Even the best of us get tripped up by the things we preach about regularly. And today, I got tripped up, but I quickly caught myself, made the necessary adjustments, and then soldiered on.My final conclusion on time is this: the only time you truly don't have time to do something is when you're dead. Peace,ClayTip Jar

Nothing drastic has happened. But I have had to make some changes to one of my projects.In this episode, I'll update you on what's going on in the soulcruzer creatorverse.As always, thanks for listening.Peace and love,ClayTip Jar

Do you consider yourself a good listener? If so, how do you know you're a good listener? The thing is most of us don't really listen. We half-listen.While we should be listening fully, we are instead, thinking about our reply or listening for a pause so we can jump in with our stuff.I set a listening challenge for you on this episode. Let me know how you get on.And as always, if you like this episode, consider sharing it with a friend.

You might recognize the title as something Popeye used to say when he got fed up and was ready to take charge of the situation he was in. This episode is that moment for you, where you recognize you are who you are and that's all that you are and that's a good thing. It's the first step to liberation.Shoutout to Lolly Daskal for providing the inspiration for this episode. Lolly is the founder of Lead from Within, a global leadership consultancy based out of New York.Thanks for listening and sharing the podcast with your network, much appreciated.Peace and love to you.Support independent podcasting.
I've talked about this a number of times in the past, but, you know, it never hurts to remind ourselves of life's little truisms that help us ease our minds and boost our mental health.I know stoicism is in fashion at the moment with the likes of Ryan Holiday and Tim Ferris waxing lyrical about it, but that's not why I'm talking about it. I've been a practitioner of stoicism for a long time. It helped me through my army days and has continued to be my grounding philosophy of life, along with existentialism. I read a piece on High Existence that prompted me to talk about stoicism on the podcast today.If you're into audio, make sure you subscribe to my newsletter where I share curated and created audio stories, personal narratives, found sounds, and social radio.Peace and love to you.Support independent podcasting.Clay
This piece from Anne Alexander really resonated with me. I'm guilty of burning the candled at both ends as well as multitasking like a fiend, two things that are not so good for our attention, which turns out, is a superpower if you cultivate it.I'm looking forward to reading Peak Mind, by DR Amishi Jha a neuroscientist who has done extensive research on how our attention works. She shares a great beginner's technique for starting a mindfulness practice. It's called STOP. I'll walk you through it on the podcast.Thanks for listening and sharing the podcast with your network, much appreciated.Peace and love to you.Support independent podcasting.
Shout out to DR Raman K Attri for providing the inspiration for this cast. You can check out his post Addicted to Success.I've been shuffling about in creative neutral these past couple of months, consolidating my thinking, figuring out what feels right to carry forward into 2022! What? 2022?! Yeah, that's right, I'm already thinking about the gig for next year. I like to start early so I can hit the ground running at the start of the year.I mention starting up Wisdom Radio podcast, but on reflection, I think I'll just keep things simple and podcast from here - soulcruzer.Anyway, thanks for listening and sharing the podcast with your network, much appreciated.Peace and love to you.Support independent podcasting.
We couldn't resist the unseasonably warm weather. So what did we do? We hit the fields of Southam on our way to Napton on the Hill for a thirsty pint.

In this episode, I'm in the hot seat as my friend Cristina unleashes her inner journalist on me to find out what's behind my love of social radio, which has become my latest passion project. I also talk about how I got into Internet radio and my time at Radio Warwickshire. I also reveal my plans for the reboot of the Musical Journey show.
#AudioMo Day 14. I get reacquainted with the Triggering Town.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. - Helen KellerThis quote has been with me for a long time. In my youth, adventure was my north star. I shunned the mundane. I hated the idea of living an ordinary life, doing ordinary things with ordinary people. I joined the military because as the recruitment poster said, “It’s not just a job, it’s an adventure.” Post military, I continued my pursuit of adventure - jumping out of airplanes, rock climbing, mountain climbing, racing down mountains at break-neck speeds on a mountain bike, canoeing, adventure traveling, you name it, I was doing it. I became a thrill-seeking adrenaline junkie. And life was good.At some point, domestic life caught up with me - wife, kids, corporate job. The raging flames of adventure settled down into a smoldering fire on the verge of going out. Over the past decade, I’ve settled into my role as a domesticated primate. I do interesting things. I get a bit of excitement from time to time, but no BIG adventures, no extreme uncertainty with death as a real possibility. I haven’t put my life on the line in ages. I haven’t felt that rush of adrenaline and extreme focus that comes with knowing that one small mistake, one lapse in concentration, could cost me my life.Normal people my age are thinking about retirement or buying that little cottage somewhere in the country where they can settle into old age comfortably and peacefully, entertain the grandkids from time to time, and tranquilly wait for death to come calling.Me, I’m hearing Dylan Thomas whispering in my ear:Do not go gentle into that good night,Old age should burn and rave at close of day;Rage, rage against the dying of the light.And I’m thinking how can I turn up the heat and go out with bang instead of a whimper.

#AudioMo In the last couple of days I've been able to get into flow state. I love that feeling. It's awesome. So what have I been doing to get into flow state?
I've been threatening to go on hamburger adventure for many years, now I think the time is ripe. We've been cooped up for a year dealing with this whole pandemic thing and now that we're finally allowed back out, I'm ready to hit the road. In the episode, we lay down the foundation of our burger rating system.
#AudioMo - a 30-day audioblogging challenge I've been looking forward to all year. And the timing couldn't have been more perfect.  If you're an audio freak or geek, or new to podcasting and have been sitting on the fence about whether or not to start a podcast of your own, #AudioMo is the perfect vehicle to kickstart your podcasting ambitions. Doing something for 30 days straight is a good way to start a new habit. Plus the #AudioMo community is super supportive.I challenge you to #AudioMo
After a year of Zoom meetings, we now need to relearn how to look people in the eyes in order to establish trust.
 In which I discover I can't do it all, much to my dismay.
I'm feeling a little lighter today. Maybe because it's Thursday and the workweek is coming to a close. Or maybe it's because I'm lifting heavy weights again after a year off because of the pandemic. Doesn't matter. What matters had a good lunch session on soulcruzer on the radio, which by the way, I think I'm going to rebrand to an old brand I use to have sport - The Musical Journey show. I explain more in the audio:
