This is something that accidentally got invented at the Week of Biggification program in Asheville.

I said a thing, probably in response to a question. Then Frank drew it as a flow chart.

Then we all decided we needed to get it tattooed onto our foreheads.

Which didn’t happen because we had a board meeting which turned into a plank meeting which turned into a late night boozefest, and then we all fell asleep.

But I got Richard to make it pretty for us, and here it is.

It’s a flow chart. Of spaciousness.

And that’s where I’m headed.

Anyway, as I close out the year, and the pirate ship that is my business is in Dry Dock, I’ve been thinking about what I want this coming year to feel like.

About what destinations I’m thinking of. What beacons I’m following. But mostly: how does it feel?

And the Flow Chart of Spaciousness kind of sums it up.

In fact, I spent a good part of yesterday plugging things into this, giggling hysterically and discovering that this actually is a pretty good way to make decisions and assess what is needed.

So enjoy. And use. And play. And tattoo wherever you’d like, or not.
