Chat Highlights

  • The “Two Word Technology” helps you find, what’s your one thing all the time? (Taken from The On Purpose Person: Making Your Life Make Sense, by Kevin McCarthy)
  • Family, at work, on the golf course—it applies everywhere!
  • Kelly’s words are empowering momentum, and that’s when she feels great.
  • Knowing where you’re at your best also helps you identify where you will feel your worst, and then you won’t be surprised by it + can tackle it head on.
  • Narrowing your focus to two words is about integrating all aspects of life.
  • Work is a great place to start, but it shouldn’t be where you end–and sometimes it surprises us when jobs work well…or don’t.
  • Doesn’t fit? That’s not failure. Let’s live into the places we fit the best–even if you feel “stuck,” you can still embody your passions wherever you are.
