The ultimate challenge for leaders is to align their legacy to a higher sense of vision, mission, and purpose. But with burnout or success gone stale, sometimes the way to achieve that can be hiding in plain sight. Dr. Al Spicer, the founder of Extraordinary Life, helps leaders find their unique thumbprint and hone their leadership impact.
Al had the opportunity to join Jayne Warrilow for the Sacred Changemakers podcast. He shared his unique perspective on what it takes to lead an extraordinary life, and how he is helping business leaders redefine their definition of success.
Two simple words that beg a lot of complex questions. The most obvious one is: So, if there’s such a thing as an “extraordinary life,” then there must also be such a thing as an ordinary life. We may typically say we have ordinary days (e.g., I wake up, eat, go to work, go home, eat, watch TV, sleep; do it again), ordinary cars (the ubiquitous 4-door sedan or mini-van), ordinary tasks (laundry, pay bills, take a shower), ordinary homes (2 or 3-bedroom house, 2-car garage in an “ordinary” suburban neighborhood).
