These beautiful creatures are effective decision making tools.
By checking if one should do a task/goal/adventure based on butterflies. In the stomach.
I heard a remarkable toastmasters speech last week. The speaker spoke about an experience she felt afraid to do and asked, "If you don't get butterflies in the stomach, is it worth it?"
I loved it instantly. Beautiful way to assess a situation and turn fear into excitement.
What have I done this year where I felt like I had butterflies?
As intense as 2019 has been so far, there are only two things remotely exciting that I had done this year.
That is LOW.
I would like to experience butterflies at the rate of one per week. For a grand total of 40 butterflies for the rest of 2019.
So going forward, I will deliberately look for things that will involve me experiencing butterflies.
Before I decide to do something - I will have a quick butterfly check.
If the task involves butterflies, it will get more weight - until I complete at least one per week.
If this experiment leads to interesting experiences, I will share the details here.
So when was the last time you felt butterflies?
