Evergrowth Podcast Episode 41 - Quitting

We all quit, but quitting doesn't always look the way we think it will. In this episode, we look at some of the ways people quit (including ourselves), and how to counteract those.

My Trusty 3-Step Guide to Getting Scary Things Done

All who know me know how I feel about "X-step Plans to Accomplishing/Banishing Y Forever!" (hint: I don't like them, because they are largely bullshit). And remember, it's always important to read all the instructions before you start...

But this is solid gold, if I do say myself. I sent it to a client this morning, and I'm pretty proud of it:


STEP 1: Okay, re: the [thing you want to do that seems scary/hard]. Turn on Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” (or whatever your jam is), turn it up loud, and proceed to do just that (Shake. It. Off.). Then do 50 jumping jacks, 20 pushups (or as many as you can muster). Possibly grab a pillow and do some primal screaming (into the pillow, so your neighbours don't call the police). 

STEP 2: Now the energy’s gone, it’s time to focus: try a guided meditation (this will work nicely: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92i5m3tV5XY).

STEP 3: Then, in the words of Nike, Just [Bloody] Do It. (I think that’s how it goes)


P.S. But seriously, what’s in the way? And what is prolonging doing it actually buying you? What are you afraid of? (think about/answer these questions before trying my trusty 3-step guide to getting scary things done.)

Evergrowth Podcast Episode 40 — Tidying Up

Today's podcast topic is tidying up.

Bay and I are going through our home and discarding, discarding, discarding. What we initially assumed would be a mechanical process involving a set of steps and garbage bags, has turned in to a profound experience, forcing us to become acquaintained with and acknowledge each of our fears, and to get a deeper understanding of our families of origin.

Tidying up is not a mechanical practice — it's a spiritual and energetic one, and one that you can bring to your home, your life, your career, your health, and anywhere else that you perceive clutter.

Tune in to learn more, and please, share with anyone you think would benefit.
