Sometimes, the best thing anyone can do for themselves is to sit still and do nothing. HO HO HO! We can smell ‘em keyboard warriors rearing to smack us with some self-righteous ideals from miles away! There's bound to be someone who'll read this and say, “that's just lazy!” Or maybe something along the lines of, “not everyone's a privileged schmuck who can afford to bum around…”. We can't blame them because in the context of the recent/on-going pandemic, where a lot of people lost their livelihood, telling someone to “sit still” just seems so inconsiderate, maybe even offensive. And so, we're obliged to extend the context… When was the last time you made time for yourself? When was the last time you considered the state of your HEALTH above things like work and responsibilities? A heck load of people have become so addicted to being BUSY to the point where they've NEGLECTED the truly important things like health and family. And for what? There's this mentality that success equates to hustling and grinding, overcommitting and overextending oneself, else, running themselves to the ground. Like that's the only way to provide for their families, meet the demands of daily life, and maybe one day, earn the right to “live the dream”. But what if there was another way? A way that promotes productivity instead of being busy. A way that puts more weight on progress rather than the motions. A way where you get to REALLY LIVE! Maybe it's time to consider sitting down to think of how you can dent your goals, and doing nothing that antagonizes your health (more), instead of aimlessly hammering at things that don't really matter! Ain't that an interesting proposal? Let's talk about it! Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about creating a work-life balance that promotes good health, and focusing on productivity rather than being busy. ------------ I am speaking at Keto Con happening in July in Austin Texas.

Fight-or-flight response is an evolutionary survival mechanism that's wreaking havoc in our lives today, and most of us don't even realize it! It is a primitive reaction that triggers the release of hormones and other chemicals in the body to help us respond to a perceived threat, whether real or imagined. Basically, it's genetic instructions that tell us to run when we can and fight only as a last resort. What's troubling is that this crude mechanism, though still applicable in today's settings, is causing us more harm than good. Because we're not meant to simply survive...we all NEED to THRIVE! Here's where it gets tricky: it seems like most of us will keep running away from living a healthy lifestyle until they no longer can, at which point, “fighting” is no longer an option. Why run from healthy living? It's because most of us have grown accustomed and comfortable with eating junk food, drinking alcohol, and getting little to no sleep – to the point where real food, water and sleep have become “threatening” to a “way of life”. Here's some news to get things into perspective… Not getting your dose of sugary treats or your buzz from booze or missing an episode of your fave sitcom aren't threats… Poor health and obesity are the REAL THREATS! And we keep running towards ‘em every darn time! This has GOT TO CHANGE! And part of that change is creating a mindset where the fight-or-flight response serves our purpose (and not the other way around). Today, let's talk about harnessing this powerful mechanism, learning to stand and fight, and moving from a state of survival to a state where we all can thrive! Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about creating a mindset that unconditionally fights for the healthy life we deserve! ------------ I am speaking at Keto Con happening in July in Austin Texas.

In the grander scheme of things, we're all uniquely gifted to serve a purpose – the best way we can positively impact others! Basically, everything on earth (even the most mundane of things, like a rock or a shrub) was made to serve a purpose. We are no exception to this! Some are called to become world-class performers and entertainers, teachers and coaches, or entrepreneurs and inventors. For others, it's simpler (but NOT less important) like being a parent, a son or daughter, or a friend. Each of our unique purposes are meant to contribute to a higher purpose: for all life to thrive and prosper! In finding that purpose, you stand to gain the LIFE YOU TRULY DESIRE! In CodeRed, we're fortunate enough to be able to serve our communities as teachers who educate others about living a healthy lifestyle, and as warriors fighting against the plague that is obesity (and all diseases it entails). Full disclosure!!! None of us here knew exactly, from the very beginning, what our TRUE PURPOSE was. We had to discover, learn, forget and relearn the things that make CodeRed a successful and worthwhile way of living. In fact, we're still looking for ways (Big AND Small) to improve the healthy lifestyle that we know and love today, so that we can continue serving our communities better, faster, stronger! This is what it means to design and create our legacy, our way of denting the world! This is how we get to enjoy happy and fulfilled lives! What about you? What've you been up to lately? How have you been making progress towards being a blessing to others? Let's talk about the things you can do to live the healthy, bountiful and purposeful life of your own design! Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about proactively designing and creating your own legacy. ------------ I am speaking at Keto Con happening in July in Austin Texas. Please come join me.

A relatively straightforward Saturday puzzle, at least compared to the Mt. Everest level-of-difficulty of last week. It was by no means easy, but clues like 1D, They might smell fishy, CATTREATS, and 33D, It goes hand to hand, CLAP, were balanced by clues like 8D, Beat, TIRED, and 40A, Peter Pan alternative, JIF.

Age old question: “If practice makes perfect and yet no one can be perfect, why practice?” We've found that even a seemingly ridiculous and sarcastic question can bring the most powerful of lesson! From big groups like political administrations, business leadership and school councils, down to us individuals, we're all prone to making wrong choices. Wars have broken out, civilizations crumbled, lives lost, and yet here we are, humans who keep on going! Because NEWS FLASH!!! Wrong choices DON'T have to be the last ones anyone makes! Understand that “perfection” isn't what's being asked of us… We're asked to do our best, give our all, and keep going, for a BETTER FUTURE. And often, the “Best” is fruit of doing the NEXT RIGHT THING! This applies to many aspects of our lives, including Health and Weight Loss! Like children rebuilding sandcastles lost to the waves, we're asked to take back our lives with creativity, willingness, eagerness, and with a big smile. What's done is done. Wrong choices have been made. You already set yourself back from the life you want. You're already suffering from obesity and the diseases it entails. But it's not the end… It's the beginning of a COMEBACK! Gained 5 pounds last week? Get on that scale and start losing the weight TODAY. Filled up on sugar earlier today? Let's start taking out the trash (we mean those sugary treats) NOW. So now, we've already taken your time…What will you DO NEXT? How about listening to MORE WAYS you can pick yourself up and be on your way again towards the healthy body you deserve to have! Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about working towards a better body and a better future by doing the next right thing! ------ Lose up to 10 pounds and detox naturally and safely, without powders, pills, juicing, or eating like a rabbit. https://reset.coderedlifestyle.com/7-day-reset ------------ I am speaking at Keto Con happening in July in Austin Texas.

