[REBROADCAST FROM January 5, 2022] To wrap up the first half of the year, we're revisiting some of our favorite interviews from the last six months. "Don't Look Up," the latest film from writer and director Adam McKay, stars Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio as two scientists struggling to convince the world that a giant comet is heading towards earth. Starring alongside the two leads are some of the biggest names in Hollywood, from Meryl Streep to Cate Blanchett to Jonah Hill to Tyler Perry to Timothee Chalamet. In this interview from January, McKay, who is also an executive producer of "Succession," joins us to discuss the film.
Everyone faces self doubt or personal obstacles that they must overcome. It's no different for leaders and individuals running successful companies. Allison McKay, CEO of Women in Aviation International, opens up about how she tackles her biggest fears in business and how you can work through your self doubt and achieve what you may not have thought was possible in your career.

On today's episode, McKay explores the concept of happiness, including where to find it, and how to hold on to it. To intoduce this rather expansive topic, he opens up the show by reviewing Elizabeth Smart's story - her brutal experience getting kidnapped and raped, and her journey toward happiness. McKay says that, while it's true that happiness is partially dependent upon circumstance, we can also attribute a large portion of our happiness to dedication, the people who raised us, and those with whom we surround ourselves. He goes on to introduce more conditions for happiness, noting that, when we have admirable intentions and goals in our lives, for example, we find more daily satisfaction. Even the love we share and receive plays a large role in how content we are. McKay draws this highly positive podcast episode to a close by reminding the audience to find joy in the little things, and by offering this invaluable advice: “Stay poised in tough situations—good will prevail. Exercise. Serve. Have Faith. Be humble and watch…. You will be happy.” The Finer Details of This Episode: Elizabeth Smart's journey Happiness dependent on circumstances Set happiness Taylor Swift's NYU speech The value of intention Love and happiness Darren's happy landing Focusing on the little things Quotes: "As the days passed, she started to realize that this may be her new way of life.” “He has taken 9 months of your life that you will never get back, but the best punishment you could ever give him is to be happy.” “Happiness is a choice.” “Married people report a slightly higher happiness level than single people. In research, 25 percent of married people and 21 percent of single people say they are very happy. In short, circumstances such as wealth or marital status only impact our happiness in small ways.” “We get more from our parents than eye color and facial features. We may get a large set of our happiness from them or from others. How we grew up or who we have interacted with throughout our life, does dictate our level of happiness.” “People with aspirations have higher energy levels, stronger immune systems, stronger mental health and feelings of self-confidence and self-esteem.” “I agree with the researchers. I believe happy people see the best, even in the toughest situations. They are empowered with poise and optimism.” “Remember, that only 10 percent of happiness depends on circumstances. Fifty percent is heritable. So be a person who sees, talks about and shares the good in life. You can pass on the habit of happiness to others and be a blessing to them.” “Focusing on the small things in life that bring you joy.” Links: https://www.mckaychristensen.org/ (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)
Griff to Charlie, Alex Pearce to McKay and we should be off to the bank with a 4-point deposit. (probably 3-points taking inflation into account) Time to Restump Podcast the Blues bash on Saturday.If we're a genuine top four finisher and premiership contender we have to put away the defence depleted Blues. Lose this game and suddenly it paints a shifting picture.The Blues have struggled to contain scoring in recent weeks so if we can capitalise on their deficiencies that end of the ground and quell the scoring power of Curnow and McKay the other end, we should be in good shape. The Blues are 4 wins from 4 games at Marvel this year and each time they kicked over 100 points. Further reasoning why extra focus should be on our team defence and why surely Griff starts back this week.Great to see Matty Tabs return although he'd have to be half a run short. Freddy has finally gotten over his hangover and he's straight back in, so its probably a good thing he's not on the side-lines carrying the drinks! And after a couple of cracking games for Peel, Liam Henry has been handed another opportunity in the absence of Blake Acres.The concerns are the massive losses of Sonny Walters and Sammy Switkowski. Both are vital cogs in the forward set up so Freddy and Shultzy will need to shoulder the workload. They may mitigate some of the loss but there's no substitute for Sonny in his current form!Unfortunately, no Adam Cerra to give constant reminders to each time someone runs by him but there is still a Jack ‘bloody' Newnes! It's simply a game we can win, should win and must win. It was great to hear Dave Mundy say he isn't leaving until they drag him out of the joint. Can he go another two years and secure the illustrious Mundy4Hundy? If things don't go our way in September can we blame Paul Hasleby for being a destabilising influence? Firstly, he was urging Griff to shift camps to West Coast and now he's got his eyes set on Belly for them? Is Hase on the payroll of the rogues up the road or has he been infiltrated by the clickbait revenue generating SEN business model?What a turnaround! We've 9 games left and we've got 5 of them on the big Friday and Saturday night stages. Time to stock up on carrots. It's a great time to be a Freo supporter. Crips and Fyfe, Charlie and Griff…. Its going to be a great game. It's about a day and a half until bounce down against the Blues. If you click play, we can get you through about 45 minutes of it here but then you're on your own.
About the book:• Shows how the certainty of change and loss can support rather than diminish love• Shares practices and meditations to help love endure in the face of loss, disappointment, change, or any of the ways relationships and circumstances are altered by time• Explores how to cultivate gratitude for every expression of love we encounter, strengthen compassion for others, and recognize the power of love after lifeCollaborating with his late son, Jordan, psychologist Matthew McKay offers five ways to keep love alive in a world of impermanence. He explores how to see and know what we love, how to actively care for what we love, how to have compassion for the suffering of others, how to set the daily intention to act with love, and how to turn toward rather than away from the pain of impermanence. McKay shares practices and meditations to help love endure in the face of loss, disappointment, change, or any of the ways relationships and circumstances are altered by time. He examines what love is and is not, including how not to mistake yearning and neediness for love, sex for love, and attraction to beauty for love. He shows how to cultivate gratitude for every expression of love we encounter, learn to care for things we don't like, and recognize the power of love after life--a love that reaches beyond death. He also provides concrete exercises for communicating with and channeling messages from loved ones who have crossed over.Ultimately, McKay shows that, by running from pain, we run from love. By avoiding pain, we lose the pathway to connection. Yet, by recognizing love in the heart of pain and loss, by knowing that change and impermanence are inevitable, we can navigate life with a compass pointing to love as true north, learning to love more deeply and making what we love more cherished.Matthew McKay, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist, professor of psychology at the Wright Institute, founder of the Berkeley CBT Clinic, and cofounder of the Bay Area Trauma Recovery Clinic, which serves low-income clients. He has authored and coauthored more than 40 books, including The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook, Seeking Jordan, and The Luminous Landscape of the Afterlife.

This week, McKay talks about how to speak so people listen. He opens up the episode with the story of Ronald Reagan's powerful speech to D-Day veterans at Pointe du Hoc. Great speakers, McKay says, ask questions to connect with the audience and help them feel like the message is for them. To remember and map their speech, good speakers break their speech down into manageable chunks, each with important points to get across. By using chunks, speakers can teach instead of memorizing their lines verbatim. Most importantly though, McKay holds that the key to speaking so that people listen is knowing your strengths and weaknesses. Then, seek to magnify your strengths. It's your strengths that make your speaking memorable. He goes on to note that, when we try to mimic someone else's style by playing to their strengths instead of our own, we come off as fake. That's why McKay says it's so important to share personal stories; the more an audience relates to you, the more they will listen to you. McKay also shares some speech 'don'ts' - such as using too many jokes to too much focus on the speaker. He draws this episode to a close by sending a heartfelt message to his friend Austin who has recently embarked on a public speaking journey of his own and encouraging all of us to learn a bit more how to speak so people listen.

What makes a speech remarkable and memorable? McKay answers this question in today's episode as he brings to light examples of great speeches and teaches us how to improve our speaking skills. In order to connect with your audience, McKay explains that you have to focus on your audience, prime them to think in the same mindset, use stories to carry them along, and ask questions. The episode begins with the story of Abraham's Lincoln speech, a short speech that inspired many and continues to do so to this day. McKay explains how Lincoln makes use of repetition and constraint in his speech and how he recognized his physical surroundings and atmosphere, giving more power to his speech. Mckay gives a step-by-step approach on how to become a better speaker by connecting more fully with your audience and making your speech less about you and more about your listener. The Finer Details of This Episode: Abraham Lincoln's speech at Gettysburg Using repetition and contrast in speeches How to become a better speaker You have to focus on your audience and connect with them The story behind “I Have A Dream” Starting your speech by priming the listeners The different examples of priming Priming with stories and jokes The power of asking your audience questions Quotes: “Great orators, when giving a speech, seek a cadence, a feeling, by their use of words.” “Great speaking is a developed talent.” “Too often, we don't consider the place or the audience. And so many speakers come at it from their own point of view, or make it about themselves. And this gets in the way, it prevents the listeners from fully engaging.” “Pay attention to where you sit. Sit where you can easily make contact with the listeners. Eye contact makes all the difference. ” “In the beginning of a presentation, you need to prime the listeners a bit so that they can follow you more intently. Priming brings the listener's mind into your mindset and gets everyone on the same track.” “Too often, I hear speakers tell personal stories, and they're focused on sharing the story like an overzealous friend who just returned from vacation and wants to show you their vacation pictures. And they share every single exhausting detail about themselves.” “Priming is a useful skill in all of your speaking. And when you learn to prime well, you can elevate your effectiveness.” Show Links: https://www.audible.com/pd/Podcast/B08JJMDXHL (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)

