Day 9 Divine Mercy Novena Mp3 audio & Text
"The Nevena to the Divine Mercy Danine today bring to me souls who have become lukewarm and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. These souls wound my heart. Most painfully my soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls. They were the reason I cried out. Father take this Cup away from me if it be your will for them. The last hope of salvation is to flee to My mercy most Compassionate. Jesus you are compassion itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of your most compassion at heart in this fire of your pure love let these tepid souls like corpses filled you with such deep loathing. Be once again. Set Aflame almost compassionate Jesus exercise the omnipotence of your mercy and draw them into the very our door of your love and bestow upon them the gift of Holy Love for nothing is beyond your power. Eternal Father Turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm sons who are nonetheless unfolded in the most compassionate heart of Jesus father of mercy. I begging the bitter past of your son by his three hour. Agony of the cross let them to glorify the abyss of your mercy.
How Your Expectations Can Stand In The Way Of Your Empathy #718
"There is one major thing standing between you and your ability empathize and that is your expectations. Greetings from ingredients from from Melvin Finally Roy last night after three hour delay but we got here looking over the beautiful flagstaff gardens here in Melbourne. So it's quite a lovely honest and empathy is is an interesting thing you know to me. It is probably one of the most important assets or skills that you can have in any sort of business really in life. I mean the ability to empathize with somebody. It gives you an ability to put yourself in their shoes in a way. And let's face it. People really care about themselves people care about what they want so your ability to understand where they're coming from. He's huge certainly in business. And I think like I said in general in life but there's one thing that really stands in the way of our ability to show empathy and that's how expectations because the problem is as we go into every conversation every relationship with an expectation. We think we know what the other person wants. We think we're empathizing but we're not we're actually doing is putting out patients on that situation on that person so if you can possibly go into a situation where say a business conversation whether it's a business relationship whether it's personal relationship without any expectations and it's really hard but if you can and I believe you've actually got a much better. Chance of being able to truly show empathy empathy. Because all you're doing now is putting yourself in the person's shoes in the other person's shoes so next time you're having issues really trying to understand somebody when you go into a meeting and you sort of hit that block understand. The problem is you've probably gone in with expectations. They haven't necessarily turned out the way you thought. And that's what's what's causing your ability to block that that relationship with that discussion that conversation so there is an empathy and expectations can co exist. What do you reckon. I don't actually think they really can't anyway would like to know what you think. Do let me know when the comments below. Thank you for your time and I will be back tomorrow so yeah.
Protesting the Birth of a Nation
"Most early films consisted of one real lasted around 15 minutes and caused a few hundred dollars to produce all of that changed in nineteen fifteen years of film called The Birth of a Nation a three-hour-long sago was released by director DW Griffith it instantly stood out as a technological and storytelling Marvel it also stood out as a Monumental piece of blatantly racist propaganda. The Birth of a Nation fixes a certain story of the Civil War and reconstruction in the minds of the American public and that story is just a black people were too lazy and ignorant to fully mastered the citizenship that they were offered by reconstruction Birth of a Nation really didn't have black people in it. So these people in blackface portraying congressmen who are obviously not ready for self-government portraying the idea of the rapists and these are all the stereotypes that are believed by many many Americans. The film was met with Fierce resistance from African-Americans particularly from a girl recently found an organization focused on the advancement of the race the n-double-acp one of the most important early wage. She lives of the n-double-acp was organizing Against The Birth of a Nation. They generated a lot of interest by protesting the film off doing a great deal of support from African Americans despite his best efforts. The n-double-acp couldn't persuade censorship boards or theaters to limit the film's reach. But the young organization gained National prominence because of this campaign that year membership almost doubled and that number would continue to grow long as it melted the fight against Jim Chrome those activists dissenting at the time and those dissenting voices were always there. They were there during the darkest periods of American history and remembering that tradition to me is almost more important than remembering the failures and the losses and the terrorism that black people faced. home
Ep. 339 - Causes not Symptoms
"The frito talk any more. They don't talk anymore. Hey, what can episode three hundred thirty nine of Trent three sixty five today is Sunday to four member sorted. You think thing today in a restaurant in Keio? We're had lunch. It was a box of cards on the table. And the first card was big black card that said talk put your phones down give you a wrist and just talk to each other. Look that kind of thing you see quite a bit in restaurants, these days, some people even say, we're not going to give you the WI fi password for the first hour or something. So you have to talk to each other. But what I like about this one is inside the box. Also had a bunch of conversation starters. So little questions like. If you knew the human lifespan was only forty years would you've lived your life differently. Or if you were a TV network, what would be on the show or another one. If you had the choice between being all you can eat and never gaining weight or only meeting three hour sleep. What would you choose? So I think it's a great example of business identifying a little niche, which is trying to create the conversation and liberty in the fact that a lot of people are aware that they spend too much time on the phones. But I think it's also great example of looking at the cause not just the symptom because for a lot of people sitting at a restaurant, particularly sort of I eight or I don't know any situation really that sort of know what to say that we anymore in a lotta ways we've lost the conversation. So when you looking at trying to solve a problem trying to think about what the root causes the probe of the problem is not just the symptoms, which you say in front of you because sometimes very diff. Already. That's just a thought. That's thanks for tuning in. We're back into the. The podcast. You just heard was published with anchor got something you want to say to the creator of the show, send them a voice message using the anchor up free for an Android.
Episode 143 - The Ultimate Agile Mindset
"We talk an awful lot about agile mindset. But you want to know what the ultimate agile mindset is. That's this week on the bad ass agile podcast. A. Team welcome to the Agile podcast I'm your host Chris Williams. Hello, everybody. Welcome back. Thank you as always for tuning. Even you know I talk a lot about beginner's mind. But beginner's mind does not just refer to emptying your mind of what you know every single day. It's much much more than that and as you can get at it, you can create an spread in preach the ultimate agile mindset. But first, let's remember why we're here. To create an elite tribe of leaders who truly serve their clients and communities by doing what matters and what works. Relentlessly chasing value excellence like about us. There's so many resources about what you need to do to be agile, but we're focused on who you need to become in order to lead teams. So let's hammer down those fundamentals to create a truly unique force in this industry and remember guys if this helps, you don't forget to tell your friends. Also, you can join us in the bad ass agile listener lounge. We have special previews, exclusives, live streams, and more links are in the show notes. Are In the field we talked so much about agile mindset that mindset frequently refers to things like trusting your team's being comfortable change being comfortable with failure, and all of those things are true. But if want the ultimate agile mindset, you gotta go a little bit further and here's the simplest way to get it every day when you get up whether you're walking into the office, the dialing into a bunch of meetings but each and every single day that you start, I want you to start over and by start over. I don't mean just forgetting what? No? No. I. Don't mean being open to new knowledge new teaching in new information but I want you to forget who you are. What do I mean by that? You need to forget your beliefs and you need to forget what defines you. Here's the thing to get better at agile. To truly innovate to truly disrupt. To continuously improve to crush your goals, you don't need more information you don't need to learn more stuff. If. Anything I often suggest that you have to tear it down and build it back up. Again, we have to get back to simplicity we have to get back to fundamentals, but if you truly. Want to hit new and increasing levels of success with agile. You have to change your story. You have to think about everything that you believe you have to change what you believe hold you back. You have to change your concept of who you are as an individual as a practitioner as a business as an enterprise. And you have to be ready to start fresh I want you to become a change artist someone who is continuously reinventing themselves. Someone who is continuously asking critical questions about what you believe what you do the rules that you live by and the stories that you tell yourself and I want you to disrupt them. I want you to blow them away. I. Want you to ask the question. What if these weren't true what could change if these were no longer my beliefs no longer my rules no longer my reality, but instead if I could create my own. Only give you some examples on how to do it. Let's start with your beliefs. You don't need to learn anything new about how You're really not doing it wrong in the first place. Is something you have bad knowledge, but it could be the things that you believe are holding you back from applying that knowledge. Here's some simple examples. Do you or your bosses believe. That you have to have dashboard reports ready every Monday mornings you can sit through a three hour meeting to review them. If you have that belief you're already bought into the fact that status reporting is going to cost you three hours a week every Monday without fail because you've already decided that you can't live without them. You've already decided that this is mandatory. You've already decided that if you don't have this information, you can't function you can't perform. But what if that weren't true? You don't even have to let go the belief yet just question it. What if that weren't true what could you do instead? How can I get the same outcome in fifteen minutes instead of three hours? You may even want ask how is this hurting us? Aside from the time that we spend, what is our laser focus on metrics? And measurable objectives do for us and do against us. Learned ask those hard questions and you'd be shocked at the quality of the answers that you get. Now. Here's where a little bit of courage comes in. If for a moment, you're willing to accept. That belief may not work for you. You can try and experiment you can take that what if? And turn it into a reality. What could you try this week? It's doable in fifteen minutes that will produce the same or similar outcomes as that dashboard or status meeting or Whatever it is that you think might be holding you back try it and see because once you've tried it. And delivered it and you put it into the hands of the nonbelievers. Now, you have proof now you've opened is now you're a change artist, the get it. You're someone who shows people the possibility of a different future. Next are your rules. Now rules you're like beliefs that are codified into practices. So, for example, if you can never start a new experiment with an extensive business case where a business requirements document. Once again asked the question. How does this rule hold us back? What could be possible if we didn't have this rule. Why do I have this rule? Where did it come from? Have I, accept it as fact when in reality it's just fiction. Could I let go of this? Could we once and for all be free of this rule that doesn't serve us? and. A funny thing will happen. If you ask your customer, your client, your employer, why do we have this rule? Where did it come from? How does it serve us? How do we know that it works? You'll often encounter a lot of confusion and a lot of blind defense of something that's possibly indefensible. Because we haven't really thought about it. We haven't really taken care to challenger. And it's so important that we do that. Because if you don't, you end up with all of these legacy rules for rules sake. But when you adopt this ultimate agile mindset of being a change artist, you can open people's eyes to the things that we do. On consciously unwillingly. Without good reason without good intention and if you've been following the Batta way for any length of time, you know how important intention envision is. All. Right. What about habits? Were habits are the rules that are not CODA fide. But there's something that you do because you've always done them. It's something that you learned absorbed and repeated until it becomes habitual but much like a rule in a belief. You may be doing long after it serves you. This one's particularly onerous because you have to look to find it. She was beliefs and rules. They're probably written down somewhere. They're probably obvious to other people. If, you have an outdated belief or an outdated rule you probably not the only one who knows about it. So you're probably not the only one who's complaining about it feeling the pain. But habits can be personal. Habit is something that's internal and personal to you to the person next to you. And one thing you need to know about habits is that no matter their origin. They serve you in some way. Some of our habits keep us from moving into areas that scare. US. For, example procrastination. If you have a big long preparatory ritual before you act before you move before you set out on your day. You may convince yourself that you preparing when in actual fact you're stalling. So in order to supercharge and become a change artist I, you've got to see it. You have to examine what habits do I have what things do I do routinely. These are different questions. The questions now are more like how do I spend my time? What did I do in between the moment that I decided to do something and the moment that actually did it You may have to log your time to examine how did you spend it? What did you do? In an over a matter of hours or days or weeks, patterns may become obvious to you of where your habits slow you down and don't serve you. But friends if you roll all of these together, your beliefs, your rules, your habits. In the composite you have what we call your story. That is what defines you what are the things that you think. The things that you do. In the rules that you live by that shape, your daily activities could these things use a shakeup? If you want the ultimate agile mindset. The answer had better be a resounding. Yes. Because only then can you begin to honestly ask the questions and honestly look at the answers The can open up the doors to real change to real agility. So don't wait try it this week tomorrow morning when you get up. Don't just start with a beginner's mind. That is the willingness to learn more to know more but take beginner's mind to mean you're prepared to revisit who you are. and start with a blank slate. Friends. Thank you very much for listening. You can reach out a bad ass agile dot com or find me on twitter at bad ass. Underscore agile a look forward to next time until then stay.

