On today’s episode Greg and Brian are discussing how your daily routines are necessary for accomplishing your goals but at the same time can cloud your judgment. People on both ends of the experience scale, meaning people with a very HIGH level of experience and people with a very LOW level of experience, can often fall victim to their own biases. Some of the examples they discuss today include cat ladies, mountain climbers, outlaw motorcycle gangs, and conserving energy versus learning to adapt!Don’t forget to follow us on social media and feel free to reach out to us with any questions!Episode Links Dr. Carlos Show: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXt8U5DZB797pO0b8unFBFgDetect The Wolf: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCallutf0BT2TbRchBFAXIEQBUDO Magazine Article: https://issuu.com/budoweb/docs/martial_arts_magazine_budo_international_411___sep/178?fbclid=IwAR3R0U10tUvgoz2BBfRpAxdFAx46J_-7dN43S8FDi4SI1e2qdnJqBUrlgT4Contact LinksFollow us on FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/HBPRA/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/arcadia_cognerati/YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1S7E4hgSfLVWi4jGlKKqawWebsite: https://www.arcadiacognerati.comTwitter: https://twitter.com/A_CogneratiItunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/left-of-greg-podcast/id1448181902Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1BgPDLkWp5iptfZOnXvSSEMusic from https://filmmusic.io "District Four" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/LeftOfGreg/)
On today’s episode, Greg and Brian are joined by John Carughi, who is usually referred to as the “Weapon Snatcher.”A few months ago John was working a security detail for a news station covering the riots in Seattle when he witnessed a looter break into a police car, steal the rifle from inside and then begin firing the weapon indiscriminately. John immediately sprang into action and took the weapon from the shooters' hands before they could hurt anyone.Only minutes later, John witnessed another rioter steal another rifle from a different police car. John once again stepped in and snatched the rifle out of his hands which was caught on film by the news crew. If you would like to see the video, check the episode details for the link.On the show, John talks about the planning and preparation he did leading up to the events of that day that prepared him for the situation he faced. Stick around until the end where John gets into what he’s been working on since the incident. Episode LinksNews Clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhAdITFgZhkJohn’s Website: https://weapon-snatcher.com Contact LinksFollow us on FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/HBPRA/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/arcadia_cognerati/YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1S7E4hgSfLVWi4jGlKKqawWebsite: https://www.arcadiacognerati.comTwitter: https://twitter.com/A_CogneratiItunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/left-of-greg-podcast/id1448181902Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1BgPDLkWp5iptfZOnXvSSEMusic from https://filmmusic.io "District Four" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/LeftOfGreg/)
On today’s episode, Greg and Brian are talking about a concept called “fake it till you make it” or also known as “acting as if.”Although this concept can be used successfully in certain situations, it can also give you a false sense of confidence in your abilities which can lead to you to “fight outside your weight class.” This way of thinking may also cause you to be more susceptible to confirmation bias.Greg and Brian give several examples of how this type of thinking can affect your performance and they also discuss some of the ways you can get better at spotting people who don’t really know as much as they probably should about an issue.

In today’s episode, Greg and Brian are talking about the importance of understanding the CONTEXT surrounding your observations. This includes all of the information you take in on a daily basis whether that’s from a news article, a conversation you overheard, or a Facebook post from one of your friends. Greg and Brian cover a number of topics today including confirmation bias, how your EGO processes information, and the difference between context and perspective. They also talk about some of the ways that they personally deal with these issues, and they go over some basic strategies on how you can get better at filtering through the massive amount of information you are bombarded with on a daily basis.Follow us on FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/HBPRA/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/arcadia_cognerati/YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1S7E4hgSfLVWi4jGlKKqawWebsite: https://www.arcadiacognerati.comTwitter: https://twitter.com/A_CogneratiItunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/left-of-greg-podcast/id1448181902Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/1BgPDLkWp5iptfZOnXvSSEMusic from https://filmmusic.io "District Four" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/LeftOfGreg/)
