# 322 Korallen einsetzen, den richtigen Platz finden

DER Meerwasseraquariumpodcast mit Markus Mahl

In der heutigen Ausgabe beschäftigen wir uns mit der Frage wie und wo du Korallen im Meerwasseraquarium am besten platzieren kannst bzw. was der beste Standort für Korallen ist. Das sind Fragen die besonders immer wieder bei Einsteigern aufkommen, da es viele verschiedene Korallenarten gibt, die die unterschiedlichsten Ansprüche an ihre Umgebung stellen. Grundsätzlich gibt es für die erste engere Standortauswahl der Korallen im Aquarium zwei aussagekräftige Parameter. Der erste ist die Stärke der Strömung und der zweite Parameter ist die Stärke des Lichts. Beginnen wir mal mit der Stärke des Lichts.  Das Meerwasseraquarium lässt sich in den meisten Fällen grob in zwei Zonen einteilen.  Die Schwachlichtzone und die Starklichtzone.   Die Schwachlichtzone ist meistens in den Randbereichen des Aquariums, ins besonders dann wenn die Aquarienbeleuchtung kürzer als das Aquarium ist.  Auch die Höhe des Aquariums hat einen wesentlichen Einfluß auf die Beleuchtungsstärke, die logischerweise von der Beleuchtung aus gesehen nach unten in das Aquarium kontinuierlich abnimmt. Das bedeutet ganz simpel, je weiter unten sich der ausgesuchte Stellplatz der Koralle befindet, desto dunkler ist es.  Das hängt natürlich auch sehr stark von der Leistungsstärke der vorhandenen Beleuchtung ab. Die Starklichtzone ist der Bereich der sich sehr nah an der Wasseroberfläche und im direkten Lichtkegel der Beleuchtung befindet. In der Starklichtzone kannst du alle Korallen ansiedeln die auch in der Natur diesen Bedingungen ausgesetzt sind. So kannst du dort z.B. Sarcophyton, Sinularias, Acropora, Stylophora ansiedeln. Grundsätzlich eignen sich für diesen Bereich viele SPS-Arten. In der Schwachlichtzone lassen sich häufig sehr gut verschiedene Arten von Scheibenanemonen oder auch Korallen ohne Zooxanthellen ansiedeln.  Auch für den Bereich der mittleren Lichtzone gibt es eine große Auswahl von Korallen.  Hier kannst du auch Weich- und Lederkorallen, Scheibenanemonen und die meisten LPS-Arten problemlos ansiedeln. Ich rate dir dazu, dass du dir genau den Standort der Koralle im Händlerbecken ansiehst und den dann mehr oder weniger in deinem Meerwasserbecken suchst. Wichtig hierbei ist, dass wenn die Koralle bis dato an einem dunkleren Standort war und du diese nun an einen helleren Standort setzen möchtest, dass du das sehr langsam machst, damit sich die Koralle langsam an die höhere Lichtintensität gewöhnen kann. Idealerweise stellst du die Korallen anfangs in deinem Becken weiter nach unten und stellst sie dann alle paar Tage ein bisschen weiter nach oben. So kannst du sicher gehen, dass sich die Korallen langsam an die neue und stärkere Beleuchtung gewöhnen kann. Kommen wir nun zum nächsten Punkt, der Strömung.  Auch hier erfolgt eine grobe Einteilung nach stark, mittel und schwach. Es gibt aber einen Punkt den alle Korallen gemeinsam haben und zwar vermeide auf jeden Fall eine direkte Strömung. Das bedeutet, setze keine Koralle zu nah an eine Strömungspumpe, denn eine direkte und zu starke Strömung führt sehr schnell zu Verletzungen des Korallengewebes. Besonders bei Steinkorallen wird das fleischige Gewebe an das teilweise scharfkantige Korallenskelett gepresst, was dann zwangsläufig zu Verletzungen führt, die dann meistens mit dem Tod der Koralle enden. Wie bei der Beleuchtungsstärke ist es auch bei der Stärke der Strömung sinnvoll sich an den natürlichen Standorten der Koralle zu orientieren. Die meisten SPS-Arten wie z.B. Acropora, Stylophora, Montipora oder auch Leder- und Weichkorallen lieben eine starke Strömung.  Scheibenanemonen und viele LPS-Korallen fühlen sich eher bei mittlerer bis schwacher Strömung wohler. Deshalb würde ich auch wie bei der Beleuchtungsstärke den bisherigen Standort beim Händler betrachten und wenn dort die Korallen dort gut öffnet, in mein Meerwasserbecken übertragen. Ein weiterer wichtiger Punkt der bei der Platzwahl von Korallen zu berücksichtigen ist, ob die Korallen Kampftentakeln haben.  Kampftentakeln kommen z.B. bei Euphyllia Arten, Blasenkorallen, Galaxearten vor.  Kampftentakel werden je nach Korallenart bis zu 20 cm lang und sind mit starken Nesselgiften besetzt. Besonders in der Nacht werden häufig die Kampftentakel ausgefahren um benachbarte Korallen zu bekämpfen. Der Sinn von Kampftentakeln ist es, damit die Korallenkolinie weiter wachsen kann benötigt sie eine gewisse Siedlungsfläche. Und mit den Kampftentakeln hält sich die Koralle die umliegende Fläche frei oder tötet auch zu nahestehende Korallen ab, um dann dort deren Platz einzunehmen. Deshalb ist es bei den eben genannten Arten extrem wichtig, dass bei der Auswahl des Standortes  von Anfang an genügend Abstand zu den benachbarten Korallen eingehalten wird, da es sonst zu massiven Schäden kommen kann. Der Abstand zu benachbarten Korallen ist unabhängig von Kampftentaklen ein Thema, das du berücksichtigen solltest. Denn wenn die Korallen wachsen dürfen sie sich auf keinen Fall berühren, da es dann zu starken Vernesselungen kommt die meisten mit sehr starken Schäden an den Korallen einher gehen. Ein weiterer Punkt der bei der Standortauswahl unbedingt berücksichtigt werden soll ist, wie schnell und stark sich Korallen vermehren.  So solltest du z.B. Xenias, Krustenanemonen, Stoloniferen, Briareum nicht mitten in einem Riffaufbau platzieren, da sie sich häufig sehr schnell ausbreiten und im schlechtesten Fall andere Korallen überwachsen. Deshalb gibt es Sinn, dass du für diese Arten einen eigenen, abgegrenzten Riffaufbau der nicht mit den anderen Teilen verbunden ist zu gestalten und zu besiedeln. Denn dann kannst du deutlich einfacher die Ausbreitung kontrollieren und das Überwachsen der anderen Korallen verhindern. Schauen wir uns zum Schluss noch kurz an, wie du Korallen im Riffaufbau befestigten kannst. Ich versuche soweit es geht die Korallen im Riffaufbau zu verkeilen, da ich kein Freund von Korallenkleber oder Riffmörtel bin. Aber es gibt immer wieder Fälle wo es sich nicht vermeiden lässt, dass Korallen festgeklebt werden müssen.  Wenn du Korallen festklebst musst du unbedingt darauf achten, dass du beim anpressen der Korallen den Stein der Koralle und nicht das Korallengewebe drückst, denn sonst kommt es sehr schnell zu schwerwiegenden Verletzungen des Korallengewebes. Wichtig ist immer, dass die Korallen fest im Riffaufbau sitzen und nicht herunterfallen können.  Herunterfallende Korallen die länger auf ihrem Gewebe liegenbleiben erleiden dann häufig Gewebeschäden. Noch gefährlicher ist es, wenn Korallen herunterfallen und dabei in einer anderen Korallen liegen bleiben. Das führt dann in den meisten Fällen an beiden Korallen zu massiven Schäden.   Viel Spaß mit der neuen Folge. Mein Pflegemittel-Onlineshop: Kennst du meine Profi-Pflegemittel für Meerwasseraquarien?

It's easy to minimize what we do as therapists and look at all the years of schooling, experience, and skills as something anyone can do, but there is so much value in what you offer to the world (and what you can offer to yourself if you just give yourself permission to create and live the life you want). In this episode, I talk with Marquita Johnson, therapist, dating coach, motivational speaker, business speaker, author, and amazing single mom, about her experiences building a business, caring for and conserving energy as an entrepreneur, and giving permission to herself to create and seize life-changing opportunities. We talk about: how Marquita brought dreams to reality by giving herself permission to break the mold and take the leap to follow passions and ideas how boundaries and roadblocks are things that you often set for yourself because of impostor syndrome, but you can tear them down how the question, "can I do it?" is often a sign for Marquita that she probably should how doing something first (or new) can be a catalyst for change and people to follow how each therapist has uniqueness and value in the way they do therapy (and that's their secret sauce and superpower) Marquita's passion for working with millennials balancing mommyhood as a single parent with entrepreneurship More about Marquita: Marquita Johnson is a graduate of Mercer University with a Master of Science in Community Counseling and Master of Divinity. Marquita received her undergraduate degree from Georgia State University in Psychology & Sociology. She is a licensed professional counselor in Georgia, nationally certified counselor, board certified tele-mental health counselor, and certified professional counselor supervisor. Marquita is also a brainspotting practitioner. Her specialties include women issues, dating, divorce, spirituality, and step-families. Currently, Marquita enjoys private practice work and supporting the Faculty & Staff Assistance Program at Emory University. She is currently pursuing her doctoral degree in Counselor Education and Supervision at Walden University. -------------------------------------------------------