Ready! Set! No! Not Quite Yet!
"Yeah welcome to the speaker station. Were you discover presentation tips techniques and ideas that help you increase your impact influenced income in this episode? You'RE GONNA learn that all important step. You just can't skip although if you're like most people you want. What's that step rehearsing? Hello are you still there. I was afraid you might stop this podcast after hearing the word rehearsing. Let me ask you this. Do Your hersher presentations or do you rationalize not rehearsing them by saying to yourself. I know what I want to say so. I'm all set if you do rehearse. That's great but stay tuned because a little later in the show you'll hear five tips. That'll help your efforts. If you don't rehearse why not the most common answer I get to. This question is Peter. I just have so many things to do that. I just can't make the time. Are you really willing to risk your reputation when you give a presentation of the office and are you willing to lose sales to your competitors? Who did find the time to rehearse the presentations I hope? Not but that's exactly what's at stake because you listen. Earn TISSUE PAINTING. A compelling performance. Yes every time you present your performing so think about it from an audience point of view. How would you feel if you went to a Broadway? Plays opening night expecting a first rate performance and it was mediocre. Most likely you'd be disappointed to say the least in. How would you feel if it was obvious that the actors didn't rehearse that they didn't take the time necessary to deliver an experience? You had anticipated. Well it's the same when you or I or any present. It gets in front of an audience whether that audience is one person. Ten people are thousand people. That audience has expectations. And you and I have to meet if not exceed those expectations and I don't know about anybody else but I'm not talented enough or maybe just not willing to leave it to chance thing about the people you admire. Perhaps it's a musician or a singer. They rehearse maybe it's an actor we've already established that they need to rehearse it could be an athlete. They rehearse they just call it practicing and think about that for a minute. Professional athletes a- some of the best in the world at what they do and for most of them. They've been doing it since they were young. Yet they practice throughout their season and even during their off-season military police firefighters and I are sponsors or hers they just refer to it as training or drilling. I do understand that. People in these professions spend a great deal of time rehearsing no matter what they may call it because it's their profession in that unless you're a professional speaker delivering presentations makes up. Only a portion of what it is that you do nonetheless when you have a presentation to deliver. You should put aside the required time to rehearse. Recently I was talking to a client and I said to him John. Let's discuss the unsexy side of public speaking rehearsing before I could continue John. Who's a singer? Songwriter an ex high level. Soccer Player said to me Peter. You don't have to convince me about the importance of nursing. When I played soccer I never would have thought about playing without having practiced in as a musician. I always practice with the members of the band. We want to ensure that. We're so tight that we don't have to worry about being in sync that while we're on stage we can focus all of our energy on our audience. John's positive mindset. Let us move directly. Tips and techniques. And that's what you going to learn now. My first few helps you avoid one of the mistakes that most people make when rehearsing for presentation. Let's say you're halfway through your presentation and you make a mistake. Most people would go back to the beginning in start over. You don't need to do this in fact. I highly suggest you don't do this instead. Go back to the beginning of VAT part of the presentation and restart from there this way. You're not covering your opening twenty times and your closing the most important part of your presentation only two or three times with this said you want to and actually need to rehearse your entire presentation when possible. But they'll be times when you only have a few extra minutes and can focus only on a particular segment take advantage of that time. My second tip for you is to work on your message voice and body language before including slides and props if you have any doing so helps keep you from being overwhelmed by concentrating on too many elements at once my third tip for you is based on a rehearsal device that you already have in fact you probably have it with you right now. It's your phone and here's how you going to use it when you're ready to rehearse prop up your phone. Set It on video in hit record when you're done delivering your presentation review it but not necessarily in the way you're thinking the first time you play it back turn it over so you can't see the screen when you're listening to it make notes. Will you clear and concise? Did you pause enough or just ramble on? Did you use fillers? Did you speak too fast? Or maybe to slow. These are just a few of the things you want to listen for but I think you get the idea next. Turn your sound off and watch the video. What did you think of your body language? Did it look natural? Did you pace? Were you looking at the floor? Did your stance demonstrate confidence or nervousness? This is just a shortlist of the things you can evaluate. Be Sure to make notes as you go finally watching. Listen to the videos you normally would looking for anything else that you might want to build upon or change once you've done this make any necessary revisions and start the process all over again until you're satisfied. My fourth tip use to have a dress rehearsal. I know you're thinking really. I'm not going to be giving a major talk on stage. It's just going to be a presentation to the board while that may be but doing a dress rehearsal benefits you in several ways one. Is it solidifies in your mind that this whole thing is really happening soon on a lesson note it helps you decide if your choice of clothing is in fact what you want to wear on. Presentation Day my fifth tip. Few is when possible rehearsal. You'll be speaking. This helps you determine how and where you'll move during your presentation and not familiar with the location rehearsing there or even just getting to see it. Alleviates an unknown? Variable the environment. In which you'll be speaking now that you've learned these five tips that help you with your preparation. I'll answer a question that clients often ask I get the value of pursing but what if I rehearse and it still doesn't go well when he actually delivered my presentation for the first time. My answer is this with very few exceptions when you deliver your presentation to your audience is shouldn't be the first time you deliver it instead when you believe it's ready you deliver to family friends colleagues asking for their input now. Their advice may or may not be useful. And that's okay because your objective at this time is to simply present in front of Hollywood would say a live audience. One of my clients. Lauren is a perfect example of this several years ago. I had the pleasure to work with her. Of course she'd be presenting to business people. We broke the three hour cost into segments concentrating on one segment per week when we met for the second time I asked her to present the first segment she nailed from knowing and understanding the content to using her voice body language to support that content to engaging her audience. She surpassed all my expectations in fact she did this week after week. And it wasn't long before the only thing that would've surprised me was if she had not knocked it out of the park when we discussed her preparation she explained Peter. I rehearsed for several hours a day. Then I presented it to my cat twenty three times and once I felt confident enough. I presented it to family members. Making adjustments along the way now. Lauren not only teaches that costs but she's also regarded as a captivating public speaker delivering presentations to business audiences of all sizes when people learn that. I'm Lawrence Coach often complement me and I appreciate that but I am in no way responsible for the foundation of her success. It's her desire to work behind the scenes. The work that most people never see the work that ultimately benefits her listeners. My hope for you whether you're speaking on stage presenting meetings or selling to prospects is that you develop a mindset of doing all that's necessary in order to deliver engaging and compelling presentations and this of course includes rehearsing. This brings us to the end of this episode of the Speaker Station. There'll be another one soon until then you can get more tips techniques and ideas by subscribing wherever you. Listen to your favorite podcast. Be Happy and healthy my friend.
Prayer When you Ask and Do Not Receive
"Hello and thank you for joining us. This is the truth about everything. Podcast we defined truth as those things that enlighten us. So hopefully this podcast will give you something to think about this season. Two episode five ask and you shall receive. Were discussing. What prayer is and what is the reason that sometimes we ask yet. We do not receive ask and you shall receive a call to prayer. It is an invitation to communicate with God to engage in holy conversation by requiring man to ask pray in order to receive be blessed. It shows that God is interested in what we have to say and is willing to respond. Ask and you shall receive as a statement that suggest without asking without verbally expressing our needs and desires guy were not respond and what is desired would not be received therefore asking religious prayer is essential to being blessed. This is the common understanding. But what about? The apiarists engage in religious prayer. Because they don't believe there is a guy to ask nevertheless. They managed to obtain their desires APPs. Enough religious prayer APPs enough belief in God they steal receive. Why is this the asking has to be something other than religious prayer but what what happens when you ask as a dedicated religious person but do not receive when you put in the work to pray every day fasting in Saturating your mind with sacred texts and religious practice in your prayer? Steel go unanswered. Could it be that? There is a disconnect with God on your part somewhere in there no because God is the life force of everything that exists and all that exists exists because of God. All things are dependent on God for life so a disconnection from God resorts a disconnection from existence itself so if asking and receiving is not based on religious prayer a connection with God or religious activity and service then it must be based on practicing the correct religion again. Not Quite throughout human history. We have worshipped many strange gods. We have caught ourselves. God's denied God but still have asked and received people in ancient times axed and effectively received while worshiping animals trees rocks and their kings as God manifested in the flesh. They sacrificed children to appease guide in started wars slaughtering people in the name of God yet. None of these views. No matter how blasphemous malicious or foolish have resorted and the inability to receive. What has been asked for? Fear religions claim to be the only true way to God and their followers do receive what they act but soda believers of every other religion caught in belief system. Therefore religion cannot be the basis of receiving. What one acts for? Regardless if you believe in God or not pray or not. We are constantly communicating with God. But not with words or through religious practice but with the contents of our heart prayer is done. According to what is at our core our essence the truth that resides in our hearts our thoughts our beliefs and intentions expressed the condition of our heart. They are the voice that speaks for the heart and the only legitimate prayer and method of communication in which we speak to God. We are eternally engaged in prayer communicating with God and asking according to the condition of our hearts and the quality of our thoughts and beliefs. You may pray for peace but if your heart is full of anger and frustration. You're essentially asking for more anger and frustration not peace. You may pray for prosperity but if your thoughts are full of lack of limitation you're asking for poverty. The problem is we're praying for one thing with our mouths but asking for another with our hearts. The prayer of the heart is truthful. It will always be heard and I'm not talking about manifestation this is not manifestation a good heart full of positive thoughts strong beliefs in things. Working out does not guarantee that things are going to always work out. God is awesome Italy the one that decides what is received when we ask we can manifest whatever we want when we want how we want simply by thinking. Positively about prayer is an act of submission. It means one is without the ability to obtain what is desired. Emma seek a higher power and is at the mercy of that higher power to grant. What has been asked for now when I was five? I love Oreo cookies and milk. But I couldn't get into the cookies without my parents help. I had to ask in order to receive. I didn't receive simply because I asked in confidence. I received at the wheel and according to the of my parents so in the same way we may have positive thoughts and believes but it is at the discretion of God to respond. Allow us to receive regardless view acknowledged. God or not. The dialogue is defined as prayer any dialogue. You have prayer is not limited to spoken words or religious practice communication with God of any kind is wholly due to the nature of the one that you are communicating with so we base divine communication on simple words alone which are nothing more than a collection of sounds that we have given definition to. How can the same common mundane words and language? We use every day to do. Trivial tasks like joke with friends make means for social media in instruct our pets be the key to conduct in a conversation with. God that extends beyond the physical world into the unknown. Authentic prayer is not done with words but with the heart as we speak our truth through our most sincere thoughts in strongest believes we could only communicate with God who is automate truth. According to truth which is the contents of our hearts when we ask God responds and Truth to what is truthful and are asking the contents of our hearts. This sincere prayer to God is not according to words but according to the voice of our hearts there is nothing special about words themselves that allow them to empower. Prayers are not essentially truthful. They can be used to manipulate to hurt and divide. Their authenticity fluctuates based on the intentions of the speaker. One man says I love you to express a sincere deep meaningful love for his wife while another man says I love you to take advantage of a woman. Words are simple vehicles of communication the same as body movements facial expressions in hand gestures all of these twos in our subject to mess application lead into confusion and a breakdown in communication so we can't put trust in our words as being the key to a offense prayer because words are empty shales that require filling with life intention and purpose the words you use to communicate with God only as powerful insincere s to heart. That SPEAKS THEM. So we see that ask and you shall receive has more to do with what's in our hearts the condition of our heart. Our thoughts in our believes. It has more to do with that than it does what we are saying. You know we can say what we want manipulating words an people to our advantage but there is no manipulation of the heart. What's in the heart does not hide? It fully exposes you. It is laid bare for all to discover that search. The heart of a person tells the true full story of who what they are. A woman who was an a dedicated athlete will use her body in a different manner than a man. That is not the athlete will push ourselves beyond limits in pain suffering in order to master her crafting condition her body. Her heart is in the sport and it drives her to go harder than any person that may say they're dedicated yet. They do not have the passion and tenacity to put in the work that she does. She practices differently performs differently and has a higher degree of appreciation for the sport because her heart is in it. Being an athlete on this level cannot be faked. If is not in you. If it's not who you are to your core at your core you will never be able to achieve. What a person who has driven by their heart can accomplish. The Voice of our hearts is manifested as our thoughts and believes these thoughts represent who we are and what we deeply believe. The average person has about fifty thousand thoughts day. That's two thousand eighty three hour and around thirty five thoughts every minute so we are literally praying constantly throughout the day even in our sleep every moment that we have breath in our bodies we are engaged in a holy communication with God. We were built to be prayer warriors. Castellini engaging in conversation with guy constantly praying to key to a powerful meaningful prayer is becoming aware of what we're asking for so let's begin to pay attention to the conditions of our hearts in the thoughts and beliefs that speak for higher hire her.
