Here's a full-length episode from Real Vision's original series, My Life in 4 Trades - be sure to subscribe. Jason Buck's story is wildly fascinating. When he was 19, he turned $2,000 into $100,000 simply by investing in tech stocks. A few years later, he was worth roughly $5 million. But he lost it all during the Global Financial Crisis, and he had to move in with his sister. It's a wildly fascinating story, full of lessons about surviving, battling through adversity, and succeeding. Above all, as Jason shares with Maggie Lake, is to be always willing to learn.

There aren't many acts who can say they're on the road for 60 year, but The Rolling Stones have done just that. Their first gig was in the Marquee Club in London on 12th July 1962. Starting tomorrow night on BBC 2, a new four-part series features the reflections of the four band members as they look back on their careers on stage and in the headlines. Sam Anthony is the series producer of “My Life as a Rolling Stone” and he joined us on the show this afternoon. The first episode of “My Life as a Rolling Stone” – on Mick Jagger – is on BBC Two, 9.30pm tomorrow night, with a double bill of Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood on Saturday 9th July, and Charlie Watts' film on 23rd July.

There are a few times I have been taught the value of testing your backups.  That is why even disaster recovery needs to be validated.  The first story I share is probably a worst-case scenario.  However, it can happen, so we need to be aware of failure points.  We must validate our backups regularly to ensure the process we are counting on is there when we need it. Testing Your Backups Before They Are Needed There are many ways to test backups and our disaster recovery plan.  We can do the extreme version, cut power to the required systems, and attempt to replace them via the procedure.  However, that may not be needed.  We may be able to do partial testing and ensure we can restore or copy the required files.  Even simple things like an automated update process can cause issues with our plan.  Therefore, we need to test regularly and ensure we keep the component parts updated and ready for use. Outliers and False Comfort It is easy to fall into a false sense of comfort about your strategy.  That is where the second story comes in.  Do not assume that your process working last month means it is still working this month.  Likewise, ensure outliers such as systems, applications, or files that are rarely (if ever) used are included in the backups.  I know of several situations where all was well until it was determined that some long-ago created file was lost or corrupted.  Then they found out that the file or system was not covered in the DR plan.  Even a simple act of rebooting a system has caused loss, and when that system was not backed up properly, it was a painful loss.

Sweeping Consequences - Avoid All In Until You Are Sure

There is an old joke about sweeping consequences in IT related to wildcard commands like "rm -rf *."  However, there are ways to avoid getting bit by them. For example, we can do test runs and subset queries before doing the real thing.  While it is undoubtedly faster to rip off one of those commands, it is also dangerous.  This episode looks into some tricks of the trade I learned after countless times of being tripped up by this concept. Sometimes Easy Creates Sweeping Consequences A database is the best tool for examples of doing something quick and dirty that ends up costly.  We can see this even with resource usage before more significant effects like data loss or corruption.  The old SQL command of "SELECT * FROM ..." is one of the first many people learn and the biggest culprit.  We do not see any problem with a table with a few rows.  However, once we move to millions of rows, we can quickly turn this quick call into a time-consuming one that ties up a lot of resources.  Even worse, we can add a join or two without constraints and bring a system to its knees.  It is easier to grab all the columns for a quick browse, but that can also drain more resources than desired. Check Your Expectations The database example is nice and clean because we can always add limiting constraints or do counts of result size.  These tools allow us to validate our query meets our expectations without fully running the query.  For example, we can do a select before a delete is run and ensure that the records we will delete are the ones we desire to remove.  Likewise, we can select before we update.  We can also do smaller selects to determine the result set size before joining those queries.  These are just a few examples; we can apply this to our other coding efforts and most life situations.

