Vaccinations Clear the Way for Vermont to Lift COVID-19 Restrictions
"Vaccination campaign. Not only did we lead the United States, but Vermont is now a global leader and vaccinations to defeat Covid 1980% of the states eligible population. Those 12 and over have received at least one dose. The White House has touted Vermont success as it pushes to have the whole country reached 70% vaccination by July. 4th Liam Elder Connors from member station Vermont. Public Radio joins us now. Good morning, Liam. Good morning. What does it mean for Vermont to drop all covid 19 restrictions? Well, things were already somewhat loosened here in this state. You know, the masking mandate had already been relaxed a little bit. But now there are no limits on gatherings or capacity caps for events and restaurants, and any masking and distancing requirements are now gone. And this wasn't a completely unexpected change. These restrictions were going away by July 4th. But when the states saw that The vaccination rate was going up so quickly, Governor Phil Scott said. Once we have that 80% mark, he would drop all restrictions. And so we hit that yesterday and here's the governor dropping those restrictions at a press conference. I'm lifting all remaining state pandemic restrictions in state of emergency will formally and at midnight. June 15th tomorrow. And here's why. Because it's safe to do so. And it's safe because Vermonters have done their part to keep the virus from spreading. And stepping up to get vaccinated should say the only real exceptions are for some federal rules like masking is still required on public transportation. And as we heard there, Liam, the governor is also letting the state of emergency expire in Vermont. What is the effect of that change?

"Calvin welcome to the mar tech podcast. Thanks for having pleasure to have you as a guest. I appreciate you reaching out and honestly appreciate you for multiple reasons. One the subject that you've brought up his one that i feel like a lot of people wanna talk about an honestly aren't really sure how to talk about. And it's how to create space for minorities and marketing. And so most everybody that reaches out to me to be a guest on the show whilst talk about dsp's or software or branding and you actually have a real world topic in the real world. Things that are happening today happens to be the one year anniversary of the unfortunate and tragic murder of george floyd so feel like today's the best day to talk about minorities and your experience as a black man in technology. Tell me about why isn't important for marketers specifically to think about creating space for minorities in tekken and marketing. It will thanks for the question that it is unfortunate. That today has to be day right. The one year anniversary of a person's death but sometimes these opportunities present themselves the have a conversation about these things even though it's not easy from a marketer's perspective. You have to understand that i've been doing this in tech since ninety six about twenty six years and it still surprise so i go. Wow guys in tech loses some form of new building. It's happening having been around that period of time and so when it comes to marketing and what things look like marketing kinda shapes the view the way that people see products way people see industries. I would say now if you think of the tech industry because so much worse outsource now you think india you think silicon valley those types of things but there is an enormous black population. I myself have a group of. I think it's eleven or twelve hundred people. now. I haven't checked lately but called blackman coating was just kinda codifies a group of individuals just to say. Hey we're here and they have all these amazing talents and there's no space right now for that to even exist because you have all of these kinds of disparate individuals who may work for companies. But there's no groups are. There's no organizations that support that so martyrs creating space for that to even make it a reality would be similar to anything else that you see didn't exist until you saw it on. Tv sorted ads. Things like that so it helps to shape the dynamics and it helps to bring more balanced to thanks. There's just different things at different cultures. Bring any industry
Charles M. Blow on the Debt We Owe
"I wanna start off talking about your memoir because in it you write about the term bisexual and you say that technically it's correct for you but that you do not embrace or use that word you cited it as having derisive connotations so that was back in two thousand fourteen. Do you still feel that way about that word. No i. I was using it win. A memoir was published. I mean i talked about how freighted it is. But i also. I don't say why we run away from labels are worried about labels like it's not a big thing like i'm gonna i'm gonna have the life i'm going to have anyway. Whatever you call is not going to change how i live and how i love a bit so i don't find any. I'm not caught up in the label as much or tied to it or feel like you know if you don't get my label right. I'm going to be offended. Listen do whatever you want to do. Because i'm going to do what i wanna do but i find. It is an easy way to describe my attractions. I mean i think that like for all the progress we've made in terms of like awareness understanding sexualities. We've done a astonishingly poor job at demystifying bisexuality. There's stigma that still remain right there signals. That may remain and also the idea of bisexuality. Actually people take as a challenge to absolute binary identities the idea that someone could move could be fluid and move in and out of an identity is a challenge to the people who are singularly attracted to men or women is incredible challenge to the binary construct and so people want to say it. Doesn't you must be on the path to something you buy now and get five years. That's the three whatever you know how people think about it. So i understand those things but the assumption that if someone tells you that this is identity and use completely denied that is incredibly offensive. Because you're basically saying the person is

I'm going through. Oh gosh wow okay hang on let me show my puerto here and then i'm gonna describe outdoors. Any birds die. You know. I do hear some mangy senate dogs in the distance but i appear to be in a very disgusting looking trailer park as a whole row of single wides laid out here in front of me in various states of extreme disrepair. I'm standing right in front of one heinous off. The roof is sagging a windows. I don't know if they've ever been cleaned. There's nobody around outside here. So i guess i'm just gonna head up to this closest one here and given a knock and see somebody's around you can learn a little bit about this dimension. Hopefully this whole dimension isn't like this. I don't know steps here and knock on the. Oh just just swung open okay. Anybody home hello There's no answer peaked. My head in. Here oh i think oh oh he hit it. Just hit me as a really not a great smell okay. But i'm looking inside. I think i see jack stroke. But he's is he. Hey are you. Okay hey oh. I think something may be wrong here. Okay the stroh sauce lifeless body. that's a still feels a little warm. Were where did it's not war. Remain alive but you should know. Kill them several days. Okay hollow graham jack strobe. I didn't hear you activate. No that wasn't shown. I watch the the crime. I read newer tech novels that the murderer often returns zia the crime. Not okay i for the first person i think back now. Okay therefore you are okay. And i called the rate first off not a murderer. I have never set foot in this trailer nor this entire trailer park before today before moments ago all those as our exactly whatever say. I'm sure it is okay. This is also. You appear to be strobe are you. Some kind of artificial. Intelligence officials don't l. k Are you actually gesture jober. Do you just look and sound exactly like Been hologram many of his memories as his last checkpoint which unfortunately was a month ago. But i do have most of his time doubt for mary's face plus knowledge thing. That's great. what should i call you. You can call me jack. Strove find jack strobe. I'm just gonna head out I don't think there's anything i can do here. Her the knock on the door opened up now if you ever year murderer i don't think this guy here even got murdered. Well then first of all. I'm going to need some facts first of all you name effects your name. What's your name name is max. Max max was that show for max. Essential for anything. Your names just. Max max can be bothered with more syllables. That's fine you over that one. The call yes. Jack strove the whole graham gastro as natural checks out. That's right. he's not. Actually jackson object strobe. Is this guy here. the right. So here's the thing. I was going to ask you if you had any sort of connection to the deceased but it would appear that you already. At least his name. How do you know the deceased name. Sir what'd you say. Your name was max. What's that short for. Max wait now. we did. This dance already. Haven't we the charles the hotel coup. You see what i'm saying. Pal is it. Max how do you know this. Man right yeah. How do i know this guy. When i did say earlier that i've never set foot on this trailer park nor in this very strong for yourself. That's what i told. Jester polygram here. So obviously i met jetro outside of the trailer park somewhere else. We used to work together was we were. Coworkers workers bud me first of all. Where am i. Man is second of all my name actually. This is probably seventh of all. Because i've done a few things. But since i came in here but regardless of what number it is the name is dirk dirk pflueger. Oh excellent detective pflueger perfect yet. Detective works too friendly thing. But you know what i can be bad cop. It's alright this is great a respected member of the local community. I'm so glad you're here because obviously what's happened here is this hologram has confused me for somebody else. I've never been in here before. I was coming here to meet the locals and to check out the local scene and i knocked on the door and it was open and this guy was just here unfortunately deceased so blessed with all of the deceased memories up to about a month ago it's loosely. Drew that max of jack. That's lease a lot onset. They were in a sales. I should say we were stable organization together and jack myself basically stole a bunch of clients from match max mad thing not a theft investigator or fraud investigator. Really a good thing. I'm not any of those. I only specified justin murder. So even if you confess to like any number of crimes today doesn't matter anyway. You're dead continue. So in addition to seal the number of max clients the best terms. Well nothing illegal about that. Last part i did not murder him though. Listen archie gonna like look for evidence or something. I think you'll find that. There's no evidence here that i committed any crime. Well first of all sunny. I wanna let you now something you probably already as everybody knows the first three rules of motor investigation. That's right location. Location location those the rules of real estate and your in the location that i'm in right now which means you're on the location of the dead body. I just wanted to touch base with everyone in my location before i started investigating my location. That's right rule number two location now. We'll get to number three. After i finished examining the location. Is this murder investigation. Is this real estate. It'd be surprised. I often the crossover. Now here's the thing sunny boy. I'm gonna need you to give the facts. Jack. that's right. the facts two of 'em specifically on facts. I wanted to give me something. That's not if that that's something that delight. i want to give me true truths. I don't wanna give me lie. Doesn't have to necessarily be in that order. In fact it's a lot more fun if it's not hanging you said santa boy and you also said jack are you talking. Which one of us were you talking to all right jack in the colloquial sense your jack. Not jack okay. It's also a little confusing because he keeps popping his hologram around the room. Kind of just seemingly randomly chevy stranded like throw me off balance. I appears you are armed straight. I on on low point a gun at your right now. Hey click sound that. We all heard just now wasn't enough to see new. Don't as me bro. listen. I'm gonna slowly take off my backpack through and weapons. What i would add. Is there for self defense. Only i'm setting it down. You can see had no other weapons. I'm not holes during anything we lift up my shirt. Oh wow in fact. I would've asked feed and not do that actually. Wow that's okay. well. I don't really need to see the bag now. Obviously not a threat out law to facts and in fact that's right son sunny boy sunny jack sunny. Just sorry i'll stop saying can fusing because he's jaclyn. You're jack you know what i'm saying. Third base. i'll call you jeremy. You okay with that max Short sounds great. Go ahead jeff. Okay sure fact number one. I am from the city of seattle. Sounders made up but go on fact or maybe not fact number two. I'm recording this whole conversation. That's felony Fact or possibly not fact number three is that i am a professional wrestler right. Now i'm not gonna guess which one of those is alive. Make sure that's clear. I'm just entering all of these into evidence. Now if any of this ends up being used in court and proving a detriment to the prosecution case you'll be fine and prison basically ally investigate that age. Old tactic called entrapment background. Check him and find the wasn't special wrestler. Say wow boylans like honestly can be any number of those. He's real good at this game. But here's what i wanna know maxi boy. That's right. jeremy. Mr travis boy. Here's the thing. What is that hold on the refrigerator. Handle this yeah. I see it as a smudge. A duck smudge looks like some kind of greece on the inside of the refrigerator handle jack but you know anything about this snow. I literally just walked in. Jack jack jack. The one that goes and i can see i around paper. Well that's is that it's not gonna happen any then let me just skirt that different part of the handle it all right Listen to him just showed up here. Maybe we should like. I dunno go to the neighbors and see if any of them saw anything well i was going to make a bit of a more thorough investigation. The contents of this fridge but a pretty much everything. I need to know by now. This cottage cheese shouldn't be this keller. I'm interested in knowing the neighbors of scene because they saw you coming. Maybe they saw going. You know what. I'm saying you probably. That's all right well. I'm just going to walk out the front door here. It's important to get a good smell surroundings. Hey wait a minute. That dollar game. Follow us out of the trailer. Whatever did you like activate upon his death. You knew how long he's been dead for would add as two and a half days. Couldn't have been meek. Because i just showed up. Well can you prove your absence grooving negative. That's another classic law enforcement technique. Ask him to prove a negative. They never can just like you can't right now. Say what's up nope. That's a raccoon. That's just the shoe. i think that's i'm sure that if you speak to the neighbors and the other surrounding trailers none of them will have seen me lough our next door. Who don't mind me interrupting you sir. But obviously you're man coming in and out of your neighbors house recently in the last couple of days does he have. Is this your watch.

