084 Jake Carlson

Modern Leadership

Jake shares a lesson in gratitude. As a tax attorney in corporate America, he felt he wasn’t there for his kids. Jake decided that the quality of his time with his family was important to him. He took his kids out of school and his family spent the next year living in 12 countries. Through this journey, Jake learned that we tend to focus more on quantity (e.g. we collect a lot of stuff) than on quality. Visiting a WW2 concentration camp, a trip highlight, was a humbling experience. Jake shares these powerful nuggets of life wisdom:
– when life kicks you, keep the perspective
– take inventory of what you already have
– be grateful for the blessings and the opportunities that you have
– be clear on what you want
– continue persevering through the challenges
