Show Notes

Welcome to episode 14 of the Mindful & Driven podcast! It's all about how to not lose sight of what really matters whilst chasing your dreams.

Episode 14’s guest is John Mashni. He’s a full-time writer with four kids. He’s also written the best-selling children’s book called Cinder Toot. He had a miserable corporate career initially but an intervention with his wife encouraged him to change careers. She encouraged him to go back to law school where he reinvented himself and refound his joy. He has been writing about reinvention ever since to try and make others find a more fulfilling and happier life. 

Topics discussed in this episode:
How to be more mindful of the present moment. How to make every moment special. Why it's important to pay attention to those around you. How to be a better listener. How to reinvent yourself. Why you should always be open to change. How to prioritize your goals. How to create new memories. Why the present moment matters. "Right now counts forever."
