Too many businesspeople are operating on autopilot, reacting to one project or another, feeling like they’re taking the passenger’s seat to life. Instead of being emotionally, spiritually, and physically energised by doing the things they love, they feel disconnected, disillusioned, regretful, unhealthy and disengaged.
Jonathan Fields’ How to Live a Good Life offers a sparkling antidote for people who feel this dullness in their work. Drawing on science, spirituality and personal experience, Jonathan walks readers through a 30-day program to refill their reservoirs, reconnect with themselves and others, and live a more “lit up” life.
In this episode of the HerBusiness podcast, Suzi Dafnis interviews Jonathan about the book – how it came to be, how and why it’s structured the way it is, and some of the most inspiring lessons from it.
