Designing Personal Sustainability

@ 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.

John Schmitt, Jack of All Trades + Senior Business Consultant : In our often hectic lives we often forget the beauty, joy, wonder,sorrow of every day life. 90% of life is just showing up-when I just show up, often times I see, feel, hear something totally unexpected. Life is full of surprises but if we don't show up, we can't be surprised.
