🌱 Get Out Of The Weeds | Pulse Of The Nation
Do you ever have the feeling that your day is flying by? You are doing things, and working, and knocking stuff out, but it doesn’t really feel productive.
Each day, activity, distraction, hour, and minute seems like you are fighting fires. There is a constant need to jump and push your attention to something else. As soon as that is completed, you have another emergency that keeps you in the weeds.
Well, you aren’t alone in this feeling. I feel like it all the time. The day-to-day tasks prevent me from stepping back, seeing the big picture, and strategizing. Getting out of the weeds, putting a pause on fighting fires, and becoming less tactical and more strategic sounds simple enough, but it is hard to put into practice.
This past week, Elevation Nation partnered with Human at Scale for our first Elevation Nation exclusive workshop. It was awesome to get so many elevators together to learn, grow and connect. Be on the lookout for our second workshop next month!
If you missed the session and want to check out what we learned, peep the 🎥 recording!

Shining a light on accomplishments throughout Elevation Nation
We are shining the spotlight on ourselves this month. (It’s our newsletter we can do what we want). We had the opportunity to speak at an incredible non-profit that helps former high school dropouts come back to school to get their degree and job training for the real world.
Youth Build Philly welcomed us with open arms as we spoke to the students about “Starting Your Next Journey”. For many, this was the first time they explored their mindset and mental fortitude.
The stories we heard and the impact they had was inspirational. Tears were shed, hugs were given, overall it was an incredible event.
It was a great reminder of why we started Elevation Nation and why we work so hard to give back to the young adults in our community.
Thanks for inspiring us Youth Build, until next year!