Do Singapore Airlines Flights To Nowhere Make Any Sense At All? #1018
"Singapore Airlines is offering flights to no way doesn't make any sense at all. ooh. Singapore. Airlines. Have announced today to start offering flights to no way quite literally a three hour flight to know where you take off from Singapore, airport and land in the same place three hours later, just flying around in sky now to be fair packaging with limo transfer and hotel stays and a few other things to make feel like you going on holiday but of course. At the end of the day you really not and so the question is doesn't make any sense at all because there's a fair chance. They're not gonNA make any money out of these. They might break even at best but they're probably not gonNA make a lot of money because let's face it who's going to pay a heap of money just to fly around and go nowhere. But this two things that make it make sense to me first of all the planes of sitting date on the ground anyway, they don't do anything. So you might as well use them even if they breaking even and you're also keeping people employed is three things you're also keeping people employed. So you keeping some of the team on and the third thing is you'll keeping the brand fresh in people's. Minds. Not that anyone's ever going to forget Singapore Airlines but it is a chance. I think to Kinda continued experience with the brand. Now, they're not the first airline to do it I. Think Either Ed did it I think a few other people doing it and apparently the ones in with eva air have had some reasonable success not sure how successful it's going to be. It's obviously a bit of A. Novelty to short-term thing but it's an interesting approach i. mean the crucial can offer a cruise to nowhere they literally going out doing short cruises and then coming back. But the difference is, of course when you're on a cruise ship, there's a lot more to do as opposed to sitting on applying. There's not a lot to do the same netflix movie that you could probably watch on your ipad on the. Couch. So there is Singapore Airlines flights to no way not sure. I would actually be doing a flight to no way but then are flying enough fillets people that don't fly a lot. Maybe it's an interesting thing. What do you think? Would you do a flight to no way? Let me the comments blow already that is it today I do think if your time and I will be back again tomorrow.
What To Expect From Podcast Movement 2019 [Episode 211]
"Podcast movement twenty nineteen starts this week and i will be in attendance every single day. Here's what you can expect aspect hello and welcome to another podcast pontiff vacations with me ego tara tara. This is the week podcast movement twenty nineteen. I'm kind of excited. I'm really kind of excited. I was the keynote speaker. I guess i i should say i was a keynote speaker at podcast movement two thousand and fourteen so it's been five years and i am looking forward to you're going back and attending podcast movement in case you are new is the largest podcast conference that we have started by some friends of mine and going very strongly being orlando and i'm attending but i'm only attending which is honestly kinda weird normally when i attend various podcasting events. I am there as a presenter. I am on stage doing something but not not this time this time i get to explore and enjoy the conference as any old podcast or who just happens to show up and i'm i'm looking forward to that. It will be a new experience for me so i was debating what to do with the program here podcast pontificate because the last tom i took a break about half my listeners freaked out because episodes didn't show up in their feet every time and also i don't want to try and do episodes of podcast modifications while i'm at podcast movement because it's a two and a half to three hour job to put out an episode which i'm not complaining. It's just what it takes. I time i don't wanna take that away from the conference. So what i'm going to do instead is i will still bring you episodes every single day. Well you'll get episodes tuesday wednesday thursday of this week in nothing on friday obviously as is my wont but you will get episodes but what i'm going to do is kind of distill down each day yeah. I know no that sounds boring. Lots of people do that to give you a rundown of what's happening at the show but the whole reason i'm going to podcast movement twenty nineteen is to be on the lookout just like i talked about in the last episode. I'm attending this con- this conference to find new exciting things advanced podcasting and i want to bring those to you so that's my promise to you. I will come to you every single day with the rundown. Maybe it's technology. Maybe it's a tool. Maybe it's a person that is advancing podcasting that i have discovered at podcast movement two thousand nineteen. That's the plan. That's what i will be doing every single day so so that's it also <hes> no video if you already person who watches the video of me as i do this there will be no video this week when i get back and i'm in my studio with my lovely lights weights and all that i shall come back into the video. You don't really care about the video. Most people do not care about the video but nonetheless a handful do <hes> so no video this week and also no super detailed right up. If you aren't yet unaware if you only listen you can click through not not this episode click through any of the prior episodes searched the episode details page and you'll get a fifteen hundred word blog post to accompany that which i take my actual words and rewrite them into written form so that people can consume them with their eyeballs opposed to their ear holes but i'm not doing that this week because because again that's part of the two and a half ish or so hours it takes to put these episodes together so none of that just quick bonus material so this this is the base episode of two one one episode two one one. The rest will be bonuses as they go out. That's what's going on. If you're going to be podcast movement i told you last time. Get in touch with me please. He's do get in touch with me. A lot of people have reached out and said hey. Let's get together but i've got plenty of room for more if you would just walk up to me and say hi that works too. I know a lot of people who are going to be there. I happy to introduce you around. It's gonna be fun so come. Join me podcast movement. I really enjoy it and <hes> with that that i'm going to sign off early because i shall be back tomorrow. Live from orlando florida killing you. The best things that i encountered counted on the first day of pod cast after his traveled a podcast movement until next right here on podcast onto vacations cheers <music>.

One Week Break - Aug 26, 2019
"The best laid plans are great until somebody punches you in the face or something like that. Yeah it happens to podcasters to hello and welcome to another podcast pontificate with me ego tara. I'm going to disappoint oh you today because this isn't a real episode. This is just a the. I'm not making episodes this week episode so you can quit listening now. If you want or you can listen to tell you you why it is that i am taking a week off from making episodes <hes> basically a couple of reasons and this is going to happen to you as a podcast eventually you will just have to make these hard decisions and i made the decision today that i'm not putting at episodes this week just this week just this week as for a couple of reasons one. I have a couple of brand new clients new clients and they need some immediate attention like like now and to be honest. I feel like i've been i've been neglecting them and <hes> that's what's that i can't do that in a in a long so i need to go and focus on on those clients get into the launch stage where they need to be second. I've got a presentation that i said yes to last last week. I'm very happy to say yes to that. Presentation actually was a couple of weeks ago but i am not ready for its in in all honesty. I am not ready for it and if you've ever seen in me speak on stage you know that i have to be ready for it. I have to have the entire thing memorized before. I'm happy and so so that's gonna take all of my creative brain all of my thinking brain i need focused on clients first and second this presentation but the good news is the presentation on wednesday and then it's all good. I got this crazy trip to kazakhstan coming up. I'm going to kazakhstan for a week in the middle of september to talk about podcasting and and i don't wanna leave you guys hanging without an episode without episodes that we need a plan for that. Take time. I need to take the time to plan dan for that. I told ed ryan from the podcasting business journal get an article to him next week of new and for their print version of the podcast business journal no haven't even started the outline on that yet not even a little bit so yeah. I'm a little behind and the the good news is all these things will get done what they would get done even if i did an episode every day this week of podcast pontificate but one of them would suffer the thing i'm trying to get done or this show and i don't want either to scheffer to suffer or shafir either of those things. I don't want any suffering taking place so i'm taking a break because as you probably know or maybe you don't know <hes>. This is a three hour per episode job i. I only wish i was kidding about that. It is not a three hour per episode job. I begin at six in the morning by the time it's finally published. It's nine not kidding. Just how long it takes to produce one of these episodes when i did the little mini episodes from podcast movement you might remember. I thought well those will be fast. I'm not doing the full right up. I'm not doing the video work. That's goes out with that so that'll be a lot faster. Yes took an hour and a half. This'll take me an hour to put this little five issues so minute. I'm not making podcast episodes this week episode live. It just takes time in the process. I've got could i do it faster sure but i want to write things that are right. Take time and it takes time to do this one right so that's what's that's. What's going to happen here so so yeah nothing this week from me. I'll still be active on the twitter's clearly but you won't have podcast episodes. My my goal is to have a good plan for the miniseries for next tweak. I've got a variety of topics here but they're kind of scattered. I need to put him in organize them into a theme so i can figure out what might chose are going to be about for their coming episodes. My goal is to get that figured out so that i'm crept for next week and i have a good solid continuation after that 'cause i'm out of not how ideas i'm just. I'm just out of organization and i need to get there so inap- also keep in mind if you're listening to this live that monday coming up the first of september whatever that is that's memorial day memorial day labor day you know i'm back in america for a little over a year now and already forgotten the holidays that must be labor labor day memorial day's my anniversary right labor day's coming up so we know show on that monday of labor day obviously in observes the holiday.

