Do you want to reach your potential? Do you want to get past seeing your properties as limitations? Larry shares going from being what he is and we all are -- regular people -- to living his dream. An elite dream. My biggest takeaway from the conversation you're about to hear is accessibility and desire to help. That is, Larry Yatch wants us to ...…
 
The world is moving deeper into the digital world and at an alarmingly fast pace. As a result, today’s technology has leveled the business playing field. In this fast-moving virtual age, establishing a strong personal brand has become a critical part of being a Creative Warrior. Whether it’s on or offline, your personal brand is about giving pe ...…
 
Why bother not flying if you're one person out of billions? Aren't you just missing out and suffering without meaningfully changing anything? These questions flummoxed me for a while. The longer I act, the more I realize the answer. Most people answer that little things add up or that it's like voting. I won't argue with those answers, but I th ...…
 
The thing about goal setting is you can set all the goals you want, make all the plans and create the lists, but if you don't have mindsets to support you, your goals aren't as likely to work out. In this episode, I share ideas to strengthen positive mindsets and weaken mindsets that are obstacles. The Talking Stick is in your hands now. Let us ...…
 
I've recorded a few posts about how what many people call minimalism is really more maximal. From the outside it looks like minimizing stuff.d People who practice it, as I see it, don't focus on stuff. Getting rid of it is a means to an end. The end is more emotion, relationships, and connection---family, community, faith, and other things that ...…
 
Following up episode 253, I address race, sex, sexual preference and other difference people use as excuses to stop listening or understanding over. Here are my notes I worked from: Podcast: Race, sex, sexual preference. I mentioned the race of the people who mugged me and my friends and who punched me in the jaw. Mayhave sounded unnecessary, w ...…
 
Here are my notes that I read from for this post: My greatest triumphs, my greatest shames. When I share personal stuff people always write how they like it. I think it's less important than learning the joys of stewardship and recognizing that flying any time you want or having blueberries 12 months a year doesn't improve your life, but it may ...…
 
As entrepreneurs, we can always learn from studying companies that really understand what they’re doing. From branding to customer service, there is always more to learn. I especially get excited when I get the opportunity to unpack a brand with someone who understands it intimately. Airbnb is a brand that I’ve come to truly respect. I’ll be co ...…
 
Tia has been active on the environment for a long time, working with government, non profits, as an individual, and since birth deeply connected with federal and state government. And of course Earth Day from the start. We covered topics including planned obsolescence, politics, carbon taxes and accounting, Vince Lombardi, Brent Suter from the ...…
 
Here are my notes that I read from for this episode. New comment from reading Countdown by Alan Weisman Overpopulation is major issue. Challenges are culture, religion, lack of education, lack of birth control He presented research results of demand for birth control by women -- about 250 million. Figure about a guy for each: 500 million I figu ...…
 
Readers and listeners have commented on my writing and posting lately about population and birth rates. Why do I talk about them? Isn't America below replacement level? I recently finished reading Countdown by Alan Weisman, which I recommend. I read passages and commented on them in episode 248: Countdown, a book I recommend by Alan Weisman. It ...…
 
Often when launching a new company or business, we are looking for a map that will guide us from seed to conception. On my journey, I looked for any source that would help me on my path. Some strategies worked, but many of them did not. Looking back, I have to think of how helpful it would have been if someone would have been able to provide a ...…
 
Since our first episode, I've been talking about these mayors choosing to pick up garbage. I believe that a man never stands so tall as when he bends down to pick up another person's garbage. How many U.S. politicians can you name who bend down to pick up other people's garbage? Yet how many American streets, waterways, and beaches do you see c ...…
 
I just finished an eye-opening book, Countdown, by Alan Weisman. It covers population. Weisman traveled to and reported on about a dozen places' views and practices on population and family planning. In this episode, I read a few passages that I found shocking. I barely scratch the book's surface, but I believe you'll find the sections equally ...…
 
There's one bit of advice I find myself saying to branding and coaching clients all the time, No, I'm not going to reveal it here. You have to listen to the episode! And I would listen as I'm sure if I had the good fortune to work with you personally, at some point I'm likely to give you the same advice. The Talking Stick is in your hands now. ...…
 
People resist environmental projects to protect jobs, even to keep producing products that pollute. My absurd proposal to balance jobs with junk: put factories next to landfills. Despite it being absurd, the proposal would create a cleaner world. Instead of making junk as a pretense for some counterproductive welfare, let's stop making it.…
 
