My Thoughts: Well, truth be told, there is no Fred. It just rhymes so well, I couldn’t resist!
However, there was indeed a date with TED. On October 24th here in Saskatoon, I delivered a TEDX talk titled: Lighting A Spark – Navigating Mid Life Malaise.
My gift to you today, is the link to that message. A click of either the image or the title will take you to the video.
What’s it about? Causes of malaise, common responses, a three-step process to help you navigate your way through life’s transitional fog, and examples of others who are making their way to what comes next.
Grab a coffee. Take a look and give a listen.
Your Thoughts: I hope the ideas in the video help you think more deeply about rekindling your own spark when your fire grows dim.
I welcome your comments, reactions and insights. Fire away!
News Notes: Since delivering this 17-minute TEDX talk, I’ve expanded the message into a 60-90 minute keynote. With more time, I’m able to explore how this issue plays out in organizations, how we can support others as they attempt to rekindle their sparks, and to share more real life examples of ways that people restore excitement and engagement to their lives.
I’m also developing a follow up concurrent session that includes specific strategies and tools for exploration.
The keynote and concurrent together are the basis for a terrific half-day workshop or retreat.
This link will take you to a Program Description for Rekindling The Spark – Navigating Mid Life Malaise.
And, this link will take you to the article: Tapping Into Passion – Moving Through Mid Life Malaise.
Please share this info (the TEDX link, the program description and the article) with others. And, do keep this program in mind for professional development activities and conferences on your horizon.
