Musings | Energy
The other week on NPR there was a wonderful piece about the Ace Hotel and the crowd that hangs out there during the day. Sipping lattes, sporting laptops and brainstorming ideas… It is a space filled with people determined to accomplish all things big, small and ridiculous. The Ace Hotel folks spoke about how they need to maintain the level of energy in order for the hotel to keep its momentum: that energy attracts more energy. Maybe 12th grade physics and Newton’s first law of motion is finally resonating, but this rang so true to me. We all need to have friends that move us as well calm us. We need to surround ourselves with things and people that keep us driven and inspired. We need to participate in things that keep us from being sedentary and encourage us to be part of things that will allow us to look back with a sense of satisfaction.
