American writer and lecturer
In this episode, I talk about how to create meaningful relationships with people. I take you through an exercise that was presented to my Vistage group recently by Steve Bobowski, the CEO at Dale Carnegie. It's a 9-step process that is effective whether it's the first time you're meeting someone or whether you've known that person for a long period of time -- a great way in less than 5 minutes to really get to know someone on a meaninful level.As leaders of our businesses, whether we're entrepreneurs or executives, the people with whom we have the best relationships are the ones that are ultimately going to have the higher likelihood of creating the most trust -- and trust is one of the things that you cannot buy.You won't want to miss this episode.

The Shift “The greatest hunger of all is the hunger for meaning.” This is the first book I read from Wayne Dyer. During my recovery from depression, I had some insights on spirituality but I didn't know exactly what it is and how to explain it. This book speaks to me on a deep level and helps me learn a lot about my experience. It also got me started reading other spiritual books. If you are someone who is always working hard or doing a lot, but somehow still feel unfulfilled in life, this is the book to read. It takes you on a journey from ambition to meaning and let you realize that your spirit yearns for meaning, not ambition. The book is also made into an inspiration movie of the same name and released by Hay House. Wayne Dyer acted in the movie as himself. Print | eBook | Audio 2. Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life “Sharpen a blade too much and its edge will soon be lost.” This book is Wayne Dyer's interpretation of Lao Tze's Tao Te Ching. He spent one whole year reading and practicing the verses of the Tao. It consists of 81 chapters and is meant to be read slowly. You don't have to be a Taoist to receive wisdom from this book. Tao Te Ching is just a way of life and Wayne Dyer makes it easy for you to apply Lao Tze's teaching to your daily life. At the end of each chapter, he provides action steps which you can take to make your life peaceful, inspired and harmonious. If you want to have a book that you can refer to from time to time and remind you to be at peace, this is the book for you. Print | eBook | Audio 3. Being in Balance “There's no such thing as stress; there are only people thinking stressful thoughts.” Wayne Dyer says that everything in the universe is in balance, except we humans. He points out that there is a very subtle imbalance between our dream (our reason for life) and our habits (our way of life). For example, our desire to enjoy life is often hindered by our stressful thoughts of needing to achieve more. This book is not about adopting new strategies to change your behavior. It's about aligning your thinking habits with your deepest desires and restoring the natural equilibrium in your lives. In this book, Wayne Dyer covers nine imbalances that will help you be more aware of these unhealthy habits. This book is suitable for those who feel dissatisfied with their life but doesn't understand why. Print | eBook | Audio 4. The Power of Intention “You feel good not because the world is right, but your world is right because you feel good.” As the book title suggests, this book is about intention. This intention isn't your intention to do something; it's the intention of the universe. Wayne Dyer believes that there is an invisible force and energy field that is bigger than ourselves. When we surrender to this built-in intention in the universe and trust its power, we co-create the lives we desire. This book speaks to the heart. It allows you to feel connected to the universe and its 7 faces — creativity, kindness, love, beauty, expansiveness, abundance and receptivity. Not only will this book inspires you, it also provides a step-by-step guide to help you apply these principles into your daily life. Print | eBook | Audio 5. 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace “Have a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing.” This is a book about success but in the perspective of spirituality. It's not about goal setting, financial planning, or choosing the right career. It's about having inner peace which is what that truly defines success for him. In this book, Wayne Dyer elaborates on 10 principles that will guide you to tranquility. Unlike other books from him, this book is a quick read and doesn't have many personal stories. So it is suitable for anyone who is new to Wayne Dyer's works or spirituality. It's also good for someone who wants a quick recap of his teachings. Print | eBook | Audio 6. Wishes Fulfilled “The greatest gift that you were ever given was the gift of your imagination.” This book is about mastering the art of manifesting and getting what you really really want. The first part of this book gets you to change your concept of yourself and recognize something extraordinary within yourself. As per Wayne Dyer, your highest self is where you realize you are connected to the Divine. When you realize this, you can be anything and do anything. The second part of the book lays the foundation of how to manifest your wishes. The author says that if you want to accomplish something, you must first expect it of yourself. And it's not about making positive affirmations; it's a spiritual knowing. Deep down inside, you must know that you are what you already want to be for the manifestation to work. Print | eBook | Audio 7. There's a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem “Thinking is the source of problems. Your heart holds the answer to solving them.” This book is about dissolving the problems created by your mind. As per Wayne Dyer, problems are nothing more than mistakes in our thinking. If we tap into the higher frequency of our spirits, we can eliminate any problems in our lives. In the beginning of the book, the author shares his experience on having a heart attack and how he shifted from feeling self-pity and denial to gratitude and love. Even though his heart is still damaged, he was able to find peace and recovered when he shifted his energy from negativity to positivity. The book is suitable for you if you are open to new age philosophies and learning through anecdotes. Print | eBook | Audio 8. Wisdom of the Ages “This book is not about appreciating poetry and philosophy as much as it is about applying the wisdom of these writers to our everyday lives.” If you have read Wayne Dyer's books before, you will know he is fascinated by teachers who lived before us and likes to quote them in his books. For this book, he selects 60 teachers from a variety of eras and cultures and shares his interpretation of their works. The ancestral masters include Buddha, Michelangelo, Rumi, Whitman, and Jesus. At the end of each chapter, he also suggests how we can apply these teachings and wisdom to our modern lives. This book is great for those who enjoy reading poetry or about important people from the past and what they have taught the world. Print | eBook | Audio 9. Your Erroneous Zones “Happiness means no complaining about the things over which you can do nothing.” This book is not only Dr. Wayne Dyer first book, it's also one of his best-selling books. It has sold over 35 million copies! This book teaches you to take control of your life and not base your self-worth on other people. If you have problems with guilt, worry, anger, and procrastination, this book will help you deal with these erroneous zones and get out of the victim mindset. However, if you are used to the author's gentle, inspirational writing tone, this book might not be suitable for you. Before he had deeper insights on spirituality, his writing tends to be more on the motivational side and harsh. He even used some sexual references in the book which some might find inappropriate. Nonetheless, the content in this book is still useful and worth checking out. Print | eBook | Audio 10. I Can See Clearly Now “There is some sort of purpose associated with everything that arrives in your life.” This is a memoir on Wayne Dyer's life. He recalls and shares many of his intimate experiences from the time he was a boy up to the time he wrote this book. Through examining his own personal life, he wants to show us that there are no accidents in life. Each step of our journey has something important to teach us, be it good or bad. At the end of each chapter, he reveals what he has learned from each incident in his life and how they all lined up together. If you want to know the backstory of his books, this is the book to get. In this book, Wayne Dyer shares how he got his first book, Your Erroneous Zones, to become the bestseller and what got him to write some of the books on this list.

