Lessons from the Show
Susanne talked to us about her life and career and the transition she has been going through and offered us many wonderful lessons that point us towards an authentic, happy and fulfilling life and career including:
- It’s easy to get trapped in the past and the future as we work for our clients, and to forget about where we are right now;
- Susanne reflected back on the sense of inner peace that emerged after the 2008 crash happened. As Chuck Palahniuk wrote, “it’s only when you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything”;
- Happiness and contentment can only emerge when we are embracing our whole life, not overly-focusing on one area…like our career!
