Here is what I see:
Demands on You are Up.
The demands on your time, energy and focus have gone up this year versus last year.
But the reality is, the demands on you will go up EVERY year until the day you choose to stop working. This is exciting, because you’re playing bigger games.
Yet also troubling for the following reason…
While you continue to meet those increasing demands (your productivity is at an all-time high!), you’ve most likely sacrificed one or many critical parts of your life. Maybe you’ve sacrificed your own personal health (physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually), your relationships (partners, spouses, children, socially, dating) or your own personal passions (adventure, creativity, travel, hobbies).
Your Sacrifices Are Up.
Restless and Drifting.
Continued sacrifice isn’t sustainable. That system will break, and maybe it has already. That’s why I hear high-achievers constantly tell me they’re feeling increasingly ambivalent about the work and life they once loved. Perhaps you’re starting to feel restless in the life you’ve created for yourself. Maybe even though on paper everything is great, when you look out at your future, it’s hard to pinpoint what truly energizes you. Maybe…you’re drifting.
You don’t have to live a life of drift. You can Design a Future you can’t wait to live into. How the best get better is to ALIGN the most critical areas of work and life. This requires a process of Awakening to your current limiting habits and beliefs, Disrupting yourself and Designing your future. This is what I teach individuals, teams and businesses.
Break Free from Drift.