What emotions do you associate with environmental action? I find people associate shame and guilt with it. I find these emotions lead people to suppress the emotions and hide the behavior leading to it. I propose reacting to pollution and polluting behavior with disgust. If someone hands me a plastic bottle of water, I feel disgust. I propose r ...…
 
One of my main goals for this podcast is to bring people who love acting on one's environmental values, seeing stewardship not as an obligation but as being a part of something greater than yourself, than any of us, benefiting everyone, and yourself. As you'll hear, Tia's roots precede the first Earth Day. Her father started it. Despite so many ...…
 
When people think about making changes in their business, they often think about massive life-altering changes. What if the changes we need to make are small detail-oriented changes? Subtle improvements in our customer service can increase the value of our relationships leading to major results over time. We can alter the way we interact with o ...…
 
Learning that humans only recently developed the concept of extinction. Much of the West, for example, believed in a Great Chain of Being, spontaneous generation, and a biblical flood. That perspective suggests that many past behaviors we consider unconscionable may have seemed even humane then, like walking up to a rhinoceros and shooting it i ...…
 
I'm asked all the time what books I suggest. Reading two books a week to keep up with interviews for Creative Warriors, over 5+ years you can imagine how many books I've read. These are the best of the best. Links to each book are below. Enjoy and always respect the power of the written word to pass on wisdom! The Talking Stick is in your hands ...…
 
Tired of people saying what you do doesn't matter? Or personal action in general? They're confusing different types of action. In this recording I distinguish three of them so you can feel comfortable acting by your values without the naysayers and navel-gazers distracting you. The three categories are Personal action, like avoiding packaged fo ...…
 
I talk a lot about the lack of leadership in the area of the environment. Many people talk about change but don't lead it. Many others judge but don't support, which leads people to hold back on trying. Well, the mayors of Orlando and Orange County Florida went out of their way and found me. Most guests I seek out. Instead, they took it on them ...…
 
Why a military general? Isn't the US military one of the greatest polluters on the planet? My goal is to bring effective leadership to the environment and your life because spreading facts, figures, doom, and gloom isn't doing it. Leadership is about people. Technology and innovation have historically increased pollution, as I described in othe ...…
 
As Creative Warriors, we’re always looking for ways to expand our business and build new relationships. We often look for things outside of ourselves that will help us gain a strategic advantage. What if the edge we need is something we currently possess? A gift and an ability that is within us already. There is no master formula or a step-by-s ...…
 
In what has become an end-of-the-year annual tradition on Creative Warriors, in this episode I share ideas about setting your theme for next year. Why it's important, how to go about discovering your theme and how your theme integrates into your goals for 2020. Your theme is your north star, your guide and what will keep you on track! Listen in ...…
 
The loudest voices these days seem to come from protesters because they design their actions for attention. They aren't necessarily the most effective. Many of us are outraged. Our emotions become intense. Emotional intensity drives us to do what we want most, which doesn't necessarily lead to what's effective. As I see it, people are venting m ...…
 
I am continuously looking for new authentic ways to connect with people. Personal connections have been essential for me when looking to create new business relationships. It's a vital part of my professional strategy. The goal is to expand my business in an organic way that genuinely connects with the people I intend to work with professionall ...…
 
Here are the notes I read this episode from: I see human population decreasing the Earth's ability to sustain life and human society. I have a goal of increasing that ability. Actually two goals: my other goal is for people to enjoy the process. This isn't about coercion but joy. If our human population is over what the Earth can sustain, then ...…
 
Here are the notes I read from for this episode. I've talked about what I call The Worst Problem in the World for about ten years, so I'm used to it and worked from scarce notes. The problem Example: Germans and Jamaicans In environment: people say others don't care Makes people feel misunderstood, disengage, makes you seem judgmental Repels pe ...…
 
The notes I wrote and read from for this episode: Leadership means changing beliefs and goals. If you're doing anything else, you're following and perpetuating the system that created the results. Greater efficiency, recycling, reusing, etc are following, just accelerating, unless you change the goals. Are you clearly and overwhelmingly opposin ...…
 
In business, we're often taught to achieve at all costs. But what if there’s a better way to approach entrepreneurialism that still leads to success and achievement. A way to bring more peace, calm, and artistry to your business life. Being an entrepreneur is similar to being an artist. You are creating something from nothing, and you genuinely ...…
 
Here is the text I read from for this post: My environmental role models Why my role models? Because people keep saying what I do is inaccessible. That it's too much or extreme. That they need to balance. Well everyone believes they're balanced. I have to balance too. My difference is that I keep moving toward my values. Instead of letting Amer ...…
 
