"Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for being here with us. How are you. I'm great thank you. How long have you been working at yan living. I've been here almost four years. Wow that's a good long time. So you've been there back. Gary was there and there for part of the huge growth excitement. So that's great. Yeah it's been exciting time to be partying living so tell us exactly what you do for a living so my title is regional director of lower north america farms. And i guess it's really just a fancy way of saying that i'm a farmer but So my role is son. The current acting far manager at our young livy lavender farm and distillery in mony utah Aside from that one of our other corporate owned farms it which is called the sky rider wilderness ranch and tabby only utah that also falls within my stewardship. So i help out in that farm quite a bit as well. That's great so. I don't know if you know this well. I'm sure you know this already. That as a young living farmer someone that works on the forbes. You're like a superhero to all of us the products who loved the products who share the products. And i think that. That's a little atypical. When it comes to. I don't know almost any company that makes a product like i have a podcast interview. Lots of world experts about essential oils. And i never get more excited than i get to talk to the people who are actually involved with making the product. Have you noticed that sort of culture shifts joined young living for maybe where you came from in the past. I think so little bit Well first of all certainly. I appreciate that On behalf of all of our managers we. I would say that we appreciate all the members and i think that's the best part of our jobs getting to interact with people that appreciate our products and yeah. I've heard that from time to time. It always takes me by surprise. You know somebody refers to me as a superhero or something. But i think. I've just just blessed to be able to do what i love. And people enjoy our products so so let's get into some of the nitty gritty of what exactly you do. I think one thing that a lot of us are always so curious about are just what. What exactly are you guys. Doing on the farms to implement sustainable regenerative forming practices while that. There's a lot of things list all the things that we do will be pretty long list so just to mention a few first of all no matter what approach retake when it comes to agriculture. And we think of sustainability i and a long term impact that it will have on the land and on the farm and so i think the first one that comes to mind for me is probably water conservation especially here in utah because where we live in the middle of a desert the desert desert climate here and so over the last few years. We've actually worked really hard to ensure that not not a single drop of water is wasted here and so just to name a couple of things. We've completely redesigned our distillery which put saves us two hundred and seventy million gallons of water each year. Yeah some we're really proud of and an aside from that. We continue to just optimize. Our irrigation systems. So we have to irrigate every field and so it's important to have just a very good efficient sustainable water system so we know on certain fields where it makes sense to just put drip irrigation in. We've done that and so so water is a big one for us Waste management is another one that we're looking at you. Know after we distill the oil out of the planet. We have to do something with those plants with that plant material and so after distillation we compost that plant material and we also have a lot of animals on the farm. If you've ever been here you know we have something like one hundred and thirty or one hundred and forty horses them. We have elk and buffalo a camel. Lots of other animals that that produce a lot waste in so we mix that together with our plant material. We call them post it and we return at right back to the far in the form of organic fertilizer. Tell me more about this camel. Obviously where's this camera. So if you come to our farm of we kinda have an area on the west side of of our park area. That's got some exotic cattle burr buffalo elkhart. Then we also have a camel and some years ago you know. i really don't know the story behind it. Gary picked up a camel. Somewhere and carseat. All right been here ever since. Yeah so it's just one of those things that you know you know when people come to the farm gary wants to have fun and nc fun things enjoy. Enjoy being here circuits. That's why it's here. So let's like agriculture. In general has always been at the heart of this company and gary's love for farming and agriculture really extended out through every fiber of young living down to the products the farmers of the users to everyone. Why is agriculture so important to young living d. Think i think. I i believe that first of all i guess started with our founder gary young he was a farmer He knew that if he wanted to grow the best possible crops for essential oil production. He had on his own farms and not only that but support other farmers us. Also gary also do it would be important for our customers are brand parker's been able to come and just see where the oils where they're made how they're made. They can even take part in the process if they want. I think he knew how impactful that would be for people and it really does sort of change the way you think about these little bottles that you're holding when you can experience where they've come from it just sort of reconnect you back to the plants and to nature in a way that you don't necessarily get when you use other things and i think it's a really beautiful experience I think one of the biggest criticisms or concerns that we might hear in the essential oil world is it takes so much plant to produce know one drop of oil or one bottle of oil and especially a company like young living where the demand just seems to keep growing more and more people want our products there so amazing so the biggest question that a lot of people have how on earth can young living maintain their super high quality standard when their demand is so high. Yeah i know that's another..

