HVAC School - For Techs, By Techs
Trevor Matthews returns to the podcast to talk about growing in productivity and confidence as a tech to avoid feeling stuck in your career. They talk about personal development within your organization and in communities or training courses beyond your organization. Confidence and productivity work hand in hand, and techs can grow in both areas when they prioritize the one that matters most to them. In many cases, repetition helps build confidence, especially in the trades and other professions where you work with your hands. Scheduling is another strategy that improves your productivity, which can boost your confidence in the long run. As humans, we tend to fixate on fears and problems. We can build our confidence by reframing our fears, giving ourselves (and others) grace when we make errors, and focusing on building our skills to work through challenges. It's also important to find people in your organization who will uplift you, not hold you back. Developing unhealthy habits is a possible consequence of over-focusing on work, and it could be detrimental to your personal and professional life. Your physical and mental health are also important to your productivity and progress. Trevor and Bryan also discuss: Using a calendar to manage productivity Learning new skills to build confidence Communicating with your employer and building a relationship Training programs Self-assessment and going out of your comfort zone Caring about yourself to care about others Some of Bryan and Trevor's favorite books on the topic: Soundtracks by Jon Acuff Atomic Habits by James Clear Good to Great by Jim Collins Check out Trevor's Refrigeration Mentor program at https://refrigerationmentor.com/.

This episode is truly special, and I'm thrilled to introduce my amazing guest, Nancy Paton. Nancy and I have known each other since we were kids, sharing a lot in common. We both come from Polish families in Australia and have faced similar struggles growing up as children of immigrants. Our parents faced language barriers, financial hardships, and a sense of isolation from other cultures. But Nancy's story takes it to the next level. At the age of 11, her father left, leaving her with lasting wounds and challenges. She carried the weight of those struggles and wounds until she made the brave decision to leave Australia and embark on an incredible journey in her twenties. From New York to London, Saudi Arabia to Abu Dhabi, she's been all over, soaking up different cultures and finding healing, peace, and purpose along the way. In this interview, Nancy shares her inspiring story, delving into how her faith and experiences, particularly in the Middle East, have transformed her life and taught her how to forgive and let go of the past. Join us and discover the power of embracing diverse cultures and opening your mind to new experiences. Tune in and get ready for a dose of inspiration that will change your perspective forever.

Mind Love ♡ Modern Mindfulness
We will learn: Why we remember some things and forget others. How your listening type determines how to process information and how to reduce mind-wandering. A new understanding of procrastination and how to overcome it. Have you ever wondered why some people seem to learn and retain information so much faster and easier than others? Why some people can breeze through books and lectures while others can't stay focused for a full paragraph? It's also our ability to focus. Which is something that I think our current ways of life are starting to destroy. Focus works kind of like a muscle. Use it or lose it. So the less we're willing to practice and engage in learning, the harder it will be, and the harder it is, the less we want to do it. But what if there's a way to outsmart your own brain and make learning easier and faster? That's what we're learning about today. Our guest is Dan Willingham. He is Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia. His research is mostly about the application of cognitive psychology to K-16 education. He is the author of several books, including “Outsmart Your Brain: Why Learning is Hard and How You Can Make it Easy.” Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Kaisa Martiskainen: Product Owner collaboration, and the importance of building relationships in Scrum Read the full Show Notes and search through the world's largest audio library on Scrum directly on the Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast website: http://bit.ly/SMTP_ShowNotes. In this episode of the podcast, Kaisa shares her experience as a rotating scrum master at the start of her journey. She was eager to be a good scrum master and saw every problem as an impediment she had to remove, which led her to act as a messenger between the Product Owner and the team. Also because the team was not comfortable with the Product Owner's communication style. Kaisa provides some tips for handling such situations, such as pausing and asking questions instead of immediately rescuing the team, and asking who is in the best position to solve the issue when the team asks for help. She emphasizes that in many cases, the scrum master is not the best person to solve the issues the team is facing. Kaisa also suggests building a relationship between the team and the Product Owner, such as by organizing a happy hour. She highlights the anti-pattern of communicating only asynchronously and recommends the use of synchronous communication methods to build better relationships within the team. Recovering from failure, or difficult moments is a critical skill for Scrum Masters. Not only because of us, but also because the teams, and stakeholders we work with will also face these moments!

