What is your Next Chapter?

Jun 18, 2019

Show Notes 

[PLEASE NOTE: The quality of sound on my guest’s phone is not so good, but I encourage you to listen anyway. This is most certainly one of my best shows. We’ll do another with Mark in studio.)

My guest, Mark Samuel, is CEO of IMPAQ Consulting and has been recognized as one of today’s leading Thought Leaders on the Power of Personal and Corporate Accountability. Our entire conversation today will be about the unparalleled advantages of taking accountability seriously.

Now I can guess what you are thinking: Accountability, Ugh!! I’m outta here. But hang in, this conversation with Mark Samuel will be extremely valuable.

Mark and I go back 30 years to the beginnings of my days as a corporate consultant. Mark was my teacher, mentor and friend as I began my trek as a corporate consultant. I have probably learned more from Mark than anyone else about how to manage corporate and personal relationships. He taught to facilitate critical strategic planning sessions with both high level executives and mid management groups.

Mark is the author of several books but I want to highlight two: First, is “The Power of Personal Accountability,” and the other is his latest best selling business book titled “B State” which offers an entirely new process of management, in which accountability plays a major role.

So let’s dive deep into the every so fun subject of accountability. You’ll be so surprised by the life-changing results of becoming a personally accountable person.

Also purchase Mark’s books on Amazon: The Power of Personal Accountability and B State.

Show Notes 

Today Producer Paul and I plan to have a conversation on what seems a deep and yet pervasive onslaught of apathy both culturally and individually we are experiencing today.

Apathy is a strange bird. Psychology Today calls it the “emotionless emotion.” Jimmy Buffet, said it best, “I’ve been wondering if what I am feeling is ignorance or apathy. Hell, I don’t know and I don’t care.”

In Psychology Today I read, “Paradoxically, what makes the feeling of apathy unique is that it’s essentially the feeling of not feeling. And doubtless, it’s something that at some point in your existence you’ve encountered. We all have. For whenever you feel that something vital is missing from your life, yet lack the motivation or drive to pursue it, you’re afflicted with this curiously “emotionless” emotion.” 

So at the heart of apathy, is a feeling that “something vital is missing from your life.” You feel you have nothing worthy of your effort to pursue. There is no anticipation of hope, and without hope life becomes almost pointless. In Victor Frankl’s brilliant book documenting his psychological state in a Nazi concentration camp he clearly stared that it was only HOPE that kept people going.

All of the drivers of meaning and fulfillment have dissipated to a point of a profound disinterest in all that motivated you in the past: a cause, your job, your most meaningful relationships, your worthiness in pursuing something essential in your own estimation.

In my observation apathy occurs in two conditions: First is what Paul is most intrigued with and that is an a culture of apathy regarding politics and religion and the second is what I am calling personal apathy and that is when you get a case of the “I just don’t give a shit.”

Let’s deal with the second one first.

Personally, for a few weeks now, I have been in the doldrums of a bit of apathy. Activities that once inspired me I find rather unexciting. As a very passionate person this feeing is rather disconcerting. “I just don’t care about what I desire to care about: I no longer paint, I spend less time writing, and even my volunteer commitments have suffered. I still do what is required but I am not currently satisfied by it.

My feeling is that I just want to quit everything. But, obviously, that is not the solution because somewhere deep inside I still love all these activities.

Show Notes  

Are you ready for yet another conversation about things we are not supposed to talk about? We’ve done religion and politics, now I want to learn about dying and how we can best prepare for the inevitable.

My guest today is an expert on the subject and, no, he is not a mortician. My special guest is Keith Page, a funeral celebrant who works closely with families in the midst of a death. Keith’s focus is to prepare people of all ages of how to manage the entire process of dying.

Let me read a piece Keith gave me before the show:

“Death is a vast mystery but there are two things we can say about it: it is absolutely certain that we will die, but what is uncertain is when or how we will die. The only sure thing we have, then, is this uncertainty about the hour of our death - which we use as an excuse to postpone facing death directly. 

Instead of dealing with it as a normal part of life, death is treated as an unexpected emergency; something that happens when the medical community fails. We always die of something - as though if it weren’t for that disease or accident we could have lived on.

Very often those who take time to plan arrangements with death also end up having made new arrangements with life. After they know they are going to die, people often live and die well. We’ve all heard stories of what happens when people find out they have a limited time to live. Many finally start living well. They simplify their lives, spend time with those they love, slow down and get around to doing many things they had put off.” 

So that’s our topic for the day.

Taken from 'Tibetan Book of Living and Dying’ by Sogyal Rinpoche and ‘From Beginning to End - the Rituals of Our Lives’ by Robert Fulghum.

