Episode 065: Life Happens. Sing Anyway.

Life happens.  When we’re the least prepared.  Whether we like it or not.  We’re going along, and BAM!  Something unexpected.  That knocks us off our feet.  The breath out of us.  Sometimes it even changes us.  Cause us to shrink inside.  Make ourselves smaller to try and dodge the next blow.  I’ve learned the hard way that when I protect myself I experience two losses – the original one and the loss of myself.  I’m learning to sing my own song, and let that song weave around all of my life.  Even the painful parts.  I invite you to lift your voice and sing your own song with faith and hope.

If you do what everyone else does, you’ll end up like…everyone else.  As Andy Andrews says, if you want to be different, you need to act different.  Be an Original.  What does it take to pull that off?  Deep work.  On today’s episode, I go deep on Cal Newport’s book called “Deep Work”, and share some observations of my own.
