I enter in the interview with a question from you. It's a classic open question, so stops you

in your tracks and you have to think through it. You asked me: What do you do differently?

How do I find that thread of inspiration in my life and take it where it needs to go next?

So what's the answer for you? What's your big plan?

Well, the answer may surprise you. For me, at this particular time in my life,

I recognize that everything is about moving closer to that which is God and

without a full spiritual center - and I'm not talking about religion - I'm talking

about without understanding the fullness from which you've come. You can't

really fulfill your supreme moment of destiny and I think everybody has a

supreme moment of destiny. So what you've done and what you've been doing and

actually people have several supreme moments, some people do. So I think being

connected to that which is greater than yourself for me at this particular time

in my life is the most important thing and that's what I'm working on.

One of the things I did in next chapter I went to visit a town called TM Town,

and it's in Fairfield, Iowa. Would you imagine that in a town with a

population about 9,500, a third of the town meditates! So there's a traffic jam

in Fairfield Iowa at 5.30 with mothers and doctors and dentists and lawyers and

engineers and clerks and soccer moms all headed to the dome in Fairfield Iowa

people who looked just like you and me and they're all there

meditating and in order to prepare for doing that show I brought

Transcendental Meditation into Harpo Studios to teach me and my team how to

meditate. So we started meditating! 7 of us, 7 led to 70, led to 270, led to

now everybody in the company

meditates! 9 o'clock in the morning 4:30 in the afternoon.

No matter what's going on, we stop, we meditate and that way of being still

with ourselves coming back to the center and recognizing that something is more

important than you, it's more important than the work you're doing, it's more

important! Brings a kind of energy and intensity of energy...

An intention that we've never had before! And you can't imagine what's

happened in the company: people who used to have migraines don't, people are

sleeping better, people have better relationships, people interact with other

people better... It's been fantastic! So one thing I want to continue to do

is to center myself every day and make that a practice for myself

because I am 1000% better when I do that!

1000% better when I take myself back to something bigger than myself.
