Stop Chasing Squirrels

Ted Bradshaw

You’re an achiever. You get things done. You’re visionary, creative, and entrepreneurial, with twenty new ideas a week. You’re successful. So why do you feel like something’s missing?

Creative, driven people have a hard time turning it off. You get ideas in the shower, at breakfast, at a ball game, at 1:00 a.m. Most are worthwhile. Some are breakthroughs. It’s far too easy to lose yourself in trying to chase them all.

Stop Chasing Squirrels lays out a step-by-step system to uncover your true, hidden passion. Not to limit your creativity, but to focus it. So that every idea you follow unlocks your deepest potential and fills your life with meaning.

With six pillars to support you as you shift into your purpose, Stop Chasing Squirrels will help you get focused, stay focused, and unleash your creativity with daily, heartfelt joy for the rest of your life.

High achievers are often negatively influenced by unhealthy and unproductive drivers. Ted Bradshaw shows a different way: it's better to be guided than driven. Laying out a clear framework to follow, Bradshaw provides practical tools to use to support the journey to living to your highest potential.

Ted Bradshaw served as an executive with Xerox and IBM, then left the Fortune 500 world to explore the thrills of entrepreneurship. What he found was a long string of success that looked great on the surface. But underneath it all, he felt anxious, exhausted, and stressed, chasing money wherever it led and wondering why he never felt fulfilled. Today, Ted lives his purpose in helping others find theirs.