Show Notes 

I’m looking forward to this show because we are planning to discuss the two most taboo subjects in the US, and those are religion and politics. Well I’m not so sure we will actually talk about religion or politics but about why we say we can’t talk about them.

Terry Hershey is with me today and Terry is quite passionate about both politics and religion. Yet, he is fully aware of the deep-seated issues around both topics. As a public speaker he faces this issue every time he stands up on a podium. When he speaks to a religious audience he must be careful to speak in THEIR religious language or risk being sacrificed on the altar of heresy. When he speaks to the public at large he must be ever so cautious not to offend someone that does not agree with the politics he is so deeply passionate about. And he is most passionate about both religion and politics. 

So… let’s just jump right into the topic.

My special guest today is Wendy Newman who has been involved in the study of dating and relationships for a couple of decades.

Wendy Newman is a media-celebrated author, speaker, and a dating, sex and relationship expert who’s led hundreds of workshops, and has helped over 50,000 women internationally. She helps women to understand men, dating, sex, and partnership of all kinds.

Wendy is a compassionate fellow dater who navigated her way through 120 first dates before meeting her partner, Dave, lucky #121. They live in San Francisco.

Her book, 121 First Dates is a really fun and ultra informing read. It is part juicy tell-all and part anti-rules dating guide. It’s been optioned for a Hollywood film. 

Enough with the introduction, let’s get to now Wendy Newman and her expert insights into dating and what women and men need to know about each other, before, during and after dating.

Show Notes 

On today’s podcast I plan to be perhaps be just a bit controversial by challenging one of our society’s prime objectives—personal growth. In truth, this may be a follow up to the show we did with my son on the tension between personal improvement and personal contentment.

My question, I guess, is this: does there ever come a time in life when you are done growing? Do you ever get to “arrive” and be done with this exhausting effort “to be the best you, you can be?”

I can put the blame on my thoughts on author Neil Gaimen who wrote this in his poem After Silence:

And somebody has to say that we
never need to grow forever
. That
we, like the trees, can reach our full growth,
and mature, in wisdom and in time,
that we can be enough of us…
Who’ll whisper it:
We’re done. We grew. Enough.

Neil Gaimen struck on chord that has been ringing in my ears for some time now: that our obsession with “growth” comes from an almost unhealthy dissatisfaction with ourselves. 

Why do I have to be the best Charlie I can be? Why can’t I be, just Charlie?

I heard an interview with B.B. King when he said to up and coming blues guitarists: “Quit trying to be the best one, just try to be a good one.”

My special guest today is Terry Goldfarb, a networking special who is going to show us “how you will never have to look for a job again.” Now In know that is a bold statement but after spending a couple hours with Terry I get it.

First of all, finding a new job is much more about relationships than it is about resumes. Not what you know as much as who you know.

With more than 40 years experience in leading people in search of a new job, Terry Goldfarb comes with boatloads of experience as well a creative ideas about the whole job search process.

Terry is a networking specialist that puts a whole different spin on networking and finding a job… at any age. Her process works… if you take the time to work it. It is not easy, but it is virtually guaranteed—well at least to the degree you can guarantee anything.

So, without any further introduction let’s bring on Terry Goldfarb about proven, creative, and effective new ideas about how to find a job.

Today my guest is our friend, Terry Hershey and do we have a bold subject today: It called “Instructions for Living.” Don’t worry; we’re using Instructions taken from another author. Instructions from Terry and me… hmmm.

For those of you that are not familiar with Terry Hershey, he is the author of 17 books (with a new one coming out in the Fall), he’s a sought after public speaker, and an award winning landscape architect of English Country Gardens.

In January of this year, one of America’s greatest contemporary poets, Mary Oliver, died. Terry and I plan to chat about a line from the poem “Sometimes” in her latest collection titled Red Bird. The line from the poem is this: “Instructions for Living a Life: Pay Attention, Be Astonished and Tell About It.”

So let’s bring on Terry Hershey to chat about paying attention, being astonished, and then telling about it.

My guest today is Sanford Coggins, Founder and CEO of VisionWise Capital, a company focused on providing private investors access to commercial real estate opportunities. VisionWise Capital controls $70M of real estate assets since its start-up in 2013.

Check out some of Sanford’s impressive credentials:

Sanford has a unique background as a Commercial Real Estate Broker/Principal, with 25 years as a Wealth Advisor. He worked for 16 years as Vice President, Wealth Management Advisory at Merrill Lynch, where he managed over $100M in client assets.

Sanford earned Merrill Lynch’s Lifetime Achievement Award for leadership and excellence.

