Well I just got back from San Francisco for 10 days. It sure is an amazing place out there, and I got to see some very good friends. I did get in a few hikes before I started a workshop this past Monday. The views are pretty breath taking.
I think what I enjoy most about hiking or trail running is the sense of wonder I get with the views. It sure makes time stand still, and I love that feeling where it seems like life is slowing down. I layed down in the grass above for about 30 minutes, and it completely re-centered me. It was another reminder to me that I need to get out hiking more often. It sure is rejuvenating and refreshing to be in outside in nature.
The main purpose of the trip was to attend a seminar in Sausalito with the company Learning as Leadership. It was a workshop called Time and Mastery, and we spent five full days uncovering how our ego can take time away from what is most important in life. I also learned some extraordinary ways to manage time and tasks more efficiently especially with email. Ever feel like email is taking over your life? More on that in a future post. I went to level one of their work back in July. They sure are wonderful people, so I will have to get out a full summary of what I learned in the near future.
I was also on a recent episode of A Healthier Charlotte below on corporate wellness. My interview starts at 13:37, where Bobby DeMuro makes me crack up at the start. I don’t really start talking until 18:52 just in case you wanted to scroll ahead. A special thanks to the wonderful people at CLT Blog who continue to post these shows. Also, my good friend Kelly Davis has a great segment starting at 11:38 on some quick healthy breakfast ideas. She could be my long lost sister. Ha.
The link below is a radio interview I did with Bobby on the impact of volunteering. We sure were flowing during the interview, and I always have a blast getting to talk with Bobby.
I start my new job at the Center for Intentional Leadership on Wednesday, and I couldn’t be more excited to get started. 10 days to reflect out west sure has given me an amazing sense of wonder about the future. I sure am ready to get moving forward! Have a great week and enjoy one more picture below. Who does that? Ha.
