Beach Walk 625 – Have you heard Reef Radio?

Back in January we launched our social community, The Reef.

It’s a great place to hang out and meet the brilliant wonderful people who watch and love Beach Walks! Yes, it is free. And you can create your own pages and upload your own pictures, music, and videos.

We have just now released Reef Radio! It’s a keiki (child) for now, but you can start listening to our downtempo and contemporary Hawaiian music. Coming soon we’ll be inserting Beach Walks excerpts and also opening it up to screened, like-minded advertisers.

P.S. I will be at Podcamp NYC this Fri and Sat.

Hawaiian word:
Lekiō: radio

Beach Walk 623 – Solving Problems Side by Side

If you watch this show regularly, you know that I like teasing apart the little nuances and discrepancies in how we use words, the language.

It packs so much subtle energy, and that energy can actually interfere with the pursuit of happiness IMO. One example is the difference between compromise and negotiation. In compromise, it looks like two people facing (off) against each other, with the problem in the middle. Both people typically feel like they have to give up something in order to solve the problem in the middle, to save the relationship, which is also in the middle. In negotiation, people can sit side by side and face the problem/relationship together, looking to see how much of a win each can gain from creative problem-solving. Negotiation is deliciously devoid of tit for tat energy.

Hawaiian word:
Lanakila: win, triumph
