Beyond the Language Wars: R & Python for the Modern Data Scientist

"Can you describe the set of events that led to our by thon becoming the primary data science today and how this translates into what we call the language war between armed by phone and something that we talked about ready to very beginning of the book is kind of a little bit unusual that we will begin a book on unarmed python by giving this whole history of languages. But i want to that way because i thought that it's important to help you understand the cranks and how we got to where we are and so one of the first questions be blast when they're trying to decide. I learn our show. I learnt python is. What's the difference between aren't python and you'll see a lot of post on stack overflow or different a message. Boards rented where people talk about What are the basic differences between these languages in wash use one versus the other and nobody comes to a clear consensus or a clear. Understanding the differences tried to do in the first chapter is just outline the history of the which is to give an idea about the different ethel's and how things work differently between the two languages so so are was there kind of at the very beginning of scientific computing in academia in the late seventies early eighties in bell. Laboratories was really developed as a programming language for doucet's analysis and within the book i call it a fubu language so who is a street where clothing company from new york. That I used to love when i was a teenager. And is it stands for four as by us. And i like this forest by his attitude is very much a four the community by the community. Kind kind of those in this very much. What are is right is forced decisions by statisticians in. It's just meant to just get statistics that get dot announces his work with down and just just get it done into program language in his own right. But it's first and foremost used for doing that. Analysis and that really shaped all of what kim afterwards in r. and python kind comes from a different direction python originated as a generalist polka me language to make just entry into programming easier with a nice syntax and An easier access to managing all kinds of different tools and system administration and building applications and web development so e cat. It's fingers everywhere. Generalist programming language and then came. That assigns later on so python. Wasn't that a science. I and programming second was kind of the other way

How to Use Job Search Sites To Your Advantage

"I got to ask this question a lot when i launched my book a few months ago. And what a pass this question onto you. Obviously you wrote a lot of chapters. And i'm sure you love each one of them for different reasons. But what's one chapter in the book that really stands out to you and for what reason it's really the first chapter because it's my number one piece of advice because it's the fundamental thing people do not understand about the modern job market which is at this point seventy five percent or more of the resumes that are submitted as applications for jobs are read by software before they are read by human and the only mission of your resume is to get past that software filter so that an actual human will look at it. That's it so now you're not writing resumes anymore for people you're writing them for robots and i explained to exactly what that means. What the changes are you need to make to your resume so that you popped to the top because it's now more important that the software be able to interpolate the information that you're providing to determine whether or not you're a candidate that should be handed to a human because that's the only way you're gonna get real consideration for a job. I mean fire nation. This one piece of advice could literally change the game for you on your next application because you'll be one of those few individuals that gets by the quote unquote robots and the ai to an actual human being so one thing that you do claim. Ian is that these so-called conventional wisdom of job search. It just no longer applies so above and beyond what you just shared. What have been the absolute biggest changes in job search. A lot of the conventional wisdom starts with the resume which we were just talking about. The advice. You got was things like Us a really unique style. So that when someone's sifting through a pile of resumes your resume pops Dress up your accomplishments use grandiose descriptions of the things you did. You didn't answer the telephone at the front desk. You were in charge of company communications. All of that is terrible advice because again there is some robot out there that is just trying to boil down exactly who you are and what you can do and the more you try to be special the more you use a non standard design a nonstandard font or or language that doesn't explicitly and directly. Describe what you did the more you confuse the robot. The robots are not very good at their job so the only way to help them to keep everything dead simple and if you're worried that when it gets passed that robot filter and in front of a human that they're gonna look at it and think that you're a simple person Let me allay those for those fears. The average resume has looked at for less than seven

Action First, Learn Later

"Action i learned later means that you take action from a trusted source. Then you come back later to learn more about the strategies and the logic behind the action. This is going to help. You refine the knowledge that you gained and the lessons that you learned while taking that action now. This idea came to me while i was reading a new book by steven are gunnery. Md and the book is called the energy paradox. The intro in the first chapter they were twenty three pages long and by the end of chapter one i realized he was going to give a ton of scientific reasons rationale dive into the literature behind his program that he created right now. The explanation of his energy paradox eating program that starting on page one sixty seven. I just finished as twenty three. I was going to have to read one hundred and forty four more pages before i get to the actual program right. I did not want to wait that long. Because i mean if you're anything like me oftentimes Fiction books i love. I get i dive into the story. Loved the characters. I love the plot. I just read read read. I can read one hundred pages in a day of great fiction book easily but nonfiction sometimes can be a slog. And if it's full of like medical jargon and scientific discoveries and and whatever else he talks about in those first pages man it might take me. I don't know one hundred forty four more days ten pages day fourteen more days before i actually get to the program. Screw that right. So i skipped a page one sixty seven and i started the program on day one when i picked up the book. And let me tell you. I could not be happier with the process right taking action. I it got me eating healthier right away. The whole ideas like why wait right. I trusted that. The author dr steven our country. Md that the program that he wrote would not hurt me and if he put anything in the program that seemed dangerous. I could totally just skip it right so nothing ended up being dangerous but just ahead of time if you're taking action and something seems funky and uninteresting. Maybe you're just like it won't help then. Just don't do it. I can you could easily choose to not do something. But for me. And this book taking action before learning about the benefits was total no-brainer.

