"I'll let you know I'll report back. I'll return and report. So anyhow, church headquarters. And they said, hey, we've seen your content. We've seen your videos. We've heard your story, et cetera, et cetera. We want to know if you'll come to Salt Lake and film the prison curriculum for the gospel library. Wow. After three or four cartwheels, I put the bat at the phone back off of mute and said, yes, absolutely, right? I mean, why wouldn't I? Ran into my wife and said goodness, gracious. This is what I prayed for. And it really is Kurt, like I don't want to broad brush it. I usually, you know, anybody who's met me my personality is larger than life, and I love everybody. And so I don't want to diminish this moment. I can go back for the folks struggling. I can go back to having been released from prison, laying in my bed in California. And I received a phone call from an individual. And he said, hey, I've got a buddy who is at church headquarters and they're trying to put the scriptures on some of the prison tablets. Is it something that you could help with? And I said, yeah, of course, this is what my nonprofit does. I was on a sequence of phone calls and really cool stuff at transpired and we got the gospel library into the hands of inmates through their tablets. And while I was on the phone with this general authority, he said, you realize Travis, if you had never gone to prison, you would have never known about this. And you could have never helped me. Kurt, I waited ten years for that prayer to be answered. Wow, yeah. Tough moments, right? Tough moments, beautiful moments. And so I fast forward to this same call. I've told my wife for years, like my reason in telling the story is so that I hope that I inspire the youth of tomorrow to understand that life is going to be full of adversity. It's supposed to be. And when it does get tough because it's going to, you've got to look this way, not that way. You've got to look up and not down. To take this phone call to have them see my curriculum, have them understand where my passion was meant the world to me. So they emailed me, elder remnants office, emailed me three pages of questions. And so I'm pouring through these questions, right? I'm nervous. Let's be honest, right? I've been interviewed by everybody. Yahoo. Wall Street Journal, but you get this office. I'm scared. I'm in the field position. So here I am going through the three question three pages of questions and they fly me down the Salt Lake and monster production, beautiful stuff. Temple square, you know, underground the whole 9. I mean, really, really, really a spiritual spiritual experience. And they opened up the camera lens, and here you are, on the other side of that lens with a general authority. And he says to me, Travis, I want to know your relationship with the savior as a young man while incarcerated and today. It took me about three minutes to stop crying. And I said, that question wasn't on the list.

"You're leading an organization and you're not walking in that organization with a story, whether it's your own or whether you've moved on from your own, you know, sharing your own and you're sharing others like to me that's where the change component happens. I couldn't agree with you more. When I really realized my moment of change while I'm sitting there, there's this old book, Malcolm gladwell wrote it. I think it's called outliers, but he talks about how you have to it's been beaten to death on Google, whether it's right or wrong, I don't really care. But he basically says in order to master something, you have to spend like 10,000 hours doing it. Yeah, right? And so it was a piece that I had read while I was incarcerated. And I remember writing my wife and I said, you know what? This 10,000 hours is my self mastery moment. Wow. What a reframe, right? Right. What a reframe. And so when I go back to that judge who said, on January 20th, that he was going to make an example out of me. I said, you're right, you did. You absolutely did. And I'm grateful for it, because now a decade plus later, you know, we inspire hundreds of thousands of inmates on a daily basis. Yeah. We write dozens of pieces of curriculum. And my story has gone global. And I push everybody back to Christ. Everybody, everything that I try to really extract out of it, the right, the wrong, the good, the bad, the ugly. It comes back to Christ. And when people tell me, oh, I left the church, or I left the church for this reason or that reason. When I really pull out their identity, their reasoning, their God, their Christ is not my guy. My guy is in the pit with me. My guy knows that I'm imperfect. Knows that I'm going to swear on Tuesday next week. That's my flaw. He knows it. That's my guy. That's who I go to. That's my identity. Like when Moses, he came, right? Satan, Moses, Bing, bang, boom, son of man, and Moses goes, what are you talking about? Son of man, you're talking to the wrong guy. Having that level of confidence, that's the story that I hope these leaders pull from this. And it doesn't have to be monumental.

"Whether it's a legal battle like you experienced or even ugly divorce of my wife, she's done this to me. I tell her this and this and she won't listen, and now she, you know, she's Manning all these things and leaving me. There's so many of these situations of sort of shifting that victim mode where that individual has almost every right on paper to do that, right? And so maybe unpack this concept of that full ownership and accountability and how a leader could help foster that in a healthy way. Man, such a good question. And so deep. So yeah, when I walked in that day, there really was no expectation other than I was going to walk out. And I didn't have, you know, I didn't say goodbye to my wife. We didn't plan for it. I didn't have the plea deal in front of me. You know, we didn't go through some of those, you know, typical things that happen in criminal cases. And so when that judge banged the gavel and said two years, my whole world changed, you know, and as I'm standing there in the courtroom, you kind of, my moment of coming to full ownership was when I realized that handcuffed was on my left wrist and it was so tight, but I could actually feel it cut my skin. Was that moment when I woke up and I thought, okay, I'm built for this. And I looked across the courtroom, looked at my wife and told her that I would be okay. So at that moment, I realized that I had to be okay. Didn't mean that I didn't hurt, didn't mean that I didn't feel, didn't mean that I didn't cry, but I had to be okay. So I think oftentimes when we're talking culturally like you asked, why me? I think it's so normal for us to ask why me. I think we're not supposed to, but we do. And so one of the things that I did then and continue to do now and coach people to do as they go through difficult times is how to reframe that victimhood mentality. And so when I knew that I was built for a different purpose, but I was designed to go through this adversity so that I could come out on the other side and help other people. That became my guiding light. And so when you start to look down at all of the profits that we just finished the Old Testament, I teach gospel doctor. I had a pastor who ran the same church for 55 years and he gave me this beautiful quote about the Old Testament. When I told him I was teaching it in gospel doctrine, he said the Old Testament is the greatest collection of centers. And so for me, what I pulled out of it and what I hope that church leadership pulls out of it.

"And so maybe some did some didn't or it was very tough. It took me the better part of a year to convince everybody. You know, number one is a lot of people. And then to explain it, you know, because to people who aren't religious, like you said, a lot of, you know, some of these church disciplinary things can seem very litigious or legal. Right. That's confusing to some folks, especially, you know, I did have a few lawyers and they were like, this has nothing to do. With your ecclesiastical affiliations. And I'm like, yeah. Yes and no. And so it was an interesting conversation for me to have hundreds of times over the course of that year to help them understand, look, don't do this for the church or don't do this not for the church. Just understand that this is a process that me as a human and my belief set I'm going through and I need you to help me with it. And it wasn't the situation because you hear about affinity fraud or some of these pyramid schemes or it wasn't that you were stealing money from them. I mean, maybe there was loss of money just like all investments are at risk of losing money. But there wasn't a scheme that they felt like you were portraying them. Correct. I had that in my favor, I believe. You know, I could still go to these folks with honest and even down to the sentencing day. You know, I had several people show up on the day of sentencing. We really thought I was going to walk out that day and move on. Wow. Yeah. So during those 6 years, you're sort of go through that process as far as with the area authority and whatnot. And you got to a point where it's like everything seems in the up and up here. Obviously, the legal battles in front of Travis, but you maintained your recommend and could proceed as were the member of the church quote unquote.

"Is a guiding principle of mine and I have this talk AD nauseam with my 11 year old are only boy Brock. I tell them all the time. Your responsibilities are your fault. It really is a moment for me to defining moment when I look back and I could say show to what I could have. I could say, woe is me. I could say that we did everything right. And I could sell you all of that nonsense. And it would probably be true, but I don't think that it would serve anybody. It certainly wouldn't serve me in understanding how to fix this problem. Yeah. So, I mean, with hindsight, looking back, like you said, you were young, you're sort of ambitious and excited to do these things. And was it that, I mean, did you just not have that mentor by your side that understood all these ins and outs? Or was it you just had a team of bad attorneys? I mean, again, the accountability is on you, but I'm just curious because it seems like you were so well intentioned and suddenly ended up in prison. And nobody wants that. Pretty wild, right? Pretty well. Yeah. To answer your question, all of the above. When you are that young with that amount of money, that amount of wealth, and there's a lot of people in your corner that just say, yeah, yeah, yeah. Go, go, go, do, do, do. Everything will be fine. We'll fix that later. You know, there's a lot of accounting errors. There's a lot of commas that should be put in other places. But all of that can really be hidden when you're talking about millions of dollars. And you take into the account at the time, I'm 23, 24, 25 years old, you know, really coming into my own and there's a point where you have this monster ego about you. Because let's be real. I did everything that was right. I deserved this.

"Before we jump into the content of this episode, I kind of feel it's important that I introduced myself. Now, many of you have been around a long time, you're well familiar with my voice and with leading saints as an organization, but if you're not, well, my name is Kurt franka, and I am the executive director of leading saints and the podcast host. Now leading saints is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping Latter day Saints be better prepared to lead. And we do that through, we'll content creation like this podcast and many other resources at leading saints dot org and we don't act like we have all the answers or know exactly what a leader should do or not do, but we like to explore the concepts of leadership, the science of leadership, what people are researching about leadership and COE can apply them to a latter day saint world. So here we go. Let's get into this interview with Travis Ritchie. I've been waiting to have Travis on the podcast. I'm so grateful that we made this happen. He has a remarkable story of being incarcerated for something you may not expect someone would be incarcerated for, but then unless led him to jail and he spent a good two years in jail give or take, and now most recently, the church reached out to him an elder ren and his office has reached out to Travis two, helped develop some content for the gospel library app. And so in the, in the life help section, maybe by the time you hear this, there'll be an incarcerated or incarceration tab that pops up there and Travis was one of the main influences behind that. And so we go into the dynamic of not only helping individuals who've been incarcerated or who are currently incarcerated, but just the repentance process in general. How do we help and encourage people through repentance, regardless of it involves jail time or not? And he just has so many mic drop moments in this recording. It's just going to be well worth the listen. And then go check out the life help section in the gospel library app incarceration. And then we're going to link to it. I mentioned this in the interview, but he did a full more in depth interview about his story over at the cultural podcast with Richie stedman. And so we'll link to that in the show notes, definitely check it out, but let's jump into it. Here's my interview with Travis Ritchie. Travis Ritchie were finally connecting on the leading saints podcast. Man, my dreams have come true. Right now, I first heard your story on give a shout out to the cultural hall

