Monday Morning Movie: The Hot Tub Principle

January 28, 2013

Yesterday on my blog, I announced 3 new regular features, including the Monday Morning Movie. Today,  my video comes to you from a hot tub in Orlando. I discuss how you get new insights by reducing how hard you think.

This video was shot with my 2nd generation iPoad nano.  Some videos will be shot with a hi def camera.  And others will be shot with my iPhone.  Therefore, the video/audio quality will vary over time.  As you can see with today’s video, in an attempt to make sure the microphone as a close to me as possible, I chopped off the top of my head.  Although this was unintentional, it seems fitting given that the video is about quieting the brain…or at least parts of it.

Want What You Have

January 28, 2008

I was just having a conversation with a good friend of mine. She’s currently in a bit of a funk because life is not turning out the way she expected. From an external perspective, she has an incredible life. But that doesn’t matter. She is still not happy. As we continued the conversation, we discovered that her expectations were the primary source of her disappointment.

Then, with her permission, I read her a brief passage from my Goal-Free Living book. It seemed to strike a chord with her and she requested that I start recording passages from the book for my blog.

Here is the first of many “5 minute motivational moments.” Today’s installment is from the chapter entitled, “Want What You Have.”