Got it. Okay, great. Yeah, yeah. Hi, Melinda. Welcome to the podcast. I am so happy to have you on as a guest. We've been trying to do this for a while. So I'm really excited. Thanks for coming on.   00:19 Yes, thank you for having me. I'm really happy to be here. Finally.   00:22 Yes. And our connection is we did Selena Sue's impact accelerator in 2020. I believe it was, because it was right during the beginning of the pandemic. And so we spent nine months together, I think, right? Was it nine months, six months, nine months was a long time. So it was really a wonderful group of women led by Selena and her team. And Linda was one of those wonderful women. And I'm really excited to have you here now. And we are going to talk about some limiting beliefs that we may have as entrepreneurs that keep us stuck that don't allow us to move forward. But before we get to those nuggets, let's talk about how you came to realize that business success was highly dependent on the inner work we're willing to do. So I'll kick it over to you.   01:23 Yeah, great. Okay, so a little bit of my background, I studied dance and theater. So I actually worked as a choreographer as a dancer for like, 17 years, and I have my own dance company. And, and I thought that that was going to be what I would be doing my whole life, until things just changed. And I ended up going for a holiday to Bali. And in that holiday, a lot changed. And a lot happened. Long story short, I decided to quit my dance company. And I decided that I wanted to start more of a business of my own and an online business. And I ended up staying in Bali. So I got a little job there in a local yoga school teaching yoga and teaching contemporary dance, making very little money, because that was in rupee, us. And you need a lot of rupees to go around. So I could just maintain my living there, I was living on my savings, and I was making there. And in the meantime, I was learning more about business. Because even though when I look back, I wasn't an entrepreneur before that. I really didn't know that in a way that was just artistic. That was my focus. So it was learning about entrepreneurship, about online business, I found out how to do things I learned all the techniques started to create online courses, that all the things but it didn't really take off. And in that time on Bali, I took a course on limiting beliefs, it was specifically on that topic. And in that course, I at one point said to the teacher, listen, I need to really take a break because I'm working with a business coach, and I need to write my about page and I need to write all these things. And I have been working on it for days and days and days. And I don't seem to get it and I need to spend time and she said, that's okay, you can take the afternoon off. But why don't we look at the beliefs that are in the way of you just writing them. And she tested beliefs. And I remember there were beliefs like, I am a leader, I'm an expert. I I know who I am, I know what I want to do things like that. And some of those beliefs and I say tested actually have to explain that. We tested that with muscle testing with a Kinesiology technique. And she did that. And they were like testing as a no. So we worked on the beliefs and right after I said, Okay, I'm gonna sit down and write is about page and I just wrote it. I got it out. And that felt really good showed it to my business coach. And about like, two weeks later, I started to make so much more money. I literally made $15,000 In two weeks, which was totally surreal for me. And from then on, just something clicked in my head, I was okay, I needed to shift certain beliefs to have a breakthrough in a way to put myself out there and actually run a business and make money in a healthy and empowering way.   04:33 And what were the beliefs that were holding you back? What did you have to step over?   04:39 Yeah. I mean, fairly, honestly, a big belief that I found that I didn't know wasn't in because these beliefs live in your subconscious. So they often feel very big and dramatic, I would say. But there was a belief that I found that was I'm a failure, which was also related to me as because in the Netherlands, I was having a good career as a choreographer, my dance company against all odds was touring in the Netherlands and, and even abroad. And I was quitting that, but I felt I'm a failure, I'm like a failure, if I do that, because I didn't become this artist, or I'm gonna always feel at this business thing, I can never make so much money. So that were the kind of beliefs that I was mainly battling. And, and that and that felt deep, that felt really painful. It was very confronting to look at that. And to, to see that and so we did all the work around it. We'll get to that a little bit. Maybe later on, but there's just events in life that create those beliefs. So all of that came up. And I had to work through pretty emotional things to really let them go and have the change happen, because those beliefs changed.   05:59 Yeah. And now let's talk about those limiting beliefs. So there are a lot of myths kind of swirling around about some limiting beliefs that might keep us stuck. So why don't we dive in? I think there's five I'm sure there's 50. If there's five, right. But we'll take maybe some common ones. So let's, let's talk about number one.   06:26 So one is that a belief is just a thought that you keep thinking? And I don't I don't agree with that it does. It's not for that song on repeat. Because very often, we don't even know what are those beliefs, we think now I think I'm good enough, I think I'm good enough the way I am, right? And then when you look at the subconscious mind, it might not actually deep down believe that. Or I've worked with people, even really successful business people that make millions, and, and they have built so much success in their life. And I've worked through that. And they have, you know, the cars and the house, and they have the success. And we worked and we found beliefs around confidence. Like again, like the kind of I'm not good enough beliefs, or I'm not confidence, I actually don't know. This only can cut. And, and what so what seemed is that you can have this external reality of really success and being confident and being all the things. But then the belief doesn't have to support that. And then it even seems that this belief of I'm not successful, or I'm not confident, so I'm not good enough, actually became a motivator. A drive to always work harder to always do better. So it becomes it's another reason for the for the subconscious mind to not let go of that belief is like, hey, we get a lot out of that. Mm   08:01 hmm. Yeah. Especially if it becomes a driving force, you think, well, this is a good thing that I think or believe this, because it's driving me to where I am now. And then so then the question is, Is it harmful to get rid of that belief? Or what would happen if if that belief were to change if that's your motivating factor?   08:22 Yeah, when I work with my people, like in the method that I use, really, literally tell the brain? I mean, we will look for like, what are those benefit benefiting factors that came from that limiting belief? What are the good things and often Yes, motivation, or I'm connected, you know, other people like me, if I don't have I'm not so successful, I play a little small, and really liked and loved. And, and those are good things. And it's good to be connected to other people and to be humble even if you want that. But you don't need the limiting belief for that. And we will literally tell the brain, you can be successful and still be liked and loved and still be a really good person. And you know, you can have all those good things. I'm thinking of a woman I worked with, and it's a really clear example. She had this limit of she had her own business, and she was making about $5,000 a month. And she really felt like a limit there. Like, really like every time I go above that I get really uncomfortable. I do something to have a be relaxed the next month, she would even sometimes get physically sick. And I said, Okay, let's look at the belief. And what turned out is that in her life, in many different ways, she had learned that it's really, that you become a bad person if you make a lot of money. And she had worked before that for oil and gas companies and had stopped that because she felt my values just don't align with that. But it was over Ever in her life, it was reinforced that you can only make if you make a lot of money, you're a bad person. And when we could switch that I remember so well that she switched it. And she said, Oh, I want what I really want to believe is that money can be a force for good. And that if I make lots of money, I can make a beautiful positive impact in the world. And she literally, we did that session. And literally the next month, she started making three times more or four times more, just because she could not do that in a way that will stand in line with with her values. Really?   10:43 Yeah. And that's a deep, that's a deep one. To get over. I was   10:48 really deep. And then you also see it already, the parents have, you know, always taught her things like that. And then you just see how to hold family. And of course, the whole society would would teach things around them. Yeah, yeah. Oh, wow.   11:02 Okay, so that's a big, that's a big myth. What's Myth number two.   11:08 So Myth number two is that you can just replace the belief with a simple thought. So you just decide, I don't feel good enough or rich people are evil, like rich can be literally you believe or if I'm rich, I'm, I'm, I'm bad, or anything like that. And then you see it, and you just change it. Sometimes that might be the way and that is great. But it really isn't always. And that is because there's different reasons, as we just talked about this idea of like, hey, it's actually served me that the subconscious holds on to it. I speak about four reasons which one reason is the gifts as we just said, like the good things that came out of the limiting beliefs is the fear of the positive belief, I have so much money, that no, I will lose all my friends, because we will get to bigger difference, for example. And then there is people in places, which is people that told you that. So for example, my father told me that and I'm part of the family, as we just said, because he believes that so I want to believe the same. And then as emotions, which has to do with forgiveness, letting go of anger and letting go of resentments or regret.   12:22 Right, so you just can't say a positive thing every day. And poof, the belief is expunged?   12:30 No, yeah, as I said, it's really great. Because sometimes, yes, sometimes that works. But if something is a bit deeper, it's really good to do some deeper work around it. And that is, yeah, what I hate if people feel bad because of that, they're like, Oh, I just did all my affirmations. And I noticed and still I don't do this, and they almost get angry with themselves. And I'm like, let's get really kind with ourselves, because it's nothing but your subconscious mind actually wanting to protect you and thinking, hey, this believe we've had this for a long time. We want to keep it Yeah, right.   13:07 Right. Okay, that makes a lot of sense. Okay, what's Myth number three.   13:12 Myth number three, that would be another side of the coin is that you can't change them. So some people think this is just the way you are, people don't change in the core as they are, this is how it is or, and that is not true. either. You can definitely change them, you can change them on a deep, subconscious level. And then it will be you will almost forget it. Like I get clients and I have forgotten that I felt that behavior. Normally I would get really nervous if I would get on stage and speak in front of people. And this time, I just didn't even feel anything because we shifted to believe that was causing that nervousness, for example.   13:54 Yeah, and I'm sure a lot of people even as they get older, so you know, I've, I've been around for 50 years, you're not going to change my beliefs. That's part of who I am. Right. So that must be challenging to work with someone like that. So how do you approach a person that may come to you and say, Well, this is me. Can't change it? Yeah,   14:15 absolutely. I mean, first of all, I would talk about the fact that a lot of the beliefs that we have appear to be the truth, and that this might be one of them. So I would challenge that and I would see if I could get an opening in and what if we could we could change in right now. And and and then it might take time to really embody it and to really integrate it in your life. But what if that wouldn't be possible?   14:50 Yeah. And then it gets people thinking, Well, I mean, well, what if it did happen, then what would the outcome of that be what would my life look like? If I was able to, to change some of these beliefs that I think are impossible to change.   15:06 Yeah, exactly. I would also explain that. And this makes it quite concrete, I think that we have, you know, you have all the outer circumstances in life, the things that we experience. And then sometimes we feel powerless over those circumstances. Yet, the moment that you become empowered is when you think, Okay, this is the circumstance, I don't know, what would be a good example something that we're not happy with.   15:36 Let's say your what's your it'd be a good example. You. I mean, we can you can't find people to join your or to to be a part of your online course you you're launching an online course you've launched it, it's been a couple of months, and it's crickets no one's coming. So must mean oh, well, I just as I thought it's not good enough. No one's coming.   