Our conversation with Jeff was rich and full, and offered great lessons for how we can begin to lead a deeper, more meaningful life. Here are some take-aways from the discussion:
- Once people get a taste of generosity, they give more and more;
- The question “how much is enough” is very powerful, and Jeff suggests ways we can look at this in our own lives;
- It is important that we take time to slow down, turn off, and reprogram ourselves.
