Life’s Too Short – Love Your Career or Change it! 2 Night workshop

Think about all the time you spend at the office, on the phone, working with colleagues, attending meetings, etc, etc.


Do you love it?

If you don’t love waking up and going to work every morning, maybe it’s time you made some changes. After all, life is too short to not love your job. Now you may be thinking that having a great job and loving what you do is more like a dream for those ‘lucky’ people. But loving your job can be more than just a dream, it can be a reality. Putting all your time and energy into something that doesn’t bring you some sort of happiness is grueling and more damaging than you think. After all, chances are you spend more time at work than with your friends and family or working on hobbies.

Taming Your Whirlwind Life Workshop

Take care of your life, you only have one!

In this intense exploration of understanding why we do the things we do, you’ll identify your top values, learn a new formula for managing your choices, and walk away with a formula for taming the whirlwind tunnel syndrome. “The all of the time and sometimes most of the time-shuffling, shifting, chasing, running on over drive, so you can catch up syndrome!
