"You can't redead the dead by you saying something shit," says Cariad Lloyd of Griefcast and author of You Are Not Alone; nevertheless when you're bereaved, people still are usually so nervous to say the wrong thing that they often don't say anything at all. And especially not the word 'dead'. Maybe what we need, says council funeral officer Evie King, author of Ashes To Admin, is a "jazzy snazzy term for death, the 'bottomless brunch' of death..."

Brigham McCown, the former Acting Administrator at the Pipelines & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (“PHMSA”) inside the Department of Transportation gives the facts on the East Palestine derailment and a bit of a history lesson to put it into perspective. Though East Palestine has shocked the nation, the rail industry is actually significantly safer than in the 1960s and 1970s which saw incidents of similar magnitude happening at much greater frequency. These events are not unprecedented, though the 24-hour cable news cycle that did not exist in earlier times would suggest so. There is reason for optimism for the people impacted by the disaster. Mr. McCown explains the safety record of rail vs. pipelines and offers instructive advice for making the transport of essential hazardous materials more safe. Both Jacki and Mr. McCown grew up on the Ohio River. Jacki offers her view of what should be done to help the people of East Palestine. - - - - - Vivek Ramaswamy has announced his run for the presidency. Mr. Ramaswamy was a guest of the show, promoting his first book, Woke Inc., and has been an historic trailblazer in offering an alternative to ESG (environmental, social, and governance) politically motivated investments. Jacki shares her excitement for Mr. Ramaswamy to enter the fray. - - - - - Jacki shares research from Robert Bryce tracing the 4.5 billion flowing through just the top 25 U.S. organizations promoting wind & solar companies, compared to less than 1 billion to organizations that support for traditional energy (nuclear, fossil fuels, etc.).
Today I wanted to share a little bit of my thoughts on the recent Casting Director controversy, as well as fact check my old blog post from 2018. Titled, "Little Acting Admin Tasks We Forget About", this is a blog I wrote about actor homework given to me at the time by my then-coach Brian Patacca. It was all based around making sure I had everything up-to-date and accurate on my end, to make it easier for casting and reps to find me. But a lot has changed in these 5 years, and the things we have to do now to keep up may not be the same as they were. So join me as I fact check myself and see what I got right and what I disagree with now. 00:00 — Intro 01:05 — The Casting Director Self Tape Controversy 06:33 — Reacting to My Blog 08:20 — "Little Acting Admin Tasks We Forget About" 11:30 — Task #1 16:23 — Task #2 17:30 — Task #3 18:00 — Task #4 22:50 — Final Reflections Resources Mentioned in This Episode: Little Actor Admin Tasks We Forget About Deadline Article: "SAG-AFTRA Scolds Casting Offices For Charging For Audition Tapes: “It Is An Optical And Ethical Disaster” by Lynette Rice and David Robb Request Credits from IMDb Backstage 2012 Article: Casting Workshop Crackdown by Dan Holloway OBA 10.5 - Actor, Comedian, and Improv Queen Dana Powell on How the Pandemic Changed the Game Watch the Full-Length Video Podcast Here -------- Want more?

Leadership Currency with Dr. Doug McKinley
As a professional, what activity helps you relieve stress and tension? Many leaders confuse hobbies with interests, which are not synonymous. Hobbies are those things you do frequently that renew your passions, energy, and perhaps even your soul. Dr. McKinley invited Dr. Kim Furry, an orthopedic surgeon, to join him on the podcast today. The conversation weaves between her work as a surgeon, her hobby of photography, and the importance of having both in her life.To Order Doug's Books: The Resiliency QuestMad About UsVisit Doug's Website: DougMcKinley.comTo Listen to Leadership Currency Podcast: Leadership Currency Podcast

(3:29) Increasing Life Quality Most of us have the tendency to overwork and really commit ourselves that we lose our most precious resource. Time. That is why many fail to withstand the pressure life throws at them. It is important to get back your time and never lose it because if you can buy back your time, you can definitely increase your quality of life and performance as a whole. (6:54) Time Assassin The most common time assassins are the Self Medicator, the Saver, the Supervisor and the Staller. All these different attributes exist as individuals in a business and they really have the tendency to slow down or interrupt the growth of a company and workflow as a whole. (12:07) Time Worth If you do anything that you could have paid somebody else, that buyback rate or less, you're literally working against yourself. You can't build a $10 million company off a $10 task. There's not enough hours in the day. And also instead of hiring more people so you should hire people that will help buy back time out of your calendar. (14:52) Buy Back Time Instead of hiring two people to do multiple things thinking it will be efficient, it's better to just give the most valuable employee more roles to take because one efficient employee is better than having two of them doing tasks that can be easily done alone. This is how you buy back time efficiently. (17:08) Hiring Order The hiring order is Admin, then Delivery, then, Marketing and then Sales.

