We assume, because of our modern loneliness epidemic, that being alone is bad, not realizing that there are healthy forms of loneliness and unhealthy forms. The legendary John Prine wrote a powerful song entitled The Speed of The Sound of Loneliness. His lyric lends insight into a common reality for leaders, “you've broken the speed of the sound of loneliness, you're out there runnin' just to be on the run.” After launching, incubating, or purchasing a business, the owner or founder begins running at a speed that very few can or will match in the remaining days, years, and decades of the business. For many, it is a hyper-speed, superhuman pace, unsustainable over time. There is a sound to loneliness, a narrative, a rhythm that can be of great value to the leader, but for most, they ignore and blast right through the speed of the sound of loneliness and they continue running at a superhuman pace because it is the only way to give momentary satisfaction for our obsession of productivity. We make excuses and say that we really do care about “quality” or “customer service”, when in reality what we really care about is that this “perfect” business we grew has no spot or blemish when placed into the care of others. Loneliness forces us to see the warts, the blemishes, the imperfections. Loneliness forces us to reckon with our own humanity… our limitations. Loneliness offers an opportunity to find joy in the imperfections, or to deny that imperfections can exist and pick up the speed of our running so that we can “feel like we're doing something”. A dear mentor of mine told me in November of 2015, “My favorite thing about you is not your productivity”. It stung. I am well known and regarded precisely for my productivity and affinity for systems and processes, and my friend to a surgeon's scalpel to the thing that I embraced the most. His encouragement felt like rebuke, and it was needed. It would have never been heard without time and space for relationship…an ironic twist on solitude. There is healthy loneliness and unhealthy loneliness. There are healthy relationships and unhealthy relationships. If you are to be an executive leader of impact, then you will make time for solitude. Recalling the story of how Nike wooed Michael Jordan as its game-changing endorsement personality Sonny Vacarro was shocked when Nike founder Phil Knight decided to change his mind and commit the entirety of the Nike basketball endorsement money to one player. Originally against the unprecedented idea, Vacarro asked Knight, “What changed?” Knight's response? “I went for a run.” The story may not be true… but the principle is. A portion of that solitude will be committed to a few, meaningful, sincere, and intentional relationships. Relationships with people in person, and with people in publication. Nearly one out of every two adults has not read a book in the last 12 months. That is not an option for an Executive Leader. If Executive Leadership is creating proximity to motivate a team to pursue the named future you see, then part of the proximity you create are towards relationships that can provide mutual sourcing for motivation and vision. Rarely does a person develop a vision from nothing. We all generate vision from a body of source material, experiences, and inputs. Leaders need curated input, but too often we crank up the volume of the masses in the search for a non-caloric “silver bullet” instead of eagerly pursuing the small, subtle voice of wisdom that is dripping with sustenance. How do we know if our time is being devoted to wise solitude, whether alone or with someone, or to noisy isolation as we infinite-scroll the doomsday logs at the ready in our feeds? The Solitude Matrix helps us to understand where we can make time for solitude; both alone and with others. Imagine a quadrant where your horizontal axis on the top is devoted to substance and on the left and surface on the right. The vertical axis on the left side is devoted to solitary at the top and social at the bottom. When a leader devotes themselves to surface-level conversation in a solitary surrounding (top right) it leads to the hopelessness of unchecked voices in our minds, a belief that what you see is always because perspective has no access, and solutions are fabricated many times to problems that don't exist (or at least are not significant). When a leader devotes themselves to surface-level conversation in a social surrounding (bottom right) it leads to an interaction that feels fake. Not a relationship, but instead an obligation. In these fake interactions, we find ourselves obsessed with “who's got it more together”, and wanting to become the highest “spender” so we can steal the show. Fake conversations leave us empty as we leave hoping that our social standing improved during the interaction. When a leader devotes themselves to substance-level conversation in a social surrounding (bottom left) they are actively building relationships. There is a focus on connecting with a healthy mix of emotion and empathy. A relationship interaction from a leader is comfortable with awkward silence because simple presence is valued, and there is a shared decor (SWAG, music, food, or event) that is meaningful. When a leader devotes