Episode #1419 Claire Schmidt: Making Mindfulness A Habit
Claire Schmidt and Jenna kick off discussing her calling to start AllVoices, the underlying reasons that 75% of harassment incidents go unreported and how we can all work to make our companies more equal and just.
We spend the majority of our time together walking through key lessons Claire has learned about why it’s critical to detach our identity from our work, how she maintains her mindfulness practice during busy times and the direct correlation between quiet time, self-improvement and the grit to tackle the challenges we are most afraid of.
Claire also shares how her parents raised her to measure success: “The real currency was always: What are you doing to make the world better?”