'Gould's Book of Fish' Book Review

"Welcome memo lights to another round of the book views. My name is karna. I'm here to bring you the book reviews to help you. Transcend beyond your mere mortality. This is the end of the book month in today. I have for you my final book. It is the goads book of fish by richard flanagan. This book was published in two thousand and one so a bit more recently. And it's about four hundred fifty pages. In length it tells the tale of william buelow gold. Who was an english convict transported to. Tasmania also known as van demons. Land at the time and who becomes enamored with fishes. It's narrated by the aforementioned billy gold. Although the first chapter is a sort of discovery of this book of fishes and then a recreation of the book of fishes so sort of book within a book type tribe. We've seen this multiple times before. It starts off with billy gold in england and then making some decisions as being an artist and he has almost forced into the autistic type of world before. Doing some silly things gets transported into. Ben demons land. Tasmania and then more silly. Things occur and essentially sentenced to convict. Life says torches as imprisoning says beatings. All of these bad things happening to him. He tries to make his own life better through his autistic shoots and his entangled with some other characters in the book as such as the surgeon. Who is the one who gets them. Started on this book of fish this fascination of fishes and then towards the end of the novel he escapes. His confines. Goes on a journey gets recaptured. And then as almost put to death before being transformed into a fish of all things. Most of the action takes place on sarah's island which is an actual penal colony which is an actual jail where they would send convicts to do hard work and actually became a shipbuilding place as well. The island itself is tiny couple hundred meters in length and less that in with as well and the era it was set in the eighteen. Twenty s to the eighteen thirties. I believe so. This is when some technologies would just getting invented but it was still really berbar in sort of world a very brutal hosh

What Will the Future for Gods People Be

"People have been wondering about the future for a long time as of right now. There are some projections being made in the romance department. There's some people who are thinking that within the next few generations perhaps within the lifetime of some people who are here this afternoon we are going to have some people say to us. I have fallen in love with a robot. I am going to get married to a robot. My nets mate is going to the a robot if our society ever gets to that time. They're going to be some very interesting questions for example could be married to more than one robot at a time. If you destroy the rowbotham chamaere to would that be criminal. Offense could a robotic partner testify against you in a quarter of wall. And if you don't like your robot after the first year could you reprogram. Our world is an interesting and sometimes it is a very unnerving place because of the future our spiritual life as we think about it. It has a past component that we've looked at it has a president component. And now as we think about the spiritual part of who are also has a future component. Let's take a look at that first. Chapter fifteen verse. Forty nine paul and talking about what we have right now in the president he says we have borne the image of the earthly. He says though that a time is coming when we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Well we think about adam looking back for example to the book of genesis and get some information about him. We know that adam was created from the rest of the year was the first man. Adam did not gradually evolve. He did not come from some cesspool and over millions of years. Finally show up day. The body that adam had is largely the bottom the body that we have maybe had more hair and so forth but tom on his head but he had an arm in arms and legs and he had ribs and the things that we have. We think about adam's wife she of course was eve and her shape largely remember resemble better bre husband just as we see today as we look around at people in our world

"Ties julie. Thank you so much for. Coming to the podcast. Oh jonathan my absolute pleasure to be here. Thank you for inviting me. I found out about your book. Your book has been out for more than a year. Now right no. It came out the end of january this year. Oh the end of january. This year. Because i got an email from rancher now who is the pulitzer prize winning author of biographies on alexander. Hamilton george washington. The latest one grant and He sent me an email and he said you must read. You must read robert e lee and me by ties egeli. You have to read it It is right up your alley. And i'm so glad he recommended it and i'm so glad i read it because it truly is something i've been dying to read and that is a white southerner taking on race racism but most importantly the myth of the lost cause And so how about we. Just start right at the beginning. Who were you when you were a young kid. Growing up in virginia. Who did you want to model your life after jonathan i. It's crazy to say it. But i wanted to be like robert e lee and i did. My first. chapter book was about robert e lee. My dad taught at a school in northern virginia. Where the descendants of robert e lee were He was the ultimate virginia. Gentlemen and educated christian gentleman and everything in my life in alexandria led me to believe that he was that he was this great person. If it's like that old movie Spinal tap on a scale of one to ten. I would have said lee was in eleven you know and even though i was a good episcopalian went to church every sunday. I was ahead. Acolyte later in high school i would have jesus in the four five six range so it wasn't as though is that i saw lee as good i it was reverential.

Mark Levin Explains Why Liberals Hate America

"And when you have demagogues Fanatical demagogues. You can attract a fanatical following Because people want to follow leaders. You also have people who want to belong to groups. They're not comfortable in their own skin. They're not comfortable in their own. A situation I should say. And so they They want to join groups. They want to join groups so they might join Marxist groups. Who knows? And then you have the leaders of these groups. Who are who are some of them can be quite evil. Or manipulative. Or whatever the case may be. They want control. They want power. It is a form of it's an aphrodisiac for them. And so you have a combination of these things, but They view themselves as the oppressed and the victims and they have to destroy the existing society, successful people who demonstrate that the society can function Particularly minorities who worked their way up from the bottom. They have to be dismissed and they are dismissed as whole. They're just part of this group over here. Because they're not down for the revolution. So if you take a look at my first chapter, Romerito P. I kind of lay it out a little bit more detail than this, But I think that's what's going on notice when you hear about and he never talks up the country. He talks about what he's done. Notice. The Democrat Party never embraces Americanism. It is a constant Constant, relentless fight. To destroy economic system to destroy our institutions to control the minds of the American people and our Children. They don't want to adjust things sort of address injustices or whatever it is. They want to seek and destroy. They want to burn things

