I was reading through you know our list of Funny things that we call ourselves You know usually we say we duck duck go things so people don't have to and that that has to change now now We're chat GPT stuff so people don't have to Well we're Claude a eyeing stuff also you found a great site called Claude AI That you can upload documents to and tell it to give you summaries Mm -hmm yeah, it's really good. It's one of those tools that can help you learn faster Right as long as these tools don't become bastardized and be completely biased from a liberal bent right that only gives you Oh, I give you upload stuff, and it goes and we don't want to tell you that because it says things We don't want you to know. I think it's we're still early that that's not the case I I do think chat GPT is getting a little more biased Claude doesn't seem to be yet, right? But what I did was I found this document. I think I found it on a Twitter Thread or a YouTube video. I don't remember exactly where I found it But then if you go to the great taking dot -com you can actually get this PDF download the PDF then Upload it into Claude dot AI when I say Claude that's like Claude Monet CLA ude dot AI Upload it in there, and then just you can start asking it questions, right? You can do this with any PDF that you want to upload, but this this author right here David Roger Webb He's worked in finance and investing for many years, and he started to realize that most of these major economic crises are Intentionally by caused these very powerful people who control the central banks and the financial system, and then you go hey Travis What do you mean these powerful secretive people who own the control the central banks and the financial system? Well that goes back Joel to our G Edward Griffin Conversation with the creature from Jekyll Island and how they created the Federal Reserve Bank at the same time They created the IRS same time They created the Federal Reserve Note and the paper money and their goal has always been to over time Not immediately like the people who created it in Jekyll Island the in the Federal Reserve Bank They know they're not gonna be the ones that see this true fruit to fruition But they know their grandkids are probably gonna be the ones that lead it So there they want to consolidate power and control humanity and orchestrate this economic turmoil Over a long period of time like they don't have just a four -year cycle of goal like a typical president does Joel They have like hey, we're gonna do this over the next hundred hundred and twenty -five years right right. It's generational You know it's kind of the Chinese have been so successful because you know as you've noted before they have a 500 year plan And so the powers that be are looking you know forward to the generations to come here and going how do we bring this? To a place where we have all the control on the world and we decide how the world is run and so this book provides one theory on How this all comes together and how they bring about this great reset And so it doesn't mean that this is what is going to happen But all of the things we're going to talk about that are described in this book are definitely we're on that path To these things taking place and fortunately you know Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin and If it weren't for decentralized cryptocurrency, I don't know that you know there would even be a chance of Fighting back against the the tide that has been set against us to you Yeah, yeah, well what we're seeing is a collapse in monetary velocity Just just like what happened in the 1930s depression where money has an ebb and it flow It's like that would they'll flood the market with more paper dollars and printer go burr And then they get to the point where they start pulling that money back And there's less money and then that signals the end of the debt cycle Right according to this book and according to other experts, and that's what we're seeing right now is there's this slow collapse that's happening and That's what's most likely Motivating the great reset plan right so they're talking about oh, you'll have nothing and you'll be happy well What does that mean?

