The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes For most of the month of May I will be deep “in the heart of Uganda” I will be working with the Wells of Life Ugandan staff. On this trip I will dig deep into operational strategies, building closer relationships with our 12 person staff, and building deeper affiliations with government leadership that impacts our services or providing access to clean water. In this brief 10-minute interview with Producer Paul we discuss why, after retirement, I chose to add charity service to my resume. Please consider the encouragement to (1) Stay curious, and (2) Always be an explorer. For...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today’s show is truly special. My guest, infectious disease physician Dr Harley Rotbart, speaks in depth on his new book: No Regrets Living: 7 Keys to Wonder and Contentment. In a book originally intended to offer wisdom and insight for his children, Harley Rotbart takes us through an essential process for living a life that really matters. He gets personal, candid and maybe even a bit controversial… Well… truthfully… I think it is me that gets controversial. But, what’s new about that?

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Sometimes the next chapter in life involves a radical move. Our guest today is a perfect example. Donna Francart transitioned from an Executive Travel Agent to becoming a Deputy Coroner. Today we talk about Donna’s new book I’ve Seen Dean People: Diary of a Deputy Coroner. In our lively conversation Donna tells us about life as a Deputy Coroner, visions of death, and poignant insights into the meaning of life and death. In what may seem like a darker subject, I think you will be surprised how engaging and meaningful our conversation is. Let’s welcome former Deputy...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  We have a very important social issue in our culture today that receives little press, or… really… any kind of attention… Except to those in the middle of it: Care for our Aging population. Especially those with that require medical, professional or just more regular personal attention. On today’s show we have gerontologist and dedicated advocate of society’s disenfranchised, Dr Jacque DuPont. Jacque is so uniquely gifted. She demonstrates that rare combination of superior intelligence with an overwhelming heart of compassion. On this episode of the Next Chapter with...

#186 Terry Hershey: Talking to Ourselves show art #186 Terry Hershey: Talking to Ourselves

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today Terry Hershey and I explore one possible reason that America is a radically divided country. And each side is firmly convinced that they are right, as each will cite “supposed factual information” in support of their beliefs. But… information itself is not the problem. It’s about the source of our information. One of the big reasons for our strong battle lines just may be that our information is too biased. We tend to rely only on information that supports the stance we have already agreed upon. Therefore we end up talking to ourselves. Is a middle ground even...

From the Archives Jenn Bork: From the Archives Jenn Bork: "Feeling" Fully Alive

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today I really look forward to the show, not so much because of the fascinating content but more because of our ultra fascinating guest… my dear, dear brilliant friend, Jennifer Bork. Now, Jenn comes to us with no breathtaking resume, has authored no books, has no blog, podcast or business that places her atop the so-called social scale of that which most Americans secretly strive for. Instead, Jenn Bork is a wife of Jon Bork, mother of two amazing children August and Tessa, a Facebook Make up guru, and a gym and boxing fanatic … but mostly Jennifer is a woman with as much...

#184 Lindsay Davis on Life: A Burning Ball of Desire show art #184 Lindsay Davis on Life: A Burning Ball of Desire

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  On our show with Lindsay Davis today we explore the very core of human existence. I think we can best sum it up with the words of psychologist Phil Sutherland, “As human beings, before we are anything else, we are a “burning ball of desire.” Lindsay and I probe the ROLE of burning desire in every single move we make. We ARE desire. We express desire. Without desire we are barely more than automatons. But with desire we are hungry. We are fruitful. And we can find extraordinary pleasure and productivity in life. And why should our lives NOT be pleasurable and productive?...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today we have an important discussion with therapist Jamie Lerner on the value of taking care of yourself. Our thesis is this: if you don’t exercise intentional care for yourself, you will be absolutely no good to anyone else. On this show Jamie and I are keenly interested in the details of self-care, both emotionally and tangibly: What exactly can you do on a regular basis to build your own emotional bank account so that you have plenty to give to others. A bit of background on Jamie Lerner: After earning her MSW at Loyola University, Jamie Lerner spent several years in...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  The episode today is certainly the most philosophical shows we have ever done. As you will quickly discover, Terry Hershey and I do what I am fond of saying: “we go down deep, and stay down long.”  Here’s the question: Do you believe something because, it is True, or is something True because you believe it?  Is truth a matter of choice? Is there substance to the thought that… truth is simply a matter of whatever one chooses to believe? That is the question Terry and I ponder over the next hour. We had great fun and I hope you find your own truth in this...

Today I’m feeling a need to talk about a subject that haunts just about all of us: Fear and Self-Doubt. Successful real estate mogul Sanford Coggins once told us on this podcast that, in his experience, “self-doubt” is the primary roadblock to achieving your dreams in life. Fear is mostly certainly holds its own as the other roadblock.

I think we learn far too early that failure is tragic, embarrassing, and proof that you are “Less Than.” Which is simply untrue. Neil Gaimen in his famous college graduation speech encourage the graduating seniors to “make mistakes, make lots of mistakes, make HUGE mistakes.”

That’s because mistakes are a marvelous tool that can lead you to eventual success. First of all, if you make a mistake, it means YOU TRIED! You were “in the game.” That alone is worthy. And, in addition, there are all the things you learn along the way.

But often, instead of learning helpful tools we learn to be afraid and doubt our ability. Therein lies the tragedy.
