In this episode, Danny shares a moment towards the end of a powerful meeting with his tribe about making better choices in life. God gave us the power to choose to create whatever we want to make. We can either live from lack, doubt, fear and worry or bring it in from love and abundance. We can choose to focus all our energy and effort on something else, which helps us step up and live the life of our dreams. Danny explains that if our actions don't meet our desires, that will never happen.

Hey Love, if you know the struggle of being so good on your diet during the day (give yourself a pat on the back), only to be derailed by your pantry for a nighttime eating sesh, then Amber has some words you need to hear today in this episode. Girl, don't white-knuckle it– give yourself some damn grace. We've all been there, but with the tips that Amber gives us today, let's be fierce and face that nighttime with confidence! First, if you notice that your nighttime eating is getting the best of you, Amber encourages you to detach yourself from that moment and to be clinical and ask yourself– What's really going on? Why am I doing this? Once we identify the cause, nighttime eating is an issue that can be remedied. This spills over into the next tip. Once you know why, then you can identify what triggered it. Self-awareness is key for this to be effective. Then, Mama, cue “Closing Time” by Semisonic because this kitchen is *closed.* Get yourself into a routine with structured times for eating and sleeping. To be able to get better sleep, studies show we should shut that kitchen down 3-4 hours before our head hits that pillow. When we have that structure we can make sure we're getting enough food throughout the day to where we don't even think about nighttime eating because we'll be busy sleeping. This step really kicks our circadian rhythm into gear and resets our bodies to lessen cravings and hunger. The next steps overlap each other. Girl, get satisfied– at every meal. Healthy eating doesn't have to equate to boring eating. Eat the foods that you like and appreciate your meal. We want our bodies to say, “Damn, that was good!” Achieving that level of satisfaction is easier when we do the next tip and include protein and good fats in our meals. By including these nutrients in our meals, we are not only more satisfied, but nighttime eating will become a thing of the past. But overall, listen to your body. As Amber says, we should not deny our bodies in the name of a diet. After all, wellness and health is a journey about being consistent over perfect. You in, Mama? Tune in for more! Wellness Quote “When it comes to nighttime eating, more times than not, there is a reason behind it… that reason has nothing to do with the kind of person that you are.” –Amber Shaw Key Highlights We have to release that guilt and shame over not meeting the unrealistic standards that restrictive dieting has placed on us, we have to give ourselves grace; Get more clinical and understand the why behind your nighttime eating sessions– ask yourself why are you doing this and identify the cause; Once you understand the cause, find the trigger. Was it emotional? Maybe you had a stressful day at work, maybe it was your *gulp* children. Bath time. Bedtime. Getting them to eat vegetables. Yikes; Getting into a routine is very helpful. Be intentional and plan to have enough food throughout your day, close your kitchen at a specific time, and then be consistent with your bedtime; Get enough protein and good fats at every meal to boost your satisfaction with every meal. When we look forward to eating during the day and for dinner, nighttime eating isn't something to worry about; Give yourself some damn grace… have we mentioned that already?

Today I am very excited to introduce you to Agnis Stibe, a 4x TEDx speaker, MIT alum, YouTube creator, globally recognized corporate consultant, and scientific advisor. He is the Artificial Intelligence Program Director and Professor of Transformation at EM Normandie Business School, and the creator of the STIBE Method, which we will of course talk about in today's episode. He is also the Adjunct Professor of Human-City Interaction at the University of Oulu, Paris Lead of Silicon Valley founded Transformative Technology community. While at the renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he established research on persuasive cities for sustainable wellbeing. We talk about his research, how social proof can change behavior when it is made more visible, the importance of testing, why you need to try different approaches for any concept, and so much more. Listen in! Show Notes: [00:43] Today I am very excited to introduce you to Dr. Agnis Stibe, a 4x TEDx speaker, MIT alum, YouTube creator, globally recognized corporate consultant, and scientific advisor. [03:19] Agnis shares about himself, his background, and the really fascinating work he does. He is passionate about helping people, teams, organizations, and societies to get where they want to get. [04:17] It is our counterproductive psychology that is oftentimes our roadblock to our own success and happiness. [07:22] Awareness is number one. Once awareness is there, then there has to be a degree of willingness. [09:33] Not everything is worth coming up the “Slope of Enlightenment.” [10:23] We have access to the same curiosity throughout our lives. The question is do we allow ourselves to be using it? [12:31] He