Interview starts at 9:20 and ends at 41:50.

 It takes courage and vigilance and diligence to ask this question of yourself repeatedly: Where am I losing energy? Why am I losing energy? Why do I not feel engaged in life? Which is a lot of what passion is about, is engagement.

    Thanks for the great interview, Len. I listened on my drive home from the office and was so impressed that I bought Vital Signs as soon as I got home (linking from your website, of course).

    Best wishes for 2015.
