Good advice here from Steve Jobs. But how can we achieve this when everything around us is churning, and our inner voice is being drowned out by a hundred different messages, all telling us different things?
Chapters 1 and 2 of inner leadership provide tools and exercises that help you to centre and ground, clear the clutter, and so begin to hear your inner voice. Repetition amplifies that voice.
Chapters 4 and 6 show you how to define what it would take for you to have lived a worthwhile life, and to articulate your purpose and values. They do this with tools based not on abstract theories but on actual experiences in your life so far. This clarifies your voice and again makes it louder.
Chapter 5 shows you how to articulate your chosen vision in a way that inspires you and others. This converts your inner voice into a tangible, practical, measurable, achievable goal.
The rest of The Churning provides tools for enabling you to achieve that goal, and so convert your inner voice into something tangible out in the world, just as Steve Jobs did.
