During the day
I’m working inspired at Cisco Networking Academy, the world’s largest and longest-running corporate social responsibility education program. I’m also preparing to teach digital marketing for the University of San Francisco’s Master of Arts in Professional Communication program.
My latest at Harvard Business Review went live on June 14. Check it out: The Right Way to Process Feedback.
I’m currently reading Frank Ostaseski’s The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully.
I highly recommend How To Change Your Mind. From Netflix: “Author Michael Pollan leads the way in this docuseries exploring the history and uses of psychedelics, including LSD, psilocybin, MDMA and mescaline.”
After 15 years together, I still fall more and more in love with my partner Maggie. We also love and get lovins from our Alaskan Klee Kai named Baker.
