It makes you forget where you are and brings you to a different time. And sometimes it can bring you to the Danger Zone. This is the story of Rock and Roll and how it affected our psyche.

Episode 17 - Tired of Giving In

Making a difference, is a concept we all strive to associate with, but in truth it can be a lot more complicated. Sometimes small steps help get us closer to the men or women we want to be. Sometimes our battles end up being the moments we cherish most because they help us realize what are truly capable of. It’s a complicated world and we can’t always be on the right side of every issue, it’s just not possible. Sometimes just going out and doing your best has to be enough.

People pour a lot of themselves into their work.  For some it may be a purity of effort while others pack along their influences and perspective.  It is all part of what makes us great at what we do.  When we are fortunate enough to do what we love for a living our passion and innovation can be infectious.  In good times, and in bad, people tend to allow more and more of themselves seep into their work which can sometimes have a lasting effect.
