"That seen this cursing god. It's it's i didn't end. Yeah swimming at the in the com- what a great scene. Yep so you don't feel like he's he's punching it forest he's punching it everything else. Yeah yeah but that's the the is is marvel to how what a a line between him being kind of an antagonised forrest gump than to being genuine friends and aberration. All that kinda stuff plus. It's one of the cooler like triumphant beats like that they're out in this crazy store and they're the only fishing boat left that never shrimp and then like after. That trump was easy. There's this leg. Is this shrimp everywhere. This montage of them shrimping. And it's the line. I don't know if this song was out at the time it probably was. But there's a scene where he's trying to catch shrimp and he can't catch schrafft's says bubba tommy everything he knows about shrimp in. But you know what i found. I'm thinking all right please. Please let him say shrimp. And ain't easy come so close. He says shrimp and his tough man. If you remember that would that would have been hilarious. Brian also noticed the first time. Baba is going around vietnam with the Helmet because all the different shifts Written on it and grease paint or whatever his says i'd rather be shrimping he's crompton a jungles vietnam with the rifle shot at by charlie rather restricted man. Voyager bet his car at a bumper sticker on it said that too. I loved everything about i. Talk about this. And i started thinking about this movie. 'cause i for whatever reason i started watching clips of forrest gump but everything about him. Being in army the drill sergeant screaming and his face insane. He's a genius and like how bolivia's both him and bubba like the baba is like you know like the drill starts screaming and i interrupt his shrimp scampi speech and then as soon as he leaves off it's lightly anyway. You can also make gum. I i love those two characters and how perfect the are for each other and also like the the busing reprised. Ginny thing where he's like. You know people are like. I can't sit by meek and do this and the one guy had. This movie is super cute. In that way right the coincidences the to repeated scenarios as the ways that he gets into situations and the way. They connect the dots on his journey. It's very very cute. And in some places it's a little too cute for my taste. Only a couple giving example number. One thing that i think is too cute in this movie is him on the set of this talk show with john lennon. And he's asking him what's it like over in china and people are like and he says well the God nothing and john's is like no possessions. And then he gives him the second line of imagine and then he gives them the the and then the talk show host is like. I can't imagine that. And then john lennon's like it's easy if you try dick. This is too much. This is like i will grant you the watergate thing with nixon but you gotta take this out plus. It's not only to cuba. Makes john lennon. Looks like a massive asshole. Because he's gonna make it it. It doesn't feel sincere. It feels not just to keep. It also feels very fakey.

"The other thing that strikes me about that those early scenes Especially that opening scene where feather lands on him and puts it in his book in starts talking on a park bench. The the suit he's wearing. I don't know how they made such an ugly ill-fitting suit so iconic because when i see like a light cream color suit now of this style i think of forrest gump They they midst of the night. Didn't notice that they pointed side one of the articles. I read pointed this out that like every time they do at time jump. They always center it on tom. Hanks wearing kind of like some kind of cream colored outfit with that chequered. Blue periwinkle shirt. He's a little boy when he goes to like goes to high school football. When you go every single time they re him in that outfit and they add a coat too. I thought that was kind of a neat. But you're right it is iconic and it's only something like forrest gump can pull off tap ice cream suit with the periwinkle checker and the hideous worn out nights dow with like tube socks sport socks on the ways in the speaking. I wanna talk a little bit more. Gary sinise because like he's doing such a great performance in this got oscar nomination. But it's not just like the bulging but like there's a couple of light his line readings where like he's up legless and the crows nest and he's like that's where we'll find stripped by boy and he does a lot of things were like. I think we've come across shitty when he's kind of like making fun of forest or he's trying to joke forces too dumb to get the jokes explain it. There's a fine line. He's walking between being mean the forest. And i honestly i talked about this before we had a forest gump and our friend circle and it's always like it was. It was sometimes hard to walk the line between valuing their friendship and their humanity. And also just how fucking annoying they could be with with their with their handicaps. Especially as a young man as yeah. We were teenagers dealing with the you know But i thought like it is a deft touch. He had when those line like on the dock. Where he you know is talking about getting the sea legs and comes on. And he's like i know idiotic but dislike i. There's a part of it is when he's at his low point and he he sticks up for forest you know I dunno it's is the fact that you understand his anger right you understand. Did they make lieutenant. Dan of very sympathetic character in his own right And sympathetic in his anger. And i think you understand that. It's not directed at forest. It's directed at the universe. It's directed at dismiss destiny. Yay god is sometimes very literally directive..

"And like you know he said something that that's a great thing about the movie with forrest gump skating to say something profound and moving about vietnam and none of us can hear it. Did you see this what what tom. hanks said. the actual lines were no. I'm super curious. It's sometimes when people go to vietnam. They go home to their mommas without any legs. Sometimes they don't go home at all. That's a bad thing. That's all i have to say about that. Wow but that's what he said. Oh man i mean that's that's good. That's good that's true. Yeah i'll say this to me incessantly quote all the time is jimmy's boyfriend at the protest. This it's just a lot of times when we're apologizing for snapping at each other. We'll start like that. It's just this this war lying son of a bitch johnson also. I also really love forest gums. Fighting style launches in with both both fists piston eating every single time. He just he just flies out. You start putting searches like just like piston punches at the guy and i really like this is my favorite fight. Sequences number one. This guy has come. This guy is so fucking blowhard. He lays hands on genie. That's not cool. But i love. How like the black panther do like the panthers or cohen for the separate. And he's like on. Let whitey fight it out of ring. Watching these white guys beat up his out of each other at the black panthers headquarters. I love it. Love it can. I hit you. Missed a theory for what i think. The actual framework of this movie is okay. I think that this movie is all about shoes from from the very opening scene. Where four as you tell looking into somebody shoes then if you track forest journey through his life every i would say almost every if not every single phase of his life is marked by some distinctive type of shoe from cleats well from starting with his magic legs right as a child. Avenues leg braces to cleats. When he's a football star to army boots when he's in the military or combat boots when he's in the military Slippers when he's in the military hospital. I would say the only one i can't think for sure of type of shoe is like ping pong shoes. Elton specific pingpong trainers or some. He fought in his Gi issued slippers hospital slippers. He might he he he pong. Then you've got the running shoes later on right gene so the probably no shoes or or boat shoes. I dunno. I forgot about that. 'cause like i was thinking like when you're This theory is like there's a lot of like kind of meet the goddess Hero archetype energy because like shoes are often given to him by a woman. Important woman figure his mom gives them the magic shoes. Ginny gives him the nike that he runs across the country. In fact that's the thing. I noticed like i noticed new things when i watched this movie but like when they opened up. He's wearing those fucking nights. Yes those natty. Acid worn out thread bird that the ginny gave him to go meet ginny Because in his mind. That's like not the d. shoes are wildly inappropriate for me to wear but like that's something that ginny gave me and i want. I want her to know that. The i love her and thinks he's important touchstone for him. I know i like it..

