Closing the semester strong through reflection
24:37

Ep #30 - In this week's episode we discuss closing out the semester through reflection. 

You're wrapping up the semester and it's time to say goodbye to your friends, classmates, dorm, greek house, maybe the professors, and the campus as a whole.

What will you do to signify the end of this portion of your journey? Put some effort into taking stock of the pros and cons of this semester so you can figure out where you would like to do it better next term. 

How to end a semester strong:

- how will you remember it?
- taking time to remember everything you liked and didn't like about this semester will become great notes going into the next semester so you know where you can better focus your energy and where you feel comfortable.
- will you journal? audio recordings? video recordings?

What do you need to wrap up before it's over?

How will you say goodbye to the campus?

Maximize your success when preparing and studying for finals
31:34

Ep #29 - In this weeks episode we discuss prepping for the finals and end of term exams.

It is imperative you take the time to really understand the workload & flow:

- accomplishing things with higher efficiency when you have an outline, schedule, and workflow chart

**Pomodoro Technique**

- how do you want to study?
- small chunks, medium chunks, long chunks
- super huge chunks will kill the drive to keep going and halt memory absorption of the material

Understand the parameters of the work needing to get done so you have an idea of how to break it up and schedule it.

 - Create your own study guide.
 - Attend the review session.
 - Create a study schedule - and follow it. (gym time story
 - Get creative with study aids. (Read aloud, record yourself explaining it to yourself, flashcards, note cards, etc)
 - Prioritize your study time.
 - Remove all distractions and avoid multitasking.

Study for the style of the exam.

  • Multiple-choice: know definitions and concepts.
  • Essay exams: focus on understanding the concepts presented and have examples to use.)

Pace yourself.

  • Make sure you stay focused and don’t burn yourself out. Stay away from the dreaded all-nighter through pacing. You can easily do this by starting early, creating a study schedule, and taking breaks frequently.

Teach classmates.

  • Learning by teaching is a method that really works! If you work with a study buddy or group and explain concepts to each another, you're re-learning the material all over again. It's a great way to reinforce what you've learned.

I love this method and use it in my podcasts and Facebook and Instagram lives.

Brain food is real.

  • Eat healthily and drink plenty of water to keep your brain firing on all cylinders.

****GET PLENTY OF REST AND SLEEP!!!***

Thriving through the emotions of going home for the holidays
30:41

Ep #28 - In this week's episode we discuss going home for Thanksgiving, and soon Christmas, and how to best handle, cope, and thrive with the emotions that present themselves during this loving, yet often stressful, time of the year.

You have changed, grown, learned new things - and this can butt heads with the "old way" that awaits you back home. It is imperative that you both: share what you have learned and understand those back home have not experienced what you have over the last semester, year, etc.

Do you want to be right, or do you want to connect? How you discuss your new ideas, behaviors, beliefs, values, and attitudes will speak volumes on how growth-minded you truly are and your willingness to meet your relatives and friends where they are at in their lives.

You have been attending and living in a place of upward movement and (hopefully) growth-minded and open-minded people. This has not changed the people back home, nor has it changed the environment you came from. How you present yourself to them will go far in how easily they can adjust and learn from this "new you."

Home for the holidays:

  • you go from freedom to having parents around again
    • rules
    • curfew
    • behavior
    • habits
    • attitude

Your parents have gotten used to a new norm

  • empty nest
  • noise level
  • food consumption
  • cleanliness

Is your mindset holding you back?
35:32

Ep #27 - In this week's episode we will be talking about limiting beliefs, limiting mindset, and fixed mindset. For you longtime listeners, you will be familiar with my thoughts on this topic. For you newbies, this is a great way to learn how I use positive inner language and a growth mindset to push myself to heights unimaginable just a few years ago - and in most cases, just a few months or weeks ago.

I will cover:

Why is identifying a limiting mindset important?
What is a limiting mindset?
How to identify a limiting mindset?
What if you can't get out of your limiting mindset? (Which itself is a limiting belief.)

Understanding the Importance of making the change, gaining the Confidence to know how to make the change, and determining your Readiness to make the change are crucial in your longterm success - and that's what I will help you discover about yourself in this episode.

