"You one last thing that occurs to me is like who is this book. Good for you know because when i've read it like i just mentally substitute in the word later for a manager whenever you're saying like managers need to know their people it's like well that's true of all leaders right. I would say that the couple of concrete scenarios that have come to my mind we have summer interns that come at red hat and this means that sometimes our engineers become mentors for these interns so these engineers. They might not be managers. Never wanna be. But they're put into a miniature type role Because they need to learn how to lead these interns so i think that that book really applies in that situation beautiful. What pops the my mind there too is the classic well. The definition often of mentor though is like advice giver. So so yes. If you're if you're so. I guess maybe a challenge for me. Maybe from you as well be if you're putting in if you're put into a mentor role don't automatically assume that role you may get more powerful outcome for your men t if you also occasionally put on the hat of coach and maybe you wanna do with permission versus just assuming yeah iraqi and thanks so much. Thanks for your ongoing feedback on this book. It's been really really fun to talk about. Yeah yeah it's been fun for me too. Thanks for listening to the john pollster show notes links.

"Say that's not for me I like you I leave. Medics amid right I find fiving day. For me, I use insight timer as yes. Yes I love that. Out to too and I use the bells to kind of really back into consciousness. allows me five minutes a day to focus purely on deep breathing. And a friend of mine in the village actually invited me to join. An abundance group, it was a Stafa Deepak Chopra doing. And you would like send it out to invite people around and it was twenty one days. I said actually why not I love his voice And you you know you'd have to do something they'll toss Keach Day. Coming audio recording would come through in the WHATSAPP group in it was a deepak a meditation. Fifteen minutes, eight minutes, four minutes, twenty minutes. AGO Today Eight. And then he started talking about bringing abundance in your life and I got a little bit. Drink Green tea allied meditate and I love crystals and mystics virtual urology and I follow Buddhist lifestyle on to announce it. Good this study to knowing. I thought about I read toyed with it for a couple of days, right? Left the group I saw this uses information how yeah. I felt bad for about. Ten minutes. It's okay. I don't have to like it. Yeah. You did the experiment for eight days royal you needed to know to determine not for me. I didn't feel the need to draw that kind of abundance the I I wasn't buying into it. Doesn't change how I view the puck or any of his writings it hasn't stopped doing meditation on a daily basis thinking and breathing. I just couldn't do that. I feel as though sometimes, people don't want to start something. Because they're nervous if it's not right what it looks like to pull away from it because you're talking about. But the choices that we make before we make a choice. Yen what's underneath that? which is probably a whole different conversation is judgment. Like acceptance. Of, I Brad am not into this abundance thing full stop vs I'm not into this thing and there's something wrong with me because all these other people are doing and aren't you supposed to be grateful and have oh my gosh what is wrong with me? I'm a bad person like all the judgment judgment judgment. So that would be another place. I would totally challenge people look as you're going throughout your day. What are you critiquing in evaluating and if you`re I mean half the time or more than I catch myself doing and other people. When I catch onto that I realized oh my gosh a whole bunch of going on inside of me to right so oh man that's a whole `nother place to go while I think we've got on x third-line. Stumbled on. Paul. I'm on. That may maybe we've come full circle actually because we started out when the question around the New Year observing you Kinda give. That would choice and actually as we kind of maybe draw to replace in this choice that can lean ultimately to the judgment piece, which is going to be able to. Do you want to choose, and again choice do you want to continue? To keep judging yourself or judging this other person and does that lead you to somewhere that you is that ultimately beneficial to you are in coaching speak is it serving you right? Spoiler alert? No but you've got to decide that choosing yourself. The hard way so. Share, lots of hard things. Yes. Maybe. Ponder that is, is the fun of East conversations, right? Because it's not other perspective of recognizing. That we will have these frail teams right. In accepting them? Yes. Precisely and he? I there will come a point where we're no longer lockdown I accepted I call this coast sessions anymore. time-limited event this whole process. Now then it'll be unlocked. I guess. Coming out of lockdown. John Pay as you're in my phone Thank you so much for a really engaging and almost like a appetizer it's Now actually, I'm looking forward to ready.

"Week from now. Given the rate of change who knows but it's not a week from now it's now. So I'm just going to choose now to be happy with what's in front of me. Six different places there. You can just pick whatever one like. Yes. It's a I think that brings us to the. To, the choice when again and see we have the ability to to shoes and to be able to to make those choices. We need to get out of the box we need to of that author piece. It's not necessarily easy. To get out of the box. That, we can listen to the signals that are telling us that we are in the box. It's. Too could fill type I. Think. Yeah I like to think of it like meditation to like in Meditation. The idea of just returning your mind wanders, you return return return to this is a lifelong practice. But again, it's not judging yourself when you get into the box to because going to be like I'm in the box again, I'm such an idiot I should know this by now. forgiveness. Forgiveness Monaco. The trust my I struggle with a meditation I was thinking really not good at it. And then. I had some seeing about. The. Practice of meditation. And understood our. Okay. So the fact that my mind wanders it's It's what might do so yep, it will happen so. That's the practice you mind to wander. You will notice it and you will go back to what was your practice day? Yeah. and. Develop that kind of muscle in a way that that helps you to do. It's better, but it will continue to happen. Anyway. That's. But you better not noticing and going back to your practice, and that's the point. Though I think by noticing when you wind books. And noticing the signals detention in the shoulder. Uh or whatever. Physical signal you can. You can feel. That's a good thing. That's a good. Good step fallout and that's that's that's where we are you want to. Speaking in places to go. Any other places you think we should go. Property I think and the people who are listening I hope On joy to that discussion already to read the anatomy of peace and and.