You look a lot like him for like old wrinkly and gray suspicion seems a little suspicious itself them at. Can't you see that man in there. Who seems to be slightly transparent. It's probably just the drapes obviously has long. Yeah okay so you noticed. I think that's another hologram. Oh i just madrid. Give people the benefit of the third a bother. You say you need to your. He's a fraudster. What's reported to the landscaping crimes. Yeah that's right. This guy only does murder so there. We should be back with you in about a month now to the business at hand. This particular grizzly marta. The man inside that trailer right there. He's dead. I know crazy right now. She's still watching us through the window. I mean it's a big window. I you don't usually see bay-windows like that on mobile homes you do you. Hey you seem like you're living your best life. I don't think he's living any life. I'm telling you he's a hologram. There you can do it. Sturdy admits that he is allah. Graham who's gonna take me flesh and blood human or these holograms whole auster. That's right also. Have you taken a look at this long. It really does look needs mode does not my problem. That's landscaping crafts departments problem. Now i want you to really grasp and just take in the gravity situation. Meant that gentleman is dead. His goose is cooked. Yeah i understand. Ganders been pandered i understand. I'm the one who discovered the body. Now you just you discover the body. That is a real fun way to say it's not fun. It wasn't fun it's reached in there. I don't understand how you didn't seem to notice it at all just walked right in there. Listen here sonny. I've smelled death more times than you could ever dream okay. It's dark and it's changed me as a person. Listen we got to get ourselves back into that trailer right now and investigate the premises just a little bit more. Okay fine now really wreaks it yet. You heard mashed always gets his man and you sir. Are that man. Unless as i suspect you yourselves are in fact another hologram chest. Why why have. I just like that. Oh well that's the easy part of police works on terminating. Whether or not a person standing right in front of you is or is not a hologram. Listen i didn't murder. This guy doesn't look like he's been murdered. I don't see any evidence of actual trump shoot. I should look at the body lipstick on his collar. On my caller. What kind of color lipstick do you wear. I wear lipstick This trailer is packed to the gills with holographic projectors apparently surely there's also like some kind of cameras recording system like surveillance footage. You could just access and see what exactly what happened at good league jack here myself. Change the password since the last check was the face for this. This this this this right here. He can see that says my secret crush thoughts. I thought at every crush. I've ever had as jack in there. Were a lot of and none of them were the right answer. Well let me This is when the deductive powers that i developed over many years of training. Come into play. Hang on let me try something go that was it. Oh what do i. It was orange crush. That's not even secret. That's like the most popular flavor gone with grape strawberry. Those are secret. No one knows about those terrible hen. Man i mean i know it. Wasn't you technically orange crush. Well all right now time. For the moment of truth we're going to hit that play button and watch. That was the wrong button. That does that well the fact that you were the one who pointed me to this file tells me some you you're on the right value. Hit the wrong button. All right five like little. Try mother mom. That's a lady. I mean that's your mom or lady than you'll ever be what is happening now. Did you get the wrong file again. Somehow i guess that's our trailer jetro. I really need to call more often. Looks real excited to see jack. Oh wow oh they're just going right into it right into it. Oh berkeley i thought standards were a bit high o. k. o. But everyone seems to stop moving. She fall asleep well on top of him kissing and then moving to see my flesh twitching. I can barely see that. Most of your body is covered by mrs lugar. There ever got a romantic as. I'm starting to think not hit fast forward. Just hours of detective. Luger's mom laying on top of jack strove. She is a heavy sleeper. She moves she so slow down. Look or well. I mean how do those count is usually an presumably. They don't usually end with him. Being smothered to death. We stopped short death now. I'll be honest. I probably should have recognized that purview. When i first walked in here i've never known another woman to wear. How would you. How did you make a perfume smell in this place. I've got the nose of links or a similar creature. Obviously i did not murder this man. I reluctantly agree that this is probably go well. You would be. If i hadn't cut you in a blatant bald faced lie directly to law enforcement's that's right earlier on you told me. This whole conversation was being recorded. And i know that's a felony and you don't seem like you got the guts to actually do that sir. Unfortunately i'm going to have to take you in downtown ri- right okay. When are we just step outside.

That's probably a good idea to push the button on my remote here puerto goes to another dimension. Which is where i'm from. I guess i could have mentioned earlier. Would have been a pretty solid alibi anyway. I'm gonna head back to my own dimension a bit of a mess. Sorry about that. Yes i am. You've got a lot on your shoe. What was screaming allah right. You can hear that's right. Yeah you the audio portal connection there. So no how right is a porta was opening up. You told me that my excavator was here right. Uh-huh and what did you call it about.

Unfortunately in the other dimension pflueger met his demise at the very large pause of a seemingly. Rabid bob cat. Oh my wow. I think we'll have to be a little more careful when we're opening the portal. You think wow yeah. I feel bad about this. You should feel bad. It was distressing.

And thus maybe they're solving on a slow but progressive way. Problem of speech jump,

President Trump's 2017 Travel Restrictions Were on Countries Listed by Obama; Not a Muslims Ban
"The reason they were banned. During those travel restrictions were because they were from a list of seven countries. Seven countries that were put on that list because of terrorism problems by one who wait for it, Wait for it. Barack Obama. If it was a Muslim ban and not a banned from certain terror supporting countries. We're having a problem vetting people in Than any Muslim would have been allowed in the United States again to the Liberals. This thing I'm just asking you to do an exercise and logic here. If Trump's travel restrictions targeted Muslims and they said, you are banned that if you are Muslim, you would not be allowed in. That is not true. You're Muslim. You were allowed into the United States. It was not a Muslim bed. It was a travel restriction from seven countries that the Obama the Obama administration had categorized as having issues with their vetting process because of their problems with terrorism. You doubt me? I always come at the receipts, folks, I'm not gonna waste your time. Here's an observer article. Michael, say NATO January 30th 2017. Headline Obama administration helped make Trump's Muslim travel ban possible quote as opposed to being an anomaly induced by Trump's presidency. The band was set in motion by Obama's administration. In December of 22 US 15 Obama signed into law the Visa Waiver Improvement and Terrorists Travel Prevention Act. Which designated Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia as areas of concern. One of those countries have in common with the Trump travel ban. Or a Muslim ban, according to leftist lunatics. It's the exact same countries he used to restrict travel from the ones the Obama administration had designated as having problems with terrorism.
Rep. Byron Donalds on the Harms of Critical Race Theory
"Children were at home. And parents had an opportunity to really see what was happening in the classroom. You know, there's it's been probably about 10, maybe 15 years now that the public school system basically has done away with homework, kids don't bring homework home anymore. They don't bring the textbooks home, so your kid comes home and you're kind of like How was school? It was good, and then they go on to play. Um and you never really get any other detailed information will now kids are at home and welcome. Parents were able to see this. And when you can see it, you start to see some of the things that are coming out in curriculum that are coming out in classes. Obviously, we have the standards of kids now recording it and then showing that in social media and so now has come to the floor, But you're right about critical race theory. It's been around for a very long time. It's actually was really comes from critical theory. And all critical theory was And is it was trying to figure out understanding the framework of this country at that time from an economic perspective, What is the way that you can actually in in introduced cultural, Marxism or ideological Marxism to trying to shift the political ideology of the country and really doing academic analysis of economics and with critical race areas, an academic analysis Of race in America through law through court decisions and through economics. That's really what the genesis of critical race. There he is, Um you know, the sad part is that is that you know if you want to have an academic theory, do that in the in the do that in the halls of higher, Ed, Don't do that in K 12 classrooms you want to go through and really think that stuff through let adults think that through have the opportunity to sit down digest history. Go into the necessary levels of detail. In order to have a real thorough discussion, Understanding don't distill it down into the oppressor oppressed. Models and mindset and drop that into K told classrooms or into our military. That is the problem. That's why it's really going up to what it is today.
There Is Weighing Evidence of the Wuhan Lab Leak Theory
"Don't accept the premise of a faulty question. Mike Pompeo shut that right down, He said it quite clearly. I don't accept the premise of your question. That there's a scarcity of evidence leaning towards the lab league theory. I don't accept that at all. The evidence is everywhere. I just told you what the evidence is, folks again. I know if you're a liberal listening, you have a you know, a six ft wall of lead between you your cerebral cortex and facts. I know it's Impenetrable. I know facts are like kryptonite for you. You're like liberal Kryptonians. I get that. But stop saying things like there's no evidence the evidence is everywhere. How did just ask the questions? Notice. I've been very clear. I don't make dis positive statements if I can't back them up. Do I have conclusive evidence? This came from a lab Mozilla public. I do not Do I have evidence leading me to believe that? That is the likely hypothesis? I do. Do you have evidence indicating that an alternate hypothesis? All that came from nature is true. You do not Therefore, weighing the evidence reason Rationality logic weighing the evidence, a sane person would say the lab leak looks most most likely.
The Similarity of Chinese Communist Propaganda and Our Lying Media
"And I'm reading this piece in The Wall Street Journal. And it's about Chinese Communist propaganda really applies to propaganda outfits throughout human history, Prov, the Soviet Union or whatever. And it was this fascinating piece by Perry Link called Beijing protests allegedly too much and it talks about how you have to learn to read. Communist propaganda from China and their media outlets. And when you learn to read a quote upside down, the stories make sense and I thought to myself, I'm sitting there. I'm always thinking of. You know what's a good, solid narrative for a show that ties things together today because we've got a lot of material to get to And I thought, Gosh, that said, Like Once we learn how to do what you know the citizens of China have had to do with their own media to read media reports upside down, We can finally start to get to the truth. Let me read you a quote from this Wall Street journal piece because it's very telling. And I want you to tell me something going to ask you up front. What is any different from are the Chinese propaganda from the Chinese Communist Party and state controlled media in China? What's different than our media here? Serious question After you. What's different. You have to employ the same tactic it to get to the truth to our lying media here. Hear from the piece called Beijing Protests allegedly too much quote. Many years ago. A distinguished Chinese writer Woo Zuzang explained to me that there is truth in Communist Party pronouncements, but you have to read them quote upside down. If a newspaper says the party has made great strides against corruption in Hannon And you know that corruptions recently been especially bad in and on. If you read about the heroic rescue of eight miners somewhere, you can guess that a mine collapse may have killed hundreds who aren't even mentioned. Learn to read the story upside down. Read upside down. There's a sense in which the official press never lies. It cannot lie. It has to tell you what the party wants you to believe. And if you can figure out the party's motive, which always exists. Then you have a sense of the
The Ridiculous Pseudo-Debates on Language by Liberals, Shown by HHS Sec. Becerra
"Check this out as Bokeria tries to defend this stupidity. Take a look. But would you at least admit calling a mom a birthing person? Could be offensive to some moms that they don't want to get. Like a happy birthing person card in mayor, Can you released admit that that term itself could be offensive to some moms? Center. I'll go back and take a look at the the terminology that was used and I'll get back to you. But again, if we're trying to be precise in the language that's used. Mom's a pretty good word. That's that's worked for a while, and I think that's pretty precise as well. It's pretty good Mom. Mom, Mother. Mama's worked pretty well for, you know, Ever since the inception of conscious human thought that word's been okay. I mean, everybody's pretty clear on what it means. There's no real confusion about who your mom is. And there is no berthing person in human history. It hasn't been a mom. I'm just going to throw that out there. I have 100% track record of success on the use of the word Mom, just saying But because the less engaged in a prolonged war on language These are the kind of Ridiculous pseudo debates we find ourselves in But why is the left doing this? Why this war on language? Folks. This is the important part of this and the takeaway. Don't just talk about stories because they're funny or their. I mean, although this is a ridiculous story, there's a reason and it's behind the tactics, the left users and if you can win the war on language that debates over before it starts, think about it right. If the left just randomly changes terms we've used for millennia. That have meant very clear things for hundreds of years, in a minimum that have meant many very clear things, and they change them at the flip of a switch, and anyone who fails to use that term is some kind of phobia phobic. It's the phone. Whatever you know, they throw it xenophobes transform Homophone. Whatever it may be, even though none of that's actually true the debates over before it starts

