    Ep. 43: Create (don't find) yourself: Bob Dylan wisdom

    Ep. 43: Create (don't find) yourself: Bob Dylan wisdom

    What is a personal “culture” or identity? And is it ours to shape as we like, or is it determined by factors beyond our control?

    How did a Bob Dylan quote from an interview in Netflix’s Rolling Thunder Revue encapsulate an answer to this idea that gave Matthew to cheer?

    In this episode, Matthew gives a (revised) talk from his English conversation course at Hansin University in Korea, “Defining and Developing Your Own Personal Culture.” While many people today seek to find their identities in a group culture, both Bob Dylan and Matthew encourage otherwise.

    Ep. 42: Quiet the noise, turn up your own agenda (Matthew drops Facebook)

    Matthew had been feeling less than optimal for the past several months, but with one small change, his world has brightened again. The change was dramatic and almost immediate.

    Hear how revisiting the powerful ideas of a couple outstanding thinkers prompted Matthew to drop Facebook (almost entirely), and hear about the positive change in his life since.

    Learn what power there is in the question, “Does this promote my agenda?” and quiet the noise in your own life while turning up the things you love. It is a joyous place to be.

    Ep. 41: Don't be evicted from your own life

    Ep. 41: Don't be evicted from your own life

    Who is the imposter who grows inside us all, trying to evict us from our own bodies and lives? Why and how do we empower him?

    In the previous episode, Matthew discussed the importance of conviction in achieving health goals (and in all aspects of human flourishing). Here, he highlights and dissects a verse from Andrew Bird’s “Masterswarm” which encapsulates the issue and motivates Matthew when he’s on the road running.

    Hear why we must arrive at more clarity in our positive goals and then act with more conviction toward achieving them if we’re going to evict the would-be evictor.

    Ep. 40: Crave the body you want

    Ep. 40: Crave the body you want

    You can make your unwanted cravings disappear. Matthew has. And he’s here to describe how.

    The process requires regular introspection and reflection, and it is all about conviction. One negative: that you are convinced that the unwanted thing really is toxic to your agenda, and one positive: that you are convinced of the good of your agenda.

    In physical health, this means understanding clearly how and why the foods and behaviors that are thwarting you are actually thwarting you, and then how and why the state of optimal health feels and is so good for you that it’s addictive.

    Ep. 39: Lessons with emotional pain are lessons well learned: Let kids feel bad

    Ep. 39: Lessons with emotional pain are lessons well learned: Let kids feel bad

    We don’t want to see our kids hurting. We certainly don’t want to be the cause of their pain or the object of their hatred. This is the fear that keeps parents and teachers from showing their disappointment, anger, or indignation to kids, instead attempting to explain things to them in a gentler way with no expression of how their actions have made us feel.

    But kids need to feel some emotional pain in the form of guilt or shame when they are in the wrong.

    In this episode, Matthew recounts an anecdote from his childhood and how his father’s indignant and angry reaction impressed the lesson in him and forged an admirable character trait that serves him still today.

    Ep. 38: Aragorn at the Black gate: Leadership, heroism, & an appeal to values

    Ep. 38: Aragorn at the Black gate: Leadership, heroism, & an appeal to values

    What would embolden you to take on a suicide mission against a terrifying and colossal evil? What makes a leader? How can a leader be convincing and motivate those he proposes to lead? Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King shows us the answers.

    Using his famous speech at the Black Gate of Mordor for illustration, Matthew explains how a real leader “walks the walk” and motivates his troops by an appeal—not to sacrifice for a “noble cause greater than themselves”—but rather, to their own selfish values they stand to gain and wish to defend.

    Referring to a past article written on this blog, he breaks down the speech with passion, sharing why he thinks it is among the most powerful and moving epic battle speeches ever performed on film.