As per the author, we come into this world totally connected with our inner wisdom but we pick up fears and limitations along the way. This book doesn't teach you how to meditate. Instead, you are to take each topic and meditate or contemplate on the subject. If there's a statement that you don't agree with, it's okay. But for growth, you are encouraged to examine your beliefs. Print | eBook 6. You Can Heal Your Heart “Our thinking creates our experiences.

Em muitas culturas no mundo contemporâneo o esporte se desenvolve na mesma medida da economia de uma nação, das desigualdades sociais, da educação. De forma geral o esporte será tanto mais acessível e, portanto, desenvolvido, quando maiores forem os índices de desenvolvimento humano, seja de uma cidade, de um estado ou mesmo de um país. Como será que anda o voleibol fora dos grandes centros econômicos do Brasil? Como é fazer voleibol com investimentos considerados insuficientes?

Self-awareness, self-belief, self-direction, self-discipline – there are a host of these “self” aspects to who we are and often related to who we are not. If you grew up with a silver spoon firmly in your mouth, went to expensive, exclusive private schools, extensively travelled abroad with your parents at a young age and enjoyed the summers at your Swiss Boarding school in your youth, that is terrific. The chances are strong that your self-belief is strong and your expectations even higher. A lot of things have coalesced to help you be successful in life and along the way, you have been in an environment where being able to speak in front of others has been as natural as learning how to swim well. Probably for most of us, me included, this sounds like exceptional skill in parent selection. If the path in life has been rocky or even just “ordinary”, none of these advantages have been a factor in your life and career progression. Maybe you were able to pull yourself up by your own efforts and have achieved some success, to the degree that you are now someone who is asked to speak in front of others. Or maybe, you are an ordinary mortal, but through some strange fate, the firm wants you to speak to your team or the broader organisation or even in public, to industry groups. I now own my own company outright, have a Ph.D. in political science and international relations, am a 6th Dan in traditional karate and so you might be tempted to think, “naw, he wouldn't be someone who suffers from imposter syndrome”. I wish that was true. You may know this saying, “You can take the boy out of Brisbane, but you can't take the Brisbane out of the boy”. I have spent over half my life living in Japan now, but I am still that boy from Brisbane, with the poor parent selection abilities. In my case, I do a lot of public speaking. I also release six podcasts a week, of which five are what I write, based on my own experience and the curriculum from Dale Carnegie. I am constantly putting myself out there into the world, publicly exposing myself to judgement and critique. How do you go from where you came from, to now positioning yourself as an expert? This is where the imposter syndrome raises its ugly head. “Who do you think you are, to be putting all this stuff out into the ether?”, says the voice of doubt deep inside your head. Perfectionism is a big blocker for all of us. We feel because we are still incomplete, not perfect, we don't have the right to stand up in front of others and speak about our topic. We worry about being judged and found short. This is the highest hurdle to clear. Rather than perfectionism, we need to be thinking in terms of relativities. There is an old saying that “the one-eyed man is king, in the kingdom of the blind”. That is us. We have some small extra degree of concrete knowledge or experience, which may be more than what most people have accumulated, but it is certainly not absolute. We don't claim to have absolute knowledge on any subject. We note that we are perpetual students of the subject and are treading the path still, on the learning journey. This is very freeing. If we are speaking in front of others and we discover we have a bona fide expert on our subject in the audience, we shouldn't feel scared, diminished or that we need to become competitive with them. We should celebrate the fact they are attending and ask their views on some pertinent aspect of the subject, in particular an area where they may have substantially more knowledge or experience that we have. Here is the surprise. Your audience will appreciate their attendance and your ability to have them share. They will not stand up and start denouncing you as a charlatan, a fraud and someone who should be run out of town on a rail. We all understand that none of us have perfect knowledge on any subject, that we are all in the process of progressing and when you freely admit this, there is no target to attack. In karate we call it taisabaki – a movement to the side, which robs the attacker of a hard target. All they wind up doing is striking thin air, because you are no longer there directly in front of their blow. When presenting we do the same. We slip off to the side and admit we don't have perfect knowledge, we acknowledge the expertise or experience of members of the audience and we keep out brand intact. The golden rule is never argue with the members of the audience. Accept they may have a different view, allow them to express it and let the audience make up their own mind about the point at issue. If you become obstinate, then you are getting into the perfectionism zone and you will always be found wanting. The hardest attack is when the person cherry picks something you said, takes it out of context or misrepresents it, trying to make you look stupid. This happened to me during a Clubhouse discussion on selling in Japan. I should have handled it better, but the sudden public opposition to my opinion released a fog in my brain, so it wasn't as sharp as it should have been. I did have the perfect rejoinder about an hour later, but it was way too late by then. I did beat myself up about that, but then I realised, “hey, I did have the rejoinder for the next time and I will be ready to go in the future”. If we have integrity and admit we don't have perfect knowledge or complete experience, we are in a good position to stand up in front of others and offer what we do know. If we have the humility to allow diverse views and opinions, we don't present any target for someone the hit.m If we honestly face out own limitations, then we will interact with others in a manner which invites trust and acceptance. If we are supremely nervous about giving this presentation, then we are never, ever going to betray any sign of that. “Keep it to yourself” is the best policy. No one will notice, because they want us to succeed and we will.