16:10 Exactly. Okay. Great example. So we have that circumstance, not selling anything, you did a whole launch did all the work, and it didn't work. So now, if your foot is exactly that must mean, it's not good enough, this is not gonna work, then you can ask yourself, Okay, I have that thought about the circumstance. I have that thought, what kind of what emotion does that create? So if I think you see is not good enough, I'm gonna feel a little sad and tired, I think and not so motivated to start over again. Then if I have that emotion, what kind of actions do I take? Maybe I quit it once. I, you know, I won't do it again. It's just like, I tried that this didn't work. And then I will have that results, it will never come. So this is how we and that is also how it works is like all the time does belief gets confirmed in life. That's how it works. So now when you change the thoughts, and you think, Hmm, interesting with curiosity, it didn't work this time. I am totally convinced that it can work. What can I change? Now you will have a different emotionally motivated, you're curious, maybe you'll ask a mentor or your hire a coach, I don't know what you'll do to figure that out. You take different actions, you launch it again, this time it sells out, yay. And then you have a different result. And then the belief will really be shifted. So this makes it I think, pretty concrete, and how those beliefs shape our reality, and how we actually have so much more power over our circumstances, no matter what happens, because we have power over what we think about him.   18:00 Yeah, I love that. And it, it's like, instead of looking at it as a complete failure, perhaps it's an opportunity to go a little deeper to do a little investigating. And to put it out again. Yes,   18:20 exactly. Yeah. And you know, if we go even a little deeper into that, for example, when I had my belief, I'm a failure, and some fat and I had actually a course that I sold it only to one person, and this person had in two weeks time asked for refunds. So imagine having that belief was horrible. It was so shit ashamed. You see, I'm a failure. So triggering that but having the understanding and then shifting, that belief was so powerful, not only for the business side, but in so many other areas of my life. So I now always say, Never waste a good trigger. If something like that happens. Yeah, that's amazing. We can find a belief we can shift it and that actually good news.   19:02 Wow, thanks for sharing that. What about myth number four?   19:08 Myth number four. Is that if you have that, yeah, we talked a little bit about that, but that it takes a lifetime to change them that if you've I've heard this often well, if you had something for 30 years, you will take 30 years to get rid of it. If you do and I really believe in going into that deep subconscious work. Because the conscious mind of course, it does a lot that the subconscious drives a lot of the behavior and results in the end, then you can actually change it in in a single session or in a in a moment. And then of course, as I said, it takes time to integrate it but they are Yeah, you can shift to believe in in a moment What has taken a lifetime to build? Yeah,   20:02 right. And I think that's important because a lot of people may think, Well, I don't have time to do this kind of work, because it's going to take months and months and months, years and years or a lifetime. I don't have the time.   20:15 Yeah, that that would be. It depends on how. So as I'll think about it right now is that it really saves me a lot of time, because instead of trying to change the outer reality, I'm going to get to the core shift the belief, and then the other reality on so many areas will change. So I think that that would be also my answer to that. And yes, indeed, it doesn't have to take you don't have to be in talk about it in therapy for a long, long time, you can actually find it another modality that works with this is EMDR. It has a similar approach. And yeah, I think it's very, very effective in a short amount of time.   21:05 Yeah. Because, you know, people these days, I mean, we can't even sit through, you know, an entire movie, sometimes going onto your phone or being distracted by a million things. And now you want to just short, tic TOCs, or short reels are all like, it seems our brain is primed to, to have the attention span for Do you know what I mean? So it's like, if it's gonna take a week, a month, years, whatever, people will throw up their hands and say, Oh, forget it. Yeah,   21:39 yes. And in a way, I think in a way, that is a way for the brain to avoid the possible, confronting things that this might bring up. So there is this feeling of I know, this might bring up things from my childhood or things that I find really painful. And I believe that that thought of like, I don't have time for that is actually a resistance to that might not because part of the work is in the moment maybe uncomfortable. Yeah,   22:17 yeah. So it's your brain saving you that discomfort and and protecting you essentially, that's what the I mean, our brains protect us, right? And so if, if the brain feels like, Oh, this is going to, no, I don't want to do this, it's going to be too uncomfortable. I'm going to protect you, we're not going to do it at all. If we compare it to like, the physical body. Like if, if you you were on a ledge, and it was a 10 foot drop, your brain would be like, Nope, because you're gonna probably hurt yourself, if you go down and jump off this 10 foot drop instead, why don't we take the long way around and use the stairs? To save to save ourselves? Right? So it's kind of the same thing. It's like the brain is just protecting you from what could be something that's uncomfortable that is going to make you do something you don't want to do.   23:08 Yeah, yeah, absolutely. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah,   23:11 that makes a lot of sense. Okay, what is myth? Number five? I feel like this is a big one.   23:17 Myth number five, is that the ones from your family that you can't change it? So this is a big one. And there are studies on that believes genetically or trauma genetically gets passed on, right? So there is and the experience is I just I've grown, this is who I am, we, my, my whole family lives this way. It's important for me to protect that. And I understand. And really, you know, sometimes when you change a certain belief or attitudes towards something, it might be that people are confused for a moment, or that it changes your dynamics with your parents or with your family or with your loved ones. And that fear, again, is underneath that as well. It is the most beautiful and empowering thing, I think to to realize that you can write your own story. That's how I think about it, that the family line comes with a certain story. But if you are feeling a desire to change that sort of story in some way that you actually can, and very often it actually changes the dynamic also for the better, very often it releases or unleashes things in the family that are actually really healing not only for you, but also for the people around you. Yeah,   24:50 yeah. So again, things can change. beliefs can change. So I'm going to recap myths one through five you'll let me know if I Don't get them. Right. So myth one is their thoughts just stuck on repeat. Myth number two, you just replace them with more positive thoughts. Myth number three can't change them hardwired? Sorry, I'm too old to change can't What is it? You can't teach an old dog new tricks, right? Exactly that myth number four, they take a lifetime to change. And myth number five, the ones from your family can't change. So all those are myths. So I think we've busted all of them. Now, a lot of people may think, oh, boy, subconscious mind, the brain. This all sounds a little too out there for me. So what would you say to folks who are resistant to go there? Because they think it's a little too out there?   25:47 Yeah. I would actually ask, like, imagine that you would see that as a belief, first of all, so that you would say, okay, I can, for a moment just play an experiment and the things that I see as true to my life. Let me see you this. Okay. That's the that's really the rooted belief that I have right now. And then play around with what if you would say, Yes, I'm going to completely subscribe to that idea. I'm going to think that limiting beliefs can be changed in a subconscious in one session, just like Melinda just said, like, what could possibly be bad about that? How could that be a bad thing? And that would actually be fierce around that whole idea. Now, maybe when you've determined that, why not give it a try? Like why you don't have to completely believe that it works that way. But why not give yourself the benefits of you know, give this whole idea to benefit of the doubt and just say like, you know what, I can experiment with it, I can just give it a go. And when a belief comes up, or when something comes up in your life that doesn't go the way that you wanted, or you have something that really triggers you in some way. Why not write down what you think the thoughts and the beliefs are that underneath that, remember that idea of we have the circumstance, the outer reality, and then we have the thoughts that creates a feeling the feeling creates an action and the action creates a result? So what if you would slightly change your foot around it? And just give yourself that that play of okay, well, good, what would that actually do to me?   27:32 Yeah, well, I love that. Can you say that again? So you start with the external, and then it goes to your thoughts. Go ahead. You complete it, because I thought that was really great.   27:42 Yeah, yeah. So yeah, so the external is a circumstance, the reality is the bank account that doesn't have enough money, the arm that hurts the I don't know. I don't know, boyfriend who is not calling like, I don't care, like whatever that is the business, as we said, the course that isn't failing. And then the thinking, okay, that's the circumstance. Now, what is my thought about him. And this is such a great first thing to do to become aware of the thought about it, you know, that these thoughts goes so fast, because you've practiced that a lot. So these wires in that house that is wired in a brain that is just happening so fast, that you might perceive them as the truth, but slow down, and just write down this is the thought, the foot creates a feeling or an emotion. And that emotion creates an action. So as we just said, If I feel a little disappointed and powerless, I might not take action, or I'll stop my business at all my online course thing at all. And that action creates results. So here's where you can see that the belief the forts, in the hands created the river, so not the circumstance.   29:00 I love it. I think that's great. And what a fantastic takeaway I was going to ask, okay, what do you really want the listeners to take away and I have to tell you, I think you beat me to the punch, because that's great. And it also shows, like we say, in the physical therapy world, I work with a lot of people with chronic pain, that the brain has plasticity, the brain can change. Yes. And it's not just in the physical. So what you're saying is you have these circumstances, here's your initial thought about it, if we can change that thought, perhaps the emotion connected to that which we sort of comes out of that amygdala area of the brain, that can be changed, that can be altered because the brain is plastic, and it can change. And I think that's such a great way to button up this conversation. I love it. I'm gonna think about that. Now. Every time something happens in and I have a thought and be like, Okay, wait a second. So Slow it down. What if I thought about it differently, I may have a different feeling. But then most importantly, your action will be different. So instead of saying my corset and tell I'm going to curl up in a ball on my bed and never leave, instead, it's my Corsten cell. Okay? Let me that could be an opportunity for me to go in and look at it, maybe jigger things up and see if I can, I can change things to make it a little bit more appealing. So then your action would be way different. So instead of curling up in a ball, it's let's edit this course, which are two very different things.   30:37 Exactly, exactly. Yeah, that's it. I love that.   30:40 Yeah, I love it. I think that's awesome. Now, where can people find you if they want to learn more about you, they want to work with you. Go ahead.   30:51 Great. Okay, so you can find me on all the socials, you can find my website, which is where Linda morris.com If you're listening, maybe not so easy. to spell that one, I do have a little mini course on how to shift any limiting belief. And I made a tiny URL, it's just to make things easy. And that would be tinyurl.com/shift. Any limiting belief altogether. So little sentence, that one, I think is a great one to have. It has a couple of videos and some PDFs, where all of the things that we just talked about gets explained a little bit more in depth and just give you a simple process to do it or try it out for yourself.   31:41 Awesome. And we'll have all the links at podcast at healthy, wealthy smart.com. So that you can go on and click and take a take this limiting shift any limiting belief course. So we will have all of the and links to all of your social media and everything else as well. Now, before we go the last question, which is when I asked everyone, and that's knowing where you are now in your life, and in your career, what advice would you give to your younger self?   32:13 Yes. So I would really tell my long younger self to be more trusting of the things that I felt that I want to I've been always doing things I would say kind of against the status quo. I've even had a teacher one who said you always have to make the impossible possible. And now it would be like okay, trust yourself, and then it's gonna turn out okay. And even if somebody else doesn't believe it, or doesn't see it, if you have the vision or the idea or the feeling or the impulse, that is the thing to follow. So that is what I would say. I think   32:55 that is wonderful advice for your younger self and for all of our listeners listening today. So Linda, thank you so much for coming on sharing all this info. And again, everyone will have all of her Linda's information at podcast at healthy wealthy smart.com. So Linda, thank you so much for coming on the podcast.   33:14 Thank you, Karen. Really lovely to be here.   33:17 And everyone. Thanks so much for listening, have a great couple of days and stay healthy, wealthy and smart.

