The Smallest Investment… In Yourself

 In READ

We need to talk about the smallest investment in yourself. Because so many people struggle with too much work. From burnout.

People who identify as change agents are often doing their catalytic work, in addition to their day job, which can increase the feeling of burnout.

Making the investment

One of my favorite TedTalks by Nigel Marsh speaks to the issue of finding ways to sustain ourselves and make time for the things that are most important in our lives.

“Being more balanced doesn’t mean dramatic upheaval in your life. With the smallest investment in the right places, you can radically transform the quality of your relationships and the quality of your life. Moreover, I think, it can transform society.”

This is a big part of the reason why we created Catalyst Constellation. And specifically Catalyst Constellations’ retreats.

Retreats are designed with rejuvenation in mind; a beautiful setting, great food, mediation, yoga, hikes. It’s the gift of a few days for change agents to come together with a tribe who understand the specific energetic challenges of catalytic work.

Together we (re)commit to rejuvenation practices (small and large) to help sustain ourselves and our work. Participants leave with an ongoing peer group to support each other on the journey of finding “balance” and continually committing to investing our time in the right places.

The retreat also focuses on clarifying your vision and creating an action map. You don’t just leave rejuvenated; you have a concrete path forward to focus your renewed energy. The cohort co-creates and refines each individuals’ plan; leveraging the wisdom of the group to accelerate your progress after the retreat.

As change agents we need to sustain ourselves because the work we are catalyzing is important. We’re creating positive, lasting change in the world. We invite you to connect with us to find out more about this amazing opportunity to invest in yourself and your work.
