Lake Powell is now saying its lowest water level since the mid 1960s because of the region's continuing drought. Colorado state university water scientist Brad udall. The Lake is daft 75% from when it was nearly full in the year 2000. So we have a quarter of this Lake upon which 40 million Americans depend still left.

"On our next stop on the Colorado River, we sent our producer Denise Guerra and LA times water reporter Ian James to southern Utah. You might remember an episode one of our series, we spoke about the country's largest reservoir Lake mead, which currently sits three quarters empty. Today we venture to the second largest reservoir in the United States, Lake Powell, and the contentious dam that created it. That's right Gustavo. The Glenn canyon dam was controversial even before it was built in the 1960s. Some people may know Lake Powell as a recreational area or tourist destination, but it's also a monumental piece of infrastructure powering the southwest. There are about 240,000 homes in 6 states, including the indigenous tribes that rely on the power the dam generates. But as the Colorado River dries up, so does Lake Powell. Environmentalists have long criticized the dam in its effects on the environment. Someone would like to see it gone altogether, while others would like to continue operating the dam during this time of drought. There's now discussions on whether it's best to open the gates and drain the Lake so that it can fill up leaked mead. The dam was built for the purpose of storing water and generating electricity. But with the drought and lower water levels, Ian and I wanted to see for ourselves what was happening there and talk to the people affected. So we took a trip to that area of the Colorado River, and let me tell you Gustavo, there were times that got pretty dicey. Yeah, some parts, there's actually one area that we heard some people describe as the Gates of mordor. Mordor, like Lord of the Rings, Gollum, the precious, like the place of evil and doomed? Yeah, we didn't see Gollum, but it did feel that way a bit forbidding. The current's a little bit faster here. And very much seems like a more treacherous than usual. Getting a little rougher here. Whoo. All right, Denise and Ian, take us there. The transition that has taken place in the Colorado River basin. Is astounding. The Colorado River basin is in a historic drought. Deadpool is like where there's not enough water to pull water through the dam. We're getting dangerously close to that point. What happens in this basin right here is going to have an effect. On basins all throughout the west. If we don't stop, this is going to be hard to walk away from. I'm Denise gera, you're listening to the times, essential news from the LA times. It's January 20th, 2023. And here with me today to get into more detail is water reporter Ian James. Hey, Ian. Hey, Denise. Ian have the recent storms affected our reservoirs like Lake Powell. They will affect it a bit. The reservoirs depend on melting snow and storms have brought snow to the Rocky Mountains. It's an above average amount so far this winter. That snowpack will bring a modest boost to Lake Powell and other reservoirs, but it can only go so far because the reservoirs have been declining over the past 23 years. So where did the idea to add dams to the Colorado River begin? The idea of harnessing water from the river took shape in the early 1900s. The great ambition was to, as they talked about it then, to reclaim the arid lands and put them to use for agriculture. Hoover Dam was built during The Great Depression in the 1930s, and that was followed by other dams, including Glenn canyon dam, that was built in the 1960s. And then Lake Powell is filled. It's the second largest reservoir on the river, and it's located in the upper basin, a region that includes Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico. Just downstream from the dam is the dividing line between the upper basin and the lower basin at a place called Lee's ferry. And from there the river continues through the lower basin states of Arizona, Nevada, and California. All the way to Mexico. Okay, back to basics. How does Glenn canyon dam work? What exactly does it do with the Colorado River water? The dam stores water and as the water is released and flows through the dam's intakes, there are 8 generating units, the water spins the turbines and generates electricity. And the issue now is that the water level in the dam is less than 35 feet from a critical point where the dam would no longer be able to generate power. There are various people, especially environmental advocates who look at Glenn canyon dam and say it was a mistake to build it and it shouldn't have happened. Many people have warned over the years that there wouldn't be enough water. In fact, even long before anyone was talking about Glenn canyon dam or Lake Powell, back in the late 1800s, the namesake of Lake Powell, John Wesley Powell, who led historic expedition through the Grand Canyon. He had warned in one speech and this is how he put it. That you are piling up a heritage of conflict and litigation over water rights. For there is not sufficient water to supply these lands. In the 1950s, also, a California water lawyer named north cut Ely argued against building the dam and said it wasn't needed. But it was built and it later years David brower who led the Sierra club and who was someone who shared advice with John regularly, called the dams construction, a terrible

"A Martinez. Water from the drought played Colorado River is much sought after and much disputed. Cities such as Phoenix and Las Vegas depend on it, but the single biggest user of that water is a single irrigation district in the southern tip of California, which serves about 400 farms. The farmers there face growing pressure to give up some of that water. Dan Charles reports from El Centro California. Drive straight east from San Diego across the mountains and you come to bone dry desert. And then suddenly, weirdly, there's mile after mile of green fields. Steve Benson, whose co owner of Benson farms drives me by a crew planting lettuce. I have to get out and see what I assume it's romaine lettuce, but it might be iceberg lettuce. This is not California's central valley. The country's biggest producer of produce and nuts. It's imperial valley, along the Mexican border. And these fields only exist because more than a century ago, fortune seeking land speculators and engineers dug a canal to bring in water from the Colorado River, 80 miles east of here Today, the imperial irrigation district takes more water from the Colorado River than all of Arizona and Nevada combined. It's enough to cover all the irrigated land here, almost 800 square miles with 5 inches of water. Every year. But now with the giant reservoirs of Lake mead and Lake Powell shrinking fast, the federal government is demanding a plan for cutbacks, up and down the river. And Sarah Porter, whose director of the Kyle center for water policy at Arizona state university says everybody is looking at the imperial irrigation district.

