6 Life Areas Youre Avoiding: And 4 Ways to Face Them Head On by Ingrid Y Helander

"Six life areas you're avoiding, and for ways to face them head on by Ingrid Y Hollander of Ingrid why Hallander Ellum T. dot com? You might call avoidance being lazy unmotivated, depressed freaked out or disliking conflict. But if you are human, you probably know the warning signs when you start avoiding avoiding can become a way of life. If you're not careful robbing you of time relationship money fun and other pleasures here are few target areas and examples of voidance that I see in my office every day. Work Life. You're successful career requires consistent task completion, and suddenly you are online shopping. Crazy. Physical Health. There are two wasteful hours before you get ready for work and rather than going to the gym you roll over and go back to sleep. Relationship. Small disagreement happens and use sullenly walk away from your partner. Social. A friend's invitation weights in your inbox and you tell yourself you'll think about whether to attend or not later. Spiritual Your Yoga, Mat and journal sit in the corner and you daily pass them by. And? Financial. Six bills said in your mail pile. He said Masai knowing that a simple check could pay them tomorrow. Sound familiar. What's happening when you avoid and what can you do about it? Avoiding is seldom a fully conscious choice. Elizabeth Scott s explains this frustrating tendency. This way quote avoidance coping also known as Avoidance Coping Avoidance Behaviors and escape coping is a maladaptive form of coping that involves changing our behavior to try to avoid thinking or feeling things that are uncomfortable and quote. Basically avoidance is bitch will coping skill aimed at reducing pain that is reinforced each time you do it. Sadly. The more you avoid the parts of your life that feel uncomfortable. The more shame you're likely to feel about those parts of your life to shame intern causes more discomfort and hence more avoidance. If you tend to worry in are easily overwhelmed, it can be significantly difficult to simply face tasks and situations and do the thing before you is not your fault and is not a joking matter. Just do it is a great model for selling shoes, but it's not so easy for anxious people to implement. So. What can you do today to head on face those things in life you tend to avoid and do so without crumbling in a corner later Here four ways to face her avoidance had on. Now and very gently. Number one acknowledge avoidance without beating yourself up. So. Yes. Maybe you don't WanNa talk to your loved one about a particular topic. Perhaps you have not exercised or prayed or meditated in many moons maybe the bills are on the back burner your friends wonder if you don't like them anymore, this happens to the very best of people simply acknowledging own that part of you is avoiding with as much compassion for your human self as possible if you get very upset with yourself or anyone else in this process, stop breathe and offer yourself at least one moment of compassion. Number. To write down everything you imagine you'd like to do if you weren't avoiding. Off of the suggestion for a few reasons, some people feel like they are lazy or. When in reality, they're getting nearly everything done in fine fashion for people who are highly driven or perfectionist, but don't own this about themselves. One way of keeping on task is constantly telling yourself that you are avoiding things for others. There's so much shame beneath the surface. This exercise can help you get a glimpse of hidden pain and allow this part of you to be seen by you. Then you can access more help with a therapist to get feeling better. And finally you may just be so accustomed to avoiding that imagining moving forward in a more confident manner is a wild new concept if soul be much easier to move toward the picture that you create in your mind's eye using all of your senses so play using your imagination. For example, in my fantasy world i. Any bill, write a check and send it off. Take my wife's hand and talk it through when I feel stressed wake after eight hours of sleep hop in my Wesson and head to the gym. Just play with it. The purpose is not to make you feel guilty. This is an exercise to increase your creativity and curiosity. Let your body and mind enjoy the play and possibility of doing everything in a way you would like to do it. You may feel inspired ready to embody what you imagine or maybe the thoughts feel to threatening and cause increased. Shame. Conversely, you discover that you are in reality facing a large portion of life, but you habitually use the mantra that you are avoiding. Just notice and write down. Will you discover? Number three start with a small change in the easiest of the six targets. See found some area of avoidance and you can see how you'd like the situation to feel different. Great. Begin by choosing from your list of avoidance is just one little action. You can take thou fuel really terrific or at least good when it's done, make it one with just enough challenge to pursue but not so much challenge that it is emotionally overwhelming for you. You really want to succeed on the smaller items here. So feel free to break any task down into a smaller portion. Maybe, spend one minute meditating this week rather than entire yoga or meditation session. Perhaps, he do fifty push-ups before work. Instead of going to the gym, you could write your partner, a letter of appreciation or reply to a couple of work emails.

