"He was which he never is. Because he's the boss. Very likable. It wasn't a very quickly. He sort of had a come to Jesus moment after that and met with the patriots, and sort of I think. Rose. Let's calm down. Here. We want to make our money and also Bill bell. Jack was probably like I'm going to trade you unless figure that was probably a very likely situation where he said, listen, we're not putting up with the patriots shouldn't put up with stuff. Like that. No teams. You put it. That's ridiculous. I mean, he was basically just spitting in the patriots face. He was doing the press coverage was that they were they playing right? I mean that was that was that was it was a rare huge misstep for him and PR perspective. He's typically pretty astute about when he's talking what he's saying in terms of likability. Like, you said everybody typically likes him. But that was just a bad looking. I think he pretty quickly realized that that had happened. But ultimately like you said, you got brought into the fold whatever he be apologized and behind closed doors. I'm not sure or said, listen, I do really want to be here and yesterday he was rewarded with that contract extension. You want to parse words and say, well, not really rewarding. Yes, the earn it still giving him extra money that they didn't have to give him. Right. So the vice contract that could be worth thirteen point three million dollars in two thousand eighteen the basis nine million dollars. He's got four one point one million incentives. He needs to get nine or more touchdowns one thousand eighty five or more yards. Seventy catches and play in eighty percent of the. Offensive snaps each one of those if he earns it is worth one point one million, but it maxes out at three point three million. So he can reach three of those or for them, but he's gonna make only three point three million in those incentives. He also would get another million dollars. If he plays in all sixteen games, something he's only done once in his career. Would of course was his rookie year. Now, the numbers look a little bit odd there, but they're one more than last year last year at eight touchdown receptions. So they're saying get nine or more. We'll give you one point one million last year two thousand and eighty four yards. They're saying get two thousand eighty five we'll give you one point one million and last year at sixty nine catches which is perfect for gronkowski. They said get seventy catches this year. You'll make one point one million. In addition. Sam. But I want to have sixty nine catches. He doesn't want to. He what he's good at stopping there. That's he likes that number. Yes. That's his favorite Novosti Lee, referencing it. I think if the league would allow it he'd wear six seven, no doubt in my mind, you'll be wearing that. It's just incredible with Bronco skiing. Again, he seemed happy about it. And look there's nowhere else. Players can go. Do they hold out? And wait to try to get rewarded. It's working out for Aaron Donald right me signing the richest defensive contract and fell history. Six years one hundred thirty five million dollars three or so guaranteed. I believe so now he's the highest paid defensive point football is probably the best defensive player in football. Aaron Rodgers the highest paid player in football at thirty three and a half million dollars and deservedly. So because it should be him or Brady we'll get the Brady's contract because it's even more ludicrous, the more I think about it what he's going to be making. This you even if he reaches all those incentives now rob gronkowski is going into his ninety and his first eight seasons. This is his regular season his average season in his first season. With the patriots plays twelve point seven five games per year. There's been the injury concerns, obviously, he's averaged fifty nine catches per year for nine hundred yards fifteen yards per catch. Which is outstanding for tight end deep threat for most of the first eight years you've been hearing. He's averaged nine and a half touchdowns per year. Now in the postseason his numbers, go up. He's played thirteen postseason games has sixty eight receptions, nine hundred seventy two yards better than fourteen yards per catch and twelve touchdowns and thirteen postseason games. So now you have the best quarterback Super Bowl era in the fold. You've got rob gronkowski. The best tight end of the Super Bowl era in the fold and they're going to need both of these guys because there's not a lot around them. Now, there's not as we've talked about length at how thin they are wide receiver and with all the cuts today, maybe that changes soon, but as it stands they are incredibly thin on the offensive side of the ball in terms of weapons for Tom Brady. We still don't really know. When Sony Michelle is going to be back. He's practicing in sort of a limited capacity. So I don't think it would surprise anybody. If he's not ready to go for the start of the season. That's just one less weapon for Tom Brady. So obviously, it was it was incredibly important to make sure that gronk was going to be here in going to be happy. I guess you could say as happy as possible though. I think again once you're in the season think you focused on your contract so much just playing this doing the routine of the of the given week and preparing and play before the season starts. I just don't it's not on your mind. If you're a player Kaz, then you're just you're going to not be playing as well as you can so eight behooves both the player in the team to get it done before the season starts in terms of all those contract things. And gronk I think is is going to be somebody that you can expect to proudly approach all if he's healthy. If he's all those numbers. There's no reason to assume that he's lost a step or bonus. That you get for