Cozy: We seek it and we crave it. If we're honest with ourselves we feel that a certain level of cozy is only achievable by a select few. We can all think of a home we've been in, or one we've dreamed over through our social screen, that feels nothing shy of inviting. Each detail intentionally placed, each color complimenting the next, all woven together in a way that says, “You're welcome here.” If I've learned one thing about design, it's that one's home design often makes or breaks the confidence they hold as they welcome others in. Liz Marie Galvan is known and loved through her intentional, warm and inviting design. With her cozy cottage farmhouse style, she has inspired hosts to use design and identify their own style to make their homes cozy. Through this conversation we will walk through: The journey that led to the success of the Liz Marie Galvan Blog The role her grandmother had in shaping her love of design from a young ageWhat being a military wife taught her about community and hospitality How to define cozy and how to can vary from host to hostHow to prepare your outdoor spaces for summer hospitality Antiquing: how to approach it and her favorite finds this season How sticking with a budget, and using what you haves gives you more confidence in your design Whether you are a design enthusiast, or someone in need of a pep talk this episode has you in mind! Do you want to listen to the Ted Talk that Liz & I gushed about? Watch it here! Be sure to get your copy of Liz's newest book, as a guide to create cozy all year round!
Teamwork may indeed make the dream work, but teams that lack a teamwork culture can be a nightmare. Pick your sport, and you can find a professional team that focused on acquiring talented players but failed to get the results their bulging salary budget should have brought. And the reason teams of star players fail more often than they should most often comes down to culture. Or at least, that those star players don't want to be part of a team-oriented culture. Instead, they want to shine on their own. The same is true of many organizations. Research suggests that just trying to capture talent while ignoring teamwork culture often leads to star performers failing to perform up to expectations. Culture makes the difference. In this episode, we'll review how to create a teamwork culture so that your team can ignore this fate. 0:00 Introduction 1:17 Hold Huddles 3:02 Find Uncommon Commonalities 5:01 Get Vulnerable 6:21 Create Civility 7:41 Reinforce Purpose 8:53 Conclusion This list might seem overwhelming at first. But the best teams do something similar to all of these. That doesn't mean they have to do it all at once, but leaders should get started working toward all of them, Fortunately, as these habits are built, the team starts to take over responsibility for continuing the trend, which means leaders can focus on the next one and the next one. Overtime, these habits form the culture of the team—a culture steeped in teamwork and a culture where everyone can do their best work ever. //DO YOUR BEST WORK EVER If you liked this video and you want to help your team do their best work ever, check out the free resources we've compiled at https://davidburkus.com/resources //LIKE THE SHIRT?

Links: Karen's Ted Talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQEWEPIHLzQ My Roadmap to Learning Mandarin Tones: http://imlearningmandarin.com/2022/02/12/its-never-too-late-to-learn-chinese-tones-heres-how/ On today's podcast, I chat with a very distinguished guest. Someone who has designed a technique she believes can help learners of any language achieve near native accents. Karen Chung from the USA has lived in Taiwan for more than 30 years and for most of that time has worked as a linguistics professor at the National Taiwan University. In 2018 a Ted Talk which she delivered in flawless Mandarin received over a million views and brought her methods to the attention of a large international audience. In the video she explains her accent training technique which she calls the echo method. The method which is based on her own learning experiences takes advantage of our echoic memory. First we listen to a sentence or phrase in our target language, waiting for the audio to replay or echo in our minds, before finally mimicking it out loud. Doing it this way allows us to mimic native speech much more closely than conventional listen and repeat methods. In this podcast, we explore her own language learning journey, how she learned Mandarin to such a high level and why she disagrees with conventional language learning opinion which argues accents don't matter as long as we can more or less make ourselves understood. She also kindly agreed to give me a brief demonstration of her method to help improve my own Mandarin accent.

BJ Miller is an American physician, author and speaker. He has worked in hospice and palliative medicine physician and is known for his 2015 TED Talk, "What Really Matters at the End of Life". BJ speaks so calmly, intellectually and deeply about life and his experience on this episode of DEAD Talks. He reflects on his time in the hospital after he nearly died at the age of 19 and the meaning he pulls from it all. His interest in the way that we die and how he established his focus of reform in that aspect. This was a wonderful conversation that I felt honored to have with this man.

