Ep. 70 Take Your Time Back Today: Part 1
"Welcome to make the grade with the success Dr. Steven Green were. You'll discover actionable strategies to help your student to reach their academic goals to excel at standardized testing into planned for the college admissions process painlessly. And now here's your host Dr Steven Green. Low. Dr, Steven Green here. The Success Dr. And I am recruiting this as part one. Of A three part series. Part One will be discussing time management. And the importance of it and how pertains studying? So. Number one question being. How important is time management to success? My answers is critical, critically important. For many reasons. Not The least of which is that everyone is very busy. Students are busy. Teachers are busy business. People are busy. Everyone is busy. So it's really about efficiency. It's about getting everything you need to get done. In a reasonable or maybe even minimal amount of time, which a gets all your work done. That's the practical piece research also less stressful. and. Let's be clear about something time management. Isn't really managing time. Only it's about having a plan. The plan could have many steps to it. At many pieces to it, and they conclude Organiz him just getting everything you need to get done in one place a checklist, the need to prioritize those tasks. You have to set appointments with yourself to get these tests on. Then you have to follow up then you have to execute. You have to actually do them. and He needs to plan. You need to plan in the short term. And long term, so you're gonNA have things. Get done by tomorrow. There's things that are going to be more ambitious projects that you may need to do over the course of a week or two weeks or beyond. So, time, management is a system. It has steps to it. Each step is important one-step flows to the next. It should include a short and long term timeframe, and it has to include executing and accountability. Aren't some people just better at it or smart or just or smarter, just capable of doing well. Well, of course, everyone is a different skill set. And some people are just better at time management just like some people are better in anything, but the key to me is the efficiency piece and the ability to work and get things accomplished at your highest chal would be able to reach your goals, not just getting by or doing average work were. Just kind of dealing with stuff, and always being a little bit behind just kind of on the edge, the other piece of it is, it's not always just one single thing. Sometimes, it's the aggregate of many different things. Some students take very very rigorous course loads. And, maybe one particular class or any particular class isn't gonNA. Put them over the top. It's not the straw that would break. The camel's back so to speak, but the combination of multiple challenging classes and extracurricular activities may be the enough to kind of get right to that borderline of inefficiency. So. Of course, some people are going to be better at it. And some people are going to be more efficient at it, but in the end, everybody has to think about it. Everybody has to be systematic with it. So. Life always seems to get in the way studying. How do people deal with that? Well in my opinion. It's really about having a daily consistent action system. and. It's also matter prioritization. Life and get in the way of anything. But when you're a student or your education, you have to set priorities just like you would in business or entrepreneurship or anything else. The Cure, as it were is to prioritize your time to properly allocate your time and to choose wisely. Hey, you're gonNA. Use Your time. So, it's always the mindset should always be first things first business before pleasure that sort of thing and your goal is to not let life get away with trivial things that are unproductive if it's something important or something that has to be addressed. That's different, but it's all about something I said before which is prioritization? And making sure that the important things get done I and that's all part of the time. Management System and information management system that I teach. So what tips could I suggest? And how to use study time wisely. While number one is you have to have a system? The system can be different for everyone. It doesn't really matter exactly what your system is, but it should include some fundamental core components in my view. These should include managing your time prioritizing your time as I said before setting appointments to get things done making sure you get it done and being accountable. So you have to have a system, you have to use your system every day. Every single day you can't selectively decide to do it one way and not the next day. You may want to modify the system over time. Add parts to delete parts to it, but ultimately you're going to have a system. That gets what you need to do in one place. Sets it up to be done. And looks at things in a short and along term way. Another piece to it is. You can't be afraid to ask for help when you need it, there may be projects that are just GonNa require more than you individually can put in at that given time. And that that may be group work. At maybe a tutoring sort of thing that may be an educational support thing. It's going to vary, but the key is. It may be part of your process. And then the last thing I would tell you is. Don't let small problems become big problems. Always try to nip things in the bud. This is part of planning ahead. But YOU WANNA. Make sure that's part of your system. So. Many of these tips came from my book, which is called maximum education. The book is available at www. Make the grade dot net. I would love feedback and suggestions and comments, which can be emailed to me at s green, which is s G. R.. E. N. E. At make the grade dot net, but I would invite you to check out the website.

Happy Birthday the first word is attitude who denies at two denies with with an S. e. at the end which is the British variation of attitude denies with a Z.. E. which is our next word. It often goes that way. Fancy that This is an intrinsic verb from seventeen eighty four to assume and affected mental attitude. Synonym is pose. Now we have eight. And this is an abbreviation for the word attention. You probably see this abbreviation creation a lot in your emails. Maybe now we have ato. It is a prefix att. Oh With with skip the we'll come back to that. ooh This is fun. It is one quinton billionth part of one Quintillo alien part of that's the whole definition. We have an example. Ato Graham So An atoll Graham is at one quinton billionth of a gram. I just cannot comprehend These these parts One Quinn Chilean's by the way is ten to the negative eighteen which I think basically means that? There's like eighteen zeroes in front of the the actual number part that you're dealing with with. That is tiny and This is from Danish or Norwegian. A ten eighty T. E. N. which means eighteen So if you ever wonder where we get some of those weird prefix things You know million billion trillion Quadrille Ian but also on the other side. There's I'm what I'm trying to think of there's Nanno nanometer Nanosecond but there's all these other ones but anyway Addo is one of them And that this one in particular is from Danish or Norwegian and I wonder where the other ones have come from. That was my point This is all from the old norse. Dion A. T. T. J. A. N.. Which is akin to the old English? How do you say this word Word Yacht Tatyana which means eighteen which is honestly not all that far off from the way we say it? It is spelled spelled by the way the old English word E. H. T.. Eight T. I. E. N. E. There's a horizontal line over the I. We are going to move. You want move on move one away to the next word which is a torn it is an transitive