Who is the CEO of your life? Who is the boss? Who calls the shots?
We admire wealth and power, people “in control”. We often feel we are victims of life’s circumstance.
You are not alone. A fly on the wall of a room full of the rich and powerful, would observe a fair number of them viewing themselves as victims. They’d be richer or more powerful, if only…
The model is simple. The corporation running the business of your life is failing, it is losing money and market share, even you aren’t happy working there. The board of directors, (you) with the help of the board of advisors (us), has begun the search for a new Chief Executive Officer.
At the end of the day you will begin to see that you are the best, in fact the only candidate for that job. You will leave with insights, and a practical exercise to help keep you on track, long after the day over.
10:00 -11:15 – Self-perception examined
Who am I? Who do others believe I am?
How does this differ from the person I imagined I’d become?
11:30- 1:00 – The Disconnect explored
What is the difference between who we are and who we imagined we would become ?
Objectively we will examine the obstacles to reaching our “ideal” self: our education, the environment in which we live, the sad state of the economy and whatever else you observe.
We will briefly, acknowledge that times are tough. The world is a mess and opportunity seems limited.
Once Identified, we will reframe these obstacles, re-design the perception of our circumstances (the present) and choose to become something other than the “story of our lives” (the past).
1:00 – 2:15 pm Lunch
A working lunch, listening to music. Individually, in pairs or in small groups we will listen to music. Your favourite music.
Songs that make you feel ecstatically happy, songs that catapult you back to a safe place or a sad one. A song that reminds you of a difficult time in your life, perhaps a turning point.
Think like Einstein! “No problem is ever solved by the same mind that created it.”
We will use the insights gleaned from the morning to choose a different mindset to rethink our stories. No one will be asked to share their stories, but you may.
Associating specific music with a new and emerging version of your story will “bookmark” the new chapter.
Reframing past experiences so that we live in the “anything’s possible” of today – rather than the past “story of our lives” takes exercise. New exercises routines require new soundtracks. A new playlist helps.
