But let me get real with you.

The longer I’ve worked with high performing individuals and organizations, the more I see a need that goes way beyond an organized inbox or well-structured calendar.

Once I help my clients out of the swirl of overwhelm, there often remains a deep hunger for something else…what?

It took a frigid meditation retreat in the cold northern woods of Massachusetts to reveal the answer. Four days of quiet introspection was a new experience for me. With everything from my mobile device to simple dinner table conversation stripped away, there was no more hiding.

Everything I had been using my busyness to avoid was now staring right back at me.

After four days spent in silence, I realized something profound:

When our frenetic busyness subsides and we allow ourselves to experience deep peace and quiet, something powerful happens – we create an opening, a space that enables us to move beyond busy and awaken to our true purpose and potential, the why of our lives.

Right now, we lean heavily on performance metrics, we live to “get through” that next conference call, and we talk about what we “did” last year in numbers and figures and statistics. But, seriously, is that really what you did last year?

It is time to redesign the way we work, to see beyond

output and metrics.

What did you create, launch, grow or build? What did that new product line inspire? What did those sales make possible? What did you make possible? What positive – or negative – change did you affect?  What was the impact of your actions – on your community, your loved ones, your soul?
