CLL #576 (feat. The Love between The Two Hosts) 12/14/1997 - Sunday Night Show - Source: JBJ Tape w/ Spinfly Tape patches. (No Guest Adam Breaks Wind) Show contains: Great reenactment of Adam at the John Hiatt concert, gas Great 1997 No guest show. The Lords of Acid are in tomorrow and Buster Poindexter will be in on Tuesday. Adam accidently calls him Buster the Poindexter when he suggests he may actually be Dicky from the Bosstones in disguise. Drew and Adam are on the 7-day a week plan and are about to have enough of each other. What comes up next is one of my favorite reenactments ever done. Last night's guest was John Hiatt. Adam went to John's concert and had a great time, especially during the encore. Before telling the story, he has to explain to Drew how rock concerts do encores. Engineer Mike fires up the song Slow Turning (the song John used for his encore) to help the story telling effect. Drew calls him lame but Adam just tells him to shut up. Adam gets back into it by telling how halfway into the song, John stopped singing and all of a sudden goes: "ADAM, ADAM! DREW! DREW! HELLLLP ME!!! HELLLLP MEEE!!!" 30 seconds later he does it again going: "ADAM, ADAM! HELP MEE! DREEEEEEEEW!!!" Adam then creamed in his pants, comparing himself to one of the crazed fans of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. When Drew gets mad at Adam for not telling him the story before the show, Adam says if he knew the story, Drew would just sit there like a block of petrified wood. Now he is just sitting there like a block of regular wood. Caller Christine asks the question "Are there calories in semen?" Drew says the last time they were asked that question; they were at a balcony of a huge hall in Chicago. A person in the crowd said it was 2,000 calories. That was where Drew got the idea to tell his daughter that. Caller Keith has a creepy grandfather who tried to get him to have sex at the age of 11. Drew suggests it could be a cultural thing. The grandfather was from Poland however. Caller David is driving a semi. Adam can tell it's a truck as soon as the punch him up. Adam makes a reference to a 1970's TV show called "BJ and the Bear." Adam mentions he had a bizarre dream last night. This is the one where Adam gets stuck under a glass coffee table and Drew Carey urinates on him. A caller gets mad on Drew's behalf for him having to go on Charles Grodin's show. When Adam explains how they get stuck on TV shows where nobody knows who him and Drew are, he mocks the dumb host by saying "Hey, it's Dr. Jew and Adam A-hole-a." They also tend to end up getting stuck in between two other random guests on those shows. Adam threatens if screwed up kid's make his taxes get high enough, he is going to move to Geneva and host a show called "Cheese and Chocolate." When it comes time to gamble, Drew says he left his wallet in his Volvo even though Adam saw him leaving Starbucks earlier. Drew brings up that there is a new device available that will actually unlock and start your car for you before you are even in it. Adam recalls his traffic school teaching days when he has to yell at Drew for reading something during the show. Drew asks if he has any good stories from back then. Of course there are several: One time Adam liked one of the girls in a class and looked up her number from the papers he got. He called but got an answering machine with a guy on it and nothing ever happened. Another time he took his class outside to play Frisbee for three hours. It was supposed to be related to teaching them about aerodynamics. Another time, during the one hour lunch break, he went out for drinks with a couple of the students and didn't come back until 2 1/2 hours later. Apparently the place he used to teach at was called "Lettuce Amuse You." Drew makes a reference to Adam's PRS, or Personal Rating Scale. Adam has a batting cage-like moment predicti

309: Adam Gilbert | Psychology of Change  

"Unless you're actually on Jeopardy, knowledge without action is useless!"  - Adam Gilbert

The Cheat Sheet: What's the top reason people fear losing weight? (7:15) Why awareness is the key to making lasting changes. (16:50) The broccoli test: what it is and how to use it.

There's a psychology to making changes that last and Adam is here to give us the golden nuggets on that very topic.

More About This Show:

Adam Gilbert has always been fascinated by the topics of health, fitness, nutrition and psychology. And since 2007 he has made those areas his life's work. He helps people make changes in their health and fitness by understanding what's holding them back psychologically. Inherently, most of us know there is no magic pill or quick-fix to getting healthy and we know we have to eat right, exercise and take care of ourselves to be as healthy as we can be. Adam helps us understand what's in the way, psychologically, to doing so.