verb from the fifteenth century to agree to be tenant to a new owner or landlord of the same parody. A tournament is a noun. It's not where our people joust that would be a tournament this is an a tournament and the etymology says. This is from Middle English Tornado which is from anglo-french attorner Turner or a tornado. Which means to prepare or designate or a torn and that is from a plus Turner which means turn now we have attorney? This is a noun from the fourteenth century. One Who is legally appointed to transact business on another's behalf half especially the synonym lawyer attorney chip is a noun and I think that would be hilarious if there was a cruise just for lawyers and it was called an attorney. Ship the ETYMOLOGY. This is from Middle English October. Knee SPELLED WITH AN O. You not no but no you. Oh you S- camp which is from the anglo-french attourney which is from the verb autour near which we talked about in the previous episode in the mall? And that is. It doesn't tell me. Well I guess or Tornado where it means prepared designate or torn And Turner means to turn Why that has to do with somebody? Legally appointed to transact business of another's behalf is beyond me me next we have attorney at law there are hyphens in between the words. It is a noun and if you WANNA plur allies it. It is attorneys at law. It's not attorney attorney at laws. That would be weird. It is from seventeen sixty eight a practitioner in a court of law who is legally qualified to prosecute and defend actions in such court on the retainer of clients. Next we have attorney general it can be pluralist fascinating it can be realized by Or in the ways attorneys general which would make sense or attorney general's which which also makes sense But in a different way so this is from fifteen eighty five the chief law officer of a nation or state who represents represents the government in litigation and serves as its principal legal advisor. I know so little about this because a I don't know law and be I don't know oh politics and so this is just so beyond my scope of understanding but that's what they do. At least I know that next we have the word attract attract. This has some fun synonym information at the end. Well I don't know if it's fun I haven't read it yet but I'm assuming it's fun just like this whole book. This is a verb from the fifteenth. Century will start with the transitive definitions. there's a couple to cause to approach or adhere as A two pole to or draw toward oneself or itself as in a magnet attracts iron. Be To draw by appeal to natural or excited interest emotion or aesthetic sense and the synonym is entice as in attract attract attention. We all love it when he when we attract attention. Don't we I guess that's part of why we're doing podcasts. Why I'm I'm doing this? Why people do these things because we want some attention right deep seated in our brains we want attention we want to attract it from you Now we have the transitive initiative definition. It is to exercise attraction and attractor or attractor is a noun Now I WANNA see a picture of a tractor d'Or made of a magnet. I don't know The etymology says this is from Latin attractiveness. which is from the Verb Ultra Hera which is from ad plus Tra Chara means to pull or draw and now we can do the synonym stuff attract allure charm captivate activate fascinate and enchant? Mean to draw another by exerting a powerful influence attract applies to any degree or kind of ability to exert influence over another as in students attracted by the school's locale our students really the attracted by the school's locale like do they go to a school. I guess in College. Yeah that makes sense in college if it looks Nice. They'll more likely want to go there. So that's that's why colleges make they're usually make their grounds all pretty and nice and fun. All right. Next is allure implies an enticing by what is fair air policing or seductive as in an alluring smile charm implies the power of casting a spell over the person or thing affected and that was strange. Charm implies the power of casting a spell over the person or thing affected and so compelling pelling a response as in charmed by their hospitality. But I haven't seen this before but it may like like captivate suggest no more than evoking delight or admiration as in her performances captivated audiences. I I feel like the plural performances went on was unnecessary. It could've just said her performance. Captivated audiences fascinate suggests a magical influence and tends to stress the ineffectiveness of attempts to resist as in a story that continues to fascinate children. And I just thought of something in regards to my comment about the word performances They the dictionary does a very good job at keeping all of the left and right besides justified. So there's no it's just a straight line down on both sides of each column and when they have to add hyphen they'll do that But in general it stays pretty pretty lean like that so I suspect That to make it nice and justified they actually Added the S. her performance. If it were if there were no s the end of the line would be a would have been a little bit short Hey you dictionary a maker. Tell me if I'm right right. We just did fascinate and now we have enchant enchant enchanted. I never saw that movie. Looked kind of fun. Actually enchant is perhaps the strongest terms in stressing the appeal of the agent and the the degree of delight evoked in the subject as in hopelessly enchanted by her beauty very hopelessly. Now we have attracted this is a noun from nineteen twenty a substance as a fair amount that attracts specific animals as insects or individuals of the opposite sex You know a saint opposite sex. That's very dated now again. This book is a little bit old You probably just leave it as as insects or individuals vigils period end of sentence end of story. Okay now we have attraction. This is a noun from the fourteenth century. One a the act process process or power of attracting B. One B. Personal charm to the action or power of drawing forth a response and attractive quality. Three a force acting mutually between particles of matter tending to draw them together and resisting their their separation. Four something that attracts or is intended to attract people by appealing to their desires and tastes as as in coming attractions and there is an S.. At the end of that one Movie trailers that's a lot of coming attractions interesting. I I actually never thought about that phrase in that way These are the things that are coming in the future and they are there to attract you to go see them mm-hmm and spend the money right now. We have some synonym information again. Attraction affinity sympathy mean the relationship existing between things things or persons that are naturally or involuntarily drawn together attraction implies the possession of by one thing of equality that puts puts another to it as in felt an attraction to danger affinity implies a susceptibility or predisposition edition on the part of the one drawn as in an affinity for mathematics sympathy implies a reciprocal or natural relation between in two things that are both susceptible to the same influence as in two minds in sympathy.

#1147 - Q&A: How to grow a YouTube channel with 121,000 subscribers?
"Here's an honest question. How are you supposed to know what to do with your money? Very few of us are exposed to meaningful advice on how to manage our finances. Even fewer have the means to get professional financial guidance while betterment is a platform that was built to do something radical to give accessible financial advice. That puts you first. Veterans Technology will put your money to work choosing the stocks strategies strategies. That are right for you because they know you have other things to do.

