I’m Max Zografos: Author, teacher, and creator of simple things.
With fifteen years of experience in the IT industry, I’ve written three books, two of them published and one adapted to screenplay. I author a popular blog and contribute to online magazines like Elephant Journal. I’ve given several talks on digital creativity at the Google Campus.
Here is what’s important to me:
Writing – It’s a meditation—an inspiration muscle that needs to be practiced with daily discipline.
Yoga – It has changed me in so many ways, physically and beyond. In 2012 I certified as a Jivamukti Yoga instructor.
Ethical diet – My belief is that human salvation is directly linked to what each of us puts on our plate. I try to do what’s right but don’t take myself too seriously.
Truth and honesty – I worship it. The truest part of our self is what mystics experience in deep meditation: the unchanging, timeless Self. In that respect I subscribe to Gandhi’s saying: “Truth is God”. I strive to be as open and honest as I can in my work and writing.
Simplicity – My footprint is directly proportional to how open I stay to new ideas. For every item that comes into my life, I try to let go of two. Over the last couple of years my possessions have dwindled, and so have my worries.
Service – My passion is in finding ways to serve others. It gives purpose and meaning to my life. It feeds me. If I can serve you or your team in any way, just send me a line.