And if you've ever flown into this city you might have noticed something strange from above, you can see the backyard swimming pools, green lawns, and golf courses that seem out of place on the floor of the desert. You'd be forgiven for wondering from your window seat how that could be. The southwest is in a 22 year drought. The main reservoirs on the Colorado River, only a quarter full, and the feds are telling western states to make profound cuts to their water use lest those reservoirs run dry.

Behind my houseboat, there used to be a zero rock, and now it's 30 feet tall. The Rock is, The Rock is 30 feet tall. So that goes to show you how low we got. Water levels on Lake Powell, one of the largest reservoirs in the country are down more than a 150 feet from full pool. The term water managers use for filled. Rock spires, canyons, bridges and arches, the sorts of awe inspiring formations. You'd see at Grand Canyon or arches national park are emerging from its Turquoise waters. Which is what we're here to see. Only our guide isn't exactly sad to see the reservoir drop. I can't believe there's nobody here. Eric Balkan is the director of the Glen canyon institute. A nonprofit that wants to see the area below the reservoir surface, restore. It's not exactly a popular opinion among Lake Powell's faithful. The reservoir is one of the busiest tourist attractions in the country. People are like, oh, this place is so beautiful and like if you were to build a dam in the Grand Canyon like the bureau wanted to, you know, that would be a beautiful reservoir too, and it would also be a crime against nature. A crime against nature. Balkan thinks that's what happened here at Glen canyon. And he's not alone in that sentiment. But to understand why, we gotta step away from the boat real quick. And jump back in time with a little help from the bureau Balkan just mentioned the bureau of reclamation. The date was February 20th, 1959. The place a remote corner of the Navajo Indian reservation in northern Arizona. Back then, there was no Lake pout. Only a muddy Colorado River, cutting deep through it almost Martian landscape. A place novelist Edward Abbey once described as a portion of earth's original Paradise. Here we go. The making place. Ken slate was a close friend of Abby's and a river runner on the Colorado. Now 92, he says Glenn canyon was home. You come to love it even more than anything. But they ruined it all when they put the water in there. It took a decade of blasting. Digging and pouring concrete to build the Glen canyon dam. The goal similar to Hoover Dam and Lake mead just downriver was to provide water storage along the Colorado and to generate electricity. The dam was finished in 1966. Glen canyon was drowned. Then, two decades ago, scientists say the mega drought began. And in recent years, water levels really dropped. Holy moly. Boating into a side canyon of the Colorado with Eric Balkan, we approach one of the largest natural bridges in the world. A thick span of red sandstone over classic waters. The last time this span was out, Neil Armstrong had walked on the moon yet. We put her in slowly, reflected sun like glimmers on the underside of the bridge like a kaleidoscope. We are gonna fit, right? Yeah. Oh my God. We make it through navigating upstream past the bone white tops of dead trees until the reservoir ends in a narrow canyon. We hit shore anchor up and begin hiking. Before the drought, this whole area was underwater. A white bathtub ring stains The Rock more than a hundred feet overhead. Oh my God, this is so cool. This is totally different than the last time I was here. Near the reservoir's edge, the ground is kind of soupy. And there's not much vegetation just red rock. But as you move up canyon, a creek starts to take shape. And the hike turns more into waiting. Sprouting willows and cotton goods, along with invasive species, line the shores about hip height. And songbirds trill against the canyon's edge. Amidst the occasional historical artifact. Pull tab beer can. Maybe a mile up the creek. The vegetation starts to grow so thick that waiting turns into bushwhack. I mean, we're walking through like 15 foot high willow bushes here. The point of this whole venture, what Balkan wants us to see is that Glenn canyon is recovering. The longer an