Friends, why do we love being distracted from the important things of life? The great French philosopher Blaise Pascal observed, “The sole cause of man's unhappiness is that he does not know how to stay quietly in his room.” On today's episode of “The Word on Fire Show,” Brandon Vogt and I discuss why it is so hard to be still and contemplate reality, and how we can get better at it. A listener asks, what are some things laity can do to build unity in the Church?

Today Heather is joined by one of her favorite guests, eating disorder expert, dietitian, and biblical truth seeker, Amy Carlson. Amy and Heather dig into some of the messaging around food that they've observed floating around from Christian content creators. Today, the duo gets real and analyzes some of these messages. With an MS in Nutrition and more than twenty-five years of experience working with women with eating disorders and disordered eating, Amy challenges us to think about God as being with us on our eating journey instead of against us. A lot of the messaging around food coming at Christians casts food as "temptation" or "evil," but today's conversation looks at how God really intended us to relate to food and why demonizing food is not the best way to find a healthier relationship with it. Instead, we can invite God into this space and into our relationship and struggles with food. Heather and Amy also discuss the dangers in using Bible verses and stories to support disordered eating habits. Amy vulnerably shares how scripture played a role in her own journey into an eating disorder and how confusing and dangerous it can be to miss the context and goal of God's word and verses like, "commit your ways to the Lord and your plans will succeed" and twist it into a message of disordered eating. You're going to need to listen to this one twice! Get ready for a thought-provoking episode that just may challenge you to think about your relationship with food in a different way. Whether you've had a restriction-based eating disorder, or wrestling binge eating, if you've dieted all your life, or never been sure of how to handle food in a God-honoring way, this episode will encourage you. If it does, please leave a review.

I speak this all with conviction. Technology has become a cop-out, the cry of depraved hearts who want to serve themselves. While yes, there are some good things that come from it, the bad I believe far outweighs the good. I find that the most destructive area technology has fallen in has been the God-gifted time He has given us with our children. - Chelsey DeMatteis SUBSCRIBE to our sister podcasts:Crosswalk the Devotional: https://www.lifeaudio.com/crosswalk-devotional/Your Daily Bible Verse: https://www.lifeaudio.com/your-daily-bible-verse/ Discover more Christian podcasts at lifeaudio.com and inquire about advertising opportunities at lifeaudio.com/contact-us.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by actor and director OTTO BAXTER!...and joined by PETER BEARD and BRUCE FLETCHER of course. The trio here are responsible for the horror film 'The Puppet Asylum', and the documentary about Otto and the making of said film, 'Otto Baxter: Not A F*cking Horror Story'. Otto lives with Down Syndrome, which is of course not the main focus of this ace human but something that has had an affect on his world since birth. It's a great thing to hear about the making of the feature and the documentary, and a cool way of looking at such a creative outpouring. In this chat you hear the loud and proud Otto himself and from the directors involved who make a great pyramid of setup, explanation, discussion and general fun. At times you might notice that it's not the most calm, meditative and laidback ride BUT please don't let that draw you away - it's a really cool look at the world of Otto and the worlds Otto has created.

