Mark Zahra




This week, what's inspiring Mark Zahra, CEO of RebelCode.


A podcast worth listening to: 
The Diary of a CEO with Steven Bartlett. His guests vary from Simon Sinek to Bear Grylls and Jessie J. Every conversation digs deep into their real, personal stories of hardship and success that we don't get to hear anywhere else.

A concept worth understanding: 
When things aren't going your way and you have no control over the situation, take a moment to step back and calm down. Getting frustrated or putting the blame on others won't fix the situation, so there's no point in wasting your energy and making those around you feel worse.

A Twitter account worth following: 
Right now, it's got to be @ormanclark. Simple, to-the-point tweets about design and the creative process from someone who went from being in the army to becoming a successful entrepreneur and design genius.

An article worth reading: 
There's Seldom Any Traffic on the High Road. I've been a frequently frustrated person in the past, but short stories like this have taught me to dig a little deeper and focus on happiness first and foremost.

A habit worth forming: 
Exercising regularly. That can mean twice a week or six times a week. Whatever it is, find something that keeps your body moving and your mind fresh. The times I've not kept this up ended up being the toughest periods in my life. Getting active again has always been like hitting the reset button on life.