Dr steven green were you'll discover actionable strategies to help your student to reach their academic goals to excel at standardized testing into planned for the college admissions process painlessly and now here's your host dr tur- stephen green. Hey everybody welcome back to make the grade podcast really really really. I want to start out by just thanking everyone for all the support. Everyone has been subscribing sharing the podcast really appreciate it every time <hes>. I hope somebody listened to a podcast. They are learning something an action. They can take whether it's a parent or a student in action. They can take to help improve their academics help improve their educational experience help improve their testing all this so every time this shared every time more people hopefully given access to the podcast. It's collectively improving proving. Everybody's ability to do this so thank you again today's topic because it is at least where i am recording. This late august is back to school. This is the back to school special effects that might be one of a series emphasized yet. I'm going to do it because i always have a lot to talk about. I don't wanna talk too long at once so as i always say if you're interested everything in this podcast is also available through p._d._f. You just have to go go to my facebook page which is make the grade or my personal page dr steven green and just basically ask say you'd like the p._d._f. The f. for the back to school podcast where you go to the website which is make the grade dot net and a lot of ways to contact their so. Let's get down onto it. Member theme of the make three pasta podcast is actionable things things you can do you can do as a parent or student to improve your academics education. You're testing so number one. When you going back to school number number one be organized be organized. That's number one and honestly i could probably stop right there but the organized have things ready to go. No your schedule. No your classes know who your teacher or teachers are anticipate. What's going to happen. Have your notebooks ready. Have your folders ready. You could get this into greater detail for example sample. You can color code no books you have math in blue and science and read in history in yellow and whatever <hes> you have different sections within larger notebook. Some schools have lists. They have procedures that they want you to follow but basically the point is day one when you go to school your first day of school be organized and be prepared. This is critical. I cannot tell you how much i can stress this because it is so much easier to get and stay with the class that is to try to this when you fall behind and you have to catch up so number. One is be organized number. Two is plan plan ahead to be a lot of things that you're gonna have to look at and do the next day do a few days later do a week later. She want to anticipate any kind of issue or any kind of challenge that you're going to have it might be academic and might be scheduling. It might just be enough time so let's talk about the academic democ challenge. Maybe historically have always had trouble with math may not doing poorly. It's just work. It's a lot more work for you so this is something to anticipate so maybe early early in the school year. You've a conversation with the teacher and say listen. Math is not my strength. I'm really working hard trying but i just wanna make sure if i need extra extra help. I have the ability to do that and you can set the stage for these sorts of things in terms of anticipating other challenges like timing. Maybe you're an athlete. You're in season and you're going to school and you have practice for three hours after school and it's just a time crunch so plan ahead and anticipate these issues and challenges in -ticipant assignments you're gonna have you know you're going to have homework. It's a reality of life in school. Just is so make sure you have your system to this homework done. Do you have a good system to keep track of your work which i call information management so we're gonna talk about a little bit yeah so you have to have your assignments. You have daily plan or you're going to be proactive. Are you going to take action to get things done. Not wait till it comes at you. So one view organized to plan ahead no number three hour basis on the things in my book in maximum education maxim education dot net <hes> also available on the website but this is a these the core things here number one. You have to manage your time. I touched a little bit about a minute ago but managing time involves a lot of levels. There's layers here so you have short term things you have long term things your challenges each day challenge tweak. You need to be able to look ahead and heavy system to do that well effectively and efficiently. Your system may be different than anybody else system. It doesn't make a difference as long as you have. One that works number two is information management so make sure you've waited manager manager formation. I talked about the coloring notebooks color coding of the notebooks taking us whether you're gonna take notes on paper with you're going to do it online and some cloud based platform platform. Does it matter you have to have a system. You can get a lot of information does america we could be in first grade fifth grade eleventh grade college does make a difference a lot of information nations going to be putting your direction as school begins. You need dabbagh daily success action. Plan is a combination of managing your time nine managing your information and bringing it all together every day so every day you're going to go to school. You're gonna come home. You're gonna say hey here's what you gotta do one two three four five six seven whatever here's one it's due tomorrow next day next day next week. You can have a system to put that altogether which is basically basically exactly wanna. Do you wanna have a singular daily success action plan that creates long term academic nick success now that could be specific cases for <hes> many things. Maybe you have particular priorities in science class. Were math class. Were there may be no memory school or middle score high school. They're going to be kind of <hes> separate individual things for each student and these are things. You have to count as well. It's not really the topic of the stricker podcast getting into that but these are things. I would certainly early certainly encourage you to consider so let me just give you one example song. I'm trying to be clearly. Let's say you're you're transitioning from elementary school in the middle school where you're transitioning from middle school into high school. Those are middle school into college. Those three transitions are really really really big and can be stressful to new building often new set of teachers sometimes elementary school. You've got way more students there because middle schools combined combined elementary schools into one building. Sometimes high schools combined multiple middle schools into one building obviously going to college a completely new experience if you're living there for for sure so this is another set of circumstances that you are gonna have to address and it it's important to be prepared prepared for this. You can't prepare for every single thing but you wanna think about t- what's what am i going to have to do. What's going to be different. What might have worked last year. That may not work this year okay. There may be circumstances. Certain classes like i was mentioning before maybe math maybe science maybe history. Maybe maybe english are just historically problematic for you so knowing that address it ahead of time. Okay have a system to try to address grasset so this has been a little bit rapid fire because again my goal always in the make degrade podcast is to give you as a parent or student. Thanks you can pause the ipad or whatever you're listening to this on and actually say yeah. I'm gonna go do that now or gets done. I'm going to do that now and not that's.

Ep119: The Fear of Reaction
"So sometimes lonely and inspiration can often come from really weird places we pick up where the bullet point blogs and the highlight It's amazing how many people start a conversation with me with the words I'm sorry business is messy and unpredictable so here's my story and today Jodi has a story about what I think is every parent's dilemma that turned into a really interesting conversation about business and communicate urgent care and all she has this headache and the really high fever and the funny thing about this story the thing that I think will tie into a very fascinating business thing is when you re Shen and honesty and barriers you may never even have known exist and speaking of barriers which this isn't wind but that was lame segue we're sitting there and urgent care my daughter has a fever of one hundred four point five and I am still somehow worried that they're going to be like it's one of those moms who brought I mean this is the like one or two point five which is you know not yeah that's a fever but we were at a place where I couldn't give her more motrin yet so it comes the moment where I can give her more Motrin Act and when when you don't and win something is overreaction because I don't know how universal this is but I've talked to several moms in the last few days and they were all like Oh my God yes that if you'd like to have less barrier to know anyway if you're liking this show please Telephoned share with someone post about it somewhere we are in service of our celebration approach has I know exactly that she has not even technically a fever it's like ninety nine point one and then it was ninety nine point five but she came into the office because she had a really bad headache because I don't even think you need to go now but so we give it to her and then an hour later forty five minutes later my expectation is it will be tanking at this point will come down from there it's one o four point five the next morning like one zero one point four in the morning so definitely a fever definitely staying home from school all good I decided to work from home that day and then most of the day our fevers doesn't really matter anyway to make a very long story short they ruled out strap they took a bunch of bloodwork they checked appendicitis they kept checking things she had this tiny bit of a call Mary you know I I don't rush my kids to the doctor the first time they have a little fever you know fever purpose I've been around the block it's like you know throw some Motrin see how they do whatever so being last Wednesday was my daughter's first day of school back so I school last Wednesday Thursday afternoon at two two thirty I get a call from the school nurse that origin Karen of course of course the timing of all this is it's now like six o'clock so I can't call her real doctor which maybe I should've called earlier but this is kind of the whole point to this story so we of what how you make those decisions and ultimately if it had been nothing and they sent us home with nothing because you know certainly if it's a virus you don't throw antibiotics here's intimate I still had I kept finding myself wanting to say things like you know I have a seventeen year old son arrigo establishing that I have a long record and I've never oh so you know every parent listening is probably like Oh yeah but that's reality for real thing so here's the funny thing it was really clear to me that it was time to go no nobody wants to be that mom that that you know goes rushing to the doctor it's nothing it's why you try and sort of figure it out in advance because you want them to be like well sorry just a virus I know this is not an ad for Motrin Ibuprofen and I give it to her so at that point it's one zero three point five which now has my attention has my attention shouldn't of our birthday month we are looking to add more people to our community so day so here's my story fat that funny thing of whether it's a different set of dynamics of when something happens in your business or on your team or even for yourself you can WanNa react this is not normal she knew that that Kaya was there but not faking it there I mean she was there for a reason no in fact the nurse said your mom can come and get you if you want and she's like no no when there were there were red flags but they're small tiny little red flags and they weren't really too far up the mast rain but she knew that obviously off it wasn't even a cough is more just like a clear your throat dry throat kind of thing and so the doctor said you know just just as a precaution do you mind if I take a chest x ray all it when you decide that a thing as a thing and you have to take action versus when you Kinda hold back and wait and risk regretting not acting sooner and that whole dynamic frankly I was a little bit like oh come on that's she doesn't even have a cough and he had listened to her chest nothing turns out she had double pneumonia which is real serious not a small deal it's not you it's me that the the break-up line and that's that's kind of for me that's the filter trying to figure out is this thing I'm perceiving the last note that I wrote down was the fact that you said that it was six o'clock so you can't call your doctor what that means is that your ability to communicate with them products you like why won't people to be safe but was this just like a random event I don't WanNa go screaming the sky is falling if this was a one off thing like Wang you call Asian care or recommended that you rush pitch but you recognize the red flags and so she thought okay it's worth mentioning the second thing I wrote down was I always think of Seinfeld when I think of this but it was the right thing for them or did was there a miscommunication in that I don't have to fix the job I should really communicate the job buddy who matters is automatic is limited at that point so you're making a you're forced to make this decision in your case it's patient care or more but then you know this dynamic of well I don't want to be a personal overreacted to this thing I mean I've often thought about how this works recalls and things like something happens do that if at that time of the day if the answer was you need to get this checked out he would have suggested that I go to one of two ers I didn't want home 'cause you sort of feel like an idiot for some reason I don't know why because no one expects us to be the medical professional condescend completely then that's what feel so hysterically at I kept fighting his funny I'm ghetto days almost over just WanNa let you know you're probably going to have an evening your gums and so fair enough done and and this will be kind of the point a story I'm a whole situation with the company or is it just is it just the individual who's not handling this well or who's not dealing or does that is just beyond good they we could do the x rays right there they at the end of the day when she needed antibiotics and his special cough medicine just like they have an answering service I can call the leave a message either he or the other doctor