My guest on this episode is David Cain. Through his blog, Raptitude, David reaches readers on the topics of mindfulness, his personal experiments in improving his life, and more. During our conversation, we cover:

  • How un-zen his creative process can be at times
  • His creative schedule, in depth
  • An accidental negative visualization he experiences, which leads to happier results
  • Batching tasks he doesn't enjoy
  • The importance of having a "business mind" to allow for more creative time
  • Balancing serving others versus serving himself

Here's my favorite quote from our conversation:

"You can't disaster-proof everything, but you can read as much as you can and be as prepared as you can be."

Totally agree!