Lc as Khobar and our producer. John Jim Ingo. How are you guys doing today? Not to ridicule any news whatsoever about anything at all. I mean podcasting but like other like personal stuff. Well Easter was exciting. I did a drive by dinner. How while because I went to my ex this house and then because I'm not going in because they go to work and everything they brought dinner out so the kind of we set like six feet apart and they talked and I had dinner and it was weird. It was really weird. Bonnie says it's a facebook privacy thing about stream yard. They can't see your name unless you grant them permission right and I guess people just don't do it right so no or do they want in that point. A lot of them don't wanted grant permission right so but see. This is a facebook private group so we can see them in here anyhow. This isn't GonNa go. This video is not going anywhere I get it. It's not a big deal. Oh so elsie. So yes Jessica and I figured out something today that I can't believe I didn't think of this. Oh God Jessica has the adobe suite so she has adobe audition okay so one of the things. We've always had problems with his she uses quicktime and some so. She has adobe audition she can record right into addition and we've never used it in two hundred sixty four episodes. Why is that that is so card yet? Dum Dum Dum Dorky. It's Kinda Dorky. Right Kinda dark. You must have known that I've had it though right. No I wouldn't have put to do together because the thing is though just you wanted to break up with adobe suite so many separate times true and not one of the Times that. We've had a discussion about your break-up the possible break-up with adobe suite has audition ever come into the conversation that's never part of your everyday. It's just you know photoshop. Right so we use that to record her instead of quicktime and it would be so much easier and so much better and we would always know that the Mike correctly picked all the good stuff. I am so happy. Yes and we can also add to the track. We can also add compression because just could really her voice can really use compression so that you can do all of that. Pre like Yes prefixed prefixed. For her right so right now on excited like like a kid right before. Christmas. Because I'm excited because when we get off here we're going to make an appointment. We're going to go through this thing. I'm sure there'll be a lot of yelling and hollering there. Yes probably I noticed that I do have an issue when I'm trying to describe and do things when I can't see. It frustrates me when I can't see the other person's what they're doing. It frustrates me and I've been doing a lot of that lately for different clients and stuff as they set up to record in their home. Oh okay yes I need. I need to calm down. I need to be able to breathe through that. I need some kind of yoga breathing. Technique to center my Chee. Said what are you Senator Senator? Something we can just give you just can send Isaac. I can send may May and you can get through them. Then you'll find yours end. You know it's like a living. We'll be like here deal with her for a bit and then leave work through. That had four under the age of four. I know but you haven't. When was the last time? Oh well that's true. This is what I'm saying. It's like there's a practice I know when I'm in I'm in my sixties or seventies and somebody tells me how to deal with a four year five eight year old. I'm not I'm not going to be adapted. I've been like you know. Been out of it for awhile. I'm over. Yeah it's like it's forgotten like I don't even want to think about when they were infants. I don't I know Yeah No. I don't really like the idea of taking my clients and comparing them to eight year old child. I just. That's not the way it is that feeling. Oh the tenseness in the chest and the tightening in the chest he so we have some like communications. Lets say why. Don't we just acknowledge the folks and just to let everybody know that we are as of now for the past few episodes? We as in the sheep. Podcast team has been recording directly into the sea.

