Meeting 3/4 started late at 12.30, ended at 1.45
Stefan, Bea, Josh, Christine and Charlie
We talked about 'experiences'. Experiences that are worth sharing, bucket list worthy, stand out, that we want to do or that inspired you or others.
Stefan likes to emerge himself in one project and finds that a challenge. So we brainstormed about a couple of strategies to shut all the other demands out for a while, by setting boundaries for himself and others, not answering the phone, prioritizing tasks to gain more focused time while still maintaining good customer service, 80/20 principle, tips from Stephen Covey's books on time management, how to managing expectations of self and others, avoiding and ignoring the busyness, nervousness and urgency that daily life demands of us, embrace that we all do a lot. His favorite experiences were Burning Man, a month in Italy and playing soccer.
Bea shared about her around-the-world trip experiencing people everywhere first and first hand without barriers (before weighing in differences in government, religion, lifestyle, wealth and values. Everyone wants to life in peace and be friendly. Traveling and hosting exchange students opens the mind to this.
She focuses by doing her personal Top 6 list every night and takes time to celebrate her accomplishments. She likes to recharge by walking the beach feeling the power of the ocean.
Charlie shared his story about biking 12,000 km from China to Vietnam before ditching his bike for a motorcycle and being welcomed everywhere without knowing the language or habits or anyone before.
Josh really enjoyed the slow travel of a long Amtrak train ride over a plan ride, 2 hours of uninterrupted time with his son. He is looking forward to finishing the latest recording of his band 'Modern Relics' (Country Soul) and loves to get more local gigs to play.
Christine shared a couple of her bucket list items - riding an old convertible one summer, going to Burning Man and giving a TED Talk some day. All experiences that involve a stretch out of the comfort zone and overcoming an inner fear, but would be potentially lead to a long lasting life experience.
