Show Notes

I’ve been having so many intense, vivid dreams lately - so intense that I feel tired and unsettled even after waking up. I knew these dreams were trying to tell me something about myself that I couldn’t see with open eyes during the day, but I didn’t feel like analyzing them or dealing with them in the moment. But one of the dreams that I couldn’t shake is a very common dream that many people experience, but one that is pretty unusual for me - dreaming that my teeth are falling out. In this episode I do some live dreamwork to decode and dissect the underlying message this dream was trying to reveal to me.

012: How to Practice Gratitude

What are you grateful for today? It’s one of the most important questions I ask myself every day. I once said that appreciation is the currency we pay the universe with—and I still think that’s true. So at the end of each day, I ask myself: Have I paid what I owe? Have I settled that bill with the universe? In today’s episode, I talk about gratitude, how I practice it in my own life, I share what I’ve learned from asking my two sons what they’re grateful for every night when I put them to bed, and I leave with you two “gratitude exercises” that’ll help elevate yourself today. ...

051: Do your work in public

In this episode, I talk about our podcast, and why it's so different from the content we've created in the past. Most of these episodes are unstructured conversations and explorations of random themes of my life—there are no actionable takeaways, no bitesized nuggets of wisdom, and oftentimes no answers to the questions we pose. And at the same time—it's the most honest content we've ever created, the stories are more real, and while it often doesn't lead to a clean, neat work product, we're on our path to building a beautiful body of work, and it's a labor of love.

067: How to Change Yourself: Slow Adjustments vs Instant Transformation

I've been reading a book about personal change and anger, and one paragraph early on in the book stood out to me: [If we want to change ourselves, we should do it] very slowly, no matter how crazy or self-defeating our current behavior appears to be. It exists for a reason and may serve a positive and protective function for ourselves and others. If we want to change, it is important to do so slowly so that we have the opportunity to observe and test out the impact of one small, but significant change on a relationship system. If we get ambitious, and try to change too much, too fast, we may not change at all. Instead, we may stir up so much anxiety and emotional intensity within ourselves and others as to eventually reinstate old patterns and behaviors, or we may end up hastily cutting off from an important relationship, which is not necessarily a good solution. - The Dance of Anger by Harriet Lerner In this episode, I talk about the benefits of slow change, and why radical transformations are often more sizzle than steak.
