Balance is impossible to find. There are always challenges and unexpected responsibilities that throw off this fictional ideal. There is no perfect ratio of work life and home life that will magically solve your problems.
Consonance, however, is achievable. Consonance is when all of the parts of your life line up for the same purpose. If the person you are at work is the same person you are at home, you have more of yourself to give. Stop trying to be all things to all people and instead start to live limitlessly.
To dive deeper into the idea of consonance, I’ve brought on speaker and author Laura Gassner Otting. Laura inspires people to push past the doubt and indecision that keep great ideas in limbo. Laura’s entrepreneurial edge has been well-honed over a 25-year career that started as a Presidential Appointee in Bill Clinton’s White House, where she helped shape AmeriCorps. Along the way, while serving on Hillary Clinton’s National Finance Committee, she was asked to do a TEDx talk which became so popular that it launched a speaking career.
Laura breaks down the idea of mastering the Four C’s: your calling, connection, contribution and control. To learn how to achieve a limitless life, listen to this episode now.
THE WARRIOR OF HERMIONE
“Build a career that doesn’t sit next to your life but works within your life .” - Laura Gassner OttingHighlights -
- You’re just not that important. Pick out the things where you are that important and double down.
- Success depends on four C’s: calling, connection, contribution and control.
- It’s not how we achieve success, it’s how we define success.
- Consonance: when the what-you-do matches the who-you-are.
- The space between what you want to do and what you’re qualified to do is your calling.
- Each and every one of us has multitudes inside us. To live “limitless,” you have to understand what matters to you.
