Everyone will have 15 minutes of fame, said Warhol… plug in for yours

The world that Andy Warhol predicted in ’68 when he said that eventually, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes, is here…

You can tweet it, post it, blog it, stream it and there are enough people reading and watching for your 15 minutes to be had by you….

It begs the question, what do you want to do with your 15 minutes?

Of course there are super famous people in the world like Oprah, but I love that people like CNN hero Yohannes Gebregeorgi from Ethiopia got his because he brought the world of books to his country’s children.

You would have never heard of him if it weren’t for this new world of instant connectedness we live in (much less know how to pronounce his name!)

Therefore it is of utmost importance, I mean critical, that you also feel connected – to other people, yourself, and what you care about.  My reasoning is this, if you are feeling disjointed, disconnected, or like there is something missing between you and another or you and yourself, take the time and find out what is in the way.

Or else you won’t claim your 15 minutes.

Your time when the world’s all ears for what you have to say.

And you do have something to say.

Based on your very unique experience of being here, in this skin bag, trying to figure it all out.

You have so much to teach.

You have so much to share.

As much as you let me guide you through coaching, I learn something every time I speak to you.

Make sure you speak.

And if you fall on your face or fall apart or flub your 15, we’ll pick up the pieces together.  I think that Warhol’s 15 minutes have become exponential and you can have as many go’s at it as you want.

So speak.

Love always,

Jo

    This is perfect…because I haven’t handed in my week’s end report that was due last night …because I’m feeling bad about not getting everything done…and I don’t feel like doing anything right now. I’m feeling disconnected from me and what makes me ME…and what I want to say about that on stage.
    I need some inspiration.
    I need to CREATE some inspiration for myself.
    I need to go read that article about the woman in Africa who went from being a battered wife to a PhD in the US.
    I need to get home so that I can exercise.
