"Keeping connected what people have lost that connection and you can recreate it even like this. I've never met you kevin. But now i see your face. I see her expression. Were having a nice conversation. We feel connected way more than we did before forty five minutes ago. That's a fact. So that even this little bit of connection goes a long way so create that connection but you have to be purposeful about it for sure and it has to be regular and consistent much like rewards and recognition if you do something on a half. Baked infrequent aren't used to that. So this working remotely requires maybe. It's a team huddle every morning for ten minutes if nothing else just to check in over teams or whatever bidet you're using maybe it's once a week at the end of friday where you have a team huddle over teams you talk about the week but it has to be purposeful. It has to be on a regular basis and consistent those are those are the ways to succeed in the future. Because i think there's going to be a lot more of this not a lot less and in fact that's one of the things we're doing it brokers internationals introducing new remote working al-aziz to provide people more opportunity to work like this but it does require different management skills and much more leadership in an environment like this but i think those are some of the ways that we can do it so i put jewish questioning up here. He says. and you've answered this in part. But i want to just call it out in the. You wanna add in answering joe here. What advice would you give to new leaders when trying to balance lead versus manage especially in the new remote world. Anything you would add to what we already said. You bet great question. Joseph number one thank you for for writing in we really appreciate it But more importantly as a new leader. I would sit down with a with mine new team and i would describe the rules for working with me or this. How do i work more. My expectations with respect communication. If i sent you a text.

"Don't have to wait for three months to hear more of these but the point is at this point in time we still got people working remotely and and so. I wanna talk about that more broadly but as it relates to this. What's your advice if the people you want to build alliances with you. Don't see in the parking lot you don't see in the coffee room you don't see in the cafeteria. What is your advice for doing that. Then yeah great. Scenario and especially now and i would say not only with alliances just with your teams. You have to make a concerted effort to reach out now. It's even more important and i would submit that today. people are probably more open and receptive to reaching out. I tell you. I think they want to reach out because they do feel somewhat isolated and lonely but making a point that once a week or once every two weeks or once a month. You're reaching out to someone in another department at you. Don't know if you don't know them at all introduce yourself and explain what you do and that you're part of the company and you just want to understand and work with them better if you do know them just reach out and say how are things going. Let me share a little of my experience with my team remotely. Is there anything that i can do to help you. Are there tips or tricks or things that we do that. I could possibly share and vice versa. Everyone loves to talk a little bit about what they do and what they do well and now is the time that i think people are very for reaching out so specifically dance your question. Kevin make it a point to reach out to those that that that you don't know or don't know well enough and they'll be very receptive right now. Took to foster in that relationship. I think last point is so important and so true like all of us are feeling some isolation. You're not the only one is feeling it. And so when an and you become the hero by being the person that reaches out to somebody else right deliverance. Man that mark's got it going on man like he reached out to. I really appreciate that. And it's not like that's in the front of their brain but that's that's a that's a win. Everybody wins again backward saying that like everyone. I believe that everyone whether they say it or show it appreciates kindness especially random acts if i sent you a card kevin for no other reason not your birthday. It's not a holiday. You receive a hand written note from me saying.

"Don't bring your into the office but you also have to be managed by someone that believes that as if you were. If you're managed by someone who believes you come in i and if you're not feeling well i'll send you home at again. Can against small examples. That again can provide a little bit of conflict in a less desirable working environment just again. Another small example of where. Your own personal values emphasized on your team can have some very big effects both positive and negative. We're talking about the author of the book lead. Don't manage here. You can see it and so mark. Another one of the areas in the book that i really liked was your chapter of out leadership alliances. I have long said that being a leader is is a pretty lonely place to be people that haven't been one or aren't one. Don't understand that let's talk about this. I love actually love this this this way of talking about it and i think it's one of the things in the book that perhaps is the most uniquely stated of anything so let's talk about why it's important what you mean by them and how we build them. Sure so i. I did get the benefit of working. A very large organization insurance company two thousand employees lots of different divisions and everyone can agree that at certain points in time you need other departments and or other leaders to help you accomplish your job so for example i worked in sales but oftentimes some of the people i was helping or servicing needed help in new business totally different department but of course i wanted to provide the solution and oftentimes me having a very good relationship with the people. Running new business granted me the ability to get things done because they liked me because i knew them as i cared about their people and their teams so sometimes it's a favor a true shoulder tap where i'm saying. Hey i'm in a pickle. I need some help in you. Help me do this. And because they liked me and because we had a relationship and because i cared about their employees and their employees knew it putting my request at the top of the stack was a huge benefit. Me super small example of how me having an alliance with someone another department allowed me to accomplish something that a different manage earn different department. Who wasn't quite as i'll say well liked could accomplish the same things i did simply because of those alliances again small example but we all know we need others to help us get work done and the more alliances you have the better off in my opinion and so what that's saying i think to us and i'm going to ask a follow up your second but what that's saying to us is that if we don't invest the time in those relationships we don't reap those benefits and in the end. Everybody is winning right. You're it's helping you but it's you. You're going i and offering help to others i and by doing that. You're creating a win for everybody. You bet you bet so as you're describing all of that. I'm sure that many are thinking about it. And whether they're watching us you know this is live near the very end of march twenty twenty one but we also know that It won't be till june until we put it out on the podcast itself by the everybody.