area has been out of the water, the greater the recovery. I just want to bring like every water manager and everybody that's negotiating the future management of Lake Powell and Lake mead and I want them to come in and experience this and just know that when you're talking about refilling Lake Powell reservoir potentially, you're talking about red drowning this place. Bulk in the glint canyon institute are advocating for a new approach called Phil mead first. As in the next time we get a big snow year, instead of filling up Lake mead and Lake Powell equally, which has been the policies since Glenn canyon dam's construction, water managers should fill mead first, flooding Glen canyon and filling like Powell only if necessary. Hence the unpopularity with some Lake Powell's half $1 billion tourism industry. But Balkan says now is the time to talk about it. This place is changing and it deserves updated management. For a long time, Balkan says he felt like Don Quixote, tilting at windmills. People just said we were crazy and look at what's happening, you know? The reservoir is fading away. And with climate change, it's hard to see a scenario where it's full again. Jack Schmidt is a watershed scientist at Utah state university. Everyone understands that we're in a new normal. He says the whole debate about Glenn canyon is secondary to the bigger issue on the Colorado, which is that we're overdrawing from a shrinking checking account. It doesn't matter whether water is stored in Powell in need 50 50. It doesn't matter for solving the problem of the imbalance of the checking account. That problem can only be solved by reducing consumptive use. The 7 states and Native American tribes it depend on the Colorado River, are renegotiating its management now. And Schmidt isn't sure that the film need first proposal will find its way to the bargaining table. But he agrees it's a good time to have the conversation. Back in bullfrog up shore from the Marina and floating house boats, market Edwards and Steve Thompson are preparing for a day of bass fishing. And they're also game to have that conversation. They love Lake Powell. Edward says he doesn't think it's practical to have it go away completely. I'll floated all these rivers in the west. I mean, I would have loved to have been down here before they put the Lake in. And I would have fought against it, but it's too late now. Too late to get rid of the dam, even if there's not much water behind it. Nathan rob NPR news Glen canyon. Support for NPR in the following message come from data iku, the platform for everyday AI.

"With us. So all of this would have been underwater. Yeah. So what does this tell you about what's happening on the Colorado River? Well, it's a signal of the long-term problem we've been seeing since the year 2000, which is climate change is reducing the flows of the Colorado significantly. Lake Powell and Lake mead the two biggest reservoirs in the country were nearly full in 2000. Today they are just about 30% capacity. The lakes now a 155 feet below four. It's dropped something like 50 feet this year. And it's still dropping. Yes. And that's when power generation actually becomes to come into question. It would drop so low that it may not be able to not be able to generate power. I do electric power. Yeah. Brad you'd all have strong connections to the river. As secretary of the interior, his uncle Stewart udall opened the Glen canyon dam. His father, congressman Moe udall, fought to channel river water to Arizona. A hundred yards. As a young man, Brad was a Colorado River guide. Today he analyzes the impact of climate change on water resources. Is the west on a collision course with climate change? In some ways yes, but we have fully utilized this system we've over allocated it, and we now need to think about how to turn some of this back because the only lever we control right now in the river is that demand lever, we have no control over the supply. So we have to dial back demand. 70% of Colorado River water goes to agriculture. When the federal government declared the water shortage, it triggered mandatory cutbacks. Penal county, Arizona got hit hard. An out county alone, we're going to be losing 300,000 acre feet of surface water. That's water that would be delivered from Lake Powell, like mead,.

