Model S Price Cut, X Range Increase(?)
"Everybody Rob our here, and today we were talking about a price cut on Tesla's model s an update on the full self-driving rewrite an SNP credit rating upgrade some news out of China India that a couple of other topics as well. We'll start off with the price cut tesla today the US lowered the base price for both the long range and the performance version of the Model S. by three thousand dollars meaning the starting prices dropped from about seventy five, thousand dollars before to about seventy two thousand dollars now and Tesla has similar. We cut the price in China for the mile s by about three percent I don't believe. It has been updated in Europe but all the pricing those markets are different. So let me know otherwise if it has changed in your market this is the second Prescott on the Model S. This year following a five thousand dollar price cut on the vehicle back in May, which also applied to the Model X. at that time. Interestingly, this update is only for the model s not the Model X. That means the base price spread on both the long range and performance versions of these vehicles is now eight thousand dollars I don't think this is terribly surprising given. The fact that we are now in Q. Four and Tesla does still. Have a shot at hitting five, hundred, thousand vehicle deliveries this year but it's GonNa take every single vehicle to do that I, think and on the s next combined unfortunately, tussle doesn't break those out individually anymore. But on those two vehicles combined they have been producing and delivering under the capacity Tesla in their queue update letter said that they had a current installed annual capacity out of Fremont for s and x combined and ninety thousand per year. That's twenty, two, thousand, five, hundred per quarter but tesla hasn't delivered more than twenty thousand as next combined since the end of twenty eighteen excluding the first two quarters this year due to. Production Shutdowns Tesla's at that point in time has averaged production of around sixteen thousand s annex per quarter. So they certainly seemed to have some additional capacity and that should be the case for batteries as well because these used the eighteen sixties from Panasonic, in Japan, which have previously accommodated s an extra rates around twenty, five, thousand per quarter in Q. Three, tesla produced around seventeen thousand ax in our previous conversations about potential Q. Four production. I just held that study at seventeen thousand I. Now think that will actually increase this quarter q four is naturally a stronger quarter for automotive demand tussle now, early in the quarter stacks this price. Got On top of it, and we also had the Plan Model S. announced at battery. Day? Which I think could have removed some doubts for some buyers that may have been waiting for battery day in anticipation of potentially other updates to tussles lineup. So I think you for should be pretty solid for model s and not to be outdone entirely by the model as we may actually have a range update for the Model X. DMZ member cold weather e. v. last night posted an update that they had just taken delivery of a twenty twenty one then model x. and they were surprised to see that on the monroney sticker which. Is that sticker in the vehicle comes with all new vehicles and has things like efficiencies migrating, and one of those things is EPA rating this person will surprised to see that the EPA rating for Model X. was three, hundred, seventy, one miles that is higher than the previous rating of three hundred, fifty, one miles of range, which is what tussle still lists on their design studio. So we'll have to wait and see if we hear this from more people obviously this just as one source at this point in time, and this user also does say quote I haven't charged to one hundred percent but when extrapolate my current state of charge? percent two miles, it should give three hundred and fifty one miles at one, hundred percent and quote. So maybe it is still three hundred, fifty, one miles or maybe the software just hasn't been updated for this new version yet I think the latter is more likely but again, we'll wait and see this would be five point seven percent increase to range, which I think brings to mind a couple of things. We earlier this year had a similar increase in range to the Model S., which took it from around three hundred eighty at remember the exact rating up to four hundred miles per charge. But when that happened the Model X.. Actually, stayed constant. So this could be the X. catching up with those s updates previously, or we do also know that Panasonic has been working to improve energy density in Nevada by about five percent five plus percent. So maybe they made more changes to the eighteen six fifty's that supply the model x. from Japan, and then maybe those new cells would be adding this five percent plus range. If that were the case we would expect to see this also happened in the Model S. probably. So anybody that is taking new deliveries of either the or the X. Please take a look at what your monroney sticker says and let us know. Next up, we have an update on Tesla autopilot rewrite Alon on twitter yesterday said Quote Limited Fasd Beta, releasing on Tuesday next week as promised. This will at first be limited to a small number of people who are expert and careful drivers and quote we last had an update on this about a month ago when John said quote releasing private Beta in two to four weeks public. Beta. Centers opt in four to six weeks after that. Then all US Tesla owners mid-december above schedules contingent upon not encountering major unexpected setbacks and quote. So this new tweet, it's a little bit less clear on which step or in if it is that I private. Beta. That he on his talking about here or if it's that limited public Beta for early access owners but to me, it does sound like that first. Step of being a private Beta. So that will come out next week one week from today on October twentieth. Apparently, if that's the case, it's about a week and a half out from that previous timeline but I think everybody can be pretty happy with that. If we extrapolate from that same timeline before using these new dates, we'd be four to six weeks out from early access, which would put a day range for. That from November seventeenth to December first depending on how wide this initial releases that early access program update that might be the first time that we actually start to see youtube videos and things of the sort pop up for the new rewrite though it is possible that we may see some of that as early as next week.
The Glass I Love and the Glass I Use
"This is digital story podcast number seven, Fifty, eight September Twenty Ninth Two Thousand Twenty today's a theme is the glass I love and the glass I use. I'm Derek Story. No doubt one of the best investments any artists can make. is in quality photography lenses and I do have some beauties. But what's fascinating to me is that I have lenses that I absolutely love and would be very reluctant to let go up and then I have those optics that are used on a daily basis. and. The funny thing is the two aren't always the same. I'll explain why on today's TVs photography podcast. So. Before I get into that glass itself, it's funny when I was writing this podcast made me think of a scene from moonstruck really terrific movie with share and Olivia Caucus Nicholas Cage. Just an outstanding story in great cast the whole deal. So share comes home one night and I think her mom was up in her bedroom. And share went into say good night tour after she had seen Nicholas Cage, she had started seeing him. And her mom you. Ask her what she's been doing and share told her. And her mom Olivia Dukakis Goes D love them and share goes Ma I think I do. And Olympia Dukakis goes I'm so sorry. I'm not exactly sure why I'm thinking of that story while I'm thinking about these lenses that I love and the ones that I like. Other than I think what Olympia Dukakis was saying is that when you love them, you end up having this attachment. That you stick with through thick and thin whereas if you just like them maybe a right thing start to go south and you're okay with partying ways and you know these lenses. I'm going to talk about a kind of fall into these two categories and it was fascinating to me because. I think going through my inventory because I'm not shooting as much right now because for obvious reasons, all my jobs are higher are no more right now I do find myself going back. Into, my inventory and just making sure the cameras are working. You know just checking things just keeping everything ready so that when life comes back I'm ready to go. and. I've discovered Dan I have lenses that I'm using right now. I use them all the time and then I'll come across a lens in the Lens Safe and I go oh, I love this land so much but maybe haven't shot with it for a month two months three months but yet I wouldn't let go of that Lens basically no matter what and maybe the lenses I'm using everyday right now Okay. Go. That's Kinda weird. Isn't it? It's kind of very interesting. You know what I'm GonNa do today is I'm going to talk about five lenses and I'm not gonNa tell you. which category they go into rather the like or left category I'm just gonNA describe the lenses can have you guess along the way and then at the end I'll tell you the answers. Okay. So we're going to have a little fun today to illustrate that point I. WanNa to tell you about one lens from my past that I definitely loved, and that was the Canon e F eighty, five, millimeter f one eight and I bought this lens decades ago I mean back when I was shooting weddings with a else Alon thirty five millimeter film camera, I bought that lands. About three hundred, fifty dollars then which is a fair of change you know when you're just getting started with your career but at the same time, it was more affordable than other lenses this class. And I mean, I just love the short shortely because it was fast F. One point eight it was light. had very quiet focus the ultrasonic motor was just terrific on it was a good looking land. And most importantly, it took great pictures I mean really great pictures. In fact, one of the metal prints that I have hanging in the studio downstairs was captured with that lens on a cannon five D in Washington DC. and. Hanging on the wall downstairs. Then you know you are in rarefied Erica's that's the stuff I have to look at every day. In a better be good. Alright. That'd be good. that. Lands is responsible for that shop. Here's the funny thing as much as I loved that Lens I didn't shoot with it that often. I mean normally I would have zoom on the camera body I in the film days. But then even later on when I got the five d and the five d mark to I'd have something on there like the e F twenty, four to one. Oh, five, a four and. That's what I shot with most of the time. And then every now, and then for some reason, sometimes, I didn't even really know why I would pull out the eighty five f one eight and I go sheet with that or I'm going to put it in my bag today or whatever candidates cradle it carefully and said it in there. And then when I shot with it, it was always just sort of this wonderful experience and I go. Wow that's a kind of an interesting phenomenon how this went with this lens
Summer Stargazing Special
"Time once again for to be has to go on hiatus. You've got a couple of months on your own to explore the night sky, but before we say goodbye. We'd like to make a few suggestions. And I think it's important that we are going to have a totally northern hemisphere. Perspective here. Sorry. We're sorry, but we. We live in the northern summer. Is the Warburg time in our minds? July August that's when the heat arrives for the folks in Australia These Zealand. South Africa South America, we understand that these recommendations will not be quite as relevant, but we'll try to make the change what things you can enjoy as well. Nights with your longer nights. Yeah, many of the objects you see the same fix, but it's just it's colder. It's not it's not. It's not as fun to go outside and hang out. What can people see this summer? I think the most important thing to go out and try, and do is just observe our milky. Way Find Yourself a Hammock Alon Chair someway to dislike back and relax. Use Your binoculars borrow someone else's binoculars if you don't have any. And just explore that band of light that goes through. Is the summer triangle, which is AL, Tair Vega and the NAB. Really will help you find well. One of the cooler regions. Angle. Well we have the Ring Nebula not too far away from Vega. cygnus is home of Algeria which is one of the coolest double stars in the sky with one extremely red. Star in one extremely blue star that become visible with. Maser. Just just explore as starting point make no plans sub to figure out where the Milky Way is and just scandal lawn along looking for faint fuzzies, and and this is. For, you I'm not sure how good of a Milky Way view. You have there. I have a very good view to the sky, but I still it's worth heading out of town. To get away from the light pollution to get to those truly dark skies, and I know for a lot of people you look at the dark sky maps for the folks on the East Coast and it's it's a nightmare. You you will have to go, but but this is the kind of event that that if you have not experienced the milky, way with your own eyes or If you have not. And, you're looking for something to do this summer, it's a perfect. Like socially distanced activity, because you can take your family hop in the car plan and evening where you drive out. Maybe you're going to take a couple of hours, but anywhere on the east coast. You can get to dark skies within a couple of hours even from the core of New York City. If you're able to to drive this, some forest that are. A couple of hours away where you can see the Milky Way, no problem and just go. Plan a night of it. Leave a little late. Let people sleep in the car. While you drive out there and so you can arrive at like. In the evening. And Get a beautiful view of of the night sky, or set up early and then everyone pass out, and then have an alarm clock go off at like one of the morning and get everybody up to be able to see it. But. You should do this and it's. There's no reason not to camping is somewhat safe. Yeah, yeah, outside away from other people. Yeah, it's it's the restrooms you have to worry about, but campgrounds are open, and some of the primitive campgrounds are about as safe as you can get. Away from everything, except for the raccoons always hang your garbage up freight. Or lead in the car. But. Yeah I think that is great, and so what are the? What are the ways that people can get the most out of the Milky Way? Honestly the best thing that you can do is start out where you know where you are on the sky. This is where using the summer triangle in the extremely bright star Vega as a starting point can be a great way to get yourself oriented. Find that Bright Vega. Use It to figure out where the NAB is Cygnus the swan use it defined tear for Aquilla once. You're oriented. Stick your Benach in the middle and scan, and every time you find something, faint and Fuzzy. Pause and then either use your phone or finding chart to figure out what amazing Nebula it is. You found this time. This is the cool thing about just. Streaming through. With your binoculars is, you're just GONNA. Keep finding nebulous star cluster nebulous star cluster one after another. Is Is global or star cluster season, so you can see a in Hercules. There's a couple a bunch all scattered around, and because we're seeing them above and below the disk of the milky, way into warmer, able to start seeing the core of the Milky Way. These are all starting to rise up in the sky as well so again, so Milky Way and again. If you have not seen that, knock that off your list. This is your chance this summer time and Sagittarius and the heart of our galaxy is up in the evening for part of the summer, so it's perfectly timed for the family. And and this gives you a chance to say. I am looking at a supermassive black hole right now. You can't see it. It's black hole, but you're looking in the correct direction, and so that's just one of those. Moments of finding your place in the universe of I'm standing here on this planet, looking at the heart of my galaxy, and in that direction there's a supermassive black hole. When I was in Australia in. July so I guess it was around that time, and it was their winter, but it was still very warm, because I was fairly far north. You could see the core of the Milky Way just passing directly overhead, absolutely stunning, and then because where I was, the skies were so dark. You could see those Nebula? Does these little faint? Reddish patches in the sky when you looked with Benach healers, and when you took a picture with your with your camera, you got to see.

