I’ve always been a restless soul. 

I’ve lost count of the number of changes I went through. 

Inside and outside.

Sometimes those changes were thrust upon me by external events. Most of the time, it was an inner calling—a sense of discomfort, like a lobster in too tight a skin.

Some changes led to success and joy, others to failure and pain. But all of them helped me become who I am. 

And I’m happy with the result.

The last few years, in particular, have been phenomenal on many levels.

I found a new path that integrates my inner and outer work. 

I learned new skills and unlearned some others that were limiting me.

I travelled the world, met new people, developed new connections, discovered new soulmates and rediscovered old ones.

I worked on projects that helped me see the infinite potential of human beings.

I started partnerships that go way beyond mere working together.

I also published my first book, realising my dream of becoming an author.

However, in these slowing down summer weeks, I can feel my restless soul awakening again. A voice telling me that there is more in me than what I believe I’m capable of.

A calling to innovate myself so I can make a more significant impact in the world.

I feel a growing sense that a massive profound transformation in the world is coming. And it is inevitable. I can see signs everywhere.

The question is not if such a change is going to happen. 

The question for me is, what role am I called to play in this change?

Not an easy question, indeed. 

But I know that the only way to find my answer is by innovating myself. The external outcome will be a reflection of the inner work.

Luckily for me, I co-wrote a book that offers a map that helps find an answer to that question. Even more, it also provides a guide to manifest that answer into the world.

So, now it is time for me to walk my talk and answer my calling to adventure.

The second step of the Innovator’s Journey is called Crossing the Departure Threshold, and it’s all about committing to change. 

This post is my declaration of intent, my commitment to change.

I don’t know where this journey will lead me. 

I just know that it’s time to leave behind my fears of not being ready or good enough and begin this new journey.

I’ll share my progress on my daily apples.
