"Of abuse and power are the subjects of a brand new movie called she said. This morning, Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday, thanks a look at the movie that traces the harrowing experiences of women who fell into his orbit. This is one of those cases where a movie's been sort of ripped from the headlines so that the audience is so familiar with the facts of the case that you wonder where does the suspense come from? Where does the narrative tension come from? And the director Maria Schrader and the two lead actresses Carey Mulligan plays Meghan two E and Zoe Kazan plays Jody Cantor, the two reporters who told the story. The brilliance of this film is how it makes we think of as a series of facts and a story that sort of unfolded in a really powerful but maybe to some people still abstract way. It just gives it such emotional immediacy. I just think it brings the stakes of this story to such vivid, vivid life. And it's not just through the reporters chasing down the story, but it's in the women who have the courage to come forward. There are former mayor max employees played by Samantha Morton and just a shattering performance. And Jennifer Ellie. And then also the real life Ashley Judd plays herself coming to grips with having to go public or deciding to go public with her personal story. I mean, it's just, I choked up several times throughout the movie. So in other words, it's gripping, not because of suspense or not knowing how it turns out, but just the emotional power and the moral power of these women coming forward. And do you think this is one of those movies that's considered important? I do Hillary because it memorializes a turning point. I mean, as we heard in that introduction, this is that rare article or group of articles that sparked a movement. And we're still in it. It changed the world. So I think part of the job of pop culture and movies is to take note of that and to dramatize it in an exciting and gripping way, but also just a way that does right by history. And I think this movie does both. It's superbly entertaining, and I think will

"It feels like a real person in all of their complexity, not like a type or a stock role or anything like that. And Al Pacino just seems really alive in the moment and really present in that role at all times. So to me, that's an example of the kind of performances that the method helped usher to the fore over the course of the 20th century. I forget who it was, but one of the method directors or teachers said, let someone else take the part with a lot of dialog. You'd take the part where you're just thinking and reacting. Yeah, absolutely. That was Kazan, you know, when he was when alia Kazan briefly was trying to be a film actor. He really learned from the other actors on set that part of what you do is you let everyone else say all the lines that the camera can really read your mind and it can really see your thoughts on your face. So part of the thing that you do is you just think and the camera will see what you're thinking. There's different approaches to the method, but one of them really emphasizes digging into your own emotional history or emotional memories to use those to get into your character. And you were practicing that when you were in college and you had a role. And you had been a professional child actor. And you write in the introduction to your book that through this process of mining your own emotional memories you retreated too far into your personal darkness. Can you describe how that happened? Because I'd really like to understand how psychologically upsetting it can be to take this approach to plumbing your own emotional depths. Yeah, absolutely, you know, it's funny. It was over two decades ago, but I still remember it really vividly. The play was talk radio, which is a by Eric bogosian, and he wrote it for himself to play the lead character, who's this kind of like shock jock, right? And over the course of the 90 minute play, the actor playing that part, you are chain smoking and you're talking to people who are calling into the radio and then at the end of 90 minutes on stage, you have a nervous breakdown live on the air. That's the arc of the play. And this was a college production. It was student directors who of course didn't really know what they were doing and neither did any of the rest of us. And we probably had two or three weeks of rehearsal. And the character I was playing was older than me had a lot more life experience and they're having their nervous breakdown based on whatever is the matter with them. And the only way I knew how to find a connection to them was to go deep into the things that I thought were wrong with me and my own depression and being newly in college and my own loneliness and my own feelings of inadequacy and guilt and all sorts of other things. And so I really spent a lot of time thinking through those things and finding them and finding images or sensory ideas associated with them so I could kind of trigger them. And so I was doing that on stage and at the same time chain smoking real cigarettes for 90 minutes. I would end every performance feeling completely wrung out emotionally and physically ill. Simultaneously. And so what I would have to do at the end of the show is I would go back to my dorm room and I would just stare at a blank wall until I kind of like my stomach settled down and I felt my humanity return..

He's similar to like a younger Jones in that respect where he's young and been around it and he seemed so much older in a car and so much more mature in so that is translated into the truck races he ran last year and and I have some pretty high expectations of him as he does of themselves but he's definitely one of our up and comers that is on the young side mean seventeen and still developing and then obviously there's the Raphael Lazard the neckaces that we've been with for quite a while and I think most people know of Kazan truck races now. That were pretty happy about. And then there's there's lots of kids that we actively engage with and develop in all different areas were lucky not geographically focused either because we have teams all over the place and that's helped us engage with maybe some kids we probably wouldn't necessarily always get access to so there's some good kids in California. There's kids racing for Keith in Indiana. There's just there's just a lot of strong drivers out there the thing that's so interesting though. Is that their kids and kids. You never know what's going to happen so it's still development. I mean it's it's People. WanNa say whatever they want to say about how what what it takes to make it? But they're a work ethic focused drive a passionate WanNa do it is all super important to to make it and at some point maintaining that from fourteen fifteen. Sixteen seventeen is very very difficult to do. Know we can talk about it all the time about being focused in wanting it and all that but the proof is in Monday through Friday. And how hard? They're working what they're doing and to to be on top of their game and and for whatever reason at times that lapses and you know you could take a great kid who's Fourteen Jesse. Love is a kid we've been with since he was twelve. I think thirteen stupid. How young that was East we're really excited about him and you know then. There's kids like Geo celts. Who came out of nowhere in dirt and had outlawed program in in our racing with us and pavement. That's a little bit kind of a different road that he traveled and then we have Holly Holland and Greasy Trotter. Who really come aboard and done a really good job in kind of in all of our testing have looked quite good still have a lot of development to do. You know there's there's kids we lost Based on Ford coming in that is painful to so. There's I think there's a lot of good crop of young kids coming out racing and as long as they all continue to work hard developing keep good people around him then hopefully we'll see him down the road. We really good group. We have a good team of kids. it's exciting to them kind of interact with each other watch the quote unquote older kids. Who may not actually be older but have been in higher level than others and back and forth and so he has Jackson. We're really excited about about our kids. You mentioned most of the ones I attend to hit their Jesse loved Yosemite. I think Logan. Cv also part of the lineup. I believe I mean so. Logan was Logan is not as involved now. We still are working through some things to see if there's ways to work together it's just difficult to the process is difficult and how everybody fits in where they go. I mean Logan is ridiculously talented. I mean it's it's just finding the path and making it work is always hard. You know I mean you look at the McNally Lineup or venturing lineup with I mean. You have Corey Haim and drew dollar and Michael Self Austin Hills Rachel H at hr e and in. He's ridiculously good. And He's twenty four with two kids for God's sake so I mean it's awesome right. I mean in in in in Austin Hugely Involved Maximum Laughlin with with a jury in there. There is an amazing group of kids in. What's interesting is we're kind of lucky. We have some really driven dedicated guy who want participate and show up every day. And I mean that's what's crazy about the performance central a lot of those that we talked about minus the group their local to North Carolina. Right you get into dirt kids in our dirt. Kids are Cap. GotTa be the younger kids we've ever had consistently with Daisin Ken McIntosh and Buddy I mean it. Just these they're all babies right in and so they're and they're out. There racing are trying to raise eighty times a year. I mean it's it's just an amazing amazing situation but I think we've been very lucky. I mean part of it is. I think what we've done is a little bit different and and our teams of Baden in. That's been a big part of it. That's it goes back to what I said before. The integration of the teams is pretty special and something. I think I'm probably most proud about. Is that all those teams engage in actively discuss things with each other to try to help develop the drivers.

