Today with Jonathan Hebert, Senior Project Manager for OSP International and a very good friend of mine.    Cornelius Fichtner: Hello Jonathan. Thank you very much for joining us today. Jonathan Hebert: Hello Cornelius, thanks for interviewing me. Cornelius Fichtner: Hey, first of all, congratulations on passing the PMI-ACP® Exam.   Jonathan Hebert: Thank you very much. Cornelius Fichtner: When exactly did you pass? It was just a little while ago, right? Jonathan Hebert: It was. It was on March 13th of this year. Cornelius Fichtner: Excellent. Excellent. Before we move on, at this point we have to include a disclaimer and that disclaimer is all about the fact that both you and I, we work for OSP International and among other things, our company offers PMI‑ACP® Exam training and also a simulator and you’ve used both in your exam preparation and will probably mention these two products during the interview as well. We just wanted to make everybody aware of this situation that we are actually colleagues here. So first things first, if you have to do this again, what would you do differently? Jonathan Hebert: I would set aside more time for preparation and I would probably time it or not so much was going on in my life. I was renovating our kitchen, I had plenty of work to do, there were many things that were in play and looking back, I probably could have scheduled things more beneficial for me. [laughs]  Cornelius Fichtner: And when you said you would schedule more time, you mean longer duration or instead of an hour a day, two hours a day, how do you mean? Jonathan Hebert: Instead of how I did it, I would actually choose a different time when I have less competing things going on in my life that didn’t allow me to focus as much as I feel is necessary to prepare and pass in the exam.   Cornelius Fichtner: OK. The exam that you took is the current exam. Over the years exams change, right now PMI has the exam based on a recommended reading list of about 12 books and we expect this will change sometime in the future and they will move over to an Agile practice guide. However, do you feel that the way you studied is still valid? Even if those listening to this interview in the future, they maybe using different books and maybe even that PMI Agile Practice Guide, a completely different exam content outline, is it still valid in the future, what you’ve done? Jonathan Hebert: I think it is. There are 12 references as you said and I read every one of them back to front. No, that’s ridiculous [laughs]. That’s 4000 pages of text that is over-preparing at the very least. What I did was I was able to find the PMP® Exam prep books that summarized well all 12 books and excerpted the topics from those books that are most important in the exam. So I do feel like the way that I prepared is very applicable in the future and I believe as you do, that there will be some sort of a reference that is very similar to the PMBOK® Guide for PMP for Agile because to read 12 books to cover that amount of material is a little bit much to ask. Cornelius Fichtner: Why exactly did you choose to become PMI-ACP® certified? What was your driver other than me constantly saying, “Hey Jonathan, you’re going to get certified.” [laughs] Jonathan Hebert: There were those reasons. Two reasons: because I needed to get certified in order to fully understand Agile Project Management, practices, as well as be qualified to author questions and review content and that’s from the job perspective but I personally believe and I think most people that do become Agile certified and do study the methodologies, they believe that this is the best approach for knowledge-based work, work that’s complex, it’s fast-moving, it’s volatile, and the kind of work that really dominates our age now which is the information age. I think Agile offers superior Project Management approaches to do that type of work. Cornelius Fichtner: Of course because our work here at the company is Agile-focused for the Agile training, the Agile Simulator that was a clear reason why you did this but you’re also CSM certified, right?   Jonathan Hebert: I am CSM certified. Cornelius Fichtner: Yeah, Certified Scrum Master, yup! Jonathan Hebert: I suggest that for others as well. It does focusing on one of the methodologies, Scrum—and it’s probably one of the more popular methodologies that is used in Agile. Cornelius Fichtner: Did you look at any of the other certifications that are out there—the IPMA offers something, universities… Jonathan Hebert: I didn’t. Actually I pretty much knew that I needed to become Agile PMI-ACP® certified and that was my primary goal, I didn’t look at the other certifications. Cornelius Fichtner: OK. How long did it take you from start to finish? So start being me going for the first time, “Hey Jonathan, you need the certification until you’ve actually passed”. Jonathan Hebert: It took eight months which is relatively short compared to my PMP journey. Cornelius Fichtner: OK. How long was the PMP journey then in comparison? Jonathan Hebert: That was a couple of years actually from knowing I wanted to do it and committing to do it to actually putting the time off aside and accomplishing that goal. Cornelius Fichtner: In other words, your PMI-ACP was a lot more Agile than the PMP? Jonathan Hebert: It was definitely more Agile and in the spirit of Agile, I took a look and there was a retrospective and I improved my approach—one of the tenants of Agile Project Management. Cornelius Fichtner: You started out as a traditional Project Manager and this is also how you and I got to know each other because my wife