The Question: What did you start this year that you’re proud of?
I recently started “Kniss Connection,” a weekly video series to kick start the week with a positive perspective. I spend a couple minutes talking about a particular topic each week; it’s quick and easily accessible. I love the idea that, with today’s technology, there is potential to inspire and empower people all over the world. If I can make even one person’s day a little brighter, or give them a tool to manage stress, or build rapport with others, then the whole thing is completely worth it.
It’s been a learning lesson for me too… Not only am I getting to know more about video and sound editing software, but working on this project continues to poke my perfectionist buttons. I’m a 7 on the enneagram, so I’m well aware of how easy it is to take on the negative qualities of a 1 – the perfectionist. These videos provide a consistent opportunity to practice letting go and relaxing, instead of obsessing over every last detail of sound quality, background, what I said, etc… I won’t even mention how long the first video took to create, with take after take, but now, it’s becoming a more fluid process.
Here’s the most recent video, in which I talk about an equation I learned from Jack Canfield’s Success Principles (E+R=O).
