Rise up from the Ruin (Guest Museic Blog by: Alexander Chicco)

Written by guest blogger, Alexander Chicco: “My City of Ruins” by Bruce Springsteen is a song that holds a special purpose in my life. I use the word purpose deliberately. It does not simply “mean” something to me, it has a job to do, it is utilitarian. When I need a pacifier, when life, as…

Create Your Ripple… (Guest Museic Blog by: Marty Abruzzo)

Written by guest blogger, Marty Abruzzo: BOOM!!! Ages ago, at the beginning, the first breath of the Universe was taken. The Cosmos erupted and in fractions of a second everything we would ever know was here. Fast forward, past the melting and freezing, shaping and crystallization. Through the one celled organisms and dinosaurs right up…

Ray Dalio’s Former Assistant, The Devil Wears Prada?

Had I known that my ‘little known blog’ on Ray Dalio would be picked up by Kevin Roose and included in this provocatively titled NY Times article, I would have said so much more… The Devil Wears Prada reference he made was not the point…but obviously mainstream enough to go viral. Then this morning I…

Do you need to formulate creative explanations or seek permission, from others and yourself, to just stop for a second and do nothing? Do you think meditation is a waste of time and something only New Age people do?…

The Brilliance of Nonsense (Guest Museic Blog by: Edson Black)

Written by guest blogger, Edson Black: Brownsville Girl, by Bob Dylan. My all time favorite song; it still amazes me. It reminds me of the confusion and insanity I feel every day. There is kind of a story he is telling and it is based on some actual westerns and other ideas but for the…

Replacing Things with Human Connection (Guest Museic Blog by: Penny Wolff)

Written by guest blogger, Penny Wolff: I had more handbags than friends, more shoes than relatives. There was a time this didn’t bother me at all. I aspired to have these things; my thoughts were consumed with the attainment of more and more. More beautiful, more expensive, more socially coveted… I bought them for myself…

Insanity Brings Sanity, Full Life Revolution Style!

For those who argue that social media is nothing but superficial, I beg to differ. Perhaps I am one of the lucky ones, but I’ve met some amazing people virtually.

Shake it Out! | Shedding 2011

Let’s face it… We all have a dark side, whether or not we want to admit it. We all do things we are not proud of. We all have regrets. We’ve all experienced things we feel we did not deserve. This is because we are all souls living a human experience. This song and video…

Music is medicine; music is sanity.

This TED Talk by Robert Gupta is yet another perfect example of the healing power of music. I cannot stress enough the importance of having a healthy relationship with music. People underestimate the long-lasting impact that sounds and lyrics can have on the psyche.

What Ray Dalio taught me about Authentic Leadership and Taxidermy

I would not be an entrepreneur specializing in Authentic Leadership if it were not for my experience working for Ray Dalio at Bridgewater Associates. For approximately six months, I supported Ray Dalio (Founder), Bob Prince (Co-CIO), and Ray’s brilliant, philanthropic son Matt Dalio (Founder of The China Care Foundation) as their Executuve & Personal Assistant.…
