Not every venture worked. But richard went all in on each. If he could succeed he did. And you can't help but marvel at his biased action his willingness task what if and then follow those fanciful thoughts with bold and decisive steps forward. But you don't have to be born to richards. Bravo to cultivate a biased action.

"Was going on like a lot of young people thought. It was a travesty of justice Horrendous horrendous horrendous mistake and so i decided actually to start a magazine to campaign against it richard was only fourteen when he launched what he called student. Magazine like most schoolwise. He lacked in office. And because this was the late sixties. He didn't have his own phone which he needed to sell. Advertising and conduct interviews. He found his solution in a classic british on a red telephone booth or as they say telephone box but the amount of time he spent in his three by three foot office became a problem. I saw on the magazine from the school. phone books. and that fifteen. The headmaster said to me. I either had to stay at school and do my school work or leave school and do the magazine and so i said goodbye to him and the magazine became quite successful. I mean we sold about one hundred thousand copies an issue not every fifteen year old would have the bravo to start a business much less abandoned school to do so. And i really wouldn't recommend it. But what i want you. To notice is the underlying. Mindset the unstoppable. Buys to action. Have an idea act. An idea never looked back and he didn't. The magazine was the launch pad pursue richards. Next and more famous i venture virgin records. The spark came as it. So often does with richard from an offhand comment. One day somebody said to me. Music is a horrendously expensive. And why don't you consider starting a music company and so we started virgin records. It should probably go without saying. But i'll say it anyway. This was in the days before digital music. The walkman was almost a decade away. Cds were a futuristic gleam on the horizon. Vinyl was king. Who was only one problem for sir. Richard's fledgling record store but it was a pretty big one. We didn't have any records but once the orders came in we then went and bought them from record shops and try to get a discount and then handed leaflets outside concerts. And because we didn't buy the records upfront we got the cash flow to fund it in that way and virgin records was born. That's right. Richard took the orders. And the money before you had to stock or even knew if he'd be able to get into the price he was offering customers. There are a few things. I love about the story. The audacity of starting a record store without any records is one of them. But i also love that. Their lack of cash flow lead directly to their advantage. Richard and his team had no choice but to negotiate those steep discounts. Because they had already made the sales richard fast-growing reputation as someone who did things differently and a quick cavalier. Manner was attractive to lots of people not least of all musicians. Young artists came to me with tape and he was fifteen years old himself. And i found the tape hauntingly beautiful. We didn't have a record company so we went to the eight record companies to try to get somebody to put it out. None of them would put it out. Here it comes. Another moment when richard decides to go all in on a daring notion so we decided to start a record. Company and chew bells was the name of the alban. Mike oldfield was the hottest and it's millions of copies even if the name doesn't ring any bells tubular or otherwise. You would very likely recognize the music. The album's opening track was used as a theme for the movie. The extra assist and on the back of that we were able to build the largest independent record company in the world and ultimately designed people at the rolling stones and janet jackson and genesis. Peter gabriel and the sex pistols and so on and so on so it was a lot of fun by the mid eighties sir. Richard's biased action had seen him launch film distribution company. A video game publisher and most famously. An airline fatty five years ago when we started the big carriers were dreadful. You're lucky if you had a lot of chicken dent in your lap and there was no entertainment and very very surly surly crew generally and on one of those flights coming to the virgin islands. I got bumped which is typical thing that airlines did in those days. And so i had to play in filled it up with all the people who'd been bumped and kuldip virgin airlines is a joke however the joke very quickly had richard ask himself seriously the question. What if why not and we arrived in the b. b. I and joined that flight. Just thought ellen's do bump people. Maybe i should bring up boeing the next day which i did asked if they had it he secondhand seven point seven for sale turns out they did and the real virgin airlines was born sir. Richard uttered the five words. He'd repeat for the rest of his career words. That became the title of one of his three autobiographies. Or it's worth emulating even if you don't quite want to repeat them screw it. Let's do it Screw.

"Catalog of the entire sixty to ninety minute interviews with read their available only two masters of scale members. So here's day one of the mindset of scale. The theme of the day is asked what. Why not with. Sir richard branson. Let's listen welcomed the day one for the of scale our first course in the masters of scale app. I know how each minute matters for an entrepreneur and you probably have a tendency to multitask but take a moment right now to turn off slack closure email and arrive for these ten minutes. It will be worth your time whether you entrepreneur starting something from scratch on your own an entrepreneur who built something daring inside established organization or an executive leading at scale. Your single greatest. Success factor isn't knowledge expertise or network. It your mindset so you have to think in ways that are often the exact opposite of what you learn in school. No one is born with all of the entrepreneurial mindsets you may be comfortable in chaos but less confident and making quick decisions. You may have a natural instinct for escaping competition but less certainty about building company culture. The good news is that all of these mindsets can be cultivated. And that's what this course is about each day will tackle a different essential mindset and the most fundamental mindset. You need is a bias for action. It's not enough to have good ideas. You have to be ready to act on them to show you what i mean. I wanna share a story from sir. Richard branson richard is known for his death defying launch monroe leaps in the new markets and industries. Virgin records for genera lines and virgin galactic are just a few he embodies the entrepreneurial biased action will start the story in the mid nineteen sixties. Richard was in high school and about to act on his very first venture. The vietnamese war was going on like a lot of young people thought. It was a travesty of justice Horrendous horrendous horrendous mistake and so i decided actually.

