How to Avoid Moving from Crisis to Crisis

phoneimageIt takes a leap of faith to unplug and stop moving from crisis to crisis. Yet the rewards are many, especially when you bring that mindset to work. Yes, work.

Many senior marketing leaders and CEOs whom I’ve met think of their lives as an “either/or” proposition. They are either relaxed and unplugged OR overworked and hyper-connected.

This is not how I see the world. It’s about living a “both/and” life. We are human beings, not human doings.

In my new LinkedIn post, I share details from my first meeting with Arianna Huffington. The article also talks about the power of unplugging, and how it directly reduces our reliance on crisis for our “energy jolt.”
