Take Back Your Week

A Security Catalyst Guide for Directed Action

I'm tired of seeing people end a crushing week with the gut-wrenching feeling of defeat. For many, it's turned into a vicious cycle that leaves us weary. Worse, left unchecked, this cycle disconnects us from our value.

And when we can't see our value, no one else sees it, either.  It doesn't have to be this way. 

This guide is forged from experience. Mine and those I am fortunate to work with. Based on a series of recent discussions, I decided to share the outline and work collaboratively to build the guide one section, one week at a time.

Then we'll work on the challenges together. Taking directed action in pursuit of value.