"In which i can talk to them and which i'm getting the most useful things in this and so could network and by the way not all learnings like everyone tends to learning how to look. How do i build an machine. Or how do i hire a salesforce and those are important but also a lot of key. Learnings are what not to do because their heart of what defines someone who has learned stuff. Is it go well. Actually in fact these landmines. These are the things that looks like good ideas but are bad ideas and ultimately don't work out or cut the classic thing than amateurs smart amateurs caught in or these are the things that could look like an interesting bold risky idea. But it's much harder than you think. A lot of learnings are that seems like a good idea but they are allies. Very bad on it. That's a great point. Learning is not only about learning what to do. But what not to do. So how do you take this. Cautionary idea and translated into scaling. Sometimes when people think about scaling they think they have to do everything. When i went into business my theory was look this big brain. I can manage a whole bunch of complexity in my head and so i'm going to have a competitive differentiation from all the other people around me because i'm capable of having this very big complicated picture in my head and actually in fact that's not how business and business strategy nor by the way military works. It's the simplest plan that wins. It's the simplest plan that creates a lot of value. And so a lot of what. You're trying to do not say well look. All five of those are great ideas. We should do them. The answer is could we get away with doing one of them very well and this is why the white people talk about focus is in doing that. One thing very well and making that work. Is that the thing that we should really do from here. And is that the way we should plan now by the way that you get this. Classic once companies get big is say like example. You know there are people who say all that microsoft should do is windows and office. Let's say well. Why are you doing being because being is only a loss leader to put pressure on google. And that's not how you're gonna make that much money while the answer is if microsoft had done being than they wouldn't have had a you're in a jury is the next computing platform in the cloud which puts microsoft in the running and the edge for that. And so that's part of reason why you have once you get big a number of things and why the whole thing of doing all. There's only one thing isn't actually in fact once you're there is an accident in fact the right strategy now when you're a small company and you say we have five ideas. Doing one is much better than doing five and even though you might do want an experiment a little bit with one. The discipline is to play that one out and then correct. If it's not the right one we'll be back in a moment after word from our exclusive partner capital one business data and so united time. I tame okay. What does the data say. We're back with zoology. Bryant co founder of nightline pediatrics. She's been telling us how they were able to see patients from the very start of the pandemic thanks to an early investment in telemedicine and that gave them surprising data during the pandemic we really expanded our telemedicine reach throughout the whole state of texas and where we saw. The biggest pickup was in areas like waco like beaumont those are areas that we hadn't considered before the data towards the wadi where she could build new clinics. It also helped to rethink what those new clinics might look like. You can do the visit. Virtually but if they need a naval flop they have to come somewhere. I'm like okay. So maybe the clinics don't have to be as big maybe they can be expressed clinics like where instead of eight exam rooms. Therefore so is a perfect example of the way entrepreneurs are using last year's pivots to point the way to future growth says capital one businesses and cave one of the most inspiring things about business owners and learning about them and serving them. Is that you do see innovation at work every day. Do we really need the same size facility. We can create that. Same environment Perhaps it a smaller and more cost effective scale. The wadis also innovated by moving outside of her core footprint and realizing hey we can have customers all over the state and maybe even beyond in the future though. He's got new customers..