playing all sixteen games. That's not necessarily likely last year. He missed two games. One was for an injury. And that was a Thursday after Sunday game where he probably could've played if it was Sunday not Thursday. So that's a concern there. But also one game he was suspended for the hit on today's white late in the season. So he played in fourteen games, and that kind of circles us back to Alex Guerrero, and I think als Guerrero ways in heavily with gronkowski. And Tom Brady. That's not exactly breaking knew. But with both of those players having these incentive laid out there for them. Alex career becomes a key guy. And if you're rob gronkowski you've now worked with Alex Guerrero, the last two off seasons you had your healthiest season a year ago since you rookie season. So he's all in on Alex Guerrero. As obviously Tom Brady is so Alex Guerrero is making these two guys money if they're able to reach these incentives. That's that's where I still think there's a Chazan between ballot check Brady gronk, and Alex Guerrero. And that's why it's kind of been brokered along that Alex can fly on the team flight. Can he be on the sideline when can you work with the players where can you work with the players? That's all stuff that that's still going to be a story going throughout the season. Yeah. I think it's going to be less of a story, especially amongst people who like fans, I think our our little fed up with the story because they're just they're just sheep them to say. Okay. Tom Brady, whatever that's fine. Everything we're going to keep piling. Yeah. We are. As far as Guerrero and gronk, oh, I don't think he's as invested Brady. But he definitely I think it might be more of a mental thing with gronk and essay how to help be healthy season. It's because of this guy he looks leaner. He looks leaning doesn't look at a lot of these interesting. It just comes down to luck. Of course. Gronkowski's injuries are like car crashes. His injuries aren't because he's out of shape. He's. Gronkowski. And Brady you don't have to worry about what their efforts going to be neither one of these guys are going to call in sick on Tuesday or Wednesday, obviously Tuesday's day off and say I'm not going to shop today for practice. That's just not in their DNA goodbye, just being half invested in this. You think if somebody asks wrong about Guerrero, he's going to hang up on an interview walk out of an interview is he that protective too. I doubt it. No. Because he doesn't have the business connection with Alex Guerrero. The way that Tom Brady does the Tom Brady's afterlife in football is tied to Alex Guerrero. God forbid you ask him about it. Don't protect doesn't wanna Tommy Guerrero is godfather to his second, son. Yeah. That's that's a pretty strong connection there, not just in terms of financial, but in terms of friendships, I've sort of a general idea of what you're getting at with this gronk incentive contract. But just spell it out for for me. And for everybody listening. You think it's a slap in the face. Absolutely. Because here's the shocking nine plus touchdowns. He's done. At five times in his first eight years a thousand eighty five yards. He's done it three times in his first eight years and seventy catches are more. He's done three times in his first year. So he's likely to maybe only to these incentives. The other one is if he plays an eighty percent of the snaps which obviously is tied into how many games he plays. And then there's another million dollars that he can earn. If he played in all sixteen games, which I don't see how that happens because if you're really looking to be the best team, you can be in January. It makes sense to maybe shut gronkowski down for a game or two right depending on down stretch. Okay. You're you're you're twelve and two and you're selling off into the playoffs and you're playing Miami. Or the jets here in December the really need gronkowski out there. And then if he doesn't play you taking away a million dollars out of his pocket again it all comes down to the situation down the stretch if they're playing for home field advantage, which typically they are then maybe you can it's more important to. I think we talked about this before you go out there for one snap and say, okay. I don't know if you try if you're seriously competing for home field advantage because I think that's gonna be key for this up already say locked up already then. Yeah, you're. Dress them up and he goes out there for the first play of the game. And then he played sixteen games. But as he reached eighty percent of the snaps because the net. Playing in that game. Let's say he's at eight touchdowns. And there's two games left. You wanna throw him a touchdown. So that you can get them. Another one point one million. It is tied into this is well, I mean, we're gonna see pitching catch between Brady and gronkowski. Because there's a lot of money to be had. I the way they're doing. This just blows my mind talking about the best quarterback in the best tight end that any of us ever seen, and I'm an old fart, and I can make that case. And you're putting these types of incentives out there, this this is okay again for Johnny Manziel. Jameis Winston or even someone like Travis Kelsey who maybe the second best tight end in football, Jimmy Graham, whoever else these two guys they produce year in year out when you look at potential MVP candidate how many tight ends ever get into the discussion of potential he's the only one I've ever seen. So now, you're putting this out there for them to reach these incentives. It just kinda reminds me this is again an old man reference. But if you go back to like the ninety s and early two thousands, the Bruins would run their organization like this like they would ring their hands, Harry Sinden and the Jacob family like we screwed everyone..