"Long reservoir that impounds the Colorado River is massive. It can hold 25 million acre feet of water five times as much as Lake Shasta here in California. But as the Colorado River dwindles, the level of the reservoir has dropped 140 FT Since 2000 and 50 ft in the last year as the lake's surface recedes, leaving a bathtub like ring marking its evaporation Glen Canyon, a natural wonder which was partially flooded by the dam has re emerged. Elizabeth Colbert toward that canyon and wrote about the experience in New York are feature harkening back to some of John McPhee's similarly breathtaking writing about humans attempts to control nature. And here to talk with us about Lake Powell the climate and are changing landscape. We have the Pulitzer Prize winner herself. Elizabeth Kolbert welcome. Hey, thanks for having me. So tell us about Lake Powell and why you went to visit this reservoir. Well, I was very deeply influenced, You know, as a as a much younger person by works like Edward Abbey's desert solitary and for all of your listeners out there who are red Desert solitary, they will know. Uh, and for those who haven't I recommended, um, that the last chapter uh Or maybe even two chapters are trip that I'd be takes with a friend of his down the Colorado the part of the Colorado Glen Canyon. That's about to be damned and flooded shortly before. That was no longer possible and it became like Powell, and it's a very, uh he describes as spectacular It was. It was considered by many people to be more spectacular, The Grand Canyon and so I've always had that sort of bug in my mind. Wow. Wish I could see Canyon, huh? And so then, as you saw that leak, Powell's you know level is getting lower and lower. Did you start to think like, Hey, maybe I'm actually gonna get to see this Beautiful canyon. Yeah, Actually, I like you know, like a lot of journalists. I'm always reading a lot of news from around the country, and, um, I saw a little feature. And I think it was on a Utah TV station of some reporters who had gone out to actually see parts of of Glen Canyon that are emerging now that the lake level is so low, So if you think about it, you know Lake Powell is this huge reservoir. It's very weirdly shaped. It's um I think in the piece, I describe it as having a shape of a snake that swallowed a porcupine. It's really the Colorado and then all of these tributaries that feed into the Colorado and they all sort of swelled up when the water level was high and now as the water level Is dropping the edges of that landscaper now visible again. And so I immediately thought. Well, you know, I I want to see that too. I want to see what there is to be seen now, and I Call that some folks there's actually a group called the Glen Canyon Institute. That's been working for 20 years to sort of liberate the Glen Canyon as it were, and they very kindly offered to, you know. Take me around. Wow. So tell me about how the work why the water level is dropping. I mean, there's obviously the natural factors or semi natural factors of the drought. But there's also about the position that this reservoir plays right in the Western U. S. Water system. Well, the water level and late power is dropping for a few reasons, One of which, as you say, and sort of the primary one is, you know a terrible drought. This is a really Serious drought that said the American West. I'm sure I don't need to tell, you know, listeners out in California. Um, but this is a biggie and people have looked at it in the context of historical droughts, which we can Recreate going back to tree ring records actually going back roughly 1200 years. So in the last 1200 years, this drought already and we're not through the yet, uh Ranks as the second worst in 1200 years. Um, so it's a very serious drought. So that's you know, really reduced the flow of water into, uh, Lake Powell and also let me and I should say and into the Colorado. Um, Meanwhile, you know their withdrawals from like Paoli Powell feeds into it. Need and a lot of water that's used in the Southwest. Uh For both agriculture and drinking water is is sort of coming out of that system. And then there's also climate change, layered on top and That is just Quite likely reducing the long term just the average annual flow on the Colorado is dropping, and it's probably going to continue to drop. So you put all these things together and you get the kind of drops in the lake level that you alluded to at the top of the show. So what did you Why is climate change, reducing the floating because of reduced snowpack in the various places that feed the Colorado? Well, I think I'm bigger. I mean, yes, there's there's reduced snowpack. And there's increased evaporation. So one of the points that people make. It was made to me When I was researching the article is you need sort of more precipitation to get the same amount of run off because the soil is so dry, Uh, that is absorbing a lot of the water so That water never even hits the Colorado So that's the setup. And you arrive now in Lake Powell, Flash Glen Canyon and you and what do you see? Like it wasn't what you hoped it would be this You know, one of most beautiful places on Earth. Well, when you first get to lake how you know we had to rent a boat and there are a couple of marinas. We got to the marina, and it was It's quite a scene as it's fantastic scene. It's this um you know, looks like awake, but a weird lake and the lake in the middle of the desert, You know, really, really, really dry landscape and all these people out on Houseboats. It's kind of wild. Um and The part of the lake. That is sort of the central part of the lake is very is very beautiful and you know, weird sort of way. Um, but then we took sort of some of the side canyons often means stem of the Colorado and got to those landscapes. Parts of the landscapes that have re emerged from Lake Powell. And there are amazing sites out there. Um, you know these fantastic little side canyons that are either have great sort of grotto like formations. We went through a spot called Cathedral in the desert, which is a sort of amazing Amphitheater like formation. Um, with the waterfall. There are wonderful waterfalls, So it's it's really it is quite a spectacular landscape. And has it been champion spent sitting under water for a very long time. So how has that changed that, you know, Original natural landscape. Well, it has, um a lot of it is sort of buried. What happens is that you know, the Colorado which the name of the Colorado was, um you know, means colored red. It's a should be sort of a reddish. River carrying a lot of sediment, and what happens is as the Colorado hits the slack water that's now like Powell because of the dynamics of that. The sentiment drops out. So a lot of the, um canyons have been sort of buried under sediments..
