The last time we sat down to chat however, Adam had an agenda. He wanted to interview me and talk more in-depth about Pay-What-It's-Worth (Value) pricing for a project of his. It's a topic that we have explored together many times over the years and I was excited for the conversation. Adam has recently published a book called The Year of Zen, through which he shares his learnings and expansion, online and off, over 2011.

I think it's important that even when I am "in the flow", I am still mindful of my bodily needs. Do you have any thoughts on how I can improve this situation and become better at checking-in with my body?”