"Direct individual to the tune of it used to be that when my wife would come home and say hey. How does this look on me. I would tell her directly what they learned over. Time is sometimes. It's not what i say. But how i say it and so what didn't go well as my directness. A really sometimes needs to be massaged. A little bit nicer. If i'm providing feedback for example walking in and saying you're not doing a really good job probably isn't the best way to approach you. Maybe instead i could say something like hey kevin maybe you should try doing this instead of that or maybe what. What am i propose..

"I represented that company and traveled the country to agencies representing the company in convincing people to sell our products versus competitors. Yep boss forward a number of years. I'm working for a very large insurance company that owned an agency in atlanta. Which is where. I'm from and i had the opportunity to run that agency and i did that for a period of about four years when i was given another opportunity from our largest competitor. Which is the company. I run now brokers international and so for the past seven years. I have been running brokers international out of divine iowa as presidency. Oh so that's kind of a quick snapshot of how i became. I am all right. So i i wanna come back to your history in a sec but i want to dive in to the title of why we're here. Which is lead don't manage is also the title of the book so i'm gonna ask you the question that i think. Everybody has an opinion on. And i know you do. But here's the question. What's management versus leadership. Are they the same. Are they different. Which again everyone's gotta take what's your take on that. What is that. What are those words mean to you. How are they same. Hardly different great question. So i can manage my time or i can determine what i'm going to do with my time two very different things. I can manage my employees. Their comings and goings and nike. Give them a performance review. Or i can lead them to become better employees or a better division and that's really a view the the data day But the attendance of my employees maybe their workload. That's managing the employees oftentimes. I think that we forget that people look number one light to and oftentimes are required to be led somewhere and that therein lies the biggest difference. I think between managing and leading. But i'll also share with you. The biggest impetus for the book was i think. There is a lack of training both in management and leadership middle-management. Today you've become a manager because you're good at your job and you your job very well and now the department has gotten bigger. We need to add additional people in your division. And because you knew your job really well. You've got to be the manager. I think that's great but you might not know how to lead people or how to give a correct performance. Review were provide constructive feedback or challenging in a very appropriate way that they're doing to that wouldn't know if you're out. And how would you know those things if you're a good engineer. How would you know those things if you're salesperson. How could you possibly know those things right. Yeah we're in complete alignment. What you don't know mark. I also wrote a book called her. Co wrote a book called from bud bossed all about that transition right. Make that move. So there's no doubt that that's critical. So you're saying then management leadership both part of our jobs both important not the same.

