I’m not sure how I found it, but today I discovered a bit of a gem in the blogosphere: ValleyZen.
For a quick taste, check out the interview with Drue Kataoka on View from the Bay. It is amazing how a few simple words can have such a profound visceral impact.
Drue’s suggestions resonate with my user-centric world-view:
Focus on what’s important. Eliminate what’s not.
React to the moment — not to your fears and concerns.
- BREAK YOUR RHYTHM
Surprise yourself and those around you.
- BE CALM
Find Tranquility in Action.
- GREEN FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Begin with your own personal ecosystem.
Take time for yourself, reconnect and put things in perspective, and engage the world on your own terms, in the moment, sustainably.
When redefining technology in personal terms, Drue’s take on Zen packs a powerful punch.