T. for the betterment of you we have been talking about ideas and crafting initial roadmap to launch your first project. You're going to get started this year. We got a lot of people out there in that situation but also aware that we also have a significant group listeners. Hearty well ahead. That's so cool as well. Because beginning in the second half of one of show we began to see an increasing percentage of the stories we featured came from listeners. Who had joined early on? This is one of my favorite things about making satisfied school because I know it works. We've got all these success stories case studies from our community so whatever stage you're in in the process so glad you're here we try to keep things as relevant as possible for the whole community now. This Australian lister today the reason I say that is because we're going to hear today from somebody who is further lot back. They are really far along. This Australian listener already has a very popular home cooking youtube channel with more than one hundred thousand subscribers one hundred thousand subscribers. He is now looking to expand his reach further. What comes next. Let's talk about it. Let's talk about transfer wise the smartest way to send and receive money internationally. If you've ever had to move money across borders chances are you were haunted by hidden fees whether you use your bank or another provider. They likely hit an extra fee exchange rate and you pay too much and if you didn't notice well that's the whole point. Transfer wise is different. You always get the real rate when you send to over seventy countries or when you convert currencies using their multi-currency account you pay one super low fee and keep more of your money over. Six million customers are already saving with transfer wise. Try them today and get your first transfer free by visiting transfer. Wise Dot com slash podcast? Hey Chris Business game from Melbourne Australia. And I've been listening to Shave for macy's twenty nineteen my side. How slow is my home cooking? Youtube channel create. Insure myself repair my favorite meals in relaxing. I have recently passed one hundred thousand subscribers and also landed a partnership with the brand name now looking to further expand. My reach question is how do I expand this type of business without losing my channels identity? I have read about. Seo's and have studied the data from my analytics but the data is telling me that in order to grow quickly that I need to be making the same popular dishes that are also being featured by larger channels at this give me in venturing into already saturated spaces which in my opinion kind cruises the risk bridge video invest time resources into producing. I don't want to sell up too much viewers but it would also like to grow may numbers against any business. So what direction do you think is Best Disturbance Project tweets? Thank you so much for this so I I hear. What's the most important thing to say? Congratulations listen gave. This is a tremendous accomplishment. This youtube channel is really the embodiment of what many of our listeners. Want to create so we learn from. You should come back on and tell us how to do it. But let's talk about your question since you did have question. Let us talk about growth and the question that comes to my mind here is why are these people giving you their most valuable resource? Which of course is their attention. Obviously because you're doing something right like all. These people have subscribed to your channel and are returning to watch your videos because they are learning. They are enjoying their being inspired being educated informed. Whatever it is probably some combination of those things so whatever you do. I don't think you should stop doing that. Like if anything. Perhaps the answer could be do more of what's working okay. Because I was looking at channel and it looks like you're making about one video week now. I know it's a lot of work. You clearly putting a lot of work into this but my first question is can you double it to to. Can you make different kinds of episodes? Perhaps now looking at the kinds of foods being prepared demonstrated through this remarkable channel. Game has got foods like Kimchi fries. Milk Tea Onigiri. Breakfast says most popular one actually with several million views and a lot of the other half like fifteen thousand and twenty thousand etc. So still good now. These are definitely nonstandard kinds of foods. At least for Westerners okay so as for this point about making the same dishes that you see on larger channels well I understand that could be important for discover ability because even though Kimchi fries sounds interesting creative. I bet a lot more people search for Kimchi Fried Rice for example. So my question is. Could you make that in a way that leads to more people stumbling upon your content? I without feeling like you're being authentic somehow or overselling or otherwise taking too much of a risk and maybe that's the second video of the week. Maybe one is a more traditional dish done with your twist your presentation etc and the other video is more imaginative next. Are you trying to cross? Populate Your Strong. Youtube Subscriber Base on other platforms. The cooking space is very visual so I wonder what are your goals for instagram and snapchat for example and then last but not least one final note because we can all improve even though Gabe has five million views on this channel so far most of them from that one mega popular video but a respectable amount for many others. The about section in his youtube profile is completely blank. Well don't do that your subscribers WanNa know more about you. I think people sometimes kind of hold back or they're restrained but listen. Don't do that your subscribers want to know more about you. That's why they have chosen to subscribe one hundred thousand people so don't be afraid to tell that's my two cents and listeners. Go CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF. Youtube dot com slash food for the gaps food for the gaps. Abs will link it up in the show notes. You might want learn to make your own milk tea and more and if you leave. Gave a comment letting them know that. You're hearing on just as I am. Also if you have a question dot com slash questions will feature them throughout the year along with updates from other listeners as they launched their projects hopefully many of them growing to be a success. Just like this one all right. This has been episode. Eleven forty seven. Come back tomorrow. Eleven forty eight. This is Chris Gila Four side-hustle school from the onward project.
#B101 (bend to benedict)
"Hello words welcome to another episode of the podcast called the dictionary. The first word is Bend B. E. N. D. It is the I form. It's a verb. From before the twelfth century I are the transitive definitions one to constrain or strain to constrain or strain to tension by curving as in Bend Abo- TO A to turn or force from straight or even to curved or to be to force from a proper shape to see to force back to an original straight or even condition so an original straight or even condition. This is the weirdest podcast. Ever three synonym is fasten as in bend a sale to its yard for a to cause to turn from a straight course. Synonym is deflect for to guide or turn toward or tour. Toil were met you. Listen to past episodes. I have trouble with this word. Toward Synonym is direct. Foresee synonym is incline or dispose. For be to adapt to one's purpose synonym is distort. I think at least three of the Senate started with DS as in bend the rules. Five to direct strenuously or with interest. Synonym is apply as in bent himself to the task. Six to make submissive. Synonym is subdue. Now we have the in transitive definitions for the first form of bend one to curve out of a straight line or position specifically to incline the body in token of submission number two to apply oneself vigorously. As in bending to their work number three synonyms are incline and tend four. We have the number two definition for the word. Compromise bendable is an adjective. That is the thing that is able to be bent. Bend One's ear means to talk to someone at length who you gotta get. Those social cues bend over backward or bend over backwards means to make extreme efforts. Okay next we have the second form of bend. It is a noun from the fifteenth century. One to act or process note the act or process of bending the state of being bent number to something that is bent as to a curved part of a path as a stream or road and then to be the number two definition for the first form of whale w. a. l. e. not w. h. a. l. e. or w. a. l. e. this is w. a. l. e. and that is usually used in plural number three The painful manifestations as joint pain of decompression sickness. Oh yes also. The synonym decompression sickness. This is usually used with the word. The the bans. I have heard that that really sucks and I think it could kill you I. That's part of the reason why I've ever gone scuba diving. But it would be fun to learn and then around the bend is a phrase and that means mad or crazy number now. The third form of bend it is a noun from the Fifteenth Century. One a diagonal band that runs from the Dexter chief to the sinister base on a heraldic shield. What is at Dexter chief and a sinister base compare to the phrase or the words? Bend Sinister. We're coming to that shortly. Actually interesting words or ways words are put together number two a not by which one rope is fastened to another or to some object. Next is Ben Day B. E. N. D. A. Y. One word adjective from nine hundred ninety three involving a process for adding shaded or tinted area is made up of dots for reproduction by line. Engraving Ben Day is also a transitive verb so interesting. This is from somebody named Benjamin Day. Ben Day who died in one thousand nine hundred sixteen and he was an American Printer. So it's involving a process for adding shaded or tinted areas made up of dots for reproduction by line engraving. We're going to have to see if we can find a picture or more information on this because that sounds kind of interesting next. We have bender. We might have to show a picture in instagram and twitter and facebook of bender from Futurama. This is a noun from the fifteenth century. Wouldn't that be great? If it just says like the the robot Futurama who says Kiss Shiny metal ass number one. One that Ben's number two synonym is spree as in hungover after a weekend bender. Now we have that word bend sinister. It is two words. Noun from sixteen twelve eight diagonal band that runs from the sinister chief to the Dexter base at on a heraldic shield so this is the thing that we read before but over there. It said Dexter chief to the sinister base and this has them backwards. Oh the sinister wait oh wait. It says S- texter chief and the second one says sinister chief and then to the first one says to the sinister base and then this says to the Dexter base so they actually flip flop them doubly. It's double flip flop people. Okay next. We have bendy adjective. From Nineteen Twenty eight is chiefly British. Synonyms are flexible and pliable next. We have beneath. I form adverb from before the twelfth century one in or to a lower position synonym is below as in the mountains and the towns beneath slumber to directly under synonym is underneath all right. Let's see this is from Middle English beneath from old English Benetton which is from beep plus Neo thon which means below akin to the old English knife era which means never an h. e. r. and there's more at the word. Nether now we have the second form of beneath it a preposition from before the twelfth century. One A in or to a lower position than synonym is below as in beneath the surface. One be directly under as in the ground beneath her feet onc- at the foot of as in a camp beneath a hill number two not suitable to the rank of unworthy of as in beneath his dignity number. Three under the control pressure or influence of the chair sagged beneath his weight. He should lose a few pounds number four concealed by under the guise of as in a warm heart beneath a gruff manner. And now we have the last word of this episode. It is Benedict B. E. N. E. D. ICT. It is a noun from eighteen. Twenty one a newly married man who has long been a bachelor. This is an alternative of benedict so be FDIC. K- know replaced the tea with a K. Or that's what it was originally named pay spelled. Stop talking just say. The words benedict is a character in Shakespeare's much. Ado about nothing in which. I don't think I've ever seen so there you have that. I'm going to pick bender as the word of the episode because I just think bender from future is hilarious and we are all just meet bags in his world. Oh I was going to mention. I just started watching castle rock Let's see my wife watched the first season and then she wanted to start the second season so yesterday we watched a few episodes of the second season. They are separate stories. The first and the second season supposedly I was not lost coming into the second season but today I started watching the first season which is really fascinating and cool and I actually like it better than the second season so far but I think tonight or the next over the next few days. I'm going to finish up both seasons and that is a good show. You should watch and that is it for this. Thank you very much for listening If you have some bucks to spend and you think that this is a worthy podcast to get funding you can donate to my Patriot on But or you could find a different podcast or project or something. That is more well deserving than this and. I don't think it would be too hard for you to find something like that. Okay that is it has been spencer dispensing information. Thank you and goodbye.

