069 | Surf Uncertainty

Dave has had some unexpected success over the past 12 months. Massive success. The only problem is that with that success comes a lot of fear, uncertainty, and anxiety. What do you do with that? My attempt to answer that question, today on BG Radio. Listen time: 7:12

068 | Why Do We Wait So Long?

Ryan's been working for other people for the last 15 years. He's been wanting to start his own company for almost as long. He finally started. Two months into the change, he can't imagine why he didn't do it sooner. So, listener, what do you think? Listen time: 4:07

Duration: 00:04:07

067 | What Are You Up To?

People who are "up to something" are my favorite people. It doesn't even matter WHAT they are up to. Just so long as they have that special look in their eye. So what are YOU up to? Or better yet, what do you WANT to be up to? Listen time: 3:49

066 | It's Time to Play in Traffic

Play in traffic. If you don't how are you ever going to get hit? If people don't know about your work, it's hard to get recognition for it. Whatever you do, do it in public. No more hiding - show your work. Today on BG Radio: Conditions for Success, 3 of 3. Listen time: 2:21

Duration: 00:02:22

065 | Conditions For Success: Do Your Thing

My #1 condition for success? Do your thing. Not do your work, or do your art. Do your THING. Whatever your thing is. Because no matter how crazy your thing is, the internet makes it possible. Today on BG Radio, the Conditions for Success Series continues. Episode 2 of 3 - Do Your Thing. Listen time: 2:56

Duration: 00:02:56

064 | What Conditions Do You Need for Success?

Talking about success is uncomfortable for me. But I'm going to do it anyway! The point is not to brag, it's just to share what I have learned. Luck is part of it - but it's not the whole enchilada. Today, establishing the conditions for success. Part 1 of 3. Listen time: 4:00

063 | My Date with Deliberate Practice

Deliberate practice. Think of it as another way to say meditation. Just don't call it a podcast. (Ok, it's a podcast). But the podcast is really just a byproduct of metacognition! Listen time: 3:21

060 | Been Cheated Lately? Have You Tried Letting Go?

Today, on BG Radio, a story about Bob. Bob got taken advantage of. For a lot of money. Like, a TON of money. Money Bob couldn't afford to lose. But he did lose it. And now, he has to figure out what to do. What he decides may surprise you. Listen time: 7:17

Duration: 00:07:17

058 | The Power Of Listening

Being a good listener is more valuable than we might think. Forget valuable, it's a freaking ninja trick. The smartest people you'll ever meet are the people who know how to listen. Today on BG Radio, the three magic words to unlocking the ninja secret: "tell me more." Listen time: 5:25

Duration: 00:05:25

056 | Need for Closure

And yet, as human beings, we have this incredibly strong need for closure. What if instead we developed a tolerance (and maybe even an enjoyment!) for uncertainty? My guess: it would make the big scary things we all want to do a lot less scary. So much so that, maybe, we'd actually end up doing them. Listen time: 5:43

Duration: 00:05:43

055 | False Starts Come with the Job

Back track. Flip flop. False start. Misstep. I feel like these words and ideas have negative cultural connotations—like there's something wrong with starting things and then changing your mind about them. But what exactly is wrong with that? If you're like me, it might even be part of your job. Listen time: 7:24

Duration: 00:07:24

054 | The Craft of Curiosity

Curiosity. Deadly to cats, incredibly powerful to humans... it's not just something you're born with. Curiosity is a craft. Developing that craft is worth the time and energy. Listen time: 4:11

Duration: 00:04:12

053 | Below the Waterline

When you see successful people (especially people who do scary things) all you see is the tip of the iceberg. But there's a massive, hidden foundation below the water line that allows that tip to stand out. It just so happens that that foundation amounts to mostly air. But not just any kind of air: the air in your shocks. I promise, I'll explain. Listen time: 8:22

047 | The Idea Journey

You have an idea. It feels like a really good one. What happens next? Believe it or not, all ideas - whether good or bad - go through an epic journey. A true idea Odyssey. And in the end, only the elegant survive. Listen time: 7:07

Duration: 00:07:08

046 | Commitment to Craft

A master in any field makes the incredibly difficult look easy. Practice makes perfect. So what if we applied that same logic to things we don't ever think about as crafts. Public speaking, writing emails, balancing your checkbook. They may not feel very inspired, but if we commit to the craft, who knows what they can become. Listen time: 5:54

Duration: 00:05:54

045 | Easier to Hide

I have a new name for Twitter: I call it Hiding Place #23561. I have a lot of other Hiding Places, too, where I like to go whenever something needs to get done. But is it that I LIKE to spend time there, or is it simply that it's EASIER than doing the work? What if we flipped the tables so that it became harder? Listen time: 4:49

Duration: 00:04:49

043 | Fear is a Liar

Ben is a "Newly-minted 67 year old." After nearly three quarters of a century on this planet, not a single fear of Ben's has ever come true. Which makes me wonder... do they ever? Listen time: 4:04
