• 87: What Do YOU Suck At?

    · 00:14:53 · The School of Self-Mastery: Business, Money, Life

    What do you suck at? Back in 2012 or something ancient like that, Danielle LaPorte wrote her own post listing what she sucks at. She says that by listing your shortcomings, you give yourself permission to pursue your genius. So many of us women try to be the best at everything. But, many times we just naturally suck at it, and/or loathe it all together. Let’s let go of the shame, guilt and embarrasment. Stop apologizing for it once and for all. So, it’s my turn to list some things I absolutely suck at. Here they are: I suck at my inbox. I suck at asking for help. I suck at JUST watching tv. I do 10 million things while I watch. I’m suck at sucking up. I such at checking voicemail and answering my phone. I suck at slowing down.    I suck at having compassion for people who have excuses. I suck at house cleaning.  I suck at keeping in touch.  The point of this exercise is to notice where you have tension around being lame at something. The things on your “I suck at…” list are the things that have bothered you frequently or deeply for a long time. You have fought against them, felt less than because of them, and tried to cover up for them. No more of that!  So, what do you suck at?   

  • Cameron Herold on How To Conduct A Meeting So It Doesn’t Suck - Episode #276

    · 00:17:45 · The Less Doing Podcast with Ari Meisel: The Best Life Hacks And Productivity Tips For Less Doing, More Living

    Everyone in business is will need to conduct a meeting at some point. When that time comes, you want to do it well, right? Ari and Nick’s guest on this episode is Cameron Herold, author of “Meetings Suck.” He’s on the show to talk specifically about how to conduct meetings in a way that makes them beneficial to everyone involved. In fact, Cameron says that you want to conduct your meetings in a way that people are actually eager to come. How can that happen? You can find out on this episode. Do you know how to conduct a meeting for your team well?  When Cameron Herold first came up with the idea for his book, “Meetings Suck” he was chatting with one of his peers who was bemoaning the meetings he had to conduct. When Cameron asked him if he’d ever been taught how to conduct an effective meeting, his friend said, “No.” That was the starting point and the book is the result. “Meetings Suck” serves as a primer on what meetings are for, how they should be planned, the best format and structure for meetings, and ground rules for participation. You’ll find Cameron’s insights into effective meetings very helpful, so be sure you listen.  Do your meetings suck or do you suck at running meetings? Most meetings drag on and on simply because the person conducting the meeting doesn’t know what they are doing. They wrongly believe that they are supposed to let everyone voice their opinion, allow for comments about everything, and be careful not to hurt anyone’s feelings. Cameron Herold says that’s the best way to frustrate everyone in the company and make attendance at meetings as much fun a root canal. You can hear some actionable, practical tips from Cameron about running effective meetings, on this episode.  “Sorry, I’m  late” means, “I’m selfish and don’t value your time.” ~ Cameron Herold  Every company or team needs to have ground rules for their meetings - and they need to be widely and clearly communicated. One of the most important ground rules is that you don’t show up late. Cameron Herold says that showing up late says, “I am selfish and I don’t value the time of the other people who are attending this meeting.” If you’ll take the time to hear what Cameron has to say about team culture as it pertains to meetings, you’ll discover some of the missing pieces that can make your meetings more effective and enjoyable for your team. How to best conduct meetings for remote teams.  It’s more and more common for companies (like the Leverage Team, for example) to work remotely all across the globe. That makes in-person meetings an impossibility most of the time. So what are some good alternatives and how should they be used most effectively? On this episode of The Leverage Podcast, Ari and Nick chat with Cameron Herold about meetings for remote teams and find out that most of the principles that should be applied to in-person meetings are even more important when it comes to video or phone meetings for remote teams. You’ll want to hear this one. Outline of This Episode  [0:03] Introduction of Cameron Herold, COO of 1-800-Got-Junk.

  • 088: Why You Suck at Your Job

    · 00:31:22 · Young Hustlers

    There are 80 million Millennials out there and no, not all are lazy and entitled. There are plenty who want true freedom, prefer entrepreneurship to the 9 to 5 grind and are hungry for mentors who give them the real deal. Grant Cardone and his millennial protégé, Jarrod Glandt target the under 35 crowd with the tips and insights they need to succeed in any economic climate. Between the loose laid back banter and the frequent references to Jay Z, Kanye, Led Zeppelin music and other pop culture millennial viewers consider Grant their “millennial mentor” and can’t get enough of Grant and Jarrod’s straight up no BS advice. Find a way to shorten the on-ramp to your dreams. Today we’re talking about why you suck at your job. Most people think, “I’m okay at my job,” but the reality is you suck at your job and likely fall into one of these categories. Groups of Workers That Suck at Their Job: 1. You Suck: You’re underperforming, missing your targets; constantly making excuses, constantly changing jobs 2. Average Zone: People who are in the middle, average levels of activity 3. Top Producer: Constantly operating at less than your potential, but higher than those around you, so you get comfortable The One Group That Doesn’t Suck: 4. The Unicorns: You have an insatiable appetite for success. You understand your potential and you are in an all out sprint, all the time. Steve Jobs, Bob Duggan, Grant Cardone… they are unicorns. When these people tell others their dreams, those who hear them think they are crazy. That’s what you want. Jarrod realizes he is in the “Suck” category because he knows he has a higher potential than what he works to every day. He knows he wants to be on like a light bulb, pushing all the time, and learning everything he can from Grant Cardone. How do you go from $0.80/share to $80/share? Bob Duggan says, “You have to work backwards from where you want to be. You have to break everything down into little chunks. And then focus attention and intention into a little chunk.” When someone asks you what your goals are, you must not hesitate with your answer. Tips to Not Suck: 1. Understand that everyone sucks, except the unicorns 2. Write down your dream income and act like you earn it today 3. Work like you have your dream job 4. You have to sit down and have that uncomfortable conversation with yourself

  • 124 – SUCK IT UP

    · 00:08:56 · Being A Better Man

    Today I want to talk about the term, to “suck it up”. We have all heard it a million times and we all know, because of the context it is used in, what it means. To suck it up, is to endure some physical, mental, or emotional hardship without whining or complaining right? Coaches use this term all the time…probably more than any body. When an athlete gets fatigued and his performance starts to fade the coach will yell at him to suck it up. Which means the athlete is supposed to ignore the pain and the fatigue, summon up a little extra strength and continue executing the task, whatever it is. The term suck it up is most often used in situations associated with some kind of strenuous performance, but now its use has spread into every walk of life, we see it most often when we are faced with having to make a decision between two crappy things.

    Karen’s Wild Idea: To share bold, brave, wild stories, both her own and by others through books and essays with the world. Also, to embrace surfing at an older age, a sport that’s taught her why it’s so great to suck at something. Karen Rinaldi is a writer, publisher, and the creator of Harper Wave, an imprint of Harper Collins that has published the work of three past guests: Jaimal Yogis, Mark Lukach and Steph Jagger. Karen has also published books by authors like Dave Asprey of the Bulletproof Coffee movement, Dr. Gundry of The Plant Paradox, and Tony Horton of P90X, to name a few. In addition to her literary life, Karen is also a surfer. She started at age 40, and recently wrote an essay in the New York Times that every surf writer’s mom sent them (including my own) titled, “It’s Great to Suck at Something.” I loved her story, and all of her essays I’ve read. I also don’t have a lot of mentors that are females, writers, publishers, and surfers, so when I find someone like Karen, I have to share her knowledge.  Karen talks about her perspective on surfing, why it’s important to suck at something, the difference between a good adventure and a great story, how to get published, and the books you should be reading. Listen to this episode if:  You suck at surfing (or anything, really). You like trying new things, no matter how good you think you’ll be. You’re an avid reader.

    · 00:43:55 · BUILD Series

    Denis Leary’s first book, "Why We Suck," published in 2008, was a bestseller and has over 400,000 copies in print. Now, in his new book, Leary turns his power of observation and sardonic wit to the current state of America. "Why We Don't Suck" refutes the current highly partisan Right Wing Nut Job versus Left Wing Snowflake approach to American politics that leaves no gray areas in between. Leading a new protest movement called Gray Lives Matter, the book takes equal-opportunity aim at the screaming heads we see arguing every night on CNN and Fox’s Fair and Balanced Republican Report. With a devoted mission to Make America Laugh Again, Leary tackles the topics we all hold close to our American hearts: Twitter, Instagram and the seemingly endless search for fame and diet vodka.
