It’s the small things that matter..

The DAWN team have been busy preparing for our next (sold out!) event this coming Wednesday.  The theme, approrpriate for the New Year is ‘balance’.  We are asking the question ‘How Balanced is you Life’ and attempting to give the attendees some new ideas and tools to make a difference to their worlds.  On the night we will be joined by a stylist, careers advisor, life coach and nutritionist to give a holistic point view on how to bring life into balance and achieve your dreams.

Today I came across a TED talk from Nigel Marsh about this very subject and thought it was well worth sharing.  Nigel talks about taking responsibility for your life and designing around what makes you happy, set your boundaries and be honest with yourself.  Large companies will try to get as much from you as possible, it is just in their DNA.  So, it is up to us to take responsibility for our own worlds and just by making a few small adjustments we may see some big results.