#A331 (avenge to average) ft. just me
"Hello words welcome to This podcast called the dictionary. The only podcast where some idiot reads the dictionary. Thank you for joining me We're we're a few days into the New Year we've had a number of guests on in the Recent episodes I hope you like them. I hope to do more of those in that new style. Style Were which sort of interview sort of a conversation It's way easier for me to do the reading Instead of having the guests do the reader reading because there's a lot to explain it's It just runs much more smoothly. My mouth is not working today and it runs much more smoothly and takes a lot less time So yeah I like that Although if they ever want to be the reader I would be perfectly fine with that all right. Our first word for today is avenge. Av E. N. G. E. IT is a transitive verb from from the fourteenth century. One to take vengeance for or on behalf of to to exact satisfaction for by punishing punishing the wrongdoer and then in parentheses. It was a wrong so to exact satisfaction for a wrong by punishing. The wrongdoer. Avenger is a noun and I guess it seems a little bit weird. That a vendor is not its own Word in the dictionary but I guess avenge is the main part. A bit You all know the movies the avengers and the comic books and the characters So yeah that's that. Let's let's see this is from Middle English or no anglo-french Avenger which is plus at a little bit little a little bit of A. That is made from combining ad plus venture which means to avenge and there's more at the word vengeance next we have of Vans A. V. E. N. S. it is a noun from the thirteenth century any of a genus of perennial herbs of the Rose family with white purple red or yellow flowers and the genus name is g. m. g. e. u. m.. Not sure of how to pronounce that Word Next. We Have Evan Tale Yeah I think that's how it's pronounced. It is a noun from the fourteenth century. And we just have these synonym then Tale V. E. N. T. A. L. so They just took off the a at the beginning of it next. We have a venture rain gene. So it's Kinda like the word adventure with no D. That's too complicated. Av E. N. T. U. R. I N. E. IT IS is a noun from eighteen. Eleven one glass containing overtake sparkling particles of foreign material as copper or chrome oxide. I gotta see a picture of that because that sounds like it might be very pretty. I Dunno number two eight translucent quartz spangled throughout with scales sales of Mica or other mineral again. I want to see what this looks like. This is from French oven tour With a T. U. R. E. At the end that means chance and there is more at the word adventure So yeah a veteran was our word and its related to adventure Next we have avenue. This is a noun from sixteen hundred one. A way of access synonym is route or route. People say both ways I think is there a third way that people say that word route no number two eight channel four pursuing a desired the object as in avenues of communication three is chiefly British the principal walk or driveway to a house situated awaited off a main road three beat a broad passageway bordered by trees four and often broad street or road owed Let's see this is middle French from the feminine of the Word Avenue So Av e. the and you which is from the plural avenir which means to come to and that is from the Latin Word Avvenire And there's more at the word adventure and I it doesn't tell me what ADV venire means so. Thank you for that I grew up. I think I mentioned in the last episode. I grew up on elmwood avenue. That's it next. We have a fair A. V. E. R. It is a transitive verb from the fifteenth century. One eight to verify or prove to be true in pleading a cause one B to allege or assert in pleading number two to declare positively. This is from Let's see Middle Latin odd vera which means to confirm as authentic. Isn't it weird. They've one word that means to confirm as authentic That is from ad plus various which means true and there is more at the word very V. E. R. Y.. Now we have the Well actually this'll be our last word of the episode. It is the word average A. V. E. R. A. G. is this first one is the I form of three and We're GONNA get through all of them in this episode This is a noun from seventeen thirty two one a single value as a mean mode or median that summarizes or represents the general significance of a set of unequal values. Tell us if you don't know how to find out the average of a bunch of numbers You you just total mall up you find the sum some of all of them and then you divide that number by the amount of numbers there are so there are ten numbers and then you divide that some by ten and and you get the average but and I don't really remember the details but mean mode and median are also sort of forms of average judge I don't remember the this the specifics of the differences of each of those So go ask your math teacher about that But they are similar similar but different I think one of them is like the center number or the to center numbers of a list. So if there's nine numbers the fifth one would be the middle one it would be. Maybe it's the mode I don't remember. Yeah and the other ones. You just figured out. It's just different versions of average. That doesn't make any sense. One be we just have the one. B definition for the word mean M. E. A. N. to a an estimation of of or approximation to an earth medic mean to be a level as of intelligence typical of a group class or series. As in above the average I think I'm pretty average all across the board. Nothing nothing above nothing below number three a ratio expressing the average performance especially of an athletic team or an athlete computed according according to the number of opportunities for successful performance. Then we have a phrase it is on average or on the average and that means taking the typical example of the group under consideration as in prices have increased on average by five percent. And here we go with some synonym information for average so we actually will get some more information on a couple of the words that I was talking about before average bridge mean median and norm mean something that represents a middle point. Average is the quotient obtained by dividing the sum total of a set of figures by the number of figures. That's what I said remember As in scored an average of eighty five on tests. I mean may be the simple average or it may represent value midway between two extremes as in a a high of seventy degrees and a low of fifty degrees. Give a mean of sixty degrees okay. Median applies allies to the value. That represents the point at which there are as many instances above as there are below as in average of the group of persons and Let me sure reading. Make sure okay. Average of a group of persons earning three four five eight and ten dollars. An hour is is six dollars whereas the median is five dollars Because five is the center point. Does that make sense. Six is the average average of three four five eight and ten and five is the median. Norm means the average of performance of a significantly really large group class or grade as in scores about the norm for Fifth Grade Arithmetic. And that's it for the first form the average. Now let's talk about the second form of average. It is an adjective from seventeen. Seventy one equaling on arithmetic mean and I think in this case. It's pronounced arithmetic not arithmetic number. Two a bean about midway between extremes as in a man of average height to be not out of the ordinary synonym is common. As in the average person averagely is an adverb and averageness is a noun and here we go with the final form of average. It is a verb from seventeen sixty nine and we are going to start with the N. transitive definitions one. A. TO B. or come to an average as in the gain averaged out to twenty eight percent one be to have a medial value of as in a color averaging a Pale purple. How you can colors be averaged out? I guess if you mix two colors what you get would be the average of them. I don't know that's a