I am so excited to announce that my book, Stop Settling, Settle Smart, is officially launching on Amazon on February 5th! In preparation for that, I wanted to do a short series introducing some of the major themes and topics that will appear in the book. And to start, the first concept is turning carbon into diamond, or pulling out of the unsustainable work-life balance model and into the polished and unique Stop Settling method in order to Settle Smart.
Passion drives most of us. For some of us, it may be our work, for others, it may be outside of career. Either way, we are all passionate about something. And that passion should be nurtured and grown but it is very easy to burn out doing something you love.
Your core values are how you define yourself. They are your non-negotiables and deal breakers. Your line in the sand. To be a successful leader, your individual and leadership core values must be absolute and shift rarely, if ever. Only after some deep self-reflection and/or guidance, will you be ready to commit to any core value. Your individual core values are the essence of who you are: mind, body, and soul.
