    Each year in January millions of people struggle to meet their New Years resolutions.

    HW 029: Being Trumped, and dealing with it

    HW 029: Being Trumped, and dealing with it

    Jon does a short episode about how he chose to handle his motorbike getting stolen.
    Chosing neither anger nor sadness, he looked ahead and chose action and a positive mindset, thereby harnessing what is called the undoing effect.
    What follows is a small attempt at drawing a parallel to the election of Donald Trump for President, and how people react in that situation.
    All the while trying to avoild making political statements. Did he succeed, or did we just witness the trainwreck of podcasts? Judge for yourself.
    For more on Trump and the consequenses I recommed the other podcasts mentioned on this show:
    Common Sense with Dan Carlin
    Waking Up with Sam Harris