(21:30) Playbook A playbook is a very important part of handling a business that most CEOs do not even follow. It is important because it has all the necessary guidelines to run the business and also for every employee to be able to follow the guidelines. If it's not followed the business will just crumble and the employee might just lose a spot in the company. Links: @Danmartell @danmartell www.buybackyourtime.com

A Q&A episode with Peter Leithart, James Bejon, Alastair Roberts, and Jeff Meyers. Here, they address the following questions: 1. What is the significance/purpose of the spirit of God hovering over the waters at the beginning of creation? What waters is the spirit hovering over? What does ramifications does it have on Trinitarian theology? Is this the Holy Spirit hovering over the waters? And lastly WHY is the spirit of God hovering over the waters? 2. How would you describe and defend the boundaries of sacramental administration? Practically, can a group outside the institutional church celebrate the Lord's supper? In the absence of a faithful paedobaptist Church can a father take his child to the lake and baptize her? 3. What arguments for and against for having the sursum corda before the readings instead of before the Eucharist. 4. Please discuss the thesis that the story of the Levite's Concubine, the subsequent civil war and then kidnap of women into forced marriage is a case study in the dynamics of domestic abuse and how abusers manipulate society in order to get away with their crimes. _____ Upcoming Events Regional Course: How to Sing the Psalms (West Monroe, LA) https://theopolisinstitute.com/gatherings/regional-course-how-to-sing-the-psalms-west-monroe-la/ Regional Course: How to Sing the Psalms (Chicago) https://theopolisinstitute.com/gatherings/regional-course-how-to-sing-the-psalms-unity-me-copy/ Theopolis Workshop: Numberology https://theopolisinstitute.com/courses/theopolis-workshop-numberology/ Regional Course: The Death and Resurrection of David (Birmingham) https://theopolisinstitute.com/gatherings/regional-course-the-death-and-resurrection-of-david-birmingham/ Theopolitan Ministry Conference: Love https://theopolisinstitute.com/gatherings/theopolitan-ministry-conference-love/ Trinity Feast: The Joy and Freedom of Being God's Creature https://theopolisinstitute.com/gatherings/trinity-feast/ ______________________ Give to Theopolis and become a partner! theopolisinstitute.com/give/ ______________________ Sign up for In Medias Res mailchi.mp/0b01d726f2fe/inmediasres How to Chant the Psalms www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCdbOL5taVo Give to our work and become a partner. theopolisinstitute.com/give/ ________ Theopolis on Youtube www.youtube.com/c/Theopolisinstitute New audio project, the Theopolis Blogcast!

Leadership Currency with Dr. Doug McKinley
Accountability reflects an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility for one's actions. When a person accepts responsibility, that person is committed to generating positive forward motion, or “taking ownership.” Sometimes responsibility is expected by assuming a pre-determined role within an organization. In this podcast, Dr. McKinley discusses the dance between the two motivators of obligation and willingness. He shares a powerful tool that can help you determine your own ownership level, or that of a colleague.

