When your heart is on fire...
The historic times we live in have amplified a sense of purpose and inspiration in me and many of my clients. I’m doing work I love, that makes a difference, and on terms that work for me.
The Japanese call it Ikigai – the sweet spot between your passion, your strengths, what the world needs, and what the world will support and pay you for.
But there have been ups and downs.
Back in 2001, I was discovering the sweet spot of my career. I woke up one day and decided I’d go on a mission to Cuba to learn about their health system. I got to work and found an official sponsor to spend two months at the Cuban School of Public Health in Havana.
It had never been done before. Soon other medics joined and it became a little expedition! We even got into the national Cuban newspaper. The experience defined my career path and I felt pretty much set. The future was bright.
Fast forward ten years and that energy was starting to drain. I had jumped through the hoops and was as high up as I could be on the career ladder at that time. But something had been lost in translation. I was sitting at a table with family when I heard myself say: I don’t know how to relax.
I hadn’t taken time off for 18 months. Or several years depending on how you count…
Despite having broken several glass ceilings, I felt like I didn’t deserve to take time off.
I was plagued by doubts and fears about dropping the ball and falling behind. And, I was starting to feel dead inside…
I began to realise I wasn’t alone: 85% of people feel disengaged from work, globally.
The good news is that we can break through these disempowering doubts and fears, drop into the sweet spot, and channel our energy sustainably and effectively.
I found my way back.
And I’m here to support you in protecting and making the most of your energy even in tough times.
