Good Word of the Day // Doing Without

“We are happy in direct proportion to the things we can do without.” Henry David Thoreau

Episode 215: The Practice of Groundedness with Brad Stulberg Good / True / & Beautiful | with Ashton Gustafson

In The Practice of Groundedness, bestselling author Brad Stulberg shares a healthier, more sustainable model for success. At the heart of this model is groundedness–a practice that values presence over rote productivity, accepts that progress is nonlinear, and prioritizes long-term values and fulfillment over short-term gain. To be grounded is to possess a firm and unwavering foundation, a resolute sense of self from which deep and enduring, not shallow and superficial, success can be found. Groundedness does not eliminate ambition and striving; rather, it situates these qualities and channels them in more meaningful ways.

Good Word of the Day // A New Poem

Yesterday I  Was In Love

It was perfect.

and I, perfectly In love.

Staring at this empty floor I am suddenly pulled back into my state of yesterday.

Is that available today?

Can we repeat such loveliness?

I was In love with…
…My boots.
…Nature’s Jukebox of breeze and bloom, sun rays and midnight rain.
…A meal that was enough.
…And Eyes that allowed me to see my child as my teacher.

Where do I begin today?

Just begin.
Again.
In love.

Final GTB