Bill Gates on the Important Choices He Made in His Tenure at Microsoft
"As the founder and operating ceo for twenty five years of one of the most prolific invaluable startups. I wanted to start with your perspective on the important choices that you made during your tenure microsoft and how you view those choices as they've related to the long-term growth story at the company well microsoft was very lucky in that we're not a capital intensive business. You know it was financed by money. I made in high school. And i did the school gasoline and there was all sorts of things you can do and make money fairly easily in those days. 'cause i'm people who knew how to do. Software things was was very small. We did take an investment. We sold five percent of the company and by the way from twenty million to win a million dollars from venture firm dave mark carts venture them just because we wanted to have him actually. It was more senior people but it ended up being him. Advise us about various choices we had to make and those early days we were because we knew that software was this magical thing and it was enabled because the chip was magical and weirdly. People didn't understand that. Moore's law essentially said that computing power would be infinite and so the best way to think about it was to say okay. Software would be the limiting factor towards any sort of digitally assisted activity and we thought of ourselves as a software company. We ended up competing with companies that were single product companies. so like. I wonder if anybody's here's ever heard like ashton tape or has anybody ever heard ashton. Okay good was a great article where i gave a hardcore speech about our database in it. Said gate says ashton-tate never existed. But i did actually say that. I said that they might cease to exist at some point anyway very competitive. There was a spreadsheet called one-two-three a word processor called wordperfect so these were single product companies and in terms of really building your engineering tools. You're international distribution sales consulting. How you work with corporate tells forced you thought of yourself as a software company and a platform company was very different than saying okay. I have one two three. Which was a lotus spreadsheet products. So we didn't feel for ambition but then the intensity of executing on it was super super
A Discussion on Power With Prof. Dacher Keltner, PhD
"Us today to keller. It's great to be with him here. Speaking of psychology we often start by defining terms. And i asked this question in the introduction. What is power. how do you define it. And is your definition different from machiavelli's. Yeah you know this turns out to be one of the hardest things to do in the science of power bertrand russell. The great philosopher wrote that power is the basic medium of social life. And as i've studied power of my colleagues for twenty five years i tend to agree. It's it's just everywhere. And that makes it hard to define. And we really align and their various definitions of we really aligned with somebody named steven lukes who has a wonderful treatment of power. Assess the gist. That power is your capacity to alter the states of other people or to influence others right so power is different from status. Which cameron anderson has studied. Which is the respect you get from your peers and your colleagues in the people around you. Power is different than wealth and class and in fact in our work those two contracts only correllated about point one five point two power is different from dominance which is strategies to coerce people to manipulate. Power is your capacity to influence and alter the states of mind of people around you too. Why do some people seek power. What are the psychosocial hallmarks of people who actively want power. Well this is an old question. People like david winter really were interested in it. It's it you know. There are individual differences in how much we want power. So people want the spotlight. They wanna lead. They have certain characteristics They like power they enjoy it there a little bit more extroverted why we want that. Is i think one of the really subtle lessons of this research. Which is that. There are a lot of good things that come with power people feel better. They are happier. They have more freedom. They have more connections with others. They enjoy more resources. So there are lot of good reasons for wanting power and and we shouldn't condemn people for that aspiration. Why

"Her first podcast mar netto talk to us about relaxed kids and then toward the end of the podcast. She talked a little bit about her. New passion called. Ignite your creative spark where she works with women. And i when she told me about this. I lit up. Because i think this is absolutely fabulous and it goes right along with why we started beyond picket fences. About how as as women specifically we get trapped in kind of a the monotony of life. And what we should be doing what we're told to do and we just kind of go through the motions and then eventually we kind of lose ourselves. And we've talked about that quite a bit and lots of other podcasts with other women and with with each other so when you said you have this program i just. I'm so interesting. And i'm sure a lot of people are so. Can you talk to us about why you started. Ignite your creative spark and what it is. Yes so it was just literally at the beginning of this year. I thought i wanted to create a membership club. And i wasn't really sure what i wanted to do. I thought it would be something to relax. Kids and the more. I just sat down very quietly. I my actual thing. You know why. I'm here on this. Earth is my main value would be creativity. That is the thing that has driven me all the way. Through all my work. I used to for twenty five years. Direct to children's pantomime. And do the costumes and i wrote the show's sa- creativity at writing. The books has been my thread. And so i felt it wouldn't be so nice to have a club with other women where we could just be creative. Almost like unite like ago guide club for women. And so i still.

