Here are a few highlights:
06:38 Jason’s Advice to Entrepreneurs: He believes in big ideas and saw Mind Body Green as something that could be big. In 2007 they had the idea and 2009 they officially launched. It took 3 years of hard work and sacrifice on the part of his partners and family to make it work. Building a powerful brand takes time. Trust takes years to build, seconds to lose and a lifetime to regain. It took a great deal of passion and dedication. Jason says to entrepreneurs that whatever you are doing always takes longer than you think. You have to be comfortable with ambiguity, because you will be operating without all of the information you want or need. Your problems don’t go away, they just change.
11:02 Lessons Learned from Experts: Everyone is different. We are all individuals and we change. For Jason, having a gratitude practice is huge. When Jason first awakens, he says thank you silently for each of the important things in his life. Hard work will get you far, as will the spiritual awareness, but the magic happens somewhere in the middle.
15:45 Mindfulness in Business: Bridgewater, one of the biggest hedge funds in the world, led by Ray Dalio, huge meditator. If you work at Bridgewater, it is strongly encouraged that you learn meditation as a means to achieve results. Meditation is viewed as a performance booster. Meditation helps us to manage (not eliminate) stress. It has seeped into corporate culture.
21:42 Meditation: There are 4 or 5 main types of meditation. Vedic is a form of meditation where you repeat a mantra, a word that has no meaning over and over in your head. It tunes out and drives focus. There is also posana silent meditation and breath oriented meditation.
