As I was getting ready to pen down my thoughts & resolutions for the upcoming New Year, like most of us, I heard a podcast by my dear friend and our long-standing client, Karen Colligan – Passion and Work, Is it possible? Karen revokes a common saying you’ll come across – live your life with passion and success will follow. Initially, it took me by surprise because as an individual I have always relied on ‘passion’ for work or personal growth. This single sentiment has been the cornerstone of my being. But a short exercise in the podcast helped me create a new ‘Circle of Life’. The drill pushed me to think beyond ‘passion’ and about other aspects of my life that I do love but may have neglected. The outcome of this exercise is to pause and rethink your approach towards your life. I am amazed and surprised how this short exercise has pushed me to get out my comfort zone and rethink about my career, personal, health, and spiritual goals.
