Dismantling Your Fears for Empowered Running with Boston Marathon Champion Jack Fultz  

It was the hottest Boston Marathon in history.


Heat waves blurred the horizon as Jack and his competition toed the starting line, their uniforms already drenched in sweat. It was over 100 degrees, and spectators lined the course with sprinklers and garden hoses at the ready to cool off passing runners.


40 percent of the field dropped out that year, but, through smart racing and pure grit, Jack gradually worked his way into the lead and then into history as he crossed the line the champion of the 1976 Boston Marathon with a finishing time of 2:20:19.


The race was nicknamed - appropriately enough - the “Run for the Hoses”, and it was one of the biggest defining moments of Jack’s life.


“One” being the operative word.


Jack went on to record a personal best of 2:11:17 at Boston in 1978 and qualified for 3 consecutive Olympic Trials in the marathon in 1972, 1976, and 1980.


Jack also taught sports psychology at Tufts for 26 years and now works as a training consultant to the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge through which he has raised over $30 million for breast cancer research.


Jack has no shortage of insight when it comes to mental game, and he loves sharing that insight to help other runners.


Listen in as Jack discusses his tips and tricks for setting goals, bouncing back after bad races, and finding happiness in the process.



Here are some of the topics we’ll discuss today:


How Jack started running Jack’s progression from underdog to Boston Marathon winner The 1976 Boston Marathon Jack’s background in sports psychology Why it’s important to differentiate “victory” and “success” Jack’s advice on setting goals How to bounce back from a bad race


Questions Jack is asked:


3:55 How was your experience at ZAP Fitness?

6:15 How did you first get into running and what really sparked your passion for the sport?

19:45 What were the conditions for 1976 Boston Marathon?

21:13 Did your strategy change going into that race?

26:17 What were the last 8 miles of that race like for you?

31:58 How did it feel having the crowd cheering for you as you won the Boston Marathon?

37:03 What do you advise runners to do in regards to setting goals or multiple goals per race?

46:02 Why should we differentiate “Victory” from “Success”?

49:20 How do you advise runners bounce back from a ‘bad’ race?

57:13 How much time did you give yourself to ‘grieve’ over a disappointing race?

1:00:31 What’s next for you?


Quotes by Jack:


“I just almost had to keep pinching myself. ‘Is this really happening? I’m really winning the Boston Marathon!’”

“Too much focus on the outcome will contaminate your performance….The process by which - if we attend to that, then the outcome becomes a byproduct of that process, and we have much more control over the process as opposed to the actual outcome.”

“Part of the human condition is that we tend to confirm our greatest fears to ourselves, and if our greatest fear is to lose a race, we increase the likelihood of that happening by whatever means.”

“Having a secondary goal to fall back on when we know the first one is gone - that can help keep your feet in the fire. If somebody goes to the starting line of...a marathon...wanting to qualify for Boston, and now their splits are telling them that’s not going to happen. You don’t want to just throw the whole thing out and find yourself giving up, and now you take nothing away from the race other than beating up on yourself….Have a secondary goal going in that you can fall back on.”

“Victory is purely defined by the results, and success can be defined by an internal measure of what you did against what you felt you had to give.”

“It’s running smart first, and tough second, and taking your last effective steps at the finish line and crossing the finish line knowing that no matter how else you may have executed the race, you probably could not have run any faster.”

Five Minute Thursday's - Highlights from Jack Canfield  

I recently had the honor of interviewing Jack Canfield one-on-one for an hour.  I have to tell you it was one the most inspiring interviews I have done to date.  For those of you who don’t know Jack Canfield, he is one of the most successful authors and success coaches of our time.  He known world-wide for his Chicken Soup for the Soul Series and his Success Principles Series.  His books have reached the lives of over 100 million readers and his inspiration is reaching more people every day.


