“Any minute now, everything will change”

Dark timesThe language of this article is a little more poetic than our usual focus here at The Churning.

But everyone’s experience is different, and a good leader is a human being first and foremost, so you may well find it chimes with you.

This excerpt sums it up pretty well:

“These days, the rough patch we’re navigating has turned into a very long haul. I believe we’ll weather the changes. I believe we’re strong enough to do so.
Still, it’s easy to fall into despair and wish that our journey wasn’t so rife with trouble.

Transformation is not optional right now. It is required. We cannot continue to fumble blindly in the darkness, unaware of the light we possess. We must solve the problems we’ve created.

And although this awakening is painful — like road rash, or a broken bone that hasn’t been set yet — we can’t wait for rescue. Not this time. We are the people we are waiting for. We must step up and take the reins. There is no one else. Just us.

What has always worked, no longer works.

Be here now, even if the thought absolutely terrifies you.

Don’t check out. Don’t go back to sleep. The world desperately needs you — it needs your talents, your passion, your ideas, your voice.”

The challenges we face are an opportunity: an opportunity to get clear on what matters most to you and then make that happen.

The world desperately needs your talents, your passion, your ideas, your leadership.

There have never been so many people who want the same changes you do.

It is time for inner and outer transformation.


The inner leadership half of the churning provides seven steps for identifying and creating an inspiring vision of what matters to you most. Outer leadership provides seven steps for bringing that vision into reality.