Affirmation to Release Emotional Pain, Letting Go of the Past
"Your affirmation for today. We'll help remind you that your past does not equal your future again. Feel like that sometimes but each day is a brand new day. It's a fresh start full of new experiences. And i want to share with you about a personal experience. I went through a really difficult time in my life as we all do and during this time it was really difficult for me to overcome the pain. I was experiencing. I felt stuck in that pain and it didn't seem like anything could uplift to me. The things i was normally interested in no longer brought me joy. This experience really rocked my world. It was as if one day i woke up and my whole world looked different so this event was really challenging for me and i was worried that i would just never feel like my life was back to normal for me. My normal and i know that it can feel like this these days of uncertainty and as we continue to go through a pandemic and you're dealing with regular day to day life which involves sometimes events that are beyond our control that can cause great grief. Regret pain remorse. What i found for myself is that he was so important. That i take extra care of myself and this is hard to do. When you're suffering. I found that it was really important that i put myself on a schedule where i wake up every day and i include movement and of course meditation. I also found that it was really important for me to eat well.

"Christina. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me billy. I'm looking forward is conversation. It's my favorite topics. That will have fun with. It will be fun. We'll be fun so for those that don't know you or much about personally b. m. tell us a little bit about yourself and personally b. m. short sure personally. The end has been around for over ten years. And we've kind of evolved with account based marketing. We've taken we take very niche approach. Hence the personal bart's typically people will say we're running an abm account based program. Were running with like maybe three hundred five hundred accounts. We usually only have about two to three dozen accounts and we're focused on accounts that are fitting the ict to a t. And have the greatest revenue growth opportunity and we work with tech Sas firms people with complex sales longer sales cycles six and seven figure deals and even companies in the logistics three pl space to either we focus on a couple of things win protect or expand key accounts and again. They're going to be the ones that have. The graven is greatest revenue growth potential and greatest expansion opportunities while awesome awesome. So how'd you get into you. Know how did you guys get into to doing this with personal. Abm yeah well. We started just Lincoln marketing originally with small businesses and consultants and we. We saw that account based marketing was coming about it. Hadn't really been given that buzzword that official title And we noticed that it was working on lincoln but it needed a spur. Special tweak to it needed an extra layer of relevance that personal layer not just relevant to the rank individual but to the actual person. So what matters most to them as a person as opposed to a buying committee organization or even their department
"first thing" Discussed on The All New Suze Orman's Women and Money
"Bitcoin so i think bitcoins at this point in time are just something that you should look at and wait and just don't be so in a hurry to invest in it right now and again. Did you hear me say in vest. I really do not want you to look at. Bitcoin is a currency. But i want you to look at it as an investment and again in my opinion i would be only investing with money that i could afford to lose otherwise i really would not do it. So that is my take on. Bitcoin's next stocks. I have to tell you. I'm still cautious about stocks. Now i get that the standard and poor's and the dow jones and everything is right around where it was and that were really inching at the high in everything. But i want to say something here as i've told you many many times the point of money. The goal of money is for you to be secure. And there's just something that's making me for. The past few months feel a little bit in secure about investing money in especially certain areas of the stock market. And we already saw that. Many stocks in the technology area got absolutely obliterated while other stocks absolutely went up and for those of you who invested all across the board and the vanguard total stock market index fund or etf. You've done relatively well. Oil has done incredibly well in my opinion. But just there's still something that's just stopping me from committing the twenty percent that i have sitting in cash that i liquidated a little bit ago just to wait to see if these markets were going to go down. Now truthfully you know. I expected that these markets would start to trend down starting around april and in the technology area in certain areas. That's exactly what happened now. They're starting to trend up belittle. And i don't have a problem with that and i'm not an investor where i look at something i go. Oh my god. I missed out on that. I wished i had done that. I want all of you to be very methodical in how you invest and i want you to be methodical not just from the financial end of it but i want you to be methodical in the emotional part of your being in terms of how you are investing because if you invest and you are nervous about it you're not sure then you. I promise you you will sell at the wrong time. You'll buy at the wrong time and again. That's not the goal of money so when it comes to investing investing is something for the long term. Something that you're gonna hold for five ten fifteen years preferably longer investing is not. I'm going to buy it today. I'm going to sell it three months from.

I do or the first time. I felt this way about amy winehouse first album this way about the dixie chicks. There's just a sense of like. Oh i cannot wait to see what else that you can if you can express yourself so well and so fully at seventeen.

Okay sir you wanted to do favorite song favorite lyric from sour. Okay you go. I want to go first. Because i'm not ready. I think that my favorite song is deja-vu gum. Because i think if you haven't listened to it she is talking about how weird it is that you have these really intimate experiences with someone and then they go repeat those with someone else. And it's just. I think that is a universal ubiquitous feeling. She also references. Billy joel rochester win with ability and you get so many points for that with so i. I really really liked that song. I think my favorite lyric is in good for you where she says. I guess that you've been working on yourself. I guess that therapist. I found for you.

I just feel like i can fly s. nelson. Get ready for the bridge of your life so good. It's so good so good. I think my favorite line and song is in happier where she says like cutting her down makes you miss my wretched heart like i just think that's like she's got it all right. They're like i wanna go after her. I wanna cut her down. But i know it's not going to miss you and i just like wretched heart. Come on it's so good but there's a lot listen. I got a list.

"Works. I am very pessimistic on whether you get ten. Republican senators to vote for any initiative. That is very very important to joe biden. But i'm happy that some people are trying and i feel like that's bragging point for the democratic party right now. We're not all one thing that we're not all one thing. Look at those guys. They're trying so hard to all. Be one thing well listen. I'm very frustrated with joe manchin. I am with the letter of experts that said if you do not get this voting rights bill passed. Our democracy is on the line. I think that's the right. Take i think these state election change is the state stacking. The state election boards is like a five alarm fire and also. I don't lead with that. When i'm talking to my republican friends that i'm trying to persuade i lead with. I want to healthy parties. I've been democrat. Since i was eighteen years old and i am concerned about the state of the republican party right now when they are trying to make it illegal to pass out water bottles then we have a problem right when they're trying to keep people from going to the polls after going to church because they know it's primarily black voters in texas. We have a problem and if you say stuff they'll go. Oh you can't do that. That's what my step dad always says. They can't do that. And i'm like no they can't and they are but like he doesn't he doesn't follow it bit by bit right and he. There's a lot of people because they do are not consumed with politics. Have a vision of sort of both sides. Mess it up. That's still very prominent conversations. I have why just think they're both kind of like they're both so corrupt and both parties are jacked up. And that's the that's the line. And so i do my best to say no. That's not the case right now. I understand where you're coming from. And i want to healthy. Functioning parties and one party is in a very different place than the other party and its concern. It should be concerning for all of us. I don't do ted cruz a tube worm. Don't you agree. 'cause that's not gonna move anybody. I've just eliminated myself as a person who has any sort of objectivity when it comes to this and that's what independent people who are persuadable. Wanna hear and again. I'm not trying to win the moral argument. I'm trying to wear win the political argument. I don't care if ted cruz cries into his pillow every night because he knows he's such a pet. I want ted cruz to lose the next election. That's what i care about. That's what i care about. And i just think it gets to displays where like we want them to be convinced of how bad they are and that's great. Y'all can trying that but it's not gonna work and it's not going to change anything. I don't want them to feel bad about themselves. Want them to lose this bill going through the senate in regular order right now related to the endless frontier act which is something that chuck schumer and todd. Young senator from indiana have been working together on about research and development money. Can the united states make sure that china is not eating our lunch in terms of our understanding technology. Our defense system cybersecurity. There's all kinds of stuff in it. It's it's a really good bill that has gotten to be less good as it has gone through regular order because regular order means everybody gets to take a bite at it right and it gets loaded up with stuff that doesn't have anything to do with the underlying bill and things get watered down and you end up passing something that nobody thinks great but it does get something done and watching that happen right now. Feels like the most nostalgic wonderland. That's how i felt about. The white house means about infrastructure. I was like putting him of veins. I love this like they're debating the spending and isn't gonna come from the this in this fun. I'm like i don. I barely understand what you're talking about. And i love it. It makes me so happy with. I feel exactly the same way. And so let me say i agree with you. That the voting rights issue is a five alarm fire and i also think that the idea that the for the people act is going to get passed as it is today through the united states senate whether on a fifty one vote majority or sixty vote majority is a fantasy and is probably not good for america. It is good for america when we go through these things. I really support the biden. Administration's vision around treating childcare is infrastructure. I.

