The Transformative Power of Going Deep.

What does it mean to live life more deeply? What is the cost of living life in the shallows?

In this episode, Cathy explores:

  • What happens when you take the time to dive deep.
  • The value and fulfillment that come from deep work.
  • Why our current workplaces are ill-suited for deep work.
  • And the transformative power of deep connection and conversation.

You can find an adapted transcript on Cathy’s blog, Field Notes.

Special note: In this episode, I read the beginning of a poem by David Whyte, A Seeming Stillness from his book David Whyte: Essentials. Copyright © 2020 Whyte, David. Reprinted with permission from Many Rivers Press.
