Living a life well examined was something Socrates advocated. It's a way of living that I believe is key to a fulfilling life.

Examining life can be difficult to do in this demanding world. It’s easy to put off looking at how to become a better human being when there are so many distractions.

In this episode, I talk with Gilt's Heather Fleming about using Agile as a basis for living a life well examined. If you're unfamiliar with Agile then definitely tune in.

So get ready to take notes, more great wisdom coming your way.

By some researchers count, we spend 1/3 of our life working. It consumes much of our lives. So when employees' personal lives are continuously sacrificed because of work spillover, the integration of the two worlds begins to fall apart.

In this episode of Work That Matters, I talk with Tracy Brower about her new book Bring Work to Life by Bringing Life to Work. The title alone speaks volumes of the importance of a work/life mix.

We'll discuss important topics like abundance and it's role in living an integrated life. Also, we'll explore how the work environment influences our ability to do our best work.
