TLS #73: Possibility and the Flip Side of Uncertainty with Jonathan Fields (Good Life Project)

TheLivelyShowwithJonathanFields

Today on The Lively Show I’m talking with another host of a podcast you might know… Jonathan Fields!

Jonathan is the force behind the YouTube channel and podcast, Good Life Project. He’s interviewed hundreds of thought leaders (like Seth Godin), creatives (like Marie Forleo and Milton Glaser), and mission-minded people (like Brené Brown).

In today’s show, we are looking at various aspects of his own life, his findings on intuition and uncertainty, and he shares his (brilliant!) “three basket theory” that has changed the way I approach my life and work.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to get a huge dose of inspiration, thoughtful insights on uncertainty, and a new way to look at getting the most out of every aspect of your life.

    Oh man, this was so good. I feel like I say that all the time, but this one really spoke to me today. The three buckets might be a game-changer for me in terms of my personal approach to life.

  2. I have to agree, I love this one too! So inspiring! Also I love the daily rituals that help inspire creativity … this was jam packed with valuable goods!