"Entrepreneurial mindset and the impact of democratizing entrepreneurship. So here we go. The first question starts at the beginning. How do you think about cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset as an investor and as a startup founder. Is it something you should seek out. The entrepreneurial mindset is throughout everything. That i do. It doesn't mean that everybody. I hire is an entrepreneur or interact with but like it's how you create the new how you shape the possible into the real. And i think that's pretty fundamental. The entrepreneurial mindset is not just entrepreneurs because it's not just the blanks leader paper. It's not just zero to be one one of the things that i look at that i learned from social at is actually think. There's three kind of games vera. V one v one to be one it and be one of the to all of these are forms of entrepreneurial mindset now probably goes in like oh my god jumping in the unknown because vizier v one v wanted to be to be wanting to be one one in those because if you wanna be one is most naturally thing and that's the thing that people tended most do because it has the most certainty of outcome and so forth but the other ones are fundamentally important because at some point you get to a local maximize. Your just doesn't work on the b. one b. One doesn't really work now. What i would say is in terms of working learning is you should always be learning right. This is a little bit like the glengarry glen. Ross always be closing but it's always be learning and you should be approaching every circumstance with. Is there something serious. I can learn here. So what happens if you drop the ball and stop moving forward. Are there key moments or milestones. When you think an entrepreneur should reset should double down on going back to learning. So one question is if you think oh. I'm actually in fact way off here right like i don't really have the right map about learning at the right rate by being an action and by doing the thing those kinds of things then you go get. I should go back to learning now. Entrepreneurs almost always tend to be learned by doing learn by getting into it. And it's actually that buys action is action back very good thing for entrepreneurs one of the things that people tend to overly by us on his learn learn learn learn learn learn learn learn. Learn before you do and actually it's you know. Learn to learn to learn to learn to learn to learn do is useful now. Sometimes you say well. Hey i'm gonna learn like there's something deep. Coding modern coating like artificial intelligence some aspects of business strategy or something else. I actually need to learn a stack before. I can get into the learn. Do mom and sometimes that's something in the field like for example. I'd say one of the things that you know was a very good piece of advice that i was given was learn how to ship commercial software even though the way the large company ship commercials offers different than small companies. Learn the components of that first before trying to go create a software company. Because then i'm not figuring out like okay. What is a pr. D- what is a minimum viable product. What is qa. look like what is the people doing these jobs together. Look like what is the way they coordinate like. I bet at least baseline may be improving a lot of maybe changing it a lot but i understand both what's baseline also understand what everyone coming into the picture with some experience will also experience as a common language a common method of play. A common theory of the game as a way of doing that. Now is you think about learning. Are there great examples of learners out their models of how people take in information. I think there are different kinds of learners. Not everyone learns the same way now. Obviously the classic way that people say it is. Some people are reading learners. Some people are audio learner. Some people are video learners and on but it's not just that some people are learners by first principles and what they're doing some people in learners by talking to other people. Some people are learners by studying. What other folks are doing. And so you should have that theory of you as an individual but utah also by the way. Have that theory of you as a group. Use a company because just not thinking about individuals is learning but as companies learning and has kind of increasing capabilities. Fitness functions is very important by. That's not necessarily big surprise because one of the things that happens as people get more. Systemized groups is post-mortems and wiki knowledge bases and other kinds of things that are in their silicate that a strong example of how facebook operates is facebook says we built a huge testing framework so that everybody can literally individual engineers can run tasks on features and things that they want to do in order to make stuff happen now part of the process. Is you have to document that. You've searched the knowledge base to see if anyone else's run the test before you do it so you're not just blindly running the same again so you can position your task against what has happened before or say. Oh i see it's already been done and that's an example of how not just individual earnings but group learning have playing together. How do you work networks into learning. What are the key things you look for in learning environments working networks in a learning is a function of kind of like okay. Who are the smart people out there and talk about what questions. Can i ask them what things can learn from in what they're doing..

"The masters of scale courses app and i encourage you to stay tuned all the way to the end because we'll be sharing with you a lesson from the courses app which includes a special appearance from sir richard branson that really brings it all together and a wrap up lesson from read that you won't want to miss now onto the special episode of masters of scale. You gotta have incredible talent. At every position there are fires burning out. You've such an idiot. Go back to paris. I have no idea what sorry mistake with. You have to time it right absolutely all ten years later but do we invaded iraq. This is masters scale. We'll start the show in a moment after award from exclusive brand partner capital one business The first thing you're going to see as a lot of colors a huge big well and a elephants spinning a ball on its nose and everything is children sized wadi bryant founder of nightline pediatrics chenab. Urgent care clinics in houston but this colorful waiting room and it's pint-sized furniture didn't see many patients during the pandemic thank goodness we already had telemedicine put in place. That was kind of our saving grace. Zouwad made the leap to telemedicine during previous crisis. A hurricane what really got us going with telemedicine was harvey in twenty seventeen if does hurricane if there is a winter freeze children's still get sick so even if they can't get to us physically we have to provide another way for them to get treatment. Is that kind of foresight to let night light. Whether the latest storm says an cave of capital one business one of the trends we see across business owners is an investment in continuous learning and continuous improvement. And so i think naturally when crisis hits that's an opportunity to think big think different because you have to once you start thinking big who's to say where it'll stop. We'll hear how telemedicine gives awadhi some big ideas of our own later in the show. It's all part of capital. One businesses look at entrepreneurs who are persevering with courage and innovation. I'm bob sathian former editor fast company founder of the flux group and host for this special bonus episode of masters of scale we believe the single greatest success factor for any scale leader isn't knowledge experience or network. It's your mindset optimism resilience curiosity and also things that are less obvious counter intuitive mindset's like letting fires burn and occasionally doing things that don't scale and no one not even read is born with all the entrepreneurial mindsets you may be comfortable in chaos but.

"To hopefully in the future create plants that can travel with astronauts going to further destinations or to create plants that. Can you know better adapt to harsh environments on earth. So those are the kinds of research and technologies that are coming out of this capability And there's a lot there's physiologists biologists astrophysicists that want to use this capability because it provides a lot longer time in microgravity than you can get with aircraft or dropped towers on earth. So it's really really exciting. Time and the fact that a researcher can now fly with their experiments to space is just a whole new capability that i'm just excited to see be utilized. I've always had a curiosity about space. So i understand why seven hundred people have already signed up to fly with you. Starting next year You promised to make this accessible to everybody but with a price tag of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Perceived many people think it's a You know that it's for the wealthy especially with jeff bezos following you into space next week. How do you answer these critics. Well first of all it takes it takes wealthy individuals to crate Exciting new companies. In one hundred years ago it was wealthy individuals that created their the airline over over the decades. The price of airline tickets come Has come down and down But what you know what we're trying to do is come up with lots of ways of neighboring people who could never afford to go into space to go into space so today we've just launched something on amaz Which is just for ten dollars you can. You can spend your ten dollars. You get a lottery ticket if you win you a friend Couldn't go to space. You can come and meet me at the At the space factory rather than the chocolate factory. I'll show you around and all those ten dollars go towards the labeling hopefully dozens of other people to go to space for free and if it works it could be a sort of self propelling thing where we can actually get dozens of people to be able to go to space no-cost themselves. In the meantime the wealthy people will pay hype highest prices. I've been much much less than its costs on if going on getting into space on the right but with the russian spacious but that will help help pay for the new spaceships which will start driving the prices down in the in the decades to come. Now we've seen elon. Musk developed the space x program and amazon founder. Jeff bezos set to liftoff hit his own spacecraft in seven days. I need the truth here. How real is this perceived billionaire rivalry and you can be honest with us. Did it kind of feel good to be. Jeff faso's space just little Honestly not i mean. I know everybody expects me to say yes. And but they fastball. Just going to say what i hate. The word billionaire. I mean we. We've i started with two hundred pounds of my mom. My mom found that clinton gave it to the police and two months later she gave me the two hundred pounds and over the years of created. I think quite a lot of really really quite exciting companies and virgin crews lots of different companies which i think benefited and people that loved experience with an haven't done it to make money. I've done it. Because i want to create things i could be proud of in which which all the people who were can be proud of sharia. You know she. She came and she she is one of eight hundred wonderful people who created virgin galactic We have another eight hundred people who create virgin orbit which puts satellites into space so far more important things than racing racing with rate being seen to be racing with the bill there. And i have to tell you sir richard. You're the reason. I started flying again because of everything you were offering in terms of how to go back into the sky as someone who flew. I'm still not all that comfortable. But i'm better than i was and i. I owe that to you and to virgin america. So you've done that for lack of people. And so i wanna thank you and i want to say.

"Back. And before we move on. I need to clear something up. President biden loss texas by six hundred thirty thousand votes. You would think if people were going to cheat. He would have won. I'm just saying yesterday. President biden's set out to boost the low vaccination rate amongst teens with an instagram post. Asking young people to help him get out the message. One of the biggest pop stars on the planet right now. Olivia rodrigo entered the and. She's at the white house right now. Sarah is a livia a good spokesperson for this push. I absolutely think so. You wanna come to young people where they're at and right now. This is tapping into the pulse of what's going on. Among the younger ones among us but like obama the digital campaign he did bernie sanders when he interviewed cardi b. This is about kind of tapping into their ether. Olivia rodriguez combined twenty eight million followers and her all eleven songs from her recent album sour charted in the hot one hundred top thirty. This girl you can't be in a car or listen to a radio without hearing her song. So i just think this was a brilliant move by the white house to tap into her influence. Megan are you a fan of bolivia's she. There might be a bit of a generation gap for folks but because a lot of people weren't familiar with but you know who she was. And do you think she's a good spokesperson. I love her. she's so good. I just hope that something about this. Vaccination campaign takes the lyrics from her song. Good for you because the lyrics are good for you. You'll look happy and healthy. And i just hope they somehow combine that earworm song for the vaccine rollout. It'd be funny and she's wildly talented and all her songs are like amazing. And she's just a total rising star. There's nothing unusual about this. I mean you know richard. Nixon met elvis.