Microsoft Windows 2000 was the successor to Windows NT 4.0, which had been released in 1997. Windows 2000 didn't have a code name (supposedly because Jim Allchin didn't like codenames), although its service packs did; Service Pack 1 and Windows 2000 64-bit were codenamed "Asteroid" and "Janus," respectively. 2000 began as NT 5.0 but Microsoft announced the name change in 1998, in a signal with when customer might expect the OS. Some of the enhancements were just to match the look and feel of the consumer Windows 98 counterpart. For example, the logo in the boot screens was cleaned up and they added new icons. Some found Windows 2000 to be more reliable, others claimed it didn't have enough new features. But what it might have lacked in features from a cursory glance, Windows 2000 made up for in stability, scalability, and reliability. This time around, Microsoft had input from some of their larger partners. They released the operating system to partners in 1999, after releasing three release candidates or developer previews earlier that year. They needed to, if only so third parties could understand what items needed to be sold to customers. There were enough editions now, that it wasn't uncommon for resellers to have to call the licensing desk at a distributor (similar to a wholesaler for packaged goods) in order to figure out what line items the reseller needed to put on a bid, or estimate. Reporters hailed it as the most stable product ever produced by Microsoft. It was also the most secure version. 2000 brought Group Policies forward from NT and enhanced what could be controlled from a central system. The old single line domain concept for managing domains was enhanced to become what Microsoft called Active Directory, a modern directory service that located resources in a database and allowed for finely grained controls of those resources. Windows 2000 also introduced NTFS 3, an Encrypted File System that was built on top of layers of APIs, each with their own controls. Still, Windows 98 was the most popular operating system in the world by then and it was harder to move people to it than initially expected. Microsoft released Windows 98 Second Edition in 1999 and then Windows Millennium Edition, or Me, in 2000. Millennium was a flop and helped move more people into 2000, even though 2000 was marketed as a business or enterprise operating system. Windows 2000 Professional was the workstation workhorse. Active Directory and other server services ran on Windows 2000 Server Edition. They also released Advanced Server and Datacenter Server for even more advanced environments, with Datacenter able to support up to 32 CPUs. Professional borrowed many features from both NT and 98 Second Edition, including the Outlook Express email client, expanded file system support, WebDAV support, Windows Media Player, WDM (Windows Driver Model), the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) for making it easier to manage those GPOs, support for new mass storage devices like Firewire, hibernation and passwords to wake up from hibernation, the System File Checker, new debugging options, better event logs, Windows Desktop Update (which gave us “Patch Tuesday”), a new Windows Installer, Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), Plug and Play hardware (installing new hardware in Windows NT was a bit more like doing so in Unix than Windows 95), and all the transitions and animations of the Windows shell like an Explorer integrated with Internet Explorer. Some of these features were abused. We got Code Red, Nimbda, and other malware that became high profile attacks against vulnerable binaries. These were unprecedented in terms of how quickly a flaw in the code could get abused en masse. Hundreds of thousands of computers could be infected in a matter of days with a well crafted exploit. Even some of the server services were exploited such as the IIS, or Internet Information Services server. Microsoft responded with security bulletins but buffer overflows and other vulnerabilities allows mass infections. So much so that the US and other governments got involved. This wasn't made any easier by the fact that the source code for parts of 2000 was leaked on the Internet and had been used to help find new exploits. Yet Windows 2000 was still the most secure operating system Microsoft had put out. Imagine how many viruses and exploits would have appeared on all those computers if it hadn't of been. And within Microsoft, Windows 2000 was a critical step toward mass adoption of the far more stable, technically sophisticated Windows NT platform. It demonstrated that a technologically powerful Windows operating system could also have a user-friendly interface and multimedia capabilities.

People may not respond to one truth but may respond to another. Put a frog in a steel pot with cool water and it's going to stay there, almost still. Place the pot over the stove and turn up the heat. Seeing the frog's predicament, you know it's going to need your help, but that frog's not going to try to get itself out until the water heats up to an uncomfortable temperature. Isn't that how it is with most people? We can see they're in dire need of losing excess weight, but until they start feeling the need to help themselves, they're not going to want help. No matter what you say, even the truth about obesity, if people choose not to hear you out, there's just no convincing them! We're not asking you to give up on your loved ones, rather, we're asking you to acknowledge that there are other truths that may garner positive responses… Like the truth about needing time and space to figure things out for themselves. Or the truth that there's someone else better suited to help them. And so, we offer them these! In the meantime, we keep sowing seeds of truth that we pray will grow into realizations, until they blossom into actions toward taking their lives back! While you're at it, why don't you expand your garden and sow more seeds in other places, in other people. They're not all going to blossom all at the same time, so focus your efforts on buds that have opened up and are now willing to accept your help, so that they can start towards the healthy life they ought to have! Some of you have taken your sweet time but… Are you finally ready to take your life back? Let's talk about it and get you that healthy body you deserve!

Nobody losses fat by reading books... Or watching videos on weight loss. Or going to weight loss conventions. People lose weight by taking action! We're not about to downplay the part that knowledge plays in weight loss. Getting to goal weight means taking the RIGHT kinds of actions, and knowledge will TELL you what those are. Nope, going to the gym and sweating it out non-stop IS NOT the right action (at least not for weight loss). You can be physically active and still be overweight at the same time! What you need: REAL Food, Water AND Sleep! "HAHA! Joke's on you, I know that!" - but do you? “Yes, I've been listening/watching/reading all the free information that CodeRed has to offer! I have everything I need to lose weight!” – and so, why haven't you? It's hard to tell because even with all that knowledge, you seem to still be lugging around excess weight that we should've gotten off of you months/seasons/years ago... Or maybe you already lost the weight, yet here we are. It doesn't matter what you know...what matters is What You DO! And this idea applies to many different aspects of your life! Whether you want to get to goal weight, learn how to swim, get a degree, find a job, among other endeavors, you want to be where rubber meets the road! Having the knowledge IS important! But it will only get you so far. Who or what you know might land you your first job, but in future cases, companies will ask for your experience. They'll ask not just what you know, but what you did! Everyone envisions themselves having taken their lives back. Knowledge is the map and taking action will get you to the healthy life you deserve. Now, you know what you have to do…so let's start DOING! Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about putting your knowledge to practice, doing what needs to be done to take your life back! ------------ I am speaking at Keto Con happening in July in Austin Texas.

The newest climate report from the IPCC is, once again, issuing a Code Red for life on the planet and calling for the world to immediately halt the burning of fossil fuels to avoid climate collapse.

By Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Radio Network.
Finding a way around the difficulty of the first round is futile… BUT getting started and moving towards the healthy body you deserve is not! The first round will ALWAYS be hard BUT it gets EASIER! It's always the same, whether in boxing, in learning how to ride a bike or drive a car, in getting acquainted with your office's culture, even in meeting new people and building relationships, and most especially in weight loss. The difficulty is not for lack of experience. None of us were born knowing what we know now. Before any of us could run, we all had to (literally) take baby steps. Taking those first steps…was it difficult? Of course! Our bones and muscles had to form and support our weight. Our motor skills had to develop. Our bodies needed to find our balance. It was probably difficult for our parents too, watching us fall down again and again. Yet here we are today, making our parents, family, and friends proud. Learning. Knowing. Doing. Succeeding. Rinsing and repeating. Weight loss shouldn't be anything different! Take those baby steps! Break down the goal into smaller chunks that you can tackle one at a time. Get started by clearing sugar out of your home. Get acquainted with REAL food. Ease your way into drinking lots of water. Find comfort in getting enough sleep. Before you know it, you'll be racing towards learning more about the healthy lifestyle you should be living. Find a rhythm. Build momentum. Form habits. That's the way to go if you want to shed the weight and achieve the healthy body you deserve! What do you think is holding you back from putting one foot in front of the other? Let's talk about it! Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about taking control of your nerves, finding the courage to make the first move, and beating obesity one step at a time. ------------ I am speaking at Keto Con happening in July in Austin Texas.

