This episode is part two of a three-part series from the live teaching of the course called CLEAR the Issue. What if Life itself was talking to you through your biggest challenges? Would you relate to your problems the same way? Would you still be frustrated, exhausted, and cranky?
This episode starts a three-part series pulled from the live version of the course called CLEAR the Issue. We talk today about an aspect of problem-solving seldom talked about: how you relate to problems on a spiritual level. What stops many people from solving their problems is not a lack of skill or knowledge, but rather an unwillingness to give themselves over to the process. What does that mean and how on earth do you use it to solve problems?
This episode is the final one of a three part series on the subject of work ethic and the dubious and elusive concept called “doing your best.” What is the antidote for mediocrity? There’s plenty of it in our world isn’t there? Would you like to know the counter-intuitive, simple solution?
This episode is part two of a three-part series discussing the idea of doing the best you can when working to achieve your goals. Specifically, we talk about having a solid work ethic and what to do when you have a job that you hate or may not see yourself doing forever.
Where is your work ethic and does it matter? The true test of a human being is how they relate to being inconvenienced when the work is something they don’t necessarily want to do. Believe it or not, how you relate to your work ethic and the job you are in now has an effect on performing at your dream job later.
This episode is the first of a three-part series discussing the idea of doing the best you can when working to achieve your goals. Specifically, we talk about the dynamics of growth and how taking an occasional look back at your former self is key to change.
What does your work ethic look like? Do you realize that you can always do more than what you’re doing now? The true attitude of excellence is to understand that—despite claiming you’re doing the best you can in the moment—you’re always trying to do better and can look back at the former version of your behavior in healthy embarrassment over what you once were.
We’ve already covered non-apologies and the emotional role of shame in the process. Now, we discuss the anatomy of apologies—specifically, the dynamics of a good apology.
This doesn’t include just apologies to others. We also discuss a personal lack of ownership for our own effort and the importance of taking responsibility for our actions when holding ourselves accountable.
The episode is the final one of a three-part series.
As we already know, people are terrible at apologies. Why? Remorse is a strong emotion. The key to a heartfelt apology is to work past the discomfort and remorsefully admit guilt while accepting the consequences. How do you get there? That’s where the CLEAR process becomes important. This is the second episode in a three-part series on how to apologize.
We don’t learn about the art of apologizing as children in school. In fact, the process still evades most grown adults—maybe even including your employees, business associates, or significant other, too. Here, we discuss specific examples of non-apologies in the media and across the political spectrum. This is the first episode in a three-part series.
This is the final episode in a two-part series on the power of organization and the epidemic of chronic overwhelm. We cover how getting organized might truly be the game changer you’re looking for; it doesn’t matter if you want to be more creative, intelligent, or attentive. Organization works to clear the space and make you more open to other things in your life.
This episode starts a two-part series on the power of organization and the epidemic of chronic overwhelm. We also discuss the being and doing aspects of being organized, it’s critical to work on both.
As you listen, remember that getting organized is a means to an end. There’s a ton of great reasons to clear off your desk or empty your inbox, but the most important one people rarely get. There’s far more to it than just moving stuff around.
