Fresh update on "brandon " discussed on Stephanie Miller
"The right thing to think that he did. That it was dark Brandon. He knew all along. He planned this all along. He is dark Brandon. Maybe it's by dopamine. Maybe he is Batman and dark Brandon. I love how much dark Brandon triggers the right. Oh my God. It's so delicious. Oh, you mean like Bannon? Okay. We agree. We need to see the general George Washington two in the field taking it to him. We need we need to get to Mar-a-Lago, the exact place that they desecrated because it was a desecration. They did it on purpose. They understand Marlon resonates and not just maga, but to the American people, one of the great buildings in this country and we've had so many iconic moments there with president Xi and Abe who just passed away. You know, the moment of standing up to the North Koreans on their missile shoot. Somebody important things happen there that go and desecrate it the way they did. Oh, you mean that's great the place where he also spilled classified secrets to Abe dinner and then a whole bunch of other Mar-a-Lago. They have no right to talk about desecrating something that means a lot to Americans. Right. Talking about Mar-a-Lago was desecrated. You mean the place that the criminal actually lives that he was giving. He doesn't think that capital was desecrated on January 6th. That omelet bar? No. This was a platform. This was a planting expedition. Oh, I see. So they're just throwing that out there. And preemptively, whatever they found, which is hugely incriminating, was planted. Their listeners lap this up though. They totally believe it. So it's kind of dangerous. Clearly they're, as you know, Alex on a fishing expedition or in a planning expedition. I wouldn't put it past until the planet stuff. This is a criminal. The FBI and the DoJ are essentially lawless criminal organizations. Let's start over there because you're laying out a lot of key things. Second by second, exactly. How do we know a hundred agents in there with their long history of planning things didn't plant something classified? You're absolutely right. Yeah. Yeah. We're just asking the questions. Was it? Planted? Okay, Travis, you said you enjoyed that his attorney who's maybe the only attorney left he can get looks like she's 12. She looks like she may have graduated from law school. She's just like a hot young thing. So I'm going to handle business for a parking garage before. She's his personal lawyer now. Derek Jesus. She was the one I think that throughout that she said there's no security that something wasn't planted. I'm not saying that's what they did. I'm sorry. She's not saying she's just saying. Some people say. Of course. Right. I'm not saying they did, but she said she doesn't even think the FBI would go through the tougher trouble of planning evidence. They would just make stuff up. Yeah, you can't just make stuff up and get a warrant for a former president's House, but nice try. Chevrolet. Nice try legally Bond. Oh, no, that was no, 'cause she was smart. And smart. I'm sorry. I apologize to others. You just call her legally brunette. Right. She's not even blond. Exactly. She said the warrant the FBI, the FBI showed her was partially sealed. The problem is you can't trust what any of these people say, right? Yeah. And could it be partially sealed because it pertains to classified documents that they can't describe and she doesn't have the security clearance to see what those documents are. Right. Or are they all just dopes? Like the original dope from Mar-a-Lago
Naomi Wolf Has Her Own Opinions About the Raid of Trump's Home
"It's now my privilege and joy to have as my guest for the rest of the show. Naomi Wolfe, Naomi, welcome back. Thank you so much, Eric. Thanks for having me. Well, I want to talk to you about a hundred things. First of all, your book is out. We spoke about it, but there's a lot more to say. It's titled the bodies of others. The new authoritarians, COVID-19 and the war against the human, because today is today, I have to say that when I read the new authoritarians, the idea that the FBI, you don't have to like Trump, folks. This is not about that. This is about the rule of law. This is about are we free people, governing ourselves, or have we entered a new era. And I have to tell you, and Naomi, you probably know this, but Brandon strock had his door broken down by the FBI. They are terrorizing people. Simone gold. You must know Simone gold. She's in jail because she's a Doctor Who had the temerity to talk about the vaccines as a bad thing. And what we're seeing right now, it's nothing less than astonishing. It's frankly hard to believe that it's happening in our lifetimes that we're seeing this kind of thing. But you don't only acknowledge it. You've written a book about it. Yeah, thank you. I mean, this is horribly horribly predictable based on the trends that I analyzed in the bodies of others, but it's still such a shock. And I just want to kind of publicly and formally apologize. On behalf, I'm not aligned with the Democrats, but I voted for it that my voted for this administration. And I just truly am so sorry and just want to words can't express how appalled and horrified I am to witness that people I voted for are tasking our law enforcement with terrorizing private citizens in a way that is really reminiscent of the Stasi and the black shirts.

