“It’s not about dollars or followers. It’s about long-lasting impact”: Mohammed Faris at WDS 2017

mohammed.faris.speaker.WDS.2017 Our second superhero in our WDS 2017 speaker video series is Mohammed Faris.

Mohammed is an international author, speaker, and leader of a community with more than one million people. He started his journey in 2007 when he became obsessed with the question: "Can faith boost productivity?" Mohammed has since spent the last decade trying to answer this question—from his own Islamic faith tradition—his popular blog, ProductiveMuslim.com, and his new book The Productive Muslim: Where Faith Meets Productivity.

At WDS 2017 Mohammed taught us about the missing soul of productivity—leveraging spirituality to boost our productivity. There's a hidden element of success that, in the Islamic tradition, is called "Barakah." It can help you do more with less and live beyond your expectations.

An Early Recap of WDS 2017: 12 Photos that Tell Thousands of Words

Last week I hosted WDS 2017, our seventh annual gathering of awesome people in Portland, Oregon. This year we focused on the theme of “Building a Better World.” The intention is to encourage and empower everyone to take action that helps others. We can’t solve every problem in the world, but that doesn’t mean we should hold back from helping.

The event unfolds in a few different settings:
  • Main-stage keynotes
  • A get-to-know-you Opening Party
  • Hundreds of independent meetups taking place all over town
  • A dozen Academies, half-day workshops focusing on specific topics
  • Additional activities and adventures, including an interactive art installation
  • A truly epic Closing Party
Oh, and we also had a lot of fun!