We've all experienced times in our life when we ruminate and worry about the problems and difficulties and stresses that were facing, and it's as if we just can't get out of our head Ethan cross, who's at the university of Michigan has done a series of studies finding that the perspective that you take upon yourself, how you refer to yourself the particular way you think about yourself can help you frame your problems in more peaceful and abstract ways. What we did in the key experiments involved inducing stress in various ways. We toll participants that they'd have to give a speech on why they're ideally qualified to land their dream job and didn't give them any really any time to practice. We had half of the participants reflect on the anxious thought streaming through their head in the first person using first person, singular pronouns, pioneer my, what am I thinking? What are my feelings like? And the other condition we told people to use their name and other non first person pronouns to reflect on what was going through their head what we call distance self talk. And then we looked at what affect that. Those different sets of instructions had on participant's performance and how they felt and across studies we found that using distance self self-talk, let people to experience less anxiety and also perform better under these stressful contexts and. Also in terms of physiological responses, lower cardiovascular activity and things of that sort. What we're learning is that psychological distance is one element that can be useful in allowing people to focus on those negative experiences more effectively without getting really stuck in caught up in those minutes thoughts us when kids start learning how to control themselves, they actually talked to themselves out loud, like apparent might do coaching and critiquing themselves along. But over time, those conversations go silent. They go internal this very primitive way that we enter the world, regulating ourselves can emerge later on in life and serving adaptive function later on as well. One of the benefits of reducing the intensity of the emotion surrounding some of his negative experiences and gaining a broader perspective is that it can help you feel overwhelmed by the intense negative emotions that often accompany. Very important situations are allies and turning down the thermostat, a tiny bit, not turning it off, not feeling nothing, but reducing the anxiety, reducing the sadness, a little bit, I think, could be remarkably useful for helping people feel better and perform better.

A comment with your thoughts really helps us get it out there. So others can listen to it. I don't consider skateboarding a sport. It's another path of life away to live. You end up doing it. There's no reason you're not after something tangible in the sense of like a trophy or monetary gain or anything. That's not why most skateboard ever skated to begin with. It's not any of that. There's some sort of self fulfillment that you get from it, and at sense of peace, it's not like a sport. There's not use rules and regulations. You don't need a number. You don't need a team. You don't need other people do it. You don't need a coach. She don't need anything. It's none of that. It's it's something very different. It stops the gears from grinding the constant thought or even, you know, the daily stresses of life bid truly as therapeutic in that way completely. I'm trying to keep my sanity does what it really comes down to when you're skating, you're not necessarily aware of conscious of what it is in that moment. Exactly that you're doing. It's not like you're thinking when you're skateboarding, you just are. It is an honor to have skateboarding legend and music legend. Tommy Guerrero with us here on the science of happiness. Tommy thanks for being with us today. Thanks for having me your recently honored his a. Would that feel like I didn't use trans? Will they do awards? And I didn't wanna do it. You know and I and I asked my buddy who said, yeah, you gotta kinda gotta do it was like God. I just I'm not one to rest on my laurels. You know these accolades that you've gone in like greatest? I don't care. Is it alarming to be a legend? Now, you know what's alarming about that. It's is it most legends true legends are dead. And so I don't want to be login yet in one of your videos, you talk about which are really fun to take stock of the history of skating because you're right at the center of the history of skating. You kinda talk about it. Has this important psychological quality for young people just to say up yours to society, and there is a power in that freedom completely. We do need that. You know the way society set up? Yeah, is I mean, there's all these parameters and walls guidelines and rules and as a kid, you don't want any of that. You don't want the freedom to do what you wanna do and kind of should be that way when you really think about it. And so when you find something that goes against the grain pretty much everything. Yeah, it's magical. I worry, you know, I've just raised a couple