little odd I need more information. Please lease number two to buy on a falling market or sell on a rising market additional shares or commodities so as to obtain a more or favorable average price usually used with the words down or up now we have the transitive definitions one to do get get or have on the average or as an average some or quantity as in averages twelve hours of work a day number two to find the arithmetic mean of a series of unequal quantities. Okay so the last part was in parentheses so the main definition just says to find find the arithmetic mean of and then an example of that is a series of unequal quantities. Three A to bring toward the the average three be to divide among a number proportionately and again all those were verbs All right so I have to pick a word of the episode account. WanNa pick Let's see what was this Yeah was this one event terrain because it sounds like it might might be a cool looking substance of some kind Yeah All right so event terrain is the word of the episode What do I gotta say? I Dunno I saw the Star Wars movie. The new number nine F- You know for what it is. I thought it was good. I enjoyed it. Might not be the best S.. Might not be the worst but it it does a good job You know especially and I try and do this sometimes they do it subconsciously. Sometimes I have to force myself but I try and get in the aheads of the characters and the situation And I think as long as everything makes sense with that world whatever world you're watching gene and The characters seem like they're going through something and are acting appropriately You know I think that means they've they've done a good job and if there's at good acting there's bad acting than that's hard But Yeah I I thought it was. It was great for what it was supposed to be. Which is a star wars movie Oh and I also recently watched the second Jumanji movie which again I mean. These are just sort of not so serious fund movies. But that's that's what they are and I thought they both did a great job again. You put yourself in the shoes of the situation. You know even though it's completely fantastical. I thought they did a good job. I thought the characters especially in Jumanji you've got actors acting as a character who's also acting eighteen as a character. It's very weird And I thought they all did an amazing job Given that situation also just just the characters are in this weird crazy world and I think that it just seems so interesting and I think the actors must have a blast doing that and I think that would be a a lot of fun. I'm GONNA stop babbling. Thank you very much for listening until next time. This is an idiot reading the dictionary goodbye.
"I it's Merriam Webster's word of the day for May twenty second. Today's word is Pren- spelled P. R. E. N. Pren- is a verb means.

"Hey guys this is Jenny. Allen and you are listening to the made for this podcast. I would say to the girl that feels alone that this is the beginning of a shift but you're going. I need your running buddies. You need to go find up you know name. 'EM Textile. It'll be a little bit awkward to be like Hey would you want to go to coffee and would you want to listen to this podcast with me just do it. Everybody is isolated. I have rarely met people that don't feel isolated so the person you're afraid attacks and say hey I need you. Would you come into this problem with me. Would you process this with me. The person you're going to invite into it probably feels isolated to and we'll be so grateful and if they don't if you feel like. You know what I I got a big. No we're going to talk about that in this series. We're going to talk about what it feels like to hit a wall and not feel like you have good friends. We're going to talk about what it feels like. The barriers to those good friendships are we're gonNA talk about the hope and the vision and the outline that God it gave us to have great relationships so you're gonNA love it. Stick with me. I promise you if you stick with me. In this series at the end of relationships will look different than they did in the beginning so the reason we're GonNa talk about relationships and community for the next several episodes is that this is a problem I hear more about than any other one in fact on instagram. It is the number one question I get over and over again. How do you make friends? How do you keep friends? I feel discouraged because I've been looking for my community and I can't find. Ended or what do you do when your community bales when you feel rejected when you feel betrayed when you feel cut out. What do you do about competition? What do you do about friends that become competitive? What do you do with your own? Jealousy towards other are people these things all fall in the category of relationships and so because it's the number one question I get and because it's something that I think is so essential to us being healthy and free and unstuck. I wanted to do a whole series about it and start here. I care about women getting unstuck unstuck so much because what happens and I've seen it happen in my own life and I've seen it happen in other people's lives when they get unstuck. There is a freedom of living into everything that God had them to be for a long time. I watched women in the church. Largely sleepy shut down now. I'm watching women the church largely live free. It's truly a difference as I go and travel and speak and with that freedom comes new stuck places because the enemies Never GonNa let people just run wild for God. Had and make a difference in their communities in their schools in their homes in their workplaces without putting barriers and hindrances and temptations in their way in fact the harder and faster we run after God the more he comes after us so I think what I see now differently than it did. Five to ten years ago is that women are largely getting free but they're facing new stuck places and so how do we push through those and so. What does that look like? We're GONNA look at God's word and we're GONNA talk about how we fight these things it's so interesting because when you actually read scripture you realize oh my gosh for generations upon generations centuries upon centuries we have been fighting the same crap it has all the same it is not changed even today with all the unique things Internet has brought and social social media at the core of us. We are still fighting. Insecurity jealousy isolation shame distrust all these things that Paul thought that work through out the Old Testament you see constant. Attention in relationships in fact it's largely a book about a bunch of broken relationships and how God can move through Medina Anyway. I have seen that in my own life and I believe it for years so I'm really excited about this first season of the podcast. How do I develop deep and real community while we're GONNA study the book of Philippians together and see what God has to say about that so I dream about what this could do where we would get free where we would get free together? I want us to see what it means to live life together in a real authentic way but with a Gospel centered hope there is a hope and that hope is Jesus and when we put him at the center of our community the center of our relationships a center of our problems is center of our day to day activities when we figure out how to do that things change as we walked together through this my hope is that people would experience. Experience breakthrough that they would see and understand. I've been believing that I've been saying that. I believe that but I haven't actually applied to my life. I haven't actually put it in the D._N._A.. Of My day to day experience I hope there's a super practical that that people people actually have handles like okay. This is how I can make friends. This is how I can keep friends. These are the things keeping me from experiencing the kind of community the the Bible talks about it is more difficult than you can imagine more costly but it's also more fulfilling anything we're seeking now.

