Reclaiming-Our-Lives-Bob Davis Podcast 960

Most Important Thing

The most important thing to remember is we can reclaim our lives whenever we want. Learn more in Reclaiming-Our-Lives-Bob Davis Podcast 960.

Take It Back

Second of all why don’t we take our lives back?

Certainly it’s complicated. Jobs. Kids. Goals. Stuff. Plans.

Complicated Methods For Simplifying Your Life

And I know there’s all kinds of help and methods for simplifying your life.

Moreover there are so many ‘simplify your life’ plans and suggestions, there are even whole books available on the subject.

I Have A Simple Plan

Burn it.

Throw it away.

Give it away.

All of it.

Now.

I Did It!

In the same vein that is exactly what I have done.

In addition it feels great.

Method To The Madness

To clarify I’ve done all this for a reason. The next chapter of my life and these podcasts is about to begin.

Extreme Steps

During the whole clean up effort before a move on my end, I planned the next step.

In addition it’s an extreme step.

And it will rock.

Bored With Everything?

Above all much of my boredom and restlessness recently has to do with the present media situation and how it covers the so called news. Even more, how it covers and talks about everything.

America Is In High Anxiety About The Future

Likewise many of my friends have indicated a high level of anxiety about the future.

Likewise and especially how our media talks about the cartoon show we call politics and news.

Time To Change Focus

To sum up this podcast, I’m not going to say what I am going to do just yet, but it will change the focus of the podcasts slightly.

Taking Action

I can say that I am not going to sit here and do nothing.

I’m taking action.

I’m reclaiming my life

Dynamic Content

Finally I look forward to more dynamic content in these podcasts after what we laughingly refer to as an election.

In conclusion I’ve talked about reclaiming the spirit and passion of my life for along time.

Starting Over

After getting rid of everything I can barely wait to start all over again.

Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827

We Are Our Own Worst Enemy

We are often our own worst enemy. This is an idea especially relevant to business owners. Financial and Business Consultant Todd Rooker and I talk about it in Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827.

Our Psychology Can Kill Our Business

Moreover these days wherever you turn for information you’re likely to get a prediction based on the past. It all adds up to preconceived notions and cognitive dissonance which can be fatal to a small business.

Perception Can Be A Reality You Don’t Want To Live In

Financial Consultant Extraordinaire Rooker says it comes down to business owners wanting what they want, when they want it. I think it also has to do with this habit of pundits and commentators everywhere trying to compare our time, to the past rather than the present.

Assumption Is The Mother Of All F-Ups

Consequently business owners need guidance. Its very easy to get off the path or the plan. Especially when we might not have had much of a plan to start with. We talk about all this in Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827.

Rooker Tells It Like It Is

Finally if you’re a business owner you won’t hear business being discussed with this level of clarity and authenticity very often. Rooker has worked with thousands of business owners over the years. When you add life and business experience, he has a lot of wisdom to share.

New World

Topics include the business mindset, cognitive dissonance and how to effects business owners, how different generations think about business overall, and our fast moving new world.

An Extraordinary Time

In conclusion I have certainly said over and over in these podcasts that I think we’re living through an extraordinary time. Never before have we faced the challenges we face. In addition we have never had tools with the power and scope we have these days. It’s a unique combination of factors we’ve never really seen before.

Despite the challenges it is a great time to be in business, as long as we don’t operate from preconceived notions.

Time Like No Other-Bob Davis Podcast 826

We’re living through a time like no other. Talking heads constantly compare our time to other times. Does that make sense these days? We’ll talk about it in Time Like No Other-Bob Davis Podcast 826.

Fall Of Rome Anyone?

We’re living through an era ‘like’ the end of the Roman Empire, the foundation of the American Republic, the Civil War, even the 1920’s, say pundits.

Civil War?

Our political divisions are ‘just like‘ those before the Civil War. Is this valid? We’ll talk about it in Time Like No Other-Bob Davis Podcast 826.

World War One On The Menu?

In addition our time is supposedly just like the time before World War One because we face trouble in Eastern Europe and the Middle East and there is a backlash to free trade. Does this make sense?

Trump and Hayes

Hapless political figures are compared to President Trump. Andrew Jackson. James Buchanan. Even Abe Lincoln, Andrew Jackson and Richard Nixon. Rutherford B. Hates and George Wallace. These comparisons are inaccurate. Comparisons suggest an outcome. Also inaccurate.

Ours Is A Unique Era

Finally these comparisons hide the fact that we are living through a unique time. Institutions that have existed for hundreds and even thousands of years appear to be in rapid decline today. At the same time scientific and technological advancements promise even more disruption in the days to come.

Borders, Drones, Social Media As A Weapon and AI

From Border issues to Artificial Intelligence to the rise of Social Media as a weapon. New companies and new products generate unprecedented profits. People seem to be losing faith in their governments. How will we handle these issues?

This Is Not A Movie

Above all comparing our population and technology to ancient and bygone times might make great movies, but bad reality.

In conclusion, we don’t address critical challenges when we look to the past.

By all means let’s learn from history but history isn’t a simple template you can apply to the present time. We’re making it up as we go. Maybe it’s time to accept this really is a new and unique age and act accordingly.

(Editor’s Note: This is a complex podcast. When I do these kinds of podcasts I rush a little to get through necessary details, so I can get to the conclusions. And of course, when rush I can misspeak. The most glaring example in this podcast? I confused President Andrew Jackson with President Andrew Johnson. Seconds before speaking about Jackson, I jumped ahead to the 1860’s when Johnson, not Jackson was impeached.)