Warner Brothers' 'Bean Counters' Scrap Batgirl
"Warner Brothers scrapped batgirl and the Scooby-Doo movie Scoob!. Holiday haunt. Which, I don't know who the hell's gonna see that movie outside of your young kids, but this cancellation by Warner Brothers, these were made for HBO Max streaming movies and they were both scrapped. And that came as a shock to the town. Then there are several schools of thought here, but this move announced to a big rejection of WarnerMedia's strategy to make original $70 million live action and animated films directly for HBO Max. So the makers of batgirl, live action batgirl, and the animated Scoob!, they found out the other day that those films were being stopped in their tracks, the timing is really weird and awkward for batgirl that directors ideal are being Bilal fala, both in Morocco for one of their weddings. How's that for a wedding gift? Your movie's not gonna be aired with scrapping, it's done. Forget all the work that you did the last year and a half. And they are expected to return to the cutting room and continue to work on this film, but no, so them Leslie grace the star, J. K. Simmons, Brandon Fraser, and Michael Keaton as Batman, all that work down the tubes. They got paid, but still. Initially, there were cries that the scrapping of batgirl was bad optics because the title role is played by a Latina. Doesn't look that when you scrap a movie with a Latina in the lead. But there were reasons for the move and in both cases the filmmakers would tell that it came down to a purchasing accounting maneuver available to Warner Brothers discovery because the company had changed hands and also changed strategies from the previous regime. This always happens. It's a pain in the ass. I hate when creativity is killed off by the bean counters upstairs.

Josh Kraushaar and Hugh Discuss Kyrsten Sinema's Future
"Focus on senator sinema for our remaining time, Josh crush hour. And you can follow Josh at Josh crush hour on Twitter. It's now no longer hotline Josh's moved over to axios. And Jim van der Hayes very happy with himself for grabbing Josh crush hour. Josh senator sinema established herself as a successor to McCain. His iconic moment is the thumbs down on the attempt to repeal ObamaCare. She spent a lot of political capital, grabbing that middle ground. She will give it up. She will forfeit it if she hits the second iceberg. You can run into one iceberg in the Senate and took off the base, but then if you run into the other iceberg and pass a tax and spend Bill, you've left yourself sinking. And what do you think are the chances she goes along in caves to the left here? Well, look, she's got covered from Joe Manchin now. So Joe Manchin is up in 2024 as well. So I think politically speaking, I think she may try to negotiate the changes to the bill. She's been a longtime foe of the carried interest provision that then this legislation that there may be some change that she requires and it'll get whittled out if she ultimately has the leverage right now. But she had to worry about a democratic primary too. Right now, if she was on the ballot in Arizona, probably lose in a primary. She's in good shape in the general. She's got a lot of independence, even some Republicans would support her. But I think she's going to spend some of that political capital on the right or in the middle and try to shore up her standing among the liberals who have been human mad at her in Arizona. I have a hard time seeing how she comes out against this. You have all the moderates in the house, even the progressives, having the candidate they're going to support this when it gets to the lower chamber.
