BUSINESS INTERVIEW: How To Win The Now Eric Recker is our guest today on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots Podcast. This is one of those stories that so many of us find ourselves living until a change is forced on us to reassess, pivot and finally start walking the path waiting for us. Eric spent the first half of his life doing what he thought he had to do. Putting his nose down and enduring the grind. But it was never quite enough he wanted more. Through experiences with triathlon, mountain climbing, owning a dental practice with a team of 20, becoming a pilot, and extensive travel, he learned that what he was searching for wasn’t at the top of the mountain. How The Dots Joined Up For Eric Through the COVID-forced closure of Dr. Eric Recker’s dental practice in spring of 2020, he realized he had not been living in the present in his own life. He kept climbing mountains (literally and figuratively) to try to find meaning at the “mountain top,” but then realized what he was searching for wasn’t “out there.” After an extensive time of quiet and reflection, the concept came to Eric. This concept helps people to overcome the “epidemic of distraction” that seems to be impacting us all. Now in the second half of his life, he is committed to helping people learn to live present in their own lives and find a life of fulfilment, not just accomplishment. Through his coaching, speaking, and writing, he is working to help as many people as possible learn to #WINtheNOW. So we all know that the gift of life is in the present, so why do all get so off track when living our own lives? And now he knows this better than most, how does he react when he still finds himself in a headspace nowhere near the present? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Dr Eric Recker.

TOP PRODUCTIVITY & MOTIVATION HACK Welcome to another episode of Join Up Dots, the podcast where we connect the dots to success! Today, we're diving into a fascinating topic: how starting one task can kickstart your motivation and productivity across various areas of your life. Have you ever experienced that amazing boost of energy and drive after tackling unrelated tasks? Well, you're not alone, and there are some psychological reasons behind this phenomenon. First up, we have the Zeigarnik Effect. This intriguing psychological concept tells us that our brains remember uncompleted tasks better than completed ones. So when you start something and leave it hanging, your brain keeps it active in your working memory, creating a mental itch to finish it. As you complete one task, that sense of accomplishment and momentum can inspire you to tackle more. Next, the feeling of achievement plays a significant role. Completing any task, no matter how small, triggers the release of dopamine, the pleasure and reward neurotransmitter. That rush of positivity can motivate you to pursue other goals in different areas of your life. Cognitive priming is another key player. Engaging in a productive activity can tune your brain into a productivity mode, making it easier to transition to other tasks. It's like your brain gets a productivity boost. Psychological flexibility is a fascinating aspect too. When you work on unrelated tasks, you become more adaptable and open to new challenges. Successfully completing tasks in different areas instills confidence and belief in your abilities, fueling your motivation. Don't forget the positive feedback loop. Success breeds success. When you see progress in one area, it can create a snowball effect, pushing you to pursue success in other areas as well. Clearing mental clutter is a bonus. Accomplishing small tasks can reduce stress and mental clutter, giving you clarity and freedom to focus on other activities and goals. And finally, goal-oriented behavior kicks in. Achieving one goal often triggers a goal-oriented mindset. After one success, you're more likely to set and pursue new goals, whether they're related to exercise, work, or personal projects. In summary, starting tasks, even if they're unrelated, can set off a chain reaction of motivation and productivity. It's all thanks to psychological factors like the Zeigarnik Effect, the sense of achievement, cognitive priming, and the positive feedback loop. So, next time you need a boost in motivation, consider starting with a small task – it might just kickstart your productivity in unexpected ways!

MOTIVATION TIME: Believe You Can And You Are Halfway There!

