    323 - Alan and Jonathan "Reinterpret; Rhythm over Balance"

    323 - Alan and Jonathan "Reinterpret; Rhythm over Balance"

    Balance is a term frequently tossed around in our culture. Living a balanced life, having a work life balance...These all seem great but the truth is balance is inherently reactive. When we try to find a balance between things that aren't meant to be balanced we find ourselves more reactive and living and leading like we're tight rope walkers uncomfortably trying to cross the Grand Canyon. 
    There's a better way though. And it starts with rhythm. 
    On today's episode, Alan and Jonathan are going to spend time helping you REinterpret rhythm over balance and how to move from reactively balancing your life and leadership to a more proactive rhythmic posture of life and leadership.

    On today's episode of our summer RE series, Alan and Jonathan guide you through a process of understanding the importance of riverbanks in your life and leadership, and how to cultivate them so that you can continue leading from a posture of health.

Practical Meets Spiritual!

Alan and Jonathan consistently bring fresh and clear relevant content and guests. Most episodes are fairly short, which makes each episode really accessible. My life and leadership is healthier and efficient because of them.

Practical and Needed

These interviews are great. In a time in America when the input of the older generation is often looked down upon, the insights given by the podcast guests from their decades of experience is just gold. I have felt on multiple episodes like I was being gently sat down and spoken directly to! Thanks guys!

Must listen

The insights from listening to just 2 episodes are worth their weight in gold.
