76. Slowing Down to Speed Up

Today’s podcast is focused on slowing down in order to speed up. You might ask yourself why on earth would I slow down when there is so much to do?

71. Maintaining a Neutral Mindset

Today’s episode is focused on how to maintain a neutral mindset. Having a neutral mindset helps you maintain your emotions and be open-minded when others may not be able to do that. You can’t make good decisions if you are in a fight-or-flight moment. The goal isn’t to be over-the-top negative or positive. Achieving the outcome you want is about remaining calm and accepting whatever situation you ...