"Rainman and dustin hoffman definitely obviously is playing autistic character but there are a lot of similarities. Right there's like right a certain way. The tom hanks moves in this movie. That makes you feel like it. The thing about this movie is i. I don't want the movie to ever make fun of forest for his intelligence or lack thereof. It does at times like his football coaches good example. Right like the boy. That boys is the some. I've ever seen but boy can run. Yeah that that is making fun of him but also he so competent he so capable that you never feel bad for forest in those moments right. You feel almost like you. People don't understand what this person is capable of. You feel like these people are the stupid ones because they don't see for it right. Yeah you can't one hundred percent. And the fact that like his mother from an early age built that kind of wall around him. The where like you know you're going to be talked about you but like don't listen to them. You know stupid is a stupid does like. I don't like sally fields. In a lot of stuff but i really thought and the the she kills it as as his mother and some of the formative experiences he has with ginny. And then the fact that like. That's something else about forest becomes his character like anyone that treats him with any kind of respect or normalcy. He just as they have the lifelong loyalty for better or worse yet. No baba jenny lieutenant. Dan his mother and I i don't know like. I said forrest gump isn't essentially. Just really good guy and he is it is it is weird. Because you're right it's like you know rainman. is institutionalized you know. He'd probably ma'am. I don't know maybe we talked about a lot of work that he could maybe have some kind of more independence than than he does. But like forrest. Gump is like the opposite. He's right where like clearly he's impaired. But you know not to go to the whole tropic thunder speech but demands war hero. He's a ping pong champion. Yeah he he's started a successful company like he's he's able to function and navigate and the real world but that's where we i think we need to describe what the movie is because i imagine a lot of people you know we're we're talking with the millennials and the zuma's maybe not as seen this movie and i don't want to think of it i don't you think about these. These are these are films made for our parents and their sensibilities and it might be a little bit too much but I liked to film. This film is about forrest. Gump he it starts from his early days as a kid He's got several things He's got some kind of leg disability. That makes them not be able to walk correctly. He's got very limited iq But his mother wants only the best for him demands that he has a quality education. And how those foundations lead him on an improbable series of it's making him College football star a war hero owner operator of company. weaving in and out of us history with president's From the like we sent you take him from the fifties to the late eighties.

The Story of Auld Lang Syne
"Well when this time of year rolls around you probably will hear one song and one song in particular seemingly over and over again. Quick note here. I was listening to my christmas traditional songs. And i kept hearing it. But what song am i talking about. Well i just told you old. Elaine sign it does have a rather big nostalgia meaning to it and along with it here in the united states. A bit of sadness and usually marks an emotional scene or we action. The song. old lang sign was originally written in scottish. When taken apart and put back together again. An- actually means old long sense and is translated yet again to mean all times sake or for the sake of old times this song that is mostly sung and means the emotional conclusion to another year. And don't we need that. It also means that one must remember people from their past and raise a toast to them. Originally it was written many many years ago as a scottish celebration song. Old lang zayn is actually a scottish language. Written by robert burns in seventeen eighty eight and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. But did you know that. In the netherlands. It is a soccer anthem and in japan. It is a song about firefly's and and south korea. It was the national anthem until nineteen forty eight. It is known as being easily adaptable and mostly all musical styles. That is why it is so cool but at its core it is well known and many countries especially in the english speaking world. It's traditional use. Being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve it is also sung at funerals graduations and as a farewell or ending to other asians the international scouting movement in many countries uses it to close jamborees and other functions and a little note here when i was watching the crown on netflix day. Sung it when they said goodbye to the prime minister. Certainly most of us know the song old lang zayn but to quote from the first stanza of the english version of the james watson ballad. Here it goes should be aware since be forgot and never thought upon the flames of love extinguished and fully past and gone is thy sweetheart now grown so cold that loving breast of nine the thou cast never once reflect on old lang zayn in scotland. It is common practice that everyone joins hands with the person next to them. To form a great circle around the dance floor at the beginning of the last verse. Everyone crosses their arms across their breast so that the right hand reaches out to the neighbor on the left side and vice versa win the tune ends everyone rushes to the middle while still holding hands when the circle is re established everyone turns under the arms to end up facing outward with hands still joined in countries other than scotland. The hands are often crossed from the beginning of the song at variance with scottish custom. And did you know. The scottish practice was demonstrated by queen elizabeth second at the millennium dome celebrations for the year. Two thousand some press outlets berated her for not properly crossing her arms. She was unaware that she was incorrectly. Following the scottish tradition and because of its easy tune and melody it was also used as a song to signify for the war to end having the title. I wish the war was over and it was a popular anti-slavery song entitled fling out. The anti slavery flag both were using old anxiety as the basis for those songs. If you listen closely you can hear the song all lang sign and many movies too. Well did you know that these movies are we willie winkle a nineteen thirty seven. Shirley temple movie when her character sings to console a dying soldier. Mr smith goes to washington the nineteen thirty nine movie. Ocean's eleven the original of nineteen sixty as background music and the poseidon adventure one of my favorites that was made in nineteen seventy two ghostbusters and nineteen eighty nine. When harry met sally in nineteen eighty nine as well forrest gump in nineteen ninety four and elf and two thousand and three and most notably the very last song that is in the movie. It's a wonderful life with jimmy stewart. It is after all probably the best feel good ending in a classic movie ever with plenty of emotion for the main character at the last scene of the movie which brings george bailey the main character to tears as he acknowledges how great life really is and it is always at the stroke of midnight composer guy lombardi would play it on the radio and continued the tradition for fifty years afterwards. Dick clark took it up to play at the stroke of midnight on. Dick clark's new year's rocking eve. Every year and new york city as the big ball dropped at the stroke of midnight but after dick clark retired from the show ryan. Seacrest did the same at the stroke of midnight every year. They all had something in common with playing the song. It was an remembrance of those that came before and at the same time to mark the new year. All the fans and celebrators would sing along to the classic song so this year twenty twenty when the clock strikes. Twelve a m sing along to this classic song. Even if you don't know all the words we are indeed saying goodbye to twenty twenty

Maria Town: Disability Rights Are LGBTQ+ Rights