The art of persuasion (and selling) is a critical component to creating a ton of revenue and growth in any business. Today I want to pull out a copy of one of the all time "great books" by Dale Carnegie...How to Win Friends and Influence People. There are 4 major parts to this book but today I want to cover the 3rd section on how to "win people to your way of thinking". I hope you enjoy these 12 pints I am goign to cover from teh book. 12 Critical points I want to go through with you today 1-The only way to get the best of an argument is to avoid it. no one ever wins an argument learn to take a minute, process the facts, and change your perspective 2-Show respect for the other person's opinions. Never say, “You're Wrong.” telling someone they are wrong only causes negative feelings even when they are wrong you can gain more ground being indirect 3-If you are wrong, admit it quickly and emphatically. when you take accountability and responsibility people trust you more don't wait to admit wrong…be quick and decisive about it 4-Begin in a friendly way. people are more open and receptive even if upset, we gain more ground with sincerity and friendliness 5-Get the other person saying “yes, yes” immediately. start with questions you know that answer to sales techniques get people in yes, yes buying patterns 6-Let the other person do a great deal of the talking. people like to talk and listen carefully to clues ask questions that lead rather than talking to lead 7-let the other person feel that the idea is theirs. people are more committed to their own ideas with proper questions you can lead people to your conclusion 8-Try honestly to see things from the other person's point of view. see first to understand…covey…then to be understood adopt a sympathetic grasp of their viewpoint 9-Be sympathetic with the other person's ideas and desires. people desire sympathy and sincere listening to their perspective feel felt found technique 10-Appeal to the nobler motives. people want to do things for what “they believe” are good reasons people are usually acting and are driven by motives they desire 11-Dramatize your ideas…we are in the AGE of DRAMA… :) stating facts isn't enough story telling is key and useful 12-Throw down a challenge. “everyone loves a good challenge" “everyone has something to prove…to others and themselves." Personal Note, we all want healthy relationships and I've learned over time that conflict, being matter of fact (even if right) is not a recipe for lasting relationships. Dale Carnegie does an excellent job of reminding us exactly what we can do to create a Winning, Persuasive and Productive Strategy for Getting what you want in life. If you are Sincerely trying to Create and Live your best life, then these are principles you need to live by. Thanks for tuning in today for our review of Dale Carnegies book. I look forward to your feedback, thoughts and our continued discussion tomorrow. See you then. Thanks for listening.

“It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.” ― Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People It is possible to be content in spite of the myriad challenges life throws at us. Yes, each of us has our own unique struggles, but folding our arms, frowning and saying, that's alright for you, but you don't know how it feels to be me, gets us nowhere. Instead, it takes us further into the darkness and makes digging ourselves out even more difficult. It isn't easy. But we signed up to be fathers and I am certain each of us made that decision hoping we would be up to the challenge. Are you? Have you decided to be a strong and reliable leader? When life gets tough and trouble arises, do you react emotionally, or do you respond by making the choice to stand up straight with your shoulders back and see the good in life? “May you live every day of your life.” - Jonathan Swift

How good is your Mongolian? Well, I don't know even one word in Mongolian, but I learnt a powerful lesson about presenting and communicating, when grappling with this language recently. I am a Master Trainer for Dale Carnegie and most of my time is spent working here for Japanese clients. Occasionally, I am asked to work with Dale Carnegie colleagues from other parts of the world, usually in APAC, to help certify their new trainers. This is how I came to be working with ten budding trainers from Ulan Bator. My instruction was given in English, but their own role plays and practice pieces, were done in Mongolian. I wondered at the start, how on earth can I coach these people, if I can't understand their language? I was surprised though by a number of things. We communicate with words, but we also communicate with structure, energy, passion, voice pacing and body language. Listening to their role plays, I could tell if they were not following the structure they were supposed to be using, even though I couldn't understand one word of what they were saying. This just reinforced for me the importance of designing our presentations using a clear structure, such that one each section flows seamlessly into the next section. We will have a number of points and sub-points in our talks and we will have chapters in the talk as well, as we move from one subject to the next. We need to make sure the sub-points flow and are obviously relevant, regarding the main thesis we are making in our presentation. We also need to make sure we have bridges to link the chapters together. If we just leap from one topic to the next, our audience may get lost and not make the connection. We know our subject intensively and extensively, so we have no problem juxtaposing the chapters together. However, someone hearing about content like this for the first time may struggle to follow the arc of the narrative we are explaining. The bridge doesn't have to be extensive or complicated, but it needs to be designed from the start. I enjoyed the Chinese classic, The History of The Three Kingdoms. At the end of each chapter, the author would say something like, “if you want to know what happened to Li Xue, then read the next chapter”. Such a primitive tool to link the story together, but it worked, because you were really wondering what was going to happen to Li Xue. We can do much better than that I am sure and we should. Let's work on our bridging technique to link the talk together using all the component parts. The energy levels of the different trainers were also a good indicator for me of the attractiveness of the content. I had no idea what the exact content was in Mongolian, but the degree of energy each speaker employed, transposed to me the amount of interest I should have in what they were saying. I noticed that if they were not injecting enough energy, I didn't feel much resonance with them. Those who could operate at the higher energy levels kept my concentration, regardless of the 100% linguistic barrier separating us. Training people and giving public talks, basically requires the same skill set in communication terms. Both need to be pumping out vast levels of energy throughout. Remember, the level of energy we employ for a chat over coffee is not what we need to be tapping into when we are on stage. Our role is now totally different and we have to move up some gears and adopt a much more powerful persona when we are on stage. Vocal variety is so important. If we are too soft or too strong all the way through, as if the volume control was stuck on the one setting, then we will lose the attention of our audience. If the speaker is too low key in their delivery from start to finish, the audience quickly gets bored and they start daydreaming about something else or even more likely today, they are lunging for their phones to escape from us, to the lure of the internet. If we are all relentless fire and brimstone, they get tired under the relentless bombardment from us. What I noticed from the class participants was the variation in their vocal delivery kept my attention, even though I was oblivious to the meaning of what they were saying. I thought, “Wow, if you can get this much impact in a foreign language, how much more potential is there when you are using your own native language when presenting”. The issue is often we forget about this and we get stuck in the one groove throughout our talk. None of the things I have mentioned here are new, complicated or difficult, but like a lot of things we know but don't do. Teaching the candidates from Mongolia was a good reminder for me of things I should be paying more attention to in my presentations. We all get into habits and lose some of the self-awareness we need to keep improving in our craft. Let's not do that!

