Survive the Hard Things with Habits

Leadership is hard. Perhaps inherently so. When the mission is to empower others to cause change, there's bound to be lots of challenges. CNN says being CEO should come with a health warning. One legendary CEO even called it "the torture." I think there's another metaphor that's more helpful. In an episode of Stan Lee's Superhumans, Tom Owen survives being run over by a heavy truck. Through testing, the conclusion isn't that his abdominal muscles are significantly stronger than average. Instead, he's able to generate enough inter-abdominal pressure to withstand massive external loads. "If I can't push out harder than the weight of the truck pushing down, then I die," says Tom. I think leaders can use the same approach. By generating enough internal force with our habits, we can push back against the external pressures that threaten to crush us.

Invisible Rust

Drift happens.

In his recent podcast, Michael Hyatt recounts a harrowing memory of being caught in a riptide while snorkeling and drifting significantly away from the shore. He recalls how he and his wife collapsed on the

Live Empty. Daily.

Annie Dillard succinctly said, "How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives." And I love how Todd Henry expands the question to frame it up perfectly, "Imagine for a moment

Excellence Is a Choice

Somewhere along the way, success became linked with comforts. Palatial houses, luxury cars, gourmet foods, the finest threads. All in the name of making us more happy or fulfilled. But they’re often simply modern-day salves,

On Living Your Truth with Kamal Ravikant

On today's podcast, I'm honored to interview Kamal Ravikant. He's the author of two awesome books - Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It and Live Your Truth. What's awesome about Kamal's writing is that he's vulnerable and authentic enough to share some really raw and profound truths that I think lots of us need to hear. "We don't stumble accidentally into an amazing life. It takes a conscious commitment to figuring out what we stand for - finding our truth. It begins by looking inside ourselves, because when it rises from within, we have no choice but to express it, to live it. That is when magic happens."

HCP 038: How To Strengthen Your Brain and Fight Stress

Should we strengthen our brains like we do our bodies? Absolutely. The problem is that we're rarely taught how. And what we hear about sometimes sounds weird or even embarrassing. But it's incredibly important. As Christopher Paolini says, "the monsters of the mind are far worse than those that actually exist. Fear, doubt, and hate have hamstrung more people than beasts ever have." In this episode of the Habit Chef Podcast, we'll explore four positive habits we can develop for strengthening our minds and fighting stress. Listen in, and you’ll learn what people who are mentally strong don't do, how to prevent yourself from doing them, why daily exercise is the next blockbuster drug, how to program yourself to think differently, how to quiet your mind, and what you should do for 20 minutes each day.
