Tune into this episode if you’ve been believing your career needs to be built in an orderly and logical fashion, starting with the foundation of your education and your work experience to date. This artificial constraint will severely limit your choices and steer you away from a more fulfilling direction.

It’s a fallacy to believe that your best next move is to always add the next logical building block. It’s not the right choice if the building you construct from that foundation will never become the building you want.

The truth is that it’s never possible to “waste” your education or career experience. They’ve made you what you are now, and you get to take THAT with you wherever you go.

All you ever need to do is make the best choice for you now.

I’m a former international tax lawyer and former senior partner of Ernst & Young. I left the law in 2014 to learn how to paint. After a couple years painting and selling my work, I became passionate about helping other people who feel stuck in their careers and lives and want to feel more personally fulfilled, invigorated and soul connected. I now spend my time painting, coaching, and creating live events at GRACE Studio (more formally, the “George Russell Academy of Creative Expansion”) in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada.
