#60 The Work of Your Life - with Khe Hy & Jerry Colonna
Khe Hy spent 14 years in Financial Services and was successful by all signs, but his work and life felt ‘meh.’ Something felt disconnected from him as he suited up in the morning and turned off the finance switch in the evening. He opted for a life of more meaning, and started RadReads, a passion project now grown into a community of sorts. But something still didn’t feel right for Khe. Even though he preached a lot about what’s important, he found that a hard talk to walk and instead found himself putting the most important things in his life - his wife and daughter - last on his list of priorities.
Despite all of Khe’s efforts in meditation, mindfulness and reflection, he struggled to figure out how to be present for his life. Instead he found himself thinking about ideas, people in his network, and ways to improve. As a self-proclaimed life-hacker, he struggled to find the metrics and hacks to be present.
As Khe and Jerry discuss, perhaps the answer to being present is deeper than hacks and metrics. Perhaps the clue lies in what he’s so afraid of.
