Second Mix - Reflect, Revise, and Remix Your Life

Welcome to the second mix podcast where we reflect, revise, and remix our lives.

My name is Matt Bennett and I'm bringing you some old-school personal development from the original masters of motivation as well as interviews with entrepreneurs, authors, coaches, and consultants - anyone who has a mission of making things better.

My guest today is Jerry Fu, a coach and conflict resolution specialist - and he's got some very practical advise for conflict resolution, as well as some excellent productivity tips - and...

I was in the hospital for 25 days out of a 45-day period in February and March of this year.

Hello listeners! It's been a great season, from February to September, and this has been a really fun process for me - starting a podcast and learning how to do it. It was also a major lesson in consistency. I can't wait to start it all again next year - more guests, and more of everything else you've been hearing the past 8 months. 

During the break, I will still be posting - not consistently, not every Monday and Thurs...

When I was with the "wrong" people, not only was my mindset wrong, but it was seriously affecting my desires, my goals, my mission, and my vision for my life. It all works together. Any moment you choose, you can begin looking for the exact people you need to stop procrastinating and start getting what you want out of life. Whether they are friends, mentors, coaches, or mastermind groups, it is well worth finding the people...

HOW. The most important question you can ask yourself when you run up against a stone wall. How do I get this done? How do I get through this? How do I learn this skill? How can I run this business successfully? How do I meet the right people? How do I talk to those people?

The other word is UNTIL. As Jim Rohn always asked, how long should it take a baby to learn how to walk? How long would you give your average baby? How long befor...

Choose what you focus on! If you say yes to anything, you are saying no to a lot of other things. There are only a handful of personal development principles, and when we work on any of these, we are working on the same things that the top executives and leaders are working on in their own lives. Things like focus, making sure you can say no to the good things, so you you can say yes to the great things, and how to find out where y...

How does a small action from high school come back to surprise me 27 years later? And how does a cute magic trick come back as a big silver belt buck in 12 months. The ripple affects me and it affects you - you can't escape the effect, but you can choose the energy.

In the middle of a huge battle of wills between my wife and me, I got angry and went for a walk in the woods. What I chose to listen to that day changed the course of my life, and is still changing it 2 1/2 years later. Don't miss the lessons I learned, or how I wasted almost 30 years of my life.

This is a special day - something I’ve never quite done before. On Thursday, I did a book jam episode on the book Swipe Right On Your Best Self by author and leadership coach Eric Winters, and today I got to interview the author himself. In our brief conversation, he covers so much ground - self-leadership, the normality of anxiety, taking things ...

Book Jam - A review, summary, of Eric Winter's book Swipe Right On Your Best Self.

It’s so hard to categorize life in a way that makes sense. Life is too big to fit into a little container that we can study and understand it. That’s why there are so many books on the topic – too many for me to read in a lifetime, though I’ll still try. I like t...

I find as I go through my day that there are times I’m not feeling at my best, and I begin to look for reasons why. I will scan my environment hoping to find some reason to be a victim. When my eyes are open for a right to be angry, I will find one. A big part of mindset work is dealing with this part of us that searches for the negative, searches ...

When I bought the book Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport, it was based on a complete misunderstanding of what the term digital minimalism meant. I had my life cluttered up with digital files all over – my computer, cloud drives, files for everything. Saved articles, ideas, and so much more - my online life was far more cluttered than I allowed my ...