happened to work at the same company that you worked at and we’re on the same project so we got to know each other back then. How—because you came from the traditional side, how did you then determine that you were actually eligible to take this Agile certification—coming from the traditional side and doing multiple projects? Jonathan Hebert: Fortunately, OSP primarily uses Agile methodologies to manage their projects. Being a Project Manager at OSP, I was using Agile methodologies. I was using the practices, the tools, the techniques and therefore I was qualified based on those Agile projects that I participated in and that I ran in various roles. Cornelius Fichtner: Yeah and that’s actually an important distinction here. This is the Agile certified practitioner, this is not a Project Management certification so you weren’t necessarily labeled as the Project Manager of the project you worked on for us, right? Jonathan Hebert: That’s correct. I played I think three roles. Two primarily—Scrum master and Agile team member on Agile projects where someone else was a Scrum master or product owner and then I stepped in for a product owner occasionally when we didn’t have the product owner but I understood the product owner’s use and is –the acceptance and command of what the customer was looking for and so therefore I played two primary roles—Scrum master and Agile team member and product owner occasionally. Cornelius Fichtner: What was the process like for your application for the ACP exam because I remember vividly when I applied for the PMP that was  a project on its own and the same probably for you, if you compare this to the PMI-ACP® application. Jonathan Hebert: It’s very similar. So you have to establish a certain period of time managing Agile projects when you put together your application, you are asked to provide details about each project, what role you played, what activities were taken part, what activities were important and necessary for you to complete your Agile projects and therefore you should be using terminology that is of Agile Project Management. I see them as very similar. Of course it’s easier to do it the second time. So if you’ve done it for the PMP, you sort of know what to expect and I have a little bit of help because I have a couple of colleagues that already applied and shared their applications with me so I have pretty much a template. Cornelius Fichtner: Yeah and I’m actually going to interview both of those colleagues as well so the listeners can look forward to hearing Yasmin and Starz as well about what they have to say about this. Something absolutely fantastic for my perspective at least for this interview happened to you once you hit submit. You got audited. Jonathan Hebert: Yes, I did. It’s funny. What is fantastic for someone else is not so fantastic for another person. So, like the PMP I thought I would say, I’ll ride through and the audits are a lottery and I didn’t think I’d win the lottery but I won the lottery. Cornelius Fichtner: This time you did and it didn’t go as smoothly as we had hoped actually, right? So, I was the contact person that you have put down on your projects because they were done within our company and so you sent me the package, I did what I had to. I printed everything out, I read it, I verified that all the information was correct then I signed where PMI had me sign and I put all these documents into a sealed envelope and then I mailed that sealed envelope to you overnight so that you could then create a complete package and send that to PMI. What did you do on your side after you gave me the documents that I had to sign for you? Jonathan Hebert: So what I had to do was take the documents myself and actually send them to PMI to be evaluated and to go through the audit process and the audit process took about five days. I was of course expecting that I would pass the audit. Everything that I had put forward was factual and I had a verification from my employer and I provided them all the information that they asked for but what I got back was that my audit information was incomplete and that they needed, in addition to what I provided, they needed again, they needed proof of my education. Part of being able to apply for the exam is that you have obtained a Bachelor’s Degree and a certain number of hours and if you haven’t it’s more hours similar to the PMP and they needed that additional information but it wasn’t made very clear I found out in one of their FAQs. So they asked me for some additional information which I provided but I did not also provide a copy of my degree or a copy of my transcripts initially and that held up the process. Cornelius Fichtner: Alright. Did you have to submit that along with this? Is this normal that you have to send a copy of your degree or was it just in your case that they wanted to see this? Jonathan Hebert: It is normal but isn’t as clear as it could be. In the information that they needed from me I provided all the information that was listed in that section out of the explanation for the audit but it was not obvious to me that I had to again show my degree and I had assumed I wouldn’t have to look in the FAQs to find that out and that they already have that proof since I was Cornelius Fichtner: FTP-certified, right? Jonathan Hebert: Yeah, exactly. So… Cornelius Fichtner: It was the subject back then Jonathan Hebert: Right. So this was a little bit of something that threw me off and then in getting in touch with PMI, there were a couple of hiccups where kind of one hand didn’t know what the other hand… Cornelius Fichtner: On the PMI side?

  • 289: Jonathan David Lewis: Brand vs Wild

    · 00:46:09 · Healthy Wealthy & Smart

    On today’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, I welcome Jonathan David Lewis onto the show to discuss brand survival. Jonathan David Lewis is the author of Brand vs Wild, a Forbes contributor and a brand survival expert at McKee Wallwork + Co. Jonathan’s opinions are highly sought by numerous business and marketing publications, including Forbes, Digiday, and Advertising Age, where he explores the factors of stalled growth and the principles proven to help companies traverse the dangers of the brand wilderness. In this episode, we discuss: -What survival psychology can teach us about growing a business -Why maintaining success requires continual curiosity -Brand differentiation strategies and how to find your niche audience -Brand vs Wild: how to navigate the increasingly harsh business world -And so much more!   Business challenges can create fear, but fear is a primary driver of personal and business growth. Jonathan believes, “Fear is one of those emotions that is fundamental to business and career and life.”   Survival psychology describes three different reactions to adversity: being prepared, becoming paralyzed or panicking. Interestingly, Jonathan describes, “There is very little difference psychologically between a group of survivors who have crashed landed on a mountain or became lost in the desert and a group of business people who are just trying to navigate some sort of unexpected business challenge. We go through the same psychological reaction.”   Being an industry leader breeds complacency and arrogance. Jonathan warns, “One of the biggest enemies of continual learning is success.”   The age of mass marketing is coming to an end. New businesses should seek to be hyper-relevant to a very small tribe. Jonathan reminds us, “It’s okay to be small. It’s okay to be niche.”   For more information on Jonathan: Jonathan David Lewis is the author of Brand vs Wild, a Forbes contributor and a brand survival expert at McKee Wallwork + Co.   As partner and strategy director at MW+C, Jonathan led his firm to be recognized by purveyor Advertising Age as a national leader in branding and marketing, winning the Southwest Small Agency of the Year, national B2B Campaign of the Year, and national Best Places to Work awards.   Jonathan sharpened his skills during the harsh years of the Great Recession, helping brands navigate today’s unforgiving new business paradigms. Jonathan’s opinions are highly sought by numerous business and marketing publications, including Forbes, Digiday, and Advertising Age, where he explores the factors of stalled growth and the principles proven to help companies traverse the dangers of the brand wilderness.   Resources discussed on this show: Brand vs Wild Jonathan David Lewis Twitter McKee Wallwork & Company Jonathan David Lewis Website Survival Psychology by John Leach   Thanks for listening and subscribing to the podcast!

  • " Cinq pièces pour voix et électronique " de Jonathan Bell (Rediffusion intégrale et portrait du compositeur)

    · Alla Breve, l'intégrale

    durée : 00:30:01 - Alla Breve, l'intégrale - par : Anne Montaron - * « _Cinq pièces pour voix et électronique_ » de [**Jonathan Bell**](https://www.babelscores.com/fr/JonathanBell) Sur des poèmes de **Robert Bell** Interprété par l’[**Ensemble De Caelis**](http://www.decaelis.fr/fr/) Rediffusion de la création enregistrée le 6 avril 2012 **Jonathan Bell** a imaginé la musique de son Alla Breve (des miniatures pour voix et électronique) à un moment où il préparait un Doctorat de composition à la Guildhall School of Music and Drama de Londres. Aujourd'hui, **Jonathan Bell** a ce diplôme en poche. Ce premier doctorat a été suivi d'un deuxième au sein de l'IRCAM à Paris, car **Jonathan Bell** appartient à la catégorie des Compositeurs \- Chercheurs ! Le parcours de **Jonathan Bell** a oscillé entre Londres et Paris. Pourquoi Londres ? Parce qu'il souhaitait poursuivre là\-bas son apprentissage de compositeur, en gagnant sa vie comme pianiste au sein d'une compagnie de danse. Il se trouve par ailleurs que **Jonathan Bell** a des racines en Angleterre du côté de son père disparu quand il avait 14 ans, le poète **Robert Bell**, et c'est précisément à ce père qu'il a souhaité rendre hommage seize ans plus tard avec sa suite de miniatures chantées par l'**ensemble De Caelis**. Pour réaliser ce cycle vocal, **Jonathan Bell** est allé puiser dans différents recueils de son père. Une partie d'électronique, très subtile et délicate, se glisse sous les bribes de texte en langue anglaise. L'électronique, c'est évident, contribue au climat onirique, voire hypnotique de la musique de **Jonathan Bell**. Un autre élément participe de cette atmosphère d'étrangeté : la retenue des voix, et surtout l'écriture micro\-tonale. Il faut ajouter un autre trait marquant : les glissements d'un son à un autre, qui rappellent certaines musiques de **Xenakis**, un compositeur très important pour **Jonathan Bell.** Cet Alla Breve fait entendre les voix chantées féminines de l'**Ensemble De Caelis**, mais aussi deux voix parlées masculines ; celle d'un ami **Michael Picknett** et celle de **John Greaves**, auxquelles s'ajoute au début du cycle un poème en langue persane d'**Omar Rayam**, un _éloge de l'ivresse_. Et si un joueur de tar, le luth iranien, apparaît par ailleurs à la fin de ce cycle, c'est parce que **Jonathan Bell** s'est souvenu du lien de son père à la culture persane. Ces cinq pièces ont été une étape important dans les recherches de **Jonathan Bell** autour d'une nouvelle façon de noter la musique et de l'interpréter. le compositeur explore la relation entre les sons produits par les voix en même temps que ces voix reçoivent d'autres sons par le moyen de casques. C'est le principe des audioscores ! (ici les poèmes de **Robert Bell**) > **Programmation musicale** **Toutes les pièces sont de Jonathan Bell** _Archipel_, pour harpe et électronique **Eloise Labaume** (harpe) Festival Manifeste Ircam, juin 2015 _Au commencement_, pour 12 voix et électronique **Ensemble Mangata**, direction **Hernan Alcala** juin 2016 _De Joye Interdict_, pour 5 voix a capella **Ensemble De Caelis**, direction **Hernan Alcala** Commande du Festival d'Île\-de\-France Septembre 2014 _Smartvox_, pour choeur, 5 voix solistes, et électronique **Ensemble De Caelis**, **Schola Cantorum et Choeur de la Cathédrale de Nantes** Direction **Laurence Brisset** et **Êtienne Ferchaud** Commande Festival Musique Sacrée à Nantes Mars 2017 - réalisé par : Françoise Cordey

  • Hvorfor har stadig flere unge behov for sovemedicin?

    · 00:55:00 · 55 minutter

    Nye tal fra Sundhedsdatastyrelsen viser, at stadig flere børn og unge får sovemedicin. Andelen af børn og unge mellem 15 og 24 år, der indløste en recept på sovemedicinen melatonin, steg nemlig med 20% fra 2015 til 2016. Det sker på trods af, at der har været fokus på at nedbringe brugen af melatonin blandt børn og unge. Stigningen er problematisk, mener flere eksperter, som Radio24syv har talt med. Nogle børn og unge med visse diagnoser og sygdomme får melatonin, så de kan falde til ro. Men Sundhedsdatastyrelsens tal viser også, at ca. 25% af de unge får melatonin, selvom de ikke har en diagnose. Melatonin er et søvndyssende hormon, der produceres naturligt i kroppen, men det kan også fås som receptpligtig sovemedicin. I dag undersøger vi, hvorfor stadig flere unge, har behov for sovemedicin. Vi taler med Anders Beich, læge for Dansk Selskab for Almen Medicin, Poul Jørgen Jennum, professor og overlæge ved Dansk Center for Søvnmedicin ved Rigshospitalet, Jon Kristian Lange, specialkonsulent ved Komitéen for Sundhedsoplysning og Flemming Møller Mortensen, sundhedsordfører for Socialdemokratiet. Og så taler vi med to lyttere, som selv har erfaringer med at bruge melatonin. Vært: Claus Cancel

Highlights from this Episode Jonathan starts out by answering the question "How did we get it so wrong for so long?" talking about the idea of calorie counting and the "Eat less, exercise more" philosophy Jonathan explains a few of the analogies in his book that really drive home some of the major concepts that are fundamentally different than what most of us have been taught, like: Our bodies are like a clogged drain Sugar is basically the new cigarette The SANE solution (which is his solution for helping us eat more and exercise less!) Jonathan helps us understand why the concept of preaching moderation, especially in recommended guidelines is so wrong.  You wouldn't suggest someone smoke in moderation, or simply smoke smaller cigarettes, would you?! Jonathan shares with us the keys to eating smarter, SANE foods, and why they create a much more efficient environment in your body that will help you burn more fat, feel much better, and ultimately play a much better game of golf!

