The seed of Inner Compass was planted when I
was going through a particularly stormy period of my life. I recall staring at my list of tasks across my work and personal life and feeling hopelessly overwhelmed.
I was working full-time as a management consultant, moving country, and building a business on the side. So much was changing around me that on some days even the simplest of tasks became anxiety-inducing.
My focus was all over the place and I struggled to prioritise my time. I frequently questioned my life direction and the validity of my choices. My stress levels consistently rose and created a negative feedback loop in my life.
I would lie in bed at night staring at the ceiling in the dark, having given up on the prospect of sleep. My health suffered and by the end of the year, I developed cavities in half of my teeth from the constant stress.
It is against this backdrop that the Life Compass was born. From the sheer necessity to organise my chaotic mind, I created a basic system in Notion
to help me focus my attention.
Over the months this system rapidly grew and evolved until it eventually morphed into the first version of the Life Compass.
As time progressed, I let other business ideas drop away and instead entertained the idea of teaching people how to organise their minds, and by extension, their lives.