Ancient Trees: Living on the Edge
"I hadn't research so when I started to do a research program I thought I need to find a place in southern Ontario which is far away for Hudson Bay. I had to find that place that had harsh growing conditions so that I could carry on with Mike curiosity about how plants living environments is exclude most other plants and took up and eventually I found that the cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment run basically from northern New York state. All the way through a terrier over to Michigan had not only Lichens mosses and other plans but had these scruffy trees growing on edge of the cliffs. And that's why did you need to the ancient forests of scar. Of course. No one knew that they were ancient time. In fact in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. When I started the transition for like two trees I phoned. It was indication with the Ministry of Natural Resources asking if they would be interested in sponsoring research all on the ecology of the clips of escarpment and they wrote back and said well they were happy and by wanted to waste my time studying slips because he knew they were there. I have reminded them of that almost decade by decade. Since because Would they were disparaging where those little tiny trees growing the cliffs saying to themselves? Well Hey don't count compared with normal burnt tall forests. A scruffy vegetation on the cliffs didn't count so they could equal sign. Nothing is there and ironically but twenty years later when I was trying to confirm some of the early discoveries planned to do a sabbatical trip to France and I wrote to professor while palliate and asked him if I could come in at the cliffs in France and he said it was almost it was almost He said it was happy to host new but of course all their clips are there and in fact After we did the very cursory survey of the cliffs that he had we found the oldest living plants in France amid came Figaro He became famous because he then started a big research program. Events of living trees that stirred to grow for the Romans had left France shoe and it it freaked him out and everybody else said that he was a retrospectively so happy to have been rob his credit he was happy to say that to their discredit. Ministry of Natural Resources in Ontario. Even though they rode the ancient tree hobby-horse for years they never went. Service it oh by the way. We're sorry there was something there after all. Jeez wouldn't interesting trajectory on something that like you just interested. People wrote off and I grew up in that region looking at the Niagara Escarpment. And you see these trees they are small and I'm lucky that I grew up in a time where this was starting to be realized. And when you finally see the ages on some of these things that me. My jaw hit the floor. It's it's incredible to think of something that old in such a tiny package. Because you know you see three is or something like that in someone's yard and they're huge there but they're you know a couple of decades most but what got you interested in this idea of harshness. I know you said it started with Lichens. But to think about plants in harsh landscapes I mean you see them in asphalt you see them in gravel roads. Plants can handle it. But what made you want to study that you know? I think we probably need to have a shrink as part of the because what I've learned forty years during this is your personality. This is probably infected you right now to your personality guide to research ways that you don't even realizing now maybe this may be historical revisionism. But I think when I was a kid growing up I was the tall skinny guy that was always beaten up from school. Felt like I was the underdog in I always loved the idea of supporting anything in fastened with anything that would win by getting out of the way of the means of the bullets and those were often things cryptic where the things differently so I always tried to do things that other people were doing because then I wouldn't have to bump into that bullies that I didn't play sports. 'cause I was always the last one picked. I mean so does psychological component to working on high stress organisms whether they're plants or animals. Interestingly I fought against those buildings for years after ten years of working I actually got a H- site visit from the natural sciences and Engineering Research Council. They said by the way. We don't like the fact that you're working on rocks come and if you want to. This was a big incentive to move into the trees because they said if you WanNa have continued funding from us you have to work on something more real something more important like trees or higher plants but not Rocks Cup while many Lichen colonies several thousand years old and they said no one cares boy so with that encouragement lappy. We had all these people working in Allergy and we said okay guys. They're the writings on the wall. They don't want us to work on Lichens. What else grows beside them? That might gain some respect and one of the Grad students at whether trees growing on the same rocks. I mean maybe maybe we could just switch from the trees a A year later that we discovered on some of those cliff as trees that the rings were incredibly tight. We we had no plans to studying trees. We were simply looking at the way. Human Disturbance Influence the structure of these base forests. So to what could that. We decided a good thing to calculate was productivity enough to calculate the productivity tree. You have to divide its mass by age. Okay using architectural models. We calculated massive all the trees in climbed area in that massive all the trees in inclined area and then took core samples to find out how old they were Kazan. That would give us an estimate of productivity lifetime. Cry Tippety when we did that. You've got these core samples from the cliff face trees and we couldn't see any rings at all So then sanded them up more carefully. And that's when we realized reason why we couldn't see the richness is that they were too small and at that stage we with either. These trees are putting a tree ring every time it rains it because we were like an experts. Had We know the yet you know much about the biology trees at the time so what? We have a bunch of samples and said the sent them. Ed Cook It. Lamont Doherty in your you know in Palisades. Yeah Yeah just. North of the city in Ed. Cook wrote back and said Yes. Those are ancient trees where to find and I said well I can see Toronto from where they grow the sitting right on the edge of the escarpment facing the biggest city in Ontario. And it looks like some of them have over seven hundred rings in them. Whoa and he said well you got a good one expert instill as dendrochronology in the world. And so he he and I started to collaborate with some other lab partners and we did quite a bit work after that on the dendrochronology the series of the Niger. Escarpment but it was all accident really amazing. We weren't initially curious about ancient trees at all just wanted to see if disturbance influence productivity turned up the did disturbs make it. The trees grow faster because it was competition but that became a side issue once we found For us in a place where no one expected to find one.
