Joseph Sanok: The Hum of Life

Joe and I are very much aligned in our perspective and philosophies. In this episode, we discuss the importance of slowing down, being present, creating healthy habits and practicing a lifestyle that affords us a life of authentic joy and healthy relationships.

Joe has crafted his lifestyle very deliberately. He practices a four-day work week and spends lots of time with family. I love his approach to life. He incorporates science, faith, spirituality, systems, and relationships into every aspect of his life. He now experiences what he calls, “the hum of life”. I love that.

This is a very personal interview and one I know you’ll enjoy.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Transcending through the difficulties of his one-year-old daughter having open heart surgery, and then finding out he had thyroid cancer.
  • Our emotions follow our behaviors. We have to find gratitude and stop and take a deep breath.
  • The importance of work setting boundaries, scheduling family time and slowing down in an effort to elevate your quality of life.
  • Joe employs a 3 – 4 day weekend so he can spend more time with family, and be sharper and more productive for the work week.
  • We have to create an environment where we can “fall into presence” and truly be there for our loved ones.
  • The sparks of innovation and inspiration come most often after a period of deliberately slowing down and being intentional about being present.
  • How do we discover our “hum” or flow state in life?
  • I want to look at each day and ask, ”What can I do to improve the values I stand for?”
  • It’s not that difficult to shift your perspective. Joe talks about neuroplasticity and how we can easily transform the way we perceive the world.
  • The power of story and neuromirroring. We’ve been gathering around fires telling stories for ages.

BEST MOMENT

I constantly stop myself during my day and deliberately slow down and ask, “am I here right now, am I fully present”?
