Passion Alone Won’t Do It…You Also Need Clarity and an Executable Plan

Never Work Another Day In Your Life

Someone once suggested that if we were to do what we love to do, we’d never work another day in our lives.  I don’t know who came up with that idea but I’ve been trying to figure out how to make this idea my reality for a few years and I’m getting there. 

My Life Changed

It was the night of September 17, 2010.  Several hours after a very late hockey game, I was driving home and had this very uncomfortable and first-time-ever feeling in my shoulders and chest.  It’s a long story.  I’ll keep it short and fast-forward to the point where my heart stopped beating in the back of an ambulance. 

Had I not been in the hands of a paramedic at that very moment, I would not be alive today.  The cardiologist called it a massive heart attack.  No high blood pressure and no high cholesterol preceded this event.  In fact, I had just skated my 75th hockey game of 2010.  None of what was happening made sense.

I Had To Find My Purpose

Since this event in 2010, I’ve been on a personal mission.  I’ve done research, gone through training and have earned certifications to get myself ready to deliver my passion.  The greatest work I do today is that of helping my clients to understand how they are put together in terms of their natural traits and strengths so I can then show them how to build a career strategy that enables them to find that thing they need to do to create their best performance.

In addition to the clarity and alignment work, I also help my clients to figure out how to fine-tune their performance to reach peak performance.  Life is very short.  Doesn't it make sense to invest your life into doing something you have the potential to be great at once you align all the moving parts?

I'm passionate about helping my clients to find clarity around their unique purpose and then to build a road map to help them get from where they are to where they belong.'s Security Recruiter Blog