Andrew Horn didn't know what he wanted to do next coming out of college. While his friends were excited to head off to their first jobs, he didn't have a sense of purpose in his life and felt that he'd hit rock bottom. So when one of his friends pointed out that sitting there sulking about his situation wouldn't change anything, he knew he had to do something. He realized that he had a desire to be of service to other people deep down. And the times he volunteered to help disabled youth to go into adaptive sports were one of the few experiences that he was proud of. This led him to start a children's nonprofit, which would grow to become one of the premier adaptive athletic providers in the DC metro area. Finding his purpose gave Andrew that sustainable energy source to be better than what he thought he could be and to keep pushing forward. This is the same energy that encouraged him to successfully launch his business and help propel its growth by 1,734% over the past three years. Let us hear from Andrew Horn, CEO at Tribute, as he shares his journey from being a delinquent frat boy to finding his true purpose and building a business that uses technology to foster meaningful connections in the world. Top Takeaways: 06:07 The lowest point in Andrew's life that prompted him to turn things around 07:46 One of the benefits of hitting rock bottom 10:14 The reason behind Andrew's success 11:16 What science says about meaningful relationships 16:31 How Andrew built his network 19:09 The importance of purposeful work 23:34 How the idea for Tribute came about 31:29 How Tribute deals with acquiring new customers 35:19 What Junto is all about 39:25 Andrew's thoughts on psychedelics and their healing properties Book recommendations: Atomic Habits by James Clear Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh To get in touch with Andrew Horn, go to LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrewhorn/ Website: https://www.tribute.co/ About the guest: Andrew Horn started a children's nonprofit organization called Dreams for Kids DC when he was 21 years old. It is now one of the premier adaptive athletic providers in the DC metro area. He also leads Junto, a community for men. It is a practical curriculum that helps men come together in a candid and vulnerable setting to talk about things, get more clarity about their own sense of masculinity, and connect their identity to their values to have a more profound understanding of purpose. Today, Andrew Horn is an Austin-based social entrepreneur and the CEO of Tribute.co. This platform allows users to celebrate the people they care about through a video montage. He is also a writer and communication coach. Forbes Magazine named him "Dale Carnegie for the Digital Age."

Viola erklärt was der Unterschied zwischen aktiver und passiver Bindungsangst ist. Aber wir sprechen nicht nur darüber, woran wir diese Ängste erkennen können, sondern auch darüber wie wir zur Heilung, Transformation und Entspannung kommen können. Dann ist da noch der Titel “Liebe mutig und lass dich lieben”. Wir reden darüber, was genau dieser Satz in Viola's Augen bedeutet und ob die Worte “Einlassen, Zulassen und Seinlassen” möglicherweise eine ähnliche Bedeutung haben könnten. Viola Heller ist Mentorin für Single Ladies, die niemanden brauchen, um "komplett" zu sein und doch ihr Leben mit Mr. oder Mrs. Right teilen wollen. Ihre Fachthemen sind Bindungsangst, Mindset & Emotionale Intelligenz, ganzheitliche Persönlichkeitsent- wicklung und erfolgreiche Datingstrategien. ________________________________________ LINKS TO VIOLA Website: https://www.violaheller.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ViolaHeller.Transformation Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/_viola_heller_/ Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/viola-heller-a3346a5a/ ________________________________________ LINKS MENTIONED IN THE INTERVIEW Wie man Freunde Gewinnt by Dale Carnegie: https://amzn.to/3MMVwIX Mindful Social Media Marketing by Bianca Fritz: https://amzn.to/3MRkB5C ________________________________________ CONNECT WITH ME Website: www.andrinatisi.com Instagram: www.instagram.com/andrinatisi/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/andrinatisiLIFECURATION

Brenden Kumarasamy is on a mission to empower the the next Elon Musk with education on communicating effectively. As a coach of university students in performing well with their communication skills in case competitions, he discovered that all of the knowledge he had wasn't available on the internet for free. He set out to change this. He started his YouTube channel, MasterTalk with humble beginnings, recording videos from the couch in his mom's basement. But that didn't take away from the value in the videos. Despite his young age (22) when he started this business, he recognized that many of the changemakers who wanted to make an impact in this world didn't have the resources they needed. His goal is to offer free resources for those who can't afford a communication coach. Learn more on the MasterTalk YouTube channel. Guest Bio: "I believe the next Elon Musk is a 7-year-old girl who can't afford a communication coach, so it's my duty to help her succeed with my free resources." - Brenden K. After many years of doing presentation case competitions (think professional sports for nerds) in university, I accidentally developed a skill in helping others communicate effectively and started the YouTube channel MasterTalk because I realized that everything I was teaching them wasn't available for FREE on the Internet. I heard a ton of advice that didn't make much sense like "be yourself" or "get up on stage" or better "imagine everyone in their underpants". I pressed record on my phone, started filming videos on communication in my mom's basement, and now the goal is to help everyone master this important skill. Brenden is the founder of MasterTalk, he coaches ambitious executives and entrepreneurs to become the top 1% communicators in their industry. He also has a popular YouTube channel called MasterTalk, with the goal of providing free access to communication tools for everyone in the world.

Continuing with day four of our Daily Leadership Tip Series, today we focus on remembering names.Have you ever been in one of those situations where you run into someone that you have met before and can't remember that person's name? It can be an awkward situation for both you and the other person. When we remember someone's name, we're telling him, “You're important.” Therefore, when we forget a person's name, we may leave the opposite impression. Do you want great service at a restaurant? Call the waitress by name when you place your order. Want to be the center of influence at a party? Introduce people you just met to others at the party. People love to hear their own name. In fact, Dale Carnegie said that “a person's name is to that person, the sweetest most important sound in any language.”If you want to be a good people person, focus on remembering names. They will feel more important because you remembered, and they will think more of you as well. Week #1: Build Trust and Rapport Quickly Principle #4: Make an Effort to Remember Names.

Key Points Leaders in nonprofits balance: 1)Leading the organizations mission and big picture; and 2) Managing the complex day-to-day organizational management Having a community and partnering with others in the same field can be beneficial for leaders to gain new skills and learn from people who are working in the same sphere and similar roles. Nonprofit leaders, or individuals who want to become leaders, need to distinguish between what feels good in the moment and what is actually good for the movement. Building a strong team and knowing how and what to delegate is key to sustainability.

