Transitioning into a Meaningful LIFE (VIDA)

617yjmJks+L._SL300_

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

His entertaining, down-to-earth story reminded me how common it is to coast along, following a prescribed path from thing to thing to thing without really discovering a passionate path toward contribution. Naveed’s life radically changed when he fully surrendered to this pursuit. So will ours.

VIDA is Spanish for life. It is also an acronym for a tool I use to help clients focus on improvement:

V-Vision

I- Inspiration

D-Direction

A-Analysis

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.
