Do you have visions of waking up without fear? Without the terror of a backlog of emails queued up and demanding your immediate response… or the latest batch of social media updates from people you don’t even know that well clamoring for your attention?

Meico Marquette Whitlock has been there. He used to be like you. He was on the utter brink of burnout from work and tech overload. But several years ago, Meico had a breakthrough — and he shares what he’s learned along the way with us in this insightful episode.

Meico is the Founder and CEO of Mindful Techie and a sought-after speaker and trainer on mindfulness, technology, and productivity. Speaking with him gave me some great ideas to use to get control of my own work-life and tech-life balance (yikes), as well as take a hard look at my digital activities (double yikes).

Here are some of the topics we discussed:

  • The process that he used to encourage more calm and mindfulness with his team at a nonprofit
  • How to reclaim our lives from email, social media, devices and live life on our own terms
  • What people usually get wrong when thinking of work-life-tech “balance”
  • Meico’s new book Intention Deficit Disorder

A Meico Whitlock quotable: “You can do it all and have it all — just not at the same time.”