Healthy Disciple-Making Churches

"Does a healthy disciple making church Look like And that's we're we're GONNA talk about today and it's funny because I had a discussion with a guy On instagram awhile. Back and he was like hey kind of frustrated with where he was in his church. And he's like I've been at this church a long time but I just feel like I'm not growing. I feel like the church. Leadership is holding me back from using spiritual gifts and and Some of the things that he was kind of questioning to leave. Do I stay. And that's always a hard question to ask so I'm going to start to sing Donte. I'll tell you this is something I learned from for What's his name Tom Ranier and we went through this and we planted a church? But how do you. How do you determine what a healthy churches and then Donte you can dive in. We'll talk about not only. How do we a healthy church? But how are we a disciple making church. And what is the discipleship Look Lake In a church so I'm going to start off with just five quick things. I'll tell you when you were looking at any church have to realize that the church has one head and that head is Jesus Christ You can go go to Fiji's one twenty two twenty three or First Corinthians twelve twenty seven to see that okay number two. The church has to authorities the word of God and the Holy Spirit K.. Go to second timothy three sixteen and Seventeen or John Fourteen twenty Twenty six to see that the church has basically three servants. And I would say I would call that. You have your elders and have you deacons And you have your what they call priests which is really every believer so elders and deacons guitarist about an axe fourteen in first timothy. Another big one in Titus And then we talk about the the servant as every believer as a pre story Doer of the word to spread the Gospel in First Peter two nine. Revelations one six and fusions for eleven now we're talking about what is a healthy church look like I think there's four marks of a healthy church search you have a church that has to be self-governing and has to be self supporting. It has be self reproducing in has to be self correcting okay. And then I would say there were five functions when we look at a church and these five functions can be you can look at them from Matthew Twenty to thirty seven Also in Matthew Twenty eight eighteen in the book of acts in book two but five functions of a church we're worshiping abiding expressing love towards God were involved in evangelism vandalism were engaging region loss involved in discipleship which. We're going to talk a lot more about. That's helping believers grow into Christ's likeness in the process of sanctification and then Search health and multiplication developing sustainable. Christ centered or Chrysler communities and also reaching loss and then multiplying leaders equipping leaders leaders who can equip other leaders who then equipped leaders and multiply and so forth and so forth and loving God and people through character knowledge and practice So that's that's what I kinda lay out. And that's what I learned or the five elements of a healthy church Donte what's your take on this and I know you're GonNa talk about the Road Dumais. You may us. But what is What a scripture tells about this? Yeah I I mean we'll cover acts eleven in a moment to but like if God truly wanted the download you know to us you. What discipleship is an understanding? The Authority of the word you know two disciples after the crucifixion were saddened they were trodden and and they were walking from From you're on the Road Mayson as they're walking on the road to me at ten mile walk you know all of a sudden Jesus Jesus shows it up he hides his his identity from them and then he begins to explain to them why you know from scripture from new why we had to have Masai Y Messiah had to be crucified. Invite why the Messiah Rose again any opened their hearts you know. In a way that was less than ten miles a six mile walk ten kilometer walk to the point art work by the time they were done walking with his men their hearts were burning and understanding and and totally gravitating toward the word of God and not only the word word of God. The very word that was in front of them and not asking him to leave but to stay with them and Lo and behold before he departed Jesus at his you know he revealed old whose true identity to them and their hearts were burning for for God's true so that was a model of Jesus just showing us his awesomeness that if he just wanted us to just wake up one day and have him download discipleship and download truth and the and the understanding of the word. He could easily done that.

And the young girl is just like, you know, like that. Like they're like my daughter, you know, like they, these girls deserve deserve more.

I'm this young youth in Africa, especially girls don't deserve this, you know? And so so I'm going to find many ways. As to help them, you know, like uneven to create more awareness to this because whether it's the young women need, I think there's voices from all of us and to go back. I see this to go to visit made degree in Nigeria close to where those two hundred girls kidnapped for me. These these, I'm women's that I think we'll continue to shine bright in maybe what foundation can do and also what you kind bring people to shine light on other people to help in in some kind of way. But man, what these girls special. You know, like to hear them seeing gun, tell the stories and talk about the crafts day, like and education and all these things. I think Dr Joseph is doing a remarkable job in a word. World. Now there's leadership in place that in this country that believes that this idea of quote unquote America, I is retreating from places in the world or the United States, and others have been a beacon to to help spread awareness.