You just want to get people excited and want to get people interested in bringing out. Somebody that everybody loves is always a good idea to do that. Yeah never a bad idea anna. Will this kind of targeted outreach. Work in your opinion what this is just one that they're doing. they're doing all sorts of outreach. At the white house. I did an instagram. Live with dr foul. She last week they're going for people in the communities are going for preachers or going for local. Doctors are going for the celebrities. And i think this all out approach is what we need right now when we see that so many states over forty states are trending in the wrong direction when it comes to cove it and it's such a stark contrast with what's happening in my state for example where i am so disappointed to see rhonda scientists governor rhonda santa's who worked in cooperation with biden and was bipartisan or nonpartisan in the surf. Side collapse reaction. He is selling political. Swag he is selling. He's merchandising with the suffering of the people who've died with the pandemic don't be cute. Don't sell beer cruces merch exploiting an profiting off the pandemic and buying into the signs denying while your state has increased exponentially and one week. It's called the cases. That's just irresponsible and shameful. And i'm very very disappointed in him. Wow sunny d. Do you think influencers and teen celebs the best messengers here to pass the information to young people. Honestly what be. I'm still so floored at don't fao g. My florida. I mean cove is everyone knows. Hit our family particularly hard with the death of both of my husband's parents. And i cannot believe that you would have the governor of florida encouraging people not to get vaccinated. That is despicable. It's disgusting. But i will say this you know when you look at the numbers for teens. You have sixteen only thirty seven point. One percent of sixteen to seventeen year olds have been vaccinated only twenty four point. Nine percent of twelve to fifteen year olds have been vaccinated. Eighteen to twenty four only forty one point six percent fully vaccinated. So the message has to get out and whoever is the right messenger. Let's do it. i like that. You've heard less mega work.

When i was little i saw richard. Sorry i am still little when i was younger I saw richard announced that he was going to create virgin galactic to make space accessible for all and it. That's when i said i was going to go up to space with virgin galactic because they didn't qualify because of my eyesight for nasa or other methods of going to space so So meaningful to have gone to space and to have gone to space with virgin galactic richard. My husband would do anything to fly to space and eat candy. Gobbling menem's do weightless cartwheel's i've told him not to even think of spending that money because he's gonna need to stay in space if he spends that money so he needs to live vicariously through you. Can you describe how it felt what you saw there. Just can you describe it to those of us. That ain't going. Well i mean we we. We we went. We went up from north to three thousand miles an hour.

Is that your job on. This flight was science based and you carried apparently experiments strapped to your leg. I wanna know what information were you trying to gather. And how do you think this capability will transform science and research absolutely so my role as mission specialist in this flight Was to conduct human tended research. So i was carrying What's called kennedy fixation to From the university of florida and had a plant in there that would express genes depending on the environment so we took it through hygiene environment on the space and the low g environment in space and they can take it back to a lab and see what genes were expressed to see how the plant reacted to that environment..

Why Dr. Kumar is Changing The Wellness Game
"Welcome back once again, see the outcomes, rocket podcasts where we chat with today's most successful and inspiring health care leaders. I really WANNA. Thank you for tuning in again and I welcome you to go to outcomes rocket dot health slash reviews where you could rate and review today's podcast because he is one outstanding individual and healthcare is name is Dr Rajiv Kumar he's the president and chief medical officer at Virgin Pulse during medical school he realized that many of the worst health problems we face as a nation diabetes heart disease cancer hypertension. Et, CETERA. I related to the collective unhealthy lifestyle, and so he has pledged to make a difference in this industry. He's done and as a frontline physician and now through various different companies, some amazing things and so what I WANNA do is open up the microphone to Raji to fill in any of the gaps of the introduction and then a so we could get into the podcast. Reggie welcome to the PODCAST. Think saw glad to be here. So Rajiv, what would you fill in in your intro that I that I left out? I think that was pretty comprehensive. Just, a little bit about virgin pulse. You know what? I think that may not be familiar name to a lot of folks on your that are listening to your podcast. We are an employee wellbeing company. We work with large employers all around the world, and our goal is to help them activate their employees to lead healthier lifestyles which had to kind of go around the healthcare system a little bit, and go direct to the employees and figure out ways to motivate them to inspire them and to help them sustain behavior change over time, and it's not just about healthcare cost reduction. It really is about how do we help people be? Healthier, happier and more productive at work in their personal lives. So that's really what our mission is. That's beautiful and listeners for those of you who haven't connected the DOTS virgin pulse. One of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group companies. So you know with the gentleman like that behind something like this and and Rajiv as part of the executive leadership team, you can imagine some great things are happening. It's an exciting time for us. We definitely are inspired by Sir Richard Branson leadership in his philosophy is if you take care of your employees, they'll take care of your business, and so we're trying to empower employers to take better care of their employees. So strong, and and you know it's really interesting that you guys are tackling this employer perspective of the entire health career equation because costs are soaring and aside from labor costs, it seems like healthcare cost is oftentimes double digits in that front. What are your thoughts on what should be on every medical leaders agenda today? Well, I'm biased but I think it has to be a behavior change remember too often looking for a magic pill or magic device or something to kind of stem the tide of rising obesity, diabetes and heart disease in our country and at the end