"I think it is more effective to talk about the issues then to add to the profile of known the libs politicians. Yes i think it is important to recognize that state. Republican led legislatures are have been most of them are going into recess now but have been on a roll trying to make voting harder trying to make the right to receive an abortion even narrower or to outright ban it on the chance at the supreme court will go there with them her trying to make transgender kids political. Footballs and i think we need to be talking. Relentlessly about those efforts and explaining what they really are. Because i truly believe that person who doesn't pay attention to politics and who will vote for a democrat or a republican in the next election and who might or might not show up for a mid-term election can hear those issues and get mad about them if they really understand what's going on. I really believe that we can move people around those issues. I do not believe that we move people by dunking on politicians. A so you the other thing that. I've been thinking about a lot and i know that this is going to upset people and i you know again i love you. We're we're all here with our differences for me. One of the most off putting things happening not among democratic leadership democratic leadership does not do this as much as democratic influencers but in sort of the social media space the constant relentless assaults on people like mansion and cinema by folks with millions of followers. I'm not talking about somebody who's listening has just like a regular account in life. Who gets aggravated with them. I totally understand that. But the the drumbeat of let's pylon to those two and let's act as though we wish they would get primary d- by someone who was far more progressive. Who if you look at the reality of those states would not win in an election. I just find that so counterproductive to again those people who are marginally interested in politics gettable voters and predictable voters if i were democrat and well i guess i am a democrat now but if i were like a you know a really passionate democrat i feel like i would be walking around constantly bragging about the pa- left era of ideas that can exist in this party somewhat harmoniously and just as an american. I feel really good about these meetings. That are happening. Where you're getting a susan collins. A joe manchin who else at shelley moore. Capito gave the white house by herself west.

"Today is to me a key. Difference right now is that you have some real alignment within republican leadership all the way down to the state and local parties on making sure that elections continue to favor republicans. And you do not have that kind of ideological alignment within the democratic party. You have serious hard. Core fights about what to do about those things. And i think a fight is pretty healthy like a fight. I think that's very democratic. I think our country's design is to have those fights over things. I am concerned about the extent of alignment happening within the republican party. Around these topics. We'll and let me tell you the difference for the person talking back to this. The difference is those discussions on the democratic party. Come because we have the majority of the voters and not the majority of the legislators in state houses in congress and in the senate the fight in the republican party is because you're falling into the minority and you don't like it. That's the difference. I'm sorry i do not think those things are equivalent. I think having republicans lose the popular vote in the presidential election every time in my lifetime but one when you have republicans that represent a filibuster-proof group in the united states senate only represents like thirty percent of the united states population like this isn't about. You have reforms on the table as democrats because you feel like the process is anti-democratic. That's one thing if you're setting up anti-democratic processes because you're losing on the republican side. That's a complete different thing. I hear you on that. And also everybody's not there and i do wanna acknowledge again where everybody's coming from an understanding that for a lot of people being a republican being opposed to democrats is really deeply ingrained for lotteries ins and i don't wanna leave anybody out of this conversation by ignoring those concerns. I think that the other thing that i am interested in getting your thoughts on because i feel like you. You really are calmer about this. I m i think you have a clear vision of the way that this is the undoing of the party. The way that this leads to electoral failure the way that demographic shifts make this such a losing strategy long-term about all of that. Whenever i hear you say that. I'm like okay. Yep yep yep with you. And then i also think about how much damage a small group of highly motivated people can can do especially when that small group is still like quite a few million people and so. I wonder how you're thinking sarah about the rallies resuming about michael. Flynn being out there. Actively and openly talking about a violent coup about this strain of people who still think there's gonna be some magic date on which donald trump becomes the president again. Do you see any. I'm especially thinking about mike historical corollaries where a lot of damage can be done because of a movement like that even if it doesn't carry the day for the majority of americans. Yeah i think that there will be damage done but it won't carry the. I think that's a really good way to describe it. I think to do what they wanna do. They have to have more people. And they don't have those people and i think the election of donald trump as i said consistently during the election of two thousand was an alignment of some very specific scenarios. That got him to the presidency and not even incumbency was enough to overcome. Not all of those scenarios being present right like. I think that he was a historical in a lot of ways. Now i'm gonna talk about both sides mouth. 'cause i just said i think he is the completion of a pattern inside. The republican party pattern was one of those pieces of the puzzle that align to get him elected in two thousand sixteen. And i think what what gives me the greatest amount of i if the right word but at least a little bit of calm is the fact that he can't dominate mini-cycles like he can't even if he gets back on facebook he shut out of twitter and these people as passionate as they are growing up into the from the desk of donald trump blog. Every day are they know. They're not that's why they shut down because nobody was reading it because nobody cared now. I think it is morphine and more dangerous things. I think it's still very much a cult of personality. But there are other people. I think marjorie taylor. Greens figured out how to tap that chemistry. She's raised a lot of money. You're right yeah like that. She she can you know. She doesn't really trump impression. It's pretty it's pretty convincing. And there are lots of people for whom that will be very convincing but like even the election to fill. Deb haaland seat that it was such a blowout that gives me a lot of hope that i think at the end of the day the impact of the vaccine roll out the end of the pandemic the fact that all those people were impacted by the the stimulus checks that the economy is taking off. I'm not saying that. We don't have problems but i think that stuff does impact people. Is it enough to undo some of the identity based politics and the fear that they're going to push through like based campaigning techniques. No of course not. Those people are still going to be motivated by that. But i just don't think there are enough of them now. All of that said. I think this is serious and we should pay attention to it. But what. I don't want us to do is feed the freakin flame. And i think that we are going to have to hold the fact that this is really dangerous. Because we're a two party system that these people are motivated to do damage and are becoming more and more successful at doing that. Damage to our democracy and also understand that it is the fight that fuels them and we cannot give into that fight and i think that's what's frustrating to me. It's like watching people. Say sharing the like ted cruz getting dunked on by jimmy kimmel and thinking that helps. Anything is really frustrating to me. Because that side you think so anti-democratic and you're right and that side of the republican party. That is so dangerous and on the move. You're all right about that. And also what feels them. Is the fight.

"That we say on this show is particularly new. A lot of what we're talking about is discussed in books in philosophy. Hundreds of years gone by most of the time and so it should come as no surprise to you that when we talk about this stuff and on fridays when i try to give you something to think about. It's probably something you've heard before but it bears repeating. It's worth repeating some of the things that are so easy to forget. And i find that a lot of the time when i'm recording these episodes. I'm doing it as much as repeating a mantra. Back to myself as i am to you and this is something to in today's episode. This is something that i need to hear. And i'm trying to take that outside perspective and give myself some advice very often. I find that when i do this other people. They tend to need the advice to maybe not everybody. Who's listening to this. But some of you will and that advice is very simple today when you are trying to improve do it in one area at a time when you are trying to improve which is pretty much a hall of us most of the time. We're probably trying to improve on something when you're trying to improve do it in one area at a time. Now why is this. Well it s- pretty clear We've talked about focus on this show. As a over theme for the vast majority of episodes focus will come up and limiting our focus to fewer things is more kind of in line with the way that human brain works. And we're going to be more effective if we try to improve him waiting area at a time and realistically if we were to try to improve every area at all times. It's most likely that we will run into a few conundrums. We'll run into a situation. Where if we're trying to optimize for one particular aspect of our personality for example well making one decision is going to be better than another decision which might be optimized for a different aspect of our personality and so it makes sense to play this game of roulette to cycle through the various virtues for example that we wanna practice and that's use that virtues because i want to revisit something that i'm fairly certain we already talked about but we'll talk about it in again today because it is relevant as ben franklin's virtues. He had thirteen necessary virtues. That can be found in his autobiography And i'm going to read them out there. Temperance silence order resolution. Frugality industry sincerity justice moderation cleanliness tranquillity chastity and humility and i am reading by the way from a blog. Post on farnam street. And i'm gonna read just the The excerpts a little bit of the excerpt. And i encourage you to go read the blog posts that goes a little bit more into detail About each of those virtues that franklin listed Franklin advised right. This is straight from the blog. Post my intention. Being to acquire the habit toot of all these virtues. I judged it would not would be well not to distract attention by attempting the whole at once but to fix it one of them at a time and when i should be the master of that than to proceed to another and so on till i should've gone through the thirteen and as the previous acquisition of some might facilitate the acquisition of certain others arranged them with that view as they stand above..

