Slow start to 2019? Then consider the expectations of “The Field”

Is your career off to a slow start in 2019?  Would you like 2019 to be a “breakthrough” year at work?  If so, would you like to have a partner supporting your plans – something you can count on to aid your success?  Then consider for a moment the core goals of the “universal energy field” or simply “the Field”. 

The Field is a measurable, physical reality of our world.  Quantum physicists have proven its existence through a vast array of experiments and scientific observations. In brief, quantum physicists and other scientists have proven that i) at the base of all physical matter are tiny waves of energy, ii) all energy waves exchange data when they intersect, and iii) communication in the Field is instantaneous.  This means that all knowledge, all data, and all material things are connected…all…the…time.  This includes our thoughts, which are themselves electromagnetic waves.  (Click here for a more in-depth definition of the Field).

So back to our question:  How can we use the Field to make 2019 a breakthrough year?  As any successful professional will tell you, a cornerstone to success is knowing the expectations of your boss.  It is no different with the Field.  Understand what’s important to the Field – its goals or priorities – and then craft your plan for 2019 in accordance with those priorities.

What are the core priorities of the Field?  As with most truths of the universe, the answer is simple:  expansion and balance. 

The number one priority of the Field is Expansion.  Everything – plants, animals, even the universe itself – is always seeking to expand.  So when creating your plan for 2019, ensure that a primary goal requires your expansion as a professional; this should be a project that will stretch your skills and capabilities.  Be sure that the stretch-project is in an area of work that you enjoy or are keenly interested in learning more about.  (I will write about the relationship of the Field and areas of work you enjoy in a later blog.)

The close second priority of the Field is Balance.  As any farmer will tell you, maximum yield is produced when their crops have healthy soil, plenty of sunlight, and proper irrigation.  In short, when conditions are in an ideal balance.  It is the same in the corporate world.  A creative or maverick middle manager who is terrible at budgeting and managing their team’s travel expenses is not likely to be promoted.  Where further promotion is concerned, this maverick middle manager is out of balance.  On the other hand, a middle manager with moderate innovation skills who is disciplined in budgeting and other administrative matters will be promoted.  He/she is in balance.  Thus, to bring your own performance to a higher state of balance, participate in one project or initiative that will demonstrate your mastery over an “area needing improvement” per your annual review.

How will you know the Field is actively supporting your plan?  First, by the level of excitement you have in creating your 2019 plan (based on the above guidelines).  That in itself will be a physical indication that you’re on the right track.  Second, you will experience unexpected approvals and collaboration as you discuss and then implement your plan.  Synergies will occur and progress will be made quicker and more easily than you had imagined.  Keep a log of such experiences and adjust your plan based on those experiences…and experience accelerated success in 2019. 

Wishing you all the best as you begin to collaborate with the Field. Enjoy the ride!

The Beginning

Well, this is it: my first full blog entry as an author.  After more than 29 years working in corporate settings in the data analytics arena, I am entering the world of being a writer.  My first book is called Leverage the Field for Success — Using Quantum Reality to Succeed in the Corporate World.  It starts by laying out the science-based evidence of what’s known as the “zero-point field” or the “universal energy field” and how that field connects everything in the universe.  The bulk of the book is then focused on how we can use the Field to our advantage, detailing techniques that will support our personal success, the success of our teams, and the success of the larger organization.

I was inspired to write the book four years ago on the morning of July 31, 2014.  As I showered, shaved and got ready for work (I was in a corporate studio apartment just outside DC), ideas and concepts started swirling in my head around three main topics:  quantum physics, corporate best practices, and my own professional experiences (successes and failures).  But this was not a chaotic swirling:  connections were being made between all three areas with such speed and clarity that my head felt as if it was light and spinning.

This “swirling experience” had a sense of urgency.  I started scribbling words and phrases on the back of an envelope.  At the end of the day, I reviewed and grouped the scribbles into 11 distinct concepts and thought, “Wow – these could be chapters of a book.” But how does one write a book?  I was a data analyst, not a writer.  I decided to just sit down and start writing what came to me. I was commuting to DC from Chicago five days a week, so I had time to write on weekday evenings in the small high-rise apartment in Silver Spring, MD.

Three and a half weeks later I had 15 chapters of well-defined concepts, and six weeks after that I finished the first draft. I felt immensely satisfied for a day or so…and then went promptly into a five-week depression. In hindsight, I knew on a deep level that I had accomplished something significant, something that would ultimately change the course of my life and the lives of my wife and two children.

However, with wonderful positive change comes the departure of old, familiar ways of life.  While it was fun and exciting to write and finish that first draft, it was also sad to feel that a part of my old life was passing.  These periods of feeling down after achieving milestones in the book’s writing became a regular, recognizable experience.  I call these experiences “mini-deaths”, and I am sure I will be writing about a such an experience in the not-too-distant future given the immense change that my life is currently going through.

Why?  Because learning how to tap into and use the Field can take you in completely unexpected directions.  Case in point:  I am currently unemployed and yet we are moving from the great city of Chicago to a small town in southern Illinois.  Interacting with the Field can be a bit like galloping on an Arabian horse at full speed:  It’s the thrill of a lifetime…but you better pay attention and hang on tight!

More later, and a wonderful day/evening to you.
