The Forces and Relationships that Impact our Lives – Part I
We all have a roadmap that guides us through our work life and our personal lives, and as David Nour says, “it’s not about balance it’s about blending” But our maps are not linear, as life is not linear and there are many forces that influence us. Strategic relationships can also dramatically alter our non-linear growth trajectory against the forces that will shape the future of how we will work, live, play, and serve others. These are the words of our guest in Part I of this two-part series. We explore these concepts and the book “Curve Benders”, fresh off the press in 2021. A great book for navigating both your life and your company.
