    BJ Fogg | Biggest Myth About Habits & 2 Strategies to Decreasing Screentime

    BJ Fogg | Biggest Myth About Habits & 2 Strategies to Decreasing Screentime

    In today’s episode, we cover the breaking and creation of habits with BJ Fogg. BJ founded the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University and teaches industry innovators how human behavior works.

     

    There are plenty of misconceptions floating around the internet surrounding making and breaking habits, so what is the biggest one, what does the science actually say about habit formation, and what can you start doing today to break those bad habits you’re feeling stuck with?

     

    What to Listen For
    What is Behavior Design and how can you use it to become the best version of yourself?
    What is the Tiny Habits method and how can we implement it now to start creating long lasting habits?
    Why is it important to start implementing a new habit by making it as easy as possible?
    What is the biggest myth about habit formation?
    Why can habit trackers be detrimental to healthy habit development?
    What is the secret to promoting positive behavioral changes in your kids?
    What is the difference between habit and compliance and why is one detrimental in the long run?
    Why are positive emotions so significant in the creation of new habits and how can we use that knowledge to build better habits faster?
    What are the 3 phases to getting rid of unwanted habits?
    What 2 strategies can you use to reduce your weekly screentime and be more present in social situations?

     

    Habit formation is not as simple as just doing something for a specific number of days. Many of us know there are things we only had to try once or twice before we started doing them everyday because it only took one or two times to recognize how good doing those things made us feel. Because we as humans don’t fully incorporate behavioral changes unless we want to, we must recognize and feel the positive impacts a new behavioral change will have in order to solidify it.

    Joe De Sena | Two Essential Habits to Crush 2021 Like a Spartan

    Joe De Sena | Two Essential Habits to Crush 2021 Like a Spartan

    In today’s episode, we cover mindset and determination with Joe De Sena. Joe is the CEO and founder of Spartan and the Death Race, and the NY Times best selling author of Spartan Up, Spartan Fit, and The Spartan Way.

    Success is never a straight path nor is it attained with ease, so if you want to increase your chances of success and improve your luck on the way up, what mindset should you adopt, how should you treat your body daily, and what can you learn from others who have come before you?

    What to Listen For
    What lessons did Joe De Sena learn from a crime boss as a kid that helped him achieve his success as CEO and founder of Spartan and the Death Race?
    What can you do to attract and keep amazing mentors who can steer you toward success and away from unnecessary failure?
    What 7 simple steps can you take everyday to live a long, healthy life?
    How did Joe De Sena’s career on Wall Street lead into his founding of Spartan races? 
    What can you do to stay focused on the success of your business during the early stages when you’re not turning a profit?
    How did Joe De Sena’s 10 Spartan principles come together?
    What can you do to stay optimistic when it feels like the world is falling apart around you?

    Challenge and adversity are not just great for building well rounded humans, but for proving to ourselves how badly we want something. Whether it’s achieving peak physical condition, a world class level professional skill set, building a thriving international business, and anything in between, you must apply yourself consistently over a long period of time to get anywhere close to the goal, and even then there are countless factors out of your control that could knock you down and prevent you from reaching the finish line. You must be willing to push through the days when you’re just not feeling it, everyone is doubting you, and life isn’t giving you a break. But even that mindset is not created overnight, so let’s get to work on building it today.

    Robert Rosenberg | The Secret to Growing a Successful Business and 3 Tips for Building an All-Star Team

    Robert Rosenberg | The Secret to Growing a Successful Business and 3 Tips for Building an All-Star Team

    In today’s episode, we cover business leadership with Robert Rosenberg. Robert was the chief executive officer of Dunkin' Donuts for thirty-five years from 1963 to 1998 and is the author of Around the Corner to Around the World: A Dozen Lessons I Learned Running Dunkin Donuts. 

     

    Running a business can teach anyone a lot about themselves and life, so what can we learn about leadership skills, social skills, and business management skills from the CEO of one of the most successful American businesses?

     

    What to Listen For
    What can you do to develop leadership skills coming out of school and entering the business world for the first time?
    How should you view failure when starting and running a business, and why can a fear of failure lead you away from success?
    What can you do when stepping into a leadership role to earn the respect you need to be a great leader?
    How did Robert M Rosenberg develop his excellent leadership skills during his successful career as the CEO of Dunkin’ Donuts?
    What 3 hiring lessons can you take away from the CEO of one of America’s most successful businesses so you don’t waste time and money hiring the wrong people?
    How important is culture when making hiring decisions and what can you do to make sure someone is a fit for your company culture?
    Why is it important to be willing to take responsibility for the mistakes in your company regardless of who might be directly at fault?

     

    Running a business can teach us a great deal about ourselves and life. A business owner must prioritize his business as well as the people he surrounds himself with. Just like in life, running a business requires consistent application of focus and cooperation with others who share your values. In addition, just like life, you must be willing to take risks and fail in order to become successful.

    Annie Duke | The Secret Ingredient to Making the RIGHT Decision When It Really Matters

    Annie Duke | The Secret Ingredient to Making the RIGHT Decision When It Really Matters

    In today’s episode, we cover decision making with Annie Duke. Annie is a former professional poker player and won more than $4 million in tournament poker before retiring from the game in 2012. She is a corporate speaker, consultant in the decision-making space, and the author of How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices. 

     

    Decision making is a skill we all use everyday but one that few of us master, so why is the skill of decision making overlooked, what can you do to master it, and what can we learn about decision making from a professional poker player?

     

    What to Listen For
    What can you do to improve your ability to read other people?
    How do professional poker players read people and what can you learn from their perspective?
    What is one common way most people are not good listeners?
    What lessons can you learn from poker players who can fake their confidence when they know they don’t have the winning hand? 
    What can you do to be confident in situations where you don’t feel confident in your ability to succeed?
    What is the main problem we have as decision makers and how can we prevent it from leading us to failure in the future?
    What technique can you use to stop making bad decisions now that you won’t be ashamed of tomorrow?

     

    Every decision we make is an educated guess because we can’t have all the necessary information to make “the best” decision. Simultaneously, if you were to attempt to gather every bit of information in order to make a decision, you would end up spending the rest of your life in analysis paralysis without ever making some of the more insignificant decisions we must make on a daily basis. We must have a consistent approach to decision making so we can make each decision with confidence, learn from our mistakes, and move forward with more experience so we can make better decisions in the future.

Lots of help and tips

At first I was lukewarm about this show because I’m pretty outgoing and can make friends with a rock. However, this podcast goes into so much deeper aspects of life and self. The lessons I’ve gotten from this show are priceless. The guests are amazing. For example after hearing Adam Grant I bought his book and it changed my life. Arguably opened my eyes to a whole new dimension of many of my relationships.

Definitely give a few shows of this podcast a try.

Thanks for the work you do.
