When winter comes, do you fight it or accept it? So many people find comfort in momentum, meaning that once one project is done, another takes its place. High energy and output has its place, but just like the seasons, they ebb and flow. So, when things need to slow down, how will you react? In this new episode, Dave and Chris share examples in their own lives about slowing down and taking time to just “be”. Dave talks about how he redefined the word “self-respect”, why you need Karine Ruel’s advice on how to disconnect from the noise every now and then, and this HUGE reason that Dave strives to have LESS control in his life.

In This Episode:

  • Even if you crave to be busy all the time, hearing Dave’s story will show you WHY you need to redefine “self-respect” in a whole new way.
  • Want to know how to “respect the seasons of life”? Take Karine Ruel’s advice and do THIS every so often to disconnect, regroup, and be aligned with EVERY part of yourself.
  • The BIG reason Dave strives to have LESS control in his life and, instead of rationalizing everything with his brain, relies on THIS organ instead to guide him without always trying to know why.
  • If your natural tendency is to always be in “Go!” mode, then you need to remember THIS core lesson about creativity and down time.

In light of the recent U.S. Capitol riots, people around the world have shared their interpretation of WHY the events happened. Whatever your politics may be, this episode is NOT about which policies are “correct” or blaming one side of the political aisle. Instead, we want to ask this simple but powerful question: Do you lead yourself, or does another person/idea lead you from the shadows? In this new episode, Dave and Chris dive deep into the issues of leadership, charisma, and much more. They cover what the riot revealed about PEOPLE (and not just politics), the HUGE lessons that we can learn from Trump REGARDLESS of his policies, and the TRUTH behind self-leadership and making ACTUAL progress as people and a country.

In This Episode:

  • The storming of the U.S. Capitol was an act of violence and deplorable in and of itself, but it reveals even more about THIS quality of people than just the country’s state of politics.
  • Why does it seem like different sides of the political aisle just can’t seem to understand the other side? Ultimately, it comes down to people neglecting this ONE quality in their life that would enable them to silence the noise and think for themselves, which would help people see more similarities than differences.
  • Even if you despise Trump as a person and policymaker, writing him off as a “crazy person” is too simplistic. Instead, by listening closely and absorbing THESE crucial lessons from him, we can use those forces for good and help more people think freely.
  • When the world feels like it’s burning to the ground and is in DESPERATE need of new leadership, what’s the solution? The go-to answer is often “help others”, but before you settle with that, you NEED to hear Dave explain WHY that answer misses a HUGE part of self-leadership, which usually ends up helping more people in the long run.

When your mind is overflowing with more ideas than you know what to do with, how do you sort through the noise to find the gems? Creativity is a free-flowing process that shouldn’t be restricted, but if you want to actually take action on those ideas, you need to establish a structure to transform thinking into doing. In this new episode, Dave and Chris discuss how implementing a daily structure empowered them to embrace their active minds AND be able to take action consistently. They cover practices that you can do at home RIGHT NOW to determine your long-term game plan, what EVERYONE needs in their life to determine if an idea they’re passionate about is actually good, and THREE questions that will help you see through the trap of perfectionism and LOVE action, no matter how imperfect.

In This Episode:

  • If you’re someone whose brain is almost constantly drumming up ideas, what do you do? First off, you’ll want to implement THESE simple at-home practices that will ENCOURAGE your creativity, not shun it. Then, you need to ask yourself THIS question to determine your longer-term strategy.
  • In the beginning of Chris’s career, he was often left feeling burnt out and not much to show for it. If you’ve experienced this too, then you NEED listen to Chris and Dave explain WHY this approach failed AND what they do now to only let the truly remarkable ideas float to the surface.
  • Let’s say that you have this awesome idea that you’re jazzed about. Does that mean it’s automatically a good one? Your passion for your idea is powerful, but if you want to be SURE that your idea will succeed, a little of THIS for every new idea will help others feel that passion, too.
  • Now that you’ve nailed down a genuinely good idea, what happens when perfectionism rears its ugly head? To avoid the internal doubts and actually take ACTION, ask yourself these THREE simple questions that will eliminate the unknowns, hone in your focus, and give you the confidence necessary to push forward.

If you’re someone who wants to ditch the 9 to 5 and create your OWN career, the journey is more than “work 18 hours until something happens”.
