Welcome to the Strive Seek Find Podcast I’m your host, Chance Whitmore.  Life is easy when everything is hitting on all cylinders…  These days it often is not.   This week, as we  return to school I’m reminded of this very fact.    How  we deal with parts of our life being spinning (nearly) out of control will whether we  control the insanity… or  collapse under the strain of a life stretched completely out of shape.  And it  that makes you think. the show (
 I have to say  hearing the phrase “well it’s the new normal”  makes me want to scream.  Not sure why.  Perhaps because we aren’t close to stability or that we are tone deafly marching forward in denial, but either way it has joined my list  of most hated phrases.   So today, rather than claiming things are  back to normal, I thought reminder of where we are at might be in order. the show (
So about that Covid

So about that Covid


It’s been an interesting couple of weeks in the Whitmore Household.  School starts with all the chaos that ensues as we moved from one schedule to five distinctly separate schedule.   At  the best of times it’s a sprint  and worst its  running through the forest at night with your eyes closed. And then the special chaos arrived.   Called to school on day 4 to pick up my daughter  because she wasn’t feeling well.   Normal year no big deal    This year… tested… and positive for Covid.    3 days after my body started to crash..  and my positive test soon followed.  What  followed has made for a discombobulated and interesting week.   So as I sit her on my 7th.. or is it 8th day.. locked in my bedroom  I may sound a little preachy today… take it for what its worth.Support the show (

Bernard Shaw once said “Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable."   And at times when we’re grinding, I can’t help but think that is true.   As I am starting back into my “busy 9 months” I find myself thinking about how to capture the  “mental energy” in a bottle to sustain me through the cold winter months.   Those times of years where the grind of the job and life  makes you lag just a bit.   And it looks like I may have found the ticket…. Firing up the creativity. the show (

Welcome back to Season 2.   A few weeks ago I road tripped into Oregon for the first time in over a year.  It gave me an opportunity to look at things through new eyes because while Oregon borders on Idaho… they tend to be very  different places at the heart.   In a previous bonus  episode I touched on some the high quality beverages that seem to be everywhere in Oregon , today I thought it would be appropriate to touch on another ubiquitous Oregon business:   The  dispensaries:  Because while I’m not in the least bit interested in marijuana (and in fact it is one of those things that could get me fired) I would like to acknowledge the creativity that can be seen just outside these establishments.Support the show (

Whitmore.  Welcome to Episode 52 of the Strive Seek Find Podcast   I’m excited today.   Last June I challenged myself to do 52 weekly episodes of what would become this podcast.   I’m proud to say. Its been with bonus episodes closer to sixty with the bonus episodes.   Now that I’m done patting myself on my back for the simple accomplishment of being consistent, this week I was reminded by a friend of the importance of disconnecting  from our  communication machine from time to time.    This is can be the same as getting into the hills (if you really do it right or a conscious decision.  Support the show (