themselves to substance-level conversation in a solitary surrounding (top left) they achieve the hallmark of leadership; wisdom and vision. Healthy solitude allows for active listening by reading or thinking, writing to capture what they hear, thoughtful planning to map out clarity, and intentional reflection to celebrate wins and mourn losses. Sherry Turkle defines healthy solitude as “the time you become familiar and comfortable with yourself...Without solitude, we cannot construct a stable sense of self.” (Turkle pg.. 61). Solitude with distraction robs us of that, leaving us confused and setting us up to hurt other people. This leads to the myth of the modern brainstorming sessions to be our primary mode of breeding helpful bouts of creativity. Turkle (pg. 62) goes on to say that “Our brains are most productive when there is no demand that they be reactive...new ideas are more likely to emerge from people thinking on their own. Solitude is where we can learn to trust our imagination.” Solitude is the healthy version of being alone On the other hand, the philosopher and theologian Paul Tillich says, “Language...has created the word ‘loneliness' to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude' to express the glory of being alone.” Loneliness is painful because it allows the space for shame to be revealed. Shame in our past, shame in our present. When we medicate with the substance of busy-ness then we ensure that shame remains safely swept under the rug. Loneliness is not the same as solitude. Picasso said, “Without great solitude, no serious work is possible”. The human spirit NEEDS healthy alone time.
Darrel Perkins, author of the art book The End is at Hand: An Illustrated History of the Apocalypse, and professor of Visual Communication at the American University in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, joins the podcast to talk about his experience chronicling humanity's obsession with the end of the world, and how mass movements and cults alike have projected their wildest fears onto reality throughout history.

Jewish Inspiration Podcast · Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe
In this episode, Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe shares a short & sweet idea of inspiration on the three holy day of preparation for the holiday of Shavuot. In Exodus 19 the Torah relays the instruction Hashem commanded the Jewish people with in preparation for the greatest revelation ever, where Hashem spoke to the Jewish people directly. Without any intermediary, and not through any conduit. Hashem spoke to us and proclaimed "Anochi Hashem Elokecha" - "I Am Hashem Your God." Such an event demands a preparation to be appropriately ready for such an experience. This Jewish Inspiration Podcast by Rabbi Aryeh Wolbe of TORCH (Ep. #195) is dedicated to my dear wife, Zehava, for her partnership in every single word of Torah I teach, and all the work done at TORCH.

Mike Fabarez Sermons on Focal Point
Fully Aware of Our Society's Idolatry
Compass Bible Church - Weekend Services
Modern culture is still inundated with idols, as each day people pursue goals which the one and only true God can truly and completely supply.
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit wisdomofcrowds.liveAre big ideas still possible? Are there any “new” ideas left—and what makes an idea new in the first place? If we need new ideas to shake ourselves out of decadence, we should be careful what we wish for. Wokeness is one such “comprehensive framework.” Others might prove similarly frightening.This week, Shadi is joined by New York Times columnist and author of The Decadent Society and the political philosopher . Recently, Sam wrote an essay “Thinking is Risky”, which was cited in Ross's newsletter, calling on academics to be more intellectually courageous. Sam's call to action relates to a recurring theme in Ross's work — namely that society faces “decadent” stagnation (or worse, decay) on a number of fronts. To transcend modern mediocrity, the three discuss a path to renewal, but as Shadi argues, the risks of doing so are real.In the full episode (for paying subscribers only), the three discuss the extent a break from decadence can be achieved through religion. After all, if what makes an idea “big” is that it offers up a metaphysical/cosmic account of the universe, then cultural renewal may require religion. Anything less would be limiting and finite. Ross makes the case that religious belief is “obviously appropriate”, predicting that elites will eventually recognize its value. But is it enough for people to instrumentally appreciate the importance of religion, or must they believe themselves? Video of this podcast will be available later this week.Required Reading:* The Decadent Society, by Ross Douthat (Amazon).* “Thinking Is Risky,” by Samuel Kimbriel (Wisdom of Crowds).* “Why Journalists Have More Freedom Than Professors,” by Ross Douthat (New York Times).* Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life, by William Deresiewicz (Amazon).* “At least it's an ethos” from The Great Lebowski.* “Nude” lyrics, by Radiohead.Wisdom of Crowds is a platform challenging premises and understanding first principles on politics and culture.

