In my workshops I do this exercise that I call “The Island.” This guy liked the exercise so much he wrote a poem about it. The Island exercise is an analogy for our life and the success journey. For example, sometimes your boat springs a leak. Other times you get lost in the fog. Some people take action too fast and that’s like getting in the boat with one oar and no map. This is a fun and creative way to talk about what is really going on in our lives and at work.