Each new guest shares their experience with grieving or perspective on death in a way that shatters the “don't talk about death” taboo. Grief doesn't end, it evolves. Having lost his father on September 11th when he was 12 he learned the importance of discussion and sharing other people's stories. Grief, loss, death, mourning, trauma or whatever it may be, DEAD Talks Podcast hopes to make it a little easier to talk about. You may cry; but, you also may laugh.
For those long-time listeners, you know that I love learning and talking about Leadership, and I love bringing guests on the podcast who can share their leadership knowledge and expertise with you, which is why I couldn't wait to share this interview with you! My guest today is Drew Dudley, a Wall Street Journal best-selling author, educator, and speaker. A mentor of mine introduced me Drew's TEDx Talk “Leading with Lollipops” a few years ago, and since then I have shared Drew's Talk with dozens of people. If you haven't watched it yet, I encourage you to do it now. We have a link to Drew's TEDx Talk below. Drew Dudley is someone who has a refreshing perspective on leadership and he is an excellent storyteller. The first time I met him, I couldn't stop smiling, and hopefully by the end of this episode you'll feel empowered to be an extraordinarily intentional leader. Bottom line: Drew Dudley is going to inspire you to become a new kind of leader. Your roadside friend, as you travel from client to client. -Trace Timestamps: Thanking the best audience in Water Treatment, the Scaling UP!

How long will a drum of sodium hypochlorite last? What factors can impact its shelf life? Do heat and light have an impact? Will contact with certain metals have an impact? What is chemically happening to the sodium hypochlorite to reduce its shelf life? What are the possible consequences of feeding it after it is beyond its shelf life? How does understanding the shelf life of sodium hypochlorite impact the volume ordered when usage rate is considered? Take this week to think about the shelf life of industrial-strength sodium hypochlorite and what it may mean to you. Quotes: “When leadership is all about power, influence, and prestige it doesn't connect with young people.” - Drew Dudley “One of the challenges isn't whether we have enough schools teaching Leadership, it's how they're teaching Leadership, especifically, what examples they are using.” - Drew Dudley “The key to any talk, TED or otherwise, is ‘what's the story'?” - Drew Dudley “The Lollipop Moment is about a moment in life where somebody let you know that you had a bigger impact than you are aware.” - Drew Dudley “Useful compelling ideas are inherently motivating.” - Drew Dudley “Every great story begins with an act of stupidity” - Drew Dudley “It's not the goals you've set, it's not the goals you reached; and it's how you behaved in pursuit of these goals.” - Drew Dudley “Moments of personal impact are the only source of power that are accessible to everyone on earth.” - Drew Dudley “Leadership is not about random acts, it's about conscious acts.” - Drew Dudley “Never allow someone who you know is a person of worth to diminish themselves in front of you.” - Drew Dudley “If you present how you feel about something, it can't be argued with.” - Drew Dudley “Research shows that the more people in an organization that understand their own personal values and can live them everyday, the better the organization is going to be.” - Drew Dudley “In Leadership, you never steal anything, you benchmark a good practice.” - Drew Dudley “Please tell your story, share it with people.

