Are you passionate about your work? If not, can you remember a time when you were?
Passion is a game-changer. When you're passionate, work doesn't feel like work. When you find the passion, your fuel and your drive come from a different place. Passion provides a limitless source of energy and enthusiasm. Work is joyful.
What happens when the passion fades? Work becomes work. It becomes something you have to do, for all the wrong reasons.
What causes the passion to fade? For many, it's something that I call professional drift. It happens slowly, usually over the course of many years. One thing leads to another and eventually you find yourself doing work that isn't really the right work for you.
That's where your superpower comes in. When you know your superpower with absolute certainty and total clarity, you're able to notice when you've drifted off course. You'll be able to make the...
There’s no question that superpower design is an individual journey and many of the benefits of doing your superpower design work are realized at the individual level. You’ve likely heard me talk about these benefits already. Better results. Better relationships. More impact. And an increased feeling of authenticity.
But the real potential of the superpower concept, in my opinion, comes when it’s applied to the organization level. In the book, this is what I call … the Final Frontier. I use a quote from basketball coach Phil Jackson … the strength of the team is each individual member and the strength of each individual member is the team.
Imagine being on a team where everyone not only knew your superpower, but also had a deep appreciation for it. Imagine if they knew the best ways to get the best from you. Imagine if your boss knew this. How much more effective could you...
I’m so excited to announce the launch of my new book. Superpower 5.0. If you haven’t already, check out the sweet cover. That was designed by my old friend, the very talented, John Bulmer. If you don’t know John, check out his work, he’s quite the renaissance man.
And Yes, I launched the book on my birthday. With the 5/5 date and the book title, it was too good to pass up. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to give me a huge present! I actually gave myself a present today…my first real starbucks (drive through of course) in over a month! I’m quite proud of myself.
I’m actually very proud of this book, too. I think you’re going to love it. It’s super easy to read and it’s packed with fantastic ideas and insights for helping you to discover your superpower. If you think you already know your superpower, this book will help you get more out of it....
Today, I have an exciting announcement: After more than a year of research interviews and writing, my second full-length book will launch on 5.5.2020.
The book is called Superpower 5.0: The 5-Point Plan to Develop the Best Version of Yourself. This book is a follow-up to my first book, Never Too Late: Get Unstuck, Escape Mediocrity, and Design a Life You Love, which was a #1 New Release and Best Seller on Amazon.
Superpower 5.0 provides a deep dive into one of the core concepts of Life Design, the idea that each of us has unique superpower. I believe that Superpower 5.0 is the most accessible and practical guide for unlocking your ultimate potential. The book draws upon proven techniques for identifying, applying, and optimizing your unique superpower. It includes dozens of real-life examples and insights that I’ve never shared before.
But make no mistake, Superpower 5.0 doesn’t contain a lot of fluff. ...
