Do you wonder whether there’s another way?
Another, more creative, more meaningful approach to living your life. Well there is and there’s a growing movement of people from all kinds of walks of life who are proving that the way we end up doing what we do in life is often a side effect of external forces. Rather than a deliberate, conscious and authentic set of choices that have come from you and your unique needs. What are you chasing? Success? Safety? Fame? Fortune? Recognition?
Have you stopped to think recently why you’re doing what your doing with your life? Are the stories that you're creating today the ones that you hope your grandchildren will be telling to their children? Are you creating your legacy?

    Boff Whalley from Chumbawamba - Let it Be

    Boff Whalley from Chumbawamba - Let it Be

    Welcome to our conversation with the Musician and Artist Boff Whalley.  Boff was formerly the lead-guitarist of British anarchist punk band Chumbawumba. Best known for their 1997 single "Tubthumping".
    Boff grew up in Burnley, in a Morman family. 

    He embraced the art and punk scenes, experimented with different types of music, and with his anarchist mates from the squat formed Chumbawumba which became famous for Tubthumping and pouring water over John Prescott at the 1998 Brits. 

    Chumbawumba, unusually, seem to have navigated their way through an industry with their values intact. 
    It's a fascinating story where Boff and others seem to have found a way to balance being oneself with being part of a group . . . and thrived.

    Derek Sivers - The usefulness of opposites

    Derek Sivers - The usefulness of opposites

    Derek Sivers is a man with his own mind. To describe him as a musician, circus clown, entrepreneur, programmer, author, speaker, philosopher, and Dad might whet your appetite but it would only be a part of the story. Whatever Derek does, he rarely does it on auto-pilot. He has a knack for questioning things, for doing something different. Don't try and put Derek in a box.

    This conversation is about beliefs, comfort zones, different places, different people, experiences, auto-pilot, curiosity, ruts, and the difference between being AC/DC or Bowie.

    It's a conversation about beliefs and the difference between what's true and what's useful and how we can all benefit from letting go of what we believe to be our truths.

    Pieter Levels - Thinking and doing for yourself

    Pieter Levels - Thinking and doing for yourself

    Hello and welcome to our conversation with Pieter Levels. Peter is the man behind NomadList.com, /remoteOK.com, InflationChart.com, rebase.co and more.

    Pieter is hard to describe if you’re after a old-world description. He’s most certainly a business guy and a software developer guy but he works remotely, sometimes he charges for his creations, sometimes he doesn’t. He practices radical honesty with himself and others. He’s unafraid to experiment, to play and learned as a student that doing something different can have unexpected and very rewarding consequences.

    In this conversation, we discuss the importance, in an increasingly digital world, of getting out there and doing things in real life.

    Pieter himself, seems to be on a quest to find the joy in life but fully understands that what brings joy today may not be what brings joy tomorrow. It’s all an adventure.

    Steph Smith - Life done differently for the risk adverse

    Steph Smith - Life done differently for the risk adverse

    Steph has learned to question the narratives in her life. She is unafraid to live life differently but she's not a risk-taker. Steph explores different ways of living life but she does it carefully, cautiously. She does it in small steps but importantly for Steph, she’s constantly checking that a missed step won’t result in her falling too far.

    If the life done differently that Steph seeks is on another metaphorical island. Steph does a heap of research before she sets off and then she rows, then she checks the boat is in perfect working order, then she rows, then she checks the boat, then she rows and so on.

    Steph isn’t interested in getting somewhere quickly, she’s just interested in getting there.
