I recently met with a client who had suffered a stroke. In order to understand him better and develop a treatment plan that would be meaningful for him, I asked him if he had a mentor that had guided him in his business ventures. He told me Frank Lloyd Wright. This week, I have spent a lot of time researching this iconic figure to come up with a treatment program that would be motivating and meaningful. What I learned about Frank Lloyd Wright will stay with me forever. What a risk taker! What a non-conformist! He was such a revolutionary thinker in fact, that Ayn Rand wrote the Fountainhead (my favourite book of all time), basing the main character (Howard Roark) on Frank Lloyd Wright’s non-conformity and individuality. I absolutely love my work! Developing a treatment plan to help my client led me to learn about a person who has re-ignited that flame in me. You know the one – it is the flame that inspires you to take risks and fail, because one day, the risk will pan out.