General Tom Thumb: Not a Colonel of Truth
"Life started out. Pretty normal for charles sherwood stratton when he was born to a housekeeper and a carpenter in eighteen thirty eight in connecticut pretty normal ended when he was six months old as did his growth he basically just stopped growing. He was otherwise healthy. In doctors were stumped normal ended completely in the winter of eighteen. Forty two when one finneas taylor. Barnum showed up at his family's home chasing rumors of an extraordinarily small child. Four year old. Charlie list now in show business earning his family three dollars a week. Barnum immediately began promoting his tiny talent. When charlie and his mother arrived the following week to new york. They were surprised to see banners on the american museum bragging about the arrival of general tom thumb in typical barnum style. He had taken absolutely wild liberties with the truth. He took the name. Tom thumb from an english fairy tale character. Basically thumbed lena posters and handbills claiming that general tom thumb had been brought to america from europe at great expense and that he was eleven years old not sure how that jibes military service and eleven year old and it was nice that he aged him up to eleven. We wouldn't want people to think that he was exploiting a small child. I don't kid yourself. This is pre child. Labor laws are really any labor laws. There was no such thing as a cultural concept of exploitation. Charlie and his mother moved into an apartment in the museum building and barnum said about teaching charlie to sing dance and do impressions and act. Like a preteen. Instead of a preschooler i guess. Barnum recalled him as an apt student with a great deal of native talent and a keen sense of ludicrous. By all accounts young charlie stratton loved performing and he and barnum were genuinely fond of one. Another

David S. Reynolds on Abraham Lincoln
"Our guest. Today is dr david. S reynolds historian who has written extensively on the civil war era. He's won numerous awards including the bancroft prize. And the ambassador book award just to name a few. And he is the author of the book. Abe abraham lincoln in his times professor reynolds. Thank you for being on our show. Great to be here richard. Thank you great. So much is made about president. Lincoln's lack of experience and his many supposed- professional failures prior to winning the presidency. But you seem to push back against this narrative. So what's the real story here. yeah One of the best books on him david. Donald to lincoln one of the better known books actually says very frankly that no president has ever entered the highest office being the least prepare less prepared than than lincoln that is the least prepared ball and on the surface kind of looks that way because he had less than one year of education just primary school education and Thou that was it and He didn't go through any formal formal of self education. Either but what i found is that he had something far more important. A insatiably curious. If he were on the law circuit around illinois he would go to a farmer and say. How does that machine work. And what brand of cow is that and and the pig over there. What can you describe that to me. Very very curious about the world around him And also he loved to read poetry in particular newspaper small so poetry and poetry kind of organized his thoughts and he memorized shakespeare by the page. She didn't do it to impress people but Suddenly suddenly would come out with a shakespearean soliloquy though is on his hard disk his brain and Or burns poem or something like that. So he was a really exposed to different levels of culture so much so that his contemporary emerson said There's one hero who stands out from the rest as somebody who bridges the entire range of experience from the very highest shakespeare of the opera. And all of that to the lowest. He like body humor and grotesque Frontier humor and emerson said he went down as far so the the very dogs believed in him so In a way who's very very open to experience and is that lincoln that i'm really interested in the songs he loved the poems he loved and what really made him a what what was going on inside of him right and you talk about. Lincoln's ran as an era of sensationalism. Violence susannah humor surreal the surreal in the bizarre which i think for anyone that follows politics now is a bit comforting to know that it's it's been like this for a while. So can you expand on just what you meant by that. Well i think there's been interesting sensationalism for a long time in many cultures but the difference was that because of changes in print printing techniques and also distribution techniques. Suddenly this was available to the masses and so the newspapers they used to be used to six hundred suddenly were once the penny papers and they were filled with sensational stories about murders and suicides and oh adultery and all all all this stuff and so yeah. I mean Linking grew up in this kind of culture. Also in popular humor lincoln said it was characterized by grotesque nece and it was a very violent kind of humor of gouging and and scrapping and scraping and a often feature these kind of frontier types. That were just wild men and people get a lotta thrills out of these kind of very very wild escapades in the crockett manuscripts the davy crockett manuscripts almond accents. Helper and p.t barnum. Who was a sensation. He was founded show business and wasn't in the circus business back then but he was in the museum business and he put on sensational displays like a fiji mermaid. Who is this beautiful blonde. Half naked woman had presented that way in in the posters. But actually it was just a a monkey's torso tied to a salmon's tail assistant in some water. And anyway the biggest. The smallest the fattest put things on display so in a way Lincoln had to serve accommodate culture as well because he was sold as as abe. That's book is called the kind of rough frontiers men with his sleeves rolled up and he's wielding an axe in these splitting the rails and by the time that It was advertised that way. It had been many years since. He's splitting rails because he was a respectable lawyer by the time war. Good suits and all of that and it was making a good income but he allowed himself to be sold as a even though he hated the name but he said without names like old. Abe uncle abe Honesty i wouldn't have been elected. I would not have been elected. So he was sort of put on display almost in a barnum barnum like way in eighteen sixty.

