I have achieved and still in pursuit of every dream I set my mind to, including graduating from college, becoming a principal, driving across the country, learning many hobbies, traveling to out the country, falling deeply in love, creating a beautiful family, and identifying my life purpose, to name but a few.
With over 40 yrs experience in the educational industry. I am just as passionate today, as I was my first day about developing tomorrow’s personal and professional leaders. If we want a different result we must be willing to first take a different action. With the near epidemic proportions of unhappy employees, the need for personal and professional integration has never been more imminent. Note that I didn’t say work/life balance; I believe such a thing is both impossible and undesirable for we spend a disproportionate amount of our time working. Instead, the goal is to integrate all aspects of life so we thrive at our careers & our personal lives equally as well, where we aren’t leaving a part of us behind as we spend our days at work wishing we were somewhere else… anywhere else; or trying to be home with our children while distracted by the things not getting done at work. Instead of balance, it’s the power of presence we seek.
