Wired To Create | Morning ROAR V3.21

Summary:

For as long as humans have been on planet Earth, our species has stood apart from the rest through our aptitude to invent. But where exactly do our ideas stem from?

In This Episode…

  • What’s the difference between an idea that “pushes” and an idea that “pulls”?
  • The interconnected nature of usefulness and happiness

Today’s ROAR Thought:

The main drive behind our innovation and drive to create comes from our own desires. By reprioritizing our desires towards helping others, we are much more effective at serving others. By being helpful and through solving the problems of the people around us, we indirectly make ourselves happy through being useful.

Information Overload, How To Focus In A World Full Of Clutter | Morning ROAR V2.36

Summary:

Living in an age where almost any answer lies at the tips of our fingers, it’s more apparent than ever before just how much the human brain is capable of processing and storing.

  • How much can our mind process each and every second?
  • An simple yet amazing exercise illustrating what you’re capable of with careful focus.

Today’s ROAR Thought:

There’s nothing wrong with not knowing everything. What’s important is that you figure out what you want and gain knowledge that will help you to reach that goal. By blocking out distractions and focusing on one specific endpoint, you may be surprised by what you’re able to accomplish.

Always Start With The End In Mind | Morning ROAR V2.33

Summary:

There’s no right or wrong way to live life; it’s equally valid to take things one day at a time as it is to have an in depth plan. However, by discovering what it is that we want when it’s all said and done, we can give back and live to our fullest potential.

In This Episode…

  • Two schools of thought on how to go about “figuring out” life
  • Showing an appreciation for life through purpose.

Today’s ROAR Thought:

It’s alright not to know exactly how you’re going to reach your end goal; nobody can be completely confident that things will go according to plan. What is important is to make the effort to find out what matters most to you. By doing so, you can make a greater impact on your environment and the people closest to you.

Does Anyone Like The Sound Of Their Alarm? | Morning ROAR V1.85

Summary:

Nobody actually enjoys the sound of a blaring alarm clock. However, despite how difficult it may be to get out of bed, each day that we wake up to a blaring alarm clock is a gift that deserves to be embraced.

In This Episode…

  • Advice from Annie Dillard and Geoff Woods on starting your day on a positive note.
  • How can a shift in your mindset first thing in the morning change the entire course of your day?

Today’s ROAR Thought:

Waking up and hitting the snooze button isn’t the proper way to show your appreciation for this life. Instead of rolling over and heading back to sleep, embrace the morning; it’s a day closer to reaching your goals and a fresh start to be the best version of yourself.

Get Up Today And Do The Work You’re Obligated To Do | Morning ROAR V1.38

Summary:

Citing a segment from Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, Adam discusses what we may be able to take away from observations made nearly 2000 years ago.

In This Episode…
