Because It’s Wednesday


In our society we live in a constant state of amusement. We leave little to no time to reflect on things that matter. In the words of Lewis Mumford,

“A day spent without the sight or sound of beauty, the contemplation of mystery, or the search of truth or perfection is a poverty-stricken day; and a succession of such days is fatal to human life.”

I discovered Explosions In The Sky my senior year of High School. 6 years later their music still takes me to a place of refuge. I hope it can do the same for you. 

CEO Who Hates His Title

Climbing mountains and living on the beach, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia Outdoor Clothing, had no intention of being one of the most successful people in his industry. However, he has used his title and his company to do more than just tell southern frat apparel. Chouinard has driven environmental campaigns, started one of the first maternity leave programs, and changed the way we look at business. It’s people like Chouinard that make us realize that doing big business with a soul, while incredibly difficult, is possible. 

I highly recommend reading what the Wall Street Journal had to say about Chouinard:
