2567: [Part 2] The Meaning of Life is a Ham Sandwich by Mark Manson

Mark Manson shares his thoughts on the meaning of life. This is part 2 of 2. Episode 2567: [Part 2] The Meaning of Life is a Ham Sandwich by Mark Manson Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew. By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well. That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month.

Courtney Carver talks about how to let go of sentimental items Episode 2507: How To Let Go of Sentimental Items by Courtney Carver Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn't matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

This is part 2 of 2.  Episode 2505: [Part 2] The Disease of More by Mark Manson on Benefits of Simple Living Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew. By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well. That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month.

2489: Do You Need Therapy? by Mark Manson

Mark Manson asks if you need therapy. Episode 2489: Do You Need Therapy? by Mark Manson Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew. By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well. That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month. Check out his book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F--- on his site or Amazon.

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares two short posts covering how to stop fear in its tracks and how to answer when creativity calls Episode 2476: 7 Ways to Stop Fear in its Tracks AND When Creativity Calls, Will You Answer? by Katie Ping Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares two short posts covering why being busy is a choice and how to feel wonder at every turn Episode 2413: Why Being Busy is a Choice And I Choose Not to Be AND It’s Possible to Feel Wonder at Every Turn by Katie Ping Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

Episode 2402: A Gentle Warrior's Guide to Healthy Travel by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn't matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

2399: An Excerpt From the Book "Pancakes For Roger" by Susan Combs

Susan Combs shares an excerpt from her book Pancakes For Roger Episode 2399: An Excerpt From the Book "Pancakes For Roger" by Susan Combs on Slaying Personal Dragons In a world that can feel shaky and uncertain at times, one fact holds true: nobody gets anywhere alone. Susan L. Combs has learned that lesson many times over, and she’s held onto the advice that has guided her on her journey—one that’s taken her from a tiny town in Missouri to the hustle of New York City. She’s faced immense grief and fostered immense growth, personally and professionally. Through it all, she leaned on guidance from mentors in her life. One of those key mentors was her father, Roger. He wore many hats: as a judge, a veteran and Two-Star Major General, a leader in his community, a loving husband . . . and, as we learn in this book, one heck of a dad. Though he passed away in 2018, his legacy lives on in "Pancakes for Roger" and beyond, as a portion of the proceeds from this book benefits the University of Missouri School of Law Veterans Clinic in his honor. In "Pancakes for Roger"—a series of quick, straightforward snapshots delivered with no fluff and a whole lot of heart—Susan offers lessons from Roger and others so that you can lean on them, too, as you set out to slay your own dragons.

Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism reminds you that your belongings should help you live in the present Episode 2395: Your Belongings Should Help You Live in the Present by Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism Rachel started her journey to minimalism in 2008, struggling with depression and horribly embarrassed by the messy state of her home. Her goal for pursuing minimalism was to find contentment and joy in spending time with family and being able to focus on Christ. What she found was that minimalism wasn’t the answer. But it is a tool to use to help you focus on what’s important. Her mission is to help others turn their home into their own personal oasis. Having found an immense amount of freedom with minimalism, it's her goal to share the methods of simplifying and the tools that she had to rely on (and still does!) to maintain a home that is easy to take care of and a joyful space to live.

She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares two short posts covering how to find freedom from the opinions of others and what to do when fear is keeping us stuck Episode 2329: How to Find Freedom From the Opinions of Others AND What to Do When Fear is Keeping us Stuck by Katie Ping Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

Courtney Carver of Be More With Less talks about the value of letting go Episode 2323: If You Want to Be Light You Have to Let Go by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less on What's Weighing You Down Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health. She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage. Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

2313: The Questions to Ask When You're Decluttering by Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism on Mindful Decluttering

Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism tells you the questions to ask yourself when you're decluttering Episode 2313: The Questions to Ask When You're Decluttering by Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism on Mindful Decluttering Rachel started her journey to minimalism in 2008, struggling with depression and horribly embarrassed by the messy state of her home. Her goal for pursuing minimalism was to find contentment and joy in spending time with family and being able to focus on Christ. What she found was that minimalism wasn’t the answer. But it is a tool to use to help you focus on what’s important. Her mission is to help others turn their home into their own personal oasis. Having found an immense amount of freedom with minimalism, it's her goal to share the methods of simplifying and the tools that she had to rely on (and still does!) to maintain a home that is easy to take care of and a joyful space to live.

Episode 2312: [Part 2] Your Two Minds by Mark Manson on The Thinking Mind & Meditative Practice Mark Manson was a full-time professional dating coach for men from 2008 until 2011. Sick of the industry, he wrote his first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, and changed the name and focus of his business to address broader self-development topics for men. The book took off, selling tens of thousands of copies. As he branched out into deeper issues of masculinity, self-worth, and the changing cultural landscape, the site grew. By 2013, he had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives he had gathered while living in various countries around the world. Despite the fact that the business was still directed at men, thousands of women began reading and asking for advice as well. That same year, he made the leap to his own site and domain, broadening the demographics of his audience. The site exploded, garnering millions of views each month.

Katie Ping of More Of What Matters Blog shares two short posts covering how to confront fear and the lessons that dogs teach us about life Episode 2295: Confronting Fear by Calling It Out AND The Lessons Dogs Teach Us About Life by Katie Ping of MoreOfWhatMattersBlog Katie Ping is a small-town writer, yogi, and mama who values simplicity. She spent decades of her life people-pleasing and drowning in guilt and shame over parts of her that she thought were unworthy. By her late-20s, she found herself passionless and riddled with anxiety - and she knew she needed a change. Instead of creating a multi-layered plan on how to attain more peace, she started small - with a walking meditation practice. Those 15 minutes of strolling in silence down a tree-lined residential street led her to where she is today - facing her fears of imperfection and doing it anyway.

2271: 3 Steps to Take When Decluttering Sentimental Items by Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism
768
Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism tells us 3 steps to take when decluttering sentimental items Episode 2271: 3 Steps to Take When Decluttering Sentimental Items by Rachel Jones of Nourishing Minimalism Rachel started her journey to minimalism in 2008, struggling with depression and horribly embarrassed by the messy state of her home. Her goal for pursuing minimalism was to find contentment and joy in spending time with family and being able to focus on Christ. What she found was that minimalism wasn’t the answer. But it is a tool to use to help you focus on what’s important. Her mission is to help others turn their home into their own personal oasis. Having found an immense amount of freedom with minimalism, it's her goal to share the methods of simplifying and the tools that she had to rely on (and still does!) to maintain a home that is easy to take care of and a joyful space to live.
