  1. heron  
    In this letter, I explore the metaphor of a heron overcoming self-doubt and resistance to take flight and follow its dreams. Though facing storms and setbacks, the Heron battles an inner voice of doubt, represented by a croaking frog, which it ultimately silences by devouring. It relates this to doing meaningful creative work by outlining principles from Steven Pressfield's 'The War of Art' and “Do the Work.” We must engage with resistance and persist despite difficulty to ship creative and entrepreneurial work. This letter also relates the Heron's journey to Le Guin's 'The Eye of the Heron'. Just as the Heron achieves flight through courage and determination, we realize our potential by battling resistance and completing our work.

  4. beyond introspection  
    The process, not the destination, is key to self-directed learning and growth. Intrinsic motivation, spontaneity, and creativity are nurtured through self-expression and art. Intuition, a powerful tool, emerges when the mind is trained to be open to spontaneous insights. It's a process of unlearning and expanding one's mental lexicon, ultimately leading to a deeper understanding of oneself and life's meaning. Autotelic experiences can be enhanced by embracing self-involvement and interacting with the world.

  5. what is introspection?  
    Embracing spontaneity and inner genius, we can reshape notions and know ourselves intimately. This self-knowledge lets us create our lives rather than follow others' expectations. Introspection through mindful inquiry illuminates our inner world. It helps us examine our beliefs, find our voice, and integrate our notions with outer reality. We can understand our roles and personalities, and the difference between our self-perception and others' views.

  6. what are us?  
    In today's society, objective facts eclipse our subjective inner wisdom and somatic knowledge. We conform to external norms rather than self-determining our values. Knowledge is pursued compulsively without changing the methods of inquiry. To grow, we must release rigid plans and preconceptions. By embracing spontaneity and our inner genius, we can reshape notions and know ourselves intimately. This self-knowledge allows us to create our lives rather than follow others' expectations.

  7. who is a good coach?  
    Coaching assumes clients possess emotional integration and focuses on creating the life they desire, not fixing problems. Effective coaching encourages clients to value themselves and set intrinsic, joy-filled goals. Coaches teach, but never impose their truths, allowing clients' self-realization. A mature coach nurtures self-actualization through awareness, responsibility, and authentic values. In contrast, younger, material-focused coaches prioritize winning, often causing dissatisfaction. Seasoned coaches prioritize nurturing, intuition, self-expression, and joy while aligning with clients' essence and remaining supportive observers.

  8. why coach introspection?  
    Introspection, while potentially yielding valuable self-knowledge, may also lead to self-obsession and chronic rumination. Our culture often emphasizes objectivity and causality, hindering a more open, phenomenological inquiry into ourselves. Shifting toward a "resolving" approach and embracing paradoxical ideas can offer a more constructive path to self-understanding.
