In Episode 264, Trev and AJ share recent epiphanies via The Artist’s Way—including new writing projects, recognizing our negative payoffs, and connecting with new intentions—before Trev sits down for Part 1 of his chat with producer, executive coach, and performance consultant Michael Balchan.
“No matter what else is going on out there, I’m this consciousness in a body, and I get to breathe. And that’s pretty sweet.”
Michael does a lot of fascinating stuff—but as you’ll hear, we quickly get to the heart of what is, coincidentally, the one key thing both he and I feel is the quickest and surest way to level up in life, relationships, and career: mindfulness. In Part 1, Michael and I chat about how he went from commodities trader to mindfulness advocate, the perspective and space that a regular meditation practice can bring… and even do a mini-meditation session together. Doesn’t get any simpler—and that’s the challenge.
If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to be more present, mindful, and intentional, then this interview series is for you.