Someone recently asked me about my experience and credentials related to my business, and it set me into self-reflection mode to consider what factors have gotten me to where I am now over the last few years. And now I'm sharing that reflection with you, because I truly believe that what I realized could also change your life. In this episode, I am sharing about what I've decided to call The Saturation Effect - the effect that being completely saturated by one particular thing can have on changing your life. I get into how The Saturation Effect has impacted both my growth as a business coach and CEO, as well as my healing journey. I also share how you can start to implement The Saturation Effect to change aspects of your own life. In this episode, we cover… Learning, doing, and being to create lasting change A summary of my own experience over the last 1.5 years The Saturation Effect: considering the amount and frequency of saturation What saturation has looked like in my own healing journey Why saturation is the best way to influence our habits Examples of where and how saturation can occur (including masterminds) Quotes "The Saturation Effect means that if you surround yourself enough with one thing, you will not be able to ignore it and it will inevitably infiltrate your thoughts, behaviors, your way of being, and ultimately eventually change who you are at your core. " "Most people try to change something - a habit, maybe a belief, a way of being, maybe it is a big life change quitting your job and starting a business. Most people try to change by overcoming something or forcing/pushing through. And if that even works for a little bit, it never lasts. It never lasts, and it never changes you at a deep core level." "I want the change you desire to become inevitable. And no amount of force and hard work can change who you are at your core. I believe that wholeheartedly. The changing at your core and the being - it only comes by saturating your existence so that you cannot help but change by learning, doing and being all that you're surrounded by, which is what you want to become."

TimeOut With The SportsDr. Podcast
Disappointment to a noble soul is like cold water to a burning metal. It strengthens, tempers, and intensifies but never destroys it. It has been said that life is a complicated path filled with a variety of events, both pleasant and challenging. Hence, it is often through adversity that we truly discover who we are and what we are capable of. Consequently, the challenges we have faced and the hardships that we overcame have shaped our character, resilience, and determination to strive for victory. Life circumstances sometimes happen differently than we want them to. It will often cause us to see our weaknesses and limitations. However, we must learn to embrace our failures and keep holding on to why we remain committed to our pursuits of success. As we continue chasing successes, we must never fear setbacks and mistakes. We must also seek guidance and help from others who have encountered the same situations that we might also be in. Let us learn from their examples and never be afraid to face an unfavorable situation while striving to achieve a dream. As our guest speaker believes, "Dreams never stop; they only change."

