Do you feel like you are on autopilot? Just going through the motions-like life is just a blur of commuting to work, calendar event and obligations. If so then listen up. I recently interviewed Chris Bartz-Brown the author of a new book entitled ” Wake Up-A Handbook to Living in the Here and Now“.
This is not only a fantastic book, but the book design is exceptional, it really is a handbook–please feel free to take notes on the pages provided. Chris has provided 54 playful strategies to help the readers snap out of autopilot. We discussed several playful strategies in our interview together, example “Kill your Television”. As Chris states, a little television is not a bad thing, but a lot of television wastes our time and our life. What would be the payoff for watching less television? What else could you do to entertain yourself, read a book, take a walk, exercise, meditate? All the options seem better than watching television.
How about the idea of noticing what you notice. Most of us are in such a hurry that we infrequently notice the little things in life. How about carrying a pen or pencil with some paper and just start writing down what you notice? These things could be people, conversations, buildings, articles or a fleeting glance from someone in a passing bus. It doesn’t matter what you find interesting; it only matters that you notice it. So what is the payoff of this new activity, becoming more sensitized to the world in which we live and as a result enjoying a heightened sense of connectedness and vitality.
Chris’s new book “Wake-Up” is a great easy read with lots of strategies for changing your habits and behavior for the better. If you want to learn more about the book and Chris please click here to be directed to Chris’s website.
I hope you enjoy this lively interview with author Chris Bartz-Brown.
If you are interested in your personal growth, you have to be interested in what makes you tick regarding setting goals. Have you ever wondered why you achieve some goals, and others just seem like they are miles away and you may never get there?
There are obviously lots of physiological reasons for this , and in a recent interview with Edwin Locke Phd about his book “New Developments in Goal Setting and Task Performance” he unlocks many of the reasons from our personal motivations, to our values and the role of the subconscious mind. Edwin Locke PhD is the de facto resource when it comes to research on goal setting. My interview with him was one of the most enlightening interviews of the over 575 interviews I have completed.
During our interview we covered topics regarding the commitment to our goals, the role that feedback plays in achievement of our goals and the simple truths about self-regulation in goal setting. If you are at all interested in improving your game when it comes to setting and achieving goals then you will want to listen to my interview with Edwin Locke Phd.
You can learn more about Dr. Locke and his writings by clicking here to be directed to his website. Please note the book is really a textbook and might be a bit heavy for casual reading, but if you are really into figuring out the pitfalls and “why” of goal setting them purchase the book.
