Stuff I Learned Yesterday is a podcast intended to motivate and inspire you to learn something everyday. I believe that if you aren't learning, you aren't living. By taking time to reflect and learn something every day, you will not only improve yourself and your life, you will help make the world a better place.

SILY Episode 562 – Backside of a Sunrise
When I was in high school I would occasionally go camping with my friends Van and Jason. It was always a lot of fun just hanging out with my friends and goofing off. We'd find a good spot on one of the hundreds of acres owned by Van's parents, and make camp for the night. We'd build a campfire, stretch out our sleeping bags, and eventually we'd go to sleep right there under the stars. No RV. Not even a tent. Read More...

SILY Episode 560 – Choosing Joy
My last story here on Stuff I Learned Yesterday occurred nearly 13 years ago. I’ve told this story a couple times over the last couple weeks, drawing out different applications each time I tell it. In hindsight, some experiences become more meaningful the older I get. At the time they’re awkward and hard, but time eases the pain of their acute sting and I draw more insight about who I was then because of who I am now.
I want to set the stage for you a little bit before I tell you the story. Read more...
SILY Episode 559 – Transition Well
Today I talk about the next steps. You see sometimes taking sabbaticals or even vacations are not enough. Sometimes we have give things up or step back. But there are right ways and wrong ways to transition.
I know things happen for a reason. A lot of these transitions started earlier in the year. So when I sat down in August to write a SILY episode, transitioning well was fresh on my mind. I had no clue that the very podcast I was writing for would be transitioning away. But I’m thankful for the lessons in transitioning well. Read more…

I learn something new every time I listen
I am not going to say that I listen to every episode but I have listen to many of these. The various hosts do a wonderful job at sharing stories from their lives in hopes of helping the listener learn something new. This show gets me to think and re-examine my life. Lately it has been really trippy because I have been going through a lot of things in my life and lately every episode has been really helpful with the chalenges I've been facing. To all the hosts of this show past, present, and future... THANK YOU. Thanking for sharing your life with me. Hopefully one day I can return the favor on the Friday Forum.
Darrell and the rest of the presenters do a wonderful job. I always know that they will have a thoughtful, well-planned podcast. This podcast picks me up when I need it and reminds me to be my best every day.
I love getting bite sized bits of information that I find helpful. Even if you don't listen to every episode there will be at least one per week that applies to something that you would find helpful.
