Going deep into what we can learn about ourselves each day as we struggle working through challenges. Shared experiences that can make us better and more likely to succeed as we figure out our drive. Finding our optimal selves through intentional pauses.
A little bit catching up, highlights of IBtP for August, a card from Holstee, and the main topic. We are at war with things that want our most valuable resource, our mind. This is about the art of creating space.
It is about the art of focus in getting the right things, at the right times, for the right reasons. Our minds are constantly battling to stay focused. Attention management is the new productivity tool to find mastery in. Just practicing time management isn’t enough.
It’s hard to receive feedback. Especially when that feedback feels personal and very hard to hear. Having some simple strategies at ready can make a big difference in how you receive it and learn from it to grow.
I explore some questions that struck me as profound during last week’s research for the cast and IBtP. Helps to take a moment to capture something that knocks you off center, write it down before you forget how it made you feel, and then come back to explore it later. I take you through my filters and my perspective on 4 questions I wrote down last week.
What Character Are You? Another Holstee draw. This time I picked a question to explore that aligns with creativity as the theme. Ended up being a perfect card to talk through with Avengers: Endgame out this past weekend.
A dip into Holstee Reflection Cards, reflecting habits, and intention.

There is some perspective and a certain amount of intentional curiosity you need before striking off into the unknown on something new you want to master. These questions and some self reflection time can make sure the start is right.
We can go our entire lives with out ever finding it. Some have it and don't even realize it. When you do find your truth and honor it, it can be applied to anything you do creating an incredibly empowering energy.
I spent all last week learning for you about some of the best techniques around that can help us declutter what's in our heads. Like our physical spaces we can apply Marie Konodo's theory to our mental spaces too.
We need someone that can help us see the bigger picture and bring diversity of thought to our work/goals. Coaches do more than push us, give us device, and cheer us on. They can connect us to others that can be just what we need to go further.
First episode I wanted to share the vision overall for this next platform for me. How this meets a very specific purpose as a podcast being my choice to reach a broader audience. Lastly, share how this is aligned to the main goal I've always had with a little share from a resent blog I wrote. Hope you like it!
