I was lucky to receive some genuine wise words last week, from a very inspiring woman, Lizbeth Goodman (Professor of Inclusive Design & Chair of Creative Technology Innovation at University College Dublin/Founder & Director SMARTlab).
I was on a creative workshop morning, when Goodman spoke among many other interesting topics about the importance of developing your ‘Plumb Line’. I’d never heard of the term before!
A ‘Plumb Line’ is: ‘A line from which a weight is suspended to determine verticality or depth of water’ that is ‘directed exactly toward the Earth’s center of gravity’. An analogy for your core line. The driving force rooted in everything you do.
By clearly understanding, defining and sharing your ‘Plumb Line’ you, your friends, family and colleagues are in the best position to grow and profit from your ‘Plumb Line’. I look forward to defining mine. A good place to start is by identify what your “Plumb Line’ is not.