"App by welcome back to powerhouse politics. We are going to take a very different Turn right now in one that. I'm really really quite excited about my friend. Neil king who is a legendary former reporter for the wall street journal who i know because we covered The state department together and traveled all over the world for the period of of of of few years with With with various secretaries of state awesome writer is embarked on a journey by foot. He is going from Washington dc where he lives just just steps away from the capital to new york to manhattan and a very circuitous route and along. The way neal is writing these. Just awesome dispatches which he tells us will become a book i predict will be a very big hit so when it becomes a big hit. You can say you first heard about this interesting journey by foot through The washington new york corridor here on powerhouse politics. So we'll begin our conversation. We caught up with neil while he was walking through doylestown pennsylvania. Curtis i have to say this is some of the most wonderful writing Fresh new writing. That i have Read in some time and it's an and i. It's the first thing i turn to. I want to see if i've gotten your your latest right up these stories your observations of this of this area again. You're taking a meandering trip. You're not literally walking up by ninety five. That wouldn't be very interesting. Your your observations are incredible. But i kinda dig down into a couple of these. If you don't mind. Neil insured and this is classic you constantly find these people either in real life today or from our deep distant past. I've known you how you come up with. These people yohannes kelp who was running around pennsylvania about the in sixteen ninety s and your description of him kind of caught my eye. Because you said kelpie was a pioneer kissed a mystic and they doomsayer which immediately thought of our executive producer of this podcast. Trevor haitian often the way i think of him. But what would you describe this you you you you come across the cave. I go ahead tommy me. Tell me this part of the things been saying about walking is that you're stringing one step. After the other one person met up it did alter everything. That's three miles. An hour thing ultras everything and so. It is a very much for one thing leads to another. So oddly enough. I i went to another extraordinary place in philadelphia called eastern state penitentiary but by the way was one of the main reasons that tocqueville alexis de tocqueville came to america in eighteen. Thirty one was to visit this penitentiary brand new. And when i was there i was talking to a guy your job. Show everything and told me about this. Hermit's cave this cave where this guy copious at lived. And i just was like. Oh my god. I gotta go check that out thing about. That's a him why he went to this place. I went to as when he arrived in philadelphia. Philadelphia was basically brand news. Sixteen ninety four And he was part of this sort of cult thought. The world is about the end so they wanted to go into the wilderness and at the time their wilderness was like six miles from philadelphia. So when i went there yesterday kind of as a to humorous thing to see like what did the outer reaches wilderness. sort of. Look like them and of course dislike much like now. I'm like well as much at the moment but anyway the funny thing about the walk as you just don't know who's gonna mention something that will lead you to the next place. I met a guy kick our sound. He mentioned a place called yellow supremes which was also philadelphia. Any favors the first ever. Us military hospital. And i was like. Wow i've walked there. I think carol into a book. And i think one of the themes going to be during a period. Now when we're so we thinking our history and tearing down statues and i think the many things we like about the country. Find a lot of healthy this kind of reckoning but i also think we should try to the end and reemerge think there to celebrate her own path at about her own character just kind of eccentric You know it's bencher speaking people and You know all of the huge experiment. At the time. When i came and then and then there's a lot of aspects of our history that i'm kind going to look out in case it speak to people about a lot of it has trying to kinda i dunno under these our that worry thinking about a new. I mean another guy that you you you you. One earth seems to be having somewhat of a renaissance. Is this guy. Benjamin lay who was was a quaker. He he was he was what he was. Basically was one of the first abolitionist tall door. Basically and it was like hunchback almost like performance artists and kind of provocateur and again you know there are statues around for something like benjamin lay but he was one of the versus the convinced the quakers to renounce slavery and the quakers were intern. One of the primary sources. That really drove the abolitionist movement in america Without which you know who knows exactly where or history would have gone over that stretch. These kinds of individuals are really fascinating important than he was. Total. oddball who deserves more attention. Yeah out you know. He kind of was calling for a boycott before we knew what. A boycott was. Long the loudest of america's malicious long before boycotts. He urged the quakers to issue. The products created through slavery including tea. Sugar and coffee. He was a dwarf hunchback in a lifelong vegetarian. I just the fricking detail. It's great but i wanna ask you you. You ended up in a quaker meeting house. And i have to say this was one point where you're writing kind of lost me a little bit but but i loved being lost in this. I don't even know what you're talking about. Frankly here but but you go into this meeting house. It has a retractable retractable roof. Or something is this right. And it's right before sunset. I may be getting all wrong. But i just want to read inveterate. That's okay. I just want to read.

"Would trump would describe the deep state but it's very hard to actually do this but biden. Who's been talking about withdrawing from afghanistan for a long time naturally. He said he said he would do it. In the debate. Martha raddatz hosted backing twenty twelve when he debated vp candidate. Paul ryan and it didn't happen But but now he's adamant. Us troops gone twenty. Years is enough. There will always be a reason to stay. It's time to get out. You know i mean. This is a direction that obama wanted to go as well. But yes but as we as you know john. I mean they're foreign policy. Even even behind closed doors was never perfectly aligned and by doing came came into those obama years. Have the chairman of the foreign relations committee part of the kind of permanent establishment around. These things may be less of a con. An automatic contrarian than obama was in confronting challenge. Like this and it is interesting because we're seeing a lot of criticism come in. I think predictable criticism from the right republicans. Saying you're cutting running. They were a little quieter when it was trump talking about doing the same the same sort of thing. In fact president biden's moving about six months slower than at president. Trump said he would But it is a big first test or early test of of biden's vision on foreign policy as we know it was never always. He never always won those debates inside the obama white house at a lot of folks in and around obama. we're glad he wasn't winning those debates. Now he's the decision maker now. He's the guy that's pulling the strings and he's the one that's making this relative pretty dramatic announcement on the twentieth anniversary and it. It is interesting to see it tied to a symbolic a moment on the calendar. And of course. Nash security challenges. Don't usually you know neatly cooperate with with a calendar But but i think the the you know the way the way biden is looking at this. Is you gotta set a deadline. You've gotta do you gotta make the break because again there will always be a reason why you cannot leave. You need to you need to force. It ends up being a pretty key commitment for him to to key because it's something that he has said consistently has a candidate for president as you said at the candidate for vice-president of come to this to this moment we'll see if it has to slide again that's been another part of the history around these seemingly never any conflicts the forever war is sometimes Being called and i think it's also worth noting here the been. It's been a big touchstone on the left to see an end to conflict and actual an actual end date. There's a generation of politicians who are coming up. Now who were frankly they were. They were kids on nine eleven. And they've seen this the war in afghanistan and the us troop presence there for basically our lives or as luther entire essentially in lives and there are some of the folks who are saying. You know time to end this thing. We can't have wars that go on forever. We need to have this. Nda what's your sense going into this Into this joint session speech ends. Were all starting already to take stock on on on the first hundred days. It seems that biden has done a remarkable job of unifying a party which is rarely unified. i mean he. He's he seems to have largely mean there. There's grumbling on issue here issue there But but the you know. The progressive seems to be progressing to be largely on board. They like what he did with the covert relief. Bill they would like this This next big infrastructure bill to be bigger Don't doubt but they but they like what he's doing One biden supporter somebody who was a longtime biden supporter Said to me you know. We kinda campaigned as a moderate. Now he's got a little bit more like the way you would elizabeth warren A might have But but he's seems to by and large kept kept the party on board and into the extent that there's been sniping it's been a little bit more in the center the moderates who are a little more upset and keep them in line which is a to me a pretty big surprise you know. I saw someone write recently. He has shown no lbj in in terms of managing relationships in congress. Clearly he knows more about the senate than anyone. Any senator. Already president since lbj. I think that's a pretty fair assessment. Given long he spent there but keep in mind. Lbj came in with majorities that were well into the sixties for democrats. A lot of those democrats were southern democrats to oppose them on civil rights. But it's a different to keep in mind that he's not only that he's uniting party but he's having a party with the narrowest of advantages. It's a fifty fifty senate. John and in the house nancy pelosi. You can lose to have defectors if and still be able to carry me over the finish line unbelievably narrow. So that's part of what's keeping the discipline is knowing that it doesn't take much to pick off from the from the other party. It's also it's also putting some pressure on him to to show bipartisan credentials in some other ways because he can deliver and has delivered already without any republicans is he still looking for them to republicans. Feel singed right now. By the way that he's been treated by he's created them. And i think this white house likes to talk the public opinion. Polls say bipartisanship means that they've got bipartisan. Support republican support as well as. They're not getting republican votes. That to me was a key promise of biden either implicitly or explicitly and that is not something he's delivered on to the extent that that is a theme for this next phase of the biden presidency. That'll be fascinating to watch. And republicans are firmly into the into the position. It seems to me of he's overreaching and we are the resistance. I mean there are fundraising off this They i mean either. There's a lot of complaints about him. Going back on his word to work with to work with republicans But you don't get a sense that there's a groundswell of republicans eager to make a deal on any of this stuff..

"Down. do you know. It wasn't one specific thing. It seems like it was just an accumulation of of things that kept on going like having children that became very active in sports and other activities. To where my evenings are completely gone. And hop in that van and drive those kids like a show for My husband being wrapped up in his job and not having the time to come home. And say how is your day looking. Pass me and just getting off track losing and selling myself out. Losing my goals might dreams. I used to dream all the time you know. I'm very much of person of the air. You know kind of kind of always dreaming big dreams. Big ideas and i started noticing that those were going. You know they were just all kind of fizzling out and there was a lot of disappointments setting in and i started to feel like shell empty like my will was taken from me and so now i do nothing i struggled. I was very enthusiastic about. I went to college three times. I couldn't decide what i wanted to be. When i grew up and i went into psychology and then i became a nurse and a lot of sacrifices for that and then after all that kind of this is this all there is feeling this. Is this it wanting something more. Yeah but not knowing what it is. And then i stopped working time. I started to hang around the house more and do nothing. My husband started coming home and asking me. What have you done all day. And i couldn't answer that you wanted to ask what. Yeah so one of the things that lauren. I just talked briefly. And i said well. So what do you do. She says i've essentially stopped doing. I try to take care of everybody in my job as a nurse. I was taking care of people when i came home. I was taking care of my husband and my kids and everybody else. And i don't take care of myself as well. What did you use to do to take care of yourself. So i was very athletic. I really love. I was a weightlifter. I love that. And i haven't done anything like i haven't done anything physical. I haven't done anything for myself. I keep thinking. I would want to do something and then i just stopped. I make small attempts i do. I have good intentions. I signed up for a cardio kick class to get out there and i thought that get some frustrations out and i went two times and then i started making excuses. You know and and then i start the the negative self talk beating myself up on good. I'm did you ask her to do one thing differently. We're just about to talk about. Well i i just have to tell you a story. I one time a woman came to see me and she was having really severe. Pms and she was getting treatment for but she was really having a tough time. She kept very irritable and her family all started getting really withdraw from her and she was getting more and more upset about that. I said you gotta give them a signal that you're feeling upset. What's the most ridiculous offered you have. And she said well. I have a bunny suit. Somebody gave me as a joke. One time she came home put on the bunny suit when she was feeling. Pms symptoms and the kids scattered and her husband's dead. It was a hint farm. So i was thinking the same thing i said you know i ask you. Did you used to you know. How did you workout weightlifting outfit. I had everything i thought. Maybe if you could put that on that small changes saying wow. I tried to go to class on quite do it if you could put that on to remind yourself in the morning in the morning. Is the craziest time. Told me taking care of everybody and making breakfast for everybody. If you can put that on and say okay this morning one morning a week two mornings whatever works for you. I put on my old weightlifting stuff from my all athletic stuff. And just tell people this morning's from me you're on your own from breakfast. You're not going to starve to death if you miss breakfast. One morning this morning's for me. I'm probably going to do something physical because you told me that was good. I usually go back to what we're before and then start doing but in small ways you can get out of that rut. Maybe a kit classes too much. I think that was she tried to do. It was too much but that's enough it. I'll walk putting on that outfit and figuring out what small thing you can do that day. That would be a little physical to start you back on that road because a nurse. It tends to go in the direction. You're in if you're not doing. Things inertial will stay that way if you start doing things. Start to snowball change. And you said if i do something that would really help okay. Peggy maurer wrote to us saying she noticed physical changing herself that she didn't like so she started doing something. Different dear oprah. My childhood was perfect as they come. But i had low self esteem after years of convincing myself that i needed to shrink my spirit around others. I started to actually go into my own slump. Literally my shoulders would be droopy hold my head high and i became quite passive then. I looked at the transformation princess diana made at the beginning. She would keep her head low and sit with a little slump when she found her true spirit. Her whole persona changed. She held her head high and she sat very tall. Walk very proud. I try an experiment. Where for one week. I went anywhere and everywhere with a true consciousness of my posture and saw what a different something as simple as holding your head high and walking with an attitude can do. You are so right about that. There's you know. Sometimes you pass yourself like an store window and your slumping it and you straighten yourself up and you feel kinda sticky walking down the exact like one of those runway models. Yes how did that change for you. Unbelievable i mean something so simple as just the way you present yourself to people and walk. Even i mean put your shoulders back and the people around me just reacted unbelievably i started. They know that's what it was now. Nobody knew i knew. I didn't say hey you're standing up straighter very weird. If your sometimes do your someone they may not be physically gorgeous or anything. But you're just there's an attraction your want to be around them. And that's kind of what i wanted to bring to me so by doing that i mean it just. It's unbelievable i mean people. They just wanted to be around me. And i was much happier a much happier person just by sitting up straight and tastic thank you. I love this idea of little things.

