HAYVN Book Group: Tracking Wonder: Reclaiming A Life of Meaning and Possibility in a World Obsessed with Productivity by Jeffrey Davis

Join us on Wednesday, July 13th from 5:30-7 pm to discuss Tracking Wonder: Reclaiming A Life of Meaning and Possibility in a World Obsessed with Productivity by Jeffrey Davis, who will be joining us for the conversation.

Discover how the lost art of wonder can help you cultivate greater creativity, resilience, meaning, and joy as you bring your greatest contributions to life.

Beyond grit, focus, and 10,000 hours lies a surprising advantage that all creatives have―wonder. Far from child’s play, wonder is the one radical quality that has led exemplary people from all walks of life to move toward the fruition of their deepest dreams and wildest endeavors―and it can do so for you, too.

A refreshing counter-voice to the exhausting narrative hyper-productivity, Tracking Wonder is a welcome guide for experiencing more meaning and joy in the present moment as you bring your greatest contributions to life.

5:30 – 7pm
