[EP 9] Do you know the difference between taking it personal and being emotionally invested?

6/25/2019

“Even if someone shoots you – it’s not personal.” This sentence has stayed with me since I first heard it on my ipod listening to an audio book called The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz back in 2010. I have probably chewed this sentence over in my head 100s of times. Really? It isn’t personal if someone shoots me?! The example is so strong. The provocation so challenging. And that’s why it works. This episode is about the critical difference between taking something personal...

In this part 1 episode I will explain what the Ejector Seat is and how to make sure...

EP 4: MEDITATING WITH KIDS & THE HABIT PLACE HOLDER

4/24/2019
More
It’s been 11 years of (almost) daily mediation for me. The first 5 years of meditating I didn’t have any children. My time was MY time… It didn’t seem that easy at the time to stick to a routine – but looking back – that was the easy days. Then I had my first-born, and as anyone with children knows, sticking to a habit that requires you to dedicate time to yourself in the hours when your kid is awake… yeah…good luck with that… But meditation is so important to me, it honestly makes...

EP 1: WHY WORK ISN’T JUST WORK

4/1/2019

Work isn’t just work. Saying “just” about work implies that we shouldn’t be feeling very much about our work, because hey “it’s just work”. But there is nothing “just” about work. Work matters on so many levels and it’s very often absolutely appropriate that we experience intense feelings about it. In this episode I dig deeper into why that is. Listen here so that you’ll never feel wrong for feeling strongly about your work again. I also introduce the concept of Human-Friendly...
