Thanks Giving may be a holiday in the US but is a universal opportunity to let those who matter to us know that they do indeed matter. In this episode of How To Matter, the podcast team shares that universal sentiment through a message you will value hearing and one you may want to share with others. Our thanks is extended to you and to all of those who matter to you.
The How To Matter podcast team has a treat for you. This episode includes two audio clips we think you will find thoughtful and will give you a smile. Been There, Done That causes us to consider our perspective on ourselves and our personal world while Animal Crackers is just for fun. It will bring a smile whatever your age, although you may want to share it with your favorite little person.
Ivy takes the lead for this episode of How To Matter. Gary is still away from the How To Matter headquarters, moving into the second half of his audio course. He sent a recording back to the How To Matter podcasting team and Ivy shares it with you in this episode. Relax and enjoy catching up on what Gary is up to at audio school.
Jason moderates this tip filled episode of How To Matter. He brings podcast listeners two segments produced by Paul and James. In the first segment, Paul shares his take on sticking on the horse and staying the course. In the second segment, James advises being close and personal with the brain bank and being sure your account does not get out of balance. Both segments are must listens for those listeners who are committed to their success and to the success of people who matter to them.
The How To Matter team is back with another episode for you while Gary is still off to audio school. Ivy and Justin did such a good job with their first try at producing an episode of How To Matter that the team decided to give them another shot at producing an episode. They have worked with James and Tom to include a piece on writing and with Salli to include her piece on managing the important things in our lives while giving appropriate priority to those things that do not matter as much. At times, good enough is actually good enough. Listen and see what you think about her perspective. After you have had a chance to listen to the episode, we hope you will take a minute to share your thoughts about the episode by shooting an email to us at feedback@HowToMatter.net.
Jason and Ivy have produced a special podcast for you. Paul, James and Sally have all pitched in to help the kids with their first full production. The story starts with “The monkey bridge loomed monstrously between us and success. If perchance you do not know about monkey bridges, picture and learn.” The team is pretty happy with the podcast and sincerely hopes you eenjoy it. The message is certainly worth a serious think.
“If a man is not rising upwards to be an angel, depend upon it, he is sinking downwards to be a devil.” What do you think about this pronouncement from Samuel Taylor Coleridge?
If you are skeptical about this angel thing, consider what George Elliot said, “The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.”
OK, you may still see nothing but sand and are too busy to rise upwards to be an angel. Besides, you’ve never seen an angel and doubt if anyone else has either. Well, it’s just like James Russell Lowell said, “All God’s angels come to us disguised.”
Voltaire added, “It is not known precisely where angels dwell – whether in the air, the void, or the planets. It has not been God’s pleasure that we should be informed of their abode.”
Nonetheless, “Angels descending, bring from above, echoes of mercy, whispers of love.” (Fanny J. Crosby)
It’s like Jean Paul Richter told us, “The guardian angels of life fly so high as to be beyond our sight, but they are always looking down upon us.”
“O welcome, pure-eyed Faith, white-handed Hope, Thou hovering angel, girt with golden wings!” (John Milton, Comus)