Cracking the Leadership Code with Alain Hunkins
"Hello, hello, welcome to dose of leadership so happy you're tuning in. Man. What a crazy week! It's been for me I feel like I've been out of touch with those of leadership I've been so busy with family one of my daughters. Unexpectedly, move up to Detroit so to deal with that. Then, I started flying again I actually started flying into. Believe this. Flu Can re second at the beginning of twenty twenty. And then I went on my first trip last week mid June. I'm recording this. On June twenty fifth. was a week ago I went to Inchon. China in Beijing or Inchon South Korea, and in Beijing China and then back to Dallas. Do you believe that? An implant again tomorrow ahead in the Paris of the world seemingly is coming back to normal. But it still feels weird out there I tell you it just does not seem the same. Even when I was in John, it seemed like World War Z. almost there was nobody the airport. Didn't have any passengers on the plane we were picking up. Cargo of all. Things didn't stay the night in China. Because we can't I wouldn't want to. Because of the Cova deal. But it was just weird, but it was good on one hand, but still a stark reminder of of how different things are and. It's a little uneasy and I'll be honest with you. Leadership has been attested and challenged. In the. Early. I really do think this is trying times for everybody but This is a great opportunity for leadership, and hopefully this show Dosa leadership is a great resource for you a free resource for you in your leadership journey. Where authentically we deal with leadership topics, and how all how helping you to become a better leader? That's what it's all about and I know I certainly been tested over the last two weeks. And I'm just like you and it's glad to be back in the saddle and giving you a great episode another great conversation. With Alon Hunkin 's Alana's. Spelled L. A. L., A. N., the French pronunciation, but demand. What a great guest! I really connected with him! We've been trying to get him on the show for quite some time. Even looking back to February and March and and we finally got it done. By about three or four weeks ago when I recorded this conversation and I'm excited to bring this to you this week. He's just a one of the great ones I really. Do. You think so? He's a sought after keynote speaker facilitators coach. He is a leadership expert. He's leadership junkie. It's right in. To the dose of leadership tribe. And he wrote a great book in fact, if I could write a book if I can wake up and morning, said Richard You could write any type of book that want. I think I would write. Like he did and cracking the leadership code. It's really good. It's about three secrets to building strong leaders. And he got. He has a lot of science behind e discovering the brain science behind leading people. He's got a lot of great real life leadership stories in the book and at the end of the day. The book is a practical leadership toolkit to become a better leader. That's what it's all about just like. This show is something that you can put in your arsenal in your tool kit and become a better leader. And I like what he uses to. In the tool kit as you know as with me, I got the four CS Alon has the three CS in to him. It's all about connection, communication and collaboration I love that I absolutely love that. So we deep dive into that in this conversation and we we also what I love about him. He's the first guest that I've had a near that. That references Frederick? And I do that a lot in my keynotes, and so I cannot stand Frederick. Winds Will Taylor and The idea of scientific management theory that came about, and they dusted revolution and I. Still reason why I don't like him is because of the way that he viewed people. He viewed workers as cogs in a machine and He's a mechanical engineer by trade. And he looked at these things, and anyway it Frederick was a Taylor in my opinion has created this. Cultural Rift that still is with us today, even though it's been debunked for the past sixty years that the type of scientific management theory doesn't work in the dynamic environments that we're dealing with today, it works in certain situations, but not overall and the mindset and the concepts that were brought forth from Frederick. Wendell Taylor are still we're dealing with them today in all the organizations particularly large organizations. And leadership is the solution the type of ship we talk about here on those leadership and Alon. Gets a one hundred percent, and so we deep dive into that. You're really gonNA. Enjoy that. My highly encourage you to go get his book. Cracking the leadership code again if I. Could write a book. It would be one like this it's it's that good
Can We Change The Way We Feel About Race?
"Ruth. It's just so great to have you on entangled today. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you. I WANNA. Tell our audience a little bit about your background. You grew up in the late sixties in south central La. It was right in the heart of the civil rights movement. Can you tell us a little bit about some of your observations and feelings during this time? Yes I grew up in south central Los Angeles. I come from a family of eight I have seven civil lanes I actually have five now, and we grew up in a working class neighborhood, and with a single mom. It was very alive in terms of civil rights activities, but it was also very alive with jazz so there was this interesting blend which I really value music a lot because I think it brings the certain creative edge and comfort to some of the struggles around race. At least that was my experience in my family, who were jazz, musicians, and percussionist as well and so there were just a lot of struggle a lot of. Of Hardship, there was a lot of physical violence in in my family. You have to keep your arms around your kids tight. Because somebody could hurt him, somebody could snatch him. Some system could be imposed on them, so I felt that tightness both in the community, but also inside my family and one of the most vivid images from me as a young person around race was watching my great grandmother pace quite a bit. She worried a lot about these black bodies at work in her life, and she couldn't protect them and I think I just saw the wear and tear and the cumulative chronic fatigue that she lived and breathed moment to moment. And I remember how hard it was that I couldn't comfort her and when she died. I think I made some of deal with myself I'm not going out like that. I think my great grandmother would be happy to know I'm doing walking meditation instead of pacing the. Floor so it was an atmosphere of fear and trepidation, not really knowing what's GonNa hit next Alon of sadness and joy what I think mostly an atmosphere of fear that we tried to make the best of. As, the little girl how did you make sensible of this well I don't know if there was any kind of intellectual way that that was happening I felt like my body absorb the lot of what I could make sensitive. So by the time I was twenty seven, I I had open heart surgery from a mitral valve prolapse, but I think it was really because the body was just absorbing so much. That felt pretty unbearable I mean I. Come from people that found a way to be resilient. My people are from slaves trying to deal with mothers having their babies taken from an so. There's been this kind of in the. Way of figuring things out this not so much in the head, and so I think that really work that heart muscle in a big way. At least for me to see, that is a really big turning point for you. Maybe it's like your heart broke. Open exactly I mean I think that it was I came to see a different from a surgical procedure to a more spiritual procedure because I often say, that was my first silent retreat when I woke up from that surgery and could feel the weight in my life. That was really. Really on the inside, sitting on the top of my chest now, and just that whole awareness of what this body was holding, and over time what relief it was to just have a procedure, if you will are an invention on the heart, where I was actually trusting white people with my heart something I didn't really have full access to I. Come from a family. That didn't trust going into. Into doctors and cause a lot of people in my family wanted to the dodgers, and didn't come back all this big story in our community, and so there was a lot of fear, so race was always wrapped around things in my life, there was always a racial way that I had to be concerned with because my body and people that look like me and dark bodies are targets of harm. Harm. I mean that's just kind of the world. We certainly growing up and to some degree we see that with the uprise right now of so much ratio hatred in boldness and rain country
Horses Recognize Pics of Their Keepers
"Recognize our friends faces. And we're not alone. Many social animals can identify individuals of their own species by their facial features. That's important because they need to be able to adjust their behaviour. Depending on who they encounter and research has shown that some species of monkeys birds and domesticated animals can even distinguish among different faces by looking at photographs alone. Scientists have also wondered whether domesticated animals that have coexisted with people for thousands of years can recognize different human faces for example. We've shared more than five thousand years of our history with horses. Plus they can live up to thirty years and may need to retain a great deal of information about this throughout their lifetimes. Foll just lay. Alon said of the French National Research Institute for Agriculture Food and Environment didn't experiment to find out how well horses can recognize individual people in photographs. She and her team. I taught the horses how to choose between two side by side images by touching their noses to a computer screen. The horses were then shown photos of their current keeper alongside faces of Unfamiliar Humans. They had never seen photos of any of the people before the horses correctly identified their current keeper and ignored the Stranger's face about seventy five percent of the time significantly. Better than chance. What's more the horses? Also preferentially picked photos of their previous keeper a person they hadn't seen in six months in fact even though the horses didn't get it right every single time at least as accurate and picking out the previous keeper as they were at their current one. The findings are in the Journal. Scientific reports the results suggest that not only can horses differentiate between familiar and unfamiliar human faces. They intuitively understand. That photographs are two dimensional. Representations of real life without any other cues such as odor sound. And they're even better at this than our oldest animal companion the domestic dog. In addition horses seem to have a robust locked her memory for human faces consistent with their long lifespan and history of domestication in experiments the researchers would like to test whether looking at photos of people that they have had bad experiences with in the past. Mike Class Horses to act anxious. Or even avoidance so maybe think twice before doing anything in a stable that might give a horse along
Have a Vision or Be Doomed to Failure. Vision Scripting, with Michael Hyatt
"What's up everybody? Welcome to session. Four hundred seventeen of the smart passive income podcast. My Name is Pat. Flynn here to help you. Make more money safe more time and help people to today. Like I said we have a dear dear friend of Mine Michael. We actually went fly fishing together last year. Through Wyoming and Idaho and it was awesome. We talked a lot and I'm excited because I learned about this book coming your way and it is available now Amazon again. That's the vision driven leader here. He is Michael Hyatt from Michael Dot Com. Michael Welcome back to the smart passive income podcast. Thanks for being here again. Things Pat. It's so good to be on again. You know every time you come on you have something amazing to share in this time related to your upcoming book vision. Vision is so important and I think that most entrepreneurs we often dive into something without fully realizing the vision of where we wanna go and we want to get our hands dirty so quickly but why is it a mistake to take action without first thinking about where we wanna go in the vision that we have to use a metaphor. It's almost like jumping in the car with your entire family. And say hey. Let's go on a trip. We're going to add not really sure. But it's GONNA BE FUN. You know you could waste a lot of resources. Spent a lot of time and be very busy the entire time and never get to a destination that's meaningful and so I think that's that's true in an organization to you know there's so much sideways energy so much waste of resources. When we're not clear about the destination I think even you know in productivity which is a space that I've written a lot about knows a particular interest to you pat. You know productivity without a vision. You can end up very busy doing a lot of stuff. That doesn't really matter at the end of the day. And I think that the secret to having more margin your life to have it a business that you run instead of a business that runs you is to have a clear vision. Where you can create alignment and then drive the execution around that vision. Well here's my question around that because I know as entrepreneurs sometimes we don't fully know exactly where we're going in and we often here especially from people like Seth Godin you know just ship right and then kind of ready. Fire aim right. So how's your thoughts about you know finding a vision versus well we have to take action somewhere in a business plan is just kind of a gas. How do we? How do we balance that? And what is truly the methods for for really realizing this vision that you were speaking of. That's a great question. And certainly you're not going to have the kind of clarity at the beginning of the process that you'll develop as you move toward the objective but I still think it's important to take a stab at it just because you can't have absolute clarity doesn't mean that you shouldn't try. You know to have a vision for where you're going is critically important in terms of shaping your activities like. I I tell the story in the book in the Vision Driven Leader where I started the publishing company back in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and we had all kinds of energy we had investors. We had a mission and we were certainly had lots of opportunities but unfortunately because we didn't have a vision. There was no filter to really help determine where we are going to put our resources. We're GONNA put our effort and as a result we were kind of just. Every opportunity became a new thing that we pursued and it was at the end of the day. It was our opportunities. There were undoing because they were all over the map and we were just spread too thin so a vision provides that focus it provides. That clarity directs our actions so we don't squander our resources so that we don't waste our energy so that it's focused and so that it has an outcome that we're pursuing it makes me think of an really bullish on Tesla right now at this time of recording. You know the stock is up like crazy. There's a lot of fun and exciting. News happening in the world of Tesla and it makes me think of their sort of mission and vision which is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy and lot of us have heard of obviously Elon. Musk and his sort of overall plan to change the world and it started with division of just okay. We want sustainable energy but then it started to help him determine okay. Well what might the steps be to make that happen? And of course he started with the roadster a higher level car that he was going to sell for lots of money to a few people that would then Supply the income and resources for the Model S. which came out in two thousand twelve around that time which then made money to then make the more production ready model three which has just recently come out and it's coming in stages but obviously it's always always based on this vision of accelerating the world's transition and it couldn't have happened with the model three at first and so you know we. The hard thing is Alon is just another world but I think that we can all benefit from seeing these things that we want to get into in such a way kind of far into the future. Do we begin determine what our vision is? Do you have any thoughts or questions or exercises that we can do right now to figure this out absolutely. Well I think first of all it's important to define what a vision is and so in the book I define it this way. I say vision is clear inspiring practical and attractive picture of your organization's future in other words. It's something that's a superior state to where you are right now. Typically I recommend to our business. Coaching clients have about five hundred people in our program. Right now business owners that it needs to be about three years from now you know beyond that technology is changing so fast. The for most businesses and there are some exceptions but for most businesses beyond that. It's just a wild guess less than that. And it's not going to be strategic so a written statement Really a script. I call it a statements now sufficient but a script that encompasses for areas. Where you talk about your team your products your marketing and your impact in the world and so it needs to be written and it needs to be written in the present tense but this is not something you know. You'RE GONNA cook up by you. Know going into the mountains and meditating and having some mystical experience this is more like just like when you're trying to draft the blog poster draft anything. You end up with with something that approximates what you WanNa do. But you're going to refine and edited over time but I recommend to people that are trying to formulate a vision to get away for a day and to go through a series of questions. In fact I have these questions in the book. Their vision prompting questions. Because I know how difficult it is for most people to sit down and and stare at empty screen you know it could be quite intimidating so this is almost like not quite but almost like paint by number so I have a series of questions. If you did nothing but answer these questions you would have probably eighty five to ninety percent of your vision script done and is this something you do on your own or do you do it with other members of your team together. I highly recommend that you start doing it alone you know. I've been a part of a process where I worked for a company where the CEO came in and said look our investors are asking me what my vision is. I'm not really a vision. Kinda guy so when appointed committee to figure out the vision and he put me in charge of it. Well it would have been awesome if he'd had a seat at the table or if you've given us some kind of idea for he wanted to go. But this is not something that you delegate. This is something that I think is integral to being a good leader vision or being a leader means that you're leading people somewhere will. Where's the somewhere you know whereas whereas the destination you're taking everybody so I recommend that you get alone. You get very clear you know step into the future stand in the futures at were use your imagination which is a. I think a God given faculty that we have to begin creating the future and describe which you see. Write it down. Write it in the present tense as though it were already happening and then once you get that first draft dinner time to go back to the team and say look. I've been thinking a lot about vision where we're going and this isn't perfect. It needs a lot of work. This is just a draft but in order to take it to the next level. I need your input. That's when you share it and really invite their input. What did I miss? What am I not seeing clearly? You know what what could be improved here Danube. In that in that process you're beginning to create buy in so that it becomes not just your vision but a collective vision but it will also ask to act as a filter for people who just say you know. That's not really what I signed up for. And that's fine. You want people that are aligned around that vision. The right vision will attract the right people and repel the wrong people.
"Today I'm GonNA tackle the question. Drain friendships had a few people from different devils loss. I'm sending some messages about What he's friendships main to me. So we're going to be Tilton. Old Thing is friendship This simple side Let me stop by by Dan. We need friendships in personal professional and family loves so we need dumb friendships. Obviously family friendships often comes through. Children all comes through Relatives When they dug pestle friends. It'll be that we've had monitored from school even as far back as kindergarten and of course you personal friends will meet along the line. And of course we have them. Professional whipped with friends with is school. Where the work is a university. Or whether your work is at the professional world We create friendships friendships on all three levels. And obviously all of us have friends from HBO lives And I WanNa tackle the concept of friendship. Another means to me Then condemn a little bit about that subject so let me stop outside. I'm the true meaning of a friendship. That is when you actually consider the other peasants wellbeing to be as valuable as Iran And that beautiful weather. Values comes upsets me. The true meaning of friendship is when neo considering the other person's wellbeing that they said mind that they ran the deadly would they? They ran personality dependent. They are is just as valuable as Iran? If you feel this way about a pessimist. I believe they're a true friend. You can't possibly consider someone a true friend if I'm They another person's wellbeing and it set Nathan values done a line and I think that sends a really good way to look at it with to decide whether someone is is a true friend Over the at a true friendship with the person is whether you genuinely care for they will bain and that you'll venues Alon and that's that's two things that are really really important to make when I'm considering whether somebody Is a true friend because a wig friend is thrown around a lot in as good friend wants it to me. This friendships in his acquaintances. And there's a Lotta tons at We have acquaintances in our lives. That we believe that friends and head until the difference. Well that's that tomase really good way to tell. The difference between a friend and an acquaintance is genuinely care for this person's wellbeing on all levels and do the values along with mine And if they do will win that some the friend to make the an acquaintance unsigned that. Let me give you a few wise at Johnson said nuts down on. How can you tell one of the questions? his head. Can you tell a fight front and I get that a lot of thought Jodi Denson nuts In in this is what I came out with to me on L. I can tell you know a friend And number one is at the front is always conditioned on something. The friendship is only conditional the friendship exists if conditions implies segler. Earning your friend if you're doing something for your friend if you there if you need that it's always conditional the best friendships are unconditional. The next one is your friend acts differently. When you're random people and I find that Somebody's acting differently not being themselves in Iran other people. Then there's been a fight friendship happening. Fake friends will speak polling. When you're not around a true friend to me we'll tell you who knows anything about you wouldn't say to. Faisal already had spoken to you about so. That's another one that I can tell effect. Friend friends will stop talking to you disagreement. Now that's conditional Point Number One when? It's unconditional if we're agreeing will not always going to agree. You have different beliefs on certain topics of coast. Venues need to align but doesn't mean you're always going to agree and if ahead telephonic friend is that they stopped talking when you not agreeing with them because it's okay to disagree It's actually healthy to disagree and help each other grow. As you learn and discuss things you density will agree with on the next one. Is that fight trends disappear when someone more interesting shows up this common? You'll say the specially them in gatherings enough saying this in the school scenario Whether it's social outings of Saint Missing Sporting clubs is that dumb piplo token to you rita. They talk to you the having fun the hanging out with you and then someone will interesting. The high status up. I'm all of a sudden Betcha so that's that's another jotted down is very interesting In a good way to affect friend is number. Six Site Friends Watson to want something from you In Norway spoke about is someone want to take and and the friendships? That are all about give-and-take. They did help you when you needed. You'll there to help them a nine needed and so it's all about giving saving however Into want something because when they need something the token to you and they want something said something to be aware of the number seven. I'm still hanging out with you if you say not died assists that boundaries Foot down That Tad bell sort of distance themselves from you so this is another really good way to see his girlfriend in his not at number. I like friends have tried to help you achieve your goals. So they're not there to help you up. I wish that that you've got a certain yourself with gripe table and you're going to certain people that help you achieve what you want to be entertained. You gotta be there to help them. Achieve by to ban this as part of the give and take steps to see a patent here where it all becomes a one-sided said you know the great way and the way to tell us son perfect friend is if it's all one sided if it's all about them said number nine the bring you down and this happens a lot. I talk to people in. Am they settled the person's my friend but when actually breakdown while people side a good way to do this if you're not sure this is ever conversation somebody in your dental the negatives panel the negative things that say about you in compensation and if there's nothing but there's a good weather. Vicenza notified friend. If there's lots well you know because tight friends. WanNa bring you down good friends WanNa put you on a pedestal. So something to really be aware of Another one is affect fron. Segial needs a month's as a nuisance so when you need something well once I make from someone they see you as a hindrance at they put up by That happens a lot when people say well. I've always been that help somebody but when I asked them for help that it's like I'm putting the map so it's something that you really need to look at and the final one number eleven to me Trends done accept you for who you are you know. Acceptance is a very very big pie of friendship and if people are accepting who you are than a good chance that actually not a friend And something needs to really be aware of because you again. It's all about being there for the good times. Insulin Also for the difficult times and that's why I say life is a journey and down to experience moments. So love is a journey and lock is measured in moments true friendships. Let's sit there will bet Engaging in mutual interests and also Sharing values says if somebody's a true friend that it because I really believe in your well being and they shared values. And if that's the case then you'll say that eleven things are covered on site friendships What happened so I'm a little bit of attempt like the To save somebody is is a true friend. Now why do we really need friends? And that was one of the questions that come through well. Friends are important on that. There's been studies shown that friendship's important because of the feeling a good friend can bring you. It's been proven that ventured success in life. Expectancy that Lois. Chances of have the seasons down friendships is all about being connected. Feeling emotionally engaged. Feeling valued You know having a sense of of Togetherness in earnest ship that somebody actually value in case for your well being and this is something that's been scientifically proven that friendship ignites the part of the Bryan. That makes us feel good. You know when you're having a positive friendship and having a positive moment you'll Brian Rex. Completely different to when things are going wrong with friends. And obviously you know we translate this into moods In a mood to genuinely affected by what's happening in their lives. And that's what's important great friends or manager and it's not the amount of friends you have It's the quality of friendships that you have. It's the depth of the friendship. You have so what's with friendships going date not wide It really amazes me. People talk about how many friends have but rather than the death of the relationship. So you know that to me sums up friendship and more Important but when you're looking at friends remember it's not about the the amount of friends that the debt in the quality of the relationship. Could People WanNa bring that your best and you bring in the best of other people you've been listening to fill the Bella and this is Flash Casper. Pd until next time you go and be the best she can be in. Surround yourself with amazing people that care and help you do the best you can

