Pat McNamara spent 22 years in the United States Army working in the premier special missions unit building a reputation as an impeccable marksman. His experience quickly taught him that there is more to tactical marksmanship than merely squeezing the trigger. A great show to close season 6, Pat covers how we can all habitually become the Agent in Charge of our own personal protection detail and take charge of our own lives. How does Pat like to describe what he does? Pat wrote a book about the philosophies of a Sentinel. What's it means to be a true Sentinel? Be the Agent in Charge of your own personal protection detail. What's the biggest concern with our distraction/addiction to the screen on the street? The 45-degree syndrome. Pat explains complacent adaptation. Does Pat still plan around his whiteboard each day? Pat always has a plan for what's going to happen that day. Is he very ritualised? That moment after 22 years in Special Operations when he said: "I'm out." What was it like the next day looking in the mirror and no longer being in special ops? He said to his son "I don't love you, I am in love with you" he cried, and Pat said, "this thing is defeating me." How does he feel today when he hears that story? Does Pat carry regret? Pat met a new partner who was the catalyst to his new persona. What did his partner do that gave him the fresh start? 48-year-old Pat was in a bad place, family, booze, lost his gig, he started a blaze. What did he do? Three words Pat uses a lot "attitude, aptitude and desire." How does that show up in his day? What's his self talk in extreme situations when it's all going down? When in a military situation, looking to calm himself, what's Pat's self talk? What's a flat range mindset or mentality? Pat had to learn tact as a leader. What lesson helped? How Pat is a walking contradiction, loving life, and getting after it. Pat's parents supported his creative endeavours. How specifically did they do that? What song could we play that lyrically best represents Pat as a man or best tells his story. "To be prepared against surprise is to be trained.

James Clear writes a hugely popular blog and is the author of the best-seller, Atomic Habits. Book sales surpassed 1 million this year. James writes about the habits of human potential to find out how can we live better. We discuss the habits and rituals of athletes, artists and business leaders and tease out the common characteristics that make people the best at what they do. Atomic Habits is a proven framework to improve ourselves every day, which is essential to get your mojo working!   When James started his blog, he said he felt like an imposter. Did he feel the same way at any point writing this book? In the book, James mentioned he was creating small habits to help him fulfil his potential. Has he? Has James broken through his own plateau of latent potential? How do good habits reinforce our identity? How do I become the kind of person who would? Does the reinforcement of identity then cascade over to other areas of your life to create new good habits? What’s the hardest thing to pin down about bad habits? Once established habits stick; why do bad ones stick more than good ones? Why should we score habits? What’s batching? The aggregation of marginal gains Scale a habit down Creating momentum when creating a new habit Designing our environment to make success easier. Is where, as important as what or why? Is James a minimalist? Does he subscribe to that sort of ideal? Outcomes are the lagging measures of your habits, the accumulation of bad habits. James discusses how and why we should fall in love with boredom? What’s the difference between motion vs action? The higher the friction, the less likely that lousy habits form Why we have to be willing to experiment At the very end of the book, James thanks his wife Kristy for believing in him. Did he lack some self-belief?   LINKS   James Clear website JamesClear.com   Atomic Habits book https://jamesclear.com/atomic-habits   Athletic Greens https://athleticgreens.com/us   The Mojo Radio Show website themojoradioshow.com The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter https://twitter.com/tmrspod   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

