Tips for Developing Your Dream Team (Pt. 2)

Happy Tuesday!

I hope you are all enjoying your new year so far. The full moon was brilliant in the sky last night and I hope you had the good fortune of noticing how beautiful it was.

I was very busy but productive yesterday. Between coaching sessions, I got outside for some stone lifting. I had fun rebuilding a stack on top of a huge rock that the wind or animals had toppled. It was quite an athletic (stay alert and stay alive) event. It was refreshing to be outside in the sun, with the creatures, and the beautiful views.


I hope each of you are creating a little time each day to reconnect with nature. It makes a big difference if you get your bare feet on earth, grass, or stone for a few minutes each day.

Grounding this way, quickly bleeds off the excess, chaotic electromagnetic energies that get trapped in our bodies from being around so much electronic lights, computers, web systems, wireless systems, etc!


When it comes to building your dream team, there are a couple additional tips I’d like to share today, that expand on what I shared yesterday:

1. Less Is More: The natural urge for beginning Dream weavers is to interact with, and bring lots of people into the mix. When building a dream team, I suggest you plan your dream in stages of unfolding or development.

Then, list the areas of information and the types of experts that will be most supportive for each successive stage of development.

By prioritizing your interactions with potential dream team members to only the ones necessary at any given stage of development, you will reduce communications and interactions to those that are necessary.

I can assure you, you can loose a LOT of time with untimely interactions. The result is often feeling stressed, short on time, and forgetting who said what and who’s doing what when!

2. Prioritize Support Members: Not everyone on your dream team will have holistic expertise with regard to your project.

There will naturally be people with a range of knowledge and experience, and time availability. If you prioritize your dream team members such that you create awareness as to which Chief to listen to at each successive stage, you can minimize stress and maximize productivity.

When you have many Chiefs and one Indian (you), it’s easy to experience inner-conflict. You may have conflicting advice from dream team members and feel insecure about following one Chief’s advice and not the others.

These tips may seem small, but they can have a HUGE difference in both the efficiency of your experience, and the quality of life you experience while building your dream.

After all, what’s the point of building a dream at the expense of your health and well-being?

PS: You can still get into my upcoming zen In The Garden workshop Saturday, March 9. Join us for a very healing, growing, fun experience!

I know I’ll be having a great time so if you join me, I suspect you will too!

You may get to see a Bobcat and lots of beautiful hawks; they have been doing their mating ritual lately where they hook feet and spin out of control. Very impressive.

Love and chi,
