Hi Jenna,

"I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble." - Helen Keller

Here you may find a poem by yours truly, words of wisdom from someone wiser, meaningful lyrics by a beloved musician, or a relevant piece of reading material. No matter what, it will be whimsical in its own way and garnished with a GIF!

I'm a sucker for a good interview, and over the past week I've listened to 5 or 6 of them from my podcast playlist. My favorite conversation was with Mark Cuban on Adam Grant's podcast called ReThinking. If you don't know Adam Grant, he is an organizational psychologist, Wharton's top-rated professor for 7 years, author of 5 New York Time's Bestselling books, and the list of admirable accolades goes on. And, I'm sure you know Mark Cuban. 

In a short 45 minutes, they discuss everything from Mark's incredible efforts to make prescriptions affordable, his favorite shark to do business with, how social media impacts pro basketball players at halftime, and why following your passion is the worst advice. (I especially enjoyed Adam's afterthoughts on that last part!) There were numerous aha moments throughout this episode, and their ability to breakdown the complicated healthcare system in a way that made sense was a gust of fresh air. You can listen here (recommended) or read their wise yet whimsical words in the transcript here.

For as long as I can remember, I've started every morning with greens. There's nothing like frequent travel to disrupt that, though. Enter: Fizzy Green Tablets from Amazing Grass. Just plop one of these in a water bottle for the perfect mix of electrolytes, vitamins, and the benefits of greens when you're on the go. I'm also a big fan of their detox flavor to stay hydrated and healthy!