encourages people to take away unnecessary bias before they start a conversation about AI. [14:13] Together we are on a journey and the only obstacles are our human biases. [15:32] Agnis shares some success stories. [17:15] After five meetings using their transparent system, everyone was on time. [18:18] Melina's second book What Your Employees Need and Can't Tell You comes out in October 2022. [20:11] Many people don't want to see themselves in comparison with others on the same screen, but that is their resistance speaking. [22:02] Technology takes away the bias. It is a more reliable perspective that it makes existing patterns more transparent and visible. [23:51] Agnis shares about The Littery and his role with it. [26:32] They amplified the effects of that solution by adding a social layer. Technology also played a role in making things more transparent. [28:28] Humans over our evolution have gained a lot and we have lost some essential awareness of who we are. [30:42] Thanks to technology we get a deeper and clearer perspective of who we are. [33:19] Technology has huge impacts. There is bias towards technology. [34:34] Agnis' hypothesis: technology is perceived by an average human being the same way an average human being perceives another human being. [36:28] Everything we experience with technology is giving us an opportunity to look at ourselves - the more technology the closer and deeper we see ourselves. [38:24] The STIBE Method has ten tools split among three major stages. [39:55] Most of the time the problem with failed solutions is that there is not enough awareness of the problem. [41:33] The final and crucial phase is to make assurance for long-term success. [45:33] Melina shares her closing thoughts. [45:45] The impact of social proof can change when it is made more visible and there is a record.

Check it out below: [00:00:00] Wesley Yates: One thing I will say and whatever advice you're taking it from vet out who is giving it, right? So if someone's telling you it's okay to overpay, meaning you know what if it's a good deal and you believe in it, then it's okay to get more aggressive on your price. [00:00:28] Sam Wilson: Wesley co-founded VFR Capital Investments, a syndication company that is owned by a team of veterans and first responders. He served as the CEO and he's led his team and growing their portfolio from zero to 862 units in just a little over 15 months, estimated about $70 million in assets under management, Wesley, welcome to the show. [00:00:47] Wesley Yates: Thanks, Sam. I appreciate you having me on. [00:00:49] Sam Wilson: Hey, man pleasures mine three questions I ask every guest come to the show 90 seconds or less. Where did you start? Where are you now? How did you get there? [00:00:56] Wesley Yates: Where did I start? I started at the bottom. Where am I now? Closer to the top? How did I get there? A lot of hard work racking my brain and most importantly, having the right team by my side. Because it's not a matter of when you hit problem. It's not a matter if you have problem. It's a matter of when. So who you have with you fighting those is really going to determine on how successful you are. [00:01:20] Sam Wilson: Man, I love that. That's absolutely right. Tell me when did you decide to take the plunge from smaller deals into larger deals? [00:01:29] Wesley Yates: So yeah, like a lot of people I think, you know, they started with residential, really wholesale. And I was more like a plus one. My wife was the one that was really in real estate. I was on a contract to go to Amazon. So I'm like, Yeah, I'm just here, you know. So as I was networking, it was really that was the story. But I got a phone call on July 19 of 2019 said, Hey, do you want to do some syndication? I said, Do I need a license for that? They laughed. I was serious. But showed up the very next day and just started networking had about 250 cards in my pocket after the first event. First conversation went something like this, Hey, what do you guys do? They said, You know, we're investors, investors, investors, I'm LP and this many doors, all that what do you do? Oh, I'm gonna be raising capital for a group. That's, you know, syndicating multifamily. They asked me, you know, the typical questions, what's your cash on cash? What's your target IRR? What's your total returns holding times? I didn't know a single thing that they had said. So I reverted back to my old days of being a leader in the military. You never could say, I don't know, you could say I will get you the answers. So that's exactly what I said. You know, those are great questions, I'd really like to get you the right answers. So whenever we get closer to ironing out our numbers, I'd like to be able to get those to you. Do you have some way for I can reach out to you later on? Boom, boom, boom, five cards, went back to the group that invited me there. said, Yeah, I have no clue what cash on cash IRR. So back and forth, I went for a good hour and a half of that event. And still, by the end of it was having full-blown conversation. So cared more about the journey ahead and building momentum than how dumb I looked asking what people would call dumb questions. So that's where I started. And that was, you know, was that almost three years ago now? So [00:03:15] Sam Wilson: Oh, and so you started off raising capital for somebody else? Yes, sir. And is that what you do now? [00:03:23] Wesley