Law of the minimum: Growth is limited by that which is present in the least amount.
A person could have an abundance of time, talent, opportunity, materials, good judgment, whatever…. but if any one of those are in short supply, growth is going tobe choked off.
Looking at what I’m short on and the list has enough boxes filled in that I should be grateful to be making any headway at all. I would appreciate more time, but I wouldn’t rub a lamp to ask for it, much to afraid how the genie would actually make that one happen. What I could really use is a mentor and some peers, more like minded people that are ambitious for challenge and growth. People to develop with. The life drawing session that Jess and I are running just isn’t that. It’s an opportunity that attracts a few people. It’s not a functional peer group yet. I believe it might be that no one is holding anyone accountable for their own growth yet. Maybe it’s time to ask each other to do just that.
Do you want to grow?… and what might that growth look like?
