Between work, relationships with friends and family and attempting to find time for your own needs, it’s easy to feel pulled in different directions. Instead of feeling fulfilled in all aspects, you might feel as if every aspect is running at diminished capacity. On Tuesday, June 7, at 6 p.m., Vail Symposium and Vail Alliance for Purposeful Living present a special Zoom webinar with author Bobbi Kahler to help deal with the roadblocks on the way to a meaningful life.

“We’re pleased that Bobbi is able to join us for this program with moderator Sarah Smith Orr,” said Kris Sabel, executive director of the Vail Symposium. “We’ve found that our Purposeful Living series really resonates with attendees and this promises to be a program that will provide actionable ideas to help us all reach our goals.”

In this program, Kahler (author, entrepreneur and podcaster) will explore five mistakes that keep us from having the meaningful life that we desire, including the costly mistake of aiming for “work-life balance.” These mistakes keep us stuck trying to “squeeze in” the important things or using our weekends merely for catching up on all the things that we missed during the week. Sadly, they leave us questioning our self-worth, because we have a constant nagging concern that we’re failing at what matters most.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can avoid these mistakes. Kahler will introduce you to a scientifically validated framework that you can use that will help you be intentional in how you want to create a life that you love to live — every day. After her short presentation, Orr will interview Kahler briefly to go deeper on the topics raised. Then we’ll open it up to audience questions.
