The Opportunity Behind Our Sabbatical Not Going to Plan

You are meticulous about preparation. You make all the lists and plan all the details, but sometimes things happen that are outside of your control. It’s disorienting and confusing. What are you supposed to do then? How do you recover and keep going?

In this episode, Megan and Joel, her husband and Chief Product Officer at Michael Hyatt & Company, share the story of a sabbatical that wasn’t quite what they had planned. They offer up the lessons they learned and the importance of choosing what story you put around these experiences so that, when the boulder comes, you can do something with it and continue on.

In this episode, you’ll discover—

  • What happens is less significant than the stories you tell yourself about what happens
  • How to metabolize unexpected change and continue forward
  • Why setting yourself up well leads to better outcomes when the unexpected occurs