#321 Aquariumscheibe verkratzt, Scheibe austauschen?

DER Meerwasseraquariumpodcast mit Markus Mahl

Ich werde immer wieder gefragt, was es kostet eine Scheibe von einem Aquarium auszutauschen weil sie verkratzt ist und ob es sich noch lohnt. Und in den meisten Fällen lautet die Antwort nein. Da ist für viele Aquarianer häufig nicht nachvollziehbar, da sie der Ansicht sind, dass es ja verhältnismäßig leicht ist die Scheibe auszutauschen. Doch bei genauerer Betrachtungsweise stellt man schnell fest, dass es doch sehr aufwendig und vor allem sehr zeitintensiv ist.  Und der hohe Zeitaufwand ist es dann der den ganzen Vorgang am Schluß meistens teuer macht. Aber warum ist es überhaupt so zeitintensiv? Meistens sind die Becken um die es geht in der Regel schon etwas älter, so dass es keine Sinn gibt, nur die Silikonnähte der Scheibe, die ausgetauscht werden soll, heraus zu schneiden. Denn am Schluß wenn alles fertig ist,  hat man dann eine Mischung aus den alten und neuen Silikonnähten. Was bedeutet, dass die Haltbarkeit der verschiedenen Silikonnähte auch verschieden lang ist und ggf. bei den alten Silikonnähten in einem überschaubaren Zeitraum dann das nächste Problem auftritt. Das erzeugt nicht nur wieder Kosten, sondern bedeutet auch einen großen Aufwand, dass das Aquarium wieder komplett entleert  und die Tiere während der Trocknungsdauer des Silikons zwischengehältert werden müssen.  Um dir hier mal ein Gefühl für die Trocknungsdauer geben zu können, gibt es eine Faustregel die besagt, dass die Trocknungsdauer einen Tag pro Milimeter Glasstärke beträgt. Das bedeutet, wenn du ein 12 mm starkes Glas hast, muss das Aquariensilikon mindestens 12 Tage lang unter optimalen Bedingungen aushärten bevor das Aquarium befüllt werden darf. Diese Faustregel dient lediglich als grober Anhaltspunkt. Hierbei sind immer die Aushärtezeiten im technischen Datenblatt des verwendeten Silikons zu nehmen.  Besonderes Augenmerk bei der Aushärtedauer von Silikon gilt im Bereich wo die Glasspangen auf die Längsstege aufgeklebt werden. Denn an diesen Flächen gelangt sehr wenig Sauerstoff in die Silikonnaht und dadurch verlängert sich die Aushärtedauer immens.  Je weiter dieser Bereich der Silikonnaht von aussen noch innen aushärtet umso weniger Sauerstoff gelangt tatsächlich in den innersten Bereich der Silikonnaht. Wir haben bei Trests festgestellt, dass diese großflächigen Verklebungen teilweise nach 3 - 4 Wochen, wenn wir die Spange heruntergeschnitten hatten immer noch feucht war. Aber lass uns wieder zum Aufwand zurückkommen, der entsteht wenn eine Scheibe oder auch mehrere Scheiben ausgetauscht werden sollen. Im ersten Schritt werden, wenn es vernünftig gemacht werden soll die Spangen und Stege herausgeschnitten. Und hier kommt es häufig zum ersten Problem und zwar dass sich die große Klebefläche von der Spange und dem Steg nicht vernünftig voneinander trennen lassen und hierbei immer wieder der Steg, die Spange oder auch beides beschädigt werden. Das gleiche Problem tritt im Bereich der Bodenscheibe auf, wenn dort Bodenzugleisten eingeklebt wurden. Sobald die Spangen und Stege herausgeschnitten sind werden mit einem Fugenmesser die Innennähte aus dem Becken herausgeschnitten, so dass im Anschluss mit dem Cuttermesser die senkrechten Nähte durchtrennt werden können. Wenn hier die Abstände der Scheibe sehr gering sind und die Silikonnaht dadurch auch, wird es schwierig, da sich dann das Cuttermesser nicht gut nach unten ziehen lässt und häufig klemmt. Hierbei muss man besonders vorsichtig sein, da die Klingen von Cuttermessern sehr schnell  brechen und du dann mit voller Wucht mit der Hand nach unten knallst. Wenn es blöd läuft ziehst du dir dabei eine tiefe Schnittwunde zu, wenn du an dem im Silikon steckenden Klingenrest hängen bleibst.  Deshalb solltest du bei solchen Arbeiten immer Schnitthandschuhe tragen. Wenn dann alle Scheibe voneinander getrennt wurden beginnt eigentlich erst der große Aufwand der richtig Zeit kosten. Das rückstandslose Entfernen des alten Silikons von den Scheiben. Hierbei muss sehr sorgfältig gearbeitet werden, da sonst das neue Silikon keine dauerhaft dichte Verbindung mit dem Glas eingehen kann. Wer das schon einmal gemacht hat, weiß wie lästig es sein kann Silikonreste von den gesamten Klebeverbindungen zu lösen. Wenn das dann geschafft ist, müssen die neuen Klebestellen gereinigt werden. Das bedeutet, dass mit einem speziellen Reiniger die Klebeflächen staub- und fettfrei gemacht werden, bevor die neue Silikonnaht eingespritzt wird. Jetzt stellt sich natürlich die Frage wann rechnet sich der ganze Aufwand überhaupt. Wenn z.B. ein 600 Liter Becken bereits ein paar Jahre alt ist, kannst du davon ausgehen, dass es billiger ist ein neues Becken zu kaufen als das Alte zu zerlegen und neu verkleben.  Denn wenn du alle Kosten die entstehen wie Anfahrt, Arbeitszeit, Silikon und die neue Scheibe zusammen rechnest ist, gibt es in der Regel keinen Sinn das alte Aquarium zu behalten.  Wir haben das z.B. bei einem 4000 Liter Meerwasserbecken gemacht, da hier das Verhältnis noch gepasst hat. Das liegt aber daran, dass der Preis für 40 mm starke Scheiben so hoch ist, da es sich der entstehende Aufwand immer noch rechnet. Bei kleineren Becken bis 1000 Liter kannst du in der Regel davon ausgehen, dass der Neukauf immer billiger ist. Aber es gibt ein paar Möglichkeiten diese Kosten zu umgehen, wenn du folgende Dinge beachtest, dass keine Kratzer in die Scheiben kommen. Punkt eins: Nimm immer, wenn du die Scheiben reinigst sämtliche Ringe von den Finger, so kannst du keine Kratzer auf die Aussenseite der Scheibe bekommen. Punkt zwei: Sei mit dem Algenmagnet besonders im Bereich des Aquarienbodens vorsichtig damit dir der Korallensand nicht unter das Algenmagnet kommt. hier entstehen die meisten Kratzer. Punkt drei: Tausche regelmäßig die Klingen bei den Klingenreinigern aus. Stumpfe oder sogar rostende Klingen verursachen sehr schnell Kratzer. Der Preis von Klingen ist nicht so hoch im Vergleich zu den Kosten die entstehen, wenn du dir einen Kratzer in die Scheibe machst. Die beste Möglichkeit um Kratzer zu vermeiden ist absolute Sorgfalt bei Scheibenreinigen.   Viel Spaß mit der neuen Folge.

Innovation InsightsWith Donny ShimamotoCenter for Accounting TransformationToday's Take-aways:Accountants were the pioneers of business use of database software with the accounting systems—the first wave of accounting technology. The second wave was the move into the cloud, and the third wave now uses AI in accounting technology.AI uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and Natural Language Procession (NLP) can be used to read documents like PDFs and Excel and extract the relevant data like lease dates into the database where they can be used for computations or searching.Because you're starting with the source document (e.g. PDF, Excel) and extracting the data from there to then put the data into the system, you can trace data back all the way to the source document all within the same system (not just to the point where someone keyed the data into the system).The goal isn't for the machines (AI) to do everything,, but instead to complete 70-80% of the grunt work and allow the accountant or auditor to focus on the analytics and strategic work.Small and regional firms can gain an advantage by partnering with accounting technology vendors, enabling them to innovate and incorporate technology into their services more quickly than the larger firms.

As creative entrepreneurs, we're constantly trying to grow our businesses by reaching more people with valuable information and solutions to the problems they're facing. And, because our prospects are spending more time online than ever before, it makes sense to meet them where they are—which is often in their inboxes. But, how do you convince more people to sign up for your emails, engage with your content, and eventually become happy customers? Believe it or not, online quizzes are one of the most effective ways to build your email list. When you give website visitors helpful, personalized information within a fun, engaging quiz, of course they'd want to share their email address with you to get even more of your great content! But, how do you create a quiz your audience will actually want to take, and how can you easily build a quiz and add it to your website? Today's guest, Josh Haynam, shares his expertise on quiz-building and converting leads into customers. Josh is the co-founder of Interact Quiz Builder, a software that helps creative entrepreneurs build leads and make sales by connecting with customers through engaging and personalized quizzes. The very first quiz he and his co-founder made in 2014 converted at 40%, while the websites they were building only converted at 2%. Because of this crazy successful conversion rate, Josh went all in on quiz-building to help his clients generate leads.  Today, Interact customers enjoy the same 40% average conversion rate with personalized and engaging quizzes that generate 42,000 new leads per day. (For comparison, landing pages with downloadable PDFs only have a 10-14% average conversion rate. That's quite a difference!) By creating interactive and relatable quizzes that entice people to sign up for more information, creative entrepreneurs can stand out in their industries and form a connection with their leads. In this episode of Priority Pursuit, Josh explains how you can build your email list using quizzes that are fun, engaging, and relatable to your audience. In this episode, Josh discusses: Why creative entrepreneurs need to build their email lists Why you should build your email list using quizzes When & how to use a quiz for lead generation Examples of quizzes creative entrepreneurs can make How creative entrepreneurs can add quizzes to their websites  You can find a more detailed version of this episode's show notes at:  https://victoriarayburnphotography.com/build-email-list-using-quizzes.  Mentioned Links & Resources Book a Free Quiz Strategy Call with Interact - https://www.tryinteract.com/demo/  Visit the Interact Blog - https://www.tryinteract.com/blog/  What Type of Quiz Should You Make for Your Online Quiz? - https://www.tryinteract.com/examples/  Save 50% on Your First Six Months of Quickbooks Self-Employed - http://victoriarayburnphotography.com/quickbooks/ Receive 50% Off Your First Order with Photographer's Edit - http://victoriarayburnphotography.com/pe/  Receive $20 Off Your First Pair of Rothy's - http://victoriarayburnphotography.com/rothys Join the Priority Pursuit Podcast Facebook Community - https://www.facebook.com/groups/179106264013426   Follow or DM Victoria on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/victorialrayburn/  Follow Victoria on Pinterest - https://www.pinterest.com/victoriarayburnphotography/

how to deal with a client that is constantly rearranging or not showing up. They have the attitude of 'I'm paying her so she should be accommodating when would you start talking about lanuching a free challenge or trial to your service How can I get my clients to take me seriously after a holiday when I'm severely overweight and lost the plot ? I had a client ask for a refund last week after 7days with me. I'm going to re look at my on boarding process but is there anything else I shud look at to avoid this in future? For the long term play of being in a position to coach other coaches around building a successful coaching business as you guys are doing. What would you say are some of the key attributes, things to consider and boxes to be ticked with regard taking this leap? "When you have something you want to build, another offer/ service, which is for your TM and an area you know really well, at what point do you know that it's the ideal time to start to work on this while managing to keep the rest of your business going? I feel like I'm in a really good place with my marketing, time management etc but I don't want to see this side of things slip as I focus on other things. I also want to save as much as I can for our future and reinvesting into my business. I know my values and I know my goals as I revisit these often and this new project is a huge part of both and something I wanted to start this year. Sometimes I worry that I move too fast and take risks a lot more than I used to, so I don't want to do this too soon when I don't have a big enough audience or enough experience etc PS I probably should talk about this on a mentoring call and not a Q&A haha." "When dealing with online enquiries, and they ask “how much do you charge?” Is it better to just come out and say it to be upfront and honest? Or try and arrange a chat with them so they see the value beyond the price barrier? I have tried both but don't seem to have a grasp of it yet." Ideas / How to go about go about using a survey on the gym floor for getting leads with the intent of pushing them into online coaching. I have sent some personalised emails this week - e.g. picking up conversations in the gym or from previous messages and just checking in. However, I haven't had any real engagement (I have sent around 9-10). Should I add a solid Call to Action at the bottom of the emails? Direct them to something relevant for them? e.g. a nutrition consultation, a relevant class etc From your experience, how much 'deep' should we delve into regards nutrition for Gen Pop? And best way to deliver? Eg. Short snappy videos in high quantity? To the point PDFs? Plenty of visuals, less words? Combo of all?! Cheers soft cock.

