Sharing a thought from Kore Koubourlis, Founder of The Essential Group (https://www.the-essential-group.com/about/) and speaker at The Koa Club’s recent Follow My Lead Series event on Professional Velocity:
“Autumn is such a gorgeous time of year for personal reflection, level-setting, and coming home to your goals. This week, try to find some time to think about what you’re trying to do in the world. And not just the in-your-face work results you are trying to achieve or the tactical things in front of you demanding your attention. What I’m talking about here is, make sure you find some time to identify your own bigger picture — ask: what do I want for this season, this relationship, this role? How do I want to be seen? In what direction am I truly wanting to point myself? What is calling to me? – and then ask, Is what I’m doing today working to get me closer to that? If not, make a plan to try something new that might bring about a different result. Small shifts can make a world of difference.”