FOCUS ON THE CHALLENGE What is your biggest challenge right now? When coaches come to me for help, they aren't looking for coaching. They are looking for solutions to their biggest challenge. If you want to succeed, don't try to solve all of your problems. Focus on your next most important challenge. Stay focused until you reach success. Distraction is the enemy of our success. How many courses and books have your started but never finished? At that time, you had a challenge you were trying to overcome. Did the challenge just go away? Or, did you get distracted by the next big thing. LOSING CLIENTS A year ago, my business hit a plateau. I wasn't gaining clients as fast as I wanted. Things really slowed. My business expenses hadn't slowed down. And my revenue wasn't growing. One day I was on a call with a long time client. She was my most tenured client at the time. We had been together for quite some time. It was time to renew our agreement, and she dropped the bomb on me. On that call, she let me know she was doubling down on her business coach and did not want to renew with me. She said she appreciated all we've accomplished, but it was time to try something new. Now, most all business relationships come to an end at some point. In sports, players get traded, cut or retire. In business, leaders leave for other opportunities, get fired for sub-par performance, or leave due to life changes. Things come to an end and this was no different. But it felt different. I was getting comfortable with our relationship, but she needed more focus. Suddenly, I lost an important stream of revenue. And my business wasn't growing. More importantly, I wasn't growing. I wasn't doing anything to intentionally grow my business. GETTING CLIENTS It suddenly hit me that my clients was trimming back to gain focus. She had an important challenge she needed to solve, and focus would help her get there. When I evaluated my situation, I realized I too was following (and paying) three different experts. They each had a different strategy to achieve a different result. That's when I decided landing more clients was my number one priority. So, I decided to not renew one of my coaches. The second mentor was trimmed back tremendously. I remained involved in the group, but not to the level I had been. And, I doubled down on the one coach that had the clearest path to helping me land more clients. That was a year ago. In Q4 of 2022, I had my best quarter ever. More clients. Increased revenue. Incredible momentum. That is the power of focus on your most important challenge. Are you ready to overcome your challenge? First, identify your most important challenge that needs to be solved today. Next, find the one person or resource that can help you overcome that challenge. Finally, focus on that one challenge until you overcome it. Don't waiver. Eliminate all other distractions. Be diligent until you succeed. Coaches recently shared with me their most pressing challenge. Let's give you a few examples of how to overcome your challenge. LONG CONTENT My biggest challenge is setting time to prepare long term content, which I am working on, but not efficiently. Janie Take time to create a process. Each quarter, I create a content calendar. This calendar maps out the topics over the next 13 weeks. By laying out the topics, I have a roadmap to see how each topic connects to the next and supports the long-term strategy. Next, I create a rough outline for each of the 13 topics. This process takes a few hours. Block out the time once a quarter and your content creation will be much easier. Now that I have the outlines, I just need to create the episodes. And I repurpose the content. Define all of the steps that need to be completed to create your episode each week. You already have the outline. Now you simply need to perform. These steps will include equipment set up, recording, editing, exporting and publishing. Finally, schedule it. What gets scheduled gets done. You don't have to do all of the steps at the same time. In fact, it's wise to split them up. Recording and performing require a different part of the brain than editing and posting. There are times of the day when you are better at performing with high energy. And there are other times of the day when you are more focused for the detailed work of editing and posting. Do the work when you're in your zone of genius for each. The most important part is scheduling. Put it on your calendar and honor it. GETTING SALES My biggest challenge in my author business right now is getting sales for my already published books and also launching myself as a Speaker. Regards, Creg Which is most important? I would think being a speaker would lead to more book sales. Many coaches spread themselves too thin. My radio general manager once gave me a great piece of advice. We were planning our television advertising. Part of that process was deciding which shows to advertise on. He told me, "It's more important to go deep rather than wide." He wanted us to get in front of a focused audience many times rather than a broad audience once or twice. Instead of buying every show, we purchased ads on a few shows that we knew our audience was watching. Then, we were on that show multiple times to ensure our audience saw the commercial. When you are working to grow your podcast audience or grow your business, find three marketing vehicles that can help you get there and go all in. Don't try to do every strategy. It will take too long to build an audience. Instead, pick the three that you enjoy most, you can do well, and you can do consistently. That might include speaking at events, daily email, and podcast appearances. It might include social media groups, YouTube advertising, and webinars with JV partners. Pick your favorite three. Focus on those three only. Don't get distracted by the shiny new strategy. Stick to your three. REBRANDING I'm rebranding my podcast to unify my business. My challenge is should I start a new podcast, or just rename the one I have? Is there a traffic/audience size tipping-point that it makes more sense to do one over the other? -Ryan There isn't really a tipping point. It all depends on the audience. Will the new show have the same audience as the previous show? If so, just change the name and keep going. When the new show has a different audience, start a new show. Cliff Ravenscraft was the Podcast Answer Man. That was also the name of his show. Podcast Answer Man launched in December 2006 to help podcasters with everything podcasting. Cliff pivoted to become a life coach rather than simply a podcast coach. After 438 episodes, he rebranded the show to The Cliff Ravenscraft Show. The new podcast is devoted to helping people take their message, business and life to the next level. The Podcast Answer Man audience could also be the Cliff Ravenscraft audience. The target just expanded a bit. However, Cliff has now released a new version of Podcast Answer Man. He launched it in August 2021. Every episode of the new Podcast Answer Man will be evergreen content on the topic of Podcasting. Unfortunately, he has only posted 14 episodes in 2 years. Many podcasts have changed the name. It's not the name that matters. It comes down to the audience. Who are you trying to attract. Does your current audience fit that description? If so, just change the name and keep going.

This is episode 2 of a 4-part special series on mental health with Dr. Paul Conti, M.D., a Stanford and Harvard-trained psychiatrist currently running a clinical practice, the Pacific Premiere Group. Dr. Conti explains specific tools for how to overcome life's challenges using a framework of self-inquiry that explores all the key elements of self, including defense mechanisms, behaviors, self-awareness and attention. We also discuss our internal driving forces, how to align them and ultimately, how to cultivate a powerful “generative drive” of positive, aspirational pursuits. Dr. Conti also explains how to adjust your internal narratives, reduce self-limiting concepts, overcome intrusive thoughts, and how certain defense mechanisms, such as “acting out” or narcissism, show up in ourselves and others. The next episode in this special series explores how to build healthy relationships with others. For the full show notes, including articles, books, and other resources, visit hubermanlab.com.

As hope-focused parents who use all the tech that helps our children, and none of the tech that hurts them, our children don't need smartphones at school.

Today's discussion tackles this conversation in three steps: Why the smartphone conversation is different nowWhat schools can doWhat we can doThis conversation is one focused on the strong believe that God has made our children with a purpose, that education is a gift we must steward well, and that smartphones have their uses but the classroom is not one of them.Show Notes: https://bit.ly/3PcZ6yJ
