Public communication is when (usually) a single person delivers a monologue to a group of people.
Andy Stanley is a massive inspiration to Mthoko and Ross. Here is a talk he did on 'How to give a talk':
In this new series we're going to be talking about communication. Communication is the exchange of information. Sometimes to be more effective at what we're trying to achieve we need to communicate better, more effectively or more broadly. This series is about how to do exactly that. Join us as we explore the art of communication.
Over the past few weeks we've spoken about how to:
1. Have a good goal
2. Have the right environment
3. Show up
And this week we are talking about rewarding ourselves. This is what makes a habit enjoyable. It's what makes doing the habit worth it in the short term.
In this episode we talk about showing up. In other words, actually doing the thing. You know, like Shia Lebouf? Today we talk about the importance of optimising for the start, not the finish and how important it is not to miss a day. And, what to do when you do miss a day.
Habits are what define who we are going to be in the future. Last episode we spoke about our 4 part Habit creation framework. This episode we talk about how to have a Good Goal and the importance of having the right environment.
Habits are what define who we are going to be in the future. In this episode we talk about what a Habit is, why Habits are important. We also outline a 4 part frame work inspired by James Clear that will help you either make new habits, or break the older bad habits.