  • Jonathan Bailor: How to Eat More, Exercise Less, Lose Weight & Live Better

    · 00:35:02 · 180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions.

    180 Nutrition Our fantastic guest today is the very lively Jonathan Bailor. Jonathan is the author of the NYT best selling book; The Calorie Myth. He exposes the fundamental flaw upon which the diet industry has been built: the “eat less + exercise more = weight loss” equation simply doesn’t add up. In this revolutionary work informed by over 1,300 studies and the new science of fat loss, food, and fitness, Bailor shows us how eating more—of the right kinds of foods—and exercising less—but at a higher intensity—is actually the key to burning fat, healing our hormones, boosting metabolism, and creating long-term weight loss. In This Episode: Why counting calories is outdated and is not the best approach to long-term health Why the body acts like 'kitchen sink' & should be the first thing to address weight loss How to eat more & exercise less for better health Jonathan's favourite & most influential books:  - Antifragile by Nassim Nicholas Taleb  - The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey  - How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie And much much more...   Take the Quiz & Discover Your #1 Health & Weight Loss Road Block Here:  180 Nutrition Quiz   Transcript   Hey, this is Guy Lawrence at 180 Nutrition and welcome to today’s Health Sessions. So, today we’ve got a fantastic guest lined up for you. I know I say that every week, but that’s okay anyway, because we like to think they’re fantastic anyway. He is an internationally recognized wellness expert who specializes in using modern science and technology to simplify health. I know we certainly want to simplify health with our message. Our special guest today is Jonathan Bailor and he’s collaborated now with top scientists for more than 10 years to analyze and apply over 1300 studies, which led him to write; which became a New York Times bestselling book called “The Calorie Myth” which came out, I think, at the beginning of 2014. Now, “The Calorie Myth” comes with the slogan, “How to Eat More, Exercise Less, Lose Weight and Live Better.” And I think after all the years that I’ve been doing this, this certainly is a message that I like to push as well. It was great to get Jonathan on today to share his wisdom that he’s learned. And of course it’s, you know, the quality of the food, not the quantity. I certainly don’t count calories any more, that’s for sure, and that’s a big message. But also, on top of that, what Jonathan shares with us is that high-quality foods balance the hormones that regulate our metabolism and what’s behind that. He has a great analogy as well where he talks about the body’s regulatory system becoming, inverted commas, “clogged.” And it prevents us from burning those extra calories and actually, you know, the body running at its full efficiency. So, we get sucked into it and he shares some fantastic bits of wisdom with us for today’s show. So, I have no doubt you’re going to get lots out of it. I also did some mathematics yesterday. Yes, I do get a calculator out every now and then and worked out that somewhere in the world every four minutes, at the moment, somebody’s listening to a 180 Nutrition podcast. I thought that was actually pretty cool and thought I’d share that with you. It keeps inspiring me and spurring me on to do these podcasts more and I truly want to try to get into the top five on iTunes here in Australia, at least, in the health and wellness section by the end of this year. And the reality is, the only way I can do that is with your help. All you need to do is subscribe, hit the five-star and leave us a small review if you’re genuinely enjoying these podcasts and they’re making a big difference to your life. I’ve always pushed for podcasts. They’ve made a huge impact on my life over the years and it’s certainly something I love doing and strive to do even more and continue to get this message out there and simply reach as many people as possible in the way we do it. So, if you could take two minutes and do those things for us, it would be greatly appreciated. Anyway, let’s go on to Jonathan Bailor and you’re going to thoroughly enjoy this. Thanks. Guy Lawrence: Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined with Stuart Cooke. Hey, Stu. Stuart Cooke: Hello, mate. Guy Lawrence: And our awesome guest today is Jonathan Bailor. Jonathan, welcome to the show. Jonathan Bailor: Hey, guys. Thanks for having me. Guy Lawrence: That’s fantastic, mate. We found over the years that this topic of counting calories, weight loss, even exercise, has a great deal of confusion. So, we’re looking forward to getting some clarity and pearls of wisdom from you today for our audience. So … Jonathan Bailor: Well, I hope I provide as much wisdom as I can.

