Can you believe life can be different? What would life be like if… we rarely argued with one another? we had minds that were clear and calm and focused in the present? we not only had time to attend to our own goals but also to be kind to others? we courageously took action on new projects and pushed their comfort...

You Are Trapped

We’re all in this together… When I worked with Phil Lawler on setting the trajectory for him to have a more fulfilling life, we worked on everything from tackling work projects as an IT professional to reading his backlog of books to applying to business school.
