Links –

A relaxed mind is a productive mind, by Daniel Goleman via Mindful Magazine.

Busyness is the Enemy of Productive, Which are You? by Stacey Alcorn via Entrepreneur Magazine.

 

Book –

I’m still learning a lot from The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching: Transforming Suffering into Peace, Joy, and Liberation, by Thích Nhất Hạnh. I usually have a tendency to rush through books to check them off my list (working on that!). In this case, I’ve made a deliberate attempt to slown down, not push, and let what I’m learning sink-in along the way.

 

 

Music –

I’m liking this house mix from Sam Kelo on Soundcloud, I hadn’t heard of Sam before this and will keep an eye out for future mixes. The 2 hour length makes this the perfect soundtrack for long Saturday indoor cycling training rides.
