[MUSIC PLAYING] I talked a lot about meditation on Maori TV, on our show. It's something that I do pretty much every day. I wouldn't say I'm perfect at it. There's just sometimes when it doesn't happen. But it also doesn't have to happen in the morning. Sometimes if the day takes off and I'm on a plane at 5:00 AM and I need to meditate in the afternoon, that'll happen. I do think it's crucial, but it is a moment to moment practice. It's something that if you're sitting around a dinner table with people, like don't have your phone out.
Put it away. Choosing a time of night where if you're with a partner, or your kids, or your parents, or anyone, not to have that thing sitting there so you can just go check it. One of the most profound times recently was, ironically, during Hurricane Sandy. When that happened, I was in New York City, and thankfully, we were in a part of the city that didn't necessarily get damaged, but we didn't have electricity.
We didn't have any running water. We didn't have anything for a few days. And it was such a beautiful experience because I got to connect with friends and we'd have to make a date to say, OK, we're all going to meet at x place at 6 o'clock for dinner. And you can't text that you're going to be late. You can't not show up because people would be terrified if you're OK. And we've taken that experience and we've transferred it over to weekends when we all spend time together.
And we just put our phones in a basket and they don't come out until the end of the weekend. So I think this idea of being present and making that a daily practice-- we are not connected to that phone-- it's hugely important for our well-being. And I think it's important for entrepreneurs to really stay connected to their creativity. [MUSIC PLAYING]