"Disability looks like so many things right, and in fact over one third of the Lgbtq community, house disability, so if you don't have one, absolutely have a friend or loved one does, and you'll hear Maria. Today disability is not a sign of weakness is a sign of strength, resilience and survival. So, let's get to it. This is Maria town. Know preparing for this interview I was thinking about all the different aspects of queer life, or or should I say my queer life because I was specifically thinking about how not accessible they are yeah, and one of the biggest and most visible examples I think is pride, fried celebrations, and I'm just curious about what is in your experience with pride. Pride is interesting. The idea of walking in a parade is very exclusive for a lot of people. There is always biased towards being able to physically show up and watch or debate in a parade that I think our experience with Corona virus may change I hope that various pride committees and organizations across the country are actually thinking about virtual engagement in subsequent years, and how that can be a complement to in-person engagements, but there's all of the events that surround pride typically in June, that often revolve around alcohol and substance abuse in tree, then is a disability having pride so closely tied to alcohol companies creates a lack of access for a lot of people in. In Our community I've never thought about that is alcoholism is classified as disability to be specific it's it's addiction in treatment, so if you are actively experiencing alcoholism and not seeking treatment than it wouldn't fall into disability, you know that's what the law says I. Think we can look at addiction more broadly as as a disability. Ask something that does impact someone's activities of daily living in their ability to accomplish them. You know for someone who is seeking treatment for addiction. They are entitled to reasonable accommodations in their job. If they need a flexible work schedule, so they can go to a meeting. All of those fit under the umbrella of reasonable accommodations the ADA. Issue that I wish more people in the community understood and were open about new sort of diction falls within the ADA, the American disability act or I guess If you're currently in treatment, right I, think people in the queer community knew so many people in treatment. Is that a Bra Lee known thing that you are legally able to ask you like work for time off to go to meetings and stuff so I don't think it is I think that most people's understanding of disability is fairly narrow, and that's very unfortunate the disability. Disability. Community is huge. It's extremely diverse and I think most people when they think of disability, even people within the community. If they haven't had an opportunity to really get to know the disability rights community, maybe think about disability in terms of someone who uses a wheelchair or someone who is blind, but in fact disability covers. You know people who have cancer people who have AIDS HIV. It's a really really broad category. In fact, so broad that people with disabilities are the largest minority group in the United States, and there are one billion. Billion people with disabilities around the world, those numbers are crazy especially, since on on this podcast, we talk about representation all the time, mainly for Queer people in the media, but we think about representation for those at disabilities, if the numbers are so small, if as you said, it is the largest minority group on even with representations right like we are so as a community, so accustomed to seeing disabled characters, being played by non disabled actors, like what's the easiest way to win an Oscar have able bodied person play somebody with a disability. Disability right like Daniel. Day Lewis in my left foot. Shirley's there on in Monster Forrest gump all Oscar winners, all non-disabled people playing people with disabilities I think when we talk about representation, it can't just be like disabled characters. It needs to be disabled riders writing the stories that needs to be production, the whole kit and caboodle,
How to Tell When It's Time to Splurge
"In our day jobs. We get to help folks make financial decisions and a lot. The top people equate that to like how save more build wealth. How do this thing but we talk about all the time? One of our favorite things to do is to be that voice reason that tells tells people when they can take their foot off the pedal where they can actually enjoy some of the fruits of their labor. We just did a show. That's always were to the show ideas. Come from what we just on that show. We're I I was very self confessional about the fact that I'm no longer consider myself a tight. What now if you were attending the livestream I still have a lot of tightwad tendencies? I just can't get those out of my system but it is one of those things where I love it when we talked about this in pre show planning we are now that you unleashed windy. We tell clients that they could actually spend. When do we tell people we're going to be able to that? Ought to be a show. When do we actually get to live like no one else? We hear these things. You're saving saving saving but Wendy. When do you start to put that needle over to? It's okay and give yourself permission. Because that's the biggest thing one of the favourite parts of being financial advisor. Here's the negative. You have to tell people. They're spending too much but there is a huge positive. Actually for a lot of our clients is that they've been so good at accumulating assets. They actually have a hard time. Tom Breaking the habit of building that we tell them. It's okay to start consuming contrite and I love it when we get to break that point to them I think one of the common misnomers that people have is that oh well that happens at retirement or that happens at the financial independence. Were actually going to talk to you today. About not only. Does it happen there. But they're actually times throughout your accumulation accumulation journey throughout your building journey. Where you can give yourself the freedom even if you're young even if you're early on even if you're in the beginning stages where it's okay to spin so long asks you're doing the things you're supposed to do so let's jump right into these and I was so excited about this slide? And here's the first slide is is foosteps are followed by the way. Here's what I think is awesome. I'd like to tell you my entire life is very. I can't say Mr Magoo because I just gotten to be so old forrest gump might very well become. It's kind of getting everyone recognize but I do feel like I m the accidental success story on most things and once again I've stumbled into something awesome is that we've been talking about for years. Financial Order of operations. I mean it is one of the if I call it money guy won a one. You want to understand financial order of operations. One of our. I came here it was youtube or podcast world but money got family members said we love the foosteps house. Like Oh oh my gosh. This is one step closer today Grohl because it is because when I do all this stuff completely by accident I'm like this means that Dave Grohl on are meant to be best friends. Ah I mean it really is a son that we're supposed to thunder Dave. If you're listening we'd love to have you on the show. So let's talk about this because I do WanNa talk about well. Financial Order of operations. This is one of those things and we're going to go much deeper in this. I've got some things in the works even late last night I was working on some ideas with his financial order of operations and I wanted to kind of go through this rather quickly and we know that we have other resources in the past that people can look into but this is when we talk about financial order of operations. But let's go through these pretty quickly and science sign number. One is not that you've completed it but that you are following the steps correctly and so in order to know if you're following the steps correctly you have to actually know what the steps are so step number one of the money orders. Operations is the deductibles covered You WanNa make sure that you have that money set aside that can get you out of the ditch if things things are going haywire you at least have enough to cover health insurance deductibles auto deductibles homeowners deductibles whatever's required. If there were a catastrophic event you have it there to get you out of the pitch this is where you know most people we know the stats. I'M GONNA cover it in a minute. Most people can't come up with a thousand dollars. So you're right. This is just to keep you from the danger. He's home. You have a really yarn poppin bottles on number one. This is just like I said to keep this thing from running aground and remember because I don't think I set up the the the financial order of operations. What makes this so foundational? Is that just like we talk about time. We think a lot of finances very math. Based I mean matter of fact people get onto onto they say no behavior behavior. Well Yeah we get the behavior but if you're not taking if you're neglecting the maths or you are doing this thing all wrong and that's why we just spoke. Oh could a group of structural engineers. We got hard to come up and talk about that. In the first thing we did was we showed him a math equation. That had exponents in it. It had parentheses it had multiplication tables had division had some subtraction and addition and we ask them we said how in the world did you guys know how to do this and and they all were able to say you know I was ordered. Operation is us which was an always. Screw this up but it's like please excuse my dear aunt sally you nailed it see. That's the first time I've ever heard you get it right so but it's the same thing so I wanted to give the context so that everybody understood. Why is this so powerful finances finances is the same as the way you do order of operations with math? You need to do it in the right order so you actually make your system as efficient as
Whoever has the best story wins the sale!
