How to Matter Podcast

HTM 122 – Friends | Partners | Lovers

August 28th, 2016 by Dr. Gary Crow

Play

In episode 122 of How To Matter, the highjackers have captured the microphone. James, Kate, Allison, and Paul have taken over the podcast for a special episode of How To Matter. They share their thoughts about what makes marriage tick and what sometimes stops its ticking. It is an episode well worth a listen and a few minutes contemplation. To make a difference with people who make a difference to us often needs to start at home.

In episode 121 of How To Matter, James and Ava have returned to offer their perspectives on wisdom and on beer and pizza. It would be good if one could simply take one’s choice but alas, life does not quite work that way. Listen to hear how this quandary gets resolved.

In episode 120 of How To Matter, it’s time for another trip on The Success Train. Is this a new route? Are you in for a new experience? The bad news is that success is always down the same road. The good news is that success is always down the same road. All aboard. The Success train is pulling out of the station. It’ll be great if you’re not late.

In episode 119 of How To Matter, I look at the keys to being a successful writer. Paul, Tom, and James each provide a perspective with tips about strategies writers can use to get beyond simply staring at the keyboard.

Those same strategies apply to writing the great novel as well as to helping your neighbor, making a difference with people who make a difference to you.

HTM 118 – Survive The Telling

August 20th, 2016 by Dr. Gary Crow

Play

In episode 118 of How To Matter, I focus on the risk we all face of being boring. Whatever our point, our message may not survive the telling. Please listen if you want to avoid being one of the talkers who made a perfect point but no one stuck around long enough to listen or benefit from the wisdom.

HTM 117 – Dark Clouds & Silver Linings

August 17th, 2016 by Dr. Gary Crow

Play

In this belated episode of How To Matter, I admit to being abandoned by my muse but am happy to let you know that there are signs of her return. The question is whether the experience has made me a better person, a better podcaster, someone who is happy for the unhappy experience. It’s that silver lining thing. Does the darkest cloud always have a silver lining? Why don’t you listen to the episode and come to your own conclusion.

HTM 116 – School Bells (xi)

August 11th, 2016 by Dr. Gary Crow

Play

In episode 116 of How To Matter, I conclude the series on helping children with school and learning problems. In this final section, focus is on children who have simply quit caring about school, learning, and too often quit caring about what happens to them. The final step is to skip school, quit going to school and concluding their school days by dropping out. It is a sad ending to a very young journey.

HTM 115 – School Bells (x)

August 10th, 2016 by Dr. Gary Crow

Play

In episode 115 of How To Matter, I continue the series on helping children with school and learning problems. This is the next to the last section of the series. I am thinking about making a single recording that includes all 11 sections of the series, including the last episode. If you are interested in this free recording, please let me know. If there is enough interest, I will produce the recording and make it available on How To Matter. To express your interest, just drop me an e-mail at feedback@HowToMatter.net.

In this episode, focus is on 3 signs of school and learning difficulty. They include children who need constant supervision while doing their school work, children who disrupt the classroom and the activities of other children, and youngsters who feel like the adults at school have it in for him or her. The episode includes tips and suggestions for helping children with these issues.

HTM 114 – School Bells (ix)

August 9th, 2016 by Dr. Gary Crow

Play

In episode 114 of How To Matter, I continue the series on helping children with school and learning problems. In this section, I focus on children who have unusual trouble dealing with criticism, children who always have excuses for their performance difficulties, and children who usually blame others or external circumstances for their problems. Working with these children is both difficult and frequently tedious. In the podcast, I offer some tips and suggestions for helping these young people.

HTM 113 – School Bells (viii)

August 8th, 2016 by Dr. Gary Crow

Play

In episode 113 of How To Matter, I continue the series on helping children with school and learning problems. Focus is on children who get bad grades and those youngsters who have trouble asking for help or refuse the help that is offered. These two signs are intimately connected. Children who get good grades do not need help or more likely have figured out how to get the help they need and where to get it. Children who get bad grades likely are not getting the help they need; and if they don’t know how to get it or refuse offered help, their situation will only get worse. The podcast offers a few suggestions for helping those children.