"one chapter" Discussed on The Design of Business - The Business of Design

"Thank you so much for this conversation trees. Thank you thank you so much for. Having i was very taken by a remark that non made which is that. She said that she had more experience in the service industry that you did as designer what what was your take on that. Yeah that hit my ear to and what a tragedy that is when you think about that. Like all the door dash delivery drivers all of the bar bax and all of these people who are doing noble service jobs who have higher callings and we can't find them and we can't reach them and they can't spend that time financing whatever. They need to finance and move on quickly. So it struck me to as publishing industry's changing a lot. The old guard is being challenged. We have A real diversity. Problem at every level including all of the publications that i've worked for and they are they. Are they feel intractable. They are not moving. It's not moving fast enough. And that means that the media in general is not seeing the world as it actually is not covering the world as it actually is. It's a real emergency and there have been real labor issues Union organizing at all kinds of publications and houses including my own publication. So i heard her say that. I'm thinking you know. Thank god. You're in the room. Because i know what happens when someone with her imagination and energy and excellence is in the room they represent but the the double duty that a person like nah or myself or lots of our listeners out there have to do by not only being excellent what they need to do but being culture shapers being the people who are asking the questions and nudging people along and challenging some fundamental ideas that dominant culture always has has. This is the white ready to do things. This is the elegant way. This is the only way forward. That's a lot on People's plates so. I'm rooting for us. She goes forward because just being there makes a difference but at the end she talks about how she is helping people that work for her. She's giving them confidence and how she is setting them up for success which is a really touching lovely piece of the narrative. Well and that that's new to you. Know she's not sitting at the top of the food chain opening doors at the bottom. She is one chapter ahead of the class. And she's making sure that people get her take if they need that. She's reviewing portfolios. She sharing advice tips and tactics. It is a peer to peer support. Dynamic. so really what. We're learning here is that you can't challenge and icon by becoming one yourself. You challenge an icon by challenge the idea of an icon.

The Importance of Self-Awareness Within Self-Care With Alex Elle

"I so love the way that you complicate this idea of self care and the fact that you name self awareness has being such a key component. Because you're right about that in your book after the rain that like your flawed like we all are right and you're learning hard lessons that needed to be learned but a lot of it was from not being self aware of who you were and your actions at the time And using that as an excuse to not learn to do better right. So i talk about that. Aladdin after the rain in the first chapter called change. Which is everyone's favorite chapter. I talk about like transitioning from working a nine to five nine years ago now to being in my career to how much up. I was an awful employees at one point to how i stepped into like really being a great employee and then faced some really challenging issues with my then boss and it really shows the duality of self awareness from grown from and where i was going And i think change plays a big role in my life. Because i've had to change so much and i've gotten really comfortable with being more okay with change and with learning that i always have worked to do and i think that's part of being a student of life is knowing that we will continue to expand and hopefully learn and grow until you know the day we transition off this planet and i think that that's extremely valuable and important especially as a black woman in this work in this

If the kind that novels a good fool i bring them all back for the rest of the book and weekends the lives they would have should have might have had instead because they missed of course was the hold of the rest of the twentieth century and every enormous and extraordinary change that boot to the city of london. So it's a novel about london. It's a novel about life and death and the fragility of life and it's a novel about time.

"Ties. Thank you so much for. Coming to the podcast. Oh jonathan my absolute pleasure to be here. Thank you for inviting me. I found out about your book. Your book has been out for more than a year now. Right no came out the end of january this year. Oh the end of january this year. Because i got an email from rancher now who is the pulitzer prize winning author of biographies on alexander. Hamilton george washington and the latest one grant and He sent me an email and he said you must read. You must read robert l. e. and me by ties sicily. You have to read it It is right up your alley. And i'm so glad he recommended it and i'm so glad i read it because it truly is something i've been dying to read and that is a white southerner taking on race racism but most importantly the myth of the lost cause and so how about we. Just start right at the beginning. Who were you when you were a young kid. Growing up in virginia. Who did you want to model your life after jonathan. It's crazy to say it. But i wanted to be like robert e lee and i did. My first. chapter book was about robert e lee. My dad taught at a school in northern virginia. Where the descendants of robert louis were He was the ultimate virginia. Gentlemen a an educated christian gentlemen and everything in my life in alexandria that he was that he was this. Great person. if you know. It's like that old movie Spinal tap you know. On a scale of one to ten. I would have said lee was an eleven and even though i was a good episcopalian went to church every sunday. I was ahead. Acolyte later in high school i would have thought jesus in the four five six range so it wasn't as though it wasn't so that i saw lee as good i it was reverential.