"You'd we're talking about using the incredible power of a well-crafted story it's titled Whoever has the Best Story Wins the sale. Well there's an old saying that data tells a story cells. That's a flashy little saying but think about this statistic when speaking to an audience audience and when you get done only five percent of the people in that room will remember statistic after you finish your presentation however if instead of a statistic you use a story a whopping sixty three percent will remember the story you told again by percent will remember statistic sixty three percent will remember a story. And if you don't believe me if you don't believe me let's just test yourself. which do you remember more your sixth grade American history class or the historical scenes from forrest? Gump both of them more history. One had a great story attached to it for most of us. Sixth sixth grade was so long ago. We can't even remember the teacher's name let alone what she said why. We think it's because it was boring. Well not so. It's the simple fact of how difficult it is for our minds to remember a number or statistic sixth grade history lessons are off on a series of facts and figures dates. However if you put that story into a personalized history as in the popular movie forrest? Gump you can instantly and fondly recall all the moments of history when he went through. Why is this important? When selling the farmers an agribusiness buyers because we are all convinced everyone of us is convinced is that we need to charge out into the marketplace with all of our research proven data and sell value with a proven? Roi Return on investment and. That's what we we all do so from our customers point of view the farmer in our business buyers all day long they're besieged by an army of sales people showing and how good their products are with their statistical data. Please don't misunderstand me. I'm not saying that data and stats aren't important. They certainly are important and we. We need to have them to prove our products effectiveness if or when needed however they are just too forgettable and they're all the same or their counter. Dick Victory in your customer just decides you know what I don't believe any of it. I'm just GONNA pass to win the sale. We need to get the message across to our customers and make it stick in their memory to accomplish this. We can use the incredible power of a fitting well-crafted story we using stories to sell in a professional exciting. It's not just sitting around with your friends. Sitting around the Campfire telling stories. Stories had cell have a structure to them. They described the before during bring in after they quickly depict the struggle and solution which struggle the one your product salves and the one. This customer has which which solution the solution not your solutions a very subtle difference. But I think it's important to position this as the solution that works not referred to it as your solution very small difference that sends a little better message so stop relying completely on data and start telling better stories. We're here are a couple of tips number one. The three components needed for every sale story. Our situation solution success. These are part of every sales workshop by put on. It's not a natural born talent for us to go around telling selling stores we need to learn structure and how how to build these effective selling storage while it takes a little time to learn the process and get the right stories. Developed is well worth on their next sales call when they had from the workshop and try to sell the next prospect number two. What if I don't have stories? The only requirement for story is that it be true and accurate. If you're new to the company and don't have a lot of your own stories to tell fear not check with your manager your peers. Your fellow department managers ask that person that's been around the office for forty years asked them for stories on the products and services. You sell us their stories until you have your own now. I think it's only fair to let your customers snow. If it's not your exact story that you are involved with however if it's your products from your company it really shouldn't matter that is not your direct story. Lastly I want to leave you with this thought. Is We think in pictures. Just take the next thirty seconds and reminisce about any significant moment in your life your graduation in your wedding. The birth of a child your last big sales success something hilarious that happened on a sales call or something completely embarrassing now. How did you remember it? Did you remember it as a data as date on a calendar or did you see the actual events in your memory with vivid pictures short mental video clips of what actually happened. How proud is everyone clapped for you on stage or how embarrassed you felt when you made a big mistake you actually saw yourself turning red and seeing the looks on people's faces as you felt embarrassed? My guess is you remember the short video clips and images of it actually happening. Our minds are wired to remember or stories not sequences of numbers enclosing. Remember this. I've been to a lot of presentations Sales meetings a lot of meetings in general following any presentation. I have never heard ever heard anyone. Say Wow did you see slight forty six. That was amazing but we do hear people remembering the stories that a presenter tells we all these stories over in our mind we see the
Edward Norton Discusses His New Film 'Motherless Brooklyn'
"Everybody. I'm Peter Travers this popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie out now that I truly love called motherless Brooklyn which is written directed and starred my guest Edward Norton Great Devere then too long. It's been way too but I talk about long as long as I've known you which has has to be going on twenty years. We've been talking about mother. It was really you've been. That book came out. Jonathan Lethem's book came out and he said I'm going to do that. Yeah this is going to be. But it's finally here. Peter I told you I would and I did I did but you know I can't wait another twenty wanted to do it. But how do you feel now. Really good I when something's been rattling around your head for a long time it is it is nice to get it out. It's sort of like I relate. My character has to read syndrome and obsessive compulsive disorder and when he talks about having glass in the brain. And that's a little bit how this project was for me. It was like glass in my brain. I want. It was uncomfortable and I wanted to. I did want to get get it out but apart from that personal compulsion to see it through. I'm happy with the way it came out. Maybe maybe more than I usually am. Actually it's saying the things I wanted to say and I think maybe you commented on this. It's it's sort of. I don't think it would have had the resonance that that it has now ten years ago. Honestly We were talking about this before we started just the difficulty of course as he has commented on very eloquently. I think in his kind of elegy to the how difficult theatrical films have gotten how difficult it has gotten to release original theatrical films. It's it's always a struggle for filmmakers to make original Ville visions. It's always been you see the cast we had in this film. We have Bruce Willis and Willem Defoe and Alec Baldwin and Google about the Ron and Bobby Kennedy Volley in great great actors. But you still have to. You still have to sort of struggle to find the resources is you need to make it. And I wasn't and I didn't need them. Two hundred million easy. My I got all my actors working the free on my actors worked for nothing to help me get it made honestly but you still but you still have to still have to figure it out. Well there's so many things in terms of mother Louis Brooklyn about what you have to do even with a studio backing him. You have a movie that maybe they don't know what the