Let's Turn This Year Around
Play • 26 min

If 2020 was a question, it would be… how the heck do you make the best of a situation when you can’t even understand the situation? 

When we asked Harvard Professor and Atlantic columnist, Arthur Brooks, he said so matter of factly, “You have to be an entrepreneur about your life.” 

And when we asked Ozan Varol, the self-described perpetual dropout (but more importantly the rocket scientist, lawyer, professor, and author behind the book Think Like a Rocket Scientist), he told us the story of why he dropped out of a comfortable, well-paying career in the middle of a pandemic. 

Together, these two brilliant academics help us understand - is now the time to play it safe or take risks? What can we do to make the best of this year? How can we move through this vast uncertainty, and make 2020 a year worth remembering? Or should we just follow Thomas’s lead and ditch this whole year and find some buried treasure?

Dr. Courtney Tracy | The Truth Doctor
Shameless Self Care
In this episode, Dr. Courtney Tracy discusses a topic known as Shameless Self-Care. She was reflecting on this year and everything that we may have gone through collectively and individually, and perhaps familially, and wondered about how you were all taking care of yourself and if there was any shame connected to the fact that you were, or that you weren’t.    If you’ve been feeling shameful because taking care of yourself has been hard this year, this episode may help you. If you’ve been feeling shameful because this year has finally taught you HOW to take care of yourself and others are upset about it, this episode may help you. If you want to learn more about shame itself and how Dr. Tracy feels it’s related to the concept and action of self-care, then this episode is for you!    We hope you enjoy this episode!   Please contact your emergency line if you are feeling lost or hopeless. You are not alone. We believe in you.    (You can find links to all past recorded episodes below; Episode 1 was not live recorded and is only available in audio format at the platforms listed below)  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -   Hi, I'm Dr. Courtney Tracy, also known as "The Truth Doctor" on social media.
