    Summary
    This was a live podcast I recorded and published the same day regarding how when we take on games in the world that other people aren't playing, or outside people's boxes of awareness, we often get the wrong social feedback loops in the short term. Being mindful of what to expect allows us to stay on course. Listen to the show to get a deeper insight into this phenomenon.

    #21: Women Who Date Low Quality Men (LIVE)

    #21: Women Who Date Low Quality Men (LIVE)

    Be cautious of women who has a history of dating lots of low quality men.

    While they may complain about them. Deep down they likes low quality men.

    If you’re a high quality man, she won’t be able to recognize it, and, she won’t be satisfied until you stoop down to her level / baseline of awareness that she’s used to.

    As sad as it is, it’s not your job to save her from that low level energy black hole.

    So set the conditions, see who shows up to the party. In this case, only take on high value behavior and 99 times out of 100 she will find a reason to remove herself from your life.

    It’s the same principle behind if you want to hire someone who will get shit done, hire a busy person.

    If you want to date a high quality woman, chances are, the vast majority of her ex boyfriends are all extraordinary human beings.

    #18: An Ontological Approach To Transforming Mental Health

    #18: An Ontological Approach To Transforming Mental Health

    Summary
    Eric Schleien narrates the introduction for his book, "Principles of Power: The Art & Wisdom of Badassery" as part of his podcast audio series.


    About Principles Of Power
    "Principles of Power can be related to as an advanced Coaching Handbook for Leaders. If you are a leader, an aspiring leader, a coach, consultant, or program facilitator, this book is designed for you. The material is delivered inside of a modern leadership context of service and contribution. Eric features many partnerships in Principles of Power. His inclusion of useful quotes from Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Werner Erhard, Nassim Taleb, Seth Godin, and many other leaders attests to the thinking and the research that went into the writing of this book. It is now undeniable that the understanding and implementation of powerful Listening, authentic Relationship, and a recognizable Permission to Lead, are cardinal distinctions of effective leadership. The word, ’cardinal’ has a Latin root and means ‘hinge’ – like a hinge on a gate. So, like a hinge, cardinal distinctions are connected to every nuance of leadership. You will see these distinctions in action in the background of Eric’s many leadership conversations. Authentic Relationship, for example, is essential to the effectiveness and empowerment of the participants and the leader. If authentic Relationship is missing, any outcome or result devolves to the result of domination or force, and is not an outcome of effective leadership. Consider this: Leadership is granted by the permission of those being led. Take a moment and allow that to sink in. The job of the leader is that of an environmentalist, providing the space for people to collaborate, flourish, and create. These two different activities, management and leadership are often commingled, especially in business schools and in the workplace. They are distinct and operate under different rules and measures. It’s like Checkers and Chess – Same game board, different games with different rules and outcomes. Disentangling and distinguishing the two arenas of activity grants power to both managers and leaders. So, the fundamental exercise of listening for people’s greatness is in the background of every sentence in this book. And there is much more…Principles of Power is strongly influenced by the transformational work of Werner Erhard. Much of the author’s thinking is also grounded in the classic distinctions of Tribal Leadership and the thinking of Warren Buffett and his partner, Charlie Munger. Those, plus Eric’s own extensive practical experience renders Principles of Power to be an extremely useful ‘go-to’ resource, filled with useful, implementable information, sprinkled liberally with memorable quotations from intelligent diverse sources – all apt and worth adding to YOUR leadership lexicon." - John King, co-author of Tribal Leadership

    #17: Transforming The Human Learning Experience Through Virtual Reality; The Experience of Education Post COVID - Zach Medina

    #17: Transforming The Human Learning Experience Through Virtual Reality; The Experience of Education Post COVID - Zach Medina

    Summary
    Today, Eric Schleien sits down with his guest, chief operations officer of Viral Ideas, Zach Medina. In this episode, they talk about the need to get into the 3D digital market, the skills and equipment required for VR and Augmented Reality, and the potential innovations to come out of them.


    Zach also discusses how businesses and the academe should invest in computers and other technological advances. He believes that companies have to get with the times and plan for the future if they want to survive. Take online classes, for instance. They no longer have to be just a zoom call with a teacher. Schools should aim for more interactive online courses to keep their students interested in learning at all. Time and time again, technology has proven to be a great learning tool for students, and it is about time schools caught on.


    Tune in to Eric and Zach’s discussion on why people are often afraid of technological advances and how it relates to why humanity is not innovating as much as it could. The two debate whether artificial intelligence is capable of creativity and whether advancing them would benefit or threaten humankind. Zach believes that people are wasting their potential to innovate even further, hence why, in Viral Ideas, they aim to play a role in the 3D market in hopes of advancing humanity even further.
