Life is full of little boxes pleading to be checked off; it all starts in school with classes to be taken, clubs to be joined, and most importantly, a degree to be earned.

As we get older and life throws more challenges at us, we realize how many things we think we need to do to meet society’s standards. In the midst of hitting goals, and making plans, it’s easy to get sidetracked from our real passions and go through life just checking off boxes.

But that’s no way to live.

In this episode, you’ll discover a simple framework that will help you stop living someone else’s life and start living your own instead.