"Gay Can totally see you doing that. Like like with surprised me thank you. So there's this piece about speaking truth to power and I think what might get in the way for me is also this this piece around etiquette so Michelle. Obama is silly elegant and well-mannered Blake. She doesn't get ruffled and and yet she can still say the really hard thing. So it's like how do you? How do you cut to the quick but still be polite? Maybe that's why I shrink back and is there a way that you could like if you were Tim Body? Michelle Obama like right. Well that be OK. Well it'd be standing up and be like a foot taller because she's really tall and make standing upright now by the way I am standing up right now are you are you. GonNa. I'M GONNA crouch down the way she the way she has to crouch down because she's not even on the same plane as everybody else. She's just like up in the in the awesome clouds. Are you going to get on a really great pantsuit because she has some really killer outfits in my mind I will put on a killer pantsuit so I feel like she would just have her hands behind her lake? It's all cool. She's you know. She reminds me of this saying that one of my meditation teachers used to say all the time which is just relaxed his power. He is to say that to me all the time so relaxed as power. What would it be like to be relaxed as power in the next meeting that you go into a situation where you see some of this bullying well the head? I just got standing here like this. Maybe even just my physical presence. I don't have to think of the exact right thing to say because just my energy and my attention are going to communicate enough to the group that I think it. It will begin to police itself. Well if you don't even have to say anything well because ideally here's the thing I don't mean this like pedantically. But ideally the group does police itself. Because you want them to be radically honest with each other. They're paying me to be there but I'd much rather them practice saying the hard thing to one another rather than having me step in and save it. Maybe what you've just reminded me is that there's an option to do this without the pressure of knowing the exact right thing to say. And it's really just focusing on the energy of the room what I WANNA project and that there's power ingest your physical presence. Wow Yeah when I'm just like it just got a shiver it's like the power of that embodiment like. Yeah I think this is a two for John. Because I actually think the archetype is is much more powerful when you add that embodiment piece which I'm not sure I ever even did with baby bird like back in our courses but I think you're bringing just a really important layer to this which is the embodiment is is the thing that kind of makes it even more real or and I love that you went there because so often people are like like I gotTa Get. Outta my chair like I have to move my body. You just did it naturally so to anyone else out there. Let's listen it's like come on like really you have to like move my body. Yes you've got off your but if you really WanNa get the full power this. You really can't do it all in your brain. We haven't uploaded our brains to the board yet. We still have bodies so while we still have bodies we should probably use them. Yes so there's a third. There's a third useful thing your body. You'd be surprised what can happen from the neck down Tino. What are your thoughts from the Peanut Gallery? So I had I had the privilege and pleasure to see Michelle. Obama speak in September. I was invited to speak at a conference has to buy linked in and she was the closing speaker and I was a few rows back because I thought I sat towards the front. She would see me. We'd make eye contact and then we'd become best friends. Are I love your imagination? Love and it turns out that Secret Service knew about the. I don't know how but they knew about me and I think I was on a special list of people who were never ever going to get her. She was amazing and there was. She emanated such a combination of power and presence and vulnerability and and I love the idea of of of embodying it. I have a hard time going there. I remember in class when I had to act out innocent child I had to think back to. I guess I should skip what what do innocent. Kids do physically. I guess I will bounce up and down but there is such power in at and using your body rather than just your brain take some practice but can be immensely worth it and I would say to. You don't have to do it in flick. The extra challenge of that class was that you had to do it in front of everyone you can just. I mean nobody saw me being Jaakko. I was on the phone and it still had the power. So it's not that you have to do it in front of a group. It's just move your body somewhere and something. We'll probably happen. That's going to be like a harder version of the yoga position. You know Selena how they're like if you WANNA make this more challenging just it in a room full of one hundred people looking at you you just met embodiment in. General is a really powerful thing. I mean whether or not the poses themselves work in this particular way that can be quantified. I think there's still like you're saying you're you're using your imagination and your body in as many ways as you can tap into the of that archetype yes. Just bring us back to a close here. Archetypes NEED INTENTION. Alley are very personal to us. Yes there are. Universal archetypes kings and wizards in hermits and towers. And things like that. However archetypes can very personal to us and archetypes are imbued with the meaning that we very intentionally put into them. And it's also it's like you can't but think power in the beauty of an archetype is like you think of the archetype if you pull. Sometimes the trick is like how can I remember to think of the archetype but in thinking? But it's like instant it comes with so much freight but in a good way. Yeah Yeah I love the idea of freight good freight. It sounds nicer than baggage. Which was the only thing I could think of? I'm Tina Robinson. I'm John Pollster. I'm Meg buzzy and this is.

"To Dorfman sports here on your favorite now. Here's an welcome back everybody. GotTa have the highlights. Still I mean. Even though we're not playing the Games you gotTa have the highlights and got to know that someday all these things will be back but quite frankly I'm okay with the world being put on hold right now and I think a lot of people have to understand the magnitude. The severity of what's going on you can't stop the spread of something. If you continue to congregate like I honestly feel like this. This virus should be called the stupidity virus. It's not corona virus. It's the stupidity virus that the stupidity of the people in the world. Honestly I'm sorry but get away from people. There is something to it anyways. Welcome back. I'm Andy Door. If it is the door fan sports weekend edition hanging out with me. Always does my tag team partner in crime. Mike Wilson. We are now going to hook up with our professor sports. None other than John Pollster do who comes to us in a different country of Canada. So I'm kind of interested to kind of hear what's going on in Canada but obviously good morning. John how are you doing very well? Thanks how `Bout You. We're doing good man. I can't complain I'm actually feeling really good I I have been fighting a little bit of a flu bug out the corona virus but a flu bug and quite frankly. I do feel a whole heck of a lot better and right now general. I'm trying my best to stay away from people as much as possible But I do have another job where I probably am going to be able to get out and see people a little bit because I coached tennis. So you know what unfortunately people are going to be out of school. They're going to need something to do. And quite frankly I'll be right there for them as much as possible. And with the social distancing thing. I don't think it's too much of a problem of being of being on a tennis court. Where somebody a solid twenty thirty feet away from me. Most of the time. But I'm being a little bit but I'm not kidding at the same time because we are going to need something to do with our time and it Kinda got me thinking John About the NHL and obviously the NBA and Major League Baseball. And just just all the sports in general but my angle with you today is going to be the angle that I'm gonNA use with a lot of the sports and quite frankly if they were to try and continue the season at some point. I think it would be relatively interesting to see how. Nhl Hockey could compete with Major League Baseball and for that matter NBA basketball. How could it compete with Major League Baseball? And maybe they stop trying to compete with. Nfl football and they start their seasons a little bit later quite frankly. I think it's actually an interesting concept and an interesting idea. Do you think the NHL would potentially try to battle with Major League baseball and start their seasons later even moving forward. Just just because of what happened here. I can't see it happening with the NHL. I can see it happening with basketball because basketball has also been known to be a little bit of a summer. Sport The Olympics and so on and so forth whereas the NHL of course when it's at the Olympics is in the Winter Olympics. I really don't see hockey being fell Especially in the southern climates the Florida's the Arizona Southern California. So I I just don't see that working because I know how Canadians feel about the Stanley Cup. Being presented in late June which is starting to get quite warm here. I can't see Canadians wanting to support it too much into the month of July and we all know it gets a little bit warmer in the south of the United States in June July than it does here in Canada so I can't see the NHL doing it I can see the NBA doing it And and it might free up some arena dates from the standpoint that there's probably twelve or thirteen teams in the NBA that share arenas with the NHL. So it might be a little bit better for scheduling but I don't see it happening With hockey quite frankly I think the hockey season goes on to late already so to extend it any further I'm not so sure it's good for the game. Good Morning John. Hope everything is good up there in Toronto My question is simply this once. You know once the team start wants to come back and you know. Things settled down and stuff You Know How is there? Anything that's GONNA change you know in terms of maybe pre-game stuff that that may go on to still protect the public and the players or are they just GonNa Kinda get right back to just how it always did everything pre-game post-game all those kinds o. Good Morning Mike Everything's good here thanks My family all healthy so That's that's always good news And hope for the same for you and your family but yeah I I can see when if and when hockey I speaking specifically hockey here because basketball is you know. It's not a sport that I follow closely as you to do with hockey. I can see things changing at least in the short term when they get back. I can see the pre-game Autographs. The Post Game. Press conferences the post-game autographs and that sorta stuff. I can see people being very cautious over that for. I'M GONNA say at least the balance of this season and maybe even into the start of next season. I'm assuming at this point that the twenty twenty one season is going to be played. I don't think this is going to be so serious that we put another season jeopardy I think this season is clearly at a risk but I don't see next season being a risk I think by that time they'll have this thing under control so yeah I can see some real changes in the short term but as always we sort of get back to our normal habits over time we get a little bit more confident and I can see a.

