CWD-80 Fame

February 22, 2021

Today we’re going to talk about fame. In our social media-centric world we need to get a handle on this topic. I got the inspiration for this episode from Leo Braudy who wrote “The Frenzy of Renown: Fame and It’s History.” Here’s what I want you to consider today: if you want people to recognize you and remember you, make sure there’s a reason for it. Let’s have coffee.   

CWD-79 The Last 30 Days

CWD-79 The Last 30 Days

January 27, 2021

Here’s a question for you: What have you done in the last month that would justify your actions in the next month? At the beginning of each year we often look back at the past year. Have you ever thought about looking back at the past month and reviewing that instead of looking back at the whole year? Over coffee today I have a few exercises for you to consider.

CWD-78 Is Life Short?

January 25, 2021

Is our life really that short? This is a question that at first seems simple to answer. However, I would invite you today (over a cup of coffee if you like) to consider a different perspective on the answer to this question. Let’s take a sip and dive in.

CWD-77 Set Goals

This seems like an appropriate topic at the beginning of a new year but it is relevant at any time.  Set goals; simply put, If you don’t know where you’re going you’ll probably never get there.

CWD-76 Get Outside

CWD-76 Get Outside

November 2, 2020

In today’s podcast I decided that rather than hold off until I had something more organized to present, I would instead just go ahead and talk about something that seems so simple but so necessary in today’s cultural climate - get outside!

CWD-74 Internal vs External Factors

CWD-74 Internal vs External Factors

October 7, 2020

The external factors in our lives are relatively inconsequential. It’s our character and virtues that determine our happiness. Those are internal. Let’s explore this today over a cup of your favorite beverage.

CWD-73 Why?

CWD-73 Why?

September 16, 2020

One of the first things I did when I was young, (and BTW - my kids do this too) is respond to my parents after they would tell me something with - “why?”  Invariably it would lead to a chain of “why” responses until the temptation out of exasperation is to reply with - “because i said so.” Well, that didn’t always end the conversation but it does help you think about things. So today, I invite you to step back with me and take a look at what you do every day from a child’s perspective.

CWD-72 Friendship

August 24, 2020

Today we’re going to discuss a few different types of friendship. Why is this important? Because it helps up understand the relationships we have with each other. And even more important how it can inspire us to improve our role in these relationships. Pour a cup and let’s savor this one together.

CWD-71 Interdependence

August 3, 2020

There’s a book I would highly recommend that you read if you can. It’s a book by Steven Covey and one of the topics he covers is the subject of today’s podcast. It is the idea of interdependence - as contrasted with dependence and independence. There is one of these three that is the better way. Let’s grab a cup o’ joe and unpack this one.  Thanks for listening.
