, but very important side note, HELLO to all of the awesome NCACPA people who I met in Asheville who are brand new to our tribe! You all rocked, thank you so much for having me in, for being so awake and alive on a Monday morning, for all the love during and after the talk, and for laughing at my jokes – that is the FASTEST way to my heart!)
>>> And now for a Not-so-subtle-segue… <<<
SPEAKING of that talk I gave this past Monday, I wanted to give you a little sneak listen of something I shared with that group about the POWER of PERSPECTIVE and the principles of IMPROV in dealing with the challenges we face in our lives and in our work.

No matter what is going on in your world, there IS an opportunity to bring a SPIRIT OF PLAY to every challenge and opportunity. I hope this short clip helped you to see that, by even 5% more.
What is the proverbial PINK SCARF that may have come out of nowhere but that you are willing to PLAY WITH today?
Where can you embody the creative, light-hearted spirit that Robin Williams brought to his work into your world?
Let me know in the comments below – I love hearing YOUR creative ideas for being more PLAY-FULL and living into one of my favorite mantras: Creativity is Greater than Circumstance!
Sending you lots of love, tons of fun, and the reminder that, in each and every moment, you have limitless access to your own BADASS Creativity and Self-Leadership!
Lots of love,
Jason “JG” Goldberg