On today's episode, McKay talks about how to turn the skeptics and critics in your life to supporters and partners. He shares several principles that can help bring skeptics to your way of thinking. First, approach everything from their frame of reference. Often the smartest person in the room tends to be the quietest one, because they first seek to understand. He goes on to talk about the importance of speaking with authenticity. McKay shares the experience of Nelson Mandela who used the power of helping others feel validated to prevail in one of the most significant negotiations of all time. McKay then talks of how parents and people can use trust to influence the skeptics and critics in their life. McKay then shares the tactics of Robert Cialdini to develop more influence with people in our life. These tactics include reciprocity, explaining why, contrasting, and social proof. So, put these skills to test when dealing with the skeptics or critics in your life. They will help you win them over to your way of thinking. The Finer Details of This Episode: Shania Twain's vocal cords infected by ticks Ticks as a metaphor for skeptics The importance of listening Using trust to win over skeptics The power of authenticity Valuing others' opinions Nelson Mandela's quest for equality and freedom Practicing what you preach The rule of reciprocity Quotes: “Turning skeptics into believers, and critics into partners can be done. And learning the skill to do that is not only useful in sales and business, but also with kids, spouses, and a host of other people in our life.” “When I'm talking to a skeptic, I don't always know how to bring them to my side, but after listening often, that way to bring them over is revealed to me. It's in listening that you gain your inspiration of how to persuade them.” “People who ask questions are often the smartest in the room, because they have the humility to ask about what they don't know.” “Next, winning the skeptics, critics, or other ticks to your side is a matter of trust. And trust is a function of two characteristics: character and competence. You may have someone with extreme character on your team, but if they're not competent, you don't trust them to do what needs to be done.” “So answer questions directly and genuinely. And remember, rapport is not enough to bring skeptics to your side.” “You see, Mandela understood that to get the people with the guns to give up the power, he had to convince them that they would be safe after doing so.” “When people know why you're building a business or your children understand why there is a rule, they're much more apt to comply.” “Remember, shut up and listen. Use questions to guide the direction of the discussion but make sure the skeptics and critics feel understood. Then talk to them in their language and from their point of view.” Links: https://www.mckaychristensen.org/ (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)

Based upon Winsor McKay's pioneering comic strip and animated short, Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland was a joint production between Japanese and American animation studios that went through almost fifteen years of development hell before it was released to dismissive reviews and indifferent ticket sales in 1989. The roll call of those who worked on the film in some capacity can feel like a list of people who guided children's film for the next thirty years; notable names include Brad Bird, Jerry W. Rees, Brian Froud, Chris Columbus, Osamu Dezaki, Hayao Miyazaki, Andy Gaskill, Roger Allers, Isao Takahata, and many others. While the movie was a flop, it did attract a modest cult audience on home video (a decent pair of video games for the arcade and the NES console didn't hurt either). Ryan is joined by Cheryl for a breakdown of this interesting crossroad in the history of animated film. Discussion topics include the incomplete characterization of the main character, how the visual splendor of McKay's art nouveau-inflected style was translated to the screen, and the general grumpiness of Mickey Rooney. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/ryan-valentine3/support