will call me back they'll triage questions that I've used that many times when it's appropriate but I knew here's what's interesting patient I going back to some other episodes we have have taken the art of like making it easy and the customer experience to a level plug thing and they put a little like handmade label in the top that says phone charger and then they actually have this one cable plugged in that at the end of it fight or let's say that somebody quits in your organization that just want to find something else and for my situation when so if somebody gives me notes I want to think well is there something that that I eight to fix in my farm because this person who I thought was really good laugh or was it one because it wasn't the right fit not that they're defective or deficient person better than the men's candidate so I wanted so I wrote that it's not you it's me it's it's kind of figuring out whether it is us or whether it's it's limited to this take it that I didn't think was going to be where we went but I will add another layer that I considered having a separate episode at some point that makes it really interesting drew because I can call my doctor it's interesting to me is the fact that you got to a point where in terms of trying to triage is this a real thing or is this something that I can handle oxygen thousand times uh-huh because I've been taking notes as you've been watching that and they're gonna read my list so the first thing that I wrote down which I thought was really important was the nurse called WanNa stay that that's the case but the nurse the nurse called you even though because she perceived red flags but the nurse wouldn't have rushed ever rushed to the hospital for for fever before like I kept wanting to say things and then I did say a couple things sort of like that and the guy just sort of looked at me like okay whatever like nine don goals of every kind of of like electronic charger you can possibly imagine because they recognize if you're there waiting and you're there may be longer than you thought you'd be whatever you're making that decision isolation as opposed to talking about it which means that when you finally went to patient I you needed to they had it right there they handed it to me I didn't have to go anywhere else to more layers to that they they came in one time the guy just came to get something he was like are you cold honey and she's like yeah it's a little cold something that that the added stress of your phone running out of batteries is just something you don't need and probably ultimately makes there is less pleasant notre at home in isolation in other words you have to figure out whether it's serious enough to communicate with somebody else actually so this'll be a fascinating me but the right I mean you have a right to choose and it's good that you know what options you would choose if something goes south right if it's not going to be the Motrin thing but here he comes back with not just a blanket a heated blanket like it's like out of the out of the I said or those right out of the dryer he goes no we just keep them in unlike you you don't go calling neurosurgeon every time you have a headache I mean like that's really clear but between doing nothing and perceive this or didn't understand or whatever so I wanNA know that a symptom of a thing or is it a route what is it so if there's somebody who's really decided coldly overreacting there so many steps along the way where you have to decide like is this appoint where I reach out to somebody or is this a point where it should stay in own circle of care kind of well that's so that's where I really think the importance lies because I think that it's important to have people around in 'cause then they're just really soothing and top it off they have added and I think this is kind of new the plug right beside with a little bed is they put in they changed it to like a four then if the worst thing that happens the worst thing that happens in their world is I tell them you really don't have to worry about that your several steps away from anything happening and and it's the and there's no reason that person should feel silly worrying about that I know that's why it's so inane that that I worry so much about being but but I have vetted this not not in order to my bonding agent because I think there might be a problem but I'm not sure if there's a problem on this project and and I hear so many bonding agents say where's your advocate call us and we can tell but there were so many barriers to if I called my regular doctor versus dislike smooth if I went to patient I it would all be like easy and when people call me and they know that I've set up my business model to be able to address any too but it's amazing how many people start a conversation with me with the word in your case medical or legal or accounting or banking or or what have you where the perceived level of seriousness before you talk to them is brought in is also a a thing I catch myself doing all the time where before I will reach out to an expert about a thing I want to try and figure it out myself I as it late night fine with that but it's just kind of a funny thing I thought I'd it's so I'm going to because there are so many things that come up and online I'm actually going to itemize my list of just going to read have both gone to massive links to organize our business models in a way that I won't force as people but like eases the path for that we don't get those calls that we should be getting well that's really funny because I hadn't thought about this but it is probably why issue spun up for me is that you and I David there was a thing I do think that this is now feels like Jodi psychotherapy or something I do think is interesting thing it certainly happens a lot in the medical field phone I get what I need well first of all it makes it seem like whether I have pneumonia I just need a spa day feather I which really never occurred got it but in talking about this the last few days 'cause she's currently sick right now with other moms you've checked in with me they've all been like Oh my God me too I hate to look like that mom that like Russia's there on clients and there's a monthly fee I took those out so that your only choice is to call me when you have a problem because even if we meet once a month regularly people still has would probably love it if I call like they probably want you to call you know whenever you have a concern may be making that assumption but there's been no es go to those two yards and I would prefer to go to urgent care patient I that I tend to go to and not that I couldn't have made that choice but then I had to say no no I'd rather go here and took call us at the early I mean that's why I stopped his why you have your empty hourglass program is why I stopped having hardly any we meet once a month appointments like if you if you're one of my on a number of steps so you don't because you must see this all the time like if I see it for my talk show us all the time and you know even if that's the right chain of events which is not election I mean there's some there's some personal yeah there's some first level triage to do a thing just to and that's sort of the point of this question message right before I go into a three hour meeting 'cause I don't know how to time when he's going to call back so it's just it's just it's complicated so they don't eat thing about in fact it's off hours you know you have to call you have to leave a message then interestingly then I have to worry about when he calls back because I don't want to not answer when he calls back so I'm not GonNa Call Me Oh they enter that of course I was super happy that that we went and then I felt validated I was like Z. I took it was a good parent but I but ever since then I was thinking about you hey this happens a thousand times really just take care of it but it's not a big deal and end the bonding agents are good ones lament to me a lot I metaphor here sort of like my leadership team of parents and you know we're we're partners in the parenting thing here he is somebody who I think it's kind of a subconscious thing because he certainly take a cool bath and see if that helps but what's funny is having somebody say that meant it was just like another hurdle because I was already struggling with my own sort of ill weird and if people didn't quote unquote bother me with this this is what I'm here for frankly just would like to do I like to serve as general I like it when people call me with us and is not worried about that thing let's just so to what you're talking about if one of your clients is having a legal issue in their little bit worried but they're all sitting there around a table just hurts he's like why are you not at the ER advert go turn out to be nothing but but he especially with the kids I think this is my say that if at any time before you have your scheduled next oil change appointment you need a top off you come in and we do it for free Jiffy Lube Franchisees they say what we really wanted to do was have people kind of view us as their go-to mechanic we're not really path to enable me to call sooner and what's interesting is to add another layer to it just kind of funny so my husband who if we're making this sort of journal dialogue than I'd say like no I think it's time like it so when you have other voices around you her saying this isn't the L. let's let I don't think it's time to get Eliot involved yet and so they think that involved just like on a medical field involved means well we have to prepare for surgery or involved means I have to go into litigation and it's not that I think about this with with other business so one business you can tell me whether this is strained in off point or whether this is I'm sorry with the sort of other I'm like this I went on away and then and then people would would finally call me just text me like you have a couple of minutes can we do this and that that has worked really well but tobacco my pediatrician kid to the dinosaur oh nothing and so in business you know you you're like well Jeez it so I do a lot of construction as you know and and people say you know what I don't want to call mine is what I think it is so you take Jiffy Lube Jiffy Lube in some of these quick change oil places they went to a model where they'll change your oil but those they have to get over that people have with the bank if I call my banker banker than I have a concern or God forbid I tell my banker that with certain things it's like oh we need to go to the doctor for that The time that I was having weird chest pains right before I was leaving for an international trip for a week and I was like Oh my Mike diagnosis just wants things to be okay so much that like she sitting one hundred four point five fever and I was like I think I'm going to go to urgent care and he's like well why don't we just and therefore I'm not a good risk and I'm not a good client and so they're going to land on me with both feet and so there's this there's this emotional baggage that a lot of business owners have have a lot of good friends who are are bankers and they really want the businesses their business plans to call them and to consult with them Cetera but there's this baggage that other example but it's in the reverse is banking I and this is my press I always think that you know I see all the ads and I talked to people really double edged sword again it feels a little bit like parenting and you say to your teenager I want you to tell me if you're in over your head somewhere but if my kid in late genuinely mean what they say which is we want to be viewed as partners we WANNA be viewed as consultants mechanic but Kinda go to their as their auto wellness professional interesting you know so they wanted to create they wanted to lower the barrier for people to doc five to seven drinks a night and I said excuse me and a so that's what it says here I said I don't I don't drink maybe maybe I said five even if they're starting to feel like how it really call Elliott about this I I suspect there are other voices like oh I'm sure it's not a big deal it's not just let let's make it go while you're adorable or my banker finds out I'm not really as good at reading my balance sheets in knowing my metrics as I should then I I show weakness to my banker resources for people and so they've got a challenge as many businesses do of lowering the consequences for communication both emotional the consequences are but I decide which things I'm honest about or not I feel like if it's but that's another interesting piece to it of some of those things I feel like I am dealing with on my own and I don't other but you yes there really are consequences there that that sharing right but at the same time you you see a lot of bankers genuine a bit just fairly it's a little bit like that you know I could call my banker and say you know we're we're not doing well you know I need you I need to figure out some options and they're going to attrition or your doctor and they ask you all these questions about the Peter should are the you're the eating your eighteen servings of vegetables day of cars you come in and I thought that was interesting because I don't think of oil change the same way as you know professional I want to lower the barrier for people to call me as her lawyer or whatever so that's our story the discussion doesn't have to end here no it does not actually don't want it to that is why we actually have our private facebook group early and financially lowering the consequences of honest communication eagles specifically hysterically backed doctor's I mean you know you go through your feel like I need their help one and so I will be less honest if I need to be on those others I'm like Nope we have an issue here and I'll you know I but that that thing of how honest you for the oil or for for the oil and other fluids that they changing I'm so what they wanted to do have a number of clients who are large out feelings of shame or whatever whatever it is that comes up it behooves every single kind of business out there subscribe via email and how to find just about anywhere you can possibly find podcasts at so here's my story dot com you can also find us on facebook and twitter ordering and it gets back to exactly the whole like me being able to come in and say hey my kid has a has a fever lowering the barrier for honest communication with it calling their banker because they don't want to be perceived yes incorrectly for an yeah in in banking in particular really does create a re feel like you can be with your doctor hysterically this this is really funny I've always tried to be honest with with my doctors on the ask you questions about sleeper how much you drink or whatever but I that is then part of your permanent record and it's a it's a it's a loss of control about a story line and and I don't know that doctors much like bankers meals leave off we start with stories welcome back to so here's my story I'm Jodi to seven a week I don't I don't remember like but it's not every week I don't know and I said can you change that and he goes oh sorry we can't change you know we can't edit calls me and says I'm in over my head at a party and come get me and then I bring them home and ground them for that I'm really gonNA limit how much they're going to trust me with the and banking I have an easy way around that but without that you then get into this problem of I mean I think you and I both have this same kind of thing where if you are not tonight I was like wow but but that I always think of that in terms of like let let's pretend that's true for a second that's kind of my whole point if I say that to my doctor which we started to make sure that we get your comments your rants your thoughts your stories or stories you can find links to that group as well as show notes and links to I see what general practitioner years ago and it was a different guy than I had originally this other woman and he was just sort of going over things and he said do you Do you still dream just a little bit of everything including wrangling us including rainbow inches no small feat is jody hume I'm Elliot Wagon and you've been listening the things you'll like is there smoking house no most of the things I'm honest about but then there's this whole list of them you know that of Mike Oh come on like and that that the you know I'm not sure what I think the S. H. MS podcast and since we know it takes a village assistance we'd like to thank our village are super talented incredibly patient Joe I r sound engineer Tom Hansen thanks to Christie Schmear for our brilliant show notes and all the other fantastic writing she does for us to tailor math or for will hesitate that lake well I knew I was going to be with you in two weeks cabinet problem in to win you worried about it for two weeks and he lost sleepover for two when we could have just solved it so after all okay well that's nice but like I can't give you a line of credit 'cause I know you're not doing well I mean vastly oversimplifying it and that's not how all bank banker confessional you know we're one of the and occasionally snark in the best of the Best Way sack ask mockery so huge shout out to the people who actually helped us producer they were good there's ever like a custody