“The best way to predict YOUR future is to CREATE it.” Abraham Lincoln And what better way to create our own life than to have our very own built in compass. BOOK RELEASE DATE: Memorial Day. Stay tuned. Watch this interview on YouTube here https://youtu.be/tPFhP5mg-l4 On this episode you will learn: ✔︎ How Assistant Principal Dan Wolfe came up with a "moral compass" using the 5 SEL Competencies to help students and teachers navigate through difficult times. ✔︎ How to use the 5 SEL Competencies to stay on track. ✔︎ How to use Dan's Self-Assessment to see where our strengths and areas of improvement are. ✔︎ How to use a "Compass Check" to monitor our progress along the way. ✔︎ Insights and AHA Moments with using the 5 SEL Competencies as your "guide." For returning guests, welcome back, and for those who are new here, I'm Andrea Samadi, author, and educator, with a passion for learning, understanding difficult concepts, and breaking them down so that we can all use and apply the most current research to improve our productivity and results in our schools, sports environments, and workplace environments. Today, on EPISODE #216, we will be speaking with Dan Wolfe, an Assistant Principal from Pasco County, Florida, on his new book Becoming the Change[i]: Five Essential Elements That Guide Us Towards Becoming Our Best Selves-- that is coming out before Memorial Day Weekend. Dan reached out to me via Twitter to let me know he was about to release a new book that was inspired by a blog he started on Social and Emotional Learning called “Our Moral Compass” that led to him starting the Become the Change Podcast[ii] where Dan focuses on the five areas of social and emotional learning that we have been focused on with this podcast. I'm always looking for unique ways to share these important SEL skills, and I loved what Dan has created with his book that compares SEL skills to a moral compass that can used to keep us on track with our life. Before the title of the book changed, it was going to called Our Moral Compass, and evolved to Becoming the Change. What caught my attention with Dan, BEFORE I had even read this book, was the original title. I wondered how he was going to use the SEL competencies to help us navigate through difficult times in our life. We all need a moral compass, and without this, we can veer off track very quickly. How do you navigate through life when times are difficult? Do you have your own built in compass that keeps you on track? I look forward to speaking with Dan, learning how he is using the analogy of a moral compass to help his students learn, navigate their way through the complexities of life, by understanding and apply SEL in our schools today. Let's meet Dan Wolfe! Welcome Dan Wolfe, thank you for reaching out to me and sharing your new book, Becoming the Change. INTRO Q: Dan, what caught my attention with what you have created is not just the fact I can see that you have been immersed in teaching SEL for many years, which is clear from your blog and podcast, that I know is a lot of work on top of being an Assistant Principal and all that goes along with this full-time position. When I first saw your compass analogy, with the SEL competencies that we have been covering on this podcast since we launched, (we did add mindset to ours) but you've got the 5 Casel[iii] Competencies covered, it made me think of this powerful leadership activity I did many years ago involving a compass. I was dropped off in the middle of the woods with a cooler of food, (that I remember being very heavy) and a tent, (that was awkward to carry) and we had to navigate to our camp site using a compass. There had to have been at least 5 of us. This was years before I think Casel even came up with their 5 competencies, (or at least they weren't online) but they were all apparent on this trek from where we were dropped off in the woods, to where we needed to go (our campsite) where we met up with all of the other groups in one place. This activity was of course to bring to light how we “showed up” in life under a stressful, grueling, difficult task. I've thought of this activity many times over the years, as an example of all that's needed to guide us through life…but the one area that really helped, especially when at a crossroads, was navigating life, with a moral compass that came from within, choosing what I think was best for me at the time. How did you come up with this idea of the moral compass connected to these important SEL skills? Self-awareness came up as we all got to see ourselves and unique characteristics on this journey. Relationship skills seemed to be the most important as we had to come to a consensus with every decision we made. Obviously they had to be responsible decisions to allow us to get to where we were going (hopefully before dark) so we could set up our tent in the daylight. Social awareness was apparent as we had to think outside of ourselves and help others, and we of course had to manage ourselves, and make sure our emotions were regulated in this difficult task. Q1: Like my example of using a compass, we had to make sure we stayed on track as we moved from where we were, to our final destination. When we went off track, we lost (or wasted) time that was important for setting up our campsite that evening. What happens when we go off track with your compass analogy? Pick one of the competencies and explain how we can use your compass to navigate this competency through life. Q2: There's a lot behind this quote that you mention as a Compass Check. “You are the Captain of Your Own Ship. Never let society determine the direction of your moral compass.” (Page 12, Becoming the Change). I think of this for leaders who have to forge their own way, often going where no one has ever gone before them, or even like we spoke on a recent episode with Dr. Marie Gervais, with the former CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi, who was given a lower wage because she a woman, and a woman of color. She didn't even think of asking for more, since it was a “good” wage, but she knew she was being limited. In all the 5 competencies we usually know what to do to stay on track, but something gets in the way, takes us off course, and we don't do it. How can we use this compass check to be responsible for ourselves, and our direction, as we pursue our goals? Q3: Since anyone forging their own way will have come up against all of these statements, I wonder if you could review your Becoming the Change Self-Assessment Tool to pinpoint which one of the 5 competencies we need to focus on? I took this self-reflection tool, and while all the competencies are a work in progress, what showed up for me was self-awareness scored the highest with your score of “I'm Headed in the Right Direction.” I know that I'm getting to know myself on a deeper level with each episode, and that my learning documented on this podcast, especially areas of growth that's apparent if we answer your questions honestly. I think there's always room for improvement and to learn more so I didn't check “I've reached my destination” EXCEPT for the same area you did on Relationship Skills and helping others grow, since this is what I'm doing with the podcast. What did you learn about yourself with this Self-Assessment? What do you see others learn with it? How can this tool be used like a compass to check our growth over time? Q4: I couldn't help noticing the choices on your self-assessment (I'm not sure which direction to go in or where to begin) or I'm at a crossroads, because I've been there many times. There was the time I was urged to move in the direction of neuroscience, and it was a new field for me, and I was questioning whether this was the right direction for me. What advice would you offer someone who has checked “I don't know where to begin” or even when you've been working for some time and you hit a cross-road and are “somewhat stuck.” How would you help someone move past these 2 scenarios? Q5: Chapter 2, Regulating Yourself Through Self-Management, you have a compass check about our true superpower. I heard podcaster Jay Shetty talking about superpowers and think we all have them, as we evolve, we get to know what they are. You put a quote in this chapter from Dale Carnegie about our True Superpower that I think is very important for us to all master. “Everybody in the world is seeking happiness—and there is one sure way to find it. That is by controlling your thoughts. Happiness doesn't depend on outward conditions. It depends on inner conditions.”― Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People In a world that seems to push our buttons daily (gas prices are skyrocketing, stress in the workplace is at an all-time high) how can we ALL master this superpower and stay in control of our happiness when the outside world is trying it's best to sabotage our happiness? Q6: In Chapter 3, Social Awareness, you have a quote by Brian Tracy. “Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others.”