Episode Show Notes

We all want to lead lives of purpose, to feel like we are achieving something and moving toward some clear goal. But unfortunately, many of us find this hard to do. In our increasingly fast-paced and complex lives, there are so many things vying for our time and attention that we can easily get caught up in the day-to-day stresses of life and lose sight of the bigger picture. These things add up to form what we call The Drift.

The Drift is a subtle force that constantly threatens to pull us off course in our lives and leadership, and if we’re not careful, we can end up in a place where we never intended to be. Join us as we explore how, through awareness and intentional planning, you can stop drifting and achieve the results you want in both your life and your leadership.