What sort of legacy are you working to create Julie Curtains on? This is an interesting question while I donate to the word legacy I guess what I would say is the relationship ideal which which is Some of what I do is I reduce unnecessary suffering. So so much of what we talked about. Some of the work together worked with my own coach. Why was unnecessary suffering a bit? We're putting ourselves through like so. I guess the legacy that I would see myself creating just be helping people to think. How can people to be and do differently?

"Keeping my parents proud is more important than being fulfilled. What's it real tape plane in your head? I wrote down the tape of self limiting beliefs that was playing in my head and they were far uglier on paper. Then I even confessed my beliefs to someone and once I was out of the closet. Well, the had to take action a highly recommend that process of writing down your limiting beliefs. There is something magic happens. Put them on paper. And she continues my amazing mentors. Seth Godin wrote a blog post called how do I get rid of the fear? This is what good rights alas. This is the wrong question. The only way to get rid of the fears to stop doing things that might not work to stop putting yourself out there to stop doing work that matters. No, the right question is how do I with the fear? Fear is not the enemy paralysis is the enemy where I might add to that lack of action. And then she goes on a little bit later, fears, human normal and even good failures. No fun. But they are failure isn't the end some is generally required. If we really want to get something great. If you're waiting to get to a point where you aren't scared anymore. You'll never arrive. This was good a little bit later about not having enough experience. Don't you think I need a few years of real work experience? I and then she says good experience Raillard rarely hurts. The only problem with needing more experience is that it's really similar to the excusive needy more money when you take a risk to start a new hustle. You'll never have enough money or enough experience. Does she mentioned a little earlier the notion of being afraid of what other people think are pleased into the people at sacrificing our own fulfillment, which is on page one sixty eight the biggest deal killer, isn't what other people say about us though. It's what we tell ourselves about what they say to us. No further on. She says, you decide if you want your life to be ruled by fear of what other say about you. Or if you're the CEO of your new life. If you let them win you're choosing to lock yourself up and give them the keys the world needs, your generous hustle. You need your generous hustle to feel alive. And then the last section. I thought was noteworthy was she talks about quitting page. One eight why do people say quitting is an option when it always is defies just like my high school wrestling days. I was the only girl when I started I could barely do ten consecutive pushups or one poll up everyday practice. The boys of beat me up so badly that I was thankful tab the entire girls locker room to myself once the torture was over I would cry looking over my bruises and feeling completely defeated. I wanted to quit nearly every single day. I just chose every day not quit. A little later on. She says refusing to quit is different from wanting to quit. It's so normal to want to quit. That's okay. Expect it. There are any other number of lessons and encouragements. And admissions more information like background on how the criminal Justice system, works and incarceration and all the disadvantages. That people that have been incarcerated face, if you wanna know more about this, again, the book is a second chance for you for me, and for the rest of us, another really really good book about the prison system, and how people end up there and just all that. And then also redemption coming as a result is a book called writing my wrongs life, death and redemption in an American prison, and it's by shocker signator last name is spelled S E N G H O R, and if your podcast listener, and you want to learn more about what it's like to be inside a prison. There's a really really fascinating podcast called ear hustle. That's produced inside San Quentin prison in the bay area. In california. They explore some of these similar issues as well. As just day-today. What is it like to live in prison? So there you go something a little different today. Little behind the curtain in terms of my interesting coaching in prison, and how that came about. And then some other encouragements that I think can apply to anyone in Katherine hoax book.

"Credit. And so what this draws out to is. So if you're to put these in order of like absolute most important to least important, by the way, there's a little matrix that can send you that makes the makes it really easy to put each one against each other. And then you a score will fall out. So that you don't have to do it. Manually perfect. Mitch blame very well over podcast, but he was wolf spreadsheet. It'd be great. And the thing that I would call out here is my hunch is your wife probably share some of these maybe not all of them. But in the instance, that she did which I think would be unlikely. But as possible, I guess you probably on you probably prioritize them in different order. So maybe respect just above integrity. And she puts integrity above respect. There's gonna be some situations where that's gonna cause some conflict. I don't know what it would be. But you could play with them the other ones like, so maybe creativity versus respect or creativity versus action. All right. I think we've covered everything that I could think of. So there you go. Well, if anyone out there wants help with their values, you know, where to find me the podcast, John pollster dot com or my website, John pollster dot com.

