Putting yourself first

PRESENTED ON AUG 17, 2016
IN SANTA BARBARA @ VOL 18

It may be you think you are part of the ‘me’ generation and are used to feeling guilty about being selfish, but the vast majority of us are ‘playing hurt’ and ignoring our well being.
Just another human on a journey, Patrick Gregston has been a change agent in transforming an industry, done business with Fortune 100 companies, and survived gunshots, fire and car accidents, to say nothing of decades of marriage and parenting. His wife tells him he talks too much, but he’s hoping you’ll like what you hear.

Designing Personal Sustainability

BY LISA HEMINGWAY
@ VOL 3 ON JAN 30, 2016

“When I first started, I became busy so quickly but I learned busy doesn't mean happy. I had no time to do the creative work I had been hired to do, let alone any personal projects, volunteer work or on some days even eat or sleep. People told me oh you're busy that's so great! but this kind of busy was making me miserable.”

In Designing Personal Sustainability from PechaKucha Night Nanaimo’s 3rd Volume Speaker Lisa Hemingway talks us through her journey of applying principles of sustainability into her personal life. A collaborative creative consultant with a focus on sustainable design, she provides useful advice in how to sustain yourself when you work on your own. After all, when you're your own boss, your most important employee is yourself.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, February 24th, 2016.