The you know your whole and worthy or by yourself and so spending time alone fifteen minutes sounds like a small amount of some people and some people are a little surprised. you know. it's easy to take fifteen minutes. Not for gloria. Since she's had her first child she's been focused on other people focused on job center. Husband focused on the kids fifty. We talked about three nights a week. She might have time to do this. Actually that was too much. I think maybe two nights a week maybe one two week because for her she said i was a little terrified to go in there and find out what i would see when i spend time alone a small change can start that snowball change. Don't try and make it too big or you'll fail or forget to do. It don't won't do it. But it's plato says the unexamined life is not worth living so you have to have the courage to examine your own life really. That's part of your journey as well as being a mom. Don't you think. Karl is to define yourself your own self. But i believe so. She has a real tough time. I mean even with fifteen minutes like like you were saying. She's been all week trying to avoid doing that. I mean just like the other night. Ten o'clock at night pastor bit time instead of taking time to spend with herself she actually went and start washing the shower and she spent about an hour hour and a half there until the point of exhaustion. And you gotta clean shower now. Why is it so terrifying to be alone with yourself. I guess a lot of the fair comes. Because i'm not sure what it is that i enjoy doing and i have a million books and my husband. He teases me. Because i'll go and buy books and he says why. Are you buying his books. And i'm like well. I have good intentions. I wanna read them. I'll get through the first bronx simple abundance book. No actually i've looked at that one. I've looked at his best book for you right now because all it is it won't even take you fifteen minutes. It's like every day. There's a different passage but it's really about getting to know yourself and it's not even just about og. We're just reading a passage about having a better day. But she really does help you. Sort of excavate the authentic. You finding the real you. I have like one hundred copies upstairs. Okay okay and you begin to do that and if you promise that you read that simple abundance book every day and you keep a gratitude journal do you. Keep a gratitude china. Actually i started keeping journals. I have three journals that are like a quarter written in and it kind of when i think of it i'll go and grab it like. That was the first thing i did when i went in the room by myself. I was crying. Because i was like. Okay what are you gonna do. You know and i went and i just grabbed my journal and i said okay. It's now six zero four imani. My youngest daughter is trying to come into the room. You know and the focus was totally different. It wasn't on me. No this is what you do. You have heard me suggested before gratitude journal is a single greatest thing i have found and millions of people have followed me in this in beginning to change the way you think about your life. You just spend fifteen minutes with yourself. It won't even take fifteen and you write down five things in your life that you are grateful for in your life focused on you. What happened to you that day and you begin to think about all the abundance. You have the more grateful you become the more grateful things happen in your life and you will see that you will begin to change your spending that much time with yourself and then fifty minutes won't be enough and in a short period of time. Don't think some people glory had a tough time doing this. You felt guilty. And i just reminded or what they do on airplanes. When the oxygen mask drops down to travel a small children u. pictures on farms verse. So you can take care of feel guilty if you if you being grateful because the universe appreciates grateful soul it. Does i think once day is going to be tough for her to start so maybe twice a week to start and then work up to once a day when she gets more comfortable. Okay thank you doing one thing differently. What we're talking about and stinson sent us this letter. Dear oprah. What's one thing that i do differently. I drive differently. It used to be when someone would cut me off or do something obnoxious on the road. My heart would start pounding become very angry. It was becoming the most significant emotional event of my day. I started thinking ahead to get a handle on this. It's just not worth it. I realized that. I had the power to change the way. I react to people when they do rude things on the road so i did. I changed now. We make an effort to let people in. And i smile at them. When i do it so now. Driving in heavy traffic no longer is a traumatic affair. And i feel like i'm becoming a better person just by changing this one thing. That's a big thing. I know a lot of people get really upset with people cutting them off in traffic. Why did that upset you so well living here in chicago where the traffic has gotten worse. Has it not. it's it's pretty bad but it's like a big city. It's like any big city. And you know i realized that driving is a human interaction correct but it is the most fleeting anonymous interaction that we have with one another during the day and that that somehow gives us permission to treat each other differently on the road than we would in any other interaction. Good point excellent. So i thought there's a real incongruency between who i am behind the wheel and who i am when i'm in any other situation. I thought if. I can change the way. I react to people on the road if i can change my behavior when i'm driving. It might make me a better person in every other aspect of my life and bill. I wish i had your book. I wish i didn't have to figure this out on my own. Because he did figured it out by yourself sure and it has not everybody on the road. That might have something to do with you. Know a reaction to it. That's right. I don't take it personally and living here and in chicago driving in the traffic here. I was literally battling traffic. I would get home. And i would be not only physically exhausted but i would be emotionally exhausted from this conflict that i created that i created so changed realization now. What else changed as a result of that. I feel that there is now a congruency between who i am and behind the wheel and who i am in the rest of my life. I treat everybody the same. Which is well i hope. At least i'm learning to treat people well and I so i think i've become a better person overall. That's fantastic by changing that one thing. That's huge so even if you can't change the people on the road you do have the power to change how you react as you do with everything. But sometimes it's hard to access that power within you. Laura scott wrote to us saying that. She's feeling absolutely powerless. Right now over the last couple of years. She started slipping into a depression. She says she drags through her days filling collected and very stuck. And she's looking for help and how to get out of this depression. Bill says it one way to figure out. A change is to understand how laura does her depression. What do you mean by that. I mean the parts you know. There may be biochemical genetic parts There may be interpersonal parts. There's some relationship thing that are going on figure out what part you have control over that you can do something about by being like an anthropologist near life study you're stuck nisar depression or whatever problem and find out what parts you do say. Change the doing or change the viewing figure out what you can have control over and be like an anthropologist. This study as if you had a videotape of it. Teach me how to do that kind of depression. I do mine and my way you do yours in your now. Why why did you start spiraling.

