Embracing Your Potential explains how to achieve excellence and balance in both the performance and personal domains of life. Author Terry Orlick labels these two domains as the "Gold" and "Green" zones. The Gold Zone includes the visible, tangible achievement markers, such as career advancement, win-loss records, and financial status. The Green Zone involves relationships and intellectual, spiritual, and cultural pursuits. Orlick argues that "going for the Gold" need not-and should not-require sacrificing the growth and development of the Green, and that the two zones can be nurtured simultaneously.
Embracing Your Potential applies to people from all walks of life that want to excel and yet enjoy every day in the process.