Jake Sherman and Hugh Discuss the Open Amendment Process
"It works, I want people to understand this. I'm writing a column on voter Rama. After reconciliation gets put onto the floor, an open amendment process follows. And anyone can propose everything. It's been used for symbolic votes because at the end of that process, there's a wrap around amendment that takes it back to the original bill. So they just jettison everything they passed. Unless something gets the kind of support that makes the wraparound amendment yield to it. If I stated that accurately, Cenk. Yes. Yes, you have. And the voter Rama will take a long time. It could take as many it could take three, four, 5 days on the Senate floor. There are ways to control how long it takes. But yes, there's basically at the end of the process, there will be an amendment that kind of nullifies all the other amendments that they pass. So unless they, unless they provide for some of those amendments to go in, the ones at cinema, for example, wants, correct? Yes, that's right. So I think to remember, sorry you, but the thing to remember is that 51 50 votes, 51 votes in this case. It means you could do anything in the Senate pretty much if you stick together. On this bill. So if I were the Republicans, instead of doing all the symbolic stuff out there, I'd focus all my energy on a handful that you want to actually make it into the wrap around amendment. One of them, for example, take some of that green money and build nuclear plants, the new ones, the kind that Bill Gates likes, the modular, very safe, very low risk. I mean, extremely low risk nuclear plants. They can be built quickly. Do you think that would have a prayer of picking up a 51st vote from the Democrats? The answer to that is maybe, but the larger thing is Schumer is able to or should be able to and will try to hold people together against some of these amendments. And I don't know about the nuclear. I don't know if they're going to do something like that, but if you want to, he's able to, he could try to convince people to stick together because they don't want to they don't want to change this bill too much.
Salena Zito Joins Hugh to Discuss the Pennsylvania Senate Race
"Matters more than the Pennsylvania Senate race. There are some that matter as much, but if John fetterman beats Doctor Oz in Pennsylvania, be very hard to get to 51 or 52 that the Republicans need. Selena zito will be on the show. I think between ten times between now and the election day. And so Selena, I gotta ask you, how's this feel to you? 'cause it seems to me that fetterman still isn't well and Doctor Oz is out there working it hard. How does it feel on the ground in Pennsylvania? It feels like what a statewide race tradition traditionally feels like in this state. And with the exception that federman is an out there and awe is out there all the time. Now, I think it's kind of fascinating if you read the reports outside of, you know, in D.C. or out of New York, they're saying, oh, Oz isn't anywhere. Well, he's exhausting. He's everywhere. He is doing that sort of unglamorous, unsexy thing of just going around the state, logging on now, more importantly, logging on relationships and rebuilding them with people. As we all know, it was a pretty ugly primary, but most primaries are ugly.
Economic Hardship Is Descending Across the United States
"Across the United States, economic hardship is descending as Joe Biden's plan takes form. Corporations on the front lines of the economy say cracks are forming according to The Washington Post in recent days executive from the biggest tech retail and consumer product companies all attempted to address questions about the state of the economy, which is treated on the brink of a recession. Recession that now identifying is not recession. So even though we've had two successive quarters of negative growth, experts and Joe Biden say it's not a recession.
The Schumer-Manchin Tax Increase on Everyone
"Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal this money has an editorial. The Schumer mansion tax increase on everyone. Majority leader Chuck Schumer wants a Senate vote on his partisan tax deal with Joe Manchin as early as this week. And no wonder he wants to rush it through. The more Americans learn about it and what's in this tax and spend behemoth, the more they will dislike it. Start with the author's central claim that the bill reduced the deficit and thus inflation. The pen Wharton budget model, which senator Manchin has been known to watch, examine the details of the shimmer and Manchin Bill and found it doesn't contain any net deficit reduction until 2027. Quote the impact on inflation is statistically indistinguishable from zero through 2031 says the Penn Wharton modelers. We don't agree with those who think deficit reduction leads in a straight line to lower inflation, but that's what the Democrats claim for their bill. If the first deficit reduction doesn't come for 5 years, where's the help on inflation today? The 200 and 327 billion in new taxes could slow inflation at the economy falls into recession. And that may be the quiet expectation the journal continues. The tax increases on business will discourage investment while the Federal Reserve is also raising business costs with higher interest rates. But tax policy should be working in the opposite direction to encourage investment when the fed is tightening in the economy as close to recession. Evidence is emerging that the new shimmer mansion 15% minimum tax on corporate book income is especially harmful to U.S. manufacturing firms. And analysis by Congress's joint committee on taxation, hardly a nest of supply ciders, found that 49.7% of the tax would hit U.S. manufacturers.