"Ago that I would have gotten that same feedback. Really? So I really believe that like this practice, and it's again, it's ten minutes. I've been recently trying to increase it to fifteen minutes. But I don't always do full fifteen minutes. I believe it's helped me to be more calm just in general. So it. Yeah. Super cool. I I was just about ready to talk to your challenge. What is that? I mean, not a challenge like do a gratitude journal, but I hear. Why you found it so much easier to be consistent with your meditation? Practice than your gratitude journal practice. I don't know. Okay. I think because I've seen a bigger payoff and other words, I sleep I go to sleep so much better now than I did a year ago, and I can't fathom trying to fall asleep now without meditating for ten minutes. Yeah. Because it really does turn the hamster wheel down to slow. I don't know that it turns it off. But it really does get the hamster wheel under control totally totally agree. And for me. That's the gratitude journal does for me because it gets me into the right mindset. And I mean, it's it's kind of funny because I have a fit bid, and I am obsessive about tracking my sleep and stuff and it's fascinating. Because you know, if you go to the records and look before I started this practice. It would take, you know, I'd be awake for a long time in bed, and then I falsely. But now, it's like, basically, I. Close my eyes. I'm out. Just awesome. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. I don't know that I fall asleep. Well, I typically will so. Yeah. My like my evening routine is I will like go to the my little office where it's quiet and do my ten minutes than I'll fill out the so the second part the evening part of the five minute journalis- three amazing things that happened today are three things, and I just removed that word because sometimes like everything is an amazing. So it's just like three positive things happen today. And then the last question is what would have made today better which to your weekly reflection. Question, you know, when I write five days in a row with today would have been better if I'd gotten up earlier on that six day is like ding Dong, you keep writing that it would be better. If you've got burn. So why don't you get up earlier tomorrow? So it's ten minutes. Meditating then I do the journal, and then, you know, get embedded in like read something, but I find that whereas used to read for thirty minutes before I got sleepy. Now. It's five ten minutes. I'm sleepy. And then I'm out which is miraculously amazing. And I think there's there's something magical about discharging things out of your brain. Right. So like by you know, gratitude or the the meditation or whatever it is just, you know, like in I find too, I'm you know, I I have ever known on my phone and on my ipad on my computer. So anytime, I been idea about whatever it is. I write it down into that. And that way, I don't have to spend any psychic energy keeping that in my brain until the next morning or whatever. It's just you know, I can write it down and let it go. And and I think a lot of the stuff with gratitude journal, and and meditating and that stuff really just releases those things that were trying to keep in our, you know, our personal ram in it gets Britain to a hard drive somewhere. And and you don't have to. Like D fragmented, I suppose some people would say, well, John, I thought you you meditate to get to a higher state of consciousness or whatever that is not my goal at all. I mean, maybe I should be pursuing that. I don't know. But it really is just it's just the calming and. Yeah, all the scattered thoughts and. The G fragging. That's really the old days of defrauding your hard drive. So it was better. Yeah. Totally. Super bowl. Yes. Someday. I may play with the the length of of meditating. But yeah for right now. I don't I guess that would be an amazing lecturing. If there was like an hour every day that I did that. Yeah. You know, what my gratitude journal? But I think you know, adopting your practice of daily meditation would be a really great adv for me. So I think I'm going to take that challenge. Even though you'd in Atlanta, I live in what's what was speaking to me too. As as we were going back and forth on that is for you. It was the gratitude journal for me the gratitude journal led to the meditation and for someone else out there might be something completely different. But you won't know until you try. That's so true. Yeah. I mean, I feel like the gratitude journalists the gateway to. The launchpad. I think whatever Pat you take the idea of mindfulness being centered on the things that make a difference to you. You know, the, yes, it you stand or I think that's incredibly powerful for for all of us. You know, people will tell me my my clients. Tell me all the time. Do you know my gratitude journal practice if I'm in a hurry. We'll take me about a minute right now. I mean, sometimes I think about it for a while. And sometimes I don't, but I mean, you have a minute. And what if that minute gives you five more minutes of deep sleep? Oh, yeah. That's a great tradeoff. Yes. Yes. Absolutely. So any party thoughts are challenges for people? Well, I love the idea of of a celebration challenge. You know, it's it's one that I gave to myself a couple months ago in so incorporated in to my my weekender practice, but I'm going to challenge you dawns. Impaired is to think about once a week find something to celebrate. And you know, Microsoft rations are cool. You know, could be I'm gonna be, you know. Comedy Diddy on YouTube or something like that for five minutes or whatever Dini prompts to like help people mine useful celebrations for them. Late to to figure out what kinds of or just or just kind of expand. You know, there's food there's spas. There's manicures pedicures if you're into that. Like what how expand the possibilities for us. Oh, well, geez. I you know, whatever, you're brainstorming is great. I think of environmental things, right? So what could I do to enhance my environment, or well, you know, maybe it's a new screen saver for my computer, or maybe maybe it's a piece of art that I can have in my home. Or maybe it's, you know, I don't know. But something about your virement, right? Maybe if you're always cold getting a little Spacey. You know, what kinds of things will would do mob in or maybe it's a scented, soap or something like that? But that's stuff that's environment. And then I also think about physics things for your physical self. So, you know, maybe, you know, getting a haircut or manicure massage. Rakia session, or you know, I love reflects on g too. I think that's like a groupie thing that has a component that I don't understand. But I think it's cool, but anything that you do for your body. Maybe it's taking hot bath or something that you know, how shower or something like that so environment in your body. And then then I think there's just kind of this delight factor right in, you know, it's like look things are just like, you know, I love to spend time with my seven year old nieces because they crack me up. They may be laugh so hard all the time that I just love spending time with them which works out great for my brother, too, because you know, onto times good, you know, I try I try to spend time with them just because they're so delightful. I love to color. I mean, that's dorky. But I have some coloring books in special, pens and stuff like. That net that's cool too. But you know, what kinds of things you some people love gardening, or, you know, again, you know, stuff that that just makes your heart sing in g like to listen to music, or or, you know, some of that that kinda stuff that that's fun when I like, the reinforcing nature of it. So like it it's I'm gonna eat Ben and Jerry's when I do this thing when I in my week. And then I'm seeing the lid on my wall. Like, it's the it's it's like it's like the loop is continuing its so praying for seem right? Yeah. Love it. And every time you look at like one of the things I love to do is travel. And so my bulletin board above my desk. I have you know, a photograph of a cool thing in New Orleans and a cityscape of Hong Kong. And in in a picture of the beach in Oregon, you know, I have a bunch of these things at every time. I look at him. I don't just see the image. I remember what it was like to be on that trip. And I think that that extra level of consciousness mindfulness really can make a huge difference. Whether that's in the celebration process or even a planning process, but in celebration processes well to do all over again. Yeah. So if people want to learn more about you, find your work work with you any of those things where should they go? Well, I have a website. It's Kate Dixon. K A T E D I Exo N dot org. I write a weekly blog on my website. And then I also published a monthly newsletter for people who are on my list in. There's all kinds of information about what other kinds of services that. I do. So check me out if you want, and this has been this has been awesome. John thank you on to Howard Beale. Yes. And we'll see how we'll see if I can improve my celebration impaired nece.