People littering is creepy, like a tick or other parasite. It gets under my skin. I don't like it, but if I want to help people stop their parasitical, tick-like behavior, I feel it helps to understand them. Leadership rests on empathy, which sometimes means understanding the feelings and motivations of people who do things you consider disgust ...…
 
After observing a number of situations recently where leaders seem to have a lack of understanding of those they lead, it got me wondering about measurable empathy intelligence. We have tests, assessments and scales for every other kind of intelligence but empathy intelligence doesn't even exist. As far as Google is concerned. It's always wrapp ...…
 
Here are the notes I read from to make this episode, sometimes diverging from them. Why I don't call our environmental situation a crisis. People think scientists will solve something or engineers will create a solution and we can go back to before. We will never return to this lifestyle, which, by the way, is a tremendous advance if you value ...…
 
I've been sharing the sentiment of how people today seem to think of our times versus how people from other times would see now. I expect they'd view us with horror, disgust, and disdain. Today's post reprises that perspective. Here are the note I wrote that I worked from: People say homeless live better than kings before. TVs, fly around the w ...…
 
Sometimes I have concerns about technology and the impact it is having on society. Whether positive or negative, it has become an integral part of our lives, both professionally and personally. With the advances we’ve made in technology, there are still some significant questions about its impact. Will it lead us to a perfect or a dystopian fut ...…
 
Since recording this episode, Michael has become Google's Lead for Circular Economy. Michael took on a challenge many people consider: biking to work for a month. He challenged himself amid product releases at work and family obligations as his wife traveled, so he couldn't just start. He had to plan and work at it. Even so, he created cheerlea ...…
 
We all strive to provide the best customer service possible. But what if good or even exceptional customer service isn't enough? Excellent customer service is too easy to replicate so it's still hard to stand out. What could be better than serving people? Seeing them. Really seeing them and all that is important to them. Feeling seen, heard and ...…
 
When we pollute, we think we act for the reasons in our minds that justify that behavior, but those reasons generally come after we choose, motivated to justify behavior we consider wrong. Most environmental analysis looks at the science of what pollutes more or less. Today I look at the mental processes and emotions behind choosing polluting b ...…
 
Brad identified the problem of people acting or not as our emotions and behavior, which many forces contribute to. We also talk about media and scientists. This refinement of the understanding to emotions points to what to work on that I see few environmentalists unaddressing: emotions, feelings, and community, not technology, innovation. Almos ...…
 
I believe many people believe we live in an age of wonder and that people from any other time would envy us. I believe future generations will not look at our flying and pollution not with envy but with horror, as we look at slave holders and people who didn't resist Hitler. The sooner we get that into our thick skulls, the sooner we'll enjoy l ...…
 
People keep describing my environmental actions as praiseworthy. I think they do it to make it seem harder and less accessible to do themselves what they expect will be hard, deprivation, sacrifice, and not what they want to do. Making what I do sound good makes what they do normal. I prefer to see not polluting as normal and polluting as abnor ...…
 
A few words on growth and how people misunderstand it, especially economists. I start by talking about my window garden cherry tomato plants and how the inability of the insects eating them to regulate their growth and up destroying the plants and thereby their own population. Can we outdo bugs? I'm not sure. An educated friend showed surprise ...…
 
If you want to attract business you must have a story that is interesting. Business owners often miss out on opportunities or cannot close a deal because they didn't make a lasting impression. Many think that it's luck, but it's not. It's important to spend time molding, crafting, and perfecting your story; it can change your future. Success de ...…
 
Could it be that we're becoming more positive? That marketing pain and negativity is no longer what people need to see before they seek a solution? It seems so! Or at least negativity is not all they want to see. Find out how to market aspiration and paint a picture of all that's possible! The Talking Stick is in your hands now. Let us hear fro ...…
 
Today's episode with guest Brad P, a dating coach and guru---well, former, since he's moved on, as he'll share---partly reveal a major part of my social and emotional development as an adult. He was in a sense my boss when I coached mostly men but a few women on dating and attraction skills, which I did before coaching executives, entrepreneurs ...…
 
A lack of clarity can severely hinder the life of a creative professional. You can have a bunch of daily tasks and plenty of work to do, but without clarity, you don't have a clear idea of why you're doing it and how it will benefit your overall goal strategy. With clarity, you can stay flexible on the path to achieving each goal. Clarity of pu ...…
 
Polio terrorized the world. People died and became paralyzed and there were no defenses to it. Science understood it and eventually Jonas Salk found a vaccine. Just having a vaccine wasn't enough. They needed massive global public projects to disseminate it. Is the connection to our current environmental problems obvious? As I see it, our behav ...…
