Coffee in the morning? Yoga? Check and check. Doesn’t take much to make me happy these days. Have my wants become less than my needs? Motivation is essential to build a business. More clients. More revenue. Where does your motivation come from? In Midnight Walk and Talk-Ambition Business Materialism-Podcast 615.
What’s your motivation? Material wants can fuel ambition. Good right? Thing is, creative people think a little differently. Motivated by the work. Add coffee, yoga and a roof and you probably have one happy creative. Thing is maybe that creative needs a little more, but doesn’t ‘know’ it. We’re going to walk and talk about it in Midnight Walk and Talk-Ambition Business Materialism-Podcast 615.
Unconscious Needs Surprise
Rules of the walk and talk podcast. No preparation. No plan. See what comes up. I was surprised in this podcast! Thoughts about what we need versus was we want in a material culture surfaced. Do we know what we need? Do we need a brand new car? Nice to have. No judgement on that new Bentley! But, do I need a new Bentley. Nah.
Got four pairs of old jeans. Two pairs of boots. Some flannel shirts. An all protein diet. Casino buffet night once a week. Water and coffee only. Yoga Mat. Two CarHart jackets. A hat and some broken glasses. A 2000 Ford Diesel Ambulance. An old Crown Vic. Travel and Adventure. Lots of audio equipment. Three old computers. Smart Phone. Stay up all night. Do a podcast. Feeling great. In Midnight Walk and Talk-Ambition Business Materialism-Podcast 615.
Sometimes we need more than we want. We just don’t know it. Maybe the ambition to serve more clients and a bigger audience would be served by making sure some needs, spoken or unspoken, get met. Now, about that Bentley.