"And again, at some point, he's probably going to look deep into your eyes and you're going to feel the piercing down your soul and you're going to feel your unworthiness, right? Yeah, yeah. Right. And change will come, right? And again, it starts with love, but it's not all. Anyways, do we do it, Ross? I think we may have done it. We have built Rome. Here we go. We did it. All right, is this the last episode of leading saints now? Of course not. Of course not. 2020 threes coming up and you got big plans. And now that now that Ross isn't on our board anymore, we can get some work done and now I'm just kidding. Let me publicly thank you for the countless hours behind the scenes. This is, I know you're not used to sincere Kurt, but let me pull them out for a few minutes, but really thank you for all you've done for leading saints and most people have no idea the influence and the horrible ideas that you saved the leading scenes world from being an alternative voice at times that I needed and other members of the board needed. So thank you. Thank you very much. You do good work. And I was privileged to be part of it. And you have never answered this question publicly, so I'm going to ask you now. I know. It's not on the first episode on the old episode in 2016. Oh, wow. Let's forget that ever happened. Let's be honest. It may disappear from the servers at some point. It has that great three nephite story. That's right. Yeah, if you need a good 3D, there's a great play. You need to go three knee fight story, go to that one. But all right, we're going to I forget what you even said. So considering all of your leadership experience and how is being a leader helps you become a better follower of Jesus Christ. Well, I think it, I think it's expansive. Because I think that when you're initially thinking about being a follower of Jesus Christ, it's a very internal sort of thing. You're thinking about how am I going to do this? How am I going to read the scriptures more, how am I going to pray more better? And then, but when you become a leader, you're trying to think about that with other people. And suddenly you have to have the empathy we were talking about. And suddenly you have to expand and not everybody is going to not every advice that piece of advice or for you is going to work for the people you're leading and you've got to get into their heads. You got to get into their shoes. And so it's helped me become a better follower of Christ by helping me understand everybody's journey towards Christ. Everybody's path to follow Christ. And I think that expansion has oftentimes given me tools I didn't previously had and oftentimes given me. Motions that I hadn't previously experienced is I really deeply got into the pain and sorrow other people were going through. Yeah, I think leader it's been expansive.

"You can't over invest empathy or love or whatever. And oftentimes I make you'll hear the term a lot like the gospel is just all about love and I say, well, I think it's starts with love. I don't think it's all about love. I mean, love is throughout it, but it's not that we just love them and come what may. At some point and this is maybe a little more controversial for that empathy rich crowd. And again, we've done so many episodes on the power of empathy and the role of it in leadership and the importance of what not. But, you know, I often remind people that at some point, all of us are going to have to face the savior and say, and answer the question of basically why did you go anywhere else for relief, but me, you know? And no matter what our life experience is or our tendencies or whatever, whatever we face in mortality, we all have something on a daily basis, maybe that we go to for relief that isn't the savior, you know, every niche albao, every tongue confess. That isn't just for the gentiles or even the Jews or the Muslims to have to answer. Even the Christians are going to have to answer that. And I think it's worth sitting with of being like, you know, is there a way to over invest in some of these virtues that seem so virtuous? Right. Well, the other example I like to give from the scriptures is Alma, you know, is imagining that he's an angel, and he can go across he can go anywhere he wants. And he can talk to everybody in the world, right? Oh, that I were an angel and hat could have the wish of my heart, right? This is his highest frame, right? And when he imagines this, he doesn't imagine that he's going to go around the world preaching love. He imagines he's going to go around teaching repentance, right? Which is you're doing something bad. You need to do something different, right? Now, of course, hopefully the process of going from doing something bad doing something different. It involves turning to God and feeling his love. And becoming a new man and doing all those things, right? But he's very clearly focused on we got to stop people from doing bad things, right? Right. We're doing a lot about things. And we got to change that, right? And so I do think that an overemphasis on and love, it's easy to turn, you know, focus on love and to a focus on acceptance no matter what, right? And to go from acceptance of the person, no matter what, to acceptance of what the person does, no matter what, right? Yeah. And then all kind of bleeds very, very naturally together, but at some point, you know, a person can do a bad thing, right? We do believe that. Yeah. Yeah, and that's like the tightrope that especially leaders or parents or just another form of leadership that we walk is that acceptance is crucial and I have all sorts of soap boxes about acceptance. And that's where it goes back to the gospel starts with love, but at some point, we can have to be a tough conversation between ourselves and God or Jesus about, no, you need to change. Like repentance is changing. And you need to change. And I think a lot of leaders over invest on that other side of the spectrum of being like, no, I need to make sure that you know you need to change and that you're doing something wrong, but we do that way before we've established a relationship of

"But I do think that this is one of the second order consequences that I'm talking about earlier, when we offload our thinking to something else, we would think like, oh, the phone would be great, right? Because we can look up whatever we need. And we don't have to memorize stuff. And we can spend more time thinking deep thoughts, right? And instead, we mostly don't we mostly wonder where our phone is. We feel we're left without it. We become more for yourself, Ross. Come on. One of my, one of my favorite quotes is or there's this on Reddit. They had this contest or a question. They said, what thing could you tell someone from 20 years ago that would be the most surprising? And someone's entry was, I have a device in my pocket. And it gives me access to all the world's knowledge. But I mostly use it to look at cat pictures and argue with strangers. Yeah. The potential is there, but we often fumble the football, I guess. Right. So lots of people dream of this. Computer melding and how cool that be and what we've tried it. And on a limited extent and it's mostly been kind of distracting and enervating, right? Left us weak and sort of at the prey of video game designers and candy crush creators. And even spirituality or religion, group that together, almost pulls us, like encourages away from that thing, right? We think that, oh, which I guess in some context, it's true. I mean, the scriptures on the phone, the family history dynamic. We've done some really cool things, but as far as like personal growth and connection with God, it requires us almost to step away from those things and turn peripherally or maybe we'll read the scriptures on the screen, but it's not we're not trying to go deeper into the technology to connect with God.