Four mistakes to make if you wanna live in fear and not be yourself.
35:18

Ep #26 - In this weeks episode I take a comedic spin on how not to discover who it is you are in this world. Growing up can be confusing and it's not helped by all the judging we do to ourselves and to others. Make these four mistakes and you are guaranteed to not live your best life and to wake up one day and wonder how you became a person you didn't want to be.

Ignore self discovery in favor of conformity.

Ignore moral, ethical, and integrity based decision making in favor of doing what ever you want in order to crush the opposition and always get ahead.

Only do what you are already comfortable doing.

Stress out and freak out all the time.

Have these behaviors and you will not live your best life - just saying.

Create your own career path in life
32:27

Ep #25 - In this episode, I will discuss "flipping the script" that the education system has raised you in so you can all take control of your career path and become the best version of yourself.

Go check out Ted Talk - Flip the Script -Blake Mallen to gain perspective on the script the education system has raised us under and to better understand why it is imperative you take control of your own journey.

Are you a "Traditionalist," a "Rebel," or a "Creator?"

There is a script - first is was to raise farmers then it was to raise factory workers. This script doesn't work in our society anymore and our education system hasn't developed a new script. Well, in a way, it is developing a service industry workforce and that is not enough to bring our society closer to the "American Dream."

Experiencing everything versus knowing when you have found completion
32:39

Ep #24 - In today's episode we discuss experiencing life and knowing when you are done experiencing something.

You want to experience everything college has to offer - that is the essence of college and on a broader scale - life. There are a variety of experiences we can have with our lives. Doing the same thing, all the time limits you and definitely keeps you in your comfort zone. 

When you change you have two valid, real experiences - that of doing it and that of not doing it - and you can always go back.

- know when to step into something new so you can gain that experience
- know when to say, "I have experienced this enough."

Knowing when to quit something is as important as experiencing something. It's in that "knowing" it has been experienced to it's fullest that you can say goodbye to it.

What are you done doing? What are you fulfilled with? Sugar, changing jobs, dating, managing addictions, etc.

What have you always wanted to try? to do?

Make a choice for you and not against you.
You are not missing out on anything if you decide you are done and complete with that.

There is an openness you can have or a closed-ness, a toward vs away energy.

Lists of: Physical and personal

**Do more**
Make a list of things you want to do more

- be on time
- be a person of your word

**Done with**
Make a list of things you don't like the effect of or the experience of:

- A list of the things you have done; you want to be complete with...

- procrastinating
- perfectionism
- drinking
- drugs
- overeating
- oversleeping
- clothes to tight
- dieting all the time

What is the point of all of this? What is the point of your life?

If your life is whatever you want it to be what do you want it to be?

The roommate situation: Friends vs Friendly
31:03

Ep 23 - In this episode, we discuss roommates and communication. Roommates are not required to be friends, but you are required to be friendly to one another. Learning this skill will pay dividends throughout your life as there will often be scenarios in which you have little control over who you are working with or who lives around you. Hopefully, you have control over who lives with you as move through college and on into your "real-world" life, but that's not always the situation either.

Heed these tips and strategies for a comfortable home environment.

  1. Your ability to communicate with your roommate(s) will be directly proportionate to how good of friends or how friendly you can and will be with them.
  2. You likely have only lived with family members so living with a relative stranger is going to be very different.
  3. If you choose to live in a city you will likely have roommates or a partner living with you most of your life - learning to communicate with maturity is essential in creating a happy, safe home environment.

Keys to remember:

  • You have to want to get along
  • Roommates are not required to be friends but are required to be friendly
  • Follow the uncomfortable rule

My top needs from a roommate

  • lock the door and windows
  • don't bring untrustworthy people/thieves into my house
  • don't use my things without permission
  • don't eat my food
  • clean up after yourself
  • respect quiet hours
  • the kitchen and bathroom are communal - respect that
  • lock the door and windows

Beat overwhelm by simplifying your time management
27:08

Ep #22 - In this weeks episode We discuss the time management strategy first introduced in episode #2 with guest Thom Rigsby.

Time management shouldn't take up so much time that you find yourself confused and overwhelmed by your scheduling and to-do lists. Utilize the simplicity of this method and win every day.

Time management books over-complicate things and can leave you just as baffled as to how to manage a busy schedule as you were before you learned their system.

In Thom's system, you simplify your to-do list to have just the 5 major moves that are most important for that day so you can go to bed feeling and knowing the day was a win.