Cracking the Leadership Code | Alain Hunkins
"All right. Let's get to our interview today. I am speaking to somebody who's been working for over twenty years as an executive coach and as a trainer as a seminar leader with hundreds of top executives around the world fortune fifty companies all over the world very diverse background. He's written his first book. It's a gift to us. It's called cracking the leadership code cracking the leadership code. What I love about this book is that it is extremely practical. So this is an inspirational. This isn't just opinions or some academic model. This is how you break the patterns that you might have. Because he's seen it in all of these clients over the years. Our guest is Alon Hawkins. Welcome to the lead X. leadership show. Thanks so much. It's great to be here with you today. So I mentioned you know in the in the intro. You've got a brand new book cracking the Leadership Code. Congratulations why now. I decide to to put down your wisdom into a book well for me. This journey has been one of twenty three years of working with thousands of leaders around the world. And what I started doing. I was watching and I saw these patterns of behavior and both the good stuff and bad stuff and I started taking notes and the notes became stories and the stories became blog posts. The blog posts became chapters. The chapters became parts and ultimately led to this book which is really in some ways. The distillation of twenty three years of experience of really getting into the INS and outs know everyone wants to be a great leader. But what does that really mean and ultimately I think it boils down to the mindset. We have and the choices that we make and so the book is really this. Comprehensive Guide to helping people accelerate their learning curve to become a better leader. You said a couple of Actually really important things there and the first of which you you you just gave away one secret to writing a book which is don't think about writing a book thinking about writing a blog post and then another at another exact. I had a great mentor once and I and I've been thinking about writing a book. I know lots of people have. I have been thinking about writing a book for twenty years and I had a great mentor. Profoundly obviously wonderful thing he said writers right and I think the discipline of the blog and for me it became it became it was really messy at the beginning really messy and not very good but really giving myself the discipline of one post a week and then sticking to that and I did that for years and that started to develop the discipline of writing and the other thing you know you mentioned about all of the work you've done. All the clients have is seen patterns of behavior. And that's what I try to tell people like everybody wants to be a great leader. We have. We have usually the intent to be a great leader. Sometimes we have the knowledge of a great leader but its sometimes tough to see our own negative patterns or to create new habits and patterns. And that's one of the things I liked about. Your book is not only is it? I mean this is actionable. This isn't your inspirational. Climbed down the mountain leadership. Now this is like do this and keep doing it you know and look out for these pitfalls but before we get into these behaviors you say in the book that old school leadership has stopped working. So what maybe was old school leadership in? Why is it stopped working? Yes so if we think about what is old school leadership you know. I saw this great quote recently and I. I don't know who it's from. But they basically said that. Tradition is peer pressure. That comes from dead people and I just love that. Okay if we think about some of the traditions that we around leadership if we go back a few generations you know we this all started this whole idea of leading in organization started in the industrial revolution and the world was so different than and the people who are in charge of figuring this out. Were were engineers mechanical engineers. Who saw work as this mechanical problem to be solved and that's where the term human resources comes from because humans were seen as parts in a bigger machine. I mean humans. Were not your competitive advantage. The factory was and your big factory machines competitive advantage so people again back this time. Ninety five percent of people were doing manual labor and I get into all this history in the book even it in greater detail but because people were treated that way it was all about controlling and managing people and the belief was that people were not to be trusted. And so there was this cauldron of fear and control. And that's what people put up with for a really long time because part of the value proposition back then was if you're a good worker and kept your your head down and just did your job and just shut up. And you're told you have a job for life and you probably have a pension on the other end as well as we know that world has gone away and so if we look at you know today fifty. Nine percent of the workforce is Gen Y. and Gen Z. And people are craving new type of leadership because what we know that align between work and life. There's no more work life balance. It's all one thing it's your life and so people are craving work in organizations that have a clear sense of purpose and they want leaders. Who are going to connect with them at a real human empathetic level and they want people who are going to communicate with them to be authentic and they want to work on collaborative teams. Add more and more people are working in a team environment and they want transparency to be able to do that. So it's like the playbook has changed and leadership needs to catch up because the rules of the game no longer apply the old rules. Don't apply anymore and Elaine I. This is the week that I've been doing a bunch of interviews with A lot of thought leaders such as yourself and I am hearing this recurring theme. Which really shows that you know. We need to pay attention to take action on this. Yesterday I spoke to two Doug Koenig former. Ceo Campbell. Soup and big proponent of employee engagement and he was making the same point and of course he's got a few years even on us in terms of variance and sure in wisdom and he talked. He's he said you know back when it was just about you know. Industrial Revolution came. Maybe I q and some other things when it became about relationships. Then it's the the issue and he said the same thing though that now the newest generation it's about this you know this this Needing some some mission and some motivation you know from a deeper level. It's like a whole new world even beyond just like. Oh we got how to work on a team and you Sorta gave away one of the I. I'm always forgetting so. I like simple models. And and yeah. It's your book. I'm telling people you gotta read this about the three Cs and you know you hinted at them. You Know Cassian communication collaboration and in a short format. Podcast like this. We can't get to deepen anyone but let's let's touch on them and let's start with with connection and you right. That empathy is really the basis for connection. Tell us more about that sure. Yeah we get into connection. Let's let's step back for a quick moment. What is leadership leadership at? Its core is a relationship. It's a human relationship between the person who leads the person who chooses to follow and so at the core of that is got to be human connection. And that's what empathy is and my favorite definition of empathy is. Empathy is showing people that you understand them and care how they feel and on the surfaces. You hear that we can all step back and go get it makes complete sense but actually in the moment when we're all running too fast with too much to do and we're not only leading but also having to get our own projects done empathy can get short shrift and in fact in the book go through six different challenges that people face to leading with empathy. I'll just give you an example of one. One is impatient right because the fact is to really care how people feel means I need to give them my undivided attention in my presence for a while and I got so much else going on. It's really hard to do that. So I go through six different challenges and then I talk about some of the things. We can do simple actions that you can take to become more empathetic and strengthen your connection with people. An example of that is to listen with purpose is very different to listen to someone. Just okay go ahead tell me get it got it good. I hear what you're saying versus really listening with purpose to seek to deeply understand where they're coming from and their perspective because the fact is there's nothing like being heard and valued and understood that makes people feel connected right at our core. We all WanNa be seen recognized and valued so if we want to lead. We need to understand that. Is THE FAST TRACK CONNECTION?