MOTIVATION TIME: Believe You Can And You Are Halfway There! Let's unravel the depth of Theodore Roosevelt's quote: "Believe you can and you're halfway there." Imagine you're embarking on a thrilling adventure – maybe you're climbing a mountain, running a marathon, or starting a new chapter in your life. The journey ahead might seem daunting, full of twists and turns, challenges and uncertainties. But here's where the magic of belief comes into play, just like Teddy Roosevelt pointed out. When you believe in yourself, it's like strapping on a pair of wings that help you soar through the skies of possibility. It's that tiny spark that ignites within you, whispering, "You've got this!"  And that spark, my friend, has the power to light up your entire journey. Think of belief as your secret superpower, your inner compass guiding you through uncharted territories. It's like having a trusty sidekick cheering you on, reminding you that you're stronger, smarter, and more capable than you think. When you wholeheartedly believe you can achieve something, you're setting the stage for success – you're priming your mind to overcome obstacles, conquer doubts, and keep pushing forward. Picture yourself standing at the foot of a colossal mountain. Your goal – reaching the summit – seems like a distant dream. But here's the kicker: if you believe in your ability to climb, if you truly, deeply, unwaveringly believe that you can make it to the top, you've already taken the first step upward. Belief isn't just about blind optimism; it's about tuning into your potential, recognizing your strengths, and realizing that you possess the tools to tackle even the loftiest of goals. It's like having a treasure map that leads you straight to the chest of victory. When you believe, you're telling your mind and your heart, "We're in this together, and we're going places!" The beauty of belief lies in its ability to fuel your determination. It's that extra boost of energy when your legs feel tired, that surge of motivation when the road gets tough. It's a whisper in your ear that says, "You're closer than you think, keep going!" Theodore Roosevelt hit the nail on the head – believing you can is like reaching the halfway point of your journey, because it propels you forward with a force that's unstoppable. So, as you walk the path of your ambitions, remember these words. Embrace that belief, nurture it, and let it guide you. With each step you take, you're not just inching closer to your goal – you're carving a path of determination and courage. Believe you can, and you're not just halfway there – you're already soaring higher than you ever imagined.

PLEASE HELP: Russ Walks The Uk Anticlockwise (FANTASTIC STORY)

PLEASE HELP: Russ Walks The Uk Anticlockwise Welcome to another episode of "Inspirational Journeys." In this episode, we're diving into the captivating life story of Russ Chittenden, a man whose journey has captured the hearts of many. Through his own words, Russ takes us on a remarkable expedition of his experiences and the lessons he's learned along the way. Russ begins his narrative by recounting his origins, having been born in Minster Hospital on the Isle of Sheppey. Although he holds no personal memories of the island, fate would soon guide his family's path towards new horizons. At the tender age of one or two, Russ and his family relocated to Nottingham, a move that marked the beginning of a transformative journey spanning 39 years. Growing up amidst the sprawling expanse of the University of Nottingham's 52-acre sports fields, Russ reminisces about his childhood adventures alongside his siblings. His father's role as head groundsman not only shaped their living situation but also instilled within him a strong connection to the outdoors and the freedom it represents. A house that once stood as their home is now etched into history as a tram line, a poignant reminder of the passage of time. With a chuckle, Russ shares the tale of his unconventional school routine, a "free range" existence reminiscent of unfettered chickens. The daily dinner call echoed through the fields at 5pm, drawing the Chittenden siblings back home like a flock. Russ reveals that even attending school required creative coaxing, including the occasional tractor ride to ensure his presence. Formal education may not have ignited his passion, but these anecdotes paint a vivid picture of a spirited young soul unbounded by convention. As he entered his teenage years, a new chapter unfolded with a move to Aylesbury. This transition, though unintentional, sparked a yearning for exploration and a desire to break free from confinement. This yearning was eventually answered through a bold career shift into the military, granting Russ the opportunity to explore distant lands. The Indian Ocean, the Malacca Straits, and the South China Sea became his maritime playground during a transformative two-year journey post-military service. Russ's versatility shines as he recounts his experiences in home construction, a skill honed before his military tenure. This skill not only left its mark on his native counties but carried him across continents. Stepping foot on African soil and engaging with diverse cultures worldwide, Russ's tale becomes a testament to the unquenchable thirst for discovery. The most poignant facet of Russ's journey comes to light as he reveals his motivations for an extraordinary coastal expedition. This quest, fueled by a desire for boundless existence, now takes on a dual purpose — to uplift fellow citizens who've faced adversity in service to their nation. Russ's heartwarming commitment to giving back underscores the depth of his character. In closing, Russ reflects on the life he's lived thus far, expressing a profound sense of fulfillment. His words resonate with the assurance that if his time were to end tomorrow, his life would be regarded as one richly lived. Interacting with his listeners, he expresses gratitude for the connections made and the shared experiences that make the United Kingdom truly special. With a touch of humor, Russ playfully anticipates his return home, knowing that the allure of the unknown will soon beckon him once more. As we wrap up this episode, we're reminded of the power of a life fully lived, a journey enriched by experiences, connections, and the unwavering pursuit of the next horizon. Thank you for joining us on "Inspirational Journeys." Be sure to tune in next time as we uncover more extraordinary stories of individuals who've embarked on paths less traveled, leaving behind trails of inspiration for us all.