title is. Maybe maybe they never read Jonathan's book it'd be they're saying what's it about right. I'll what is this and that money has to be poured into letting them know what it is. Ask because not presold been John Game. Yeah No to do the property those things and look in my case. I I was there saying look. I WanNa make a big old fashioned period epoch about New York in the vein of the Godfather or L. A. confidential confidential. or any any of these great old fashioned movie experiences I think demonstrably audiences really loved right when they're good. We all love of those films and and I wanted to mash it up a little bit with other another type of movie. I love which you also have a pure you know sort of the underdog the the forrest gump. The Rain Man That idea of a a hero. whose very unusual has an unusual condition edition? That you've never seen before that you feel empathy for and the empathy that you feel for him the the fact that you immediately. You're on his side. That's part of what that's what pulls you through. A murky. It takes is one of the nicest guys you've ever played. WELL HE IS I. I think he's well. It's funny and someone said to me you've done a lot of people with Conditions are afflictions. I said No. I've done a lot of people who are fating conditions or yeah like like primal fear baking the score with Deniro in American History X. There's no faking. He's he's just. He's angry mentally ill and the truth is this character. He's not mentally ill he. Just has he has terrip syndrome so people they call him freak show but he's he's smart and he's intelligent. He's he's susu sensitive. The great thing about watching this movie is that it takes awhile sometimes for you to say my brain isn't working like Lionel's right. Oh He's piecing together this puzzle in his own head his own synapses and we're trying to put a linear thing that isn't there. No Oh but I I actually the only thing that I just. I think that Agreeing in house district buys by a certain point story. I think when characters this goes back to like J D Salinger Holden caulfield and catcher in the Rye when sometimes when a character tells you his own story right from the start you you relate you feel the emotional hook and I think if you set that hook early with a character if in this case Lionel in a classic detective voice over where he tells you I have something wrong with me. I struggle with it. I I have friends. Who Understand? Me like Bruce Willis but not everybody does and it's it's tough. You know you start to go. Oh I inside this guy I understand him. You want him to do well. You don't want him to trip himself up. You're always reform. I I just think what you're doing you're saying I don't quite know how he's piecing it together doesn't tell you know and that goes to what you've done with Jonathan Lethem's book set in the late nineties but you send it back in time as through the fifty S. I don't think anybody ever knew what to read sets the well. That's what you just said is part of the reason we put it in the fifties the the the isolation the characters isolation not just in terms of other people being a little less sensitive calling him freak show But if you know that he doesn't even know what he has your even more sympathetic. It's it's it's even more isolating to not know what's wrong with you in some sense but the other thing was honestly Jonathan and I both really like those movies. The the the old fashioned atmospheric feeling of those noir films from that era. The novel motherless Brooklyn Brooklyn is very interior it's inside the characters head but obviously a film is a big a bigger canvas. You have you've got to create a landscape for people to look cat and it's great landscape. Yeah it's that whole fifties thing that's going on in New York and why. Why no is called called motherless Brooklyn Yeah you know why basically has nobody so no one looking for him? But he has Bruce Willis's character yes when a minutes boys so he he has something. And that's how this movie starts. It's about who killed my mentor. Who did this and then we get what to me? She has a real chinatown by. which is where's what's festering underneath this? It's not just who murdered character. What's going on? It's it's what's going on. Well you had the water in La. That was going on. You Know Chinatown chinatowns. Great because it's about La's original sin. It's not just about Out a mystery it's about the idea that La is built on crime. And that's and that's that's what I like about our foams. They they do. What you said is exactly right? It says hey they say hey yes. It's a certain mystery and a certain emotional relationship is driving why he's investigating but really what what this about is the more he he takes us into the shadow we realize there are things going on in what we call our democratic like Galateri in New York society that are violently antagonistic to everything. We say we believe in which we see through the out Baldwin Characters or Robert Moses type character master builder under a person that says I'm GonNa create the city to look like this and then cuts out anybody who's an outside anybody who is into one percenter right which which is what goes to the topicality. Yeah even now and was a racist t the total race. Yeah and I think that idea of the way that the way that we actually baked people talk about institutional racism but discrimination was literally baked into the Way New York was built into a modern city. They literally did do things like lower bridges to the new beaches. They overpasses they set them too. Low for buses is to clear them. Because they didn't want black and Latino minority citizens coming to the new public beaches so they literally limited access and people think that sounds like a conspiracy theory but it happened though it did happen and we see it and yet these are things that you have in your screenplay screenplay this book added to. Yes what was in the book right when you collaborate with somebody like Jonathan Right. WHO's a really terrific right? I really great writer. Is He with you on. I couldn't have done what I did on. This was bowled you could call it. Yeah but but he doesn't say what have you done. No no no no. I wouldn't do that without checking it out out with him. I I felt that I felt there was reasons to set it in the fifties. We talked about that. He liked that idea because he likes those films and I think he he knew is fill his book we had a certain Surreal Meta modernism. If you WANNA call it data it's really about the interior life of this character. He he wasn't so married to the plot per se. The plot didn't wasn't like the story of my family or the story of my city. It was it's a very Byzantine mazed. It's really an excuse to write the character in some sense. You know he also loves Raymond Chandler and you know those guys marlow at the detective. Active in Chandler with went through a couple of novels right so we kind of approached it like his great character going into another the next another another story in terms of taking a movie which you've described we've talked about it now and putting it on the screen. Do you worry about it reaching reaching an audience putting out kind of putting out work that you do that you you have a deep feeling for is always It's always got Certain emotional risk no matter how thick skin you get over the years no matter how many no matter how many you know. I've been through quite a few experiences like I'm getting a a nice honor from the camera. Image Festival in Poland this year. It's the Great Cinematography Festival right. And they sent me a rundown of the films they wanted to review in this thing. And it's amazing like at the top line of of those kinds of assessments of films. I've done that people think are really Definitive or something like that. You have like fight club. And he's always in there and the twenty fifth and American history x is always in there and none of those films did well.
