Episode 73 – Long Time No See!

A wise teacher taught me the value of returning to one’s roots and revisiting the basics from time to time. This week’s all about revisiting some previous people & places previously featured on Happy Road, and seeing what they’re up to these days. But rest assured, this is not a re-run episode! Then, a brand new crowd funded video game for the blind, but that anyone will be able to play, and the next tip in the ongoing “how to get out of a fitness rut” series.

Show Notes:

Remember Derek Sivers? I definitely do! Check out his site for some cool, new articles since I last mentioned his work on the show.

Gavin Aung is the artist behind Zen Pencils. One of his more recent works was the illustration of a Maya Angelou poem, Phenomenal Woman. Here is a great Youtube vid of her reciting her poem. But be sure to also enjoy Gavin Aung’s illustrated comic version. I think it’s quite brilliant!

Adam Grant is someone who believes that we can boost our own happiness by being helpful to others. He’s a popular prof. at Wharton, and author of a new book, Give and Take.

Joe Peacock is another great name from Happy Road past. He is well-known on the net as a journalist, and as someone who has learned to beat depression.

Here is the link to a new game in the works. It’s a crowd funded project meant to be a video game for the blind. It’s all about sound rather than sight, and might prove to be an interesting challenge for the sighted and blind alike.