And the idea is that encouraging women to make that make an ordinary life because our lives are ordinary magical special extraordinary and colorful
How to Launch Your Online Business with Author Jeff Walker
"Came on back then and you talked about your new york times number one bestseller and here. We are seven years later your writing a new addition to this masterpiece why the book contains this formula. I've been developing now for twenty five years. It sounds ridiculous. Twenty five years and that formula is going to keep on working because it's based on human psychology. It's based on the way we make decisions and it's taking that though that psychology and it's putting it to use in your promotion so you can launch whatever you want without online course. Membership site podcast. Even just doesn't matter. It's how to launch and so the book was the for. The first edition was published in two thousand fourteen. Two reasons why updated first of all people go onto amazon and they see it was published in two thousand fourteen. And they're like well. This must be old. I'm not going to get it because things move so quickly. Well that's partially true. The tactics change but the strategies strategies remain so in a new edition. We kept all the old strategies that keep on working but we added the new tactics that that are part of the world. We live in today. So for instance back in two thousand fourteen pay traffic. You know using adds to drive people into your offers was a thing but it wasn't a thing at the level. It is right now so i had to update to show how to use. Pay traffic within your launches. Same thing with social media shirt. Social media was a thing in two thousand fourteen but it wasn't everything the way. It is now so i had update to show how to use social within your launches and then another thing. Is the tools keep involving. When i first started out launches. We're literally via email. That was the only tool we had. Then eventually we had blogs. So i could do blog posts then eventually. We had online audio then. Very simple screen capture online video than it was fancier video and then we started using narrative narrative-driven driven really fancy video as bureau and everything. Now we have live broadcasts. We can actually broadcast live via any number of different tools and so many the launch is not all of them but many of the launches now us live video and live streaming as part of the lodge. So i had to update with that another thing and i don't. I'm sort of giving the whole overview here right now but the way we actually once you go through your pre launch phase and you get into your open cart. That has completely changed as well. So i had to update for all the new tactics and the new tools that we've got these days that we didn't have in two thousand fourteen

Why is it that that group seems at times we most enthusiastic about deconstruction charlie. You're getting one of my biggest pet peeves nov life. I would say. I have been frustrated by this question for virtually since high school i. I identified as someone right of center. Broadly speaking i in like seventh and eighth grade a. basically since high school. I've just been utterly baffled by this. I mean obviously like immense amount of ink has been spilled on this very quiet and lots of books have been written about the look the short answer that i can give. Is that most american jews today. you know we're in the twenty one are frankly a hundred years no more than one hundred twenty eight hundred twenty five years removed from their ancestors from the great ellis island immigration wave right Meeting speak personally here. I mean You know my My grandparents mostly came then immigration wave They grew up in those traditional like low.

The graveyard shift overnight six days a week in deep in the heart of brooklyn so there was this scrappy kind of working class mentality. That kind of Naturally inured itself kind of fdr style.

This like it was mother's

"So max. It's early august college. Football season is still about a month. Away has the news of the past. Few days really destroyed your final quiet days of summer. Yes certainly while to think that you know. Usually in in her line of work media days tend to kind of be that starting point for us of it's all downhill from there and coincidentally the big twelve just had their media days in arlington texas. A couple of weeks ago. Not a word was mentioned of realignment or fears of realignment or of texas and oklahoma being on the way out or on the fence or anything and so forever to go through all that sort of polite typical preseason talk and stuff and then within a week the world finds out about the scheme that texas and oklahoma had in the works clearly for quite a while here pretty jarring just for everybody. Well the reason why we brought you on. Max is to explain what in the world is going on in the big twelve and also these claims being made against espn and what to make of all of this. So let's start here. Can you describe how important the two teams that will be leaving. The big twelve texas and oklahoma are to this conference. It's really hard to some. How much texas. And oklahoma mean to the big twelve from a financial standpoint from just sort of a brand perception standpoint. These are the two powerhouses of the conference. They are always the two programs that rate the highest in recruiting the get the best players square. Marvin talented fresca. Certainly texas has struggled to win in a big way over the last decade. Despite having so many good players but oklahoma's one six street conference titles is the big twelve champion for the sixth year in a row for the fourteenth time in the twenty five year.