of teen daughters and it's just harder for kids to have that moment or context where they can like shake their fist at the world and say, I'm going to do things differently, societies marginalization. Skaters is really weird. I mean, here's, you know, a very green. You know, environmentally friendly form of transportation wise Zaidi's so tough on skaters, ignorance, mainly. Yeah. I think with street skating, you know, the perceived damage of property which you know we won't even go into. I mean, it's really quite minor in the scale of things, but you know, you have, I don't know a hundred basketball courts and tennis courts and soccer field throughout the city. And you have no skate parks. Yeah, what sense does that make? You know, we started skateboarding on the streets because that's what we had. You walk out your front door and there it is and you make do with what you have. It's something positive. It safe, it's healthy. Yeah, it instills all of these great traits that's incredible that you take with you for the rest of your life, like what to nasty, perseverance, grit. You know, there's that saying you fall down seven times. You get up eight and it's true. Skateboarding, and the beauty of skateboarding is no matter where you go in the world. You can identify and relate to that person. It doesn't matter culturally language, barriers, at cetera. It doesn't even matter. You would go to these other countries, other places anywhere you go, you feel at home? Yeah. And the thing is about skateboarders when we were growing up, we were outcast. And so to have these people that you can identify with to be among your ilk was pretty incredible. You know, I can relate to six-year-olds gator and literally sixty year olds gator no problem, which I'd been better at it. So you know, as you're developing this interesting life in skateboarding, you're also performing a lot of music. Obviously, there's a lot of intersection between the skate scene berry music completely. Yeah, everyone who skated within a punk band brother. He's really phenomenal tar player, and we're all self taught. We just sit in my basement for hours and hours and just play making their parents very, oh, yeah. My mom was super cool. Yeah. Yeah. She was very cool in the garage. We had our all our gear setup and we'd make tons and always and she put up with my aunt and uncle lived upstairs, and everyone was cool with it on. Now they're seeing the fruits, but you've, you're moving into kind of a musical more extensive part of your life Rolling Stone called one of your albums bone of their favorites of the year. I think it was. It was soul food, Tucker, yet. My first thought was, okay who paid this guy, academic Paola happening here. I would love to have the opportunity to play more live and with friends because they like skating to me. It's like a session when you're hanging out with everyone just and it's wave. You kind of communicating to music while I was really nice to hear your music and see what a life of skating leads to. So I want to ask you about the practice that you did you of all the different practices that promote meaning in well-being on our website, you chose gaining perspective on negative events. Why did you choose this practice? It's something I kind of been doing. For quite some time in my life. Just a lot of introspection and kind of sitting back and trying to figure out why you go through these things that you do and how to best navigate them without a bunch of damage to to yourself in those around you. Yeah. And so I- unfortunately, I'm, I think far too much, you know, I mean my head quite a bit, but it helps me think these through a way to be at peace with myself with these things that are going on, it just takes so much thought and having to be able to put yourself in the middle and on both sides, kind of looking at different angles and seeing it from other people's perspective, and you have to figure that out and the way that you talk about skating, if it was in in pari had many different reasons why you were drawn to it. They part of it is just getting out and getting perspective on life. Oh yeah. In traveling, gives you much better understanding of what the world is really like. N people are really like, and truth is were all pretty much the same. We all are. After the same things very basics to be happy. Yeah, I really admire that work that goes into this gaining perspective practice. It's by one of my colleagues at Berkeley Ozlem. I Duke in her colleague Ethan cross, and it's as you describe it, which is it's this practice of, you know you, you deal with life's sufferings and you're having trouble at home. Right? Were you rely on one of the great gifts of the mind which is just a, like you said, like kind of be in the middle of it, and then kind of look at it from different sides and look at it through the eyes of different people with the practice you choose something that you're really having trouble with, and then you sort of use different kinds of ways of referring to yourself to get perspective. So what did you do. How did you do