I was interviewed by social entrepreneur, Dani Trudeau, on Working for Progress, a podcast that connects us all through conversations about how we craft our working lives and make progress for ourselves and others.
In this episode, I talk about my personal struggles and growth in searching for my place in the world over the last 25 years, as I globetrotted and career-hopped under the taunts of a fierce inner critic until I finally started learning how to live in harmony with myself – to like myself, in fact.
We talk about:
- living and working in alignment with what matters to us
- anxiety and depression in conforming and performing
- taking risks and knowing when to quit
- decoupling self-value from achievement
- awe, human connection and being yourself
- stepping out of the fast lane
- doing our best for others by taking care of ourselves
I felt like I’d leapt off a cliff…It was painful and scary and uncomfortable, which sounds like I’m saying don’t do it. In retrospect though, that was the career path. I started to gleefully leap off, as I realised it wasn’t an abyss.
