Last week, I made an impulse decision to remedy a tough work day by heading to a performance that I knew nothing about. Within 90 minutes, I was inspired by a new story, heard a different perspective, discovered three new musicians to follow, and left feeling energized. My workload the next day remained just as heavy, yet I arrived refreshed and re-connected to the why behind it all. So this week, follow your gut to where it (or where this vibrant city) leads you—be that to a professional development workshop or just a night at the theater. Because both are good and necessary to getting our work done. Find that balance of business and inspiration-seeking in this week's Read, Go, Listen, and Apply!
