This. Made. My. Day.
Jocelyn is a dear friend of mine and the force behind the fantastic podcast Hurry Slowly, as well the editor of one of my favorite newsletters. She is a thoughtful, smart, grounded and heart-forward human.
And I think she is onto something, pointing out, how we’re in the grip of a more, better, faster mentality that drains our energy and makes us feel like we’re never doing enough. Her 4 week course advocates for a new way of working — a heart-centered approach to productivity that’s nurturing, intentional, and inspiring.
It starts January 19th and is designed as a 4-week course, everyone starting at the same time. This allows Jocelyn to support you with live Q&As every week as you integrate the concepts. The course consists of 12 video lessons form the core of RESET — each lesson is about 15-20 minutes long. In total, watching all the videos takes just under 4 hours. Additional materials, like the “reset rituals,” are self-paced so it’s all about how much you want to put into the course.
I am signing up. I am ready for a cosmic tune-up!

My love for Choir! Choir! Choir! runs so deep! This one with Rick Astley made my heart burst. The founders of this heart-opening organization are definitely on my list of people I would love to have coffee with one day. There is so much JOY oozing out of this video!
Two weeks ago I had the wonderful pleasure to sit next to Elizabeth Streb at a dinner party. She told me she was an extreme action specialist who flies. I couldn’t help but tilt my head to the side and say “Tell me more!” Luck has it, she talked about her quest of defying gravity in this wonderful TED talk.
What an incredible woman! Check out her company Streb.
If you’re a creative type and into traveling, you can apply to be one of the lucky few to be paid to travel around the world for 4 months. Yep, for reals.
This is a privately funded project. No sales pitches or hidden agendas. It is a media project entirely here to underline the importance of friendship and that we are all connected. Refreshing.
Two thumbs up. Apply here.
I have seen James Sills do his choir leading magic multiple times. It’s utterly heart opening. And now I want to start a choir with heart-forward humans in Brooklyn.
I am so happy to see my friend Bas Berkhout for once in front of the camera.
I met Bas many moons ago when he filmed a Like Knows Like with me. During a day of filming, I was able to plant the seed that he should leave Holland and move to NYC. He did and joined our creative co-working community. We’ve been fast friends ever since. Love this talented man.
Earthrise tells the story of the first image captured of the Earth from space in 1968. Told through the voices of the Apollo 8 astronauts themselves, the film recounts their experiences and memories and explores the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space. Read the story here.
This beautiful bag is made out of Bananatex®: the world’s first technical fabric made purely from banana plants, organically cultivated in the Philippine highlands. Beautiful! Well done, QWSTION. (The language you’re hearing is my mother tongue, Swiss-German, a spoken-only language.)

Single women in China are courageously standing up against the pressure of being labelled “Sheng Nu”, or “leftover woman”. This hit in the heart.
(thank you Matt)
I really enjoyed this honest and vulnerable conversation between Chase Jarvis and Scott Harrison, founder of Charity Water.
Last month’s CreativeMornings theme was Chaos and we had the honor to have Shannon Lee fly in from Los Angeles and share her story.
In her open talk, Shannon Lee shares how she dealt with chaos in her life through healing and learning from her father’s timeless philosophies.
What a lot of people don’t know is that Bruce Lee was not just a martial art master but a deep philosopher. Some of my favorite quotes are by him. He was a deep soul. I am grateful Shannon is making sure her father’s philosophies are spreading and live on.
20 minutes well spent.
I watched the newest Mr. Rogers Documentary last night and it was just what my heart needed. It’s like a wave of kindness and love washing over you and restoring all faith in humanity. Watch it!
