The Secret to Making Resolutions You Can Actually Keep

  Happy Holidays! Today’s podcast is a twist on the usual – no guest, just some important ideas from yours truly that may help…IF you want to make changes in your life. First, there’s a crazy stat — something like 80% of people fail to achieve their New Years resolutions – and most give up within the first 2 weeks of the year. Yet here we (all) are, back to reflecting on how the past year has gone and what we’d like to do different in the coming new year.  A virtuous endeavor for sure, but something’s missing… Honestly,  I’m not throwing stones here, as I LOVE this time of year. Pausing & reflecting is required to assess your current state, and to set new goals – to create any change and create your life! Among other things, if we never pause to look up from the grind for a moment, it’s easy to miss the signals that we might need to course correct. SO, it’s no secret that I’m a big fan of setting goals… But today, in parallel to any goals you might be lining up for  2019 (I encourage you to set a few!), I’d like you to […]

It Doesn’t Have to be Crazy at Work with Jason Fried

With so much information, and gadgets and access and hustle and email and …and.. aren’t you overloaded at work!? It’s understandable and it’s a real problem. If this describes you or someone you love…you’ll LOVE this episode of the show. Enter: Jason Fried.  He’s the brilliant NYT best-selling author and co-founder of the software firm, Basecamp.  Since long before meeting Jason in person he’s always caught my eye as perhaps THE outspoken thinker / critic of the current status of work, our unhealthy habits around our jobs, and our addictions to busy-making. Whether it’s the toxic hustle, the grow-at-all-cost mentality, or the idea of working your fingers to the bone…Jason helps us all see why 99% of this approach is rubbish. And within 3 minutes of meeting him / listening to this episode, I’m banking you’ll be in agreement with him. The one refreshing difference with Jason?  He also gives us a roadmap to fix what we’ve broken. In this episode we talk about is latest book (co-authored with previous cjLIVE podcast guest David Heinemeier Hansson!) called It Doesn’t Have to be Crazy at Work, which lays out a play-by-play on how to avoid all exhaustion, stress, and burnout and how to […]

Happiness Through Gratitude with AJ Jacobs

AJ Jacobs is a multiple NYT bestselling author, a journalist, a lecturer as well as a warm and hilarious human soul.  He’s on this weeks podcast and is…SO GOOD. In this show we learn why AJ intentionally puts himself in the most extraordinary circumstances … like when he strove to be “the world’s healthiest man” going from Dad bod to ultimate health (Book = Drop Dead Healthy). Or when he lived according to the bible for a year, beard, goats and all… (Book = The Year of Living Biblically). In this episode we have a blast, learn and laugh a lot, and discuss AJ’s new book Thanks a Thousand, which chronicles his journey of gratitude in the same lovable – but brilliantly insightful – way. AJ has more tools in his toolbelt for being happy, healthy and productive than nearly anyone I’ve met. And because he’s experimented so deeply with each of these tools, he knows just when to put them to good use. He’s the rare blend of incredibly relatable and wildly successful at the same time. If you know his work already this will be a huge boost to your week. If you are new to his work, be prepared to thank […]

You Are Your Habits with Julien Smith

Julien Smith is a long-time friend and familiar face on the podcast. I first brought him on in 2013 to talk about why not caring about what others think is a useful skill to have as a creator in any field (translation: he penned a LEGENDARY blog post called ‘the subtle art of not giving a f*$k’ – which went crazy viral and later inspired a best selling book by Mark Manson…). And now Julien is BAAACK…this time talking about both his best selling books (The Flinch, and Trust Agents) and…drumroll please… his latest startup venture called Breather – an amazing service the provides on-demand meeting and studio space all across North America, which has raised more than $100M to date. When I need recording studios for the podcast on short notice in LA or NYC? I use Breather.  A quick headshot where you don’t want to rent a photo studio for $3000. Yep, Breather again. $150 bucks. You get the picture. But more than anything, this episode is simply rich with a dose of reality that all of us creators and entrepreneurs need to hear: namely that we’re all in this together. That we all have imposter syndrome. That we all simultaneously […]

An audience of ONE is all it takes

QUESTION:  What if you only made work that YOU loved, and you were certain that you would be paid top dollar if you did…Would you do it?  Of course! Most sane creators / entrepreneurs would jump at the opportunity – and such is the topic of Srinivas Rao’s new book: An Audience of One: Reclaiming Creativity For Its Own Sake.  The problem is, so many of us are watering down our work making it for someone else. In fact, the path to our best work is digging deeper into who you’re creating for and what happens when you create art for yourself. In this episode we also cover… “If you’re going to take the time to learn to use a tool, take the time to make something with that tool…”  This is a fascinating POV I’d never heard before, but it keeps us creators in the building mode vs the procrastinating mode. How to take your art+career+future into your own hands…  Srini’s view is that we must put our focus and effort into the things that you can control. You can’t control follower count, you can’t control Facebook’s algorithms. You can control your creative process. If you focus on the process, you’ll […]

Gretchen Rubin: Think about milestones, not finish lines

Gretchen Rubin is the author of several blockbuster NYT bestsellers (Better Than Before, The Happiness Project and Happier At Home) which have sold millions of copies worldwide. If you notice a common theme of “happiness,” that’s because Gretchen is one of the world’s foremost “happiness experts.” I love this term because it says something very important yet rarely said, which is that happiness is largely a choice – that it’s not random but the product of a series of deliberate decisions that happen within a proven framework and lead to a happier life. Today on the podcast, Gretchen talks about her concept of “drift.” Drift is what happens when we take the path of least resistance, which avoids friction in the short term but often leads to unhappiness in the long term She also gets into several of her “personality frameworks” like obliger, upholder, rebel, questioner. You’ll likely recognize yourself in some of these and learn from what she says about each of them We talk about accountability, which is a super, super powerful (and often underutilized) tool for getting results out of yourself. Gretchen says something really insightful on this: “A lot of people who are frustrated with themselves just need […]