Falcons stun Saints to end six-game skid
"On any given Sunday anything can happen. I get that. But the Falcons defense with an inspired effort. They sacked your breeze. Six Times. New Orleans didn't score single touchdown and maybe there's something about division match ups here. Mike Atlantic gets up for a game against Orleans. A snap the Saints Six Game Winning Streak Matt Ryan Twenty Thirty Five I for one eight one two and a couple of touchdowns for the saints finished with just three hundred ten yards. It's well below. The average of three seventy five is really just divisional matches because Atlanta certainly looked. Inspired up there Dan. Quinn was fired up on decent. Today I was talking about. Hey I would take the falcons in the thirteen and a half. Because I thought the Falcons would back door cover right. I never thought the Falcons would be able to hold the saints for Three for twelve third out and over three on fourth down. I mean think about that. That's remarkable right. I mean this Falcon Defense can't get any pressure. On the quarterback they had sixteen passes broken up the entire year. They can't even get their hands on the football. And yet they turn this thing around and they just stoned it and I think the hard party people think when you have a by people think that you know it gives you chance your team regroups. I think you lose your focus a little bit as a team and I think that the saints went away on their Bhai because you have to give the players four days off. They kind of read their press clippings they thought everything was okay. They're coming to play a SHITTY team like Atlanta. You know and it's not going to be that hard and we'll just we'll turn Alon whenever we need to and they got themselves caught and like you said in a divisional game these things really matter. I mean I don't think people from the northeast understand the rivalry between LEAN ATLANTA NEW ORLEANS. It goes back to when they were in the old. NFC West remember when when when the NFC west was Atlanta New Orleans San Francisco and the rams how that was the West. I I have no idea but those are the four teams right. This is years ago right this when I first started league Atlanta was in the West. This is Chris Chandler days. What era it was way back? Get Chandler Steve Barkovsky. They played the West. I mean they played San Francisco twice a year. This is a real rivalry but that game is like a college game. There's a lot of because because the cities are so close to one another and it's such a southern thing it's a rivalry game and I think obviously Atlanta played up and I mean Dan Quinn. Take your hat off to him. I mean his defense. Finally Allie showed up and played a decent game. The Sean Payton said last week if you go back to the history of its matchup regardless of records it's always been a one possession game or a score game overtime or field goal game and I'm expecting the same thing this weekend. So he was not surprised as by this result and I wouldn't be concerned about the saints. Either Mike. I'm with you. I just think he'd come off a bye. Hi It's division game you lose. It doesn't give me pause and sincerely about New Orleans. They just got beat. They got beat badly New England. I think this is the best thing that happens to him. Because Sean will be on a tangent. He'll go completely lately beserk. I mean there's so much I feel bad for who they play next week. I mean I don't know who they have. I don't have the top of my head but next week. They gotta play somebody and it's GonNa it's GonNa be a challenging game for them because they're gonNA come in and I think they're obviously you know they're going to be ready to play that game and they've got to play at a higher level. They play the Tampa Bay bucks down to Tampa. And that's another one of those that that always give the saints a lot of trouble going into Tampa Bay. Now I think this week Sean.