Key Takeaways: "If you want to do something, you have to be smart and work hard for it." – Christian Beatty "My father didn't understand baseball. He wasn't even a baseball player. He was a football guy, but he understood the formula to success, and that was hard work." – Christian Beatty "I'm thankful for my parents being in my life because they were working together to provide. I saw the sacrifices which instilled me to continue to push past because their sacrifices became my 'Why.'" – Christian Beatty "Having a 'why' is essential to the development of any dream because it keeps you in the game when adversity sets in, when somebody screams in your face that you're not good enough when somebody leaves you off of the top list, and when somebody cuts you from a team. Your why is what's going to keep you in the race." – Christian Beatty "I believed that I was going to be a professional baseball player. I believed in it and wanted it, and I couldn't stop smelling it and tasting it every day. So, I continued to grow, continue to hone my skills." – Christian Beatty "The person that I am today is because of the adversity that set in when I got to real life." – Christian Beatty "You're going to be up, and you're going to be down, but you have to have that winner's mentality. You have to have that championship mentality to keep pushing through the hard parts." – Dr. Derrick Burgess "Vulnerability is the most relatable thing in the world." – Christian Beatty "Never be afraid of failure because, without failure, success becomes nearly impossible." – Christian Beatty "Once failure leaves, wisdom and experience are last." – Christian Beatty "Some of the most breakthrough stories in the world came at the moment of almost giving up. So, that means I have to run towards it because I'm tired of losing and I'm tired of waiting." – Christian Beatty "Don't chase the views; focus on consistency because what you're going to become in pursuit of it is way more valuable than its physical equivalent." – Christian Beatty "You'll be a fool to say that you're going to do it your way because how can you lead yourself to a place you've never been." – Christian Beatty "When you become an expert in something, that's when they're going to pay you top dollar." – Christian Beatty "If I wasn't good enough, wait until this next version. It became a proving ground not just for myself, but I'm going to prove everybody that counted me out wrong and everybody that believes in me right." – Christian Beatty "The moment that you realize that your life changed on a specific day, it's imperative that you start to celebrate that day just like you celebrate a birthday." – Christian Beatty "People can teach you how to throw a fastball, a curveball, they can teach you how to hit the ball, but at some point, you're going to need that mental toughness." – Christian Beatty "Paying for a lesson instead of paying for a bat." – Christian Beatty "Do yourself a favor and take the time to find your next dreams. When a person stops dreaming, they're dead. Dreams never stop; they change. That's what they do." – Christian Beatty "If you're a parent, I need you to prime that old diesel up and get that dream factory going again because your kids are watching you. Find something else that's going to motivate you and drive you because they're watching you whether they tell you or not; they're watching you." – Christian Beatty Connect with Christian "CJ" Beatty: Website: https://cjbeatty.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cjbeatty44/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/motivationalnuggets Twitter: https://twitter.com/cjbeatty44 YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@motivationalnuggets/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/cjbeatty/ Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/2b58S7ZT8JzVscUiE3qu5y?si=A8NfTwvuSJCyJVIWQ-Lqlg&nd=1 Connect with Dr. Derrick Burgess: Website: https://www.drderrickthesportsdr.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drderrickthesportsdr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TimeOut.SportsDr LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/derrick-burgess-72047b246/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHGDu1zT4K_X6PnYELu8weg Email: firstname.lastname@example.org This episode of TimeOut with the SportsDr. is produced by Podcast VAs Philippines - the team that helps podcasters effectively launch and manage their podcasts, so we don't have to.

This Sunday, Pastor Ralph Castillo continued our “We Want You Here” series with his sermon, “This is How We Fight Our Battles.” Learning from the story of the Israelites' victory over the Amalekites in Exodus, we observe three key ways that we, as believers, should fight our battles: (1) We fight for people who are in a fight (2) We fight together for people who are in a fight, and (3) We celebrate the victory–God's way. As believers, we can be confident that when we fight, we do not fight for victory, that instead, we fight from victory because we serve a victorious God.
Truth Telling with Elizabeth DiAlto
While we can all always aim to be kind, loving, compassionate, really conscious and courageous communicators, sometimes our less evolved parts do come out. I recently made some relationship decisions, and they brought up a lot for me around emotional maturity and intelligence. In this episode, I'm unpacking the nuanced considerations and analysis that I've been going through around engaging with people and building intimacy and connection. As always, I share my stories not because I believe my experience is universal and I handle everything perfectly, but because I know some of you will relate to parts, if not all, of these experiences and I hope that they are useful in your own reflection and development, too. In episode 425 of the Embodied Podcast we discuss: (1:04) What the Wild Soul Sacred Body Membership is and who it's for (4:23) A decision I made last week that used up all of my bandwidth for emotional intelligence and maturity (6:17) Learning the lesson of being careful about who you confide in (8:30) My thoughts on unsolicited advice (12:29) The distinction between being evolved and mature (14:42) Feeling cathartic after speaking honestly with certain people in my life (18:22) Why I don't necessarily agree with the concept of ‘if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all' Work with me: Learn more about the Wild Soul Sacred Body Membership (registration closes May 22nd) Special offer: FREE Download: Morning + Evening Rituals FREE Meditation: Connect to Your Wise + Wild Self Stay in touch: NEW!

Intentional Living with Tanya Hale
Learning to advocate for ourselves is a skill that many of us haven't acquired yet, and until we do, we will struggle with self-respect and with having the equal relationships that we desire. When we come to realize that our wants and needs are just as important and valid as anyone else's, we can advocate with more clarity and confidence. Fellow life and divorce coach Samantha Nielsen joins me today in a discussion about what advocating means, why it's important, and how to do it.