"Yes yes you know. And i think it says on the bottom a few if you feel desperate and you have no way to turn cold this number and of course you can call my number. You know i. I walk someone through a talk. Somebody down off the ledge so to speak It's imperative it's imperative and i'm so glad that we have a whole month dedicated to suicide awareness and prevention. It's it's it's very very important brandon very so. How do you feel like you can spot somebody. That's having suicidal thoughts. Or or how. How can you be aware a lot of people because say you know i was. I had no idea that this was going on in this person's life how what are the telltale signs. Do you fight well it. Does this certain things that you know it's depression you know. Somebody doesn't want to get out of bed. Somebody's not eating. somebody's not showering. I mean that's the really end result of concede to beginning parts of it. They detach you know. They're off their norm. They're not doing what they usually do. And again that's for short term people and long-term people. So you know. We is recovering community. We have to look out for ourselves. Yes we have a lot of assets all over the place. But i think one addict talking to another or one alcohol talking to another and really really getting in there and really not just saying. Hey how you doing. And i'm fine and walking away. No you gotta look at the mannerisms you know you can see it. Almost narrow is the is pervasive depression. That really just flows over people and they think that they have no way out except for that. I wanted to interject something you know back a long time ago. This is my vein okay. And and every time i put that needle in my arm and i got that you know maybe get technical you know but when i got that red hit i thought for a split second. This could be my last shot and you know what i did. Brandon shot at anyway. So it's difficult to really scare. And that's not what we're trying to do here which went to enlighten. But it's difficult to scare an addict because it'll for me. I thought it'd be my last shot but it was so important for me to get high and not be sick that i just blocked. I just moved along knowing that this could be literally my last shot. I what what do you think the relationship is at coincide. Well i mean. Obviously it's it's kinda suicidal drugs but how do you like. Do you think that people actually want to die. That are doing drugs and and drinking at an alcoholic level correct. It's a slow death. i guess right well. Some people say drinking is like suicide one sip at a time. You know bodies not really developed for us to process the amounts of alcohol that we put in it as the alcohol. it's just huge amounts of it now bodies just can't take it so you know i kind of went off on a tangent so your question was what. I'm sorry. the relationship like the relationship between drugs drugs into aside. Do you feel like that. It's kind of like committing. It's like you want to die. Do you feel like people wanna die. That are actually using you. Feel like that's it's they don't want they don't want to like do it right away. It's just slowly killing yourself over time or have iraq. What's behind exactly so you know lately we've had to deal with this in influxes fenton.

Ernie thanks so much brandon as usual. Thanks for having me. So i guess today we're gonna talk bout a relapse and that kind of stuff so let's start off with a question. What tends to be the behaviors for people that are before they go through relapse. Okay well the standard line is that relapse happens. Way before ingestion of the substance or that behavior so The of it is the actual ingestion of the substance or the behavior. But you'll see people's behavior start to change. You'll see the not acting the way they act in a normal sober way You'll see them cut back on meetings. You'll see them Not have the involvement. They used to have But it doesn't have to be twelve stepped base somebody indications are this sleeping alive. They're angry ally You know just behaviors that are counter intuitive to what they usually present as a clean and sober man or woman. So when you're talking about like behaviors like sleeping a lot. How how would you know that. Somebody just not naturally tired or or if they're actually added sleeping at six o'clock at naturally tired you know. Everyone needs a nap. Now dan you know maps good but on a consistent basis if somebody is missing appointments or Missing work just again normal things level or who knows the loved one as well as as as you do. No one does so you know what normal behavior is brandon.

I'm on no jovan. They say. I don't know who they are always hair being quoted. They say they say the first step is the hardest one. Because it's the one that you have to make a commitment and the first step reads that you're powerless over alcohol or your addiction. There's a dash and then you'll life had become unmanageable say unmanageable. I mean that you can't manage it left your devices. You being the attic. Not you being branded but you being the addict left ear devices. You have chosen things that have not helped. You left your devices. The things that you thought would fix you will make you feel better. Limited period of success. Obviously you need a new manager. You need somebody else to manage it. Nets with transition is into power the universe relying upon that to be your new manager. So that's what they say. I think they're all difficult in their own right. Just a little personal antidote.

