EP245: Catching Dreams and Fully Living Your Life with Karen Christensen
When you hear the truth today’s guest dropped, I think many of you will get goosebumps just like I did, “I am no longer willing to be coerced.” I have known Karen Christensen for many years now, and every time we connect, I feel like I’ve been missing out during all the time that’s passed since the last time.
This woman is so wise, creative, thoughtful, perceptive and caring. We expanded on her truth and talked about:
-The discipline of having a practice
-How she catches and changes her own triggers
-The difference between standards and expectations
-Why her and her husband, who are both professional photographers don’t take many photos when they travel
-Skills versus creative process
-How excellence is different from perfection
-and so much more.
I want to listen to this one three more times myself – I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
