    Realizations Michael had after dealing with his own overwhelm:

    I could give more
    I can grow on purpose
    Every leader needs help

    “Your employer will soon forget the long hours that you spent at work, but your children will never forget the memory making moments.” -Michael Nichols

    The Five Phases (video) (PDF) that Michael articulates in this episode to conquer overwhelm:

    Purpose
    Path
    Plan
    Prepare
    People

    The four things leaders are typically interested in getting better at:

    Improving income/revenue
    Leadership skills development
    Becoming more effective/efficient
    Leading better through change

    Michael mentioned the Personal Life Plan Guide and The SIMPLE One-Page Business Plan as resources, as well as the Guidestone Executive Retreat Center.