Now Playing - The Movie Review Podcast
Panic in the Streets
"We're discussing panic in the streets starring. Richard Would Mark Paul. Douglas Barbara Bel Getty's Jack Talents. Zero mastel directed by Eliah Kazan. This is the now playing. Co-host who's fond of Shishkabob Arnie Stewart? And this the CO host. Who Likes High Foreheads Jacob? Well we hope everybody at home is healthy and safe and likely quarantined. No matter where you're listening to us from the world. Yeah at the moment of recording. We are all separated apart. Watching the news is one of the shows that we've taped since this pandemic has hit America. We are hearing reports. There are over sixty thousand cases in America by the time this airs. Who knows but we are thinking about this pandemic and checking in with you. You guys told us you were interested in watching movies about viruses. I don't know about that you know I can understand why some people might be like. I want to turn that off. I don't WanNa think about that. It's scary to contemplate when you turn on the news these days. Yeah but people are I think indulging in it in some ways entertainment as of this recording contagion is the number four movie on Itunes and it has been for weeks and outbreak is in the top twenty five and let's face it. We had to kind of fill out our schedule. The new mutants is punted for the sixth time or something but James Bond got moved black widow. The new saw film fast and furious nine and just a couple days ago when we're recording. This wonder woman. Eighty four half of our schedule for the spring has no release date anymore. Yeah I thought it was going to be a super busy month person July and lots of new releases and now we don't know yes and we didn't really necessarily know how to approach virus movies. Either there are a lot of them and we've covered some of them and you can go find those in the archives. Twenty eight days later and I am legend. All the stand. I did a list. I wanted to see how many we've really done if people wanted to do. A full now. Playing virus retrospective. There's the I am legend trilogy. Starting with the last man on earth in nineteen sixty four. Yeah then Omega Man in seventy one. There's the stand from ninety. Four twelve monkeys. That counts right. Nine Hundred Ninety five definitely twenty eight days later two thousand and two resident evil also two thousand two twenty eight weeks later as well. Yep Yep rise of the planet of the apes and then its two sequels but rise. Came Out in twenty eleven. Dare I add it in the name of the King Two worlds. It might make you sick watching it. And there was someone plotting to release a virus. Yes and they did. That's the thing it's not if they were blinded they released it in the Kingdom of EB World War Z. And Day of the dead bloodline. Yeah I think what's different here because we do want to be sensitive. We're not doing the sensational Zombie outbreak. Type films I mean. We talked about all kinds of viral outbreaks. And we really wanted something that that would speak to. What's going on right now. Though yeah I agree I mean I want a very clear eyed view if you WANNA laugh and enjoy camping ones no judgment but it might seem inappropriate to make light of something that seemed so severe the way I thought about it is. It's more interesting even though we're told. Time and again. These are unprecedented times. Mankind has always dealt with viruses. It has always been a part of our story and it was interesting to think that we could go back through the decades and look at the ways that it was presented on film and how the general public thought about contagion and viral outbreaks. And it makes sense that we would start with panic in the streets in one thousand nine hundred fifty film when we were discussing the Tom Cruise film losing it Stewart. You pointed out that in the eighties. A lot of movies were being set in the fifties because baby boomers who were in their formative years in the fifties grew up and now they were writing films in the eighties so setting them thirty years earlier while thirty years or specifically thirty two years before nineteen fifty. The Spanish flu was out there so a lot of people. My Ninety nine year old grandmother is regaling me endlessly with this coronas. Nothing you should have been there for the Spanish flu. Nine hundred eighteen. Not many of us can say that we were there for that but it does sound awful. It killed a whole lot of people. And Yeah that comes up a lot. But even in the nineteen fifties which is the start. I think of the movie. Sub-genre virus movies kickoff with panic in the streets. Nine hundred fifty s were a scary time. That looked a lot like. Are you know right. Now we're thinking very much about protecting our seniors because they're what's at risk for covert nineteen but back in the nineteen fifties. Hide your kids to let them go to the pool. Don't let him play with other kids because if you do they're gonNA get infantile paralysis. Polio I mean the scare was real people close pools. They didn't let their kids out. He was considered a summer plague. School's out and then all of a sudden just populations of people all throughout the United States would suddenly be hit hard and kids would suddenly lose motor function and only able to breathe when they were put into an iron lung interesting statistic by the way it sounds a lot like corona only two percent of the population actually develop the disease and most of those cases were mild. Most of the people were not left with long term disabilities but it did impact a whole generation. I know my mom believes. She was diagnosed with polio. My Dad's second wife had it. You know the thirty second president. Fdr The reason why he was in a wheelchair he got it when he was thirty. Nine years old. You didn't even have to be a kit. People were living like we were back in. One thousand nine hundred eighty. When this movie came out there was a real field. If you send your kid to the movie theater. He touched another kid. This could happen wasn't until one thousand nine hundred eighty five. When Jonas Salk released his cure which was very controversial he was doing things that scientists disapproved of in order to get that vaccine and it worked one monkey equaled six thousand doses of immunization. And before you know it all the kids got to lead the iron lung and come home and famously. He didn't even keep the patent. It's something that warms my heart. When I think about it he thought it was unethical for anyone to profit from this cure and so he gave it away for free so there was panic in the streets in nineteen fifty and I think the other thing that might have inspired. The onset of movies talking about viruses was the smallpox outbreak of nineteen forty. Seven guy got on a bus in Mexico. City drove all the way to New York City. Didn't feel so well with feverish. The whole time went to Bellevue hospital a week later he died. That was when the doctors realized. Oh my God is smallpox. They had had a vaccine for smallpox for over century but because smallpox was so rare like nobody was immune from it so suddenly everyone. That man had come in contact when the bus was infected and it was being you know across the country so everyone literally was being impacted. Kind of like we are now. Everyone potentially could have smallpox what the government did was they started a big PR blitz. They put out commercials on the radio. Tv magazines go to our free health clinics. They opened them up all over the country. Get your vaccines and so everyone could sing the songs everyone knew about shots and the necessity of getting immune to smallpox. Hollywood jumps on trends. If something is big in the news. They're going to come up with a movie about it and I think that's the movie we're here to talk about today. I'd never heard of panic in the streets until we decided we were going to cherry pick. What is what the best the most iconic virus movie from each decade the fifties through the teens. And you said this is the top one on the list I I. I never heard of this. Yeah nor have I. This is totally new to me. I knew by reputation but I've never seen it either. I do think most people know Elia Kazan. He was a director more famous. Maybe for Broadway the stage but he helped pioneer the method acting. So if you know Brando if you know James Dean if you know all of those leading light actors for the nineteen fifties Elliott. Kazan probably worked with them and got them to be the actors that they were. Yeah I did look up this director and and unfortunately Brando. Unless he's in Superman or the godfather I I got a blind spot for his films as well as James Dean so I recognize. Yeah Kazan oh he's he's actually done some big movies but this one isn't one of his that I've heard of
