In this episode, Dave and Jamison answer these questions: Questions I'm a technical lead and I'm planning to take the usual advice and quit my job. The catch is, I have a not-yet-vested interest in staying until the new year. My manager mentioned in passing that he's doing resource planning for my team for next year. Should I indicate that I'll be looking for work in the new year? I feel like I have a guarded relationship with my manager, so I don't feel like it's a safe space to say just anything. But I know it would be helpful for him to know that I'm leaving. I work at a consulting company and I've been outsourced to one of the biggest banks to work on their iOS application. My problem is every time I propose a solution, it bounces back and is never accepted. In my opinion our way of doing things is wrong and I lost motivation and enthusiasm to work on the project. I shared my concerns and thoughts and always got the pat on my back but never found a solution. In these kind of situations, how do you motivate yourself to keep going? Should I look at it as improving my people management skills or should I quit? Thank you both of you. I don't feel alone when I listen your podcast and I'm simply thankful your existence.

Games are everywhere, but why exactly do we play them? It seems counterintuitive, to artificially invent goals and obstacles just so we can struggle to achieve them. (And in some games, like Twister, the fun is in losing, even though you're supposed to try to win.) C. Thi Nguyen is a philosopher who has developed a theory of games as an art form whose medium is agency. Within each game, we have defined goals, powers, and choices, and by playing different games we can experiment with different forms of agency. A dark side of this idea is to be found in “gamification” — turning ordinary-life activities into a game. Games give us clarity of values, and that clarity can be seductive but misleading, leading people to turn to conspiracy theories about the real world.Support Mindscape on Patreon.C. Thi Nguyen received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of California, Los Angeles. He is currently associate professor of Philosophy at the University of Utah. He has written public philosophy for venues such as Aeon and The New York Times, and is an editor of the aesthetics blog Aesthetics for Birds. He was the recipient of the 2020 Article Prize from the American Philosophical Association.

There's nothing more vital to survival than water. “Water water everywhere, and not a drop to drink!”, said the Ancient Mariner, in the poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Besides widespread water shortage, too much of America's water is undrinkable. From big cities and suburbs to the rural heartland, chemicals linked to cancer, heart disease, obesity, birth defects, and lowered IQ routinely spill from our taps. The tragedy is that existing technologies could launch a new age of clean, healthy, and safe tap water for only a few dollars a week per person. Scrupulously researched, Troubled Water: What's Wrong with What We Drink (Thomas Dunne, 2020) is full of shocking stories about contaminated water found throughout the U.S. and about the everyday heroes who have successfully forced changes in the quality and safety of our drinking water. Contamination is not the only critical water issue.  The U.S. government predicts that forty of our fifty states-and 60 percent of the earth's land surface-will soon face alarming gaps between available water and the growing demand for it. Without action, food prices will rise, economic growth will slow, and political instability is likely to follow. Let There Be Water illustrates how Israel can serve as a model for the United States and countries everywhere by showing how to blunt the worst of the coming water calamities. Even with 60 percent of its country made of desert, Israel has not only solved its water problem; it also had an abundance of water. Israel even supplies water to its neighbors-the Palestinians and the Kingdom of Jordan-every day. Based on meticulous research and hundreds of interviews, Let There Be Water reveals the methods and techniques of the often-offbeat inventors who enabled Israel to lead the world in cutting-edge water technology.

That's a struggle many have faced recently, with half of Americans saying they've lost touch with at least one friend during the pandemic. It can be sad, but is falling out of touch with friends normal? How many relationships should we maintain, and what are the different kinds of friendships we need anyways?

Let's Chat about John's Ideas

Beyond Retirement

John spoke of a lot of things, but his main focus was the idea that we need to establish office hours for ourselves in retirement. What he meant by that is that we need to have time to tune into the things going on in our lives – the taxes, the groceries, what's going to be for dinner, what should we do this weekend, etc – but we also need to have time to tune OUT those things and the other “static” in our heads and just do nothing.         I agree with this idea completely! The majority of people I know have a LOT of things going on in their lives, so many different parts that all need attention from us. It's really important to take the time to tune it all out for awhile and just relax. From the time we get up till the moment our head hits the pillow at night, most of us have so many thoughts running through our head that we have trouble keeping them all straight. As we age, people laugh about “senior moments” and about our memory being the first thing to go. It's no wonder our memory fails us sometimes; we're always trying to remember so many things. That's why I'm a big proponent of making lists. It frees up that valuable space in your brain for other things that are more important than whatever is going on the list. We don't have to have lists in our head when they can be on paper or on our phone.         The idea of establishing office hours is a wise one. We can set aside time that is specifically for us – no uninvited guests, no clients without appointments, no urgent activities. It's time that we can do nothing. Whether you choose to “do nothing” by meditating, by walking alone along a quiet road or in a forest, or by simply sitting silently in your favourite chair, staring out the window, is up to you. The point is to be silent and do nothing. No scrolling through your phone, surfing the web, no reading a book, no conversation. Just you, alone with yourself. It doesn't have to be a long time; even 30 min a day would be enough. I imagine a few of you are cringing at the idea of spending quiet time, without electronics, just “being still.”         But, as John said, we've all got a creative, magical part inside us that has hopes and dreams. Many of us push those hopes and dreams aside as we get involved in our lives. But that part of us doesn't really sleep, so if you give yourself time to get in touch with it, you can pull out some of the hopes and dreams that you stuffed down for so long. You can remember the things that excited you, the things that spurred you on when you were younger.         An interesting point that John made was that we are the only creature on Earth that can dream and then wake up and bring those dreams to reality. And it's a shame that so many of us don't take the time to really get in touch with those dreams and pull them out to make them real.         Many people I've talked to over the course of this podcast and as I journey toward retirement have said that they want to give back, to help others the best way they can. This is wonderful; I believe that deep down everyone has the same purpose – to help others live a great life. And I think many of us forget that purpose, or maybe haven't realized yet that this is truly what they want. I'm not saying everyone wants to be a coach or a missionary or build homes for underprivileged people. What I mean is that whatever we're doing, once we get past the superficial reasons that we do what we do (which, by the way, is generally to make money to survive, and then to make more money to live the life we think we want) we're really doing it to make someone's life better. The doctors and dentists and other healthcare people do this in an obvious way, but the plumber makes lives better by fixing leaks and installing toilets. The farmer makes lives...

Over-worked or over-entertained? Our humanity gives us the joint gifts of both activity and passivity. We act and we are acted upon. But how do we balance and mediate these states? How do we cultivate long practices and habits that help us to inhabit the space between activity and passivity, bringing them together in a beautiful agency?Poet and linguist Alysia Harris joins Matt Croasmun for a discussion of that space between active and passive in human life—bringing the concepts of wonder, awareness/attention, patient receptivity to the natural world and to God, bearing witness to the autonomy and action of the other, and how she cultivates and meditates on these things in her own life.Show NotesNorman Wirzba, This Sacred Life: Humanity's Place in a Wounded WorldActive life vs passive lifeIntermediate category between activity and passivity: attentive awarenessActive receptivity and bearing witnessHuman beings enacting and reactingWitness as perception and responseCarl Sagan, Robin Kimmerer, Timothy WilburnWonder as a mediating emotion between active and passive"I'm not the entire system."Granting autonomy to a natural systemMaking the right impact through granting the sovereignty of the otherAdam and Eve as gardeners—beauty vs productivityGenesis: "Avad and Shamar"—Till and Keep, Serve and ProtectRestrain, observe, attend, and magnify"Me and God"Capitalism, scarcity mentality, and "enough"Ping-ponging between over-worked and over-entertainment—deficient visions of activity and deficient visions of passivityMark 4: Parable of the Sower.

In this solo episode, Kurt Francom discusses five reasons behind the development of negative culture within the church, and what we can each do to recognize it and take action to stimulate positive culture. Highlights 4:45 Church culture is the monster in the room. 6:15 Why does negative church culture exist? 7:00 Church culture is creating a never-ending judgment loop. 9:15 Reason one - Lack of ability. It's not about lack of motivation. It's an ability problem. 12:30 Sometimes it's not for lack of trying but lack of skills. Some people have the skills to teach, lead, or show empathy. Some try but they have to develop these skills. 15:00 Reason two - Negative mindsets. Our mindset is the lens through which we see the world. 17:00 Open mindsets create psychological safety. Psychological safety roots out negative church culture. Everyone feels safe to express opinions and feelings. 18:00 Examples of leaders that have different mindsets and how it affects those in the ward. 22:10 Reason three - Misunderstanding doctrine. Embracing false doctrines as truth. 25:50 Example of misunderstanding doctrine. The push for youth to serve missions can lead to people misunderstanding that missions are a saving ordinance. 27:35 Reason four - Lack of exposure. Expose yourself to a diversity of lifestyles and hear people's stories to gain a higher level of empathy. Many times we project our life experience onto others. 32:00 Seeking exposure to different types of people and gaining more empathy is not a passive exercise. It's a very proactive effort. This is why it's so difficult to perpetuate a positive church culture. 34:15 Ideas of how to gain more exposure. Ask people their stories. Exposing ourselves to other people's experience gives us so much love for them. 36:50 Reason five - Lack of self awareness. Take the time to know what kind of leader you are. Gain a deeper understanding of yourself and how other people perceive you. People perceive us differently than we perceive ourselves. 42:15 What do we do with these five reasons?

Could the modern world be built on the back of our craving for an addictive substance? Matthew Sweet marshals historians Mimi Goodall and Dexnell Peters, and artist and theorist Ayesha Hameed, to see how far we can push the idea that our desire for sugar led to the development of new forms of agriculture, as well as slavery, empire and capitalism, indeed the initiation of a new era in the earth's geological history and climate. And they consider how we can think through such massive, world-historical shifts. Ayesha Hameed is Co-Programme Leader for the PhD in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London.

About This Episode Earlier this year, as a warm-up to my last live webinar before going on maternity leave, I did a series of live Q&As on Instagram where I popped in daily to answer your burning questions about dating. As a woman living in a small town in Wisconsin where everyone basically knows each other, Abigail wanted to know how she should navigate dating multiple men. This is rule #1 of the “10 Rules of Being Claimed,” which is “You Create Your Dating Funnel, Men Compete.” What should she do, for example, to avoid things getting awkward if they all end up at the same event together and bump into each other? Then there was Lara who has been following my advice about letting men lead in dating when it comes to making plans but said she felt “lazy” not reaching out in between dates and “leaving all the work to him.” How much initiation is enough to let him know you're interested and when is it okay to take charge as a woman? Join us as we discuss: Why we should never date just one man at a time (competition is completely natural) How to shift our perspective when it comes to dating (it's like “shopping for shoes,” ladies) Being careful with intimacy during dating (why sex = attachment for women) The dating game & how to play it so that it's actually fun (no manipulative tips and tricks required) Paying attention to what feels good in your body more than any dating “rules” (even mine) Ideas for how to connect & engage with men in a playful, feminine way (without chasing or leading them)   LINKS Your Dating Frustrations: Symptoms vs. Root Causes & How to Fix Them 3 Things to Do to Let Go of The Drama and The Story During Dating Playing the Dating Game With Intention & Ease P.S.

If you want to get back to basics and have a refresher course on the fundamentals of communication, speaking, and leadership, this episode is for you. My guest today is Joel Schwartzberg. You may remember him from one of our most popular episodes, How to Make a Point That Sticks. Joel is a leadership communications coach and author and today he brings his tips to help you create a "language of leadership." Joel's key message: "The most powerful tool you have as a leader—to inform, engage, and inspire—is your voice. Yet all too often, our words fall flat; we get caught in our head, fail to truly understand our audience, or simply flub the landing. But it's our words and awareness of their impact that make the difference between simply managing teams and inspiring them to do their best work. " We discuss: Why some women come across as aggressive if they are straight forward The importance of gender neutral language Ideas around what to do if you are interrupted in a meeting and how to deal with that Why leaders need to focus their communication on inspiration, not just information The importance of shifting language from merely sharing problems to solving them Do's and don'ts for conveying empathy and hope Easy ways leaders can improve the effectiveness of meetings through communication The three simple words that quickly reveal if you're getting your point across or not More about Joel: Joel Schwartzberg is a leadership communications coach whose clients include American Express, Blue Cross Blue Shield, State Farm Insurance, the Brennan Center for Justice, and Comedy Central. Joel's articles on effective communication have appeared in Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, and Toastmaster magazine. He is the author of Get to the Point! Sharpen Your Message and Make Your Words Matter, which Seth Godin calls “a manifesto for giving talks that make a difference,” and The Language of Leadership: How to Engage and Inspire Your Team, which Kevin Eikenberry says “will make your communication more purposeful, meaningful, and inspirational.” Learn more about Joel and his coaching practice here.

Trying different things can turn out well, and it can turn out not so well. The three tips I'm sharing today eventually became an essential part of growing my business. Remember that in the startup world, it's essential to find the perfect growth recipe for YOUR business. What works for me may or may not work for you. That said, these recommendations are tried and true by many business owners and I hope they work for you! Episode Highlights 1:23 - The importance of getting specific with your target audience and how to go about doing it 4:34 - Make sure you have a documented process of how you've sold in the past, then go out and see if you can find someone to sell for you, even part-time, to amp up your pipeline. 5:10 LinkedIn is the easiest platform to grow on without putting a bunch of money into ads. 5:20 You have to be willing to get out there and be super consistent. And you have to put in the time to grow an audience and to make connections and really build a community.  More about the show: ​​http://www.jackiehermes.com/podcast (www.jackiehermes.com/podcast) Hit me up! https://the-art-of-entrepreneurship.captivate.fm/linkedin (LinkedIn) https://the-art-of-entrepreneurship.captivate.fm/instagram (Instagram) https://the-art-of-entrepreneurship.captivate.fm/tiktok (TikTok) https://the-art-of-entrepreneurship.captivate.fm/website (Website)

Those of us who think that that the laws of physics underlying everyday life are completely known tend to also think that consciousness is an emergent phenomenon that must be compatible with those laws. To hold such a position in a principled way, it's important to have a clear understanding of “emergence” and when it happens. Anil Seth is a leading researcher in the neuroscience of consciousness, who has also done foundational work (often in collaboration with Lionel Barnett) on what emergence means. We talk about information theory, entropy, and what they have to do with how things emerge.Support Mindscape on Patreon.Anil Seth received his D.Phil in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from the University of Sussex. He is currently a professor of cognitive and computational neuroscience at Sussex, as well as co-director of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science. He has served as the president of the Psychology Section of the British Science Association, and is Editor-in-Chief of the journal Neuroscience of Consciousness.

Friends, you may be someone who gets a lot of ideas. Ideas for a course, consultations, makeup lines... all great ideas. But there is a difference between a good idea and a God idea. One single God idea will trump a ton of good ideas, every time. Let's talk about what a God idea looks like and how we can know which ideas are going to bear the fruit that a good idea can't bring to the table.
