what would excite me?


This wise question is something that I’m using in my career more and more often. Now that most of my old goals have been replaced with service, the excitement factor is my guide for future projects.

In fact, I have a very exciting new addition to my pretirement which I hope to share later this spring. It began as a crazy little idea which got me so freaking excited that I had to see if it was possible. So far things are looking good and I look forward to debuting the project if all goes well!

    I have had many clients feel the exact same way about their day jobs. It’s pretty (and unfortunately) common.

    I hope the excitement factor can help you push through and find the energy you need for your next steps.

    Yes. I love that. Thinking of it in terms of “what do I want to do with my life” is such a hard question to answer….but “what excites me” is such an easy question to answer and a great place to start! I love it. Thank you!!
