Simple Living

Recently, I saw a Tweet about an article called "How to Do. One. Thing. At. A. Time" and it made me think about The Minimalists.  Sometimes life moves on and I don't spend the same time I used to in terms of consuming content from my favorite sources.  But that's ok.

Then I saw the email with that podcast episode called Simpleliving.  I must say these guys have continued to improve how they deliver their message of living a meaningful life and spreading the word about what it means to be a minimalist. 

Now they have the YouTube version of their podcast episodes which gives another perspective than just listening to them.  Here's the podcast episode and below the video I will include my own notes as I watch/listen:

TechCrunch & WeWork

“WeWork’s Adam Neumann talks with Connie Loizos about building operating systems for buildings, selling services, and building partnerships.”

I’ve been doing my remote work at WeWork and I’ve been enjoying having a very cool working space where not only I can network with others but also have interesting views from the city.

Louie Schwartzberg

I recently found another video by Louie Schwartzberg, who gave a TED Talk that became almost my favorite one as well as a favorite inspirational video.

Then back in 2015, and to my surprise, I found Louie in my favorite place to be in the world: The Tetons.

He was sitting down on one of the couches in the Jenny Lake Lodge, where there is an area where there is a huge window from which you can see the majestic Tetons.  I couldn’t help but go and talk to him.  We had quite a good, long and meaningful conversation.

I remember sharing and talking about that video so many times, that I posted this video with a list of my favorite parts of the video on my main website.




Be On Your Best Behavor

Isn’t it great to have moments where you connect people you meet and end up having meaningful conversations?

It is becoming more of a luxury these days to have someone’s attention for a long period of time. Perhaps we are getting used to having fragmented or asynchronous communications as a result of technology and social media.

Genuine interactions, without an agenda, without interests of any kind are very important to me. Therefore, I truly agree with Kare Anderson as she says in the video below that …

… when two people bring the best side in each other at the same time, that’s where the best bonding happens!