Getting Rich Might Be Easier Than You Think
"Things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily alien nominees a micro audio book about life and befuddle men just for you our story. This week is from BB. Nicholson who oh you'll find on medium DOT COM and here is getting rich. Might be easier than you think. I'm going to be rich. Don't laugh this is a slam dunk. I don't even need to publish bestseller or start a company. What's more I'll let you in on a secret? You too can avail yourself of this potential windfall. The beginning of my ride to riches occurred in the summer of two thousand thirteen gene on what started out as an ordinary day it ended as an ordinary day to but my assessment of the day as ordinary even even boring goes to show that the least significant activities. The stuff we are tempted to write off as forgettable are the things that catapulted catapult us to unexpected rewards. I remember the day. Well no or maybe not so well but I can reconstruct it. I was in the kitchen feeling those first pangs of hunger that surface when you've already had lunch and it's not time for dinner and you can't focus or do anything much until you've had something to eat. I could have reached for an apple or a banana but my craving was for something salty salty artificially flavored and devoid of all nutritional value. I reached for the giant variety snack. Pack I bought IT COSTCO CUSCO A few weeks earlier. Only to realize with dismay that all the potato chips and Fritos were gone. The only thing left was cheese. He's it's if you haven't figured out where this is going by now. You haven't read today's Wall Street Journal. The story is on page. Eighteen eighteen. Three women are suing. Kellogg's the manufacturer of cheese it because they feel misled and they want justice one the plaintiffs Linda castle purchase cheese. It's approximately three times in two thousand thirteen from Grocer in Torrance California her lawsuit and her pursuit of justice stem from the assumption that her cheeses contain more whole grain than the label would lead one to believe so what you might be thinking who cares if Linda Castle but she sits and believe she was consuming a health food. There's a sucker born every minute. According to P. T. Barnum. But here's the caveat. The cheeses were labeled whole grain and and although the box explains that they contained five to eight grams of whole grain for each twenty nine grams. Serving the plaintiff felt deceived received. Mrs Castle and the other plaintiffs are seeking damages other monetary relief and declaration corey relief.

How is Microsoft's Hardware Different in 2019?
"You talk a little bit about This year's round of hardware from Microsoft and how it felt different and I'm not even getting into the stuff about the neo. Oh and the duo with the future looking stuff. I'm talking about just the stuff that they actually released. Yes so So they'd be free things they did. Let free the surface pro seven and the and the new kind of different of ways said that free they kind of they have a C. Spec- oldest upgrades you expect. But then they were in this one where they did an MD laptop on the fifteen inch vision and similar to that on the pro excite in the Eagle pro seven which is Intel. Oh looks the same as a pro full. I mean even a pro free offer like we're talking five years at the same hardware essentially so that's is pretty much. Everyone should probably noble. That's all about but he's us be seen but they also did another one the black surface pro x which has a it. Quantum chip inside is basically an excuse on presser. They've engineered with Coleman is basically an eight six prices inside. See that that is the hallway lineup US holiday lineup and some overseas Amir belts as well. But we're not talking about that is we. Don't have them yet. I'll admit I forgot about the ear. Bud Ah so thank you for reminding me well I mean how could you there giant reflectors on the side of your head. How could you possibly miss them? They're neck oh wafers really annoyed. We'll have yeah. Actually we're giving them into an litigation discussion. We're definitely going to give the these headphones a good review because they annoyed will am like that's that's absolutely happening. Well let's get the laptops out of the way Dan you review them The thirteen point five inch one you. You had a meme headline congratulations nations. You said having I snuck it in yeah. Tell me about this laptop it seems like it's okay. It's it's a surface laptop. They put a USB port on it instead of display port the end basically basically yes I mean so like they swapped that display port out that which was on the first two versions of the surface laptop and I. I'm pretty sure nobody used Finally for USB port. We're which you can do video out and you can charge to the poor but it's not a thunderbolt port which is an annoying thing and I think that's GonNa come up. That annoyance is gonNA come up again. I mean you talk about the other devices and then inside side of it has the tenth Gen Intel Ice Lake Processors Quad. courtships Really Great Performance They have actually really surprisingly good integrated graphics with them. This is not a gaming laptop. It doesn't have a discrete graphics card But if you wanted to like you know process a four K.. Video on this you you can do it. I did it in a test and it wasn't the worst thing in the world I wouldn't recommend it for doing that. But like if you need to get done They still have the great three by two screen. I love the screen on these things. It's the best screen to work on if