Episode 066: To Have a Great Life, Ask Great Questions

The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your questions.  Most of those questions are subconscious.  If you start to pay attention, you may find that many are negative.  That’s what I found when I started listening to myself.  In this episode, we explore the anatomy of a good question.

Episode 065: Life Happens. Sing Anyway.

Life happens.  When we’re the least prepared.  Whether we like it or not.  We’re going along, and BAM!  Something unexpected.  That knocks us off our feet.  The breath out of us.  Sometimes it even changes us.  Cause us to shrink inside.  Make ourselves smaller to try and dodge the next blow.  I’ve learned the hard way that when I protect myself I experience two losses – the original one and the loss of myself.  I’m learning to sing my own song, and let that song weave around all of my life.  Even the painful parts.  I invite you to lift your voice and sing your own song with faith and hope.

Episode 063 – How to Go Deep (and we’re not talking about submarines)

If you do what everyone else does, you’ll end up like…everyone else.  As Andy Andrews says, if you want to be different, you need to act different.  Be an Original.  What does it take to pull that off?  Deep work.  On today’s episode, I go deep on Cal Newport’s book called “Deep Work”, and share some observations of my own.

How’s It Working For You?

That thing you do that makes you feel good in the moment, and then doesn’t satisfy.  Leaves you stuck.  Lonely.  Or angry with yourself.  That thing you think explains your actions, puts them into a story you’ve told yourself more than once.  That story that sounds good until you realize it rings hollow and empty.
