This week I was thinking about what I wanted to tackle for this week’s radio show. All of the logical choices (interviews, trend stories, etc.) didn’t feel right, so I started thinking about what issues were the most relevant and prevalent in my life and the lives of people around me right now. More than anything, I have been blown away by how dedicated all of my friends (and many of my co-workers) have been to making their biggest dreams a reality. From buying homes and taking more time off to starting new businesses and learning new skills/trades, the people around me have been inspiring me to no end with their (successful!) attempts to balance work and life. Taking cues from their techniques- and including some of my own- I decided to dedicate this week’s show to Living The Life You Want To Live: Big Steps and Small Changes to turn Dreams into Reality.
I was thrilled to be joined by my partner in crime/work/friendship, Amy Azzarito. Amy has always inspired me with her enthusiasm for trying new things, and I’ve seen first-hand just how much her dedication to a happy life has paid off both at home and at work. Together we shared our Top 4 Tips for Living The Life You Want To Live and our Top 4 Pitfalls to Avoid (and how to avoid them). I think we could have talked about this for hours (we got so into it I forgot to take a station break, whoops!) and it just goes to show that your happiness at home is just as important as the things you put inside it. I hope this will inspire or help anyone listening to devote time to life outside of work and put some practices into place to ensure that your dreams in life get as much attention as your dreams in the office. xo, grace
*Amy and I promised to share our vision boards on-air today, so here they are. We explain them- and their purpose- in the show. Also, here is the link to the Rejection Therapy story Amy references on-air.
