Every episode of The Slow Home Podcast leaves me inspired, but today’s conversation with Anthony Ongaro was just…beyond. In fact, it’s been damn-near life changing.
I sat down to chat with Anthony in the hope of uncovering his personal journey – particularly how an Amazon shopping addiction proved the wake-up call he needed to make a change. And while we dig into his realisation that “Amazon is the one-click solution to mostly made up problems,” we go much deeper into intentional living and what it means to break the twitch.
We also talk about the importance of taking those ridiculously easy first steps and – HERE’S THE KICKER – how that first step can very easily prove to be our downfall. When we convince ourselves that buying the book, taking the course or making the mental shift is enough, we find ourselves rich in self-help books and low in actual self help.
I can’t tell you how much I loved this conversation, and find myself thinking about it a lot. I hope you enjoy it too!