Before I did this interview, I only knew Jack Canfield as the successful person he is today.  I have often heard the quote: “When you see a successful person, we usually only see the tip of the iceberg.  We usually don’t see all the hardships, failures, and challenges these people have gone through in their lives to get where they are today.”  After spending an hour with Jack, I can tell you I was shocked to hear about his challenging childhood with alcoholic parents, the number of times he was rejected for “Chicken Soup for the Soul” (144 rejections), and that he earned a C+ in writing at Harvard.


Below are just few takeaways I learned from spending just 60 minutes with Jack Canfield



Jack had a very difficult childhood raised by a father who was an alcoholic. The cool thing about Jack Canfield is that he used his childhood as an example of what he didn't want to be as an adult. The main point is we have people in or society that live in two camps.


Camp #1- Those of us who leverage challenging times to fuel our future success.


Camp #2- Those of us who use our backgrounds for excuses as to why we are not successful and never will be.


So my question to you guys is: “WHAT CAMP DO YOU LIVE IN?”


If you are in camp #2:  Congrats because you have made an awesome choice on the path to an empowering life versus a victim mentality life. If you are in camp #1:  it’s time to re-evaluate your life and ask yourself better questions. If you are in camp one...go back and listen to Episode 28 with Navy Seal Commander Mark Divine on HOW TO CREATE AN UNBEATABLE MIND. That episode will give you a solid foundation on how to forge mental toughness and become resilient.



Jack got a “C+” in writing at Harvard and was always told he was an "average writer.”  Jack is now one of the most successful authors of our time. Had he listened to his professors at Harvard and didn't move forward with his passion to tell stories, our generation would not know the Jack Canfield we know today and he would have never had such a positive impact on the world. S


So, my question to you is: “WHAT HAVE OTHER PEOPLE TOLD YOU ABOUT YOUR SKILL OR PASSION THAT YOU HAVE BOUGHT INTO?”  What if for a minute you no longer bought into those labels?  What if you decided to step into your greatness?  What would be the worst that could happen?  I grantee 2 things are certain:


 If you failed you would be no worse off than you are right now.


If you decided to pursue your dream, whether you failed or succeeded, you would not live a life of "I wish". Pay Flynn has a great quote that really hits this home which is..."I would rather have a life of "oh-wells and not a life of I wish I would haves.”



Jack was rejected by 144 publishers for his first “Chicken Soup for the Soul” Book. Let that sink in for a second...144 rejections. How would you feel about your purpose/passion if you were rejected 5 times, 10 times, 50 times, or even 100 times? What if Jack Would have thrown in the towel at the 143rd rejection?  The cool thing that Jack Canfield mentioned is that he would have self-published no matter what. It's empowering to have a backup plan and know you will move forward even if it's on your own when no one else believes in you.  The lesson here is to fail forward and not give up. Each time we fail there is a life lesson, we learn, and we move forward.


Guys, thank you for tuning in to our new segment - Five Minute Thursday's. The goal of this mid-week podcast is to give you the powerhouse cliff notes of the week, to kick start your weekend, and ultimately to empower your life. Guys make sure you head to to get several free resources. Also make sure you grab a copy of “The Dads Edge” on Amazon. It's an easy read and has become a bestseller.

046 America's #1 Success Coach's Principles with Jack Canfield  

I am SO honored to be interviewing another one of my absolute biggest mentors and daily inspiration, Jack Canfield. As the beloved originator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series, Jack Canfield fostered the emergence of inspirational anthologies as a genre - and watched it grow to a billion dollar market.

As the driving force behind the development and delivery of more than 123 million books sold through the Chicken Soup for the Soul® franchise (and over 500 million copies in print worldwide), Jack Canfield is uniquely qualified to talk about success.

Behind the empire Time Magazine called the "Publishing Phenomenon of the Decade" is America's leading expert in creating peak performance for entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, managers, sales professionals, corporate employees, and educators. Over the last 30 years, his compelling message, empowering energy and personable coaching style has helped hundreds of thousands of individuals achieve their dreams. Affectionately known as "America's #1 Success Coach," Jack has studied and reported on what makes successful people different. He knows what motivates them, what drives them, and what inspires them. He brings this critical insight to countless audiences internationally---sharing his success strategies in the media, with companies, universities and professional associations. Jack is a Harvard graduate with a Master's Degree in psychological education and one of the earliest champions of peak-performance, developing specific methodologies and results-oriented activities to help people take on greater challenges and produce breakthrough results.

His proven formula for success reached global acclaim with his most recent National Bestseller, The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be.

Jack opens up with a little hint of his personal life and a list of grateful’s. From his health, to family and wife, three year old nephew and his amazing business team that guides his dreams daily. Continuing to follow his life’s work is what he intends to do, no matter his age.

“I am grateful for my health. I’ll be 72 in August and I feel like I'm 50!”

In the midst of writing his next book (along with all the other incredible things he brings to us,) Jack reminds us that everything we do in life, at the end of the day, steams from love. It is truly the ultimate choice, love or fear?

“When we come from fear we end up with yucky, messy results. When we come from love everything seems to work.”

Finding and following your true, loving purpose is the main topic of todays show with Jack. As quoted from Stephen Covey, “You don’t want to get to the top of the ladder and realize the ladder was leaving against the wrong wall.”

The path you choose in life should steam from your passions and what brings you pure happiness, so that you may then be a service to others. Many have chosen based on ego, or money and appearance, but no amount of money could amount to the feeling of bliss.

There is no big or small purpose or goal. there is just different. Each job, each path we take is what makes us unique and able to serve the world through authenticity.

Not only is Jack goal orientated and focus driven, but he is also extremely spiritual. He shares with us how meditation has become a large part of his daily routine and how it even brought him the name of one of his biggest accomplishments to this day, Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Today, he encourages us to take risks. Examine your fears, weigh out the options and trust in the higher power that everything will fall into place they way it was meant to.

Episode #7: Was Walter Sickert Actually Jack the Ripper? PART TWO  

Back in 2002, I remember one day when I was browsing a new releases table at my local bookstore and a particular book caught my eye. What I noticed first was the dust jacket- its background was an old, handwritten letter, across which a huge font,  in bright red letters, the color of blood, trumpeted  the author’s name- Patricia Cornwell-across the cover.  It seemed like yet another crime novel, one among hundreds. And so, I moved on, until I saw the subtitle of the book:

Jack the Ripper: Case Closed.

Now, I am as intrigued by unsolved crimes as much as the next person, so I cracked the  cover of the book and began to read the dust jacket’s accompanying description. In it, the author released a bombshell statement:  she had purportedly solved the mystery of Jack the Ripper’s identity, which  had evaded researchers, historians, and police for over one hundred years. And to those of us in the art world, her suspected killer hit a bit too close to home. A painter-- and a well-known and much praised one, at that-- had committed the famous murders, she wrote.

Jack the Ripper, she said, was the English painter Walter Sickert.

In this second half of our special two-part Halloween episode, we are going to get into the nitty-gritty details of the Sickert-as-Ripper theory. If you’re just tuning in to the ArtCurious Podcast for the first time, please stop and listen to Part One of this Halloween segment first and get the backstory on Jack the Ripper’s crimes, as well as a brief biography of Walter Sickert.

Episode #6: Was Walter Sickert Actually Jack the Ripper? PART ONE  

I've always thought that the expansion of 19th century London must have been a real sight to behold. It was increasing by leaps and bounds, becoming, by the mid-point of the century, the largest city in the world. London in the 19th century had political and religious freedoms, making it a stable alternative to many other countries in the world and it was flooded with immigrants. Its economy was robust, and London’s positioning as a port city only served to enhance its commitment to industries like trade, shipping, and fishing. As such, London became the place, along with America, for people the world over to begin their fresh starts.