Your rather recently. told the foul suppose it's as it relates to win Lebron play dead game against Michael Jordan picture that went up. So back in my. Room editor. Everybody was talking about it very fascinated because we did bulk when it happened. When your rubber later defense on the Bra on Kobe, on Michael Truth had the distinction having laid defense on all three of those guys. Where you feel your brother had made the biggest adjustment guarding sub one Lebron James's size because he's built potato just like metal piece. On. I think. That's that's a good. That's a great question. Braun by Lebron gave his. Brian just wanted to take the same amount of shops. Lebron's WANNA get thirty Ron one, hundred, twenty, eight shots. You're GonNa Shoot Twelve or twenty eight or whatever like that or nine for twenty eight or something like that. You know I mean it was it was definitely different with Lebron you know God and coby Kobe's. Kobe. Kobe to the fire you know what I'm saying. So He's WanNa Bang back which you Kobe underrated strength. You know. So you know copious go footwork and everything he used to run a lot of problems obviously you know that you know and Michael. Jordan Michael Jordan. You know he footwork Ryan to you know Like he uses he was very intellectual getting success against Ron and everything. You know Ryan to try to bully and you know be stronger than everybody and so but you know I'm surprised you didn't mention Brandon Roy Brandon Roy was like you know. The. Toughest One d tough is one you know and my pain Rosza Pain Ron never spoke against anybody in his entire life that you know of anybody got the best of them. Wrong. But I I I had a bad night or whatever. You know what I'm saying he actually went on TNT went on Craig's L. Recipes interviewed him and wrong gave him an endorsement. I think I think Brennan. Roy was the first person to actually have forty points on Ron. You know all I think that we was the first one and and like you know it really had run like. Really had to focus up. You know what I'm saying. So they go they lost the series and it could have been wrongfoot foot because you know Brandon Roy was getting a lot of success and stuff the way he play you know I was surprised that you didn't mention him but we're Lebron like The branches is he just so skills so strong so fast and so is like you know he's he's is he's three and one you know. So it is definitely kind of tough grind usually had to you try to bully and stuff like that earlier in his Lebron Career Ron was able to do that but as Lebron against stronger Grozny older and stuff at the same time. So you know. I just wish they would have both at the same time at came up together out an interesting defenses assignment you know 'cause like. These defendants today are not shutdown defenders just they just put a hand face in whatever you know but ron was able to to to lock you up Khoja down underneath your average and stuff like that. That's why we're saying like you know you know, Kawhi, Leonard Five defenders of one of the best defenders of all time. Remember they did a top ten defenders Listen Brown, was on and I'm like how I'm like Ron actually shut down all these scores back basketball and I know they left Bruce Bowen and not left. Shame. Not. Left out Gerald. Wilkins. Yeah. Yeah. And I think Ron's Bryant at the wrong reputation heard it hurt his career. He wasn't been away mornings I think he was only like six or things. I think that you know the actually you know hurt his career. So it looks it looks different the players know. The respect. Is there. In follow today's how did go from getting. Ill By coby to his teammate the following season because Ryan Kobe go back since like nineteen ninety-four not during the a you days you know we. got. Yeah, you know. So you know played high school basketball Gosh God by the way. They played in the same the same high school team together at Lasalle Academy. So you know Ron was on the scene where called aim high is actually Kenny. Smith's a you program and on Ron was young freshman on the on the team and he was his India to defend Kobe and stuff I know run always say to story I. Think he said the story before Kobe on back in the day when the best dance Bush Shou period was out in run interview Kobe and so wrong with like you came off the bench. I, came at the mid would just getting fifty I think Ron was his deuce up for the TV because that actually did not happen. Way What Yet, because we have Ryan Bronx Gronk set himself but I think Ron was frightened for the TV because that actually did not happen. You Know Kokin give fifty who ron came off the bench whatever Rao actually own gave him a tough time that's actually wanted to that was one of the Games where Ron started gains is getting is on him for my you know college coaches and everything it was one of those games that was one of them himself so. You know on. Hemmitt Kobe go way back and they had great competition for years and you know. You know, of course, they had the almost fight, but there wasn't gonNA.

