Synopsis: Today we return to a familiar theme: how to live like it’s your last day. In past episodes we’ve discussed the challenges to implementing this in practice. Thanks to some insights from Mark Nepo and Steve Jobs, I think I’ve found another piece to the puzzle. This is one of those “thinking aloud” episodes in which I explore how these ideas…
 
There’s a lot of talk about “ideology” these days, and it’s usually not in a good way. But what about YOUR ideology? Do you know who you are?

At the end of the day, an ideology is what you stand for …

When I was a teenager, I was a weekend moviegoer, and it was the age of Rocky, Star Wars, and Jaws.

I woke up this morning with an incredible zest to expand my feeling of gratefulness.