"And so yeah, so you look at something like chat GPT and they're worried about it getting out of control. They're worried that it will be used to create objectionable content. They're worried that it will turn out to be racist, right? They're worried about. So there's all these and give this a summary what Chet GPD is. Okay, so chat and DPP was a conversational model. It was really recently by, I believe, OpenAI, where if you go to chat GPT, you can sign up for account. And you can talk to it. And it's very intelligent, right? And you can give it any command you want. You can say it's like talking to Alexa on steroids, you can write me an essay about the American Revolution, highlighting the role of Alexander Hamilton. And it will totally do that, right? And so lots of people are worried that essays as an assignment for school children is at an end. Because the kids will just go to tattoo PTT and be like, they'll type in their assignment. It will just produce it and alternate in Ryan. Yeah. And so they're small sale risk, like it will do something we don't like. But the bigger scale risk is people are worried that something like GPT will get smarter and smarter. It will have its own goals and eventually become self aware like Skynet from terminator or something. And outsmart us as mortal beings. And it will end up taking over the world and deciding that it doesn't need us or whatever. There's all these science fiction scenarios, which if you get into it, you can get pretty deep down the rabbit hole, if you do it. And where do you think this is like, how are the crossroads with the gospel in the future?

"Up, but I think a lot of the times like God has just he's not and this is where I get in trouble is I wouldn't necessarily say God is in the details of all the things the decisions we make or the people we call an award or whatnot, but a lot of the time he's just like, you know, I formed you, I put your brain together and I gave you life experience like just make a decision and I'm good with it, right? But sometimes we'd like to go back to the more simplified narrative of, well, you know, God, God came to me. I felt this impression that this person was supposed to be stake president or whatever. I'm like, well, actually, you know, you interviewed a bunch of people and you got some names and you made the best decision with the information you had and you prayed about it and took it to God and make sure it's all good, but at the end of the day, you know, you sort of pick the person and that's okay, that's part of the regulatory process. Sure. Well, and also be something that inevitably that can be degrade someone's testimony if you're in a position, a leadership position, and you really feel strongly like this person should be my first counselor, right? In the bishop, or whatever, to get an example. And then later, it turns out they're cheating on their wife, right? You're going to wonder like, well, is anything true, right? Because I really felt very strongly. This guy was supposed to be on a first counselor. And then he did this bad thing. Yeah. And so was I unworthy? Was he, what happened? And yeah, we should be able to understand free agency and let him around. But I think if we put too much commitment on the way we think things are supposed to work out, when things don't work out that way, it can blindside us.

"A common theme is that everybody looks at kind of similar to you when you were thinking of bold new ideas for leading science. They always think of the first order outcome. Okay, we're going to do this and it's going to do this, right? We're going to create Facebook and it's going to allow people to talk to people all over the world, right? We're connecting as beautiful. Connecting, it's beautiful. About Jesus that has the wrong reference and will bring people to Christ, right? Right. Exactly. But they don't consider the second order effects that by creating anonymity. Maybe people are feel more free to express their negative opinions or attack other people. And I think a common theme I refer to is he's negative second order effects and then from that I often, as you say, do bring it to religion or kind of a more, I mean, I don't want to get too political, but it may be a more traditional outlook in the sense that, well, all the people that came before us also dealt with bad things and they created strong families are around because kind of no matter what happens if you have a strong family, then you've got a place to land, right? And you can create a strong community. If you create a strong, you know, ward, right? And if you don't get too wrapped up in things, I mean, obviously the church has lots of warnings about addiction, addictive behavior and stuff like that. And I think that I try and bring it back to, if we follow some of the traditions of our great plan or ancestors, not glib. Then a lot of these things are not going to be as bad as they could be. So give me an example. Maybe you sitting in a Sunday school class and you hear something or just in your day to today comings and goings, like how do we oversimplify that too much? Well, I think it's very common these days to predict stuff. I think I've seen a lot of people where they want to they want to predict the election, right? And they want to know exactly who's going to win, right? And so a lot of expectations are bound up in this idea of making the right prediction. And being able to predict the future is a good thing, right? If you can. Knowing what the future holds is great.

It just goes from red to green like almost like you achieve the goal each day. That happens instead of just achieving which i was a huge takeaway was wasn't something i really like intend in the beginning but that was really fun to see and i see myself all the time i could. Project trackers and things. I'm working on stuff. And i'm like i'm a little behind on pace. I feel like. I just knocked it all out when i'm really for percents down or something about the project so that's really really powerful. A positive motivator.

It's they notice. There's a difference in your productivity level will improve and you won't be as stressed about certain things and all of a sudden life flows and that's one of the things i noticed obviously with myself and teams i've worked with an individuals is when you capture that flow of life where life is flowing doesn't feel like jagged edge type of living literally just navigating through your days and and having your moments of okay. I'm going to work on this today or these are the two or three things i wanna do this week. And doing those feel you really feeling control like okay.

