ACCELERATING GROWTH of conscious awareness SERIES

Right action requires clarity and focus. It requires some stillness—sitting with the questions. One generative question may provide the opening you seek.

Sometimes, one good take-away can clear away the fog of uncertainty and renew your resolve. It’s looking increasingly clear that we’re now running a marathon instead of a sprint. Your agility, adaptability, and resilience will be tested…perhaps like never before. That’s why illuminating strengths—yours personally and the best of what is all around you—is essential to your success. Let’s sit together with a question…and see what emerges.