Where Is God in a Coronavirus World?
"Talk about timely. An Age old question is relevant again and now answer is available for the Colson Center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is break point. The question that never goes away for Christians is why would God allow evil and suffering? The latest version of this question is something like where is God corona virus world. That question in its various forms is asked in different ways by different people some ask with the philosophers edge as if calamities like the corona virus or defeat of Christianity. Proving that the idea of a loving God watching out for us is obviously not believable for others. The questions asked in tears by those deeply wounded by personal experiences of loss. Abandonment or hurt almost as soon as this question became relevant again in the face of the corona virus pandemic. Dr John. Lennox turned around a book with answers. Now if you know anything about the publishing world. The speed of this is stunning. If you know anything about Dr Lennox now. It's probably not because of his work in group theory as the building block of abstract Algebra. You see Lennox is an Oxford mathematician and also a Christian apologist whose debated the top atheist religious skeptics of our time including Richard Dawkins Peter Singer and the lake. Chris Hitchens in these debates he's faced the skeptics claims about how the existence of evil and the existence of God or incompatible his outstanding little book published in. What must be record time is called? Where is God in a corona virus world in it Lennox gives answers to the skeptics arguments? But that's not really what the book is finally about. He C- Lennox wrote this book in his words in order to convey some comfort support and hope to people who feel disoriented concerned even fearful because of the corona virus pandemic and all of its consequences and disruption in our lives to this in Lenox largely succeeds like cs es Lewis whose essay on living in an atomic age. He quotes Lennox notes. That ours is not the first generation to face some kind of severe threat to our lives and wellbeing but unlike many previous generations we tend to think of these kinds of threats as things of the past and a personal safety as our God. Given right like Louis Dr. Lennox also uses our collective shock. When bad things happen to point out problems with atheism for Richard Dawkins the kind of suffering caused by pandemics? Well it's to be expected. Since in his view quote there is at bottom. No design no purpose. No Evil No good. Nothing but blind pitiless indifference. He see in the universe. According to Dawkins some people are GonNa get hurt. Other people are going to get lucky. And you won't find any rhyme or reason in it thus as Lyndyk says for the committed and thoughtful atheists moral outrage is absurd the so called problem of evil whether moral or natural dissolves into the pitiless indifference of uncaring matter. Of course most people even committed thoughtful way. I just can't live this way much less. Say it out loud still. It's impossible to derive comfort or hope from atheism without contradicting the world view that it implies in contrast while moral evil natural disasters and diseases like Kobe. Nineteen do pose a very real challenge to Christian. Believe that this universe was created and is governed by a good God within the Christian Story. Itself is an answer to that challenge. She the universe is not the way it's supposed to be humans. Were not the only part of creation effected by the fall. Nature itself was fractured by that. Same Event Lennox says as Romans. Eight describes creation was subjected to futility the Greek word for futility and ineffectiveness means something that has not achieved the goal for which it was designed but our current state is not praise. God the end of the story through the suffering death and resurrection of Christ a process has been inaugurated by which not only humans but the rest of creation also will be rescued from the effects of the fall as Dr Lennox says a Christian is not a person who solved the problem of suffering but one who has come to love and trust the God who has suffered for them. If you're dealing with doubts and questions about God's goodness because of the krona virus or you know someone who is this book by Dr Lennox whereas God and a corona virus world will help and this month? I'd love to send you a copy as a thank you for any gift of any amount to breakpoint the Colson Center. Come to breakpoint dot org slash Lennox breakpoint dot org slash L. E. N. N. axe next Wednesday Dr Lennox will be my guest on the breakpoint podcast. You don't WanNa miss it for breakpoint. I'm John Stonestreet.

Emotional Intelligence: How EQ Helps People to Succeed in Meaningful Work (Part 1)
"Every reveal so to speak is unique and everybody's results are unique so before they even get their results bag I think it's really important to provide an understanding of what emotional intelligence is and what actually is being measured here yes yes I am and I'm so thankful to be here to talk about this topic I'm very passionate about and I believe it affects everything that we spoke with Edith Richards in August Twenty nineteen in Arlington Virginia motion and to handle interpersonal relationships with empathy today we welcome back Edith Richards she is the founder and executive coach at other let's turn work meaningful for meaningful work is the future of work most everyone knows what I q means rigs type indicator of which you are a certified practitioner and you assessed my E. N. T. P. Myers remembering the results are stagnant this is a snapshot of a moment in time that's what it is why it is important and how we can use it to make our work and workplace experiences positive and meaningful and the actions they boldly took to make it all happen you'll also meet esteemed and nationally recognized thought leaders who were helping people like you it is the intelligence quotient a score derived from several standardized tests to measure a purse intelligence but few people in the world people who overcame great odds you'll discover what sparked them how they explored work opportunities the strategies that they employ to ensure a career success top career and a subject matter expert unemotional intelligence in this first part of a two part episode she helps us to take on emotional intelligence richards welcome back to the tight rope thanks thanks for having me Dan so when we last spoke you described for our listeners the Myers the perception to emotional intelligence and I should add that you are a certified practitioner of emotional intelligence as well Dan smolen our mission on this podcast is to help you realize your dreams of doing meaningful work here you'll meet and be inspired by amazing develop works skill experience and leadership and sees opportunity from a changing world so that your beautiful work dreams turn into reality to get why don't you describe for our listeners what emotional intelligence is so the term emotional intelligence became popularized by Briggs type and you took me through how it affects my preferences for work in other pursuits now you're back today and we're going to shift our Daniel Goldman's book emotional intelligence and why it can matter more than Iq but the concept of emotional intelligence isn't a new one in we do as human beings and absolutely affects what year here to talk about which is meaningful work so to get US started today we know what each means that is the quotient of emotional intelligence which measures our ability to be aware of control and express them From Washington DC. This is the tight rope I'm your host. The latter part of the Twentieth Century Society was was fixated on measurement and scientific data and while in many sectors bill is the case the social sciences are starting to catch up so such things as behavior and emotion are recognized as crucial to our functioning and the people who are successful in these areas of relationship building and coping with stress effectively are the ones who end up being the most success aspel both personally and professionally and in terms of the emotional insult intelligence assessment I use I use one called the the inventory and he believed that emotional intelligence is made up of a series of skills and attitude so such things as empathy and self awareness which many people equate with emotional intelligence. But there's also impulse control assertiveness stress management flexibility and a skill you I which was which was conceived by the American Israeli psychologist Reuven Bar and he actually came up with the term E. Q. or emotional quotient back in the nineteen eighties when he was working on his dissertation and he was pondering the question why are some people able to to achieve success in life with only modest intellectual abilities and those with superior intellect don't achieve such great success yeah and so so years later he developed this instrument that's now known as the bar own model of Eq- which again stands for emotional closure reality testing which is actually what we were just talking about before we started recording which is looking at the external world an external data for dialogue between between US sure but I'll if I I should mention that before before we met here today I asked