"But. My guess I just make it reverence for myself. It's it's consciously listening to podcast. Thank they did it today. I was so I've eliminated. Well, mostly kind of accept what I'm sneaky. And I quote handle it. I've shifted my news consumption to podcasts because there's nothing to click on and I can skip through it. And anyway, but today I made a conscious decision. No news podcasts into listen to a coaching podcast. So for me, it's it's really it's consuming stuff about other coaches being better code that kind of thing. And it doesn't have to be long could be fifteen minutes. Thirty minutes could be five. But it's that idea like you're saying with your daughters practice overtime equals mastery and learning and success a big fan of Mike complicated, Mike difficult. So that idea of even just five minutes a die. Is better than zero minutes. Yes. And five minutes day will start establishing a habit that when you stop doing it. You'll feel like something's missing and you can grow it can grow and grow it and shrink it is you need to. And this is great. You're talking about learning. This totally ties back into the book both in the Aspira section. And where did I say it? I think in the success success section as well. But I put it down as able always be learning. To make to make you able. But. Yeah. Decide that the definitely when you get into the success FIS, you can get to a point of. I know it all and that restricts your ability to kind of take on you information. And so keeping yourself in the mindset of always be learning, and I find what's wouldn't say working for me because I really don't enjoy it. But when I find things that challenge me, and I want to shut them down instantly. You'll find reason not to believe in it will look into it. I kind of realized how that's one of the things need to look at because it's it's nudging up against one of my values, and my beliefs, and if I look at it, I'm creating that self sealing logic bubble and reenter here. They're like when I was talking about this coaching thing that didn't go. Well for me. It was like I didn't want to. Yeah. Was that whole notion of not wanting to look at it like take a really honest look at like, well, did you really do your best work? Mel wasn't. Then it was like it was really easy to slip. It all the excuses of why versus just owning it. And just be like, well, okay. Wasn't my best work. And why is it that? I can't just sit with the fact that I failed and that it wasn't my best work. Yeah. And you know, if you look at that in the context of the final section of the book, you know, trying to understand rent here, China understand what did you learn from that file that you can incorporate into your life to not have this fattier again. So in your case, it could be more preparation was was the was the lesson recruit. Be in one of the things kind of hedge. You talk about was the maybe the difference in values values didn't align with your values. Something in NASO. Maybe the lesson is. Be clear on my values. Not apply for these things in the first place out at night, but yet relevant relevant blaming like, I just don't understand me. Get me or you know, it's it's not fair or whatever trying to understand. What can I take away from this experience that will help me be better in the future? Yeah. And there's also important in there is the openness the openness to what did I learn? And so a Pat myself on the back a little bit here. Hopefully, it's not my ego. But so I had this experience where I classified it as a failure. And yet I was kind of open to well, I wonder what I could've done different. I wonder what I could better. It was that openness that combined with some very direct feedback from clients. And I always start my coaching relationships with an agreement from the client that they will tell me if something's not working and someone took me up on it fairly early on and told me what was not working for them in the way that I was interacting with them and was fascinated with the tiny bit of a theme in what they were talking about that had come up in this context with this other situation, they weren't the same situation. But I was able to kind of look at all of them. And then another video that I have been watching and coaching and kind of watching this person style and thought, oh, if I put those three things together, there's this little thing that if I just took that from that could probably make my overall approach better. I tried it out. And then I checked him with the person next time. I said, okay. Try to take different approach. How did that feel? How does that work? And they were like, yes, totally worked. So. Yeah. I think that openness to doesn't feel good. But instead of trying to brush it away or explain it away or blame it. It's sitting with an and being with it. And I think this ties in really well to towards to the end of the book the section he talks about blame. And then he ends by talking about love, which I thought was like, oh where did that come from? But it really kinda works. So here's what he says on page two sixty in failure or adversity. It's so easy to hate hate defers blame it makes someone else responsible. It's a distraction too. We don't do much else when we're busy getting revenge or investing the wrongs that have supposedly been done to us. This get us any clear to where we want to be. No it just. Keeps us where we are. Or worse arrests are development entirely if we're already successful as Hearst. Was it tarnishes our legacy and turn sour which should be our golden years. Meanwhile, love is right there. Eagles open positive vulnerable, peaceful and productive. I was going to mention that sign pot as well as he was speaking and their examples in the book where he talks about he bringing power Neue, and you can see how blame and height. I guess fuel that because you humanize the person and making it all about you. And in reality if you just stop and think this is another human being by family. They have friends they have thoughts and feelings I have good is. I have bad is kind of brings them back down to the same end brings you back down to the same level, which I think was pot of pot of the whole underlying fame at the book was with special, and we're not special toped about Neil degrasse Tyson's quote about when he looks up at the universe. He realizes he's both big and small he's small because he's an infinitesimal pot of the universe. But he's big because he's a part of the universe. And I think that was really the kind of the whole balance of the book is to understand, you know, we're we're all different life pilots that make a special, but we're all on the same journey of life. That makes us the same. Yemen. A here in there is keep yourself in check. Keep stuff in check by. Any other things you want to check in on before we wrap this up Ernie challenges. You wanna give people I think we've done a great job of covering the book. And I love the way that it's ended on kind of the last part of the book, I think screen. Is that are you someone's going to bust us say that you were little ego there saying we did a great job? Just cut Paracels on the back is so awesome. I did like one of the things that I love helping people with is getting clarity and taking action because I believe that with clarity and action you end up having amazing outcomes. And you grow yourself belief. So in the spirit of that. How would you help someone tune this knowledge into action? I would start with some kind of daily. I can't say enough about the five minute journal. And I don't get any money. If you buy one, by the way, I do the written version, and somehow I convince Michael to start and he's doing the electric version, and he believe he loves it. So I would I I would start with maybe daily reflection that at the end of the day or the beginning of the day. My think the end of the day makes more sense. But you know, again, there's no you define what successes for you would be some type of daily check in to just say how did I do today? Where was where was my ego? Did it trip me up the undermine me? And if it did I would ask what can I learn from that? And what can I do differently versus trying to explain why it really wasn't my fault or get into the whole blame. Or deflection thing. How about you? Love it. I'm going to be less specific the new album. I really love your specific example, I feel like many jumping off point safe people so much would be to listen to this podcast and take one thing out of it and will on it commit to working on it for two weeks to to build a habit. So that could be reading the book, it could be looking at your purpose or your values. It could be the journaling as you spoke about John gifts. I have the electric version, and I am loving it. So I think there there are few things could be defined your own measure of success. So maybe just pick one of the many things and commit five minutes to looking at it inspecting on it writing about working on for two weeks and see what happens. So people wanna find out more about you, Michael or contact you or who knows what else where might they find you can go to my website, which is WWW dot change, the ending dot co and I called a change the ending because it's decided that we are on a journey and at any point we can make decisions that change the ending. So I think listening to this podcast is one action. You can take to change the ending fuel to go in a different direction.