You know, like I almost I almost feel like he can run a basketball team, you know, because he knows everything about everything does going on in the game. I'm like, do you watch the game? You watch league pas every single day, you know like, but that's how he's one of those guys in this world does read knows everything about everything so and very humble about it. You know, like is not so yes, there's there's basketball discussion and and that's how leave it. You spent considerable amount of time with him, not just a summer, but going back a little bit. What I know you like to study leaders and how people approach leadership? What did you learn being around him. Weirs it impacted you and how you lead Yorgos ation and people. First of all doing, we know like what leader waned. When you go to see him, you know, like he walks out to go to come, get you, you know, like to come in, you know like that to me just say so much of a person, you know, like rather than sometimes you know them bringing somebody to you to your office, you know, like coming out and receiving people is something and he's he's such a receiving person. You know, I. He's his. He's a great listener in like listens. I think that's that's a huge thing about being position and being who he is. You know, like he could talk the whole time, but he listens to people and he to me, he just has a command of love, you know like that and the combination of being whether it's compassionate to people and speaking, he's mine very intelligently. You know, it's, he treats people so well, I think, you know, and, and there's very, it's very few people, you know, like in this world and one day while going to say as Mondello does Obama as all these, that these kind of people that just came. And I'm so blessed that I've met, you know, like a couple of them and. Never forget it, you know, and also and the way he mentors and I'd vises you know, I think it's, it's he, he almost put himself in your situation without even being without trying to be something else. You know, like he's he's unique. Yeah. I don't know how to describe this guy, but my experience you know is he's one of the most unique persons in the world and and it's a joy to know him. I need. It's a joy in the world for us to have him. I think. When Donald Trump was quoted as calling countries in Africa, shithole countries, I called you for your perspective on it, and you were really wanted. Uniquely, I think people were waiting to hear from you on it and you spoke about your reaction to that when you had gone back this summer and Africa was what Trump said about the continent and about the idea of immigrants from the continent and what that meant, how Trump feels about people from that part of the world coming to the United States was out of topic where you asked about that a lot is that become part of the conversation as you went around the continent during the month..

You know, defended LeBron as well as anybody in the league did when you think about the team, maybe especially the defensive team, you can put out there think about competing with Boston and Philadelphia. Where does he put you? You hope or excited to see, honestly, I'm so excited to see, you know, like, I'm, I don't want to be one of those that says, man, you know, like it's going to be this is going to be that you know, but I was super excited, you know, to Kyle with with g. and Pasquale and Fred and the lawn just development of all these guys.

"And if San Antonio tells Leonard and his group, we're talking with Toronto. What if they go out publicly and said, we don't want being Toronto and hamstring the possibility of deal and get the other team backs off. It's almost a no win for the team and how they handle it because you may disrupt the. A possibility of getting a deal done or the player just feels like I didn't get enough notice. You should've told me this was coming. It's a no in on on either side. You know, again, I I am. I is that you know the trading all player leaving villages is just the biggest. Is those the those are the big moments. There was the big decisions. Those are the big things that we have to deal with business and yob -solutely. Right? There's no, it's impossible because so many things we all talk about does executives and some of this things they never come about sometimes and and sometimes nothing is talked about and it's a fine line. But I think when you building a program on yet building cultural, we, we always have to be prepared for for everything. And that's what we try to do. And I say, again, we are proud into. On of what these guys did. We are proud of the five years we had. But at some point, you know, like we way we way just doing the same thing. Oklahoma City went through this last year. They traded for Paul. George, there was a belief that Paul and hate expressed it. He was likely headed to LA didn't happen. Lakers never got a meeting with them. Co is from southern California. I think the Lakers have been in the clippers the west coast has been a focus. Okay. You're you're in a similar situation. And I think sometimes people think about, well, you have a year to recruit a guy recruit them. And I think what you probably have is a year to show them who you are in what it means to play here. What it's like the player, what it's like to play with this new coach for these teammates. What our medical group is like. Because everybody else who's recruiting that player, it's a hypothetical, here's what it's going to be like they can promise lots. The advantage I guess you have in Oklahoma City had is, well, we get to show you every day. Is that. The five years plus years, you put into building Toronto. It's like, okay, we put a lot into what this environment is the culture. What we believe are the advantages of playing in Toronto, Canada, and man. We are about to test them at the highest level. There's no question you know, when teams up with in this situation, you know for me is not promising what you don't have all promising something that's, you know, you don't have a beach and you don't have is son. Yeah. Yeah. Whether we are who we are, you know, like an Iago to be prepared. I'm going to make things as as good and smooth. And I, I think you want to be genuine. You want to be real. You want to be. This is who we are. You know, like we might not be. We might not be the best ones in in weather, but we might be the best ones and many other places. And I think the diversity of the city, the the uniqueness of of a place like that, you know fans, the atmosphere. I think those things are so unique and means it beginning to show 'em. Everywhere that this place is is is a little unique, and then you have to put the basketball together and maybe before the basketball was in a pod of it. But I know there's a part of him that I'm sure things that this team has a chance and his teammates and seeing how hard these guys are working. And I think that's we have to show who am really, there's no, there's no fakes l. job here, you know, like. This is this is what it what it is. You know them and hopefully we have a good year and and we can. We come prepare well coli and people in San Antonio talk about this and he was young younger man at the time that you know, even his teammates and his coach talk about it was not easy to get to know him. He's very private says times very little, but you know, Dunkin pop different times with joke about, yeah, we I didn't. I didn't not hurt his voice until well into it..

