Are you ever discouraged by your limited impact on the world?
Do you struggle to find purpose, or perhaps you have purpose yet struggle to balance that and being present with your loved ones?
Are you even connected to what you really care about?
This is part 2 of my conversation with Charles Eisenstein (Part 1 here).
I have a man-crush on Charles. His brilliant mind is plugged into a vision of the world I – and so many others – ache to live in.
Charles graduated from Yale University with degrees in mathematics and philosophy, and is the author of 5 books, including The Ascent of Humanity and The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible.
In this episode, our core exploration is what it means and looks like to have real impact on the world, and the struggles we tend to face in the face of wanting to create impact. We talk about purpose, and an interesting way to look at the unpredictable consequences of saying yes, or no, to any given opportunity. All that, and much more.
At the end, I do something a little different and dive deeper into 2 of my own key takeaways from this conversation with Charles Eisenstein, so be sure to stay to the end of this episode of Men, This Way …
