    How History Should Contribute to Your Work and Life with Jordan Raynor

    How History Should Contribute to Your Work and Life with Jordan Raynor

    Today’s guest is Jordan Raynor the best-selling author of multiple books I personally enjoyed including Called to Create and Redeeming Your Time. 
    Jordan’s newest book is titled The Word Before Work.
    During this episode we discuss why Jordan enjoys reading autobiographies from individuals that lived hundreds of years ago.
    If fame and fortune should be an indicator or motivator for how we should live.
    Why Jordan is planning to be completely off social media before the end of the year.
    How he believes following political news is quicksand and how when he worked in politics it made him an angry and bitter person.
    Jordan explains how we will all benefit from one true day off each week where we realize our value and worth just by existing and not by producing. In Jordan’s home they celebrate the Sabbath by not doing anything they feel they have to do, but only doing what they feel like they get to do.
    Finally, we discuss how Jordan feels true cultural change starts on the ground in the hearts and minds of the citizens.
    We discussed all of this and so much more during our conversation, so please sit back and enjoy the show. And send me a message with your thoughts @ JamesQuandahl on Instagram and Twitter… And if you’re enjoying the show please subscribe or follow and share this episode with a friend.

    James Quandahl Shares How To Build the Life of Your Dreams with Host David Wilson

    Welcome to The James Quandahl Show the space where I have conversations the world’s experts and share how you can live your life to the fullest and build the life of your dreams.
    Today’s episode is an interesting one because my friend and former podcast guest David Wilson puts me in the hot seat and digs deep into how I set goals and my family dream meeting process.
    We discuss how after fifteen years of working in retail I ripped the band-aid off and walked into my boss’s office and quit my job and moved across the country to start completely over.
    How this plan wasn’t all I thought it was going to be and actually pushed me into a deeper depression and frantic search to find my purpose and the meaning for my life.
    During this search I discovered most self-help books and podcast didn’t help at all and I stumbled across my own full-proof process to identify my true purpose by experimenting, looking into my past, and identifying my strengths.
    We discussed all of this and so much more during our conversation, so please sit back and enjoy yours truly in the hot seat.

    How to Keep Choosing Yourself When Times are Tough with James Altucher

    How to Keep Choosing Yourself When Times are Tough with James Altucher

    This is a very special episode because I finally had a chance to record a conversation with someone who needs no introduction for the listeners of this show… my good friend and mentor James Altucher.
    During today’s episode we discussed why James believes hosting a podcast is like taking classes from the best professors ever.
    The negative effect social media has on our focus, careers, life, etc.
    Why we have the tendency to do what is bad for us… even when we know it is bad.
    And how James feels it may be good to be a little anxious.
    We dig into why he doesn’t consider his writing or podcast to be in the self-help category, and instead how his books are a story of how he helped himself.
    Finally, we spoke about the ramifications of James’s viral article, NYC is Dead Forever, Here’s Why, and if James writes to be controversial.
    We discussed all of this and so much more in today’s episode, so please give it a listen and send me a message with your thoughts @ JamesQuandahl on Instagram and Twitter… And if you’re enjoying the show please subscribe or follow and share this episode with a friend.
