Good advice here from Steve Jobs. But how can we achieve this when everything around us is churning and our inner voice is being drowned out by a hundred different messages telling us different things?
Chapters 1 and 2 of Inner Leadership provide tools and exercises that help us to centre and ground, clear the clutter, and so begin to hear our inner voice. Repetition amplifies that voice.
Chapters 4 and 6 show us how to define what it will take for us to have lived a worthwhile life and to articulate our purpose and values. They do this with tools based not on abstract theories but on our actual life-experiences. This clarifies our inner voice and again makes it louder.
Chapter 5 shows us how to articulate our chosen vision in a way that inspires us and other people to want to make it happen. This converts our inner voice into a tangible, practical, measurable, achievable goal.
The rest of The Churning provides tools for enabling you to achieve that goal and convert your inner voice into something tangible out in the world, just like Steve Jobs did.
