Helping Busy Professionals with Creative Spirits Go from Chaos to Calm
As an accomplished professional you have worked hard to get where you are. You know how to grow your business or lead your team what you want for things to get done to your high standards without the mad dash to get through your to do list so:
- there is time for your personal interests too.
- you have a clear head so you can think and connect with what you want.
- you rekindle your hope, mojo, or swagger especially in the middle of chaos.
- you balance your long term professional, vision, relationships or projects while managing the realities that change-day to day.
What I see gets in the way is letting the urgency of day to day realities drown out your long term thinking and pursuing what you really want, from deep in the marrow of you bones. What we spend time on is what we commit to- the more time invested the deeper the commitment. What would make your life, or your work, or go big both, deeply meaningful to you? What shows up in yours should be a reflection of what you value most. What I do is help you find really practical ways to make the most of your time and resources, so you feel you are living your extraordinary life without compromise.
Are you busy professional with a creative spirit ready to go from chaos to calm? To balance cultivating long term desires while the managing changing daily needs of work? I understand the complexities and snags in making that "standard operating procedure". It can be done and when you do the rewards are great. You develop a business that sustains and inspires, instead of draining you. You stop the mad dash to get through your to do list, have a clear head so you can think and connect to what you want and need to do to keep moving forward. You have and take the time to attend to personal needs and seek out that enrich you so you have a real life, one full of these things that matter most, not just a mind-numbing trek on the treadmill.
The more deeply anchored in who you are at your core and what brings the real meaning to your life, the more energy you have to push forward. You can put your best work forth and make a lasting impact by using your signature strengths, your unique attributes, and most deeply held values in service of your big picture. Whether your work is as a solo business owner, in the c-suite, as an employee or at home. You get the outcomes you want when you take specific actions that build from your strengths, are supported by your attitude and are rooted in the callings of your heart. Getting to really big outcomes takes nerve. Nerve comes from being clear and unwavering about what you want most so that it becomes a regular part of your day.