"The actual term the DPS colonel Frank Milstead used about trooper Jackson was he bargained leniency for favor he was using his position authority to extort sexual favor from the women of these the traffic stop your other words as our caramel stead does begin there to press comes yesterday in other words he'd pull somebody over of a woman and then say Hey yeah you scratch my back I'll scratch your back but it was more than scratching backs of course Tramaine Jackson arrested for allegedly extorting women for sexual favors during traffic stops all that's just lovely we have identified eight victims at this point who have had inappropriate commentary or inappropriate contact with trooper Jackson who's now former trooper Jackson after being fired so he was placed on leave on June eleventh when this sexual abuse complaint was issued he was being investigated for allegedly making inappropriate comments to a woman he pulled over in may. after that investigation was launched an investigation which by the way still going on so we can't give you too many details because we were provided with many and he's now facing more than sixty sixty counts of sexual abuse attempted sexual abuse attempted sexual assault sexual extortion kidnapping for jury tampering and a whole lot more. wow. you don't expect a the Arizona trooper alon Forsman officer it up with that big of a rap sheet. il stead also said yesterday there may be more victims out there yeah he was with GPS for third teen years so I'd imagine he. maybe did this a lot more often than these sixty charges even reflect it here's what I want to know though and this is this a question for for women this hearing this story put you on heightened alert if you're getting pulled over Hey if you see you see the red and blue lights in your rear view mirror are you going to worry about whether or not that's a cop which is one of the things we've talked about the past like cake is that a real compass you know if you're not sure we're told you know get on the phone with nine one one pull over in a very public area where there's lots of light and and and whatnot if you get pulled over in the evening but now we gotta worry you gotta worry that it's a it is a it's a cop a real cop with a badge and a gun but somebody who's not acting like a cop supposed to act. you know a male officer who's a creep like Tramaine Jackson. you know I I I I don't wouldn't go so far as to say that some women would get a pass on fleeing the police because of this but it sure kinda get makes you go you know maybe maybe you want to drive right right to DPS headquarters if you're getting pulled over or directly to the police station whichever you city you happen to be in. you get pulled over. man is so sad that one guy like this can you know a road trust for so many people so many people who are trying to do the right thing and and serve
Elon Musk Wants to Drop Nuclear Bombs on Mars to Prep it for Humans
"On this episode. We're going to be talking about elon. Musk well not just elon musk and the cool things he does spacex. He sent out a tweet on thursday. The just said nuke mars exclamation mation point now alon has about thirty million followers so the comments in those <hes> tweets underneath have been from the ridiculous to the insane to the level headed approach that elon musk husks seems to be having with the idea of releasing nuclear weapons on mars now a couple hours later about four hours later he said there's going to be a t shirt for nuke mars and lo and behold a little while after that popping up on his twitter account there was a t shirt that says nuke mars with the martian red planet in the background now elon musk wants to nuke mars for a reason right. There is a lot of stored h two wo on mars. There's a lot of stored carbon dioxide on mars and you know it seems like a crazy plan but there is some scientific merit to it and if you heat up those stores of frozen carbon dioxide in the polls humans could potentially move around mars with just a breathing apparatus and you wouldn't have to worry about you know all the other horrible things that are happening with start to kind of tear reform mars into something more hospitable than what is now right now. It's pretty much a desert planet. You know there's a lot of dry areas on mars at the polls though there's lots and lots of water ice now he wanted to also build a giant artificial sun and that gradually releases these gases over time as well and in two thousand fifteen he was on the late show with stephen colbert and stephen colbert said that elon musk sounds like a super villain and kind of giggled it off and said well yeah kinda data as crazy so there's logic behind it though the logic behind nuking that plant is humans can intervene to make it hospitable hospitable for other human beings in the future now. Would there be a nuclear fallout though if they would nuke the polls ars possible right so there is weather on mars. There's wind on mars. There's weathered patterns so if you knew the polls enough in your release all of this carbon dioxide and all the all the water ice gets destroyed destroyed in changed into breathable oxygen in it starts changing the atmosphere of mars. What would it actually do well. I don't really have the answers for that for your today but it sounds like a crazy plan and it sounds like something that people way smarter than me have looked into so there's a hypothetical going on here is if you did that to mars you'd release all of the water all the carbon urban all the hydrogen all the oxygen into the atmosphere mars and it would tear for me to be more like the earth now. Would you rather travel to a planet. That's like mars where it's dry. It's inhospitable. You could die taking off your breathing apparatus. You'd have to wear a suit while if you tear a format it's possible over time you would just have to use a breathing apparatus in not a spacesuit suit. Protect your
"alon" Discussed on Before the Millions
"But what's stopping him for making twenty thousand dollars next quarter using this method or forty or sixty right? But all of this stemmed from a single day may single conversation in our mastermind group, one day where he decided that creating this platform was a goal of his, and, and because it was a goal of his he put a plan in place to reach that goal. So you can argue in say that, that day, the impact that, that single, they had on his life is a hundred K day, if not more, right? Is he how many of these people, they're responded to him, is he currently building relationships with how many of them can be future partners on deals? But none of this would have happened. And none of this will happen right if he never decided that day. Way to have a goal and to create a plan to achieve that goal. So on today's episode we're going to talk about exactly how you can make a hundred K in a single day. Because the plans that we set for our future, the goals that we have in front of us the dreams aspirants that were going after they all have baby steps, and the first of all is getting started right making that decision to get started. But then after that the needs to be a plan in place to on today's episode. We explorer exactly that we explored the steps from going from drain to a goal, to have an execute -able plan. Right. And then we talk about focusing on people versus dollars because, you know, I'm a big advocate of serving the more people that you can serve out there in the world, the easier in the bedroom. The faster it is you're gonna get your goals. Run talk about the profound effects of meditation. So anyways, guys, I'm super excited. Today's guest is Mr. Alon David, and it's crazy. How me and along got connected and I'll share exactly how the tip of the week because that has a lot to do a goal. Setting as well. But Alon and I have a great conversation around goal setting around planning. He's the founder of the ninety x goal planner which if you guys have been listening to any of my recent episodes, more specifically, I think up sold one hundred probably upset eighty seven I talk about this planner and other pines extensively on talk about the importance of planning. So it's crazy that just a few months later me and Alana podcast together and we're drawn up a few business plans for the next one year. Now, besides all the steps that I told you, we're going to talk about on the show, besides focusing on people versus focusing on dollars ruptured on talk about the profound effects of meditation, and how to enhance those facts. I've been getting into meditation lately. I'm not I must say I'm not a big fan yet. I'm not all that good at it. It's very hard to focus sometimes. I fall asleep. I know. It's crazy. Right. But it's something that I want to keep working on. And I wanna keep exploring I'm currently doing a guided meditation just because I hear that guided meditations or a bit easier sometimes. And it's a bit easier to. Focus on the things that the guided meditation has having you focus on rather than trying to clear mind and have nothing in it, right? Think that's super hard to do. But I'm learning and I'm getting there, so we're going to talk a little bit about meditation in this episode. We're going to talk about strategies for becoming more present. I think a lot of us. Don't take time out of our data become more present something that I I'm Cain Lee aware of, I'm going to try to take time out of every single day to become present. So this episode is amazing. If you haven't yet hit your goals for twenty nineteen this episode is going to kind of kick you in the butt because we're about halfway through the year. And that's why decided to drop this episode right before the exact halfway Mark, so that if your plans from January if you're just like man, like I had all these plans in January February, and they kind of fell by the wayside and a new that I wanted to become a real estate investor. I knew that I wanted to get my real estate license on knew that I wanted to, to start reading more, right? I knew that I wanted to go to the gym..

