Observing Others

Kelly Silvester

Someone once said “the eyes are the windows to the soul.”If you ponder on that statement long enough one of the most profound insights you with ever experience will dawn on you. It will enlighten your mind with such force it will be one of the greatest light blub moments you will ever have.This eureka aha light bulb wake up moment will occur because the lightening strike epiphany you will have will not be what you expected. Here it is: If the eyes are the window to the soul, it is not as much about what those eyes reveal when looking into another’s eyes, as much as, seeing from another person’s perspective.That’s right: a willingness to see through another’s eye’s will be the greatest discovery you will ever make! Observing others is not as much about watching other people as it is about seeing the world from their viewpoint.Come watch with us! read less

Motivation: Like Tires on a Truck
What motivates men?Needs and wants are motivators.So are rewards.For podcast purposes we have broken down some of these needs and wants and rewards into categories.Today's podcast we talk about External Motivators, Internal Motivators, and Supernal Motivators.Each of the 3 areas can be broken down into subcategories or facets.Under External Motivators:  Physical, Sexual, Financial, Material, RecreationalUnder Interal Motivators: Mental, Emotional, Social, Political, MoralUnder Supernal Motivators: Spiritual, Theological, Marital, Parental, PersonalThese categories can be likened to the 18 wheels on a semi truck.Consider the weight balance and necessary tire pressure on the 18 wheels. All of the eighteen tires are necessary but if one tire has a blow out, the remaining tires can manage the load until the tire can be repaired or replaced. If each tire represented a need, having several flat tires would negatively affect the a balance in the system. If the blown tire is neglected and other tires eventually blow as well, the rig would be stranded.You could easily over exaggerate a few areas while neglecting others. You could be physically fit for example, but socially inept.  You could be in shape financially, but an absent husband or father.  You could even excel spiritually and intellectually but be emotionally unstable.Listen and discover ways you can improve character as you focus on the facets of your life that move you.And make sure you get colon cancer screening!

Dan's Best Friend
My best friend's name is Dan.Well, Dan's best friend is in the doghouse.Have you ever been in the doghouse with your best friend?How do you mend fences when frienships get messy?We have some guests on today's podcast that have some good ideas.Thanks Kolton Rackham, Lorin Jeppsen and Angie Thorpe for joining us!Once there was a dog whose owner was injured in a car accident and was taken to a hospital. The injuried man lived alone. He called his neighbor and asked if his neighbor would go and feed and water the dog. The neighbor agreed and went next door to feed the dog.The dog, however, did not trust the neighbor. Once the neighbor was in the dog's back yard, the dog began growling and snarling at the neighbor. The man couldn't get passed the dog to get the food or water. So the neighbor left and tried again the following day.The next day the result was the same. The dog still did not like or trust the neighbor. Several days went by. The neighbor had made multiple fruitless attempts to no avail.One day the neighbor thought that if he brought some dog food with him, that might just do the trick. The neighbor even brought some meaty treats with him that day.By the time the neighbor came back with food in hand, the dog was weak from lack of food and water and exhausted from so much barking. Gently the neighbor held out the food hoping the dog would not bite the hand that fed him.Bashfully the dog decided to accept the generosity and persistency of the neighbor and ate the food. The dogs strength returned. But so did a love for its neighbor.The two became like best friends.Get out of the doghouse. Reach out to your friends today!

The Magic Formula
My father, Dr. K once stated: "The most essential educational experience a child can have in elementary education is Show & Tell."He also said in order to effectively explain something you need to break it down & sum it up.Today we are going to do the math and break down some more numbers.All in search of a magic formula.There is a magic formula.Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.Did you know there are only 12 tones in Western Music?All pitches originate from one of these tones.But look at the astounding amount of brilliant music that has resulted from only 12 notes.The Western Alphabet derived from the Greek Alphabet has only 24 letters.Look at the near endless amount of literature that has been written from only 24 letters.There are only 3 primary colors (blue, red, yellow) with a total of 24 named colors on a color wheel.Yet the human eye can distinguish nearly 7,000,000 color variations. Add to that the infinite works of art that start with only 24 standard colors.Tones, letters and colors can be organized into formulas.One type of formula can be a routine.One type of formula can be a method.One type of formula can be a regulator.One type of formula can be a system.One type of formula can be an application.Today we are going to focus on systems and applications.And we are on location at Guru Technologies to do just that.First, Disneyland one more time.To improve the guest experience, Disney turned to technology.Disney is one of Guru Technologies past clients.Certain systems like Disneyland lines evolved into stand by lines, Fast Passes, Lightening Lanes, and virtual queues.For food purchases, Disney also adopted mobile ordering apps. They became  self check out kiosks in your hand.Hand held self check out registers.Paper tickets iterated to virtual tickets and now Magic Bands.Find out how before Covid-19, health care was a closed loop system much like proprietary operating systems, like Windows, in the past. The emergence of Linux, an open source operating system, that powers Android helped even the operating systems playing field. Similarly, AWS --Amazon Web Services, "transformed web based businesses and made it so businesses didn't have to spend 10 million dollars on data centers, but could spend $200.00 on a credit card and get the same thing.Thanks Trenton Cook and Guru Technologies for hosting us!