A 20-Year Megadrought Threatens Hydropower in the West
"A twenty year. Mega drought in the west is threatening hydropower. For millions of people so the federal government is taking emergency action it sending water from other reservoirs to lake powell to help. Keep the power turbines. They're spinning. here's michael. Elizabeth sack is from colorado public radio at elk creek marina. People wait in line to back their trailers into the water to pull their boats out. And some like walter. Slut cough are frustrated. Resumes legua up and down many times. But we're not happy with it this year. Of course because we're all getting kicked out early and we pay for slips for the season. Blue mesa is colorado's largest reservoir. It's already less than thirty percent full. And now it's being forced to sacrifice more water to send to lake powell eric. Logan is head of operations at elk. Creek marina he had to shut down six weeks early because of the low water levels. It's a big hit for us for sure. There's a bunch of employees. That doctor would be employed into october and suddenly they're out looking for employment in middle of august. The deepening drought in the west has dealt a double blow to blue mesa this summer with climate change there's less snowpack and warmer temperatures increase. Evaporation so less water is making it into the colorado river and reservoirs like blue mesa and now the federal government is taking water from this lake into other reservoirs. If we were full it wouldn't be that big deal but since we're already so low and we're barely hanging on by our fingertips on trying to stay open. You take eight feet of water and suddenly we got shut the doors and move everything out to deeper water and there's nothing we can do about it. Lake powell on the utah. Arizona border hit its lowest level on record earlier this summer. Logan worries the reservoir will need even more water from blue mesa. If the drought doesn't improve the question is are they going to release whatever we get. That would become a very big problem for everyone around here. Blue may sat and the other reservoirs were built in the nineteen sixties for times of drought. It's a bank of water that the states can tap when they need. It says john macleod. A water lawyer in colorado. The water always goes to lake. Powell and this release is part of the plan. And it's using the reservoirs for one of their intended purposes
The Upsell That Made Me Sick To My Stomach...
"Now what do you think about an offer that so good that you feel six or something actually giving it somebody because it's it's such a good deal. I guess probably the right offer right. Make an irresistible one time offer vaco. Here's i of course may some dollars off so defense in bucks. That's that's an offer but it's not an irresistible insane insane offer when you are sick to your stomach because there's no way we can do this this this i can't give all i can't people this and this and all these things for this price because it's not worth it to me like you're sick to your stomach that's when you're close that's when you probably have the right author and for me. It was this big hog just like. Oh my gosh. Like i've been stingy. I've been trying to my e to make sure they offer the things that i want to sell. Not what people actually want and they're looking at it from my okay. If i'm not making an offer. I gotta make something irresistible right. If only gonna make a fifteen twenty percent conversion rate on accelerate to forty fifty percent it has to be irresistible We're in the process right now of purchasing a company. I can't talk about yet. So as we finalize the deal might be finalized. When get back from lake powell. So i'm sure we can. We shouting it from the roofs but the funnel really buying the same because the funnels are so good like someone buys a product through the funnel the average cart value Is like one hundred eighty dollars saying spend one hundred dollars to sell this product which is crazy right. It's so good but you look at the up so flow and it's the same thing it's like the most insane ears this blah for you. Sure when the personal buying the company from his first print together was like six or stomach ache. I could easily sell his thousand bucks or two thousand or more and i'm going to do for ninety seven mike. We what you can't do that like insane right. We spent fifty thousand dollars creating the kate so through for ninety seven dollars. And when you get that the internal dialogue and you had your fighting it because this doesn't make any logical sense that's when you probably have an actual irresistible