you're doing productivity stuff on a laptop awesome allow Keyboard Awesome track pad really great basics. The one that I reviewed is is the gold model which they called sandstone. Because of course but it's gold and it doesn't have the Elkin Tara fabric on it which is kind of like the other big change. They kind of for a couple of the colors they dropped the fabrics. So this is like when you use this thing. It feels like you're using a Mac book air because it's just basically an aluminum neck which is fine It's just not the unique as as maybe the the blue were the silver which still have the the fabric on them. Yeah I mean the fabric thing is that. That's the biggest change right. Did you prefer the fabric Eric. I prefer the fabric. The fabric actually feels nice under the hands. Like it's not cold the touch. It's not sharp. It doesn't you know it doesn't feel like a every other laptop up that you could buy this kind of unique But there was some concerns with durability If you look at I've got a surface laptop one that I I got as my work computer two years ago and there are definitely some handprints in the fabric where it is so he tried cleaning it. No IT'S A. It's a Patina so like you know if you're worried about that the metal ones are obviously not going to have that issue And then the other thing that is less applicable when you first opened the box or use the laptop or whatever is that Microsoft apparently made these a lot easier to take apart and repair so You can actually Open them up pretty easily and access and swap that you can swap parts like the keyboard easier. I fix it. Did a whole tear down on it. Then they like I think brought the score up from like really low up to something in the mid range. Yeah because I guess the the display is still hard to to change. You're probably not going to do that. I think still need to have like an authorized service center. Sure do that for you. But it's now more possible whereas the other one you basically just had to rip it apart so his of his a funny thing about the Al Qatar so this she is Qatar. The silver one like will ever collie one is slightly darker before like that. That is right. Yes I remember noticing they did that. Maybe if you go into Mike's hostile and you pick up on these things and beat the hell like terrible graceless graces Silva is terrible so they got rid of the red color to which was like the message color all right what the one thing to talk about here at the thirteen point five because it actually applies to every single service were to talk about today is They kept the surface connect. Charger thingamajig the little wing tip. Whatever the hell you want to call it that you magnetically attached into charge charge? You could still intact to blah blah blah. I feel like they did this. Bait and switch or something where they added fast charging but so far as yeah I know it only really really works out the surface charge. You won't fast charge that well off a USB right. I got some pretty fast charging speed. USB Port Yeah as long as you have a high enough wattage charger okay. I think what I tested on was like a ninety watt or eighty seven watt USB charger which is like what you get with a macbook pro fifteen inch Just because I wanted to see if it did compared hair to the surface connector which is sixty five charter. So as long as you're using like sixty five or above you should get some fast speeds. You won't get Is Charging Wall. You're using the laptop and that is if you use either the USB port or the service connect port it's GonNa charge like a normal slow speeds. If you close the LID and let it go to sleep you can get ah like eighty percent in an hour or I'm in my test. I got up to forty percent in thirty minutes. I would much rather have another. USB Port than the service connected at this point right. Yeah I mean any time can speak to this more than I can. But I like the surface Hitler but it makes no sense when as you as you know I think it's like a legacy thing right. Like Microsoft has a bunch of commercial customers customer who all bought that terrible surface dock and they still want to use it and so the service connected. Let them do that like it. Also has that MAG safe knockoff. So that it doesn't it doesn't pull your laptop off the table but I agree I would much rather have I. I'd much rather have a another. USB SEAPORT and thunderbolt three because if you had three I could plug in an external gps and actually do real video editing. Or maybe gaming. If I was so inclined I could use really fast. External Storage which is if you are a creator using these for photo or video editing? That's always helpful. It's like four times the band with USB so I think it's a very silly misstep at these price points for you're not to have included thundery. Yeah and I think that connect is the reason why it does not fundable for the connect the surface connect because I think it's to do wherever the Tech specs on PCA lanes and stuff that used by Seattle. I think they can. Let's say you're like a new version of the connect it does. It doesn't support past hundred fifteen stuff photonic right so salute restrictive so what the fifteen inch this laptop at first until I was like really sad and like pondered. It came to a realization about it. It was the most confusing thing ever like. It seems obvious at the start but then you reviewed needed and it turns out. It's not like with the macro. If you get a thirteen inch you know like it's a little bit limited. It's just the thirteen inch but if you just want like power A little bit like you. You know slightly