"Fellow. Risk-takers this your worst. Podcast hosts andrew stotz. And i'm here with featured guest. Eric su to rock. I'm ready to rock. Thanks for having me andrew. I'm glad to have you on the show. And in fact i went to cal state long beach so i used to be in the la area for a long time so it's good to reconnect with lovely l. a. What i used to call the center of the universe at that time. So let me introduce you to the audience for those people. That don't know eric. He is the ceo of content intelligence software. click flow. Which helps you grow your traffic while looking like a genius and who doesn't want that also owns an ad agency single grain and work with companies such as amazon airbnb salesforce and uber to acquire more customers. He hosts to podcasts. Marketing school with neil patel and leveling up which combined have over forty eight million downloads to date. He's also frequently around the world of marketing and software as a service and he's recently publishing a book called leveling up. And i happen to tell you. Eric doesn't know this. But i've managed to get an inside person to give me the first copy of the book. Let me find it and there. It is whoa. They sent it to you know. Just kidding i made myself. I made included on a little book that i had. But that's what it's going to look like folks and it's called up and right now you can get chapter number one which i've been through and i'm really excited. So maybe you can just tell the audience a little bit about yourself and what they're gonna get from this book and what they could do now to get some of that in wednesday coming out all. Here's the fiscal copy. Here's what is gonna look like boom. This is what it looks like. It's coming out february. Twenty four th. But my name's eric su. So you know to your point couple of businesses. I kind of my go-to level at the world through marketing. So the business you mentioned but we also have any events business. We have an education business and we also invest other mar related sass and to podcasts. You mentioned i just love learning. I love teaching to articulate my thoughts. And i'm here on this podcast to talk about my worst investment. I think there's a there's a theme here. I'll try to tie everything together without me too. Wordy that's great. You know it's interesting. Because when i read through the first chapter and also i'm a listener of your podcast. Both of them. What i get from us that we come from a slightly different generation. Let's say i graduated from university and cal state long beach in nineteen eighty nine. And i didn't really. I wasn't in the gaming realm at the time and i wasn't when it started really hit. I wasn't that interested in it. So what i notice about about you. And i suspect that this is what people were going to get out of the book instead. You focus on some really short actionable things and it's feel like whether it's your podcasts. Or when i read your book. It is a lot about getting to that next level in little steps. And that's the way i was brought up. I was born with heavy big content redes- whole book and then tell me what you learn. Is that correct to think of it that way. Or how do you think how does your mind. Yeah it's so. I have this turtle in front of me and i got from puerto rico and i visited puerto rico for obvious reasons but it reminds me to slow down and to understand that you leveling up one percent everyday just trying to get a little better every single day. That's what it's all about because if you think of decades that be results in decades you'll be amazed by what you accomplished and you have short term hustle and long-term outlook. It's the same thing as investing at the end of the day. So i think it's You know. I'm glad that you noticed that we'll actually never thought of it that way but yeah that's exactly what it is. Yeah in fact before we get into the question. I just quote one thing out of the book and that is you say just because you have struggled in pass does not mean you're entitled anything to play at the next level you'll have a new set of struggles and that's something that really hit me because first of all at the age of fifty five. Life's supposed to be good and easy and all that no no. There's still struggles that you gotta face. That's the first thing. But the second thing that i took away from that this again this kind of incremental way that you look at things focus on the struggles in that one little level and there's always going to be those new struggles so that's a big thing that i've taken away from it. I'm looking forward to getting to the whole book someday. I'll have it by the way. Like i noticed a little warm buffet character in the back. I think that's what it is and so if you think about it. Eighty four point. So i think he's worth eighty five billion eighty. Four of that didn't come until after his sixty fifth birthday. So you talk about patients there. You go right there.

"one chapter" Discussed on Brian's Daily Grind

"So this is really for all of you aspiring like people that are working on your first book or people that are thinking about working on your first book or people that are coming into your second book and hoping to make a harder harder impression and we do that by writing a cake ass first chapter. So why exactly do you want to kick ass birsh chapter well. It's pretty simple when people pick up your book they're gonna read the back of the book right and more than likely they're going to open it up and they're going to read the first page or two. You have those first two pages to really grab a hold of that reader so you want to make that first chapter really kick ass if you can hook them in the first. They might read the second if they go to the third more than likely they'll pick up your book at some point or another writing a kick ass first. Chapter is really incredibly easy. If you go about it the right way you can use this one trick that i'm about to teach you to make your first chapter kick ass. All you need to do is find a high action point in your book or a high. A high suspense moment in your book. Or or a moment of true lust and love and throw your reader into it in the first chapter right. Don't give away the good bits. Just just keep them kind of hanging. Bring them up to the point where they're about to find out some sort of resolve and put that in your first chapter if you pick up a book and immediately you're thrown into action. Immediately you thrown into suspense immediately you're thrown into some sort of hair raising situation to where the hero of the book is either about to go down or is about to make a fatal flaw or is about to killed or something crazy is about to happen if you bring your reader all the way up to that point of of excitement that payoff. There's a good chance they're going to want to continue reading to find out what that payoff is so for example. Let me read you something. This is from my book. The tale of jack. And jill. And i utilize the first page of the tale of jack and jill to implement this exact technique. Jill had given everything she had left. There was no more gas in the tank. If she funneled even one more drop of her life in jack she would be dead. It was necessary though. This was the craziest situation that they had been in to date. The entire cathedral was surrounded and there was no way out. The duo backed themselves into this corner because they were trying to be better than their addictions. An honest attempt to quell the hunger. That gnawed at both of them sent them on this path. It had proved to be nothing. More than disastrous. Jack and jill had made their decision to stop running. This would be the final stop on their journey. That had carried them from the heart of new orleans to the eastern seaboard. It would be the last time that they would battle with providence. They always knew their tail would end in tragedy from the very beginning. This was supposed to happen like this. They were destined to die here. But the soldiers that surrounded this cathedral had no idea how fucked they really were. Jack was in bern mode. Shit just got real. That's the first page of that book. I did that on purpose. Because i wanted to show you what kind of a book you were in the store for writing that first chapter and making it powerful making strong really reaching out and grabbing hold of your reader into snatching them into the book. That's your job as a storyteller and if you could pull that off in the first chapter you will have so much of an easier time getting people to finish reading your book anyway. Short in the suite of it is make your first chapter as impactful as possible. The trick you can use that generally works almost every single time is to go deeper into the story find a high intensity moment whole that moment into the first chapter and take your reader right up to the point of action right up to the point to where it really cuts loose. Make them want to know what happens to the characters next..