And and all of that can get stuff. And i have a dog so i know what that looks like Same thing with us. We get distracted. We see a news alert. It's like this or if your a stock market trader all the things have been going on the stock market for the past few days. And what's going on with all of that. It takes your attention off of what you need to be focusing on. And that's why systems like an absolute. You have really make a big difference in keeping people accountable to themselves anything. That's a such a big thing that i think often gets overlooked with all of these apps that people download to improve their lives. I agree. I wanna mention thing. Before i forget think of something suitably to divert out. I think one thing that a lot of people have noticed based on feedback in kind of quantitative stuff in qualitative conversations. I've talked to. I think fifteen thousand people. I've done all the email ever since early company and i never outsourced or anything and it's give me a lot of you know a good taste of how people really like see it and feel about it and one thing i've noticed is that people are Hesitant to adjust. And i think like if you get kind of lost in the weeds and you don't realize this one little cacho lease next to one tree that giant forest and don't see divorce from the zoo it's really easy to For instance think that like other goal has set two months ago. That's my goal. You know it's up to you. It must have some like you said a board of directors or something. We talked about like that. I mean if it's somebody you know top down pressure okay. Maybe you might be able to adjust. Gold data the quarterly target. Or whatever is but Is it's something personal. You just choose to adjust expectations In my life my wife loves to say when you're stressed do less and i love that against it's so easy to like get in this vicious cycle where you start to You know On it and say like the only way is through. I just have to push through this on one next week. It'll be easier and and then before you know what you're happened everything's crazy you know and so so yes from to say it's really. It's a really important thing to be able to adapt little bit. And if you start to feel things are slipping or you're not s new controls us become jagged edge. It's important to change the goal if you can if it's in your power to do it than just lower a little bit even if temporary just do it just for long enough to feel like you can break that cycle and get your life back in their control so map. You'll that that makes a lot of sense that i love that if your stress do last. That's so critical in. I've seen so many people that i've worked with that. Were on the path to burnout. And so i'm just going to work through it signalled. That's not no you don't work harder. Let's knock that just. That's pouring gasoline on a fire. That's not gonna work we need to do is take a step back and look in. You just mentioned something about adjusting your goals your goals. You can adjust them however you want so if your goal is to lose twenty pounds a share in if you're struggling with it and of course i always i always find it ironic That especially in so many climates. You know it. In new year's resolutions starting january first a good chunk of the country you know has winter and ladies naturally are going a it's cold. I need to store. thanks so here. We are trying to lose weight january first. And you know it's a you know where we're going up against a brick wall and we're like how come we're not losing things because your body's going. Hey we wanna you know. We need the energy to store up. Because have you been outside. It's called and we need some installation. So it's one of those things raid. I tell people like okay. If you're gonna do that plan for the year but recognized that the first three months you may or may not have the success. You may want to see not. I'm going to lose this. But i'm going to start implementing some healthier habits in january but i'm not gonna necessarily weigh myself until april. Just start with the little habits or say okay instead of twenty pounds. I wanna lose five. Pounds implement the same habits and with activity and things like that and eating the right foods for you than yeah. The weight will come off. I always remind people to especially if they're trying to lose a lot awaits look. You didn't put all that weight on in two months. You're certainly not going to lose it in two months or at least keep it off. I mean you do you know what you know. Boxers and you know. Mma fighters due to cut weight. And all that stuff you. He'd drink some things and all suddenly lose a bunch of waterways like sure. Congratulations but guess what. Tomorrow you're gonna wake up and it's all going to be back so you don't want that so you know. The sustainable changes are things. The implement over time so that i love the fact that you know that that does that so so someone downloads. You know you're up. What are some things that they should be. Focusing on. I because i know there's a lot of things in it. But what are some things that they should really focus on. I two ease into things depending on obviously what they need to do. I like Almost looking at it like kind of like a two by two will matrix Our new things that are old. Are you know things you've done for a long time right. There are things that are hard. There are things that are easy. And if you look at all those. I like to kind of balance the those four squares so for instance For me like drinking water is no big deal. I don't know why. I just never some people i talk to are like. I can't drink a glass of water in a day if i try and ten reminders and for me a drink six every day right but for me i barely remember. You know like this thing or so for me. I always remember so these these kinds of things like were you. If you feel like something super super easy. I think that's a really important thing to keep track of feel like that's under control to recognize is not like everything's out of control. I'm not behind pays off track or confused or feeling like something's difficult battle with everything doing so it's important to have like an easy witness long. Say another thing though. I think is to have something to challenge. Kind of an audacious like you know really inspiring goal and that's usually something. I would do this long term. So i like to have one thing that's like a daily habit is just an easy. I probably do it everytime anyway. I'm just gonna get that easy win and then one thing that's kind of hard longer terminating. A couple things in the middle things that are you know. Maybe they're a newer behavior. It's not that hard like one example. it was You know obviously you don't want start like a navy. Seal fitness training regimen. If you've had worked out ten years right but if you're playing sports all your life you related that kind of stuff and you just can't fall off the wagon little bit you want to get back into. Exercise may be an easy thing for you but what you choose is really important so having a couple medium things it's like you said it's maybe an existing behavior but it's a little bit challenging or brand new behavior but it's a really low level easy version of it and so i like to kind of cover those really good starting point because if you have a A cover that spectrum. It's a lot easier to feel good the whole time because you're more likely to succeed with at least two or three of those four things And then the hard one is such a long timeframe. you're not gonna feel any given daily basis that it's like all messed up today. That's the whole problem right. You can catch up. You know so. I think it's good just to kind of set yourself kind of to yourself up for success from the beginning in that way and then over time you can build on it at more things. I love the analogy. Said it's like their setbacks in things you're gonna have good days you can have challenging days just like in professional. Sports did not win every game. You know you know if you're like you know unless you're like coach k. at duke. Yeah you win. majority are games. I was thinking a completely derailed conversation of just for a second. I was thinking about him for some reason. came to mind and and how you know. He's been coach at duke since the eighties. And i'm like doing the math. they're going. I don't like that math. Because i was a teenager in the eighties. And now were you know where we are now going. Yeah that's a pretty big gap as the wait. A minute coach k.'s. Doot that whole time and it. It's it's one of those things. Where in his situation. Time and time again systems go implement. You know you you win some games you lose some games and things like that but the the consistency is there with habit tracking things like that. You'll get consistent with it if you if you put the time into it. Let's go feel funny at first if you haven't been doing but you get into the habit of things and then it will become is automatic. Is all the routine habits you have in the morning or when you go to bed. There's things that many of us do that we've done forever and you just add those things to it and it makes such a huge difference in your life and in having a tool occurs to be able to guide them in a way that is intuitive but easy to use i think is a big thing yet has been a big focus from the very start was kind of targeting. I remember Simon that i guess that a like the innovation curve thing that he talks about and it was targeting early adopters being for sure it was just the people who are willing to try. Anything wanted all the kind of geeking out you know. They wanted all the flexibility and control all the settings. You can imagine. But i didn't want it to be bloated in complicated like i. I didn't want it to be like a photoshop kind of Just like to lars everywhere in a million buttons and hundred fields every every option you know and so i tried to keep it as simple as i could for development but also more importantly for the user explains Simple yet flexible is kind of been the guiding principle north startled time and i think one of the One of those interesting things to is that once Once people get into it for a while there are people who have probably fifteen to twenty things that i track each day. They're gonna come up as do today. summer goals were having some easy win. Some are more challenging things projects thing but there are people Like i just talk someone who had seventy two trackers Talked to people who have have over one hundred. Some people track like their livers. There's one as a personal trainer that has like two or three hundred trackers because they track all the different exercises in one relaxes and things for all their clients. So they have you know. Twenty or thirty trackers clients and stuff. So it's really cool to think like that can still expanding kind of scale for people but it's definitely good to start with just a few start with just a few of build over time you're like you said so the takeaway from this don't line up with two hundred things to track. That's all you're going to be doing is tracking things instead of doing things start really small ad accordingly and you'll make a big difference but may for them to keep track and things for their clients as well to use it in in that type of thing is you know kind of a crm type system. You know as well as innovative of that person to be able to do that. So kyle of love their conversation they work. Can people find out more about you. This wonderful app and everything else you're doing me to Dot com is the website for the south and then make progress dot com. It's awesome. I'll definitely have that shot so kyle.

