  9. 9. My  life   objective. Making  &   Creating Analog  &   Get  Real   Discovery  &   Learning Teaching  &   Sharing To remain connected to all things real and tangible. And to inspire and build connectivity for others—humans and organizations alike.
  10. 10. Lynn’s  life   objective. Teaching,   Sharing  &   Connecting Knit  1   Together “I  put  a  big   table  in  the   center  of  the   store...” I create communities so I can share the things I love with others.
  11. 11. Uncovering   your   objective… A bit of context. Look back to move forward. Make time and space. Crush your comfort zone. Reframe. Think differently.
  12. 12. Uncertainty  is  where  you  find   opportunity. You’re  going  to  do  “what  you  do,”   no  ma[er  where  you  are. There  is  no  perfect  fit  when  you’re   looking  for  the  next  big  thing  to  do.   A bit of context.

  16. 16. Reframing  takes  more  than  hearing   someone  else  explain  a  new  way  of   looking  at  things. You  have  to  DO  things  a  new  way  before   you  can  THINK  in  a  new  way. How  can  you  break  out  of  ingrained   habits  and  routines  to  see  things   differently? When  we  change  the  way  we  see  the   world,  we  can  change  the  way  we  connect   with  people  and  think  about  the  future. Reframe. Think differently.
  17. 17. ACTION FEEDBACK REFLECTION Growth  Spiral