'The Programmers Brain' by Felienne Hermans: A Book About Coding and the Human Brain

"When i hear the term programmer's brain that that makes me think that is that is that an affliction is that something that needs to be addressed by medical professional. Or what is the programmer's brain. Oh sorry you seem to have a case the programmer's brain do any and his word of the book tries to explain what happens in your brain when you program to most programmers horse a really deep understanding of programs deep understanding of computer but most computer science programs including one where i teach. They don't really for stuff related to cook missions. Just that that comes. A scientist would consider basic things like the difference between long-term ariane short term memory and working memory. That's not something you necessarily learn as a programmer. I maybe some people are like you know you don't really need to know this. But once you start thinking especially of reading code and incorporating understanding code that you haven't written then is sort of important to understand. The difference between this code is hard because my term memories week here and this code is hard because my short memory suffering here and the book tries to explain the basics of science. And how that matter for reading code so i read The first two and a half chapters recently and One of the things. That i found interesting was how easily you made me stop and go down a rabbit hole on the internet and look up how to do something. You chose to give some examples at least in the first couple of chapters in three different programming languages and while i am familiar with several programming languages i had never actually seen the ap l. programming language. And so that. I coating example that you given that i was like What and i had. I had to stop and you know later on in in the second chapter. I believe it is You actually have an exercise for the reader to go and do something with that language. But in the first chapter when i first saw it i i had to stop. I had to go on the internet. I found a website that would actually run the code iran. The co at played with the code. I changed things. I literally couldn't move forward in the book. Until i had to figure it out what that code did and i don't know if you intended that but that was the side effect that i experienced was that part of what you might have been going for or is am. I just weird. No so it wasn't like i meant to send you off. And i the reason that i fix a pl is because i wanted to have a language in which the keywords Everyone would go like what. What the four ride. This and entry hard because the book isn't for owner for java for javascript is generic so if you want something that actual actually real code but also confusing to everyone. Then there's no you can pick from even something all like global or four tron that whereas with abo it's like super super confusing and it's confusing in an interesting way

