The UnGrind

With COVID-19 having taken over our lives, Jason and Joey devote 35 minutes to crisis management - not on a practical or physical level, but questioning the psychological implications of situations such as those we face today. Having agreed that the present day crisis is the result of the ‘collective unconscious’, the conversation moves on to possessions and the impact it has on us when we lose them. They decide that we should all treat everything we own as already broken or lost by default. Ultimately the conversation explores the ‘I wonder how this will turn out in my favour’...

Joey goes walkies in today’s episode, taking his mic out and about the neighbourhood while talking to Jason. Having evolved from Grinders to Ungrinders, they reflect on the highs and lows of life and the importance of staying on an even keel. Jason honestly and frankly opens up about his own financial challenges, but vows to stay in the moment rather than wallow in worry - helped along by the teachings of Eckhart Tolie.

How do you think you look when you walk through the door after a full day’s grind at your desk? And how differently do you think you’d look - and feel - if you’d taken some time out of your day to do something you enjoy, be generous to others, or spend it with those you love? Jason and Joey address the slump, whether post-holiday blues or a rough day at work. Should you find yourself struggling mentally or physically, question whether you’re taking the right steps to nourish yourself. Are you taking enough breaks? Have you been spending time away from your phone or social media? Does...

“Convention doesn’t inspire” With Jason Harmon feeling under the weather, Joey is joined this week by Don MacPherson, host of technologies podcast 12 Geniuses.

The UnGrind

“Don’t judge the judgement”  Jason and Joey are joined by special guest Shane Wachlin as they tackle the subject of honesty.  Why are we afraid to be honest 100% of the time? Is it fear? Kindness? Self preservation? The theme of the show broadens to judgement, as Shane advises our hosts not to project shame onto their own thought processes. Instead of judging ourselves for judging, we should instead work on guiding our thought processes to compassion.  Never afraid to take on the big questions, Joey rounds up today’s chat by asking his guests whether society as a whole...

"You can't hustle your way to joy." - Jason Harmon  The world clearly wants Joey to talk about meditation - so let's talk about meditation. He confesses he's fallen out of the habit and a lot of people are asking him about it, just as Jason reports having a valuable experience with the '49 breaths' method.  This sparks a wider discussion about slipping out of positive routines, whether abstaining from alcohol, eating healthily or exercising. Both agree this is a perfectly human thing to do - the important thing being to learn your lesson from your most recent failure and apply it to...

Take a breathe. Pause for thought. Let it go. Today's chat starts with Jason recounting a recent experience of being stuck in a snow ditch while driving - and how he has learned to not waste his energy on being angry about the things we can't control. Joey similarly invokes the example of a woman who left him an expletive centred voicemail at 2am, highlighting the importance of letting things go.  The conversation moves on to unconsciousness - the things we all do without realising it - and the value in taking a pause, whether in conversation or whilst reflecting on ourselves. Jason...

“That which looks like prison to you looks like safety to him” - Michael Singer Jason joins Joey while donning a sparkling red cowboy hat, which sparks the conversation: would you wear such an item to an important business meeting?‘Of course not,’ comes Jason’s predictable reply, as the pair discuss the boundaries of our comfort zone - or, to use Michael Singer’s analogy, the cage that simultaneously provides security and prevents self-exploration. Moving on to broader discussions of our internal monologue, Jason reveals how he has learned to internalise bad behaviours which would...

Joey confesses business is slow - but unlike similar times in the past, he's not going to let that be a reason for high anxiety. As per his new life philosophy, he is simply going to allow it to happen. The conversation moves onto anxiety in general, and how we need to learn to relax - not being busy does not have to mean feeling anxious. After distracting themselves with a tangent about military cadences, Jason and Joey conclude their chat by emphasising the importance of being present in a conversation. As per Jason Harmon's new t-shirt design: "Whoever you are, be there".
