Jon Rojas, Interview #166
Where you live: Arlington, Virginia
What you do as a vocation or avocation?
Consultant by day, podcaster by night. The podcast is what I enjoy most. I started the Smart People Podcast with long time friend, Chris Stemp. We created it to give us an excuse to talk to amazing people. It also gave me an excuse to buy some new toys!
Your two favorite books: Linchpin by Seth Godin and Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
Your two favorite songs:
'A Day in the Life' by The Beatles and 'Johnny B. Goode' by Chuck Berry
Why you are interested in spirituality?
It's cool to think that everyone is connected somehow.
Your favorite quote:
"Stay hungry, stay foolish." - Steve Jobs
Your favorite web sites:
LifeHacker, Gizmodo, and MacRumors. I enjoy reading about new technology.
Steve Jobs, Wolverine, and my dad. All for different reasons. I think Wolverine is the most obvious!
A spiritual lesson you hope to learn?
How to truly love all people, including myself. I think love is one of the main focuses across all religions, but we still love in a world where people still hate each other for the color of their skin, orientation, or beliefs. I would love to learn how to love unconditionally.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?":
This is going to sound bad, but anytime I have music playing on my iPod. Sometimes I think about all the people that might be listening to the same music at that same exact moment.
