    96: Triggers by Marhsall Goldsmith

    Do you ever find yourself reacting to something, then immediately saying something like, “I can’t believe I just did that?” It may not be your fault – at least, not entirely. Join Joe & Mike as they take a look at the triggers in their own environments and consider how to overcome them – without doing or saying something that they later regret.

Please add chapter bookmarks

Great podcast, but I would like to be able to skip all the follow-ups and jumped straight into the book discussion. Even moving through the book discussion with tractors will be very helpful.

For a busy homeschooling mom to have someone literally review books I have on my eternal “books I would like to read before I’m dead” list is a God-send!!!! Totally enjoy listening!!!! 5 star for sure!!!

Terrillb ,

Love their reviews

I’ve been a fan of theirs for a long time. I loved Mike on Asian Efficiency and hated to see him go. Definitely their loss.