S6 E2 - What does a normal transition from the military look like - FULL

"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are already asking nuts as question is a simple one but the answer is sometimes really hard to find. The question is this. What does a normal transition from the military look like and in this episode will try to do my very best to answer this question. But i'm also going to be sharing the five steps to nailing your transition from the military and in fact i dedicated an entire chapter in my book called resolve dedicated an entire chapter to just this issue and these five steps which i've never shared outside of the book. I'm gonna share them with you here today. Oh by the way my name is ear perkins. I'm us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Father to two amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve which i just mentioned and resolve is a book. That is a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and if you hadn't guessed on the host of this podcast now. I recently posed a couple of questions to our members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group and the first question. I asked to veterans and the second. I asked to veteran family members as a hero. Those questions said veterans. What is one word. Just one now. What is one word. You would use to describe your transition from the military and then veteran family members. I asked them something very similar. What is one word. You would use to describe. Your family. members transitioned from the military. Now look i know. Only one word does not give a lot of room to explain but there was really a theme here with not just veterans but also family members and here are a few of the responses. And see if you can kind of pick out. The theme loss unprepared uncertainty anger. Hell frustrating confusing difficult. And that was just the veteran responses. Let's take a look at the family member responses chaos unsettling rocky complicated. Now when we come back. Let's see if we can unpack these responses a bit to uncover what that theme is and and learn if your transition for the military was just as normal as everyone else's stay tuned will be right back who am i. Why am i still here. I uncover who i was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to plague my heart through the pain of job loss. Diagnosis often. Crippling anxiety finally discovered the reason. I'm here on the earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself so i wrote a book. Simply titled saw resolve is a book that is one apologetically faith-based step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other resolve provides veterans everywhere with things to help you step into your new life a life full of hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com now back to the show before the break. We covered those single word responses from members of the post. Nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And now i want to kind of dive in a bit and unpack those responses and hopefully once and for all answer the question probably all of us ask. Ourselves was my transition from the military. Normal was different was that the same wasn't normal. So let's take another look at those words loss. Hell complicated confusing frustrating uncertainty. You know honestly it just sounds really really rough in my own words that i kinda tag onto. My own transition is brutal now. I do everything in my power to include hosting and producing this podcast riding a book developing personal relationships with veterans serving on veterans nonprofit board. Do everything in my power. Everything i can to help veterans through the challenges of the transition. But what i found in all my. I'll say research for lack of a better term. Is that the transition is hard. Nearly one hundred percent of the time. I'm gonna say that again. The transition from the military is hard nearly one hundred percent of the time. Now that kind of brings up a follow up question right. Well what makes it hard. Is there just one specific thing or is it a combination of things. Now the truth is it probably is a combination of things. But i think there's one key element that makes the transition really really difficult and i wanna share a key insight with some practical steps that you can take on your own transition. But before i do. I want to take a quick detour here. So have you ever been driving down the road. And then you just took a short detour. Maybe you wanted to get a better lay of the land or you wanted to try out a different route to get to your destination. You're still headed your destination but maybe you just wanted a different picture. Maybe you wanted to take in the scenery. We're gonna take detour right now. Just a short little detour. And i want to detour into the meaning of the word transition. Now i don't wanna get all technical and bore you with just some definitions. But i think this is a really really key point so oxford languages defined transition as the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another for example. I'm in the middle of my transition out of the military or use another way of use it as a verb. It is to undergo or to cause to undergo a process or period of transition for example for talking about a war time scenario. We have transitioned from a high intensity combat operations role to a support role in the community. Now why do. I even bring that up. Why even take this detour. One that address. A misconception about transitioning from the military and the misconception is this that the transition from the military is nothing more than just another event in your life. That's the misconception that the transition from the military is just another event. So let's take a look at some of those events in our lives. You're born that's an event you graduated from high school. That's an event you got a job. That's an event you got married. That's an event even if you've been married more than once. Each marriage is another event. You had a child. That's an event you had another child. That's another event. So all those things i just mentioned are all single events. You don't have the same child twice. you don't get the same job twice you. Don't get married to the same person on the same day twice. So all of these are single events. And there's this kind of expectation that the transition will also be just a single event in the transition or rather the end state or the end goal that we're shooting for is not even clearly defined so when someone says transition from the military it can mean one hundred different things you ask one hundred people you get one hundred different answers. Since transition is not clearly defined in that context or another words. We don't even know what the target is. We're supposed to be aiming for. It's impossible to know whether we've successfully transitioned out so it makes sense. Then that people are saying gosh is hard. This is lost. This is hell. This is confusing is uncertain. This was brutal because we don't have any clear indication of whether we have been successful at it or not and the truth is transition isn't event but it's also journey so you do transition out when you hang up that uniform for the final time that's the event but you will continue to learn what you want your post military life to look like and that's the transition journey so now begs another question or another few questions is the target of the transition out of the military is the target targeted good job. Is it one hundred percent disability rating. Is it the approval to use vocational rehab Benefits for education. Is it something else entirely. What is the target when a service member leaves the military and frankly a as great as the cat program. Those transition programs the military are. I think that's where the military failed every single one of us. And i'm not trying to be the disgruntled veteran here because there's a lot of things that the military va do really well but setting us up for success in the transition is just not one of those and i think they failed us. Big time they said. Hey here's some benefits you could be eligible for. Here's some things you might wanna check out. Thank you for your service. Good luck with your life. There's no explanation of what your targets are or even should be so. I posed that question to you right now. How do you define transitioning from the military. What are the targets if you want to respond to send me message. Podcast at courage to fight again dot com. Let me know all right. So let's get back on track here. So i mentioned i wanted to share with you. One key insight into the why behind transition difficulty and i think the first and perhaps the most is what i just talked about in our detour. We're flying blind and we have no concept of the new target what it is where it is in fact. There's a quote in the book. I wrote resolve. That goes no one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until. I figure it out. Excuse me until first figuring out. Where was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was. They wanted to go all right. So here's those five steps. I promise you begin the episode step one. The and again these steps are key to nailing your transition from the military and these are just part of the resolve book. This is only one chapter step. One is cast the vision. Where do you want to be a year from now. Two years five years from now. Now mind this idea of you know where you want to be can fall into a variety of categories and maybe it's physical or career or relationships or va disability or post nine eleven gi bill. It could be a variety of things but one technique is to consider a single category. Let's take finance for example and let's say your goal is i want to be completely out of debt and i want to do that within five years now. That leads us into step two. We've we've got the single category that we're targeting one part of our lives or not being overly vague and saying i want to have more money are wanted to have more financial independence or i want to be a better person or went to be healthier. We're creating a specific goal in specific category over lives. And that's our vision right. I want to be out of debt completely out of debt within five years so that leads us into step to list out the challenges or the risks associated with achieving your vision of getting out of debt now for example maybe to use our example. We're in here. The financial financial say financial peace. That's daveramsey thing right To say like. I want to be completely out of debt within five years. Maybe you're living beyond your means right now or perhaps you and your family preferring higher standard of living so your normal expenses are higher. Nothing wrong with that but it could be a risk to achieving your vision within five years. Or maybe you've gone through a divorce in you're paying child support. Or maybe you're taking care of an elderly parent or an ageing parent so anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe. You're lauding for it. I'm going to say that again. Anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe you're allotting for it brings us to step three risk mitigation. There are several examples. I use in the book but what it boils down to. Is you sitting down either by yourself or with a group of other veterans who are also on this resolve journey. Where you're working through the book together but sitting down and coming up with a strategy of how you will mitigate those risks brings you to step four. Get feedback get feedback. Your perspective on your situation is unique. But it's only one perspective reach out to someone you trust. Share your vision with them and get their perspective on your vision and just a little side note. That is why the book resolve is created for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans. So you don't have to go out and search for those people you trust. You don't have to say men. Who do i ask you. Just talk to those who are going through the journey with you and finally step five experienced peace. Now i know it probably sounds like i'm over simplifying things a bit and into this more in the book but one thing i want to point out here is as we bring the show in for landing comparing your vision to someone else's is not going to help and in fact it could potentially make you even more uncertain about your own vision that you've cast for your life. Look where all different we have different skills. Different experiences different aptitudes in. We aren't all going to have the same vision and the sooner you embrace that the sooner you can experience the peace that comes from being your own path and making strides toward achieving that vision sir question today. Was your transition normal. Here's the answer if it was easy and you slip from wary uniform to not wearing a uniform with no significant issues. And you're like wow. This was great. Could couldn't couldn't have been better than no. Your transition was absolutely not normal but if it was hard like it was nearly every single one of us then yes. Your transition was absolutely. I hope this helps. I hope it helped answer the question. Did i answer the question. Did i not. What are your questions record voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast courage to fight again. Dot com more joined the post nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And post your question there. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. Them only comes through faith in jesus price whilst you right back here two weeks from today and the next veteran question we'll be doing our best to answer is this. What is the. Va solid start program. If you liked this leave survive star review on. I tunes help so much until next time. Thanks for listening. We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.