Old Testament: Numbers 3 Numbers 3 (Listen) The Sons of Aaron 3 These are the generations of Aaron and Moses at the time when the LORD spoke with Moses on Mount Sinai. 2 These are the names of the sons of Aaron: Nadab the firstborn, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 3 These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the anointed priests, whom he ordained to serve as priests. 4 But Nadab and Abihu died before the LORD when they offered unauthorized fire before the LORD in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children. So Eleazar and Ithamar served as priests in the lifetime of Aaron their father. Duties of the Levites 5 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 6 “Bring the tribe of Levi near, and set them before Aaron the priest, that they may minister to him. 7 They shall keep guard over him and over the whole congregation before the tent of meeting, as they minister at the tabernacle. 8 They shall guard all the furnishings of the tent of meeting, and keep guard over the people of Israel as they minister at the tabernacle. 9 And you shall give the Levites to Aaron and his sons; they are wholly given to him from among the people of Israel. 10 And you shall appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall guard their priesthood. But if any outsider comes near, he shall be put to death.” 11 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 12 “Behold, I have taken the Levites from among the people of Israel instead of every firstborn who opens the womb among the people of Israel. The Levites shall be mine, 13 for all the firstborn are mine. On the day that I struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, I consecrated for my own all the firstborn in Israel, both of man and of beast. They shall be mine: I am the LORD.” 14 And the LORD spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying, 15 “List the sons of Levi, by fathers' houses and by clans; every male from a month old and upward you shall list.” 16 So Moses listed them according to the word of the LORD, as he was commanded. 17 And these were the sons of Levi by their names: Gershon and Kohath and Merari. 18 And these are the names of the sons of Gershon by their clans: Libni and Shimei. 19 And the sons of Kohath by their clans: Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. 20 And the sons of Merari by their clans: Mahli and Mushi. These are the clans of the Levites, by their fathers' houses. 21 To Gershon belonged the clan of the Libnites and the clan of the Shimeites; these were the clans of the Gershonites. 22 Their listing according to the number of all the males from a month old and upward was1 7,500. 23 The clans of the Gershonites were to camp behind the tabernacle on the west, 24 with Eliasaph, the son of Lael as chief of the fathers' house of the Gershonites. 25 And the guard duty of the sons of Gershon in the tent of meeting involved the tabernacle, the tent with its covering, the screen for the entrance of the tent of meeting, 26 the hangings of the court, the screen for the door of the court that is around the tabernacle and the altar, and its cords—all the service connected with these. 27 To Kohath belonged the clan of the Amramites and the clan of the Izharites and the clan of the Hebronites and the clan of the Uzzielites; these are the clans of the Kohathites. 28 According to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, there were 8,600, keeping guard over the sanctuary. 29 The clans of the sons of Kohath were to camp on the south side of the tabernacle, 30 with Elizaphan the son of Uzziel as chief of the fathers' house of the clans of the Kohathites. 31 And their guard duty involved the ark, the table, the lampstand, the altars, the vessels of the sanctuary with which the priests minister, and the screen; all the service connected with these. 32 And Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest was to be chief over the chiefs of the Levites, and to have oversight of those who kept guard over the sanctuary. 33 To Merari belonged the clan of the Mahlites and the clan of the Mushites: these are the clans of Merari. 34 Their listing according to the number of all the males from a month old and upward was 6,200. 35 And the chief of the fathers' house of the clans of Merari was Zuriel the son of Abihail. They were to camp on the north side of the tabernacle. 36 And the appointed guard duty of the sons of Merari involved the frames of the tabernacle, the bars, the pillars, the bases, and all their accessories; all the service connected with these; 37 also the pillars around the court, with their bases and pegs and cords. 38 Those who were to camp before the tabernacle on the east, before the tent of meeting toward the sunrise, were Moses and Aaron and his sons, guarding the sanctuary itself, to protect2 the people of Israel. And any outsider who came near was to be put to death. 39 All those listed among the Levites, whom Moses and Aaron listed at the commandment of the LORD, by clans, all the males from a month old and upward, were 22,000. Redemption of the Firstborn 40 And the LORD said to Moses, “List all the firstborn males of the people of Israel, from a month old and upward, taking the number of their names. 41 And you shall take the Levites for me—I am the LORD—instead of all the firstborn among the people of Israel, and the cattle of the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the cattle of the people of Israel.” 42 So Moses listed all the firstborn among the people of Israel, as the LORD commanded him. 43 And all the firstborn males, according to the number of names, from a month old and upward as listed were 22,273. 44 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 45 “Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the people of Israel, and the cattle of the Levites instead of their cattle. The Levites shall be mine: I am the LORD. 46 And as the redemption price for the 273 of the firstborn of the people of Israel, over and above the number of the male Levites, 47 you shall take five shekels3 per head; you shall take them according to the shekel of the sanctuary (the shekel of twenty gerahs4), 48 and give the money to Aaron and his sons as the redemption price for those who are over.” 49 So Moses took the redemption money from those who were over and above those redeemed by the Levites. 50 From the firstborn of the people of Israel he took the money, 1,365 shekels, by the shekel of the sanctuary. 51 And Moses gave the redemption money to Aaron and his sons, according to the word of the LORD, as the LORD commanded Moses. Footnotes  3:22 Hebrew their listing was  3:38 Hebrew guard  3:47 A shekel was about 2/5 ounce or 11 grams  3:47 A gerah was about 1/50 ounce or 0.6 gram (ESV) New Testament: Luke 3:23–4:13 Luke 3:23–4:13 (Listen) The Genealogy of Jesus Christ 23 Jesus, when he began his ministry, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli, 24 the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Jannai, the son of Joseph, 25 the son of Mattathias, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum, the son of Esli, the son of Naggai, 26 the son of Maath, the son of Mattathias, the son of Semein, the son of Josech, the son of Joda, 27 the son of Joanan, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel,1 the son of Neri, 28 the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elmadam, the son of Er, 29 the son of Joshua, the son of Eliezer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, 30 the son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonam, the son of Eliakim, 31 the son of Melea, the son of Menna, the son of Mattatha, the son of Nathan, the son of David, 32 the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Boaz, the son of Sala, the son of Nahshon, 33 the son of Amminadab, the son of Admin, the son of Arni, the son of Hezron, the son of Perez, the son of Judah, 34 the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor, 35 the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah, 36 the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech, 37 the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalaleel, the son of Cainan, 38 the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God. The Temptation of Jesus 4 And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness 2 for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, he was hungry. 3 The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” 4 And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.'” 5 And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, 6 and said to him, “To you I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. 7 If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.” 8 And Jesus answered him, “It is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'” 9 And he took him to Jerusalem and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, 10 for it is written, “‘He will command his angels concerning you, to guard you,' 11 and “‘On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.'” 12 And Jesus answered him, “It is said, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.'” 13 And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time. Footnotes  3:27 Greek Salathiel (ESV) Psalm: Psalm 63 Psalm 63 (Listen) My Soul Thirsts for You A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. 63 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.3 Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.4 So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. 5 My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,6 when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night;7 for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.8 My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me. 9 But those who seek to destroy my life shall go down into the depths of the earth;10 they shall be given over to the power of the sword; they shall be a portion for jackals.11 But the king shall rejoice in God; all who swear by him shall exult, for the mouths of liars will be stopped. (ESV) Proverb: Proverbs 11:23 Proverbs 11:23 (Listen) 23 The desire of the righteous ends only in good, the expectation of the wicked in wrath. (ESV)

