Welcome to Life 2.0! 

Whether you are just starting to wonder, “what’s next?” or have already started your journey, the Life 2.0 Course  will help you to find clarity and identify the passions that will fuel your own Life 2.0. Most importantly, the questions here will help you develop an action plan.

The Life 2.0  includes four steps:


1)    Taking Inventory

Completing the inventory will help you identify the passions and opportunities that will take you into your Life 2.0. You’ll reflect on the positive, exhilarating interests in your life, as well as your key skills and strengths.

 2)    Building Your Story and Your Plan: use your inventory to begin crafting your Life 2.0 Story.

 Why does your story and plan matter?  Because it will help you stakeout a pathway and a focus for moving forward. This step will help you develop a context for decision-making. You’ll work on some thoughtful and provocative questions for your interests and strengths—more importantly, you’ll start to get a clearer answer for the question, “what’s next?” 

3)    Exploring the Options – once you have a starting point (or more than one starting point!), identify ways to test your plan and your interests. 

The name of the game here is “small.” Pick a few ideas you have and think about testing them through small-scale experiments. These mini-trial runs will help you vet your initial ideas and interests and identify how those interests can be developed further (or not!). Not everything will pan out, but some exciting opportunities definitely will come into focus!

4)    Evaluating and Recalibrating: there’s no such thing as “one and done.”

 You have permission to change your plans! You have permission to try something else, try it again, put it on the backburner, or toss it in the “reject pile.” But most importantly, you’ll begin seeing patterns, “green lights,” and opportunities develop as you test and retest your ideas.

Now, let's begin with Step 1 - Taking Inventory

If you’re just starting your Life 2.0 journey, you’ve probably got a lot of head noise going on—worries about the future, anxiety about meeting the expectations you set for yourself, and just the muddle of starting over again!

Fortunately, getting clarity is just a step away—and that’s what you’ll be working on in this first step, “Taking Inventory.”  Here, you’ll get started by identifying your professional and personal strengths.

Building Your Story and Your Plan is Step 2.

There are 3 important elements to your story, which you can directly draw from Step 1 - Taking Inventory that you just completed:

1. Purpose – what you want to do

2. Passion – why you want to do what you want to do

3. Personality – how you want people to experience who you are and what you do

These are critical questions no matter the path you intend to pursue. They will help you to:

·      Focus on what’s important

·      Be confident in decision-making

·      Engage in thoughtful conversations

You have a plan—congratulations!

Now it’s time to explore and experiment. But now is not the time to “go big or go home.” Now is the time for baby steps.

Think small and think about the results. In other words:

·      enjoy a small plate rather than the five-course dinner with wine pairings or

·      take a weekend nature walk rather than a 30-day trek across Spain.

Whatever your big idea is, consider how you can evaluate your idea on a small-scale, a little experiment to help you determine how it fits your purpose, passion, and personality. Most importantly, how it makes you happy!

You have your promise, your plan, and ways to get started, how do you feel about it? Do you give yourself permission to adjust as you go?

 

 

Take your temperature: this quick quiz can help you see how prepared you feel to start the Life 2.0 journey you’ve planned out for yourself.