On the topic of weight loss, Adam believes there are a lot of psychological factors at work. Is someone afraid of losing weight because they won't fit in with their friends any more? Or perhaps their spouse or significant other doesn't support them in getting fit - their partner sabotages their weight loss efforts by making meals that don't fit their diet plan.

All of those examples have an underlying psychology to them that applies not just to weight loss, but to any area of our lives we're improving. And that psychology is fear of rejection, and fear of success. We may sabotage our efforts in an area because we don't want to lose the friendships and the partner we're comfortable with; we don't want them to reject our new "selves" so we make changes, but don't stick with them.

Adam and I discuss the specific ways to navigate these situations so we can actually be okay with making changes, being uncomfortable and helping others while we're in the process of growing and shifting. One of the most pivotal keys to doing so that Adam and I talk about is awareness. When you're aware of what's happening, you can better navigate any change.

We also dive into the related area of discomfort and how to use it as our compass. Adam believes if we truly want to become the person of our dreams, whether it's a healthy awesome body or the ideal relationship or our perfect job or business, we have to use discomfort to guide us to get there. If we continue to do what's comfortable, we'll continue to stay where we are. So in order to steer us into that new body, relationship, job or business, we have to do what's uncomfortable.

There's so much more Adam and I discuss but one of the biggest takeaways we both want you to get is this: you must take action on this knowledge. All the tricks, tips and tools we give you are pointless until you implement them. So listen to this show, get yourself a coach or accountability partner to help you and then take action!

Adam was a terrific guest and I enjoyed having him on the show, I hope you enjoy this episode as well. Be sure to check out the gift he's giving all of you, you'll find it in the Resources section below. Thanks for listening and we'll see you next time.

60: Chasing the PGA Tour (and what it’s going to take to get there) with Adam Long  

What does it take to make it to the PGA Tour? Join us as Adam Long shares his ongoing journey over the last 5 years to present day as a professional golfer striving to reach the ultimate goal of playing (and winning) on the PGA Tour!

Adam narrowly missed being in the top 25 money earners on the Web.com Tour, which would have secured his card to play in the PGA Tour for the 2015-2016 season.  He has very high hopes for this upcoming season.  In this interview, Adam shares some of his highest and lowest moments on the course, as well as some of the key lessons that have gotten him this far on his journey.

Adam Long's Background

Born in Louisiana
Grew up playing golf in St. Louis, MO
He had a highly decorated amateur career, ranked as high as 8th in the Golfweek Junior Golf Rankings
He played four years at Duke University, compiling quite a resume for both his golf game and academics.
After graduating, he wasted no time, deciding to turn pro in June of 2010, and had relatively quick success with solid finishes on the eGolf and Hooters tour, including a win in 2011.
Adam played his way onto the Web.com tour this past year, with highlights including T2, 4th place, T13, and T18 finish.
Adam finished #41 on the money list at the end of the regular season, just 16 spots away from earning his PGA card.

Highlights from this Episode

He also walks us through 2 of the most gratifying moments in his golf career:
Adam walks us through his LOWEST MOMENT on the golf course which was several missed cuts right before US Open Qualifying, and the lessons he learned from this experience
Adam walks us through some of the most important moments that he feels have shifted his career:

When his college coach told him he had a chance to go pro and needed to shift his focus
When he started working with mental game coach Bob Rotella and started working on his philosophy of "who Adam Long is as a golfer" as opposed to focusing simply on each round of golf.

He has full status on the Web.com, which means for the 1st time, he DOES NOT have to go through Web.com Tour Qualifying School ("Q-School").
Adam explains what his upcoming year looks like as far as the tour and his status are concerned.
Adam Explains to us in plain english how the end of the season of the Web.com Tour works, including the top 25 $ earners, the Tour Championship Events, and what each guy is playing for at the end of the year. (Finally someone that can relay this in layman's terms!)