Alyssa Milano: Sorry Not Sorry
Fighting Youth and Teen Suicide with Kendra Fisher
"We are facing an increasing crisis of teen and youth suicide in America and it is especially affecting young girls. Today's episode is a difficult one Kendra Fisher former elite ice hockey player and mental health. Activist and advocate helps me dig into the roots of the problem and what we can do to turn it around years ago. When faced with the opportunity to realize her dream of goaltending for team Canada Kendra was diagnosed with severe anxiety disorder coupled with severe panic attacks depression and agoraphobia forcing her to leave the national program in order to seek help to learn how to live with what had become a crippling disease. She now dedicates her life to helping. Young people get help for their mental illnesses. We turn now to a nationwide tragedy suicide new report from the Centers for disease. Control SAYS IT IS GROWING. Rapidly has been on the rise for more than a decade but nation suicide rate is at its highest point since one thousand nine hundred twelve year old accomplice allegedly harassed. Szechuan included that. You should drink bleach and die. No one likes you and you should go kill yourself. Sedgwick jumped off a near her home. After writing friends nine year old McKenzie atoms last week from other says the fourth grader was the target of Constant Racial Thompson? Name calling I was diagnosed with mental illness and I had no idea where to go so it was actually out at a team. Canada camping in Calgary and leading up to it in the weeks before I'd been to the doctors I've been to the hospital emergency room. I had no idea what was wrong with me. I felt like I was having a heart attack. I felt like it was gonNA Faint. Couldn't breathe swallow and and everybody told me it was fine. I love hockey and I love everything. It's given me both my hockey career. Also it would have had a shelf life and now. I'm in this position where I've learned so much about myself and I've met so many incredible people because of the journey I've been on and hopefully I can be a part of something that might stop somebody else. I'm Kendra Fisher and I'm fighting for the lives of those living with mental illness. Sorry not sorry so I mean. We've got a tough topic today but really before we dive in a love for you to give my listeners. A bit of information about your background. And how did mental health especially in girls become one of your causes? My background is hockey. I mean everything about my background is hockey. I grew up like so many Canadians. Just really wanting to have that red and White Jersey. That had my name on the back and I wanted to play for team Canada. I wanted to go to the Olympics and everything in my life through. My teens really suggests that I was going to be successful in that. I was carded member of team. Canada's National Hockey Program and sometime after high school I just got to a place where symptomatically and not knowing what. It was without a diagnosis. I was off. I just I felt sick all the time I felt like I was making trips to the emergency room constantly. Feeling like I was having a heart attack feeling like I couldn't breathe and it got to a place where unfortunately the perfect storm kind of hit. When I was out at my tryouts for team Canada in ninety nine and I was out at the camp and I just couldn't hide it anymore. It couldn't hide the battle that I was having every single day I grew up in in the greatest. You know possible situation. I had a great family. I had great friends. I was in a small town and I had a dream and my dream was. I wanted to play for team Canada. I wanted to play in the Olympics. That was that was what I knew. That was everything I worked for and I was well on my weight that I went to the coaches and I tried to explain to them what was going on and quite honestly their response to me was what it helps to know. What already made the team? They knew they wanted to select me that year. And I was finally get that chance to live my dream and it's obviously been one of the hugest moments of my life but not for anything I WANNA remember. Kazan's there was no at that point. What I eventually learned was a severe panic. Disorder and AGORAPHOBIA. Ocd clinical depression had literally taken over my life. And I spent the next five years unable to leave my apartment. Valey participating in my diagnosis just kind of scraping by and doing the bare minimum to survive and after five years I realized that just didn't see the point anymore and at that point I knew I had to make a decision and somehow I found it in me to start fighting and I learned everything I could about mental illness and the system and how it works and what supports are available when I really kind of became at the risk of sounding unhealthy obsessed with my own recovery and I got to a place where. I live very comfortably with my diagnosis. It doesn't mean it's gone. I live with it every day but now I live with it as a professional speaker and travel the world helping others learn how to cope and manage. I also work as a firefighter. I managed to go back and play for team. Canada's inline hockey team and it's really just kind of become a journey that I'm so passionate about because I understand how hopeless it feels but more importantly I understand how hard it is to find hope and defined real help and support and understanding about mental illness. And I just want to be a part of that. Narrative does mental illness. Run in your family. Yes yes and no I mean. I've always done this whole. Why did it happen to me and I think we always look for the answers because if we could find the answers we can fix the problem? Certainly on my on my Dad's side of the family. There's some depression but it wasn't so prevalent that I ever knew about. It wasn't something that I was ever made aware of. It didn't show itself to me until I actually understood what I was dealing with. And you said that you're now living comfortably with your mental illness. What does that mean? I'm fully functioning. It doesn't affect my day to day life in a way. It did in the way. It did kind of earlier on in my diagnosis. I got to a place where I just have an incredible system of support set up around me and I have all of my tools and strategies in place and I'm very quick to identify when I'm not doing well and I've also given others the permission to hold me accountable when they see I'm not doing well and in doing so. It allows me to really react quickly and now. I mean I would challenge that on my worst days of anxiety. I'm at worst as a panic on my worst days of depression doesn't affect me any longer than it would affect somebody getting a bad cold or the you know the stomach flu. It's it's a couple of days of really having to focus on what's brought me back to that place and making sure that I am doing all of the things that I know. Keep me healthy and usually I can rectify it. Just by changing those behaviors. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. But I think it's so hard that when we're in the middle of it to do the things that we know will make us feel better right like I know that going out and being in my garden digging in the dirt or taking a hike or taking a yoga class. I know that these are the things that will make me feel better and yet it's so hard to break out of it. Do you have any advice for me? Yeah absolutely with love and affection. Not as an not an onerous way. But I think that we forget to practice the things that keep us healthy when we're doing well We get to this place where we let life kind of takeover and that you know that pace of just going and when we're good we don't feel the need to necessarily revert back to that self care in those things that we know keep us healthy feel like so many people only practice crisis response and I think that it's time that people learn education and prevention are really the way to manage things crisis response is really you know. You're too far already.