"forrest gump" Discussed on Unspooled
"It's it's much worse than your for his impression. But I was listening to a little bit of of the government co- audio book and at the end Governo references all the Oscars. I need to hear this days. Just one more thing to tell and that is when they decided decided to make a movie of my life story. That is unusual. Even for me somebody got wind of the fact that I am idiot. Who who has made good and in these days is what they call a man bites dog sort of story? So one day these Hollywood producers comment for me. I am going to be in the motion pictures. Well a lot of you know the rest they done made the show and everybody all over the world went to see it. Well finally it become the night to go to the Academy Awards Show in California and I took everybody. That was my friends there and we set in audience. I even got to set with Bubbas folks and damn if the pitcher didn't win most of the academy the awards and at the end after they get through thanking everybody else they decided to thank me to they was a Mr Letterman as the host. A Nice Feller with big picket teeth and a trick dog and Shit and as the last item on the menu so to speak he announces they is. He's a special award for Oh forrest gump for being the most lovable certified idiot in America and I am called to the stage in after they. Give me the award Mr Letterman asked if they is any thin I would like to say to the TV cameras. And in fact they is and I've been been saving it up as so I look out there on all them fancy dresses and expensive jewelry and pretty women and handsome men and says the first thing that comes to my mind which is of course I got to pee clearly. He doesn't know how the Academy Awards work. I mean I don't think they give out the awards for the most lovable idiot. So unless it's David Letterman bit. Which I doubt would happen at the end of the joke? They normally top load the bits well. I'm really impressed. By your fact checking given that in his book as I already told you he befriends Saddam Hussein. But you can tell from the way that this is written. You're right it has much mature sarcastic. Point of view. I mean you're using the passive voice I think really really tellingly. Yeah like I think there's something really interesting about the the most famous line. Life is like a box of chocolates. The line of the book. Look the first book is let me see this. Being an idiot is no box of chocolates. That's very different sentiment. I mean incredibly really different. It's kind of this movie even say it's based on this book to be honest point. I think all of the changes in emissions say a lot about what American audiences want to see and what they don't I mean you're one hundred percent right now as film has kind of Gone Past. It's time you know and we can reflect on it. It's been I think. Thank you the same way that you and I are looking at this film. But it premier magazine called it one of its twenty most overrated films of all time also on the list Nashville with was eighty writer. Two Thousand and one and gone with the wind delicious though. I don't agree with most of these choices. How do you wrestle with a film home with this? That I think we've not dealt with. That culturally is more significant than the film is good. I mean I think maybe by listening to the people who do love love this movie. Okay Yeah I can only as this podcast is going on. We have a lot of people yelling at their stereo. I think it's time to give them a chance to see yell into the episode and Tell us their or defense of forrest. Gump I don't know if I can give you reasons why forrest gump should be on the guy but I can tell you. I like it as a movie movie. I think it's a very sweet epic so epic films are so sad and so horrible and forrest Gump is just a nice sweet little vision of what one person can achieve in a lifetime and I think that's that's really that's really nice. I think it's a good message in a film Tom The other thing I really like about it is I love the The American history that you've got throughout the film. It's really cool to watch all of those. Those things in American history happened through the eyes of her. I the history nerd. It was really cool when I was a kid. I still feel like the movie Should it be on the list. I don't know but I certainly enjoy watching it And I enjoyed watching it again so forrest. GUMP is one of my favorite movies. He's a long time one of my top ten favorite movies. I love Tom Hanks. In that movie he's brilliant as forrest. Gump the music is amazing and I love enforced in the fact that he remains constant throughout the changing world that he's surrounded by is is not not one of the best cities is beautiful. It is wonderful to watch if motion are almost Tom Hanks to that. Is this National Robin. My if you the food and that and this lovely traffic watch. I grew up on the Gulf coast. I went to the University of Alabama I featured it really. He is revolutionary in terms of special effects. it's a heartwarming. Optimistic started about a truly outstanding security which can be really easy to claim as cheesy cheesy as they cynical world but It's hard not to get wrapped up in his. Just good nature. And yes the history that he participate centers wonky and maybe a little little wrong and could spend the wrong message but I think the character force themselves spreads all the right message wall. Hey guys so as far ars forrest Gump goes visit belong. I don't know but for me. It has all the makings of a decent film. And it's like comfort food in the same way that like my mom's pancakes aren't really GonNa win any awards and baking competitions but because I grew up with them and they have a special place and they have all these wonderful I still eat them even though they're not the best thing kicks in the world on top of that. I think that we can't ignore Mike. Is's attention to detail you know like the the the fact that the pass it officiates at force. Jenny's wedding is the same pastor that owned that runs the church. That force donated all the money to publishers for the new roof. For the fact that at the end of the film he still has the old gum mailbox that was there for the entirety of the film or the fact that in every single photo of force taken his iser closed impassioned some poor photographer trying to do a spread for Time magazine or Congressional Medal of honor winners or whatever trying to coast this poor man to keep is open for just one photo and and those kind of details or what the Mike is known for and and I think those things make it a movie that's worth watching just for the entertainment value forrest Gump is a film has generated an exponential amount of criticism ranging from the snarky comments from outlying critics during his day due to the problematic observations. People can easily make today despite my agreement with many of these criticisms I saw this movie during my formative years and cannot seem to unload unloaded. It was telling when I saw the curious case of Benjamin Button another film from the same screenwriter during my twenties and got all the same fields and I clearly howdy Eddie from this for rich. Well paced narration accompanied by Clever Editing Gorgeous Cinematography and beautiful music. All on a service of making long passages. I'm like I did a song or something less chaotic than the random craziness that like it bottom line. This movie is comfort food. This still seems to work for me when I was growing up. It was my grandmother's listed as one of them had feared dementia and we were lucky out by or she crazy that she would cry a lot and one of the things in the world stop. Crying was play are V. Hr trying to copy for. And I know that is totally anecdotal evidence. But I don't actually have a problem and with fairly terrible being on the list to grandmother from crying so that's also also casting those are really great Calls and I