Leading Above The Line

This episode of the Farnham Project Podcast is pure gold. Listen to Jim Dethmer, founding partner at the Conscious Leadership Group and the co-author of the insightful book, The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership, spew an impressive amount of wisdom. It’s so dense I had to listen to it twice, the second time with a pen and paper to take notes. Wow. Here’s to leading and parenting above the line.

The Energy You Allow

“You are responsible for the energy you bring. And you are responsible for the energy you allow.”

I listened to a Super Soul Podcast this weekend (don’t remember which one) and overheard Oprah say this quote. Whoa!

Living Adventurously Podcast

I had the pleasure to meet Alastair at the 2018 Do Lectures, where he gave a deeply inspiring talk, challenging all of us to bring a sense of adventure into our day to day.

How We Return To Work

Brené Brown and Priya Parker talk about the real, big and small challenges we’ll see when we return to workspaces, the need we’ll have to use our creativity and ingenuity to figure out how to be together, and the opportunity we’ll get to ask how we can be together better.

Every Noise at Once

Every Noise at Once is an ongoing attempt at an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 5,430 genre-shaped distinctions by Spotify as of 2021-05-08.

This is weird. And fascinating.

(Thank you Manu)

Imagination as the Path of the Spirit

I keep coming back to this: Imagination as the Path of the Spirit John O Donohue. He asks: “What are the 7 thoughts you keep coming back to and that shape your life?”

A wonderful listen all around.

Adam Grant on Design Matters

In this wonderfully deep conversation, Adam Grant discusses his new book “Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know”—and the value of checking in and checking up on yourself. Design Matters, the podcast by Debbie Millman is a gift that keeps on giving.

Daft Punk

Daft Punk break up. This is their farewell video.

All Shall Be Well

Thank you for sharing this gem with me, Stefan.

Three Women I adore

This Unlocking Us episode made me squeal: Brené Brown in conversation with Roxane Gay and Debbie Millman on love, life, and the pursuit of creative space. Three women I admire and adore.

(We had Debbie and Roxane as guests at CreativeMornings last year. You can watch the conversation here.)

Car Choir Concert

I love how resilient hoomans are. For members of Luminous Voices, a professional choir ensemble in Alberta, Canada, rehearsing and performing safely during the pandemic has meant getting into their cars, driving to an empty parking lot and singing with each other’s voices broadcast through their car radios.

Some Good News

The world is on fire but here is some good news: Put a little summer in your pocket. Poolside FM has launched an iOS App. The app experience is just like its mamabear website super retro and fun. So happy about this!

Sounds of The Forest

I would love to meet the humans behind Sounds of the Forest. They are collecting the sounds of woodlands and forests from all around the world, creating a growing soundmap bringing together aural tones and textures from the world’s woodlands.

The sounds form an open source library, to be used by anyone to listen to and create from. Selected artists will be responding to the sounds that are gathered, creating music, audio, artwork or something else incredible, to be presented at Timber Festival 2021.

This is pure and lovely. So much YES!