"brandon " Discussed on Digital Leadership with Brandon Cox
"Off. E welcome back to digital leadership with Brandon Cox. That's me. This is where I share some perspective and encouragement about life leadership and sometimes even some digital marketing stuff. Hopefully, you're into those things this will benefit you. Maybe you can even share it with others been talking about leadership, and what's killing our leadership. What is it? That's drowning us what is it? That's taking leaders out of the picture when we desperately need. Good leaders last time, I kind of talked about identity, and how the most dangerous destructive force on earth is a man who doesn't know who he is from a leadership perspective. I think there's some other factors. I wanna get into the next few weeks today. I wanna talk about burnout and burn out his actually closely related to identity, but burn out is a huge problem. I think it's misunderstood. I think it's underestimated in terms of. Of what it can do to sort of wreck the trajectory of a good leadership pathway someone get into some solutions. But I wanna talk about the problem. I when I was the editor at pastors dot com. We would sometimes publish articles about burnout how to recover from emotional burn out. And those were always the most popular articles. They got the most clicks that they had the most people reading them than the most people sharing them. They had the most comments had the most people opening up in discussion on Facebook and elsewhere about this is me I needed this. I'm going through this right now, I believe burnout is epidemic. And I think there's some reasons for that that I wanna get into in just a second. But, but this is an enormous issue. It's an enormous issue. And I want you to understand. It's an issue. I have walked through personally that when I go back close to a decade ago in my own life and leadership. I go back to a time when I was taking on too many things too many projects, partly because I didn't know who I was. I don't think that taking on projects is the problem. In fact, I think that can actually be a good thing. If you know who you are. And why you're doing it? If you understand the why. But I was in a period of phase of life where I I was no longer certain of who I was I was no longer comfortable in my own skin. I'd gotten discouraged. I had let of the approval of others become a driving force in my life. I was very concerned about keeping everybody. Happy and getting everything done, right. I was treating my own life kind of a legalistic mentality was a big checklist. And I was failing. And because of that my attention was all over the place trying to fill that void trying to trying to match up. Meanwhile, as a result of all of that, I was hurting in some relation. Ships. I was distanced from friends. I was distanced from my wife, emotionally speaking, I was just going through that sort of time where I began to isolate began to burn out. It was down ruled downward spiral. One of the things that changed was we moved to California and got into a healthy church and healthy community and into a good small group and into lots of situations that really helped me to recover get back on track regained, focus regain clarity. And just re, cultivate, a new passion for the things that mattered the most in life. And so out of that came a big emphasis in our church that we've been planting for seven years, grace hills church big emphasis on reaching out to people who are broken who are hurting are walking through problems and issues like that and who need help. So I wanted to help in this podcast. I wanted to tackle the issue of burnout because it's near and dear to my heart. I love pass. Shire's a love leaders of people who are in leadership and are suffering going to hard time. And I just wanna give you a some practical wisdom as well. As some personal encouragement today. I let me let me just dive in and talk about what I think are some of the misconceptions about burnout. Some of the reasons why we get burnout to begin with our because we miss understand certain things about life. Certain things are culturally popular, we we read books about them. And so we assume that that must be the problem, for example. I think there's a false emphasis today on balance, we talk a lot about the word balance in how you know, you need a balanced life. Don't be a work a holic be more balanced and the problem with balance it it's not as it's not that balances bad. It's that sometimes we misunderstand what healthy balance looks like healthy balance. I think is when you. You look at your life. As who you are. You are physical see have a body. You are mental. You have a mind you are emotional. You have a heart. You are volition all you have a will you have relationships? So if you're talking about I wanna grow in a balanced way. That's fantastic. Like, I wanna grow. Personally. I wanna grow spiritually I wanna grow relational. I want to be healthy physically that is a good kind of balance to seek after. But what we do with balance. A lot of times is we look at all the different areas of our lives. And we go Kay. I need to give make Shrem giving adequate amounts of time and attention to each area of my life. And so in a given week we might go while I need to