A tournament that he was called up to play in his Freshman year at Duke
This past year when he placed T2 at the United Leasing Championship (Here's a video of Adam from this event courtesy of PGATour.com)

We discuss what Adam feels are the strongest parts of his game and what he's looking forward to improving on this upcoming year.
Adam has a unique perspective on working with his swing coach.  Unlike most golfers that are always searching for what needs to be fixed, Adam and his coach, Brian Fogt, prefer to "check up" on his swing to make sure nothing crazy us going on, but they don't try to "fix" something everytime they are working together.

311: Adam Grant | Give and Take  

"Whatever kind of giving you're focused on, it starts with asking the question: What do other people need?" - Adam Grant

The Cheat Sheet: The different categories of giving value. (8:40) How to give to someone you don't know - the RIGHT way. (11:20) What are stage gates and how should you use them? (15:30) How to avoid social capital suicide. (23:50) The power of powerless communication: Abe Lincoln showed us how. (31:50) Chunker vs Sprinkler (42:00) And so much more...

The latest buzz in the online marketing and entrepreneurial world is to give value and the profits will come back to you. Is this really true and does it work when it comes to networking and expanding our social circles? Adam Grant has the answer to that question and he's our guest for episode 311.

Adam is the author of "Give and Take" and an organization psychologist professor at Wharton School of Business. He was also named by Malcolm Gladwell as one of his favorite social science writers. In this show, Adam and I talk about how to spot takers and protect yourself against them, how to use the 5 minute favor to expand your social circle in a favorable way and give yourself greater happiness in the process, and lots more!

More About This Show:

Most of us probably believe we're givers, or at the very least we want to be giving to our social circles. But chances are some of us simply aren't giving. Adam Grant helps us rectify that in this episode. One of the best ways to be a giver or an even better giver than you are now is to simply ask what others need. If you know what they need, you can find a way to give it to them.

Or you can approach the person you want to give to by sharing what you're good at and how you could contribute to them. For example, if you are an encyclopedia of research studies let them know that and tell them they can contact you if they are looking for a particular study or you can help them find a study that supports a concept they're exploring.

If you're looking for a way to connect with that person before approaching them, there's an app called Refresh which will gather all their social media information and collect it in one place for you. You can look for things or people or connections you have in common and use that as a talking point to establish common ground. Once you've connected and have bonded, you can go deeper into the relationship to find out what their greatest needs are and how you can fulfill those needs.

And if one of those needs you fulfill involves introducing another person, Adam and I discuss the proper steps to doing so with a double opt-in introduction. The double opt-in helps you avoid the embarrassment of introducing two people who already know each other or two people who actually can't help each other for reasons you aren't aware of.

Though we discuss many more powerful topics, one of the last I want to highlight here is powerless communication. This is the art and craft of giving some of the power in a connection to the other person, thereby showing you are willing to give for the greater good and you aren't there simply to take advantage of the situation. Adam shares how Abraham Lincoln used this technique so effectively.

There's plenty more content Adam and I discuss in this show. He was a great guest with loads of concrete giving tips for better networking and a better life.  I enjoyed having him with us, I hope you dig this episode too.  Thanks for listening and we'll see you next time.

Drew and Adam bond over the way deaths and earthquakes occur during the same hours in the middle of the night/early morning. Adam brings up his answering machine message from his angry neighbor demanding a working phone number, unaware Adam simply turns off his ringer, even in 97. This is a newly recovered Kevin Tape, it's been lost to the archive for over 17 years, Adam also tells the story of his grandfather's death from his dad's side of the family something not shared again until Adam's KLSX Morning Radio Show for Thanksgiving in 2007. Adam shares a different anecdote about his grandma lamenting the loss of her husband, this is not the infamous "KY" comments that have yet to take place. Drew's reaction is priceless and very 1997 and he reminds Adam that Lotzi was the one to cure him of his bedwetting which was recently covered on The Adam and Dr. Drew Show #208 released Jan 2015. Adam gets emotional and Drew talks him through it, Adam would cry on air at least two more times between now and 2005.