Coming of Age During the AIDS Crisis
"New york city in the early nineteen eighty s. There was only one place to go if you wanted to do something to help. In the aids crisis an old brick townhouse on west twenty second street in chelsea when i came here volunteer nineteen eighty-four. It was a very different neighborhood. And i was different to. I'm trying to put myself back in my twenty five year. Old self shoes. I'm retracing my steps. And i'm retracing the steps of hundreds of gmac. Volunteers and staff like bill cook. So i'm here with bill cox in front of colonial house. Em which is a bed-and-breakfast on west twenty second street in new york city and it is nearly forty years. Since this was the headquarters of the game health crisis As a plaque on the outside of the building that notes that it's the i was the first permanent home of the game and tells crisis and bill. Maybe you can describe to me what we're looking at Now we're looking at a beautiful breakfast. That has window boxes flowers beautiful ironwork and it bears no relation to what it was like when i volunteer here. I mean the street was nothing like it is today so it was a lot of working class people and for people living in houses world houses that have been broken up that were single family homes in the nineteenth century. Broken up into single-room-occupancy. With bathroom a bathroom on the hall. That's right. there was a bathroom down the hall. It was a run down. Old ramshackle buildings. So i would i pass by here. I don't know how many times because i was frightened really to go to work to volunteer. I didn't know what i would do. I didn't know if i had any qualifications. I didn't know what what i would find. Really sort of terrified. And i didn't know whether who i would be seeing what i be seeing people people with as pwa's which of course that's what we refer to. When waste i started volunteering. So finally i worked up my courage. You know if. I'm not gonna do it. Who's gonna do
What Is Your Love Language?
"Let's talk about the love languages. Maybe you've heard of this concept. The five lovling. Just comes from dr gary chapman. He's american author. He's a pastor radio talk show host and he described five ways romantic partners express and receive love so the basic idea is that everyone gives and receives love differently but when we figure our language and our partners will better be able to communicate our love and strengthen our relationships and the cool thing is that gary chapman was a pastor so he was like seeing couples for like twenty five years. And that's how we pinpointed these and they make a lot of sense and in fact i've often recommended. Two couples figure your partners lovling which is like an easy way to jump. Start a more loving relationship. It's helped a lot of couples get through resentments and not going to solve all your problems. But it's really eye-opening and ever since i i learned about the love languages probably almost a decade ago. I think about it all the time. I think about it with people my life. It's not just lovers. I think about my own languages. I think about my employees. So it's really helpful so i just wanted to break it down for you so you understand it. So there's five ways of experiencing love and we want all of these. Don't get me wrong but we all tend to have one to two primary love languages for example one of them's gifts and sure i love getting a gift. But that's not my primary love language. And i just wanted to. You remember that we can express all the love languages and they're all important but what we're talking about here is finding out your primary love language. So what are the five languages. It's acts of service gift-giving physical touch quality time and words of affirmation

"twenty five years later" Discussed on WorkLife with Adam Grant
"Is that evidence or statistics about violence are given and then are simply attributed to what he repeatedly throughout the book calls mean-spiritedness and that. It's i suppose understandable if still questionable that somebody could write that in the mid ninety s. But what's really really appalling to me. is that. This book was republished twenty-five years later and nobody thought to revisit the way that these claims were being framed. Wow i yeah i mean it's in some ways. There's a part of me that that sympathizes because this is what we do is psychologists. You're right about individuals and we study small groups and like most psychologists are not good sociologists at the same time though to completely ignore the broader cultural and structural forces that that shape weather delay of gratification is taught whether it's valued whether it's actually a risk factor as opposed to a skill. That does seem dangerous. I mean it just does seem to me like psychologists need to become better sociologists but particularly if you're writing a book that ease for a general audience right if you're not presenting people with the actual research if you're not unfolding where your numbers come from then. I think it's even more incumbent on you to make your claims as defensible and to contextualized them as richly and as responsibly. As you can. Yeah well that. I guess that that maybe takes us to the second the second part of your critique which is this whole idea that emotional intelligence is carpet control. I especially over the past year during the pandemic. I have been deeply disturbed by the fact that so many organizations said okay. You know what we're we're obviously in a difficult situation right now. So we're gonna train you in emotional intelligence. We're gonna teach you to manage all your stress as opposed to saying you know what maybe this is the right time to finally fire some abusive bosses and start eliminating oppressive rules.

