While hiking recently in Sedona State Park I came to a small bridge that crosses over Oak Creek. At about the midpoint I sat down and just observed the flow of the water against the fall colors and the bright blue sky. This visual feast was accompanied by the incredible music of the briskly moving water; a perfect combination of elements for a moment of reflection and consideration.

I captured about a minute of the experience on video and invite you to enjoy it for your own purposes. While it’s certainly not the same as being there in person I do think you will find in it a helpful rhythm and flow that may serve to settle you, calm you and perhaps even restore you a little.

You see, I am more convinced than ever – through observation of my own tendencies as much as from what I see in leaders with whom I work – that it is in stopping the action, even for a moment, that we unlock the possibility of new learning.

As you take a moment to experience Oak Creek yourself I invite you to use it in whatever way is most useful to you. Maybe you just need a minute to veg out. Perhaps you are in the grip of a question that gets more knotted the more you struggle with it. Maybe you are hunched at your desk and realize you’ve been holding that same position for the entire day…or week…or year.

Or do you need to simply refresh yourself?

Imagine taking a handful of that moving water, splashing it on your face and waking up again to the absolute power and possibility of your life.