Ep. 154 - Adam Grant: What’s Next - How to Turn Your Idea into a (Successful) Business  

I don’t want to be afraid. But I am. I’ll explain why. But first, I want to introduce you to Adam Grant. He has the solution to my problem… And maybe your problem, too. Adam is the youngest tenured and highest-ranking professor at the famed business university The Wharton School, a writer for The New York Times, and the New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success. In researching his new book, Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World, Adam met with today's most successful and innovative entrepreneurs.  Why? To get answers. “We have a ton of guidance on how to generate ideas,” he says. But what about after? What do you do? Originals teaches you how to bring new ideas into the world. And really, there’s no grand theory on how to be "original." But there are tricks… And Adam discovered some patterns among today’s most successful entrepreneurs. He spoke to Google’s co-founder, Larry Page, Warby Parker’s founders and CEOs, and thought leaders like the renowned writer, Malcolm Gladwell. From Gladwell, Adam learned the most powerful technique to induce creativity. From Larry Page and the Warby Parker guys, he found a common thread. Hint: don’t quit your day job. But, more on that later. I’m going to tell you the top three things to be “an original.” They might surprise you. But first, I want you to know what else you’ll get from today’s podcast: How to get into a flow state (even during tasks you don’t like) [51:32] Should you plan your procrastination? [25:20] The most powerful techniques to immerse yourself and bring creativity into your life(including Malcolm Gladwell’s library trick) [20:06] Why the hell Adam Grant didn’t invest seed money in Warby Parker and become a billionaire [8:38] An ode to the idea muscle: why it’s more important to have quantity over quality ideas [28:19]  Ok so here they are. The top three things to become "an original:" 1) Induce creativity First unlearn. Then learn... We’ve all internalized things we need to question. That’s what adults do. We make up rules and reasons. We draw lines instead of pictures… tell “facts,” not stories. But why can’t we play with our food? Or stand on the counter? Kids think. Kids create. And we can get back to that too. We just have to unlearn. And then re-learn. “This comes back to our idea of broadening your experience and your knowledge,” Adam says. “You need to step outside of your field in order to see what you should be challenging.” Immerse yourself in new domains. Go beyond work… beyond your office… beyond the usual. Personally, I dabble in a lot of things. I play games. I write. I read. I'm involved in lots of businesses. And I recently tried stand-up comedy. “I've just pursued things I'm curious about,” Adam says, “and then unexpectedly, they turn out to have bridges between them.” That’s the key to learning. Do something new. Do a dare of the day. It’s good for your creative health.  2) Don’t quit your day job (yet). Give yourself time to build your business. It worked for me. I tell why in this episode. Listen at [21:31]. And be conservative. It’s one of the best ways to be original. “I was stunned actually,” Adam says. He read this a “nationally represented study of American entrepreneurs.” “People who did what you did, James, and kept their day job are 33% less likely to fail.” 3) Propel your ideas forward Doubting your ideas can be paralyzing, so eliminate self-doubt. According to Adam, a lot of originals said, “Look, you could fail by starting a business that flops or you could fail by not starting a business at all, and I don't want to be in that second category."  Listen at [22:09] to get actionable steps to fight self-doubt.   Listen now. And let’s stop being afraid... Together.

18SP 019: Adam Stevenson |Offseason Practice for the Game and the Body  

Adam Stevenson is a golf pro with a vision.  "Save your golf game and save your life!"  This is the subtitle of his book, and basically the backbone of his teaching.

Adam is not just working on his golfer's swing, he has begun a quest of learning as much about the body and it's function in order to not only make his clients play better, but to live better.

Adam realizes that if the body is not in tune and working at it's best, then the golf game has a lot of potential for improvement.  By working on both, the client wins in more ways than one.

Adam Stevenson's Background

Originally from Canada, but has been living in Denmark for 18years
Has been teaching golf for 10 years
Recently has been focusing a lot on learning more about the body and how it's movements and abilities relate to the golfer and their swing
The off season over in Denmark is a 6 month long "season"
Golf instructor with PGA of Denmark
Plane Truth certified instructor
Background in Stack and Tilt
K-Vest #D certified instructor
TPI Level 3 certified Fitness and Medical

Highlights from this Episode

 "Golfers are athletes"
Making the golfer aware that there is more to their golfswing than ball position and club technology can be a difficult task
Adam makes a point to educate the golfer not just on the swing, but what their body is capable of and not capable of regarding the motion of the swing
By doing this he is able to help the golfer with the root of their issues rather than just provide band aid fixes
The biggest issues Adam finds regarding the body:

Poor Posture
Limited upper spine mobility
