Episode 2: Think It, Do It with Bob Goff
Welcome to The Drumbeat of Life podcast, where your always curious host, DonJay Rice, speaks with a wide variety of servant leaders to uncover the drumbeat of their lives.
A drumbeat is what keeps someone motivated, keeps their joy alive, and refills their cup every day. Drumbeats can be found through our highest highs or our lowest lows. Through this podcast, you and I will learn how to implement these drumbeats to better our own lives and relationships.
This week’s guest is none other than a former lawyer turned author, philanthropist, and dedicated guide to whimsy, Bob Goff.
In this episode, Bob and I dig deep into how to find your joy, stop overthinking, and most importantly start doing. Bob shares his secrets to avoiding the trap of distraction on the way to achieving those big dreams we all have, no matter how long it’s been since we put those dreams aside.
Bob Goff is the author of the New York Times bestselling books Love Does, Everybody Always, Dream Big, and Undistracted. He is the Honorary Consul to the Republic of Uganda, an attorney, and the founder of Love Does—a nonprofit human rights organization operating in India, Uganda, Nepal, Somalia, Afghanistan, USA, Congo, Dominican Republic, Ukraine, Israel, and Burkina Faso.
He’s a lover of balloons, cake pops, and helping people pursue their big dreams. Bob continues to be inspired by friendships he’s developed with others around the world who live their lives pursuing strategic ways to help others. You can typically find Bob writing and taking calls from his boat, welcoming people to The Oaks—his Southern California retreat center, or at an event speaking.
Bob’s greatest ambitions in life are to love others, do stuff, and, most importantly, to hold hands with his wife, Sweet Maria Goff, and spend time with their amazing kids and grandkids.