John Zeratsky, a former designer at YouTube and Google, became obsessed with the idea of redesigning time. He is the bestselling author of Make Time: How to Focus on What Matters Every Day. He also writes for the Wall Street Journal, TIME, HBR, Wired, Fast Company, and teaches at Harvard. Make time is not about crushing your to-do list, optimising every hour, or maximising personal productivity. It's about creating time for your priorities by rethinking our constant busyness and distraction.   What brings John to Australia and Sydney? What's the best story someone has told John about getting out of the Infinity Pool? Why are we blaming technology for our problems with attention? For many, it's a fear of missing out, FOMO, what's the solution to FOMO? Does John ever catch himself wading in the Infinity Pool and think "Wait, I'm the Make Time guy? John was a self-described nerd at school; what would he say to students at a high school? We should use technology to support connection and not replace it. Are we losing connection? An example of someone who makes time and has the discipline to get out of the Infinity Pool. Is the constant noise around us impacting our ability to focus and, in fact, costing us time? Why does John believe productivity leads to stress? Go faster so we can do more, why that seems to be a false productivity myth. Has John ever been perceived or felt like a perfectionist? Many people seem to lack the willpower to stay the course. What are our limits with willpower? How should we measure the success of time? We all have a to-do list as our default. What's the opposing view to that default? What does John's daily planner look like? Is it paper-based or screen, and what's the breakdown and structure? Is Twitter John's distraction kryptonite?     LINKS   John Zeratsky ohnzeratsky.com   John Zeratsky on Twitter https://twitter.com/jazer?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor   Maketime blog https://maketime.blog   The Mojo Radio Show on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter https://twitter.com/tmrspod   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

Leif Babin served 13 years in the US Navy. As a platoon commander in SEAL Team Three's Task Unit Bruiser, he planned and led major combat operations in the Battle of Ramadi. Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War. He is the recipient of the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and a Purple Heart. He is a co-author of #1 NY Times bestseller, Extreme Ownership: How US Navy SEALs Lead and Win. He is also the co-founder of Echelon Front, a company that helps build high-performance corporate teams. Here's what we cover with Leif.   When people meet Leif for the first time, how does he like to explain what he does? Charlie Sheen actually impacted his decision to be a SEAL. What was it that drove Leif to sign up? Was the book, The Dichotomy of Leadership, written to balance out Extreme Leadership? The cover of The Dichotomy of Leadership is black and white, but it's not. What are the grey areas? The Dichotomy of Leadership is a balance. What's balance look like, and what are we looking for? Leaders can get out of balance. How does a leader know they are actually in balance? As a SEAL platoon commander, what were Leif's greatest leadership strengths? How does a leader find calm and space in order to make the right decision in battle? Did Leif have a process or a totem to change from being a Navy SEAL to being a husband and a dad? What attributes as a person is Leif trying to see reflected in his children? If Leif could go back and serve again, what one lesson would he employ? How is ambiguity down the ranks a failure of leadership? How does a leader ensure that the commander's intent is understood to the degree that can be executed? What separated Leif and the other 17 men who did not get rolled back in SEAL training? What song is the soundtrack for Leif to go to battle? What has the Muster taught Leif about his own leadership style?   Jocko Podcast https://jockopodcast.com   Echelon Front website https://echelonfront.com   The Australian Muster DECEMBER 4-5, 2019 - Sydney https://extreme-ownership-muster.myshopify.com   Support the show on Patreon. https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   Top 10 Cowbell songs of all time https://ultimateclassicrock.com/cowbell-songs/   Athletic Greens https://athleticgreens.com/us   The Mojo Radio Show Rocktober https://www.themojoradioshow.com/rocktober-2019.html   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/     The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

How does Jocko bring the mission to the Muster to ensure everyone at the Muster is on point? Is a great leader a curious person? We describe the character of Lieutenant General Sean MacFarland, retired 3 star General who led Jocko. Is a Red Team a tactic to employ to find weaknesses or potential breaches in your plan? Does Jocko debrief each day of the Muster? What does his own debrief look and sound like? The recurring theme from attendees at the Muster about leadership or company culture? The sweet spot between micromanagement and hands-off leadership styles Since publishing Dichotomy of Leadership, have any of his ideologies changed on leadership? Did Jocko tell himself a story that held him back in your own life? Detach emotionally. Does that sometimes cause friction in your relationship with his wife or kids?