  • How to Unlock Your Best Stride and Avoid the Lifestyle Habits Holding You Back - Jonathan Beverly

    · 00:59:41 · Run to the Top Podcast | The Ultimate Guide to Running

    What if someone told you there is no “correct” stride? That, just like our fingerprints, everyone’s optimal stride is unique to them? While this goes against the grain of what we runners have been taught, Jonathan Beverly has the proof to back it up. The author of a new book called Your Best Stride, Jonathan is a coach, lifetime runner, and expert in running shoes and the running industry. He writes for Runner’s World and Outside Magazine just to name a few, and he also served as editor of Running Times from 2000-2016. Today Jonathan’s going to share with us some shocking information on the myths surrounding running shoes and what constitutes a perfect stride, how to counter those lifestyle habits detrimental to your stride, and how to master the best stride for you and your performance. Here are some of the topics we’ll discuss today:   Jonathan’s new book Your Best Stride Why there is no “correct” stride Stride signature and preferred movement path Why foot strike is overrated The perils of sitting down and other lifestyle habits How to counter the effects of these habits How to avoid “ruts” Universal form cues all runners should know   Questions Jonathan is asked: 3:48 What is your background and how did you become passionate about running? 6:32 What prompted you to start a writing career centered around running? 9:26 Can you tell us about Your Best Stride and what inspired you to write it? 16:03 Why is foot strike overrated and what should runners focus on instead? 19:30 You argue there is no “correct” stride. Why? 22:37 How does sitting down a lot affect stride? What are some other bad lifestyle habits for stride efficiency? 25:42 How does driving, typing, and scrolling through your phone affect posture and arm carriage? 27:27 How can people counter the effects of these lifestyle habits on their strides? 31:07 What areas of the body should runners focus on strengthening most? 38:01 How does switching up terrain and race distance help improve stride and overall performance? 41:53 Should runners switch the types of shoes they run in regularly? 44:05 What are the myths surrounding running shoes? 47:47 What are some universal form cues all runners should follow? 50:37 Is it more important to strengthen our weak spots than it is to try and consciously change our form? 52:01 How should runners determine which shoes are right for them and their bodies? 54:42 What’s next for you? Quotes by Jonathan:   “The kinetic chain starts at the hips, and if your hips are off, then everything else is going to be off. So the focus needs to move up, and [foot strike] is the consequence of an effective stride - it’s not the cause of it. If you try to correct the consequence without addressing the cause, you end up with a mess.” “You can think of your stride like your voice. I’m hearing you talk now and it’s the first time we’ve talked, but the next time I hear you I’ll recognize you. And you shouldn’t sound like me - you should sound like you. You vocal chords are different, the length of your neck is different, the size of your lungs is different - all of those things go into creating your voice. And it’s the same thing with your stride.” “Because we’ve been sitting so long, a lot of us can’t actually [extend our hips] anymore….If we try, it’s sort of like opening a screen door that only has a hinge one way. If you’re pushing it the other way, you’re going to break the door frame.” “[Running drills] aren’t cueing a certain type of stride - they’re just changing the motion, changing the muscle recruitment so that your body starts noticing that ‘oh, if I use the glute instead of the hamstring, we can go easier and faster’.”   Take a Listen on Your Next Run    Want more awesome interviews and advice?

  • TLS #181: The counter-intuitive way to thrive in all areas of life with Jonathan Fields