What are your 5 major moves?

80% of the results come from 20% of the effort.

Priority
Focus
Focus
Focus
Focus

One of these items is going to produce 80% of the results - that becomes the Priority.

Implement this into your life and do it this way for a month and tell me you are winning every day and accomplishing more!

Embrace problems and obstacles for ultimate success
34:04

Ep #21 - In this weeks show we discuss problems and how realizing they are a non-stop occurrence in our lives actually frees us up from the stress they induce because we expect them, instead of fear them.

Problems are opportunities to learn and grow. Running from the negative thoughts and feelings blocks your ability to experience the event and thus not learn what you need to in order to mature and evolve. Realize that problems are forever. You will never eliminate all the problems in your life. It is impossible. 

Get a good grade and your friend gets a bad grade - how will you handle your contrary emotions?

Get a raise and now you pay higher taxes. Get a new car and now you have greater expenses. Win the game and now you have pressure to win the next game. Get good grades and now you pressure yourself to get better.

No matter the situation you experience it will bring with it a whole new set of "problem" that are really just life situations you now get to experience so you can continue to grow.

Ask yourself these questions when a problem arises or you feel overwhelmed by college and life.

1. What is a problem you want to eliminate forever? Why?
2. If you were able to eliminate this problem, what new problem would take its place that you don't have now?
3. What do you think about the concept that problems and negative emotions are forever?
4. As a human being that has both positive and negative emotions, what do
you think about the idea that the good balance is half and half without any
buffering or false pleasures?
5. I believe that most of our dreams are on the other side of discomfort. What is your relationship with discomfort?
6. When we see problems as an unwanted or wrong part of life, we end up not growing. Why do you think this is?
7. If you looked forward to negative emotion and planned on problems, how
would your life be different?
8. Can you think of a problem you have had that ultimately created an equal
amount of positive contrast? Write it here.
9. Here's an idea...The bigger your dreams, the more problems you will have. The more problems you have, the more opportunity you have for the balance of positive emotion. Thoughts?

The above questions come from Brooke Castillo's Self-Coaching Scholars program I am in.

To drink or not to drink - it's more than just that question
30:44

Ep #20 - You are an accumulation of your habits: daily, weekly, monthly, semesterly, yearly, etc. What are you doing to decompress so you aren't relying on alcohol? Being in a small town is no better an excuse than being in a big city is - it's your mindset.

 

- You are an accumulation of your habits: daily, weekly, monthly, semesterly

- what are you doing to decompress so you are not relying on alcohol?
- plays, meetings, groups, organizations, movie nights, gym, reading, meditation, praying
- Being in a small town is not an excuse

- communicate with your best friends and family members

- friendship/inner circle

1. Taking responsibility for your words and actions
2. Not blaming others for the above
3. understanding what it is you are actually feeling and why you are saying it.

Self-Coaching model:

Circumstance/Event/External Force ---> triggers
Thoughts ---> cause
Feelings --->drive
Actions ---> create
Outcome ---> results provide evidence you will use next time that Circumstance/Event/External Force comes at you again - which will trigger this loop and recreate the behavior to the point it becomes a habituated response and slides into the unconscious.

Six human needs:

1. Certainty

2. Uncertainty/Variety

3. Significance

4. Love/Connection

5. Growth

6. Contribution

How your brain rapidly adapts to the new school year.
33:10

Ep #19 - You are building new habits by the 1000s over your first few months of a new semester. Your brain can adapt, learn, and grow in infinite ways and by knowing this you can turn its incredible power in your favor. This isn't the first time you have adapted to a massive amount of new experiences at once. Every new school year brought about these kinds of actions in you. You have a ton of background adapting - so don't let the anxiety monster get to you.

This is how life will be forever. People used to believe that the brain became fixed, could no longer learn new things, after a certain age. Newer research has revealed that the brain never stops changing in response to learning. Neuroplasticity is your brain's ability to adapt and change to anything and everything you experience in life.

It's a wonderful thing, so harness it now and turn your life into a gigantic experiment. It'll make new habit creation a joy and you'll be self-aware enough to know if the habit you are creating will lead you toward success or away from failure.

As always, I am honored you spent your precious time with me!

You can't turn work ethic off and on like a light
31:34

Ep #18 - In this weeks episode we close out the book review and discuss Tenacity.

