The Art of Learning – Slowing Down Time

Friday, March 20th, 2009

As a child I had a fear that I could never be a chess master because I ­wouldn’t be able to fit all the information into my mind. Sometimes after two hours of a chess lesson, my teacher’s words seemed to go in one ear and out the other, and I envisioned a brain filled to the brim. Where could I ever put so much more? And if I did manage to cram everything in there, how would I be able to sort through the stuff?

Life Practices for Changing the World From Home

This book came to me like a surprise party—planned and ready, waiting for me to just open the door.  I had just started working as a personal coach when I realized my clients were doing the work of humanity.  By changing the way they chose to live and their perspectives on what they wanted out of life, they were making a positive difference in the world around them.  And, yet, that’s not the whole story of how this book came into my life.