Do you first see any big implications of Cove it on the Super Bowl? I mean, really well, hoping not, but, uh, it'll be horrible at this point, especially for bucks.

You know the numbers being what they are right now There's we're starting to look like we're improving is now the right time to risk your health and those around you with the Super Bowl Party. I just Mm. I mean, the answer is I can only speak for myself and I will be attending a Super Bowl party. I will be attending a Super Bowl party where there will be. I'm just gonna be honest with you people from all around the country, To be honest with you. That's just the truth. That's where it is. But I think we made it through Thanksgiving. We made it through Christmas and I don't feel like people didn't do things and I'll be there were spikes we we made it through. So I just think as far as things that I would be concerned about setting us back to a truly dangerous level. I think we've made it through the things that would really be worrisome because we like the Super Bowl. We can love it. There are a lot of people that will, But I would imagine there's a lot of people who don't participate in the Super Bowl like they participate, and, like they did participate in a holiday that probably just passed a few weeks ago. The headline Washington Post. Despite pandemic 25% of fans say they will go Super Bowl parties. Do you think Majka of first off the fine party because that is open to interpretation more than 10 people. Okay, then. No, I'm don't have any interest in hanging out with more than 10 people. Honestly, if I'm with more than 10 people at a time at this point, it makes me kind of uncomfortable. I get that. So I'm game to have a couple of people who I know. Maybe God tested two days before. Wanna come over. Make a pot of chili. Some case, so hang out. That's totally cool with me. I don't want to go to a party. I just personally I don't. How many would you estimate are gonna be one that was doing the math there. It's not way over that. If anything, it's a little under it's I think it's maybe 10 at the Max. I was trying to the mountain head to think it's probably to do gatherings as well. If everybody goes that you're inviting over and let's say you get a rapid test, and you know that your negative just do that. Just be safe. I will say not that this makes it any better. Some of the people have had it with in the past four months and are better so hopefully you know, for their sake, they'll have the antibodies. It's really just me. That's you know, a risk that to the more and more in our inner circles. We're finding people are like I had it. I had it. I had it. So you're around people who have all had it and then to be extra safe. They can go get tested again. We need to go get a go give blood and get it. Anybody touch because I find it bizarre to think that you could have it had had it. And not know, but at the same time, I just feel Like it's possible we have it. I agree. 100%. I would buy me We showed no symptoms. No, no. At the very least, she mean, there may have been who knows a day where you wake up and you go. It feels a little weird. Never lost, you know, sense of taste or smell or anything but That's supposedly the whole thing about this and why it's so dangerous is there's so many asymptomatic people, So it's not out of the question that we were in that group 7275791 or 25, Okay or not Okay? With the covert numbers being where they are to have a Super Bowl party. I think I may be. I'll have six people at my house, including my son, his mom. My boo. Hello. This guy. Hello? Hi.