of the day, there's so much. We can do to actually change people's behavior a lot of what we're facing as a result of our diet, our physical activity or lack thereof the stress that we have in our lives just how we how we treat ourselves and how we don't take care of ourselves, and so I think it's not necessarily a hot topic I. Think it should be and and I wish there was more focus on it is the perennial that if we can change behavior, we can prevent a lot of disease and we can produce significantly greater outcomes and Reggie. What would you say right now at at at Virgin? Pulse. Is an example of how you guys are improving health outcomes. Well, I think we really tried to think outside of the box I think traditional health interventions and and health and wellbeing platforms have largely been ineffective and they've been around for decades. So we sat around and we said what if we took a different approach rather than making people feel like they're failures rather than telling them that they're sick what if we actually make them feel successful what if we make them feel good about themselves right off the bat what would that do for self esteem for their motivation and for their ability to change. Most of what we see in our industry is a heavy focus on screening, and so employers asked their employees to take health risk assessments and do biometric screenings and so forth, and the problem with that is they take a health risk assessment tells them you're sick. You know you have high risk, your unhealthy needs to do more change your lifestyle, get your biometric screening results and you have high blood pressure. You may not like the results that you get back and that can be very demotivating, and so we've said is, is there a scientist out there? Is there a behavior change model that focuses on success? We found a scientist by the name of Dr Bj fog out of Stanford University and Dr Fog is sort of a new guru of behavior change and he's come up with a behavior change model that he caused the fog behavior change model and it's very simple as model is is a formula to it is called B. Equals M. A. T.. Equals motivation times, ability times a trigger, and so what he means by that is to get somebody to do a behavior that we want them to do or they want to do. First of all, they have to have the motivation to do it. Second is they have to have the ability to do it, and a third is you have to trigger them. To trump to do that behavior and too often in the in the kind of behavior change space, we ask people to do things that require either too much motivation or too much ability. So we say something like go to the gym four times a week and exercise for sixty minutes. Each time you go that takes a lot of motivation and some people may not even have the ability a really know how to do that where to get started so forth so Dr Fog says, well, motivation is hard to change. Your motivation waxes and wanes on a daily basis on an hourly basis, we can't really change somebody's motivation that easily what you can do is changed the behavior you're asking them to do to make it easier. You can change the ability to perform the action, and so the idea is if you take a behavior like washing your teeth and you break it down to the smallest tiniest thing that somebody could possibly do like floss one tooth and you ask them to do that they can actually do. That very easily, it doesn't take a lot of motivation is very quick to do, and if they do that and you celebrate the fact that they did it, you can help them build what we call success momentum, and then they're going to feel better about going to the next step and try something harder and so in our entire approach to behavior change, we break behaviors down into their simplest most basic action we ask people to do that would trigger then and then when they do it we. Reward them make them successful. We give them social status. They might get some kind of points or some kind of reward, and then we ask them to do something harder the next time around and stuff feedback loop that builds up momentum, and it changes behavior in a very sustainable way in a very habitual way, which is really the key to behavior changes creating habits.

S. navy when you meet highs and young men and women how extraordinarily blessed we are the U. S. navy and those that are working to get the USS mercy here in California I have done a remarkable job to turn around a very short period of time eleven hundred crew on that ship and we're now in the process of determining exactly which type of decompression strategies that will work and what I mean by that is to decompress the rest of the system by providing support on board that ship so that we can ultimately advance our protocols and procedures to get people in more appropriate care and more appropriate settings and so that's the purpose of the conversation we just had the conversations that are occurring quite literally in real time behind me but we're very very enthusiastic that that ship will be coming apart as early as this Friday accordingly we advanced a number of actions today particularly on the issue of prisons and the state I did an executive order today as it relates to the intake processing both at C. D. C. R. I. California state correction system and DJ J. R. juvenile division in order to address the legitimate anxieties and concerns related to prisoners and to make sure that we have our procedures and protocols in place to protect staff as well as inmates from covert nineteen as you know we have one official tested positive inmate we have five staff members currently we are going to restrict the intake process in the system and we are putting together new a protocols and procedures and throughout that system thirty five presence to make sure that we are isolated people were not mixing our prison populations as we tend to do transfers and the like on a typical basis so the executive order a reinforced the guidelines or procedures and protocols that were now advancing both for DJJ and C. C. R. in addition to that something's very familiar to me and weekly basis I review personally the recommendations of our parole board for people that are eligible for parole in each and every circumstance when people are made eligible to go through a very formal process of interviews and reviews that's done in person because of the nature of this virus the nature of this moment we're going to be changing procedures and protocols and in the executive order we lay out a strategy to begin the process of doing a video conferences this would be a temporary advancement but under the circumstances in terms of our isolation strategies in order to continue the processing of people that are eligible for parole in the encouragement to make sure that that process happens the scale it's been happening in the past we think it's appropriate to move forward with those teleconferences in that executive order lays out