Nine years ago, I took a couple of steps that many perceived as risky. The truth is, it would have been riskier for me emotionally, physically, professionally to stay on that trajectory. I have never looked back.
It’s not that things were horrible. I enjoyed my corporate career; I had a long-term marriage; I was financially “secure”. But those roles were over and it was time to make changes.
Dan Blank, who I have had the honour of having as an instructor, articulates his experience with life-changing actions — and the rewards he’s living as a result. Since he expresses it much more eloquently than I could, I urge you to read his post. It provides substance for year-end reflection and planning.
