Hello, happy Sunday, and welcome to my weekend musings. I’m going to keep this short as it has been a working weekend for us and I actually have more work to get done tonight, but since this weekly posts has been a reader favorite for years, I always like to take a break in the action and share what’s in my head.
I started getting into Yoga this year and have to say it has been an incredible experience. What I’ve also learned is that there are many different types of Yoga you can do and so far Core Power is my favorite.
I look at it as a cross between yoga, meditation, and a kick-ass core exercise class all rolled-into one. There is a common misconception that Core Power Yoga is the same as Bikram or heated Yoga but I can tell you they are very different.
The main Core Power Yoga studio is next-door to us which means that to make it to a 1:30PM class on Sundays I typically leave around 1:25PM and still have time when I get there. That is one thing I have absolutely loved about Austin, from Yoga, to our offices, to seeing a dance performance, everything is walkable.
Austin has some incredible live theater and dance, last weekend we went to see Swan Lake at the Long Center which is right across the river from us. In all honesty the place looks like something out of Star Trek, which as a big fan of Star Trek made me like it even more 🙂
Last but not least I have been reading a great book that I highly recommend, it’s call The Hard Thing about Hard Things by Ben Horowitz, the cofounder of Andreessen Horowitz. As a startup founder I find I’m learning new things every day and this book covers some incredible life lessons and some harsh realities of startup life.
If you haven’t yet read my article on Medium.com about Focus I highly recommend it, this has been one of my biggest lessons I’ve learned going from someone who used to do a million different things to being someone who now is laser-focused on one thing. Before you start a company of your own it can be easy to fall-into the trap of having a “day job” but doing what you love on nights and weekends. As someone that made that transition I can tell you nothing is more liberating that leaving your day job and turning what you love into what you do every day.
Okay, well so much for a short post, back to work, I hope you all had a great weekend and as always, thanks for reading!
