End of Summer Vacations and the Need for Inspiration!

It is that time of the year again. The Fall season is upon us and with it, end of vacation for many professionals. Time for a dose of reality and time to get to work. Right? But what if you are finding yourself falling into the same old habits and feeling your career is lacking the luster it once had?

Kids seem to have a voracious appetite for learning. You notice a certain amount of joy in them as they master new skills and go about life without much hesitation. Could it be that as adults and lifelong learners* we too can find joy in learning? With this joy comes the motivation to take that extra step needed to invigorate our work life.

Read on if this blog is resonating with you and you are wondering where to start!