111: Potential - Thom Singer
"You're listening to the daily sales tips podcast. And I'm your host Scott Ingram. Today's tip comes from my good friend, Tom singer on a topic. He's been speaking to a lot of sales organizations about lately here. He is with today's tip today. Let's talk about potential potentials really exciting. Right. People get really fired up around their potential, and what it is they possibly could accomplish. However potential does not equal performance sales managers get so excited when they hire someone new they add Becky to the team, and they are fired up because she's got the right background the right experience becky's got potential, and then a year later, they're transitioning Becky out of the organization will how come if she had so much potential. Why weren't their results? How come she couldn't sell? Well, it's like I said potential does not equal performance. My name is Tom singer. And I am a business growth speaker who works with teams and individuals to help them get focused on how to get farther across that gap between potential and performance. But when I get brought into a company the sales manager who hires me usually expects that I'm gonna come in and in a one to three hour period of time build a bridge from potential to results, and then I'm going to put their entire sales team on one bus and drive them across that bridge. Well, it doesn't work that way. You can't build a bridge between potential and results because you're never going to reach your potential. I know don't tell your mom that sounds horrible. But nobody can reach their potential because as you go through this journey of life. What's gonna happen is is you're going to get more potential. Your potential is going to change. It's not static. You're going to read a book, you're gonna listen to a podcast, you're going to have a motivational speaker come in who is going to hit the reset button for you. Or you're going to get an advanced degree or a special certification and. And that potential that you have is going to move farther out. So if we could build a bridge, eventually you'd reach the end of it and fall back into the gap. Plus, we can't put all the sales people on one team on a single bus because what's holding one person back is very different than what's holding another person back. So there's not one answer. There's not one bus that we could drive across the gap to begin with. So the analogy that I like to use is let's build a scaffolding that goes across that gap. Now think about a scaffolding for a minute. It's modular. It can be built to match the size of whatever it is. You're trying to accomplish and construct, and so it goes across the gap, and if your potential shifts, you just add another module on so that you can continually work your way across towards potential now some people once they know what's high oats, holding them back. They're going to get out there on that scaffolding, and they're going to book right across other people are going to get out there. And they're going to go up and down maybe diagnose. Oh, they're going to hold on. And look at the the gap and scream a little bit. And then eventually they'll inch their way farther towards their potential. So that's what we have to do. Now. I spoke recently in the construction industry, and one of the sales managers came to me and said, I love the analogy of the scaffolding. Do you have a construction background will? No, I don't. And he said I love that analogy because you can't build a scaffolding alone. It takes other people on the team to help you erect that scaffolding, especially if you want it to be safe because it's heavy. It's awkward you need someone to check to make sure the bolts are tightened. So that their safety involved. And he said the other thing is is that a scaffolding is not a permanent structure, you build it to accomplish a series of tasks, and then you take it down. But when it's time for renovations you erect a new scaffolding. So that's what we want to work on. We wanna work on finding a way to get people across at their own pace. And yet working as a team now. In my presentation, which I call the paradox of potential I have three areas that I touch on. And that is everything that you need to do falls into these buckets. And that is your plans, your passion, and the people you surround yourself with. So your plans that's goal setting. It's making sure you know, what you're trying to work towards passion. You gotta like your job. If you don't like the product or service that you sell or you don't like your company, you're never going to be a top performer, and in the most important of these buckets is the people it's how do you build relationships? Let's face it. We live in a world where everyone is looking for shortcuts, but all opportunities in life, still come from people. How you invest in people and grow relationships. That's what's going to matter. So get focused on how can I get across that gap. And how can the rest of my team members come with me? But don't expect that everyone is going to do it the same way potential doesn't equal results, but to move closer to your potential you do it by. Gauging in the right actions. Every day how close are you to living up to your own potential? This is a topic. Tom is going to help us work through when he comes back to serve as the master of ceremonies and conference catalyst at the sales success summit here in Austin in October together, we're all going to work on building a scaffolding to help each other get to the next level in our sales journeys to learn more about Tom his talks in his podcast as well as the sales success summit jump over to daily sales dot tips forward slash one eleven then be sure your subscribed to this podcast.

What Does It Take To Change Your Mind?
Best TV Shows of 2019 (So Far)
"You know this is the podcast you just welcome to the podcast i'm your host josh jackson and you just heard a little bit of needle and thread from one of my longtime david any pop bands ages and ages you're gonna hear the song at the end of today's podcast but this is a special tv edition of the podcast were breaking down the best tv shows a twenty nineteen so far my guest today is pay tv editor alison king first second appearance on the podcast welcome ause hello thank you out and you watch a lot of television fear job and just about every day any office were talking about what we've been watching what we've loved what were frustrated webs of what's overrated or just plain terrible 'em i wanna start out just talking a little about the state of tv in twenty nineteen twenty nineteen it's been interesting is were obviously right in the throes of peak tv right there's just so much and what's hilarious is i could be in a conversation with almost anyone and i watched so much television and yet none none of us were watching the same things over all catching up with different things at different times which i also think is really the key especially with netflix and stuff you know or even the dvr's were watching things at totally different time so it's hard to have the conversations you know you caught up with this you don't when a spoiled people and i think the one show that everyone is watching and talking about of course with game of thrones strangely though that did not make an appearance on arbat stevie list because of a number of factors that led to that season not being not only great for that show but just not great in general on television for a number of reasons mostly narrative reasons but in any case the other game of thrones this or the big play guy show between nineteen has not had a ton of like great television but that's a very good shows and it had a lot of consensus as far as what the best of the best are which is been surprising in a lot of ways i think in the past there's been a lot more division 'em so with paste we did the the top twenty five of the year so far acsi made a spreadsheet and had all of our writers put in waited choices for what they thought were the greatest shows so far in are finalist is not exact math as far as this with the number one pick her number two pick and whatnot but it did very much give me a an accurate picture i think of what most people are watching and talking about this year 'em so yeah i'm i think on any any given day rankings are hard any given day the rankings might be slightly different but i do think that the top four or five would be the same yeah is interesting that there's not be sort of obvious prestige television shows a there has been in the past there there is no sort of breaking bad or matt ryan or you know those those hourlong dramas that we all rallied around 'em that that sort of top the list drama actually having appeared very much on this list i mean they're they're a few but it's interesting to see how half hour shows 'cause i hesitate to say comedies you know it berry of a but these half hour shows or where we're seeing the most innovation in tv right now the the the narratives visually everything like there's not a category of television that's sort of analogous indie film because obviously everything is studio backed and everything has money if it's on tv and it's getting you know a lot of backing but the aesthetic of these have our shows like shrill like berry like fleabag are doing something very different in very interesting and i think the people are picking up on that also they're just shorter an easier to watch and frankly in this time of you know peak television that's kind of what people look i know even our long shows most somewhere like six episodes there eight episodes are ten you know they're not you know twenty three hour long episodes that you have to commit to four season for most of these shows a because that's that just takes away from all these other things you could watch an end as we said so there's not you know those those prestige john dramas those capitol ge great shows 'em are harder to find these days it seems like but still twentyfive shows and some of my favorites where even in the twenties here like marvelous mrs maes all that demeans veep these are really good really good as and yet they could they could and crop crack the top twenty 'em so that does say there's just a lot of really good television out there's a lot of really good television and i will say are are metrics have been skewed a little bit because i think were really looking for things that are innovative you know in the mix things up in weight those little higher than others but also a is this has been true with our weekly powerlift is well we're going by the marie condo method of does the spark joy and frankly you know a lot of these e is heavy dramas they missed what made breaking bad or madmen so good is that they they forget to be joy for which i think marvelous mrs mazel actually's a really good example the show the very joyful and understands works join me every time and i love season i love the the the camp that they went to i love the the whole trip to paris it's colorful and design on so much fun and that's that also divisive that this will do rare wasn't the reason why the low on this list is because other paste writers were a some of the very end time and all my life were announcing here on the pod here yeah if you're hearing about on the podcast motive this down you're gone you're out all right well let's get into the let's get into the top ten 'em i know you love number ten i am still early in season one i'm totally not caught up on the show i have so many people telling me oh my gosh you're not watching the show while you're not watching the show counterpart counterpart is a show that i used my editor powers to bump way up higher than it was already a because it is excellent and it has just killed me that a it never got the do that it needed i think part of that it was on stars and stars is known it's really build his brand around outlander around sort of these sweeping romance historical series which they do really well but stars also had a lot of really diverse interesting programming and i think if counterpart had been on on h b o or so where people were looking specifically for this sort of prestige spy drama that was so smart and so well acted did it might have caught on a little more unfortunately it was not renewed after the second season which just aired at the beginning of the year but it tells the complete story so don't let that stop you from catching up it absolutely in those two seasons is a better actually showing i get less overwhelming to think about how many roads and he's now that's a good question i want to say eight or ten it's not it's not an overwhelming amount 'em so let's talk a little bit about the fact that you know what network something is on really affects its water cooler ness i you know i i joke that they only people watching the good fight are are tv journalists you got cbs all access our free i think that's like i don't know who's paying for that that's a great show it's so much fun if that was on actual cbs i think it would be much more in