Yates: No, I will like I am now in a more the CEO route, found out that I was better with my brain doing the operations overseeing the formulas, the processes, you know, I've got the whole six sigma training, the, you know, I was gonna go work at Amazon as one of their manufacturers was the operations managers. And so a lot of tracking performance, tracking efficiency, you know, driving that all forward. And so that's kind of what I did to our team and our processes is put a manufacturing engineer mindset to it. And we really started cranking out some deals. But it wasn't until I put, I guess, my own team together that I ever closed the deal our first year and a half of syndicating with other teams, I was not successful. [00:04:11] Sam Wilson: What do you mean by that? You were not successful? I mean, if you're putting deals together with other teams, did all the deals fall through today? [00:04:18] Wesley Yates: Just yeah. So in a nutshell, the, you know, as I was raising a capital A, you know, raising capital for that first role for that first team. You know, there were some things that I found out later on, once we really got into due diligence of our first deal, kind of notice that or some unethical things that have been done in the underwriting some unrealistic things that had been changed in the underwriting to just make numbers work. And, you know, I kind of rapidly dove into everything to where I could, you know, read the underwriting, or at least started catching on to those things. So yeah, I had to say, hey, look, I can't move forward with this deal in my better judgment, and told my investors in good faith I cannot advise you to invest in This deal, some of them kind of said, Okay, most of them respected that. And one of them is actually now one of my partners on my company today. So one of the co-founders of our company, Robert Newbern was actually originally going to be a passive investor. So, you know, less than I kind of learned a lot. I mean, still is, you know, you can have many different definitions to that. But did I close a deal? No, I did not close a deal, until I started my own team with the right people. So up to that point, it was more of an I was learning, and it was a trial, and fail and learn and move forward. So [00:05:40] Sam Wilson: what gave you the confidence to keep moving forward or being as the new guy to the space you're learning from some other people, then you get involved and you put time, effort and energy, you're going to conferences, you're shaking hands, you're talking about deals, you're, you know, have an investor conversation, then you get halfway through it, you're like, oh, wait, I don't like any of this. And I don't want to work with these guys anymore. I mean, that's, that's, that's a lot of setback for somebody new to the industry. What gave me the confidence to say, you know, that I'm on to something, I just haven't figured out the right way to do it yet. [00:06:10] Wesley Yates: Well, I don't know. To be honest, sometimes I made the joke that I was just too dumb to quit. I guess it's that inner marine and us we hate failure. I mean, you gotta practically kill us before we'll stop trying. Right. And I think that's what it was, is I still saw every step of the way, I did learn, I did grow. So I was scaling up. Even without, you know, closing something, I went from just investor relations to, you know, operations of a hospitality company, to a co-manager of $100 million fund. So I was still scaling up and building up experience and building up skill sets, learning more rapidly growing. So I still believed in myself at the end of the day, but I'll be honest, a lot of it has to do with my wife. My wife really supported me through all of that at the end of the day, she she kind of let me know, you know, you can do this. You've got what it takes. My family didn't feel the same sentiment of that, you know, a lot of my family flat out, tell me you're you're an idiot. What are you doing? You walked away from a guaranteed paycheck with Amazon and all the bells and whistles? To do this? What do you what do you do? So sometimes you have to look in the mirror and just really go what do you want? You know, can you can't What can you live with? At the end of the day? What can you live with? Can you live with saying I failed chasing a dream? Or I was too scared to try. You know, which regret Do you want to have? And I felt like I would rather chase this thing down to the bitter end until I could catch it, beat it and make it mine. Before I wanted to say nah, I gave up. [00:07:48] Sam Wilson: I think that's a valuable lesson. And I'm butchering this, this quote, but it's something like failure weighs ounces, regret weighs tons. Something to that idea, [00:07:58] Wesley Yates: one of the things that I think I've read, I've read, you know, the little motivational quotes that and it's funny because I hate rah, rah. But some of those quotes still get me okay, they still get me I think the one that really helped me when I needed it, it said, Winston Churchill says success is going into a new endeavor with the same enthusiasm. You started the last, huh? And I was like, well, there you go. So, you know, a lot of people say, as long as you learn, you didn't fail. And I think that's one thing that, you know, throughout my time in the military, throughout my time as an entrepreneur, I realized that if you don't look back and