"Financial freedom class through Portland in graduate school also discovered this whole world that I kinda knew was out there. But I didn't really know about the acronym. It's fire which is financially independent retired early. I don't subscribe to all of their notions. But that's a let's go it's like a whole nother world that it didn't really realize existed. So learns interesting things there too. I also relearned the power of a clean desk clutter. If there's any reoccurring theme through these stressful. Ashby months, it's been the clutter and not being able to find stuff just amplifies and doubles the stress level. So for about I don't know how many days during the Christmas holidays. My office my home office. Here was a disaster in it took me probably three or four days to clean it up of just. Chipping away at each day making decisions. But now I've got a desk space that only has things on it that use. I'm able to find what I need. And there is just something amazing about walking into it after I've been downtown at the capitol on cafe or out and about or even starting the day to walking into a desk space that is just completely free of joke and clutter. Also, did this my bedroom had closed and suitcases it just anyway, there's just stuff everywhere and so one morning on a quote workday. I went up there with the vacuum and everything and just went to town and cleaned it all up. So don't underestimate the power of decluttering and clean clear spaces when you're under stress during this time also learned the importance of having the right people to talk to learning and being reminded that certain people are helpful for certain things, and that you know, one person doesn't have to be your catchall for all areas of your life management hair would be the stay in regular contact with people that you consider to be part of your support network. Even if it's just a simple Heo is thinking of you. There's some can help you today. A couple more things along this theme of stress and decluttering was the realization of needing to focus consciously choosing what I'm focusing in time on prioritizing that focus, and then also just not allowing myself to add more stuff until something else went so one category. There was books. Reading way too many books. Is a result of journal next or size one morning, most discouraged about my health, and some just any number of things going on realizing that not only seeing these health providers helps me that also doing my own work and doing my part which was exercise which is just kind of followed by the wayside in. So I just started a free writing exercise my journal just writing about exercise and reflecting on it in relation to the habits built over the last probably since April of last year around daily journal in using the five minutes or rental and then a meditation practice where meditating. Ten minutes twice a day. Typically in the morning, typically a warning tonight in conjunction with right in the five minute journal and reflecting on like, what is working about this? Why do I have been able to do that so consistently not these other things? What here was that? With the journal in. It's simple. It's three prompts in the morning three things. What am I grateful for three things would it would make today? Great three things, and then a personal affirmation or a personal aspiration. You could also call it and then with meditation. It's like, well, it's ten minutes. I'll kinda make ten minutes happen. There's a place to track. It I start the app, and that's it. And I done it over an extremely long amount of time. Which is even a shock to me. What were the keys there while the keys with the journal in the meditation is that I was going to do it for at least forty one days. And then if I failed in my chain of forty one days, I would start over again. So I thought okay, what could I do with exercise? How could I make exercise easy? And so I did there was I said well just has to be thirty minutes. It can take these different forms and got to do it for forty days, and like the journal in the meditation I knocking to skip a day that was a that was becoming a very easy cop out of like, well, you know, kind of exercise lot yesterday. So, you know, my body needs to rest, and that's bogus. I think body needs to rest, but walking a couple of miles is, you know, in a given days, and I've done it for a long time is not a big deal. So I don't need quota arrestee from that. So starting on. In December thirty first. And now today is January eleventh I've done that I've done all these the journaling the exercise also added in. So this financial freedom class requires a lot of work, and I just have a requirement that have to spend thirty minutes on it every day. It doesn't matter what I get done. But I have to sit in concentrate for thirty minutes every day and all those books I mentioned earlier that I was reading that. I wasn't that. I hadn't been set. Those aside once I'm caught up on the financial, freedom course. And this other things I may pick some of those books up. I may not we'll see. So my challenge to you be. How are the daily routines in your own life? How can you make things into a habit? That's not onerous that just kind of becomes part of your muscle memory, the meditation in the journaling only conscious part of it in a given day is making sure that there's time to do it. So planning ahead if I don't do it. It will pop into my mind later that oh, you know, what you forgot to do it. But it doesn't happen that often because it's easily chief -able it's an established habit. And I know what I'm gonna do. Also during this time listen to a really good book on habits. Call the Tomek habits by James clear. I highly recommend that book. I listen to the audio form of it. And I requested the library when it comes in a just give it another quick skim read to pick out some other good things for but please do not fall into the trap of. Of getting a book on habits. So that you can finally get your habits going just get your habits going. I think continuing to read and research on these things can become a form of procrastination. The other thing that I'm doing is taking stock of each day. So created a little log in a in a document that's broken into three. It's a table three three columns, and I'm just reflecting on. So the headings our mind body and clients because I'm also doing a ninety day every single day as part of this new thing that I'm doing I'm reaching out to new person everyday just to build this habit. I wanna build a habit around being in contact with people and looking for ways to serve a naturally also fits into building my business and the idea behind this is if. Could build a habit. I believe I can around interacting with people and serving people and contacting and being in contact the same way that I've done journal in the meditation. The revenue side of my businesses eventually gonna take care of it self. So in this, and I'm using this document, by the way to also kind of track the different health things of like, well, what's working? What's not what am I noticing? Windu I feel better. When do I feel worse and just there's no judgment. There's no real formula to it is just I just kinda right down. Whatever comes to mind. It's been five ten minutes on that in the morning at night if I could chance easy at night as well. So that would be another suggestion here as well. To just kind of reflect on what's happening. A my plan is at the end of this month to go through that. And see what did I learn what are the patterns that? I see for win things get off track. Or when I'm not feeling as well as I'd like to. So my challenge to you would be to take a look at your life. Like, what's not working and what he will voiding? What do you know isn't working, but you're avoiding doing anything about it? Because you don't know what to do the story you tell yourself as a too hard to do something about it. Or something else? And if you wanna have a conversation with me about that love to do it. I have offered in several podcast up. So Steph a conversation with anyone that wants to this past year. One person took me up on that end. We ended up having fairly regular contact. And we still do. So I'm not saying that just because we have a conversation that we might become best friends. But anything is possible. I think what I could. I don't know if I could guarantee it, but I think that if we have conversation will both learn something, and it probably be interesting. So if there's something that I don't know sparked your interest in the things that I shared here that I'm learning or struggling with that you'd like to go deeper on or maybe even you know, there's a gap or there's something missing just like the dig a little deeper with another person that person be me love to have a conversation with you could also be that maybe your years off not off to the start the like it have and you wanna court correct before it's too late. Then when last encouragement around out to me, please don't make up stories about whether I'm too busy to talk to you. Or what you have to talk about is not important or. I'm pretty good management managing my time. Except when I'm not. But we'll you know, my encouragement, Hugh is to reach out. Yeah. Even if you're is off to good start. But you wanna supercharge it having a conversation and also be another great way to get that going figure out what that might be.

