I’m *making* an online fundraising event for a school.  I thought maybe people would gain something by seeing my process for creating, rehearsing, collaborating, and performing the event… So, here I am sharing.

The other posts in this series, I’ve been trying to be vulnerable and transparent about my process and the mindsets that help or hinder me. I think candor is really helpful for all of us to feel connected and so that we can understand that our cloudy thinking is not the mile-marker to follow.

Today I had fun. I’m talking to and working with people that I TRUST. I wrote a post a long time ago about hiring and artist and how important trust is. Not only does this practice give me good results and let me relax; it motivates and inspires me. I love seeing people who are good at what they do. I love it when they correct me and tell me something that might be more efficient or more powerful in their wheel house. I love when they deliver on something impossible. I love it when they aren’t just reading my mind, but it seems like they’re predicting where my mind will be and then reading it. I love it when they surprise me with inspiration that is from another universe.

I think the trust goes both ways. The more I trust these incredible collaborators, the more they know I’m not going to snap at them, or waste their time, or disrespect their effort. That makes work easier for all of us and gives us the chance to boost each other up!

It’s a blast. It’s important to me to remember that unexpected things happen all the time, and I can focus on the half of them that are good.