reflect on the lessons learned the Hey, what did I do wrong? What did I do right? Then? How are you going to grow? You have to be willing to admit defeat, you have to be willing to meet to address. Where did you mess up? versus what's that? And, you know, that's something that I've always been able to do is look back on whether it was a successful takeover, it was a complete fail. Where could I have made that process better? What can I have done? What could I have had differently in place to make overall something move better in the future? [00:09:12] Sam Wilson: That's a great stance, and one that is often sorely lacking in today's society is just that personal responsibility piece. What's what is though, perhaps, some bad advice that you received during the scaling process? Has there been anything that you dislike? And somebody told me this and that was completely bogus. [00:09:31] Wesley Yates: It's okay to overpay. [00:09:35] Sam Wilson: Elaborate, please. [00:09:38] Wesley Yates: One thing I will say and whatever advice you're taking it from, vet out who is giving it, right. So if someone's telling you it's okay to overpay meaning you know what if it's a good deal and you believe in it, then it's okay to get more aggressive on your price. Like okay, but then I stood back and I reflected on who was telling me that was the guy that required me to use his broker to buy his deal that gets paid on commission based on price. So of course, he's going to tell you it's okay to overpay. But yeah, I would say that right? There is probably one of them. That's still It's like no, you mean, in real estate. And really anything, you make your money on the bot, right? You make your money on the buy, because there is a ceiling to a market, there is a ceiling to, to an industry, and including into every asset. So you've got to know what that is, and believe in your numbers stick to a criteria. And don't fall for it. You know, was, since we're big on quotes right now was Abe Lincoln said, Whoa, it was like, find your stance and stand firm or something like that. Like I probably butchered that one worse than you did. But, you know, basically, you know, that's a lot of the advice that I look at from the, you know, true leaders and true successful people. You know, Warren Buffett is a good one. I think right now, in today's times, it's never, it's never been more true, then be cautious when others are greedy, and greedy when others are cautious, right. And as we are going through this syndication has never been more hot of a topic. And I was looking at some people that were studying justification, they say there's going to be a 60% increase of syndicators in the next two years. So it's like, wow. And everyone's just trying to, you know, get there do get a deal. Get a deal, right. So, you know, in some just being out flat, greedy, we've had the lowest interest rates, and you know, whatever, almost right. And now we're fixing to go from that switch to where, look, the feds have just announced they're gonna rise again, and be even more aggressive than the last race. So and they're not done. So now's the time to really be cautious, and let others be greedy. And then later when the shoes on the other foot and you know, maybe we could see, hey, it might be a buyers market here soon. That's when it's time to get greedy with the right plan. [00:12:01] Sam Wilson: Yeah, that's for sure. Give me that. In practical terms, though. I mean, you guys are still actively buying, you're still actively looking at deals? What are you guys doing differently now, maybe than what you weren't doing? Or what are you guys doing differently now that you weren't doing six months or a year ago? [00:12:17] Wesley Yates: saying no. What I mean by that to elaborate is, you're gonna have some opportunities that come your way. And you got to understand is it a valid opportunity? Or is it just a time suck? Is it a, you know, risk? How much risk is with saying, yes, how much risk comes with actually acquiring the assets? We've had a whole lot more deals that we had the opportunity to be a part of that we said no, than the few that we were, I will be under, you know, understanding, looking back to where I was looking for that first deal. And so hungry and so almost desperate for it, it's hard to say no, it's hard not to try to make something work. But one thing that I've realized very early on, and I've just instilled it into every one of my team members is, you can't make a bad deal good. But you can make a good deal better. And that's really what it is of that is we screened more finally, we stick to our criteria. And at the end of the day as a syndicator, you're not looking for deals for you. Whether you realize that or not, you're not looking for deals for you. You're looking for deals for your investors, right? So what are your investors ultimately looking for? Because if you don't have a seller, if you don't have an investor, you better have the money yourself. So, you know, that's a lot of what we had to get, you know, more fine-tuned of what we're looking at and branching out to say, you know, what, there are more markets than just my backyard. [00:13:48] Sam Wilson: What? Yeah, I like that. Maybe that's you maybe you're gonna answer this question already. But what are you guys doing to be competitive? Like when you do put in an offer on a property, especially in multifamily? It's unlikely you're the