At the end of July I picked up the @headspace app. Since then I’ve hit 180 straight days with some form of meditation. —
Stress levels were high. Things weren’t as I wanted them. Taking a little time each day to refocus has been beneficial. —
As you learn about different difference makers in the world, regardless of the industry they work in, or thought leaders in different fields, one common thread is always meditation or some sort of mindfulness. —
After getting the hang of it, and that still can be tough, the benefits begin to show themselves.
Happy I’ve been doing this and I’ll continue to do it. It isn’t hard, yet I wouldn’t call it easy either. Each day is different, but helps you understand what is going on beyond what you can see. —
Before saying anything, no I’m not leaving Illinois State and still have my day job... Now that’s it’s been announced, I’m excited to share that I’ve joined @discmaniadiscs as their Content Manager. -
I first reached out to @jussimeresmaa in 2012. I never talked to Jussi prior to that. He had no idea who I was at the time. Over the last five years we’ve slowly built up a relationship that has turned into not only a great business relationship, but one that I would call a friendship as well.
Over the last few months we’ve talked about what could be possible together and after each and every call both of us walked away more excited than before. -
I’ve had a lot of respect for Jussi and the rest of his team and getting a chance to be a part of it was one I couldn’t pass up. Getting to work with Jussi, @ernovayrynen, @jukkateras, @fyeahdg, and the rest of my friends in Finland is a treat. I’m looking forward more 5 a.m. skype calls and executing a plan many have never even thought of before. -