But that isn't to say that 19th century London was all roses. The vast expansion the city experienced had some pretty terrible downsides. It was overcrowded, and the infrastructure was not able to keep up with the massive influx of people from all over England and the world. On the periphery of the city especially, congested slums started popping up to hold those with little money and means. Thousands of people, slammed together, in a place whose water and sewer systems just couldn't do enough to be salubrious. So disease was rampant and morale was low. And then, of course, there was the crime.

Much was made of the so-called “criminal classes” at this time. The Victorians were terrified of the lower-classes, particularly down-and-out men living in the crowded outskirts of the city who, they thought, were lurking in the shadows, just waiting for the opportunity to arise for a well-timed theft, brawl, or even worse. Life, for most, was hard. But in 1888, Londoners clamoring for a bit of excitement to spice up the drudgery of their unhealthy lives got far more than they bargained for. They got weeks of abject terror surrounding a madman who slaughtered women in London’s East End… Who was never identified or caught. And more than 100 years later, we are still no closer to really identifying one of the most terrible killers of all time.

Or are we?

In this first half of our special two-part Halloween episode, we are going to delve into a theory that identifies Jack the Ripper as the English painter Walter Sickert. And come back next week to hear the second half of the show and see images of Sickert's work.

BBC History of Jack the Ripper

How Jack the Ripper Worked

FBI Case File on Jack the Ripper

Pro-rysk röst i Konflikt och superamerikansk valbevakning  

Kritik mot att P1-programmet Konflikt lät en Putinkramande debattör sprida sin ryska propaganda. Hur mycket USA-val tål Sverige? Jack Werner i Facebooks frysbox. Konflikt i P1 bjöd in känd pro-rysk debattör När Sveriges Radios fördjupande samhällsprogram Konflikt för en vecka sedan ville teckna en bild över den ekonomiska krisen och militära upprustningen i Ryssland stod många på gästlistan. Både forskare och det som vi journalister lite slarvigt brukar benämna som vanligt folk. I det här fallet ryssar boende i Sverige som ska företräda mannen eller kvinnan på gatorna i Moskva. I studion satt bland annat Oleg Mezjuev, en känd Putinvän som i Sverige både skrivit för den pro-ryska nyhetssajten Sputnik och driver den anti-Ukrainska rörelsen anti-euromaidan. Men hur tydliga var redaktionen med att berätta det här? Reporter Jonna Westin. Superduper-bevakning av USA-val Det kan knappt undgått någon levande varelse i vårt avlånga land att det i tisdags var primärval i ett antal amerikanska delstater. Så gott som samtliga nationella mediehus slog hårt på stora trumman med superlive och extrasändningar om supertisdagens superavgörande superval.Enligt statistik vi på Medierna fått har bevakningen av årets amerikanska primärval varit mer omfattande än både under 2008 och 2012. Det har skrivit 173 procent fler artiklar om Donald Trump än om Mitt Romney 2012. Och då ska vi minnas att det redan 2012 skrevs 88 procent fler artiklar om Mitt Romney än om 2008 års republikanska huvudkandidat John McCain. Att amerikanska presidentval är viktiga även i och för Sverige är självklart. Men frågan är hur proportionerlig bevakningen är? Och lär vi oss något utöver kandidaternas hårfrisyrer, smutsiga attacker och färgsprakande hockeyhallskonvent? Mattias Pleijel är reporter. Uppdatering lördag 20160305. I en första version som sändes lördag 11.03 i P1 sägs felaktigt att vi i det här reportaget besöker Expressens tv-redaktion. Det stämmer inte. Vi besöker Aftonbladets tv-redaktion. Vi ber om ursäkt för felaktigheten. I den version som sänds söndag 18.00 i P1 samt i Podd-versionen är uppgifterna korrigerade. Facebook under press om hat och hot Det stormar just nu kring Facebook. När grundaren och VD:n Marc Zuckerberg besökte Berlin förra veckan blev han under ett publikt möte pressad om hatet som frodas på sajten. I Sverige fick i veckan en Facebook-nyhet hos Svenska Dagbladet stort genomslag. Det var vår krönikör här på Medierna i P1, Jack Werner, som kunde visa hur hat och hot fick ligga kvar på sajten – trots anmälningar.Men några svar från Facebook fick inte Svenska Dagbladet. När det kom fram att det var just Jack Werner som skulle ställa frågorna blev det stopp. Han är inte välkommen då han enligt Facebooks nordiska kommunikationschef, Peter Münster, är för påläst. Johan Cedersjö träffade Jack Werner i veckan.

