Martha Beck - One Degree Turns

tips from podcast guests Jun 04, 2021

Insight and inspiration for flying higher in the difference only you can make from guests who have appeared on Creative on Purpose Live.

Martha Beck, Author of the Way of Integrity, on the Power of One Degree Turns

"So, what I would say is, take some time today, and tomorrow, and the day after that, to sit by yourself and notice how you actually feel. And if you feel bad, think, 'What could I do to make myself feel a little better?' And if you feel good, ask yourself, 'What could I do to make myself feel a little better?'

This will begin to slowly return you to yourself. I call it a 'one degree turn.'

Back to the airplane metaphor, if you turn an airplane one degree north every half-hour, you won't even notice the change, but you'll end up in a really different place.

So, one degree toward integrity every day, toward your real self, and you can fly anywhere."

Where are you now? Where do you wish to be? What one-degree turn can you take today, and tomorrow, and each day thereafter to help nudge you in that direction?
