In his TED Talk, Dan Thurmon delves into the concept of living off balance to purposely transcend constantly evolving life patterns and to achieve work-life balance.
Dan is the author of two books, a renowned speaker, and a recognized expert in delivering peak performances — on stage and in the workplace. As president of Motivation Works, Inc., he has worked with hundreds of clients and delivered thousands of presentations worldwide.
Dan helps organizations and individuals implement actions plans and move confidently through transitions. He is a recent inductee to the prestigious “Speakers Hall of Fame,” and his programs have educated and uplifted Fortune 500 companies, young audiences, and even the troops on the front lines of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Dan’s philosophy can be summarized by the title of his book, Off Balance On Purpose. He believes that we will never achieve “perfect balance” and should, instead, learn to embrace uncertainty and initiate positive changes that lead to growth. Also, we should go beyond the pursuit of “success” and enhance our life experiences and professional endeavors with purposeful, positive contributions.