"The season out there. It's a big concern, isn't it? Yeah. You know, I think last year was, um unfortunate. Um View of what that looks like when it's going from the Southwest, historically having an early fire season spring and they slowly get into monsoon season and Southern California in the Northern California transitions. We're all in fire season at the same time, these days where chief fantasy talked about his early fire season career. We talked about fire season and and we moved into the Southwest and then back in Southern California, and then we have those anomaly years in between. That intensity level is, um, happening earlier, and it's longer, more sustained period through more of the country, and that's what's really straining the system as far as resources and mobilization, But we're looking at this year. The drought and the snowpack is pretty alarming, for sure, Chief fantasy. He's talking about elevation and you heard the cut there about how the drought was impacting things based on elevation and how it's getting higher and higher. Are you seeing the same thing in your area? Well, we are and I, uh We often talk about fire spread, and for the last several years, we remarked that we're seeing spread. Uh, at rates that we've never seen before. Um, it's everything to do with the drought. You know, you look back. Um Few weeks ago, the Palisades fire in L. A city that's pretty close to the ocean a lot a lot of, uh, marine layer influence, and there's actually video of that fire, actively burning spreading quickly. Under the marine layer in the fog. I can't think of too many times I've ever seen anything like that. We're talking with Robert Garcia, the chief of the Angeles National Forest and Brian Fantasy. He's the chief of the Orange County Fire Authority. For a while there, there was this sense that we might have been recovering from the drought. But then I see things like Lake Powell at the lowest level in its history and recorded history, and we have a problem. I mean, there is a serious problem. So is this Is this the kind of thing that keeps you guys up at night? Sure. I mean, I think I think about, um you know, For example, just in the last few days, you know, we mobilize resources up and down the state and obviously out of state as well. And thinking about coming into fire season so early, um, not just locally, but across, we start thinking about resource availability. I commend Chief fantasy and the other departments that are looking at augmentation for things such as the quick, Quick response Force, and you know when, when the Forest Service adds assets or capability, uh, local fire departments add. We share resources across boundaries, So any time we see an increasing capability, it's really helpful to think about our response because What I call a total mobilization or total force mobilization. We all benefit when each department increases and we leveraged the tools across the jurisdictions. But I do think that thinking about the drought in our fuel conditions. Um I was looking at in front of me here. The most recent fuels and fire behavior advisory and this goes to all our firefighters, and this is particularly focused around Central California in the Sierras, and it it it gets that kind of the fuel conditions we're seeing currently in Utah and Nevada just this week. Mobilize resources and some of our hankers out that way. So when the system starts to get taxes, early indicators of things to come and like the example of the Palestinian sisters Um, you know, outside of a Santa Ana wind event Fuels shouldn't be burning that way in the early season, so I think it's definitely a good eye opener for us all. Yeah, I think it at the very least. It's forcing you guys to have to be more proactive than you've ever been. That's correct. Yeah, So when you're deploying resources and you know, like projecting how you're going to use something like if someone has a budget and How do you go about doing that? How do you go about knowing what to send and where to send it? Well, you know, it's and it always is. It's all about relationships right? And so chief Garcia, myself Chief Terrazas, chief Osby chief Lorenzo in Ventura County were close friends. And we're emailing or texting. We're talking all the time. And if any one of us, you know is in a position where we need assistance, or I mean, we're just talking. We found that the system is great. There's there's no better. Mutual aid system in the world there than in California. But nothing replaces those relationships. And that's how we're. We're closing the gap very quickly. The season of fire continues. But first this is K. F I am 6 40 Time for a news update..

Achievement Vs. Fulfillment: Which Do You Want More?