-Brian Tracy This is a big one for me, and what's crazy is that if you are not aware of your surroundings, this opportunity to lend a hand to another person can be missed. Your story about Sept 11th took me back to that time and I had only been living in the US a few months. The job I had come to do with youth had fell through, and I was at a crossroads, working out where I was going next, and to pay the bills, I found a job as a nanny at a local resort, and cleaned houses. Money was really tight. I remember standing in line at a grocery store and the guy in front of me was buying diapers (gosh after having kids, diapers were one of those necessities that you had to have, but boy where they expensive). I was NOT socially aware back then, and was thinking of myself, and in a split second I watched him not have enough money to pay for the diapers, and the check out clerk took them, and he ran out of the store. I missed an opportunity to help this guy, and I even tried to find him when I went outside of the store, but this has bothered me since that moment, over 20 years ago. Being socially aware is one thing, but being ready to act on it, when someone is in need is another. What have you noticed with social awareness and how to be prepared at all times to help others? Q7: Chapter 4 on Enhancing Your Relationship Skills, you quote that No One is Perfect “When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” -Donald Miller This reminded me of my last interview with Dr. Marie Gervais, and her book The Spirit of Work when I noticed that when we look at each person's spirit, that's for fuller expansion, we can only see greatness in this person, not their imperfections. How have you used this idea to enhance your relationships and look at everyone in this way? Q8: Chapter 5 Responsible Decision-Making you quote Gary Vaynerchuk who says “Your legacy is being written by yourself. Make the right decisions.” I love Gary V, and liked this quote because we all do have an incredible opportunity to leave an important legacy in our lifetime, that can impact others, for years after we are gone and create what you say as “an everlasting legacy.” What advice would you have here about being mindful of our decisions today, so that we can strengthen the legacy we are working our entire lifetime on? Q9: Is there something important that I have missed? Dan, I want to thank you very much for sharing your new book with us. I absolutely love the moral compass analogy, and know this will help many others navigate through these 5 SEL competencies with a clear path. For people who want to access your book, what is the best way? Is your website the best place for people to find you?

Matt Young is the CEO of UserVoice, the first (and we think best!) product feedback and research tool for software companies around the world. Matt started his professional career as a software developer, right when web browsers were released. He developed innovative solutions on the web well before SaaS and Product Management were the ubiquitous terms that they are today. Over his career, he has pushed for better ways to build software. And through all the changes in development methodologies, he has put the customer at the centre of everything his teams have built. This is what attracted him to UserVoice - an opportunity to make sure that teams building complex software solutions have direct access to the intended users - to make sure that the problems any company or development team are solving are actually worth solving. Questions Could you share a little bit about your journey with our listeners, in your own words? Could you tell us a little bit about UserVoice? To the average listener that's listening to this podcast, a little bit about the company, what does the company do? And what types of businesses do you primarily service? What about tips for improving feature request responses? Could you share with us what's the one online resource, tool, website or app that you absolutely can't live without in your business? Can you also share with us maybe one or two books that have had the biggest impact on you? It could be a book that you read a very long time ago, or even one that you've read recently that has really impacted you in a great way. If you could choose the best customer service or customer experience tip to give to our listeners who are business owners, what would be the most important tip that you would give them to ensure that their business is successful? Could you also share with us what's the one thing that's going on in your life right now that you're really excited about? Either something you're working on to develop yourself or your people. Where can they find you online? Do you have a quote or a saying that during times of adversity or challenge you'll tend to revert to this quote, it kind of helps to get you back on track if for whatever reason you got derailed or you got off track. Highlights Matt's Journey Matt shared that he had a pretty ordinary software development career starting off as an individual software developer, and then moving into management. The thing that he had experienced while doing all that was that he would notice that product teams would ask engineering teams, which are big and expensive and complicated to build things and didn't really have a good way to justify the reasoning behind that. He was really interested in hearing why customers thought what they were being asked to build was important, why it was an important problem to solve, why the solution they had in mind was a good one for them. And he just was really passionate about companies being connected to the users that they serve. So, that's kind of what brought him to UserVoice. He started out as the VP of Engineering at UserVoice but over the years, they've spun out a couple of other products and other companies, so the original founder is now the CEO of a sister company of theirs, it's working on some parallel products, and UserVoice is his to run and build and all the responsibility and fun that comes with that. What is UserVoice and What Does the Company Do? Me: Could you tell us a little bit about UserVoice? To the average listener that's listening to this podcast, a little bit about the company, what does the company do? And what types of businesses do you primarily service? Matt shared that UserVoice is a software as a service product and it's all oriented around making sure that you can gather any feedback that comes your way about your product, and that that feedback is available to the entire organization and can be analyzed and used to make products better. So, you guys have probably seen somewhere in your professional lives, a place where you had the opportunity to tell a team how they could make their product better, and that's evolved over the years and the way that that happens. There are annoying ways to do it, like with pop-up windows and there're really common ways to do it, like with surveys. But whether you've got a system in place or not, like people are providing feedback all the time, they're doing that in the middle of a sales demo, for example, they're saying what they do and don't like about the product, they're showing. They're doing that through support tickets, by asking about a thing they want to try to accomplish that may not be supported yet. So, UserVoice the product makes it really easy for anyone who's in any position to hear customer feedback, either an employee of the company and support sales or success, or the customers themselves, have the ability to send whatever it is that's worrying them to the company and then gives the product team the ability to aggregate what is usually a pretty big mountain of data into something that helps them relate their product development plans to the goals that the company currently has. So, the short story is they're a software as a service product, but it's a business analysis tool that's built around product feedback. Me: One of the things I was intrigued in getting your feedback on is, do you think customers should be driving the product roadmap? Matt stated that that's a question that they get asked quite a bit and the funny thing about that is that a lot of the traditional like stereotypical personality type of a product manager is a very creative type person and he thinks they can feel a little bit threatened by saying, “Hey, your customers should drive your roadmap.” And they think, “Well, what about me? What about the innovation and creativity that we have to bring to bear?” He thinks it's a mistake to think of it as a black and white question like, should customers be driving a roadmap? “No.” Should companies be creating a roadmap without customer input? “No, neither one is quite