“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” ~Carl Rogers
Jonathan Fields runs a website called The Good Life Project. He interviews amazing people and gains their perspective on life, and at the end asks specifically what they define as living a good life. The answers are, of course, as interesting as the discussions.
I wish I had more time to watch them all. But for now, here are some of my favourites:
- Susan Piver – mindfulness, serendipity and the unplanned life
- Brene Brown – vulnerable is not weak
- Seth Godin – books, business, choices and life
- Kris Carr – crazy, sexy life…with cancer
- Alisa Vitti – what if drugs weren’t the answer?
- Simon Sinek – serve those who serve others
The last name on the list has landed there by chance, not because I like the talks in order, or chronological of when I first watched them. The position of Simon Sinek’s name is almost serendipity, which is the topic of where this list started. Kind of spooky, but awesome at the same time.
In a way, the content of these interviews is far more impressive than a TED talk, because the setting is so personal. A one to one chat. You almost feel like a third person sitting to one side forming a “C” shape.
I thrive on this kind of thing. And to think, there are so many projects like this going on today, but we don’t hear about them. Tell someone about this, watch them, share.