"Seth Jason thanks for being here. I'm in my full don't run me over callers with my greasy sweaty guy who biked in a look. So for those of you who can't see me look for the video, that's, that's almost ever this is. Yeah. This is when the people are like, no we're happy that it's an audio podcast, we're thrilled. We don't need. We don't need to see you in the bright, orange biking shirt. I don't even have a handsome voice. Nice speaking voice. Let's move along. We've got we've got a bunch of news. And we're going to we're going to preview some earnings that are coming after the closing bell. Let's start with Dave, and Buster's, though, because first quarter profits came in lower than expected. And that's actually the first time in five years, that's happened for them. Shares of Dave and Buster's are down more than twenty percent this morning. I know they lowered guidance how much did they lower it? I mean they didn't they didn't miss by something. It wasn't a whole much that full year guidance to and they missed by a penny or something. But people are freaking out. I think once you've set up the expectation that you're going to do better than than people. Expect all the time than the minute, you don't all heck breaks loose. Hey, I on a stock that's done fifty percent or something. And he's a very clever tech company. So if you really want to know how to lose money come to me twenty twenty some percent and a day or a week, nothing but Dave and Buster's to me is one of those businesses seems odd to me that sort of still exists because you've. You've so much restaurant competition. And then you on game and food. I mean how is everybody not at home? Getting door dash food delivered while they play eight packs legends on their on their XBox. Can I answer that because you don't always want sixty your friends coming over to do that? You sometimes you just want to get out of the house. I suppose a comp comp suggests that the a slightly slightly negative flat. People aren't all add excited at least the last quarter, or so they've been getting a little growth over the years by opening new locations. The margins I was like, in the margin been kind of creeping downward for several years now. So this is not my idea of a super awesome, opportunity that free cash flow isn't really there. So unfortunately, you know, sitting there at a price earnings ratio of seventeen sounds like a bargain today. But I think it might need to be more of a bargain before it's a before it's a real deal. Glad you mentioned the cops because that was one of the things that leaped out at me when I was looking at this quarter was that they're, they're comps really. Aren't that great? The new locations. And by definition for those who are new to this podcast or new investing. When we talk about comps, same store sales by definition. Those are locations that have been open for at least a year, the new location. I mean, this, this is one of those things that is maybe not a red flag. But maybe it's a pink flag. Not just for Dave and Buster's. But for any, whether it's a grocery store, just a basic retail operation, or in this case, Dave and busters where it is a little bit of a pink flag where you go wait. So the new locations, there's the initial excitement. Dave and Buster's has opened up in your town or your city or whatever it's like, oh, let's go there. But if they can't sustain those people, and I'm wondering how much of the gross margins creeping down has to do with an increased marketing spent because it does seem like they are doing a lot of promotional stuff. Yeah. While the margin I mean, all the margins are on the way down. So I mean their food prices were going up for a while. And then we had labour and other costs going up. So, but a lot of restaurants are experienced. It's just plain old competition. You have to match prices or in, in some way or another, to bring people in the door. One of I guess, one of the challenges, I would guess, exists for Dave and Buster's is hey, it's a it's super small location without much stuff in it, right. No, it's, it's not it's a place where you play stuff. So it's not like cranking out another one of those poll as with the wrought iron furniture made out of black pipe from from the, the plumbing store. It probably costs, a little more money to build these locations, if they're not paying back so quickly. Your financial start to their other way. So I think on the plus side over the next couple of years, Dave and Buster's to the extent that they're looking open up new locations. We'll probably have more options as commercial real estate continues to face some challenges on the flip side, whenever the conversation turns to well, we think of recession is coming next year or two. You know, when I think about stocks that are recession proof, Dave and Buster's. It's at the other end of the spectrum, this is this is a business. That's done. Well for a bunch of years, but it seems like one of the ultimate discretionary income stocks. Yeah. I guess we'll find out someday. I'll predicting recessions has been a bad business. Yes. In a while. So the fact that the stock is at a two and a half year low, you're not looking at this ain't no. Yeah. By on this dip now. Yeah, I got I got a long history with with value, finger, quotes value stocks like this, that continue becoming more, and more of a value, but less and less of a value, if you know what I mean. Tesla had its annual shareholder meeting on Tuesday. Shares were up briefly this morning in part because Alon musk made comments at the meetings at the meeting. He said he say anything positive. Well, I can hardly imagine, you know what? Let's, let's be clear if he's not any CEO, who's not saying positive things that their shareholder meeting is doing a bad job of being the c. So I don't knock him for that. He said, among other things, it won't be long before we have a four hundred mile range car talked about in twenty twenty Tessa drivers will be able to use self driving features without intervention. I it seems like you just look at the stock chart today, there was some initial enthusiasm stock. Doc was briefly it's now down a couple of percents of problem. If you if you say things that don't turn out to be true often enough, sometimes people stopped believing you it was more than two years ago that Elon Musk promised us that you'd be able to sleep in your tesla while at drove across the country. And everyone believed it then, and then, you know that never happened, and then he kinda dials things back and then a couple of months ago, he doubt things if he said, four sure there will be a million robo tesla robo taxes on the road, you'd be stupid, not to buy any other car, which is just laughable. I mean, consumer reports a couple of weeks later rated autopilot, as dangerous and more difficult to drive with than just driving yourself because it was so erotic. And now we have a couple of months after that autonomy day, which to me, seemed like a smokescreen designed entirely to try to shift, the sentiment of the, the company away from financials and towards, you know, hey, we're going to become an Uber competitor and now. Now, a sort of walking things back and saying self driving without user intervention. But also at the same time supervised robo taxi, which, by the way like Waymo is doing that right now in that exists in other forms? And he just makes these promises that don't match up that don't line up with the reality of what other self driving car leaders are saying and what they're doing. This is a really difficult task and it's not just a matter of getting a couple hundred thousand or a couple of million more miles. There's real diminishing returns for machine learning for doing this, and they have not cracked, this not yet in Tesla's doing it with more. Limited hardware than other companies is nobody else trying to do it their way, which tesla true believers would say, well, that just shows a genius. Mosque is I tend to think that if he's the only one doing it this way, and all these other really smart people are seeing you probably can't do it that way that he's probably the one who has it wrong. So very interesting shareholder meeting. There were some other comments that stood out. To me, Tesla's shareholders are obsessed with the idea that there of being victims. They love this idea that they're victims of a media conspiracy, which is hilarious because they are the, the beneficiaries of so much media incredulity for years. I mean nobody nobody looked at mosque and said, can you really do all those things until recently, now, of course they don't like it. I one of the remarks of something about, you know, it's crazy. The media talks about you is if you're about to go bankrupt, and he says, you know, of course, we're not that's just insane. Except not too long ago, everyone thought they would need to do that. They were running on a cash and must claim they weren't. And then after they had a quarter or they got some free cash flow. He came out and said, yeah, we were only a couple of weeks away from running out of cash. So they wanna have it both ways. It's really nutty. And to me, it's the kind of stock where I wouldn't take a real position in it either way. Because on the one hand you have a CEO who's very comfortable saying things that are not true. And you have a lot of other executives leaving the company probably related to that on the other hand, you have this rabid shareholder fan base. That makes the stock whip Cy it's completely detached from fundamentals. It's all about this crazy personality, not for me. You just reminded me of. The Alex give new documentary that was on HBO and for for those who haven't seen it. It's a it's a fabulous bit of documentary filmmaking about theranos, and Elizabeth homes. And one of the things that. Was noteworthy to me in that was the opening of the documentary. That was a decent bit of information about Thomas, Edison, and sort of, you know, sort of tracing the line of the Silicon Valley, fake to you make it mentality back to Thomas Edison, and saying, you know, Edison did a fair amount of that. Like, there's, you know and, and, and that's, that's a tried and true practice that, you know, didn't didn't start with Elizabeth homes. It didn't start with the Elon Musk. And you know that, that kind of thing goes on all that being said they report earnings second quarter report is scheduled to come at the end of July. It really seems like on the times when tesla has come out with, like a legitimately, encouraging slash great earnings report. A lot of that other stuff just disappear. So and by the way, I'm like you, I don't own shares. I would never know millionaire short stock. I'm on the sidelines just watching all of this play out Noddy and. I just sort of think, to myself. Well, you know, no one ever gotten trouble for walking up to bat and hitting home run. And if they don't, if they come out at the end of July and have some blog quarter, and that, then that helps. Well, of course you have to do it. Yeah, but, you know, the miracle quarter was it was to a large degree, and it wasn't really spoken about at the time. The cash flow quarter was was a artifact of really massaging working capital and calling in some favors. And so you wonder can actually keep doing that. They raised money following the miracle quarter because they needed it. So the suggests that they couldn't keep doing that. It's not easy to build cars. It's not easy to build cars, and you also tell everyone you're going to build self driving electric trucks and all of this other stuff. So maybe they pull it off. I really hope the industry goes, but they have a lot more competition, coming from all the other manufacturers, and those manufacturers are not stupid. If you're looking at a higher for your small business naturally want to find the best person for the job. And the odds are that, that person is on linked in and Lincoln jobs makes it easy to get matched.

