I was going to delete this as it wasn’t the photo I thought I had taken. But there was something about it that was rather wonderful, creative and beautiful -so I kept it. Sometimes a surprising image or being out of focus can be a good thing that leads to seeing something in a completely different way/different view. And reminiscent of the Japanese art of Kintsugi. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. And something which makes the object even more beautiful. So what is the impact on my coaching practice? Embracing and learning from our history whilst understanding that the only element that can be transformed is the future. It is not how far you have come, it is how far are you prepared to go.
