+++ Daily Guinness #031 - IN PRAXIA - Can I Use UBER To Become More Curious? (feat. Aaron Johnson)

“In Praxia” is Latin for “In Practice” In this follow up to yesterday’s episode about something I’m calling “The UBER Challenge” I sit down with one of my closest friends, Aron Johnson, in Tampa Florida to talk about our recent UBER ride and how much we learned from our driver in 15min. I have a feeling this challenge is here to stay. (Reach out and let me know if this is cheesy as hell… or maybe something you could see yourself trying to do as well.)

+++ Daily Guinness #030 - Can I Use UBER To Become More Curious?

I hate small talk. If I’m sitting next to someone on a flight or in an UBER, I’m most comfortable with my headphones in, minding my own business. But this year is different, I’ve committed to living a more curious life and that means being more generous with my attention and conversation on a day to day basis. Because of that I’ve come up with something I’m calling my UBER Challenge. Two things I try to accomplish in every UBER I get into this year. (Reach out and let me know if this is cheesy as hell… or maybe something you could see yourself trying to do as well.)

+++ Daily Guinness #029 - Can You Drink A Guinness In -24° Fahrenheit?

It’s officially colder at this moment where we are in Minnesota than it is in Antarctica. At these temps, frostbite sets in within five minutes of exposure, the US Postal Service has canceled their routes and my flight out of town tomorrow has been canceled. That said... the news is telling everyone to stay inside, but I’m curious what -24 feels like so I convinced Sarah to bundle up with a Guinness and head out with me. The fun part was short lived.

Question 52 // What’s The Most Likely Thing To Be True Here? (feat. Danny Warnock of Superior Gear)

My friend, Danny Warnock, and I are in the middle of a gig but we stepped out of the green-room long enough to talk about the company he started making hammocks and (like the majority of our convos) it ended up going way deeper talking about fear setting, taking on risk, and the real meaning of the phrase, “It’ll all work out ok in the end.”

+++ Daily Guinness #027 - There’s A U.S. Pond Hockey Championship?

If you ever visited Minnesota in the winter, you’re bound to notice constant activity happening on any number of the, now frozen over, lakes. I’m not originally from here, so this seasonal icebound cold leveraging is still new to me and I’m fascinated by anyone braving the elements and not letting -14 degree windchills stop them from enjoying the outdoors. Apparently, the US Pond Hockey Championships were taking place in town this weekend so I headed over to… well.. ON to Lake Nokomis to chat with Jim Dahline about the event.

+++ Daily Guinness #025 - I Found A Better Question To Ask Singer Songwriters!

I’m so tired of hearing artists I play with get asked, “So… what’s that song about.” I mean… I know it has it’s place in life, it’s a direct question and an important one at times, but I guess I’m just bored with it. I’ve been hunting for a more interesting question to ask when it comes to songwriting and I may have finally found one!!!

+++ Daily Guinness #024 - COGITATIONS - My What I’ve Learned From My Biggest Conversational Failures!

When you spend a year and a half listening to yourself talk to other people... it's hard to not become discouraged when every mistake you make is constantly right there naked in-front of you. What's surprising is, by choosing to learn from them, it has massively impacted even my music and even the artists I stand behind. In this episode, I take a moment before walking into a rehearsal to push through jet-lag and talk about how trust and rapport can be built or destroyed within the first few seconds of walking on stage or starting a conversation and should be your number one focus STARTING TODAY!