A Simple Approach To Long-Term Goals by Anthony Ongaro of Break The Twitch on Building Successful Habits
"Of break the twitch dot com after a third successful run of men's game unless thinking about what's next one of the reasons the minimalist game seems to work so well is that it starts out with a ridiculously easy challenge and works up from there. Establishing an easy win right away by getting rid of just one thing and building on that success. I've been considering different ways to apply the same thinking over new subjects. Amy and I are at a point where we're not feeling the need to declutter much more. But my love to apply the same action based model in other ways thinking more broadly. I'm working on an easy to reproduce format that can be applied to many different aspects of life like to be able to apply the system to anything whether it be decluttering exercise eating better creativity work. In more of years ago I learned about Kazan. Practice of continuous improvement. Small constant improvements to a process or towards a goal applying. This idea of discussing daily push ups with a friend. When this idea came up one push up every single day. That's it a single push up every day for a full week. Do One push up per day on day. Eight you've been doing one push up her day for seven days trait. What do you think your odds of being able to do to push ups are? I'd say pretty darn good starting to do to push ups per day in week three. You've been doing two per day for the last weeks. Of course you'll be able to do three in a row. This kinda slow methodical. Bill may seem counterintuitive. Prov realized that this is actually the best way to do just about anything. Can you do fifty to push ups in a row right now? If not I bet you could had started this program. One year ago it may feel like any down on the Florida. One push-up is ridiculous. But that's why it's so important to start this way. If you wanted to build a habit of doing daily push ups and start off by doing as many as you can possibly do. You're going to be too sore to do them the next day. This kills the habit. Before it starts men's game slowly builds up the habit in confidence of decision-making deciding over which things to let go of over thirty days almost five hundred items disappear. Br Stars with just one item on the first day. When I'm starting to realize. Is that what you care? Much about qualitative progress than simply making sure the short-term action aligns with that end goal celebrate the consistency of good habit versus progress toward a particular goal. I E success is going to the gym regularly. As opposed to losing weight weight loss might be the actual goal but focusing on that loses touch with sustainable short-term actions. They get us there and keep us there. If you'll strange since I started lifting weights again two months ago I decided to not make any fitness goals. My biggest problem has always been getting to the gym. Once I'm there I work out hard and do what I need to do to get a good workout is the actual act of stepping away from my desk or a couch putting on my workout clothes getting in the car and walking out the door that I've struggled with in the last few months I've been going to the gym three times per week while doing cardio and lifting of only weighed myself a few times out of curiosity. I haven't changed my eating habits at all. I've decided to focus on one thing and one thing alone getting to the gym at least three times per week. So here's what I'm proposing as my new approach to habit change one small ridiculously easy to accomplish thing every
Noble Warrior with CK Lin
From Adversity to Opportunity Pt2
"Hello friends welcome back to par two of the from adversity to opportunity series. Yesterday we talked about the overall framework of what my intention of the series as a gentle reminder. My ultimate intention here is to help you be happier healthier stronger. In spite of all this chaos. That's happening as we know. This virus is impacting. Our economy. Impacting your social life. And from what I can tell. It's starting to really impact our mind as well if we look at a brain house evolve over time. It's evolved to help us survive and right now. The survival brain is in overdrive and the collective stress is now even amplified even more by media by our peer groups. What you can do instantly right now to impact your mind is to pay attention to what you consume. We are what we consume. Think about it. If we consume donuts all day it's inevitable that will probably have type two diabetes if we consume negative media. That's full of fear panic and overwhelm by the end of the day. You come out more fearful more overwhelmed more contracted so case in point. Today I had a few conversations with a few entrepreneurs in one of them is one of those guys who likes to think about the worst in prepare for the best and he's preparing for the apocalypse basically and he was telling me every little thing that he's doing to prepare himself every I won't get into the details. Kazan WanNa impact you that way but the more I listened to him the more I realize a couple of things happening with my body and notice I was buried drawn to what he's talking about. I also notice that there is a little bit more a little bit more a little bit more fear and panic within me because by comparison he is a lot more prepare for the apocalypse. Were as in my case. I'm not so I had to catch myself. Because ultimately I realized that our brain is designed to watch out for potential danger but if I pay attention to the potential danger than that's all I think about. Here's the caveat. I'm not saying don't prepare. I'm not saying just to hope this thing will go away by itself. That's not what I'm saying. What I'm saying here is yes. Prepare at the same time. Be Cognizant of how this preparation or this. Doom and gloom talks is actually impact your peace of mind your internal state as I was saying to all of you that when we are in panic mode we don't make the best decisions as leaders as entrepreneurs.

The Power of the Weekly 5% Focus Habit
"So we're going to be talking about the power of the weekly five percent focus habit so this episode we're talking becoming more effective in your business and your life and not by doing big sweeping changes in you know a massive overhaul of everything that you're doing but from small continuous improvement this really kind of falls. On the heels of a Japanese productivity philosophy called Kazan which stands for or is implemented as continuous improvement. So making these little small changes in your life or in Your Business and your productivity routines that accumulate and build up over time and we'll we'll talk about what this means and what this looks like in this episode so in this episode specifically roundtable why focus on small individual habits and continuous improvement. What is a weekly five percent focus habit of a four steps to implement the weekly Focus Habit into your life and they'll give some examples of habits? I've worked for me that I built up over time from building in these small continues improvements. We'll even talk about where this may go wrong. And and in terms of giving example right up front you know. There's some habits that I had during Grad School. That don't work now. There's some habits I had when when I didn't have a child that he don't work now. I used to have a really nice morning routine which we'll talk a bit about in this episode on. That doesn't work anymore when you don't know whether your child is getting up at three. Am Four am or five am because a lot harder to plan in a nice real productive morning. They'RE GONNA change over time. But with the strategy you'll be able to implement things continue into your life and seeing continuous improvement. One of these steps that will talk to create your five percent. Habit is to create what I call a habit backlog. So it's really just a list of things you could potentially put into your life. This is not the amazing version of you. All maybe parts of it. Are there things you can put in? You know? Carry a water bottle or all these small habits and we'll talk about examples of them by did put together a cheat sheet with Ford examples of of things that I've tried implemented in my life and I've worked for me We put those into a Chichi. You can get from the show notes that GROBBELAAR DOT com slash forty-six as always we have a copy of the transcript so they pdf documents. You can get there if you want to get the You read through the the backlog in this episode Lotta people download those put them on the computer and say it in the for a time when they actually have a chance to be able to go back and read through that material. So encourage you to do that. If that's the way liking soon this content so we'll start by kind of painting a picture talking a little bit of a story. So just pitcher in describing it's not wholly describing you but maybe it's some aspects that you you do want to change in your life you'll see in this kind of pitcher but just imagining you wake up. You're really groggy. Because you're up too late tonight before you slam back a coffee. Skip breakfast you head off to work. Then you work all day and really stressed out and you know you're you're sitting hunched over and your backs all sore me home. You're totally exhausted by you. Know you force yourself to to do some work on your blog. Whatever that is so you kind of scrape by for a few hours. You check social media every eight point three two minutes just because it's been ingrained habit and you don't really feel like you got much done at the end of the day and then you gotta go to bed