New Live Course Registration for March 20th, 2023: GitHub Actions and Argo CD for K8sBret is joined by Natan Yellin, the co-founder of Robusta.dev to talk Kubernetes and Prometheus monitoring, alerting, and maybe some CPU limit ranting. Robusta tries to fill the gap left by Kubernetes' own AlertManager which has a very specific and not so helpful way of decribing events in your cluster. This makes it hard to diagnose the cause of the event and you're left with Google, StackOverflow and an awful lot of head-scratching. Robusta acts as a proxy between AlertManager and your notification platform of choice.In the show we talk about what Robusta is, how to deploy it in your clusters, and Natan also details some of the enhancements in their cloud offering that you can layer on top of that, which has a generous free tier.Streamed live on YouTube on January 5, 2023.Unedited live recording of this show on YouTube (Ep. #197).

Crushed by Margaret Cabourn-Smith
Still Game's Sanjeev Kohli is Margaret's guest this week. It's a bit of a tearjerker, looking back at Sanjeev's primary school crushes. As he says - for the first 30 years of his life, all his love was unrequited. Except for his mum. (Life was tough for a Glaswegian metalhead in the 1980s). Sanjeev and Margaret talk about first love, 1980s hedge porn, and running into your old flames at a school reunion. Admin klaxon - We have finally sorted out our first live date - head to Substack for details, we'll post a link to tickets. It's going to be very exciting. https://crushedbymcs.substack.com/ As always, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org It's a big one next time - Crushed's first anniversary. Margaret's husband Dant will be popping in to shed some light on what it's like living with someone who has so many crushes, and sharing some of his own stories from his teenaged years. Absolutely glorious. Look out for that. Til then, Team Crushed x
RHLSTP Book Club 45 - Ashes to Admin. Richard talks to Evie King (if that is her real name) about her new book about her council job of organising funerals for people who don't have the means to pay for them. It's a surprisingly affecting story about a woman doing a job you've never thought about, much more fastidiously and empathetically than is required and a celebration of life and a treatise on death, as well as being full of intrigue, mystery and humour. They discuss why murderers haven't thought it through, how even those who have done bad things deserve a dignified send off, why you need a strong stomach for this job and how your life can be affected and changed by someone who you never met, who is no longer alive. It's a strong recommend for this excellent book which hopefully will one day be a TV series. But who will play Evie? And who will play the dead suspected paedo? (Yeah, the second question is easier to answer than the first).https://www.lovereading.co.uk/book/9781915306302/isbn/Ashes-To-Admin-Tales-from-the-Caseload-of-a-Council-Funeral-Officer-by-Evie-King.htmlSUPPORT THE SHOW!Watch our TWITCH CHANNELSee extra content at our WEBSITE Become a member at https://plus.acast.com/s/rhlstp.

Col McClam is a career infantry officer and currently the Commanding Officer of The Basic School in Quantico, Virginia. Col McClam discusses the acronym "MOAS," which stands for Mentorship, Opportunity, Advocacy, and Sponsorship. This episode is filled with great "Moments in Leadership" that should be heard by every leader, both officer and enlisted, especially by TBS Lieutenants and Midshipmen and Officer Candidates. Embedded in MOAS is the importance of performance and how it is the currency by which every leader is evaluated for future potential in the Marine Corps. He pulls no punches and makes it clear that performing is a contact sport. He discusses the importance of performance because while you cannot always control where you get assigned, you CAN ALWAYS control your performance. He teaches performance is underpinned by two metrics: Relationships and Personal Brand. The key is understanding how to navigate the complex territory of performing consistently on a daily basis while maintaining relationships and demonstrating your personal brand. It is performance in all situations and environments…not just in your PMOS. He feels every officer should be taught this from OCS until retirement. He tells the young officers at TBS not to believe or think they are being left out because of their differences. He knows it's not about changing WHO you are; it is about changing HOW you are in this complex ecosystem called the United States Marine Corps. He believes, accurately, I may add, that we all have to assimilate when we join organizations - it happens at Google, Apple, Amazon, and Waffle House, to name a few. He told me he has changed "how" he is within the Corps and how you may need to do the same.

Moments in Leadership will immerse you in real-life stories where you will learn about the challenging situations these accomplished leaders faced and discover the lessons they learned early in their careers that were the most influential in developing their overall leadership style. Conceptualized by a group of friends who served together as young officers in the early to mid-1990s sitting around a firepit telling funny leadership stories, Moments in Leadership is designed to provide some relatable context to the formal leadership training leaders of all ranks and services receive throughout their military careers through the power of storytelling.

Leadership Currency with Dr. Doug McKinley
In addition to being with family, the workplace offers individuals a way to experience and express that they are not an island unto themselves. Without work, or a way to contribute, people often feel excluded from society. Lucy Zielinski, a trusted colleague and friend, joins Dr. McKinley on the podcast today. Lucy shares her views on the true nature of work and reminds us that there is something meaningful in the work itself. Most people just need a little reminder of why it is we need and like to work.To Order Doug's Books: The Resiliency QuestMad About UsVisit Doug's Website: DougMcKinley.comTo Listen to Leadership Currency Podcast: Leadership Currency Podcast

A podcast to answer all your questions about productivity, time management, self-development and goal planning. My name is Carl Pullein and I am your host for this show. This episode is for the 95% or so of you who are using a task manager and a calendar and not doing a weekly planning session. The truth is, if you're collecting all this stuff and then not planning out when you will do anything about it, you're heading for a catastrophic failure. It's why so many people are constantly switching apps—it forces you to actually do some planning and organising, but it also stops you from doing any work. All this stuff we are collecting is information. Information we want to be reminded of, perhaps do something with or delegate it. Yet, if you are not doing any kind of planning, most of this information will get lost inside your task manager or notes app and you've just created a horrendous list of stuff you've made no decisions about. They often say information is power. This is not strictly true. Information is only powerful if you act on it. We all know how to lose weight, and we also know it is dangerous to be overweight for your long-term health. Yet statistics show that 60% of the US adult population is dangerously overweight. So there's clearly a large number of people not acting on the information they have. However, once you do become consistent with your weekly planning (and daily planning to an extent), you will see some incredible results. The first thing you will notice is how relaxed you've become. Knowing you have the week planned, that nothing has fallen through the cracks and you're ready to get started leaves you without any worries or anxieties. You'll wonder how you ever survived without it. Anyway, enough of me going on about weekly planning, let me now hand you over to the Mystery Podcast Voice for this week's question. This week's question comes from Amy. Amy asks, Hi Carl, I've taken your Time Sector course and it's completely changed my life. I feel so much more in control of what I am doing each day. The one area I really struggle with, though, is the reviews. I try so hard to sit down at the weekend for an hour to go through everything but keep avoiding it. Do you have any tips or tricks to help me become better at these? Hi Ally, thank you for your question. I suspect a lot of the difficulties with motivating ourselves to do the weekly planning sessions is because we've come to think it's going to take at least an hour. The truth is, if you are consistently doing these sessions, you will soon find it takes you less than thirty minutes. Mine, for instance, takes around twenty minutes for the most part, although I do often do a longer one on the last Saturday of the month. Let's first look at the timing of your weekly planning session. I did quite a bit of experimenting with the best time to do this. Turned out, Sunday nights was the worst time to do it. You spent all weekend worrying about all the things you think you needed to do next week and it felt like Sunday night was the beginning of your working week. Plus, it can be very hard to motivate yourself to get up and go to a quiet room to do some planning when you are fully relaxed. Friday afternoons looked promising, but I found I was tired and just wanted to get home. I found the best time to do the weekly planning session was actually Saturday morning. The reason for this was I had no excuses. It's the first thing you do on Saturday morning and generally, you can wake up a little later and you feel well rested. Plus, the week is still fresh in your mind so it's less likely you will forget anything. The biggest benefit, though, is once you've done it, you can relax and enjoy your weekend. Your brain isn't going to throw up anything that you may have forgotten and you feel a lot less stressed and in control. So the first tip I would suggest is do your weekly planning first thing Saturday morning. Next what do you include in your weekly planning? Well, the first thing to do is to clear your inboxes. Hopefully, your email inbox is relatively clear already, but here I mean your task manager's and notes' inbox. What you are doing is organising everything you've collected and deciding when you are going to do the tasks. Once your inboxes are clear, you look at your This Week folder to see what's left over and decide a) if you still need to do it and b) if you do, decide when you will reschedule it to. Then move to your Next Week folder and move any tasks in there that need pulling forward to This Week. Once you have done that, open your calendar, and add dates to those tasks for the days you have the time to do them. Your calendar will guide you towards the best days to do the longer tasks. The goal here is not about what you get done on an individual day, it's more about what you get done in the week. So if you don't complete all your tasks on Monday, all you need do is move any unfinished tasks to later in the week. Another quick tip here, always keep in mind new tasks will be coming in that need to be done that week. This is why you do not want to be filling your days up. It's okay to have one or two days where you may stack the tasks up, but do keep a few days relatively easy for those additional tasks you will inevitably collect. Now, this week, I introduced a new concept for helping people be more consistent with their weekly planning. I call it the Weekly Planning Matrix and it's made of of four squares. These are: Core work, Projects/issues, Personal/ areas of focus and the radar. This matrix should be used t get you started once your inboxes are clear. The first box, your core work, will be fixed. It will be the same each week. These are the tasks that get your primary work done. Your core work is the work you are