Cesar Gonzalez is the CEO of StartingBloc, a selective and highly respected fellowship program for leaders of change. He believes that for the first time in human history we have the opportunity, tools, and will to build a world that works for everyone. He lives out this belief by supporting leaders to build the skills, alliances, and strength they will need to bend the arc of history. Originally from Peru, Cesar has a degree in Computer Engineering from Caltech, is an Unreasonable Fellow, a StartingBloc Fellow, and has training and experience as a facilitator and speaker. Oh, and once upon a time he taught Cuban dance professionally.
What do you do to bolster your creativity?
What personally bolsters my creativity is a sense of spaciousness: when I’m rested, when I don’t have a hundred meetings on the calendar, when I know I get to be outdoors. So when something new has to be created, the work that I do is to create space in my life.
What do you do every day that you consider important to your success?
Sleep. Next question.
The only thing that I do every day that I consider important to my success is sleeping. I meditate, I exercise, I eat well, I get very clear on my priorities every week and once every day. All these things are important, but at the end of the day, if I’m not rested, none of that stuff works.