As part of the March 25th global climate strike by Fridays For Future, activists gathered at the state capitol in Albany to demand a halt to fossil fuels and a rapid transition to 100% clean energy. Here we hear from Mark Dunlea of PAUSE, GELF and EcoAction of Green Party of US discuss the Code Red for the Planet and the need for a Green New Deal that embraces system change not climate change.
The head of the International Energy Agency (IEA) has called for an expansion of the organisation's mandate and membership to enable it to support the global transition to a “clean and secure” energy future and to ensure that the world's climate goals do not become “another victim of Russia's aggression”. Addressing a gathering of energy Ministers in Paris against the backdrop of ongoing market turmoil precipitated by Russia's invasion of Ukraine, IEA executive director Fatih Birol said the organisation needed to adapt to a fast-changing energy environment. Set up in 1974 to provide an oil security umbrella to a narrow base of developed countries (a role reinforced recently when IEA members released an initial 63-million barrels of oil stocks to alleviate the tightness in oil markets that followed Russia's incursion into Ukraine), the IEA partially opened its doors in 2015 to eight emerging economies, including South Africa, which were now associate members. “I now hope we can launch ‘IEA 3.0', that is an IEA oriented in the right direction to help address both energy security and tackle climate change,” Birol said. The IEA would require an expanded mandate to do so, including allowing it to play a role in ensuring a reliable and sustainable supply of the critical minerals needed for the transition to renewables-based systems, including lithium, cobalt, copper, nickel and rare-earth elements. Speaking from the same platform US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said it was vital that the world did not trade one energy supply chain vulnerability for another. “I'm talking about minerals and critical materials that are powering so many of our clean energy technologies. “We have to source these materials responsibly; we have to process them sustainably and we have to minimise the carbon footprint from manufacturing these at the scale needed to meet the demand,” Granholm argued. In addition, Birol said the IEA should be empowered to support the accelerated energy investments required to place carbon emissions “in rapid decline this decade” by allowing the agency to bring all of its “expertise and tools to bear to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and methane”, including by making its data freely available to energy decision-makers. Thirdly, he said the IEA needed to facilitate deeper relationships among its current 31 members and grow the “IEA family further”. In 2015, China, Brazil, India, South Africa, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Morocco were made association countries and Argentina and Egypt are set to join soon. Birol cautioned, however, that as governments moved to ensure that they kept the lights on in the current difficult energy environment, they could also not “turn off” their efforts to tackle climate change. “I am very worried that our climate goals may be another victim of Russia's aggression,” he said, noting the published figures showed a worrying increase in global emissions, which climbed at their fastest pace in history last year. Highlighting the dramatic changes that had already arisen as a result of Russia's military action, Birol revealed that the focus of the Ministerial gathering was meant to have been on progress made at the COP26 climate negotiations in Glasgow, Scotland, at the end of 2021. “But Russia's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine has changed the world, including the energy world, and it has given energy policymakers an even more complicated range of challenges to confront,” he said, while also suggesting that Russia was set to lose its status as an energy superpower. Granholm argued, meanwhile, that the energy transition could represent “our version of the Marshall Plan for clean and secure energy in 2022 and beyond”. “Even as we seek to stabilise fossil energy . . . we have to act upon the urgent signals that the world is sending us, that Mother Nature is sending us, a big flashing ‘Code Red' on humanity, as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has said.” Quoting Ireland's Environmen...
Achieving good health starts with creating space where there was none before. We're talking about understanding that our reality involves Mutually Exclusive Events – things that cannot coexist at the same TIME and SPACE! For example…you can't be running and walking at the same time. You can't be turning left and right, or moving forward and backwards at the same time. People can argue that it's a matter of perspective. But from your viewpoint – the perspective that matters most in YOUR life – which direction are you headed and how fast are you going? There're tons of mutually exclusive events in our lives, an important one being: you CAN'T be unhealthy AND healthy at the same time! For one to exist, the other has GOT to GO! Simply put… When it comes to health and weight loss, we have to let go of some things – food, clothes, habits, and even people – in order to accommodate the “NEW YOU” that you desire. You want… To lose weight? Say goodbye to old eating habits that got you fat. A healthy body? Bid farewell to sugar, junk/processed foods, alcohol, and other toxic substances. To focus on the future? Get rid of your “FAT Pants” that keep dragging you towards the past. A more positive outlook on life? Hasta la vista to negative self-talk and people who keep pulling you down. Instead… Say hello to good eating habits, real food, water and sleep, a better tomorrow, and confidence that resonates with like-minded people! Set yourself up for success! It all comes down to making the tough choices. Don't be afraid to rid yourself of what society says you “need”. Keep only what makes you truly happy and those that serve your purpose: Achieving the healthy life that you deserve! Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about examining and then cleaning up your surroundings to make room for the NEW and Healthier YOU! ------------ I am speaking at Keto Con happening in July in Austin Texas.

In our second episode about Extinction Rebellion we talk to Johnny, who's an active member here in the Hague. We ask him how civil disobedience leads to change, why XR demands net zero by 2025 and how a citizen's assembly works. Disclaimer: Towards the end of the episode, Johnny mentions that the news story about the man that was not able to get to his dying parent because of an XR roadblock was staged. He told us that he knows this from a safe source. We recorded the episode two weeks before the release and Johnny has since tried to get in contact with the people involved in Bristol. We do not have confirmation yet but will update this description as soon as we do. Here's a newspaper article on the topic: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7260773/Bristol-man-unable-father-died-Extinction-Rebellion-protest-traffic.html
This book tells the history of one of America's most popular soft drinks, Mountain Dew. The 300 page book brings you from the drink's earliest beginnings in 1946 all the way through to today's newer drinks like Mountain Dew LiveWire and Code Red. Learn about the Hatfield/McCoy feud that has been brewing for years over the bragging rights to Mountain Dew. This book gives you detailed information on who invented Mountain Dew, when they did it, and the progress of the drink through the years. We start you in Johnson City, TN where you meet Charlie Gordon, Jim Archer and Bill Kilber of "Charlie, Jim and Bill" fame. Did you know that Mountain Dew started out tasting like 7Up until Bill Bridgforth changed the taste to the flavor we know today? From Tennessee we head to Marion, VA to meet Billy Jones and learn about the Tip Corporation. Then on to Lumberton, NC where you meet the massive Minges clan that still controls Pepsi in North Carolina. And then back to Knoxville on a hillbilly roller coaster ride of who did what and when. Learn about the arm wrestling match (literally) with Pepsi Corporate for fifteen million dollars to win the rights to Mountain Dew. Learn why 900 bottles have different names and how Willy the Hillbilly got his name AND you will even get to meet the real live Willy. This book and historic pictures will definitely tickle yore innards!HOST: Rob MellonFEATURED BREW: Hard Mountain Dew, PepsiCo and The Boston Beer CompanyBOOK: Mountain Dew: The Historyhttps://www.amazon.com/Mountain-Dew-History-Dick-Bridgforth/dp/141966087X/ref=sr_1_2?crid=C1YQY28JICAQ&keywords=mountain+dew+dick+bridgforth&qid=1647834008&sprefix=mountain+dew+dick+bridgforth%2Caps%2C106&sr=8-2MUSIC: Bones Forkhttps://bonesfork.com/
Normal is NOT always what SHOULD BE. The idea of being normal is one that has been deeply ingrained in our minds. We have been conditioned to believe that there is a right way and a wrong way to do things. But what is normal? How do we define it? Is it what the majority of people think, or a set of rules which society has dictated over time? “Boys will be boys.” “Nice girls don't.” “Girls take care of their weight because they need to be attractive.” “Boys can be fat and still get a girl.” Should girls really work on their weight for aesthetics? Is it okay for boys to be fat? Shouldn't the point of taking care of one's body, regardless of sex or gender, be for health? We've got to think about these things… Just because something's normal in the eyes of many, doesn't mean it's RIGHT thing to do. This is especially true when it comes to health and wellness! Shouldn't we all encourage healthy behaviors instead of shunning those who are trying to improve themselves in whatever way possible? Doesn't it make more sense to give people the right information instead of discouraging them with our words or actions? Isn't it important to correct misinformation instead of blindly following ineffective/harmful trends that have been going around the industry since ages? More importantly, when someone else is right, isn't it only logical that WE are the ones to CHANGE our ways instead of asking them to conform? We're not in the habit of arguing because we want to be right. When it comes down to it, we argue because we know what's right and we want others to know what we do, and to do the things that will get them to the healthy body they deserve to have. Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about putting the needs of your body above the need to follow the norm, and doing the things that benefit a long, happy, and healthy life. --------------- Have you seen our new app?

