Encore: Code

Growing up in the 60s, everyone had a code of conduct they followed. And for most folks, honor was on that list. 

Somewhere between the 1960s and today, we’ve lost our code of conduct. And the world is an inferior place because of it. But just because everyone else threw out their code of conduct doesn’t mean you have to. 

In fact, having a code makes you more likely to succeed. It makes your days less chaotic. And it makes your relationships more rewarding. 

In this episode, you’ll discover how a code of conduct improves almost every aspect of your life. 

Listen now. 

Show Highlights Include:

  • How living by a code of conduct increases your chances of sustained success ([0:26]

Encore: Momentum

Momentum can move you forward almost effortlessly – or keep you stuck wherever you are. 

When your positive habits gather momentum, success is on autopilot. But when laziness, complacency and negativity gather momentum, it chains you to the status quo. 

Positive momentum is hard to get started. But it fast-tracks your results and lets you exceed your goals (without working yourself to the bone).

In this episode, you’ll discover how to build and keep momentum so that you can build a great life and share it with others. 

Ready to put your success on autopilot? Listen now!

  • Why friction keeps you from gaining momentum and sabotages your relationships and your career. ([7:23])

Encore: Silence

We all like music, TV and conversations, but you might be surprised by the damage noise can do (even when you’re having fun).

Clogging your brain with loud sounds, alerts, and pings leads to a poor sleep schedule and sabotages your ability to focus. And you can’t lead if you can’t think.

While quiet time can feel like you’re missing out on something, it gives your brain time to reflect and rest (which is impossible to get in a busy, chaotic world). 

In this episode, you’ll discover how to stop the buzz and use silence as a tool for a more peaceful and powerful life. 

Show Highlights Include:

  • How to stop treating silence like a ‘timeout’ and embrace it to boost your intuition and awareness. ([0:52])
  • Why spending time in silence turns you into a true leader (and the three leadership skills silence teaches you). ([5:06])
  • How to stop ‘noise pollution’ from stressing out your body, raising your blood pressure, and damaging your hearing. ([6:33])
  • How to create the most concentrated and productive learning space with an ‘Albert Einstein’ level of noise. ([11:52])
  • Why ten minutes of quiet time is essential to your mental health (and how the military, workforce and schools use silence to boost performance). ([14:38])

Encore: Positive

It’s easy to respond with negativity in a negative world. But what if one bad thought led to a day of bad decisions? Would you think differently?

Encore: Gusto

If you’ve never heard of the word ‘gusto,’ it means doing something with zest or a spark. That’s the way most of us want to live our lives. 

But most people don’t live with gusto. They’re stuck in their comfort zones, which prevent them from taking on the challenges they need to grow.

Having gusto is about pushing out of comfort zones to live life to the max. If you can’t step out of your comfort zone, then you can’t grow into something greater.  

In this episode, you’ll discover how to find enjoyment in your days and give life meaning with a little gusto.

Show Highlights Include:

  • How to use a 1960s beer commercial to uplift your spirit and define life on your terms with the. ([0:35])

  • Why stepping out of your comfort zone makes you enjoy life more. ([7:16])
