You simply must listen to this very short podcast. While it's brief, the message (from American ethicist and radio commentator Michael Josephson) is powerful. Every adult needs to hear it and absorb it's importance. It's called What Will Matter in the End. [Listen time: 04:30 mins]
An interview with (nearly) 40-year old James Burroughes who, after stellar careers in both the military and corporate world, decided to sell up most of his stuff and travel. BUT he is finding ways to build a new business while he's on the road that pays enough and is sustainable. This video is filmed via Zoom while he was in Lima, Peru. Be inspired with the possibilities James talks about.
Have you ever had a book in you? Something you’d love to spend a few weeks quietly tucked away somewhere, writing? Most books will never get written, and even fewer published. But today, Rob Bialostocki talks to Ron Murray who, as he turns 60, has just published his first book. Ron doesn’t sugarcoat the process but tells it like it is. “If I can do it,” he says, “Anyone can.”
[View time: About 33 mins] In this very first video interview, which is really a relaxed conversation, we meet Keri Clarke. She’s a wife, mother, scientist, graphic designer and general seeker of truth. Not a bad combo! However, a few years ago she had a major realisation and decided to do something about it. She shares her story to encourage you and others who may feel a bit like they're stuck on the hamster wheel of a busy life. Enjoy.
In this first review of Books That Matter, Rob Bialostocki introduces you to A Hidden Wholeness by Parker J. Palmer. Parker is an American Educationalist with a long history of helping professionals from all walks of life deal with the divided lives they have inadvertently lived. What is a divided life? And how can we make it whole again? Check out this short video.
In this last part of introducing A Life That Matters, Rob Bialostocki takes us further than the everyday responsibilities and stresses and strains of modern life. We look at how your life can matter to the world in which we all live, and how you can find greater fulfilment as a result. It's about our CONTRIBUTION. We'll explore what's getting in the way of making a difference, hear about one of Rob's favourite moments in Life from India, and discuss some of the possibilities that lie before us all.
A life that matters should firstly matter to you. Your personal health, peace and joy are important pre-requisites for a life of sustained living, giving and value. But so is living a life of integrity - one that's in line with who you really are. Rob Bialostocki looks at why we can lose that clarity, what it costs us, and how we can revisit and rekindle it.