On today's episode of Open Your Eyes, McKay talks about getting over obstacles or mistakes in your life. More often than not, we find ourselves looking to the past and focusing on what we could have done differently or better. McKay argues this is harmful behavior. The only true way to overcome the past is to accept where you are, see your current circumstance as a blessing, and look towards the future. McKay illustrates the power of leaving the past behind in his story of a skydiver's accident that rendered her less capable of walking. He notes that Emma could go on to live her life with an immense sense of regret or she could forgive herself, acknowledge the past, and put her energy towards writing the rest of her story. Where you put your focus in life is where you will go. So if you're constantly looking back, you will stay there, but if you look forward, you will move onward and upward. It's why McKay talks so much about the importance of healthy thought patterns. He draws this episode to a close on an uplifting note: when we look ahead and develop a positive mindset, we take control over our own destinies, so make peace with who you are and what you've done, and move on. The Finer Details of This Episode: The only way out is through Getting over past mistakes Noel's free falling accident Skeleton sledding Looking forward instead of backward The importance of healthy thought patterns How Emily Blunt overcame her stutter Quotes: “Yes, she was falling. Yes, she was about to die, but she was so grateful for her life. It turned her panic to peace.” “She now views her body so much differently. It's no longer something that defines her image, but rather a tool for her to live and enjoy the world.” “You must learn to break with and from these thinking patterns, and close that chapter in your life.” “In sledding, and in life, where you look is where you'll go. You see, our lives are shaped by where we look. And if you're looking back, that's where your thought patterns go. And if you're looking forward that too is where your thoughts and your life will go.” “Aristotle famously said, ‘We are what we repeatedly do.' Excellence then is not an act but a habit. I think the same is true of what we repeatedly think.” “So stand at the door of your mind, and only let in what is positive and helpful.” “Sometimes you have to follow a script. You have to act a bit before the change you're trying to accomplish feels entirely natural to you.” “Close that chapter in your life, and come to know the rest of your story. If you've fallen, be grateful for what you've learned, accept where you are, and move forward.” Links: https://www.mckaychristensen.org/ (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)
Welcome to BookShook! This podcast is all about the second half of May's book, The Animals in that Country by Laura Jean McKay published in 2020 (from page 140 if you're reading alongside). The idea of the podcast is that we'll read the first half of a book together — one that I and perhaps you have never read) and then I'll share my thoughts in part 1 of the podcast published on the second Friday of the month. And then in part 2 (published on the last Friday of the month), I'll discuss the second half of the book. We'll see together how the novel concludes and decide whether it's a book we'd recommend to a friend - or not. Of course, you don't have to read the book, you can listen to it, or just follow along without doing either since I'll be summarising what happens (but be aware! - there will be spoilers). You can leave a comment or start a conversation at the BookShook YouTube channel (link below) or send an email to email@example.com. The book we'll be reading for June is Howard's End by E.M. Forster (382pp) — we'll be reading up to Chapter 22 (so get that ready if you're going to read alongside me). The first podcast will be on 10th June. Thanks for listening to BookShook!

On today's episode, McKay talks to the audience about the importance of faith, and begins by introducing the story of Desmond Doss and his unwavering faith and peaceful determination at Hacksaw Ridge. McKay frames faith as a commitment to a choice, and the more we act on that choice, the more we reinforce our faith - reminiscent of Isaac Newton's laws of motion. Moving forward and taking steps, no matter how small, keeps our momentum in the right direction. He next advises listeners to eliminate distractions since they only serve to slow us down and divert us from our faith and purpose. Fear can also skew faith; it can lead to feelings of helplessness and certainly loneliness, and that's why McKay talks so much about action and moving forward. He draws this episode to a close by urging everyone to feed their faith for at least 15 minutes everyday, noting that human potential is limitless, and to let that go to waste would be a shame. The Finer Details of This Episode: Desmond's faith at Hacksaw Ridge Commitment to choices The importance of moving forward Scottie Scheffler's Masters win Eliminating distractions 5 truths about fears Why human potential is limitless Feeding your faith Quotes: “The more you act, the more faith you create. My faith is strong and grows when I am in an active state. When I am in a passive state, I lose my faith.” “In an active state, you learn, grow and feel like you are doing something within your control.” “Distraction is the great thief in life. It will divert your attention, capture your interest, and rarely return any value to your life. When you decide to do something remarkable in your life and place your faith in yourself and your decision, the first thing to do is to clear the path; remove any potential distractions.” “What we need to realize is that faith is a sales job. Each day we are selling to ourselves the thing in which we are placing our faith. That means the longer we go without acting on that thing, the less likely we are to act.” “Remember, action is the great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is the result of fear. Any action is better than no action at all. To prevent the law of diminishing intent, act now.” “Each day, set aside 15 minutes to feed your faith. It's a daily feeding time that will keep you focused and give you the wherewithal to keep your mind in the direction you should go.” Links: https://www.mckaychristensen.org/ (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)

For the first time ever, 3 guests join Kyle and Case in this episode: Aubrey McKay, Krystal Clark and Dane Mychal. Together we discuss her challenging upbringing that included homelessness, her constant fight for dirty/gritty roles as a beautiful woman in Hollywood, the enormous impact of the Dorothy Dandridge role on her career, and the impressive feat of winning an Oscar and a Razzie.

This week, McKay talks about miracles, opening up the episode with the story of pilot and pioneer, Amelia Earhart, and the unbelievable tale that is the rescue of McKenzie Morgan. He argues that both stories are miracles in their own right, and these miracles can happen to us so long as we open our minds and hearts to them. McKay says it's all about realizing your worth. Too many people believe themselves unworthy of serendipitous positivity when that couldn't be further from the truth. We all deserve miracles - sometimes we just need to open our eyes to them. McKay goes on to discuss the importance of self forgiveness and overcoming past mistakes. It's easy to feel that your past has seemingly predetermined your future. If you open your eyes, however, you might find that miracles are all around us, especially in the people we meet everyday. McKay draws this episode to a close by celebrating the life of Indy Ju who, before tragically passing away from leukemia at a young age, inspired millions to believe in miracles again. The Finer Details of This Episode: The story of Amelia Earhart McKenzie Morgan's rescue Opening our minds to miracles Being in the right place at the right time The importance of knowing your worth Overcoming past mistakes Indy Ju's courageous battle with leukemia Quotes: “We must have been in the mountains that day for a reason.” “When you are looking for a miracle, maybe you are more open to the advice of others, maybe you take more chances, maybe your heart is inclined to have faith in someone or something.” “I believe that these small miracles happen in our lives all the time. Moments of clarity that we don't always arrive at on our own. The point is, sometimes you need to be looking for a miracle. Maybe take a chance or two.” “You deserve love, forgiveness, strength and happiness. You may not feel like you deserve it, but you do. You are of immense worth and here on this earth to find peace and rise from the ashes.” “The millions of people who were inspired by and connected to this little girl with down syndrome has been nothing short of miraculous. Miraculous to those who needed to look beyond their own circumstances, to grandfathers who need redemption, to neighbors who need to care about each other, to people who lack faith who need to look. Miracles happened because of Indy Lu, and miracles can happen because of you.” “This world is filled with so much good. There is so much to be grateful for. So, as we end today, remember McKenzie. Be willing to be in the right place at the right time.” Links: https://www.mckaychristensen.org/ (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)

Today on the Open Your Eyes podcast, McKay talks about creating lasting wealth, and opens up the episode with two stories about Charles Ponzi and Bernie Madoff - both of whom schemed investors out of billions of dollars. He points out that, unlike Ponzi, Madoff, and their corrupt practices, in order to create genuine wealth, one has to define what wealth truly means. The next step according to McKay to generate wealth is to save and invest, and goes on to urge the audience to diversify these investments in order to best mitigate risk. Last but not least, McKay argues that investors simply think differently, and if people want to be wealthy they should do so as well. Investors think like owners, whereas the ‘average Joe' might be more likely to think that their income is sufficient enough to live on without investments. This is why McKay believes so strongly in the power of financial education - after all, if we don't take the time to learn the game, how are we ever supposed to play it? The Finer Details of This Episode: The story of Charles Ponzi Deciding what real wealth means to you The importance of saving and investing Diversification and averaging How to minimize taxes Why investors think differently Quotes: “When something is too good to be true, it most likely is. I can't tell you the number of times people have come to me telling me about the latest sure thing, and that sure thing doesn't turn out.” “These schemes often promise high returns with little risk. Educated investors understand there is always risk.” “Riches are not an end in life, but an instrument in life.” “The goal of good investing is to get your money working for you. This seems obvious, but getting the right mindset about investing is really important.” “When you get educated, you'll learn that the older you get and the closer you come to needing your money to live on, the more you need to reduce the chances of volatility.” “An investor thinks differently. They don't think about how much they can earn as an employee, they think about how much they can earn as an owner.” “Determine what real wealth means to you. Get your plan established. Start investing today. Build a diversified portfolio, and average into the market. Take advantage of tax advantaged investments. Get educated, and give 10% of what you earn.” Links: https://www.mckaychristensen.org/ (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)
