The Next Year Now Podcast

Jan 9, 2018

Our first interview of the year just might be our most important. That's because I speak with Alec Ross - a 2018 Maryland gubernatorial candidate, New York Times best selling author, tech entrepreneur and former senior advisor on Innovation, to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

This conversation is different from our previous interviews because we focus on community and other people. In particular, Alec and I talk about how we can create thriving communities that are stronger ... that lift each other up, and help everyone to thrive. When we think about how we can really improve our lives and thrive, we often look inward. But it's a real missed opportunity if we don't look outward because Other People Matter. Just about everything good we experience in life - be it at work, in our families, at school, in sports ... whatever it is, is almost always in the presence of other people.

In today’s episode, Alec and I discuss:

The most effective habits you can adopt to cultivate a thriving community in your life

Insights into why education plays such an important role in our life and well-being

Great book recommendations for understanding the economy, politics, and how we can improve in our life

And so much more!