Apple cancels AirPower wireless charging pad
"Apple has cancelled airpower. That's not an April Fools joke. It's not a typo. It's not a hoax. It's not a glitch in the matrix airpower is dead. And here's a statement. Apple sent me about it. On behalf of senior vice president of hardware engineering, Dan Richey, oh after much effort, we've concluded airpower will not achieve our high standards, and we have canceled the project, we apologize. So those customers we're looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward. Now, I've already made an air power video that covers the history of the product from announcement too late last year and a link to it and the description, so I'm not going to rehash any of that here or now, but there are so many questions so many hot takes so many rush uploads pubs and so much misinformation and misunderstanding circulating out there. I felt like I had to try at the very least to help all of you who support this channel all the time understand what happened and why? At least as much as possible for anyone outside the air power and executive teams at apple to really do that. So I'm Renee, Richie, and this is vector. Now, I was there at apple September twenty seventeen event where they announced airpower, and I was there in the demo room where they had the nonfunctional dummy, and I post and I pride at it. So I'm going to try doing this video just a little bit differently. In other words fact, this no seriously, we're going to FAQ all of this. Why didn't apple announce air power back in September of two thousand seventeen if it was never gonna ship fair question. Apple typically shows up ships. The keynote happens and executive hold up a shiny new product and says it's available that day. We'll be up for preorder that day or that week. It's what we expect. It's a big part of what makes apple apple sometimes though, it takes longer. Sometimes apple announces early to get ahead of industry or regulatory leaks. Like, the original iphone, which was shown off in January of two thousand seven but only hit stores in June or. Apple watch which was shown off in September twenty fourteen but only shipped in April twenty fifteen sometimes apple announces early to give developers extra time to get apps. Ready like the Intel Macs or the original I Pat or just to show their commitment to developers like the twenty thirteen MAC pro or twenty seventy nine MAC pro. And sometimes just sometimes apple announces early to show their commitment not to a community, but to technology with a halo product meant to help push the industry forward like when they deleted the headphone, Jack. But introduced air pods or. Yeah. When the added Chee standard inductive charging to the iphone and introduced airpower air power was meant to prove apple wasn't just doing inductive charging me to move or a gimmick. But was serious about the future being wireless and was willing to put their resources where their marketing was using their control over everything from hardware to software to build something unprecedented. Something quote, unquote, only apple to build that. No one else had done it before. And that some thought it couldn't be done. Didn't matter much. At least not at the time. Apple had a team of engineers that believed. It was possible apple executives bought into their vision. And so air power made it up onto the keynote stage. And there can't be anyone there now that feels happy about that green light not being a big flashing neon red light not anymore, but hasn't preannouncing bitten apple in the ass before absolutely several times. And while the vast majority of apple product ship on time, and in a way that is beyond stupefying to anyone with even the smallest most casual understanding of logistical processes involved. Preannouncing is always a huge risk sometimes delays like the white. I phone force jobs announced in June of twenty ten but due to issues with the color apple only manage to ship in April of twenty eleven air pods were delayed by a couple of months, I found ten ship later than I phone eight home pot took an extra half a year. So I phoned ten aria ship later than I phone tennis. Sometimes it's hardware, sometimes it software. And while it's irksome for everyone. We hear are irked. It's a react. Of doing product at massive scale, not just for apple. But specifically for these purposes for apple delays have always happened delays will always happen. And apple makes more products, apple risks more products. Experiencing more delays. It's why for the majority of the last few years at the end of the year when I make my big list of the biggest problems facing, apple shipping and scale are almost always among them. This never would have happened under Steve Jobs, right? Stop tons of stuff went wrong under Steve Jobs. I just listed a bunch and didn't even have to reach into the mobile me button list. Ipod cracked cube, apple maps box. No person. No leadership is perfect. And if you aren't stumbling every once in a while on your race to the finish line, then you aren't even really trying. So here's the deal. Anytime you see or hear anyone invoke the this would never have happened under Steve Jobs trope just politely suggest that instead of disrespecting the man's memory. Displaying a staggering ignorance of apple that they stick to the facts. There's no real argument. Worth winning the can't be one just on those anyway, but if other companies could ship airpower like patch couldn't apple at a glance. It went look like there are a bunch of other multi device Chee charging mats on the market with two or three zones for different phones. Maybe even a stand for apple watch. So what stop apple from making something similar in a word. Apple apple could've pushed out a simple three zone charger to standard. She won apple watch and been done with it. But I had a far bigger ambition than just a pad with two phone coils and a watch magnet instead of just three sweet spots at you had to find and different charging areas for phones in the watch the entire air power pad was meant to be one uniform charging area that you could just drop any device phone or watch on anywhere. And it would just figure it out the very different charging requirements all on its own. Well, a phone said of air pods in an inductive charging case and a watch or two phones and a watch at any rate. It wasn't going to be bogged cheese standard either because bog standard just couldn't do that back. Then it was gonna. Be beyond what the cheese dander could do. But apple said, they were going to work with cheap to make it part of a future standard. So that everyone could benefit from whatever advancements. Apple was able to bring to the table. But today absolutely no one has been able to do what apple set out to do with airpower, not even apple. So then what went wrong in a nutshell? Too many coils in two small space because physics a covered this part back in November of last year. Just