Episode notes

I hope you are having a great start to 2023. I’ve been re-listening to some old archive episodes and I wanted to re-share this conversation with Beau Miles with you because there is so much gold in it. I don’t know about you but I find myself at this time of year looking for adventure (obviously it’s Summer here in Australia), but then in January, it’s also a good time to be thinking of how we want to show up in the world and Beau has a beautifully authentic way of looking at life and, more recently, parenting.

Something I missed on my first listen to this interview was how Beau describes the need for becoming a time management machine when you have a child. We all only have 168 hours in a week and as you take another slice out of the pie it leaves less time for the other slices. In this case Beau talks about splitting time with his wife Helen in parenting duties but also the importance of carving out time to fill your own cup, as Beau puts it, doing the things that “keep Beau being Beau”.

I hope you enjoy this chat with Beau Miles as much as I did.

If you haven’t come across Beau’s videos yet, they are amazing. Here are some of my favourites:

Also, if you want some local adventure, check out Beau’s book, Backyard Adventurer.

Big Hug


PS Just out of interest, what are the things that keep you, you?