think it it triggered me what I have a connection into in this film is that it is. It's a fun movie to watch. It feels light and nice and sweet and optimistic was a word I really loved. Yeah like they do have so many callers. made the illusion of this film as being food you'd have nourishing them in some sort of away like pancakes and I think there's a slot for that. I I have films that I would not put on the topless. I feel fill me up while I was going to say I wouldn't want to take all the cracker barrel off the interstate. I mean that's that's comfort food. That's the best comfort food. I've never been to one. Amy GotTa get yourself to a cracker barrel. It's so good good. Did one of the callers say that this was Tom. Hanks thanks at his most smashed You didn't feel it. I mean I got that yet. Amy All wanted to do was ride. That I wanted to ride forrest gump into the bone zone zone. Wow that's a sequel. That should exist name zone bone zone okay. So there's one more call I would like to listen to. This is from This is a call from somebody who very near and dear to our hearts. This is from Kim trucks. Yes we love. Kimchi is the person and behind all of our amazing photoshop. Easy on instagram and on twitter She does one for every one of her films. And and you've actually all work on our website at UNSCHOOLED POD DOT com. Yes she is one hundred one thousand one billion percent the best and she has her own very personal connection to forrest gump. it's contractual I'm the one that it creates. The episode Artie Tweak I don't really like four is gone but I wasn't college in Savannah while they were filming movie We would go watching film all the time and they probably see Yada out of the background somewhere because we constantly were riding our bikes through the sets just to get to class But the popularity of the movie really brought a ton more tourism to Savannah and everybody just wanted to come see see that bench and Sort of forced the city to really clean up and revitalize a big part of it. That was sort of in bad shape and rundown and abandoned Handan. So even though I don't really like it as a movie and it's definitely shouldn't be on the list I sort of have a soft spot for it and probably always will a little bit so thanks guys. I love that point of view that forrest gump. As an action of changes it has a place to help urban development You know who would have thought I. I really like that too and you know what. I'm just going to pick a random extra whose face I can't see and I'm is going to decide that. Is Kim my head. forevermore will thank you Kim and make sure you follow her on all the social media things Because she's just the best and we couldn't didn't have a big part of our show without her which is amazing pieces of art your instead of reading a night of us we usually do. Let's not I think I think we you've been voice. Let's just have that Stan as a positive voice and I do want to say actually recently As a website try to figure out state by state what the most popular films of the nineties. Were you know by looking like what's what are people watching. What are people renting and all of these different states and forrest? GUMP does happen to be the number one nineties movie for the people. I Love Mississippi Alabama Georgia in South Carolina. They all love forrest gump. Still I also by the way if you want to know the other the other the other state facts. Here's a couple of Florida. Likes men in Black Black Ohio liked home alone. Colorado says Austin powers. Alaska says Terminator Two Oklahoma of Courses Twister California where the state of Mrs Doubtfire in in Nineteen States. Most of the East Coast my birth state of Michigan. They say titanic and look this movie works. It does work in in listening to everybody. Say how they feel about it But can I just say how much more interesting with this movie. You've been if someone Terry Gilliam directed it because he was attached. Jerry Seinfeld was attach. Attach Terry Gilliam would have been the interesting. One probably would never have been finished but but also absurdist absurdity really fits the time of the book. We need something. I'm here. Yeah I mean this movie takes this story at face value right absolutely a face value. It's like Boris would have a lot of us them of not. Tell me how things really worse Russell America must have been okay except for the shootings of famous people..

"You cannot totally trust but the cast Tom Hanks. It was a person that America that will always trust with anything. Tom Hanks the actor like either way choice to put them in the movie right but I mean the way the characters written though. There's no ambiguity on on him at all. I mean and this is what I'm talking about like about the growth of the character. There's growth the character because the character is written not. I don't know about the novel but in this film to not grow like really not grow. It's like it's it's big. There is a growth there. I mean a physical and and also like commendable growth but here the character is Kinda just locked in amber and he is being pushed around and and it's a bummer because he is going through all sorts of but it doesn't really affect him I. I don't think yeah I mean I think the most team gets to a sort of dim awareness that there might eight be some meaning to the things of his life. He becomes aware that there's a question but he doesn't become aware so much of the answer. I mean here. Let's even listen to him. Explain it at the very end of the film. Don't know Mama with Ride Fifth Lieutenant Dan. I don't know if we each have a destiny or if we're all just floating around around accidental like on a breeze but a thank maybe it's both maybe both happen and got the same time. Aw I mean both is kind of the I took your mic out of the out of the PA system answer. You're going to go with both sides on this. Well that's you know it's a little Oba too little too late it's sort of like I don't buy this from this character after I've spent two and a half hours with them I just don't. This is a character. Dr Who when telling a story about lieutenant dangles. He locked to exercise his arms. And that's how we talked about drinking and it's like well first of all you're right so you're at this base level of knowledge that you you're telling us now like your thing is arms you could like if he says okay. He had a drinking problem of you if you acknowledge if you showed him at any point starting to acknowledge things differently mean but no the voice over is saying he liked to exercise his arms. You know I realized he actually had a problem with bottles. I would even take that but like I don't take the guy who's saying like exercise arms is this and and now you're that's a good point because he's telling the story now and he has no perspective on it which is weird because some of the things you would hope he would have any understanding on it now by things that happened later to me. The big one that we very early on is that Jenny his love is life was molested by her dad yes which he never. He never really seem to comprehend. He'd she doesn't like to go home she does. He sees her angry. He doesn't he never picks up and even when they go back as adults Throws rocks at the windows keen. Ever understands what happened to Jenny and others when I first I saw this movie and has a kid. I didn't understand what happened any. Oh I mean like going back and watching it and Oh my God. I felt like I felt very because he goes. He locked. Herger a law and kiss her and wrote down. This movie is dark. Dark movie is one of the opening scenes like the school principal. Hard fucking fucking his mom and I'm sorry I'm cursing so many times in this podcast but that's a crazy scene show in a PG movie like a little kid outside his mom's window listening to his mom Sellafield get just railed by this principle and then at any does it to get him into school..

