Research shows that when you are in a positive state, you are 31% more productive, can see a 37% increase in sales, and a 19% increase in accuracy. Positive states are also associated with flow state, as well as the antithesis of burnout. As we end 2020, I gave this workshop to help my community build resilience and design a new emotional home. Key takeaways include:

5 Questions to Help You Reformat Your Life This Decade
"Amy Jin, a life coach, speaker, and leadership coach for founders in New York City, spent the first 13 years of her life working in tech and climbing the corporate ladder. She started a retail fashion startup with her best friend. She built teams and launched products for Google internationally.

Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to the present moment without judgment. That may sound simple, but its ability to provide us with agency, perspective, and compassion can give us exactly what we need in these uncertain times..."