Biden, Putin and the Ayatollah of Iran are in cahoots. In an egregious overstep, Biden is planning on giving the largest state sponsor of terror a nuclear weapon. This nuclear Iran Deal is illegitimate and illegal, and it rests completely on Russia's leader, Vladimir Putin as a good-faith negotiator, following his ruthless invasion of Ukraine.

In the very first episode of our three part series on Extinction Rebellion we are focusing on the people. Who are the activists that join the movement? Why did they join it and what do they hope to achieve? Lars and Anne interviewed three different activists and asked them about their experience.

In pursuit of weight loss, where the rubber meets the road is in the kitchen, and the dining table, and the buffet line. It's in food choices and health habits that you either win or lose. And in order to make the right choices, there's a need to KNOW and Understand. That's why we're here to put a stop to the “What you don't know won't hurt” mentality. Because what you don't know CAN and WILL hurt your body! Nutritional Values, Metabolic Markers, Chemical Reactions in the body, and consequences of making poor choices are just some of the things we highly consider when creating weight loss programs. But that's not the End-All-Be-All… Code Red is a LIFESTYLE! Knowledge requires action. We're about putting science and information to practice! Knowing the caloric content of burgers and burritos don't get you to goal weight…choosing to EAT real food, DRINK lots of water, and get enough SLEEP, does! However, we understand that in our journey to goal weight, things can be easier said than done, especially when a certain lifestyle doesn't agree with your “inner being”. Each of us are unique and there's really not just a single route to good health. And so, we're also here to support you by creating custom fit programs for you! Ultimately, what we desire for each person is that they THRIVE and NOT just SURVIVE. The mind is a powerful force, but without action, there's no tangible progress. Weight loss may begin with learning ideas, theories, and strategies, but it's in practicing what we know that we achieve what we deserve: A Beautiful and Healthy Life. Where do I start? What else do I need to know about weight loss? What are my other options? You mentioned 5 Metabolic markers? Let's talk about getting you up to speed on crucial info on health and lifestyle and launch you towards a direction of BETTER! --------------- Have you seen our new app?

The Past is for learning the things we can do differently at Present so that we can create a Future worth looking forward to. If you're like most people, there are probably a few things you'd change if you could go back in time and be healthier. But how many of those things have you actually changed? Maybe none? That's because today is the only day that matters when it comes to your health. The fact is that tomorrow may never come. Today is the only day we can change our lives, and the first step starts with understanding the values you can learn from yesterday. What got you fat? What triggered your hypertension? What led to your type 2 diabetes? More Importantly, what can you do differently NOW, in order to get to the future you WANT to enjoy? Forgive us for assuming but…a lot of you might be saying, “I know what I need to do”. In truth, you might have known for a while now, the things you SHOULD DO, so what's the hold up? Are you still lacking critical information you need to come up with a healthy diet? You're unsure of what REAL food are? Or maybe you just haven't bought into the whole “Future Starts Today” mindset? Regardless of your health and weight loss concerns, let's talk about them and figure out what you need to achieve the healthy body that you're looking for! While not everything about weight loss is easy, and there will always be obstacles we'll face in pursuit of a healthier life, with our help, there's no reason YOU can't start TODAY! Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about making better choices by having a “Prevention Mindset”, and starting today the changes you want to see tomorrow. --------------- Have you seen our new app?

There is a strong underlying idea that we can't be happy until we accomplish something. It might be a degree, a new job, a better body or the perfect relationship. And it's not only tangible achievements like these. We also have the idea that we must reach certain levels of mental and spiritual attainment before we can be happy. The problem with this viewpoint is that it keeps us stuck in the same cycle of “I'll be happy when…” We keep putting off our happiness for another day — for when we get that thing — and in the meantime, we become frustrated, stressed and unfulfilled. This mentality keeps us from doing the things we want to do for fear of not doing them perfectly or achieving them perfectly or being ready for them. And at the same time, those who do achieve their goals often find themselves still feeling empty inside because they never stopped to ask themselves what they wanted out of life beyond just achieving these goals. How many times have you delayed getting to goal weight? Once you do achieve goal weight, what of it? What does reaching your goals mean to you? In this episode, we want to shine the light on YOU! It's YOU who can define what you truly want. It's YOU who needs to appreciate the ups and downs in your journey to good health. It's YOU who can decide what you'll make of the experiences along the way, and the benefits of reaching goal weight. This is why I believe that happiness comes from within and not from any external factors. This is why we believe that taking responsibility for your own happiness is vital for enjoying the results of your hard work towards the healthy life you deserve. Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about appreciating the weight loss journey, preparing your mind and body to transition from one goal to another, and ultimately taking responsibility for your own happiness. --------------- Have you seen our new app?

The moment you come out of your mother's womb you're placed on a road… In your earlier years where you couldn't come up with sound decisions of your own, it was the environment you were in and the people around you who influenced the actions you took. It was your parents, your siblings, maybe your aunts and uncles who taught you which direction to take along the road you're on. Now that you can make sound decisions on your own, we want to ask you this… Are you headed towards the direction of good health? Having been raised in a household where real food was the staple, are you keeping true to the direction of good health? And if you lived in a home where junk food and vices were the norm, are you now steering clear of those and travelling towards a healthy lifestyle? Unclear of your bearing, maybe you decide to just “stay in the middle” or “get off the road”. The thing to note is that you're not on a freeway where you can simply choose to exit or to wait it out on the curb. Every action you take is either pushing you towards or away from good health. No matter your beliefs about health, that road is going nowhere. You'll always be on it so long as you live and breathe. That's why it's always in your best interest to figure out which direction you want to take. “But where do I begin? How do I know where I'm headed?” “I THINK I'm doing okay eating small amounts of pizza and churros. But am I okay?!” Let's talk about the actions you can take, and the benefits of heading towards a healthy lifestyle! Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about examining your actions, choosing a direction, and moving along the road away towards good health. --------------- Have you seen our new app?