When was the last time you thought about that topic...Your Purpose? These are important topics and discussion you should be having with yourself... ...What's My Life's Purpose ...What should I really be doing with my Purpose in Life & Business I've found in my life that it's super Important to Organize Your Life Around a Purpose ...without purpose life is out of control ...with purpose you can steer the right direction There are so many benefits of purpose ...life purpose brings peace of mind ...gives you inspiration to make your individual goals cohesive ...creates structure for your goals and daily activities   Does everyone have a purpose inside them?...Yes Can you have more than one purpose?...Absolutely Can your purpose change over time?...Yes   I believe it is important to learn and develop your purpose, so you do not just blindly adopted others purpose (people or companies)   So, what is your purpose and how to do identify it? Well, purpose can feel like a calling inside you. ...might be difficult to pin point, but you recognize it when you see it. ...most likely you do have a feeling or direction already.   The Key is learning to organize your life (align it) around your purpose That's when you see some changes start to happen with your fulfillment and results   Don't chase the PERFECT Life Purpose...there isn't one.   Some part of you already know the direction of your purpose. But, if your purpose still feels hidden in your subconscious... ...its time to start being proactive and take action around your feelings ...otherwise your conscious mind will just stay busy and distracted.   A Life's Purpose is simple: 1- a short phrase or sentence at the most 2- life's purpose is not an action plan.  it is the "reason" behind plan   Examples to become a world-class violinist to help people in need to bring joy and happiness artist might have a purpose to challenge the way people think business leaders might be to create a profitable business to impact the world   Each of these purposes' can be accomplished through creating and aligning a strategy, goal setting and consistent action in your everyday life.  The details of your plan are ultimately driven by the "reason."   Couple things to keep in mind.. -purpose is a merely a guide for living your life -you can align your life around it -it doesn't have to be your full time obsession -your purpose can change as you live life and change yourself and your circumstances   Ultimately, everyone's purpose is extremely unique because none of us has the same talents, skills, needs, concerns and ambitions and interests.   The best way to integrate your Life's Purpose into your Destiny Planning is to Create a Personal Mission Statement. ...it can be just a couple sentences you create around your purpose. ...it will help drive your thoughts, actions, and life overall.   Personal Mission Statement Exercise ...I'll post a pdf you can download in the show notes.   Questions to set you up... ...what is the purpose of your life? ...why are you here? ...what do you want to experience in life? ...how do you want to feel on a daily basis?   Personal Mission Statement Worksheet to help you guide your thoughts, create your plan, and see your Mission from several angles and perspectives...   Answer each of these questions with some careful thought.   My Life's Purpose is?.... (become the best version of myself) My Empowering Self-Definition is?... (whatever my mind can conceive and believe it can achieve with focus and discipline) I Want My Life to be an Answer to What Question?... (how can i share my talents with the world and create change and impact in the world) My Mission in Life is?... (to inspire and motivate others to create and live their ultimate destiny) The Sort of Influence on Others I'd Like to be is?... (I want to inspire, influence and support the people I love and those around me)   I hope these thoughts on Life's Purpose, Destiny and a Personal Mission Statement will help give you some direction, confidence and assistance in creating a better blueprint for your life.   Ultimately, as I said before, My goal is to help inspire you to CREATE and LIVE your ultimate destiny.   Thanks for listening today.  I'll see you again tomorrow.

We continue the series about errors and recovering with an excellent example of acceptable loss and when to walk away.  We see these appear in negotiations regularly.  They are shown in movies, television shows, and in real life.  We walk away regularly without even realizing it. So yes, when you decide not to purchase an item or enter a store because of products or pricing, you are walking away from the negotiation. Determine Acceptable Loss Up Front The key to being able to walk away from any negotiation is to determine your breaking point beforehand.  This preparation allows us to detach emotion from the negotiation and have a way to hold ourselves accountable.  It can prompt the internal conversation of "I thought we would not accept that..."  That one can be a lifeline when emotions start to kick in.  Likewise, we can create a list of wants/needs to help us avoid giving in to speed up the process or prevent conflict.  Those are all "tricks" used by good negotiators. Good After Bad We all have a built-in desire to avoid loss.  That is why the idea of having invested too much to stop investing in a person or project is a common pitfall.  We have this false equivalence of thinking we can invest more in a loss and turn it into a win.  Likewise, we often make the mistake of thinking we have spent so much we have to continue.  Our point of no return needs to be set before starting a project.  That is why this story works so well.  I could have quickly decided that my time was worth X dollars.  THen, when faced with a change in value, I would have had a hard line to measure against.  These bad habits involve emotion and can be avoided if we think them through beforehand.

