While well-intentioned, this advice often can be paralyzing. In this episode of the GLS Podcast, Liz Bohannon and Craig Groeschel discuss a counter-intuitive strategy to build a life of passion and purpose—not by “finding your passion” or “dreaming big,” but by taking small steps and getting curious every day.