"To podcasts every Saturday morning as the puny embark on a new adventure. The anger. I think there was a combination of maybe shock and anger, frustration, the uncertainty that the mar- hat of the deal and where he was going and what it all meant. Obviously loved Toronto. He had stabbed he was part of your community there beyond the foundation was the team. You said at the press conference, hey, I apologize for miscommunication or miss. Don't think you ever apologized for saying, hey, I told you, you weren't gonna be traded, and then I did. That's not what you said. And I don't know that that's how you viewed it. He was upset. He led people to believe you had misled him. What were you apologizing for? What were you when you look back and said, was there something you had made clear or was in bigamous or now that you look back on it? Was there anything you could have done differently. I apologize. You know, for the simple apology should be, you know, for trading damore. Yeah, that's that's what it should be. You know, like because there's no way there's nothing doing in this kind of situations, you know that that the person is going to be happy about it. You know, like there's, there's nothing that dining with Isaiah or myself with damore all Chicago with Jimmy Butler. We Jimmy Butler, you know, or if you want to look at it the other way, you know Gordon Haywood with. Utah, Utah. The Braun with Miami all. There's nothing you know like that and the other side is going to feel good about, yeah, that's the honest truth, you know, like, let's let's all call us betas paid, you know, like, so it doesn't matter what the company Keisha was or how you know like what led up to it or whatever. You know. Yeah, maybe that things we could, we could do better, you know. But at the end of the day, sometimes these things might not happen what you do when they don't happen. You know, like if the trade doesn't happen or like, how do you how, how, how do you do? And that's the tough parts of our jobs, you know, and and we have to figure that the best way to deal with that and demain is unbelievable for for the city of Toronto and. And I know I appreciate everything the kid did, you know, and has done and he'll be a Huby celebrated bigger. I know that as long as I'm a part of it and I know even when I'm not a part of it, you'll be is going to be that way. So the simple apologies I traded him, you know, and and we traded him. And I think the hard part I think for on the team side is this, I'm not trading you until I've traded you. Right? And you can talk and teams are going to have a lot of conversations about guys. There's probably three or four guys in a league who really are probably never really in trade talks, and that might be too many outside of anybody who doesn't have a no trade, and even those who have no trade can still be talked into that as an organization, you have to be open to everything and ninety nine point, nine percent of conversations. You have never lead anything. So when. Layer says to you three weeks before the trade happens. Are you trading me? I don't have anything for your here. Let's talk about Nick season. It seemed like maybe in Vegas when you met with him. And I think I think there was a perception that there was a big sit down meeting and I don't know that it was all that it was just the conversation may be in a building, but that's maybe the tougher part for team executive is to say, if I told the player or as agent every single time that his name came up with the team, you would be paralyzed by like they don't need to know, and you're also putting organization at risk because if a guy clippers kind of went through this right, a little bit with Blake Griffin, you know, like they told him at the end and they were doing a trait..