work forty fifty hours need to do well for my boss needed to do. Good on this job. I gotta do good in my business. And then I've also got a marriage to maintain. So I gotta give some energy there. Get some time and some focused on my marriage got my finances. I need to give some time and some energy to managing my finances. Well, so let me focus on that for a bit. I've got kids. So I need to give some time and some energy to my kids of got the school or the nonprofit of the charity that volunteer with maybe the board I serve on. So I gotta give them some time and some energy and what we wind up doing is. We treat life like a pizza, and we try to give a slice to everything. That's that's grabbing for attention. We try to give a slice to all of the different areas. And the reason why that leads to burn out is because there's not really an emphasis on how much I have to give. There's just a constant demand and pressure to give more to everything and everybody and the problem is I've only got so much energy to give. So. What do you do with that? Then how how do you give to all those things in a way that that's healthy? That makes sense, but doesn't keep you sort of burning out. I believe we need to shift our emphasis from balance to rhythm from balance to rhythm. In fact, I did a whole forty five minute teaching session on this in the digital leadership lab. So if you're interested in going deeper into rhythm just out digital leadership lab dot com. Talk about this a lot there. But basically, it is instead of dividing my life out into pieces and giving a peace to all these different things. I need to respect the rhythm of life. I need to know that they're going to be weeks. They're going to be moments where I'm really busy with kids stuff. You know, like, my my kids might have a couple of programs this week at school some sports things some different things going on. And therefore, I'm not gonna be able to give as much to my job or two maybe managing. In my house, or my finances that week, and that's okay. That it's part of the rhythm that they're in my rhythm that they're moments to take breaks. Pastor. Rick Warren, always says, we need to divert daily withdrawal, weekly and abandoned annually. That is take some time every day take a day off every week take some take a week out of your year two weeks of year. Go on vacation. That's all part of the rhythm. Working hard is part of the rhythm of life being really close to my family and friends that's part of my rhythm in life. So instead of trying to divide myself between all these different areas, I need to find the rhythm another misconception. I think that leads to burnout is a misunderstanding of the word priority in our modern culture, we take priority, and we divide it into multiple priorities. And we kinda come up with his list. And so it's like, you know guy. God family church work. And so those are my number one number two number three number four priorities in life. And so God comes first and priority. And I understand that. There's some sense in that the problem is the word priority is not a plural word. It's a singular word the ancient concept of priority. We get it from our Latin a priority. It's a single thing. It's one thing. And so it's not so much about having your ten or twelve priorities in life ordered correctly. It's about living for one priority. And other words, what is my purpose and out of my one purpose everything else flows. Everything else fits for me as a Christian. I get that. From Matthew six thirty three where Jesus said seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and when. You do that everything else will fall into place. So if I spend my life living for God's kingdom purposes, if that's my priority, then I'm gonna have healthier family, a healthier personal life, a healthier relationship with my co workers and so forth and so on. So it's not about having a bunch of priorities and put them in the right order. It's about living for your purpose and letting everything else flow out of that one purpose for which you live. I also think another big misconception. Another problem that leads to burnout is an over emphasis on busy nece and overwhelm another words. I don't just think we're addicted to business. I think we're addicted to talking about business. I mean, when you know, how is your week and most of us off as busy crazy house life lately. It was busy crazy. The funny thing is when I listened to high influence high impact leaders may be CEO's of corporation that do really well. And they have great family life or people that maybe have written lots of books, and they have, you know, a big ministry to millions or whatever when I listened to people in those scenarios. I don't often hear them talk about how busy they are. There's there's not a lot of talk among really successful people about oh, man. I'm just maxed out all the time. I'm just stressed out all the time. Instead, there's more of a confidence about life. And so I'm not saying that we should ignore business. I think if you're too busy will will come back to that. In a second. You don't need to be too busy. But I do think it's possible to do multiple things in life to have multiple projects and multiple things going on and still not be overly busy and overwhelmed. Part of it is we take we kinda take when moments when we're overloaded with things when we're busy with lots of things and we start telling ourselves, I'm just overwhelmed. I've just got too