MOTIVATION TIME: Don't Strike When The Iron Is Hot

MOTIVATION TIME: Don't Strike When The Iron Is Hot let's explore the depth of William Butler Yeats' quote: "Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking." Imagine standing in a blacksmith's workshop, watching the craftsman at his anvil. He holds a piece of iron over the fiery forge, waiting for it to reach the perfect temperature. Traditionally, people might say, "Strike while the iron is hot," implying that you should act when conditions are favorable. But Yeats flips the script with his wisdom. He's telling us not to wait for the stars to align, for the perfect moment, or for everything to be just right. Instead, he's saying that we have the power to create those favorable conditions ourselves. Just like the blacksmith doesn't wait for the iron to heat up on its own – he actively makes it hot by striking it with his hammer – we shouldn't wait for the perfect circumstances to start taking action. This quote is a call to action, a reminder that we hold the tools to shape our destinies. It's easy to procrastinate, to put things off until we think the time is right. But Yeats encourages us to be proactive, to take control of our lives and endeavors. If we wait for the "right moment," we might end up waiting forever. Think about learning a new skill. You might think, "I'll start when I have more time," or "I'll wait until I'm more motivated." But Yeats urges us to dive in, to start now, even if it's a small step. By taking action, you're igniting the forge – you're making the iron hot. This philosophy applies to dreams, goals, and aspirations. Don't wait for everything to be perfect; instead, take steps to make things happen.  When you actively engage with your goals, you're putting energy into motion. You're creating momentum that propels you forward, even if the initial progress seems small. The beauty of Yeats' quote lies in its empowerment. It reminds us that we're not at the mercy of external circumstances – we have the ability to shape our circumstances. Like the blacksmith's hammer striking the iron, our efforts can create the heat needed for transformation. So, whether it's pursuing a passion, starting a project, or chasing your dreams, remember Yeats' words.  Don't wait for the "perfect moment"; seize the moment and make it perfect by your actions. Embrace the power to make the iron hot by striking, and watch how your proactive efforts forge the path to success.

MOTIVATION TIME: In The Middle Of Every Difficulty Lies Opportunity

MOTIVATION TIME: In The Middle Of Every Difficulty Lies Opportunity Get ready to be inspired by the timeless wisdom of Albert Einstein's quote: "In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity." Life's like an incredible adventure, a rollercoaster with its exhilarating highs and challenging lows. And when those tough moments hit – those times when you feel like shouting, "Why is this happening?" – that's when Einstein's genius lights the way. Imagine you're on a journey through a dense forest, and suddenly you face a massive boulder blocking your path. You could grumble and turn back, or you could see it as a golden chance. A chance to flex your problem-solving muscles, explore new routes, or simply admire the beauty around you as you find your way. Life's challenges are like those boulders. They might seem daunting, but they're also treasure chests filled with opportunities – exactly what Einstein talked about. Challenges push us beyond our limits, make us think outside the box, and unveil solutions we never dreamed of. It's like life whispering, "Here's a puzzle. Solve it and watch the magic happen!" Remember the first time you rode a bike? It was tricky, with wobbles and tumbles. But guess what? Those falls taught you balance, determination, and the taste of victory when you finally rode without training wheels. Difficulties are like those wobbles – they're disguised as lessons. Even Einstein faced hurdles in science. But he didn't give up; he saw challenges as opportunities to dive deeper, to question assumptions, and revolutionize our understanding of the universe. So, when life throws you a curveball, remember Einstein's words. Look past the struggle, and there's your glimmer of opportunity. It might mean growing stronger, learning something new, or discovering a better way. Just like a phoenix rising, opportunities often bloom from adversity, ready to transform your journey. Within every challenge, you'll find your chance to shine. Transform obstacles into stepping stones, rewrite your story with resilience and triumph. Embrace those tough times – they're the canvas for your victories. Just as Einstein's theories reshaped our world, your life can be a masterpiece painted with the colors of challenges conquered and opportunities seized.  So, get ready to embrace the wisdom of Einstein, and let's turn difficulties into stepping stones towards an extraordinary life. Share this podcast with everyone you know – because in every challenge, there's a world of opportunity waiting to be uncovered.