it? Well, initially, you know, it depends on the situation, but if it's something that's negative, right? You're you're angry. So so there's it. I that moment where he's like. Pissed there's a tendency to your biased. Right? And that you feel that this is unfair and as a sense of where you're being sort of, I don't know, perhaps attacked. Yeah. And then you got to take a step back, look at the situation in like, okay, let's look at this as like a problem. There's always a compromise and everything at how do you get to that middle ground. I often I've made huge compromises for the benefit of others. I mean, compromise to myself that I think is a compromise just to realize that there's a much bigger picture here. Yeah, and I can't be caught up in my new show and the details of things when the picture is much more important. The whole? Yes. So then a half the union just let go. Yeah. Yeah. So it sounds like you started with a conflict in between people that you are sort of sorting out? Yes. Yes. And would you do? Well, I'm still I'm still. Still, I'm serious. He'd never go away. No, no, no, no, it doesn't door opens and then a window closes and then another, you know. So how did you shift perspective on yourself with this study? What they do is they say, you use your name and it kind of gets you to treat yourself as a different person or object if you will. So the third person thing that's a difficult one to go into the third person go Tommy, what do you think about this and well, Tommy. Is is actually is, is actually it's odd. And so I haven't gotten to that point feeling comfortable doing that. I know it helps remove from it. I think that can help remove the ego to some degree. And that's what a large part. A lot of this is, is ego when it gets in the way. Yeah. And so you have to figure out how to diminish that. You know, one of the other studies that they use. Imagine you're filming yourself in this situation, and that's helpful for me like God. I'm in this conflict with my teenage daughter, or, you know, family members somebody at work, and I imagine, what would it look like? It was a film. How do you do it? Well, I've, I've seen myself on film quite a bit. You have an advantage there and you know, highly dislike, seeing myself on film or even hearing myself for that matter. So that's part of the whole third person things I didn't. Anyway, I'm so tired of myself. You know, I look at myself in the mirror every day. That's enough. That's enough ame- I grew up in the media. I mean in magazines and videos in my life has been extremely public. You go online and everywhere, and so to have it that much in my face if I can diminish that. Great. Yeah, yeah, Lassen you wanted to call yourself Tommy like the rest of the world? Yeah, yeah. Well, there's so much out there, especially in this day and age of everyone tooting their own horn, and it's just. It's kinda gross because the truth of the matter is no matter how good at something you are. There's always someone much better and under appreciated. And so I just don't see how people can buy into it. They just buy right into it. Yeah, I'm the greatest know you're not come. Come on down to our level right here. Reality. Check in in when you know you live in a society in the world is so vain. Did that frustrate you like just kind of have these very pure reasons why you're out skating and then suddenly it becomes this kind of media phenomenon to some degree? Yeah, yeah, because it's marketing and they blow it up to something that's much bigger than it truly is. You know what I hope to do. Find some ways to give back three skating and through music, you know, trying to do benefits trying to figure out ways through what I do and what I loved to do to hopefully actually give back in a tangible way. And I'm fortunate to have had this life that I've lead. It's been incredible. To be honest lotta times, I look at it outside of myself as though you know someone else's life because it was quite some time ago, heyday of it and the things that I had opportunity to do, and that were going on in that time and to continue on and to have people that actually, you know care about what I do and are a lot of fire emotionally impacted and inspired by and positive ways. As I. Wow. You know it, then you start to realize, oh, I guess I have a reason why I'm here because that's another aspect. What's the bigger picture? Why may even here dots the one that I go to. So often the big picture, you know, when you have children. I mean, that's the bigger picture, right? That's part of like, well, all that other stuff doesn't even matter if my child is healthy and happy and safe. Right? Lou. Excuse language. We'll Tommy all right. Wanted to thank you for being on the science of happiness. It's always a treat to see. You know, people who've had these completely original lives and done things in the world with kind of practice they choose. And and I think it's safe to say that you know the young kids who were skating today got a lot of perspective from your life and people listening to music got a lot of perspective from your life.