Now the truth is it probably is a combination of things. But i think there's one key element that makes the transition really really difficult and i wanna share a key insight with some practical steps that you can take on your own transition. But before i do. I want to take a quick detour here. So have you ever been driving down the road. And then you just took a short detour. Maybe you wanted to get a better lay of the land or you wanted to try out a different route to get to your destination. You're still headed your destination but maybe you just wanted a different picture. Maybe you wanted to take in the scenery. We're gonna take detour right now. Just a short little detour. And i want to detour into the meaning of the word transition. Now i don't wanna get all technical and bore you with just some definitions. But i think this is a really really key point so oxford languages defined transition as the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another for example. I'm in the middle of my transition out of the military or use another way of use it as a verb. It is to undergo or to cause to undergo a process or period of transition for example for talking about a war time scenario. We have transitioned from a high intensity combat operations role to a support role in the community. Now why do. I even bring that up. Why even take this detour. One that address. A misconception about transitioning from the military and the misconception is this that the transition from the military is nothing more than just another event in your life. That's the misconception that the transition from the military is just another event. So let's take a look at some of those events in our lives. You're born that's an event you graduated from high school. That's an event you got a job. That's an event you got married. That's an event even if you've been married more than once. Each marriage is another event. You had a child. That's an event you had another child. That's another event. So all those things i just mentioned are all single events. You don't have the same child twice. you don't get the same job twice you. Don't get married to the same person on the same day twice. So all of these are single events. And there's this kind of expectation that the transition will also be just a single event in the transition or rather the end state or the end goal that we're shooting for is not even clearly defined so when someone says transition from the military it can mean one hundred different things you ask one hundred people you get one hundred different answers. Since transition is not clearly defined in that context or another words. We don't even know what the target is. We're supposed to be aiming for. It's impossible to know whether we've successfully transitioned out so it makes sense. Then that people are saying gosh is hard. This is lost. This is hell. This is confusing is uncertain. This was brutal because we don't have any clear indication of whether we have been successful at it or not and the truth is transition isn't event but it's also journey so you do transition out when you hang up that uniform for the final time that's the event but you will continue to learn what you want your post military life to look like and that's the transition journey so now begs another question or another few questions is the target of the transition out of the military is the target targeted good job. Is it one hundred percent disability rating. Is it the approval to use vocational rehab Benefits for education. Is it something else entirely. What is the target when a service member leaves the military and frankly a as great as the cat program. Those transition programs the military are. I think that's where the military failed every single one of us. And i'm not trying to be the disgruntled veteran here because there's a lot of things that the military va do really well but setting us up for success in the transition is just not one of those and i think they failed us. Big time they said. Hey here's some benefits you could be eligible for. Here's some things you might wanna check out. Thank you for your service. Good luck with your life. There's no explanation of what your targets are or even should be so. I posed that question to you right now. How do you define transitioning from the military. What are the targets if you want to respond to send me message. Podcast at courage to fight again dot com. Let me know all right. So let's get back on track here. So i mentioned i wanted to share with you. One key insight into the why behind transition difficulty and i think the first and perhaps the most is what i just talked about in our detour. We're flying blind and we have no concept of the new target what it is where it is in fact. There's a quote in the book. I wrote resolve. That goes no one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until. I figure it out. Excuse me until first figuring out. Where was they wanted to go. I'm going to say that again. No one ever got where they were going until first figuring out where it was. They wanted to go all right. So here's those five steps. I promise you begin the episode step one. The and again these steps are key to nailing your transition from the military and these are just part of the resolve book. This is only one chapter step. One is cast the vision. Where do you want to be a year from now. Two years five years from now. Now mind this idea of you know where you want to be can fall into a variety of categories and maybe it's physical or career or relationships or va disability or post nine eleven gi bill. It could be a variety of things but one technique is to consider a single category. Let's take finance for example and let's say your goal is i want to be completely out of debt and i want to do that within five years now. That leads us into step two. We've we've got the single category that we're targeting one part of our lives or not being overly vague and saying i want to have more money are wanted to have more financial independence or i want to be a better person or went to be healthier. We're creating a specific goal in specific category over lives. And that's our vision right. I want to be out of debt completely out of debt within five years so that leads us into step to list out the challenges or the risks associated with achieving your vision of getting out of debt now for example maybe to use our example. We're in here. The financial financial say financial peace. That's daveramsey thing right To say like. I want to be completely out of debt within five years. Maybe you're living beyond your means right now or perhaps you and your family preferring higher standard of living so your normal expenses are higher. Nothing wrong with that but it could be a risk to achieving your vision within five years. Or maybe you've gone through a divorce in you're paying child support. Or maybe you're taking care of an elderly parent or an ageing parent so anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe. You're lauding for it. I'm going to say that again. Anything good or bad could be a potential risk to achieving your vision in the timeframe you're allotting for it brings us to step three risk mitigation. There are several examples. I use in the book but what it boils down to. Is you sitting down either by yourself or with a group of other veterans who are also on this resolve journey. Where you're working through the book together but sitting down and coming up with a strategy of how you will mitigate those risks brings you to step four. Get feedback get feedback. Your perspective on your situation is unique. But it's only one perspective reach out to someone you trust. Share your vision with them and get their perspective on your vision and just a little side note. That is why the book resolve is created for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans. So you don't have to go out and search for those people you trust. You don't have to say men. Who do i ask you. Just talk to those who are going through the journey with you and finally step five experienced peace. Now i know it probably sounds like i'm over simplifying things a bit and into this more in the book but one thing i want to point out here is as we bring the show in for landing comparing your vision to someone else's is not going to help and in fact it could potentially make you even more uncertain about your own vision that you've cast for your life. Look where all different we have different skills. Different experiences different aptitudes in. We aren't all going to have the same vision and the sooner you embrace that the sooner you can experience the peace that comes from being your own path and making strides toward achieving that vision sir question today. Was your transition normal. Here's the answer if it was easy and you slip from wary uniform to not wearing a uniform with no significant issues. And you're like wow. This was great. Could couldn't couldn't have been better than no. Your transition was absolutely not normal but if it was hard like it was nearly every single one of us then yes. Your transition was absolutely. I hope this helps. I hope it helped answer the question. Did i answer the question. Did i not. What are your questions record voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast courage to fight again. Dot com more joined the post nine eleven veterans and families facebook group. And post your question there. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. Them only comes through faith in jesus price whilst you right back here two weeks from today and the next veteran question we'll be doing our best to answer is this. What is the.