"Right so. He has no last week at Lake POW with my family, and we had an amazing relaxing vacation, which is really good problem with the entrepreneurial brain. US EP entrepreneur personality types. When we try to relax, we can't and it drives US crazy. Because we gotta be moving forward momentum, right and so. I started thinking about projects and things I wanna to do things that are fun and like. I know some years know that I am working on eventually writing next book, which could be the bootstrap book Tunnicliffe Story, but the problem is Cleveland Stories and that done. Yes I. Don't know where it's going to go or source was kind of like this things in the back burner that I'm going to do someday. It's not a huge rush. But I'm excited for that, but I was like I almost any something fun to be creating right like I dunno, as a creator, I need to create sure has the same way right and and I'm creating. You know we have the New Tacoma Quebec's coaching programs creating a lot of fun i. want something just. Excited enjoy this is fun and lighthearted deadlines or thing just to create to create right. It's all I had an idea. For Project, I'm going to tell you the details, the name or anything. Other than it's, it's going to be the one and only time I ever talk about personal development. Anyway, right marketing guy that's. Sick with but obviously I've had access to a lot of people. Most people have access to in this world and its lifetime, and had a chance to learn from some amazing people and. Wanted to create this thing I don't know what it's GonNa. Be I duNNo, if it's a real book of it's like a book feminine, just giving away for free as the lead magnet, I have no idea. But. The title I'll tell you. The subtitle subtitle is the science of achievement. The art fulfillment in Vero Tony Robbins Talk. He talks about a lot of times to master masters signs of achievement where the had know the science and how to achieve anything, and then you have to master the art of fulfillment and funny, because he talks about a lot of times, but always struggle with that personally. Because he doesn't go deep into the whole thing you know, and so at Lake Powell this week thinking about this sure thing about the art and the science. And the science of treatment is lost. If I talked about anyway, you know here's the step-by-step, I? Here's the things you need to do things in this order and you have success, but the article films I personally struggle with like I'm such an achiever. I want to this this this and you. What's next on each next thing the next thing he moving towards? Running towards this this invisible goal that we don't really know what it is. I think a lot has producers and entrepreneurs and people like me and probably you. With the film, and like, how do you feel fulfilled and cinching? Is that the article film? It's tough because it's like art. It's not like the science sciences like here's the things to do to get the thing like this art fulfillment and I've always struggled and so as I was thinking about putting together this project. I started thinking about that and I started. Just think signs of cheating. My brain goes GonNa Mike Okay. I'm Jim achiever. Boom here's the thing. But then I started realizing that like the the the path of achievement the article film. It's almost the opposite like a union being and I served Rosina's like. Oh my gosh, they're looking deeper. Different topics have been concepts I was like. Oh, my gosh is true and so many things. Then you realized before so for example. This example shared kind of help s even what I'm. I had. Everyone talks about morning routines right. If you follow any of the fitness, guys, a health and fitness, the bio hackers the the entrepreneurs they all talk about you gotTa have more routine Tina's structure and things like that? You GotTa wake and you gotTa know. This always seems right. Talked about morning and starts accusing to do before you go to bed to increase your sleep patterns in all sorts, and and that's very scientific writes the science of achievement like do you want to have more success? You create habits. Can Habits been creating a routine thirteen? You stick the routines I think that outcome and eventually you have success, right and other big believer that actually so I'm making fun of by any stretch. It is part of the. The the science of Chiba having that right so if you by the way struggled achieving things in the past, maybe because you don't have. Scientific like you just do these things and the outcome happens just magic. It! Just it just works. So there's a science of the problem though is, is it doesn't create fulfillment. Stickney for second I did a podcast about this six months ago or something. I was in I was in. I was in Puerto Rico with brand new Bouchard big. Bunch people and one of the guys there there's getting create. Clements and Craig was We're sitting there and he started talking about. Our brains where he said you know a lot of. Older. Years of getting shorter wait times flying rallies, and actually true, so the reason why is because your brain looks for patterns of the same thing happening over and over and over again deletes them. because. It's like I. don't even remember this because dude. Every single morning we do see every single week every single thing. As, we said he said so literally, your brain is deleting nothing's happening, and so your life seems shorter because it literally is shorter because those memories, it's like Hey, every morning from nine from seven ten, the same things under remember this because the same deleted, and so because you use five hours in your memory every day and see life years go faster days go faster faster and your life goes faster. He said that the problem is he's like he's like. If you. If you want to extend you, know, extend time You have to create called him event horizons! PODCAST? Talk a lot about him, but it was interesting because he's like this mastermind group in the very first year we did it. We all in Wyoming would flew helicopters shotguns. We rode horses. It was crazy right and he was like I was an event. Horizons remember that experience for the rest of my life is the second year master. Makina Puerto, Rico it was amazing. Place. It was amazing. Is this is year? Three and we're in Puerto Rico is. I can have an amazing time. Basically, the problem is is this experience is so similar to lash. Most of it's going to get deleted from my memory, and it's just GonNa be on. Our brain will just lead because it's like Oh, this is routine done. This before is like you lose that and I think he was trying to get us to do some crazy night. 'cause he's like when you criticize horizon right now and he wanted to I can't remember what the thing was. We had some crazy thing like to stick this in our brains. We don't lose moment of this experience because it's it's. It was so similar to think before and horizon, start thinking. I'm like. Oh, my Gosh, like if you think about these things, this is the union the Yang of of fulfillment half of. The are the the science of achievement in the article.
