A reader named Sei asked if I could walk her through one of my most important daily habits. Specifically, how I meditate. My first thought: “There’s soooo much info on meditation out there already…do I really need to add to the pile?”

Second thought: “Yeah, I do. Because I haven’t fully covered my personal practice yet. And when you’re earnestly trying to learn something new, specific steps from someone you trust are vital.”

While I’ve mentioned the power of meditation many times, if you’ve been curious to know exactly how I do it, today’s episode breaks it down.

The violence, inequality and injustice that exists in our world right now can feel insurmountable.

One thing that always gives me strength and hope is recognizing that, amidst the pain and challenge of our times, there are legions of remarkable human beings who are actively working to create a better world.

Not only for themselves, or for a specific religious or political ideology, but for all of humanity.

Specifically, for the billions (yes, with a b) of overlooked, forgotten and often marginalized populations. Their important stories rarely make headlines or garner the support of international leaders.

But as my guest today wisely said, “You don’t have to accept the world for what it is, but you can mold it into what you think it could be.”

Each of us has the power to use our lives to lift others up. Leila Janah, founder of Sama Group, is a living demonstration of that. Listen in as we talk about the transformative impact of dignified work and how technology can be leveraged to make our world a more equitable and just place for all.

I caught myself doing it again, just last week.

While I was walking down the street, one of my weird little money habits took over and I found myself crouched down in the middle of a very busy sidewalk in New York City.

After I broke from my trance, I stood up, smiled and kept walking with the bustling crowd.

What we say to ourselves in the privacy of our own minds matters. It drives our behavior, which drives our destiny.

While we may not feel or notice the impact of these small choices over a week or even a month, the cumulative effect of our daily thoughts and actions adds up to big results over time.

Especially around money.

No matter how much you have or don’t have, money is a topic that touches us all. My relationship with money has transformed over time, and it continues to.

Today, I want to share two of my weird little money habits that help me stay in a state of “enoughness”. Meaning, remembering that there’s more than enough to go around and I’m going to treat what I have in this moment with care and respect.

Today’s episode may fall under TMI and, admittedly, my approach may seem crass to some.

But it’s my honest answer to what appears to be a staple of modern life: a massive and ever increasing pressure to do more, be more, create more and achieve more.

Between all the things you ‘should’ be doing to be your best (meditation, juicing, working out, etc.) and the professional demands on your time (writing, selling, marketing, working, social media, etc.), and the responsibility you have to family, kids, pets and friends…

It’s no wonder many of us feel like we’re barely staying above water. That’s why I was excited to hear from Angela, who wants to know my personal method for getting everything done.

While we’ve talked about productivity a lot before (and will continue to) I’ve never answered in a way that was quite so personal.

*Headphone alert for parents watching with kiddos or readers watching at work. Some bleeped out explicit rap lyrics appear in this episode.

While we had a lot of fun making this one, don’t let the good times gloss over the importance of the message. This episode shines a spotlight on one of the most crucial building blocks of living a full and meaningful life. A lesson that sadly, most of us don’t learn until it’s far too late.  

You must know what’s truly most important to you and live accordingly.
