We've been exploring how to live Life 2.x – how to iterate your way through life. Today’s episode is related but different. It’s unplugged. Raw. Why? Leighton Phraner, my voice teacher for 35 years, recently died. That got me thinking about how we measure our success – the true measure of a life well lived. This episode is dedicated to him.
One year Jerry and I decided to grow pumpkins. I really don’t know what possessed us to try it. We’d been relatively successful at growing vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, or radishes. And now we thought we were ready for more. So, pumpkins it was.
We put in some starter plants. They took right away. The vines grew longer and longer, and then there was fruit. Until there wasn’t.
Today we’re continuing our Life 2.x series in how to iterate your way to a second life. Where do we start? With joy. On today’s episode, we’ll discover how to practice joy, especially when it doesn’t come naturally.