They said well. It's almost twenty five years later now and we are seeing how it worked out. Thanks to a study examining. The massive condom giveaway. Researchers wanted to know if the free condoms had any effect on teen pregnancy rates. The short answer is yes it did. The study was published by the national bureau of economic research. Shows clear evidence that access to condoms in schools leads to an increase in teenage fertility. Bottom line schools gave teenager condoms and permission to have sex and teenagers. You rose to the occasion. They had sex now. Who could have predicted that. Will lots of people predicted. I predicted it.

It speaks a lot louder than your resume relinking. So i'll say this. I'm on my behalf. You know this. Adrian like there was a period where i was a young lawyer. Wanted to get into early stage companies and i remember going to this this panel at general assembly bride in flat iron where it was a bunch of lawyers. Venture capitalists telling their story right.

Now i'm in venture capital and for me. That was the wakeup moment right leg. You gotta do it or you know you're gonna be stuck here watching other people do it. And that's why. I think you and i become such good friends over the years like when i think about this like fearless serial entrepreneur year. One of the people that that comes to mind and so you know my question for you is really hard you do it.

I've i speak so frequently with folks that are at you know very lucrative jobs managers at google named big tech company here and there are things that like.

I casino like we had a rough. We did not have enough. I you know. I've been forced into unfortunate. Visiting people added a lot rougher than we had but the sense of like.

I've never been to a place that didn't have running. I'm sure they exist. I'm sure this is areas whatever. It doesn't have running water. I'm sure it exists. But all that to say like the places were i've been to. I've grown. I've slept and i've been to. That's not the case right or even like electricity being like a constant thing or even to internet right and so that context which again like growing up like it didn't seem like oh i'm learning about like i don't know i'm learning about having conviction in myself and i'm learning gumption like i didn't think of it like that but like seeing that like that was powered me like okay.

"We continue to pursue the path of data security privacy and and transparency And that continues to work not only for the insurance industry but for a lot of industries the applications may be a little bit different that sit on top of the blockchain technology but blockchain itself continues to do everything we hoped. It would do brilliant. Now thank you very much for for that definition. Now brian. i love to get your definition of blockchain. Well john pretty much nailed it. I mean it is about a shared system of record amongst participants in a commercial ecosystem. It's something that's intended to be Flat and neutral and and and something shared. But you know. I actually compare it to In the mid nineties and late nineties when a group of folks were talking about this weird thing called free software and then the open source. Software term. Came around and people kept asking well. There's a bunch of crazy projects out there that have no justifiable economic basis behind them. You know the apache software project the the lennox project like i how. How are these things you know. Where's the big money what. Vc would be crazy enough to invest in an open source project. As fool's doing this entirely for charisma and good vibes rather than solving a real problem and of course we now know twenty five years later That there are real problem solved with open source software but getting these things to work in a commercial context does require a little bit of selflessness. Does require a little bit of thinking about how do we Divide or our investments in things that are table stakes in this industry rather than things that we can actually spend more money on things that provide competitive advantage and so working with joan and talking about the potential for this project in the insurance industry. has been interesting. It's obviously been a challenge. I think in some ways. Industries like insurance have been conservative about a new technologies and general adoption of open source software. Then i think are rightfully conservative in their adoption of blockchain technology. Now we've shown you know. This thing is boring enough. This thing is routine enough especially if it is not about. Ico's and cryptocurrencies and coin base. And all that kind of stuff. This is about solving some real problems particularly problems that are created for us by the regulatory environment That are attempts to try to you. Know solve this problem with understanding risk in a world that is becoming much much riskier much more catastrophic every year. It seems and so i for me. This definition is is not just specifically about a data structure but is more generally about. How do we organize industry to solve a collective problem. And i think a shared system of record with automation through smart contracts is an essential part of of solving these funds doing that in an audible and verifiable and regulate the way brilliant brilliant..

