Today our expert guest is Andy Storch, an author, consultant, coach, speaker, and facilitator on a mission to get the most out of life and inspire others to do the same. He is also the host of two podcasts — The Talent Development Hot Seat and The Andy Storch Show — and the author of “Own Your Career, Own Your Life,” which is designed to help professionals stop drifting and take control of their futures.
When Andy was on the show back in episode 115, just a little over one year ago, this book wasn’t really on his radar. But as he got more into personal development — by way of Hal Elrod, like myself — he realized that he already had a message he wanted to put out into the world. He just hadn’t put it all in one place yet.
A big part of Andy’s message is contrary to a lot of what you’ll see in the self-development space these days, which often emphasizes the personal freedom unlocked through entrepreneurship. And that’s true, to an extent, but being an entrepreneur isn’t for everyone — and it’s not necessary to live a happy and abundant life.
So Andy endeavored to create a resource that was applicable to anyone who has been told that you can’t have it all, or that you have to put your time in and then you can have a good life in retirement. This is a resource to help anyone put in the priorities, boundaries, and systems that will allow them to, as the title says, own their lives.
This may not be the right time to burn all the ships and charge forward with a grand new venture, this might not be the right time to tell your boss where to stick it. But there are still ways to take back control, and Andy has some practical strategies to help you do it.
The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway
“I want you to think about where you’ve been drifting in your life, letting other people or society dictate how you live and what you do for work and in your career. Where can you really flip a switch and start to take ownership, start to take responsibility, stop playing the victim, and set a course and really start moving towards that. Stop putting things off, stop procrastinating.”
Where can you take ownership today? Where can you really dive in and own your future?
