Beach Walk 678R – Use Data to Build Confidence

Please enjoy this summer replay!

Some people are confident naturally; here are some tips for the rest of us. My friend Chris Brogan recently recorded a podcast about it. (Link removed as the file is no longer available.) Today’s episode of Beach Walks (filmed on an amazing day!!) came from my decisions to “swim first” and do the show second. One of the ways I’ve learned to build confidence is to be able to resist my feelings, and use data to inform my decisions and actions. That pesky #2 personality is frequently there to play the emotion card, which can keep us thinking and feeling “one down.”

Beach Walk 510 – Sad Ferry, Happy Animals

The Super Ferry has been shut down for now, awaiting an Environmental Impact Study or new legislation, or both.

We here in Hawai’i have been getting some bad press about this issue. And some people are truly upset. Most that I have spoken with are reasonable – do the study, plan for potential problems, but bottom line the ferry will add value to many lives.

By a sort of co-incidence, my friend Ava sent a link to this slide show about a polar bear frolicking with some dogs up in the Arctic. I found the pictures truly amazing, and I keep returning to the thought, Animals Are Conscious. (See “BW #162 and BW #448.) That doesn’t mean they do not sometimes need our protection; it just means that in many cases they are capable of taking care of themselves.

BTW, we sure had a lot of dogs on the beach playing with us today too.

Beach Walk 444 – Free Hugs

Today was a travel day, and complications appeared at several steps along the way. Then, as we were walking through LAX Airport at 9:30 pm, we encountered a most wonderful experience.

I love the topic, and I think you’ll be thrilled to meet Liz!

Original Free Hugs campaign
I’d like to note that actually I did a free hug campaign in New York City in 1989 – and gave away 37 hugs to 37 strangers, celebrating my 37th birthday. It was one wonderful day!