This episode looks at a marketing campaign and my lack of paying based on key performance indicators or KPIs.  This was a slightly costly mistake and, thus, one that sticks in my memory.  The mistakes that cause us some level of pain are also the easiest to remember. However, that is not the only lesson to learn from this past mistake. KPI - Key Performance Indicators Any form of sales or marketing campaign can be a black box when we do not set KPI values.  There must be a way to measure success (or failure), and our metrics are the key performance indicators.  For example, most advertising campaigns focus on clicks or leads for a measure of potential additional sales.  Likewise, there is a KPI referred to as impressions that is to measure how many people see the ad. Pay On Delivery The most significant challenge in any transaction is matching delivery and payment.  You can see this on e-bay and Etsy sales, among other similar sites.  We want to ensure that we get what we pay for or are paid for our product/service.  However, we can take a "trust them" stance and pay upfront or provide a service before payment.  Those options allow us to get burned, and I was in this case.  Trust is something to be earned.  Therefore, we should avoid cash upfront situations unless we have reason to trust the other party.

In this episode, our trip down memory lane stops at my first professional interview and when I learned to ask questions.  It is thought by many that those that know never ask.  However, that is far from the truth.  There are always details to be learned.  Likewise, good questions can impress others in an interview or other assessment situation.  Smart people still ask questions; they ask insightful ones. You Provide Insight When You Ask Questions This story is about an interview, and that is the number one situation in our lives where we want to provide a lot of information in a short period.  A good interview goes deep quickly and gives the audience a chance to understand us to some degree, not simply meet us.  Therefore,  everything we say or do not say will be used to evaluate some facet of our personality, skills, and drive.  While that can be stressful, it should also help us realize that we need to be focused and intentional.  Research is helpful before we go into an interview and can alleviate some of our worries.  On the other hand, we cannot use what we learn to short circuit the interview process.  Instead, we need to use that to go deeper. Learn What To Ask All of this may seem confusing and even counterintuitive.  Thus, it helps to simplify the recommendation.  The goal of an interview is to get both parties to understand each other better in a short time.  Research about the others and related organizations can help you get past surface "get to know you" items.  Do not use that to shorten the interview.  Instead, use that time to ask more probing or leading questions.  A simple example is if you know the interviewer will be your manager, you can skip talking about that arrangement and instead ask about their management style.  What you know can save time on introductions.  Then you get to talk about meatier topics and discussions that will help both sides of the table. If you like this season, you will probably like Scott Adams' book, "How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big: Kind of the Story of My Life."

We look at another childhood error and its somewhat humorous result as an example of how to plan for acceptable risk.  We often think of that as something where you are willing to pay the price.  However, we also need to examine mitigating the consequences to where they are acceptable.  It is sort of like placing a monetary bet.  There is a limit we can lose, but maybe a side bet will help reduce the overall loss.  Precautions And Acceptable Risk Preventive action is an excellent way to adjust acceptable risk.  We see examples of this in beta testing and limited releases in the business world.  Yes, the product may fail. But, on the other hand, we have less invested and less potential for negative backlash.  That allows us to push out a new product and consider it an acceptable risk rather than delay release or continue to redesign or refine it.  Testing Theories and Risks Momentum is so often an underlying item of concern in our discussions.  This story is no different.  Sometimes the best way to approach a novel idea is incremental.  That allows us to verify our assumptions without building as much momentum and even limiting potential loss or harm.  However, sometimes we have to reach certain minimums of progress or speed to provide a proper test of our idea.  We can't attempt to jump over a portion of a gap.  Likewise, testing the result of an impact is useless if the impact is so slow as to be unnoticeable. Nevertheless, we can take incremental steps towards our solution.  They need to be adequately sized to be effective.

Imagine being a kid who loved music, who'd been brought up with jazz literally in his blood, graduating college, then, instead of heading into a “responsible” adult job like all your friends, opening a record store in the heart of Seattle at a time where the neighborhood musicians, the ones who'd hang out all day and talk about all-things-music, also just happened to be budding icons who'd go one to become scions in the industry, forming bands like Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Sound Garden, and so many others. This is just one season in the extraordinary life and career of today's guest, Nabil Ayers.Now, years into a powerhouse career in music, he heads-up of one of the most iconic labels in the business, one, in fact, he fell in love with as a young kid. Growing up mixed-race, Jewish and Black, in NYC in the eighties, with a father who was a legendary jazz musician, but also entirely absent from his life, Nabil's mom and uncle made sure to surround him with music, musicians and other quirky characters. And, that seeded a passion not just for music, but also for the culture, the stories, and eventually the business of helping artists grow and thrive. Along the way, Nabil also found himself becoming a storyteller. Both, of his own narrative, and of the many artists he'd champion and help introduce to the world. And, well into his career in music, Nabil began writing about music, his own life and story, and race for publications including The New York Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, GQ, and The Root. Ayers is the President of Beggars Group US, a music label where he has released albums by many GRAMMY Award-winning artists such as The National. His new memoir, My Life in the Sunshine: Searching for My Father and Discovering My Family is about his journey to connect with his musician father, Roy Ayers, and ultimately re-draw the lines that define family and race.

We had the pleasure of interviewing BLKBOK over Zoom video.Neoclassical pianist and Detroit native BLKBOK is set to soundtrack this year's Juneteenth celebrations with the deluxe version of his debut album 'Black Book'. Arriving on June 17 via icons+giants, ‘Black Book DLUX' is a timely natural continuation of BLKBOK's critically-acclaimed debut as a composer, reflecting on pertinent social issues, with counterpoints, and sustaining a dialogue through his thought-provoking pieces. The package includes 11 new interstitial poems woven throughout the album, written and narrated by award-winning Jamaican poet Lauren Delapenha. Additionally, it features two new powerful singles “Kendrick + Karine” and “Forgotten Girls.”While touring the world as a pianist or musical director with the likes of Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, Timbaland and John Mayer, BLKBOK spent his private time composing his own original material, music that was inspired by his love of hip-hop and classical music. When the pandemic set in and touring came to a halt, he finalized these compositions which led to getting signed by icons+giants/WMG and releasing his first body of solo work, last year's ‘Black Book.' BLKBOK was inspired to create ‘Black Book' as a tribute to the movie ‘Green Book' and the courageous story of pianist/composer Don Shirley, whose trailblazing spirit helped open the door for black classical pianists of which there remains too few. The largely instrumental album features a standout vocal collaboration with Hamilton's Tony and Grammy Award-winning Renée Elise Goldsberry on “My Life.” Provocative singles like “George Floyd and the Struggle for Equality,” “November 7th 2020” and “Michelle's First Day At The White House” offer listeners unique perspectives of the social climate that we live in, and an opportunity to hear BLKBOK's reflections of the world through the keys of the piano.Since releasing his debut album, BLKBOK has taken to social media weekly, while developing new work in real-time and challenging the way we listen to classical music. A 21st century black pianist equally infatuated with rappers like Busta Rhymes and The Notorious B.I.G., as well as the classical greats like Debussy, Mozart, and Bach, BLKBOK has gone viral on TikTok with his riveting neoclassical TikTok covers of Cardi B and Kendrick Lamar. On Instagram, he hosts a monthly “What's Goin' On” social series, where he develops new songs related to current cultural milestones and events, and offers an open forum for fans to share their feelings and discuss social issues.We want to hear from you!
