Altruism - Matthieu Richard on cultivating urge to give

How can you cultivate a generous attitude? In this episode, we have Matthieu Richard, a Buddhist monk in Nepal with TedTalks on happiness and altruism that have over 8 million views. In this episode, we deconstruct how to cultivate this urge in our own hearts to be altruistic. We also talk about Matthieu's journey from the intellectual elites in France to a monastery in Nepal, meditation, self-love, how to evaluate the effectiveness of an altruistic act, habits to achieve a meditative mindset throughout the day, and why some reporters call Matthieu “the happiest man in the world” but he disagrees. Our talk helped me think about how to push the boundaries of my own giving, how to better delight people in my life. We also talk about how giving can make me happier. Matthieu's new meditation app (https://www.imagineclarity.com/) may also be the tool you need to find peace. Alright, here’s Matthieu.

Project based learning - Bob Lenz on how project design can help you grow

How can we design projects to optimize our learning? Bob Lenz and the Buck Institute has answers. His name may sound familiar - a previous guest on this podcast, Tom Vander Ark, recommended his work. This topic of planning projects could be relevant to you in many ways. It could be relevant if you are a manager designing projects for employees, a teacher designing projects for students, or even you designing projects for yourself. The episode helped me design my work in order to increase my motivation, incorporate expert feedback, contextualize my learning, and communicate my expectations to teammates better. This episode is dense and jam-packed but like any project, it’s ultimately rewarding. Oy I feel like a cheezy teacher now. I hope that this podcast inspires learning for you as much as it did for me!
