How To Make Better Decisions In Life
Play • 6 min

No matter who you are or what you do for a living, you will always have to make thousands of decisions every single day! Now most of them are relatively small and simple, others are much more complex. However, the thought and act itself of making thousands of decisions a day is overwhelming and exhausting. So much so that sometimes we shut down and refuse to make decisions all together. Here's how we start to fix that and make better decisions going forward.

THIS IS A RE-BROADCAST In just 13 minutes I will talk about the misunderstandings of the meaning of life and how I finally found ways to „find“ it.  A little outtake: "There is this one big question. The question many of us fear and all different sorts of reactions have been monitored: people starting to tremble, others falling into the well of thoughts, some even throwing up, just by hearing this one question. Which is: „What’s the meaning of life?“ How is your reaction? Do you know, that I felt guilty for years when I came across this question and it also took me a long time to finally be in peace with it? It started in school, as a teenager, when our teacher told us, that we find the meaning of life by asking the question: “ What do I care about?“ Dear me. My mind was searching nervously for an answer. Suddenly it was my turn: "What’s the meaning in life Anna?" I looked at him with questioning fearful eyes saying: „to enjoy life, maybe?“ He laughed and told us, that it is more than that. I went home, thought about it, but never came up with an answer for myself, more than: to enjoy life. But yes, I felt guilty. Because now I believed, that the „meaning of life“ always has to be a contribution to something bigger." How did I find peace with this question? Listen to all of it and enjoy hopefully a meaningful episode. 😉 Take care and be safe. AnnA  Episode notes:The first encounter (going wrong) with the ultimate question 00:00 - 02:49 The movies: Monty Python's the meaning of life & The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy  The misunderstandings about the meaning of life 03:53 - 06:44 No 1: we tend to think that there is just THE ONE meaning of life. No 2: that it is HARD to find the meaning of lifeNo 3: that the meaning has to be a contribution to something bigger than yourself No 4: without meaning we will be unhappy No 5: to have a goal gives us a meaning  3 easy ways to look at the meaning of life 06:40 - 11:30My by the way 11:30 - end The Member's Club CHECK IT OUT 23rd of February 08:00 am CET TIME FOR FOCUS Zoom Speech23rd of February 06:00 pm CET TIME FOR FOCUS Zoom Speech24.

Courage is Rewarded: My Conversation with Tina Tran
If there’s one thing i’ve learned in this life, it is this: Everyone you meet has a backstory. Everyone has a history full of highs and lows, celebration and tragedy. And it’s so easy to forget this when we’re in our 500th meeting of the day. That each face (or name if cameras are off) has a story. In our minds, we think in terms of title. Or position in the power hierarchy. Well, my friend, you are about to meet someone with a backstory that will take your breath away. You’re about to meet Tina Tran. Upon first meeting Tina, you would immediately know you were in the presence of a badass. Tina is a director of business development, leading mobile platform and OEM partnerships for a small company you may have heard of called Microsoft. Tina serves on the board of directors at Hello Neighbor, an organization that strengthens communities by matching resettled refugee families with dedicated neighbors to help them thrive in their new lives in the U.S. She is also an advisor for Nomi Network, a non-profit that fights modern day slavery and human trafficking through economic empowerment programs. In 2018, Tina graduated from the prestigious Presidential Leadership Scholars Program, a partnership between the George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Lyndon Johnson, and George Bush presidential centers. She is one of 59 national up- and-coming leaders recognized for her commitment to solving some of our nation’s most pressing problems. See what I mean? BADASS. But she’s also just a good human. She’s someone who loves to connect people, support people, and she just exudes energy. But instead of telling you all about Tina, I want you to meet her. So put your feet up, or strap on your walking shoes, and settle in.

36: What You Gain by Slowing Down
We often feel like we have to make a decision, make a change, make a difference, or achieve a goal quickly. But if we want the benefits to be meaningful and lasting, shouldn’t we be willing to take our time? In this episode, we consider the downside of rushing into a decision to change without considering the realities of trying to create change in too much of a hurry. Then, we'll explore some alternatives. Takeaways: * Knowing or understanding how to do something isn’t the same as actually doing it and experiencing it. Better to gather less information and apply it than to gather lots of information but never to put anything into action. * Sometimes, learning how to slow down and be more deliberate is part of what we need to learn to do in order to get to the result we’re seeking. * Before deciding to commit to a new goal or challenge, be sure you understand what it will involve and whether you’re actually willing to do what it will take. * Things we acquire or develop through slow steady work have a better chance of becoming long-term habits. Lab Experiment Think of an area of your life where you feel like you are in a hurry to finish or achieve something. And ask yourself: * Is trying to get there more quickly actually serving you or just causing you to cut corners? * How could slowing down actually enhance either the process or the result (or both)? * What do you need to adjust about either your actions, beliefs, or self-talk to allow yourself to slow down? * What parts of the process (rather than the outcome) can you focus on that will bring you pleasure and satisfaction?
