393: Chris Holtmann - How To Lead With Conviction (Don't Be Afraid To Pursue Growth)
Text LEARNERS to 44222 for leadership development resources Full show-notes at www.LearningLeader.com Twitter/IG: @RyanHawk12 393: Chris Holtmann - Head Basketball Coach of Ohio State University Buckeyes Notes: * Chris played his college basketball at a small Christian school called Taylor University in Upland, Indiana. For a coach named Paul Patterson. Chris said, “I think the core of who I am as a coach comes from him.” * Don’t Be Afraid To Pursue Growth - "As I debated, I realized that I couldn’t blame myself for craving stability – it was only human nature after all. We are drawn by the soft voice of consistency, the allure of a warm blanket of security in our jobs and lives. And while many of us willingly happily give in to living within the status quo, the reality is that the world around us rarely remains motionless. The sun rises and sets, the seasons pass and the world keeps moving and changing. It is only as we grow older and look back at life that we realize all that we have missed, all that we could have accomplished, had we simply pushed ourselves to break free of our fears." * "As I found myself deliberating once again, I began to think back to the work of Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck on motivation and failure. Dweck drew a distinction between performance orientation and learning orientation. Children that believe that their intelligence is fixed almost always give up on problems quickly, whereas those that believe their intelligence is malleable, conversely, stick with problems longer. Adults are no different. Those who are performance oriented are dissuaded by failure - they favor stability. Whereas those of who are learning oriented embrace opportunity and eschew the status quo." * Head Coaches To Lead Their Teams To 5 Straight 1st Round Tourney Wins: Chris Holtmann, Mike Krzyzewski, Jay Wright, Mark Few, Bill Self, Roy Williams, John Calipari * Article: David Brooks - Thick versus Think organizations -- "How To Leave A Mark On People" * Focus on the process... "Do today well." * "Don't compare yourself to others." * Why is Brad Stevens one of the most effective coaches in the world? * "He's an extremely curious learner. He has tremendous EQ and understands how to connect with people." * Chris got promoted to be the interim head coach at Butler shortly after accepting the job to be an assistant... * His boss (athletic director) told him, "You'll be evaluated daily." He came to every practice to watch Chris coach. * "It was hard to hear, but it was the reality. I couldn't listen to critiques. I had to coach to my convictions." * Living your values: You must make a commitment to your values and live them daily. * The values of the Ohio State basketball team: * Truth * Humility * Respect * Toughness - "Grit is imperative in successful people. Your response to challenging moments says everything to success." Coach Tony Bennett is tremendously tough. "Calm is contagious." * Your response to difficult circumstances is what toughness is all about. * Accountability * Thankful * "He who would be calm must first put on the appearance of being calm." * How does one develop composure? * "You need people around you to give you honest feedback. We don't realize how reactionary we can be." * "Any time you feel upset with a player, wait to talk about it until you can process it. Think it through..." * Excellence = * Consistency * Discipline * "Your habits need to match your dreams." * Be convicted in what you believe * What Chris looks for in a player: * Toughness -- "What's the most challenging thing you've been through? How did you respond?" * Selfless * "What's your body language on the bench when you aren't playing?" * "What's your response to a teammates success?" * Honesty * Advice to leaders: * You can't skip steps in the process of being a leader * Value the beginning stages * Eliminate comparison to others as much as possible * Be committed to growing professionally and personally. It's about your daily habits. Your character is put on display. * "We write our stories one decision at a time."

419: Defeating Distraction and Why “To-Do” Lists are Dangerous with Nir Eyal
Ever missed out on an important moment because you were staring at your phone, distracted by TV, or just zoning out? Nir Eyal, author of Indistractable, felt the same way when he missed an important moment with his daughter because he was locked in on his phone. This spurred Nir’s curiosity on why people get distracted, what they’re getting distracted by, and how people can turn their distractions into the opposite: traction.  As a business owner, angel investor, Stanford lecturer, and father, Nir understands what it feels like to live a hectic life, but he also understands that most of the time, we ourselves are the ones making it hectic. So what prompts us to take action? What prompts us to take inaction? How can we make ourselves do the things we need to do, with better results, and still have time for our children, relationships, hobbies, and even down time? It’s all possible, and the key to a distraction-free life is even easier than you would think.  In This Episode We Cover * Why most people know their distractions, but not how to eliminate them  * Why we need to “get out of our own way” to accomplish our goals * How to find your “traction” and use it to get ahead * The 4 steps to eliminate distraction  * Understanding your values and using them to schedule your time * How to “time box” your calendar and get your tasks done * Leaving the victim mentality behind and empowering yourself to do what’s important * The 3 “life domains” that we revolve around  * Why you need to prioritize consistency over intensity  * And So Much More!

Generating Passion Income by Doing What You Love with Brian Ellwood
#163: Is there a way to stop trading your time for money and spend time doing the things you love? If time is our most valuable asset, how do we track it? How much time do you spend working? How can you take back control of your time? Today, we learn more about this idea with Brian Ellwood, host of https://www.brianellwood.net/podcast (12 Houses To Freedom), the podcast that shows you how to create passive income so you can pursue your passion.  Brian shares that having passive income is excellent, but passion income is something different. Passion income is money generated by doing what you love. It combines what you're good at and what truly matters to you. In Brian’s case, his passive income comes from real estate investing, while his passion for coaching has been bringing in a considerable income for him.  Top 3 Things You'll Learn: How to have the clarity to picture a lifestyle you love and take steps to get there Creating passive income streams to pursue something you’re interested in Why you should track your time   Resources: 12 Houses To Freedom Podcast: https://www.brianellwood.net/podcast (https://www.brianellwood.net/podcast)   About Brian: Brian used to have a soul-crushing job, which he eventually quit. Inspired by the book https://www.amazon.com/Rich-Dad-Poor-Teach-Middle/dp/1612680194 (Rich Dad Poor Dad), he got into real estate wholesaling, which he also had to stop. Brian now focuses on a few dozen rentals and uses his passive income to pay for his bills to control his time. Today, Brian coaches others on creating passive income streams to have control over their time, too.  He only works part-time and spends the rest of his time with his wife, Carleigh, and his daughter, Everley, exploring Colorado, snowboarding, doing parkour, skateboarding, playing music and video games, and drinking beer with friends.  Brian believes that "The purpose of real estate investing is not to become your career, but to FREE YOU UP so you can pursue your larger mission in life.”   Connect with Brian: Website: https://www.brianellwood.net/ (https://www.brianellwood.net)
