The Island Exercise

Island Excercise

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.

    Good analogy. Its sometimes all to easy to look at our lives and be overwhelmed, instead of just commiting to change and beleiving in ourselves.