544 God Reveals His Wisdom for His Purposes, a Guided Christian Meditation on Daniel 2:29-30 with the Recenter With Christ app The purpose of this podcast is to help you find more peace in your life and connect with the true source of peace, Jesus Christ. Outline: Relaxation, Reading, Meditation, Prayer, Contemplation and Visualization. Get into a place where you can sit comfortably and uninterrupted for about 20 minutes.You should hopefully not be driving or anything tensing or unrelaxing. If you feel comfortable to do so, I invite you to close your eyes. Guided Relaxation / Guided Meditation: Breathe and direct your thoughts to connecting with God. Let your stomach be a balloon inflate, deflate. Scripture for Meditation Daniel 2 NIV 29 “As Your Majesty was lying there, your mind turned to things to come, and the revealer of mysteries showed you what is going to happen. 30 As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than anyone else alive, but so that Your Majesty may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind. NKJV 29 As for you, O king, thoughts came to your mind while on your bed, about what would come to pass after this; and He who reveals secrets has made known to you what will be. 30 But as for me, this secret has not been revealed to me because I have more wisdom than anyone living, but for our sakes who make known the interpretation to the king, and that you may know the thoughts of your heart. Meditation: What role does knowledge play in the gospel and what role does it play in our life? Sometimes we can get caught up in thinking that our understanding is perfect or that we fully understand the mysteries of God. When we pause to think about it of course we recognize that our human understanding is limited. God's spirit is what lifts us up in everything, especially knowledge. Also there is purpose in God showing us His mysteries. God showed Daniel His mysteries for Gods purpose. God knows His goals. God is the one that can share a sliver of His mysteries. Our human brains are so limited. The book of John says that if all the books were written about Jesus were written the world alone could not hold them. Thank God that He gives us the knowledge we need to do what He needs usto do. Meditation of Prayer: Pray as directed by the Spirit. Dedicate these moments to the patient waiting, when you feel ready ask God for understanding you desire from Him. Meditation of God and His Glory / Hesychasm: I invite you to sit in silence feeling patient for your own faults and trials.

Sitting in a room listening to a variety of presentations, most of them non-engaging with slides that looked like this. HUH? Then a physician stands up and begins to relay a series of statistics accompanied by stories. The suicide attempts among college girls have increased from 1% to 2%...a 100% increase in a 2-year span. Nearly 1 in 3 girls have contemplated suicide. We have a college-aged daughter and two college-aged sons…this woke me up. After the presentation, I waited until the presenter was finished shaking hands and walked over into a quiet corner where he was refreshing coffee and asked, “What happened?” His response, in paraphrase…” it is well documented that there is a two-year reversal in behavior among HS and college students in general…so instead of an 18-year-old dealing with 18-year-old things, you have an 18-year-old who is developmentally 16, trying to deal with 28-year-old things because of the unfiltered availability of information.” Thirty years ago, a small subsection of people in the lowcountry of South Carolina would have known of the intimate details of the Alex Murdaugh trial… now there are people in New York, California, and Indonesia whose lives have been impacted by a very very local story. That is 28-year-old Grown Adult information, being straight-veined into 16-year-old minds in New York City while also trying to deal with acne, prom dates, and asking, “Should I download Snapchat OR TikTok OR Tinder OR all three?” There is a narrative that we have heard around the country as we have spoken to groups in Tampa, CLT, ATL, Houston, Dallas, LA, and Vegas…. “Nobody wants to work anymore.” The business owners are looking at the labor pool, and looking at the modern “flexible work environment” and concluding… “Nobody wants to work anymore.” The key leaders are looking at the teams they are leading, and/or the people they are trying to hire and train and conclude… “Nobody