There's no shame in asking for help because bill o'hanlon is a therapist. Who suggested that robert make this change. He's written a book called thing different which is interesting. That really is the the first step to beginning to change. Whatever you want to change. It's just do one thing different. Which is what we're talking about. He is a firm believer in the power of changing little things. Why does changing something so simple. Have such a big impact. Because most people don't have the time to make big changes has we've heard from most everybody here but he's busy but choose something that's under. Your control doesn't have any side effects isn't a major change because we make a major change. There's lots of unwanted side effects can quit your job or get a divorce but then a lot of things change if you can start to take control the change process and just do one thing different. It starts to break you out of the all rights and then you can start the process of change in control it in the direction you wanted. Cassie the gentleman behind you shaking your head sir. You yeah yeah. Are you taking this all in. What are you thinking right now. I'm just saying that it makes sense to me. You're you create patterns in your life. Obviously doing something very simple. Break that pattern yourself into crates. An entire outcome chain-reaction absolutely okay one technique that bill suggests is creating transition rituals small things that can help you feel more grounded throughout your day. Working moms certainly Where a number of different hats. We're so aware of that. Many of you say you literally spinning just rushing from the office to home. Try trying to anybody relate to this trying to squeeze in quality time with your kids We did an experiment with some working. Moms who tried. Something called the mr rogers technique ellen. Gallinsky the author of the new book. Ask the children actually coined the phrase what bill can explain what it means. This is to give yourself a signal that something different is going to happen here if you just come right home from work. You're so busy as most people said you don't make any transitions so this can help you make the transition. Psychologically emotionally also gives a signal so the kids so our to your husband are to your wife. Something is different here. We're gonna change. I'm not in work mode anymore. Nine frantic busy mode. I want to change my clothes slowed down a little. Mr rogers was so great at it. Changes clothes yeah. Okay denise parsons a working. Mom volunteered to make a conscious effort to change her clothes as soon as she got home from work. Did it affect you very much so yes. I usually don't change my clothes until about ten o'clock at night when i go to bed so like if you wearing that work you just have that on because i come in the door and i'm running from the minute. I walk in the door. Until i get my daughter ready for bed so it was an interesting experiment and it was great as he was talking about. The transition was wonderful because it was from the hectic hurry day of being at work to relax close right my most comfy clothes and it was interesting. My husband even said that you need to change into your comfy clothes every day because You haven't yelled at me at all tonight so so it worked okay. Gloria spratling is a twenty six year old mother of two. She wrote us this letter. Saying personal happiness with myself and my accomplishments would make my life much easier. I have an awesome and gorgeous husband two beautiful little girls who had treasure so much yet. I feel as if. I'm not being all that i'm supposed to be. I feel as if i'm missing out on something because of all the negative thoughts thoughts and resentment. I feel i'm at the bottom of a well in the middle of the desert with no water bottom of a well in the middle of the desert with water. You arthur stephen. Really all i can do is look up at the sky and we should. Someone will find me and helped me out well. Bills assignment for. Gloria was to spend just fifteen minutes alone a couple of days a week and some of you might think. That's all for gloria even thinking about doing this scary so she let our cameras be there. She prepared to take her first fifteen minutes of mommy time pretty much the reason why actually never taken the time. It's probably because i never really made time mentally. I feel like. I don't have the time because my mind's always going on what i need to do with the kids. If i'm spending enough time with them what did i do yesterday. It just keeps going and going fifteen minutes. Seems like a lot of time to basically keep my mind focused on me for right now. Because i lived my life so much making time for everybody else and now it's my turn. I'm going to go on the room humble myself which means that neither one of you can come and knock on the door and asked me for anything just for a little while. I'll an thank you very much really hard. it's scary you know. Because i'm scared that i actually try and focus on myself. I'm not going to.
"first thing" Discussed on The Oprah Winfrey Show: The Podcast
"Twenty five seasons four thousand five hundred sixty one episodes. I believe the oprah winfrey show was one of the greatest classrooms in the world Rolling never thought of it that way. The moments the breakthroughs the lol's the connections the occasional. Ugly cry i missing so terribly. I missing every single minute. The moments that matter i opening light lessons never allow them to take you somewhere else. I'm bringing them back. It's time to open the ball. I personally chosen these classic episodes to share with you again. Every single person you ever will need shares that common desire. They want to know. Do you see me. do you hear me. That's what i say mean anything to you. You're listening to the oprah winfrey show the podcast presently. We posted a question on our website. We asked what one thing would make your life better and we got three thousand eight hundred and forty responses almost immediately to that one question. What would make your life better. It's an interesting question to ask yourself right now. If i were to answer that question. Because i have a pretty good life i have to say. It's a wonderful life and what you see on. The outside is one thing but really i think the greatest thing about my life is that i have a great sense of inner peace that is sort of indescribable. But what would really make my life. Better is if these boots that i'm wearing today had come in a size ten instead of a size nine and a half because i was in that little fendi store and i you know how you really like it a lot and the lady says. I'm sorry we only have a half but they run big my feet not feeling that they run big right now so that would have made my life better if they came in size ten. All i can ask or some folks. Chicago had definite ideas though about the one thing that would improve their lives thing that my life better would be a fulltime housekeeper tans down probably a fulltime unpaid life assistance to follow me around and do whatever i needed them back and design my own man who have them show up whenever i want have believe whenever i want. Someone could walk my dog when it's raining or when it's snowing a couple extra hours in the day one thing that would definitely make my life better is if i could have lunch with your we shop and you can do my hair and then i can do your hair personal shopper. Drive through starbucks so i wouldn't have to get out of my car. Free parking thing that would make my life better is paying less taxes in each magic degree. better johnson. definitely more sleep. No telemarketers ever called. Our home in telemarketers are getting bad. aren't they so bad. I answered the phone so much. So now i answered the phone illu the other night i got one and they say you know just the owner of the home. No it was my answer. Some of the answers we got online. Where a little unusual light brook from colorado. Who wrote the one thing that would make my life better would be if someone would invent a portable doggy door. That's interesting that fits into sliding glass doors. Is well insulated and doesn't take handyman to install portable doggy door. Some of them were kind of pie in the sky to have a car and a driver. Someone said that's a nice thing someone to come in and do my hair and my daughter's here every morning that's good. I have that too. That's really that is really good. I know people say to me. How do you get your head like that. you yours could too if you had. Andre should see me on the weekend but we really won't go to the grocery store and the people you know 'cause usually you know people have a reaction because you walk in it's open then they don't know who i am have to say. Hello we'll be back in a minute but some of the responses we got. Were so doable. To stop watching so much television and get active to say goodbye to those people in my life. Who are not good for me. That was a lotta people. A lot of people have just say goodbye. We're going to talk about. How do identify the things that you do. Have the power to change and how doing just one thing differently can move you in the right direction. But i i wanna talk to lisa. Snugs lisa's answer to the question. What one thing would make your life better was similar to a lot of the messages we receive from wives around the country. And you wrote lisa speaking up for the wives around the country the one thing that would make my life better is if my husband would come home each day and give me a hug and kiss and say i thought of you today. Oh you're not alone. That is not happening and a lot of homes across america. I thought it was. I thought it's like ward cleaver comes home dear. That's not too busy. I think too busy busy well. This lisa's husband andrew were you. Were you surprised to hear that. That's the one thing not a chauffeur. I was a little surprised but you know we have very busy. Lives and take for granted. Sometimes the little things like that and we come. I come home and we both start doing our own thing and you come home and not even like smack sometimes seventy. Give me a mike. Go come on. Give me the real deal. I usually give the hug and the kiss in the morning before leaving and that ought to last for goodness sakes. What more do you wanna hug you this morning. And so you just come in and there's not even a howdy doody usually all there. Is you know just saying alone. We start you know doing things with the children and so you would like your life would be completely different. If if he would just show me a little more attention so that i would feel more important in his life right now. I feel like. I'm not a top priority at all. I don't think you're asking for out and out like you know major romance. How was your day moment. A hug a little embrace distant that he thought to me that day at some point would be enough. Because do you think of her during the day. And it's the right answer. We're robert. And daphne coming up and sit with me. Robert and daphne. Daphne doesn't really know why they're here they. The they've been a soundproof booth She thinks it. They're here for show on starting your own business. Which is is something we made up. But don't be nervous. We're not going to surprise you with old boyfriends okay. The reason the woods are here is because robert wrote us a letter about something that he wished he could. Change about himself darrow. Bram life is nearly perfect. I have to happy children and a beautiful soul mate for a wife but the one thing that would make my life better is to be more appreciative. I wish i could just do the small things that were once so easy when my wife and i were first married the simple little things like little notes. Spontaneous hugs or just a loving smile. That says thank you for loving me once in a while i might remember to do one of these things and then life is wonderful as it gets so. That's what i would do differently. I'd remember to show.

