December 1, 2021 – JOLT – An Antidote to The Great Resignation?

“Life begins when we begin, and each day we ought to be born again.”

Sterling W. Sill


For those who’ve heard of or entertained. . .

the idea of “The Great Resignation” — as this unique period of working life has been deemed — this next month and standard New Years rituals (personal reflections, resolutions, intention-setting, etc.) should be anything but standard. There’s nothing holy about resignation. Let’s desecrate it!

If ever there was a time for deeper awareness of one’s career and life-purpose juices being squeezed out and imbibed with abandon, this is that time.

Sure, there’s a lot of hooplah to come around the festivities of the season. Yet, there’s no reason to wait to get a leg up on one’s repurposing toward a bigger, bolder and better new year until one is in recovery mode from holiday partying. Start that sober repurposing plan now!

Getting ahead of the game by getting your introspective evaluation and consciously constructed game plan in place before the parties can leave you enjoying the holidays even more because you already know what’s coming next: you’re boots are ready to hit the ground on Jan 1.

To support that proactive and even pre-emptive retailiatory strike on any foggy start to your upcoming New Year, enjoy a holiday discount on a few of my most popular career and life-purpose juicing sessions for the next 3 weeks:
