Are you gearing up to make 2024 your most successful year yet? Then this podcast is tailor-made for you. Join me as I guide you through the essential steps to mentally and physically gear up for an outstanding new year. Whether 2023 was a year of challenges or a year where your expectations weren't fully met, this fresh start is your opportunity to shine. Perhaps you're reflecting on your 2023 successes, wondering how to surpass them, or you might feel you fell short of your goals. In either case, we'll navigate these feelings and strategize to set you up for unparalleled success. Welcome to Part 1 of our two-part series, where we'll focus on cultivating a winning mindset to kickstart your journey. Episode Highlights: [02:53] It's time to take this mindset information in and put it into practice. Take action. [03:30] Evaluate your year. Ask yourself the following questions. 1. How am I different now than I was in January? Think about the positives and the negatives. How have the positive changes impacted your life? [04:08] 2. How have I stayed the same? How has this helped or hindered me? [04:35] After answering these questions, ask yourself where you believe that you have the most work to do. [07:03] I've noticed that there were times where I just coasted in my business. I looked at the tangible outcomes and my business and clients have increased, but I didn't hit all of my goals. [09:00] Know when and where you need to push and where you need to pause. This is important as you decide how you want 2024 to look. [10:25] Have a picture of what you want the year to look like before you go out and set your big goals. Envision what you want your everyday life to be like. [11:08] Everything is determined by how you answer the question of what you want your life to look like. [12:44] Allow yourself to dream and listen to the information that comes up in your mind. [13:25] When you capture all the thoughts about your dreams, your unconscious limitations will come up. Challenge these thoughts and fight for the opposite. [15:33] Fight for the possibilities as opposed to fighting for the limitations. [18:06] Practice catching your limiting thoughts and ignoring other people's possible limiting thoughts. [19:52] After you've tackled what you want your life to look like and the limiting thoughts, then it's time to work on the how. [20:40] Really take time and spend it on these two steps and next week we will tackle the action stage. Links and Resources: Watch The Breakthrough on AIB Network Ready to chat about 1:1 coaching?

Jesus saw people in their helplessness and confusion, and He had compassion. What would it look like for us to fully receive that compassion and allow it to fuel our mission? Lead Pastor Jason Gore looks back on 2023 and forward to what's in store for 2024.--Every year at Hope, we take a moment to look back through the past year and highlight what we've experienced and accomplished. We also paint a vision for what the next year will be like for us as a church. What has the last year looked like for us at Hope, and what are we looking forward to in this next year? Near the end of the year, we do three things: 1. Celebrate what God has done through this church family 2. Evaluate where we are as a church family 3. Look ahead to what God has for us in the coming yearMatthew 9:35 (NLT)Jesus was with the people.Matthew 9:36 (NLT)Jesus had compassion on the people.Our God is a God of compassion.Matthew 9:37-38 (NLT)Jesus told them to pray. Pray for more workers.Matthew 10:1, 5a, 7-8 (NLT)Jesus made His disciples the answer to the prayer He told them to pray. Jesus sends those who understand His compassion to go to the ones who need compassion.Two things we need to learn from this passage: 1. Jesus has compassion for us in our brokenness. 2. We are led to show that compassion to the world around us.Compassion fuels the mission.Compassion should move us to prayer, and that prayer should lead to action.Who We Are – Our mission as a church is to love people where they are and encourage them to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Strengthen families by investing in marriage, parenting and youth. Equip and empower our church to be missionaries in everyday life. Meet the needs of our community before they come to us.

Social media has become an integral part of modern life, but it can have detrimental effects on the mental health of young men. One key reason is the constant comparison with others that social media encourages. Young men often see idealized versions of their peers' lives, which can lead to feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem. Moreover, the culture of seeking validation through likes and comments can create a dependency on external approval, which can be damaging to one's self-worth. Additionally, the exposure to unrealistic body standards and toxic masculinity ideals prevalent on social media can contribute to body image issues and unhealthy behaviors.On today's episode, Josh and Casey attempt to do a week-long detox. providing a break from the constant pressure to perform and compare oneself to others is just what the doctor ordered! To start the guys describe the challenge including what their most-used apps currently are and how much they use them per day. Next, Casey talks about how dopamine rushes affect you and what the most common sources are. Continuing forward the guys show their screen time average before debating what a bad amount of screen time is and why there are generational differences in the harms of social media. The guys then get into some screen time statistics and which apps are eating away your free time. Switching gears Casey talks about the dopamine addiction process, especially in kids and what a dopamine detox really is. Next, Josh discusses how cutting out dating apps effected him before the guys finish off with some solutions such as managing your time spent and quitting bad habits.Timestamps:0:00 - Intro0:36 - Challenge Description1:38 - Josh's most-used apps2:45 - Casey's most-used apps5:00 - The Guys' daily app averages6:58 - How dopamine affects us10:10 - Dopamine sources14:09 - The Guys' screen time averages15:04 - What's a bad amount of screen time?18:32 - Generational differences21:48 - Screen time statistics25:47 - Loss of time28:23 - Is YouTube bad?30:57 - Dopamine addiction process34:57 - Dopamine detox reality36:15 - Dating app effects38:24 - Evaluate your time spent39:24 - How to quit40:55 - Goals with this challenge____________________________________________________________________________Full, video episodes and clips available on YouTube (@SharedExps)!

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Talking through depression: The cost-effectiveness of psychotherapy in LMICs, revised and expanded, published by JoelMcGuire on November 28, 2023 on The Effective Altruism Forum. This is the summary of the report with additional images (and some new text to explain them) The full 90+ page report (and a link to its 80+ page appendix) is on our website. Summary This report forms part of our work to conduct cost-effectiveness analyses of interventions and charities based on their effect on subjective wellbeing, measured in terms of wellbeing-adjusted life years ( WELLBYs). This is a working report that will be updated over time, so our results may change. This report aims to achieve six goals, listed below: 1. Update our original meta-analysis of psychotherapy in low- and middle-income countries. In our updated meta-analysis we performed a systematic search, screening and sorting through 9390 potential studies. At the end of this process, we included 74 randomised control trials (the previous analysis had 39). We find that psychotherapy improves the recipient's wellbeing by 0.7 standard deviations (SDs), which decays over 3.4 years, and leads to a benefit of 2.69 (95% CI: 1.54, 6.45) WELLBYs. This is lower than our previous estimate of 3.45 WELLBYs ( McGuire & Plant, 2021b) primarily because we added a novel adjustment factor of 0.64 (a discount of 36%) to account for publication bias. Figure 1: Distribution of the effects for the studies in the meta-analysis, measured in standard deviations change (Hedges' g) and plotted over time of measurement. The size of the dots represents the sample size of the study. The lines connecting dots indicate follow-up measurements of specific outcomes over time within a study. The average effect is measured 0.37 years after the intervention ends. We discuss the challenges related to integrating unusually long follow-ups in Sections 4.2 and 12 in the report. 2. Update our original estimate of the household spillover effects of psychotherapy. We collected 5 (previously 2) RCTs to inform our estimate of household spillover effects. We now estimate that the average household member of a psychotherapy recipient benefits 16% as much as the direct recipient (previously 38%). See McGuire et al. ( 2022b) for our previous report-length treatment of household spillovers. 3. Update our original cost-effectiveness analysis of StrongMinds, an NGO that provides group interpersonal psychotherapy in Uganda and Zambia. We estimate that a $1,000 donation results in 30 (95% CI: 15, 75) WELLBYs, a 52% reduction from our previous estimate of 62 (see our changelog website page). The cost per person treated for StrongMinds has declined to $63 (previously $170). However, the estimated effect of StrongMinds has also decreased because of smaller household spillovers, StrongMinds-specific characteristics and evidence which suggest smaller-than-average effects, and our inclusion of a discount for publication bias. The only completed RCT of StrongMinds is the long anticipated study by Baird and co-authors, which has been reported to have found a "small" effect (another RCT is underway). However, this study is not published, so we are unable to include its results and unsure of its exact details and findings. Instead, we use a placeholder value to account for this anticipated small effect as our StrongMinds-specific evidence. 4. Evaluate the cost-effectiveness of Friendship Bench, an NGO that provides individual problem solving therapy in Zimbabwe. We find a promising but more tentative initial cost-effectiveness estimate for Friendship Bench of 58 (95% CI: 27, 151) WELLBYs per $1,000. Our analysis of Friendship Bench is more tentative because our evaluation of their programme and implementation has been more shallow. It has 3 published RCTs which we use to info...

Ryan gives his thoughts on the recent OpenAI fiasco including the firing of CEO Sam Altman. He talks about the impact he thinks this will have as well as revealing the reasons behind the firing of Sam Altman. Ryan also talks about how to create a business that isn't over-reliant on one AI model and the steps you can take to protect yourself operationally. Join 2,500+ readers getting weekly practical guidance to scale themselves and their companies using Artificial Intelligence and Revenue Cheat Codes. Explore becoming Superhuman here: https://superhumanrevenue.beehiiv.com/ KEY TAKEAWAYS After being fired by OpenAI, Sam was offered a job in AI research at Microsoft. Shortly after he was fired, 700 of the 800 OpenAI employees issued a letter to the board threatening to quit. Ryan believes Sam was fired due to safety. That risks were identified, and Sam wasn't open and communicative about these. Some companies are already heavily reliant on OpenAI and if they were to fold or go bust this would impact them severely. It's essential to not rely on one AI model for your business as many scenarios could negatively impact your business, exactly like the situations currently occurring because of the OpenAI issues. Create a prompt library so if you have to pivot from one AI model to another you have all your data and research to hand to use across any language model. If you are looking at leveraging anything AI internally then make sure you leverage the best capabilities of various AI models. Evaluate where you are at with your current use and dependency on particular AI models, including tools. Create solutions moving forward that leverage an agnostic approach towards models. Understand the differences between closed-source and open-source AI models, effectively leveraging what will work best for you. BEST MOMENTS "We still don't truly understand the reason and know why” “Sounds like Microsoft still want to work with OpenAI” “There's talk of customers trying to pull out, of partners trying to pull out” “You want to have a model agnostic solution or model agnostic solution to integrating AI” “We're early on, this is a highly unregulated environment” Ryan Staley Founder and CEO Whale Boss email@example.com www.ryanstaley.io Saas, Saas growth, Scale, Business Growth, B2b Saas, Saas Sales, Enterprise Saas, Business growth strategy, founder, ceo: https://www.whalesellingsystem.com/closingsecretsThis show was brought to you by Progressive Media

We've been looking ahead to the new year in recent episodes, but today we will address the fact that not everyone feels excited about the new year. Some of you have had a tough year and need time to process or heal from it. Or, maybe you are in a big season of doubt or confusion as an artist. All of this can impact how we feel going into a new year. Join us for Episode 56 of the Thriving Artists Podcast, How to Anticipate A Great Year Ahead (Even When You Have Your Doubts), as we discuss a few simple suggestions for bringing some positive anticipation into your life this time of year, whether you are feeling excited or not. Jamie and Kaylan's Tips for Anticipating a Great Year Ahead: Enter into Deeper Awareness: Do some reflection and write about your past year. Writing how you really feel and reflecting with honesty can help you find a lot of gratitude. This can bring you into a deeper understanding for where you are currently at with things in your life. Set Firmer Boundaries: Many of us struggle with stressful anticipation and doubt because we are actually experiencing a lack of boundaries or security in our present moment. Ask yourself where you need to set some firmer boundaries and what is contributing to your stress right now. Evaluate where you can carve out more time and space for yourself. Move Forward with Self-Compassion: You have done, and you are doing SO MUCH dear artist. You deserve a medal, a gold star, and a cash prize just for being an artist. It is such hard work. Please be kind to yourself this time of year and always. Recognize that you are human and you deserve softness and grace and understanding. As always, we are here for you, we are cheering you on, and we believe in the work you are doing as thriving artists! Join the Thrive Together Network to plug into our programming for 2024!

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequencey and vibration.“~ Nikola TeslaThis Habits 2 Goals episode is FREE for ALL subscribers.What's the first clue that the latest habits “Gooroo” knows little about habit development? They teach the idea that doing a behavior for a month or thirty days – is the key to habit development. Performing a behavior for thirty days is helpful, but it misses a core, fundamental precept of habit development: RHYTHM“Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.” ~ Maya AngelouWhen I set out to write The Habit Factor®, the first question I pondered, researched and even queried Google was, “Why do habits exist?”Google served up a grand total of ZERO answers – nothing. (See the book for a screenshot)After weeks of contemplating that question, the answer revealed itself. It was elemental: All life is energy. Energy has a predisposition for pattern and rhythm; consider sound waves, ocean waves, the rhythm of the seasons, high tide, low tide, universal planetary rhythms, etc.By understanding this basic idea, anyone can intentionally leverage the rhythm of the week – using four-week increments – to track and reassess the habits they'd like to cultivate.ENTER: BodybuildingThe world of bodybuilding is often associated with sculpted physiques and unwavering dedication. Beyond the physical transformations, there lies a treasure trove of insights into habit formation and the art of self-discipline. Bodybuilders, through their rigorous training routines and meticulous tracking, offer valuable lessons that can be applied to building positive habits.The Rhythm of the WeekJust as bodybuilders structure their workout schedules around specific muscle groups each day of the week, we can adopt a similar approach to habit formation. By dedicating specific times or days to certain habits, we create a rhythm that becomes ingrained in our daily routine. P.A.R.R.: A Habit-Building MethodologyThe P.A.R.R. methodology, which stands for Plan, Act, Record, and Reassess, perfectly aligns with the habit-building strategies employed by bodybuilders.* Plan: Clearly define the habit you want to establish and establish both the “Target Days” and the “Minimum Success Criteria.” (More info here)* Act: By following your plan, you act on your “Target Days”, meeting your “Minimum Success Criteria.” (What happens if you don't? See above link)* Record: Track your actions against your plan and add comments. Comments are essential and help to reinforce your intention (plan).* Reassess: Reassessment is crucial. Evaluate your habit-tracking effort after four weeks. If you are 85% or better against your targets, you should “raise the bar.” (See above link).HabitStrength™: Building MomentumJust as bodybuilders gradually increase the weight they lift to build muscle strength, we can apply the concept of HabitStrength™ to habit formation. By gradually increasing the “Frequency per week” and/or the “Minimum Success Criteria” (duration), we strengthen the habit's strength and its automaticity.Leg Day: A Metaphor for Habit BuildingThe term "Leg Day" represents a plan put into action by following the rhythm of the weekWe can approach habit formation with the same level of intention and understanding.

In this episode, David welcomes back two guests from earlier seasons – orthopaedic surgeons Dr. Sanjeev Bhatia and Dr. Matthew Provencher. Sanjeev and Matt join David to discuss a new venture they've founded, along with David, called The Doctors Agents (TDA). Sanjeev and Matt begin with how they identified a need in the marketplace for physicians to know more and achieve better results when evaluating and negotiating jobs. They discuss their personal stories and those they have seen from colleagues and fellows they train and delve into the reasons many physicians tend to evaluate jobs on their own, without the benefit of data, tools or professionals. Sanjeev introduces TDA and describes how it helps physicians seeking their first job out of training or changing jobs. David explains a bit about two on-demand tools that TDA provides 24/7/365 – a financial model for evaluating one or more jobs financially and an AI-based contract review. Matt comments on the importance of TDA's work to vet experts in medical contract law and financial planning as part of their offering for physicians. David and Sanjeev then discuss how the financial model and AI contract review tools could be valuable even for physicians who are not changing jobs – from helping them map out their financial plan and dealing with changes at the practice or hospital to taking advantage of entrepreneurial opportunities as they arise. David wraps up with a review of the basic pricing for TDA's various offerings in their Beta phase. Learn more and listent to this and past episodes by visiting www.physicianswealthpodcast.com.

She expanded the corps of Veterans Law Judges, recommending and onboarding over 70 new Veterans Law Judges and expanding the Board's budget by more than $100 million. She also championed and implemented the Appeals Modernization Act (AMA) appeals process putting veterans at the center of the appeals process giving them choice, control, and clarity in the appeals process.Chairman Mason delivered results increasing and improving access and outcomes for veterans and their families by nearly doubling the number of hearings held and decisions issued in less than 5 years and driving the resolution of legacy appeals from over 472,000 to less than 96,000 during her tenure.

You can find it at a football game. You can find it in a concert. There are thousands of people drawn to a gathering, and they're talking excitedly about some star they've come to see or hear. Hands and voices are raised in praise and all eyes are on the star, or the stars. In fact, if you want to get people really agitated, use the name of their favorite musician in vain. Yeah, or say something negative about their favorite athlete. Uh-huh. I mean, people who might be relatively passive about minor issues like nuclear war, or abortion, or people starving to death are majorly aggressive about their heroes. I mean, we're excited about our favorite musician, or politician, or sports star, even our favorite spiritual celebrity...maybe too excited. I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A Word With You today about "Misguided Worship." Our word for today from the Word of God is found in Luke 4:5-8. I think you'll find the passage familiar; it finds Jesus in the wilderness just before He launches into His public ministry. And here is this cosmic confrontation between the Son of God and the enemy of God - the devil. And the story I want to point us to goes something like this, "The devil led Jesus to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. He said to him, 'I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. So if you worship me, it will all be yours.' Jesus answered, 'It is written: Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.'" Well, the issue in this, and it's the second temptation of Jesus. It's the issue I want us to look at for a couple of minutes today. The issue was worship. Jesus and the devil obviously both know that we're wired for worship. We're just built that way. We're instinctively worshippers. We want to lose ourselves in someone; find out all we can about that person that we lose ourselves in; identify ourselves enthusiastically with them. Talk about what we know about that person; tell about what we feel about that person. But it's God alone that we're built to wrap our lives around... to think about most of the time. That's why Jesus said when given another worship option, "Only worship God; only serve God." Sometimes I think we use up a lot of our - can I call it worship-ness - on someone human. Oh, we don't call it worship. But a lot of our thinking, our loyalty, our time, our energy, our passion, our money, our enthusiasm gets taken over by our favorite music group, or by an obsession with sports that finds us talking about our favorites most of the time, or even a politician. There was an article in a New York area newspaper that had this headline, "Sport takes its place among the religions of America." Sometimes we can actually inadvertently worship some Christian teacher or personality. We quote them more than the Bible. We've gotten unbalanced without realizing it. We've got to guard this worship thing we've got. It's easy to become such a fan of someone on earth that the King of Kings gets pushed to the side - gets our leftovers. The devil's strategy is to just get our worshiping redirected. Because he knows we're going to worship something. So let me recommend that we begin our day getting overwhelmed by Jesus Christ; focusing all of our worship-ness, our fan mail so to speak, on Him. Evaluate...maybe are you a little too excited about some earthly star? See, you're wired for worship, but save it for the only One who deserves it.