right.” They need to use each other to really understand each other and meet to find common ground about the real problems that they're trying to solve. So, he basically views customer feedback as research inputs into a roadmap that's getting created. Not customers, like actually prioritizing things and steering the ship directly but they do have a lot of really valuable information for companies that can help them go to market with much greater success. Tips for Improving Feature Request Responses Matt stated that the typical product manager is getting asked to do a lot of things, they're getting asked by their co-workers to change the product to close a deal, for example, customers obviously have a lot of input. One thing that really makes a lot of product managers nervous is the fact that they know that they need to say no to a lot of these things just because of resource constraints, or that what they're being asked for doesn't necessarily fit the vision of the company. But getting comfortable saying no to people, he thinks it's just a matter of being more transparent with them. The customers of software, especially these days are getting more sophisticated and understanding how software is developed, how hard it is to make it perfect and do all the things that you want it to do. So, he thinks transparency goes a really long way so when you do get feedback about your product, acknowledging the people that you're listening, making sure that they feel valued, and that the time they took to give you that feedback is something that you take seriously and find value in yourself, acknowledging that is important. But then being very frank with what's the process, what's going to happen next. He doesn't think most customers would expect, “Okay, great, we're going to get to work on this right away.” That's not the way that software gets developed. But if you can explain to people like, “Hey, cool, thanks. I've made a note of this. We're going to talk about it with the team; we're going to keep our ears out for other customers like you who might need a similar kind of thing. And is it okay if we come back to you and have a conversation about this topic later when we decide to dig into it some more and get some more specific feedback from you about how your point of view has changed, about different solutions we're considering and all those things.” So, using customer feedback as an invitation to engage with a customer base, he thinks is a really good way to look at it. Me: Now, as it relates to product development, a lot of a lot of customers I believe have challenges sometimes trying to identify what's the right type of product that they may need for their business. The customer feedback, it's definitely something you should get ongoing once you actually sold a product, or you've had an idea of what the design is going to look like and how it's going to affect the customer's life. But let's say you're at a developmental stage where you're not sure exactly what the market needs, how do you gather feedback at that point? Matt stated that the best way to do that is through one on one interviews. And he thinks them being a one on one, he'd say in person, but more often than not, it's something like a Zoom call or a Skype call or something like that, where you're talking to people. You want to get as high fidelity information as you possibly can from people and that usually requires a conversation, asking people to fill in a form, it's kind of a boring activity. You can't ask follow on questions, etc. And when you're just in that early stage of developing your product, you want to be able to interact with that customer and maybe observe how excited or indifferent they are about what you're building. Are they just eager and jumping out of their seat at the opportunity to use something like what you're describing to them? Or are they more middle of the road. Most people are very polite, so they're not going to tell you that it's a bad idea or anything like that but they might not be excited about it and that's a pretty good sign that you might not be on to something that's truly differentiated in the market for you. So, they always say like, until you have 100 or so customers, doing interviews in person and not getting software systems in the middle of that connection between you and a customer is really important to do, where once you cross a threshold of a 100 or so customers, you need to have systems that can scale because your time is limited, and you couldn't possibly have conversations with every single one of them. Me: Agreed. So feedback, your whole solution is built around feedback. And I think feedback is so important. How is it that you handle dealing with some of your clients? For example, here in Jamaica, I found that sometimes when organizations get feedback, whether it's in like in an electronic format, or it is submitted to them in a verbal conversation, sometimes the organizations get defensive and it comes over in their tone and their language. Matt agreed and stated that if you think about feedback, when was the last time you went out of your way to go tell someone they were doing a great job? “Everything that you are doing, and your product is awesome, and I love it, don't change a thing.” That just doesn't happen. You might occasionally get a compliment about something they do like, but it's always going to come with something that people want to be different. So, as a company who provides a product to people, get into the mindset that they're not judging you, they're not trying to tell you you've done a bad job, they're trying to express to you what problems they think you might be a partner to them and help solve are and if you view it that way, then it's a whole lot less threatening, you're less likely to get defensive. It's never going to be all good news, it's mostly like, “Here are deficiencies that I think you have in your product and ways that it could be better.” But don't take it that way, take it to mean like, “Okay, these are opportunities that we have, that are potential improvements that could not only benefit our business, but really benefit these customers and what they're trying to do in their lives.” They get a lot of people who come to them who are pretty nervous about opening up the door to get feedback about their products, because it does seem like a little bit of a bad news train that's going to come your way. But they always try to coach them that like, “Okay, well, would you feel better just doing this blind, fumbling around, building software hoping that you're right. Or would you rather have actionable real information from people, even if it is a little bit tough to take at times?” And inevitably, when you think about it like, “Yeah, I know need the information, it's just we've been working so hard, and everyone's poured their hearts into it and I don't know if I can take hearing all the ways that people don't like it.” But it's okay, you'll get through it, we're all tough human beings. So it'll serve you well in the long run. Me: That's really, really good advice. And it's good to know that even though you're an organization that's focused on feedback, you do offer some form of coaching with your clients, to kind of get them in that mindset to change your perspective, because you are correct. If you change your perspective and look at it as an opportunity, which generally speaking, I don't think the customer would come back to give you feedback if they didn't want to continue using your product. Matt agreed. They wouldn't bother, the fact that they spared some time for you is a really good sign. It shows a degree of passion. As he's thinking about this, he's thinking about the world's most successful companies and you might in your mind, say, “Well, they've got it made, they've got these huge customer bases that are rolling in money.” But if you think about their world, they have even more feedback coming their way that's even more critical coming from all different directions in the world, because they are so popular. So it never ends, you're always going to get advice either unsolicited or solicited about how it could be better. So use it, use it to your advantage, make it a tool, not a threat. App, Website or Tool that Matt Absolutely Can't Live Without in His Business When asked about online resource that he cannot live without, Matt shared that the app for him, it's Superhuman, the email client. They, like a lot of companies when the pandemic started shifted to working remotely and so even more than ever, his world is driven by email. So having a very efficient system in place that drives the mountain of email that shows up in his inbox every day, you can pry Superhuman out of his cold dead hands. And one of the things he likes about Superhuman also is that they're very public about the way that they do assess its value and