What Adventure will you create in 2017?

Whoa! We are halfway into January with the buzz of New Year’s resolutions, and crowded gyms already behind us.

As we get back into the flow of life, it’s a great time to ask ourselves about our vision for the year ahead. We will achieve so much more if we are intentional about where we want to go – rather than racing blindly from one day to the next.

What do I want to accomplish?
Where do I want to go?
Who do I want to serve?

To start answering these big questions – we first need to seek clarity on what we’ve already done. Yes – first – ask more questions! The BEST clues as to what will bring us joy, adventure and fulfillment in the days ahead are embedded in the life we have already lived. Below is a short list of questions to get you started.

I challenge you to carve out some time for your self, and start THINKING.

To a great 2015!

A Mountain of Courage

Giving a TEDx talk is a challenging adventure.

I enjoyed sharing some of my story and the stories of people I admire – those who have had the courage to embrace and excel in the face of difficult change. It has been rewarding and inspiring to hear from the Traverse City attendees that my talk gave them language, and a visual image, for where they are in their own journey of change. I also met some very talented people among my fellow TEDx Traverse City speakers, who I will introduce to you in the days ahead.

By watching ‘A Mountain of Courage’ you will learn more about my personal journey – the journey that led me to create Courageous Thinking Inc. Every day I am energized by the challenge of assisting adventurous leaders who seek excellence in their personal growth, and strive for success in their organizations.

Frozen Boats: Europe Buckles Under Deep Freeze

Thank goodness the Sailing Arabia Tour is SOUTH of the record-breaking cold snap that continues to stop northern Europe in its tracks.

To view more of Charles Michel’s extraordinary photos of the ice storm damage in Lake Geneva, visit Show | YACHT.DE.

While the photos are spectacularly dramatic the problem is very real and severe across northern Europe:

Across the Atlantic, much of Europe is suffering through a winter of historic — and deadly — proportions. Over 600 people have died from the intense cold that has gripped the continent over the past few weeks, with the most severe toll recorded in Eastern Europe. Over 5,000 Russians have suffered from hypothermia or frostbite while the country has seen 20 days of unusually cold weather when temperatures fell 13°F to 25°F below normal and Moscow on Feb. 13 endured temperatures of -4°F. (It could be worse though — temperatures in the northern Russian city of Toko fell to -63°F.) In Central Europe, the commercially vital Danube River froze for hundreds of miles, from Austria to its mouth in the Black Sea, forcing officials to take chain saws to the ice. Things are so bad in Hungary that the central bank has been compressing billions of old notes into briquettes that can be burned for heat. If the climate’s still warming — and it is — word didn’t get to Europe.  Continue reading on Time.com…