Exklusiv-Interview mit NFL-Star Björn Werner  

Frohe Ostern zusammen! Passend zu den Feiertagen gibt’s auch bei uns heute ein Oster-Special: Wir haben ein exklusives Skype-Interview mit unserem deutschen NFL-Star Björn Werner geführt. In unserem Studio in der Hamburger Volksbank-Arena begrüßt euch heute Kucze. Remo ist aus Berlin zugeschaltet und hat ein Auge auf eure Live-Kommentare bei Facebook und YouTube. Denn die Hauptperson ist selbstverständlich Björn Werner. Der Defensive End wurde im Draft 2013 an insgesamt 24. Stelle von den Indianapolis Colts gezogen. So früh wie vor und nach ihm kein anderer Deutscher! Im Januar 2017 hat der heute 26-Jährige seine NFL-Karriere wegen anhaltender Knie-Probleme aber beendet. Wie geht’s ihm jetzt? Bereut er seinen Entschluss? Nachdem Björn Werner diese persönlichen Fragen zum Einstieg beantwortet, spielen wir mit ihm unsere beliebte Rubrik „In and out“. Natürlich sprechen wir mit Werner danach auch über die anderen deutschen NFL-Stars Kasim Edebali und Moritz Boehringer. Und wir lassen den heute 26-Jährigen darauf zurückblicken, wie sein Draft 2013 war und was er sich vom diesjährigen Draft erwartet. Zum Abschluss sprechen wir mit Björn Werner noch über dessen neues Projekt „Gridiron Imports“. Mit dem will es der gebürtige Berliner zukünftigen deutschen Football-Talenten leichter machen, den Sprung in die USA zu bewältigen. Kommenden Montag gibt’s dann wieder eine neue Folge der „Footballerei“. Wie immer live um 19 Uhr auf Facebook und YouTube. So wie wenig später als Podcast auf SoundCloud, iTunes, Deezer, Stitcher & Co.

How to Accelerate Personal Achievement and Life Fulfillment with Jack Canfield  

Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul as well as a new book, 30 Day Sobriety Solution, gives a fresh perspective on this sometimes difficult balance.

Jack Canfield on Resiliency

So, maybe you didn’t have the best childhood, or maybe you grew up with every privilege under the sun. It really doesn’t matter. It’s really all about how you come out of the situation and how you respond to the situations you’ve been through. Through this, you provide your children with the ultimate example of resiliency and success.

“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life’s longing for itself. They come through you, but not from you. And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.”- Khalil Gibran.

Wow. Such an impactful statement, but one that might be hard to put into practice. We want so much for our children to have the best of everything that we sometimes lose sight of our role in their lives. Sometimes we forget that our children are their own person, not a smaller replica of ourselves. In not understanding this difference, we may try to put our children in activities or situations we wish we would have had for our own childhoods.

Jack Canfield on Intention

But, it’s also about having the intention and willingness to put in the time. Jack had regrets and guilt in parenting, but he was able overcome those feelings because he knew he had to be the best example as a father. He knew he had to love each of his children individually. There’s a lesson here: you’ve got to love each child the way they want to receive it, not the way you want to give it. Accept your child for the person they are, not for whom you want them to be. Sometimes we try to turn our children into the children we wished we could have been or have the opportunities that will make us look like good parents. You have children; you are not your children. You have to let them be themselves.

