So inspired by Kasha Slavner and her devotion to social justice and storytelling. Let's help her make this documentary a reality!

What would I tell my 20-something self?

I’ve actually been asked this question a lot. In today's Good Life Project Jam Session I share 3 contrarian things to think about...

Understand your audience. I am 48, and I am just now learning that understanding my values is crucial to finding success and happiness in my work. It's not tragic. I love your message, but I have lost respect for you because you come across as supportive of twenty-somethings but not those of us who were not fortunate enough to figure these lessons out earlier. Congratulations on your success.

Great stuff Jonathan (and I love the photos). I have lived in CR for a year and experienced it from the other side a bit. For a tourist it can really get close to beeing a paradise, but if you are coming from a cyvilized world and trying to make a living there you better be prepared for a huge dissapointment (but it's probably worth a try anyways).

How do you stay motivated long enough for the really good stuff to happen?

Good question. I've been reinventing something for 30 years. I am highly motivated for sure. Don't know why really!

Whether you call a child "gifted" or "disabled," labels can influence future behavior in subtle and insidious ways.

I don't know how much I believe in the number of the IQ test, but I do question what it would look like if we "instead praise the efforts", which I understand there are many in today's schools who think that is the way to go, and now that kids who have been raised using those methods are reaching the workforce are surprised to find out that employers don't pay based on effort.

Having gone through numerous controversies during my own education regarding homo and heterogenous classrooms based on intelligence, I'm not sure which is the better solution, and I get that grades and an absolute system might not be the best system for all students, but passing kids through the system when they don't understand foundational concepts sets them up for failure later on. (I was shocked when I found out that our school doesn't generally keep anyone back until ninth grade "for social reasons". So we end up with kids who can barely read in high school (I've heard that one can graduate without being able to read, but I don't know about that personally).

Dad | Husband | Entrepreneur | Author | Speaker
Introduction

Jonathan Fields is a New York City dad, husband and lawyer turned award-winning author, media-producer and entrepreneur. His last book, Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel For Brilliance was named the top personal development book in 2011 by 800-CEO-READ.


Jonathan’s current focus, Good Life Project, is global movement that inspires, educates, connects and supports mission-driven individuals in the quest to live better, more engaged and aligned lives. #WakeUpPeople.


Fueling this quest is a rapidly-expanding digital media, community-building and education venture that produces a top-rated podcast, a broadcast-quality web-series seen in more than 150 countries and educational programs for mission-driven leaders, entrepreneurs, and makers. #OccasionallyHeSleeps #Not!


Jonathan also speaks globally on aligned entrepreneurship, mindful innovation and living a good life and the power of promoting a "good life" culture within organizations.


In 2013, Forbes named him one of 25 entrepreneurs to follow on twitter, along with Richard Branson, Mark Cuban and Randi Zuckerberg, an accolade he had inked on his lower-back to impress the hipsters at power yoga. #OmShantiIRule! Forbes has also named his blog one of the top 100 for entrepreneurs.


He has been featured widely in mainstream and online media, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, FastCompany, Inc., Entrepreneur, USA Today, Real Simple, HOW, O Magazine, Self, Outside, Slate, Vogue, CNBC, Fox News, PBS Nightly Business Report and thousands of other places that sound cool, but don't impress his daughter all that much. #UmLikeWhatsTVDad?


When not building ventures, writing and producing, he can be found dancing around his living room with his wife and daughter, writing in the third person and listening to “real music.” #AirSupplyFanClub.