Jamie Bristow Talks About Developing Agency In Urgent Times

"Our guest today is jamie bristowe jamie. Welcome to the podcast. Glad to have you here. I need to be here so we're gonna talk about a few different things today. One will be the mindfulness initiative and want to hear more about that and then in particular one of the documents that your group has recently published. But i'd like to start by just helping the audience get a little bit more understanding about you and your background with mindfulness. Okay So i've been the director of the mindfulness initiative sort of work backwards if that's okay and so i've been the director of the mindfulness initiative which is like a policy institute think tank working with politicians primarily in the uk but also around the world for getting on for six years And i've been working in the mindfulness field. I guess for a few years more than that. I was the business. Development director had space Back in the days when has faced with like seven people in five desks north in london rather than the big Sort of global brand. That has become today and previous to that. I was trying to find my way into sharing. I learnt myself huge impact. It had them how to my life. I was lucky enough to Learn to meditate. When i was a student at university so i was a fresher. Eighteen years old and didn't think much of it was just like another experience like join only different societies to try. Try out different. Things ultimate frisbee or amateur dramatics. Meditation was just like one of those things along for like. Oh wow i can. I can close my eyes radically alter my subjective experience just by applying myself that's cool And then kind of forgot about it because there were so many other exciting things to and dive into well. I knock him dipped in and out of it but it wasn't until i had my first like graduate graduated job. I was a young advertising executive. Just really going to be graded advertising and I was working on like a nissan misano. Nissan is he saying this in the states at the time like descending. suv's essentially and I was really stressful. Like i'm struggling to concentrate. The lifestyle was cheering me up to an extent and so i really at that point started to really invest in it rather than being in thing. I did now again. Became a regular practice. And i as it's been charted in the academic literature people often start for self-regulation benefit. You know for me. It was it. Was the attention thing like i needed to i. I as a kid i was. Add at the end of the spectrum so i Got myself regulation benefit. I could concentrate but then it then you know develops center from self regulation to self expiration and then like wow. There's much more to me. And to and to life. I guess than i thought that was and then moving on from that to self transcendence of because if the final of the three raises the phases. The one one paper has charted. And sure i started practicing for reasons other than myself I'm that she had the advertising world wasn't wasn't right for reasons. The myself is So i left. That world went into climate. Change campaigning And through that like realize. What a piece of mindfulness was for me in making that journey from sending. Suv's to selling responsiveness to climate climate crisis And and so yet. That's that's why. I find my way into doing what i'm doing now. Really the kind of social implications of widespread contemporary give a practices. Jimmy thank you so much for that background. And it's it's fascinating to hear different ways. Each person may find some value in this that we might be brought to it for a particular reason. Focus and then. It's oh my there's more stuff here to hearing about your time in head space. Andy putty comas. One of the first interviews. I did another pug guests many years ago before it got really really big. And so with that you've had this practice that's been part of your life that has been beneficial transformative to you and then along came in some fashion. The mindfulness initiative. How did that get started. While i was working head space at the time and i was invited by chris. Colin who's leading teacher at oxford. Mindfulness center and i'm teaching politicians in the british parliament From he and mark williams from about two thousand and his spring two thousand and thirteen a year or so later. Those who who. Who had been on a mindfulness course started to become interested in the science behind what they've found and what the policy implications might be. Because often you know when you find that it's really helping you know about is. How do i get this. You know and you reach for the most obvious thing you bring into your school or you tell you family about it but politicians that like the policy lever is like you can. How do we get this into

"I was we were introduced to actually by matthew. Sade who wrote bouncing has written a rebel. I'd is quite few popular science books so on. He thought we would be a good fit on. It's been a very interesting journey in in the sense that They've been great learning experience. So i'm what i like. Most about the book cash lease the it does in my opinion provide a nice balance between having a strong entertainment element to it because there are. There's a lot of biographical information lot of interviews with elite sports performers. So again we didn't set out release. These are the list of athletes that we know will interview economy at all. Maybe even tim surprise himself in regards to the people that we were able to get on the people at steph curry Della donne Marcus rush Pete sampras something we've probably got a good between fifty and a hundred saw some of the best athletes in the world. Some recently retired some still playing done. The way we actually worked is that I would typically draft say four five thousand words of notes around a chopped science notes Then tim more try and create a narrative through these interviews and biographical information around the sants notes. I meant we go back and forth. We let any sort of married. Couple deal tiffany in there. So you know i didn't. I was not be with the way the signs who represented and he thought that because we tweets both ways. It's not. I wouldn't say we. I wouldn't say tim rotor. We wrote it together to be honest so Because we did go back and forth on bit but certainly he had done a lotta skills which i think ameliorated the book and hopefully makes it more interesting to people on an even in the bills tend to be to the science. You know he was coming up with them with new sant's the node him and pushing it my we include this and he was maki. Probably making me look more. Broadly at the science that i would probably not have done if i was writing the book on my own On there are also pots. The book that i wrote my own. So for instance onnell chapter his on Sonson innovation in the first part of the chapter looks up bustling football club so I visited bustling December got the opportunity to meet a lot of of their staff. Aaron and and so i wrote most. Obviously tim edited provides an import so so it was a little bit back and forth but I hope my oprah's up people find it interesting but also informative and two sons one thing that i liked about it is you took the same approach that we try to take with this podcast. We present you mentioned earlier. The same the gray area. We try not to say it's all one way or the other and we liked to listen to both released present. Both sides of the argument that have been presented in the past. And you've done a great job doing that. I think even within the topics glancing through the book that you sit you the copy sent us. And the one chapter part of chapter focuses on ownership rate and how there is a obviously a ties to self determination theory right like needing to have agency and all that and it's that has always been so fascinating to me. Whether in the sport were all in the business world that that is of where you see that black and white kind of mentality that we have as humans when we don't necessarily get the science right like either. Tell people what to do or i don't have you seen it in the business world is layer godless complete. From how it was to now. It's all about employee engagement weight that didn't work..

