When Nothing is Enough

Apr 08, 2016

“I’ve got nothin’.” Those were the words of one of my group coaching client’s a few years ago. We were seated around a conference table. All of her co-workers had shared in our coaching circle and she didn’t have anything to add. Simple as that. At the time, I was surprised by the abruptness of her declaration. Yet I appreciated her straight- forward manner and her honesty that day.

Her words have rang true for me over these past weeks. Eight of them to be exact. No need to take up space in a blog when I didn’t have much to say. I’ve also had some time to reflect on a few things in that space of nothingness. I’ll be sharing those insights in the days ahead. In the meantime, I share this wisdom from one of my favorite photographers, Ansel Adams

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.
When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
