Learning From The Master Sculptor

“I created a vision of David in my mind
and simply carved away everything that was not David.”
– Michelangelo

Having carved the amazing David from a single, cast-off
piece of marble, this was the sculptor’s reply to being asked how
he could possible have imagined the result.

Regardless of our circumstances, we all need to create lives and careers
that we are passionate about.

We have never lived in a time that has more opportunity to do that
but for many their reality doesn’t match up.

A simple formula can be taken from Michelangelo’s quote above.

1. Create a vision for your life and career

(switch off the ‘Yeah but how..?’ part of your mind….)

2. Start removing/culling/carving away the things now that don’t fit that vision

For example:

Relationships that sap your energy

Spending time with people who don’t believe in you

Hobbies and past-times you don’t love

Committees you signed up to in a moment of weakness

Parts of your business that just don’t do it for you any more

People in your team who aren’t pulling their weight

The wasted hours in front of the TV and/or mobile devices!

Parts of your job you need to be delegating

Grudges and resentments that maybe you’ve been carrying

Creating isn’t just about adding.

Often the magic is in carving away things to create space for the new.

And carving isn’t just for sculptors…
