It's Wednesday. Wake up. It's time to orchestrate your weekend. I know you are tired, but people are counting on you. Your significant other needs some romantic time. Your kids need to be exposed to new experiences. Your friend needs to meet for a cup of coffee or a beer- don't forget to call. And you need some time to develop that passion that you have been feeling. Some you time.
None of this stuff will happen if you don't focus. If you just let he weekend go any old way- it will be lost. Not that every aspect of it needs to be planned. There will be plenty of room for spontaneity. You just need to set the stage.
You have been given hints of what you can orchestrate. The future participants themselves have alluded to the things they are needing. In the middle of your coworker's boring story, he mentioned an event that would be perfect. There is an outdoor hockey game. The Kodo drummers are coming. The symphony is playing Beethoven's Ninth. All it takes is a little thought- on the drive into work. Get online when you take a break and explore your idea. There is something big that is trying to happen.
Speaking of Beethoven's Ninth, you are the conductor. If you can just orchestrate it, and then get out of its way- it will unfold into shared experiences. They will add untold richness to your loved one's lives. And to yours. It will expose them to things that they would not have otherwise known. Someday they will draw on that experience. It will open up the world to them.
And all it takes is a little thought and consideration. Some orchestration. It is up to you. Are you going to do it?
