You know, what were some of the big takeaways for you today? If you have a last lingering question, ask it now because this is the last thing we're gonna do. So, any questions, if you've got 'em, including from the online community? Derek. I'd say definitely, once you make a choice to move on from that choice and then continue to adapt from the choice that you actually make. So, really allowing yourself to be free of the decisions that you make. Yeah, reality's a really cool place, might as well just stick with that. Others, yeah? Easy way to identify gravity problems. Gravity problems, okay. Great, yes, defy gravity, it's fun. I was gonna say the power of, oh sorry, the power of EQ, and the intelligence of your gut. Yeah. Yeah. Oh a quick tip on that one I forgot to mention. How many of you have had the experience of you walk up, you got a life partner, you got a really good friend, a close colleague, and you go, "You know, I've finally made a "decision, I finally made...
a decision, "we're gonna sell the beach house. "Or we're gonna get the Labradoodle." Or whatever it is. And the person says, "Well, finally. "I've known you were gonna do that for three weeks." (laughter) You know, you all had that experience? What's going on there? And you go, "What? You can't have known, "I mean, I just came to this decision." Go, "Yeah, you just came to this decision, "a month ago." What's going on there is, you're broadcasting what your EQ knows, what that wisdom center knows, is evident in you and in your behavior and in the way you've been talking about it. But your left brain doesn't give it permission to say so yet. Your left brain finally came up with a rationalization that caught up to what your emotional brain was doing. So if you wanna learn how you know when you know, remember the people who told you, "Oh I knew you did that." "Oh, Diane, I knew that three weeks ago." Go find those people and go, "Remember that "time you told me what you knew about me? "I didn't know that about me. "How did you know that?" They can give you tips on how you're broadcasting what you already think. So, sidebar. Any other highlights from the day? Yeah. I was gonna say, my key takeaway was that it's important to imagine your future and think big, and take incremental steps to get to the next milestone. (crosstalk) And pivot when you don't succeed immediately. That's a great--, think big and take small steps, great combination. I have a couple from the online audience as well. Karen says, "I'm really excited about what we learned "from the networking portion. "I will start putting that into action "ASAP." Yes! "It was a very different perspective on networking "I'd never heard before." Kerry says, Kerry Harvey, "I learned that there "are unlimited versions of me, and I don't "have to give myself anxiety about choosing just "one and sticking with it." I love that phrase that you used, David, you're gonna give us the tools to, what is it? For you to get access to you (laughs). Which, I thought all these tools were about that, exploring different dimensions of yourself that you don't usually talk about. One of the nicest comments we got, somebody who was reviewing the audiobook on Amazon said, "The authors obviously "respect the autonomy of the reader." We're not trying to tell you anything that we know about you, we're just trying to tell you how to figure it out for yourself. I think that's the other reason why this isn't a pep talk, it isn't an assessment, it's just, you just need some guidance on how to get to the stuff that you already, kinda know. So with that, thank you very much and know [Both Instructors] You can do this! Everybody does this! (applause)
Ratings and Reviews
A fantastic class for someone seeking to optimize their life for a greater sense of satisfaction and especially for someone who is considering a career transition. We are taught effective methods for brainstorming, examining, and prototyping our options, and we are given an approach for the hardest task of all: how to make a choice when faced with multiple good options! Also great tips for networking and getting your foot in the door. This class was very timely for me as I've been struggling with making a decision on what my next career was going to be. I now feel equipped with tools that will help me make that decision with less agony and more fun! Also, I'm a huge fan of design thinking, so it was great to see how that methodology could be applied to making one of the most important decisions in our life.
Great course! Great for who like me is on their 30's starting life in a new country with a new language and have been out of the industry for 4 years. Designing new goals, making new networking and starting a MBA for some updates on my carrear. Really helped with some focus. Super recommend!
Loved this class! It was high energy, fast paced and well organized, as well as inspiring. It helped me to make more concrete things I've been thinking and dreaming about. I'm so glad I took it. I made great contacts and will definitely use this material in the future!