I don't mind if you have a relationship with somebody else as long as you know. I'm not forced to have a relationship with you if i don't want so. I made that decision. That this is not sustainable. Because tried to talk we had discussions. And when i tried to express i got beat up and when i just felt like you know my waist doesn't count then i had to take action and whatever opportunity i could find. It was five days later. I just decided that. I am capable. I can take care of myself. I will find way my my way back and that was the original plan. I was just going to leave. I just knew chicago is the nearest city. And i had a friend from ed school. Who is doing residency. I figured i'll get there and then i'll just Fly back to india borrow money. I'll fly back to india. I'm a physician in india. I can work my way alpay again. And that's that as far as you're saying that this is not supported it's would absolutely not be supported by my family's i had a plan to just go somewhere that they didn't even know where i was just so that they didn't have to. You know first of all that the they would not accept it and who knows what that would have resulted in two and also it's not looked upon very kindly culturally to for you to have a daughter who's divorced and of course despite all the education and their theoretical believes they ultimately didn't believe that to some extent of woman needs to compromise and the woman was their their sister here and so but this sister was not ready to compromise. So i was. That was my plan. I was gonna leave is gonna make a life of my own. But because i couldn't find my passport i couldn't leave the country and here i am twenty five years later. Well that is just a remarkable story of courage and and really. I can't thank you enough for sharing it because if there is somebody listening to this and i know there will be. I truly hope that you find the strength and courage to think about leaving a violent situation. And i recognize situation different. I will have links and the podcast notes. Various organizations around the wall that are committed to helping survivors of domestic violence and both in the united states and amongst our diaspora. So thank.

"So he asked me is an important. It's huge because it may be the man i am today. Those each of those guys you know that. Maybe i didn't appreciate even maybe one of my mom's boyfriends at the time or whatever that came in each of those men that god brought to my life brought some type of benefit and to me. You know as long as you're as you're learning if you have the ability to learn than there it's naturally loss. I mean there be the feeling of lawsuit there may be some real loss but if you can come out with some type of learning out of a situation than you can come out with a win. Yeah that's awesome man. There's so much there it's great. The mentorship piece is so important. I think we miss it. When we're young being mentors are being helped whether it's from father other people in our lives but then i think as middle aged or older men we sometimes forget the responsibility that we have to then pay it forward for them to reach back and say who can i mentor. Who can i help. And and how can. I be an encouragement to them. There's really nothing greater in life than to invest in someone who carry on after after. You're gone sure. I i had the ability Here in the restaurant we had. We had a bunch of boys that came in a bunch of college bound. Baseball players came in and they were eating in the restaurant and had a little talk with them. That got pretty serious in a hurry and you know it's executive that mentor Situation yeah i remember when i was getting married. There was an older marine. That that was actually a master sergeant that that i knew outside of work and He had the courage to sit down with me and tell me as young marine who he deployed with and knew that i was little little wild when it went to To the other side of the bond on their he's like you know he's like this is going to be your wife he said this is going to be the mouth. Kiss your children and these are no. There's things that you do and don't do with a wife and sees you ask them see she don't ask and and let me tell you. I've used that advice in my marriage. And i've been married for twenty five years now. Ultimately the result left the marine corps is for my wife and nocco. She asked me to but because she said no. If i didn't want to leave them rink what we probably weren't gonna make it out to make a really hard decision and And twenty five years later off. Like i made a the correct decision And she's an incredible woman. But you know that that advice. He gave me me to to not make mistakes that i saw the marines. May you know and and now so that that mentor piece. Like you said it's it's it's masked back to these boys being here in the restaurant. These baseball players we they're talking and somehow this This child trafficking situation that is going on..