only offer? So what are you guys doing to be competitive? [00:14:07] Wesley Yates: So a lot of that goes back before you even make that offer. A lot of that goes back and when people realize that this is a game of relationships with other co sponsors, but more importantly, with the gatekeepers, that's what I call my brokers. Ultimately, the brokers are the gatekeepers to the good deals, if they don't have a good feeling about your you and your capabilities, and ultimately, obviously, it's not just me, but when I say you, I mean my team, your team, then they're never going to push your package forward in front of that seller. You know, example right now, I was a good 300 I think maybe 500,000 under some of the other offers going into best and final. But the broker liked our team to the point where he encouraged the seller to still take our offer even a lesser amount because of who we are and what we have done. So even if you are looking at your first deal, co sponsor with someone that has been there that has a sucessful track record, that's how you can still overcome that. But take the time to really build your relationship with your brokers. Because that'll go a long way when the time really counts and do more than just put in an offer. When I put in my offer, I have a nice brochure that says who is VFR Capital Investments? What do we stand for? Why us, the bios of every member, the team and our portfolio and a nice PDF brochure versus just a letter, just a, you know, a Word document bio, or even worse an email, Hey, this is who I am in the body of an email. So take the time you get one first impression to that seller. I've had sellers actually come to properties and come up and say, Hey, while we were doing our due diligence, and they recognize us from our from the logo on my shirt, it was like, Oh, you're the VFR Capital Investments team. Yes. Hey, you know what, guys, I really want to let you know, I really liked your story. And your brochure really impressed me I had higher offers. But because y'all look like y'all were more prestige and more sophisticated, I ended up going with y'all. I've been told that twice now on two different properties during the due diligence that the sellers had to come out just to meet us. [00:16:23] Sam Wilson: That's cool. And that's, that's a good gold nugget, you know, getting, you know, developing your relationships with as you call it, the gatekeepers and doing more than just putting in your offers and finding ways. And those are relatively almost cost-free ways. You know, to stand out, some people are taking much more aggressive stances, and putting down you know, hey, we're gonna throw in a half-million bucks of hard money, day one, whatever it is, you know, trying to stroke the bigger check, which is, you know, that may be necessary to that's another card in the, in the deck of cards you can play, but I like what you're talking about. They're just an easy way to stand out. [00:17:05] Wesley Yates: Yeah. And I didn't have the deep pocket to go. I mean, I started this, I was making $24,000 a year, I was broke. So you know, having the deep pockets to be like, You know what, I'll just do a little bit more. Let me slide this over there. So I worked what I had, and I had the ability to take the time to actually get to know who I was going to be working with. And that was to me, in some cases to others. More important than how much dollars were on an offer. [00:17:32] Sam Wilson: Yeah, absolutely. What's one great piece of advice, we asked this question earlier a bad piece of advice he received? What's probably the best piece of advice you feel you've been given? [00:17:43] Wesley Yates: Hmm, that's a good one. I think you would probably be you know that. It's okay to say no, I know, I kind of discussed that. That's really something that that I've struggled with, but it's okay to say no, it's not an admittance of failure if you're saying no to something that is ultimately a dead end. Right. And that's something that I know some people might not relate to, but, you know, everything that dangles in front of you is not, it's not something that you need to chase, they could just truly be a carrot on the stick. [00:18:14] Sam Wilson: Right? Right. You have the stick at the end of the carrot. You gotta watch out for that stick. Yeah, yeah. That's absolutely awesome. Wesley, thanks for taking the time to come on today, really break down your story, how you have found success, the things you're doing to remain competitive, protect your downside, giving us some kind of insight on what you do to establish relationships with brokers and really just kind of your investment thesis and mindset that you've taken and implemented to get you to where you are today. If our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you, what is the best way to do that? Yeah, [00:18:47] Wesley Yates: So I've got my email, firstname.lastname@example.org. And you can look it up on Facebook or LinkedIn, we're there as well. And I'd be happy to connect and if there's anything I can do to help another co-sponsor, with their first deal or their hundreds of deals. We're always happy to sponsor beyond co-sponsor a deal and, and hopefully add value as well as hopefully maybe learn from another person's strategy. So that's, that's what we're about. [00:19:19] Sam Wilson: Awesome, Wesley, thank you so much. Appreciate it. [00:19:22] Wesley Yates: Thanks, Sam.

