Episode 56:Davidson Hang Reflections: Tony Robbins Unleash The Power from Within
Today I'm attending Tony Robbins 4 day event called Unleash the Power from Within. I'm excited to learn some new things. These have been the reflections for the week.
Episode 55: Davidson Hang Reflections: Networking 101 and Building Relationships
My good friend Gina asked me to share tips on networking and how to approach building relationships.
I want to share the following tips that have served me well in cultivating new relationships and making it a priority to stay in touch with friends and family.
Figure out who you want to surround yourself with. Who lights you up, and who makes you happy? Double down on those relationships. Ryan Johnson, Emily Linder, Zack Mulhall, Edwin Aristor, and Ivana Pham are some of the people who come to mind whenever I catch up with them, I immediately feel lifted. We all have people who come to mind that automatically brighten the room when they enter it.
Intentionally block off time on your calendar to dedicate to coffee chats.
Don't be afraid to proactively put time on their calendar. Obviously, ask for permission first but take the initiative and be the one to look through their calendar to eliminate any friction.
Not every conversation has to be productive. Some of my most connected 1on1 coffee chats were trying to get to know each other better. Not everyone would agree with me here, but until they understand you, they won't be able to help you.
Write hand written cards- getting birthday cards in the mail and even a thoughtful voicemail or voice msg saying Happy Birthday can make someone's day and is not too time-consuming.
Manage your energy- if you are burnt out and are too tired or if you label yourself an introvert. Make small little habit changes. You don't have to jump off the deep end tomorrow. Just add one more coffee per week if that's your cup of tea.
Update your mentors and let them know what's going on. People love it that you are implementing the feedback that you are getting from other managers and leaders. That's the whole reason why people get into executive positions so that they can ultimately mentor, coach, and help ICs get promoted and progress in their careers.
Have fun- networking is fun. If you relate to networking has something you hate of course, you are going not to like it. Meeting new people is fun. You get to learn something new, and you get to hear another person's perspective. Everyone has value to give- even if you don't necessarily agree, those are often the conversations I've personally learned the most. For instance, when I meet someone who is process driven and is very systematic in their thinking, I can save time as someone who would instead go with the flow and be in the moment.
Have relationship goals- think of ways to brighten someone's day, even if it sends them a quick gratitude video or something different. The more impact you have in the world, the more purpose and driven you become.
Make it a game- sometimes at networking events or anything involving meeting new people- I'll have a goal to build three stronger relationships throughout the hour event. Do something that pushes you outside your comfort zone, and you will grow tremendously because of it.

Episode 55: Davidson Hang Reflections: 10 actions you can take to increase your mental health
I know it was on October 10th, but I wanted to relax on my weekend, and I went on a long hike, which was extremely relaxing and much needed after being cooped up inside of a house for this long.
These are ten ways and things I have done to help me cultivate a positive mental state.
1. Journaling exercises- I purchase Moleskine journals because I enjoy the look and feel. Journaling every day allows me to process things think about the good, the bad, and what I can improve on, and what I appreciated about my day. A journal entry can contain everything from gratitude for the mentors and people who have made a positive impact in my life, or it can be a running to-do list that I haven't completed, and when I wake up in the morning, I can tackle these unresolved items/ emails.
2. Gratitude practices: I have a gratitude journal, and I create videos on things that I am grateful to share with the world to spread positivity and acknowledge people who have impacted my life.
3. Couple's Journal/activities- being able to block off time and intentionally do things that we enjoy together, like playing video games, helps us connect with each other and unplug from our work. We have been playing the mobile League of Legends, and it's been a lot of fun. She’s really a pro, and we win so many games together. It helps bring us closer when we do cooperative games like Borderlands and League.
4. Create a space to reflect and gather your thoughts- I work with therapists, coaches, and mentors to talk through some of the issues and talk through some of the anxieties we have and that I come up against. Everything from imposter syndrome and working in a remote environment. Processing the loss of my workplace working in the beautiful Empire State building is something that I had to come to terms with. It sounds silly but losing that was a big part of my life but then realizing how much of my identity was tied to work that I made a commitment that I will be dedicated to my job but it will not define me to the point of losing my true identity.
5. Meditation practice- Luckily, we have cool support structures like Scott’s Month of October Mindfulness challenge, where we do 20+ mindfulness meditations. We run a daily meditation group every morning at 9:15. One of my favorites is Transcendental Meditation. I’ve tried many different types of meditation, and this has been my favorite so far. I always feel a sense of calm, and it helps me tap into my intuition.
6. Doubling down on relationships and friends- The men's group that I created we meet every month and have a buddy system where we get closer to our buddies. That has served me so much in being able to have deeper connections and create separation. We can be vulnerable and talk about our insecurities and our life story. It’s a beautiful thing when men come together to share vulnerably about what it means to be a father. You don’t feel alone when you have a group of men who talk openly about their feelings and what they are out to create in the world.
7. Creating boundaries- being able to turn off helps so much- With everyone working from home. Well, a large portion of us is. Turn off notifications when you leave for the workday and make sure you aren’t overloading your calendar so that you still make time for yourself is crucial- remember this is a marathon, not a sprint. I can do a much better job at this, but I did take 3 PTO days the last three workdays, which helped unwind going for a long hike.
8. Block off time for just you- Self-time for me looks like a reflection, doing what I love to do that sources me.
9. Reading a lovely book and biography helps me relax. I enjoy a nice story or reading about these past great leaders like Ben Franklin, Tesla, and Leonardo Davinci’s lives that inspire me and takes me away from thinking all of the time. I can truly unwind and be myself.
10. The top t
