We've been busy preparing for the Very Special Episode, coming up in episode 20, where we'll feature our listeners. Thanks to everyone who called or emailed us -- the comments are so thought-provoking.
Try This at Home: Buy an experience. We were inspired by the suggestion made by Tom Rath, in our interview with him in episode 15.
Better Than Before Habit Strategy: The Strategy of Foundation (eat and drinking right; move around; get enough sleep; and -- more surprisingly -- unclutter). Here's the image that Elizabeth referred to, the cover of Better Than Before.
Listener Question: "On the Four Tendencies -- Upholder, Questioner, Obliger, or Rebel -- I'm a Questioner. If I don't see the point, I find it difficult to do what I'm supposed to do, and sometimes I get in my own way. So how does a Questioner get over that?" Great question. Want to take the Quiz? Here it is.
Gretchen’s Demerit: Table manners. For me and my family.
Elizabeth’s Gold Star: Her gold star goes to Julie, a fellow pre-school mother, who volunteered to make a keepsake yearbook for the children.
Don't miss the extra little exchange between Elizabeth and me, at the very end of the podcast! (That's called a "button" in podcasting parlance.)
