Kevin Love on Trying to Achieve His Way Out of Depression
Play • 35 min

NBA star Kevin Love has reached incredible success in the NBA. But his drive to move ahead also masked depression and anxiety, which he’s struggled with for much of his life. For a long time, he hid his battle with mental health because he was worried that his fans would see him as “weak.” But after a very public panic attack in 2017, Love started speaking out about his mental health.

Love talks with host Morra Aarons-Mele about role modeling openness about mental health, how he manages his social anxiety as a celebrity, and why basketball both aggravates and relieves his depression.

137: Estimate Tasks and Projects with Greater Accuracy with Jessica Katz
Most of us are terrible at estimating how long work will take. For any given task, that may not matter. But if you’re trying to plan your week or create a project plan with your team, the lack of accurate forecasting can become a major point of frustration and stress. In this episode I talk with Jessica Katz. Jessica’s organization, Liberated Elephant, provides Agile coaching and change management to transform successful startups into commanding enterprises. Jessica focuses on the human potential of the organization - How to move from where you are, to where you want to be, while retaining team engagement and increasing revenue. Jessica and I talk about how to more accurately estimate the time required to complete work, and how to continually improve your estimates, how to get your team to adopt a mindset for effective time and task planning, and more. Members of The Modern Manager get 15% off a one hour coaching session with Jessica to help improve your leadership, intentionally design your career path, or better navigate your life and work in alignment with your core principles.

Read the related blog article: How To Accurately Estimate Your Tasks and Projects Key Takeaways: * It’s difficult for human beings to estimate how long complex tasks will take. We don't consider all the things that could go wrong (planning fallacy) and we generally assume things will go well (optimism bias). * To improve your time estimation, break tasks down to the smallest thing you can do that still has value. * Estimate the amount of time each task will take. Keep track via a simple spreadsheet of how long each item took to complete. * Build empirical data by tracking actual time against projections. Use the data to make more informed guesses on how to plan out your time. * Estimate a reasonable amount of time for a task based on your data, not just a pure guess. You can then decide who's going to work on what and how you're going to schedule it based on capability and capacity. * Don’t set your plans in stone. Focus on what you’re trying to achieve and adjust your plan as you go along. * Allow for experimentation,adjust for context changes, and review your plans every 2- 4 weeks with your team. * Get your team on board by modeling the behaviors you're expecting. If you want your people to work at a more sustainable pace with less hours and to keep track of and manage their time better, you should also. * Host a meeting to discuss what your goals are: Are you looking for better time management or less employee stress? What difficulties are you or your organization experiencing? Talk through ideas about how you can improve, and review your plans frequently.

PPP 314 | How Men Can Be Better Allies for Women in the Workplace, with authors David Smith and Brad Johnson
Being Allies for Women in Project Management Project management is a fantastic career path for us all, and especially women. As much progress as women have made in the workplace, there remain many barriers that, quite frankly, many men are blind to. In this episode, we’re going to focus on this in a way that I hope you will find empowering, encouraging, and actionable. It’s not a discussion that is blaming or shaming men. It’s about helping us see that there’s work to do, and I think both men and women are going to walk away from today’s discussion with ideas you can take action on right away. My guests in this episode are David Smith and Brad Johnson, authors of the new book Good Guys: How Men Can Be Better Allies for Women in the Workplace.

Live Life Colorfully | Jason Naylor
I first learned about today’s guest, Jason Naylor, through his art, which at that point, started appearing on walls and buildings all over New York City, and now is featured all over the world and on products, shows, in fashion and beyond. Jason is originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, where he grew up in a Mormon community and eventually felt called to step away and define his own path. After getting his BFA in graphic design from Brigham Young, he moved to New York City where he began his career in MAC Cosmetics’ Creative Department as a designer, but the whole time, he was creating his own work and starting to paint these hyper-vivid murals on walls around the city, often featuring inspirational words and quotes on the side. His style just kind of exploded with energy and kindness and playfulness.  As his work caught on, leading to more and bigger commissions and collaborations with companies like Coach, Sephora, and Pepsi, he left his full-time gig and went all-in on his own art, now running his own brand, Jason Naylor Studio, where he continues to share his positivity through murals, graphic pieces, and collaborations with New York City communities, as well as popular brands. Much of his work and his philosophy of life and creativity appears in his new book, Live Life Colorfully (https://tinyurl.com/yy4mopvp).