Correcting Behavior and Praise

When children make mistakes, instead of constantly correcting them for what they have done wrong, point out what they have done right. Leave it there. Then, when they attempt the same task again, praise what they did the time before and then give a suggestion regarding the part of the task they need to correct. If you have young children, be careful with how you approach moments where they fail and succeed. Between the ages of 3-8, Jack says, research indicates that their self esteem is at its most vulnerable. Granted, during their entire childhood children are building their self worth, but it is these years that seem the most critical.

Jack Canfield and The 30 Day Sobriety Solution

But being the best parent for our children stems, as we’ve seen so many times on the GDP, from how we respond to challenges in our daily lives. Jack approaches this in his new book, 30 Day Sobriety Solution. You may not be an alcoholic, but Jack says in his book that even when we are casual, social drinkers, we still may be using that glass of wine or a beer to “wind down” or “take the edge off.” You may even find that when you have that drink, you aren’t really present for those you love: you’d rather fall asleep instead of reading your child that bed time story after the simple glass of wine (or two). Maybe you question how you’ll enjoy a night out without that one drink, or how you’ll get through that social work setting without the beer. But as Jack points out and his book addresses, there may be some underlying factors we may be covering with that drink.

It's about being your BEST SELF

It’s really about being your best self in all aspects of your life-putting down a drink may just be one of them. Jack’s advice? Be as committed to being a great dad as you are to your job, your hobby or other things you find important. If you want something different, you have to do something different. The choices you make and actions you take today determine your outcomes for tomorrow.

The Jack Carson Show - Jack Prepares For A Trip (06-25-47)  

Jack Prepares For A Trip (Aired June 25, 1947)
Jack Carson, because of his size — 6 ft 2 in (1.9 m) and 220 lb (100 kg), had his first stage appearance as Hercules in a college production. During a performance, he tripped and took half the set with him. A college friend, Dave Willock, thought it was so funny he persuaded Carson to team with him in a vaudeville act—Willock and Carson—and a new career began. This piece of unplanned business would be typical of the sorts of things that tended to happen to Carson during some of his film roles. During the 1930s, as vaudeville went into decline owing to increased competition from radio and the movies, Willock and Carson sought work in Hollywood, initially landing bit roles at RKO. THIS EPISODE: June 25, 1947. "Jack Prepares For A Trip" - CBS network. Sponsored by: Campbell's Soup, Franco-American Spaghetti. The last show of the series. Jack and Tugwell are planning to return east on the Superchief. Unbilled guest Bob Crosby pays a visit.

Del, Bob and Jack sing a "duet" Campbell's soup commercial to the tune of, "Ta-Ra-Ta-Boom-Dee-Ay." Jack ends the show sing, "Guess I'll Go Back Home This Summer." Jack Carson, Arthur Treacher, Freddy Martin and His Orchestra, Dave Willock, Del Sharbutt (announcer), Irene Ryan, Frank Sinatra, Gene Conklin (whistling "Hora Staccato"). 29:41.