'Green Book' suffers from Hollywood's Common 'Magical Negro' Problem
"I know we talked about green book Schorr did. But the Oscars are this Sunday. And this will be might win best picture Lord. No Roma please let Roma win. I think we have to talk about it. Because there's one scene that I cannot get out of my mind. Okay. Which one so it's the scene were Tony Villalonga. Who is the Italian American guy from the Bronx who's been hired to drive. Don, Shirley, this black musician, two gigs. Okay. So it's a scene where Tony saves dawn from a bunch of unruly racist at a bar. I mean, I can imagine. What bothered you about that? But why bother you? This scene is meant to teach the audience that the guys that are beating up Don are the real racists. And Tony is kind of like a milk toast racist. He's not that bad of a racist. He's only ever called Don a couple of names behind his back and kind to face and the whole movie up into this point has given you the impression that Tony doesn't like black people. But the moment the movie takes you into the scene in the bar. You understand actually these are the real racist because they're capable of physical violence against someone just because they're black and Tony he's not really a bad guy after all a little bit of needing. He needs a little bit of coaxing. But you know, what he's actually on the right side of things, and you can bring him back over to the right side to the good side of history. And it's inferior eating it's infuriating Wesley. The idea that racism is only bad if it escalates into physical violence, and that's the tiny little microaggressions things that dehumanize. Is and demoralize and stereotype aren't actually really bad types of racism after all, so maybe they get a pass. Right. It feels like a very sanitize seen about racial mix that's designed specifically to make audiences fill better about themselves, and is amazing that you're bringing this up on the weekend of the Academy Awards. Yes. These same Academy Awards in which green book is nominated for five Oscars and is likely to win two or three including picture. Yeah. And you know, it's in company with movies like star is born in the favorite and vice about Dick Cheney, and of course, black klansman and Black Panther, right? Boy, if green book does win it'll be a really good company with the best picture winners of the last thirty years specifically when it comes to films about race, right? I just think America is obsessed with this sort of racial healing fantasy where there is a work that like being near. A black person can do to rehabilitate prejudice people and all that rubbing up against yelling at friction tension touching. Hugging. Driving will bring him to the light. Right. It's its own trope. Yeah. Right. What other films in the past have done this? What are you thinking about? I don't know. I mean, if we're just staying in the in the thirty year window, something like Forrest Gump. Ninety four win best picture ninety five the story of the very simple man name. Forrest Gump mom, always said life was lack of box chocolates sits on a bench and start just talking to anybody who sits down next to him about his his life. Never know what you're going to get. He winds up befriending. This other guy named Bubba Goodall. Bubba good day. You can catch pounds. Shrimp. Shrimp is the fruit of deceit. You can vote ball broad bike it so both have the same IQ. But the point is that force is the person on the journey and a person like Bubba is another step along the way. So one of which puts them on campus when George Wallace's denouncing the integration of university of Alabama. Right. And part of that sequence when Vivian Malone was one of the new black students drops her notebook on the way inside the school, the visual effects, people make it. So that forced picks up the notebook enhance it to Vivian. And it's just weird to me. Like, you realize like that like the movies about forest, not Vivian who? I would say has a much more interesting American story to tell. I country is all about and it isn't the forest gets made a better person because of black people. But it is the forest gets to look scans or not even see a lot of the problems in this country, all of which are shoulder by Jenny who played by Robin rate who is near some Black Panthers who do nothing when she's beaten up by her white piece boyfriend, the racial politics. This movie are crazy anyway, all the politics in this movie to be fair are crazy, but they all sort of benefit for his Gump the fantasy here, of course, if you're good enough and simple enough, America's racial problems can be hailed give this movie a best picture Oscar. Okay. I mean, what else crash best picture winner a two thousand six Lord. A movie. So frightening. The Geno worth refuses to watch it facts facts, only, basically, it's one of these race and racism are driving. Everybody in Los Angeles out of their minds, the Persians the Mexicans the white people the black people, but the thing that really takes me out. His you have all of these different people of different races all being nasty to each other because of race, but guess who the redeemed characters are in this movie. Oh my God. I don't even want to know, Sandra. Bullock, of course, like the second biggest racist in the movie, she gets carjacked, by ludicrous and Lorenzo Tate. Maybe I'm Alexis really tough. My think it'd be best. If you just went upstairs random, wait for them to break in. I just had a gun pointed in my favorite lower. Your voice was my fault. Because I knew it was going to happen. But the white person's he's two black men walking towards her. And she turns and walks in the other direction. She's a racist. Right. Well, I. Got scared, and I didn't say anything attend seconds later. I had a gun in my face. Now. I am telling you you're a Migo in. There is going to sell are key to one of his homes and miss time. It'd be really fucking great. If you acted like you actually gave us shit. And then what happens? She falls down the steps on a lot of pain killers or something. And decides at her Mexican-made Maria is her new best friend. I assume area wants to go home. But you know, we don't know 'cause movies out about Maria. It's about Sandra Bullock, but the real star that movie is Matt Dillon racists cop. Matt Dillon feels up Tandy Newton at a traffic doesn't like black people, but certainly put his hands all over a black woman. So she gets into a horrible car crash cars on fire cast who comes in to save the day. Hear me permissible be your. To get an extinguisher. Good that fire. Best supporting actor nomination for that gentleman. Okay. I'll get you out not Dylan approves he's not a racist because he's capable of saving some black person's life. Even after he's violated it and then driving miss daisy. Of this sort of problem. And it wins. Best picture nineteen ninety came out in eighty nine huge hit. Yeah. Better movie than you think. Actually, because I think it understands the thing that you and I are talking about right? There is something inherently impossible about black people and white people being friends at least, according to the way, the country is set up to like have both those friends be equal in the friendship. So it is a story of this old Jewish woman. Daisy were them. Sorry. This old named daisy were than related I hope. hope Not. not. Our son bully hires Hoke Morgan Freeman to drive her. And home nowhere else.

"forrest gump" Discussed on Thrivetime Show | Business School without the BS
"So you can achieve both time and financial freedom. But the one drawback I have found to helping people. The one problem chop I've found to helping people chief financial freedom is this once somebody achieves financial freedom, some people don't know what to do next. There's a scene from Forrest Gump Forrest Gump, the epic movie starring Tom Hanks, where he discovers that he's rich and so Captain Dan, his buddy, let's know that he took some of the money that forest gave him and invested it in a fruit company. In the fruit company has done well, and so he's rich and so forth. Gump was asked by somebody, you know, how do you feel now that you're, you know, wealthy and your financial free what he is, but it's just one less thing to think about. And so, and that's all it is. That's the whole point of a business is to have one thing to think about. That's all it is only reason for starting company. And so there's a psychological term called flow state and then has a take on this. There's there's a cycle. There's a a term that psychologists use called flow state, and it is a state of mind or a state of being where you feel energized focused full involvement and joint in the process or the activity that you're doing. An essence flow is characterized by having complete absorption in what one does, and then you as a result lose track of space and time because you're just having such a good time. And so I challenge you Mr. listener to implement the three action steps that were teaching today. MRs listener, I challenge you to implement the three action steps that we're going to teach today because my goal, my prayer, my hope is to help you not just. Financial success. I mean, what would be the point of having all the money in the world? If you didn't have of you didn't enjoy it. If you didn't enjoy the time freedom that you have. And I see a lot of business owners that I've helped achieve financial freedom in the literally say to meeting, they'll say, this is goes, they'll say, hey, I have question and I'll say what, and they'll say, I, I have a lot of money and I don't know what to do with my day. I don't know what to do. I, I'm bored and I'm feeling frustrated 'cause I don't know what I should be doing. And so I kind of go into the office and screw some things up. And I I, I've been networking a lot now and I'm kind of I don't know what I don't have a role. I don't. I don't feel like looking for some self worth. Right, right, right.