So many who serve their country return to civilian life and fall into darkness. What's the critical ingredient that shows them the light? To Jocko's teammates who died in combat, in a quiet moment, what does he say to them? The "Discipline Equals Freedom" mantra, what is the dichotomy in that simple statement?   LINKS   Jocko Podcast https://jockopodcast.com   Echelon Front Website https://echelonfront.com   The Australian Muster DECEMBER 4-5, 2019 - Sydney https://extreme-ownership-muster.myshopify.com   Support the show on Patreon. https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   Top 10 Cowbell songs of all time https://ultimateclassicrock.com/cowbell-songs/   Athletic Greens https://athleticgreens.com/us   The Mojo Radio Show Rocktober https://www.themojoradioshow.com/rocktober-2019.html   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/     The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

Philip McKernan, the modern-day philosopher of the human experience, is a guy who truly wants to get behind the curtain to help us seek real clarity and move past our roadblocks. Philip gets beyond the seen and unseen blocks in our minds to develop a clear path to our dreams. He believes the way to a happy and fulfilling life is through the meaning we derive in life through our work, our relationships, and the most important relationship of all, the relationship with one's self.   When people ask Philip what he does, how does he like to reply? If I ask his wife, Pauline, what he does, what would she say? His Mum said that even at a young age, people would come to Philip to help them sort out particular problems - why? What is the sense Philip gets when someone isn't truthful to themselves? What does he feel? Is there a difference between hearing and listening? When someone answers a question, Philip gets a sense there is more that they are not saying. How does he know? Is dissension from the right place valuable? Philip felt he wasn't heard as a child. How is he going about making sure his children feel they are honestly heard? By not showing vulnerability as parents are we being of a disservice to our kids? What story did Philip tell himself that held him back in his own life? Are we seeing and having less clarity due to distractions and the pace of life? Is our busyness leading to loneliness? Do we use other people as an excuse not to do what matters? Why our greatest gift lies right next to our deepest wounds Are people terrified of meeting themselves? How do we know what to trust in ourselves? Where is the intersection of trust and intuition? It's not just The 5 Regrets of the Dying; it's also the living with regrets. Has Philip ever faced his mortality? What scares Philip? How has Philip's One Last Talk changed in the last year? How has Philip simplified his life in the last 100 days?   LINKS   Philip McKernan website https://philipmckernan.com/about/   One Last Talk https://onelasttalk.com   Support the Show on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   Top 10 Cowbell songs of all time https://ultimateclassicrock.com/cowbell-songs/   Athletic Greens https://athleticgreens.com/us     The Mojo Radio Show Rocktober https://www.themojoradioshow.com/rocktober-2019.html   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/     The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

He has experienced physical and mental weakness, depression, insecurity, crippling anxiety, addiction and bankruptcy. Jay is a guy who has been through a lot and genuinely wants to share what he knows to help us get our mojo working.   How should we be thinking about using exercise? We train for lots of reasons, but not true health and wellness. How should we measure wellness? Bruce Lee said "Before I studied the art, a punch to me was just like a punch, a kick just like a kick. After I learned the art, a punch was no longer a punch, a kick no longer a kick. Now that I've understood the art, a punch is just like a punch, a kick just like a kick." What’s a punch for Jay? Jay's a fan of Essentialism by Greg McGowan. When he walks into the gym, what's the non-negotiable essential? How important is community or connection for the longevity of life?

Evan Hafer is a former Green Beret (U.S. Army Special Forces) with multiple combat tours. He loves his coffee, and he loves to help veterans. Evan founded Black Rifle Coffee Company (BRCC) to supply a premium, roast-to-order coffee to the working man. He wanted a profession that merged his true passions - his love of country, love of his community, and love for great coffee. Now serving one million tons of coffee beans a year, BRCC wants to hire 10,000 U.S. veterans. This episode is an epic start to Rocktober.   How does Evan like to explain what he does? Evan has used the term Vetreprenuer, what is that? Why BRCC? What's the point of difference? What's a mission plan and how does Evan execute a mission plan at BRCC? When does Evan check in with himself on the delivery of his mission? When Evan left government service, he wrote himself a personal mission statement. How has he executed it? Evan will change tactics but never quits the mission. What's the mission and how imbedded is it in the culture? In the CIA, there were mission first guys, and me first guys, and some in-between. What does Evan see in business today? Mat Best said that BRCC openly promotes the mission outward as much as inward. Is this a strategy or just SOP? Evan created a company culture where civilians have to adapt to a military-style of operation. How do civilians adapt? Are candour and attitude a vital ingredient of the BRCC culture and is it a principal value for Evan personally as a leader? Evan's Grandfather, a WW2 hero, was an inspiration to him. What does he draw as inspiration from his granddad? If Evan could sit with his granddad at Thanksgiving dinner and ask him a question, what would he want to know? Evan has been known to work 24hr stretches in the trenches at BRCC The moment in the Northern Idaho backwoods where Evan decided to he wanted to serve? What did the wilderness teach Evan as a kid? Going CHIPS IN. Did that cut off Evan's option to retreat?       LINKS Black Rifle Coffee Company https://www.blackriflecoffee.com   Evan Hafer on Linked In https://www.linkedin.com/in/evan-hafer-984b3296/   Guy Downes at Office Guy Cartoons helps you think and talk, using simple cartoons www.officeguycartoons.com   Mr T stay humble, keep your feet on the ground https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6581135160375332864/   James Kerr interview on The Mojo Radio Show https://www.themojoradioshow.com/ep-232-james-kerr.html   See that man in the Green Beret https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nh8sZ0P-8mw   The Asking Leader by Mike Logan  https://www.amazon.com/Asking-Leader-busy-manager-answers/dp/0646803336   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

