What People Are Saying:
"I had come to a point in my career and life where I was extremely competent and completely bored and miserable doing what I was good at.
I used to be passionate and creative, and motivated but somewhere along the way, that all stopped.
I was depressed and sleeping 12-14 hours a day, miserable and constantly exhausted, just existing.
Every new job became some version of the same old thing, and I figured I had to just grind it out till retirement, but I had no answer how anything would be different once I got there.
When I first heard about values and V.O.I.C.E., I was struck by something very different. I had done lots of personal and career development and management training around mission and values in the past.
Still, V.O.I.C.E. encapsulated something I had fundamentally missed along the way: that values are not some standard or morality or ideal, but plain and simple, what was valuable to me!
And that to the extent I was living, what was valuable to me would be the extent of my joy and enjoyment in life and, conversely, to the extent I was not, the level of frustration and futility I would be experiencing.
And if I did not know what was valuable to me, how could I ever evaluate a job or do anything in my life to consciously and purposefully feed the things that were valuable to me?
I saw values clearly as the rubric to evaluate and live a fulfilling life, unique to me. Without that simple understanding, I had wasted years arriving in the state of disillusionment, frustration, and futility I found myself living.
Having since spent the time to learn my values and get my V.O.I.C.E., every day is now full.
I have so much to do and so much inspiration I can hardly pack in the things that are meaningful to me that I am pursuing.
I go from dawn to dusk all days of the week and, for the first time in years, feel alive. I have turned a corner, and there is no looking back, living a life by design, no longer by happenstance".
