About Us

A podcast about the decisions we don't think much about, but probably should.I really believe the decisions we make are true reflections of our character. The thing is, the vast majority of the decisions we make in a day, we don't think much about. In this podcast, I want to reflect on those really involuntary, muscle memory, decisions. I think that's the way to become a better person - get a little better every day.

Put Down The Knife

I flipped out when my son reached for our knife block, but maybe I didn't need to react quite so intensely. Here's a link to the Hidden Brain episode I mentioned: https://www.npr.org/2020/06/12/876073130/the-air-we-breathe-implicit-bias-and-police-shootings And some other links that I was poking around on related to the concept of thinking slow: https://www.bostonglobe.com/ideas/2015/07/25/the-power-slow-thinking/ToZbzYl7rG0yVMCtsZ7WnJ/story.html https://www.amazon.com/Mindfulness-English-Bhante-Henepola-Gunaratana/dp/0861719069 --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/musclememory/message

A Generous Cup of Coffee

We had the perfect plan, until the coffee shop was closed. Luckily, our morning was saved by an act of tremendous generosity. Here's a link to learn more about Good Cakes and Bakes. We're so lucky they're in our neighborhood: https://goodcakesandbakes.com/. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/musclememory/message

No-shout Challenge

I shout. Embarrassingly, it's mostly at my son. My wife shared a "no-shout challenge" with me. It was remarkable how a well-crafted intervention could help me shout less so quickly.

What being a big boy is all about

While taking him to the bathroom, I had the proudest moment I've ever had with my eldest son. What it took, however, is fighting against my urge to solve his problems for him. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/musclememory/message

Say Gesundheit

Saying, "God Bless you" is like a secret handshake across cultures and languages. Why do we keep saying these sorts of phrases? Here's a link to the Wikipedia page I mentioned: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Response_to_sneezing. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/musclememory/message

(Temper) The Papa Bear Mentality

My protective, fatherly, instinct kicked in on Christmas Day this year. I've realized though, that instinct has to have limits. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/musclememory/message

(Temper) The Papa Bear Mentality

Terrific Twos

As a parent, it's easy to fall into repeating how we were raised - for better or worse. Having a two year old brings this to the front of my mind on a daily basis. Here's a link to the the wonderful book, Kids are worth it!: Giving your child the gift of inner-discipline, that I mentioned in the episode. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/musclememory/message