"Clearly has got to be some combination of these two things but What proportion over is genetically. Don't what proportion of is driven by environment. I'd actually hate to put a figure on it and we do have a couple of scientists in the book are actually a will to do that. To put some indication. Ifa well because there's so many factors but i suppose my general the would be clearly not everybody can be an early athlete so there are some genetic limits potentially on this issue but having said that if you spin it around in a more positive light than what i was as far more. People have the necessary genetics to be an elite athlete than actually become an athlete. All right well still. And i'm your host kevin harris coast. Lauren ashman everybody. Welcome to the past.

I'm gotten wrong I asked Williams what's the idea behind turning the spotlight on the Yom's umpires on average make fourteen bad calls a game so that's make those instances less frequent over the summer robot umpires helped officiate minor league game the goal is not only to improve accuracy the calls but despite on behind home plate I think there's a great opportunity here as well just for fans to learn more about how it is to be an umpire the profession itself and Technology that tells you where the strike zone is and shows you the accuracy rate but yet behind home plate these umpires have to do it the old fashioned way just by human judgement and they WANNA make it free right well baseball is a game of nights and nine innings nine people in the field and I thought ninety nine cents was roughly one point six errors per inning that can dramatically impact game so it's really interesting to say will what areas are they weakest in market inefficiencies and squeeze every last bit of productivity out of their players but another issue is when an umpire gets a call wrong and Major League Baseball is trying years and I'm sure by fans that the Jacksons are occurring in part because of disputes of calls behind home plate so there is a need to improve what's going on all that can be used by major league baseball could be used by themselves really the study they're blind spots areas where they could improve that was going to ask you about the scrutiny this year was over two hundred twenty ejections it was thirty five percent greater than it was last year so there is increased frustration by players and manager how could improve it. I was GONNA ask you you of course are a finance professor this APP is it's going to cost us a book to to download former dramatically behind home plate there is no technology at all the fans when we're watching on TV or if you're livestream and you have access it up the game to get more butts in the seats Boston University professor Mark Williams thinks there's a way to use technology to make human better at their jobs before we turn the reins over to the bots he launched an APP that serves as a kind of digital baseball card for empires it's called up scores you can see how many calls have given empire has historic right proverbial emails and letters about that aren't doing the job right well the hope here is that this APP is really going to highlight those really strong ops and also give a tool vampires and how it could change the game it sounds like you think they do need more help from technology is that fair absolutely I think human collaboration with technology will improve outright it this labor of love I I don't expect to break even at all on this but I do expect to help fans and hopefully better the game through the for example some do really well in domes others not so much scrutinized to that extent where coaches are throwing red flags and asking that A strike call be reviewed well right now the Jackson rates humans make mistakes are we worried about sort of call reviews and things like that like we see in in certainly the NFL I mean our umpires going to be range of being able to jump Mark Williams developed an APP called up score grades umps and also shows us that weather conditions affect certain empires just like it does the player now for some related links Williams a red sox fan told me that he imagines one day fans will turn his into a sort of fantasy sports game so instead you know there are certain ups for example that do very well in certain parks there's certain upset do very well with certain pitchers and certain teams so the data's there drafting a shortstop and getting points when he hits a homer you'll be drafting umpires get points for their accuracy behind the plate it sounds crazy but I also thought I'd Rabin a fantasy Gulf league and if you're not into fantasy umpiring quite yet you might be interested in a different new Athens evaluates a pitcher's performance instead in all I'm doing is really creating the analytics so is mlb going to ask you if if they should be using this app they are the are the fans going to be able to sort of called pitch greater there's a piece about it on the ringer it was developed by Wayne boil a long island engineer who spent decades designing audio equipment he only at the APP to help his kid make his high school baseball team. The APP takes pitch data and tries to predict the batter's weaknesses strengths and most importantly how to exploit them after James we've got more INFO on marketplace tech dot Org and according to the trade publication baseball reference like we told you earlier baseball is trying to do what it can news in a given game last year that number was a record high four point three six that's an awful lot of time for peanuts and Cracker Jack Eight which means less money for teams but the League isn't just talking about robot arms to speed things up officials say they're discussing limiting the number of pitchers at team can to speed up the game because slower games means fewer ticket sales attendance has declined for six of the past seven seasons and fewer admissions means a lower college baseball team started using the APP it became boils new source of income he charges seventy five hundred dollars a year for amateur teams and fifteen thousand dollars a year for protein with the world series just around the corner were hearing a lot about player's stats teams have been taught to use baseball's copious amounts of data to exploit I'm a dealer and that's marketplace tech this is APN.

