We’re living through an epidemic of Loneliness. Healthy and Safe Touch doesn’t just help during lock downs during Corona. My friend Dawn Bennett – an expert in a technique called ‘tapping’ – shows us how touch can help with so many other things. Free your mind, and the rest will follow. Learn more in my latest ‘From The Bunker’ blog.
Resolution Free New Year’s Podcast
I don’t do resolutions. First of all, these days everything has a ‘best practices‘ guide. Second I do two things on the New Year. I thank the people who meant the most, let the year go and move on. We’ll do that in Resolution-Free-New-Year-Gratitude-Bob Davis Podcast 889.
2019 Was A Slog
Above all each year seems to have a theme in my experience. Moreover 2019 was more of a slog than a dance. I think that’s true for most people.
Plenty Of Gratitude
A lot of friends and clients went above and beyond this year. Consequently I’ll use this podcast as an opportunity to show my gratitude to all of them.
Bob Davis Podcasts Hit Ten Year Mark
In addition this is my tenth year podcasting. I was an early adopter when it came to podcasting. I find it hard to believe I have managed almost one thousand podcasts, all with sponsors.
Certainly creative businesses are tough rows to hoe. These days running a creative enterprise can feel like walking around in the dark trying to find the light switch. Learn more in Resolution-Free-New-Year-Gratitude-Bob Davis Podcast 889.
In contrast to stumbling around in the dark, the new wrinkle for 2019 has been business networking. My business and my life has been greatly enriched by my business networking partners. They get a big thank you as do all my clients.
Contributors Take A Bow
Furthermore the people who have contributed to the Bob Davis Podcasts really deserve special mention. I often say that those contributions can often be the difference between not eating and eating, when I am on the road.
A Shift Away From Day To Day Politics
It’s most noteworthy that this year marks a decided shift away from day to day politics and this podcast.
I think all of us get tired of day to day arguments that lead nowhere.
Travel and Yoga
Happy New Year!

Flu Shot Or Not
Hear The Flu In This Podcast
You can tell as soon as you download this podcast I am just recovering from a pretty bad bout with the flu. Voice a little weak. Especially relevant is the heavy congestion.
Hate Flu Shots
First of all I don’t like getting flu shots. I’ve always felt that actually getting the virus helps your body gain a stronger immunity. In addition I also believe it gives you some immunity to future strains. The good news is you’re possibly immune to the zombie apocalypse flu. The bad news is you got the flu, right?
Beginning To Understand Why People Get Flu Shots
In contrast as I get a little older I am starting to understand why vulnerable groups are encouraged to get shots. Senior citizens, and sometimes the very young. Finally after ten plus days in a malaise, coughing constantly and having to get medications I have some thoughts to share.
Like A Hurricane
The flu is like a hurricane. You know it’s coming. The storm might glance your island or miss completely. Then again it could be a direct hit. That’s what happened to me. Hurricanes are hard to predict and so is the flu.
Most noteworthy? Influenza is a respiratory disease attacking ears, nose, throat and lungs.
Coffee Started Tasting Bad
Early symptoms always feel like a cold or headache.
“How did you know you were sick”, they asked me. Truth is, the coffee started tasting bad five or six days out. Then a lot of sleeping. A lot!
Furthermore when you start recovering you feel like a million bucks! As a result you gain some clarity about life. And stuff.
My conclusion is every now and then an enforced ‘vacation’, coupled with a physical ordeal can kind of be fun. People tell me I drive myself pretty hard and I guess I do. Getting called out of the game for a few days isn’t such a bad thing. We’ll talk about it in Flu-Shot-Or-Not-Bob Davis Podcast 870.
I love life. Even when it’s uphill. Those moments make the downhill moments seem even sweeter.
We can get caught in the ACTION phrase of life’s loop. When you just have to stop you learn a lot.
Flu Shot? Where’s The Fun In That?
Then again, I could have just gotten a flu shot.
