Something that people ask, "Well, if this is great, why hasn't it been done before?" Those are some of the challenges we have—getting commercial estate lenders to understand that what we're saying is actually true. They scratch their head, like this sounds almost too good to be true sort of thing. And sometimes when people think that, they start thinking maybe they shouldn't be the first one.

Our politically polarized society pushes us to be divided from those on the other side. Leaders on all sides wield the weapon of divisiveness in seemingly every fight. We're led to believe that disagreement necessitates division. But Jesus begs to differ. In fact, one of Jesus' chief worries was that his diverse followers would succumb to these divisive ways of the world. So in today's sermon, we'll explore why Jesus was so worried about division, how we can disagree differently, and the difference it makes when we do.

The Oceans and the Stars: A Sea Story, A War Story, A Love Story (A Novel) Mark Helprin belongs to no literary school, movement, tendency, or trend. As many have observed, and as Time Magazine has phrased it, “He lights his own way.” His three collections of short stories (A Dove of the East and Other Stories, Ellis Island and Other Stories, and The Pacific and Other Stories), seven novels (Refiner's Fire, Winter's Tale, A Soldier of the Great War, Memoir From Antproof Case, Freddy and Fredericka, In Sunlight and In Shadow, and Paris in the Present Tense), and three children's books (Swan Lake, A City in Winter, and The Veil of Snows, all illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg), speak eloquently for themselves and are remarkable throughout, for the sustained beauty and power of their language. Helprin's academic training, military service, decades of journalism, and involvement in politics and statesmanship as an obligation of citizenship, although secondary at best, have gained some attention nonetheless. Translated into a score of languages, his books include A Dove of the East & Other Stories, Refiner's Fire, Ellis Island & Other Stories, Winter's Tale, Swan Lake (with illustrations by Chris Van Allsburg), A Soldier of the Great War, Memoir from Antproof Case, A City in Winter, and The Veil of Snows (both with illustrations by Chris Van Allsburg), The Pacific & Other Stories, Freddy and Fredericka, Digital Barbarism, In Sunlight and in Shadow, A Kingdom Far and Clear, and Paris in the Present Tense.

In business we have information coming at us a mile a minute. Some of it's useful, some of it not-so-much. At the same time, each of us (and our employees) have lives outside of work. Big things, little things, old things, new things, all the things that we carry with us that makes us who we are–but which also can interfere with productivity and general ability to be “present” at work. In this episode of HR Power Hour, join host Tawny Alvarez, as she talks to Dr. Amy Wood, psychologist, about ways that high performers can defy disruption and improve their focus. From understanding the effect technology has on our lives–both how it helps and hinders productivity–to how clutter in the work environment is adversely affecting our ability to think clearly, this show will be packed with helpful tips to improve your and your team's focus.
How to Stay Motivated Even If You're a Writer A lot of writers hate writing. They sit and stare at the blank page or screen. They end up posting about how hard writing is, how torturous. Their post will get them a million likes. But it wasn't always like that for that. Most of us write because at one point we really loved writing. Drawing? The same thing. There was a study of little kids in a school setting and these little kids really loved to draw. They chose it as a free-time activity over and over again. So the researchers started to give them gold stars for drawing as a reward for the activity. The kids kept drawing. Then the researchers took the gold stars away. The kids stopped drawing—this thing they loved—because they were no longer getting an external reward and dopamine rush for it. Their internal reward that had compelled them to draw earlier? It no longer mattered. We do this to ourselves all the time. We look to external rewards and validation instead of to the inside. Dopamine is basically this feel good chemical (or neurotransmitter) that brings information from one neuron to another. Our brains let the dopamine loose into the nervous system when we do the horizontal mambo, when we eat something yummy, when we do cool things, even when we drink or do drugs (which is why those things can be so addictive, right?). When we do painful things (like running or studying or writing our epic novel about two gerbils against the universe), our brain will release dopamine later for the reward, but in the moment you have to say: I am doing this by choice I am doing this because I love it. This is hard, but hard is good because hard means striving, hard means that I'm probably in a growth mindset. You want to turn effort into reward and pull pleasure from the effort itself, not the reward that comes at the end because that makes you resent the effort. Or if you're an overthinker (cough), you might realize that there may be no reward at the end, no seven-figure book contract, no marathon that you magically finish in the top ten. You want the dopamine to be linked to the effort of training, of running, of studying itself, of putting your butt in chair and writing about Xena Gerbil Princess and her true love the gerbil bard, Gabby. There's a Navy Seal, David Goggins, retired, right? And he is all about this: about giving what you do everything you have so that you can achieve greatness and self discipline and toughness. Now, a Navy Seal seems light years away from a writer sending out social media posts about how much they hate writing and how painful it is or about the writer who only looks toward the reward of publication (traditional) or massive sales (independent or traditional). Why does this matter? I work with a ton of authors who are so talented. But some can't bring themselves to write any more. I work with a ton of authors who are so talented. But some are too afraid of rejection to lean in and enjoy their talent or process or even send out some pages. “Our culture has become hooked on the quick-fix, the life hack, efficiency. Everyone is on the hunt for that simple action algorithm that nets maximum profit with the least amount of effort. There's no denying this attitude may get you some of the trappings of success, if you're lucky, but it will not lead to a calloused mind or self-mastery. If you want to master the mind and remove your governor, you'll have to become addicted to hard work. Because passion and obsession, even talent, are only useful tools if you have the work ethic to back them up.” ― David Goggins, Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds DOG TIP FOR LIFE Play for the love of playing. - Pogie Pup LINKS WE MENTION https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/basics/dopamine SHOUT OUT!

Global consumer strategist Aparna Bharadwaj shares a fascinating glimpse at under-the-radar affinities that transcend cultures and borders -- from the way people snack in China and Saudi Arabia to how people shop for clothes in the US and Russia. "There are patterns where you least expect them," she says -- and paying attention to them just might bring the world a little bit closer. After the talk, Modupe expands on how data can connect people and help us better understand each other's needs.

Alex and Meredith are dissecting a topic that affects us all - the myth of perfection. It's extremely important to recognize that everyone has their own challenges and struggles, and that it is okay to not have it all together all the time. There's a difference between maintaining and pushing in regards to priorities, and we have to be kind to ourselves by giving ourselves permission to take a step back when necessary. Self-compassion, curiosity, vulnerability, and connection are all qualities that can help us navigate difficult moments. Passionate anti-perfectionists who adopt a more "work in progress" and "good enough" mentality, Alex and Meredith also explore the impact of social media on our perceptions of perfection and the unrealistic expectations they can create. — The Canada Day Holiday, Working from Home, & Auto-responders — Why Perfectionism Is The Worst— The Myth of Perfection— Pressure to Have Everything Figured Out— Allowing Vulnerability & Compassion— The Toxicity of Social Media & Only Seeing "Success"— Work in Progress & The Belief that Good Enough is Good Enough— Investments & Returns— Doing Something is Better than Doing Nothing— Complete > Perfect— Don't Go Hard— Self-Compassion & Being Human— 'Good Enough'Resources Mentioned in This Episode:The Growth Equation Podcast with Brad Sulberg & Steve Magness "160 -- The Attention Economy"Move Your BusHow to Win Friends and Influence People by Dave CarnegieCan't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds by David Goggins ────────────────────────────Want to work with Tactic Functional Nutrition?