The idea of success is often oversimplified. Most believe it is achievable overnight, but nothing can be further from the truth. Success results from years of tenacity and consistently doing the right thing. Brandon Lazar is an entrepreneur who succeeded after ten years of hard work and hustle. Join us as we discuss his journey from selling rocks in kindergarten to owning two businesses in college and how he created a successful exit from his business. We'll hear Brandon talk about the lessons he learned while working as a wildland firefighter that helped him stay prepared for anything and how to leverage the two levers of success - HR and marketing - to manage a high level of turnover. He'll provide insight into creating systems and processes from day one that make the business more attractive to potential investors and share his advice on staying committed even after a failed attempt at selling the business. Finally, he'll reflect on the emotional and financial journey of exiting a business after 15 years, emphasizing the importance of chasing fulfillment over financial freedom. Get ready for an inspiring conversation with Brandon Lazar! [00:01 - 15:21] From Selling Rocks to Fighting Fires Brandon's background and career How Brandon has bootstrapped a business with a single ladder and magnet signs Service business has two levers: HR and marketing/advertising Goal setting and review are essential for getting out of day-to-day operations Calendar to prioritize visionary work over direct labor [15:22 - 21:13] Navigating the Exit Process: How One Entrepreneur Sold Their Business Without a Broker Systemized business from day one to make it more attractive to investors Brandon's first attempt at selling took a year, but he stuck with it and eventually sold successfully [21:14 - 30:33] From Minivan to Millions: Brandon's Journey to Financial Freedom The universe has a plan for us, and we just have to navigate it Brandon shares how he celebrated success with his family The realization that financial freedom is not the only thing to chase [30:35 - 40:02] Learning the Value of Focusing on One Lane at a Time Hourly IQ and Ninja VA Three types of managers: Builder, Fixer, or Maintainer It's better to put people in one lane than to wear multiple hats [40:03 - 41:49] Closing Segment Final words Quotes: "In actuality, my indication of having lived success is you not only have to be doing the right thing. You have to be super intentional and strategic about it. And then chances are it takes ten years to make for an overnight success." - Brandon Lazar "We want to have our calendar, be it Google Calendar or a pen and paper agenda, or whatever it is, but we have to live and die by our calendar. "- Brandon Lazar "The universe has a plan for us, and we're just here to navigate." - Brandon Lazar "If you wear all those hats in the beginning days, chances are anyone could be better at one thing. If you just put them in one lane and you're wearing eight hats, and in eight different lanes, they're going to be better than you because they're able to have more clarity and more focus." - Brandon Lazar Connect with Brandon!

How can you adopt a champion's mindset and unleash your full potential? Champions understand that success doesn't come overnight and they are willing to put in the time, effort, and dedication required to achieve their goals. That is why having a champion's mindset entails having the mental and emotional strength to accomplish your goals and overcome obstacles. Joining us on The Greatness Machine for the second time around, Dr. Jeff Spencer talks about helping athletes, performers, and business leaders achieve their full potential by cultivating a champion's mindset. As a former Olympian, acclaimed chiropractor, and performance coach, Jeff understands that success is not just about physical ability, but also about mental strength, emotional resilience, and a positive attitude.

The connection between our body, mind, and soul is wildly understudied. Yet understanding the connection and communication between the three is vital in changing your life. Inside all of us is a specific language that directs your outcome. This doesn't mean your body is speaking a foreign language, but the language of health is what you speak about yourself and how you speak about the world around you. Think of your language as your perception. That perception creates your reality. Take the language of body fat. If you repeatedly tell yourself, “I'm so fat,” that becomes your perception, creating your reality. It seems crazy, perhaps because we don't want to believe our words have that much control. But they do. What you speak is powerful, creating or reinforcing the story you live. Learning a better language can change your outcome shifting your reality to create health. Inside this podcast, Registered Dietician and mindset coach Cole Berschback of Total Potential shows us how to build a better language in health through learning how to feel, release past hurts and rewrite your story. We also talk about the importance of posture and family systems in health. Learn more: https://thelivingwell.com/300
