The Ripple Effects of Change

I hope you’ll listen to this whole episode of Changes BIG and small between me and Laetitia today. Laetitia is a Happiness Engineer at Automattic. It comes up in our conversation, but we spend the bulk of the time discussing macrobiotics and how it’s transformed Laetitia’s life. We also explore the concepts of balance and spontaneity and how to use them together to create a fulfilling life.

Use a Growth Mindset to Learn Anything

This week’s guest on Changes BIG and small is Praveen Selvasekaran. Praveen and I have a meandering chat, discussing some of the changes he’s made in his life, from moving away from home, to moving to Canada with his wife, where they are building their family. It’s impossible to resist Praveen’s energy, and hard to imagine how he survived months of not being able to communicate in school as a pre-teen.

Be inspired to make changes in your life. Listen til the end for two great book recommendations that have helped Praveen encounter change gracefully.

Find Something That Makes You Happy

Thank you for listening to Changes BIG and small. This week, I’m speaking with Emily Sliman. Although she’s a teacher like Ryan, who I chatted with last week, their paths have been quite different. Emily started out working as a software engineer before changing to be a pastry chef. She didn’t find the passion that she was seeking there, and instead found it as a high school Math teacher. Along the way, Emily’s lived in 8 countries. In that time, she’s learned to embrace change and to say yes to new experiences. She also faced one of the biggest challenges of her life in the past few years. Join us to learn about Emily’s journey. I hope that you will connect with her message and find inspiration to pursue your own dreams.