"You know, you were in the middle there in the middle. You've done all that. You've done a lot of trades in your career that it make it even. I say complicated, but more it was less conventional for you to get this thing done while you were across the world trying to tie up all the ends and communicate people you had to communicate with not at all. Not at all. It was famille was straightforward, and the phone is a powerful machine. You know, it's it's the most unbelievable machine, you know, like that you can. You can ever think of. And I want to say that and I have a remarkable staff and Bobbi Webster dentals mine Theresa. We always on the clock, you know. And I think Bobby did an excellent job with this, but you have to, you have to figure out, you know how to how to read this is, but the level of in the level of communication as as in a trade, and you know you get a sense, you get a sense of where it is with the other team. You have to read that. And for me, that's that's job and way you don't get the sense of danger or you don't get the sense of urgency, or sometimes you know, one team is in control or another team is the other team is in control. So also helps with relationships have great relationship with with with our see and got tougher times, you know, and those conversations are tough when you're negotiating. But the understanding is, I think, is straightforward and so lived everywhere in the world all around the walls. I knew all the same thing to me when you and are CR talking through this trade. You said you have a very good relationship with a person. I think that transcends professionally as a personal relationship. How much did you feel like you needed to ask questions and understand what had happened there from his perspective as you're trying to gather information to make decisions? What happened in San Antonio, what led to him being available? Did you ask those questions of him, or did you just negotiate the terms of trade you have to do both. And sometimes if it's it's the circumstance, you know, that leads you to do both. And sometimes you start gathering information and it leads you to a question that you have to ask the other person, and sometimes those conversations better, Wendy's, a good relationship, or they are easier maybe when there's a good relationship, but. Negotiations always tough, especially those kind of levels. You know, it's, it's, it's tough conversations and Miano see how tough ones you know and they are. They are part of the business and you go about them as professional as you can be and you both try to with with trading too, you have to. It's always good when both feel comfortable, you know, like both field. Good good about it. And that's where it ended. The conversation is you guys got down the road and you get an agreement in place. I think you was late the morning late the night before the traders finalize in the morning. When you guys were going to alert everybody in the deal they had been traded. You're gonna get on a trade call. You call Dhamar head of that. His agent ahead of that and essentially told him what at that point. I told them that. An agreement had been reached, and this is this is what was going to happen. It's a, it's a tough conversation to have and. Especially on the other side, you know? And sometimes you wish these conversations can even happen face to face, but they're just tough conversations to have. You know, like nobody wants to hear that they've been traded. You know, I, I don't think it's, it's, it's, it's. It's something they know also nobody on our side. We don't want to hear that all the players all I'm leaving, you know, like so this parts of the business, either.

"We'll he resigned with us a free agent next year. Was that risk greater than I just got swept by Cleveland. I don't think we're good enough. Was it a bigger risk to stamp Pat at the end of the day wards the the goal is championship and honestly, like if you're trying to win in the NBA and just be just be ordinary unstained the league, you know, like I think everybody can do that. You know, jobs are not that hard to be honest. You know, like I, I would, I would think put teams together and make the playoffs. I don't know that it's for me. I feel that every everybody's gold thirty teams is to win a championship and but but it isn't. There's a lot of places where like you can say at your goal, but what's the commitment you looking? Well, there's a lot of places that goal is to get one more contract as GM or can I just get in the playoffs? And I met decisions about. Going, you wanna work for. I think it's not realistic in a lot of places, and I think you've decided Israel is to control to championship team. Yeah, I disagree. I agree. I think you know these thirty teams one to win the, I think they want to win championships. We have to prepare. We have to. We have to figure it out, you know, like it's odd jobs to to do that. And sometimes that's that's taking risks. You know, like we have to be willing to do that. I think that's the challenge of the job on as I say. At some point you have to put yourself out there, you know, and and honestly, like there's there's no reason to be afraid of that, you know, like in my heart, I know that have done well by by these people, and that's the human part that I don't like. But in terms of preparation, risk, taking determination, the passion to Gwen figure out how to win a championship. Well, how many instances are we going to chances? Are we going to have to to get a play that level? And that's why talking about that and we wait those chances of getting a player. That's the caliber of Leonard, then, yes, the risks of injury there is of does e one to stay. We have to prepare. We have to those things to me. You want them to happen organically, and he has to come on and see your situation and you have to, you have to lay the bed wealth for him. And so what confidence you know, like in in your way, if you're not confident on, you start questioning yourself, then you're not going anywhere. And that's what we said we were going to do when we came here. Five years ago is when all go into question our selves while going to keep trying to rise, unlock going to believe in ourselves. And that's what we've told our fans, and we're going to believe in our city. We're going to believe in basketball while going to believe in everything culture on what, what, what, what trying to do. So yeah, there's those risks, but that's the tough part of this. And one other freight of that, the twenty four hours leading into the agreement on the trade. You were out of the country. You're an Africa in Kenya in Kenya, and you think were a very long flight. You left the country. You were getting down the road with the Spurs on a deal. Was there a party that said, do I get on this plane? Should I stay here? Can I because you don't like just practically being able to be, you can be in communication from anywhere, but those hours of being on the plane and then being in Kenya and the clocks were way off from you in our see in Texas..

