Being Present

A session at Cascadia Ruby 2012

Saturday 4th August, 2012

2:30pm to 3:00pm (PST)

Do you ever get distracted by a persistent bug in production while hurtling towards the ground at 122 mph?

Find it easy to think about CSS while sweating through an intense vinyasa flow yoga class?


Me neither.

And that's a really good thing.

Physical activities that demand our full attention allow us to enter a heightened mental state I call "Being Present". For me, the activity is surfing.

Take a seat in the sand, slather on the sunscreen, and I will tell tales of the mystical art of wave riding. My best days of work alway begins with a trip to the beach.
