"Pandemic. Brandon Wright is co author of a timely new book entitled Getting The Most for The Education. Buck. Brandon is editorial director at the Thomas before him Institute in Washington, D. C. And he joins us now to talk about strategies for improving efficiency in public education. Brandon. Welcome to American radio Journal Brendan As long as I can remember going back many, many years. The one constant when it comes to public education is a demand for more money, more money, more money. It's a never ending demand. Does it really matter how much money are school districts are spending so much is what it is they do with that money once they get it. So both are important. But the former how much school have dominates the conversation is almost the entire conversation. And that's a problem because the other part how the money spent. It is equally, if not more important, and that's what this book is about, even if the school district is adequately funded or is pretty crunched. Every dollar can be spent better and usually dollars are spent. Well, that's really a big problem in when we started this book, I was we didn't know that we're goingto enter a pandemic that was going to strange school budgets for For many years to come, and it was timely before this happened, but it's especially timely now. Schools aren't going to get as much as they want to get for a very long time. So they need to learn how to spend the money that they have better now, This actually presents a really good opportunity. It's kind of a silver lining to this crisis. What we found in one of our chapters we look ATT replaces that have done this well, and one is Miami Dade County on after 2009. When the economy went down, they obviously didn't have as much full funding as they wanted to, but they had leaders in place. Who wanted to make smart changes who wanted to spend her money efficiently. And what this crisis back then gave them was an opportunity actually do that They finally had the leverage. To push forward changes. That made their dollars go further. The people who in the past we're saying No, Don't tell me that. Just give me more. They realized they couldn't get more so Their argument kind of quieted down. So this presents an opportunity for school districts around the country, so actually, for the first time in a long time, make the physical changes. The budgetary changes actually improved the teaching in the classroom and what's didn't swear. Taking a look at those changes, then Brandon as you look at school district budget, are there some areas of spending that stand out as being more beneficial for students, therefore, perhaps should be funded to Ah, larger degree and then are there areas that are wasteful and either should have funding reduced or maybe not even be spent it all What you find is that for the last 30 40 years Well, spending has gone up dramatically. But oddly, teacherssalaries basically becomes flat, And that's because all of his money isn't really being spanked. Directly on things that are generally going into the classroom definitely being spends on question instruction, which obviously makes a huge difference in what has learned what. Instead, they're spending it on is in large part. There's a huge increase in non instructional, non classroom staff. So help in the office is helping the school district all of these sort of bureaucratic roles that have been added In part because of sort of overarching, overbearing laws on the need for compliance, but also just sort of inability for bureaucracies to pare down and instead they tend to stay the same size or grow. So we have found that there is actually two chapters in the book that air about this one is about staffing in general, and the other one is about specially education. And in both of these places, we find that Well district that fund. Their money wisely end up getting more out of the classroom with less money if they concentrate that money on highly skilled and higher paid Teachers and or specialist. So teachers for the general education kids and specialist for the special education kids who would actually be in general classrooms, but with his extra help, So it's More money, hire skilled people. As opposed to what we generally do now, which is ah lot of cash to a lot of low skill, low paid people, another area of spending Brandon and in my home state of Pennsylvania. I know this is what's been driving tax increases in school districts all over the Commonwealth. I would assume a problem all over the country is the amount of money that is having to be spent on pensions. Can you talk for a minute or two about how pension arrangements can be changed to bring those costs under control? We have a whole chapter about this in the book and combined U. S. States of actually Master $500 billion and unfunded debt. For public sector pensions obviously includes classroom teachers and just 30. Cents of every dollar spent ordered that actually goes to people who are employed right now. 70 cents goes to people who are already Retired. So what we recommend in the book is that states closed their existing passion, planned and roll future teachers in different types of things like for one case, this improves transparency and make teachers active participants on DH. Significantly reduces costs. Obviously, if you're unemployed, you would rather have a pension than a 401 K. But the sad fact is that they're just not sustainable, and they haven't been for a long time in the art right now, even though they still exist. We have been talking with Brendan right? Brandon is the editorial director at the Thomas before him Institute. He's also co editor of the new book,.
Phillies owner John Middleton questioned after deciding to fire Gabe Kapler
"Last year. Hindsight's great, but it wasn't hindsight. John Middleton at the news conference last year when Hey, fired Gabe Kapler, and this is self explanatory, and let's hear John When you fired Ruben Amaro, you said it's a results based business, right? Gabe Kapler took the hit. And I'm wondering why it was just Gabe Kapler. And I, among other people are wondering why this and I like both Matt and Andy. Why those two gentlemen are sitting with you today after what you've done, so I'm gonna ask you a question. How are you going to give you some stats? The question is this You tell me what part of this organization isn't better today and really substantially better today than it was four years ago when they came So that's a little minor league system and I see since match drafted I believe you have two players that made the major leagues and Kohler bring this year and hazily. So outside of that, I'm wondering there's a feeder system. Other teams have injuries and they've overcome them. The Phillies couldn't and I don't think it was all games for, but I realized the decision had to be made. But what did he have to support him? From your draft picks. So happened Let me I've got the bullpens IRA, but to answer your question in the second half of the season, particularly from the trade deadline on Howard Isn't it? The fourth highest for the best bullpen? You're a in baseball. So this kind of sit there and say that covered was bears is not true, because if that's the case, then what about the other 2016? The worst bullpen. The cupboard was bare. Look at the bullpen this year. I love the way McClintock and he looked at Macklin Tak when he said that he fed him all these stats. Two roll out during this news conference. That's a joke. The bullpen the fourth best from July on well, this season doesn't go from July 1, and that's It was, it was a mirage. It was a joke to defend him and then animate failure says Well, we have three players in the top 100 baseball in the minor league system. There's 30 teams. That's barely an average. The Braves had five in the top 64. So let's go. Let's move on. So this week, McClintock and this is beautiful, too. This is a joke. God, let's go with McClintock. Um I am really proud of this team the way that they have overcome Not only the cove it issues early in the year, but more recently, the way the