Track failure to win (and how to save money on your phone bill)

Track what you’re doing to become more productive. On this podcast, I want to warn you about people who do INTENSITY wrong (by going all caps, pushing hard and never touching the brakes. We get into how I’m treating my knee injury, the benefits of saunas and heat shock proteins and how I saved a ton of cash with a phone call to my telephone company (and you can, too!) I’ve come to a point…

Motivation: Don’t work so hard at the wrong things.

Motivation: What’s Yours? What works? A comment about motivation being “all that matters” really got me going this week. It didn’t motivate me. It irritated me. Worse, it was in the first line of a self-help book. I suspect there are many self-help books out there that intimidate or try to shame people into fulfilling their dreams.  I wrote a self-help book and I want to dispel a couple of ideas that are potentially dangerous.…

Choices: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Choices Must be Based on Good Data In my continuing quest to make better choices (a la Do the Thing) I need data. You probably need it, too. Let’s talk about some things you need to know to make those improved choices. I got quite a blow last week. The tax bill came due and, after too long at the accountant’s, the hammer fell. It turns out I need to pay twice as much to…

Vacations: Problems, Solutions and More Questions to Consider

Is it time for your next vacation? What if you can’t afford a vacation. Pop quiz, hotshot! What do you do? What do you do? (I love me a very dated reference from the movie Speed. Such a dumb, fun movie! Also, it was the last time Jeff Daniels was badass in a physical way.) Sorry for the delay in releasing this podcast. After updating my software, my computer is screwing up in a huge…

Death: How to Deal

Death is a fact of life but we’re generally not very well equipped to deal with it. In fact, most of us ignore it as long as possible. It’s not a satisfactory long-term strategy. Death comes for us all. I got quite a surprise in this regard this week and I want to share how I dealt with it. We’re going on a little field trip and I hope you will find the journey useful.…

The Big Calorie Lie and a Powerful Visualization

Visualization Makes a Better Day A good diet is not as simple as calories in/calories out. The kind of calories (and the hormones released are variables, too.) On today’s show, I talk briefly about the big lies nutrition labels tell us. Then, to ease your stress, we dig into a powerful visualization designed to make your life easier. Start with the key: a deep breath brings and an easy visualization slows your nervy nervous system…

William Shatner did a lot of things but he’s forever Captain James T. Kirk: A question to ponder

Today, a special question. Normally this would be a podcast day. However, I’ve run out of storage space on my Libsyn plan for this month. (New podcast next week!) I have a piece for you that’s crowd-tested and audience-approved. I posted the question below on Facebook this week and I got so much love for it I decided it’s podcast-replacement worthy!  FYI: To help out with bandwidth costs, please consider reaping the rewards of sponsorship or click the Become…

Workout: Fast and Efficient

I looked it up. As a noun or adjective, “workout” is one word. Still looks wrong to me but never mind…on today’s show: I’ll update you on my progress with The Wild Diet and share my experiments (and my alterations) to the One-Minute Workout (from last week’s podcast). We’ll get right down to the keys I use to get exercise done quickly so I can get on with my day. Of course, before embarking on any…

Food Management: Do the Less Normal Thing

New to the show? This one may change your life. At the beginning of the year, my friend and I were desperate to lose weight. We were eating better but our work didn’t show on the scale. Now it does! New Plan A: If you’re looking for a diet that isn’t a fad, is sustainable and has worked for many people (compete with delicious recipes and real food, I’ll share my experience so far with…
