Generators are designed to wait for the right opportunities to respond to, this way they invest energy into pursuits that bring satisfaction.

To follow the Generator Strategy effectively:

  • Listen to Your Gut: Pay close attention to your Sacral responses. Trust the "yes" or "no" signals from your gut when responding to opportunities.

  • Know Yourself Deeply: While waiting sharpen your connection to your gut by learning what turns on your sacral.

Living a meaningful life as a Generator means engaging in activities that resonate with your authentic desires. When doing so you'll find that you're never fatigued, and can even get pushed into overdrive to complete tasks you truly care about.
