How do you build the career and life you want—especially with chaos swirling around you, throwing out roadblocks at every turn. Only when you understand that the world isn’t set up to optimize, can you begin the journey to uncover your best and lead your life with intention.
Bottom line: life is the ultimate experience model. You don’t come with an operating manual that tells you how to be your best. You just have to figure it out to find the things that work. And the discovery is never done. You have to stay engaged, curious and willing to admit you don’t know everything, so you can learn more to be your best.
Dedicating yourself to the lifelong discipline of practice outlined in GROUNDED allows you to see what works and most importantly stay in tune with what grounds you at every turn of your journey. The questions change as people move through their lives. In their twenties, people wonder where to begin. In their thirties, people wonder if they are headed in the right direction. In their forties, they may begin to wonder if this is all there is. And in their fifties and beyond, they wonder what should happen in the next chapter.
This notion of being grounded isn’t about age, it’s about altitude. Your life will have impact. Choices will be made. GROUNDED is dedicated to building the skill so you decide, not someone else. Your life is simply too important to leave it to chance. And if you choose to lead others, GROUNDED is dedicated to inspiring others to be their best because you have done the work to understand how to lead first yourself and now others.