Cools down on Wednesday and Thursday card temperatures. Doctor in argued is right now, we have thirty two degrees. Arnold twenty eight degrees. Manchester thirty three. Coming up on the news at seven this morning unhealthy air quality in Baltimore area, stirring up more racial tensions over the weekend. If the governor Northam racist photos were not enough for you, Don lemon and his idiot savant. Chris Cuomo at fake news network have now pronounced and they were talking about this San Francisco Bay area restaurant under the decision to not serve customers and maga- hats. And the Chris Cuomo says that makes sense it's in might be interpreted as I eight black people. Okay. I mean, this is just beyond the pale and this chef at worst hall just outside San Francisco made national headlines, he recently declared his policy on social media described. The mega hats is no different than a swastika white hood or any other symbol of intolerance and hate. And so Cuomo saying how can this may any different than the Baker who refuses to make a gay wedding cake on religious grounds. I wanna fall in the drop of underselling the significance of the trigger of the expression to people. I think the more appropriate analogy to say is if people wearing shirts that say, I hate black people would that be okay to say don't come into my place with that. And I think most people would be like. Yeah. Does that make it? Okay. I think that's the right question. This is a false equivalent. This is dangerous. Don lemon. Of course is the same thing to make America. Great again hat is nothing more than that. It is a slogan of the president put out to return America to which once great standing in the world where we weren't taking it being advantage of and trade deals when we could restore our economy to its greatness we restore our country to its greatness. And that is for all people of all genders of all ethnic backgrounds wasn't selectively just for white people. And this is one of their their living in I think the state of union address tomorrow night, right? I think that every single Republican should Don a maga- hat in the president thinks is about unity. Then let's make it about unity. Everybody should wear mega tomorrow. This is right out of the pages of the democrat playbook. You know, they always go back to the our section under racism and Naven trying desperately since President Trump took the Oval Office. Connect him with racism, the fact that you know, that he didn't come out strong enough in that Charlottesville of killing. That was one thing they keep on bringing up and and and the number of other things the maga- hats now have become symbolic racism. I mean, it's just ludicrous. So yeah, the Republicans are going to have to do stuffing and stand up, but the problem is we have too many rhino Republicans too many never-trumper Republicans to begin with. It's just not the Democrats. You're absolutely right about that. And we've got. When you look at it. Have an app. This is an actual racist event with Virginia governor, and I'd seen by the way in the plaid pants in that photo because we founded another college shot. So that's him in black face in that photo. He admits to doing black faces Michael Jackson in a dance contest and code. But but again during this event while they're talking about actual racism. Here is Sherrod Brown of Ohio going after the president Charlottesville was only a symptom, and and a more public viewing and outing. If you will of the president's us about race. I mean there there there's just no question about that. We know the president doesn't tell the truth frequently. We know he lies frequently and we know of his racial battery racist comments and background. Yeah. Well, he call him a racist on national television yesterday. Here we have Ralph Norfolk who's been caught in black face presents never been caught and black presidents ever been in a photo with anybody win with black face. We had Joe Scarborough say last week he's been in in private conversations meetings and environments, the president never said anything remotely racist. And how about Hillary Clinton, you know, calling sheets bird? Robert Byrd, basically, a trusted mentor of hers you years ago. It's just incredible. It really is. All right. Six fifty coming up next state of the union address coming up at the top of the hour, the border battle continues. And you can sense. The president is all but resigned he's going to have to go another option because he knows he's called Pelosi galore rigid. Yeah. That's what I said rigid with an r.