build it. And Rahul Vohra who runs Superhuman, is a really interesting resource to look at from a product management perspective. So on two fronts, it's a great product and the way that they work on it is really interesting. Books that Have Had the Biggest Impact on Matt When asked about books that have impacted him, Matt stated that he'll share two because there's just one very old one that he read a long time ago and there's one relatively newer one that he thinks is really important. The older one is an old favourite that he's sure you've all heard of, How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie. And the reason he likes it so much is that he's an introvert. And introverts are not shy, they're not afraid of social interactions or anything like that but it drains energy to have a lot of interactions with people. And How to Win Friends & Influence People was really to him the beginning of understanding behavioral psychology and learning how to do that on a person to person basis really set the foundation for thinking about how to build software products that speak to the psychological motivations behind what people do and don't do. So to him, it was kind of like the impetus to get started with what turned into a much bigger thing so they study psychology to try to make sure that their products are really good too. And it's a very approachable thing, especially if you listen to the audio book, whoever they got to narrate; it just feels like a warm blanket on a cold day, that guy's voice is great. The other one he'd recommend, it's along the same lines, there's a book by Yuval Noah Harari called Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind and it's this very interesting discussion about the evolution of mankind and the various phases that it's gone through, even going back to like cavemen. But looking at the Iron Age, the Stone Age, all the different ages that we've gone through, and even more recent history. It even looks at things like religion through the lens of all the different eras. There was a time in history where multiple Gods was the norm. And the days we live in today, one God is the norm. And by looking at things way zoomed out like this, and humankind, you start to see the patterns of what changes and what stays the same with all of us over time and it's just this fascinating, very unusual perspective on humankind that he thought was really interesting. Important Customer Experience Tips for Business Owners to Ensure That Their Business is Successful Me: Now, Matt, could you also share with us and this is a bonus question. It wasn't in the conversation flow, but I feel like you give us an amazing answer. So the question is, if you could choose the best customer service or customer experience tip to give to our listeners who are business owners, what would be the most important tip that you would give them to ensure that their business is successful? Matt stated that he's going to say something that is a variation of like, make sure people aren't just the numbers to you and to put that into very tactical terms, call people by their name, and view them as an actual human being. If you're answering a support ticket, it's very easy to view things as an email that's coming through without a person behind it, who's having an actual problem, or having a good day or a bad day or frustration or excitement about what you're doing. But if you can always be visualizing the person behind it, and the fact that they go beyond this relationship that you have with them about your product, and they are a human being that is just like you in terms of their hopes and dreams and fears and the lives that they lead, it's going to make you a much more empathetic provider of services and that goes a really, really long way in the success of businesses. What Matt is Really Excited About Now! Matt stated that this is actually something he's really, really excited about. They just switched to a four day workweek, UserVoice did. And he thinks it's common in some areas of Europe, Scandinavia, in particular is kind of leading the way on it. But not a lot of American companies have tried this out and he thinks that's born of a few things and it's conjecture on his part but he thinks it's just lack of trust that a lot of companies have in their workforce, which he thinks is a huge mistake. But they're a relatively small company, and they try to be very experimental in what they do. And in doing so, they started a four day workweek experiment about six weeks ago. And they laid out what their goals were, their goals were concrete, they wanted to make sure that their output was just as good as it is with a five day work week. But they wanted to make sure that people had more time to pursue their lives outside of work. And it's been an epically good experience across the board, he's sent out a survey every two weeks since they started asking people if they would continue if they had to decide today, and then asking about what some of the pros and cons have been. And people will tell you, like, “My days are busy, but they're very engaging. And I feel like this scarcity of time makes me choose my battles really carefully.” And then, the one thing as an example, a guy named Tori, who's a product manager on their team, he has date morning with his wife every Friday morning, because the kids are at school, and his wife's favourite thing to do is to go have breakfast at a restaurant. And so, they just do this every Friday, it's like, “My marriage is better, my connection to my wife is better, and I enjoy my job more.” So this is something he thinks more companies should look into. It's been great for them. Me: I totally agree. Lovely, I love that. I really, really love that, I'm sure your employees must be totally excited that the organization is taking this leap forward. And you're doing it in a country or territory where it's not widely adopted as yet, hopefully, it will be eventually, as you had mentioned. Matt shared that he has a hard time imagining going back to I five day workweek, it's only been a month and a half after working professionally for 35 years. Me: I've spoken to so many people that said that they don't know what it would be like to go back into the office. And like here in Jamaica, we were kind of emerging out of the pandemic like a lot of other countries are, but there are a lot of organizations who they just can't see and I think it's because they don't have the systems and tools in place, really but they just can't see their business operating with their team members, majority of them operating from home, and some of them in all honesty, really don't need to be in a physical space, in a building, in a business district area to come and get the job done. I think if they had the right productivity tools to kind of measure and as you said, they were able to clearly identify what their goals are, and are still able to achieve those goals with their team members working from home, it's very doable. Matt stated that it does take trust on the part of the leadership of the organization, that you've hired the right people and that a lot of companies say this, but he thinks a lot of companies, it's lip service that, “I don't care what you do, as long as you get your work done.” There are other companies that if they find out, “I took an hour long walk at lunch, because I wanted to, they might get judgy about that,” which is why if you're getting good stuff done, it doesn't make any sense. So, he agrees. It's very similar to the remote versus office problem, and he doesn't need to watch someone work to know that they're doing a good job; he wants to see the results of what they do. Where Can We Find Matt Online LinkedIn – Matt Young Email – firstname.lastname@example.org Quote or Saying that During Times of Adversity Matt Uses When asked about quote or saying that he tends to revert to, Matt stated that he doesn't have a quote; his mind just doesn't work that way. If people ask him about like people that he follows and all that stuff, he tends not to do that, he tends to just assimilate his worldview into something that is influenced in small and big ways by all the different things he's read or all the different people that he interacts with. But he thinks that the most important thing that he tries to keep in mind, especially these days, it was highlighted by the pandemic happening is that your life is not your job. To him, the most important thing is the positive impact that you have on the earth in the time that you're here. Most specifically, the people around you. He grew up outside New York City so sometimes his language can be colourful, so he won't say it; don't be a you know, what is, the thing that drives him all the time, other people are just as stressed as you are, they're less privileged than you are, just have a bit of empathy for them.