guys have stepped up to overcome some of the injuries that we've had Andi put themselves in a position this week to control their own destiny on DH Make a push for October. Um, that's probably The biggest thing for me, Bob is that I'm proud of the way this group is handled it. There's been, um, you know again, there been many challenges, most of which you've written about, but Just to see guys. Come up from the system and contribute to see the way that No nap and March John have performed in Jae Hee's absence to see The way that bone has been able to slide over from third to first security downs from 2nd 3rd to help us navigate. Reese is injury. Um, you know the way that Kodiak come up and got a couple of big plate appearances for us. I'm sure I'm missing. Jo Jo and Brandon have taken down beginnings the last couple of weeks. I think that's the thing I'm most proud of with. This group has been really rallied around the next man up mentality and put themselves in a good position heading into the final week. It's a joke. It's a joke I spin. He is the new spin doctor, Philadelphia. They've navigated through the Kobe. So is every other team. The Cardinals are still in it, and they had 11 doubleheaders. The Marlins had to sit in a hotel room for over over seven days, and they're in the playoffs. I don't want to hear about navigating through it. I don't want to hear about injuries. The Braves lost at one time or another, Every one of their five starters. They lost Freddie Freeman at the beginning of the year. They lost a kuna. I mean, it's a joke to you to say, Oh, yeah way injuries and bone moves from third to 1st 1st is probably his natural position and sugar goes from 2nd and 3rd. He started the season at third. It's been It's nonsense, and Jo Jo You know, coughed it up the last two outings. Stop stop. They actually got a break The way Hoskins was hitting that those things happened in their offense, maybe became a little bit better in five years. He's got one player to show for it. One player And that's Alec. Bone. One player
Fresh update on "brandon" discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani
"I don't know if he could take them though certainly back to them later and. I don't WanNa. Say is he was in his head at all I don't think that's the case thing. It's hard to kind of factor those things in against as you'd you'd have to, you'd have to ask him but. Yeah. It's more. It's more just the kind of style that he has an. Manages what a great great great striker is whatever your challenge is how? How different from this? I think when Kosta was in there I think had a game plan. You know he's GonNa do this do that but when he got in there and after about a couple minutes, he just looked he looked he he looked around and like Oh. My God I am not making the Romero joke but Costa's literally Romero for a moment he was standing in the right in the middle just eating kicks, which is exactly where Romero did. The only difference is Romero eight lakes for five rounds basically Does the only difference they eventually caused like screw this I gotta do something and when he tried to do something, you know we saw what happened so. He had there's there's something when you're in there, you're throwing those fans and you're moving and is he's just a step ahead of you. Unless you're unless you're inside that I don't. I. I don't know. It's just. Something, he must he just he just suspending you There is a perfect example, Romero's beserk or with anyone else he could not. The people just Mitt that he was pushing the fight against this new die because everyone just rewind that neither guy was doing anything. He was he was really frozen and mystified by Z. Styles. So it really happens to everyone. Actually that Ramirez game plan was present like that's how you unfortunately like in a moment like that. That's how you beat out of Stagno or have any chance to beat them is to not let him explode. You have to like make him come to you and you have to be able to counter effectively and I cost like didn't want to do that. I actually think it's the opposite of, is he getting in his head? I think cost thought he was an is he's had a lot more than I, hope not. Because a lot of people bought into that narrative especially after the way it always is said even is he talked about it at the post fight I think cost about into that a little bit more that Oh. Yeah I, got him like his. is melted melted his mind. He's he's officially under under my spell and turned out that wasn't the case I don't know if his if his team convinced them of that or he felt that way but it certainly didn't play out that way in the fight and things change very quickly because even like. In in the early stages of the fight was taunting him and saying all these different things and doing all these movements and trying to piss them off and it didn't work and I think he realized Oh. Yeah maybe I wasn't his head as much thought. It's not GonNa this is docket dwell. Inch just want to compliment is the again to be an undefeated fighter like cost is such an impressive feat and Essentially. What I think I think is he took maybe one decent. Kick to the body I think that's about it and it's just one right in the chest. Yeah. Just I into finishing Kosta just like that. Just. That was the most impressive title Defence I've seen to me my mind since. Time Willie over Darren. Till. Were just like, wow you thought that was gonna be this is GonNa be crazy probably Oh, my God. Oh my God and then like that was completely one sided. Wow, that was even yeah. So. That's the by. Until it was also undefeated this. Yeah. And defeating and defeating an undefeated fighter I remember the interview I think Dan Coordinated a few years ago he was talking about his first few fights took he fought like undefeated fighters but guys who are two and three you know and he was talking about the DC talking about these two fighters you saying it is so hard to finish undefeated fighters. They never quit and to make a guy quit for the first time in his life is just said, it was an incredible feat. He was very proud of it. So I never thought about that. So when I think of, is he doing that two guys like? Costume time. Willie doing guys like Darren till. Is. A very. Good to watch. Else we got. Your man. But the great performance by Roy Val who do you think he should fight next? Do you think he deserves someone in the top five in the flyweight division? Throughout his suggestion, I don't know if I'm going with this, but maybe it's just the moments taking over me. Rain Arrive Alvis has been Al Cape. I wanted I want. I want all of it. Thank you. For the question. I mean. I got jazz APPALACHIA brought up. Brandon Marino. Again Brandon versus Brandon but I think I think Marino. We've discussed a bunch of times as essential point I. Think we're all waiting for him to fight again he. Oh He's already got and that's what we mentioned as whoever wins. That should just get a title shot I. They shouldn't have to fight anyone else again. and Roy values on that path, you'll end up fighting with makes way to the top but boy, he is a a in his first who fights to take out a veteran and former world title challenger in Tim. Elliott. To beat a car front and finished by the way in a division that say, Oh, nobody finishes anybody to finishes to finish his to and on the so far he's as boundless ball of energy. He's incredibly unpredictable He's an I think even though he's very hard on himself after his fights. I think I I really believe when he's leading up to the and in the fight has I think he's got his competence is just I don't think he thinks about what? Adversity either he always thinks I'm in the fight I'm I'm gonNA find a way to get this done and Man that performance today was really really impressive because Kaikoura France is let shit like that guy that guy himself as maybe one or two weeks mattel shot now he gets knocked back in the line so. Gosh what's next I it can't be random around like we said, I'll I'll. Just mention match Schnell, which I don't know people think that's that's behind..

Fresh update on "brandon" discussed on BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast
"Because now, I'm aligned in and I think other people feel I. Don't know if you have listened to the show I never been listening right now I feel more aligned in what? I'm doing right now than I have in a decade like where I was like doing a lot of other stuff it didn't never felt quite right and that that's bigger pockets. That's the the books that I'm reading right now it's the real estate business. I'm doing the flipping them and everything feels so aligned right now. Where that didn't before and so it's just it's just it's like all cylinders firing at once so And people ask me that like what's different about Brandon Turner and I say he's open. You you part of your nature is you just have open possible open ended possibility of what's what's actually possible and it's interesting is when certain levels of wealth happen? Ideas and stuff ski we it more and more open right like making a hundred grand is hard. Make two, hundred, fifty grand is really hard right. Getting into fifty is hard. But when you get the to fifty everything's covered getting going from two fifty to five hundred easy because we start to get more and more open and usually people are in place of one thing which is actually the lack of alignment because it's the present state of not having it. But people are always running patterns. Your present mindset you're thinking from is your past references, your schooling, your parenting, all of that stuff, and that's it literally creates the field you're playing the game of life on. And I kid you not eighty percent the time I'm helping clients remove roadblocks to success That's what I do removing roadblocks over our expectations. We'll have to work hard to make money will have you ever had a lead fight call you will. Yeah. So. We ended up having these conditions in our mind that have to happen before success. So they doesn't happen or we have resistance to making more money because seventy percent of the population has resistance to make you money. If you say rich people are blank, they don't say something positive. So that, we can do a whole show just on that topic. Yeah Yeah because you people either their financial comfort zone like is where they're stuck and here's a quick example like if you make one hundred grand. And you wake up tomorrow and you make fifty grand. Are you gonNA crank up the heat to get back right but you're not going to crank up the same level of heat to go from one, hundred fifty because we hit.

Antebellum's DirectorsWe Made A Slave Movie
"I watched the film twice because. It was compelling and I kind of had to like see it a second time after I've seen the twist and all that Sorta good stuff So a lot to talk about why this film now. Well, you know. We'd like to say that it was it was strategic but it but it wasn't about. SIX MONTHS DR moved to La for Miami I had this horrific nightmare that I think. was probably precipitated by the death of my father. Bit, less than a year prior that I was having some problems processing. And in this nightmare. This woman who was eating. was so desperate for help that it felt as though she was screaming across dimensions to reach anybody. And when I when I awoke from the nightmare. It didn't feel like anything that I had experienced before. It was within the the Brandon category of what would you call dream or nightmare, but it definitely felt like something other worldly like an ancestral visitation. And the next day Christian from I talked about it and ended up writing the short story because that's our process. And the natural writing the short story. We wrote the script that is now a antebellum. So you know for us as part of the work that we've done up to this moment, we've always felt like. All of the work that we were presenting or that we're trying to percent. Of that, there was an urgency of now and that that. The world in America has been. Careening. Toward disaster. And so yeah I mean we we never imagined in a million years that anything that we would create would be just for entertainment sake but that it is it is art. To, activate into catalyze a national dialogue around a host of issues. Not least of which is race in America. But without finger-wagging. you guys are co directors right and that's unusual to my experience and the last pair of CO directors. I remember the Hughes Brothers where there was a clear delineation of like I do this sort of stuff. I, this sort of stuff is there a division of labor or you guys kind of like one? Group. We pretty much. You know act as one onset were always together in the same space, which is super important because otherwise you know production designer or Qassams Zainur will come up to one of US nasty question we have to kind of be central in the same place but. What what helps us as a directing duo is that were also writing duo so that we kind of are able to have all of those knock down drag out. Battles on the creative in our own home. As writing the by the time we get onset we really have one vision at were were super. I mean within the duo is there a division? Is there I'm a little bit more this. I'm a little bit more that. I think. We've been together for twelve years and so we speak a telepathic shorthand. I don't know that we could be objective in saying that one is a little bit more this or that I think. I think. An outside observer would have to get you that answer as far as we're concerned we are we are. It's Qismat and we're we're we're certainly would have connected on on levels that feel we normal most writer director. duos were also a couple. So it's like everything is really on. Utilized.

It's the love burgundies. TREMONT DEBRAH goal. OC. Brute rose, Zach. Nine, hundred, nine. Import Bubbly. That's actually really really good. And It's a criminal chroma. is a sparkling wine from France. Isn't. From. Champagne. Champagne can be a grandma just means sparkling wine basically. But there brandon Sir you don't think of them as chromite you think of them as champagne. So everything else is a criminal and this is from Burgundy. And if you're not really up on. That part of the country. or The world I guess. The bottom part of Burgundy's this is of in northern eastern France. Is bourgeois. And the northern part is champagne and middle is the Burgundy region. and. It's home of some of the best new iron. Chardonnay in the world I mean it just that's that's ground zero for Pinot Noir Chardonnay. And they make. Like champagne does just a little bit to the north. They make bubbly to and a half may bubbly for a long long time. And this love ninety nine bubbly is made by. A group of farmers and four hundred, fifty different farmers in the region off with their grapes together and they make three and a half million bottles year. If, you want the name, it's on the. Website www cheap wine fighter dot com. It's French. Damn. I can't remember American names remember French names. But they're legit. You don't know who these who makes the winds were trader Joe's. But they're actually good in it at love. Ninety nine. This is good. Trader Joe's is a lot of buying power ninety nine. It is typically a lot less than what A. parable wine and a retail shop with being. One of the reasons is that all the in Europe are trader Joe's in. Europe is all ignored there's all ignored all these stuff. The all the United States is all these south and. Trader Joe's Aldi north, but they have a worldwide reach it almost wine shops are in a city or maybe a stay. Supermarkets can go. A long way they can be many states but they don't normally. Push.

So that's what you know. But that doesn't mean it's the quality is not there. It's not equally good if not exactly the same because it doesn't exactly the same.

"Let's talk some aforementioned cowboys in La taken on the rams. Here we go. Brandon boys down three DAK finds Michael Gallup down the sideline third and ten get him into field goal range but but hang on wait one second. A flag is thrown on the play for offense, a pass interference Gallup flag for contact with Jalen Ramsey and. The cowboys rams win it twenty to seventeen spoiling Mike. McCarthy's debut spoiling DAX season opener spoiling will you get how spoiling works? Here's the head coach on that costly pass interference call. Re I really didn't see a replay of it just watching it live. It looked like two guys hand fighting I thought it was well executed. I was I was surprised a call there. either. Way So. Very obviously disappointed in the in the call particularly at that point in the game I I thought they live both teams play tonight and you know you just don't usually see that particularly. Critical point a game. So I have not seen a it. That's about as much as I can comment on. It was clear as day they wouldn't have called then I would have been. Highly upset So it was clear as day opinion. Also. But that's what I. That's what I saw in filled out there. All right. Then the lots of get to in this one, let's start with that offensive. Pi Brandon. You've been moaning and groaning through these highlights. Did you think it was a call or not what you make of it? I'll say this by the letter of the law, this was the right call but this is the call that frustrates wide receivers and quarterbacks around the glow. Alright because when you look at it, who's the first to really engage in hand combat down the sideline jail? It's usually the generally be. Of course Yup. So what are you re Mr referee what do you want me to do? Jalen has my arm. How do I get my arm away? We're taught not to be violent with the shove and not to be violent what the separation. This Gallup did exactly what he was supposed to do. Now I will say this nick let me ask you this question was the game play. The game was played with an essay, right? L. A., Hollywood. Do. You know fun fact Jalen Jalen Ramsey his his hand coach Berry. Nez. Did a phenomenal job with them. The best thing about this was Jalen Ramsey acting job he added like. Shove to the sideline. Yeah. That was the best part about it. That's why he got this call. It reminds me of the basketball players flopping. This was a bad call, but we really look at the law if we want to see this call change moving forward.

Kelly Clarkson says life's 'been a little bit of a dumpster' since filing for divorce
"Kelly Clarkson says it. Her world right now is a bit of a dumpster because of her divorce. You know, she filed for divorce from her husband, Brandon Blackstock in June, she says, it's no secret. My life has been a little bit of a dumpster. Personally, It's been a little hard the last couple of months. I've been talking to friends that have been through a divorce. I don't know how people go through that without having some kind of outlet because it's the worst thing ever. For everyone involved. So even know she didn't even know she won an Emmy. I mean, Oh, really, Phyllis, but she didn't even her. She is so out of sorts, understandably. She had to be told. She didn't even realize she won the Emmy for best talk show host. Bless her heart. And I mean that sincerely, I mean, because I love her. So that's how that's how out of sorts and kind of wack a doodle her life is right now. I feel awful. I love Cali, Clarkson. I do. Yeah, She's very sweet.
Kelly Clarkson says life's 'been a little of a dumpster' since filing for divorce
"News, Kelly Clarkson O says that her life Has been less than ideal since the divorce. It's no secret my life has been a little bit of a Dumpster the last personally like it's a little hard. So the last couple months I've been talking to friends that have been through a divorce. I don't know how people go through that. Without having some kind of outlet because it is the worst thing ever, you know, for everyone involved. And you referring to exactly divorce? No, I mean what part? What's so bad about it? I think just in general. Yeah, that even for celebrities, they seem to do it all the time. A lot of people when they go through divorces, very financial. The burden financially is horrible. And with Kelly Clarkson, she has millions of millions millions of dollars. I think it's still sad. I think I just said, Yeah, I get it. But because I've heard celebrities interviewed and most don't talk about it, and maybe some, they can't talk about it, depending on their agreement. But they say the thing that the kids part it's the worst. Yeah, they don't have kids. It's still could be traumatic. If you were really in love and someone like cheated and left or whatever. And you weren't expecting it, But I think when kids are involved again, two kids write two or three a have to but four total. Yes, that was a disruption for all four were tough. I think the two Brandon Black stocks Children are a little bit are. They're older and that hers are younger, like four and five, I think. Well, I guess in in if you put it into perspective, if you're getting a divorce, and you have kids, for the most part, you can count on seeing them now half the time right out of 100% of time. You're not coming home every night and your kid's going to be there. They're going to be half the time our kids are gonna be there. I'm just in a general statement. Yeah, most part, and that's could be very traumatic. And in some instances, somebody's agreements or even Hollywood ones. It's every other weekend. You've just seen for two days or whatever. Well, and probably even less than that, Because if you're someone like Kelly Clarkson, who is working every gig that she's offered, it seems traveling. Maybe you don't get to take your kids everywhere because they're settling down and they're starting to do school and act it. I don't know who knows. Yeah, it's gotta be. It's gotta be hard. And also it could be Kelly. I don't know. If someone's at fault, we don't know. Let's say that she's just like tired of it. She thinks the grass is greener and that she's single mom, and it's like, Oh, my gosh is sucks. And I had it good before. Maybe, Yeah, I don't know. I don't know what their deal is, but it is honest of her to say, because sometimes celebrities to say what we just went our separate ways and we're going to teach us so much in love. We got divorced siren and we're dedicating our life, which all could be true What she's just Kelly Clarkson said. The Dumpster I won't talk about. She's not going to talk about it any more than this because, she said, there are two Young Children's lives involved and then four total. That's Hollywood news for you.
The Value Of Understanding Your Cultural Enemy
"Now, amongst other things, Steve's is the former chief creative officer overt vein media and he was talking about brandon programming. This idea that branch should think of themselves as media companies and then create content or branded programming that is consistent with the brand message but is also in a format that people want to consume and one of the ideas that he touched upon this idea of identifying your cultural enemy which I thought was pretty clever because a lot of people have trouble describing what it is they want their brand to be be the what it is or what they aspire for to be but. Most people do know what they don't like. So if you can identify what type of culture, what type of organization, what type of brand is not what you want to be then it's much easier for you to stop getting clarity on what it is. You do want to be at the very least you can identify the actions you don't want to take the actions you want to avoid so that you don't become like your cultural enemy even if you don't end up with total clarity on water these your culture is at least you'll understand what it's not gonNa be, and you'll avoid it becoming your cultural enemy. So question for you, who is your cultural enemy? Already. That is for today I do thank you for your

This was meant to avoid a hard border with the Irish Republic, which remains part of the e you many Brits were unhappy with it, but the deal was agreed and turned into a treaty under the second stage.

Kobe, to me means a lot to basketball and I think he means a lot in ways that many don't consider or honor too much If you guys recall his dad you'll jelly bean bryant, and be legend. Played for the Houston Rockets as well as The Philadelphia seventy? sixers. then played overseas in Italy and Thou Koby considered a second generation ball player and I don't really feel like when Colby played in the League in the nineties you can really quantify what that meant because you had never seen from my recollection anyone who was just so much better than their parents and was like a megastar superstar in that regard. Now. You see it with Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors Multiple NBA champion and has done it with a great team around him with head coach. Steve Kerr and technically when you look at Cairo Irving of the Brooklyn Nets. Technically was a second generation ballplayer his dad's rhetoric having been in New York, city basketball legend playing with the likes of Mario, Elie Rod Strickland and more coming from the South Bronx but as relates to Kobe, Bryant, the thing to meet that. Stands out is how that level of watching competitive basketball gave him the leg up not just in the US but also overseas in Italy picking up different languages and more and I've talked to people who have shared to me just how involve Kobe wasn't watching tape but was involved in a game even when dad played I spoke to someone who shared with me recently within the last several months. Kobe used to sweep the floors during Games Taboada ballboy the sweeper if you will just immersing himself in the game and that reminds me so much of Even In broadcast you have guys like Stuart Scott the late the legendary store guy who? before he made to ESPN worked teleprompter was out in the field shooting video was doing standups was writing scripts and more in order to be a master craft you have to know all the different roles that are played within that process and. to me that is comparatively with Kobe. Bryant did he understood the Fan's perspective? He understood the coach's perspective. He had the relationships he literally before he stepped foot on the court. When he was the thirteenth pick in the nine, hundred, ninety, six, NBA draft out a lower Merion high school the Charlotte Hornets is pick was traded for diva legitimately Kobe Bryant knew all of the positions on the floor played them well had the relationships. and really just carried out his purpose and they say the good die young he definitely on the basketball set of. lived out his career and the thing that I marvel at is towards the end. It seemed publicly that he and his daughters. Were well Lily, Tomlin Basketball Games, WNBA game that large, and you just this all of those things. So student in the game in a way That couldn't be quantified. Then it was just such a misnomer because he was eighteen years old and was better than teammates that were in your twenties and thirties. How do you place that? That's that's threatening to some people who were his elders and and they know how to take Kobe but. He lived with his purpose and that's something that I've always marveled at and and I. Walked from Kobe Bryant It's Mama Day and I and I'm sad that he's not here but you know his legacy has legend will live forever. You bring a toffee, bring the Dunkin..

"Gotta ask this question but I'm I'm GONNA. Actually have a question about numbers. This. I want to. GET It out before I lose it you I'm getting younger so more are dead. 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.

But either the warriors what the warriors would have been with Mark Jackson head coaches like Berry very curious.

But isn't it about isn't the Bulls and fill the triangle just as has the same parallels with the way, Steve? Kerr.

It's it's why it's why Kerr as that coach was good i. mean obviously, you're Kinda like the obvious.

So I think maybe someone like a taste sean prints may have to take back row I think Nah. You can't petition Prince I'm just I'm just saying I'm just WH-. Camello. Can bringing offensively is very strong but I, do think some of those key elements like a tation like a real they were pivotal in championship. Because Mellow was working Larry Brown with the coast and Larry Brown wasn't starting to look at. This point. If you think, I'm lying you ask him about two thousand four look at the Olympics that year that summer. You asked me about we talk about Stefan Marberry at the top at the top and show. Very. If you watch the back of the the documentary that we still came out. was fired by the way to West Fire. Marbury and live rounds round didn't get along very well kid up extra early just to sit on the team bus so they would not have to look at Larry Brown. Yeah. Ended up becoming the head coach of the New York. Knicks. So to your question about Carmelo Anthony we'll. Carmelo Anthony. Still WanNa Championship fell. Yeah 'cause he problem sat on the bench as a rookie tastes on print I'll be honest with you. When I watched that series in the finals I feel like patient Prince was one of the most under spoken about people. Yes. It was always will. Chris Stop Them. Well. No it was always colby struggled. It was never trumpers. Stopped him. Yeah not. Me while he was playing crazy defense with that long wingspan at all of that and was still give you twenty silently. And be only an I'll add this like. Career Rushing Cleveland the League potus. His fire to. And he talked about how nobody really wanted to win that he he I want all overly fees in the past he really wanted to do I think it was a big. It was just the timer which Kobe was playing. He had lots of proof for a lot of legal reasons got. I'm sold on his name, but during that time you remember there was a legal case that was going on I think that that the Lakers were in a situation where they banked on par. Malone. Gary Payton Shack Koby delivering a championship when there was a lot of dysfunctional team. Are Malone and. Peyton a little bit past car. But at the same time coding one day, you can't win by yourself. Epistle, the justice system of any of that underestimated Chauncey billups a guy. who was a blue collar worker who really against each other do until he wanted championship and we talked about Damian Lillard in that regard a scoring guard I remember I remember when Chelsea, Bill had hair when his plan for the. Park down a little. More. Part it was. I school. So tell is you know obviously the NBA Playoffs Star today, we got the Lakers and the blazes matchup jazz in Denver Roots Thunder Dallas Eclipse, bucks in a magic paces mime and Celtics in Philly and Toronto on the next What team should we look out for and what key player should we be looking out for couple chains I? Think you should be looking out for the Toronto Raptors they actually chance and I think that even without Kawhi Leonard just playing basketball still playing good basketball You're really seeing a kyle lowry be oury and you see how scouts the League basketball and tell people that Pascal reminds me a lot of Scottie Pippen when Michael Jordan retired the first time. And had to carry it all by himself. Late. In the Eastern Conference Semis they eventually lost in the New York Knicks. The Knicks went to the to the ninety four finals and would eventually lose newsletter. But I know tiny pippen wished he had a team like Pascal Siaka Got He didn't have any support. On Coke Ski Kerr a little purdue jacket was still an coast but I I like the Toronto Raptors I think they're a team that that that that's worth examining The Denver Nuggets to me is another team this worth examining it playing now the kept Portas getting busy Michael Quarters Game Fizzy. Getting busy. Busy I. Mean. He's been playing well in the bubble anybody not named Devon Booker. In the bubble Michael, porta-john there hasn't been get busy I funny story Allow Mike. reporters.

I've ever had to get dressed for. Because usually I'm like chill and stop, but I'm like looking at your pictures and stuff and like Oh. This man has his style game every single time. T shirt on a Saturday. You've got me beat. Too. Funny, I'm so excited to have you where we get things. Started I always love asking my guests I. How are you doing? How are you holding up just with all? That's going on currently in the world right now. Honestly, that's a week all of this week. And just Kinda just recharge because ever since the pandemic is head, I just been like to. I, was motivation to keep going. From the door. So by obviously. I'm I'm rusted. That's a week off. And you came here. Why thank you for joining me I'm glad you okay, but like you said I think this is the one week I'm usually high energy as you can see. But I had to take a little break. Because just emotionally I felt it. Rains I found myself just at random times. Just emotional I've cried this week. I've been angry this week in frustrated, but then I've also smiled summit just seeing some of the unity. That's kind of starting to come together like it was a week of many emotions, but we made it. We made it the Saturday Mama. We made it. When I look at just was going on in the world now I think people are hurtful. What I find to be interesting is I think all this has been going on. As this is the one time that others saul where we were coming from more universally than others. Times rather rather and. While, we seek to be acknowledged some and some validated. We can't lose sight of what were really You know what the what the grind is. The fight is what the what the focus is. One of the things that I find interesting particularly in escape this latest I think many people are more are paying attention more because the pandemic is going on which forces people to pay attention to what's going on where in other townspeople people kind of gloss over. Is I think I'm advocate gum? The fight that we fight is a fight that that's worth fighting, but at the same time I think we're tired. We are we are really have set the slide on every shot then on this week sick and tired of being sick entire. Conversation that you're going to have to is important because we both come from different backgrounds grew up in different places, but something. We haven't colors this wonderful Melanin. That's on our skin. And it's great i. mean you come from the black? Male perspective, comfort black female perspective and again, even though we have in common, we have this very different stories, but I'm glad the attention. Is there my only? Hey, I'll be with you. Brandon I hate it takes something so tragic and so drastic every time in history. Not even just now it seems like for us to come together, but the biggest thing coming out of this. We need this to continue. I'll be honest. I've had white co workers checking on me more this week than I've ever had before white humor in. But keep this up like we need this energy and I think for once AC, what it feels like to be us, even though never fully not like. I'll never know what it is to be. A white woman just won't, but at the same time it's it's we want you to understand because this has been going on system out of racism has been a part of his country even before you were born. That's what this country unfortunately was built. All we know the history of slavery and things. We see what's happening in DC. It was a beautiful. Let me tell you to wake up and see that black lives matter there. Because d say You know was once chocolate city. Year but important. It's important so I appreciate you. Bring attention at you.

What role has sports played and the current climate that we're living in will the willing I can say about sports was his all his surface that distraction from what was going on in the world. You're finding now with sports is forces. You're finding that Bill Russell. Lee. L career bar activist role as being played and I think that when you look at the National Basketball Association for example I think they've always been on the forefront of. Guys speaking up like I. Always use the analogy. My basketball players alike wrappers in comparison to football players because when you look at. Basketball they don't wear masks or they don't wear helmets right? You see their. Football, you may know Bj you may know Eli Manning. Agrees. But when you look at situations with basketball, you know that the usual suspects up of. dwayne a Carmelo Anthony.

