“You are really just a quarter of a twist away from being where you want to be.” Bob Goff is the king of one liners like this that can really make all of us stop in our tracks and pause for a minute, thinking about our lives. Bob is a New York Times bestselling author of three books: Love Does, Everybody Always, and Dream big, with his new book, Undistracted coming out in 2022. Everything Bob does is big. He gives big hugs, dreams big dreams, and does big things for the world, especially people struggling with education overseas.
Join Bob and I on an incredibly inspiring conversation as we dig in on the kind of things that he is fired up about right now. Including a school for witch doctors in Africa, A school for women in Afghanistan, and even a vineyard in California. Bob has practical tips for us to find joy and meaning in our everyday lives, even by just crossing the street. I think you will be blown away by how easy some of his ideas are, yet how much potential they have for change.
A few practical tips from Bob:
1. Write down the things that “ping you” that made an impression on you and then spend time
the next day going over this
2. Use a counselor if you have something that is really pulling on you or bothering you
3. Be available: respond to people when they reach out to you, be there, be present with them.
It can really change their life.