in the wake up the next day in you you gotta do the same thing so so mentioned hopefully. This doesn't really describe you but just a picture of something that could happen if you have all these kind of bad habits are built into your your productivity schedule your routines or that. I WANNA pay a different pitcher. You know imagine you get to bed early. Wake up feeling refreshed. Maybe do a small workout and grab breakfast. Spend thirty minutes on the bus. Just creating lines for post. You might write you. Stop at a coffee shop before hitting up work. Spend thirty minutes writing blog posts on the ideas. You've already generated you go to work. You have a great day there. Maybe you use a stand up desk or no do some stretching or some breathing or something during the day and you come home and your body's not sore and in the evening instead of writing content because you've already structured into your day. He spent some time with family and friends. Enjoy yourself go to bed early and you get up and do it all over again the next day. So some questions from this you know. How much more effective do you think? The second pitcher is than the first pitcher. There are the second person is going to be in the first person how much faster they grow their blog. How much moral day enjoy their life and this again is not a slam anybody's closer to the first pitcher. I've been there certainly at different times in my life but the point is actually. I have two points on this one is. It's very hard to go from the first pitcher to the second pitcher in one hop. And if you do try your your chances of failure pretty high. It's real building in small steps along the way and that's what we're anytime of this podcast. So maybe it's if you're taking the bus instead of people watching your surfing social media maybe us as productivity time to write a couple of outlines for post you WanNa right. That's like the only thing that you do. And then you know the next week you get to bed fifteen minutes earlier and then maybe the the next week you put your running shoes by your bed and the next week after that you take some time to stretch for ten minutes a day in the afternoon and you kind of build these things up over time so that you are that more. Effective person for making the smog continuous improvements. So why should you focus on small habits? Then we'll one. It's much easier to do for an extended period if you ever try to make New Year's resolution where you're going to go to the gym and you know change your entire life and dropped fifteen pounds and and all sorts of. It's really hard to do after you know after a week or two. You're likely to give up on the flip side of you folks on the smallest possible incremental habit. Change after doing this after week or two it becomes pretty ingrained. Maybe it's drinking a glass of water first thing when you wake up if you do that for two weeks chances are the next time you wake up and you forget to put your water ball by your bed. You're going to be like oh shoot. I really wish had a glass of water drink. It's a lot easier ingrain. These really small habits more quickly into your processes and your routines and generally you don't really get better by implementing massive changes. There are some cases. And sometimes it's necessary to implement a really massive change. I'm taking some examples. But maybe they're really worth on this podcast but sometimes that's the way forward but for most people and even maybe not for most people but a better way to this by incremental small changes over time. It's more effective. Do this in in small increments. So what is the five percent focus habit? The weekly Iverson focused habit. Why why this name and really comes from thinking about? What is the smallest incremental change? You can make to improve yourself this week. If you were to get five percent better just overall in your life every week for an entire year you be five percent better the first week. Then you'd be five percent better than you were at the end of the first week at the end of the second week. Then you'd be five or better again and it compounds itself so you'll fly grow. How much better going to be at the end of the year? One Point Oh five to the power of fifty two that comes up to twelve point six so if every week you become five or seven better version of yourself at your you'll be twelve times better. So whatever that is twelve hundred percent better version of yourself and it's incremental. It's the pens on how berry a ten percent better every week. You're one hundred and forty two times better. Version result at the end of the year those really about nailing in delving into these really small habits changes that can can have a big impact overtime incrementally and if you failed that habit before it's probably even broke it down far enough and I'll give this example. Maybe a little later in episode two. But if you wanted to run four times a week or something and you can keep not being. We'll do that. Maybe you should look at a habit. That's okay I'm going to put on my shoes every morning. My running shoes all allow myself not to run. If I don't feel like it but the habit is put on the shoes so that every morning you know for a whole week you put on the shoes. And you're like I'M NOT GONNA run of Yuki put on the shoes. I guarantee eventually you're going to go for a run. So how do you actually go about implementing this process that? And if you listen to podcasts you know I'm pretty big on procedures and you know actually giving tactics and tips on how to put this stuff into your life. So I came to the fore step process to implementing the weekly fiber sent focus habit. Step number one is to make a habit backlog so actually do this in Google in a google sheet. Brainstorm all the things that you can think of to improve your life just a little bit and you can put big things in here but realized that you're gonNA probably WANNA break those down into their smaller increments down the road but just you know everything just brain dump anything. Nothing's wrong answer. Put everything you can think of in there and add to the sheet as you're reading as you're learning as you're coming through life maybe you forgot to put out the garbage and the garbage truck came by that day. Okay well maybe I can set up a weekly reminder my email to email me on Thursday morning so I won't miss the garbage truck again when I send out the garbage. I've actually done this I- boomeranged g mail. One of my automatic emails comes out every Thursday and says put the garbage out or put the recycling whichever week it is. Because I've missed the garbage truck so you can add your thinks this list as you're living with his big backlog different habits.
Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen
New York Icons: Kaufman Astoria Studios
"New York for its entire. History has brought people together of wildly different backgrounds and that might be different races or cultures or a geographic areas Irish people and Jews and African Americans and you know Italians but also different classes. You had the tenement girl and the rich playboy and everybody in between well. That's just a natural for storytelling. But when these stories were told by Hollywood what was distinctly New York about them could get flattened out for the mainstream. If you look today at a Marx brothers movies the first couple of Marx brothers films. They're throwing all these terms around. Mommy's Nora Nori. There is Jewish for free loader animal crackers in the coconuts where designs you know for a New York audience but when the Marx Brothers then do moved to Hollywood and they begin making films for MGM. There's no Yiddish in those movies anymore. Right they become the sort of universal. You Know Hollywood movie Marx Brothers that that's from forty second street classical nine hundred thirty three musical about the Broadway chorus girl who becomes a star that connick number has the busby Berkeley dance formations but it also has the skyline the elevated train street vendors and attempted rape and murder. It's a film about New York. Made in Hollywood that helped form what sanders calls the mythic city. That dream version of New York. That's a distillation of the real place. Forty Second Street and all those back stage musicals that were made all the homes that were about the putting on of a Broadway show. They were shot in Broadway theaters. They were shot in Hollywood sound stage theaters. You know there was just endless numbers of these amazing films which did not have a single frame except possibly the establishing shot the opening shot would be shot in New York as the credits ran by with music behind him in. May Nineteen thirty. Three paramount turned the Astoria studios over to its main creditor western electric that companies filmmaking arm Eastern Services Studios INC operated it as a rental studio for independent productions. Its output varied widely. The Scoundrel for example was set in Manhattan's literary world. Noel Coward plays a ruthless hated publisher. Julian place the woman he charms. Mary's then abandoned putting something happened. Man I do live. I hope you're playing folk killed when you're dying using it on. The homepage of the year does not think of human when he dies. He's condemned to damnation unless he finds one person on Earth to mourn. Him novelists writes Ben. Hecht and Charles MacArthur rotated but at Astoria. They also got to produce and direct. They won an academy award for best original. We don't be Marquette. Hulu your new. There was a series of Spanish language. Musical starring Tangos Star Carlos Gardell Tambien. A nineteen thirty. Three's