CORE PROGRAM DESIGN & OUTLINE
We’ve designed this journey to push the boundaries of your thinking in three parts:
(1) Our approach to radical self-awareness and self-assessment that will give you the best understanding of your values, interests, and goals you’ve ever had.
(2) An in-depth methodology to truly design your next career move based on your desired lifestyle and what you discovered in part 1.
(3) A plan of action that is achievable, will get you on the trajectory you’ve designed, and that you truly believe in and come back to time and time again, along with practical tools to keep you on track and help you navigate uncertainty ahead.
I. Radical Self-AWARENESS & INQUIRY
Our desire for change is often rooted in an evolving definition of ourselves. Something has changed, and in doing so has shifted our personal frameworks, priorities, and even definitions of success. Extensive self-awareness and a process of radical self-discovery leads to better alignment between our work lives and our lifestyles. Being radically aware of your interests, values, and lifestyle preferences will have a direct impact on how you will define and shape your transition.
In this module, we will practice self-assessment and mapping of our values, interests, lifestyle preferences, and work style. When we understand that the only constant in life is change itself, we need to learn the tools to cultivate and practice a constant sense of self-awareness around our decision making, and flex this skillset not just during periods of transition, but also throughout our lives.
II. LIFESTYLE & CAREER design
It should come as no surprise that at Unsettled we believe our careers should support and enhance our lifestyles. We do not see a separation between work and life. There is no “work/life balance” to be sought, only integration of our careers into our lives so that they serve the same end. An integrated answer to the question, ‘What do you want out of your one short life on this planet?’
We often think our lives our defined by the major decisions. Yet true momentum is built one choice and one decision at a time.
With a seemingly infinite realm of opportunities and decisions we face each day, all decisions benefit from being guided by a sense of purpose; a blueprint of how to get what you want out of life. Like most things with lasting value, to build anything requires that you have a vision, a design, and a plan for how you will build it.
iii. Experimentation & PRACTICE
When we say “life is an experiment” we mean it in the truest sense. Yet it’s not a series of random experiments; It’s an experiment within your life’s vision. A process of trial and error, discovery and reflection, we must go through before understanding what works for us.
You will learn our approach of how to conduct small experiments throughout life anytime you are asking “What’s next for me?”. How to track your progress, stay on course, evaluate decisions, and make micro-adjustments when necessary.
When you finish this final unit, you will know more about what you want (self-awareness), have a plan laid out for how you will get there (lifestyle design), and a totally new approach for taking small steps that can get closer and closer to what’s next for you.