Spring-Heeled Jack  

Legend: In 1837, someone or something leapt into history in nine foot bounds, assaulting women and men, breathing fire and tearing at their clothes. What exactly was Spring-Heeled Jack? Background: Tonight we're diving into the history of Spring-Heeled Jack. We're going to take a look at one of the most detailed research papers ever done on him and try to figure out just who or what he might have been. Join us as we unravel the various sightings and take a look at all the plausible explanations that have been put forth over the years and then you can decide for yourself if Spring-Heeled Jack was super natural or a cunning hoax followed by copycat hoaxing for over 150 years. Tonight's Quote: "He also has spring-heeled or india-rubber soled boots, for no man living could leap so lightly, and, I might say, fly across the ground in the manner he did last night.’ ~ GHR Davidson (Greater London Citizen, 1872) If you can't click on these links, visit our website.  Mike Dash Mike's Definitive Paper on Spring-Heeled Jack Spring-Heeled Jack on Wikipedia Was Mass Hysteria Responsible for Jack? A Recent Case of Mass Hysteria You Might Remember from the News The Wikipedia Entry on Steampunk and it's Anachronism's as Mentioned by Forrest Spiritualism, an Influence on the Zeitgeist and Mindset of the Time The Industrial Revolution, Another Possible Influence on the Minds of Witnesses The Red Barn Murder The Incredible Mystery of the Coral Castle A Gutenberg Link to a 1903 Book Detailing A Spring-Heeled Jack Assault (scroll to page 27 as annotated in the right column) Final Observations:  Even if some of these sightings can be explained as exaggerated or explainable by other means, what is at the root of what witnesses first saw all of those years ago that could jump over nine feet in the air? Perhaps that first sighting or the first few were the only real sightings and if so what was it? I lean towards a mechanical contraption of some kind, although I can't imagine it's design and Forrest leans in the direction of something super natural.

Hyper Sales Growth with Jack Daly  | Episode 228  

In this episode well-known sales expert Jack Daly joins us for a second time to reveal more insights behind his career and book, Hyper Sales Growth. Jack brings 20 plus years of field proven experience from a starting base with the CPA firm Arthur Andersen to the CEO level of several national companies. Jack has participated at the senior executive level on six de novo businesses, two of which he has subsequently sold to the Wall Street firms of Solomon Brothers and First Boston. As the head of sales, Jack has led sales forces numbering in the thousands, operating out of hundreds of offices nationwide. The goal of this interview is to provide you with more insights into the lessons Jack teaches from his book, speeches, and experience.

About Jack Daly:

“I am a serial entrepreneur, started selling at the age of seven, built my first company when I was 12 years old, and by 13 I had five employees and kept 70% of the money. This is when I realized I wanted to be an entrepreneur when I grew up. I went to school and got formally educated in understanding how the numbers worked because one of the failings that entrepreneurs make is they are good at bringing business in and developing business but they are not as good with the number side. I then went on a journey that included taking a blank sheet of paper, six different times and sketching out a business and built six companies into national firms. About 20 years ago I was tired of doing what I was doing and was financially capable of early retirement. After retirement I got into a speaking business and fell in love with helping sales people, sales managers, business owners, and entrepreneurs scale their business and their income.” – Jack Daly

012: Shozan Jack Haubner  


This week on The One You Feed we have Shozan Jack Haubner.

Shozan Jack Haubner is the author of the wonderful memoir Zen Confidential: Confessions of A Wayward Monk. We loved this book. It was poignant, insightful and absolutely hilarious. With a foreword written by, Leonard Cohen (The Guest We Want The Most), we should have known it would be great.

Jack has also won a Pushcart Prize and been featured in the Best Buddhist Writing Series. His humorous essays have appeared in Tricycle, Utne Reader, BuddhaDharma, Huffington Post, Shambhala Sun, Spirituality & Health, and the Sun. A former screenwriter and standup comic, he moved to a Zen Buddhist monastery in the early aughts. He was drawn to the rigors of Zen practice, the deep insight of the tradition, and the fact that Zen monks do not have to refrain from cursing or drinking alcohol. A year into his life as a full-time Zen monk he discovered that Buddhism is fundamentally about "no self." He is still wondering if an exception can be made in his case.

 In This Interview Jack and I Discuss... The One You Feed parable. His interpretation of The Middle Way in Buddhism. Our shadow side. How the problem and the solution are one. How the people in our lives are not a hindrance to awakening, they are our teachers. The role of humor in living a good life. How we turn ourselves into constant self improvement projects and the problems with that. How meditation helps us to know ourselves better. The life lessons of working in a monastery kitchen.

