Life is about having and building and growing so might as well appreciate it. Learn to appreciate what you have right now by learning to live in the present. Living in the present doesn’t mean that you need to forget about building up and achieving your dreams. You can still get things done and prepare for your future while enjoying your life. Finding joy may also mean that we must learn to harness the combined strength of our hearts and brain.
In this episode, Nadia, a peak performer and an Executive Coach, talks about how our hearts and brains are connected in living a zealous life. And how living in the present can get you where you want to be in terms of joy, success, and life.
My guest today, Nadia Carta, Google’s Head of Industry in US, inspires us to seize every opportunity, savor the present, and embrace the beauty of life, despite the hectic and chaotic nature of our daily existence.

Having coached and mentored hundreds of people from all walks of life, a pattern emerged: more often than not we go through our days on autopilot without truly savoring life, feeling grateful for what we have and on-fire about our existence. So she decided to create a movement, Spark Your Zeal, to radically evolve our attitudes, invigorate our spirits, and to inspire and show people how to bring the fire back into their life and work, and turn obstacles into the fuel that achieves a richer internal and external bottom line.
