As our personal and professional lives move on, they require a parallel evolution of the principal participants – Ourselves.
Sometimes the evolution is forced, other times it comes naturally. But by far, the most serendipitous is the evolution that happens seamlessly – no pain, no change, no cost – just growth. It is also the most elusive. Lucky are those that see it first-hand, luckier still are those of us that experience it.
I recently spoke about Work/Life Balance – or more specifically, the MYTH that is Work/Life Balance. The feedback was unanimous – the message had resonated! What is more, it had transcended generations. That was perhaps the most rewarding of all the accolades I received. That Gen Xers and Millenials, Baby Boomers and Gen-Y alike, sought me out to say “I am you! You are me!”
To be able to blur the lines between generations, (not to mention cultures) each one of us at a different milestone of our personal and professional evolution and offer a message that is so universal was nothing short of my own serendipitous evolution as a contributor (who knew?!?).
That the listeners found themselves in my contribution is gravy!
