Rank #1: The Art of Overcoming Procrastination with Adam Grant

Podcast cover
Read more

Procrastination is associated with laziness by many, but the science shows us otherwise - so if procrastinators aren’t lazy then why do we assume they are, what can you do about your procrastination if you want to change it, and why is now the best time to overcome your procrastination habit?  


What to Listen For

  • What can you do today to overcome your procrastination habits?
  • How do we redesign jobs that now have to operate from a distance?
  • Why is it more challenging to work remotely and what can you do to overcome them so you don’t lose your job?
  • What questions can you ask someone to help them figure out what motivates them so you can help them become a happier and more productive employee?
  • What can we do as leaders to help our coworkers and employees grapple with the loneliness that accompanies working from home for many people?
  • What is one of the most powerful antidotes to loneliness that we can give people any time?
  • What simple exercise can you go through with your employees or coworkers to immediately improve their creativity and productivity?
  • What can you do to immediately win the battle over procrastination while you’re working from home?
  • How can you break down your procrastination into understandable chunks so you can easily overcome them?
  • What does the science say about the ideal workplace environment so you can make your office more conducive to your work?
  • What should we be most concerned about as we come out of this quarantine and will we be able to return to normal?


If you find yourself procrastinating, it’s not necessarily a problem with your work ethic, but can certainly be a problem with your ability to regulate your emotions. When confronted with a task that makes you feel uncomfortable (angry, uncertainty, frustrated, annoyed, anxious, etc), procrastination can kick in to help you avoid feeling those things. So what can you do to mitigate these responses and overcome your procrastination before it costs you an awesome opportunity? Tune in to find out!

Rank #2: The Art of Talking To Anyone

Podcast cover
Read more

Talking to people we don’t know can be uncomfortable and sometimes terrifying, so why is it so important that we become comfortable with it and overcome the fear, what does science say about the value of talking to strangers, and what can you do to become a master of meeting new people?


What to Listen For

  • Why is it easier for introverts to talk to strangers than friends and family members?
  • Why is it scary for us to talk to people we don’t know and what can you do to overcome that fear?
  • What is a digital device security blanket and how does it put a wall up around each of us?
  • What does science say about the value of small talk with strangers and how can it prevent you from feeling isolated and disconnected from the world around you?
  • Where is the best place to meet new people and what should you say when you introduce yourself?
  • How do you use shared experiences to strike up a conversation with someone you know nothing about?
  • When is it appropriate to compliment a stranger and how do you decide what to compliment someone on?
  • What is a transactional question and how do you ask one without shutting down the conversation before it’s even begun?
  • Can you ask too many questions in a conversation?


The more comfortable you are with talking to strangers, the greater your opportunities become. It’s a simple numbers game. If 1 out of every 100 people could connect you to a great job offer, a new friend, or a romantic partner, then doesn’t it stand that the more people you meet, the greater your chances become of landing your dream job, making new friends, and finding a great partner?


If you are uncomfortable with striking up a conversation with someone out of the blue, your connections and relationships will always be limited to the people already in your social circle and chance encounters (with people who do like striking up conversations with strangers). You only get one life - don’t leave your fate up to chance. Take control and go after what you want.

Why the content of what we worry about is far less important than the process of how worry operates. Anxiety, worry, and depression are all fueled by the predictable and redundant processes of global, catastrophic, and permanent thinking. Why the more we adhere to the demands of anxiety, the stronger that anxiety becomes.

Rank #15: 767: How to master communication in a relationship

Podcast cover
Read more

Relationships are a two-way street, but when it comes to communication it’s important to understand people have a variety of preferences when it comes to how love and affection are given and received, so what are those preferences, how can you identify what someone’s preferences are, and how can you implement all of this information to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones?


What to Listen For

  • What can you do to strengthen the relationships in your life?
  • What can you do if you think you’re a great listener but people around you keep complaining about you not listening?
  • Why is it a recipe for disaster to look for someone to complete you and what should you be looking for instead?
  • What are the Five Languages of Appreciation and how can you pick the best one for each of your relationships?
  • What are the three parts of communication and how does your awareness of each part help to mitigate miscommunication?
  • How do you identify the love languages of family, friends, and coworkers?
  • Why are openness and vulnerability mandatory when it comes to figuring out the love languages of the people in your life?
  • What little signals can you pay attention to so you can get an idea for how your loved ones communicate?


In order to deepen the connections we have with the people around us, it’s important to understand how the people around us prefer to be treated. Just because you view the giving and receiving of affection one way, doesn’t mean everyone else does as well. Some people prefer to show their appreciation through words, some prefer to show it through gifts, and some prefer the spending of quality time together - and that’s just to name a few.

Why Chase considers polygraph tests "just about as accurate as a coin toss" -- and how they're actually biased against people who tell the truth.

Podcast cover
Read more

Storytelling is the glue which has held humanity together over tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of years - but why are stories so important to us, what goes into creating a great story, and what can you do turn any story from your life into a great story worth telling?



What to Listen For

  • Why is storytelling such a valuable skill to have in personal and professional relationships?
  • What can you do to tell engaging and compelling stories?
  • Why is your storytelling ability important for making new friends, building a network, and dating?
  • How does your storytelling ability make or break your performance in sales?
  • Why do many of us focus on the wrong things when telling a story and how is it hindering you socially and professionally?
  • Why are stories so powerful in conveying information and connecting us?
  • How do you structure a story so you’re captivating the listeners and they can’t help but remember you?
  • What is the Hero’s Journey and how has it been used throughout history to structure famous stories in mythology, religion, and literature?
  • What are 8 steps can you follow to turn any story into a great story?

Storytelling is indeed an art, but an art with a structure. This structure has been passed down through the ages and can be found throughout the world in various cultures, which means it can be taught and learned. If you want to create strong relationships in your personal life and professional life, then you need to become a great storyteller.
