Measure What Makes Life Worthwhile!

Just finished interviewing TEDster Chip Conley – awesome human being !

Not sure if you have seen his talk? Definitely worth the 17 minutes…

Pathways for Anxiety

Awesome stuff!

I saw, the founder of the Pathways program, Paula Barrett, speak last Friday at the Generation Next Conference. Some very exciting work in building resilience in kids and adults to things like anxiety and depression.

Apparently 1:5 of us are born psychologically sensitive to Anxiety, but up to our early teens only 50% of those will show signs of Anxiety. If left unchecked, by the time these kids move through the 14 to 25 age group, up to 80% will experience Depression and Anxiety and a range of other symptoms.

Building skills in resilience is like ‘vaccinating’ yourself.

The Greeks understood that mind and body must develop in harmonious proportions to produce a creative intelligence. And so did the most brilliant intelligence of our earliest days – Thomas Jefferson – when he said, not less than two hours a day should be devoted to exercise. If the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence, was Secretary of State, and twice President, could give it two hours, our children can give it ten or fifteen minutes.

Hang On

Each one of us on this earth has it. The ablility to lead …… and inspire. Sometimes our work feels small & insignificant. But remember, a small ripple can gain momentum…and build a current that is insurmountable.
Begin with one small step. Don’t let others stand in your way. Walk your own path,
Some may laugh, So what. Many will follow. Don’t ever give up.
Success …………. Seems to be largely a matter of HANGING ON after others let go – William Feather

a wizard’s power to melt stone to sunlight…

‘We wait all these years to find someone who understands us, I thought, someone who accepts us as we are, someone with a wizard’s power to melt stone to sunlight, who can bring us happiness in spite of trials, who can face our dragons in the night, who can transform us into the soul we choose to be. Just yesterday I found that magical Someone is the face we see in the mirror: It’s us and our homemade masks.’