"It's a, it's, it's, it's one of those that I have to even start by with answering answering this by saying what remarkable partners doing Casey on damore were, and it is the most difficult part of the business, the human aspect of it. And when you build this things for a full, all these all these years, you try to build a culture. You try to build family environment. Listen, what would the most difficult part of business? You know, sometimes not said, you know is is two things you know, like trades and when a player leaves those, those. Those are the two. I think most difficult parts of our business where we we have to. I think everybody goes through a really tough. Time because you've built this relationships days? No, no matter how any human being is. There's no pretends you know. And so those five years west strong, but we, we had done the same thing for over and over again. And I think it was time to for change. It was time to disrupt a little bit and and you don't want to even create more pressure for them in my opinion, because next year everybody being looking at, oh, the same thing is going to is going to happen again. So that was difficult. You know, like to start? Yeah. You look at your team open, Leon. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Open to call unto ideas on you have ideas, team has ideas, but those decisions are really, really difficult. I will say this to that. I'm also proud of what the opportunities outweigh given because when you first take. A job. I, I hate to call it out like this, but most guys, you know, like have their own guys. You know, like what the team, they shape the team, and I think we will open minded you now a regime that to keep coach Casey to to go with the mar- Kyle, these guys on and figure out a way to build even around them. And so if I look, I'd Wellman he made a change. I, as he came if I look at. Yeah, you know, Landau if I look, I'd Scott berry. He made a change soon. Now if I look at the last five guys, they've made a change right away. If I look at them, each Cup jockey made a change. If I look at Detroit, they made a change right away. So that's that's the nature of the business. Almost I a lot of times. And so while proud of the opportunity at least you know, like, and then why really proud of the moments that they gave us and so leading up to this, it wasn't a easy decision and Wayne, these things start to start to come about. You really have to prepare. Yeah. I mean, you have to talk about them as an organization. You have to. You have to be a visionary of to see, and we felt that we had done this for a long time and where we doing the same thing over and over again. And so when this opportunity came about and Bobby started talking to. Webster Bobbi Webster talking to Brian, and and then I started talking to our c- it's it's it's like every every trade you know, like you talk about this things for for some time, and then it breaks down and it's not serious and he goes to to different levels and and then it came time when it seemed like it got to a level where what's going, it was going to be executed. And that's how we we help into our chance to to get a player like Kawai Leonard beside when you were measuring risk almost every day it's risk reward was the risk or measuring? Well, number one is quite healthy. Is he going to be the player that we've saw all NBA MVP candidate, maybe the best two way player in the league? Will he stay with us?.

But this summer for the raptors this off season, unlike any you've had, I imagine, you know, you went through it in Denver with Carmelo, Anthony, and that trade right. When you walked into the job, you made one of the biggest decisions of your career defining decision for the Denver organization for you as young executive in the league right off the bat, you walked into it. The quiet Leonard trade was years in the making in the sense that you had gone down the road with and had a lot of success with the Marta rose in calorie. This core that took the raptors too high. It's the organization has never been. And then in one summer, the coach greatest coaching raptors history doing Casey NBA coach of the year, you fire him and your franchise player.

