    Summary: On this episode of the Act To Live Podcast, Scott and Jaime explore the phenomenon commonly known in the sports world as ‘being in the zone.’ After defining the phenomenon and sharing their own personal experiences trying to get into the zone, the duo talks about the nine dimensions of the zone - balance between challenge and skill, concentration, action, clear goals, clear feedback, control, no self-criticism, time perception, and feeling high.

    Episode #67: Taking Ownership of Our…Stuff!

    Episode #67: Taking Ownership of Our…Stuff!

    Summary: On this episode of the Act To Live Podcast, Scott and Jaime talk about ownership - why might it be easier to ‘own’ something that went well or we’re proud of than to ‘own’ something that didn’t go well or that upset another person? Why do many of us have the tendency to ‘own’ things that we have no role in or control over? The duo discusses the complex nature of ownership and ways that we can take one step forward in owning our ‘stuff.’ 
    Action Event of the Week: Try any or all of the following - 1) take ownership for something that went well; 2) take ownership of thing that did not go well; 3) let go of your tendency to own things that you have no control over. What did you notice?

    Episode #66: What do you regret? How can you move forward?

    Summary: On this episode of the Act To Live Podcast, Scott and Jaime talk about their experiences and struggles with regret.

How might we cope with regret and keep moving forward? 
    Action Event of the Week: Think about a current regret - whether it’s something you’ve done, haven’t done, etc. Then try one of the four coping strategies discussed in this episode -  harness the functional aspects; if there is nothing you can do to change the situation, let it go; make sure you’re not taking too much of the blame; and/or reframe the situation.

    Episode #65: The Power of ‘YET’

    Episode #65: The Power of ‘YET’

    Summary: On this episode of the Act To Live Podcast, Scott and Jaime explore the word ‘YET.’ Adding this powerful word to our vocabulary (both when talking to others and ourselves) encourages learning, helps us to maintain engagement - especially in difficult tasks, and increases our confidence when working/interacting with challenging people. The duo talks about their own experiences using the word ‘yet’ and the ways in which this shift in mindset has led to action in various aspects of their lives. 
    Action Event of the Week: Think about something that you’ve always wanted to do and have not started ‘YET.’ What is the first little step you can take on your journey of action? Give it a try and see how it goes.
