All month long, I’ve been talking about our greatest commodity: time. We can never get it back and we can’t duplicate a moment. That’s why your time is so precious, even when you’re at The Studio (MDR)—especially when you’re at The Studio (MDR)! After all, you’re here for 3 or 4 hours a week, so when you show up, I want you to make those hours some of the best of your week. Do that and it’ll help you take advantage of the rest of your time. It’ll inspire you to stop giving away your time for free. I always say that four hours of training is all you really need if you make the most of your time. So, how do you do that? What are the ways to ensure you’re making the most of your time…

What do you cook when you are visiting someone afar and working out of a foreign kitchen that is less than stocked with any bare necessities, much less extra goodies, and you’ve volunteered to prepare a vegan dinner for a group of four that has quickly grown to be seven? I just so happened to be greeted with this welcomed scenario Monday night, in St. Augustine. The result appeared as follows.

Ask photojournalists to name a peer they admire, and Sebastião Salgado’s name is sure to crop up. The Brazilian is renowned for the long-term projects he undertakes, devoting years at a time to documenting the story of a particular people or the evolution of a certain place. [ted_talkteaser id=1729]As he describes in the talk he gave at TED2013, his attention to detail and his personal attachment to his subjects caused health problems that nearly killed him.

The recordings are free to listen to here for 24 hrs after the live broadcast. There is a full week of guest speakers. Today’s speakers will not be available after 9am PDT USA.

– People with desk jobs and bad sleep can gain 5-10 lbs a year.
– We need to reclaim our lives by gaining control of our health.
– There is nothing radical or extreme about eating plant-based. We can talk endlessly about why the standard american diet is extreme. The peer-reviewed studies are crystal clear that the health issues Americans are dealing with can be reversed with lifestyle.
