What happens when you’re already in a good work and life situation but what you really want is to be in an “ideal” situation?

For example: What if you have a career you love, get paid well, have great relationships… but you recognize it could even be better.

We’ve learned by working with thousands of people that to get to lead a life most people will never lead, you have to do things most people wouldn’t be willing to do.

While this can range from doing the hard work to figure out what your ideal life looks like to contacting hard to reach people, it always means doing things many others are unwilling to do.

For Robbie, who had a great role in DC with a great company, this meant getting away to get new experiences and clarity on what she wanted for her next chapter in her life.

It also meant designing a sabbatical that was both fun, uncomfortable, scary and fulfilling a 5 year dream of a multi month road trip around the continental US.

Our team got the pleasure of helping her design this experiment leading to her next step.

Along the way I personally got to meet her as she and I sat down in our Podcast and Video Studio in Moses Lake WA to talk about:

What caused her to want to leave an already good career How she was intentional about designing a sabbatical that would give her more feedback and clarity The simple formula to not accepting less in career and life (which came from Robbie’s late father)
