    July 1, 2022 Is Your Focus Being Stolen From You? This Week's Best Friday Ever

    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Our ability to pay attention is collapsing. From the New York Times bestselling author of Chasing the Scream and Lost Connections comes a groundbreaking examination of why this is happening—and how to get our attention back.“The book the world needs in order to win the war on distraction.”—Adam Grant, author of Think Again“Read this book to save your mind.”—Susan Cain, author of Quiet In the United States, teenagers can focus on one task for only sixty-five seconds at a time, and office workers average only three minutes. Like so many of us, Johann Hari was finding that constantly switching from device to device and tab to tab was a diminishing and depressing way to live. He tried all sorts of self-help solutions—even abandoning his phone for three months—but nothing seemed to work. So Hari went on an epic journey across the world to interview the leading experts on human attention—and he discovered that everything we think we know about this crisis is wrong. We think our inability to focus is a personal failure to exert enough willpower over our devices. The truth is even more disturbing: our focus has been stolen by powerful external forces that have left us uniquely vulnerable to corporations determined to raid our attention for profit. Hari found that there are twelve deep causes of this crisis, from the decline of mind-wandering to rising pollution, all of which have robbed some of our attention. In Stolen Focus, he introduces readers to Silicon Valley dissidents who learned to hack human attention, and veterinarians who diagnose dogs with ADHD. He explores a favela in Rio de Janeiro where everyone lost their attention in a particularly surreal way, and an office in New Zealand that discovered a remarkable technique to restore workers’ productivity. Crucially, Hari learned how we can reclaim our focus—as individuals, and as a society—if we are determined to fight for it. Stolen Focus will transform the debate about attention and finally show us how to get it back.

    June 24, 2022 Best Friday Ever-Growth vs. Fixed Mindset

    June 24, 2022 Best Friday Ever-Growth vs. Fixed Mindset

    Fixed vs. Growth Mindset







    Do you have a fixed or a growth mindset? It can have a huge impact on your life. As someone who suffered from a fixed mindset for years I’ve since learned to develop a growth mindset. Thanks to the work of Dr. Carol Dweck many people can now change the trajectory of their entire future by adopting a growth mindset in their work, their relationships and their overall interaction with their world. Checkout the Vitruvian Lab Training in the Apple iTunes Store. I will soon be launching an entire course on developing a growth mindset. #caroldweck #growthmindset #improvealwaysinallways

    June 21, 2022 #176 Derek Sivers (Sort of). Three Questions to and Answers from a Modern Sage

    June 21, 2022 #176 Derek Sivers (Sort of). Three Questions to and Answers from a Modern Sage

    Derek Sivers







    Derek Sivers is a modern sage. He’s been wildly successful by all the typical measures, but that’s not why I like him and his work. Nope. It’s because Derek seems to have beaten the game of life.







    He lives on his terms. Just because everyone thinks you should sell your company and make millions and then live the FU money life, Derek does not. He keeps things simple. He doesn’t waste time, words or seemingly any aspect of life.







    He appears to live one of the most contented and thoughtful lives of anyone I’ve witnessed. So naturally when read his book, “Anything You Want,” and saw his invitation to email him I jumped at the opportunity.







    Where one of my other virtual mentors and close friend of Derek’s Tim Ferriss erects walls and fortresses to keep everyone not in his inner circle out (and I don’t blame him) Derek says, come on in. I’ll talk to you.







    So I emailed him. Eventually, he responded and then multiple emails back and forth later we had some digital dialogue. I’m grateful to say the least.







    I like that this episode stretched me a little. I had to find a way to make it worthy of an episode, and I think I pulled it off. I hope you enjoy learning more about Derek. One day, I hope to have him on for a lengthier conversation. Until then, I’m truly honored to have at least got a personal touch for the Jason Wright Show.







    Here’s one of my favorite Derek TED Talks on goals. I’ve adopted this discipline. I actually learned if from Steven Kotler, but Derek drove home the point for me.



















    More About Derek:







    I always write for my audience, not for myself, so this feels indulgent. When I think of expressing this kind of “about me” stuff in an article, I stop myself because it’s not directly useful to you.







    So this is just one big page where I can write all about myself, without feeling the need for it to be useful. And some day this site will be all that’s left of me, so I might as well write my own mini autobiography.

    June 14, 2022 The 'Pilot' of The Jason and Josh or Josh and Jason Show? The next big thing from Texas Titan Media

    Josh Tomlin has spent over a decade in the Major Leagues. He’s a fellow East Texan, father and dude obsessed with being the absolute best he can be. I love Josh. I’m so honored to call him friend.







    Well, now I get to call him co-host of Texas Titan Media’s latest show. Although we have no idea what we’re going to call the show yet, we are thrilled nonetheless. Hey this is podcasting not network T.V. If we want to go out half baked so be it!







    Here’s a little about Josh







    Tomlin was coached by his father until he began playing high school baseball.[1] Tomlin attended Whitehouse High School,[2] Angelina College, and Texas Tech University.[3] He was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 11th round of the 2005 Major League Baseball draft, but did not sign.[4][5]







    Cleveland Indians[edit]























    Tomlin with the Cleveland Indians







    Tomlin was drafted again by the Cleveland Indians in the 19th round of the 2006 Major League Baseball draft, and did sign. Since 2006, he has played with various minor league baseball teams including the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, Lake County Captains, Kinston Indians, Buffalo Bisons, and Columbus Clippers.







    At Columbus, Tomlin went 8–4 with a 2.68 ERA in 20 appearances, including 17 starts. He has an overall minor-league record of 51–24 with a 3.20 ERA.







    Tomlin was promoted to the Indians to make his major league debut against the New York Yankees on July 27, 2010,[6] where he outpitched the Yankees’ CC Sabathia, earning a 4–1 win. In 12 starts for the Indians, Tomlin went 6-4 with a 4.56 ERA in 73 innings. In 2011, Tomlin pitched most of the season in the Indians rotation, finishing with a record of 12-7 in 26 starts.







    On May 7, 2012, Tomlin pitched a no-decision with a career-high e...

Great show

Humor mixed with wisdom and real life impact.

Foregiveness?

You should be more careful when having guests come on and tell the world about how someone else feels. Alesha Penland has no idea about how Tisha and her family have suffered through this travesty. They are sad for her loss but it was not caused by Tisha. Tisha and her family suffer every day she spends in jail unable to raise or even see her children.
