Being Well Podcast: Being More, Doing Less

Being Well Podcast: Being More, Doing Less

All of the many ways that we’ve found to optimize our performance has led to much more “doing,” and not nearly as much “being.” Today Forrest and I explore how we can get more in touch with being, and how by focusing more on “being” we might even be able to “do” more than ever before.
