Possibility & the Someday List

LeaderShape’s Vision: A just, caring, and thriving world where all lead with integrity and a healthy disregard for the impossible.

The notion of living in possibility has been a part of LeaderShape for 30 years now. At the Institute, one way in which we explore this idea is in regards to the visions that we create for the world. This line of thinking allows us to break through mindsets that hold us back and prevent us from reaching (or even pursuing!) our goals.

Living in possibility is not a tool reserved only for vision work. It is a mindset that when embraced in everyday life can open up possibilities that excite us and engage our interests. Possibility thinking brings with it innovation, freedom, fulfillment. It can help us to realize all that can exist in our day-to-day lives. It can turn our thoughts about who we want to be and what we want to do “someday” into a reality.

LSH-all-banners-LO-RES-3There are people in the LeaderShape community who I know embrace this kind of thinking. So I reached out to our Pebble Club members asked them to to think in terms of possibility and share their “Someday Lists” with us. Here is what we received:
