So that i don't like. I don't wanna even give you any advice. I want to talk about how you pivoted into skin. Care because covey looks amazing. And i just want to hear how it started and like how what the evolution has been like yeah so we've started covey any myself and my business partner who's also my best friend but it started because basically i had a love for beauty love sharing my routines on the internet. I would buy all the products that were ever recommended to me. But it turned out that i was using too many products. I found skincare. Totally over complicated and confusing and my skin just was not looking great. I wanted to kind of simplify it but had no idea where to start. A business partner was the exact same and then we started doing a lot of research. We went through comments on my social media platforms on youtube and on instagram. We went on skin-care addiction on read it. We were on twitter. Looking through people's conversations we realized people had three key questions around skin-care which were like what products do actually need routine out. Do i use them. And what order. Am i supposed to be using them in and do these products work together. Those questions we found like kept popping up in these conversations on my social in these kind of skin-care communities. We realize that we were not alone. So we partnered with dr. Julia ru sak in new york and she helped us come up with this three step system and we just wanted to create simple effective routine that worked together and religious. Simplify skin care.
What Is a Universal Skincare Routine?
"What is a universal skin carotene. And how did you formulate a routine that can work for anyone skin so in order for it to work for anyone skin it just came down to doing it of research and a ton of testing so for each of covey's products we actually had twelve different iterations of each product meaning like we are testing formulating and then testing the products. On over one hundred fifty different people with different skin types ages backgrounds ethnicities to figure out what was working what was not so. It took a ton of time and energy to get that feedback in all of those different iterations. I remember like by business partner. And i would get a ton of samples in and then we would put them in little packets with the survey and we would have to harass people for every single iterations in twelve different times time. One hundred fifty people each time so it took so much time and effort and i would just say like please. Just write it down. Send me a picture like even attacks. Here's my phone number like whatever it takes. So i think the amount of testing that we did really got us to a point that we knew that it works on all these different people all different skin types. We also made sure that we were formulating really really gentle ingredients which that was really helpful. We had our partner dermatologist. Doctor julia sack and she helped us. Identify like what those ingredients word that we knew they were going to be like very well suited for sensitive skin. Did you ever struggle with any skin issues or did you always have perfect skin lake for me. I know i had just trial and error like a billion different things before. I found my perfect team because i have the dry skin of all time. Yes i definitely struggled kind of like in a different way because as a model i always like took such great care of my skin. It was so important for me. But i kind of came from the school of thought that more was more right. Which was wearing covey kind of came into play so i was using every ingredient every active anything anyone recommended to me i was just like added into the routine. I had like twelve or thirteen. Step routine going on. But i would come to work and i you know i primarily do a ton of beauty works face of me blamed for ten years like my skin was everything for me so it's just like the more active than the more stuff i put on at the better. Then i'll go to work and my skin was literally like falling off. It would be read super dry. We're always like any like what did you do last night like well. I did this like right now treatment. And then i did a mask and i did this and then my skin was just totally freaking out. Every time i went to work for a big job. And i just realized that i was doing way too much but at the same time i didn't know what steps that i actually need in my skin care routine. I also have a youtube channel. And i was always sharing by routines and what i love to us and i did this video with harper's bazaar their famous yet unready with me and i had one of these kind of like a ha moments. I shared my routine. It was all over the place at a million products like all the steps. Were just jumbled in all over the place and the comments action people were tearing me apart they were like. This routine is so wack. You're not supposed to combine those ingredients as way too many steps doesn't you know you can't be combining those products and i was like i'm a model. I have access to all these experts. But no i really don't know what products i need in my routine. I don't know if they work together in. I don't know what order they're supposed to be in which is where covey kinda came into the world. I started doing a ton of research. Social listening partnering. With dr julie grew sack a business partner and i went through over five hundred thousand reviews of top selling products in different stores. We really did a lot kind of get to the point but we knew we wanted this super gentle effective compatible routine that would work for all people in all skin types and kind of take the guesswork out of routines you cannot grape skin. We are not crushing it with a million products. You don't really meet.
Section 230: The Law That Made It Possible for Facebook and Twitter to Thrive
"Thing that actually made it possible for companies like facebook or twitter or youtube to exist and grow with something called section two thirty of the communications decency act which was passed into law in nineteen ninety six so what problem was section to thirty designed to fix the reasons extra to thirty even came to be was because they were to lower court decisions that held two opposite things k. One involved in old online platform called. Compuserve compuserve combines the power of your computer with the convenience of your telephone to bring you hundreds of online services like a complete set of encyclopedias for those of you who don't remember the nineteen nineties. Compuserve was one of the earliest internet service providers. It also hosted several online forms as well as the third party. Newsletter called rumor ville so in nineteen ninety. Rumor ville published some disparaging remarks about arrival newsletter. And this is perfect called scuttle but which was owned by cubby inc. In addition to suing rumor ville cubby also sued compuserve alleging that as publisher compuserve was also liable for the statements of its authors and the court in the compuserve case called covey versus compuserve. Said that a third party post on compuserve did not make copies reliable So in other words because compuserve didn't moderate content on its platform it could not be sued for libel that is since compuserve was merely a distributor of defamatory statements. It wasn't responsible got it. So what was the other case. And the other involved. Old online platform called prodigy named the case was stratton oakmont versus prodigy. Stratton oakmont as some listeners. May recall was the subject of the martin. Scorsese film wolf of wall street. Where leonardo dicaprio played straightens pill-popping ceo jordan belfort. I've been richmond. And i have been a poor man was rich but on my compuserve perje was held liable because it had taken a small editorial role in deciding what content got on its platform or not so it was these two decisions that were completely at odds with each other that caused two members of congress then representative christopher cox from california and then representative now. Senator ron wyden from oregon to say. Look if we're going to have an internet that flourishes where everybody can speak we need to fix this.
What's The Real Tea on Celebrity Beauty Brands?
"I think it's time to dive into our topic of the day and it's all about the real behind the latest celebrity brands that have come to light in the last year and i feel like in the last six months. It's been like every other day. You're seeing a celebrity step to get their piece of the beauty pie so in the last month even we've had covey skin debut in. That's from that model emily. Dj auto Haven't tried that yet. Gene are just confirmed to wall street journal Yesterday that she has a skincare line coming. Hebrews filed the trademark for road. It goes on and on and on fantasy harris dropping soon if the internet is to be believed and yesterday kris jenner and chrissy teigen launched a whole personal care home line of cleaning products. So it just doesn't stop so Why do you think this deluge of launches his happening right now. We would discuss day because we feel like celebrity brands was such a huge thing years ago when they will launching fragrances right and every snaps had a fragrance so like the thing to do and just kind of went silent i think with the rise of influences and influence a marketing and i guess people feel like they can trust influences. Moreover celebrities and mike percy kind of celebrities want a taste of that now they want to put the names backout. They still want to be the authority on beauty in general. I guess so. I think as far as skincare goes it seems such a surge in popularity especially over the last year of locked down and people wanting to expand with skin moon. I felt like everyone was of the pie.

"Scenes from wuhan in china and the tesha mitchell joining you for science fiction. Welcome videos emerge on social media of authorities using increasingly drastic measures. I remember when this chilling footage i vs four corners program last february. A woman in a pink tracksuit is being dragged kicking and screaming from an apartment block by police in black suits. And what now. Six back then a bit over twelve months ago. It was hard to believe this heavy handed response to a virus. We knew almost nothing about around.

Pride Leadership with Dr. Steve Yacovelli
"Is the secret of great leadership engagement as part of that or not but will it and it's a great question. it's funny. I've had a gentleman asked me when i launched my latest book. Pride leadership last summer. Not this past one. But the one pre code i i'd say and the germans said what's the secret leadership i said. There is one really like yes. There is as an if you if you take my three hundred sixty five page book. Boil it down to one page with one word. The key secret to is trust. So if i'm a good leader. And i can foster trust within my team and team doesn't have to be direct reports. It can be those around me. My bosses my clients. Whoever that is if you foster trust your gold. So i said know one word on one page. That's the secret to leadership but police buy my book. Anyway i'm sure there's lots more golden. Well actually since you brought it up. Why don't we. Why don't we go there and tell me a little bit more about the book. Yeah so like. I said technically my third book i with a real publisher which has been exciting different process. But i've been in love in the leadership and diversity inclusion space pretty much my whole career. You said i did. It was it disney. Ibm for a while as internal people who kind of went out on my own in two thousand eight as a full-time gig and worked with some awesome clients but you start to see leaders and leadership pattern for those who are just like rock and roll and be an awesome leaders and the ones who are crashing and burning and not doing so well the little qualitative research nerd in me was kind of just observing and all this stuff gathering that data if you will and then. I'm at a conference a couple years ago and sorting business cards go before session. This woman's next we actually doing the same thing and she's like what do you do. And i said well you diversity change management will. I said how about you. She's like. I'm a publisher mike. You know what. There's a book in my head that needs to come out. She's like let's get that book out. And so jen became was your and it really just got me starting to think about you. Putting these observations that had over the course of my career down in into play. Since i started. Kind of mapping that and then you know not not long after that. I started looking at some of the leaders around me i do a lot of work advocacy work of volunteer work especially for the lgbtq community as well as others just kind of helping foster equity and justice for the quote unquote others in the world. I through the lens because leadership is top of mind. I'm started watching these leaders. Do what it is they do especially the successful ones. And then if you remember that. Tv show from from back when sex in the city always computer. She's like. I couldn't help but wonder and i actually kind of popped in my head. I couldn't have put wonder if as an lgbtq blue person you have an opportunity to exercise leadership differently or in an in a unique way then our street brothers and sisters for example out of the story some competencies i wanted to play with. I would've down to six in this holding up my mouse pad which just happens it here. It's branded with license competencies. So they're authentic authenticity. Courage empathy communication relationships and culture. And so let's talk about empathy for a second. If i'm out gay man in the workplace when we could work that's leading very authentically in a different way. That may be my straight brothers and sisters are doing so. I'm not saying that. Gay leaders are better than others. But i write it. Probably lucia that. There's an opportunity for people to Maybe exercised those those leadership comedies. That everybody really should be focusing. Their energy on the basis of leadership allies. Love it to trust me. I have had that feedback along So it's not just for gays anymore. But it's really went through the looking at these six competencies through that specific. Yeah i think that's great and it really just makes sense because because yeah you have people who are Who fall fall in one of those communities. They really have had challenges. I think in particular i mean. Just you know personally. I mean it's i mean we've seen it earlier this year with the black lives matter movement and and so when you've got sort of you know couple strikes against you you've got to learn how to be able to maneuver in the business world or or your personal life and be able to find ways to have common ground which is something that we need so much of him so many aspects of her life frankly not just not just the business world as well but Well and which. I guess maybe maybe you can speak on. This is then how do i. I would thinking of people who've gone through unique challenges. Whatever it is and this can even be people who have Physical disabilities as well right that. How does one become. How do you kind of come up with fostering resilience especially when you're having to deal with maybe people who don't see either you or who just have a different way of you know just how how the world should work and your different and it's it's such a great question especially now one of the things that i also say is a key to leadership that and it's one of the skills that i don't feel that people leverage it enough is the concept of listening but it's not just you know it's stephen covey great leadership guru. It's listen to understand versus listen to respond and to far too often especially in western society in. Us society we tend to just listen to give our two sets and instead let let's. Let's do that active listening. Actually i talked about that in my my communication chapter is how can you. You could pull the fright of being empathetic through the action of being an effective and active listener. And so i think that's one of the ways that we can start to really see from different perspective. Especially if we're not really in in that frame of mind and i also i also acknowledged that one of the things that i really try to is my my soapbox if you will is is fostering leaders to be more consciously inclusive and so it really does mean getting in into my own head. I tried to reduce some of those those unconscious biases. And maybe maybe over by susanna might have. They're really work on myself. I and i kind of talk about that as i think. In methodology work on me first. And then i can start to what i call. Speak up on behalf of those around me and then really act out meeting look at the broader organization. We're talking we're plays or society. In general what are ways we can foster inclusivity and belonging for everyone and so it. Oh it's only the ultimately does start within my own
One year on: What have we learned about viruses since news of COVID-19
"Is a year since the world. Health organization declared a global pandemic and the world's began to adopt the lockdown status. That we are now so familiar with and according to the. Who also face the prospect of the pandemic staying with us until at least the start of next year. So what have we learned or dr. chris. Smith is multiple twenty-first health and science correspondent and a regular voice on one twenty four. Good morning chris. Well i remember this time last year. We were having a very similar conversation about the world going into lockdown. And he said we've got a book on bird flame. We're having a meeting. I think we might be all right. How how things out for you. In what respect. Because i if you look at different aspects of of how my life has played out then busy would be the best definition. But but i have a career which is a media career and providing science and medical commentary on things like pandemics at the same time. I have a medical career. Which is vera gist. So it's a bit like someone took. Ill musk's big effing rocket and place like no one on each leg and just ignited the same time i appreciate i. I've been very busy and in some respects. It's been an exhilarating terrifying right for others. It's obviously been devastating in terminal respect as well as in a sort of economic respect. So i think everyone is fed very differently. But maybe that wasn't what you were asking. Well let's focus on the variety section of it there. Is this sense of trying to be prepared. I think there's a feeling that many people had this time last year that we didn't know what was around the corner but the everybody was doing their absolute utmost to make sure that they could be as ready as they could be. What was it that we learned about viruses and how to deal with them within in the last year. We'll know not the golden rule book for anything night this because every situation is different every viruses different. And we'd never had a situation like this. We'd had similar situations. We've had flu outbreaks before and we'd had saws marquand the ancestor. That came in two thousand eighteen. Two thousand and three off of saul's sauce covey too but we hadn't seen anything quite like this as a result the there is no golden rule. Book says when this happens. This is how you handed of course. Also every country's different every population is different than makeup of those countries is different the way in which people work how they live what they do as a country how they respond as country. The letter prepared misses. The country is different. The amount of travel that goes on between countries is different. So it's really tricky. When you've got that extremely heterogeneous makeup of the world which makes a great place. of course. it's very difficult to then say. Well this is how you control something because there is no evidence to fall back on apart from things they'll related but not the same and when you've got that difference and it's a fluid situation where it's always a moving target because as we might one step forward things change the then mean. The virus takes a step foot. We've seen that with the various example. It's been tricky all the while it's been a massive learning process at every stage to work out how we can best out this challenge and we are not there yet. I mean my my mistake. My biggest mistake. I think was anticipating that we would have solved this problem by now. I honestly thought that by now We we would have been on the road closer to home for
Increase your productivity with R.I.C.E
"Talked about this many many times the chaos of abundance and the trying to figure out which rich priorities to hunt out which things to do which tasks are more important. Which things are more urgent. We've talked about the stephen covey time matrix lots and lots of times. I've talked about this in references. So there is a decision making like a scoring method. That is out there. It's called the rice method Now to talk through each one of these acronym right and it stands for reach impact confidence an effort k now. What i'm going to talk about this in terms in inside the frame of decision making and goals and targets that you're chasing down right and there's a there's a a really great course that i'm in the guy. He he gives a lot more succinct view of it. And like a three to four minute type of synopsis. Obviously i'm not the guy in the course talking you so i'm going to do my best to kind of explain this to you a little more long winded -ly about really how this works right so our for reach right when you're thinking about a goal when you're thinking about target that you're hunting down whether even if it's a physical goal if it's a a racer trying to do or a Weightlifting circuit. You're trying to do or anything like that Or even if it's a business goal or a personal goal or weight loss or whatever the case might be right. The reach is in a lot of times us inside of marketing so instead of a marketing goal right. It's it's how how big is this gonna be. How how how much visibility can you get right but in terms of your goal setting area right. You're thinking about okay. When i achieve this goal. How far have i gone. Like how far have i reached how much how much have i propelled myself forward right. Because there's there's there's certain goals let's be honest. There's certain goals and targets that you and i pursue that when we actually achieve them we realized we set the bar too low right. And then there's sometimes we set that bar and we realized that we said it way too high because we were all gung ho. Yeah we're gonna we're gonna set the bar high. We're going to do awesome. And then you realize that it's completely out of reach okay. So this reach factor elect to think of in terms of my. Is it the right amount of reach. Is it just far enough of a reach for me. That you know when i actually achieve this target when i achieved this will like that's that's a good benchmark for me. That's a good milestone for me because it's allowing me to kind of live my life to do the things i wanna do but it's also challenging me in the right amount and not overwhelming me making me drink from a fire hose and regret that. I have made this decision right. So that's the are now. I is impact right now. This kind of goes hand in hand. I think in terms of goal setting again. I'm kind of adapting this from marketing perspectives. But the impact. I like to think of in terms of not only impact on my own life but the impact. I have on others right and i think this is particularly. I was going to say. It's particularly in every area but it's particularly applicable inside of business goals right or finance goals career goals right when you think of when i achieved this goal or when i hit this target or whatever it is you're chasing am i. Am i only doing this to be self serving or am i actually creating something of impact for other people or am i. In my leveling up the level of service. I gave her the level of business. I provide or the The the level of customer service have or is the product that i provide. Actually you know impacting more people able to reach more people in my able to impact more people's lives right because if if you start to see like You know just. Because i'm going back to the drawing board in. Revamping my website. This am i really going to impact a lot of people No not really. It's just going to be more of a self serving type of goal and there's nothing wrong with self-serving type of goals right. There's absolutely nothing wrong with those. They have their place in their their validity. Right but in terms of thinking about impact. You know you're you're thinking about okay. I want to reach people around me. I wanna reach like. When i think about this in terms of making apps that i make in the pot in even inside of this podcast like. What's the impact going to be on you the listener. What's the impact is going to be on the end user of the technology that i'm building i'm providing right and when you think when you think it through and that level that's like next level deep thought and that really gives you more clarity. Why you're doing what you're doing right. Move onto the third piece in that is see confidence in. This is pretty straightforward. This is the confidence that you have in yourself that you can actually chief this thing right do you have. What is your level of confidence. Do you have confidence that you can hit it in this kind of goes back to to reach part right like are you you kind of assessing this and being like i don't know like new. This this is this is really make him a button pucker. You know what i mean like. I'm i can't do this or are you like overconfident. Are you just like your should be able to achieve this quarterly goal in a week right. Then you need to do some some reassessing. You need to be like okay There's probably a reason overconfident. In this in. Maybe maybe that overconfidence will be prove to be Nobody no right. Maybe it'll be like. Oh wow. I was way too overconfident in my abilities or my resources or my ability. Actually get this done right But then you might go the other way and you might be like well on of any confidence that i can get this done right in in this when you look at it through this frame then you start to say well okay. Let's go back to to the reach in the impact of my really doing the right thing in my actually pursuing the right thing. Because if. I don't have any confidence that i can get it done. Yeah it might completely change my life in the lives of others inside of the reach and impact category. But if it's if. I have zero confidence. I can hit it. Why would i pursue that thing right like why i'm wasting my time. Mangum ahead against a wall. And i'm gonna be miserable in it's not gonna benefit anyone. Okay now the the last piece. The fourth piece is e for effort k. Now what level of effort like is this going to is. This can require sixteen hours a day of your extreme deep focused to achieve or is it going to be ten minutes a day. Is it going to be an hour a day. Is it going to be three times a week. Is it going to be just on the weekends. Right what level of effort. And i like to put resources in here as well. What level of effort and resources is actually going to require to pull off. And when you look at a goal or target through this frame you start to be like okay. I'm having some good reach like this is actually pushing me forward personally and professionally. Okay the the impact is also there. It's gonna be you know it's going to impact a lot of people. It's going to push things forward. It's going to actually provide some new things. I'm pretty confident. I can hit it. But it's also gonna take me ten hours a day that i can't dedicate to it also pull off and then it falls apart right so is this is a really crazy awesome framework that i really like to to think through in terms of all this because i hope you can see kind of how all these are interconnected right as you go through each one of them in you really take your goal your target or your your aim in life. Whatever it is. You're chasing her hunting and you put it through each one of these frames like filter it down to be a lot more clear in what you can do what you actually can hit and then you start to also get more clear on that. Why like all of these filter into that y right and it's it's amazing. I've started to do this inside of pretty much. All the different business goals that. I'm shooting for over the next two to three months. And i gotta tell you like it's a game changer. For me it really is because like i said it. Just it really frames your daily decision making on a whole different level because once you have this okay. I know. I'm reaching for something that is within my grasp but also challenging me. I know that the impact that it's creating is going to be enough impact that i'm comfortable with making but also not just like doing it just for me. I'm pretty confident. You should be at least over fifty percent confident that you can hit this goal right. You don't wanna be down in like ten twenty percent range but you don't wanna be like you know ninety ninety five percent range like yeah if you're up there that's great but you're also probably not challenging enough. You're not reaching far enough right and see how the reach. The confidence are kind of interconnected and the effort is is another thing that a lot of people don't consider in in this kind of threw me off a lot when i started when i first started going down this path and rely when i really sat down and was like okay to to achieve this thing that i wanna do in business or to pull out like when i started pulling off the the run your day apple. I completely underestimated the amount of effort. That was going to go into it like it ended up being something that yeah like. The impact was there. The reach was there. The confidence was there and then the effort. I completely underestimated. But i didn't put that through this type of framework. So i didn't. I wasn't doing this at that time right. And if i would've known out been like okay you know. There's a lot more effort involved in this. So therefore my confidence score goes down but the impact also goes up in the region goes a little bit
How to Grow Your Business by Replacing Yourself
"Today we're gonna have a little bit of a conversation about Taking things to the next level right so if any of you have experienced a something just some level of growth inside of your personal life or career or business you start to realize you get to this point that you can't do it all right like there's there's a million different things going on every single day whether you're a manager at you know where you work or ura you're actually business owner or you run a family with five different kids or you run a local group or a team or anything like that. Like there's there's a nine jillian different things you have going on at all points of the day the week the month year like planning things like it's just it's it's too much it's a lot right and the thing to remember. Is that whether you have your own small business or a job or your oprah winfrey or whoever the hell you are you have the same amount of time as i do like. We all have one hundred and sixty eight hours in a week. Like bill gates the president. Like the bump down the street like we all have the same amount of time right. So how is it that we all like. There's certain people that achieve that seemed to achieve so much more like you're just standing there and all of them like how do you get so much done right. And then there's people that are just seemed to be in the same position day after day week after week year after year and just like just kind of tread water like how right you know you know probably different people along the spectrum but there's there's ways there's just so many different examples i can think of that. There's it's it's you can either go down this path of super productivity and be burn out as hell or you can go down this path of not doing anything and hating your life right. But there's a third option that not a lot of people think of and there's this option of actually doing the productive ineffective things well not burning out while not actually making yourself feel more stress and anxiety while actually living a happier in. I don't wanna say carefree life but just a less stressful existence right and that's kind of where the title of this show comes in into this concept in this procedure of finding ways to replace yourself right finding ways to systematize yourself. Now there are many of you have a business or you have a high level job or whatever it might be like. You're familiar with system. You're familiar with the processes in place that needs be consistent to achieve a similar outcome for every person every time every time a sale comes through every time a fulfilment task needs handled like whatever the case might be. But have you ever stop to think about how you can make that happen in your own life in your day to day existence. Right i was actually. I've been reading a book For the second time again called high-performance habits by brennan bouchart. highly highly. recommend this book It's it's a life changing book and we got it for like seven bucks on like it was super cheap to But burnham short. He's he's like man he's the personal development guru. He's like i would love to have him on the show one day. If you ever listen to this brendan like hit me up. Let let's make this happen. It'd be it'd be awesome But just to kind of synthesize. What kind of taking away. From that. As i go through the second time. Is this idea that you as a person or a system right you as a being not only inside of your Physical being but inside of your business inside of your career inside of your relationships right like the more you can become a system and become consistent. The better things are going to get for you right now. When we take this conversation. I really want to apply it into production inside of business careers making money that type of conversation right because one one thing i noticed I went through my journey right with building the the runway wage app with building. The run. your day podcast here with building. Run your day app with with doing other client apps for other people in clients that i brought on in my in my other business like there are so many menial repetitive tasks that come in with stuff whether it comes down to sales whether it comes down to lead generation when it comes down to social media posting content like there's so many things and then people start this business is oh i thought it was gonna be so easy and you're like but i have all these different things to do and now i gotta get sales now. I gotta do all this and it's like dude. You understand that like you're you don't have time for all this stuff like you don't have time for all this stuff. When it finally came to that realization my life changed forever right in in in in tandem with the performance habits. You know philosophy in book. I started to realize okay like if i can figure out ways to replace myself or systematize myself i can then take that menial task that takes me ten minutes to do every single day and get rid of that ten minutes in offloaded onto something else or a bought or a machine or an automated process in that ten minutes every single day right and this is hard like this is. This is a really hard concept mentally to grasp especially for people like me. Maybe like you. If you have your own business you started your own business because you want control of everything right like you i. I used to always think that i would. I would let control like release control of things. But i find myself being that typical type of entrepreneur mindset of like. I can't let this go like. I need to do everything i need to make. It's my baby right and it. It's hard it's hard especially maybe it might be easier if if you're in like a career type job or your manager or something like that where it's not really your your ass on the line right but when you find ways to automate things when you find ways to systematize things. I'm telling you like there are. There's such of level of freedom and efficiency that comes into your life and not only that but like your mental wellbeing right and a couple of examples. I'll share with you. Here are a couple of pieces of software that i use in my own personal life. That have really really helped me one is called. You might be familiar with this or or you might not be. But it's called. If this then that right i f t t t If this then that in it's an app that you can actually download in. I'm telling you like it. It is really really cool. You can get automated Spreadsheet entries you can do you know. Save money automatically you can do like. There's a whole bunch of things that i don't even know it can do that. It can do right. I do think like it used to be mostly free. I think now they have a paid subscription where you can only get so many of these things free but like basically right like if you get a response in g mail from a new person. It automatically saves their contact information. A spreadsheet or. There's like things to just help. You live easier in actually save those menial tasks that suck up your day all day every day right because it kind of goes back to that i matrix. I've talked about before. On the show. With stephen covey being sucked into that black hole of the knot important. Not urgent stuff right. The facebook stuff. The email filtering Scrolling through social media just like all this different shit right and another piece of software. That i've actually really really started to use in like is called zap ear It's pretty popular one. You probably are familiar with if you do any kind of online business or anything like that Maybe you're not so really if you're not familiar with zap here it's kind of the same type of thing if this then that But man even that like it is. It saves me so much time in my business for automation and sending automatic emails and collecting lead information. Letting letting me know. When i got a sale you know through The various channels my businesses and Just automating stuff like it really It really comes down to because like you gotta think like okay okay so some of these are paid subscriptions right like you pay. I think if this that's like five dollars a month and you get so many tasks to be able to do this right and you see you be sitting there like well. Is that really worth. You know the one thing. I use it for whatever but you got also think like is the five dollars or ten dollars a month whatever. It might be worth the time that you are sacrificing. Doing those things
Questions Arise Over CDC Guidance on COVID-19 Vaccines
"A lot of Americans Congressman Thomas Massie already had coronavirus and wanted to know if he should still get a covid-19 seem most everyone has had covid-19 is considered immune but how long immunity last is unknown whether it's after infection or vaccination on award winning scientists himself as he quickly found that vaccine studies showed no benefit to people who've had coronavirus vaccination didn't change their odds of getting reinfected. The controversy began when Massey noticed the CDC was claiming the exact opposite cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices had just issued a high-profile report offered by fifteen scientists. It wrongly claimed Pfizer study proved. The vaccine is highly effective or showed consistent High efficacy for people who'd already had coronavirus. Thar's Covey to it says the exact opposite of what the data says. They're giving people the impression that this vaccine will save your life, even or you know save you from suffering even if you've already had the virus and recovered which has not been demonstrated in either the Pfizer or the moderna trial the mystery deepened when Massey contacted CD-ROM for an explanation as he says he was so alarmed by the misinformation he decided to record the calls on a December 16th. Call cdc's Captain Amanda Cohn C ROM Agree that people who've had coronavirus shouldn't rush to get vaccinated. You know given that there's limited doses right now where we are you suggesting that those people who wait for that suggestion to wait has it always gotten out. Should I get the vaccine if I've already had covered it experts say it's a good idea because they're not sure how protected you are after recovering our full measure investigation examined the database reporting illness after covid-19 scenes. It shows numerous people are getting vaccinated even though they've already have the virus some experts say that's depriving others who need the vaccine most health officials in many kids say they don't have enough vaccine. It's happening across the country promised doses not delivered on the call. In fact Massey for flagging they're mistaken claim that vaccines were proven to work for people who've had coronavirus. I think we'd read that way. She'll go down the other stuff. You know, we just skipped right over it with we know we can't be perfect. I mean they're working on this thing will forever after be known at all but legalized. Okay, and they said thank you for finding the mistake. We're going to fix this and I thought well, okay problem solved. This is how government works but it didn't quite turn out that way two days later the same doctor KO nud probes to fix joined other CDC doctors in repeating the false information this time in an online session for medical professionals. They wrongly claimed studies show people who've had coronavirus home do benefit from the vaccine.
Lead and Discover Your Purpose from Your Job Dr. Michael Colburn - burst 12
"In my view. Productivity is the ability to make choices. That's the fundamental piece. Going back to stephen covey remember steven kevi. Gosh circle of so. So he said there's a circle of of of concern visual things. That's all the stuff that's going on in our world around us. You know it could be your job or just in in the world and some of the stuff there that you feel kind of difficult or are frustrated because there's a lot of stuff going on you can't do anything about right. Stephen also talked about. There's a smaller circle in there. It's called a circle of influence. That's the stuff that you care about to you that you can do something about so what i found. Because that's the first chapter my book. I find what happens when you find yourself in a situation where you can't do anything about it. Apparently where you feel like you can even make choices. So there's three fundamental questions. We have to ask. Not what is wrong. Why why do i feel so bad. I can't do anything. So what is it you care about. That's causing you this frustration. I care about my children. I care about success of the organization. I care about a whole bunch of stuff. Then the second question is a powerful question. So what can you do about that. J. people can always answer that question. I always say a small can is better than a big cannot. So then what happens is and i tell stories in my book about that and then the third question which is the most powerful question after that is of all the cans. What will i do. And i think the word will is powerful because that that is ownership and slow by going from the frustration to the can to the will you can. You can translate things into into action. And that's a powerful feeling. You have and what happens is when i do that because i get the same feelings. Everybody else when i do that it. It tends to remember that cubby circle it tends to make that circle of influence grow. Here's the thing about those three questions. And i loved these three questions and i hope people wrote these down and i'm going to review them again but i think one of the things that happens in these three questions that we dashed against cider circle of influence that first question. What do i care about. I think you've gotta get honest first of all with that and even if it sounds selfish you have got to be honest with you. Say you know what. I care about a care about me and what i want. And if that's i think it's you have to get down to that level of honesty being able to look at yourself. I mean that's what it is. What it is right. And so i mean we we. I think we have to. We have to be really honest with you if you're if you care about money and that's what you care about. Then that's what you care about. This isn't we're not talking about something. Bigger and magnanimous that is ethereal and out there. We're talking about just being. Okay what is it that you really care about. And then what can i do. I think this is a place where they gotta get on his too because they short side themselves so quickly because they immediately go well. There's nothing because they get their migdal gets hijacked in the middle of the brain their emotions take over and the go. There's nothing i could do nothing. I can do nothing. I'm stuck here right. That's not the question. The question is what can you do. Rate and people shot down. I have had clients coaching clients. Who you know. We'll say throw up their arms there. I don't know what to do anymore. And i'll say well what can you do. I can't do anything it's like. It's a reflex action. Well that's why the first questions important it have a real discussion about. What's really important to you. What you really care about. And and i really find that deep down people feel bad about ninety year old person deep down on people unless you have some really deep psychological problems right people can discover something beyond themselves and and what happens is the per- the person who says well only care about money. What they have is a very small universe around them right circle. Is it it off three feet from them. And and i'm not sure if someone is in that situation i can help them much At that point except to have them think through a had them question your own values right. So how does that make you

Good role model of the Great Leader. So that's A great bucks I would highly recommend. Awesome. Thank you for sharing that. So back to your work before we finish the question, you've been wanting me to ask all along like how can people learn more? Where can they find the book? Where do you WANNA point people in terms of learning more about you in the book and your work. Schorr while the book has just sold wherever books are sold just came out and says available everywhere. You can download it today because I had to do the audio recording. So there's Eversion and audience on my bucket list to. My books are on audible but I haven't done it. That's on my bucket list. I have to ask up to do that. It takes forever. You have to go into the studio and your boys only lasts for a couple of hours where it gives out. So. Yeah. So it's available everywhere, but it's a great read and. We also have another seven habits is available for teenagers. With available for kids in illustrated picture book, He's powerful habits and they're. They're not owned by antibody father used to say these aren't my habits. I've just described common is are owned by everybody and. So he was very humble about it was embarrassed by it success. But this. It's a great book that I hope if you haven't had a chance to read it, lot of the younger generation may be hasn't. And Look at you know the best selling book maybe top two or three of all time. By Steven Covey, it's a it's a great must read buck if you really want to be in the know of kind of the best thinking around how to be effective as a person. Now, I just thought of another good reason why you bring out a thirtieth anniversary edition in that is that right now we're living through all of this of how our high school seniors in our college seniors are not getting their graduations and thinking about how they could how they could support them by him. A copy of this book they they won't read it. If it says Nineteen eighty-nine in it, they might read it if it says twenty ten and in the front.

I often start by asking people about their journey sort of what got them here but you know you've got a famous dad. He was your dad, right but he was famous lots of people knew him or they knew him or wanted to know him.

Psychiatrist Dr. Mark Goulston - Real influence and Training Yourself
"You're like you're like. Drinking from a fire. I'm apple. Ramp Myself Up I. was I can't take a nap on your show. That's for sure. I want to demonstrate something because there's a saying at least in Hollywood I'm not that far from it even though we're all isolated. It's better to show than to tell so. I'm going to demonstrate something far. Listeners in for you about how to be more influential. One of the things unfortunate to do is i. On on break now, but I breakfast would Larry King every day. Although we're doing zoom calls now and something. I've noticed about Larry because Larry eighty-six. He's still going strong. Still has a show. It streamed call Larry King now on home on the on the Internet and something I've noticed what has made Larry's such an icon. Is. Here's A. Plus after. and not a minus sir, and not a topper. What that means is when he listens to people. He adds to what they're saying. He doesn't a minus it he doesn't. Get Defensive. He doesn't give advice. He doesn't give unsolicited advice on his shows, so nobody's afraid. They're going to get a GOTCHA. And he's not a topper. If you say I if you say Oh, I went to the mountains, he he's not going to say oh. That's very nice. You know we went to Europe. And, so I'm going to be a plus to something. You just said I. Hope this will add value. You're listening because you mentioned something about training and I was thinking as you were talking about and I'm. And I'm reminded of a fellow named Dan Sullivan. Dan Sullivan found something called the strategic coach and part of what Dan said is what life get comes down to his habits. Happy People have different habits than unhappy people. Successful people have different habits than unsuccessful people. And he said what a habit is is it's a discrete piece of behavior that you repeat over and over again until it becomes a habit. And it takes about a month, and in other words you train on that and you repeat on that takes discipline, but over time you internalize it, and it becomes more natural, and then you can learn another habit now why this is important under stress because I'm am a psychiatrist, but I'm also a passionate about neuroscience. Is. What happens is when we're under stress and who isn't. We have you've all heard of your adrenal glands? And what happens is your adrenal guns. Put out something called Cortisol. High Cortisol is high stress and what happens is your high cortisol triggers something in your brain called your middle and Migdal as part of your emotional brain, and when that high cortisol goes up. What happens is it triggers a migdal hijack and what that means. Is Your Migdal shunts blood away from your thinking brain. Into your survival brain and guess what taps into your training. It will tap in to what you've been trained to do almost automatically. Do you think NBA stars when. They think between shots. No, it's training and they've been trained. What what's the saying? It May Have Been Stephen, Covey senior, or someone said you need. What is it ten thousand? What does it take to be come an expert? He said was at ten thousand hours. As a ten thousand hours or know that's probably more training in many of us however. Yeah thousands of hours. Thousands of hours and what happens is you become an expert at it, so you don't even have to think when you're faced with a situation, so I can't emphasize what Jay is saying. Strongly enough train train train train so that you have many many options, no matter what something whatever is. Facing you years ago I, was a fan of tiger woods during his heyday, and it was interesting when someone asked him. How do you play around the Gulf? He says. I've hit every shot possible ten thousand times, so he's an expert in every shot. He said every time I hit a shot. I don't race ahead I. don't worry about it because I know. I've trained and hit whatever SEAN I'M GONNA face. Ten Thousand Times and he says what I do is i. just you know, have a nice walk dot, breathe and feel okay. Don't worry I get on top of the shot I. Look at where I'm GonNa next hit it I know I've hit it at ten thousand times. I look at the ball and I. Just say one word execute. And so I love what you're saying about. The Training Training Training and And I know for a lot of listeners. In these times you're overwhelmed. OVERWHELMED WITH! I can train and I'm just trying to make it through the day. I'll tell you another bit of training. That I learned from a friend of mine. His name was Bob. ECKERD he was the CEO of Mattel. And I asked I asked Bob. How do you deal with stress? and. I'll tell a quick story if that's okay, sure absolutely story. So he told me. He said that before he wasn't Mattel and he's left Mattel. Now is an investment company, but he really turned mattel. Ron Big time. And he said before that he was the CEO of Craft in Chicago and when he started at kraft, he was I may president of the cheese division. And in two months time, the dairy prices went up. And so craft, Gary. Prices went up, and then they went down, but it was written into the bylaws of craft that they didn't lower their prices, so the independence lowered the prices when the prices went down, but kraft didn't. And he had no say over that he was just the president of the division. He unwritten all the protocols, and so the newspaper there was all these headlines. Heads are GonNa Roll at craft. It's going to be the end of craft. Because Cheese was a big division biggest. Division. And he told me he said you know. I was just in a funk and staring. Into the TV screen on a Sunday and the. Coach of the Cincinnati Bengals Sam Wash. And taken the Bengals to the Super Bowl two years earlier, they'd lost, but he took him to the Super Bowl. But this year they had lost ten games in a row. And Bob said I'm just staring at the TV. And the report says to. Sam, so Sam. What are you GONNA do. You're going to be fired on Tuesday. What do you think about that? and Bob said it was as if he was speaking to me. Sam Weiss looked out on the television and said. You know what I'm going to be fired. On Tuesday I know I'm going to be fired on Tuesday. Everybody knows I'm going to be fired on Tuesday But, that doesn't matter. What matters is what can I do between Sunday and Tuesday to make the Bengals a better team? So what Bob adapted I think it's a great philosophy to get through stressful times, and he used it to get through rough times at Mattel. Is. He said before he goes to bed. He says to himself, and he writes down. What can I get done? That's different. Than what can I do, but what can I get done by the end of tomorrow? To Make Mattel, a better company. What can I get done by the end of tomorrow to be a better husband to be a better dead? And when you write that down when you train yourself to get into that habit to it for thirty days, it'll become natural. You can go to bed. Easier, you can change it when you wake up in the morning, but again it's one of those trainings. What can I get done? To Make My. To make my team more successful to make me were successful. If I'm looking for a job to be a more effective and looking for a job so right that. That question before you go to bed. Train yourself to do it. And you might be able to get to sleep without having to take some of those magic. His name is Dr Mark Allston. A. By the way I did not know he was going to do this and it was better than I could ever. Swore. WE'RE WE WE? I know we're. GonNa talk about this book real influence. And it's fantastic, but what you're hearing is the heart of the man, and he is absolutely fabulous. He's going to be with us for the next forty minutes on the
Setting and Understanding Expectation
"Stephen Covey. He called sharpening the saw. Seven Habits of highly effective people right. A read the book. It's a little dry Stephen Dryer to listen to. If you have the audio book part of it, but man is some good stuff in there ready years and years ago in a couple of times cents. If you take a break to sharpen the saw blade. It's pretty simple. You cut more. Would right I guess you could? I guess you could use a knife in the kitchen as well. I guess you could be a woodworker. It's a seraing same thing. But whenever you sharpen the saw, you're going to be much more efficient than what you do. The same thing applies pretty much every aspect of life now a very long time ago when it began to working with people like we're talking. Twenty years ago, this point longtime ago. I realized. A formula is a good thing, and certainly formula for momentum is a good thing, and there is a very predictable repeatable path that I learned over the. That just has to happen, and it has a lot to do with your physiology. In other words, your body can only take so much focus and activity the whole thing. Your mind can only hold so much in terms of momentum. Houma got him excited and then one day like I. Don't WanNa. Get Right. Had that happened before? It's pretty predictable because we're humans and were made up in a certain way. And eventually we just gotTa wear out. That's why we. Kinda sleeping on a Saturday or Sunday morning sometimes, so my formula years ago became. Ritual rest. Rejuvenate Reactivate and repeat. I called it a five hours I. don't call the virus much anymore because we will say five hours that, but to me. It's five hours ritual rest reactivate. Rejuvenation. Reactivate and repeat. What do I mean by that number? One success comes when you perform ritualistic actions every single day. Good stuff right things that are going to move you in the talking about my my client. It was trying to get US credit to go up, and he just basically had to pay his bills on time ritualistically, if not every day once a week have had a B, but every single day you got to figure out what works and ritualistically go do it. Don't keep trying to reinvent the wheel. Figure out what works lock it in place and go do it. You will build over time kind of layer upon layer upon layer of ritual activities that are good for you. Most people when they start out, just not recognizing the activities are actually really positive for them and the dwelling on the ones that are bad for them. We'll just don't do that. Just find this good and go do that every single day. Now next. Running full out all the time is something that is not really sustainable. You need to stop and rest I know you're a superhero. You can go go go go go, but you know. What have you ever noticed that? Even though you're going, you're not completely totally in the game. Is Kinda get tired emotionally. We're a little bit, so it's not really sustainable. One of the biggest things when I'm chatting with people all the time they're go, go go go go Scott I'd stay up later. Get up earlier. I said Yeah. How long can you do that? It's unsustainable so once we get the ritual activities every single day. We need to focus in on some rest. The rest could be you know asleep. Good night it can be taken weekends off could be an occasional vacation or are more than occasional lots of vacations if you're really thinking, right. But you have to stop and breast and I know it's difficult, sometimes particular time to stress out a heck to arrest right now when I got to get stuff done. I don't even know it's going to be happening. But ritualistic behavior day by day by day, and then taken the time to rest, because you need it and you human, and it feels good and other people can like Murphy do. It's a good thing. You gotTA start. From rest. What's next. Well As your body to do something and your mind by the way in a big way to rejuvenate and become healthy again. It just like working out at the gym. People go to the gym and they don't WanNa. Take a day off the bit by the gym bug. You're going to go, go, go, go, go and I get it right now, right? They're not. Everybody's GONNA JAM and we're not back yet either, but maybe maybe soon get that comfort zone to go back to the gym and get our workouts in. But, what happens is you start working out like crazy new? Push it. Push it. Push it pushing pushing. which don't realize, is it's that rest time when you stop when you sleep when you just take a break when you take a day off, your body rejuvenates when you go to sleep at night, your body on. You're GONNA rest mode. Your body's rejuvenating your everything about it. and. You need to give it time to do that, so we know ritualistically every single day as the example we go to the gym four days a week, right? there. We're going to make sure we get time to rest. Because during that time we begin to rejuvenate, you have to allow rejuvenation time. If you don't. If you get rest and yet, maybe you're. You're fitfully sleeping, you're you're not eating right things like that and your body's not rejuvenating. You're kind of missing part of the part of the formula here. You gotTA. Make sure you rejuvenate during those times maybe. It's resting and going to a SPA or something. Spicy stays right so does not know the rules a spas right now. But they must have them. What's ex reactivate when you're ready? It's time to get into reactive action mode again I want to me that you reactivate yourself, so have you ever felt this feeling? I feel it all the time you get tired. It's time to take a break I've been going I've had my rich realistic activities have taken. My rest of my body feels like it's really absorbed the time been. It's rejuvenated a little. Little bit and just start getting like I got to get going I gotta think if you don't have that feeling likely. You haven't really really rejuvenated yet, but if you've ever felt I know, you have felt it yesterday. Maybe today or think back in time when you were just like you know what enough of this I need to get back to doing. Some feel that that's what you want.
How to Be a Vision-Driven Leader with Michael Hyatt
"I was in the coaching conversation with the business owner, the other day and we were walking through some of the powerful questions that every business leader should be answering questions one was. Why do you exist as a business? And they had the answer that question question to? What you stand for as a business, and they were able to answer that question as well and then the third question I asked him was wear. Is Your Business going and I'll never forget? They looked at me and they said I don't know. From the Ramsey network is the entree viewership podcast where we help business leaders themselves, their teams, and their profits I'm your host Alex Judd and the answer to that question of where are we going is found in your organization's vision and today we talked to someone who's both a practitioner and teacher on this topic of clarifying and executing on a crystal clear vision today. We're talking with Michael Hyatt and Michael. Hyatt has had a lot of success in the arena of vision and growth with the company that is currently running. It's a lesson that he actually learned from a failure when he tried to start his first publishing house at thirty one years old. We started back in nineteen, eighty six, and we had the good fortune of publishing oral hershiser's biography. Now he was the themed Pitcher of the dodgers, and they had just won the world series. He was a household name. Everybody'd heard of him. The book rocketed to the top of the New York Times bestseller list and it was there for seven months. And so it brought in a ton of cash a lot of notoriety and thinks that happens. Is you become successful as you start attracting a lot of opportunities, but if you're not careful, opportunities or distraction, show up on your doorstep, and you can't tell the difference between opportunities and distractions so distractions masquerades opportunities, so it happened us, so we decided you know we were bulletproof. In everything we touched turned to gold, so we thought we'll publish. Reference Books will publish. Gift books will publish children's books. We've been published a large Bible project. The problem was it fractured our focus it. Our resources and that business went bust. And, the reason it happened was because we didn't have a vision that we're starting with. It would be akin to deciding. You're going to add an addition onto your house. And as long as the Home Depot truck shows up and keeps unloading lumber and sheet rock, and you just keep building adding on, and that's exactly what we did. There was no blueprint. There was no plan and we failed for lack of vision, which is exactly interestingly what the book of proverbs says that without vision the people perish. That is so fascinating and I think it's one of those things that. That in leadership, courses and classes and books. We read about it all the time. You have to have a vision. If you're going to be leader, but so often, it seems like they dismissed. Thing that no one knows what it actually is, so can you? Can you set the record straight right now? When you say you need to have a vision as a leader? What are you actually talking about? Not. Talking about is a vision statement. You know we've been told that we need to have this short. Brief almo, slogan or motto that we could put on a coffee Mug or that. We had put on a bumper sticker. Can't. That's not robust enough so when I talk about vision. I'm talking about a vision script, and specifically I mean at this way. It's a written document. That's three to five pages in length. Okay, so it's going to be more robust and pithy thing but something. That's really thoughtful. The describes a future state. It outlines a clear, inspiring, practical and attractive picture of your organization's, future. Here's it's fun. It describes reality as you see it. Three to five years from now. And it's written in the present tense as though it's already happened. Now when you begin to do that, will you begin to visualize something like that? Right in the present tense? That's the first process of creating anything. And I basically learned this process the big idea from Stephen, Covey who said begin with the end in mind. And so to start a business or even a department, that's a part of a large organization without a vision. Is kind of a fool's errand. Leadership leadership presupposes that you know where you're going. You're going somewhere. You know where you're going. But if you don't know where you're going, right, how can you lead anybody there? Yeah. It's gotTa start. With vision. You jumped into this four terms already clear, inspiring, practical and attractive. I want us to jump into kind of the tactical of what those words look like. You're just a bit, but I love the fact that you say that this is robust, so it's not a pithy statement is catching that vision. Is that something that comes from? Is it a skill that can be developed, is it? A wiring is a gifting as A. A personality trait because sometimes we call people visionary, and it just makes it seem like okay well. They're visionary, which means if I'm not a visionary than I can't do right. That's a lot of people. Give up before they start because they think of somebody like Steve Jobs. That's right, you know. He could stand up and not only hold the stage, but I mean he. Had you totally into that reality distortion zone. Actually vision you know. His wife famously said at his memorial service that Steve Not only saw reality clearly, but he saw what reality lacked. And why it was imperative to bridge that gap between what he saw, and what could be so every other cell manufacturer saw that the market was saturated that every cell phone that could possibly be invented had been invented besieged, said Nope I got a different idea, and it was the iphone. As we know it today,
How To Stay Focused on What You Want
"About this focused thing. How to stay focused on what you want. In, particular. As a kid I grew up in. Manassas Virginia. Suburbs of Washington DC. I grew up at a time when every single summer mom and dad went off to work, and kids were just latchkey. Kids is that we were I? Think it was. And I feel that way. I guess it was that way, but we'd get up in the morning. My mom would be off to the office and what I. What would I do? I would wake up and go. Wow, I'm often a grand adventure. Not sure I called it that, but it sure felt that way. Running through the the the battlefields of the bull run national park. The MANASSAS national battlefield all kinds of places, just kind of doing stuff all day long all day, endlessly nonstop adventure, and in the evening it would probably end. In a game of hide and seek. And we play that game. So as grow into adults I've done the same thing over the years I had that same spirit of adventure. Go out and go go, but then something happens as we start doing the adult thing. Have you noticed? That? We tend to find other things that are more important. Shopping and Eating food and paying bills and feeding the dog and taking care of the kids and mowing the lawn, and all that kind of aid is so important. It seems like when you come. Become an adult. That's all you have to do as a kid. I. Guess Cleaning. Your Room was important, but it wasn't so important that you're going to go on your grand adventure unless you had to write. But also kind of fall into that now I. Know for fact that as you were a child and maybe a young adult. You had all these ideas in these dreams in your head. How was life going to be? What were you going to create? And then life began to happen, and suddenly you're focus shifted to get out of bed, Doodoo go go go go back to bed, right? If. You had a good day that that's what would happen. It's my guess is happening right now. There's more that these days than ever before Stephen Covey used to say we shouldn't be living in the urgency and the crazies zone. If you're willing to be an important zone, that's where things happen. That are good life. That's where you're focused needs to be. Right now there's a lot of urgent out there. Crazy? Trying to control stuff, trying to wonder what to think about things trying to just trying to navigate the world as it is today, but I've asked you a question if I may. And certainly when it comes to focus. When did day-to-day tasks? Become more important than achieving lifelong dreams and goals. It didn't by the way. It's just things that we do so. The very first thing that I want to draw your attention to is to draw your attention off. Because if you're focused on the stuff that pops in your life all day every day I got news for you. There's going to be more tomorrow. It keeps uncommon. And what happens is your in fact distracted. What is attraction well? It's a form of focus, isn't it? What do you mean Scott? Distraction is not focused. WHAT'S THE AD is focused on that now that? So I'm going to ask you today. If you're having trouble focusing to think in abroad large picture, just remember Stephen Covey. The reminder that disdained the important quadrant if you will. In other words when I gets busy. When is Chris Crazy? When when you feel, things are urging. You gotTA run out. You gotTA. Take care of it now. If the fire is burning, you gotta go put it out now. What you fire can't burn your entire life. But you get used to it, don't you? You do. So you take care of it? And then you say where was I? What was really important that I wanted to do? Maybe a long time ago, maybe a week ago. What did you want to do? What did you accomplish for your family? What did you accomplish for the world? Where did you want to contribute? Or join a step up. Where'd you get off track just a little bit? It doesn't matter how long ago was could have been a year ago. It could've been twenty years ago. Makes no difference. All you really have to do today is say okay well. What was that become aware of? It think about these things in your life that are awfully important that you just not paying attention to. Guess what just happened. You just paid attention to it. You brought it back into focused in yet. Maybe it's on a computer file someplace. Maybe a post it note in the corner. Someplace maybe stuck to a mirror in the bathroom, but would you want to be focused on? In the middle of the day when you're focusing on a tuna, salad sandwich. You can't focus on what you really want to do, but you just. Did you just so just for this moment, just think. What should be focusing on? What's important to you? What's the most important thing in the world for you? It could be bigger than life right now could be bigger than anything. Be So huge can't even imagine doing it. But still lives, doesn't it?
The 'ludicrous' coronavirus certificate your boss wants
"We're hearing about this trend that seems to be starting with. Employers or schools or day care centers are requiring a carbon nineteen clearance. What people have to guard the pay and get basically a medical certificate? Saying that they're not sick and the Royal College of General Practitioners has put out a statement saying please don't do that. For number of reasons, chiefly, because it's kind of impossible, that's absolutely right. Employer should not be asking employees for that sort of proof, because the proof doesn't exist as we've said before you've never negative test, let's say you are infected with Covid nineteen and you get the test done on day one. It's a high likelihood of negative and hopefully more positive as days go on, so you could have a negative tested means absolutely nothing, and even if you're not infected the day after you do the test, you could be infected and the day before test doesn't matter, so you're going to have the test every day before you get to work. It's completely ludicrous. Ludicrous and really not the way to go, and what really should happen is that people with symptoms should not go to work and be tested to make sure they're not positive, and then even people symptoms shouldn't go to work, even if it's the common cold, or it might even be the flu and you gotta wait interval symptoms settled. We don't have to be isolated for two weeks. If you don't have covid nineteen, the difficulty with this is that GPA's at the moment especially more. I've alerted than ever. The last thing we need is more people trying to vie for that really valuable time. Jupiter are probably not that busy at the moment actually. Doing a lot of telehealth consultations, the surgery's going back into action, but the reality here is that you're asking for tests really meaningless in in the absence of the likelihood that you might be infected I think it's fair enough. If you're maybe a little bit of symptoms, you into a protest, you want to get tested. That's fair enough, but to ask this on a one off basis for a line to say the you're covered negative on one occasion. When in fact you might well be positive is ludicrous. So what should you do if your boss does ask you? You for one of these medical clearance certificates well I. Think should show them the release from the Sterling College of General Practitioners and we'll put that up on our website and you can find. They're pretty often. Take it in one of the things that they do say in their release from the pay is that there's not an unlimited number of tests which is of course true. What do you think about this? Perhaps discouraging people from getting tested because they don't want to be wasting them. There are plenty of tests. People need to test. They should get it done. But the would I mean would put an unnecessary extra burden on testing, and there is a cost attached to that, but we've got plenty of tests. I wouldn't worry too much about that. So question from Perry about why people is symptomatic. She's asking to raise such as why some people is symptomatic. Is the viruses only mall in these people? Can it be savvy and they still show no symptoms I think she's talking about viral. Load here, so let's be clear what we're talking about here. So this is somebody without symptoms who is covered nineteen positive call positive for the SARS covey to virus. That could be two situations one. Is that your? Throughout the course of your infection and the other. Is that your committee that you're having any symptoms yet? But in five to fourteen days you will develop symptoms, and so the reason why you could be asymmetric. Right through the course of your disease is that you got a very small doors of the virus? It's likely that the doors you get an. Organism, is related to the severity of disease. One reason why healthcare professionals can get very severe disease, so if you get a walloping doors of the viruses likely, you're gonNA. Get A walloping case of the disease. It's not true in everybody, but that's one reason so. That, you could be symptomatic. Probably the biggest reason why people symptomatic is their age and children beyond one year of age through too young I don't who'd through to fifty sixty years old, the likelihood of getting symptomatic disease increases, and it's almost certainly do in that case to the response of your immune system, because essentially symptoms like coughing sneezing feeling fatigued, are all symptoms not so much of the virus, but of your body's reaction to the virus, so it's like getting an immunization in your. Your arm it goes red and inflamed that your immune system responding to the immunization, and it's a good thing because it shows that you're reacting to it and similarly with your body, so your body is reacting strongly immunologically. Then you're more likely to get symptoms, and of course this severe covid nineteen disease is actually a disease of the immune system. It's an overreaction of the immune system doesn't mean to say if you get a few symptoms like fatigue or Or loss of taste, and so on that you're heading for severe disease, but it's a sign that your immune system is reacting quite strongly to the virus, so those are the two reasons those of the virus and your immune response related to your age in particular,
Plan your weeks on Fridays
"Good morning this is Laura. Today's tip is to plan your weeks on Fridays. So this will probably not surprise you but I like to plan okay. Fine I love to plan. There is nothing more than sitting down to plan what I'm going to do with myself. What my family members are going to do with themselves shockingly. My family members don't always go along with these plans. Imagine that must be fun to be married to parented by me anyway. Just because you're planning doesn't mean you're doing it. In the most effective way a few years ago I made a change in how I plan that has really made a difference in my life and might be helpful for you as well so to start my story a long long time ago. I read the late. Stephen Covey's book the seven habits of highly effective people. It's really great book. If you haven't read it he talks about planning your life in weeks and I think this is really smart. Weeks are the cycle of life as we actually live it not days. I mean what's a typical day for you? Is it Tuesday or is it Saturday? They both occurred just as often and they both have the same number of hours. But I'm guessing they look pretty different for you. Weeks give you an accurate picture. So after reading seven habits I started sitting down on Sunday evenings and planning the upcoming week then a few years after that. I got the chance to interview David Allen. A lot of listeners of this podcast probably know him as the author of getting things done. That's also a great book. I mentioned my Sunday planning to him and he told me that a lot of his clients reviewed and planned their weeks on Fridays so I decided to try Fridays and specifically Friday afternoons. I'm a big fan of the Sunday. Planning is great but Friday. Afternoon is even better. Here's why I I don't know about you. But Friday afternoon is not exactly my peak productivity time. I'm usually doing nothing of consequence by Friday afternoon. I am sliding into the weekend. I'm not answering my phone. I'm hiding out so no one can find me. It is really hard. Start anything new on Friday afternoon but I can usually summon the energy to think about what future me should be doing and by taking a few minutes on Friday afternoon to plan the week ahead I turn. What would have been wasted time into some of my most productive minutes of the week? Friday planning also gives me better weekends in two wits. I even if you love your job you can always feel a little bit of Sunday trepidation. You know what this is. There's like an avalanche of work waiting for you on Monday. But you don't know exactly what our know how you're gonNA deal with it if you make a plan on. Sunday night will you've spent much of the weekend cohabitating with that sense of unease if you plan Monday morning on Friday though? Well you've got a plan so you don't have to spend your weekend worrying about it and just as a side note if this plan involves meeting with people making your plan on Friday means that you can call or email them. They're probably still at their desks. So they'll respond. Which might not be the case if you try and get in touch with them on Sunday night second. If you haven't thought about your weekend Friday planning gives you a chance to call friends. Make reservations buy tickets? Whatever you need to do this vastly increases the chances that your weekends are awesome rather than forgettable. So if you plan on Fridays and I hope you will just take a few minutes to think about the week ahead make yourself a short three category priority list career relationships self

She was here so they're you know they're buying a house together when he moved back so obviously she's going to be in my kid's life one way or another. I have two answers to different variations. One is incredibly childish and the other one is probably a better solution. Maybe Wendy Wendy has made us do. But there's definitely the path you can take of like you know Investigating her and feeling like Oh man like when you meet her she younger or whatever is she pretty. You're like like how we spin ourselves out in that realm but I think that I don't know I'm sure as you probably already. You're a single mom with three probably gorgeous children. You're doing a fucking amazing job so I think that you know the wise answer be to just be super open and friendly ends like in an industry where it's so easy to be consumed by jealousy. I think that this is how I combat my jealousy and it's very effective for me if I'm jealous of somebody or somebody makes me feel insecure. Even if it's irrational even if they have no intention of doing it I find myself feeling very liberated if I give compliments and I know that it's like a silly basic thing but when you do meet this woman there's a liberation and it because people are disarmed and it makes you feel lighter so I would focus on like as opposed to coming from the angle of like. Is this woman going to be a good influence on my kids? I would go at it. Like how do we make sure that everyone is as peaceful as they can be? I think that would be what I would recommend. Because if you're xs serious with this woman then she'll be a part of your life and so how. How do we minimize the stress on you and I think that like generosity of spirit that will give you a sense of like alright? Alright she's cool or you know or like it'll make you feel better inside. I think that's at least been my personal experience. Wendy do you have anything more to say? What I said was brilliant. I was brilliant. And and so. You don't want your husband back correct. This is not one of those things no okay. We're not romantic. Where friends are just how we parent the best how we get along the best you know being so there you go all you need to say to. This woman is look just so you know I'm not going to be in your business all the time. Okay all I need from you. Is that my rules. Have to be your rules when it comes to my kids. Okay we're parenting together. We've got to stick to account allender so that no one's the bad guy. No one's making plans that interfere with someone else's plans and other than that you know. Nobody wants to have problems. I'm assuming so. Let's just do that. And we can all be cool with each other but Liz. I totally understand that. It's so easy to say this stuff. Ps I have no children so I've got all the answers was it's easier said than done. I know but Liz when Chris and Catherine Michael and I all got together. We live very close to each. We see you know we have a child and of course it's like even though I'm in love The of course there's that thing of Oh my God we'll Catherine is young and beautiful and like and so smart and so kind and graceful and I was terrified and now I'm really proud actually of the way we've kind of handled things because I think that were looking out for each other in this weird world of scrutiny but also because Jack is the biggest priority as well and they're also really fucking cool and life is short. I don't want to live with like a any kind of pit of resent. I WANNA learn from my mistakes. I want to accept the various heartbreaks. I've had over the years. I want to attempt to because I find myself happier if I live with a degree of generosity. That is that helpful in any way. Absolutely because you know I watched you be you. Were grateful and welcoming her. You know and I want to be like that. You know I've maintained a great relationship with him is been through a custody war before with my oldest and previous relationships so I know the hell that dot is. You know and I'm really close with his family. You know my family is in out here with me so like with my family and I am going to hurt you. Know I'm GonNa be grateful and welcoming Liz. I think you're totally doing the right thing. I do think it's interesting that you're really close with his family. But I wouldn't actually explore asking if they like her but have they given you an indication if they like her or not. I've only heard good things and so you know. I assume she's going to be great. Tha- that's good because that means that they're not trying to manipulate you but I am human and share. I'M NOT GONNA lie on a little reluctant to actually like meet her but you're right. It will probably ease tension when you just finally say hello even the fact that you can focalise these things. I think shows a tremendous amount of strength and generosity. You know just the fact that you're not critical of her or your acts that just shows a huge degree of consideration that you're even asking like this makes me nervous. How do I approach this? I think that that's in and of itself is huge. Yeah it's true 'cause you know no one's doing anything wrong we've been apart for years. It's totally everyone deserves love and happiness. I think this is an area. I think anytime you're meeting an XS new partner. There is sort of that it can't help but feel loaded. You know I mean like anytime you kind of see somebody when you're in a different point in your relationship especially it must be interesting since he's been gone for a minute so totally understand. Why for a lot of reasons that that this would be like anxiety inducing but I think it will only be incredibly beneficial if you are like the awesome X. That sounds terrible doesn't it but I think it's great and it's great for the kids and I know that you guys have been separated for four years so it's not like it's a big transition for you right now but that you're single with three kids and he's on the East Coast or wherever he is ends with a new girlfriend. I can understand how those circumstances just on the page make it feel like your worlds are very much a part and then when you guys do meets probably they'll probably be some pauses in the conversation but the kids happiness and your happiness. Those are your priorities and so how you can figure out a way to make sure that you are feeling positive in my experience. That's truly been through learning to love somebody that feels like society is like no. I don't know if you should love that person. You should be jealous of that person. Taking a proactive choice. I think will make you feel better. It made me feel better right now. I WANNA Walk in love and acceptance and you know WANNA be awesome. Yeah in the like awkward situation. You know cards for me to hide my feelings. You know I'm very honest and non confrontational so I know I will. You know I will be nine obviously. Of course you will and also. There's always the comparison element How we compare our relationships and our friendships and our work relationships in everything. We do it naturally as humans. But it's important to reflect. I think a bit on that comparison element right. 'cause she not going to replace me but everyone is. You know telling me that's right and she may be fun for a minute it. Maybe she'll be fun for forty years but this was of comforts to me even before any. I think someone started telling me this when Jack was first born. They were saying like. There's no one like their momma. 'cause I remember feeling so guilty about like I don't know what to do as a parent at for a newborn but I am the mommy and that will always be that special special bond you know. He complains about me my son but I also know that he always snuggles up to me when he's in need and I'm sure your kids are the same. No no I just. I know that they will know the sacrifice I mean they see me every day and the sacrifice. I make every day for like so. I won't plead dollars. You know in the fact that yeah. I'm I'm here the MOM. Yeah and it's okay to you know. Meet other people who could potentially be in their life. It's okay and I don't know why it is struck a nerve with me so strange. Oh No it's not strange at all. Liz I hope this comfort you how I am. I say that because I think this is something it's go through. Of course it's jarring. It's another way of alerting you to how your lives are moving on and like any surprises jarring. It would be weird if you were like. Yeah cool I'll meet her. That would be odd. What's wonderful is that? I know that a lot of our listeners will connect with this because wither without kids meeting and XS new partner. It's just a jarring deal. I think you're amazing. I think you're amazing Q. Mazing to you. You're inspired me with how strong you are. And I know you're in the public eye but you're also human and you know I'm going to exact same thing And I hope other people listening who might be going through that too. Can you know not feel so isolated and single motherhood welcoming in a new kind of like not a motherly figure yet? But you know maybe one day a step mom. I don't know so. Yeah no definitely not gonNA stick in the like comparison head space. There's no point in thinking about the relationship because it's so long ago and there's no point our goal is to co current befriends close family. I WANNA keep it that way and they want to keep. Everyone wants to be friendly so really. I'm the only one who just kinda needs to get over it and just expressive it. What you just said is so noble and incredible. But I also don't want you to beat yourself up for having the thoughts of jealousy at all because that is one hundred percent natural but I do think that like the goal is to be like. I'm going to take this on as like as bravely as possible And it sounds like like I said like even asking the question but please no is that I've totally gone through a gamut of these things and I so appreciate you being open with it so thank you so much. Thank you so much for having this space or people like me. Kinda you know. We always have to as long put are feeling the side sometimes and just you know do it needs to be done and be a big person but this base kinda creates in this community like create us can share that. We're here too. We have emotions too. I'm human and of course I'm going to be nice and welcoming angry for all the things I want to be to be awesome but I'm human and it did affect me and yeah I guess I'm just hoping with this with you. Know Finding Solace in this you know some family and community and church and you know God sees and everyone at the end of the day. We all their to be happy. And you know what's the point like you said and being like miserable about this? This is not my life I need to focus on myself loving my life loving my kids. Don't worry about what they're up to. Just worry that they're going to be good influence for the kids as well and that's okay to let them have the opportunities to do that. When it's always just been Kinda like my territory you know please you so much wiser than I am. I Like I got chills when you were talking about the idea of community in space and because it has been a goal of ours and I love it that you feel safe talking to us. Even though it's like sort of exposing environment I just I can't thank you enough. Truly thank you for opening your your story up. Ang's noted You're not alone but thank you. I think everything will go so well. I think they will too thank you so much. Thank you Liz..

You know what you're going to say that and people are going to start fuck listerine in there. They're going to be because of the virus will they? Should they can do that.

"Podcast so what does the trait you most dislike in yourself I'm impatient about things specifically if it's why. I would not be a good teacher if I tell you in very clear terms how to do something once and you don't get it okay twice you don't get it. If I have to tell you three times what am I doing here. There's something wrong with you. Yeah did something wrong with me. I didn't explain it well but I get so like totally. Have you back with us? I thank you I'm with you. You know got things to do. Okay what is the trait you most dislike and others Rudeness to people that someone finds beneath them and I think that we see that a lot of the way our industries structured. Yeah I it is frustrating to be witness to any dismissive behavior right. Yeah I like that answer. What or who was the greatest love of your life? But I sort of want to stipulate that you not see your husband okay even though that might be your first answer yeah greatest love of my life it can be a saint. Say Okay I would say my my GRANDPA. Oh that's because he was so much fun and he was great with this. Is your mom his my mom's dad because we would run our little ideas pass him about. Oh I have an invention or oh I wanNA play this and I want you to be that. He would never be dismissive of our ideas. You know he would just jump right in with both feet and play with us. And so that's why we loved him so much because he never treated us like. Oh my gosh you WANNA do that. I saw you talking on a talk show about when you were kid you would do a lot of plays like you're always like active and and I was the same way and I love it that you had somebody in your life that nurtured that. Yeah that is great. What a gift. What a gift. All right GRANDPA L. Yeah we're okay. When are you? You're happiest? It's also says when are or were okay tents feels a little guilty but like you're never gonNa be moved happiest you've ever been again but tells about a happy experience. I love going on long car trips with my husband because then like you know how when you get punchy and you're tired and everything is funny. That's what I'm the happiest when you're just laughing at stupid shed. That is so fucking Rad. Answer because that means that you guys are still fundamentally enjoying each other's company on a road trip Oh yeah oh road trips. That's the litmus of relationship a yeah that's great. Where do you guys like to drive? While we're going to go to big Sur very soon. Yeah there's a couple of animal sanctuaries like out in the sticks out like past magic mountain and stuff where you know if you just need to have a soothing day around some animals. You'll go and do that. There's a place called Wolf Connection Wolf. No Oh my God. That sounds awesome to go okay. Wolf's you love wolves I love. Who doesn't have these are mostly high content wolf dogs that have been rescued so like everybody thinks. Oh I'm GonNa have a wolf dog. I'm going to have this giant dog. It's going to be great well. Then that giant dog eats your couch and is ready to eat your family. You know what I mean like. You can't have them. They're illegal in California so they have to be taken to a sanctuary and they still have very wolf e tendencies and they want to be in a pack. And it's a big thing so there's a place called. Wolf connection out there in the dignity cruel. Oh my God you have. You have your soul fed. We'll connect to okay. I actions really. You're just out in the Angeles forest. You're breathing clean air. You're communing with these gorgeous animals and when they howl. I'm telling you something you feel it in your bones you feel it in your DNA. I can't I believe enough about it. We went on a moonlight hike with the wolves. One time it was a trip. Nothing but the light of the moon and these wolves. That's amazing. I'm telling you anyway. I like road trips with my husband. I love that okay. Have you had any near death experiences? I was held at gunpoint ones. That could have gone that way but health wise now so moving on moving. But I've never I've never died on the table or anything. Do you why it's up to you. Do you want to elaborate on this intriguing store? Sure I'll give you the cliff notes. Version I used to work at a jewelry store. I worked at a series of jewelry stores when I was in my twenty s and one of them was in a mall and it was one of those corner stores. It's next to an entrance so quick getaway. If you wanted to rob a jewelry store. This was the one to rob so three armed. Kids came in pointed guns at us. The owner of our store took out his gun and shot and it was awful. And then oh come to find out after having these guns pointed at us between them they only had one bullet so three guns one bullet and we had a fully loaded gun and whatever and the one that got shot did die but he didn't have to. It was just a superficial wound. He just ran and bled out. It's terrible your cliff notes version. I was prepared for like some kind of gentle but realize your cliff. Notes version is condensed into just horror. One bullet three guns at Dacca. What Yeah Fuck. Lots of nightmares after that. Fuck Wendy what single thing would improve the quality of your life. Oh what single thing would improve the quality of my life. I have no idea how long I guess if I had more energy to enjoy my free time. That's a great answer. You know but right now I feel like I am just living between naps. I guess an everybody's industry now. There is that feeling of like you have to be proactive. So there is a level of exhaustion. There isn't any job security so I yes yes I'll you hit the nail right on the head. You know you gotta be sowing seeds. All the time and I haven't had a vacation in five years you can pick Servia visit the wall. No you're right one. You told me right. You're you're going to soon. I don't know if you're GONNA filling up there right. No no no no Li just chilling. Okay who would you invite to your dream dinner party but only make it to people to people? I know. It's a tough one. I would not answer that either. Actually that's not true. I was trying to think of the other day about the absurd times. I was star Struck. one was with Mike the Situation From Jersey Shore. I felt myself gambling. Yes did you ever Seen Jersey Shore Language. Reality that you're talking about. He gave you the trembles totally. I was like Greg Turk in relation. Asia okay maybe I can just because. Hey Mike how man year like? I don't know just took me by surprise there was anyway visit ferrum owns. What was it amount of his particular swagger that got you? I think that it was swagger. I don't know if I would quite like that. But I think there was the Mystique of reality stars. It feels different than how I get star struck with actors. That's interesting no. I've never. I've not felt that yet I. I haven't met anyone that I. They let a cower. They feel mystical occurred. Because it's like you really putting your whole as to podcast wife like to think. I'm fairly open and honest at least as open on. I Miss Open and honest to my audience. I am to myself. Okay okay you know but anyway reality Star but so we. Let's get back to you Wendy at Dinner Party Dinner Party. Well here's something weird. Thanks to twenty three and me. I have a first cousin that has reached out that I've never met. I would like to meet him. Where is this person? This person is convinced West Midwest. Are you wary? I was but my dad mad at him because he reached out to like all of us that were on twenty three and me and you know this is a legit story. We know that someone was put up for adoption buffalo and I would like to meet him. That's awesome so that's great. Yeah and then as far as famous people. I've always wanted to meet Quincy Jones really. Yeah why because I love like. He's an American sheriff. I like his. Music is fantastic. Like I would count at least. Three of the album's he's been a part of as my top five so three of those spots are reserved for him. Anyway we got Quincy and the cousin Quincy and the cousin. What do you consider your greatest achievement? My greatest achievement would be that I did make a career in a profession that I was actively discouraged from even pursuing. And I've never once asked for money. I've never like I I did it. I I'm I'm a responsible adult and I am. An actor loved answer because that is massive. Because is so difficult. And it's like those years of rejection and to still like you know purser fear into especially my parents weirdly were very encouraging really point where. I was like Mom Dad. This is not practical. I'm quitting acting. I'm not going to make any remember them? Being disappointed and how they had two kids. I was the younger one. They were just like. Oh this little let this little one. Just fly away she looks so good just prancing around or whatever my headgear with my brother they were like you need to make money and you need to figure out what your profession is usually wears your life going with me. They were like. Oh let's take your two that audition that real leader in the mountains. Whatever look at it was huge for me to have that kind of support but I did quit acting in college because they realize that it just didn't seem feasible whatever and then eventually was like well maybe this commercial and a couple of hundred bucks whatever but I love your answer though about because it is. It's almost like how you teach yourself to be courageous and like stepping up to the play in performing and not knowing people are going to be happy with the way the line is coming out of your mouth or in the rejection. Whatever but I think that it's amazing to pursue a dream and to see it in. Your parents must be thrilled now. They are now. Yeah yeah they weren't for a long time but they it was so outside of their comfort zone they just didn't have any reference points you know and then as as far as like just doing anything that's dream. The hell is that they dreams. No no no you squash those the minute you move your graduation tassell across.

She kind of felt like I should know the lay of the land more than I did. But I didn't because I had only been dancing about three years myself. And she gave me this job so I didn't know etiquette and like how to deal with parents shown here in high school and you have to deal with parents like that are placing other dreams into their children. Exactly you know notes sent home about progress and shit like that. Oh I got algebra to do not. Listen I'm just teaching your kid how to do. Shimmy turn so. That was weird. Yeah that wasn't a good fit but pretty amazing have younger siblings is your sister. Older licenser is younger but seems older has always been the boss of me. What is your greatest fear? Oh greatest fear you know. These are tough right. I wouldn't know how to answer these. Maybe we could break it down to just a fear just a phase greatest fear would for most people be just death I think because then we just. We just don't know what happens. Yeah I'm afraid to die with unfinished business. Deathly afraid of snakes. Oh and gators like how afraid like like if we had one upstairs would Ju- pet it you saying my brother got my son a constrictor. Please tell me you're lying to me. There's a BOA constrictor upstairs. You are really scared of snakes. It's very he's very security spirits sweet and we don't know how long has he always only like three feet fat. Yeah he's he's a jammed. Us values its on medium of a thing. Dan Brother Yours on needs a reptile. I told you get to clean the cage because that's how that goes down. I don't fucking do it. Sweep Michael Does it and feeds leg the snake. The pinky is we have to the freezer. No no no no. I'm sorry Wendy is though okay. So you're not watching my. You have to like steepen you've too steep a kinky mouse in a cup of hot water one question. How often does it eat? Gabriel Once a week the YEP NO BURDEN. Ooh That's a burden for you. Oh Wheatley not for me because of my goal. He's but but I like the snakes. I like things that I like that kind. I think grew up with a lot. Being my brother was he was part of the herpetologist society of Seattle. So we always had snakes tarantulas. Give Peron as we how everything we had everything scorpions. We had a lizards of all kinds like the whole garage was just filled with this rank smell of nasty aquarium and hang on. Yeah and your parents were like go ahead. You can commandeer the garage or did they just. They couldn't say anything about it after a while because he just sort of them. This should wait parameters. Yeah we apprentice in women brother was bringing the bag of Piranhas home to put into the Quilliam. They started to chew through the plastic bag in the car. Arends so yeah and so the water starting to squirt out of this plastic bag and there's like four promise in this plastic bag and there's like water shooting out of the bag and it's getting all over the back seat a we were thinking of course. Lew what are we gonNA DO WITH FOUR FLOPPING PIRANHAS? The back seat of a station wagon with the. You're looking at me. I'm floored well. You know what I would be floored by going to Baptist Church with your parents in Long Beach. We all have different experience. When you're right you're right. I'm not judging. I'm just saying okay. What is it fear that you had when you were younger that you no longer have? I was very afraid of the dark that I was. I was really afraid of the dark and I got used to sleeping with the door open and that blue glow of the TV in the other room and now I still have to fall asleep that way which is not good for you. But it's very relaxing for me to to institute. I think it's the idea of 'cause I did something similar but the idea that there's stuff still happening even though like there's a comfort knowing that there's still activity while my brain shuts off and I so like somebody's watching out somewhere totally. Yeah I wonder if that's specifically well especially as we get older if that's a female thing because we're taught to have feared an early age and a different way right. We're taught to have fear in a different way. You know I think at least the way. I was socialized but I can get into my stupid theories later. What is your favorite sick day movie? Ferris Buehler's Day off. Oh that's a good way. I'll stop whatever I'm doing to watch that movie. I love it. Isn't that sequence in the Art Museum? Just like it's a great fucking movie so good is so hold up totally does okay. This is a tricky one. To whom would you most like to apologize? And why? Oh I will never stop apologizing to my mom because playing a mom on the goldbergs and my character is in the eighties. I now see what my mom went through with me and even though I was a pretty good kid I was mouthy and I shouldn't have been that way I just. I have empathy for any mom out there now. I don't know how mom's do it. I don't know how any mom does it. My mom was a working mom and she had no time for herself. I don't know when she did anything there. Were no naps. You know there was no time for my mom to do anything but when you ask her about these things what does she say? Well I just I just did it. You know I needed to do it and I just did it. I hate it. When my parents talking vagaries like well you were a great kid and I wasn't mom. I'm a fucking Dick I mean there's definitely revisionist history sure I actually. I don't think she's ever said that I was a great kit. So maybe it's known revisionist history going there.

That was my self image and my identity. I unfortunately didn't have good advice. You and Judy gave to Jessica and I fell immediately into a serious and very abusive relationship. I didn't think anyone would want me. I felt that to not be single and so when a sweet talking man came around and swept me off my feet. I didn't listen to the voice ahead telling me to run now years later and out of that abusive relationship the advice of a give my younger self into anyone. Navigating a divorce is seek therapy while we might feel like. We're totally fine in. Yes even happy about the marriage ending. There can be years of unresolved stuff that we need to deal with after getting out of the abusive relationship. I said no to dating for a long time. I went to therapy and I just live at home with my kids traveled and just enjoyed life one day out of the blue. I met a single dad. We took the relationship very slowly and now I can honestly say this is the best relationship of my life. Yes of course. He is wonderful but the differences.

He's a sociologist and he does a lot of research on bullying that I was thinking about. How like you know how you perceive yourself in high school And how it can be different from how other people perceive you did you go to your scene but I did. I went to my ten year and I went to my twenty five year but then I then I quit. How was that experience for me? I went to my twenty. It was a B plus of. And maybe it'd be okay. Maybe it'd be minus which is not we know when you're forty. I don't want to have be night. Yeah go out especially if your travel to ask night so I can help people about it. Yeah you know yeah. A beat night isn't good for anecdote. The last one I went to was probably a C minus. I didn't love it. That is very specific. Yeah so like there were a couple moments. It was like. Oh that's kind of Nice to see that person or whatever but then the rest of it was like yeah. I don't know I feel tired. And whatever I'm missing my shows you miss show but I was thinking about. How would you have graded yourself in terms of your social experience? Well I went to big high school on Huge High School Milliken Highschool Robert Milliken. Not sure what he did but he's got a high school named after him so they're about a thousand kids in my in my new. My Great. Yeah it was huge. So you know we also had fraternities and sororities. Oh they weren't sanctioned by the school but they were there and you would rush. I wanted nothing to do with not box. Organizing fraternities and sororities. If it's insane I guess it solid prep for the next staff for the next step. But you know there. It's college future rejection setting the table for you know. These are the ashes you have to kiss in life. It's like the opposite of you know the whole the tried to flick giving your kids and award for participating. You had the opposite experience. This was like beg for it. And when you were rushing to wear like little bow that indicated what Sorority you were rushing and if someone you without your bow they would demand that you make them cookies or they would make you do something embarrassing in front of everybody. Ymca in the quad at lunch by yourself and go up to different. Oh God seniors and you know since you a freestyle rap like dumb things like that and you had to do it will you? Apart of I never was a part of that I wanted nothing to do with it and had overprotective parents. Who wouldn't let me do it anyway. So that was nice. I didn't WANNA do like. Who Cares who cares. Addition though that's a strong position for young person I grew up in a really strict household and I was allowed to do very little but you know I had a friend group and we had fun and I eventually started doing popular person things like I was going to the mall. No like I. I was a cheerleader. Oh you were like or I was bills your Mascot Ram Robert Milliken so ram. Go Rams or don't go rams I don't care anymore anyway. It was fun. I did those things but I never went to parties. Did your parents like were. They like you're home by eight thirty like right after the game. If I was with my friends they would extend my curfew. If I was with a boy it was like we'll see you at nine. How did they know they just knew they? Just you mean I could not get away with anything. You a bad liar. Are you a bad a bad liar? and also. I was so afraid that they would take one more thing away from me. I didn't WANNA do anything bad right. You know. Just don't take my my ballet lessons away like just please. Don't take anything else away because really close yes. I love my family and sounds like a really. It's impressive that your parents were. I have a seven year old at home and I have no idea what I'm GonNa do when he's like I won't. I was a liar though. Okay I'm not a great liar now but could lie to my parents all right at that time. Out of absolute necessity. Okay so I was like sneak out and go to some parties and stuff. I was never But I do wonder like how it feels like an impossibility to contain a teenager in any way your parents job but you did it. You were a sneaky girl. Did you steal the car ever? Did you know I never did that? I was also. I'm terrified of rules and authority like I really want to figure out how to not get caught. Okay is whole strategy. How do I not get caught but I think so? Yeah it's not a great place to live but but doesn't that give you an advantage for when your kid gets older like you kind of already done at all. So I don't know how I don't know because I think it'll be tired. No I'll be tired. I'm already tired okay. I don't even know if I have the energy to say. Are you lying? You know great.

Why You Should Bet on Talent with Dee Ann Turner
"Our guest today is Dean Turner. She spent thirty three years as the vice president of talent for a company that has become globally recognized for having one heck of a chicken sandwich. An even better organizational culture. It's Chick-fil-a and in this conversation and her new book. Dna argues that of all the variables and resources that you could bet on as a business owner. There's absolutely one thing that you should bet on when you think about a business owner. There's lots of things they can bet on and in many do they bet on strategy they bet on marketing. They bet on the newest technology and from my experience and what I learned when I was working at chick fillet of all the things you could cheese. I choose to bet on talent because it's the talent that actually drives all of those things you don't have the Best Strategy. The best technology the best marketing plans when you've selected the best talent for your organization now when I was selecting Franchisees for chick-fil-a. Chew it used to tell me people. Decisions are the most important decisions a leader makes and for our business out of all those. The most important decision was he gave the keys to the restaurant. And so in. That's true of any business. Whatever your key leader is that's the most important people decision you make because it's going to affect every other people decision so when you have a great customer experience at any business. I think you're able to turn around and look at the later and you know that's why one of the things we challenge business owners with all the time is that you are not looking for be players. That can't find a job. You're looking for a players that are currently on A. B. Team and WanNa work for an eighteen. What would your advice be to finding and then kind of Really attracting those a players that want to be a part of an eighteen sure. Well that's definitely the way to go about it and those people are often going to come from those eight players that you have. Now you want them to bring other players into the organization and are always recruiting even when you don't have jobs available you're building relationships. You're building a pool of talent. When the best Franchisees I ever worked with? He was just so great at that. He built relationships everywhere he went. He kept business cards. He kept names he put contacts in. He followed people on instagram. Whatever it took and then when he had an availability he had a hole pull of people to go to and he'd built the relationship and so they were much more apt to want to work for him. Those are all important steps to be taking to prepare yourself for when there's a time like this that there's a real war for talent. Gosh that's so good. It's kind of like it's winter right now but spring is coming and rinse spring. Comes you better be ready? That's what are some other things. People can do intentionally to make sure that they are prepared whenever there are people looking for a great job or whenever there are people looking for employment. Well I think having your employment brand out there is so important so have a presence on social media. Have a great instagram account. That shows what it's like to work in your organization and again not just people having fun in throwing pizza parties. Or whatever articulate party. Sorry throw it right. I mean you WanNa show him having fun but you know they want to do meaningful work so talk about. The results or organization is achieving talk about the impact your organization's having in the communities where the organization serves and highlight those in the social media campaigns. But that's really important and getting your presence known in us all of those channels to do that and invest in the communication of an employment brand that describes who you really are. Gosh that's so. We see small business owners all the time that invest a lot of money in creating a great culture in their organization they celebrate whenever they hit big goals. Their team is serving the community and no one knows about it. And it's like man if you were just publicize it's exactly what you're saying if you would just publicized this a little bit again people would be attracted to you and again. I've seen examples of that at chick-fil-a stores around the country where the operator was intentional about doing that and it seems like that's one of the reasons why parents want their kids to work for. Chick-fil-a any other restaurant on the street. Well another thing that some of these best franchisees that you talk about is they do let people know in they. You know they think of it is. It's a sales opportunity. Recruiting is just about selling jobs versus selling a product and said they take that approach and they invest in in the same way that I have to sell this opportunity the same way I focus on selling my service or product so if you look at it as selling an opportunity how does that affect how you write a job ad or something that you're putting on linked in or indeed. How does that perspective shift away? You right the initial add. Well I think he began as Stephen Covey says with the end in mind. So if you're thinking about the experience amazing customer experience you WanNa customer to. Have you want to win the hearts of customers? Then you have to write a job ad or linked in profile that is more act these days but The really describes the person you want that's going to achieve that so you know you're not talking about. Hey I want somebody to come in and make chicken sandwiches waffle fries. I want somebody to come in and exceed the expectations of customers. That's a lot more challenging. That sounds a lot more exciting and my job and my role one day may be to make the best chicken sandwich ever or it may be to stand behind the counter in smile or to take orders to the tables or to clean up in the dining room but all of those things come together to exceed the customers expectations. Whatever my role is and so if you're creating an employment brand this is this is what it is versus just listing tasks that you'll do every day you have a lot better chance of attracting a different kind of candidate and maybe even weeding out the people that don't belong before they ever even schedule an interview. Which is also a positive okay to tell a funny story and I don't think you'll care but you're looking for different people to do different things and I talk about the story in bed on talent. But I don't think I say that it's my son There's an an operator in Athens. Georgia. And he is really smart about the way he places talent in his organization and so one of the toughest jobs in a chick-fil-a restaurants actually filleting the chicken. You might not know this but the chicken arrives and it's hand breaded in the restaurant. We call it filleting when we open it up and we for lack of better term smashed down press it out because the flatter it gets the better cooks evenly the faster it cooks and it gets more bun coverage now you know more than you ever wanted to know about killer focused on boy that's a KPI. If I ever did here that's good. So my son was a football player in college. In this operator hired him are selected him and his job his whole shift would be to prepare that chicken and he would hire athletes to come in there and do this job because they would start to compete with each other in. He was a very high volume operations. Go a lot of chicken going out and my sons I asked him. I said why do you like that job? He said well. I get to use my competitive nature. I get to use my muscles and he said I really don't WanNA stand at the counter all day and say my pleasure and I said well if you don't want to stand at the counter and say my pleasure then that's the right job for you had some other employs. That's exactly what they were good at doing was to greet the guest and to give them that. My pleasure service but wouldn't want to stay in the back of the House all day doing that. So that's a very important part of job satisfaction to is finding the talents of people. Not just what they can do but also what they enjoy doing and placing them in the right role. That's so good. I'd love to know Dan. What are some of the fundamentals of a great hiring process to start seeking out character competency and chemistry and all of the other skills and abilities that you're looking for in a players? There are two things that I just believe are the most important pieces of what can be a lengthy process. You know the company I worked for Chick-fil-a we historically had a very lengthy and in-depth selection process but there are two pieces of it that I feel like our most critical that make the difference in getting the quality of candidates that someone is looking for the first one is the interviewing itself and most people know this but sometimes it's a new idea to people the concept or the technique of behavioral interviewing is really important so when you behavioral interviewing is sure absolutely so instead of just going down. Somebody's resume or through an application and saying. Oh so you worked here hide you like that instead which you really want to learn about is their past performance because we know past performances. The best predictor future performance. So if our job profile calls for somebody let's just continue with this idea of this front counter person if the job profile calls for someone who's going to greet customers every day. I'm going to say tell me about a time when you've had the responsibility to provide customer satisfaction with someone okay so it doesn't necessarily have to be a job. It could have been volunteer role could have been in all kinds of capacities that somebody could make that connection and then the thing that I try to do is what I call three questions. Deep Sigh once they explained to me you know one time I worked at the retail store down the street and I folded the shirts and sweaters and put them back in. I would do that so that customers. When they came in they wouldn't see clumps of stuff all over the place and I'd say something like what kind of feedback did you get about how you did that. Oh my supervisor was very pleased. Stay right on top of that. You know. Every time my supervisor came in he would find me over there folding shirts and I would have everything in place and insane from there. I might say something to the effect of well. Tell me about as you think about this role how you think you can transfer that skill that you learn their into this role all of a sudden we've had a whole conversation on just one topic of customer service. We repeat that six seven or eight times. We've had a very in depth conversation that gives me a real look at this candidate and how well in the past. They've been able to perform at some of the roles our tasks they'll be asked to do in this job. And then here's the key I was just going to say I think that it seems like that's so crucial because one of the challenges we see people face is how do I know. I'm not just getting the face right. Anyone can show up for one interview. I mean you're saying U. S. three. Follow up questions per the initial question. I don't let me it's not like it's a rule or something but just in my mind what. I'm trying to accomplish to be sure that we have a really in depth conversation and it's a way I mean. Somebody's not snowing me. It's a lot harder when you ask those. Follow up questions than you just say. Hey Gimme example. When oh I did this. I completed this project and then you go the next question. But if you're like oh well tell me about what your team members. Thought about your work on that project you know. How did you interact with them? What was the most difficult thing about working with them on that project? All of a sudden we've had a much deeper conversation. But here's the key after all of that and the second the real Ason the whole for any organization to get great talent is to invest in referencing doing the background check of the candidates because so often it's either people don't do it at all because a there. No there's somebody's GonNa tell them no we won't give you a reference and so they don't WanNa do it our secondly just takes too much time in their frayed. They're going to lose the candidate or cost too much money. They don't WanNa make the
Helping A Child Whose Parents Are Struggling With Addiction
"Around twenty children's sit around sickle inside the main Camp Lodge. Almost I only have a parent. WHO's addicted to opioids? The lights are dim. It's one of those moments you know is going to be intense and you should brace yourself even before it happens. Happens the eight to twelve year olds. Read the letters to addiction dear diction why do adults like you. When I'm older I will be kill? Kill you make me not like bog. Edad ed it's sad. You make my dairy goat prison. I hate you their addiction. You are immersed my worst enemy. You took my dad for me. My stepdad my aunt and bound to be my uncle so I just have to ask you a question could you please just go to hell. Signed Hyundai very sad kid. I hate you so I wish you wasn't. Will you kids so bad. I hate you go to to help. This is my issue. Mommy the pain. These children feel L.. Is almost too much to bear and millions of families are touched by addiction. But remember that episode of Mister Rogers neighborhood where he tells children to look for the to help us. Well this episode of Life Kit is about how you can be that help because not everyone is lucky enough to go to a camp like this windy. Berkshire Director of campus and Dayton Ohio. Says kids shouldn't bear this pain alone and the most important thing is that you know. Oh that you're gonNA love most important thing to me. Is that your team. And you're no and you're heard after reading. Each child goes outside and throws their letter into a glowing firepit. They watched the letter to Addiction Bourne. Berkshire on other mentors hug them. And say I love you and you're so brave one little ten year old with big Blue Eyes as the last one in line chilly high. Listen IT S my mom. He missed him sweetheart in. I'm sorry mom here. I'm sorry what can you do if you'll see the teacher a neighbor churchgoer coach and you suspect something might be going on. Maybe or thinking yes. I'd love to be that person but I don't know much about addiction. Mary Beth Collins with the National Association for Children of Addiction says it doesn't matter we're not expecting adults to have to go and do a crash course you don't have to go And read a book all about addiction. You don't need to be able to speak clinically about substance use disorder all that you really need to know how to do is to be carrying to be loving and to be able to connect with kids and engage with them. mm-hmm that's as simple as it is. Okay but what if you want even sure there's really addiction family or maybe you don't want to overstep again. Mary Beth Collins says don't worry about it I invite this people to not get bogged down with that level of responsibility. You don't have to Komo for sure it's bad enough before you intervene. I'm covey the Cardoza and before I began reporting on addiction I used to think it mant mant parents strung out on the floor or they've disappeared for days or severe abuse going on but experts like Collins say that's actually not not true. Most of the time addiction takes place in families. That seem like they're functioning pretty well so you'll see them going to work or in Church walking the dog doc. She says the far greater likelihood of neglect or emotional abuse lake constant criticism or unrealistic expectations. Having said that a child safety of courses the most important so if you see signs of physical or sexual abuse definitely call the authorities. All of these children have experienced traumas sometimes abuse and neglect a growing number are in foster care. Many have apparent incarcerated dead or not in their lives. Alone is a national nonprofit that runs these camps in thirteen states many areas hardest hit by the the OPIOID crisis. The children meet at least twelve times a year so I think of it is an opportunity. That's Claudia Black an expert in the field of addiction. She helped start these camps years ago. Yes safe place for very young children to be where they can speak their truth where they can be honest about what it is. That's going on in their family. She says there's a lot of secrets and Cheam. Many kids don't even know what the word addiction means. They just know that parent is different. One eleven year old whose mother has been in Rehab. Several Times says this is how she explained it. If you really want to have a cupcake every single day in constantly constantly. And if you didn't have it you'd feel really schick. Black says that might not be the best analogy because well children love cupcakes. Rather she says she tells young children. It's like an illness or a disease with those who are older. She's a little more graphic. Something literally has their arms their hands wrapped apt around your parents neck. And that there's a choke hold and that your parents hands are tied behind them. They don't have the ability to reach up and pull pull whatever it is this got them around that neck and that so severely choking them in. I think that what we want people to a really grasp is that it isn't willpower. And there isn't a choice at this point without they're getting some kind of help. Okay so now. Let's get down to some practical tips Bryan Moss overseas all camps at Luna. He says these children are at higher risk for so using earlier and for entering the juvenile justice system will never be able to change. What's happened to them but what we can do is boost the protective factors and and lessen the likelihood of long term consequences? What are some of these protective factors that brings us to take away number? One being a caring consistent doubt in a child's life a help. Oh because Claudia Black says often. That's exactly what these children don't have a sense of mastery or feeling of success. At least one area of your life is really helpful to children and so the role that somebody could play play is how can I help develop that with child. Maybe that's with Helping this twelve year old boy work on a car with me and I'm the neighbor and and I teach him some mechanical skills and he develops a sense of mastering sense of pride around that. Or maybe it's win. This little girl comes to my house and plays with my kids. I get she and my kids involved in an art project and really try and further her talent because I see some natural talent in the art things you can do. I really really simple bake a cake. What you game going to hike kick around a ball ask about school collins says it's not about the activity it's about showing you care consistently those loving moments are what will build that trust in these children? And it's through through that trust through that consistent nature that they will start to trust you more when Michael was nine. He got into trouble unlocked for privacy reasons. We're only using his middle name. He was angry because his dad never spent any time with him. He was always dealing with Michael's brother Who is struggling with addiction? He would rarely come because he was with my brother or he was working. It was either one of the two. Michael didn't tell anyone how he felt. I hope but he was angry. I would slam the door as will as sometimes I hit my head on the wall and then walking out of class and and just not being able to control how I felt at that time and then one day miss missy accounts lettuce school started talking to him in the hallway just stuff like how a school today and what do you enjoy doing sometimes complimenting him Michael started going to her office to chat every day for two years she enrolled him in a Lunar Kemp. Michael says he always appreciated that. She didn't ask questions about his family. All pry.