wants to work anymore.” But let us reason together for a moment. Really ask, do people REALLY not want to work? REALLY? Do people REALLY want to wake up in a fog, sit around on the couch, indulge in meaningless things all day, eat dinner, watch Maury Povich and Dr. Phil, go to sleep, and do it all over again day after day after day? No. You know what people want? What YOU want?” MEANING You want to be-the-better you know you have the capacity to be! You want what you do to matter! You want what you do to move the needle! You don't want to stand around the cubicle wasteland and drone on and on about the TPS report. To do meaningful things, things that matter, there are 3 things that I want to reiterate, remind, and regurgitate… First, you need hard coachING and you need TO coach hard A reshaping is needed (chucks pottery example sermon 2/26) It offers mobility, portability… And yet, periodically needs to be reshaped and reformed. Pottery shifted an entire economic culture Allowed for portable societies The beauty of the pottery metaphor is that… Solid, hard coaching re-forms, both as you receive and give thoughtful coaching The alternative of this is to ignore coaching, the sound of which just sounds idiotic. Kyrie Irving/Kevin Durant (audio) Nothing good will be done that is done outside of wisdom and accountability Tech will change, languages will change, empires will come and go Wisdom and accountability have and will always be Instead of seeking principle wisdom, We PURSUE THE BEST books, conferences, podcasts, and new strategies to find non-caloric solutions that will run themselves so we don't have to work. THEY WILL NOT… We keep trying to buy the BEST project management software, CRM, billing system… The BEST software is the software that you will actually use!...it requires action The BEST town is the town you will actually live life in…it requires action The BEST car is the one you will actually drive…it requires action The BEST spouse is the one you will actually enjoy spending time with…it requires action ALL of these require YOUR choice, and YOUR action WHY did we see a regress of maturity and cognitive capability among a younger generation? Not realizing that solving problems IS THE JOB ROLE Because outside forces stepped in (including us in this room) and did not allow them to work the muscle of their own independence! What we touted as flexibility became inactivity and apathy…just waiting. We've done much the same in our business trying to remove people from the challenge of solving problems… We have a tool called the Ideal Weekly Schedule…it is among the SIMPLEST tools a BOP coach brings in their toolbelt. You want the adherence level of an Ideal Weekly Schedule is? 30 minutes of pre-work 2 minutes of review daily UNLIMITED discipline and implementation Parkinson's Law tells us that “work expands to the time allotted” Was challenged to do a duel The night before the duel, he wrote letters to friends… Then wrote his “Mathematical Testament” that changed the entire landscape of modern math…IN ONE NIGHT Annie Dillard - a weekly schedule is “willed, faked and so brought into being” Give yourself a week and you'll take a week…give yourself an hour and you'll take an hour EVARISTE GALOISE A POLITICAL ACTIVIST AND MATHEMATICIAN…and a man of turmoil Less than 20% if we're being very generous You know what an Ideal Weekly Schedule requires? A manufactured stricture of our time creates urgency Instead of the weekly schedule, we look at the sub-contractor, the vendor, the customer, our own team and point our finger at them blaming our haphazard week on outside forces. We assume all MEANINGFUL time means personal time Assuming you believe in creation, one of the very first things we as humans were created to do was to WORK There is MEANING IN WORK. THAT IS FULL TIME -> BEST EFFORT YOU OWN YOUR TIME, and YOU WANT THAT TIME TO BE MEANINGFUL within the helpful expectations your business has helped set for you Not to work ALWAYS Not to work SOMETIMES We were designed to work, and rest, and work, and rest…a rhythm When we surround ourselves with the accountability of coaching (internally and externally), we are pushed to work and rest When we lead a person who needs to BE coached, we surround them with the accountability to work and rest, work and rest REALITY: We are trying to rest, pass it off as work and excuse it as “flexibility” Our current narrative: “I need flexibility to interrupt the drudgery of work to take care of life” Let's reframe the narrative: “Technology has provided the flexibility to check in on life while I'm doing meaningful work, and to be fully present in life while I am resting from work” Coaching will hold you accountable so you can find meaning in both. By which YOU can now coach others to do the same. The Second reminder of meaningful work: happiness is elusive, joy is manufactured Full confession - I'm teaching this as a student…not the expert Hedonic treadmill: “these conveniences by becoming habitual had almost entirely ceased to be enjoyable, and at the same time degenerated into true needs, it became much more cruel to be deprived of them than to possess them was sweet, and men were unhappy to lose them without being happy to possess them.” - Jean-Jacques Rousseau TRUE STORY: We've achieved a lot of chaos-busting tools and coaching, and yet a failure that we have had at BOP since we started in 2015 is building an incentive compensation structure and coaching module that works for everyone A constantly rising tide that could go up…or down leaving the business in a tough spot if it doled out its reserves. We have never seen more than 10-15% of employees offer a sincere and non-expectant thank you for additional compensation received (bonuses, etc.) Why? The joy of possessing them was immediately rooted out by the numbness of expecting them Why have we pushed so hard against year-end, random bonuses? B/c the human psyche can't help but see it as a recurring expectation…joy is lost b/c the convenience was never found… FLIP THE NARRATIVE IN YOUR HEAD: “All joy…make it your in-front-of thought” James 1:2 - James was the son of an Israeli Construction worker who lived in a village town between Haifa on the Mediterranean and the modern Sea of Galilee When they were older, his brother was falsely accused of a crime, and murdered in public James was beheaded because of his teaching and his body buried in Spain What was the message he taught? “All joy…make it your in-front-of (first before any) thought” What is joy - a willful acceptance that a situation has brought you favor Testing leads to endurance Endurance leads to growth Growth leads to fullness Fullness is the opposite of emptiness which is what many of us feel now. Choosing Joy in hard things = Satisfaction and not emptiness WHY JOY? ACTION: A NEW QUESTION TO ADD FOR CHECK IN: “what hard thing happened this week that you can find joy in?” Third, your job is to swim in a pool of problems and solve them This was the wisdom of the great Vanilla Ice - “If you've got a problem, yo, I'll solve it…” Without a PROBLEM, there is no need for a solution, therefore no need for job roles…no need for services and products. Artif. Intel. can now perform both repetitive and non-repetitive tasks But they cannot solve problems with a human touch Your role exists b/c of PROBLEMS, so it is unreasonable for any of us to be convinced that your role will be without continuous challenge Fortitude: courage in pain and adversity…courage when problems persist A new training course at USC: How to Fail: A Resilience Building Workshop Universities across the country are seeing the need for proactive training in the area of a) identifying problems, b) learn from problems c) solve problems, d) endure thru problems We are in a space and time where we need to embrace the power both of the problem, and finding joy in solving the problem Billing glitch…opportunity for gratitude that you get to solve it Sub-contractor no show…opportunity for gratitude that you get to solve it Client won't follow through…opportunity for gratitude that you get to solve it Marketing machine is not delivering leads…opportunity for gratitude that you get to solve it Sales conversions hit or miss…opportunity for gratitude that you get to solve it It is time to boundary ourselves and get BACK to the work of solving problems where we can use Technology to allow for the flexibility to check in on life while I'm doing meaningful work, and to be fully present in life while I am resting from work Over the next two hours we have set the table for you to either wallow in a large, easy pool of pity…or to put your cape on, take a deep breath, and go to work to solve important problems that will change your life…and in turn, you will change my life. One of our 5 core values is WRITE IT DOWN…what is the ONE thing that jumps out at you, you want to work on?
