The events of 9-11 jarred Naveed Jamali into doing something more meaningful with his life.

VIDA is Spanish for life. It is also an acronym for a tool I use to help clients focus on improvement:
As a daily 5-minute exercise,
- Visualize what you want your life to be
- Get Inspired (borrow inspiration online if you have to)
- Define your Direction with at least one action step
- Analyze what is working and what’s not
Prepare for lift-off.
