Nothing is better than falling in love, and being in love. It’s an extraordinary and magical feeling.

Last week, I attended the Collision tech conference (Web Summit’s sister event) in Vegas for the first time, with a niggling concern that it might just be for only serious techies. So I went a long with an open mind, with a vague idea of changing my career direction in the back of my head. The energy, the excitement and such open and honest presentations from world leaders was infectious. Collision and Web Summit isn’t just for techies, but for individuals who have an idea and are optimistic about how technology can facilitate the delivery of their goal.
I was so fortunate to be surrounded by incredible, intelligent human beings. There was just so much to learn! I wish the event wasn’t so short, because that was the most fun I’ve ever had in my life. I’m still on that tech-high. I’m hoping I can make the time to attend Web Summit in Dublin this year with the new friends I made. If not, there’s always Collision 2016!
So being the studious person that I am, I had to take notes and absorb as much information as I could. Below are advice/tips from CEOs I met and I pass it on to you.
THE MAN IN THE ARENA
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Half of me is filled with bursting words and half of me is painfully shy. I crave solitude yet also crave people. I want to pour life and love into everything yet nurture my self-care and go gently. I want to live within the rush of primal intuitive decision, yet also wish to sit and contemplate. This is the messiness of life – that we all carry multitudes, so we must sit with the shifts. We are complicated creatures and ultimately, the balance comes from this understanding. Be water. Flowing, flexible, and soft. Subtly powerful and open. Wild and serene. Able to accept all changes, yet still led by the pull of steady tides. It is enough.

Slow Magic (n.): a masked musician, an “unknown, imaginary friend” who makes music for love. To love Slow Magic is to love his art. His musicianship and message moves the feet and reaches the minds of the free. Let his vibrations lead the way, he is a conjurer of change and a shaper of sounds. I choose to believe in magic, do you?

I’d like to share my current favorite mixes from two of my favorite artists. In my opinion, ODESZA and jackLNDN are the ultimate dance music world dominators right now. I’ve always had an infatuation for upbeat dance music, but these two take my love for music to another level. They’re both intelligent music surgeons and are able to create quality, effervescent mixes. They have the ability to instantly capture the attention of anyone within listening range. It’s no wonder their shows are always sold out. I’ve been fortunate to attend 5 of ODESZA’s shows and it never gets old. jackLNDN is next to be checked off my music bucket list. You’ll probably find me at Sound Club in Hollywood at his next show. Take a listen to their mixes. Enjoy, relax, and dance!