But today, oddly enough, we are not going to talk about investing. Instead I want to chat with Sanford about the nearly forgotten value of honor. Character values, such as honor, seem to have been replaced by a new version of “Success” which is rooted primarily in financial attributes.

Sanford is a man with a strong personal code of honor, which guides his mental, and physical behavior daily. As a man committed to the biblical text, he tries to maintain those principles regularly.

So let’s bring on Sanford Coggins to chat with us about the disappearing value of honor.

Since Charlie is in Africa this week working with Wells of Life Charity again, we thought we'd repeat one of our favorite recent episodes where Charley interviews his son, Austin Hedges, starting catcher for the San Diego Padres.  His insights on achieving your goals are great (while trying to stay grounded and who you are). And the interplay between proud father and loving son are priceless.

YIPPIE! This is our 100th show on The Next Chapter with Charlie. And it certainly makes the Top Ten list. My guest is flat amazing!

Today’s guest is ideal for our theme of moving on to the next chapter of life. Jennifer Noel Taylor is the author of an upcoming book, Spiritual and Broke: How to Stop Struggling with Money and Live Your Purpose. Jennifer is the CEO of Quantum-Touch, Inc., where she learned that when you follow your heart, doors open almost automatically.

I resonate with Jennifer’s thoughtful quote, “Imagine… if more people did what they love, how much more joyful the world would be.” Her first book was titled, Love Incorporated: The Business of Doing What You Love. Her books Spiritual and Broke, as well as Love Incorporated offer most relevant insight into Your Next Chapter in life. I’m excited to engage in conversation with Jennifer. 

So… let’s bring on Jennifer Noel Taylor and begin our discussion of how to make a living and do what you love.

Show Notes 

As you know, I have been highly impacted by a book from Richard Rohr titled Falling Upward. In this book Rohr emphasizes the distinctive transition from 1st to 2nd Half of Life. In short, the first half is generally triggered primarily by an ego-driven focus of building up your needs for self-esteem and self-importance, which are often referred to ego-driven needs. Rohr points out that this is a most important and necessary part of life because it establishes the confidence and credentials to proceed to vastly meaningful life.

The 2nd half is a transition that most often occurs in in the latter third of life, generally becoming apparent more in the 60’s and early 70’s. We used to call it growing old gracefully but I think it entails so much more. In the 2nd half we can find that we are much less obsessed with building up the ego. We somehow discover contentment with ourselves and find the desire to focus more on soul enriching activities such as service and a willingness to build relationships with people of like-mindedness.

Today Producer Paul and I will banter about the precepts involved in primarily the 2nd half of life as we also explore the more common ego-driven approach of the 1st half.

Boy do we have a special show today. Our guest is one of my very favorite people on the planet. It’s my son, Austin Hedges. Austin is an expert on our subject today, which will be all about the tension between finding personal contentment with your life and the other side of a never-ending desire for self-improvement. Are the two compatible? That’s what we’ll talk about.

You know, I had never even really thought much about the subject until Austin brought it up to me in the last couple of weeks. After a bit of consideration, it truly is quite a vexing tension. I can’t wait to discuss it.

Just briefly, let me explain why I think Austin Hedges happens to be an expert in this subject. Austin’s job description is one in which employees are never supposed to be satisfied or content with their performance. He is a professional athlete as the starting catcher for the San Diego Padres. Improvement is always expected. Is it possible for a professional athlete to be content and still seek to improve?

Let’s see what Austin has to say.

I am really looking forward to our show today because we are about to take a direction that we have never before broached. We have with us relationship expert and author, Elliott Katz and today Elliott and I will have a discussion about his book, Being the Strong Man a Woman Wants.

I have so many questions for Elliott like (a) are women really frustrated about a plethora of weak men running around the dating scene? (b) how does the strong man motif come into play in the 2019, era of the ever-expanding strong women movement? (c) and mostly, what does it actually mean to be a strong man? This is going to be fun!

Elliott Katz is the author of seven nonfiction books and has appeared regularly on radio and television interviews. He teaches the principles in this book to men and women, and speaks at conferences to groups of both men and women.

Elliott’s book has withstood the test of time in that it was first written in 2007, rewritten in 2012 and is still selling today.

Let’s bring on Elliot Katz to discuss his potentially controversial book, Being the Strong Man a Woman Wants.

SHOW NOTES

Let me state up front. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE EPISODES.

Today marks the first time in two years of podcasting that we will do a show on planning for the New Year of 2019. And now it is two consecutive weeks. That’s kind of surprising since much of my past has been about Life Planning yet we have not produced a single show on that topic. And today our approach to life planning may be strikingly new for most of our listeners but it is a process I have used most of 2018 and I have found it quite gratifying as well as productive.