I, tell you man when you go when you dig back and look at the archives, or who played who was in that decade, man, a whole bunch of hall of famers and World Champions and all stars. It was a lot man like I. Say I'm a nineties fan, but that two hasn't roster. Man Can condemned compete with the ninety so. We'll start from there. Man would when people mentioned two thousands.

Baggy shorts. Iverson retro sneakers. Chris Webber and the Sacramento Kings yes. Wow and. proudly. Just Kobe Shack in the Lakers.

"Expand your knowledge and challenge your beliefs. And I'm not talking about changing what you believe about. God. I'm not talking about changing what you believe theologically. I'm talking more about those limiting beliefs that hold us back. So those of us who struggle with the scarcity mindset, or we struggle with fear, or we share it with ourselves a lot of self defeating thoughts. We we believe in repeat and rehearse lies. And limitations about ourselves. I'll never be good at that. I'll never be able to do that. I'll never be as cool as that guy. I'll never be as as great of a leaders him or her those are the kinds of beliefs that shape, our actions that we need to challenge gay because out of our beliefs we act out of our actions come the habits that shape our lives and our destinies K so challenge. Believes ask yourself. What am I believing? That is limiting me and holding me back. Sometimes my limiting beliefs are the lid on my leadership, and I need to punch through those and knock them down with some big truth in order to go on further. So challenge your beliefs Kay. In fact, I'm going to spend a whole episode on this very soon just on the limiting beliefs that that kill us that hold us back as as leaders. Here's a third thing. So expand your knowledge challenger believes. Here's expand your network. Expand your network in other words, you can today you can change the level the capacity of your leadership by meeting new people by networking with people that you don't yet know people from whom you can learn people to whom you can contribute people who will make your life better. The more people. I connect with the better. I'm I've been so excited to meet some of the people I've met just on. The last few weeks who've walked through the doors of our church people who also lead within ministry within business. I'm in a mastermind group every every Tuesday, we get together and talk about entrepreneurship, and and we're all believers, so we're talking about from that perspective. You got to expand your network now. I don't want you to think about this in the old fashioned terms of go joined the chamber of commerce and hand out your business card and try to get business. That's fine. If the kind of business you're in requires that, but I'm not talking about that. I'm not talking about expanding your potential leads list in terms of networking for sales on networking for growth. And there's a big difference. You should eat. In fact, I would even say that you'll do better at networking for sales. If you don't go in looking to sell anything, but if you just go in looking to benefit from people and to benefit people, so if you're just going to give and to learn from other people than that's the kind of networking I'm talking about. And I am a product of the people who've poured themselves into me. So my capacity has been expanded by the people in my life. That have led me that have helped me that have been friendly to me that I've been friends with and so I could rattle off a list real quick. And the people who've influenced me the most, and they're people that I've networked with and they're people that have expanded my leadership capacity K, here's the fourth one, and it's kind of related, but it's a category unto itself. Get a coach I believe so strongly in coaching. I have been coached for years now spent the last eight years ever since we started grace hills church. There's not been a single major decision that I have not talked about with a coach I've not run it by somebody who's been there or somebody that can help me think and sort it out and get organized. And so I'm a big believer. In this coaching to me is not just it's not the same as taking. A course is not the same as hiring someone to teach me stuff. I can learn stuff other places. What I need someone sometimes is someone who will get involved in my situation. Mentally and relational who will help me think through my dreams, and visions the challenges on facing the strategies, I need to overcome those challenges, and then we'll hold me accountable to take action on those strategies. That's what a coach does. That's what I do when I coach people. So if you're in ministry or business, and you're looking for that kind of coaching with love for you to to reach out to me and go to Brandon, Cox dot com slash coaching and watch a little video there about the Cana coaching. I do fell application, and we'll get to talking about it. But you need a coach somewhere, and you always to be coached. And as you grow and your capacity expands, and you lead more people, and you become more effective. I would say you you may need to consider coaching others as well mentoring others as well. So get a coach interestingly enough. Every single person that I learned from that is either a pastor who has done really well leading the church or a CEO or a entrepreneur or business person who has done really well almost universally. They get coaching, and this includes people at the top of organizations, they're people that are CEO's of fortune five hundred companies that get coaching and a lot of us would go. What are they have to learn from someone else? It's not about that. It's about needing another voice. Another perspective someone else to speak into my life into your life about the direction. We're going the strategies we need in the steps we need to take in order to get there. That's what a coach does. So you can today take action on this. You can change this, and you can expand your capacity to lead by inviting a coach into your life to begin to speak into where you are K. Here's the last thing. This is the biggest one you need to take. Make smart risks. So expand your knowledge challenged your beliefs. Expand your network get a coach and take smart risks. Another words, you will only grow as a leader in your capacity as you stretch yourself as you decide I'm going to step outside of my comfort zone. And I'm gonna try things that I'm not used to trying things that seem a little bit scary to me. Now when I say smart risks. I'm using that phrase together on purpose. I don't believe you need to take dumb risks. Another words, I'm not challenging you to run out. And just, you know, flippantly quit your job and launch your dream and not have any education plan or backup. I I don't think that's a worthy kind of risk. I think that sometimes we feel brave and we take a risk, but we didn't do our research. And so the risk is way too much cost and very little guarantee of success. So I'm not talking about that kind of risk. What I mean by? Risk is there is something that I need to do outside of my comfort zone. That's going to cost me my comfort. It might cost me money. It might cost me time. It might cost me convenience. But it's going to cost me something. So so that's the risk. I'm giving up the security of something. I'm giving up the significance of something. I'm giving up something valuable to me in exchange for something more valuable, and that doesn't mean that everything's going to be a guarantee if it's a guarantee it's not a risk at all. But it needs to be a smart risk. It needs to be the kind of risks that I've sort of measured and calculated that I've kind of totaled up and said, yes, this is the kind of risk that I want to take because it'll stretch me as a leader. So that might mean. If you're in a position to hire someone sometimes you take a smart risk when you hire someone that's just outside of your own comfort zone. But you feel like they're going to do. Awesome job for the organization. A smart risk might be enrolling in a course, or in school or getting more education getting more training. A smart risk might be signing up for a program. I have spent sometimes thousands of dollars on educational programs not counting college. This is just a professional training opportunities that I've spent thousands of dollars on and many times they pay off most of the time. When I invest in them, they wind up changing the game for me. They give me knowledge of in have before challenge me. And that's a smart risk that you've got to step out and go places and try things and tweak the business model and try things that you couldn't do before. You've got in your head have kind of an RND department, a research and development laboratory in your mind in which you try. Things that you haven't tried yet. And those things are going to be outside your comfort zone, but success lies beyond them. The blessing the abundance the fullness lies beyond the things that you need to take risks in again, not stupid risks. Not risks that cost you everything in provide you, nothing and destroy everything. But risks in which you have done your research, you've prepared. Well, you've done your praying. You're thinking you're meditating, you're planning you have sought advice, you've listened to testimonials you have checked this out. And in those cases, you take the smart necessary risks in order to expand your capacity. K now here's the beautiful thing about this when your capacity as a leader expands your organization will probably grow. Now. I don't know. I can't guarantee this going to grow in sales or that it's going to grow in the number of people attending those are not things I can guarantee, but I can get. Parenti that it's going to become healthier. It's going to be stretched that the people around you that you lied that you influence they are going to grow, and they are going to be stretched, and that's only gonna occur as you continue to challenge yourself to expand your own leadership capacity. Keep pushing the limits read one more book, take one more step design one more strategy reach out to one more person give something else away put little more skin in the game. Take a little more risk because every time you do the people that you are responsible for grow as well. And I'm convinced that when leaders grow in general when you and I and all of us as leaders who who are leading in worthy pursuits that when we grow our pursuits grow our organizations, grow the the people that we lead grow, and we all get better. It's just like Craig Rochelle says when the leader. Gets better everybody wins. And so I just want to challenge you to expand your knowledge your friendships challenged your beliefs get a coach and take some smart risk. So that you can change your leadership capacity today. If you stay exactly as you are right now, you'll always get the results you're currently getting. So if you want something different if you want something more, if you want something that is beyond what you currently have what you currently enjoy only way to do that is to push yourself and stretch and begin to purposely create change that that stretches in grows us a leader. Let's expand our leadership capacity together. Now, real quick. I want to mention something about this this video or audio whichever one you're listening to or the transcript that you reading. I really would love for this to encourage more people. I have a heart and a desire and vision that that I want to encourage. Dj more and more leaders.