I'm don't know it so they're they're. They get to english and he's like <hes> yeah. It's fucking guys heard some car backfire somethin- then no big deal and as you come around this tall booth you see they're kind of parked around a square table and they're playing cards words <hes> <hes> you see there like naked lady cards on the man classy yeah very classy and and <hes> and you see mike they're just kind of trying to look hard but a little bit uncomfortable but it doesn't look like he's in danger in anyway away and they're smoking like two different joints at the same time other ones rolling a blunt. There's four guys here and that's about it. That's all i see <hes> i do. I see any other exits. The sea like straight ahead. There's a like checkout counter and then beyond that there's a simple brown door. <hes> think that it's kind of a long skinny restaurant. You think that's the way out gotcha got joe. I'm i'm still looking for for. I'm sorry what was his name the f._b._i. Agent mike. I'm looking for mike where he might be. He's able any he's sitting at the table. You can tell the drugs he takes off these blunts or a smaller than the others shirt and he's just kind of dipping at a drink. Okay i will go ahead and i'm going to grab a seat at one of the unoccupied booths and like the middle of the restaurant and just very very quietly pull a single gun and just rested on my lap just in case i'm gonna watch zhou nice okay yet and it proceeds to just be kind of a boring kind of bullshit sess- as a <music> it's almost like they're razzing mike trying to trying to get him to talk about his experiences chur and and i will turn on my i bullshit detector which is an ability i have.

It's <hes> let's see it's isn't it investigation and presence that sounds right right one to two successes all right yes so you can tell that mike is kind of telling stories that are from someone else's experience. Oh yeah it's kind of like if you ever watched reservoir war dogs tim roth he was like trained how to out to tell these stories and make like they were his. It feels kind of like that but you can't tell well if the guys at the table are aware yeah and then about ten minutes in mike starts to tell the story of his as a his mom finding out his mom was a prostitute and that she <hes> she found out that he found out she she started slapping him and then the john came in and he started beating her and then mike ended up shooting the guy the guy took the gun from him started beating her his mom stabbed john jesus and then mike helped like hide the guy's body body and by the end of it. You're like wow. This is a virtuoso experience. I'm not even sure if it didn't have. I'm taking on a journey yeah and the guys are just wrapped. They're just like watching this performance and by the end of it. They're like damn man. I can't believe i never even heard of that and he's like yeah yeah.
