Time to Connect

Time has shown that as we reflect on our lives, what matters most are the relationships we’ve built and the people we’ve known. We find deep satisfaction in both the bonds we create with our families and friends, and the person we’ve become along the way.

Yet, we often approach these cherished relationships with little practice or guidance. For the most part, they just “happen,” or don’t. At 1440, we believe that developing more self-awareness, richer relationships, authenticity, and ultimately more compassionate communities, are some of life’s most valuable skills. The good news is, these are skills we can learn.

Making time for ourselves and our relationships is important, though it has a way of slipping down our “to do” list. But there is time. There are 1440 minutes in every day, available to each of us: minutes to be more aware, more authentic, more empathic, more connected.

And there are passionate people – we call them champions – who are dedicated, all in their own ways, to being of service to others with programs that teach and celebrate measurable progress in these life skills.

In supporting these champions, 1440 intends to improve the state of the world … one person, one relationship, one connection, and one minute, at a time.

Deeper connections. Richer relationships. More compassionate communities. It all begins by being aware — deeply and without judgment — of ourselves and others. It resonates when words and actions are authentic. It’s strengthened when we demonstrate and offer trust. And it expands when we have the courage to lead by example.

“A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”— Albert Einstein, 1921