allow me to introduce myself John Gruber writing for daring fireball on September fifteen what I've heard third hand. But from multiple little birdies is that airpower really is well and truly something about the multi coil design getting too hot way too hot. There are engineers who looked at airpower design and said, it could never work thermally. And now those same engineers have that told you so smug look on their faces last year apple was apparently swayed by arguments that they could figure out a way to make it not get hot. They were clearly wrong. I think either had to go completely back to the drawing board and start over with an entirely different. Design or they decided to give up and they just don't want to say so on September sixteen twenty eighteen sunny Dickson previously. Best known for finding demo units of pre-production, iphones and other devices from the Chinese supply chain posted what he heard was going on with airpower currently device produces far too much, heat, which causes performance setbacks and can affect the ability of the devices to charge if they become to warm in the process. It also affects the ability of apples custom charging chip which runs strip down version of to function as intended the mechanism being used for multi vice charging which we can confirm comprised of between twenty one and twenty four power coils of various sizes to accommodate the three main products to be charged which are broken into three identical. Charging groups is proving extremely difficult to build or a fine and has been resulting in a significant amount of interference up to this point, which reduces the efficiency of charging Matt and contributions to the heat issues that engineers facing what about Apple's relationship with supply chain has that changed? No. This was never about parts apples. Really makes the parts that make the parts. This was about those parts, given the current limits of technology, and you know, physics not being able to create the product apple wanted to create at least not functionally. But apple just secured the trademark and included airpower and packaging, an I o s and yeah, I feel you throughout this long tortured. Saiga apple has kept on fighting to bring airpower to market feeling like they were getting close to success to release planning for it and -ticipant it expecting it convincing themselves that was about to happen. Maybe a few times over the last year, but especially this year, but alas? Yeah. No at some point after delay after delay failureship after failureship investments and expectations and trademarks packaging, and even pride be damned apple had to make the call shipper product that just didn't work and risk further long term damage to their brand or kill it. Even after everything that's gone into it and take the short term hit now and learn and do better next time shipping is court, apples culture. Great artists. Ship is one of their oldest and most closely held mantras. But they're also a company that thinks in years, not months or days. So while I have no doubt that this was an excruciatingly hard choice one. They knew disappoint a lot of customers and lay waste to a lot of the work. Everyone inside the company had put into it so far and would haunt them for years to come. While have no doubt about that. I also think ultimately it was the right choice and the only choice because if airpower had shipped and not even worked. It would have been infinitely worse for everyone can apple start over and make a new airpower apple could make a much simpler, less ambitious inductive charging pad and even branded as airpower pretty much right away. Certainly in the time. It's taken between them announcing cancelling the original that they didn't choose to do that. And that the outsource their original basic cheat chargers to Belkin and Mosey probably means that that's just not the kind of product that's high up on Apple's to do list. Could apple make airpower originally conceived? Maybe one day with more time, maybe years more time when technology. Advances and all those coils can be managed affectively all at the same time. So what alternatives are their power while? There's nothing on the market that does what airpower wanted to do. There are a few multi vice charging options out there that do something much simpler and much more realistic. And hey, they exist a link to Moore's list of best multi chargers description below which has everything from no, Matt Malo. Casa Europe mask to Ola Burr. So you can check out all of those options. And hey, if you're industrious, and you see this as an opportunity, and you wanna know how you can get involved in engineering the next generation of chargers bid at apple or elsewhere checkout. Brilliant, brilliant, daily problems are fun bite-sized way to master concepts by applying them each problem comes with illustrations animations or interactive visualizations. And all the context you need to solve the problem yourself. If you like the problem wanna learn more, there's a related course at explores the same concept in greater detail, electrical engineering machine learning algorithms. It's all their everything you need to get started, maybe reinvent airpower. So if you want to actively learn new fascinating concepts each day and get twenty percent off the annual subscription to all problems in the archives. Just be one of the first two hundred head on over to brilliant dot org slash vector and finish your day a little smarter every day. Thanks brilliant. And thanks to all of you for supporting the show. So yeah. R I p airpower not even September twenty seventeen to March twenty nineteen it never shipped not one unit. Not for one minute. It just didn't work. And so apple new it just had to die, and that's sobering. Not in the callous because so many people spend so much time expecting it. And so many more so much more time working on it. But in a way that reminds everyone no amount of money or history can guarantee future success. And I'm sure that's what apple is going to spend the next days in months. Figuring out. Just exactly what went wrong with airpower procedurally organizationally, and operationally and assuring can't ever go wrong in the same way again. And that's how air power will. Not in thermal overload or in darkness. But as a case study at apple university brought out anytime anyone even thinks of over promising and under delivering again, and hopefully preannouncing in just this way.
Apple in Talks to Give Veterans Access to Electronic Medical Records
"Those efforts apple is in talks with the VA to provide veterans access to electric medical records on the iphone. The Wall Street Journal says the deal could boost Apple's efforts to partner with medical institutions and turn it's Iowa software into a database to store and share health information. Apple could migrate records for as many as nine million vets in order to simplify doctor visits and potentially improve