Choose to show up every day as the best version of yourself. Your attitude, mentality, emotional state - are all choices you get to make every moment, of every day. It's really simple. You have to show up every day and be present in your life.

Some keys to remember and thrive through:

Be where you say you're going to be when you say you're going to be there.

Don't change the way you act to impress others. (unless it is talking loudly to impress others with your stories or chewing with your mouth full - don't do that stuff.)

Don't hide behind the shy armor. 

Don't keep your hand down because you're afraid of the outcome.

Don't be a person you will reflect on one day and regret being.

Be the best version of yourself today.

Strive each morning to be better than you were the day before.

Action steps:

1. Know your why, envision your vision, and determine the outcome you want to achieve.

2. Have flexibility in your approach

3. Pay attention to the journey as it unfolds

4. Learn from each step along the way

5. Evaluate your purpose in going through this experience

6. Be non-judgmental in the way you connect your experiences and points of view to someone else's experiences and points of view.

7. Build a trustworthy social circle around yourself to support you in this endeavor.

8. Re-evaluate your purpose, the benefits, the vision, and your intended outcome regularly.

Move forward with this renewed perspective and review this list regularly.

I am always honored to have your time and ear each week.

Be extremely flexible in college (Hey! Mind outta the gutter;)
31:00

Ep #17 - In this weeks episode we discuss principle # - Flexibility.

No...not that kinda flexibility - this isn't a yoga podcast. LOL

Flexibility is critical because through that pliability you will better overcome challenges, reduce your stress level (when things do go awry,) and ultimately be more successful than others (who are more rigid and set in their ways.) 

Flexibility is the ability to demonstrate a fluid approach to your work, relationships, and life. It is you being able to figure out a new way when an obstacle shows itself.

 Action steps to work through and follow. Write these down and go through them regularly.

1. Start small, end big.

2. Figure out your priority level for the intended outcome.

3. Stop, think, evaluate, move - STEM.

4. Alter your habits.

5. Try something new.

6. Release the stress

7. Trust yourself.

 Questions to ask yourself, work through, and follow. Write these down and go through them regularly.

  1. Am I inflexible in my small decisions?
  2. Am I selfish? 
  3. Am I setting healthy boundaries?
  4. Where can I compromise?
  5. What is my priority level for this?
  6. Where can I alter a habit to make it more positive?
  7. Do I trust myself?

Important: Am I using STEM

Accomplish anything through discipline.
29:08

Ep #16 - In this weeks episode we discuss principle #5 - Discipline.

Anything worth accomplishing is going to take many steps, stages, and a hell of a lot of time. There are going to be hurdles and there will certainly be imbalances you have to deal with at some point. This is where discipline comes to play.

You will not achieve anything in life without having to overcome an obstacle that you did not see coming. 

Do you have the discipline to move through those hurdles, those barriers, those limiting beliefs that you've put in front of yourself? 

How to master discipline in your life. Ask yourself these questions, write down the answers, rinse and repeat frequently.

  1. What is your vision?
  2. What is your “why?”

  3. Build a habit around it.

  4. Are you being mindful and self-aware?

  5. Are you consistently stressing yourself out?

  6. Who is in your circle of influence

An object in motion stays in motion, so be all about that action boss
29:08

Ep #15 - In this weeks episode we discuss principle #4 - Action. 

Procrastination and/or perfectionism are massive hindrances to action. Being action-oriented is crucial in life because its the only way you’ll know if the decision you made was the right one for you or not. 

In college, being action-oriented is insanely important because you have everything at your disposal, a world of opportunities. It is a rare time in your life when you will generally be surrounded by people seeking to evolve and propel their lives in a new direction. Getting into a rhythm, discovering your true self, and moving toward your destiny should be priorities in your university life.

How to take action? 

1. Get up and do something!

2. Realize the conditions to start will never be perfect.

3. Stop over-analyzing.

Be habitually decisive and confident in your decisions
31:36

Ep #14 - In this weeks episode, we discuss principle #3 - Decisiveness.

Being decisive is crucial in life because we can often get stuck in the paradox of choice - too many options so we pick none.

Decisiveness is the ability to make a clear choice when presented with many options, yes, and it’s also the practice of moving forward with your decision with confidence and getting the most from the experience the decision affords you.

Making the decision then wondering if you should have chosen differently the whole time you are doing whatever it is you chose to do is not being decisive.

Make a choice and let it play out while you give it 100% of your effort all the way through. Do not stop a month in because it feels uncomfortable and scary. 

Discomfort is a signal you are growing, learning something new, and most likely the result of you truly becoming the person college will influence you to become.

You're in college, try new things out. You want to be a vegan, be a vegan. Then be a pescatarian, then a vegetarian - hell, eat only raw meat, under a pale moonlight, in the woods, if you want. 

You can make those decisions, just make them and move forward with the confidence you can always make another decision later.

Be courageous and live outside your comfort shell.
30:14

Ep #13 - In this weeks episode we discuss principle #2 - Courage.

With an open mind, you can achieve the life of your dreams but you have to possess the courage it will take to step into the life college is there to evolve you toward.

Everything you want in life is at your fingertips, around the corner, but you must reach for it, you must keep moving or you will awake one day with a life of regret instead of fond memories and life experiences (remember this is no failure only feedback) under your belt.

Courage is essential in life because if you lack it, then you will also lack self-awareness, self-confidence, self-esteem, and so much more. 

Everyone is afraid of something, that is a fact. It’s how one faces that fear, manages that fear, deals with that fear, and begins to overcome that fear - that speaks volumes about their courageousness and their character.

If you call yourself a perfectionist or if you procrastinate as a default behavior you are living in a state of fear, and most certainly lacking courage.

As we progress through the next five principles look for ideas and inspiration to push through perfectionism and procrastination and actually get to the job at hand.

  • Step through the fear of social awkwardness.
  • Be grounded in the idea that not everyone will like you but a lot will.
  • Be who you want to be and be around the people you want to be around not just the people that want you around because you act like they want you to act.
  • If you feel fear coming through you ask yourself why you feel that fear, where is the source of the fear, and how can you overcome the fear? 
    • In my experience, just going through the act that is bringing you fear will relieve most of the fear. 
    • You know you have done this in other areas of your life. Go back to a time when you overcame a fear. What were you doing? How did you do to overcome the fear?

Develop an open-mind for maximum growth
34:38

Ep #12 - In this weeks episode we discuss principle #1 - Open-mindedness.

College is a taste test for the "real world." A growth mindset is the key that will unlock every door you come across in your collegiate journey as well as your life. A growth or fixed mindset can be present in any area of your life. You must be conscious of the self-talk, the limitations you hold yourself to, and be able to navigate through them to achieve what you desire in college and life.

Once you learn more about growth mindset, you will begin to see it, and especially the fixed mindset, all around you. On TV, the internet, social media, friends, family, yourself - mindset is the foundation in which all of everything is built, and it is your choice in how you approach every situation and the perspective you experience it through. 

Perception is your reality. In this episode, we dive into your mindset in order to maximize your potential.

42:15

Ep #11 - These 7 Principles govern the filter I use to monitor my daily and life activities. Having your own list is paramount to your college & life success. It is through this filter you can determine if you are moving toward or away from your goals and intended outcomes.

Melissa Wilson on the Power of Time
35:04

Ep #10 - Today, I am joined by Melissa Wilson, M.Ed., to discuss keys to success for current college students. Melissa is an academic advisor for the nursing division at IUPUC (Indiana University—Purdue University Columbus). 

Through Melissa's experience advising and guiding college students, she has put together three keys that we discuss in depth during this interview.

Here are the three keys for college success from Melissa Wilson:

Key #1 - Focus on time management, especially with online courses.

Key #2 - Establish communication with your instructors and teacher's aides on campus. 

Key #3 - Create and maintain a strong campus connection.

Melissa believes that successful students have learned to plan and mange their time appropriately. We discuss the strategies that students use to track their schedules along with whether it is preferred to use an online versus a physical calendar. 

For those of you taking online classes, we devote a section of our discussion to habits and behaviors that will help improve the probability of success with distance learning. 

Whether you are an online student, an in-person student, or a combo of each, we also talk about ways of creating a campus connection and why it is important to do so. 

All of this and more will be discussed in this powerful interview so make sure to listen to the episode in its entirety. Enjoy!

