Released Saturday, 9th October 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
I’ll bet there have been times when someone has offered to help you and you declined. You probably said something like, “No, that’s ok I got it.”? Well, why say that? Why we are so reluctant to ask other people for help when we likely could use it? This episode begins with a discussion on why asking for help is hard and yet it is one of the smartest things you will ever do. http://rd.com/advice/relationships/phrases-make-pe…
Your Life is ruled by chance and probability. Yet how much do you understand about them? Ian Stewart knows about them better than most people. Ian is a Professor Emeritus of math at the University of Warwick in England and author of the book Do Dice Play God?: The Mathematics of Uncertainty (https://amzn.to/2MWjer8). Listen as he explains, for example, how a slot machine appears to be “hot” one day but not another. Or, what really determines whether a coin flip will end in heads or tails. And most importantly, how this all applies to you.
When women sit down at a restaurant, where do they typically put their purse? They sling it over the back of the chair or put it on the floor. Listen as I explain why both of those options are really bad ideas that can easily get your identity stolen. I’ll also explain a simple way every woman can secure her purse and never worry again. http://rd.com/advice/travel/purse-theft-safe/
Motivational speakers can be very inspiring – but motivation for you can’t really come from someone else’s story. Susan Fowler, author of the book Master Your Motivation: Three Scientific Truths for Achieving Your Goals (https://amzn.to/2HJneXV) joins me to explain the real science of motivation – and how it works. Listen and discover how to find the motivation that will sustain you to achieve even when times are tough.