paid to do, not the ancillary work we've added. For instance, if you are a salesperson, your job is to sell. It is not to sit in meetings with your colleagues and boss talking about sales. Your core work happens when you are in front of your customers making sales. Admin is not core work unless you are an administrator. It might be necessary, but it is not core work. When you set up your weekly planning matrix, you write out your core work and there is remains until your job changes. The reason it's in the matrix is you need to know you must find time for doing this work each week. Next up in the top right, is your projects and issues area. This is where you list out the projects you want to, or need to, work on that week. It also includes any issues that need resolving related to your work. Just getting these off your mind will ease the anxiety. Be careful here, you do not want to overloading this area. Remember you will only have around forty hours available for all your work. Overloading this area and either you will have to steal time from your personal life—which should only ever be used in extreme circumstances—or you will find important things will be sacrificed for the loud less important things. Next, in the bottom left of your matrix is the personal and areas of focus area. This is where you will list out the important personal things you need to get done that week. It's also where you would highlight any areas of focus that may have been neglected over recent weeks or months. What can you do to get them back on track. Finally, there is my favourite area. The radar. This is in the bottom right of your matrix and it's for all those things you want to keep an eye on. It's quite hard to explain what the radar is in word, but imagine you are sat in front of a radar screen with everything going on in your life represented as little dots on the radar screen. You cannot focus on all of them at once, you have to decide which ones to look at. It's these you will list down in this box. I use this for things I might be waiting for, issues or projects that, while don't need my personal input, maybe something I want to keep an eye on. I also use it for projects or appointments that are coming up that I want to be thinking about that week. And that's it. Once I've written things out in this matrix, I can transfer tasks to my task manager if they are not already there, schedule time on my calendar to work on things if I need blocks of time for them and to make sure that what I am asking of myself that week is realistic and balanced. If you keep your matrix in your notes app, you have a reference point to start from the following week and you see how you did again your plan. You also have a working document you can use each evening for when you plan the next day. Oh… Did I not mention the daily planning? Well, this is a simple task you should perform each evening before you finish the day. All you are doing is confirming that you upcoming day is realistic—that you haven't overloaded it with things you know you will not have time to do. It's also a good time to look at your task manager's inbox to make sure there are no fires in there and to clear it if you have time. You should also look at your calendar to make sure you know when your appointments are and look for gaps in between commitments where you can decide when you will do your tasks. It's amazing how often you will find you have say six or seven hours of meetings and twenty plus tasks scheduled for the same day. I mean, who are you kidding? You're not going to get all that done. You need to go into your task manager and reduce the number of tasks or cancel some appointments. And that's the fine art of prioritisation. Which is another subject altogether. So, in total, Amy, your weekly planning will take no more than thirty to forty minutes, and the daily planning should take around ten minutes. It will take longer initially, you're learning new habits and developing new processes. It's worth sticking with because over time you will find you can shortcut the process and make it even faster when the need arises. For instance, I have a quick closing down planning session I can do in two or three minutes if I need to. I don't like t odd that everyday, but on my rare days off, if we are out for a trip somewhere and I get home late, I will do the 2 minute planning session. SO, there you go. That's how to perform the daily and weekly planning sessions. I hope that helps, Amy. Thank you for your question. And thank you to you too for listening. It just remains for me now to wish you all a very very productive week.
One of the biggest time-sucks for any tradie in business is the financial admin... invoicing, reconciliations, paying BAS, paying bills, quoting and chasing payments. Our guest today has many years experience in the banking industry and in fact, was behind the launch of one of the first mobile banking apps for a major bank here in Australia! Since then he's gone on to launch his own apps with Thriday being his proudest achievement to date. Michael is passionate about getting rid of financial admin from small business owners' lives so we hope you enjoy learning more about Thriday as much as we did!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Have you ever had a boss or superior that made you wonder how in the heck they ever landed their position in the first place? In our Police, Fire, Military and Families Facebook Group as well as in my coaching practice, I hear stories of poor leadership all of the time. If you were to poll first responders and ask what their biggest complaint about the workplace is, I would venture to guess that Admin is right up there with the brutality shed upon them by the media. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once said, “You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.” Tune in as Coach Ashlie Walton and Detective Walton break down leadership in the workplace and how we can all do better at having the conversations that nobody seems to want to have. ⩥ PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL ⩤ https://bi3xbvVont.ly/ CLICK HERE for our best-selling products: https://amzn.to/3xaG3xw and https://rdbl.co/3DIQVUC CLICK HERE to join our free Police, Fire, Military and Families Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/38w2e7r Check out our website and learn more about how you can work with LEO Warriors by going to: https://www.leowarriors.com/ Like what you hear?