    · 01:14:23 · The Lively Show

    Today’s Lively Show is a wonderful conversation with author and podcast host, Jonathan Fields. Good Life Project, Jonathan’s podcast, is a wonderful show with incredible guests. And in case you’re interested, I’ve also been fortunate to have been on the show recently talking about masculine and feminine energy as well. In Jonathan’s newest book, How To Live a Good Life, is a deep dive into one of the most profound insights I’ve come across in the 2.5 years I’ve been hosting TLS. In today’s episode, we are going into a wide range of subjects including how to thrive in every area of your life - in a way that seems initially counterintuitive (which is why so many of us, including myself, have fallen into the trap that is in direct contrast to this principle).This episode is perfect for anyone looking to learn about a powerful and simple principle that allows you to thrive in all areas of your life, particularly when you feel burned out.   [Tweet "“You’re a part of something bigger." - @jonathanfields"][Tweet "“Mindfulness really happens not when you sit down to meditate but when you stands up to live." - @jonathanfields"][Tweet "“Pay attention to the way you do things because it matters." - @jonathanfields"][Tweet "“When we belong, everything gets better." - @jonathanfields"][Tweet "“Know yourself and exalt being intentional" - @jonathanfields"] IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT  He discuss what “living a good life” is how important it is to him to be present in the life of his wife and daughter. Jonathan explains his 3 buckets philosophy which is contribution, connection, and vitality. He tells us that Vitality is about optimizing your state of mind and body. Jonathan mentions that cultivating deep and meaningful relationships is important to the connection bucket. He explains how the contribution bucket is all about how you contribute to the world and how that interacts with you and the world as a whole. Jonathan discuss the three basic “laws” or rules of the 3 buckets since they need to be in harmony with each other to be effective. He discusses how cultivating awareness is the metaskill that flips the switch from being reactive to being intentional. Jonathan talks about the difference between “mindful” vs “mindfull.” He’s mentions the four different types of love and that it ok not to have all four types to fill our connection bucket. Jonathan speaks about the power of belonging and why it’s so vital. He describes the contribution bucket and how it’s the work we do in the world, whether or not it’s our job, career or something else. Jonathan goes over the “Ripple Not Thinking Wave” effect. He describes in detail about the word "generative" and it really means the state that everything falls into perfect alignment. Jonathan talks about Seeded Mindfulness Meditation and why it's about allowing and releasing. SHOW NOTESTLS #163: Alignment Before ActionTLS #178: 10 Mindfulness Lessons from a retreat with Eckhart TolleEllen LangerTLS #101: Lewis Howes TLS with  Kristoffer CarterInsight Timer AppThe Good Life Podcast with Milton GlaserTLS #179: with Adam BraunAbraham Hicks  LISTEN TO THE SHOW

Building his own businesses is what was next in line for Jonathan. He goes on to tell me that it was right around his late teens that he started asking himself “what are we all really here for?” and it was within the answer, that he knew he would go on to serve himself and his community on how to live a GOOD LIFE.

Steering towards a higher power to hear him out and be with him along the way, he tells us when this theory first started to set in. “ After becoming a Dad, I started asking more questions and exploring ancient philosophy and tradition. It’s built on the concept of one-ness.” With his new-found higher power and his wife by his side, Jonathan created the Good Life Project, a media and education venture. “Of course there are sucky days, but if you were to stop me on any given day and ask me “Are you living a good life?” my answer would be, OH YEAH!” In This Episode You Will Learn About: Living the good life Serving your community Choosing things that light you up Your potential Risk tolerant Your higher power Resources: How To Live a Good Life by: Jonathan Fields Just RELEASED!!

  • Drukferier for unge

    · 00:54:58 · 55 minutter

    I dag sender 55 minutter fra det, der engang var det vildeste sted i Nordeuropa, Løkken. For 10-15 år siden var denne lille by party-centralen i Danmark - i hvert fald ifølge de festmatadorer, som stod for at drive koncepter som blandt andet hed “Fucking Fed Ferie”. De levede af at lave drukferier til de unge, hvor de unge sov på en campingplads i et lille telt, hvor de sad og drak udenfor og om aftenen tog på pubcrawls på byens barer og diskoteker. Til tider var det så voldsomt, at man talte om, at de unge terroriserede byen. Efter sådan en nat med pubcrawls, kampdruk og skumfest, kan man nok godt forestille sig, hvor grimt, der har set ud i gågaden. I dag diskuterer vi, om der skal være plads til sådan nogle drukferier for unge i Danmark, eller om vi skal gøre det bedste for at lukke ned for dem. Vært: Tinne Hjersing Knudsen

  • Baglandet: Hjemmelavede våben og duft af syrener 1:3 2016-05-31

    · Baglandet

    Reportage fra en sikret døgninstitution for unge. En samling af konfiskerede, hjemmelavede våben ligger på et bord. Glasskår med håndtag, spidse, bøjede gafler. De er lavet af unge mellem 12 og 17 år, der har boet på Stevnsfortet, en slags varetægtsfængsel for unge på Sydsjælland. De er del af "den hårde kerne", der har begået så farlig kriminalitet, at de bor på otte sikrede døgninstitutioner rundt om i landet med tremmer for vinduerne og aflåst dør om natten. Det er dem, politikerne taler om, når de taler om at unge kriminelle skal straffes hårdere. Baglandet følger hverdagen på stevnsfortet, hvor 40 ansatte passer på maks 15 unge. Målet er at få de unge til, for måske første gang i deres liv, at stole på en voksen, mens de venter på en dom. Reportere: Karen Straarup og Anne Pilegaard Petersen. Vært: Emil Rothstein-Christensen.
