006 - "My Cup Runneth Over"

9/24/2017
More
This week's episode is pretty straightforward and to the point. I am about to enter my busiest season of professional work thus far this school year, and I have a few points of perspective to help handle the potential overwhelm and some rituals and lifelines that get me through each day.

005 - Going Rogue

9/18/2017
More
Well, what can I say? It seems like a summer can't go by without a significant podcast hiatus. I had a lot of real life happen since my last episode, and it's given me enough distance and perspective to make this the show you deserve. If you take the 10 minutes to listen, I think you'll appreciate what I have to say today.

004 - "A Profile in Grit"

6/18/2017

In today's episode, "A Profile in Grit," I want to tell you about someone who has taught me more about grit than anyone I’ve ever known. I hope you enjoy this week's episode, which was recorded only on my digital recorder - I apologize for the occasional pop or bump - I've tried to edit them out as best I can! Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. You all have my admiration and respect! --- On the web: www.grittymusician.com Facebook:...

Check out the show here: https://www.aaronmchugh.com/protect-the-asset-episode-123/ Aaron is rapidly becoming one of my heroes.

002 - "One slip of paper away from happiness."

6/4/2017
More
I’m in a nostalgic mood today, friends. Today’s episode was recorded on the 20th anniversary of my high school graduation, and I have several thoughts knocking around in my head about the past 20 years. This episode is centered around three lists: the goal sheet that I completed around graduation; the reality of what these past 20 years looks like, and how my current life, though very different from my plan, is better than I could imagine. I wrap things up with the list I would like to...

"Cold Brew, a new start, and a story."

5/28/2017
More
"Cold brew, a new start, and a story." It seems like a pretty clear title for the first episode of Bruce's relaunched podcast, The Gritty Musician! Today's episode starts with super-concentrated coffee drinks, an explanation for the change in show branding, and a story to help college students trying to explain to mom and dad why their grades weren't as good this spring as they were back in the fall! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the reboot. We're glad you're...

Episode #38 - "Saying Goodbye, Saying Hello."

5/19/2017
More
Sometimes in life, it is important to stop and take stock of what really matters. Right now, my wife really matters. My family, career, and faith matter. This podcast matters, but right now, I need to take some time to figure out how to deliver great content worthy of your time and attention. I only ask one thing of you - please stay subscribed - it takes very little space on your device, and when I DO come back with new content, you'll be the first to hear it! Thank you for all of...

Episode 36 - "Take a Break!"

4/11/2017
More
Hey everybody! Today’s episode is a short one, but I think the message is still solid. When was the last time you took a break? Working hard is super important, but when you start to see diminishing returns, it’s important to take a break, if only for a few minutes. We’ll be back next week with a much longer episode, I promise! ___ Get Some Grit! is available in on iTunes, Google Play Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIN, iHeartRadio, and at www.getsomegrit.com.

Episode 35 - "The Pen is (sometimes) Mightier Than the Phone!"

4/2/2017
More
I love technology! I am surrounded by iDevices and can't imagine my life without their benefit - but sometimes, it's nice to have alternatives. This week, I take a few minutes to talk about the benefit of keeping an actual paper notebook and pen in addition to my technology - and five reasons why I believe it can be of benefit to you, too. 1. It makes me slow down! 2. Hundreds of color options. 3. It can be more convenient when used in conjunction with tech. 4. People appreciate and...

Episode 34 - "Becoming a Bookworm...Again!"

3/26/2017
More
This episode's topic outlines my return to reading after years of not being much of a reader, how reading has really helped me with some struggles that I thought I might never overcome, and how I believe reading is the best thing you can do right now to "break the logjam" in the creative part of your mind. My list of ten books that have really made a difference include: "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield "Fully Alive: Lighten Up and Live by Ken Davis "Psycho-Cybernetics" by Dr....

Episode 33 - "Margin"

2/13/2017
More
This week’s topic is near and dear to me, and I hope that if this episode speaks to you, that you’ll keep this in mind as you go through the week. You probably know the word margin as a part of your word processing software. If you look on a page in a book, the margins are the blank spaces around the text. The narrower the margin, the more words you can fit on the page. Margins exist in many facets of life: financial, emotional, etc. The more margin you have, the better! It’s easy to...

Episode 32: "Be What You Don't See In The World."

2/8/2017
More
Folks, there is A LOT of anxiety in the world right now. Whether it is justified or not justified is up to your politics and personal opinions, but I think we can agree that 2017 is starting to feel more like an extension of 2016 than a separate, bright and shiny new year. In this episode (the first episode of 2017, I know, I know...) I take a few minutes to talk about the sadness, frustration and general anxiety I feel from so many people around me these days, and an idea for how to...

Episode 25 - "Milestones"

11/13/2016
More
After more than a year, we’ve finally reached the milestone of 25 episodes. Rather than celebrate, of course, I dig into why things happened this way, and what I can do to learn from my experience. :) I spend lots of time analyzing my behaviors, and trying to find patterns, to break the bad ones and nurture the good ones. This spawns a talk on the role of “should be” in our lives and how it paralyses us from massive action. Thanks for listening and sticking with me through...