better thermal limits you can get the fifteen inch and that becomes like the power compute power laptop And I was expecting especially since there's an MD.. Version the fifteen inch of the surface. Chris pro to be like the power surface pro laptop. And it's it's it's not Not Not at all no it is. It is like you took the thirteen point. Five inch just stretched it to a fifteen inch chassis. Like I mean that's that's really what it is and and like if you want a Mac book air like computer which here's what. The surface laptop is in a fifteen inch size than the surface laptop. Three fifteen inch is that product. But if you're thinking oh I'm going to upgrade to the fifteen inch and get more power an an offer more capabilities and do XYZ. That I can't do on the smaller one. That's not the case at all And in fact if you're a consumer we're going to talk about this more with the aimed Intel differences If you're just like whoa buying the one that's accessible to you in the fifteen inch. It's actually not as good as the thirteen inch until in terms of performance. So like you're taking a step backwards you're also not getting a bigger battery which is kind of bonkers to me like the battery inside the thirteen inch model and the fifteen inch model is the exact same capacity so That's kind of just not so to me. Well and like the the size of it is if you're not doing anything fancy with like power Than it seems seems to be you should at least try and do something cool like the vessels but like this bog standard fifteen inch laptop battles are kinda big. It's not super powerful. The you mentioned the the macbook pro differences earlier and the the reason the macro fifteen inch is much more powerful is because you can get discreet. GP's and more importantly get like forty forty-five Watt CPU's the keys in the the the fifteen inch. Laptop three are still fifteen ships. So it's the same class ships. You're not getting any more power there and you can't get discreet. GPA's as you can get different If the amd one you get a different integrated gp but it's not as good as Intel's latest GP use like you're taking a step backwards there right so it is is kind of baffling. It is kind of like a very niche thing. I think for someone who wants a thin light computer that's also fifteen screen But yeah that that's really what it boils down to. I think the keyboard is fantastic on it. I actually liked. I fell in love with the keyboard I when I reviewed the fifteen inch model. Because that's the one I did. I and and it carries over the thirteen inch model title but the keyboard is tremendous the track is probably the best track pad. You're going to get in the window world barnum
3 Strategies to Start Finishing What Matters Most with Charlie Gilkey
"Charlie say what's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself. Most people don't know what's up fire nation. What most people don't know is that over the last three months? I've lost twenty five pounds man. I get after it a AH packed on some extra weight over the years and then a book will make you added some additional weight so I was like you know I gotTa take seriously so I got after it. What would you say is the biggest against reason that you lost the weight Diet Bar none? I went on a pretty strange Paleo Diet which is really good for my body but the thing is rose like you can't can't out train a bad diet you just can't and so I was like no matter what I do I gotta fix that and I'd layered on some hired a personal trainer but barnum and the Diet can't train a bad diets and other way to put this is you can't out exercise your mouth fire nation truth straight truth man. Dan and that's brilliant virtual trainers so key fire nation. I mean I've had jeff work and me out four days a week for years now and yes. He's on video want zoom but man. He's still yells at me. He's still gets my form inaction. He still make sure that I am pushing it to the limits. That accountability is absolutely key and guess is what Fire Nation Accountability also helps you finish what matters most and that's we're talking about today the three strategies to start finishing what matters most so oh I m brought Charlie on the Mike because he's obviously got his book start finishing on the shelves right now so let's just dive into why don't people work on ideas and projects that most light them up Charlie. You know that's really interesting and it's counterintuitive because the more that something matters to you the more you'll thrash witted like no one has an existential crisis overtaken the garbage out or doing the dishes like we don't get really worked up in knots about that but when it really matters that book you want to write that business you WanNa start that relationship that you want to take further. All those things are things that actually make it harder to do the thing that most fire you up am mm-hmm. Unfortunately I think our wiring is the opposite. We think that if it lights us up we will want to do it more in in some ways that's true but when it comes time to actually take those steps steps we don't do it and so I think starting with that is is one place it's helpful a lot of people and the other thing about it is as soon soon as you start doing that work the thrashing that I just mentioned which is that middle flailing that sorta you're working around the project but not really pushing it forward word like that rocking chair that does a lot of motion Denver gets anywhere. That's thrashing when you do that. It's really one of those things where many people again again take that as a sign as they're working