Emperor Jones was based on the controversial Eugene O'Neill play main character was a black pullman porter who escapes prison to become dictator of a small island. The film could only have been made with independent funding. Then the studios were called to service for World War Two. The Department acquired the property in Nineteen Forty Two and the pictorial center of the army. Signal Corps moved into make trading and propaganda films. They expanded the facility and built barracks for the soldiers. The army used motion pictures in the war effort and turned to experienced filmmakers for help frank. Capra worked on a series of orientation films called why we fight one episode related to our won the Oscar for best documentary. Just what was it? Made US change our way of living overnight but turned our resources are machines our whole nation into one vast awesome producing more and more weapons of war instead of the old materials by the end of the war the ABC employed over two thousand people making movies over half of them civilians. All this work even brought new film techniques like multiple angles shooting and change film in even more momentous ways for five years American audience. It has been seeing newsreels. And it's someone you know. A movie maker said well you couldn't you couldn't bring in the enemy for for production meeting you know before. The battle and people went out with sixteen millimeter cameras. And these lightweight cameras that could go everywhere. They saw actual action after the war audiences and creators had developed a taste for this more realistic filmmaking. There was an appetite. For a new kind of filmmaking. That would be used more available light less contrived cinematography be shot with faster. Granier film be more shot on location and feel more like a took place in real place and not this kind of fabricated construct and be more adult this desire for realism meant the glossy representations of New York. That Hollywood made before the war wouldn't do director is like Ilya. Kazan felt their stories needed New York locations and New York talent. You don't understand I coulda had class. Gerber contamination could have been somebody by the MID FIFTIES NEW YORK. Filmmakers were more than just contenders. The Oscar wins for on the waterfront in nineteen fifty five and Mardi fifty six affirm. That excellence could come from outside. Hollywood New York is setting is capable of whatever mood or dramatic statement? You WanNa make architecturally in its light for talk about winter light as Mr Bergman did. New York's winter light image. That Sidney Lumet in the documentary film titled by Sidney Lumet. He grew up on the lower east side in nineteen fifty seven. He went from directing theater and TV. Two movies with twelve angry men. You're asking us to believe that somebody else did the stabbing with exactly the same kind of knife. Larger a million or one go onto make more New York classics like Serpico Dog Day afternoon and network. He died in twenty eleven. I'm not comfortable anyplace but New York when I leave New York for any other place in the United States My nose starts to bleed. Filmmakers at this time took full advantage of New York locations for their exterior shooting. When they needed a controlled indoor set they may do with whatever studios were available. Tv Or old movie studios the old Bronx by graph for example operated as a rental studio under different names until the seventy s the Astoria Studios. Meanwhile were still occupied by the army. There was some leftover stages from the twenty s and they reuse them and Sidney Lumet told me amazing stories of going onto these studios which he was in an editing room up in the Bronx. That had been Edison's old editing suite with an e draw you know kind of worked into the curtains E for Edison. These were the oldest movie studios in the world and they were using them in the nineteen fifties to make all those great early in mid fifty s movies like Twelve angry men and on the waterfront the city eventually recognized how vital New York and the screener to each other in nineteen sixty six mayor. John established the first mayor's film office in the world to lower hurdles to filming their Lindsay's film office streamline the permitting process and removed a lot of red tape for shooting in the city he even dedicated a police. Unit to location shoots then in nineteen seventy. The army moved production to different site and turned the Astoria property over to the federal government. This was not simply a movement of some soldiers because most of the people making the films were grips carpenters electricians and actress who were part of. New York's commercial motion picture industry so they were not at all happy when this plug got pulled in Astoria. The complex sat abandoned. For years unprotected and open vandals people would go in there. Rip The copper out of the walls and those people with a purpose then they were also just people in there for mischief terrible condition in the meantime you have this eyesore at the edge of a residential communities have halfway between the area and Long Island city. It's just getting worse and worse and worse. They abandoned cars dropped all around weeds growing through the sidewalk. I remember this very clearly. The film unions local community and the city got together to preserve the studio site. Save film jobs and clean up the neighborhood in nineteen seventy seven. They formed the nonprofit a story of Motion Picture and Television Center Foundation. They managed to prevent the studio from being sold off or turn down by getting the site on the National Register of historic places a process that normally took years.
When Diet Culture Pervades the Workplace
"GONNA talk about something I've been thinking about a lot lately yield diet culture Enjoy I am. I'm calling to the most recent episode I really appreciate it. I mean Kate Stotts and talking to people and having the hard conversations surrounding the tactic way we speak about eating and and I sort of wanted to get more of your thoughts on how huge gently calling as you guys. Put it When when people are making those comments I you know really struggle with US mostly at work in my last job? Eight worked at the State Corporation. And do things like the biggest lose. No change and They'd have biggles or pizza around. Everyone would constantly absolutely talk about how they felt about themselves. After now I work in a much smaller but You know she just the free people that I work with those constantly talking about steps and Muslim townies and things like that so I was just wondering if you have any suggestions for You know toll professional ways that you can say like hey like that's sort of puts me into a spiral Without having to make everyone else so totally awkward Yeah really looking forward to. Hey you guys are able to talk about this. I'm I'm many episodes. Sometimes they're thanks so much of the podcast. 'cause people people have a wonderful holiday. We're talking about it. Diet culture at work is so pernicious. Well it's also awful. How just these? This has become like as basic a conversation topic as the weather team overall eating bagels on Bagel Friday. Like own disgusting me to like that. It's just it's almost become something to fill space now because So apart of human interaction I'd love to hear how other people have navigated this in a work environment will i. I was GONNA say when it's ingrained like there. Someone is hosting a biggest loser. Competition that to me and it's part of the company is something I would flag to human resources human resources playing long again. Then I mean then. I don't know what to do so you're right help us someone. Tell us how to handle bill. This one I just. I just wonder if I don't know. How do you start with like a wholesale re education and rewiring hiring of people's brains? Because that's what it's going to take for people to kind of stop participating in this diet culture. Yeah and I ultimately you know you can infuse people with information and modeling and modeling and you can share your opinion and you can also I would say set some boundaries to protect yourself from the spiral that you feel. Yeah you know like condone engaged. Don't sit there and you're I mean it's too bad that this is what I'm suggesting and maybe I'm wrong but don't sit down at the table with the people who you know are going to engage in negative self talk about eating whatever is being offered. Yeah I'm sorry you're in. The situation. Sounds really hard. Kazan really hard. And you know I'll be honest. It's not something I have given thought to because my work environments in the past six no my work environments for almost a decade have been remote. Oh Wow so I have not been in a corporate office setting even though I was working for corporations you know up until like four years ago. I've not been in a corporate office setting in a while so I haven't had to have these discussions in a work setting. Yeah sorry. Listener sounds tough. Yeah I'd love to but you know again. I'd love to hear from other listeners about this yeah because I do think it is so pervasive. Yes totally
Life of an Architect
