SISD #28 - The Everyday Philanthropist with Dan Pallotta
Dan Pallotta has disrupted the non-profit sector because of one simple premise - He dared to dream big. Not only that, but he encouraged non-profits to dream big as well and get the support they deserve. It is very difficult to understand the non-profit world at first glance, but Dan has done an excellent job helping people know how to evaluate and support different charities. He recently released a book called "The Everyday Philanthropist" that details everything you need to know about your own charitable habits, and how they interact with non-profits. Dan is probably best known for his record setting Ted Talk "The way we think about charity is dead wrong". If you're interested in learning more about helping others through philanthropy, I highly suggest you check out Dan's work.

Now let me finish... while you are nothing special, that's the best part. It's because everything can do anything, and you are nothing special in that you can do anything too!
01:54

Run From the Catalyst, Run Toward the Dream with Shane Sams
In order to sustain motivation you need to know what you're trying to run from, the catalyst. In order to know  how to do what you want to do next, you need the dream.
02:16
May 7, 2020
"Like a dream that don't come true, something better will come to you."
It's within our own linear thinking where we try to reason what's "meant" to happen to us. But we aren't capable of accessing the larger plan. We must trust the process!
01:54
May 7, 2020
Give Someone Two Options
This is a classic sales tip. No options and they can't take action. One option and they have no agency. Too many options and they get decision fatigue. 2 options is just right!

02:37
April 17, 2020
"Everything comes to you at the right moment."
Given the circumstances, it's more important than ever to have faith in the process. Especially when it's most difficult!
02:09
April 16, 2020
You Can Pretend To Care But You Can't Pretend To Show Up

You Are Too Close To See The Truth
Perspective is an amazing gift, but it's also important to recognize its limitations. If you're struggling to solve something, take a step back and ask for a new opinion. You might know too much to be able to adequately solve it.

Life Is Hard
Life is hard and it's okay to feel that way. But remember that your life and its challenges are relative to you.

"Motivate yourself to be better everyday."
Motivation is: “the reason one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.” Figure out what matters to you,  why it matters, and you'll never be searching for motivation again.

"Make your happiness a priority."
Your happiness is about YOU. I understand that there are real priorities in life - kids, family, bills, health. And sometimes offering support in those areas comes at the expense of your own happiness. But the truth is, you won't be able to offer yourself fully and effectively in those areas until you take care of yourself. Make your happiness a priority!
02:16
January 9, 2020
Treat Yourself Like Someone You Love
Today's tip is inspired by a spoken-word piece written and performed by Adam Roa. It starts off talking about how society negatively shapes our reality to leverage monetary gain, and then goes into how we can go about seeking the truth.

"Stop giving energy to the things you don't want."
Happiness is part of an equation. It's not exclusively about how much positivity you have adding to your life, but also how much negativity is pulling from your life. It's human nature, but we need to be intentional about not giving energy to things we don't want.
