    Plan for the Future, But Also Live Fully Now

    Along with graduation season comes excitement and anticipation of the adventures and success that lie ahead. We just can’t help but think about what’s next. While looking to the future is a generally good practice, there is also great importance in taking the time to live in the moment.
    In this episode, we discuss Alan Watt’s 1959 speech "Live Fully Now" and why making space for some balance in our lives is just as critical as planning for the future.

Older Listener, lot to love!

Even though I am past the teen and twenty something part of my life, I find Journey and it’s host Jetaun to be such a strong impact in my professional and personal worlds! Jetaun’s authentic and insightful perspective are so welcome in the advice and lessons given from each episode. I appreciate when a host just gives themselves and demonstrates their knowledge/experience without heavy handness or issue. Cannot recommend enough!

Life Changing

As a young adult this podcast has really helped to me grow and have a positive approach towards discovering new things! I call this “the golden nugget world” because I have never been in a space like this getting so much valuable information and left wanting to know more. I believe thus podcast is really taking me on my journey to Jupiter! Thank you!

One of my favorite podcasts!

What a WONDERFUL concept for a podcast! Jetaun has great interviews with a wide variety of interesting people.... wishing I had 17 year old to listen to all of these episodes (but this 38 year old finds them fascinating, too!).
