When I was in my early twenties I worked at Mohonk Mountain House, taking kids on hikes and lifeguarding. I met many good friends there and Ivan Cash is one of them. He lives in San Francisco and has created Cash Studios: a one-person creative shop + awesome assistant + very frequent collaborators from around the world.
Ivan’s projects make me feel connected with humanity in a fresh, raw way. They inspire me to put down my cell phone – for a bit! My favorite offering from Ivan’s latest update is this:
Rephrasing “I don’t have enough time,” to “that’s not a priority for me” allows for full accountability with my actions and time.
Here’s an example from my life that made it gel for me,
Original statement : I don’t have time to meditate right now.
Reworked, less stressful, fully accountable statement: Meditation isn’t a priority right now.
Isn’t everything a choice? And time sort of an illusion? Let’s be accountable for each present decision we make.
I encourage you to follow or even subscribe to Ivan’s AWESOME updates here:
Here is one of Ivan’s latest creations. I really, really, really recommend you visit his site and watch the other short films. They are moving, relevant and beautifully-filmed.
