Do we ever stop and ask the question why do we do what we do?
 
Could it be that we are going about it the wrong way and there's a better way, a slower more thoughtful way to achieving a fulfilled life?
 
This is something that Rob Watson from Raw has been been exploring for the past few years. Listen as he shares his insights on how slowing down could get us where we want faster.

Sit down. Be quiet.

BY BRENT MANKE
@ VOL 29 ON FEB 23, 2017

Take a page from Brent Manke's book and enjoy the life you have, slow down and take it in.  Rushing everywhere we go never allows us to enjoy the journey.  The things you miss along the way may just one day be what lands you up on the Pechakucha stage.  

Is anyone missing a red glove? If so, he'll be around.