"first thing" Discussed on 15 Minutes to Freedom: A Warrior’s Daily Focus on Journals and Meditations
"This is T- minutes free on your host Alan. Today's episode is no one thing today's episode. I'm going to share with you a very quick very brief very direct. Actionable one thing that you should do immediately to change the outcome of your life in these very unique times. So if you're new to fifteen minutes of freedom you would know Mattel longwinded stories. I absolutely fifteen or twenty minutes long. I've decided to condense down into five minutes or less. So bear with me not gonNA take long to describe the one thing you should do right now or say the one thing you should do right now. That seems a little grandiose right how could there be one thing to focus on in this moment of time when there's so many things to worry about them. We have to worry about how to pay our bills when we go back to work. If we'RE GONNA GET SICK. Maybe our husbands or wives children parents brothers sisters employees or employers in the list seems almost cripplingly long sometimes. Doesn't it really breaks right down to the one thing that you should focus on more than anything? In this moment you should actually focus on what you think. Yes you should focus on what you allow to rent space in your head you see as you scroll through social media. There's polarizing conversation from both the left and the right conspiracy theorists and traditionalist over and over again. Where should you go? What should be what's going on? What can you do? Have you noticed again? And then what about the media itself? What about the actual mainstream media or MS MS is being referred to now? What about what? They're sharing either have their own agendas of course just as you and I do. Let's not kid ourselves. My agenda from this show is to get you to pause for a moment and audit what it is that you are thinking audit what you allow to rent space in between your ears. It is the most valuable real estate. You'll ever own in your life yet you consume consistently things knock you off of center and have you worried about all types of variables. You're unable to control and I know that from place of authenticity so I found myself doing it earlier this week. I was simply being consumed by all the conspiracy theories. If you go on I spent hours of time wasted on things that I simply can't control and that got me thinking what can I control? What is it that I can do that will ensure my future success and the first thing I came up with is to ensure that I'm only allowing good things in my mind and no sooner. Did I come up with Adam? Scrolling through my social media feed and a close friend of mine from here in Columbus Ohio where I am located postman. If this doesn't change I don't know what I'm GonNa do my family's GonNa run out of money. I just need to get back to work. And it's all the negativity right. He's focused on the negative space. Maybe that sounds like you but what ends up happening is we have to focus and I encourage him like pivot. This stop worrying about what you cannot control. We can control okay so you don't have a job right now. There's plenty of sales organizations. Need help from home. You don't WanNa work from home you. You're not a good salesperson landscaping companies maintenance. Crews there's places that are still employing people. The world is still going on. It's all perspective of what you decide to look at life through the Lens that you're perceiving reality from that's ultimately you determine your outcome right now. The biggest opportunity for growth you've ever experienced in your life. You literally have nothing to do other than think about where you want to go and then focus on so my encouragement for you..
"first thing" Discussed on Comeback Szn
"That's what it is. Maybe I am on one today. You are definitely angry. Listen a little. Sec Sec hatred going on that kind of let them put them in a row. But I just I just Alabama didn't lose here in Georgia fans are acting like they lost. And you haven't Lost Nick. Sabin the day that you lose Nick. Sabin becomes a problem. Nick Sabin is the head coach at Georgia or anywhere else in the country then fans can celebrate. This is strengthening conditioning coach. Who was very good at his job and very important. It's the same thing with the Patriots. When bill leaves problem anything else you still got the guy in charge. Ya. I agree with that Jack. Sorry no it's fine. Thought you were gonNA say something. No I do I wanted to. Casey actually stole my point but we are on the same page that the strength and conditioning coach may be the second most important coach on the roster in. I was GONNA ask you guys if you agree. I saw curb street in Cole cubelic. I think that's how you say his name. We're talking about this. This is potentially nick savings biggest loss. Since going to Alabama I would I would think that can be true and it can also be true. That just won't really matter. Okay yeah it is the biggest loss. He's had absolutely. I believe he's such a good coach good organizer and good. Ceo that he's going to absorb this laws like he's absorbed every other loss and strength and conditioning to is going to evolve right. So it's not like Scott. Cochran is the only guy in the country that understands what college football players need and it does change every year so now Nick Sabin is GonNa go out and find the guy in two thousand twenty. That's more up to speed on certain things and it's not saying Scott Cochran's knocking to do a good job at Georgia but losing strength and conditioning coaches big time for the players I would think for the actual program and the play on the field. Unless you're really bad at what you do. They're not going to take a step back. He gets shit strength and conditioning coach in there which he won't that might be a problem but he's not going to this to dealing with the caliber athlete. Alabama gets grown men at eighteen years. Old They're getting the cream of the crop and Georgia is to Georgia. Is this guy it can can walk around saying you know. I put this guy's NFL. Know Nick Sabin went to their high school and went to their living room and got them to sign with Alabama. He got him to the NFL. Just told them to lift the weights. You you were just stood behind them when they were in any helped you helped. But they do have some witch shit going on at Alabama's maybe he's involved with that too. But it's like if you're a five star chef you can take to star ingredients and make me a very nice meal. But this guy he's not been given. He's a chef. Been Given shitting fog. Ron and fancy ice ingredients truffles. He's been given truffles very good. Truffles like the highest for a Musty Hill. In France. Yes so easily truffles come from. I don't know okay. I believe wherever you say to be honest so basically. What you're saying is the truffles. He would have to do something. Horrendously bad to make them shitty. So you can't fuck out. Truffles Scott Cochran would have to be doing something. That's just so out of line for these players to not continue to develop as athletes at Alabama. Same thing in Georgia Nick. Saban's going to be fine. Hello everyone nick. Sabin is going to be all right. Colorado hires Karl Durell which I think closes the book on the coaching Carousel for the two thousand twenty season. A little bit later closed It's a very anticlimactic. Carl I mean great former. Ucla coach went thirty. Five and twenty. Seven Steve Sarkissian interview there but didn't take it which is interesting. This phenomenon of guys like sticking as assistant coaches instead of being coaches as well. It's pretty much the dumbest thing I've ever heard. So bag at Alabama okay. Would you rather live in Boulder Colorado Tuscaloosa Alabama? I do love. Boulder there in bouldering. Yes okay yeah but you also know you're GonNa have success and if you're a guy who has had the rocky background that sarcasm like listen you go to Colorado and you stink. The people are going to blame you and hate you all over again. If you're seeing an Alabama and you've got more money and you're not the guy people are going to blame depends on how soft yard say. I don't know it's not a bad gig to be working underneath Nick Sabin. It's especially when people talk shit about y'all don't you take one of those jobs to give yourself a shot at a head. Coaching job shots though. But this was a shot. There's another shot. Don't you take the Alabama job to rehabilitate yourself and make yourself attractive? So that you can get maybe Colorado just one would think okay but then also some might think. Just take the the smooth and easy route and you still get to do what you love the NFL combine is this week It's an Indianapolis as we speak they. Npf Two year there but Joe Borough measured his hand. Size came in at nine nine inches very small and is NFL quarterback. Joe Made Fun of it on twitter saying look so perfect about retiring apparently the balls and slip out of my tiny little hands. So we're GONNA DIVE INTO THE COMBAT. Just a little bit just on the surface. I couldn't care less about joe boroughs hand size. I Know Colin Coward went on a Rant Colin cowards. A fucking idiot though so he went on. Did you see what did you see what he said? Yes what he say. No I didn't see I can tell you is what do you think it is? Vince? Young motherfucker now I might have muted Colin cowardice twitter. This is what he said. He went on there and he was talking about. Why do you think they measure hand size? Why don't you think they measure these things? Why are you so that you can see? If he's got small hands you can see. He's not smart and he said that's why I didn't like Vince. Young coming out of college. When Vince Young came out of college I compared him a lot to Tibo. What the John came out? Four fucking years before Tebow came out. It's unbelievable like just straight up. Math would tell you that. Steve said he said what Tim Tebow was anybody. Call him out on it. Yeah yeah he's been gone. Tim Tebow is a senior in high school. And Vince Young. When is the last year compared him to tempt said? When Vince young was coming out everybody liked him. I compared him to Tim Tebow. That's what he said that's Colin Coward set. Who paid billions of dollars to do this shit? Maybe not billions zillions. Possibly I what I don't understand. Is that these networks. What they do is they. They don't come out and they're not self aware when they say like. I just messed up like I just didn't know what I was talking about like just now when you asked me if I saw with Colin Coward said I didn't but I can say that why can't you just come. Listen guys I fucked up. I shouldn't have said that. Has He said anything? Has He made any excuse? I don't know I wouldn't listen if he did so. I don't know how can you even put those two people on the same sentence unless he met that he was trying to compare Tim. Tibo VINCE YOUNG. And he just makes you could say that. Maybe he makes up the names. He was very insurance. Adamant are well. So Joe Borough hand size is not even just about the hand size. It's just for me. It's like any time. There's a guy like Joe Borough who is. I mean we're talking about potentially the best college quarterback of all time but even somebody else. That's that's in that caliber and people fucking lose their minds when they're not going to run the forty when they're not gonNA throw when they're not going to go through drills and they're like. Oh what does he have to hide? He has absolutely nothing to prove for me. The combine is so much more about guys that are right on that bubble of getting drafted. I think people have a lot more to gain by performing in the combine. If you don't necessarily know where they're going to fall in the draft Joe. Borough has no business doing anything at the combine. If I was him I would tell everyone. Fuck themselves when they ask me. Oh would you be okay if you'RE GONNA go to Cincinnati like it's like the media wants hem or people in his position to say something because you know it's like like John Elway was able to finagle his way out or Eli Manning? Whatever like Joe Borough doesn't need to do shit in Indianapolis and he still probably going to be the number. One overall draft pick and people are acting like this is a new phenomenon every year. They act like it's a new phenomenon that these guys aren't aren't going to do anything. I don't get it absolutely perfectly said Casey. I agree with him but I want you to weigh in on that. Don't just listen to me and then go on. No you're right. I think I think borough listen anything I just stuff yes no. I really did nine so that was just a stick that you were pulling it wasn't I now. I stick myself into not really knowing what the people are. Losing their minds about him. Not Yes so Joe Borough to me when we get to combine we get to underwear season and you start to hear people say well tour Joe Borough to a to a to zero zero. The one thing I keep coming back to his. I have a very nice TV and it gets HDTV. And every Saturday. I can watch teams play and I never saw anything like I saw with Joe Borough this year. I never saw anything. Quarterback go as quickly to the elite. The top of the sport as he did he was other worldly. And if you want to measure as hand you WanNa measures feet going to measure as balls whatever you want to measure you gotTa Sclerotic. You've got fifteen games worth of tape that you can measure this year and see that this guy made throws and plays nobody's ever made and I don't know I don't know how you could even start a discussion point like I know to as healthy. I know this. I know that unusual to performing in the combine or a pro day situation. Or WHATEVER THEY'RE GONNA DO. That's important because he was injured and people were like. How is he going to be able to bounce back? What the FUCK DOES JOE? Borough have to gain by doing anything until he's in an NFL uniform. Anything during two little hands Joe Borough also like at. What point do we stop talking about the size of hands? What our point because matter it matters not for we talk about somebody's hands..
"first thing" Discussed on Being Well with Dr. Rick Hanson
"Simple thing to focus on each day. Just one thing to do for your personal wellbeing and development as we continue to interview some fantastic experts. Were asking them for their just one thing just one thing that they do each day for their own well-being so here's just one thing with Jack. Cornfield what would you say is the most important thing that you do inside of your own mind. Each day for your own wellbeing A. I'm not sure I do anything. By borealis except myself as I am which is a weird thing to say said some kind of weird but we all are so.

I'm betting you have most people who like movies like to watch them again and again. Have you noticed one time a long time ago. Somebody said why would you watch a movie again and again and again if you already seen it one time and I said well if it's a good movie kind of feels good to watch it. Is that okay with you. Some people say it's not watch it. One time a move on I think there's certain comfort and joy in watching things again and again and again and as you get older and older you kind of smile like man. That's an watching Dante's peak the other day that volcano movie wow does it ever look old and boy disappears rods and look so young and we all but I was watching the movie city city slickers you remember that city slickers the group of city slickers who who went out in the country dude ranch for a while and they went on an adventure in that movie Mitch. He was on a mission to find his purpose. If there was a single solution for everybody he didn't know that at the time then again he was searching out real searching. I think your your purpose in life is to find your purpose. I believe that and I also believe it. If you don't know what your purposes see purposes to go look for your purpose. That's about it so we've haven't finding it. Don't worry about it. Your purpose is to just to go look for it. How cool is that explore. The possibility don't get freaked out if you don't know exactly what you're supposed to be doing there's a really good chance you'll spend your whole life completely. Happy be not actually understanding what you're supposed to be doing but you had good time along the way so you're is that there's nothing wrong with that. Is there no there's not that guy over there. We'll say there is you should know your purpose. You know what is the purpose is to get out of bed. Just look for what that makes me happy that's okay so don't freak out about it. Don't freak out at all about not doing exactly what you want to do quite get. It is coming to you as long as you keep looking for. It Mitch Cowboy you're under the cowboy is curly jank plants the guy that can do one arm push-ups onstage. A Jack had some very Sir Jack Ma curly. I should say curly. The character curly has very very interesting and very simple device advice. Do you know what the secret to life is. That's curly said remember that remember what he did. When he said Dat he races finger. He held his finger one finger up he said do you know what the the secret of life is. This and Mitch Billy Crystal looked at him and says do you mean your finger is the secret to life. Curley said no one thing it's just one thing you stick to that and while the rest of it doesn't mean any said Edward. It's one thing you stick to that and the rest of meaning that you have you ever noticed that happened in your life it when you're doing you and I love love to asset questions one of my favorite questions all the time so many people look at me and say what do you mean by that is what do you do when you're doing you and all. I mean is when you're hanging out when nobody's watching when you're not even thinking about a what are you doing when you're doing you. You're reading a book are you. Playing outside without pack is like I do sometimes. Are you going fishing. What are you doing when you're doing you. Are you working. Are you happy are are you content or you're worried what is it. What are you doing when you're doing you see. That's you and that's what you get to do and you think about it. Sometimes it gets a little bit too complicated indicated oftentimes and I see this more often than not. That's what I mean. oftentimes people are so caught up and getting caught up they. They often don't recognize when they're just doing what they do. I think that's where you find that one thing c-can happiness seeking purpose helping out building a legacy. Is that really what it is or is bigger than that is way above your paygrade and my pay grade is really really big. Some people think it is some people think it has religious just connotations. I don't know about that for sure. Maybe if it does for you it does. What's the one thing that's most important in life one thing just one thing if you've got that figured out nothing else matters. Mitch said but but but what is that one thing curly that's what you'll have to find out and it's not the case and so many times these days people are looking for others to the answers. I can give you that answer. I can't tell the one thing is to you. I do one thing about me. I know that I've vigorous. GonNa take me my entire life to completely confirm the one thing. I think I know what it is for me. I'm pretty sure but I don't really know for sure but I'm Kinda. Kinda sure that the day that I that I'm laying there and take my last breath. I'll probably go got it got it and and that'll that'll be that you want to expand their entire life searching outside themselves. Why what is important quietly rages inside of them most happily moved through the day with little or no thought but the search continues doesn't it until they finally figured out curly secret it won't what are you doing. Are you quietly moving through day. It's not thinking about anything or your or your raging through the day trying to figure out life. One thing is in fact different for everybody. There's no doubt about that. I also think it's far less exciting and it's a whole lot easier finding a think and always remember if you haven't found your purpose purpose of life is to seek your purpose and sometimes it shows up when you just do. It's not fancy. It's it's not pretty. It's not romantic. It's not special. It's not exciting. It's not what everybody says. They WANNA do and get behind closed doors. They wish you had could it.