In order to help set us straight on this unusual path I am with my special friend and spiritual guide Taryn Voget. As a busy Executive Coach, entrepreneur and author of the delightful book, Trust Fall, Taryn is full of out of the box thinking when it comes to most matters in life and life planning.

I asked Taryn to write a brief paragraph on her thoughts toward New Year’s planning and these are the provocative words she wrote:

Many of us push ourselves to continually grow and expand.  But what if we don’t need to work so hard? What if life knows exactly where to find us to deliver the experiences we need for our own evolution? And what if there is no real action necessary on our part other than to be more aware of life’s bigger plan? This podcast explores new ideas about our own evolution and how life is here to serve our highest destiny and greatest expansion…always.

So let’s all be ready to have our traditional view of life planning challenged by the insightful and innovative thoughts of Taryn Voget.

Show Notes 

You know, at this time of year most everyone will be blogging and podcasting in some form on New Year’s Resolutions or Goals. As much distaste as I have for the idea of New Year’s Resolutions, mostly because they rarely make any difference in your life, I think The Next Chapter would be remiss if we failed to address the subject.

I find the bulk of my reluctance to embrace the notion New Year’s Resolutions has to do with the notion that these goals are most often about accomplishments that may or may not have anything to do with internal realities like character or personal identity issues. Basically, what I am saying is that, with New Year’s Resolutions, we can fall into a trap of focusing on what we do rather than who we are.

Today my conversation is with my good friend, Terry Hershey, who has made the “who you are” question the focus of his vocation. As an avid reader, author, renowned public speaker, and life coach Terry is as close an expert on this subject as one can be.

So let’s bring on Terry Hershey to enlighten us on this most important subject of Identity Processes over New Year’s Resolutions.

 Today my special guest is Adrian Laurentiu who comes to us all the way from Uganda, Africa. He is the Country Operations Manager for the NGO Wells of Life and has committed his life to public service of humanity. Although Adrian is from Romania and has Bachelor degree in Music and a Masters degree in International Relations and Diplomacy and is currently working on a PhD African Political Geography, Adrian’s primary desire in life is to serve humanity in Africa.

So today’s question is why does Adrian give up the chances of a potentially lucrative career in International Relations to work in Africa for a low paying non-profit?

Show Notes 

Today I plan on doing another solosode with Producer Paul on a subject I wrote on a blog a few months ago, which was titled “The Thrill of Not Knowing.” The ever increasing popular speaker and writer Jordan Petersen once asked the question “What is your friend: the things you know, or the things you don't know?” 

I really like that question because I so strongly believe that it is “what I don’t know” that keeps fulfilled. I am an explorer, a wanderer, and an experimenter. 

So you can see why I so resonate with Jordan Peterson’s quote above. My greatest friend is indeed “what I don’t know.”

I wonder, is this true for you as well? I have a feeling that curiosity and discovery are embedded in our DNA as human beings. How else can you explain the exponential growth in technology, the sciences and even the arts as we venture into that “galaxy far, far away”?

And then we have the all too familiar dialogue that opens the Star Trek series:

Space, the final frontier
These are the voyagers of the Starship Enterprise
Its five years mission
To explore strange new worlds
To seek out new life
And new civilizations
To boldly go where no man has gone before

Wow. The very statement gives me Goosebumps. And it has been true for just about as long as mankind has been around. As a species, we are wanderers and explorers seeking out strange new worlds.

So let’s bring in Producer Paul to talk a bit about this stuff.

Today we are in for a treat with my special guest Peter Ashworth. Bear with me as his introduction requires a bit more time than normal. That’s because Peter is far from normal.

Peter Ashworth is a 30-year veteran of creating companies and organizations. He is highly inspired every day to help others. He is currently the CEO and Founder of Live Possible | Fearless Life, an organization that helps people live their greatest potential.

Now this is really cool. Peter has just recently launched The Fearless Life Program, for those suffering from the debilitating effects of anxiety. As someone who has experienced this level of anxiety personally, I’m gonna be most interested in discovering more about Peter’s new program.

Did you know that Anxiety Disorders affect the lives of one in five people in North America? Peter’s Fearless Life program is a new, science-based, guided approach to killing anxiety. Fearless Life incorporates the amazing new breakthrough science of neuroplasticity, which we will talk about later. 

Peter is also an Executive and Mindset Coach, which we will discover more in the show. An interesting note is that Peter played a role in the founding of Wells of Life, the charity that I am so deeply involved with. 

Finally, Peter is a husband, father of 2 highly accomplished college-athletes, a fitness nut, an outdoor adventurer, and an artist.

So… before we run out of time why don’t we get Peter on the mic as we discuss, among other things, personal life design and strategies you might use to create your Next Chapter.
