Dave Ursillo has so much to teach through coaching and writing. One of my favorite parts of this interview was when he talked about prioritizing passions and desires. It’s the intersection of both that help us build a career that we are proud of.
When we understand the identity that we construct for ourselves then we can begin to sliver off the things that don’t work and rebuild ourselves into who we would like to be. As you listen to the interview see how you can find little parts of yourself to improve and grow.