Those are not easy decisions and they take a lot of deliberation, but the Rosen Kawhi trade the conversations leading into it with San Antonio. Think you guys at my sense was you're on the periphery of that for a while and they went down the road with other places and Saul what the offers were out there. And in the end, the offer from the raptors I, I don't think they had anything that fulfilled a need they wanted, which was they wanted to stay relevant and they got an all star player and Dhamar.

Now, you know, you see, you see and hear, and, and that's the height of it, you know, and but does being traveling around the world and especially during the summer to see like the following the NBA, it's remarkable. I didn't think that in my other, maybe in my lifetime, but maybe not in the course of my career, what I see the NBA. At the very least maybe shoulder to shoulder with the NFL. I don't know. There's a lot different ways you can measure it about where it is. And TV ratings might say, one thing in revenue, but we're seeing now like, and I think Adam silver said this when they did the last collective bargaining agreement like, hey, like we should be doing both sides. Say our goal should be getting together and let's together players association le- let's together go after the NFL and I was like, that's a nice thought. But boy, it's kind of getting there. It's it's. It's really interesting though. I think I think I'd been a remarkable leader, mild Pinon and he's even seeing the relationship with the players association. And you know with Michelle, I think it's been nor the way can go forward and they've seen away that, you know, they might disagree on some things, but the best way to do. Things is is to. Work really well together and and put these ideas on the table and be open minded and and be visionaries. And I think they've done that remarkably well and with the NBA there's something unique about seeing these players up close. I think you know, like on your screen on your handset phone. No masks, no helmets. Maybe I can even go as far as saying baseball and soccer football. It's further away are further away on the field. You know, like this is seen these players up close and you feel it, I feel and there's so much more personable if you if you if you will. I, I love it. I, I love that art game is now way I need showing around the world's become such a global sport. Yeah, and I wanna talk about that today and the work you do globally in Africa, you spend lots of time in Europe to you're. You're not. I always feel like you're on some fifteen hour flight somewhere. There's times you'll say, hey, I'm getting on a flight and it's like it's never like Toronto to Cleveland or trying to New York, like very often. It's Toronto which side of the world is a little shorter. Go across. Right? Like you're, you're scouting in Europe and and then you've done a lot..

"I'm Chris Watson, Awad lodge, sound recordist an invest series. I'll be taking you on a journey in sound will be tuning into the sounds of four very different global habitats. The planes, the desert, the mountain and the forest and exploring the relationships between these soundscape the wildlife and people. We're beginning this program with the planes and most Pacific ly- the great savannah wilderness of the Maasai Mara in south western Kenya, Africa. It was here that I, I met the conservation conservationist SABA, Douglas Hamilton who was born and brought up in the great Rift Valley. SABA was just six weeks old when she met her first wild animal, and it was an elephants one of the four hundred which are farther the conservationist Iain Douglas Hamilton was studying. So from a very young age, SABA has been aware of the sounds of this landscape. Much more active early in the morning because it's cool. That's when you hear them sniffling around. I often wake up at night where I live now, and I can hear this funny little. As a pokey pine that comes in investigates around my tent and every now and then I'll see him walking along lit up in the moonlight. Absolutely enchanting because you never see porcupines really, but to have them when they're so relaxed and just doing nothing around in. You could hear that funny shuffle and shake as he's moving around. When you get up in the morning and always you look up into the east and the morning, light rays shine two of the grassland onto yourself. You say many you're until on which led the race of a sun, send us the blessings of the day. So actually it is if you think about it, the race of the morning, those raise it hit into the grass and into the human. It is a blessing Embiid. This is Jackson looser. Jackson was my guide in the Masai Mara. He was born and brought up here and will discover later. Jackson uses sound to read the landscape. For example, to identify if there's a predator nearby, like Jackson Sabah has also learned to listen to the changing, sounds around her. I mean, certainly north Kenya where I am now, the middle of the day is very much marked by the singing of hornbills. Sit up on the tops of the trees, mixed feathers new funny sort of territorial displays. What. And the pied Wachtel. Now, looking for the friends, what you know, these look in different places now, right in the rocks there. The Mets won their here. Yeah, that would be applied. Dot com. Number that hear down below. The twentieth premia. The landscape of these wide grassy plains is mostly flat with mosaic patterns of Casey. Woodland's rocky outcrops and shallow Gorges..