Faktafejd i opinionstexter och hästsektens Jerring-kupp  

Opinionsjournalistik och fakta. Vi nagelfar en artikel om ett Sverige på väg att förlisa. Vidare om att staten nu börjar granska fri press. Krönika av Jack Werner och om hästsektens Jerring-kupp. Faktafejd i opinionstexter  Opinionstexter, krönikor och ledare, skiljer ju sig från redaktionellt nyhetsmaterial då dom är till för att föra fram åsikter, inte fakta. Ledarskribenten till skillnad från nyhetsreportern berättar inte vad som har hänt, utan hur vi ska tolka det som har hänt.Men idag hittar man ofta referenser till faktauppgifter även i opinionstexter. I en välspridd ledarartikel från Svenska Dagbladet, listades nyligen så många som 13 illavarslande påståenden om hur Sverige befinner sig i kris. Texten har rubriken "Det osänkbara landet" och den kläs med en bild av Titanic för att illustrera hur vårt land är på väg mot skeppsbrott.På nyhetsmaterial har vi högt ställda krav på att faktauppgifter är redovisade på ett relevant och sakligt sätt. Men hur är det då, när faktauppgifter används i opinionstexter där dom ju ska stödja en tes. Hur mycket får man man vrida och vända för att få verkligheten att passa sina argument?Reporter: Erik Petersson Granskningsnämnden jagar kommersiell pressVem granskar egentligen medier? Ja, vi såklart som gör det här programmet, men sen finns det ju ett antal instanser till. Enkelt uppdelat kan vi säga att Granskningsnämnden håller koll på radio och TV och Allmänhetens pressombudsman kontrollerar så att den kommersiella pressen följer dom pressetiska reglerna.Men den här uppdelningen, den är numera i gungning. För Granskningsnämnden, som ju är statlig, har nyligen börjat fälla även dagstidningar.Dagens Nyheter, som exempel, åkte nyligen på pisk från nämnden för att ett webb-TV-inslag innehöll ett otillbörligt gynnande av ett kommersiellt intresse.Att det blivit så här, det handlar om en invecklad juridisk historia. Och flera har i veckan påtalat sitt missnöje med att staten nu utökar sin kontrollverksamhet.Reporter: Johan Cedersjö Jack Werner: Forskare och journalister - hjälps åt!Få har väl missat det snart en månad långa bråket om avsaknaden av forskningscred i SVT-dokumentären Kvinnorna på Fröken Frimans tid. I veckan fick frågan nytt syre, efter att ministern för högre utbildning, Helene Hellmark Knutsson, gav sig in i debatten och sade att SVT borde ha refererat bättre.Det här har fått vår krönikör Jack Werner att fundera över det ömsesidiga beroendet mellan journalister och forskare. Och han har ett förslag på något som kanske kan vara en gemensam konstruktiv väg framåt.Hästfolket slår tillbaka ”Svenska folket” har ställts mot ”hästfolket” när journalister, krönikörer och tyckare förfasat sig över att ryttaren och OS-silvermedaljören Peder Fredricson med stor röstmarginal i veckan tog hem Radiosportens Jerringpris.”Skräll” eller till och med ”skuperskräll” flashades det från landets sportredaktioner. Ja, med undantag då för Göteborgs-Posten som var så trigger happy att dom flashade att golfaren, och förhandsfavoriten Henrik Stenson, hade vunnit.Men samtidigt, i en annan filterbubbla, var det här resultatet inte särskilt oväntat. För bland ”hästfolket” och i ridsportens egna medier är Peder Fredricson en stor hjälte, och det hade laddats ordentligt inför måndagens gala.Det här fick vår hästintresserade, men ej jerringröstande, producent Therese Rosenvinge att fråga sig om veckans alla skräll- och kupprubriker kanske snarare är ett uttryck för hur radarn hos dom stora sportredaktionerna än en gång missar vad som är stort inom en av landets mest populära sporter.Reporter: Therese Rosenvinge
