Join Alex for a few special episodes reflecting on and sharing photographs of some past travels as a lead up to an exciting announcement coming in May.
— In January of 2017 I took an “offgrid” motorcycle trip for six days through Death Valley, the Mojave Desert and Joshua Tree. Join me as I share some photographs from the trip, reflect on some of the issues I was working on at the time: for example, why it’s important for us to be intentional about our attention, what we prioritize, and how we find a balance with work and distractions, a topic we’ll cover more formally in an upcoming episode.
