During a discussion about our futures, Alex and I discovered a mutual frustration for the passion-seeking exercise, “Describe Your Perfect Day.”
For many this exercise is easy. Who doesn’t want to daydream about their ideal day in their perfect life? But for us, this exercise left us feeling lost and discouraged.
Like so many others, despite having college degrees and work experience, neither of us had a clue what we wanted to do with our lives. We naturally assumed we just hadn’t “found our passion” yet, but further reflection and research revealed more.
The reason it was impossible for us to choose just ONE perfect time to wake up, ONE perfect place to live, ONE perfect breakfast to eat, ONE perfect job to go to, is because we know if that exact day occurred too many times in a row, we’d freak out! We’d frantically want to change our alarm clocks, our breakfasts, our locations, and our jobs.
We discovered that we’re…
What fuels us is variety. What stifles us is repetition.
Once we realized this about ourselves and began nourishing this need, life became easy. And the pressure to find the perfect anything, was gone.
There was no way we could keep this revelation to ourselves. Ever since that day our mission has been:
To help Variety Seekers STOP SEARCHING for their passion and START LIVING.
We understand firsthand the feelings of being STUCK in an unfulfilling career, of thinking that “there has to be more to life,” and of not knowing WHAT IN THE WORLD we’re meant to DO!
That’s why we’re devoted to helping you discover the career, lifestyle, and path that is right for YOU.
And just a disclaimer, we’re NOT life coaches. We’re not claiming to be gurus or experts.
What we are, are brother and sister, weeding through all of the information and BS out there so you don’t have to. We’ll bring you the REAL experts, the REAL findings, and the REAL strategies that are going to work in YOUR life.