One-Size-fits all, passt halt nicht immer für alle, vor allem dann nicht, wenn Du Deinen Lernenden dabei auch im Kopf und Blick hast.   Es reicht aus meiner Sicht eben nicht mehr aus noch ein paar hübsche PDFs zusätzlich in den Kurs zu packen. Iris Komarek von mindSystems zum Beispiel erstellt statt eines PDFs ein Flipbook, wo die Teilnehmenden virtuell durchblättern können und sogar ein Ton beim Umblättern abgespielt wird.   Warum nicht auch mal einen QR-Code einbinden mit einer Verlinkung zu weiteren Material (Video, Podcast oder Artikel). Einem gemeinsamen Event, so wie ich es jetzt bei der LernOS erlebt habe. Im Vorfeld habe ich ein Päckchen bekommen mit zwei Suppen und einem Becher sowie Getränken. Nicht nur liebevoll verpackt, sondern auch noch nachhaltig.    Versuche alle Sinne Deiner Teilnehmenden einzubinden, vielleicht etwas haptisches, schmackhaftes oder duftendes. Geht nicht, dann befindest Du Dich gerade in Deiner Komfortzone. Du kannst Deinen Teilnehmenden auch gerne eine Kleinigkeit mit regionalen Bezug im Vorfeld schicken, so gibt es auch einen weiteren Grund sich über Dich und Dein Produkt auszutauschen.    Deine Liebe und die Energie zu Deinem Produkt, zu Deiner Region und Deinen Teilnehmenden sollte spürbar werden.   Inhalt:

# 320 Mangelerscheinungen und Hautschäden bei Meerwasserfischen

DER Meerwasseraquariumpodcast mit Markus Mahl

Ich habe diese Woche einen neuen Wartungsvertrag von einem Meerwasseraquarium übernommen. Hierbei wird  das bestehende 800 Liter Aquarium in den nächsten Tagen komplett entleert, auseinander geschnitten und entsorgt. Danach wird das Aquarium durch ein neues Becken und eine komplett neue Aquarientechnik ausgetauscht. Die Aquarientechnik wird in diesem Zuge in den darunterliegenden Keller verlegt, da es den Kunden sehr wichtig ist, dass das neuen Meerwasser-becken absolut leise ist. Damit die Rohre in den Keller verlegt werden können, wurde bereits direkt unter dem Aquarium eine Kernbohrung durch die Betondecke durchge-führt. Der Fischbesatz des Aquarium besteht aus mehreren Doktorfischen, einem Pinzettfisch und einer Zebramuräne. Auffällig bei allen ist Fisch, dass sich die oberen Hautschichten im Kopfbe-reich teilweise komplett abgelöst haben.  Dies zieht sich fast bei allen Fischen bis zum Ansatz der Rückenflosse fort. Dort wo die Fischschleimhaut ursprüngliche bunt gefärbt war sind nur noch große weiße Flecken vorhanden, die von groben Hautkanten umgeben sind. Solche starke Probleme mit der Fischschleimhaut haben häufig ihren Ursprung in einer sehr langen Fehlernährung, deren Folge dann starke Mangelerscheinungen sind. Auch in diesem Fall liegt die Ursache der Fütterung.  Die Fische wurde über Jahre mit Süßwassertrockenfutter ernährt.  Süßwassertrockenfutter wird auf den Bedarf von Süßwasserfischen und nicht von Meerwasserfischen entwickelt. Dadurch fehlen lebenswichtige Inhaltsstoffe für Meerwasserfische. Neben dem genannten Trockenfutter bekamen die Fische noch rote und weiße Mückenlarven. Der Vorteil momentan ist, dass alle Fische sehr gut fressen und keiner das Futter verweigert. Wir haben jetzt im ersten Schritt das Futter sofort auf das Dr. Basslers Bio Fishfood Garlic umgestellt. Das ist die Futtersorte die wir hauptsächlich bei allen unserer Wartungs-kunden verwenden. BASSLEER BIOFISH FOOD GARLIC enthält natürlichen Knoblauch. Der Vorteil ist, dass es auch von bereits erkrankten Zierfischen, die häufig unter Appetitlosigkeit leiden, gern gefressen wird.  Knoblauch enthält den natürlichen Pflanzenwirkstoff Allicin sowie einen sehr hohen Anteil an Mangan, Vitamin B6, außerordentlich viele Spurenelemente (Selen, Jod, Germanium, etc.) und Enzyme. Um die wertvollen Inhaltsstoffe zu schonen wird ausschließlich frischer Knoblauch (kein Granulat) nach dem Granulierprozess zugemischt. Ein weiterer Vorteil von diesem Granulatfutter ist, dass die Körner verschieden schnell absinken und dadurch jeder Fisch, egal in welcher Wasserschicht, oben unten oder in der Mitte aufhält gut versorgt wird. Um die Fische adhoc noch besser mit Vitaminen zu versorgen, sprühen wir das Granulatfutter jeden zweiten Tag mit Power Fish von Dr. Bassler ein.  Power Fish ist enthält Vitaminen und Spurenelementen und reichert das Granulatfutter an. Wie das Power Fish genau funktioniert und was es für Bestandteile enthält erfährst du in der Podcastfolge  313. Den Link zur Folge findest du in der Podcastbeschreibung. Ich habe selbst noch nie so starke Mangelerscheinungen bei Meerwasser-fischen gesehen. Ich kenne nur die typischen leichten Veränderungen der Schleimhaut bei Doktorfischen im Kopfbereich, jedoch nicht so stark wie in diesem Fall, dass sich diese in ganzen Fetzen abgelöst haben. Deshalb bin ich sehr gespannt, ob sich die Schleimhaut wieder erholt und wenn ja wie lange es dauern wird. Hier findest du die Podcastfolge zu >>>> Power Fish Viel Spaß mit der neuen Folge.

It's the final episode of our second series. So to finish up, we're going to be doing something a little bit different. This week we're bringing you 10 new startups for the price of one! 10 cool early stage European startups from Procurement Summit I recently attended Procurement Summit in Hamburg. It's a fun, pleasingly non-corporate showcase for new companies in the digital procurement space. Where else would you find a Mario Kart competition at a procurement conference? I saw loads of exciting new ideas there, and I'd like to share ten of the best new startups that caught my eye during the conference's pitch event. 1. Flowciety Flowciety won the startup pitch event this year, and with good reason. They're a Berlin-based startup, all about data exchange and process automation, across both internal departments and external third parties. This automation enables you to have a fully auditable trail, avoiding PDFs and emails in favour of realtime tracking. It also enables you to manage supply chain and inventory across, for example, a subcontracted part of an external process. https://flowciety.de/ (Link to Flowciety website) 2. Shouldcosting This Swiss-based startup aims to make companies more competitive by using their internal data more effectively. This is a really smart calculation tool that takes things from the bottom up. It's a data driven engine that estimates product prices based on CAD drawings, specifications and materials. It estimates the cost of raw materials and of cost changes per part, based on engineering changes during the new product development process, or on commodity price movements in our increasingly volatile world. It also calculates labour costs and provides advanced analytics and material grouping. https://www.shouldcosting.com/en/ (Link to Shouldcosting website) 3. Hivebuy Hivebuy is a source to contract solution, strongly focused on process optimisation for small to medium sized businesses. The solution supports companies in budgeting, requesting and ordering services for their business. It also establishes better purchasing conditions for your business, through pooling of pricing on popular catalogues. Obviously this is quite market-dependant, and the company has a strong focus on Germany at the moment, but I'm told that they are looking to expand this scope. The software relies an intuitively designed approval process that link departments with a simple communication flow and approvals process. Control features offer a transparent dashboard for budget management per department. Hivebuy also offers supplier catalogues both externally and internally, along with contract management and repository as part of their more top end plans. It's a unique spin in a crowded niche, which I find very interesting. https://hivebuy.de/en/ (Link to Hivebuy website) 4. TrueLedger This startup from Zurich is a professional services platform focused on external workforce. According to their presentation, 30% of human capital is now external contractors, and this represents 42% of a company's spend on people, on average. As opposed to other external workforce platforms that focus on audit and legal compliance, these guys are very much focused on smart contracting as a way to reduce costs. TrueLedger offers many forms of control here: Time and materials contracts, cost ceilings, standard contracts, and risk sharing, across both blue collar and white collar. All of which flows through to automatic invoicing and ERP integration. https://www.trueledger.net/ (Link to TrueLedger website) 5. Lhotse Analyitcs Lhotse are very much focused on industrial manufacturing companies, from the midmarket to enterprise. Because these are often low margin industries, it's crucial to have better data that creates measurable value. They claim that their software can produce 7.5% savings on average to their customers, using market intelligence and cost breakdowns to offer...

For individuals experiencing incontinence, situations and the products used to address them differ from person to person. Anatomy, medical conditions, preferences, and life responsibilities all contribute to how one individual's needs will vary from the other. In this episode of ‘Attached to Hygiene', host Jack Hughes is again joined by Alan Cottenden, Emeritus Professor of Incontinence Technology at University College London. Jack and Alan chat with three North American consumers—Paul, Beth, and Twila—about their experiences with incontinence. How do the three manage day-to-day circumstances with the condition? What products do they use, and how? And what changes and innovations do they hope to see?Managing incontinence with a variety of absorbent hygiene productsIncontinence can impact those with the condition in a variety of ways, from small leaks to a sudden and complete emptying of the bladder or bowels. Combine that with daily agendas that do—or don't—allow easy access to a bathroom, and incontinent consumers may use several different products with regularity. Even so, finding adequate protection can be difficult. For example, those who experience high flow may not be able to find products that can absorb the volume quickly enough to avoid leakage.Whilst all three of the panellists shared how being open and honest about their condition makes managing it easier, discretion remains an issue for each of them. Clothing may be selected based on the absorbent products they wear. They also worry about the sound of the product, such as crinkling ,becoming noticeable. Once the product is wet, several things can weigh on the user: Odour, the feeling of wetness, and even the fear of an additional release causing leakage. Another concern is changing articles in public restrooms, especially those that are not kept clean. Pull-on products in particular may offer excellent protection, but they can be impossible to change without removing pants or shoes. Sufferers would welcome anything that helps make the condition more manageable and reduces the stress that accompanies it.Outline of the Episode[03:51] Introduction to the three panellists and an overview of their types of incontinence [13:33] Deciding when and how to be discreet or disclose their condition[19:19] Each day's activities determine the products that are needed[22:22] The challenges of travelling with incontinence, especially by air[26:04] The pros and cons of using menstrual products for incontinence[30:04] Days are not always predictable … wearing extra protection just in case [36:29] Discretion relies on controlling how you look, plus odour and sound[43:16] The panellists' wish list for absorbent hygiene product innovations[57:44] Differences in managing incontinence now versus several years ago[01:04:17] Benefits to being open about your condition and experiencesResourcesYou can find Alan on LinkedIn.

We took some questions from the audience, too, and put it all together for you here on Scoring Notes. Later this month, we'll release some brief bonus segments featuring conversations we had with our librarian colleagues, so look for those in your Scoring Notes podcast feed.

My job as the leadership hacker is to hack into the minds, experiences, habits and learning of great leaders, C-Suite executives, authors and development experts so that I can assist you developing your understanding and awareness of leadership. I am Steve Rush, and I am your host today. I am the author of Leadership Cake. I am a transformation consultant and leadership coach. I cannot wait to start sharing all things leadership with you   Our special guest on today's show is Tim Bradshaw. He's a foreign British Army Intelligence Officer and recruited and run foreign agents worldwide as a Human Intelligent Officer. He's also the author of a great book, Because I can, but before we get a chance to speak with Tim, it's The Leadership Hacker News. The Leadership Hacker News Steve Rush: Leadership is about us everywhere. And I wanted to dive in to find some funny, and innovative ways of us, bringing some of those leadership lessons to life. So, if ever you've watched a movie Star Wars or any of the Star Wars Trilogy, you'll find loads of leadership lessons packed within there. Yoda is one of my favorites. He has this great saying that said. Do or not do, there is no try. And I'm often using that lighthearted analogy with any of my coaching conversations, but a long time ago in a galaxy far away, the leadership lessons were created amongst this epic series of films. So, here's a few, it's been proven that being born with talent is not enough. As we all know, Luke Skywalker is born with a natural talent to be a Jedi. Yet when, we watch the movies. We know that was not a given. He had to work hard at that. We watched Luke come to grips with putting himself in challenging situations and homing in on that force. And there are traits of good leadership, but true leadership takes place, self-reflection and mentoring, which we also saw through their relationship with Yoda. Adaptability is also a key leadership lesson throughout the Star Wars movies, all of those Star Wars movies demonstrate that life does not always go to plan. And if you are rigid in your plans are stuck in your ways, you're not going to win. From Han Solo, adapting, a broken hyper drive by hiding by the rubbish shoot instead of a surprise alliance along the way. If you're able to adapt and think quickly, you're able to lead a team through any surprises. We know it's okay to ask for help as leaders. Sometimes you can't get yourself out of a situation without calling on someone else. When Princess Leia was in a bind, she'd always know the right people to call and ask for help without hesitation. Some good leaders need other good leaders to advise them on their journey. And the one thing that is really true across all of the movies that chasing power is the path to the dark side. Leaders undeniably have power and authority, but leadership is much more than that. Once you begin to be at attracted to power and to chase power, you are heading to the dark side. Good leadership is all about sharing power and authority and creating more leaders. It's about people with good ideas and evolving those good ideas so that everyone becomes more powerful. So, the next time you hear yourself saying, I'll try, just think you've been Yoda. Do or don't do, there is no try. Let's get into the show. Start of Podcast Steve Rush: Timothy Bradshaw, is a special guest on today's show. He's a former British Army Intelligence Officer and graduate of the Royal Military Academy of Sandhurst. His work as a Covert Human Intelligent Officer and Target Acquisition Patrol Soldier saw him recruit and run foreign agents worldwide and influence the outcome of extremely sensitive and dangerous situations. Recently Tim's been running missions to Ukraine, delivering really, really important aid. He's a keynote speaker and he's also the author of the book, Because I can. Tim, welcome to the show. Timothy Bradshaw: Thanks Steve. Thanks very much for having me on. Steve Rush: Really looking forward to getting into the diverse world of Timothy Bradshaw. And remember from the first time that you met and how you described what you did in the army and in your work as an Intelligence Officer, I think I might have called you the James Bond [laugh] at the time. Timothy Bradshaw: I mean, that's very flattering and unfortunately every time somebody says that I caught so much flack off all of my friends, but. Steve Rush: [Laugh]. Timothy Bradshaw: I'll take it Steve. I've definitely been called worse things. Steve Rush: I think your response to me at the time, Tim, if I remember rightly was, and you might have had the work of James Bond, but you certainly didn't have the dinner suits and the expense account. Timothy Bradshaw: No, absolutely not. And I'm still waiting for the Aston Martin as well. Steve Rush: That's it, yeah. So, tell us a little bit about you Tim, your early backstory and give that listens a little bit of a spin through to how you've arrived to do what you do. Timothy Bradshaw: It's not that exciting, Steve really, which I think is almost kind of the point. You know, we talk about resilience and all this sort of stuff and actually I haven't done anything that essentially anybody else couldn't have done if they wanted to. I did my A-levels. I finished school. I kind of looked at university alongside everybody else and realized that I was doing that really, because that was kind of what everybody else did. Not really what my sort of passion was, and maybe there's a bit of a theme there that'll continue. So, I was offered a place to go to the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. I literally just turned 18 in the October and went in the January. So was really very young. I quite often laugh when we talk about leadership. My first ever job out of school was sort of leading 37 soldiers aged 19, by the time I got to that point. And frankly probably wasn't very good at it. Who's very good at their first ever job out of school, but I had a lot of training, and a lot of backups. So, made the best I could really. I've kind of never really done anything else. So very much experienced based career, I guess. And I did that and that was the kind of the mid-nineties. And I went out to Germany. Ironically, it's really funny looking back now, I say funny, slightly tongue in cheek, but obviously we were very much kind of the end of the sort of cold war doctrine and everything we were looking at was very much basically about the Russian Army coming across the Eastern German planes which with what's going on now, obviously out in Ukraine, seems a little bit surreal, to be honest. Steve Rush: Yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: But anyway, and I sort of did that for a bit and it was bit of a lull really, an activity, certainly for the sort of regular army at the time. And then I pursued a career in training after I served out my commission and subsequently once sort of Iraq and Afghanistan kicked off, I looked to go back to the military. I felt as though I had kind of unfinished business and hadn't finished serving yet. I've always had quite a strong desire to serve rightly or wrongly. So, I decided to go back and a friend of mine had said to me, oh, you should look at, you know, look at reserves and I said, crikey you're joking. You know, to me, the TA sort of, as was, was dad's army. And, you know, that's absolutely not the case anymore. So, I went through a patrol selection course, which is a particularly arduous sort of running over the Hills, big ruck sacks, small teams, very much becoming self-reliant, self-sufficient, relying on your teammates in small groups as a buildup, really to go towards Afghanistan. And then I kind of thought to myself, well, if I'm going to do this, I want to do something that perhaps my interim years as a civilian brings something to the party rather than putting me behind the curve. So Human Intelligence is, is exactly that, it's about building relationships and influence. And actually, you know, we always sort of joke, but if you having to use the cars as the guns, you've kind of got it wrong, essentially. It's absolutely about building relationships and influencing people. So, bit of a sucker for punishment, really, I put myself through yet another grueling selection process. Steve Rush: [laugh]. Timothy Bradshaw: Its theme isn't it, really. And we did that. I passed a course and then what ensued was a fascinating few years working with some truly inspirational people on all sides of the divide, really. Some of those obviously worked for essentially terrorist organizations. Some of those were people that absolutely keen to help their communities. But the theme was always the same. It was always about relationships and influence. And I was doing some keynote speaking the other day and I sort of laughed and somebody ask, how could you sum it up? And I was trying to think of a sort of corporate analogy. And I said, well, imagine trying to lead or influence somebody that not only do they not work for you, but in fact they work for your biggest competitor. And that was about the best I could come up with really. Obviously trying to persuade somebody who has very strong views of their own that actually there might be a different way or a better path and to give you, essentially feed you in intelligence. So yeah, so that's what we did. Did that for a few years, which was truly fascinating. Couple of tour Afghanistan. I did point out to somebody recently whose head went down a little bit talking about lockdown. And I think I calculated that I have actually spent more time in Afghanistan than I have in lockdown. Steve Rush: Wow, yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: And I don't actually know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, to be honest with you, but it is a fact. And then I think having left the military. Again, I have a very low boredom threshold Steve, which I think is, probably the theme. But actually, for me, I've always been quite a big advocate of mental health. I've always struggled a little bit with sort of depression and anxiety. It's not a good thing or a bad thing. It's just the way my brain works really. And you know, it's a bit like a bank account in some of the respects. You take out, so therefore you have to pay back in. Anyway, we decided as a team must that we try and climb Mount Everest and shout from the highest point on earth that it was okay to ask for help. So, we did, we picked the wrong year. We did it in 2015, which those of you that into mountaineering or the region will know was when all the sort of major earthquakes hit. So, we found ourselves in the middle of one of the biggest natural disasters sorts of ever to happen, certainly in that region, really. So again, it kind of turned on its head our whole outlook on what was going on and certainly tested our resilience in a very different way to the one we perhaps spent two years planning and training to do. Which again, I think we talk about leadership aren't we Steve really. For me, that's one of the themes is, it's that ability to flex, adapt and overcome actually, rather than when it's all going perfectly. Steve Rush: Yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: And then, yeah, and then having done that, we've transitioned into doing this and we do all sorts of wacky stuff. And then we now run a company. And for me it's about, can I share my lessons as accurately as possible? We were joking, weren't we Steve, just before we went live that there's a lot of self-help stuff around, you know, and it's like, yeah, get a growth mindset, do this and do that. And you kind of think, yeah, I'll do that, how? Steve Rush: Yeah, exactly. Timothy Bradshaw: And that's really what the book was about. The book was a kind of user guide almost to dealing with some of these problems. So rather than a kind of conceptual you know, big yourself up and feel better, it was right, do this. When this happens, do this [laugh] and I guess that then led, I was sitting on the sofa, we were watching what's happening in Ukraine. And my now wife looked at me and said, you could probably do something to help that couldn't you. And I said, yes, I can. And she said, well, then you should. So, we put a team together and we've now delivered three quite successful aid missions. But I would think the point I'd like to make is, that we've built a network of people inside Ukraine. So, we've got live communications almost on a daily basis. So, we know exactly what people need and what challenges that they're facing. And we are taking that aid specifically and delivering it directly to the people that need it. So, we met, appreciate we're not going to share their names here, but we shared directly, we drove out to Kyiv, which is where we were last week. And we met with these groups, and we hand over exactly what they need. And fortunately, that's captured the imagination of a number of large corporate businesses that have really helped us out actually. Steve Rush: Right. Timothy Bradshaw: But I think that's because again, it's not faceless. Steve Rush: Yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: Steve, I think that comes back to our theme of kind of leadership and relationships, right? Steve Rush: Does Tim, yeah. And homage to you genuinely. One of the things I know about you Tim, is that you see danger very differently to other people that I've, you know, come into contact with specifically in the business world. You almost see this as an opportunity, it's alluring for you. And I just wondered to, I wanted to unpack a little bit about that with you, because it seems to me that you are almost attracted to that danger and ambiguity that comes with things like running an aid mission to Kiev. Timothy Bradshaw: I think, I'm not I'm necessarily attractive to it, but I certainly see opportunity in it. So, we often at the moment sort of voker is quite a big thing, right? Vulnerable, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous, and we can use all the analogies you want. But for me, there's always then opportunity because if everything is absolutely, you know, tickly, boom and perfect and jogging along then we often joke that's the point that you need effective management rather than necessarily an effective leadership. And I think if you look at sport as an example, you know, if you look at rugby in offense, you're trying to create a break in the back line, right. Or if you see a break in the back line, then there's the gap that you need to get through for your Canadian and American listeners, that's a real sport where you don't wear armor and helmet and stuff. Steve Rush: [Laugh], nothing like a little bit of counter finishing in the mix there. Timothy Bradshaw: [Laugh] But by understand that the theory is probably very much the same, you know, you are looking for that break in the back line, right, to go through the gap. And I think that the same is true. I'm sure it's true in ice hockey. But I think the same is true in business. If everything is the same, then you are unlikely to either improve or get a different result. And for me as an effective leader, really, you should be seeking out the change or the opportunity, but of course that's uncomfortable for people. So, if you can create a toolkit that enables you to initially deal, I guess, with like the biological reaction to change and stress and then see clearly and find the opportunity. So yes, I mean, Steve, I do see it as an opportunity, but that's because if something's changing, then maybe it's a chance to get in front, you know, if anyone watch the Formula 1 that was on at the weekend, the minute it rains, the teams down the back of the grid a little bit, see an opportunity, don't they? Steve Rush: Yeah Timothy Bradshaw: And it's the same theory. Steve Rush: Absolutely, yeah. So, in terms of your experience of diving into Ukraine recently, you talk about resilience in your work a lot. What have you noticed about the resilience of the people in some of those war tone areas you've met recently? Timothy Bradshaw: Oh, I mean, Steve. It's phenomenal. I was trying to describe this to somebody the other day. It's both harrowing and inspirational in the same breath. You know, you're talking to people, some people have lost their whole homes, their families and everything else, but then those same people have a look in their eye, and they are not taking a step backwards. They are refusing to take a backwards step. And that would be enough for me to want to support them regardless of any benefit to the UK or anybody else anyway. Because I just always think that level of courage should be at least supported if not rewarded. But again, you know, when we go into businesses and we talk about clear communication and perhaps more importantly, a unifying purpose, you know, a focus and outcome that we're trying to achieve, then that's the ultimate outcome isn't it, right? When somebody invade your country. Steve Rush: Yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: That defense of your home or your family. I mean, that has to be the kind of ultimate unifying purpose I would think. Steve Rush: And I suspect, and you'll know this more than most. In war tone situations, period, you find a deeper, more meaningful resilience than you'd ever have anticipated in the world of business. I mean, the things that we get stuck up and worried about and stressed about in our world of business, pale insignificance in those situations, don't they? Timothy Bradshaw: Well, there's no way-out Steve, which is what I think's interesting, okay. Steve Rush: Right. Timothy Bradshaw: So, I remember talking to somebody about special operations, special duties, special forces, selection processes, and the theme all over the world different, you know, every country has its own variance, but the theme is always one the same, it's adapted and overcome and adapt and overcome. But actually, if you talk to the selection teams, a lot of them will tell you that the biggest dropout rate is in fact, not on the course, is the day before because people get the jitters the day before they go, because they are anticipating what's coming. And they have an option. So, they don't turn up, they talk themselves out of it or believe it or not, the vast majority of people that go through all these processes, they don't get failed. They what's called VW, they voluntarily withdraw. In other words, they quit because they have an option to quit. Steve Rush: Right. Timothy Bradshaw: And I think when we work with businesses, there is always an option to quit. And I think when we, you know, implement something new, push ahead with a new process or a system or a change, whatever that might be, there's always the option to go back to where we were before or to opt out. And I think when the pressure comes on and when you get nervous that kind of opt out to your comfort zone becomes more alluring, right? Steve Rush: Right, yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: When somebody has invaded your country [laugh] and it's your home, you just don't have that option. So, you have to keep marching forwards almost at all costs. And that's why I think in these situations you see such, all inspiring levels of sort of courage and resilience because the option to sort of take the easier routes gone, is it's been removed. So, people dig really deep and they find whatever it is that's, you know, inside themselves. Steve Rush: I love the whole notion of there is no get out. There's no plan B philosophy. And that forms mindset that we talked a little bit about earlier. So, there's an example where you can't teach that, you have to experience it in order to shift and create the right set of mindsets. But I do wonder if we apply that level thinking, can that impact on our mindset, do you think? Timothy Bradshaw: Yeah, because I think once you've done it once or twice and you've proven to yourself, you can, which is for me where the sort of, title for the book came, Because I Can. Then what happens is, you kind of build confidence and it's almost like any new skill you pick up, you know, whether that's a sport or learning to drive or whatever. You go, oh, I can do that. And then you do it just once and you go, I can. And I always say to people, not enough people debrief the wins, you know, we're very quick to debrief the losses, but the problem is, we still don't know what good looks like. Whereas actually I mean, you know, I've been a ski instructor and stuff like that in the past. It's a passion of mine. And if you're teaching something to ski and they get it right, and you go, wow, that was amazing. Do that again, that was excellent. They can repeat it. And they have the confidence and the courage almost to repeat it, if that makes sense. And I think that's super, super important. And then you can start to instill that mindset in somebody. So, we have this expression that if you can reward the behaviors that you want to see again, that is ultimately how you change a mindset. And I think certainly professional services businesses at the moment, we have this impression that performance is this kind of perfect thing all the time. And somebody does something 95% correct but we jump on the 5% that they got wrong, and you know, we call them out on it. And then we're surprised when that person doesn't come back to us for more feedback. Steve Rush: Yeah, so what was the inspiration for the book, Tim? Timothy Bradshaw: I think it was an idea I had in my head for ages. I'm certainly not academic in any way, shape, or form. For me, it was probably the furthest I've ever been outside of my comfort zone, to be honest. So, I kind of started it and therefore had to finish it. And I just wanted to have a little bit of a user guide for people. You know, you do seminars and you do keynote speaking and you kind of hand out notes and PDFs and it's all bit old hat, isn't it? So, I just sort of let's do something a bit different. So, a lot stuff I talk about is in the book, but in terms of, don't do that, do this type of a way. So, I guess a bit sort of, I don't know, user guide, that was the idea Steve Rush: And the whole notion of because I can, is that self-talk almost to say that anything is possible, right? Timothy Bradshaw: Yeah, absolutely. The whole thing, because I think sometimes you just have to remind myself, I can do this. I can do this. You know, I've been through various selection processes. We've talked about before, down various big mountains and on a number of occasions, I've found myself having to remind myself like, you've got this, you can do this. And I think it's also, it's about finding ways to do something, finding ways to make something happen. You know, we were talking in the past about leadership and taking decisions under pressure. And how does the military impact on that? And I don't think that the military necessarily guarantees somebody becomes a good leader. But it does guarantee that you become a kind of a good decision maker. Steve Rush: Yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: But the one thing that is really interesting when you work with the military is there is never any question that we are going to do anything other than achieve the task, if that makes sense. Steve Rush: Yeah, it does. Timothy Bradshaw: So, the whole theme is focused on achieving the aim. And that's probably the biggest takeout and and that's a theme that runs through the book is, this is what we're going to do. So how do we make it happen? Accepting we're perhaps going to change course a couple of times and you know, it might evolve a little bit, that's okay. But fundamentally, how do we make it happen? Steve Rush: I'm pretty sure it was you in the past Tim, actually, that taught me that in the military, the first thing you get to learn as a leader is, you have to make a decision. Timothy Bradshaw: Yeah, that's right. Steve Rush: Tell me a little bit about that because I think that's a really interesting frame of mind that, you know, when you are still in a relatively young leadership position or indeed you're running a global organization, is that making the decision is key, right? Timothy Bradshaw: So, yeah, I think it wobbles. It's really funny. It's a great analogy, right. We've all done it. Imagine you are driving your car and you approach a big roundabout. And I live quite near the A9, the key roundabout, which is, anybody's ever been here near Scotland will know, because they'll have sat there for 40 minutes trying and get across it. And you approach a roundabout and the person in front of you kind of half goes then stops then goes to go, then stops. Steve Rush: [Laugh], yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: And chaos in ensues, right? Because you kind of go then stop. And then you hit the brakes, believe or not. It's the most common cause of accident, people hitting the back of each other and what's caused all that chaos is indecision. Now, if that person was either waiting for a huge gap, it's frustrating, but you can see what they're going to do, so you work with it. If that person, I swore then, says, I'm going for it anyway, drops a gear and goes for it. Scary as that might be, you can see what they're doing, and you can react to it. It's the indecision in the middle that causes the problem. And certainly, my experience at Sandhurst was, you don't fail Sandhurst to making a wrong decision. If you make a wrong decision, you learn from it, you evolve, but it's the indecision, it's making no decision that will make you fail. Because when you have sort of this sort of wobbly indecisive, that's when the wheels come off, that's when morale drops. That's when the good ideas club get together, that's when people start going off and doing their own thing in opposite directions. And me certainly, one of the biggest things I've learned across everything that I've done is, in high pressure situations, particularly when you're working with educated people is, you can need to provide reassurance and then direction. And that direction is where, you know, the decision-making is, part of giving that direction because you then get forward momentum. And to me, if you can gain forward momentum, then actually, everyone starts to move in that same direction together. And sometimes it'll be quicker than others, but essentially it does work. Steve Rush: Yeah, now you'd have been faced with a bunch of challenges throughout your careers. And I say careers because they've kind of, whilst it is still one career, there's been number of different facets to what you do. What's been your secret source to overcoming those challenges and turning it into a positive outcome? Timothy Bradshaw: I think sometimes firstly, understanding it kind of all things must pass, you know, at various situations throughout my life, I've, made mistakes, I've been impetuous, I've done stuff. And I think, oh, why did I do that? And you think the world's kind of ending around you, but as you get older, you kind of realize that actually, okay, it's mistake. It's going to be okay. And these things have a tendency to write themselves somehow and you come out the other side of it. So, I think, you know, accepting that you're going to make mistakes and get it wrong, take whatever lessons you can out of it. It is super important. I think at the moment, particularly we're quite vulnerable to people having huge opinions about things that they know very little about. And I think that's largely down to the ability for kind of social media, for people to kind of take a swing at you, if you like, actually without, you know, people you've never even met [laugh] essentially, and I think that can be quite damaging. So, I think accept the fact that you're going to make mistakes, focus on the bits you can control which is, which is your own performance and the way you react to staff and take feedback from the people you trust. But don't worry too much about the kind of naysayers or the people almost. I think we sometimes come across people, and I think it's a bit of a UK disease at the moment where we almost want people to fail and I think I find that a bit strange, but you see it quite a lot. Steve Rush: You do, yeah. Where do you think that comes from? Timothy Bradshaw: I don't know really. I honestly, for me, it's a bit of a complete anathema that is really, I don't really understand it, but whether that's a kind of jealousy thing or whether that's just, I think it's very easy. I can't recite the whole poem off the top of my head, but it's Roosevelt's poem, isn't it? Where he says, it's the man in the fight. You know, don't chastise those that try and fail. And I think sometimes people just, when we're outside of comfort zone or perhaps people are attempting something that somebody else hasn't wanted to try, they almost don't want them to succeed. I personally find that a bit strange, but yeah. Try to override it and get past it. Steve Rush: Yeah, I think business is becoming more receptive to failure in the old world of what failure might have been and most businesses that I certainly work with and know of, recognize that it's part of success, making those steps and pivoting to something else. Timothy Bradshaw: Yeah, no, Steve, I actually agree with you and actually if you want to push the boundaries, if you want to learn a new trick, so to speak, you're going to get it wrong a couple of times first, right. But if you want to adapt to overcome, and if you want to grow process, then by definition, you've got to develop and change. And if you're going to develop and change, you're going to do stuff differently. And sometimes that's not going to go quite to plan, I think, sort of accepting that and then also creating a structure within a business so that when that happens, we are supportive of each other. Yeah, we have this expression, covering each other's blind spots. Steve Rush: Yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: You know, so actually we are supporting each other rather than kind of going, oh my goodness me, look at that. Steve made a right mess of that. You know, we should be thinking to ourselves, actually it was brilliant that Steve had to go at that and actually that bit were quite successful. So, if we take those two bits out, support Steve, make sure he's okay. And then let's build on those two elements that work really well. To me, that's much healthier. Steve Rush: Super, now you mentioned a little earlier on you'd suffered with depression and anxiety in the past. Are you comfortable? Let's go there Tim. Timothy Bradshaw: Yeah, I don't mind at all Steve. I think it's important that we do talk about it. Steve Rush: Thank you. So, I know that this is a driving force for you now and you use it as a force of good to push you into other activities. But I wondered if you might just share with our listers a little bit about the journey you've been on and what some of your coping strategies are? Timothy Bradshaw: Yeah, I mean, for me, it's interesting, right. So, my brain works at speed, as you already know, rightly or wrongly, and I have an ability to latch onto something to focus on that, to not necessarily see some of the boundaries that perhaps other people see and to therefore drive towards achieving that. And that enables me to think very laterally, to get to a location that we need to get to. But that same way my head works if you like comes with a price and the price is that occasionally I then latch the things that I don't need to latch to, or I overthink people's reactions or I overthink the way people come back to me, which then causes me to go into a, we call it, like a negative spiral, sort of catastrophic thinking spiral which is not uncommon with other people. And I face people. I don't suffer from it. I live with it. I don't particularly want curing if that is a thing. Because I am me and the bits of that that make it very challenging. And my wife's amazing at helping me also made me really good at other stuff. So, to me, you kind of can't have one without the other. Steve Rush: Yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: But what I've tried to do, in 2018, we did a year of challenges, which was another terrible idea. And we essentially did an endurance challenge a month, every month for a year. We did like a half iron man triathlon. We climbed the Matterhorn amongst other things. I cycled L'Étape du Tour, which is a terrible idea for any people, in your audience that are mammals, middle-aged men in Lyra and who have push bikes worth more than their cars that they perhaps haven't told their other halves about. You know, it's the ultimate challenge. You get to cycle the mountain stages like Tour de France. And I was definitely not ready for it and not prepared for it. And it put me to a really dark place. But one of the reasons that we did all these challenges was almost a bit of an experiment on me for me to try and work out, you know, how'd you get through these things and how'd, you cope with it and kind of consciously deal with it. And I think for me, it's about momentum. So, the first thing, we have this expression, it's in the book actually, called fear, false expectation appearing real, and any bits ever suffered with a bit pressure anxiety, one often leads to the other will find the clouds kind of roll in and you start to think, oh, this is going to happen and that's going to happen. And Steve's thinking this off me, and if Steve's thinking that of me, then this is going to happen and now that's going to happen. But the reality of that is, although that feels quite real to me at the time, the reality is actually not real. It's a perception of what's going on around you. So, what you have to do or what works for me, I've never tell any what they have to do. What's worked for me is, focus on what's real. So almost list the facts. And our company strap line is intelligence, not information. So, list out the facts. This is what's real. This is what I know. And what you'll find is, I find is, that starts to then sort of push the clouds back because now I'm dealing with the reality of a situation, not my perception of a situation. And once that started to happen, you start to gain a little bit of traction. And then I have this other expression, which is, remember for your big goal. You know, why did I get out of bed this morning, essentially. Ignore the dangerous middle ground and get there by taking small steps. So, in other words, using the tour as an example, two mountains in terms of two of the four we had to cycle up. I was, you know, flat out, done, finished, couldn't do it. But I reminded myself, I was doing it for mental health charities. So therefore, I wasn't going to let them down. That was my big picture. Steve Rush: Yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: On mountain two, if I tried to think about mountain three or mountain four, I would've talked myself out of it, if that makes sense. So actually, what I did was then focus on the next aid station, the next peak, the immediate target in front of me, and we call it micro goal setting. And at one point I could have told you how many lampposts [laugh] were up the final street to the final climb because I was literally going one lamppost at a time. Steve Rush: Yeah. Timothy Bradshaw: But it's quite a good analogy. So, when that starts to happen, you set yourself a micro goal. So, it's like, okay, can I get this done? Yes, I can. Can I get to the next one of these? Yes, I can. And then gradually that builds momentum. And it sort of starts to take you forward. And I hope that, you know, I hope anybody listening, if that helps just one person, it's not easy. But for me, that's made quite a big difference. And the more times I do it, I now go into a little bit of a routine, and I can find myself start to deal with that Steve Rush: Amazing insights. Love it. Thank you for sharing that, Tim. I really appreciate it. So, this is where we get to turn the tables a little bit now. So, you've been a army officer, you've led businesses. You now run a really successful consultancy business. So, I want to tap into that leadership mind of yours. So, I'm going to first off, start by asking you to choose and pick amongst all of the lessons that you've collected on your journey and narrow those down to your top three. What would be your top three leadership hacks? Timothy Bradshaw: Have a toolkit, not a process. Everyone loves a process, right. Everyone, except me. Processes are designed to make sure you get the wing mirror on the car, in the right place at the right time on a production line. They don't work with people. And I'll argue that with everybody all day, so build a toolkit of skills and experiences and in the same way that if you had a problem at home, you'd go to the toolkit and go select the right tool for the right job, rather than blindly following a process, think to yourself, which tool is going to work, you know, for the job that I'm trying to. So, my first one would be, have a toolkit, not a process. Steve Rush: Nice. Timothy Bradshaw: The second one as a leader will be, pull not push. Somebody once said to me, always try and be a warrior, not a mercenary [laugh] so, and by that, what I mean is, empathy is an interesting concept, but try and put yourself in the shoes of the people that you are trying to lead and ask yourself, what is it they want out of life? What is it they want to achieve? And you know, the motto Sandhurst is, served to lead. So, in other words, the leader serves the team, not the other way around. And I think at the moment we have a tendency to go, well, I've made it, I'm the partner, I'm the CEO and whatever. The millions will now run around after me and doing my bidding. Whereas actually, if you can create a pool so that you have a company full of warriors, rather than mercenaries, that are working for a check, then to me, you will achieve far more. And certainly, when crazy stuff happens, like the pandemic or whatever else, that team of warriors are much more likely to rally round and find a way out, rather than sort of simply take the paycheck out, if that makes sense. Steve Rush: Love it. Timothy Bradshaw: And then I think my final one would be of the three would just be simply sort of, don't stop and keep reevaluating all of the time, keep reevaluating the situation. I'm a massive believer in John Boyd. The new Top Gun film is out, right. So, I'm about say it's brilliant. I was very skeptical, but no, it was brilliant. Steve Rush: Yeah, I'm with you. Timothy Bradshaw: But a lot of people don't realize is that the actual place, fightertown in Miramar came about because a guy called John Boyd who's a Colonel in the American Air Force came up with OODA loop thinking which is, observe, orientate, decide and act, and it goes round in a loop. So, in other words, what happens is, you gather intelligence, you interpret that intelligence, you take a decision, you carry out that action, like your life depends upon it. But then what you do is, you instantly start to observe the reaction if you like that you've carried out and is it working and adjust accordingly? And what that does is it means, rather than having this kind of linear decision-making process where the outcome is, be all an end all. In fact, any decision is simply part of this kind of ever rotating process, where you're constantly adjusting the course. And the best analogy I can think of is sailing. You know, you don't kind of set the course sail for 10 days and hope for the best, then check the compass again. You know, you're constantly checking the compass and constantly adjusting the course. And for me that would be it. Steve Rush: Great lesson. Timothy Bradshaw: So, that you're always adjusting. Steve Rush: Yeah, I love that. I love that last one as well, because the world isn't as linear as people think it is, people are not as linear. Processes and organizations are changing intraday. And having that ability to be fleet of foot is, is really powerful, isn't it? Timothy Bradshaw: Yeah, totally agree Steve, absolutely. And we're proving that more and more, you know, we kind think coronavirus, and thought, that's done. And then the Ukrainian thing happened and there will be another one, you know, when this is sorted, there will be another one. Steve Rush: Yeah, exactly. So next part of the show, Tim, we call it Hack to Attack. So, this is typically where something hasn't worked out as you'd intended, it might be something that's gone quite wrong, but you've actually taken that as an experience. And it's now positive in your life and work. What would be your Hack to Attack? Timothy Bradshaw: I think you've got to; you've got to seek out the positive outcomes from anything you can find to take the lessons out of it. And I think, you know, using an analogy and I guess this is not everybody can use it, but we can use the lessons that come out of. It was, we spent two years trying to pull off the Everest expedition and we got it all sorted. And we got to the mountain, and we thought, wow, this is it. We're going to do it. You know, we all joke sort, you know, book, deal and TV show. And then, when all the earthquakes happened and everything else happened around you, I think the first thing that happened is you kind of feel quite sorry for yourself. And you think that this is outrageous. I put all this time and money and effort, and now this has all gone wrong. And then you suddenly realize that the people around you have lost their homes and their families. So, whilst you can't help the way you feel, it puts it into context, and I think you have to accept that. And at the time, I kind of walked away feeling like a little bit like of a failure really. Even though they were situations so far out of my control, you know, it's not even fathomable to think you could have controlled that situation. But actually, now we use that experience to help school kids. So, we've spoken to over seven and a half thousand school kids about what it's like when it doesn't quite go to plan about how you adapt and overcome and about how you refocus and how you keep working the problem regardless of what's going on around you. So, in fact, that very negative situation, what was that 2015? So, the best part of 10 years later. Now is providing a very positive input and outcome to schools as to how to overcome the challenge that they faced over the last couple of years. So, I think, like I said, to take out the positive lessons, you know, wherever you can. Steve Rush: Yeah, definitely. And that was an extreme example of where learning happens, but sometimes the evaluation of the learning is sometimes afterwards, right? Timothy Bradshaw: Mm Steve Rush: Mm. Timothy Bradshaw: Absolutely, yeah. Steve Rush: So last part of the show, Tim, we get to do some time travel with you. You can bump into Tim at 21, probably just finishing or midway through Sandhurst. I suspect at the time, what would your advice to him be? Timothy Bradshaw: I think [laugh] when we take decision making or when I teach critical decision making now, which I do a lot of with big corporate. The first thing we tell people is take a tactical pause, which is just take a deep breath for a minute. You know, when you in an airplane, there's a reason why they tell you to put your own oxygen mask on first. And I think it would be, take your time, you know, just pause for a minute and respect the experience of those people around you. And kind of let it happen a little bit, let it come to you rather than necessarily instantly try and force every situation. So just take a minute, take in what's happening to you and have faith that whatever is, you know, is going to come to you at some point, don't necessarily sort of instantly try and force it Steve Rush: Very wise words. Indeed. So, then Tim, what's next for you? Timothy Bradshaw: So, we are busy at the moment with keynote speaking and we are currently talking to companies about kind of mindset development programs. I think we are really passionate at the minute. I think there's a huge opportunity at the minute for businesses to really reevaluate how they lead, how they make decisions, how they motivate their workforces and make a change. And I think probably now more than ever, there's a window for people to seize that opportunity and go, we're going to take lessons out of this. The workforce is up for it, we're up for it. And let's see if we can make a difference. So, we're quite keen to kind of be a part of that wave. And then the next mission, we're planning our next trip to Ukraine. The boys and girls that we were talking to the other week have got a massive problem. They haven't got enough vehicles to bring casualties back from the front line to the hospitals. So, we are talking to a few people at the moment, we've set up a charity called the Sandstone Foundation, and we are working to try see if we can't get some four by old fours out to these guys to help them and bring back casualties. So that's the next project, I guess. Steve Rush: Awesome, brilliant news. And for those folks that listen to this, Tim, I'm pretty certain, they're going to want to know how they can get a copy of, Because I Can. Find out a little bit more about the work you do with Sandstone Communications. Where's the best place for us to send them? Timothy Bradshaw: Two things, really. The book is on Amazon. Just simply search either for me or for Because I Can or Waterstones, I think have it as well. And the best way to find out or get in touch is via LinkedIn. So, Timothy Bradshaw on LinkedIn and I would love to hear from anybody. I love learning. I love talking to people. And particularly as I said, if you've got a lot of listeners across, you know, further up field, America and Canada and all over. I'm always fascinated to hear how, what we think resonates elsewhere. So please, yeah. Drop me a line on LinkedIn and then I'll always do my best to respond. Steve Rush: We'll make sure those links are in our show notes as well, Tim, but I'm just delighted that we've managed to get you on our show. You're an incredibly inspirational guy. You've got such a lot of experience that we can learn from in lots of different parts of our lives and work. So, Tim, thanks for being part of our community on The Leadership Hacker Podcast.