Sides when a white supremacist kills you know, shoots at Jews. So you could say both sides or could just be she's really really not bright and really really. Feels like she needs to justify why she carries water for the conservative element in this country. And it's really more about her wondering if there's a if she's aligned with people who may be problematic. Or it could be. She also has a problem with Muslims. I mean, it could be any of those things. And I think we should just be fair. No that lack of intelligence is not mutually exclusive Danny of these answers. But it really is.

And some of the things that they said over the weekend, they have become unleashed at southwest southwest and some of their campaign appearances and things of that nature friend of mine sent me a post YouTube video from a blogger running mister Reagan. And he does a really good job of laying out who's behind this new movement. That has been responsible for Alexandria cost. You a Cortes Alon Omar retreated to leave a Yana Presley from Massachusetts Jamila prior Powell from the state of Washington, and the group is called Justice, Democrats and the Justice democrat are wing social Justice economic Justice climate Justice, though, the whole nine or these are far left wing radicals, and socialists, and this movement about the way we find out that Elsie was did not run for congress. She was cast her brother nominated her for a casting. Call put out by this Justice, Democrats grew up there were looking for young people. Bartender. She had no political ambition and they're heavily scripted. In fact, all of them repeat the same talking points. And when you look a little bit further peel back the layers. It's a woman by the name of Alexandra Ross who runs Justice Democrats and the chief of staff of AO see is one of the big organizers injustice, Democrats and the the person behind it as chunk. A check rather Uber of the young Turks aptly named after their role in the Armenian genocide. So there's ties to radical left wing violence. Among these groups ties to progressive radical socialist communist tendencies, they nominated seventy nine people mation wide. They got thirty three of them elected in primaries and seven elected in congress. So I mean, this is scary stuff. They are not to be underestimated. They're very good at what they do. And the the rights going to have to come up with a response to Justice Democrats. So just wanted you to know that. And if you wanna see the full it's about a fifteen minute presentation, you go to my Facebook page the videos listed there as well. You can go just Google them on your own. And they've they're tell you right upfront other who they are you got to do a little bit digging on who's financing. We're still trying to follow the money as to who's giving the young Turks their their money. And we think it could be George Soros or a few others. But we haven't really been linked his open society movement. He has been linked. But he's always linked in these things anyways start. But I think a lot of these people got their inspiration to and it wouldn't surprise me of many of them that are following the social socialism movement here in this country. Were inspired by the Occupy Wall street crowd, the black lives matter, and what have you all of which, you know, goes back to these liberals like yours Soros who had been funding those kind of organization, so they're almost all, you know, in the same basket, if you will and something else when you go to their website, the Justice Democrats website, and you look at their agenda and sure enough there it is for all the world to see the green new deal. Was there? My their baby wasn't AOC's. It was the Justice Democrats the green new deal Medicare for all. Abolish is all the stuff we hear that parodied. And by the way, it's I'm telling you they've done this. Mister Reagan did a great job of putting together the talking points, the way the Justice Democrats have positioned it. And then you hear all their candidates just echo. It's an echo chamber is what it is. They found young people of color on the fringes far left wing progressive. And. Them through.