"Mark Williams on talkradio six eighty WCBS. And now more the path show on talkradio six eighty WCBS and worldwide at wcbMcom folks, pop half year, I am honored to have Dr Dan log in here with me. Dan comes to us, by way of Morocco. Just learned all this about them. Morocco. And then Montreal and then Texas, and you've been in the DC area a lot of people refer to it as what the DMV DNV for about nineteen years you or a new father right Benjamin is what did you some almost almost three months old almost I remember the days of counting that so we're lucky to have Dr with us, Dan. So as we look at these goals eighty three percent of folks have no goals. Fourteen percent have goals in mind. They're not written down. Whatever you want our listeners to know. I mean, we could talk about I would say to you. Why do people fail and setting their goals? But if if on out there, and I'm listening to you, and I'm frustrated with what are you want people to know about goal setting? Do we break down that we we try to tackle too much? Dan, why why do people fail or don't do anything at all when it comes to goal setter? We'll tackle this cushion. I I'd like to thank you for having me on the show. We have history with Bob. He he he was actually one of the first guest panelist on my TV show in two thousand sixteen actually June fifth. And he was able to share his expertise in communication. So now, I'm honored to be here as I show in two thousand nine hundred seventy. So to go back to your question. A lot of people are just afraid to write down their goals because they know. -ccomplish accomplished. To overwhelming for them. So they want to indirectly or subconsciously. They wanna forget what schools because they're too afraid to accomplish. Because we're talking about accountability. So if I've written around on this sheet of paper damn, and I'm gonna stare at it on my refrigerator there on my Twitter. Or whatever it is. Then I'm sort of measuring my success by that I'm reminded by. But if they just sort of file it away in my head. You know, you you you leave yourself. Legroom to be able to forget about what you need to accomplish. So a lot of people are kind of like the feel more at ease knowing that their goal is looking at them in there is that's true. That's true. It said accountability. Yeah. Wow. Wow. So most people seems to me. Put this out there to you, folks. Most people really are unsuccessful mean the majority of people really accomplishing and then they abandon them. I guess right. They start in like losing weight. Let's talk about losing exercise number one year and gym memberships and treadmills are on sale. Seen the ads and then by March it when the weather gets warmer, and then we're not going to do this so much. Yeah. I mean, I'm a fitness trainer. Nineteen ninety two. And so I've seen it all and a lot of people are going to lose thirty forty pounds. Yeah. Hurry. This is something unrealistic. Is that realistic? I mean, the the healthy average is Iran wanted to pounds over the week. Okay. Now. Doesn't sound like a lot of people. And so therefore, I'm not going to do it. Then they do nothing. Yes. Exactly. And let's face it. I mean, one pound equals thirty five hundred calories. So look at it this way, if you reduce five hundred calories per day, you lose one pound a week, and that's not doing any exercise. So this pretty easy to that one pound because you bring up a good point a lot of people think and I want to wait myself. And I think we can talk about the psychology behind a lot of these things. But. And what was I going with this for a lot? It's really about the diet not the exercise because you can exercise your ass off and consume too many calories. More than you're you're gonna gain. What comes in? And what goes out what comes in and what goes up? Exactly, okay. So as part of what you do if I'm sitting down with you because I know you do coaching. Would you sit down with me and go over my diet, my meal plan the first thing, I would do okay meal plan? And then we'll see exactly your frequency of Jimmy tendons. Okay. Only are weaken warrior, isn't it? You don't get to see any results you're going to the gym like one hour on Saturday the forgettable results. But if you are consistent in which a lot of people are not not that I saw the gym. When I when I went on January second. The gym was packed. And. Off everything from thanks much. You're gonna start seeing like tumbleweed at the gym in the desert. The big problem. So you wanna be if? And you are going to focus on your goal. Your immediate goal. But here's the thing. We're going to run out of time on this with great topic that I you so much for being here. I you also have to be. So if you're my coach, you're my coach, we've got to be realistic. So on the guy that comes to you and says Dr Dan, I hate the gym. And I gotta tell you, Dan. I hated him. Okay. Don't we have to work around that? We we have to make me do something that I don't want to do that. I don't like to do. I'm probably not going to be successful doing it. Dan, isn't that fair as long as the goal is important to you? Bob love they leave. It's not going to do it. No, not at all. So as long as it's important, then you'll be able to start seeing results and for you. If you if you hate going to the gym, you could do this at home, folks, we gotta break right here. We'll be right back with Dr Dan. You're listening to the Bom paths show. Give us a call. And we're talking about goal setting. We'll be right back. Are you looking for ways to increase your sales? Motivate your team improve your relationships have become a more effective persuasive and passionate speaker tired of doing the same old things and expecting a different result..