When was the last time you heard or saw an ice cream truck? In this Thought Bubble, Ellie describes a fun encounter with an ice cream truck that brought back memories of her five-year-old self living in the suburbs of California. Throwback to the time when we had fun at playgrounds swinging on monkey bars and swings, playing hopscotch, jumping rope, and fooling around in the sandbox. Looking back, it seemed so natural for us to work/play together with people we just met and to make friends. I was in an entrepreneurship bootcamp last semester, and we did a little team-building exercise called the spaghetti tower challenge (aka the marshmallow challenge) where teams of five compete against other teams to build the tallest structure using sticks of spaghetti, string, tape, and one marshmallow that's supposed to be at the top of the tower as a marker for measuring. This challenge is timed for 18 minutes, and the team with the tallest tower (aka whose tower has the highest marshmallow) wins. The result: my team had the tallest tower. Yay!!! During the debrief of that exercise, the bootcamp alluded to Tom Wujec's TED Talk “Build a tower, build a team”, in which he points out that the people who do the best at this challenge are kindergartners - building towers much much taller than those of MBA and post grad students (who often performed the worst). Isn't it ironic that MBA students who are taught collaboration and leadership skills in business school do the worst? Well that's because these MBA students follow what they're taught in school too rigidly (such as having a set project timeline where they spend way too much time deciding who the official team “leader” is and “allocating” tasks to everyone instead of actually building the tower). Meanwhile these kindergartners are out here building away and work together and communicate very naturally. They don't try to grapple for power and try to be the official “team leader”. It's all a very creative and naturally collaborative process, without the constraints of a “textbook” system. The reason I mention this marshmallow challenge is to highlight the benefits of feeling like a kid again and how that feeling can open up so much creativity and collaboration, which is probably why companies like Google create spaces that try to emulate that sense of playfulness to inspire creativity and open-mindedness. It's beneficial to do things to feel like a kid again that help you find your own ‘sandbox', whether it's eating ice cream, drawing, playing with plushies, etc. I really hope to see more spaces or playgrounds for adults to relax, have fun, and to relive their childhood. For most of us, it's great stress relief! Also… does that mean that my team has the brain of a bunch of kindergartners if we did so well during the marshmallow challenge? Haha just kidding lol ;) Until next time, Ellie Tom Wujec's TED Talk: https://www.ted.com/talks/tom_wujec_build_a_tower_build_a_team --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/basically-gen-z/support

From paralyzed acrobat to successful speaker, coach, and podcast host, Amber's guest today, Danny-J, knows the significance of a do-over when life gives you a crap deal. Mama, we are getting vulnerable in today's episode and talking about the power (and the need) for a do-over in our lives. As coaches, Danny-J and Amber both know the power of a client figuring out what is truly bothering them, getting past it, and growing from it can do to that client's overall wellbeing and personal growth. That is something that, as individuals, we can control. But what happens when life decides to take a *insert poop emoji* on us? What happens when it is out of our control? Loss of a job. Loss of a loved one. Loss of a marriage. Is this hitting home, Mama? In today's interview, Danny-J comes to the rescue by describing how to get a do-over. A do-over is different from starting over, it is a mindset shift with a positive outlook. A do-over is something we get to do– we get to try again with a different outcome in mind. It is us saying, “New ‘do, new me,” after we get our hair colored. But how do we get this oh-so-magical, do-over life makeover? By realizing that this setback (whatever it may be) is a GIFT. We have to grieve. We are allowed to be sad. Any kind of loss in life is worthy of acknowledgment. As we grieve, we should look for Insights– are there any lessons to be learned out of this? Then, we should Forgive. Listen, Mama, Danny-J and Amber both stress that Forgiveness is NOT for the other person, it is for you. You are not letting that person have power over you any longer. Finally, we need to Trust. Trust is something that we should have in ourselves, and ultimately, trust overall that everything is as it should be or will be. These moments in life are setbacks and using this framework we can turn those setbacks into fuel that ignites our do-over. You in, Mama? Tune in for more! Wellness Quote “Forgiveness is not about letting someone else off the hook, it's really releasing their tie on you and it's really for you.” –Danny-J Key Highlights Meet Danny-J, a college graduate turned acrobat that became paralyzed and had a long healing journey, but within a year was able to walk again. Danny-J is now a successful coach, speaker and the co-host of the Best Life Podcast; If we notice something is blocking our way to success, the block may be emotional or mental rather than physical, it is necessary for us to figure this out on our own rather than someone tell us; After she found out her husband was having an affair, Do-over Danny came to life and brought to light what a properly executed do-over can do for our overall well-being and personal growth Setbacks are a secret gift to a do-over. This is mentioned in Danny-J's TED Talk as she also mentions her framework to carry out a successful do-over, GIFT; Forgiveness is something that is ongoing. It is not a “one and done” event. Even though forgiveness is for us and not the other person, it may be something that turns into a daily practice. If you don't think you are capable of actually forgiving someone try the baby step of “I am willing to be able to forgive,”; Another possibility for mental or emotional healing could be ayahuasca or other plant ceremonies, Amber and Danny talk about this in detail, and Danny-J also has a full podcast episode on the Best Life Podcast over this topic if you are interested.

