Michael Lausen’s “Getting Off the Treadmill” presentation is thoughtful and thought-provoking. It inspires the audience to reflect on life and long-term goals. It allowed us to take some time to rethink where we are and what we want to accomplish. With the help of an eye-opening questionnaire and detailed guidance, we learned how to reduce stress and rejuvenate life, and we gained tools for affirming a life purpose.