New Live Course Registration for March 20th, 2023: GitHub Actions and Argo CD for K8sBret is joined by two pros from the NGINX team, Robert Haynes and Brian Ehlert to break down the various use cases of NGINX on Kubernetes, and help you decide when and where you'll be using it.There's a lot going on around NGINX and I wanted to focus this conversation around NGINX on Kubernetes, and specifically the two ways you can run it for cluster ingress. We also get into some of the advanced scenarios of using NGINX, like caching and web application firewalls (WAF).Many of us are using NGINX somewhere in our clusters. I found it very interesting how Robert, Brian, and the team at F5 spend a lot of time showing customers how they can use it in many ways to avoid deploying additional products on their clusters. I'm a big fan of reducing complexity.Streamed live on YouTube on December 15, 2022.Unedited live recording of this show on YouTube (Ep. #195).★Topics★Intro to K8s networkingK8s + NGINXThe basic Kubernetes Ingress provider of NGINXThe official NGINX team Ingress CRD (more features)Gateway API for K8sMonitoring NGINXMonitoring NGINX with Prometheus★Brian Ehlert★Brian Ehlert on Twitter★Robert Haynes★Robert Haynes on Twitter★Join my Community★New live course on CI automation and gitops deploymentsBest coupons for my Docker and Kubernetes coursesChat with us and fellow students on our Discord Server DevOps FansGrab some merch at Bret's Loot BoxHomepage bretfisher.com (00:00) - DDT MAIN (00:04) - Intro (03:16) - Custom intro (05:04) - Main show (05:09) - Introductions (05:28) - Today's topic (06:03) - Question: Common NGINX use cases (07:44) - NGINX's web server capabilities (08:34) - Common NGINX on Kubernetes considerations (11:51) - API gateway vs ingress (16:35) - Ingress configurations and policies (18:58) - CRD with ingress project (22:15) - When people adopt Kubernetes (24:56) - Free vs Paid version (29:40) - Question (29:50) - Last-minute risky annotations (34:15) - Validating NGINX configs (37:07) - Avoiding NGINX config manipulation (42:09) - Questions (43:23) - Monitoring in NGINX (44:55) - Prometheus exporter (46:22) - Question about caching (52:02) - Question (53:44) - Wrapping up (56:28) - Outro Support this show and get exclusive benefits on Patreon, YouTube, or bretfisher.com!
With family: Genesis 50; Luke 3 Genesis 50 (Listen) 50 Then Joseph fell on his father's face and wept over him and kissed him. 2 And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father. So the physicians embalmed Israel. 3 Forty days were required for it, for that is how many are required for embalming. And the Egyptians wept for him seventy days. 4 And when the days of weeping for him were past, Joseph spoke to the household of Pharaoh, saying, “If now I have found favor in your eyes, please speak in the ears of Pharaoh, saying, 5 ‘My father made me swear, saying, “I am about to die: in my tomb that I hewed out for myself in the land of Canaan, there shall you bury me.” Now therefore, let me please go up and bury my father. Then I will return.'” 6 And Pharaoh answered, “Go up, and bury your father, as he made you swear.” 7 So Joseph went up to bury his father. With him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his household, and all the elders of the land of Egypt, 8 as well as all the household of Joseph, his brothers, and his father's household. Only their children, their flocks, and their herds were left in the land of Goshen. 9 And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen. It was a very great company. 10 When they came to the threshing floor of Atad, which is beyond the Jordan, they lamented there with a very great and grievous lamentation, and he made a mourning for his father seven days. 11 When the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning on the threshing floor of Atad, they said, “This is a grievous mourning by the Egyptians.” Therefore the place was named Abel-mizraim;1 it is beyond the Jordan. 12 Thus his sons did for him as he had commanded them, 13 for his sons carried him to the land of Canaan and buried him in the cave of the field at Machpelah, to the east of Mamre, which Abraham bought with the field from Ephron the Hittite to possess as a burying place. 14 After he had buried his father, Joseph returned to Egypt with his brothers and all who had gone up with him to bury his father. God's Good Purposes 15 When Joseph's brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, “It may be that Joseph will hate us and pay us back for all the evil that we did to him.” 16 So they sent a message to Joseph, saying, “Your father gave this command before he died: 17 ‘Say to Joseph, “Please forgive the transgression of your brothers and their sin, because they did evil to you.”' And now, please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father.” Joseph wept when they spoke to him. 18 His brothers also came and fell down before him and said, “Behold, we are your servants.” 19 But Joseph said to them, “Do not fear, for am I in the place of God? 20 As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people2 should be kept alive, as they are today. 21 So do not fear; I will provide for you and your little ones.” Thus he comforted them and spoke kindly to them. The Death of Joseph 22 So Joseph remained in Egypt, he and his father's house. Joseph lived 110 years. 23 And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation. The children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were counted as Joseph's own.3 24 And Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die, but God will visit you and bring you up out of this land to the land that he swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.” 25 Then Joseph made the sons of Israel swear, saying, “God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here.” 26 So Joseph died, being 110 years old. They embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt. Footnotes  50:11 Abel-mizraim means mourning (or meadow) of Egypt  50:20 Or a numerous people  50:23 Hebrew were born on Joseph's knees (ESV) Luke 3 (Listen) John the Baptist Prepares the Way 3 In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, 2 during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the wilderness. 3 And he went into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 4 As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord,1 make his paths straight.5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall become straight, and the rough places shall become level ways,6 and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'” 7 He said therefore to the crowds that came out to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bear fruits in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.' For I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham. 9 Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.” 10 And the crowds asked him, “What then shall we do?” 11 And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics2 is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.” 12 Tax collectors also came to be baptized and said to him, “Teacher, what shall we do?” 13 And he said to them, “Collect no more than you are authorized to do.” 14 Soldiers also asked him, “And we, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Do not extort money from anyone by threats or by false accusation, and be content with your wages.” 15 As the people were in expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Christ, 16 John answered them all, saying, “I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 17 His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.” 18 So with many other exhortations he preached good news to the people. 19 But Herod the tetrarch, who had been reproved by him for Herodias, his brother's wife, and for all the evil things that Herod had done, 20 added this to them all, that he locked up John in prison. 21 Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heavens were opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form, like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son;3 with you I am well pleased.”4 The Genealogy of Jesus Christ 23 Jesus, when he began his ministry, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli, 24 the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Jannai, the son of Joseph, 25 the son of Mattathias, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum, the son of Esli, the son of Naggai, 26 the son of Maath, the son of Mattathias, the son of Semein, the son of Josech, the son of Joda, 27 the son of Joanan, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel,5 the son of Neri, 28 the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elmadam, the son of Er, 29 the son of Joshua, the son of Eliezer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, 30 the son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonam, the son of Eliakim, 31 the son of Melea, the son of Menna, the son of Mattatha, the son of Nathan, the son of David, 32 the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Boaz, the son of Sala, the son of Nahshon, 33 the son of Amminadab, the son of Admin, the son of Arni, the son of Hezron, the son of Perez, the son of Judah, 34 the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor, 35 the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah, 36 the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech, 37 the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalaleel, the son of Cainan, 38 the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.