strategies to do just that and so those orders will be in effect the artifact media at Lee and the protocols the procedures are in effect in real time and we could talk more about that in the coming days as we look not just to the state prison population but the county jail population as well in addition to that we had remarkable Dave conversations with the army corps of engineers they are now stationed just right outside our stock here at the emergency operation centers we have three divisions throughout the state of California and they've been working with our state leadership National Guard others within our respective organizations to cite through a survey process the appropriate locations for potential support of army corps in addition to sites that we have identified through our federal medical program that we announced yesterday and the fact that we have two sides coming up one in riverside in Santa Clara we're looking additional sites in ways that the army corps can complement the work to get those sites fully operational insights convention facilities that's facilities large and small up and down the state fairgrounds and the like but we went through more detailed protocols and sharing expectations so that we can lay out exactly our expectations moving forward the army corps engineers moves quickly and we're very enthusiastic that that partnership is really taking shape over the course of last week and been advanced of the course last few hours in more meaningful ways edition that we had a wonderful news Sir Richard Branson virgin now partnering as Tim cook did Ilan musk at Tesla and SpaceX just another individual that stepped up virgin stepping up bring in a seven forty seven into the bay area and Oakland and we worked on the joysticks related to that for significant enhancement of personal protective gear will have more details on that the next day or two just another point of emphasis in other example an indication of people that are stepping up in a relic ways bringing that from Asia into the bay area to help support our efforts to help support one of the largest hospital systems Kaiser in that process we had the tragic loss of a lot a young life a teenager in Lancaster California which underscores the enormity of the challenge in front of us this health crisis and how it could impact anybody and everybody and I know it's sobering when you read the headlines so have I said a child but to be more precise a teenager a lost our lives and we are doing the investigation trying to understand more about exactly what occurred but covert related tragic loss of life as of ten AM this morning we've lost forty lives in the state of California related to covet nineteen we have lost over twenty one hundred or rather we have twenty one hundred positives state California twenty one hundred and two which is seventeen point five percent higher than the previous day again that's at ten AM number those numbers change in real time but a seventeen and a half percent increase and now a loss of a young person's life I want to just make a point Tampa size this and extend my heartfelt sympathies to the family and the community that have lost their loved one but also make this point young people can and will be impacted by this virus in fact young people disproportionately are the ones testing positive in the state of California fifty percent of the two thousand one hundred and two individuals that have tested positive fifty percent are between the age of eighteen and forty nine I'll repeat that half of those that have tested positive to date in the state of California eighteen to forty nine years old this disease impacts everybody the question is the acuity and the hospitalization rate that yes does skew on the side of older populations but with this tragic now death it is a reminder to everybody to take this seriously it's a health crisis it needs to be met first and foremost head on as such and that's why it is incumbent upon all Californians to continue to take our stay at home order seriously to continue to do the kind of social distancing that common sense dictates and heed the warnings we advanced yesterday to stay out of settings like beaches and parks where you're coming into close contact with others practice social distancing and we had to step up our enforcement yesterday as it relates to shut down those parking facilities a consequence to reinforce and remind people the series of moments but what more evidence do you need of a loss of a young person's life and so I just cannot impress upon the young people out there more the seriousness of this moment and how critical they are totally getting us on the other side by practicing that social distancing that we all are custom hearing but not in every case advancing individually by the way for those that are curious twenty six percent of individuals fifty to sixty four are represented in the twenty one hundred and two individuals that have been tested positive twenty three percent of all the other cases are represented in individual site north of sixty five years old hospitalization rates tend to skew higher and those cohorts but the number of positives again remains half eighteen to forty nine so broad strokes that's been up most of the day as it relates to operationalize in a lot of the work that we've been talking about the last number of days I had a number of conversations with governors across the country about protocols and procedures to better work collaborative Lee on procurement strategies we actually are lining up in linking together our procurement teams with other states to make sure that we're not competing with one another and we're making sure we are price conscience and dealing with the issue of price gouging up comparing best practices with state attorney generals are not just the work that the federal government's doing William Barr and others that we were pleased to hear announced yesterday so those are good conversations in those conversations we hope will be made real in terms of organizing a more deliberate and strategic way the procurement of the hundreds of millions of individual items that we need to procure and shields and gloves and gowns and coveralls and face masks and swabs and the like but we have testing numbers the testing has significantly increased across this country but also in the state of California tomorrow will be laid out the new numbers that we have received that will show a significant jump in the numbers we made public as we brought together all of these one off collection sites and all of the hospitals research universities that are participating as well as the private labs and will have a new process to collect those numbers in real time I had to make until like I think more comfort in numbers on the scale of testing is still not close to where we need to be we still need more swabs we still need more reagents these aren't extraction kits but we are seeing