on the wrong thing. They see those challenges at sea that emotional sort of process and flailing are going through something wrong but that's just part of the process process and so you know anything that's really worked doing is one. We're doing bad in the beginning but it's also worth going through those hard parts. I love that visual will fire nation think about. Are you a rocking chair a lot of motion but not getting anywhere. You're just there rocking back and forth like yes. There's things that are happening. Motions happen your quote unquote busy but are you producing the right content. Are you actually getting somewhere. Are you actually working on the ideas and the projects that fire you up now. Prioritizing projects is something that's a lot of people struggle with and then you know once they prioritize them Castilla matter take the next step actually getting them done so. How can we first off get better prioritizing and secondly actually get those things done the first thing to think about it? The more priorities you have the less weighty each priority is and so if you have too many priorities you actually have none and so the first thing did you do when you prioritize and I think this sounds obvious John but so many people start with a list of seventeen different priorities and then try to figure it out what really getting clear that you know usually there are three to five things really matter the most and focus on those in go through that process where you have to understand that your reach will always exceed your grasp. You'll never be able to do all the things you think you might want to do and that's just part of being human but when you accept that you can get down to. Do you know that three to five I call it the five projects John and it's really a much more nerdy way of thinking so the longer version is no more than five active projects projects at any given time perspective so let me unpack that just a little bit no more than five active products active projects are the ones that you're actually pushing for your work. They're on your virtual or physical desktop. You're touching them on a daily basis pertemps perspective It gets easier when you think you know I've got five no more than five five weeks size projects that can push for this week and people are like There's no way that I can do that but we really look down to what people actually get done unless you John Lee Dumas. You're not doing more than three to five anyways like when you really look at the end of the week of things that matter most you might push five significant projects forward at at that time slice and if we zoom up to the monthly perspective of the same sort of thing we just look at how those products are contained how those weekly sized products containing them onsite products and so on and once you get better at that and choosing from the beginning like at the end of the week. These are the five thing the five projects that I want to have made significant ignificant progress on it's easier because it lets you filter out everything that doesn't matter and so you put the work at the beginning rather than putting the work. Every we damn day where you're trying to figure out what am I going to do today or you know at the end of the what should have done like you just make that those tougher costs the beginning and actually once you give yourself self that space to do it makes pushing those projects to done a lot better known applause here because what I like people to think about as momentum mental here if you finish three significant strategic worthy product our projects a week and you do that every week you Iraq up so many more wins than what most people will achieve most months anyways so people tend to look at like wildfire projects this week. That doesn't get me very far. It's not the week it's stacking those bricks week after week in seeing those results and that's how you're going to one beat yourself but you'll also start laughing other people who are still flailing and trying to figure out which of the seventeenth things that they think our priorities are actually going to fire nation. Let's talk about this second. If you're prioritizing everything or for seventeen things or twenty four things you're prioritizing nothing. Three to five is the Max and Charlie as you said no more than five have active projects at any given time or on the exact same page when I created the mastery journal for Focus sessions that's all I give you any given day if if you follow the process of the mastery journal about being productive disciplined and focused four focus actions and if you are taking those four focused sessions in your diving in two for specific tasks that you want to get done and sometimes you're gonNA use two or three of those focuses for just one task because it's the compound compound effect of actually completing projects you know that person that has seventy four tabs open on their desktop. Guess what they're completing anything on those tabs but if you just have one two three four five tabs open in your goal is to just get that done today you're going to win. The compound affects affects GonNa work. One percent better the slight edge. It's all real fire nation. So what should we do when others don't believe in our projects or ideas just like we have these ideas. We're going to keep it to three to five. We're listening to John and Charlie but everybody else is just like now. That's just that's not gonNA work brow that. She's not GonNa Happen Arpan. What do we do them well? I think you WANNA look at those people who don't