you to do some pre work a strength the more it's apt to become a liability so one thing I promote with using e. q. effectively as balanced and we're going to talk more about it really is rather than what we wish or fear it to be and in all of the skills and attitudes are separate but they do overlap and there's fifteen of them uh-huh Q. isn't steady hit changes throughout our lives and it should change with development and skill building I q on the other this when we we get results Dan Okay so you've teed that up what our listeners will probably figure out if they heard edith from last else you will be compared to norm group with one hundred being the average and the scores that are above one ten or high range yeah they're really measuring two very different things so Iq or intelligent question measuring our cognitive ability are analytic influence the way we perceive an express ourselves develop and maintain social relationships cope with challenges and use emotional information in handed stagnant and it pretty it's pretty much said in in late adolescence so we also think of people with high accuses you know that's a really they're grouped under five general themes I guess the follow up question to this how does hue differ from IQ purpose is wrapped around social responsibility helping our listeners but also being genuinely helpful in my interactions Oakland rational abilities e. q. as it relates to the bar owned model is described as a set of emotional and social skills that great thing these these folks on wow it's great to have a high IQ but this is not necessarily the case with with E. Q. The more you over meaningful way now both the Iq and the e q r sport on similar scales so So Dan when you see when you see your results how courage ourselves to do better and we often saw really vexing problems were forced to do it that's made me optimistic on the podcast over to you take us through my assessment and what you learned about my emotional intelligence but I still like to think of this as a as elements do you feel most secure in and if you could share a bit about how you've used these and why they've been affected for you how have they controlled Ah yeah absolutely I mean they yeah they could they can come across as overly preachy or like a martyr you know at the same time that responsible and in the years I've known you Dan I've observed you've demonstrated an extremely well developed social conscious the second one would be empathy and a lot of that came out of my work recruiter I was there to serve tends to look like for somebody who's showing up with a lot of this I mentioned earlier that it can become a liability of if a strength is overdone oh because this is such a strength of yours I can't tell you you know Dan we stop being so socially responsible that's that's not going to be helpful for you I see is she's taking over this podcast to do a review of my E. Q. Assessment so I'm GonNa so with this what do you think that might show up ass an overage of social responsibility yes also great elements there but let's talk for a moment about some of the three elements that don't come quite as naturally for you which is a to a lot of people ironic in these This topic times we live in is optimism you know and every blogs now in fact you build a career on it so you know I you know you worked as an advocate for environmentally conscious products and services and hey you're meaningful work advocate so we don't really get much more socially responsible than that now overdone social responsibility so what that certainly my clients but ultimately it was the talent that I place that I cared most about I wanted to make sure that they were successful and I think the third one are a those are great ones so let me talk a little bit about what each of these mean in terms of the assessments social responsibility it's your desire and ability yourself how do you connect with each would you put yourself in low mid or high range so before we go any further let's revisit this cocoon which e so stress tolerance is something that I've learned to do but it's not a natural thing and I am conscious of the fact that I need to dad feelings about myself but I think being oftentimes a perfectionist undervalue my contribution work on that that's the number one thing to a certain degree assertiveness and I'm not an introverted person but often the first one would be social responsibility which for listening to this podcast will probably be a validated I my sometimes I find that assertiveness can be difficult in a group Dynamic and it may be because other people were involved in they're trying to get their point across to willingly contribute to society and to the welfare of others so essentially you're showing care and concern for the group and the community being environmentally of that norm group and the scores that are below ninety on the bottom quarter of the norm group they're low range so but here's where things really get interesting with Eq- the that element can be boost or better balanced with social responsibility so when I hear you optimism empathy how I portray myself to others it's so insightful what I'm hearing you say here in all of this actually came up as I was instead we want to take a look at another element where you know it's it's not quite as much of a strength and talk about ways behavior and how I interact with people the third thing is self regard probably to the least degree of these three I I don't have trustingly enough this is one of the four elements of emotional intelligence that is most indicative of our overall wellbeing so we there have been major stressors in my family and moves and school and changes in circumstances listen you're not wanting to step on them or maybe sometimes you can't help yourself that's that's another area that I have to be mindful of of my own well number one is going to be stress tolerance let go something that I've known about myself most of my life I battled anxiety since I was a little kid so the other ones we have self regard we have a self actualization which is setting meaningful goals and working towards sleepwear love our our self confidence comes from it's the ability and tendency for you to both like yourself and to have confidence in yourself yeah I had you listened to a podcast where I explained what the Qa assessment measures and explained each of the fifteen elements and asked you to assess but optimism is often misunderstood element because it's not about thinking things are going to turn out for the best no matter what and it's not which is optimism and we know that optimism is the the ability to have a positive outlook on life even in the face of adversity with each other and also how you can use your strengths to to work on the weaker areas yeah so with that said we're seeing hurtful and destructive things about yourself so I think in in this explanation you can kinda start to see how these elements overlapped getting through your your your assessment results All of those we can we can talk about talk about that we could probably talk for a long time about it as you're looking through do you notice any surprises no coach so you needed to your success professionally or personally so we'll take the three what I think are the strongest skilled attributes yes achieving them we have interpersonal relationships which is wanting to have good relationships with others seeking out professional and her sudden pivots at the work place that I had that were often difficult to deal with I was Undiagnosed for many many years and it took a real toll on me posted I write with the words our best days lie ahead that's not cliche I really believe that even in difficult times we somehow and not looking at these results as something that's necessarily negative you know donal friendships networking wanting to get out there interacting with other people and then another one that you mentioned as a as a strength which is national expression which is your year ability to express yourself both verbally and non verbally and you were you're very way to start the conversation so when I'm looking at there's another another surprise to me here what's that which was emotion uh well it's probably like some of the activists that I often encounter who become very binary it's my way or the highway wins I could've done better could've done more why didn't I do this would've showed a could I fight that too it's not saying that I don't deal with it let's take a look at your results occurring your assessment results here so I'm just going to show you now because I have twenty pages of data here essentially you're respecting yourself for who you are you're looking at yourself and all the with all the good traits and you know all the the negative traits and you can see and obviously we don't want to we don't have time to go into all of that so let's just take a look at the snapshot of Your Results Right here okay got it in terms of balance and that was why I asked you to identify your top three and your your bottom three so that we can at least sure yeah that's that's the thing about these results it really does require kind of an understanding of what's being measured here and it requires con still say you know what Gosh Darn it I like myself the way I am so that would be a healthy self regard and right there An- I got you kind of