"It's it's a very open place. They they have perspectives and they take stands on certain things. But it's not it wasn't like your typical. Like the evangelical subculture that I grew up in which was like you need to believe this or your host. You have to do these things or you're going to be in big trouble. It was it was a much more. You know, where you coming from what you thinking where where how do you put this together? So that I think that's kind of where that was I guess that was part of the awakening of like, wait a minute. If if I commit to this course of my life is gonna take me in a certain direction. And it's it's doesn't totally resonate with me in a way that I think is going to that I'm gonna be able to like embrace long-term. And then where would that leave me? Okay. This doesn't seem like a good idea. And so I think that kind of sent me on the path of okay? Well, let me figure out what I do believe. Let me do. I hang onto this do. I throw it all away. Do I only keep part of it? And I'm still on that path. But I I've also come to a place of not being so worried about figuring it out tomorrow. Right. Yeah. It sounds like it out that you overcome. Yeah. And so I think. It has also helped inform my work around coaching, which is helping people figure out what they want like who are they what do they wanted to where they're not. Now there is the same. I guess it was I was dissatisfied with my beliefs, and with this thing that was supposed to be amazing was supposed to work in wonderful ways that I didn't feel like was working that way for me. So in the same way people with their lives are like, you know, I wanna be more satisfied. I want this to work. I want to enjoy what I'm doing. I wanna feel like I'm contributing. So I guess in same way, I enjoy really going deep with people and helping to figure those things out. Yeah. Awesome. Because it sounds like, hey, I was dissatisfied in my life. And then I wrestled with these things. And now when I compare where I'm at to to where I was I'm using the word I, but I'm talking about you. So that's weird. But anyway, but, but you know, now, it sounds like you're a lot more satisfied. Yes. I would also say that it's not perfect either. Like, they're diff. Different radiations are degrees. It could be satisfied with imperfection the. Yes. Well, put well put. And on that note. Maybe that makes a good place to end here an imperfect imprecise Indian, but in a way that we should probably wrap up. What the last question I have for you. And you can have a last question for me. If you like is if someone was interested in doing an experience like you did how would they go about finding it. And I'm not asking you to promote the one that you did if you want to you can. But is there like a general place that people would look to have an experience like this the organization that I did my vision fast with is called the school of lost borders, and you can easily find them on Google, and they are a fantastic group of people. You know, it's not a big organization, they probably lesson a dozen people were for them. But the guides that went with us and the emotional wisdom that they brought was phenomenal. I could not recommend them. More highly. You know, if you can spare two weeks of your life to do some deep soul-searching that I think is a great way to do it. One last question as we wrap up, Michael where could people learn more about you follow you, what you're up to your podcast anything you want to share with people to get more, Michael? Yeah. I have been publishing the podcast on anchor which releases it to a number of platforms Spotify and. And if you other places, you can definitely find it there. But if you are interested in a certain topic or want to share your experience, I would love to speak with you either off or on the show, and you can visit my website that man's forest dot org. Where not only can you download all of the episodes. But there's a contact form at the bottom. Kind of the lifeblood of the show is the conversation and the wisdom and knowledge that everybody has so I you know, I would love to talk to you as well. And and. Your about your experiences in your life. Did I think I heard a bird there? There was a bird there. I love it. We just made this work. It wasn't perfect. But it went I think it was good. Yeah. I really enjoy myself. So thanks so much. Yeah. Thank you. Thanks for listening to the John pollster show notes links and all that other good stuff.

"Yeah. It's morning when it starts today. But always starts Cup of coffee Ivan starts with some reading something. Reflective and this morning. I was reading time warrior by Steve Chandler, subtitles hotter, defeat procrastination, people pleasing self-doubt commitment, broken promises and chaos things. Help people with a lot is quote time management time management is a misnomer. I don't know that I've met anyone that really doesn't know how to manage time. In other words, they're able to look at a block of time. And that they have no idea how to go about. Quote, managing it. Usually it's something underneath that. In a lot of cases. It's an ability to say a clear, yes. Or a clear no to what's important to them and Steven his wims, Ecole wise way, totally nails in this chapters chapter forty six page eight when you say, quote, I'm having a real problem with time management. My first objective is not come up with some kind of better tips techniques for you because that's really not what's at play. What I want to find out as what's beneath the time management problem because if you had a clear objective, let's say your objective was to the airport to fly to New York City. You would have no problem managing time. And then he he plays out this scenario about win you need to get to the airport at a certain, time, and interruptions, come up. For most people. There's a pretty clear ability to say, no and say I can't do that right now. And we'll have to another time the wraps it up by saying so with clear mission driving me tie management's never problem. Even if my car breaks down grab a cab real fast, I can get to the airport. Nothing gets in the way of me going to New York. Now, what if I could live each day that way, I truly would not have any time management problems ever because I would be so on purpose, and so focused that always know when to say, no. And when to say, yes, the problem becomes when someone gets up in the morning gets out of bed and sleeply walks into the never ending demands of their day with no sense of purpose or mission. There's no New York that day. These people have nothing that they're up to a no primary goal. Someone someone pokes. Head in the offices Bhagat him in it. The answer is always. Yes. Why would you say no that wouldn't be very pleasing? So I say yes to that. Like, I say yes to everyone open every Email. I take every call pretty soon, I'm falling behind with what I know. I have to do. And then I believe at the end of the day that I have a time management problem when I don't I have a mission problem. Sooner go around telling people, I have more to do than I have time to do it in even though that's not really true. The truth is I have no direction. The thing about here is what is your mission? What's your overarching purpose saying in a work in a business context? And what does your schedule in calendar? Look like is. It contained wall to wall with meetings that you have accepted because you want to quote, stay informed and stay in the loop and not be left out. Or are they meetings that you've consciously said yes to I wanna be at that meeting. I want to impact the direction that we're going and more importantly, I went to contribute in are you doing these meetings because you're supposed to or you have to I believe we all have a choice as seen this and working with managers, the notion that you're supposed to have one on ones with all your people. Now, I think one on ones are crucial do supporting the people that work for you. Don't get me wrong there. But I have seen though is that a manager that is completely overwhelmed. Maybe they have too many direct reports. And I think that's totally possible. The maybe you're a manager with too many direct reports. And because being a good manager means having one on ones with everyone you schedule one on one with every single person for the same amount of time. Maybe fall into the trap of. Making them an hour. And so you have quote, no time or you have a quote time management problem because your time in your schedule is not your own if one of these durations, I suggested I was being really radical right