Others might call me boss, coach or mentor. Today you can call me The Leadership Hacker. Thanks for listening in. I really appreciate it. My job as the leadership hacker is to hack into the minds, experiences, habits and learning of great leaders, C-Suite executives, authors and development experts so that I can assist you developing your understanding and awareness of leadership. I am Steve Rush and I am your host today. I am the author of Leadership Cake. I am a transformation consultant and leadership coach. I cannot wait to start sharing all things leadership with you And a special guest on today's show is Crystal Robinson. She's an American basketball coach and former Women's NBA, All-Star. And she was the first black woman to be inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. Now, after chronicling her life's lessons in her book, Finding Myself, she's now an ambassador for the LGBTQ Community, but before we get a chance to meet with Crystal, it's The Leadership Hacker News. The Leadership Hacker News Steve Rush: In the news today, we explore how diversity and inclusion has evolved and diversity education started in the sixties, so it's nothing new to us. And over time we would have all become aware of how it's evolved to take into consideration inclusion. And while many think that diversity and inclusion are the same thing, they're not. Diversity is the act of creating community, comprised of people with varying backgrounds, creeds, ages, differences, and inclusion is finding a way of making sure that all of those people feel really valued in what they do and how they behave. Wait, where did equity come from? Well, it's always been there. In recent years, diversity and inclusion issues have been bolstered by the addition of the concept of equity and unlike equality, which focused on providing equal resources, regardless of context. Equity actually focuses on the process of just being fair. Equality is treating everyone the same. Whereas equity is about achieving the same benefits, even if it means that everyone receives different, there's still fair and justified treatment and experiences. Regular listeners will know that we love the difference that makes the difference. And that's because all humans are different. We all have components of our identities that are both seen like race, gender, identity. And then there are hidden things like our mental health or disability or sexual orientation, and whether you're willing to admit it or not, we all come from different backgrounds and we hold multiple interconnecting identities and biases that show up in our relationships and our workplace. Research also shows that higher levels of diversity may lead to increase conflict and misunderstanding. And often because we struggled with accepting and celebrating our differences. Inclusion doesn't mean that we can just pretend those differences don't exist. It means that we can acknowledge those differences and take advantages of differences to create diverse, equitable, and inclusive communities that we work and live in. And therefore, we now arrived at our current incarnation, this essential tool that features equal and equitable attention on diversity, equity and inclusion. And as I reflect on this, a single piece of the puzzle missing could create an incomplete picture. Diversity is the heart of different voices in any conversation. Inclusion is uplifting, validating and hearing each and every voice and equity as a manner in which we amplify those voices. So, the leadership hack is dead simple. When you're thinking diversity and inclusion, think everyone everywhere, and do you have equity? Not equality. Making sure the right treatment for the right people, the right places at the right times means that we all get to benefit from diverse and inclusive behaviors and diverse and inclusive communities. That's been The Leadership Hacker News, I would love for you to share anything that's on the top of your agenda, so get in touch. Start of Podcast Steve Rush: Crystal Robinson is a special guest on today's show. She's a retired professional athlete and coach who's played the highest level of basketball in the Women's NBA. Today, she's a thought leader in the space of conscious leadership, mental health, and diversity. Crystal, welcome to The Leadership Hacker Podcast. Crystal Robinson: Thank you for having me. Steve Rush: So, let's just start by calling out a few of your kind of credits to your name. So former WNBA player and coach, named an all American by the WBCA, you earn a rookie of the year award and an ABL All-Star, you've been indicted into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame, indicted into the NAIA Hall of Fame, drafted overall sixth by the Women's NBA. Now author, coach, and ambassador for the LGBTQ community. Wow, that's not a bad backstory. Crystal Robinson: Yeah, I've had a pretty fun and exciting life. Steve Rush: Now, it hasn't been always that smooth sailing to be fair, has it? So, I know from the last time that we met, you grew up in rural Oklahoma. Having had a really kind of tough upbringing, having to navigate some poverty, a lot of racism issues, and then having to deal with and come to terms with your own sexual identity along that, on the journey, I guess. So just tell us a little bit about how early life really was for you. Crystal Robinson: Overall, I guess, at some point in life, you know, I was just a poor kid growing up happy, you know, you don't know you're poor until you learn you're poor, but lots of struggles, but I think everybody in life has struggles. I think in my book, I write about them, but that's really, for me not wasn't the focus of my life. I think I wrote about those struggles basically for people to understand that that are commonalities with all of us. We all have struggles, but just kind of how we end up dealing with them, determines where we end up in life. Steve Rush: Yeah, wise words, is often the case, isn't it? Crystal Robinson: Yeah. Steve Rush: You know, often, most people are faced with adversity of some kind, but it's a reaction to that adversity that makes the difference. And clearly, you know, you face into those really well because you ended up as a professional athlete. So, tell us a bit about the journey of how you ended up in baskets ball? Crystal Robinson: Both my parents were college basketball players. I was just something, they were both all Americans that I was an innate. I was born with a great ability and five years old; they gave me a basketball goal and I started playing on it and fell in love with it. Then the rest was kind of history after that. So, I just excelled, I played basketball all the time. Basketball became a place for me to take out my anger and anything that I wasn't feeling good about. It was a place for me to, you know, just release all of the negative feelings that any negative feelings that I had. Steve Rush: And having the foundations of using basketball if you like as a bit of a coping mechanism, most people will use some form of coping mechanism to deal with some adversity, but there is a different level of coping when you turn into being so good at it. You become recognized in your country as being the elite in your sport. Tell us a little bit about when that kind of pivotal moment happened for you when you became a pro basketball player? Crystal Robinson: It's so funny, you know, there was no professional women's basketball whenever I started playing basketball, you know, we were young girls. We didn't have the ability to look and say, hey, I wanted to be in the WNBA one day. So, you know, I just played all the time. I play with my guy cousins and overall goal was to be as good as my best cousin and things just kind of snowballed from there. Then I ended up being recruited by every college in the country. The town I grew up in, it's a population of about 400 people. It's called Stringtown, Oklahoma. So, you start having people from all over the United States coming to watch you play basketball and offering you scholarships. I'd say at that point, I thought I was pretty good and believe, but I don't think it wasn't until, you know, hindsight after your career, you kind of evaluate and see where your skillset fit in to your professional career. Steve Rush: Yeah, and you've told the story through your book, which is just an amazing read, called Finding Myself and tell us a little bit about how you decided to put your stories down into pages for others to read about? Crystal Robinson: I wanted it to be interesting, one, because, even though I've been a basketball player, I'm not Kevin Duran or Stephan Curry or no one with a big name like that, putting your story down for other people. It was about, you know, helping people, helping people see that. One thing, there's few things that we all have in common. Like it doesn't matter what color you are, what race you are or how rich you are, nothing matters. We're all going to encounter obstacles. Some of them make us stronger. Why does it make some of us stronger, and some of us not? You know, some of us suffer. So, I think that lots of people that are suffering feel alone, but just putting those stories out there that we all suffer at times. It's just about, you know, figuring it out. The perspective on how to navigate it. Steve Rush: Was there an element for you as well, as you wrote the book and you put all the stories down and into kind of words and stories, was there a little bit around another bit of therapy going on there for you at the time as well? Crystal Robinson: Honestly, it was all therapy going on there. Steve Rush: Yeah. Crystal Robinson: Honestly, to tell you the truth, I went to therapy and I was told to journal and I didn't set out and write a book like, oh, I'm going to write a book. I started journaling and just writing things that bother me, things that made me feel good, things that just, I don't know, things. And after seven or eight journals later, I felt better. And I sent and all of it to one of my friends that writes for the Amsterdam News in New York. And she said, this would be a really good book. You should organize it. So that's kind of how the book journey started. It wasn't that I just sat down to write a book. It just kind of happened. I probably have stories together and then put it in book form. Steve Rush: I would love to get into some of the stories if you are okay with that, because there were some really inspirational things that happen to you that we can all get some life lessons from. I remember the time that you talk about it in your book, when you were playing little league baseball, your dad turned up at a game to watch you, he was blind drunk. And despite that, you kind of played a brilliant game. What happened for you in that process and how did you use that as a positive? Crystal Robinson: I think in those moments, you don't ever feel like it's a positive, I think, but for me, I think that it taught me perseverance, you know, and at an early age, I had to figure out how to, you know, really just walk with my head, held high, even though everybody in the town knew that my dad was a big drunk. But my dad was a very functioning drunk. He worked, he went to work at times, you know? I think that taught me, first off, you know, the people who are going to care are going to care. At that point, I think I started to learn to not care about what other people thought, you know, some circumstances we were put under, we don't ask for them. We just have to learn how to deal with them and cope with them. Steve Rush: I would imagine that taught you a huge amount of resilience. Crystal Robinson: Yes. Steve Rush: Not just that occasion, but many occasions like it, I guess. Crystal Robinson: Definitely resilience. And I think that just in life, anybody who wants to make it, or just to be successful in life, it takes resilience. I'm sure when you started this podcast, it wasn't easy. You have to get people to come on, you know, you have to get all this things together, and I'm sure there's many, a times that you go through things you might want to quit, but you're resilient enough to know the benefits of it down the road, or you have a foresight to keep going. That's the best way to say. Steve Rush: Absolutely, yeah. And some of that kind of resilience, I guess, was also born about, through your experiences in high school. And I also remember reading in the book that when you were playing high school basketball, you came acquire a bit of, you know, racial slurs and verbal abuse. In that environment, you know, how do you deal with that when you're trying to focus on playing a game? Crystal Robinson: Oh, man. My stance on this has changed so much over the years, just recently in my hometown, I was racially profiled and pulled over, basically taking the jail for no reason until they realized who I was. Then they tried to let me go after like six hours of wasting my time. And I said, no, so they trumped up a charge. And it was just a lot, like, it just kind of changed my stance on just how I am. I think that the racial environment in the world right now has everybody on edge. And I think that I find myself having to go back to a lot of that stuff and a lot of the teachings and a lot of the way that I used to feel, just because of the place that the world is in now and the experiences that I've had. Steve Rush: That's really interesting. You you're most talking as if at one stage in your life or your career, you thought you'd got through that, but it seems to almost have another resurgence. Crystal Robinson: Well, I would say that, I would probably say that I didn't experience a lot of racism as a young kid. I did once or twice in my life, but I live in rural Oklahoma where there's no, we still bury people in black cemeteries and white cemetery. So, racism is definitely alive and well. Steve Rush: Wow. Crystal Robinson: You're really good at sports and you really good at things. You know how it is, people overlook that. And then at the back end of my career, you know, people change, times change and some young cops pull me over and don't know who I am and they just proceed to search, the car, I'll all this stuff because I have my dreads down. And then when the speaker of the house representatives and the judges are called in, like, what are you doing? And at this point I'm a voice. I'm a voice that can bring some attention to it. And it was just a lot, so my stance on that, I find myself, I won't say in prayer, but really having to check myself and think about that a lot more now, just because I feel the world is racially charged right now. Steve Rush: Yeah, it is. I sense that as well, right. And here I sit as a white caucasian guy who has had no racial issues to deal with per se, right? Yet, I still feel there is that racially charged tendencies. In fact, there is this terminology, isn't there? For people who are of my ethnicity called white fragility, where, you know, we're not having the conversation because we're almost afraid to. What's your spin on that? Crystal Robinson: For me, the people who are on that side, people like you, you shouldn't have to carry that burden, it's just like the Taliban. There's a certain amount of people with money that are racist, but everybody has to pay the price for that. Do you understand what I'm saying? Steve Rush: Absolutely. Crystal Robinson: Just like certain amount of my population that might be thugs. That might be certain things, but all of us have to pay the price for that. But those people are louder than people like you. Steve Rush: Yeah. Crystal Robinson: Heard more, and I think that when people stop having that fear and stop feeling guilty, you have nothing to feel guilty about, you know, but I think a lot of Caucasian people have a feeling of guilt and stand on the sidelines because I've had to really reconcile some of my friendships because I feel like some really powerful people stood on the sidelines and are standing on the sidelines that could expose this. And it would stop, but they have no interest in that because they're not boat rockers. They keep going the way it is, it doesn't matter that they hurt my career for no reason. Steve Rush: The whole kind of racial tension that exists today seems to be far louder than it ever has been. And I remember, so I grew up in the outskirts of London, very diverse community, lots of different ethnicities in my community. I didn't even know there was a racial issue until I probably hit high school, right. So, at what point do you think we're going to actually have a face into this and deal with it or do you think we could ever deal with it? Crystal Robinson: I think that there's a group of people that doesn't want it to change. It'll take a lot of bravery on a lot of people's parts for it to change. For some reason in society, there always has to be someone getting stepped on. I don't know why that is. I saw something on the news the other day, not the other day. I saw it maybe today scrolling through on Instagram. And I saw where Mexicans were showing up down there, given the Haitian people water and food, lots of things that they were providing for those people. And I was just thinking it's always the downtrodden that show up first because, no one's more, you know, trying to cross the border or get into the United States or do, you know, more than Mexican people. So, for them to be down there helping the Haitians, it was amazing to me. Steve Rush: Yeah, awesome. I think the more we can celebrate that and promote that, then the better it will be, right? Crystal Robinson: You're saying it so good. What you just said, what you said was basically, media publicizes the bad things. There's not enough said about things like. Steve Rush: That's very true. Crystal Robinson: They keep us at odds because that's what you see. And I shared that story simply because, you know, I said, it's not enough good things being shown in the world today. There are good things happening, so. Steve Rush: Hallelujah to that, yeah. So, as you were growing your career in basketball, and as you becoming more successful, not only had to deal with the racial slurs, but internally there's stuff going on for you, as you were trying to work out your own sexuality and having feelings for the same sex. Tell us a little bit about how you dealt with that kind of confusion and managed to come to terms with that and move forward in your life? Crystal Robinson: Very sloppily, to able to figure those things out. I knew I was different; I knew it wasn't accepted. I knew I lived in the Bible bell. I did go to church, and how are you supposed to be when everyone tells you your whole identity is something that you're going to hell for? I mean, you know, it was a lot at that time. That's all I could say. I didn't really have anybody to talk to. I just went with it. But at a certain point, I just, you know, I think that you get to the point to where either I have one life to live, I'm going to live at the best way I possibly can. And the people who want to be friends with me will be friends with me and the people who won't want. And that's just life in general. Steve Rush: Yeah. Crystal Robinson: I think that once you break it down to, you know, that simplicity of that, no one likes anybody a hundred percent of the time and no matter how good you are, some people are still not going to like you. Steve Rush: It got so bad for you at one state though, you were seriously thinking about taking your own life, right? Crystal Robinson: Oh, yeah. Steve Rush: That doesn't get any deeper than that, does it? Crystal Robinson: On more than one occasion, I felt like that, you know, but I won't say it's because of the way people treated me, it's because I just wanted to fit in. I didn't want it to be different. I didn't want this; I didn't ask for it. It's just who I was. Steve Rush: Yeah. Crystal Robinson: I was born this way. Steve Rush: And you still live-in rural Oklahoma. How have things changed for you? Are you more accepted by those same people? Have they become less bigoted and more educated? Tell us what that fell like for you now? Crystal Robinson: I wouldn't say that. Oklahoma is still about 25 years behind the rest of the world, you know, I have a group of people that are very educated. They travel, they do a lot of things and they don't have no problems with it, but there's always going to be a group of people who will have a problem with it, but won't say it out loud. They might talk behind their back and stuff like that, but I don't spend any energy worried about those people. Steve Rush: Good, and also you can see it and spot it, can't you? Because there'll be little micro behaviors and micro language you'd spot, perhaps because you've had more experience of it than some. And therefore, you can make those choices, right? Crystal Robinson: I think that for me, you know, being a professional athlete people that don't even like you, still will come up to you and ask you for an autograph, you know, that's just a kind of a part of the thing. I just kind of take it for what it's worth, you know? And I think that's one of the strengths that people should work on building is not really caring what other people think, you know, and living your life to the best of your ability for you. Steve Rush: That's really that easy to say though, right. But you've been in the public eye, you've been featured on TV. You've been, you know, press would have followed you. And that's got to take some toll when that's adverse commentary, right? Crystal Robinson: Yes, it's different. I tell you; I really took a completely different stance and approach as a pro athlete. I kind of immersed myself with the fans. They all knew who I was. They spent time with me. If they saw me, be like, oh, hey Crystal, I was around so much that they left me alone. I didn't put a barricade between me and them to set myself apart to where they wanted to be around me. If you understand what I'm saying. Steve Rush: Yeah, definitely, so, yeah. Crystal Robinson: I gave them access, like after games, I might stay two hours and sign everybody's autograph. And that way, when they see me with my family, it's just, hey Crystal and they keep going. You know, I think that that's one of the things that was just different about me. I love basketball. I love what I did. I was blessed to be able to do it, but that's just what it was. It was a great talent. It doesn't really change or sets me apart from people, on the fact that I had some really great experiences. Steve Rush: I love the way you've approached that, by the way, because many people in the public eye aren't accessible and actually become less accessible because of their publicity and their public figure. Whereas actually, I wonder if some of our pro sports people and actors and other people in the public eye, if they gave more of themselves to their fans and their public, whether or not they'd actually have much more of a peaceful life anyway. Crystal Robinson: Well, you know, that is true. I agree with that. But at some point, some of these fans are not normal, right? I mean, I had a teammate named Debbie Black, this man had a whole sex change and change his name to Debbie White and sat outside and he stopped her. Steve Rush: Oh dear. Crystal Robinson: There is some danger to it. Steve Rush: Sure. Crystal Robinson: Oh, and you know, when you get a certain level, like I'm not a star to that point to where people are wanting anything like that, other than the autograph. But, you know, for some people, it is definitely dangerous. As little as I am, I just was, you know, it was inducted into the New York Liberty Ring of Honor. And a media person made up a bunch of lies and tried hard to tell me they wanted me to be in a documentary and all this stuff. My publicists kept telling me this stuff, but she didn't have no credentials. So, a lot of the big things that she should have, so it just didn't make sense to me. And she was not legit. So, stuff like that definitely happen. Steve Rush: So, when I read your book, one of the things that struck me was there were, you know, paragraph after paragraph, there was real crappy experiences, lots of abusive relationships, lots of adversity, but on every occasion, you managed to find it in yourself to kind of lift above that and keep positive. Just for those listening to this who maybe are struggling to find themselves like you did. How did you manage to just keep that positivity? Crystal Robinson: I think it's probably sheer, what's the word I'm looking for? Just the fact that I don't