The Joy of Work-Life Integration
In this episode I interview my friend and ex colleague Tim Jameson.
Tim has a wide variety of interests and life experience, with musician and writer at the top of the list; he’s what some might call a “multipotentialite”.
He loves thinking and communicating about a variety of topics, ranging from philosophy and psychology, to leadership, emerging technologies and ‘the future world’.
Describing himself as an “insuppressible people ponderer”, Tim’s main aim is to help people slow down and reach a place of peaceful fulfilment within themselves, regardless of life circumstance.
Tim lives in Sussex with his wife and three children.
In this episode we discuss:
