Jumpstart - “Altruistic Hedonism”

Jumpstart - “Altruistic Hedonism”

April 7, 2021

I got today’s title from Greg one of our regular JumpStarters who joins me live every day.

According to Greg, “Altruistic Hedonism” is “feeling great by doing good” and in today’s JumpStart I tell you stories of people who have healed their lives and improved their worlds by:

  • Doing something that takes them out of themselves
  • Improving their environment
  • Giving selflessly and feeling AWESOME in the process

Learn how to feel great by doing good starting right now >>>

Jumpstart - Your Stories

Jumpstart - Your Stories

April 6, 2021

WOW, what an afternoon I had yesterday, and the cast of characters included:

  • (1) Rude Lyft Driver
  • (1) Superhero of a mom and her little girl
  • (1) Jaded (maybe even racist) cop

The story is of what went down is amazing but the REAL story is the one that went on in my head as well as the heads of each member of the cast.

See if you can relate >>>

Jumpstart - Who Benefits?

Jumpstart - Who Benefits?

April 5, 2021

I spent the last several days with my daughter and her Husband in Kansas City.

While I was there, I observed that my son-in-law has a morning ritual that seems to be for someone else but in reality I think he’s the one that benefits.

An outsider might look at this situation I think that he is doing this behaviour to get something but in reality it’s all about giving.

  • Do you have rituals for other people?
  • How do you feel when you do something nice for someone else?
  • What could you do today to give yourself that great feeling?

Today, let’s create some new rituals that are for others so that we can enjoy the good feeling of doing nice things for people we love >>>

Jumpstart - The power of struggle

Jumpstart - The power of struggle

April 4, 2021

Back when I used to grow a lot of plants, one of the first things I learned is that plants need to struggle to grow tall and strong.

That’s why, as soon as a shoot breaks the surface a gentle fan begins to agitate the leaves causing the roots to dig deeper.

We all want a stress-free life but…

  • Challenges reveal our hidden selves to us for healing
  • Challenges force us to drive our roots deeper into ourselves and what we believe
  • Challenges cause us to find new and better ways to live

Today, let’s explore (and be grateful for) the power of struggle >>>

Jumpstart - My Final April Fool’s Prank

Jumpstart - My Final April Fool’s Prank

April 2, 2021

Decades ago, I used to be into “practical jokes” -- big time, until I pushed an April Fool’s gag a little too far.

Today,

  • Why that “joke” turned me off to pulling pranks on people
  • Why Schadenfreude is often a key motivator
  • Consider April Friends Day, instead

Whatever your take on April Fools day, I want to know your experiences and your opinions in this JumpStart > > >

Jumpstart - Humans Vs Machines

Jumpstart - Humans Vs Machines

March 29, 2021

According to the old song, the steam engine “drove poor ole John Henry down.”

According to the movies, Skynet sent back a terminator to stop the rebellion from preventing human annihilation.

WOW.  We’ve got some real (and if you heard yesterday’s JumpStart LEGITIMATE) fears around what A.I. might do to us when they get the upper hand.

Humans have one thing A.I. doesn’t -- self doubt

  • Learn how to become more like a computer when solving problems
  • Learn to use every tool at your disposal
  • Learn how to fear machines less and embrace them as symbiotic travelers into our future

The future doesn’t have to be cataclysmic, we can learn from the very machines we’re building and teaching >>>

Jumpstart - Why People are Becoming Angrier and Less Considerate

Jumpstart - Why People are Becoming Angrier and Less Considerate

March 25, 2021

I recently heard a podcast about how Youtube’s algorithm works and it made perfect sense although it also made my blood run cold.

YouTube is a computer with one goal: get your eyeballs and keep them for as long as possible (so our advertisers can rent your attention as you watch)

  • Learn how YouTube’s making Alphabet (it’s parent company) rich by making you mad
  • Learn how you can and MUST break the spell of these algorithms
  • See how it all comes down to “enrage and engage” and how you can stop drifting as a result

If artificial intelligence is dividing us and making us less civil now, it’s time to take a stand before it’s too late > > >
