We're very happy (of course) this week, because we hit several milestones.
First, we hit one million downloads, after just a few months! Incredible. We're thrilled. Thank you listeners.
Not only that, we hit #4 on iTunes yesterday. Our highest ever. Yowza.
Another milestone, the podcast was featured in a BuzzFeed list 10 Life-Changing Thing to Try in June. That's right, folks, we're life-changing.
Yet another milestone: we did our very first interview. We've planned to do interviews all along, and finally, we're underway.
Update: I report on whether I managed to keep my "hostess neurosis" under control during my daughter's birthday party. (In episode 14, I promised to try to avoid that fate.)
Try This at Home: Be a tourist in your own city.
Interview: bestselling author Tom Rath. His new book just hit the shelves: Are You Fully Charged? The Three Keys to Energizing Your Work and Life. (Spoiler alert: the three keys are meaning, interactions, and energy.) If you want more, Tom and I interviewed each other here. Tom mentions the work of professor Teresa Amabile.
Listener Question: "How can I break my habit of snoozing the day away, and show up for myself as readily as I show up for others?" Go here if you want to read more about being an "Obliger."
Elizabeth’s Demerit: Elizabeth asks her husband Adam the same question repeatedly, in hopes of getting the answer she wants.
Coming up: To celebrate our 20th episode, we're going to do an episode that features our listeners. So call, email, post your response by June 24, 2015, to one of these questions:
-- if you could change one aspect of a relationship, what would you change? Huge, trivial, any relationship.
-- what happiness demerit would you give yourself? what gold star would you bestow?
