By the time we’re down to making a circle in one second, we’re operating like magic. There is kinesthetic energy and excitement in the room. I wrap up by asking the group to qualify the difference between the first circle we made in roughly ten seconds and the final one in one second. And then I introduce a quote by one of my favorite musical theater composers, Leonard Bernstein, who said, “To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time.” What if we do not give ourselves enough time? Instead, we challenge ourselves to simply create with immediacy and intention. There is no risk of messing up making a circle. Note that I’m not asking us to make the “perfect” circle. The circle can be a bit clumped on one side, or oblong, or elliptical. None of that matters. The only thing matters is making the circle, aka making a choice, without hesitation or fear.
