Thought: What Do You Want In Life? How Will You Find The Time To Devote To It?
This talk is about stopping and thinking about what it is you want in this life. So often we go through our day on autopilot without bringing self-awareness or mindfulness to simple but important questions like "what do I want"? Another thing this explores is how we can find time in our lives to devote to the things we want.