And just being like, the think religion is often used in certain cultures to just control people. You know, I'm not saying that religion doesn't do good things for certain, folks.

But I'm supposed to be concerned about your family. Would you even care if they were gay and they were kidnapped if upsetting for you tell me more about that. Yeah. I mean, I think that like I'm trying to honest bring this memory back because it's not I don't haven't really meditated on our thought about it in a while for me was the idea of like. How how much of your culture because I have like an affinity to it. And I have like fund memories. And also like connections that exist today. How do you reconcile that with some of the more like I would say literally or like socially kind of violent things that come from having a country. That's extremely homophobic or having a country that has like extreme like misogynistic laws or laws that don't protect women. You know, like, how do you reconcile that?

That was quick said Peter Hanning and the New York Times tesla chief, Elon Musk last week face the possibility of being banned for life from running a public company.

But just two days after he was sued by the SEC a. But just two days after he was sued by the SEC. MIR Curiel entrepreneur agreed to a settlement that will see him pay a fine of twenty million dollars and stepped down as Tesla's chairman for three years. That's I wasn't totally wrong. Man that's year longer and ten million dollars more than a deal. Musk had arrogantly turned down earlier in the week. Critics accused the SEC of letting him off easy. Said, David Gallo's also in the times, but regulators decided to balance the penalty for violating securities law with investors, fervor for Mosk, who was Tesla's animating force, an hours of the settlement. Musk was firmly back in the driver's seat, sending workers exhortations to keep going super hard core at one eight a. m. the CEOs behavior remains a wildcard and Tesla's board must now babysit Mosk to make sure he doesn't say anything that could get him or the company in trouble. Full disclosure, I am a shareholder in tesla. I sort of unknowing I watch and say, sort of I invested in solar city and then. One day I went to check yet and I couldn't find it. So I couldn't find it online like I couldn't find the stock. So then I called my stockbroker and he said, well, yeah, that got folded into tesla, which I didn't know that had anything to do with Alon musk. But he still there. So I don't know, see what happens. The SEC's deal with Musk's, sensible incorrect said, Matt LeVine, Bloomberg dot com. But man, it would have been something to see mosque and the government's slug it out in court.

If you seen there actually, some pictures of people online shooting burning their phones, their American Electric's, which they tweeted because at onset this your remember that this will happen after the US has demont Turkey released an evangelical Pasa and Turkey has I'm gonna pragmatically, put sang, remained defiant in the face of view sanction. I would say shooting something which contains a lithium battery as a fire hazard. You really shouldn't do. It was suppose if the aim is to make the put the item go and fire than perhaps that I don't I don't know. know the serious thing. I mean, obviously what? What can Mr. one seriously day? I mean Turkey, of course, strong regional power, but suggesting turkeys, boycotts of of of of apple, electric or other US goods is going to save the United States Konomi Scholley as as whistling in the wind. I mean, Turkey is a country of eighteen million people. So trade is important. They've also said that their national airline in the main telecoms companies will stop advertising with US companies. So it's probably not gonna make a massive dent in the US economy, but it's the kind of posturing that the US economy Antle doesn't like that being said, it's more likely to be a for greater problem for Turkey, and there are fears that the market free full that substantially been happening Turkish lira currently trading at six point three to the Dollah just over eight to the pound. This will create a kind of contagion that affects other so-called emerging markets. So you know, we've seen, for example, Indonesia, the central Bank cat to step in to stabilize the currency reportedly. So Turkey and response can look for financial help from. Elsewhere. There's been suggestions that they would go to Russia in particular, perhaps Cottle, which is a big ally. Eight. There were reports earlier this week that Kuwait has denied giving Turkey. A one point, six billion dollar aid package after the finance ministers met, and there was also a previous three point, six billion dollar loan package from China, but that was after the first round of US sanctions and needs.

This problem and any country that gives it to the might be concerned about angering the US and particularly Donald Trump what we could say as volatile time while another country which has gone outside the US for funding is Egypt, which is got forty, five million dollars from China to launch Egypt sat to, yes, Egypt, sap one, which they don't with Ukraine in two thousand seven.

The ward I'm told is going to meet with financial advisers next week, and they are likely to say to Elon Musk that he's recused himself from the board as the four potential take private. I'm also what's likely to happen is the bookable setup, an independent special committee, maybe of the board members group to review a proposal. I don't have any particular detail about what this proposal may look like the structure of it or again, whether or not there's actually committed financing was from here. One of the people that they're at least was a conversation between Alon musk and the Saudi sovereign wealth bond about eight take private. But again, I have no in about whether or not that conversation went anywhere or if there isn't any. Saudi money as part of the irrevocable. Take private, but at least what we do know is that the board is taking this seriously and so couldn't expect is some sort of statement tomorrow from Tesla's saying, this was a manic episode from me Lon moth. Blah, blah, blah. They are moving forward as a very real, take private off and Alex, Alex, your reporting by the way, and thank you for breaking this story here on CNBC reporting is moving. The stock tesla was down. It is now higher and I want to be clear on what you are saying according to your sources. Are they asking Yuan must to recuse himself from the board generally or recuse himself from the board in this process of the sensibly, exploring a take private situation. One is more permanent. One is temporary. Based on situational ladder, the ladder I'm told you can look back in fact you're what happened with Michael bell when Michael bell bell, private. A similar thing happened. So again, I ball. None of this is for sure, but I'm told this is what likely to be recommended next week. I know the piece of information I can give you them alerts when Michael bell to bell, private. I'm told that what the board will likely recommend is for Elon Musk to get his own advisors. So you sorta operates as a separate entity here this again, this is what happened with Michael Dell when he took del private so that there is almost three entities here. There's the four in full and Alon is the chairman of the board. Then there would be Alon at sort of a separate entity pursuing this management bio.

"Need to get behind the wheel of a AP two-car to tweet to give this to give this thing a world. But it's pretty exciting. For me to see see this happen. You know in non huge fanfare update either. Right. Like, I think clearly once there's more features that are fulfilling on an auto pilot, then they'll be more press around it. But it's great to see see this starting to materialize because Alon was just a south by southwest and talking about fulfill driving again and his two to three year sort of eighteen months to year timeframe for self-driving encompassing, all modes of driving by the end of two thousand nineteen is again, very aggressive. And he says he thinks autopilot to will be two to three times safer than the average human driver. But he said to autopilot full self-driving. It's been two years away a lot like he said it in two thousand fifteen he said it again last year at Ted talk. So he is perpetually this sort of two years away. But I mean, he can't. I don't know. I mean, maybe the maybe the goalposts keeps moving, but real soon, they are they are making progress. So I have to think they are getting closer. It's just stay may be still many many years away fully in when you look at what crews and way more doing and Natasha me and others. It's obvious that tesla is not is not along the same path. However, you look at how long it took those folks to get up and running and then you look at someone like Aurora with crimson who was formerly the head of Google self-driving project and sterling Anderson who was at tesla near about a year and a half two years in and they haven't fully commercialized yet. But they have bootstrap their system to do highway and city driving at a pretty good capacity already. And so the question is how fast is the neural network going to improve. And is that really the hard problem? And unfortunately, a lot of the. Folks in the space say that the path planning and prediction of predicting what all the other road users are going to do is actually the harder part. And that's not what the vision system is currently working on. So even if you would have perfect vision, no pun intended. You would still not necessarily have solved self-driving that the predictive part is still extremely difficult. So. Until you are talking about the predictive systems more. I will still believe they are still sort of solving. Some of the first inning problems of how do we know what's happening in sensing? And that certainly is one of the things lied are helps you get over a little bit faster. So Tesla's putting in the hands of average people to which kind of further complicates the whole thing. Yeah. Exactly. Right. The sort of the safety safety drivers in these other companies systems allow them to sort of push a little bit faster and a little bit harder because they've been -ployees who are specifically trained to deal with these systems and understand their limits where you put them in the hand of anyone who can buy a car, you have to have a lot higher safety thresholds to protect people, and it's not bad. I think it's actually good. But it does limit the pace at which you could deploy this. So it's fun to watch to one of our favorite topics. One of the things I'm most excited about if I had a model three right now, it'd be anxiously refreshing to try and make sure I got. This offer update, and you could have a model three right now. Well, not. Yeah. Probably wouldn't have it yet. I would probably be a couple of weeks away. And I guess probably the next episode will probably be talking about the end of the quarter and see what the delivery numbers aren't see where they're at so probe that will probably be the next episode unless something crazy happens.