thought I was being radical. And I said, why don't you cancel all your one on ones for the next two weeks? Now, this is a common coaching technique, which is to push things to the extreme to figure out where the stretches so I was thinking while cancelled for two weeks, they were pushed back and say, well, no way, I can't do that. I'll cancel them for a couple days or something. They ended up taking me up on their challenge. And the result was somewhat life changing for them. Suddenly had they had time. Suddenly, they could breathe somebody. They could figure out. What's my mission with my purpose? Where am I going with all of this? And what they found was some people didn't need the full amount of time that they had scheduled for their one on one. So what they did was they customized the time for each person. So I can't remember what they came up with. But basically the idea that, you know, some people only need twenty minutes or some people need thirty and depending on the. Of the person's role. Sometimes they need an hour because there's lots of things to work through. So the process of getting really clear of saying yes, this person needs an hour. Yes. This person needs thirty minutes. And then also saying no to meetings that landed outside of their work hours. Now, their work hours where pretty extreme. So them say no to outside of work hours. From my perspective was a beautiful thing what they found. There was the world didn't stop spinning when they started declining meeting saying I can't come to that meeting. The world doesn't stop spending. When they started taking a lunch break for the first time in years, one of their big discoveries, which was so fun to watch. Was there live was actually becoming better more sane more satisfying? They had more energy because they were saying no to ask yourself. The really have a time management problem or do you have a problem saying yes to something or notice something or are you even clear about your overall objectives mission and where you're headed? If your answer is no, I'm not clear on any of those things or some of them are while I'd love the bounces idea off of you, John and find out more and explore this. I'd love to do with you. So just send me an Email podcast at John pollster dot com time on the calendar. Get on zoom or the phone whatever works for you. And let's have a conversation. Around what's possible because I truly believe that Moore is and I've helped a lot of people with things like this.

"So I got Gama with a whole list of those. Values of principle. But I strongly believe that we all matter. Why contribution we make small large matters Lee, matter and. Also, recently, become more. Aware of this notional shop that we own our future that we own the outcomes in lights. No matter what the circumstances are. So I'm embracing some of these fundamental principles and becoming fully aware off what these meeting. Toughie had one or two challenges to give people as we close. What would those be? Challenges. I'm deal right now on a daily basis. How can I stay happy for today? How I can be aware off what's happening with my motion with minor level and sort of manage that daily journey with much more joy with much more. Grounded Nessin but much more. So that's John's I give everyone be aware of how you are spending the day hot, you're feeling through the day. And. What can you do to have more joyful days? More of base filled with more avails, and countless, you know. And do you have any suggested techniques or ways to do that? So I have been doing meditation. Bring us regularly in the evenings are spent twenty twenty five minutes most days, so bad. As me, I think if spine John is loud. Easy, but you can surrou- do it, you know instantly. But there are breeding techniques and so on, but I keep Joe I recommend to my friends journal. German like writing what happens in your life as a way to capture your thoughts. Your feelings them that way, you are in life and sort of use that anchor. I try to mentor young people, and I'm cutters them to keep control. That says second. Bath. And I'm trying brace for myself like being more closer to nature. Having that solitude one on one time without south. So that's a tough piece outside. I love all of those things. So you don't have you don't have five simple hacks or five simple steps. It's a process again. I get it to be honest with you if one embraces two of the three things can change your life dramatically. We don't need like longlist fell things to do. But we just need to them in internalize, these basic concepts and live that life and the journey.

"Groups where that are the noisiest that don't care about. And I've turned off the notifications. So I don't get any type of notification in Email the important ones. I do get an Email notification. Lincoln. I'm kind of active on, but I find that the news feed or the home field. There is just usually this like just really boring. Everyone just sharing the latest articles from their companies, and it just find it credibly uninteresting not a lot of value there. Although I have seen some people encouraging people that want to be more active in Lincoln to share more personal things in that feed, which I would totally welcome. Maybe I'll start doing that another thing that has also kind of a leak or it was it was a Lee kind of unlike my psychic energy, and it was the amount of clutter whether it be physical clutter on my desk or just the growing since of clutter and disorganization of all the files on my computer. Like, not being able to find something and just really finding that annoying. So I set on a mission to centralize an organize all the files that have been piling up over the all the computers of had over the last ten or fifteen years, and that's really starting to come into focus and be awesome. A great MAC program. I came across that I've been using for while its called daisy disc, it is a really awesome job of telling you where the biggest like is sort. It's super super quick. So like into it indexed. My terabyte drive like in ten seconds said helps you find kind of the biggest offenders in terms of space. Also, just a ton of duplication that I've found whereas a computer died or I got a new one I just had all the files laying around and so really getting that streamlined dedicating one one. Older laptop for pictures. So I'll pictures get imported into photos on that that computer, so far that's working. Although it makes me a little nervous that I have this one file this one photos file database or whatever. That's I think. Oh, thirty gigabytes. Like, what if that thing gets corrupted? Do I lose all my pictures? I hope not everything has been super handy in this effort is dropbox I have the tear by the hundred dollar a year paid plan. And that is fantastic for archiving. Like podcasting projects would I typically do is I create everything in a dropbox folder. And then I have a 'nother folder in dropbox that I'm not saying he knew my computer like like, no Saint or something like that. And then I use the web interface. For dropbox to move folders. From maybe the primary podcast in director like for the jump for. This this podcast. I move it. What's an episode has published? I moved the project files into this. No sing directory that doesn't get sing to any computers. So that then frees up space locally. And then just kind of moves it in a deep storage dropbox, the one downside of this approach is if you create a brand new folder most lease from what I've seen that new folder automatically get sinked on all your computers. And so when I'm doing this for starters, especially have a lot of data. I have to go to each computer. Now have that many of them? So it's not that big of a deal, but I have to go to each computer and manually say, no don't think that folder that contains fifty gigabytes of previous podcast episode project files. Doug, Emma challenge. Here is be on the lookout for the weeks in your own life where you wasting time. What are those patterns that you see across? Individual days or weeks or months, and then what can you do to plug those leaks and really focus your time on the things that matter then glad to have a conversation with you about this could be about time management and prioritization. Feeling overwhelmed how to get organized? Why can't I get organized? Experience it discussing these topics is there's always something several layers deeper underneath that. So whether it be what storm my tally myself about being disorganized or my ability to organize. It's always something a little more complicated than what's presenting.