89. Amber Hikes - Weaponize Your Privilege “If allyship is about solidarity, accompliceship is about leveraging your privilege, like kind of weaponizing your own power… I'm not just here to cheer you on. I'm here to fight with you like it's my own fight and accomplices believe in their bones that their comfort is less important than someone else's liberation.” Guest Info: Amber Hikes (they/she) is a social justice advocate, community organizer, TED Talk Speaker, and unapologetically queer and Black. As the ACLU's first Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer, they provide vision, leadership, and direction for the ACLU's nationwide strategy to support equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) across all aspects of the organization's work and efforts. Amber serves as both the internal and external ambassador on the importance of EDI as a crucial cornerstone of the ACLU's culture of belonging. In 2017, Amber introduced the world to the More Color, More Pride flag, launching a global conversation around anti-racisim in the LGBTQ community. On the heels of this monumental work, Amber released a TED Talk helping all of us be better mentors, sponsors, and believers in collective liberation. With 2 million views, Amber's TED Talk has built a network of intersectional accomplices changing the landscape of equity, inclusion, and belonging in the workplace. Prior to joining the ACLU, Amber served as the Executive Director of the Philadelphia Mayor's Office of LGBTQ Affairs where they developed policy and served as the principal advisor to the Mayor on issues that affect the LGBTQ community. At the Mayor's Office, Hikes set their sights on fighting and advocating for the most impacted populations within the LGBTQ community – specifically youth, elders, immigrants, transgender people, and people of color. In their time leading the office, Amber advocated for anti-discrimination legislation at the municipal level, passed one of the nation's most trans-inclusive police policies and added black and brown stripes to the rainbow flag, prompting an international conversation about race and discrimination within the LGBTQ community. A community organizer from an early age, Amber's full-time career began in education access advocacy—as the youngest Upward Bound director in the country, at the University of Pennsylvania. The moral compass of Amber's work, intersectional inclusion, can be traced throughout her organizing and her work supporting and facilitating the pursuit of postsecondary education for youth of color experiencing poverty and homelessness. Hikes has been recognized nationally by OUT Magazine as “Community Organizer of the Year” in the 2018 OUT 100 and by Business Equality Pride as one of the 40 LGBTQ Leaders Under 40. Hikes earned a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania and Psychology and English degrees from the University of Delaware. Amber believes in employing an intersectional lens in all aspects of community work and leans daily on the words of sister Audre Lorde: “There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle, because we do not live single-issue lives.” Favorite Quote: “There is no thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.” — Audre Lorde R.O.G.

“Dreams are one of the great mysteries of science. In their bizarre complexity, they can reveal deeper truths about who you are at the most basic level.” Researcher at Harvard University and the World's leading expert on sleep paralysis, Dr. Baland Jalal Watch this interview on YouTube here https://youtu.be/nE15JIqy5rU On the episode you will learn: ✔ Who is Dr. Baland Jalal, and how did he find his way to study neuroscience and sleep, becoming the world's leading expert on sleep paralysis? ✔ How is Dr. Baland connected to Francis Crick, who discovered the double helix of the DNA structure and Dr. V.S. Ramachandran? ✔ What is sleep paralysis and what happens to the brain while this is occurring? ✔Why is the time just before we go to sleep and the time just before we wake up important for increasing our creativity or gaining insight? ✔ Are premonitions real, and can we access important information from our dreams? ✔Can we actually travel to places we have never been? ✔ What is lucid dreaming and how can we gain insight from what we see in these dreams? ✔Can lucid dreaming be beneficial for our waking hours? ✔What advancements in neuroscience do you think could help us in the future with our dreams? For returning guests, welcome back, and for those who are new here, I'm Andrea Samadi, author, and educator, with a passion for learning, understanding difficult concepts, and breaking them down so that we can all use and apply the most current research to improve our productivity and results in our schools, sports environments, and modern workplaces. On today's EPISODE #224 (that was postponed from April due to our guest's busy travel and work schedule) we are going to go beyond where we've ever gone before on this podcast, and cover some topics that you might have questions about, like I did, and I've found Dr. Baland Jalal[i], from Harvard, the world's leading expert on sleep paralysis, who has published 48 peer reviewed academic papers as well as a book from Cambridge University Press, to answer our questions. We've covered dreams before, on EPISODE #104[ii], with Sleep Scientist Antonio Zadra and his book When Your Brain Dreams: Exploring the Science and Mystery of Sleep but I left out some parts of the dream world that I thought might be too weird for this podcast, until I heard Dr. Jalal connecting the brain to our dreams, and this changed everything for me. I mentioned on EPISODE #211, that when I first was introduced to Dr. Jalal, his team sent me an email with his Harvard Bio and a write-up about his work on dreams but little did I know that his work would open my mind to places it's never been before, as I began to explore sleep paralysis (something I've experienced—just once which was enough for me, I just had no idea there was a name for it), lucid dreams (that I flat out thought I was crazy for having), and learning how my brain operates while dreaming, which revealed more truths about who I am at the core than I knew before coming across Dr. Jalal's work. I've gone on to study English scientist and professor of neuroscience, Mathew Walker and often tune into his podcast that's all about sleep, the brain and the body[iii] to see how we can all learn more about ways to improve our sleep, which we all know to be one of our top 5 health staples. I did create this podcast to bring credibility to some of the concepts that used to be considered weird, but now, science and FMRI scans show why these practices that 20 years ago were not mainstream, are now commonly used in our schools and work environments. Before watching Dr. Jalal's lectures, I don't think I would openly talk about the experiences I've had with the dream world, but I thought if I've experienced these things, what if our listeners have also, wherever you are listening to this podcast in the world, and perhaps hearing from Dr. Jalal WHAT these bizarre things called dreams actually are, WHY we have them, and see if they can expand our self-awareness, and open up our world to a new level and even be used in a way to improve our productivity, creativity and results in our waking life. My mentor Bob Proctor was always challenging me to stop looking at life through the key hole, and instead, open up the door and expand my level of awareness. He would say, “Once the mind has been expanded, it will never go back to its original state. Awareness is not something you lose.” (Bob Proctor) When Dr. Jalal and I were working on rescheduling our interview, he asked me how early on a Sunday I would wake up, since he is currently in Europe, and my response to him was that I would wake up at midnight to speak with him about this topic because it's fascinating and I know will help all of us to expand our thinking. Let's meet Dr. Baland Jalal, and see if he can shed some light with what neuroscience can tell us about our dream world. Welcome Dr. Jalal, thank you for coming on the podcast, and helping all of us to expand our thinking about what happens in our dream world—especially knowing that this time takes up 1/3 of our life and that our sleep is such an important health staple. Thanks for being here today…I know you have been busy recording your second TED TALK and that you are in Europe now? I'm hoping you can shed some light for ways we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves through our dreams, and what neuroscience can tell us about our sleeping brain. Intro Q: I've watched all of your most recent podcasts, and had no idea how much I would learn from them. I really enjoyed your interview on The Ranveer Show[iv] as Ranveer seemed like such an open-minded person. You mention your beginnings on this podcast that I think are important to begin with since there's a lot more to you than we see without listening to your story, so I've got to ask, can you take us back to your humble beginnings, and then how you met your mentor (Dr. V.S. Ramachandran)?[v] Q1: Until I heard your lectures, I probably wouldn't ever admit to the fact that I had felt sleep paralysis. It's such a weird and scary experience, and you explained it EXACTLY as I felt it over 20 years ago. For those listening, can you explain what sleep paralysis is, why we become paralyzed during REM sleep, and what's happening in our brain to make this happen? Q1B: Why does it feel so scary? I had an experience that if I had not heard you say this, I probably wouldn't be mentioning it at all—but I thought there was a ghost laying on my chest. I could see him (in my head) and he definitely “felt” evil. Did my brain play a trick on me with what I was seeing and feeling or was there really a ghost in this sleep paralysis experience? Q1C) How did you become known as the world's leading expert on sleep paralysis and then I saw the topic of your most recent TED talk you how are you have designed one of the first treatments for sleep paralysis to help people who experience this terrifying phenomenon regularly? Q2: I think it's crazy that most of us have had these experiences, but we would just leave them off the table of our regular conversations with people, since they are just so weird. I actually remember asking a sleep expert years ago why I could “see things” in my head in those moments that I was drifting off to sleep. He wrote down the term “hypnagogia[vi]” and told me to study that. I can sometimes see people's faces and sometimes what I see foreshadows important events many years later. What can you tell us about the importance of this time before sleep and wake, and how insights can be drawn from what we see so we can trust what we see to be useful? 2B: Sometimes during this time, we can have the sensation of floating above our body. I know you've talked about this often, and explain what's happening in the brain for this to occur. Can you explain the part of our brain that's responsible for our self-awareness, (Temporal Parietal Lobe) and how we could possibly see another version of ourselves floating above our self? (Sup Parietal Lobe) Q3: Premonitions? Is there any TRUTH to what we are dreaming? Are there messages from our waking hours in our sleeping world? I think there are (after seeing common themes in my dreams from my waking hours) but what do you think? After your research and connecting science to dreaming, why do we have dreams? Are we supposed to learn from them? What part of our brain can help us to interpret our dreams? Q4: What about lucid dreaming. At the time I first wrote these questions (in April) I didn't know there was a name for this. There are times just before I wake up, or times just before I go to sleep, that I can see things. My eyes are closed, (but I can feel them opening and moving around in my head as I'm trying to see this vision in my head) that I think are lucid dreams. Some of these visions have helped me in life with massive life-changing decisions and others I have no idea what I'm supposed to be learning from them. One example I can give you that I have no idea what the purpose of the vision is—there's a hallway, and I can see people walking down the hallway. I know where this hallway is, and who the people are from what they are wearing. I've never been there before, but there's certain things in the hallway, in addition to the people, that tell me where it is. The last time I saw this hallway, I was able to (for the first time) zoom in on certain parts of the hall, and see photos on the wall, or the light at the end of the hallway, where the people were walking. I know this hallway is a real place, because I saw a news clip of it, and had this immediate feeling of recognition like “that's the hallway” but the camera in the news clip was shooting from a different angle than what I saw in my dream and I kept thinking…turn around, so I could see the hallway as I saw it in my head. What's happening here? How can see “see” places in our mind where we have never been before? I don't need to ask if it's real because I'm certain it is from what I have seen, but what's the purpose of have a lucid dream? 5: When we are “lucid dreaming” I recently learned from Mathew Walker's research that in this state, our PFC that usually shuts down usually in dreaming, lights up and this explains why we can actually interact with people in our lucid dreams, or gain control of our dream. I've always just been an observer (like my hallway example I'm standing behind the people) but recently saw that I could zoom in and out of the hallway and see the pictures on the wall--wouldn't it be neat if we could interact with the people we see, or even bring back something to show we really were there, like a pen from someone's desk or something. You mention that you had this experience, and that you put a piece of paper in your pajama pocket. Can you explain what happened to the paper? Do you know how to control lucid dreams so they could be beneficial for us? Q6: If lucid dreaming is real, and I think it is, couldn't we use this skill for improved productivity or creativity in our waking hours? Could athletes use this for mental rehearsal since dreaming of doing something is almost equivalent to actually doing it? What about in the workplace to gain access to ideas or answers to problems? Is there a way to enter lucid dreaming at will vs just randomly happen (which is how it happens for me)? I can't control what I see, it just happens. Q7: How can we “test” ourselves to see if we are dreaming or not so we can develop Lucid dreaming more? Is it like the MATRIX when Neo puts his hand on the wall and it either stops, or goes through? Can we do this to test if we are dreaming or not? What are you learning from your dream experiences to help yourself and others? Q8: For people to learn more about your work, is the best place to follow you on YouTube where you post your lectures? Thank you very much Dr. Jalal, for coming on the podcast, opening up my awareness BEFORE the interview, and giving us all an understanding of how our brain connects to our dream world. I hope it can help others to not be afraid of what they see during REM sleep, and keep searching for answers to help them in their waking hours, with whatever it is they are working on.