ever like to give other people control over me. I can't be anybody's victim. So, I had to figure out a way to persevere and persevere in a way that I was still whole. I wouldn't say that I found myself. I think I'm still finding myself every day; we grow and we change, but, you know, I didn't want those experiences to control my life. And I think that when you get stuck in places, those experiences control your life. Steve Rush: Yeah, I love that. Was there a particular time though for you, as you were coming to terms with who you are today and the great work that you do now, where you thought, yeah, I'm happy, I'm content. I've found myself for now. When was that moment? Crystal Robinson: I would say I haven't. Steve Rush: Oh, great. Crystal Robinson: I definitely different. There're people who have the same jobs for 50 years. And I applaud them to be able to do that, but I'm not that kind of person. I'm the kind of person who I was great at sports. I mastered something in the business world, thought leadership world now, and I'm trying to master that. I'm pretty comfortable being uncomfortable. And for me, the experiences in life is not, I don't want to be at the same job for 30 years. I want to experience as much as I can. So, lots of people look at that and they say, oh, you're not settled, or you don't do this, or you don't do that. But you know for me, that's how I choose to experience life. Steve Rush: That's fabulous, and the reality is of course, for those people who are comfortable and aren't in control, probably aren't actually growing as much as those that are restless and are comfortable being uncomfortable. Crystal Robinson: I would really agree with that statement. I think that, you know, young ages at sports, I went away from my parents and stayed for long periods of time to be able to play basketball. And then I went to Europe, I played in Europe for eight years. I have had so many different kinds of experiences in so many different countries. And to me, that's what life's about. Like, I don't have no opinion about Italy. If I can't go there, I spent four years there. I live like the people, you know? And to me that's where I found value in life. Steve Rush: Yeah, can you knock up a great Italian pasta dish though? Crystal Robinson: Oh, I can make, pasta, actually my own tomato sauce. Steve Rush: Awesome. Crystal Robinson: So, I lived in Italy. I actually had a translator my first year. And then the second year I was there, I stayed in that country for four years. One of my teammates was going to college to learn English. So, I helped her with English. I had a Spanish background, so it just kind of came together. And then by the end of that year, I was completely fluent. So, I loved Italy and most countries that I did play in, I just really tried to understand their culture and at least learn enough words to be able to live like them. Steve Rush: Empathy is everything. So, you had a super pro career, then you coached pro basketball. So how much of that experience in your sporting life is now shaping your approach when you coach others? Crystal Robinson: Well, I think that leadership is leadership. Like as a player, I was a leader on the team and I think that as a coach, I have the opportunity, you know, we kind of were trailblazers. There was no WNBA. We started something and these young players are figuring it out, you know. When I played, there was no free agency. Now there's free agency. True free agency, where girls can go out and get their own endorsement deals. The league owned all our likenesses. So, we couldn't shop our names around. So, there's so many things that I still have a hand in with the younger generation, helping usher this end for them and help them make decisions that I still am highly involved in, in basketball. Steve Rush: That's great. So, on the basis, you're still finding yourself, which I love by the way, what's next for you? Crystal Robinson: What's next for you? We will see, I took a year off of work to promote this for basketball. To promote my book and who knows next year, I could end up back in basketball. But I only want to be back in basketball in an head coaching basis, just because it's a lot of work at the pro level. You don't really have a life; coach has a life because the assistants do all the work. Steve Rush: But you've earned that even the ability to be able to pass on that knowledge and to help guide, and actually also helps other people lead in that space as well, doesn't it? Crystal Robinson: How much public speaking as I can possibly do. I like to influence, so those are probably the two things that I would end up in. I'm already public speaking. I do a lot of that. Next month, I'll start doing a lot more of it. But eventually I'm sure basketball would probably call me back into it. Steve Rush: Is it a bit of a drug for your, basketball? Crystal Robinson: It used to be. Now is a completely different challenge. Now it's a challenge of convincing people. As the head coaches about psychology, you have all these great players. Convincing them to give up seven shots and give up a $50,000 potential bonus to help your team win. Like it's all psychology of moving people. And to me, that's a great challenge. It's easier to do things than it is to get people to do them. So, I'm still very driven towards perfection and figuring that out. And I think that, you know, as an assistant coach, most of the time I've been hired, it's been because of my ability to problem solve and my ability to keep the locker room good. So, I'd like to try that from a head coaching angle. Steve Rush: Cool, look forward to seeing you on the WNBA circuit soon then. Crystal Robinson: Yes. Steve Rush: Yeah, awesome. So now I'm going to turn the lens a little bit. Crystal Robinson: Okay. Steve Rush: Now you talked about leadership as a player and as a coach and having been a thought leader in your space as well. I'm going to ask you to try and think of, to distill all of those great leadership learnings that you have. And to narrow those down into your top three leadership hacks, what would they be? Crystal Robinson: My top three leadership hacks. The first one, probably be, treat people how you want to be treated, you know, being relatable. I think that one of the things that I've learned as a leader now with this younger generation, if they don't relate to you, you can't convince them to do anything you want them to do. It's going to be a fight and struggle with everything, you know, being relatable. Second thing I would say is, I was recently told by someone that I went into business with, you know, I'm a partial owner of a business and he told me, you can't tell people what to do if you don't know what to do. So, I suggest you get down there on the bottom level and learn what to do. So, I think, know what your employees are, what the people you're leading have to do. So, you can go back to relate to them, to help them along to be able to do it a better way. And then I would say, make sure everyone, it's not input. Everyone has to feel valued, you know, as a head coach in sports, you have this always a balancing act, you know, of treating everybody the same, but then you have players that score 30 points and you have player the score, no points, being able to make them feel important, no matter what their role is, I think is something that a leader should be able to do. Steve Rush: Yeah, that's great advice. It's not all about scoring goals, isn't it? Crystal Robinson: Yes, not all about that. I'm telling you, the best teams I've ever played on. It was a bunch of mediocre players who completely knew their roles and work together to make it happen. And it takes good leadership, and for me, I was in college, I could average 65 points a game, but in games where I could score 10 points and we could still win, I'd give my teammates their opportunities to shine. So, when I take over games, they, got out the way and they were very conducive to what we were trying to do. Steve Rush: The next part of the show Crystal, we call it Hack to Attack. So, this is typically where something in your life hasn't worked out well. And we know already having learned some of the stories from you already in this short conversation and having read your book, you've had a bunch to choose from, but maybe if there was one experience in your life that was perhaps at adversity, but you now use that specific advent for something that's positive in your life or work, what would be your Hack to Attack? Crystal Robinson: I was drafted into the American Basketball League and I was almost the last pick taken because I ended up leaving the NCAA school and going to a really low-level school, but I was still beating everybody at a high level. The American Basketball League where I was rookie of the year, and I was first team, all everything, it folded after two years. And I had no idea what I was going to do with my life at that point. I had a teaching degree, but I didn't know exactly what I was going to do. And then I got drafted in the sixth overall pick in the WNBA. Through that time period before that happened, I had gained some weight. I've kind of given up and whenever the WNBA came into play and I was the sixth overall draft, it just changed my life and my outlook on everything. And in terms of, you know, I almost given up hope, like I had been given this gift of basketball, and it would just snatch from me. I just made up my mind that, no matter what happened to WNBA, if anything ever happened, I was going to land on my feet and have a plan and be ready to go. Steve Rush: Yeah, and sometimes it's just being available and open to coincidence as well, isn't it? Crystal Robinson: Yeah, it is. Steve Rush: Sometimes when you're driving so hard to achieve things, you don't often see what else is going on around you. Crystal Robinson: And not being prepared for it. Steve Rush: Yeah. Crystal Robinson: You know, I just thought it was going to last, you get caught up in that euphoria, just wasn't prepared for it. When I retired from basketball, I retired at a very early age. I retired at the age of 34. I probably could have still played for four more years. But I knew basketball wasn't what I was going to do forever. I'd done everything I could possibly do in it. And my body was sore, so I retired. Steve Rush: Yeah, get out of the top. That's what it's about, right. So, if you could go back and meet Crystal at 21 and give her some advice, what would be your words of wisdom to her then? Crystal Robinson: I think my words of wisdom would be, always be kind and never give up, even when you don't see a way, don't stop. That would be my advice to my young self. Steve Rush: very profound, and indeed your pussy cat like that. Crystal Robinson: She just got closed and now she's making noise to get out. Steve Rush: So, Crystal. Your book by the way, is a fantastic read. So, any of our listeners who want to get their hands on a copy of Finding Myself, where's the best place for us to send them to? Not only get a copy of your book, but to learn a little bit more about the work you do now? Crystal Robinson: Amazon.com or go to susanhum.com. It's a thought leadership platform where I speak for a foundation called Still Rose. I'm also on the board of a foundation called Code Red, it's a foundation. It's a lot to that foundation. One of them is sex trafficking. And one of them is school shootings. We designed an app that schools don't have surveillance systems in them, but this app goes on teacher's phones. And if in a situation like that, it turns into a surveillance system, it's route it to a private company. And then I'm on a foundation of a board of Go Friends. You can also go to gofriends.com and read things about me. And basically, we go into prison systems, female prison systems, and we teach goal setting to try to help them when they get out of prison, hopefully they can stay out of prisons. Steve Rush: You're doing some fantastic work, honestly, from the journey you've been on, the adversity you've been through to now still being in the service of others. I just wanted to drop my hat and say, thank you. And thank you for being part of our community here on The Leadership Hacker Podcast. Crystal Robinson: No, thank you so much for having me.

