17 Declarations on Business Life

Nothing is a sure thing. No matter what they said, no matter how well the meeting went, no matter how much you rocked it. Until the check clears, or the doors open, or the curtain lifts, you’re actually operating on faith. (And faith is essentially awesome and necessary — but until the check clears …)

If you chase goals that are meaningless, you will do things that you don’t really want to do — and it will feel gross. And you’ll get headaches. And your creativity will suffer.

This paradox will set you free:

Be zealously determined to feel exactly what you want to feel, and then let go of your expectations of how it shows up.

Conformity sucks.

It’s all about relationships. Every victory, every stressor, every laugh, every breakthrough, and almost everything you appreciate about your work and life will be about the relationships you have.

If you work to earn the respect of the people you work with, everything else takes care of itself. See it as concentric circles of love: you, those nearest to you, the rest of the world. On a related note:

Take care of the people who work with you. It’s easy to get focused on the customer, or the stakeholders, or everyone beyond your work walls, but if you can actively serve the people on your team, you will not only learn and give and receive in profound ways, you will burn some karma.

It’s never about the money.

It’s always about the money.

It’s easy to say you’re not in it for the money when you have some money.

Show up as yourself. So many people are dying inside because they’re not really showing up. So if you’re You — at the meeting, at the club, on the bus, in love — well, then that would make you automatically exceptional (not to mention freer, fulfilled, and closer to self-actualization. And sexy. Of course.).

Meaningful work + a fun time doing it = Bliss.

Everybody talks about everybody. No exceptions. Keep it positive and hopeful.

Lying is bad news.

Ignorance is a choice. Wisdom is earned. People do stupid stuff when they’re scared.

Kindness. It all gets down to kindness — and it always will.

Generosity is the next frontier.

Hopefully Devoted

[LIGHT WORK] Examining our devotion: If we don’t feel free… what’s the point?

I know that countless mystics throughout time agree that the reason for our spiritual endeavoring—our devotion—is liberation, and only liberation. The “work” in our light work creates a freedom from afflictive states: anxiety, selfishness, shallowness, insecurity, always comparing ourselves to other people, restlessness, fear… If the whole point of our devotion is liberation, then here’s the question…

Hopefully Devoted

[LIGHT WORK] Hopefully Devoted

This is the last episode of this podcast series. It’s devoted to one of my favourite topics: Devotion. We’re shining light on our prayers, our beliefs, our teachers… and whether they’re actually getting us closer to what we really want—liberation. We’re talking about the real work of light work.

Sacred Activism

[LIGHT WORK] On Sacred Activism

I’m interested in how we work as individuals and how we come together as a society—to create justice. To be in right action. To balance the scales. To transmute darkness into light. How do we hold people accountable? How do we speak out with fire and clarity about our ideals? How do we call people on their destructive shit without creating harm or incurring karma?

Sweet like honey, and sledgehammer-hard: lessons from my year.

Everyone on #TeamD takes these personality tests

One of our best investments of time is in understanding each other: what our strengths and talents are, how we show love + appreciation, and how we respond to stress. We’re working to be even more thoughtful and diligent around these practices in our culture, but we’ve got some great tools in hand.

Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes1

[LIGHT WORK] An intimate Q&A episode. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

If God is in the details, then the Soul is in a good Q&A. And that’s the substance of Podcast #4: Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes. Your questions make it so easy for me to rant and offer some (hopefully) useful how-to’s and tricks of the trade. The “trade” being discernment and devotion. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.
