Podcast Notes: 1 Second a Day App, the Museum of 4AM, and the 90 Minute Container

Intro: I listen to Podcasts frequently in order to feed my curiosity, spark ideas, and get out of my head for a bit by focusing on something else. Typically, I take notes throughout Podcasts on ideas, projects, people, and anecdotes I want to investigate further, or that really resonated with me. These are my collection of notes.

PODCAST: TED Radio Hour: Shifting Time

  • Why I Loved this one: I have an obsession, fascination, curiosity with “TIME”. Time in the present moment. Time on earth. Why we are here? What does it mean to be alive during the time we are alive in? Why does time sometimes move fast, and other times it moves so slow? How do we change over time? How do we manager our time? TIME is HUGE!
  • 1 Second a Day App
    [view here]: “For over 3 years, I’ve been recording 1 second every day, so I’ll never forget another day ever again. This project has had such a profoundly positive impact on my life, that I’ve passionately developed an App that will make it extraordinarily easy for anyone to do this too.” – Cesar Kurlyama. 1 Second Every Day helps stitch the moments of your life into a single video, by capturing a second of footage everyday.
  • The 4AM Mystery [view here]: Rives has a contagious obsession with 4 a.m. At TED2007, the poet shared what was then a minor fixation with a time that kept popping up everywhere. He then started the Museum of 4AM – an ongoing curation of what’shappening around the world, at 4AM. The aim of the 4amproject is to gather a collection of photos from around the world at the magical time of 4am.
  • Question: Did time exist before the Big Bang? Answer: We DO NOT KNOW.
  • Book: From Eternity to Here [view here]: The quest for the ultimate theory of time. Author Sean Carroll argues that the arrow of time, pointing resolutely from the past to the future, owes its existence to conditions beforethe Big Bang itself—a period modern cosmology of which Einstein never dreamed.

PODCAST: The Mindful Creative: Dominate Your Day with Jeff Sanders

  • General Topic: Discussion on methods, processes and tips, as well as mindset shifts, to empower you to dominate your day from start to finish.
  • 90 Minute Blog Posts: Jeff gives himself a strict 90 minute container to start and finish a blog post. This is extremely helpful in avoiding being a perfectionist and creates a system to actually complete a post, rather than always having it in draft mode.

About Lauren Rains

Hi my name is Lauren Rains. I write about the human experience. Through thick and thin, I’m dedicated to growth, adventure, integrity, and love. The Mad To Live is based on my pursuits, experiments, research, and lessons of challenge and triumph in all areas of life, including being entrepreneur, a writer, a philosopher, a traveler, a teacher, a student, a creative, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a significant other, a stranger and the list goes on. At the end of the day, I believe human beings are here for two reasons: 1.) to love one another with total acceptance, and 2.) to see what we’re made of as we create the possibilities for an abundant life for ourselves and for others. No more bullshit, let's just enjoy our lives.

Share with me what you're getting into that matters to you. It could be stepping into entrepreneurial pursuits, embarking on a journey of the self, making a crazy life change, or even if you're totally stuck. I want to connect with, support, collaborate with, and learn from as many people as possible through this blog (that means you!)

  • Thanks for the mention Lauren, appreciate you listening and glad you were able to glean something helpful. Cheers!

    • Brett – absolutely. Your podcast is quickly becoming one of my Go-To’s. Basically, for me, combining entrepreneurship/creating with mindfulness/self-awareness is like, combining peanut butter and jelly or like, graham crackers – chocolate – marsh mellows haha. It is delicious. ;o)

        Lol, food analogies always win. Thanks for the support, really appreciate it! Keep fighting the good fight.
