When most Thought Leaders preach singular focus on one dream or passion, some leaders push back at that idea. Carey Green is one of those leaders. He has learned that some people are wired to pursue multiple passion projects. Carey counts himself among them. He points out that Thought Leaders who teach about singular focus do so fervently because it's worked for them. Carey is challenging the idea that one size fits all. He wants to open up business leaders’ perspectives to see more opportunities for growth, not less. To hear more from Carey, make sure to catch THIS episode of Chasing Dreams!

Getting out of a “Funk”
Have you ever been in a “Funk?” Has there been a time in your life where you just couldn’t figure out the way forward? How do you navigate your way out? Carey Green was in the middle of putting together a new project when he hit his “Funk.” He learned some important lessons in this season and how to make it out on the other side. First, he learned the necessity of letting others in. Carey shared his thoughts with someone close, his oldest son who works with him. That made a huge difference! Second, Carey focused on the clarity he had before the “Funk” set in. He calls it “Never doubting in the dark what you clearly saw in the light.” Hear Carey expand on these thoughts and more on this episode of Chasing Dreams!

[35:46] Carey’s one piece of advice for people who are chasing their dreams.
Be flexible. We tend to think that sitting down, making that plan and knowing every step of it is the answer. But that’s not the answer. Often our vision of what the dream is going to look like is not what it is really going to look like in the end. We don’t see the future clearly. We just have an idea really. As you are on the path, and you are approaching the consummation of that dream, be flexible.