believe in an into two different camps right so what are the naysayers and the naysayers are those people who are mostly what you you just said. Their gender like NAS NOT GONNA work. You don't have what it takes. You're not ready so and so forth now the thing about a true naysayer is much like you know what Taylor swift upset about haters haters gonNA hate. They're just going to do that. They're invested in that in different ways. You're not ever going to convince them or switch them. That like what you're doing is important Horton so stop destroyed limit contact. Don't talk about the project do your thing put some points on the board and if they really needed to see some points on the board to believe in you then they will but if they are going to be haters they're going to look at your point to not carry anyways your fundamentally focusing on the wrong thing so doesn't nice airs dealers are different Bro because has developers. Are those a well meaning people that once you talk to them they want to have that sort of quote unquote helpful suggestion or they want to do something thing. That makes you feel worse like every time you talk to derail her with your project. You feel worse and the hard thing is sometimes the people you love the most and the people you're close to be derailed so dealers. It's not the complete avoidance that I just mentioned naysayers. It's actually figuring out strategically how aware you're going to engage with them so that you actually can at least not have this negative for such a pushing against everyday because your project if it really matters to you it's GonNa be hard enough on on song and then you have just the general pressures of life like you don't need to add this additional sort of weight of naysayers in derails on top of it but they're different and I think too many people try to long to convince naysayers to get on their side and fundamentally don't and then and they spend too much time caught up in derailing but I really want people to focus on our your. Ac these are those people John who once you start talking about they believe in you they have have your back is there's like when you talk about like of course you should do that. I've been waiting on you to do that right. You want to focus on those naysayers and edgy start building. I don't know how much time we have air bet. There's four types of people that I like people to put in their orbit round projects in their work yeah. Let's do it good so they're guides. which are people people who have walked the road a little bit longer than you are there? You're Yoda as it were. They're not gonNA work on the project with you but they're going to be over there saying cryptic things like use the force or you know be yourself to never make sense in the moment but you understand it later. So those are your guides. The second are your peers and these are the people that are sort of at your shoulder shoulder shelter with you. Pushing you you forward these might be your mastermind buddies or coaches those friends and people in your orbit that really liked you up but they're still not in the project. Third is the supporters which of the people in the project working with you pushing it now what I didn't mention earlier as a project doesn't necessarily have to be like work focused in my definition of project is anything anything that takes time energy and attention to complete which means all those life projects that you're not getting to one of the reasons you're not getting to them is because they're still ideas. Yes we don't do ideas we do projects and because you probably attached more weight on work projects than life projects right and so I thought that thin- because when you think about who's in your support it could be your partner. It could be the neighbor kids who watch your kids in animals so you can focus during those focus blocks we just talked about and get some mm stuff done okay and then the fourth per the fourth kind of person in here and this is super critical John. Are you beneficiaries who will be better off when you finish your project. Why how will their world be better? What will they be able to do because you can play that project and what's super important about your beneficiaries is one whenever ever you get stuck? You have a real person you can reach out to and say hey. I'm need some guidance here. I'm wondering about some things off of you is what I'm doing working and you get that real oh feedback as opposed to some random advertiser out there. Some you know forty five year old soccer mom in Indiana who you can't reach out to that. That's not very useful but the second thing is it makes it really real that there's that particular person that you know that if you don't do your work their life is worse off right. When you WanNa quit you think man what about John What about Sally? What about Henry like if I don't do this work? They're not better off in sometimes sometimes John. That's just the additional fuel that you need to to get out of whatever head trash. You've got going on to get out of whatever you know stuff. That's got you stuck stuck you so you know what like there there. I'm here to take care of them. I'm here to create this thing for them and I'm not gonna go even if I'm able to like give about myself. I'm not giving up on them and I'm GonNa see this through fire nation a lot to to and pack here but I'm just going to burn through its haters GonNa. Hey Hey hey hey hate focus on the yea-sayers I love that phrase focus on the mayors and what were those four guides peers supporters orders beneficiaries and