hit the nail on the head there with a lot of these things. Would you be able to kind of summarize what's happening in each of these buckets text to be able to look at this accurately it can be very overwhelming to to look at this it's very easy to just look at the numbers uh-huh and say oh I you know I I should be above average and all of these things whatever but what I find is a more helpful way to view this information is too yeah no just repeating positive affirmations every day the it's more of a realistic approach to life it's the ability to stop thinking mm-hmm but just to to recap kind of self regard is really where I wanNA focus here because that's such an important element and that's but it's probably a three attributes that probably are a most aware of that we have to focus on and improve sort of my own outlook and US and when there's more than ten points difference between a the scores on the elements there that can show up as an area for the high who who on that and you know when you're when you're looking at that and how that might play into another one that you mentioned here was was asserted on and you expect whether it's conscious or unconscious for others to be aware of how you're feeling you may be more comfortable expressing treble no I don't think so but you said something interesting that maybe my ability to express myself isn't always being read by others and you can correct me if I'm wrong here you might be unaware inattentive to how your your tone of voice or your word choice of your writer you're bringing up a really good point here too that this is going to require a lot of time and effort to digest because this is just so much information here acting with a person on an individual level which is you know empathizing with the individual instead of the group does that does that ring true for you so in a coaching situation we would talk about ways that we can boost that assertiveness how can you become more assertive okay so so I have all of this written down for you to and then a couple other points yes especially when we're looking at that in terms of interpersonal relationships which is one of the big areas identified earlier as as and the needs of the group and that social responsibility empathy is looking at an individual's needs so when these two are you are not a well balanced and that in your case social responsibility is higher than empathy you may look at your decision making in terms of what's best for the group the larger group of people before considering individuals needs before under some actions that you can take to better balance that with with emotional expression look at the emotional expression I am not at all surprised by that I'm a lifelong writer I had never had difficulty expressing myself especially in writing being one of the big four as I call them your expression is higher than the interpersonal relationships and this may mean you them because they're both falling under the what we call the interpersonal realm of emotional intelligence one essentially is looking at the group we sometimes deal with people and I am very expressive person and I think sometimes conscious yeah of interest here social responsibility an empathy you mentioned those two elements before and a really easy way to look at so many elements here of emotional intelligence just with that very statement you're touching on the assertiveness Europe touching on empathy and or body language may come across two or affect other people I I can see relevance okay clear unconsciously there's May subtly deceive us they're projecting that they understand but they really don't lots of feelings than than than directives so your your expression is is very high but the assertiveness maybe is not quite as high as emotional intelligence is the relationship between optimism and self regard okay yeah and I say this okay well let me ask you a let me ask you a question about that Ben is are there are there times that that's got you into I'm trying to process perhaps it does allowed to go back to it at some point and kind of think that's kind of a hard concept yeah I it's it's a tough one and isn't always get through that's a difficult thing I think for anybody yeah and and it's you're you're touching on gotten better at it but I think that's a dynamic because we don't want to disappoint anyone then I don't know what the heck you're talking about Gotcha AH I don't relate to it people don't want to be seen as rude so they don't confront you yeah and I think because of that sometimes the message accomplishments over the years have factored into your success so people who are showing up with higher optimism than self regard steps needed to to boost the self regard to make better balanced with with optimism and some of these other elements to and because of something that you just mentioned a few moments ago about not not thinking about how how your skills I tend to forget to factor in how their expertise and their skills and their you know I I tend to promote using strengths to to do that and using your emotional expression using your social responsibility air to the other thing and this is probably the last point today I wanted to to mention here because there's so many other things to talk about the to to boost those things those are things that come absolutely naturally to you and they they don't come naturally to everybody so turn it into something that's fortuitous positive every reveal so to speak is unique and everybody's results use them to pro yourself I would say yeah winning two results for your clients intelligence is and what actually is being measured here and not looking at these results as are unique so before they even get their results back I think it's really important to provide an understanding of what emotional I didn't see that coming can you describe for us how some of your clients take that initial shock and then results can change and the the results are the scores are not always indicative of truths would imagine the first thing that happens is a bit of shock there there has to be a lot of validation but there s to also be I would think ranks can help them to achieve success in the future I see yeah so again this is some some actions are they accurate to you and it's a method of having a conversation where somebody hopefully feels comfortable enough to the they're saying they do because they don't want to deal with Yeah Yeah D- do you find yourself doing that so one of the questions do like to ask people is I usually do ask them you know are you surprised by anything but do they struck me that the need for E. Q. has never been greater we have a society become tribal and that our validity measures throughout the assessment to to check to see if you know somebody is answering consistently something that's necessarily negative you know remembering the results are stagnant this is a snapshot of a moment in time the in to bring in to bring up some of the things they've been struggling with and talk about addressing them in in a safe space where we can start to work on them together is that because unlike IQ where it's pretty cut and dry dysfunction spills into the workplace all the time why do you think hugh is important today how it turns out the process requires a lot of honesty yes it does now there are speaking about that there things like that and as the administrator I will get I'll get hangs so to speak if somebody comes up in there there's something that just doesn't look I think the first thing is not sure I can put this in one word but taking the time to process a lot of UH wealth my mother's listening and rest easy mom right so when I started work on producing this episode and how they how they can help or hinder each other to the person just described to you a real person my my organization and the long term health now I'm thinking of this in terms of hiring practices right there's some inaccuracy in the data or if somebody somebody's answers are are not consistent so I didn't have any of that with you Dan so no worries there have an idea of what impulse control means but it's actually delaying or resisting your impulse to act or to say something and we all bring this organization to a new level of aptitude and opportunity excellent so I'm hearing I'm hearing a couple of different let me answer your question this way to can you think of someone who embodies exceptional leadership and then think about the industry understanding your own strengths and weaknesses. How are you going to make those hard decisions how are you going to know what's needed here multinational company Paul Polman is my hero because he's changed what it means to be a forward Joel qualities that that person displays yeah so would you care to share some individual qualities of that person needed that it if we think about what sets truly successful people apart we think about qualities that reflect emotional intelligence so let me action for the betterment of the organization and quite a lot of awareness emotional self-awareness here too because without that's such a great question there there's a lot of thought that emotional intelligence is more important to Iq in I personally think there's some some some validity you think about someone who has a very active impulse control which is what you're describing here they take the time to think about