"brandon " Discussed on Digital Leadership with Brandon Cox
"Off. Hello, welcome to digital leadership with Brandon Cox. This is a podcast where I share some perspective and some encouragement on life leadership and digital marketing. So if you fall into any of those three categories, you're alive, you're a leader or your into digital marketing. And hopefully, if your leader you want to learn about digital marketing, then I think you're gonna enjoy this and get some things out of it. Hope you'll subscribe and pass it along and share it with other people in this inaugural episode as I kind of launched this podcast. I wanna lay a bit of a foundation for the coming weeks. I wanna talk about some things that are killing leadership is really the burden out of which the reason why I'm launching this podcast to begin with is because I I want to speak into the lives of leaders. I believe that leaders are suffering that more than ever before were watching as people of. Influence people who influence their their world or community their church for good are struggling they're failing. They're falling. They're going through hard times, and and quitting and checking out and get knocked out and getting fired and just all kinds of things occurring around us in the leadership world. And I think there's some things that are killing us some some enemies some tactics. Some traps some threats that we need to be aware of and I want to cover those over the next few weeks. I wanna talk about six in particular wanna start off today by talking about a lack of identity, and how that affects us as leaders. Also wanna talk over the coming weeks about burn out about mental health issues about sin and spiritual lethargy and how to get your passion back. I wanna talk about marriage and relationship issues in the life of the leader. And I wanna talk about some limiting beliefs. But I wanna start off today by talking about the issue of identity. How is it that you? You as a leader come to know who you are zig Ziglar guy that I've come to appreciate a lot in the last few years once said and often said that you gotta be before you can do. And you gotta do before you can have what he meant. Was we often define ourselves. We decide whether we're successful not based on what we have. I have possessions. I have prestige have power have a position and the problem with that is you can't have until you do until you do certain things you do something for a living. You take some action. But you shouldn't do until you be until you know, who you are at your core until your identity issue is settled because when your identity issues settled, then you know, what to do. And then you will have the right things a love what zig said, I think he's spot on. Then I wanna just follow that train of thought for a minute and talk about what I think are some wrong. Sources of identity. Annual reports of the largest and fastest growing churches and so forth. And if you don't have a strong sense of identity all that can affect you. By comparison, you start to start to kind of compare your blooper reel to everybody else's highlight reel social media doesn't help. But you know, it's not the problem either. It's it's an identity issue. I think we also route our identity sometimes in our achievements and the danger in that is when my achievements don't stack up enough. I feel a loss of identity or when I walked through failure. I forget who I am. And I m I really am. I really right about this. You know, if all of my achievements, are what prop up my Dimity. I think I'm in trouble. My mom used to work for guy that had what he called an ego wall in his office. And it was a wall that had all of his degrees and certificates and and awards and letters from famous people and all that kind of thing had had it their article. That were written about him because he'd worked on some high profile cases and whatnot. And so whenever he would get down. He look at that wall. And it would remind him of all of his accomplishments. The problem is sometimes what we accomplish we don't necessarily have a lot of visual recognition of, you know, not a lot of certificates and awards for the things that matter the most. And so it's not just it's not just chievements. It's not just comparison. It is it is more than that. I think another source of identity that is unhealthy and wrong. Is that we often identifier selves, according to a tribe. According to the camp that we fall in another words, there's a group guys out there group of fellow peers colleagues, and they all tend to believe certain things, they all tend to say certain things behave in a certain way. And we get worried that if I don't believe or behave or talk. In the same way, as they do if I don't criticize the same people as they do I won't fit in anymore and tribalism is a terrible source of identity because what if the whole tribe is wrong. What if you need to break apart on an issue, you need to have a strong enough identity to go at the end of the day? Their approval is not what drives me so a speech super careful with those false
