But It's Not The "Right Time"

EHow often have you put off doing something because it hasn't been "the right time" to do it? Probably, more often than you'd like to admit. In this episode Joseph Mencel discusses the dilemma of waiting for "the right time" to do something and why identifying and avoiding “the wrong time” is far more useful. Using examples from business, career and fitness, Joseph illustrates the difference between legitimate wrong times, and perceived "right times", and recalls his own personal experiences with both. Joseph then explores the practical problems created by continuously procrastinating on account of it not being "the right time" to do something, before closing out the episode with a 3 step process that you can apply to any situation where you find yourself putting something off because it’s not "the right time" An insightful and entertaining episode. Enjoy!

They discuss the multitude of lessons that being present during the pandemic period can teach us, while considering what our experience of COVID-19 may look like in restrospect.

Stop Fooling Around In The Grey With Leah Mencel

EJoseph Mencel & Leah Mencel discuss the binary nature of every action we take and every decision we make when it comes to achieving a particular goal. By defining actions & decisions that move us closer towards a goal as "white" and those that move us further away from a goal as "black", Joseph & Leah consider the "grey"; actions & decisions that are clearly white that we try to justify as being black, or that are clearly black that we try to paint as white. They consider why so many of us spend so much time in this grey area, and why it is so important that we avoid it at all costs when trying to achieve our goals. They close the episode out by offering practical advice on how you can stop fooling around the grey. Interesting. Insightful. Inspiring. This is one episode you'll want to share.

Stop Fooling Around In The Grey With Leah Mencel

Speed v Patience

EJoseph Mencel explores the polarity between speed in execution and patience in planning.

Joseph then explores the 2 most common speed and patience shortcomings that most people face and how they apply to both fitness & business. By giving his own personal experiences in each field, Joseph illustrates how he has successfully applied a good ratio of speed & patience to achieve success. Joseph wraps the episode up with some practical advice on how you can identify and correct your lack of either speed or patience to help you achieve real, long lasting success in all areas of life. Short, sharp and hugely insightful - you'll want to take notes during this one.
