H to the Izzo

Monday - Jay-Z announces that he's doing a 7 stop tour in one day. I look for details / tickets and there are none of either to be had.

Tuesday - The first tickets start showing up. I e-mail everyone posting them, but they're always sold.

Wednesday - More tickets on craigslist / ebay. I am still e-mailing them, almost get tickets, but don't.

"Practical, Action-Oriented Contentment and Compassion" by Leo Babauta


Leo Babauta has inspired millions through his writing on Zen Habits, where he's shared his experiences in building up great habits, cutting clutter and junkfood from his life, learning about great parenting and building a wonderful family, eliminating debt, increasing his income and productivity, and living a life that's more happy through and through.

Leo is now graciously participating in GiveGetWin with a practical class on "action-oriented contentment", and he sat down with Sebastian Marshall to share his thoughts on what motivates him, around what contentment is, on trusting yourself, on being compassionate and compassion as an impetus for action, on self-compassion and treating yourself well, and happiness in general. Enjoy:
