Why a blog about Business, Buddhism and Creativity? Well, they are three things that I’m currently not so good at, but will need to be as I set up my own creative web business based on ethical principles culled from Buddhism.
In the autumn of 2010, I will set up my own business to help charities, creative organisations and the cultural sector make the most of the web and new technologies in fulfilling their own aims and ambitions.
As a student of Buddhism, yoga and meditation, I’m keen to put the philosophies I’ve learned over the years into action.
This blog is a challenge to myself to run my new business according to the principles I’ve learned from Tibetan Buddhism, and to share the results of that approach with others.
It’s also a way for me to share my random thoughts on Buddhism, business, technology and the importance of meaningless creativity.
In another more immediate way, the blog will also allow me to test out working with the WordPress platform and other new technologies (I’m not trying to win any awards here!).
Please excuse the indulgence, but I hope that this blog will be of relevance to others – whether you are a frustrated artist, starting your own business, trying to master meditation, or embarking on your own adventures in Web 2.0.
As Master Oogway reminds us in Kung Fu Panda, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called ‘the present'”.