"This is the first podcast episode of Twenty Twenty and both Andrew. Nye have changed jobs in a manner of speaking making. I changed jobs in a big way and I have been getting flooded with emails and direct messages on various social media platforms. Asking me about the particulars is because either those people have or they are considering going through a similar change. I felt that this would be a good topic to kick off the New Year because they're all sorts sorts of things happening. You know especially with me with Andrew even here with the podcast some of which take a little more than usual planning and we wanted to let you know. As far advances advances we could of some of the places. We're going to be this year so that hopefully you can come and say hello. Should you find yourself in the same place at the same time. We'll get into for those details throughout today's episode cool. Yeah it's going to be awesome. It's gotta be cool all right so we're going to get into this now. Do you WANNA start under. Do you want me to start you. You go ahead and start. I'll interject his needed. Maybe we'll do a little back and forth about it as we start going. Sounds good to me. I also think that we should discuss quitting your job verses Mrs Changing Your Job Even if there is no obvious distinctions semantically. I think there's a huge difference between those two words. Quitting and changing changing quitting to me seems so imply like your flip the tables and you're storming out of the room tossing lit matches over your shoulder. You know that whole burning everything scorch orch start a little bit. Probably I mean it seems like it when you say I quit my job. It always seems to have a negative tone to it. Well it also seems to imply even though it's not this way and it's just again the phrasing of it to me changing your job means it's more calculated like you know there's a path change or course chain that you wanna make so you kind of put certain things in in place or put certain actions in motion before leaving your other job so that that way this is a calculated course correction Nada. I'm quitting and then I go deal with the fact that I just quit my job. Afterwards I would agree to me. It seems like changing jobs is a little bit. I'm going going somewhere for a new or better opportunity where quitting to me implies. I'm not working at this place anymore. I can't stand it. I don't WanNa be here more as as opposed to I'm changing jobs. It's doesn't mean necessarily that you dislike where you were just there's better or newer opportunities where you're headed like you say that's a calculated thing. Not Like I quit over lunch and then go to look for a job which I have quit over lunch before him. I know that was the reference. Well we know that chain gear jobs demands some measure of your attention so to get into that. Let me just kind of set the table. That says I left my last job the one the where I had my name on the door and I could pretty much do whatever I wanted and I need to make sure everyone else. I enjoyed all my co workers. Add some awesome clients and I had a really cool projects going on and for about eighty five percent of my work existence maybe ninety percent. I'm not doing real math here. It was pretty ideal and yet despite all those does ideal circumstances I do not ever wonder how I got to be at my current job. But I'm at Boca POW now and an actually look this up today. Day to day is four months and eleven days in so it's still pretty fresh really. It's been four months. Yeah that sounds a lot blah. It doesn't feel like four. I didn't think it'd been that long. Actually I was like it's been like two months now right. Yeah four months and eleven days so I don't have any regrets even though it's kind of interesting they brought me in a level to where I obviously I'm not getting the keys to the kingdom but I'm not being brought in to just manipulate digital files in Ramat. That's not where my skill set is and that's not why they want me there. You've been working for a long enough. That's not really what you had either but one of the things that's interesting is. This is a pretty big firm and Boka Powell. There's about about one hundred ten plus people and they're in the kind of the eight figure invoicing range in a year so they bet a lot of stuff in place while. Oh yes kinda surprising but when they brought me over they said there's a honeymoon period of six months and once I hit six months then they start to bring me into more higher level firm meetings. They essentially don't want to lift the skirt before they decided that this is not a failed experience experience. That's kind of a statement. Maybe but yeah I think so and I didn't realize it was going to be six months. Most places have six month trial period. That's really the way to put it. Yeah and so luckily for me because I actually had this conversation today of the. How's it going? I know it's gone fine. No worse so four months eleven days and I am really anticipating all the things that are going to open up to me at the six month period. Kazan collect a lot of skill sets that I have right now that I'm not using is they don't need me to do it because I'm not in the right kind of meetings so even then with what I'm doing right now it's gone pretty well pretty happy with it but you feel like you're settling in a little bit. I I mean I know for a while is like well. I don't know but you feel like you're doing all right right now. And that's something we'll get into an just a bit because there's definitely been some growing pains it hasn't always always been you know milk and honey since I've come over there's been moments where I've been incredibly frustrated and there's been actually more times than I really wanted Mitt but I think that's kind of the reason we're recording this podcast to talk about stuff that other people might be experiencing that folks generally don't put out there because I know people are private but there are moments when I go golly. Am I doing what I need to be doing. Because it's so different. It's so different. Let me get into the reasons why left. Like why would I make this change some. I'm fifty one years old. I've been doing the type of work that I had been doing. Which is kind of high touch white glove small commercial and high end residential essential work for about twenty years? And I like to think I was pretty good at it. I certainly enjoyed doing it. So what could possibly convince me to leave. The the circumstances were add my name on the door almost complete autonomy to do whatever I want to go do something that I have no real background in working on like. Why would anybody we do that? That's a reasonable question. I mean besides they tripled your salary and I'm not saying they did but I'm saying if that was the case then maybe so they didn't they didn't man. I'm just saying no but that was part of the consideration quite honestly because it's not just I will say this. So my compensation with where I work now is better than my best year ever at my last firm and my best year ever my last one was heavily contingent on bonuses and I was part of it and I didn't have any control all at my last firm over the bonus amounts. I could go eleven and a half months going. It's going to be great. It's GonNa be great and then one person decides that it's not going to be great. I have no controller controller which is one of the room one of the reasons why leaving so in a more structured manner. So let's get into this. I left for two major reasons and honestly honestly. I don't think anyone would be surprised by what those things were. Not because it was obvious due to my personal reasons or because my life is south there. Anybody can figure it out but because if you're going to leave a pretty amazing situation for the black abyss of doing something you've never done before. Yeah those reasons should be pretty obvious. I mean I think anybody could kind of rub two sticks together and come up with pretty educated guesses. Do I might do that. So first reason conflict inflict with one of the partners now. It wasn't anything nasty or salacious. It was just some fundamental disagreements on how things should be done and I'll say would you be. He's surprised to learn that I'm an opinionated person. Andrew no I know how particularly you are very particular all the time all the time and furthermore. I don't really care for situations where I feel like. I don't have a voice in the matter part of me thinks if you want my opinion you need to be prepared to act on it. I don't need facetime as time. I'm not that person. So the senior partner at my last firm has had his own practice where it's just been him calling the shots for twenty five or six or seven years or something like that now and hopefully. I'll say this in the most gracious way possible. Because I I care for him deeply I would even say I love him as a Human Ping but he was who he was and he was GonNa do what he felt was right no matter what which on one hand is a great attribute. You need to be have convictions and stand by those convictions. That doesn't necessarily make you a good business partner. So I struggled with the idea that no matter what I did or sad ed or however sound my arguments or my logic may be in the end. He was GONNA do whatever he wanted to do. I didn't love that. Yeah but I can understand that actually I I mean as a business owner for ten or so years that you get used to doing things the way you WanNa do him and you used to do them. I thought many times about whether or not I wanted to ever take on a partner and part of me as I know. 'cause I don't WanNa have to share responsibility. I wanted to share that. But you know the decision making process says yeah and it's hard I'm GonNa get a yeah the longer you do it. The harder it gets harder
THE NEWS with Anthony Davis
New Iranian general steps out of Soleimanis shadow.
"I'm Anthony Davis New Iranian general has stepped down to the shadows to lead the country could force becoming responsible for Tehran's proxies across the Middle East as the Islamic republic threatens the US with hauch revenge filling.