When life became a struggle for Chris Ashenden, founder of Athletic Greens, he attacked it like any other problem. He compiled a list of things that make him happy, then made sure to do them every day. For Chris, the list included dancing, being with dynamic people, sunlight on his face, intense exercise, and excellent nutrition. A native of New Zealand, Chris is passionate about health, happiness, personal growth and leadership in an entrepreneurial setting. He started Athletic Greens to solve his health problems. It's now the all-in-one supplement that industry experts swear by as their nutritional insurance policy. Here's what we cover with Chris in this show.   Why start Athletic Greens? There were other greens in the category at that time, why Athletic Greens? What does Chris wish he'd known when he began the journey to create the business? What mission did Chris have in mind when creating the company? Why are macro-nutrients the next frontier? What lengths do Athletic Greens reach to optimise the performance of the product? Why over-engineer the product formula? Does Chris continue to tinker with and improve the formula? So much is focussed on weight loss. Should we focus on areas like energy and our libido which are often dismissed? Chris is a very generous guy. Where does that come from? Has Chris intentionally focussed on building relationships? What lights Chris up? Training, working out, movement, being active - what's Chris's take on fitness? Are activities like dancing considered to be a part of our weekly exercise plan? Belly fat or as it is known the cortisol band won't go away with exercise, what's happening there? Chris went through a bout of depression. Did he know but was not willing to admit it to himself, or was he simply not in tune with what it felt like to be depressed? Chris has to really work on switching off his thinking brain, how is that working for him? Conforming and dissension. Is that a part of the Chris mindset?   LINKS Athletic Greens https://athleticgreens.com/us   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

Dov Baron is an independent leadership advisor to the UN and has been featured on Oprah, Ellen, CNN, Fox, CBS, Larry King, NY Times, and The Wall Street Journal. Born in a ghetto in northern England - alcohol, addiction, and violence surrounded Dov. As a best-selling author and one of Inc. Magazine's Top 100 Leadership Speakers, Dov works with companies all over the globe to develop purpose-driven leadership and cultural strategies using his unique approach to leadership.     When people ask Dov what he does, how does he like to reply? Gallup engagement says only 24% of people are engaged in their work - why? A purpose-focused organisation is built around a leader who eats, sleeps, and breathes their purpose Is it the owner/leaders job to create the purpose? True leaders show real vulnerability. We discuss an example of how that manifests itself in the work environment. Dov’s hierarchy of who he serves, and why his wife is 5th on the list? Dov left his wife and 2-year-old daughter and moved countries. How did he reconcile with his daughter? To lead others, first, we must lead ourselves. Are we not leading ourselves? Dov does not like other peoples rules. What are some of his rules to live by? Is there a role for dissension in his process? How has Dov's ideals of leadership changed in the last few years? What’s a personal rule Dov, has recently changed that has had a profound impact on him as a man? While free climbing Dov had a bad accident and it did not change his life. Why? What’s a choice point? How do we stay the course?

Mat Best is a former U.S. Army Ranger who was deployed five times to Iraq & Afghanistan. Mat created his first YouTube video in 2012, and now his social media presence has accumulated to more than 3 million subscribers with hundreds of millions of views. Mat is the co-founder of three successful businesses: Black Rifle Coffee, Leadslingers Whiskey, and Article 15 Clothing. He co-produced the independent feature film Range 15, and last week hit the NYTimes bestseller list with his new book, Thank You For My Service. Here's what we cover with Mat in this informative yet very entertaining interview.   When people ask Mat what he does, how does he like to reply? What did Mat learn about himself by writing the book? Ryan Munsey said he always asks himself, "what is the author trying to say?" What was Mat trying to say? For who is the book written? Does Mat remember first thinking he would use humour to not take life too seriously? How did Mat feel inside when he heard his brother had cancer? What’s Gallows Humour? In a fire fight when the action is over, the adrenaline dump takes hold of you. How did Mat deal with that adrenaline dump? Mat was obsessed with the act of war. What was that addiction? Did the experience of war ever sit deep in his soul waiting to come to the surface? The moment when two buddies were severely injured, and Matt comes to understand true brotherhood. Has Mat found that same feeling outside of the military? At Arlington Cemetery Mat, buried Brem and Baraza. What values does he take from the memory of these two heroes? Is Mat the sort of guy who has a vision of what he wants to do next? With his light-hearted approach to situations, life, and leadership roles, where is the sweet spot? With Mat’s carefree black humour approach to life, did he ever find he had a hard time taking orders or respecting command? Does boredom fuel his creativity… video, movies, coffee, merchandise design, books? What is Mat’s work ethic like today? Focus, discipline, planning? From the age of 17 to 23, Mat was a Ranger, that was his identity. What's his identity today? The mission behind BRCC? Can we create true camaraderie in our companies that give us the same camaraderie Mat had in the military? How has he embedded the mission through every level of the company? Many people misrepresent what military culture is all about. What is it about? Mat is fourth-generation military; did he feel any pressure with that legacy? If Mat had another go after leaving the military, how would he approach it? How would he course correct? Black Hawk Down, what was it about that film, a scene, a moment that resonated for Mat?   LINKS   Mat Best at Black Rifle Coffee Company https://www.blackriflecoffee.com/pages/mat-best-1   Mat on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/mat_best_official/?hl=en   Mat’s book "Thank You for My Service”. www.thankyouformyservice.com   Mat on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCre2GibO9Vdb3C59VzDsFxQ   The Mojo Radio Show on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter https://twitter.com/tmrspod   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

Ben Baker - author, keynote speaker, and consultant - helps develop stories for clients in compelling ways. Every brand (personal or company) needs a unique story that should engage their audience, draw them in, and help them understand the value of the brand. Ben’s job is to help us find that story and tell it in ways that are compelling, authentic, and memorable. In this show, we cover the essential characteristics of a great marketer and how we, as a brand, can use our story to stand out. Here's what we cover.    When people ask Ben what he does, how does he like to reply? Are comparisons and our easy access into the world of other people putting pressure on today's worker? “Who I am as a person, and who you are as a person, should not be determined by the things in our lives.” For many, do things define their brand? What does the future look like for personal branding? "Why fit in if you were born to stand out," Dr Suess. Is it getting harder to swim against the current and stand out? Growing up, Ben was expected to sit at the table and converse with the friends of his parents. Why does he believe this is valuable? Why do we continuously get disappointed by companies and salespeople who don’t truly listen? What does history tell us about what is likely to happen in the future? What are the key characteristics of a great marketer? How does Ben record his learnings from books, podcasts, blogs, video? Why does Ben choose articles to read more than books? What is Ben still trying to discover about his brand? What is Ben most nervous about today? Was there a moment in time when Ben trusted his voice? When targeting your perfect customer, it’s about focussing on champions. Ben describes a champion. When did Ben last say no? Ben was in a Mastermind, how does that work, what’s the format? How can our mistakes build trust?       LINKS   Ben Baker https://yourbrandmarketing.com/speaking/   History Jonny Ive Look at History YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEW4D_CERkE   The Mojo Radio Show on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter https://twitter.com/tmrspod   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.