How to Effectively Utilize Social Media
26:40

Ep #09 - In today's episode of College Success Habits, we will be discussing habit structure and creation around your cell phone and social media use. Cell phones are tricky because they are powerful tools when used with proper intention and they can be massive time wasters when used at random. The same can be said for social media. Social media opens up new doors for relationship building and creates opportunities, but it can also eat up your time and leave you wondering where your day went.

I have a question for you. How can you control your phone so that it doesn't control you? In my analysis of this, I have identified three keys to follow so that you remain in control over your phone and social media use.

Key #1 - Know why you're getting on your phone and have a clear intention. Another way to think about this is to always have a purpose for using your phone.

Key #2 - Set time during the day to go off the grid.

Key #3 - Utilize social media in an intentional and mindful way.

For many people, the phone is a distraction that may keep them from being their most productive self. This is why bringing awareness to your phone habits and the time you spend on it can be critical to your success at college and in life.

With social media in particular, I have a few strategies to employ which can help you stay on task and prevent wasting time. 

  • Figure out the top 2 or 3 social media apps that you want to use.


  • When accessing social media, go directly to profiles that you want to visit and avoid randomly scrolling through your feed.


  • Be wary of using multiple app that do the same thing like HouseParty, WhatsApp, and Slack. Using all of these apps simultaneously just wastes time. Try to consolidate your chat activities to a single app if possible.


  • When you join a club or association on campus, figure out which social media app they want to use and keep everyone on a single app. Simplicity saves time and makes it easier for everyone to stay connected without missing messages.

When you use your phone with intention and purpose, you will have a huge advantage over others that do not. Staying in control of your cell phone usage habits will set you up for college success. Enjoy the episode and let me know your thoughts on the subject.

Secrets to Make Exercise Easy
25:15

Ep #08 - The topic for today's show is exercise and how to make it easy in your life. When transitioning from high school to college, it's easy to lose structure within our days and often exercise is an area that suffers without structure. Like many things in life, we exercise or don't exercise based on our priorities. We all have the exact same amount of time in life.

In this episode, I will share my personal story with how I gained weight in college, lost my health, and ultimately found a system to get it back. I will reveal some of the simple tactics that I implemented in my life which helped me return health to a top priority. Ultimately, I want to help you create an exercise habit that is so ingrained that it will feel preposterous to miss a day of exercise. I will help you develop a vision and drive you towards that goal. Listen in and learn how to make exercise a peak priority in your life.

Applying the 4 Learning Styles as a Habit
26:56

Ep # 07 - Welcome back to another edition of the College Success Habits podcast. In today's discussion, I will be reviewing the prior episode's interview with Gretchen Potts and I'm going to break down each of her 4 learning styles that she revealed on that show. If you have not yet listened to the prior episode, I would highly recommend you go back and catch up before listening. 

As a brief review, Gretchen Potts named 4 learning styles which were as follows: (1) The No Fear, (2) The Procrastinator, (3) The Spinner / The Overthinker, and (4) The Vision Squanderer. 

Today, I will be describing these four learning styles in detail and clearing up any questions that may be lingering. Self-awareness is an important factor in creating college success habits and when you can recognize your particular learning style, you can then make the appropriate adjustments that will help you reach maximum efficiency.

If learning styles interest you like they do me, you are going to get a lot out of today's discussion. Enjoy!

Powerful Morning Routines
28:37

Ep #04 - In today's episode, I get to cover one of my favorite topics in the area of habits, morning routines.

How can you ensure that you are being efficient in getting your day started so that you immediately feel like your accomplishing things? This is an important question to ask yourself each and every day so that you are framing your days for success and achievement.

I will be the first to admit that my morning routine has changed dramatically over the years. In college, my drinking habits would often hijack my morning routines, but I also had strategies for still being efficient when I absolutely had to. I will share today how I was able to achieve this efficiency even while in college as well as to how I have adapted these strategies to work much, much more efficiently in a life of sobriety.

It is also important to make sure that your morning routines are being created for you and you alone. These routines only needs to serve you. Don't let other people dictate the way you start your morning and set up your day.

Why Our Brains Create Habits
28:47

Ep #03 - In this episode of "College Success Habits," I dive into the topics of habit formation and habit structure. I originally wanted to do this third episode on morning routines, but realized that there was an element missing before discussing types of habits. First and foremost, I felt that I should go deep on the subject of habits by defining what they are and discussing why they even exist to begin with. This is foundational content to the theme of this show and I think you will love it.