Keri Blakinger says there are no rules behind bars. In 2010, she was arrested on a drug charge and spent two years in prison. And although that statement might sound counterintuitive, Blakinger says that inside the prison, no one is watching when it matters. In her memoir Corrections in Ink, she writes about her path from high-achieving teenager to incarcerated woman to reporter and writer. In an interview with Ailsa Chang on All Things Considered, she says reporting on the prison system has been meaningful because she gets to amplify the stories of those who are just where she used to be.

The arc of the future bends in the direction of person-centered care. While payment reform is critical, our nation must also deliver whole-person care models that are exquisitely attuned to both medical and non-medical needs and intentional about addressing unique problems facing racial and ethnic minorities. The entrenched interests perpetuating the status quo of the fee-for-service, medical-industrial complex are immense; however, the pandemic is a catalyst for consumer-driven, value-based payment reform. In this week's episode of Race to Value, you will hear from Dr. Mark McClellan, former CMS Administrator and current Director of the Duke Margolis Center for Health Policy. As one of the leading physician economists and health policy leaders in our country, he discusses the future of health reform and value-based care. We cover such topics as health policy and alternative payment models, COVID-19 impacts on healthcare, advanced primary care that goes upstream in the detection and treatment of chronic disease, technology-enabled care delivery transformation, health equity and social determinants of health, specialist integration in person-centered care models, and the path forward to comprehensive value-based care in our country.

Seeing sales in a new light: Ex global business director Gillian Selby talks about the impact of taking a collaborative approach to sales, and elevating your business as one unit, rather than seeing sales as a stand alone entity. She explores the value of having a service mindset approach, as opposed to a company seeing themselves as the experts and expecting clients to come to them. She explains the longer term value of wanting to be of service to people; going out and meeting them where they are; listening first to establish the needs they may have. This may mean a slightly slower take off in terms of sales, but will lead to much higher revenue and return. The cost of client acquisition is high, and Gillian looks at how a business can increase the sustainability of their client relationships, looking for a longer term investment in clients, rather than the "sales-driven" approach, which may be quicker but is less sustainable in terms of client relationships. The entire company needs to be included in this type of approach, and the sales team need to be involved in more than just selling.

David's Coaching Business Connect with David on LinkedIn Resources & People Mentioned Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life Record your podcast episodes on Riverside Why you need to identify your “mouse in the room” David is releasing a book called “Mouse in the Room” (because the elephant isn't usually alone). It's all about addressing the little animals in the room (i.e. fears) you may not normally share with someone. When you reveal your fear and connect yourself to it, it can help you overcome it. Once you get clarity on what you're afraid of, you can choose to tell the other person/people. It makes a decision or action far less scary. David has always been drawn to performance—improv, standup comedy, motivational speaking, music, etc. But he was hesitant about acting. But 8 months ago, he realized he wanted to move to LA, get training, get an agent, and audition. He had never told anyone about the desire. But he “named the mouse” and shared the desire with someone. Naming the mouse gave him energy. And the friend he'd shared with called him a week later and asked him to join her to audition for a professional production of a play. So he did. He got cast as the lead. Now he can say he's a working professional actor. He's still a coach and a trainer—and he's also following his dreams. David shares a powerful thought: "Just because you see someone do something that seems courageous doesn't mean that they're fearless. But they're willing to have that fear and work through it.” How can you go for it and honor yourself so you don't say, “I wish” on your deathbed? It takes courage to give your all and live your life. Reaching your goals takes focus and discipline Entrepreneurs see all of the possibilities. But they can only spread themselves so far. You add in social media, text messages, phone calls—it's no wonder that most people are dealing with stress and anxiety. It slows down your goals. Sometimes you need someone else to help you say “stop.” By focusing on less, you can produce more. It's possible to get twice as much of the personal stuff done in half the time you're spending now. How? The answer is discipline. What matters to you over the next twelve months? What are the three business goals and the three life goals that matter to you that will have you celebrating 12 months from now? When you achieve one of these goals, return to your full list of goals and add a “Bonus goal” into the mix. This is only for people who want to be extraordinary. How can you be “30% more courageous?” How do you balance being sensible AND daring? Listen to hear David's thoughts!