the guys i think it'd be getting as much if not more tension in the good wife did which we've got a lot of attention deservedly yeah i i think i like it better it's never fun spicy spicy air more experimental mental it takes more risk because you know i think all being on cbs all access is freed it up yes be its own animal and it has embraced that completely i think it came in at number fourteen on our list whereas good fight fourteen but and that's largely i'm also not caught up with it as well so i think i think that was true with a lot of people in the un are voting pool is it looks like oh yeah good fights good i just i'm not caught up yet and so you know something on stars is it's it's not getting maybe the attention that if if that wasn't h b o show if that wasn't atrios sunday night show it would probably have gone for seven seasons and you know there are a couple of others that i think has gotten i mean the legends of tomorrow this is one my favorite shows on her list at number thirteen an this is an amazing show it's it's but even i like i fell behind watching it live and then the cbs or the cw app is so irritating to using has so many commercial break and then i just waited until it came on netflix to finish it because i just wanted to watch it without honest shows it's it's there it's like everybody's watching a season behind because you wait till it comes out on that exactly you know it's so much easier easier to watch without commercials to watch just right and i very you know in in the space where you used watching everything in for better or worse you know a lot of these shows i i try to convince my you gotta watch this you gotta watch that the first question is not where is it but is it on this is it on netflix and if not the kind of see them and get this glaze look like a and i mean you know actually amazon has four shows on her list which is a lot that's tied with h b o and that's an easy you know bench but then it's like well we're we're what with prime where do i find it what is this app it's for whatever reason i mean netflix has done a really good job of just taking over that consumer market where everyone's like is it on netflix is not is it worth me finding it yeah how intense yahu lou and and amazon are little an hp oh really those exceptions if you've got hp i'm in grand people don't tony upper don't you don't don't know somebody stole their parents don't yeah i i won't i won't say anything about my experience with h b o there so 'em but amazon is doing some great things and and they do have a show here at number nine 'em this is we talk about fun yeah it's a really fun series that's that might be the first word that comes to mind when i think about good omens and if the shows it relieves plays up the strings of its leads right like when whenever the why do i was i watched the show it's like do you like david tennant you like michael sheen do you like the just hanging out together that's pretty but don't they know buddy cop but buddy comedy of its way into just amazing actors and it's funny because we going back to the good fight i was watching this while i was watching the good fight you know would would be coming on and the see see michael sheen in you're not caught up on on good fight but now michael sheen's character in the good fight is basically this crazy republican operative who lives this opulent druggy lifestyle no wow completely abrasive is completely of noxious is like it doesn't even look like the character in in good omens in it like i had to tell myself this is the same person like is it really the same person it is the same person it's it's insane the range of michael sheen and a good just in those two roles i think sometimes they're they're dead to me it's another show you brought up earlier where that show is is a show that's made or lost by two leads right and i think good omens is the same like when you when you find two actors or actresses or whoever that they have such a good strong repore onscreen like that and have such great chemistry it you're good to go well in the craziness of the story to i around that had been harping on the air a bat shit crazy cv shows like like legion and 'em a dirt gently and right happy and you know like like everybody but he sort of trying to out do each other and they be craziness factor and 'em yeah good omens with with some of the whole story lines and twists and everything that's happening there and it just speaks to be the imagination of a neil gaiman 'em an oh gosh i'm drawing a blank harry pressured her practice yes thank you sorry fantasy folks i cannot remember terry practice name 'em yes the the a and then you also have francis mcdormand is the voice of god which is just fabulous and so number eight killing eve i mean again that's a case where you've got to leads at are so strong and so fantastic that that makes the show and it it makes it really work i will i had three leave this this season almost three leads the season i i will say that i think that one of the criticisms of season two which i think is valid but also i thought worked in a way to the show's favorite of such a new version of the first season with the villain outplayed by jodie comber was given such a better story than sandra oh's eve were villanova really felt like she came into her own in the season was really about her 'em in it to jody the mazing and villanovan insane character i think it works but it also gonna understand the frustration that well evils not giving kind of her do as a character i i had other frustrations with the second season just sort of believability of of right they say i dunno it it felt it felt safe like it did almost made villain out to safe and then twisted that at at moments and at times and obviously like a twisted that but 'em i don't know i i love love love the first season i really liked the second season yeah i'm interested to see where it goes from here 'em when we will get the phoebe while the bridge and are genius i a little later in this episode but who you know nobody's having a a bigger better moment right now in the context of this tv conversation the national she's she's punching up bond right now he's got a lot going on and i love it does brand new see a new series picked up by h b o called run it's like a rom com thriller i mean she's she's killing more than eve right all right seven the good place i have to admit that i have not watched the good weather i talk about the good place lawyer at the good life all day long i this is you know so i have grown children are grown and grown ish thing to do in college one in high school 'em wildly diversity tastes and everything my wife and i have the first taste and television idea of family gathering around and watching tv pretty much boils down to the good place in brooklyn nine nine in our household oh wow so but the good good place from episode one that's been something that we've all just just love and and you know it's those were both michael shir shows and we would all alright parks and rec would fit right in there as well like he makes television that is just seems to be for everyone it's smart the ensemble cast that he's able to put together they're always just seems so perfect but it's because the character also written so well like yes we we love amy poehler and if he's on sorry in all these people but we also love tom haverford it's it's amazing you know they've taken on there is the the characters are so well developed in all of these shows and what good place does with mary's that that talent for building these great ensemble cast and of of amazing character is an it plots shows better than any sitcom i i i can ever remember like v the twists and turns every season every episode i love the they're they're ending it on their own terms because you know that will connect to the idea that like okay you don't just keep like there there's only so many places you take the end they they've taken such 'perfect places in it runs full broadcast seasons right is it twenty two episodes or does it is it sixteen i don't i know it's not tony to okay it's a shorter that how i mean even you know legends of tomorrow in a good place i think are only two speechless 'em are only broadcast shows on the list but you know legends runs of sixteen episode season or less typically and i think that really is like yet stretching in the cut off really three seasons it's hard to maintain excellence in writing right in executioner whatever you've got you're filler episodes you do not have filler could play every every episode takes it into a new place and every episode is just funny the janet episode this season was unbelievable television amazon are best episodes of the year i think is that right yeah well yeah yeah it was a and i think that was like early january early january we know we did not make the cut those december was the senate like yeah it was everyone voted for and it's almost like guys number but that's why that's why a janet was are best character of of twenty eighteen so of of course but it did did continue on into a early this year and i will be coming back for one more season so when they see us so from from from comedy in joy and happiness v diametric direct opposite with netflix is when they see us which is the age the do vernay her take on duty 'em central park five right is that the the as they're known yeah so this is this is also josh show because i was going to watch it and then josh is like i just started watching it and they told me all the horrible things that like i could i could i could hardly get through the first episode like you're not making me i know it's necessary television is absolutely necessary television i still only one episode in and that's that just speaks to what it was i am because i've never been so angry frustrated like emotional 'em just emotional period i think of watching an episode of television of watching that first episode it's because these were just kids because range or these little innocent kids who should have childhoods an because of de racism because of be a sense of of we've got to find someone to blame the problem rain are society the how that spiraled out of control and how the story plays out like this is this is such say front page news story about how this plays out in everyday life and you think of all the people that are just just have to go through this even if they don't go through the extent of what these five kids went through right the residents of what's happening now that's a strong black young men in america are viewed would do such a lens it's just it's just heartbreaking so so but it is it's really well done 'em television show as a television show right but it's also just prepare yourself before you you start watching this i literally had to stop in the middle of the episode and finish it later on in the day because i was just overwhelmed was right an end because of where we are right now as a country and that you know that unhealthy underlying anger that i feel every day when i when i ran an angry person i feel like i wake up every day with a little bit of this bubbling in anger and frustration and madness 'em and that i think a lot of us are feeling right now and 'em but it's it is there's there's a beauty in in the television show in what these people have gone through and where they are now and how they can still be saying and generous people and rain this day and age so yes watch the show just prepare yourself before you do right ended his on netflix you convince me otherwise maybe not have been show but one one that had very necessary 'em those on staff who had seen it just yeah absolutely said it's necessary it's powerful it's it's it's just something that that has to be seen an end what a talent the dealer now yeah oh my gosh yes absolutely 'em so five this is all you because i'm so i'm suzanne well that's atrophy so over the top five shows because they are all half hours swishing dog lover within a half hour yes our only there half hours except for number two number two yeah which is interesting and again like that this shocks me to my core of this that you know we've always been talking about the shows that we love our long whatever the liar is a breaking bad the madman kind of stuff where it's like yeah it's it's our long dramas that incorporate elements of comedy didn't even recently was v americans and hot and catch fire yeah there's there's no when all those ended we haven't really gotten their replacement know there have been many that have tried many that have failed because they've again they forget the necessary balance i think those shows need but not even a justified on television you know what i mean like no there is and it's called perpetual grace on ethics fuck i will also throw in a note that our cut off of this one june fourteenth yeah and are rule is that the the show hedges aired most of its episode by that date so things like big little lies a basket perpetual grace did not make the cut for this round so you're telling us the perpetual grace on ethics it's on ethics which nobody's gonna watch this is the problem sidebar about perpetual grace it's it's it's essentially a western 'em it's about it in fact there are actually this one justify doctor on there and it has been kingsley it has a jimmy simpson from westworld it has jacki weaver so you know checkmark amazing cast a check mark it has an outstanding visual style that's very unusual hearkens back and a lot of ways the breaking bad but even i think elevates dare i say wow in certain ways okay certain ways 'em off austin imitated i'm looking right it it definitely does his own thing on every time i see a shot of like somebody space in the water or through the fridge or wherever of like it's very artistic it's very artistic it's also very funny it is very odd ball humor the doesn't it's not cartoonish a but it's also very dramatic so it plays it has all these winning elements from these other dramas but it's on ethics which you may have on your dial i'll go find find it honestly don't know if i have ethics that's what most people say and most people do have it it's part of their cable bundle but if you don't have cable that's a little more challenging and i don't know where you can find it but 'em and that kind of that's again that's the problem with peak tv is that some of the shows that are getting a the green lights that are that's interesting in or this a you know different or sometimes on unusual are obscure networks and this comes from the the same guy who did the patriots a the tv show yeah love hatred of patriot fan so it had the big cult following those okay i'm gonna knock it down on but backdoor number five catastrophe of 'em so catastrophe is eight show that it's a half hour show it's british 'em sharon horgan and rob delaney r v leads they also a co created the show right at an it's a series that is really about it's a comedy but it's also very dark very snarky in a way that kind of only british people i think and kind of get away with a billion is american but the humor and everything there is very of that sort of uk style style 'em and it's about a couple who have a fling an she gets pregnant and she wants to keep it they end up