In this episode of Breaking Green, we talk with eminent environmental scientist, Dr. Michael Dorsey, about the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report and current UN effort to address our collective future.The IPCC has issued a code red on climate change. The report states that there is an imminent risk of hitting the internationally agreed upon limit of 1.5 degrees in just decades and that immediate action is needed to avoid global warming's most dire consequences. But is there the political will to act? What solutions are being proposed? Are they likely to work or just technofixes designed to prop up business as usual?Breaking Green is produced by Global Justice Ecology Project.To become a sponsor of Breaking Green, CLICK HERE.Breaking Green is made possible by tax deductible donations from people like you.

Teslas crash into emergency vehicles, fake meat explained, the UN Climate Report in depth. Why not every bike light is enough for an e-bike. Brian travels to Winnipeg in his Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus. There were three Super Chargers along the way but he only needed two of them. But what if a Supercharger is not functioning? Is this the new 'range anxiety?' Fortunately Tesla is planning a massive expansion of the Super Charger Network and will include charging for all brands of electric vehicles. Estevan and Saskatoon SuperChargers are under construction and a trip to Edmonton will be possible. James eats The Impossible Burger at home and it was the best burger he's ever had at home! Ever! But he burped afterwards! Brian enjoyed the Impossible Whopper and liked it. What is the best day of the week to release a podcast episode? We have the answer from Libsyn! Undecided with Matt Ferrell does an episode on lab-grown meat and does a great job of giving a primer on the subject. It's real cells from cows replicated! James takes his son for an oil change and finds they want him to change his synthetic oil in 5000 kms! EVs don't have oil to change! A million people have watched Brian's filthy Tesla get detailed on YouTube. We delve into the UN climate report. Climate change is definitely human-caused. 1.5 degrees is inevitable and there's nothing we can do about it even if we stopped adding all carbon today. It would take 30 years for the CO2 to fade away. James's climate pet peeve is that people don't give a crap about their children or their grandchildren. Brian's power bill is low due to rooftop solar. But should the government be involved? James's Prius is costing a lot more to fill up but it's nothing compared to SUVs and pickup trucks. Electric vehicles are cheaper to fuel. The climate has to be addressed now. Fossil fuel companies have to go away. There's no time to waste. We never expected to see actual evidence of climate change this early in our lives. Oil and Gas hires people to object to clean energy. 20 locals were organized to push for near zero emission trucks at the port of L.A. In other words they wanted natural gas trucks instead of battery electric. The participants were told it was to protest for green activities. Hydrogen study shows that even with carbon capture from the burning of natural gas, blue hydrogen is more carbon intensive than just burning natural gas. Massive electric vehicle recall by General Motors. Many GM Bolts will be recalled for battery packs that could start on fire.