Or what provokes you that you answer?4 I also could speak as you do, if you were in my place; I could join words together against you and shake my head at you.5 I could strengthen you with my mouth, and the solace of my lips would assuage your pain. 6 “If I speak, my pain is not assuaged, and if I forbear, how much of it leaves me?7 Surely now God has worn me out; he has1 made desolate all my company.8 And he has shriveled me up, which is a witness against me, and my leanness has risen up against me; it testifies to my face.9 He has torn me in his wrath and hated me; he has gnashed his teeth at me; my adversary sharpens his eyes against me.10 Men have gaped at me with their mouth; they have struck me insolently on the cheek; they mass themselves together against me.11 God gives me up to the ungodly and casts me into the hands of the wicked.12 I was at ease, and he broke me apart; he seized me by the neck and dashed me to pieces; he set me up as his target;13 his archers surround me. He slashes open my kidneys and does not spare; he pours out my gall on the ground.14 He breaks me with breach upon breach; he runs upon me like a warrior.15 I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin and have laid my strength in the dust.16 My face is red with weeping, and on my eyelids is deep darkness,17 although there is no violence in my hands, and my prayer is pure. 18 “O earth, cover not my blood, and let my cry find no resting place.19 Even now, behold, my witness is in heaven, and he who testifies for me is on high.20 My friends scorn me; my eye pours out tears to God,21 that he would argue the case of a man with God, as2 a son of man does with his neighbor.22 For when a few years have come I shall go the way from which I shall not return. Job Continues: Where Then Is My Hope? 17 “My spirit is broken; my days are extinct; the graveyard is ready for me.2 Surely there are mockers about me, and my eye dwells on their provocation. 3 “Lay down a pledge for me with you; who is there who will put up security for me?4 Since you have closed their hearts to understanding, therefore you will not let them triumph.5 He who informs against his friends to get a share of their property— the eyes of his children will fail. 6 “He has made me a byword of the peoples, and I am one before whom men spit.7 My eye has grown dim from vexation, and all my members are like a shadow.8 The upright are appalled at this, and the innocent stirs himself up against the godless.9 Yet the righteous holds to his way, and he who has clean hands grows stronger and stronger.10 But you, come on again, all of you, and I shall not find a wise man among you.11 My days are past; my plans are broken off, the desires of my heart.12 They make night into day: ‘The light,' they say, ‘is near to the darkness.'313 If I hope for Sheol as my house, if I make my bed in darkness,14 if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,' and to the worm, ‘My mother,' or ‘My sister,'15 where then is my hope? Who will see my hope?16 Will it go down to the bars of Sheol? Shall we descend together into the dust?”4 Footnotes  16:7 Hebrew you have; also verse 8  16:21 Hebrew and  17:12 The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain  17:16 Or Will they go down to the bars of Sheol? Is rest to be found together in the dust? (ESV) 1 Corinthians 4 (Listen) The Ministry of Apostles 4 This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful. 3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself. 4 For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me. 5 Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God. 6 I have applied all these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, brothers,1 that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up in favor of one against another. 7 For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it? 8 Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich! Without us you have become kings! And would that you did reign, so that we might share the rule with you! 9 For I think that God has exhibited us apostles as last of all, like men sentenced to death, because we have become a spectacle to the world, to angels, and to men. 10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honor, but we in disrepute. 11 To the present hour we hunger and thirst, we are poorly dressed and buffeted and homeless, 12 and we labor, working with our own hands. When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; 13 when slandered, we entreat. We have become, and are still, like the scum of the world, the refuse of all things. 14 I do not write these things to make you ashamed, but to admonish you as my beloved children. 15 For though you have countless2 guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel. 16 I urge you, then, be imitators of me. 17 That is why I sent3 you Timothy, my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, to remind you of my ways in Christ,4 as I teach them everywhere in every church. 18 Some are arrogant, as though I were not coming to you. 19 But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I will find out not the talk of these arrogant people but their power. 20 For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power. 21 What do you wish? Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?