getting married and having more kids which sounds like a rom com but it is very much not in any way it's an egg by ron isn't an tyrone come it's extremely real as far as augmented comedy but it feels very real their frustrations a real other frustrations with each other with their jobs with their family i am lee with just everything 'em but it's still has the warmth to it that never makes it to bitter yeah and i think that it is it's such a smart companies only runs six episodes of season i think a you know you can binge it in one afternoon you've just been through such an emotional ringer you know from one extreme to another and a it's it's it's fun it's definitely fun but it's also like it really got punches you sometime i yeah i so i've watched most of first season and and have very much enjoyed it very much looking forward to keeping going on this and this with its final season so i just aired so binge away for four number four yes of course is a definite benjamin show show and that's on amazon which which again amazon had quite a few injuries in are list which was different i think again from previous years where their programming really got sort of forgotten or kind of people didn't realize like mozart in the jungle fantastic show no one wants talked about 'em but yeah catastrophe definitely worth sticking out a number four is probably one that most people have seen which is russian doll this this got the knowledge over a number one for me this this year and i love their number one show and you can't really say but there's any flaws with it but russian doll i just it's one of those things where it's just you surprised you felt like it came out of nowhere although i actually really like leslie hedlund and stuff that she's done and of course the tasha leone is a national treasure but she's on her oats but i love the show i love the you talk about catastrophe of it being this dark but it's it's got the swamp thunder need that to me is just such a wonderful combination when you have a show that can be funny in biting sarcastic and and dark and all these things but at its heart it is it is humanist it is it's warm it's it's it deals with how to be good i like it's it's weird to make a comparison between russian doll and bo jack horsemen put like a new york times actually did this 'em had an article about the morality television and tv shows that are talking about how to be good yeah and those two shows will do a good good places there's another one where it takes these character sewer so flawed and so just screwed up and fleabag is another one which will get into 'em an end deals with them in such a real hey it's such a human moral struggling to be better than you are right i love that in the tv show in russian doll did it i mean that's that's the entirety of what russian doll and it is a show about how how how would it be a decent human being how to 'em not an h right way not an essay 'em preachy way but any beautiful funny surprising a thrilling way and so i just i loved the show so much as the tryon at josh is number one pick for for the year but it's a four or i i'm a little bit of a russian doll agnostic i liked it i binged on one go but i didn't feel as connected to it as some of the other shows on her list but i do agree that it is something that was really be unique indefinitely captured obviously there's something to it it captured everyone's attention and in heart and sort of a you know people were talking about it and frankly like that's one of the biggest things that's happening we talked about the beginning of the segment is it's hard for any show to break out it'd be the thing that everyone is talking about because no one's with russian doll and a half out in the neck that's all you get these days that's like if you if you could even whole the twitter conversation for a weekend you're doing pretty well but a week that's that's really good 'em so are number three show also did that off of particularly particularly in particular episode a number three shows berry on h b o a writer creator star bill hater 'em and i think that's also speaks to a little bit of what you're saying about russian doll with berry explores this tension between who we really are and what we want people to see in us and how we want to be seen by other people end with berry it's obviously he's an assassin slash amateur dramatizes though this is a very different kind of thing but most of us go through 'em but it uses that platform to explore or really interesting personal themes about against throws that struggle of what is it mean to be good and how do you define yourself and you know how do you get people to see you as you want to be seen which i think that the second season really explored even in some of these other character stories like with the sarah goldberg's character is well sally 'em it's she wants success but at what personal cost you know like if she's going to be seen is famous they're successful what did she have to change about the reality of who she is and it's it's it's oh art if you say i'm not sure there's a warmth underneath there is not a warm prefer berry there is some humor a lot of humor humor at it almost the opposite thing of of russian doll it's very much about trying to be a good person wanting to be a good person but feeling over and over again failing spectacular psychopathic way yeah and i don't wanna spoil the finale if you're not caught up but the finale he is an episode that really just like i had to sit with us for a little while because you want the best for buried and you want and he wants the best for himself but but you know his life just just gets in the way but the episode the josh was teasing earlier ronnie lily now they're number one episode of twenty nineteen so far and it is again i wanna spoil anything if you haven't seen it but it is eight delightful insane incredible half hour of television maybe the best character on tv and i don't i think she has any dialogue december say a word oh gosh you know i i don't think she does she apparently there were interviewed the hater i think access when they when they were creating that they had idea to this episode whatever he he knew somebody who is like hey i have this like eleven year old a martial arts prodigy if you ever need that in the show and they're like a yeah let's find work at the only other character in that show ron ronnie a gym wrote jim brown yes paste wrote a wonderful thing digging up his his past as these star of hey a one of the best episodes of a mystery science theater now yeah yes so yeah you gotta redo that as well go to pace magazine dot com a do we have his name mona i know i was like wait a minute hold hold hold up 'em but yeah he that whole episode was just the choreography fee the cringe these hilarity i mean i probably i mean it was just cracking up by the end of that 'em just in terms of okay hold on i've got the daniel bernhardt in over his name a andy let's see the a movie the he was in hold on the this is considered by the way one of the best 'em mystery science theater wrists yeah they did 'em but he basically it's sort his career with the john claude van damme kind of 'em like a lesser than like you sort of competing with the swedish amateur put the john claude gosh darn oh the movie its future war future or 'em though yeah this was this was trying to play on on these these van damme craze and and you found you're you're martial arts guy but he's made a career he's he wasn't john wick he's he's made it clear as as they character actor in these kinds of movies and now has had his mother moment he's he's a handsome talented dude in his actually how good looking he is is one of these really biggest jokes of that episode 'em and again i'm off by why but it's it's hilarious great very great 'em so again a little bit of whiplash to are number two which is chernobyl noble although one h b oh yeah i i watch this is loving it but we had no expectation that that's what's gonna take over the conversation i did not either because as they went like this when i went to the television critics association press tour last winter 'em they showed us aid trailer for chernobyl and at that time is not on my radar at all an just the sound of those radiation meters i think that with all the that was playing pretty much over the the trailer was enough to i had shield i was haunted by and i thought this is gonna be a thing and the fact that you know so he's real aired on monday night's game of thrones with obviously the sunday night program they're trying to expand their the knights of their primary in the dramas and i thought game of thrones is gonna swallow this whole and no one's gonna be paying attention to it but oddly chernobyl ended up and i don't think it happened immediately it took took a little time for people to to really get into it but i think chernobyl actually gave people be really outstanding twisted dark emotional storytelling that we wanted from game of thrones his final season and delivered on every level i mean this is a story that 'em is difficult anyway because you're talking about a nuclear meltdown but the fact that turnover always grounded it in humanity is i think what really made it so so good i mean the cast is so good 'em it's a by the way do not eat while you watch the show we talked about this on the podcast before it's a it's a difficult the really difficult show but 'em the production values acting the narrative again you know i mentioned this in the previous episode but the fact that you come away from the finale actually knowing how in nuclear power plant works there at least how power plant like chernobyl work and then why it failed is an outstanding standing feet of surprisingly educational television 'em that i think is one of its its biggest triumphs yeah i love that amy glenn a ended are are writing on that it is that's what that's what a desperate in excruciating in horrible horrible horrible and it should be yeah yeah oh that is true it is mind but this this show is mind blowing it a again at like there there might not be those 'em prestige hourlong dramas but they're to episode two shows in are top ten just feel important yeah they're they're they're educational there topical their their current like they're about massive issues and they're both mini series which is enters right they wrap it up and forty six episodes and they don't feel like tv vegetables you know what i mean they're they're those shows that are like i'm gonna say something and they say it in a way that really feels like it's forcing be issued like make sure you understand it and it's like no we get it like these shows are how to do it rights 'em so yeah so speaking of great things coming in small packages two seasons six six half hour long episodes each were talking about that's six hours of of television yeah over yeah fleabag lee bag six perfect hours that if you haven't seen the show so you have six 'perfect hours the to look forward to i mean i think the brilliance of fleabag which comes from phoebe waller bridge also created killing eve a crash did you ever watch crushing i kinda wanna go back and watch it now is just why she was holding that she yes she was a greater an stars so 'em it not not be not h b o not there pete holmes right see bbc no i think half i dunno photographer in our i need to go back and watch that but yes so yes you're also helping right bond also has a new show on h b o coming up i'm phoebe waller bridge so talented i mean she just what makes this show special the number of ways well first of all she stars in this one by the way she's not in killing eve she stars in fleabag as well is having having written it she her character name is just listen to this we back it you'd never reference no one ever says her name i try to i try to come up with her name another day and it's like a yeah what is her name it a little little things like that that show you the way the the show is so carefully crafted right where it's never a thing you never think about the fact that no one says her name this this whole series of you never think about the fact that no one ever says the name of the priests play by andrew scott in season two 'em and it's it's what makes i think so brilliant two things one phoebe waller bridge as the star 'em she talks to the camera which typically can be a dangerous thing in tv movies like if you talked to the camera and you invite the audience and that could be a really corny or really you know kind of takes you out of the action she will do it mid sentence and it is the timing is so perfect yes that it's you are you are pulled and you become a constant not you know how to short or she's like a non you know mostly not in so many words but occasionally in so many words a hearse sides were perfect v in season two there's a little twist on that the perfect 'em it plays into the it's not just a joke it plays into the the core theme of the whole show and why is she giving these aside when it actually means there's meaning to it and the other thing i think is so significant 'em and of course he's still likeable and so charming even though she keeps messing up you know doing all these things but the other thing that makes it so great is the writing itself is so distilled you know as josh mentioned you've got two seasons six of these six 'perfect hours because the dialogue there's nothing wasted everything matters in a way that you're not conscious of but every piece of dialogue does something an it distills a this show down into the like the most sure essence of drama and comedy and emotion in love and all of these major themes but it plays out in a way that is so unusual and unexpected in and i also i think you know everyone i talked to who watch lee back has liked it i think the women in particular have become like ext exceptionally sort of protecting other showing way but but it resonated me what josh but i mean not exclusively by any measure because i had a a male friend of mine this male friend of mine look like russian doll is good but fleabag is life you know and so it definitely it definitely is for everyone but i think women in particular has just i mean it speaks on such a deep level 'em that is really astonishing i it just it's astonishing astonishing show that i'm really proud a habit of their number one because i just think the did and body is really the best of tv this year so far we kept we kept writing about it and praising it and all this stuff and i kept the kind of ignoring it until earlier this year i had and i didn't watch the first season without most people didn't and i've been them both in and then amazon again would you say this is amazon you know i'm not hard to find but yeah i i watched the both and and just immediately was like okay you've just just go watch it you will love it so i'm telling all of our podcast audience right now go watch it and i'm in for anything phoebe waller bridge a is decides to do or yeah she said that she's she's pretty much done with television as far as i think starring in thing she's she's moving onto the movies in that format but yeah ditto anything she i'm all in all right well thank you so much alison thank you have been fun are even reid all about
