In August 2015, I was invited to speak at a TEDx event, and I spoke on my favorite topic of Declaring Breakdowns (this is also the topic of my forthcoming book, which will be published by June next year).

I share personal anecdotes about my work and my family — but also about a learning group few of us friends created called the ‘5AM Club’. Each member of the 5AM Club declared breakdowns and created a future of choice in areas that mattered to the individual member.

Each one of us had great success, and through this TEDx talk on Declaring Breakdowns, I invite viewers to:

  • Identify what they care for;
  • Get present to the default future in each of these cares;
  • Create a new future where the default future is not acceptable to them; and finally,
  • Take a stand to achieve that future.

If you’re with me, take a look — and if you like some of the ideas, feel free to share the post and video with others.
