What if you were to let go of the ties to your life – your career, partner, home, family and friends? How about just one of those? How would you direct yourself without your usual comforts, predictable conditions and familiar routines?
That was my challenge in 2005, after a divorce and the loss of my father. Taking a six-month sabbatical, I let go of being a successful business leader to go on a journey of re-invention. However, life had another plan for me. My nomadic adventure unexpectedly lasted fourteen years.
In “Life Without A Tie”, you’ll read how a random, unforeseen series of events helped me strengthen my inner guidance, find my humanity, and forge a new, authentic path. From London to Chiangmai, New York, the Himalayas and beyond, we’ll re-live the journey together. I’ve shared the highs and lows, the tears and laughter, and the ten guiding principles I followed throughout. At each step, I’ve reflected on the insights and wisdom gained.
Finally, I’ll share my six rules for happiness, and encourage you to discover your own.