"brandon" Discussed on Digital Leadership with Brandon Cox
"Off. Hello and welcome to digital leadership with Brandon Cox. That's me. And this is the space where I get to talk about life leadership and even sometimes some digital marketing. I want this demeaning, courage, meant to you. I have a vision to grow leaders to help leaders to grow for all of us to expand our influence together. Because I've Aleve that the world is a much better place when we do. So I want to dive into something today that has been very personal me over the last few years. And that is I wanna talk about expanding your leadership capacity to expand the capacity for how much you can handle as leader for the level of influence for the size of the organization for the the kind of impact that you want to have. I want us to talk about expanding all of that. How do I grow in terms of my ability to influence people? How do I grow in my ability to lead a larger organization growing or? How do I help the people around me to grow? John Maxwell often talks about the law of the lid. He wrote about in a couple of his books and the law of the lid, basically states that the level of an organization will never excel beyond the level of its primary leader, and then there's some other ramifications of it that whatever spot you lead from whatever your lid is. You'll always struggle to lead other people beyond it. So leadership is all about growing other people. It's all about developing people, right? It's lifting and raising people. It's developing other people to their potential leadership is not about you being the rockstar leadership is about you pouring into others developing others, inspiring others, giving others a track to grow on. And you are a lid for your organization your lid for yourself. You're live for the people that you. Lead. That's true of every last one of us. Another words if I'm leading at a seven I will never be able to take people beyond a five or six I'll always kind of keep people back behind where ama- little bit Jesus was a tin. He took the disciples as far as anyone could ever take anyone because he's just the master leader. But all of us are somewhere below that. We all found ourselves different places at different levels. The question is how do I lift the lid, how do I change my capacity? How do I grow in my ability to influence other people over the last eight years of experience this at grace hills church? We started Grace's about seven and a half years ago. And every time we cross a new milestone every time we enter a new season or a new era or something happens that significantly positive. I'm always faced with the question. Am I going to be able to lead us further? Am I going to be able to take us on from here? To the next level to the next place to the next goal. And you've probably face that as well. I think the answer that question can be. Yes, if we're willing to expand our capacity, if we're willing to grow as leaders, if we're willing to put ourselves in the position of expanding and growing and our ability to lead. No, I want to dig into how that happens. How it is. That you expand your capacity. How it is that you lift the lid on your own leadership. And I'm gonna make a statement here. That's kind of key to all of it to lift the lid and expand your capacity, you must embrace and create change in your life. You must embrace and create change in your life. That's also true organizationally. If you want your organization, your church, you business your ministry to grow. You're gonna have to change things in order to expand the capacity just as. When you have to build a larger building when you have to expand two more locations when you need more infrastructure when you've got gotta move to new software. We have to be able to to grow beyond in in terms of making change happen around us and change is almost always difficult. It's almost always painful, but the fact is growth is change by nature. If you're not willing to change you'll never grow because growth is changed things that change over time grow and not all change is growth, but all growth is change. So if you wanna lift your live, if you want to expand your leadership capacity, you gotta change some things you gotta become the catalyst change in your life. You have to instigate change. And if you're the leader at the top of an organization, if you're the senior pastor, the senior leader, you're the CEO you have to instigate change you have to be the one to make the ripples to make change happen. Doesn't. And you'll be the only one, but you've got to be willing to go first. So let's kind of talk for a minute about the kinds of changes that can and cannot be made in your life, and your leadership in your in your organization, we need to acknowledge it some change cannot be made it all. In other words, you might say today, I could lead better I could lead at a higher level if I had blank, and he kind of fill in the blank with something that is not possible for you to create if I had a different leader over me if I worked for a different business. If I if I had a ton of money, if I whatever the case might be your your sort of filling in that blank with I could lead better if and what goes after if is something that you can't control you you've got to come to peace with those things and find a creative way around them. There's certain things you're not gonna be able to change. You're not gonna be able to control you can't lift certain lids around you. It's the reason why some people wind up changing organizations they wind up going. Somewhere else to work or starting a new business or whatever because they've hit a spot where they can't change what's above them. What's around them? And so you need to acknowledge you can't change everything. And some things are just never going to have control over. And then there's a category of things that you can change, but they have to be changed slowly have to be changed over time. So you might say I want to be wealthy. You know, if I just had a bunch of money about a million dollars to make Akkad really do good for the world. The problem is if you're earning fifty thousand dollars a year now, and you've got twenty thousand dollars in savings. You're a long ways from a million. You can't get that overnight. You you've got to commit to the long term game. You've got to have the patience to to let those things develop over time. Now, you can make incremental changes now, but there are certain things that can only change over long periods of time. What I want to dig into today in this episode. However is what are the things? I. Can change today. What are the decisions I can make right now that expand my capacity as a leader starting in this moment. And I wanna give you five K five ways to change yourself five ways to challenge yourself five ways that you can grow and expand your leadership capacity that make a difference longterm. These changed the game for you and your organization, and the people that you lead over the long haul case. So here they are rapid fire. One after another the first one is today. You can expand your knowledge today. You can expand your knowledge the bottom line is I've never seen a leader excel to greatness or lead an organization to greatness or make a significant impact on the world who was completely self absorbed every leader, I know that's ever been affective was a learner. And a listener they read things they listen to things they took things in. And so a lot of times I come across some. One is how can I make my life better? And I'll say something like well, have you checked out this book, I'm not really a reader, and so often I just want to sort of level this truth become a reader become a reader. I wasn't always a reader. You. Don't think you're a reader, but you gotta give it a shot because without reading you're missing out on so much knowledge. But even if we're not talking about sitting down and flipping open a book and reading page after page, there are other ways to to learn to take in that you can take advantage of today. The the big point is Houston to be feeding your mind with something that's not up there yet. And so you can expand your knowledge by listening to podcasts. K expand your knowledge by subscribing to YouTube channels expand your knowledge by taking an online course expand your knowledge by exposing yourself to information that you haven't had before. And I wanna especially say, what is in rich my life, deeply and expand. Did my own capacity for leadership is to always look for sources of knowledge that are written and created by people who sort of our head of me in my particular field of interest and passion. So if I want to know how to lead a church better. I need to read books by other pastures who have led churches and are now sharing knowledge, I need to read that I wanna read people who have done really well in business people who've done really well in their lives. I wanna read people that challenge my mind in terms of how I think about people and relationships so here lately, I've been reading a books by dean Grozny, OSI, Napoleon hill Bernabei Brown. John Maxwell, Robert Schuler read books by people that I don't necessarily agree with all the way. And it's funny. How when I mentioned an author's name some listeners go he reads him. I can't believe he does that. But the fact is you need to be willing to read things written by people that are just. Outside of your comfort zone that they don't necessarily line up perfectly with your exact perspective because then you get the small world view. So you can expand your knowledge today. In fact, I wanna give you a tip for that. I think you should go to YouTube and find the shows and the channels that are produced by people that you tend to learn from just a little while ago. I was listening to a YouTube show by Ed my let you can go look him up. He's phenomenal. He's a tremendous motivator and leader business guy, and Ed was sharing things that inspired me that made me think about life in ways I hadn't thought about before. So I just watches YouTube videos. They're compelling easy to watch their entertaining, very educational. So expand your knowledge if you don't expand your knowledge, you're done if you stopped listening and stop reading and stopped. Feeding your mind you're at the limit your the limits of you want to. Spain your capacity you've got expand your knowledge K. Here's a second thing challenge. Your beliefs challenge, your belief, so expand
"brandon" Discussed on Digital Leadership with Brandon Cox
"It's gonna be all about financial freedom and work free. Adam and life freedom. So I really believe my purpose is to help people find freedom, and I do that in in a variety of ways. K it helps me to enjoy what I'm doing more. When I realized the things in my life with my purposes now couple of practical little things that are come out of that. When you re aligned with your purposes redefine what they are. And start to realign your life with your purposes, I think you're gonna have to refocus, and we'd some things out to get rid of some things. There's a lot of power and saying no, and one of the factors that leads to burn out. Sometimes we just we don't like say no to people. So we say yes to everything now at its root and core our unwillingness to say, no Alta comes out of trying to find our identity in the affirmation of people. So if I say, yes to them, the la- firm me, the lightning, they'll appreciate me. And so I got to get over that. I I gotta stop fearing people and stop worrying about their. Level of got it instead served people out of my purpose. But not feel obligated to commit to serving people in ways that don't align with my purpose to be able to say no to some things, and we'd some things out also have to learn to delegate and to trust. If you're in leadership delegation is key. And I don't even like the word delegation like the word empowering that I need to empower others. Giving example of how this worked in my own and my own church my own leadership. I wrote a book about how the church social media. So so that's a big area for me. So letting go of our churches social media was a huge challenge for me took me a long time to come to grips with I need to let someone else kinda manage this. But I did I entrusted. Martha she's on our church staff and Martha ran with our church communications. She does a phenomenal job with social me a better than I would have. Done better than I would be doing. She made. It manages it consistently and gives our church, great voice on social media. So what I found was that. I was afraid to let it go. Because if I don't control it it won't be great. Well, that's a lie. That's a lie, and I was afraid to let go because if I'm not in control of it than I feel out of control. But the fact is by giving it away I got to empower someone else who now gets a lot of fulfillment from it does a great job with it. And so you've got to begin to release things to say, no to things to realizing with your purposes. So sit down after this podcast, sit down and take some time alone to write out a sentence describes what's your life all about what are you gifted to do? What do you call to do? Not just your job. Not just your vocation. I'm talking about as you live through life. What is your shape? What? Is your identity? What are you here to do? Mine is to help people find freedom. What is yours? How has got wire? Jew to serve other people to impact the world. What do you do with all of that? So that's how you recover from burnout. And that's also how you prevent burnout. If you are spending adequate time alone adequate time with people, and you're constantly reaffirming your purposes, you know, you're you're making those declarations that that. We've we've talked about previously talk shared them at the end of the last episodes. If you missed that go back, and listen, especially the last few minutes talk about these declarations that I make every day that remind me who I am who got his how I fit into his plan all of that go back and do those things take some time alone to reaffirm your purpose, and align your life with it K. So another words, I don't think it's about balance. I don't think it's about priorities. I don't even think it's about time management specifically it is about making sure that your day. Your relationships. Your your activities are aligned with guides purpose for your life. And let me just close with a personal word of encouragement. I want you to hear this message loud and clear as we come to draw the close of this first of all you are needed like the world needs. You your people need you the people around you need you. And so if you're if you're place a burnout where you just think I'm just not doing anybody any good. You're wrong. That's a lie. It's a live from the pit hell you are needed. Secondly, you are loved God loves you, your people love you. You are loved in. You got fall back on that. When you feel burn out coming on. You know, you are loved and also you can make a difference. You can do this. Like you have in you what it takes to make an impact on the world. That when you align with your purpose when you discover your purpose, and you start living that outing start serving others and giving giving your life away to others in a way that aligns with your purpose. You're gonna make a difference. You're gonna make an impact you've got a message for people. And I'm glad that you're listening to this all the way to the end to hear you can make a difference one. Last thing if you're not in tune with your purpose. And you don't know what life is all about. You're not sure what the purpose of life is. Or why you're in this thing feel free to reach out to me. Just go to Brandon Cox dot com, click on the contact button and shoot me a note. All right would love to hear from you hope you'll tune in next time, I'm gonna talk a little bit more about leadership and some of the things that that get in the way actually next time. We're gonna dive a little deep talk some mental health issues depression, anxiety shoes. So. Come back and share this with somebody else along the way can't wait to to hang out with you again.

"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

"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
