Favorite quotes of the episode: “Mastering the art of living makes little distinction between her work and her play… One hardly knows which is which. She simply pursues her vision of excellence in whatever she does, leaving others to decide whether she is working or playing. To her, she is always doing both.”
“This idea that we have to hustle and be at the brink of death to be worthy is the biggest challenge for busy professionals today.”
“Why do you have to kill yourself to be worthy or deserving of anything?”
“Working on your own terms is happiness to me.”
I kicked off 2019 with a promise to discuss big issues, big ideas and provide real-world actionable solutions that we can all implement in our daily lives as busy professionals.

Parts of a quote attributed to James Michener and adapted for our audience, “Mastering the art of living makes little distinction between her work and her play… One hardly knows which is which.