higher throughput and we're seeing new technologies coming up there were testing work with the FDA trump administration to get all the market one of his meeting with folks today that have a forty five minute test because the issue now is not just swabs in our extraction reagents it's about turning around the tests which are in some cases taking days and days and days some cases many of seven eight nine days and so we're gonna have to address the timeliness of the diagnostic and the test results as well again yeah because they have to iterate in this space as we moved from just public labs to those commercial quest and lab core now to needing specimen sample swabs in the media associated with that to now making sure we turn around the SAT test and a much quicker time but more on that tomorrow we also in closing I've done a lot on the ventilator side of things I mentioned yesterday the heroic work of Ilan musk came through on his promise to deliver over one thousand ventilators and that was announced yesterday we have brought in ourselves we just got another one thousand and ten ventilators are from the private sector working with managing others to convert that cash of five hundred fourteen ventilators that we had to refurbish them and to get them fully operational we have received from the federal government a no direct ventilators from the national stockpile Los Angeles county did receive one hundred and seventy and they have a unique relationship to the national stockpile but that's all we received within

Bouncing Back from Rejection
"Was just starting my career. I knew that to one day get tenure I had to be productive publish or perish. So early in grad school, I started submitting research papers to top journals the first one got rejected. So did the second experts in my own field were telling me that my work was not good enough. I wondered if I should drop out I've been working on a third paper. So I decided to give it one more shot. I spent months perfecting, it got feedback from more than a dozen leading thinkers and shipped it to our premier journal with that one got rejected too. Emailed the editor and asked if I could have another chance he said no that afternoon. In adviser told me to put it away in a drawer for six months and come back to it. Once the painted faded. I was appalled by didn't want to be the kind of person who couldn't face rejection. So I did the opposite. I spent the next three days at my desk in my pajamas subsisting on Robin noodles and take. I wrote the paper and send it back in the editor replied with four words. Dear Adam you win. A few months later. I had my first publication in a prestigious journal, the editor told me he didn't give me a second chance because he believed in my work. He gave me a chance because he saw me accept rejection. And then use it to improve my work. I ended up publishing plenty of papers. And getting tenure the make your name in the field hasn't really helped. We submit papers anonymously for blind review. And I still get rejected all the time. I've already had two papers rejected this year. One reviewer even wrote you should go back and read the work of Adam grant, dude, I am Adam grant. They're different ways to cope with rejection that can help you get through it. But they're also techniques for handling rejection that can actually make you stronger. In case. It's not clear yet. I'm Adam grant, and this is work life my podcast with Ted. I'm an organizational psychologist study how to make work not sucked in this show, inviting myself inside the minds of some truly unusual people they've mastered. Something I wish everyone knew about work. Today rejection and how it's possible to not just bounce back but bounce forward. Thanks to Hilton. I sponsor in this episode. I moved my entire life across to Manhattan, and I didn't know a soul on the east coast and I- maxed out every single credit cod. Move into my I should he hot sweaty apartment in Manhattan and showed up for work serve. Rob o'hagan was in her mid twenty s she's a native New Zealander and coming from a country where there are far more sheep than people. She'd always wanted to travel. She just landed her dream job in marketing for Virgin Atlantic. She jumped at the chance to work for her idol when I was in college, Richard Branson, and the regional vision ale lines had really ascended, and he just represented such a incredibly awesome anti-establishment view that I just personally really connected with and it didn't take long before Sarah was making waves at virgin, she pitched an ad campaign to Sir Richard himself. And it was a huge. Success? I just thought this is amazing. I can do no wrong. My career's just off to the races. How awesome is this? That campaign led to a big promotion to lead marketing for virgins music division in LA. So I take the job thinking that. I am the shit at this point, you know, I sort of stolman through the door like I've been hanging out with Richard braids. And here I am. This is going to be amazing and a year into it almost a year to the day. I walked into the office. And I still remember sitting down my coffee and popping up my computer. And there was a phone call that said, I should go to my boss's office. You know, when your boss, and your boss's, boss and HR is sitting in the room that it's it's not going to be good. There was no discussion of why it was happening. It was just your job is eliminated. You are getting one week severance pay and a one way ticket back to New Zealand because we have to get rid of your visa in other words, Arab legation to send you out of this country. That's how bad you. And I remember like being an absolute shock. I still get sort of pains bangs. I he remembering walking through this fucking office with everybody sitting at the desks, and as I'm walking out they like little prairie dogs with their heads popping over the tops of the cubes going who is this. And why is this loser? Being matched out of the office. And it's a just horrific feeling of I dunno you feel like a criminal rejection. It leaves us feeling incompetent and worthless. The pain of rejection often gets explained in terms of evolution in prehistoric times. If being rejected didn't bother you. You could end up on your own with no food and no group to protect you from being mauled by a tiger. Which would make it awfully difficult to pass on your genes. Even though rejection rarely has life or death consequences today. We're still wired to have those intense. Reactions neuro-scientists argue that rejection actually causes physical pain. There's a great demonstration of this in a cruel online game called cyber ball under computer screen, you're tossing a ball around with a few other players like a game of catch. But after a little while the other players suddenly stopped passing the ball to you. You've been excluded rejected by the rest of the grip. How would you feel? To find out neuroscientists scan
