 As a longtime business performance coach I often times told people to leave other people alone on Monday morning and at least wait till Monday afternoon if you have to talk to them.  That is why I push my podcast later in the day so that after the day is just about done you can take a few minutes for reflection, maybe something to learn, maybe something to make you smile or just think about.  And so in my 15 minutes today I am going to talk about a coming Supreme Court decision that will be about a High school coach that lost his job because he prayed.  We will get the...

Yes the title is right. I often say that Friday is the day we think about our future and I'm doing just that. In the future I'm not going to have any more birthdays.  But before I do that on this Friday let us have our final lesson this week and what it means, or at least what it might mean to be a person a real class. And today I want to share with you the story of two books that changed my life that I found in recycling barrels and garage sales that have affected me deeply.  And one of the books told me about the great and powerful word poise, POISE. So part of my life and my...

Interesting Ideas-with Stan Hustad -The Creator Enterprise Podcast

There's an old ancient prayer that goes something like this, "Lord deliver me from all fretfulness." I love that because it says it, Don't Fret. Today as we flow out of turbulence Thursday I'd like to talk to you about being a person of real class.  I have a wonderful story about a young police officer showed a major organization what it means to be a man class midst of the chaos that they caused.  Then from an old book that I started 15 years ago that still needs to be completed on how to be a coach I want to read from one of my favorite little essays, indeed a bit of a poem. ...

Interesting Ideas-with Stan Hustad -The Creator Enterprise Podcast

 I try to never leave the movie theater at the end of the program or show, I prefer to wait until almost everybody is gone and the credits are done. Let me tell you why I do that.  And we are talking about class, true class this week and seeking to describe it, discover it, and maybe even be that.  Indeed, what is real class? Unfortunately so many people today are doing work and life in what I call the karaoke mode.  It's not their song, it's not their idea, it's not their way of living and performing and doing something truly creative unique, creative and a bit...

Interesting Ideas-with Stan Hustad -The Creator Enterprise Podcast

I bit my lip and didn't say anything to the person who treated me very poorly, but I admit I wanted to say, "that was not only low class that was no class whatsoever."  And I always ask myself when I do something with or for another would I ever want them to think or say that to me or about me.  I encourage you to make that a personal discipline in this coming age of chaos confusion, and I'm afraid possible violence.  So that's the deal for today: may I ask what does it mean to be world class, which is an aspiration I gave to many of my students. And on a personal level what...

 Is there anything that you can be certain of in the somewhat perilous times. Many of the people who pontificate on the economic situation say that inflation will now be followed by a possible significant recession.  And those are two things that will cause great disruption and dislocation in peoples lives. Can I give you a little old fashion performance coaching about what I call the MSII Factor.  And I will also go back to a statement I made many times from my life in "experimental living."  God wants you to be an entrepreneur or at least think like one.  Well you've...

 I can assure you that in June 2020 when Joe Biden was running to be president that he never could have thought  his life would be like it is in June 2022. His presidency is shattered and he will not be remembered very well at all.  That one reason  why we ask people to think clearly and prayerfully about the future they hope to create every Friday.  And in our future we hope to create a way for people to learn how to powerfully pray and think about their future.  The podcast program will be called, More Power to You.  And in preparing for that program, my...

 in my many years of living experimentally, and that's what my life has been, a whole series of experiments.  Some of them have been fairly successful, many have not, and some have pushed me to the very edge of life and business.  I can't say that I would choose to do it all over again, but it is the way I did it.  More and more in my maturity I have discovered that true wisdom is the ability to say three very difficult words.  I was wrong.   We are now beginning to discover the realities behind how we handled the Covid crisis in the past two years and...

That's what I did and it was weird and a bit crazy but that's what I did and I liked it.  And doing that was one of the best things I've ever done because it helped me to learn that life often has to be lived by doing weird crazy things that nobody expects, or sometimes even likes.  Can you imagine my wife's reaction when she stepped into my little studio place and saw me painting thiefloor bright red.  I'm also  going to give you a heads up by a brief mention that I want you to read or think about the fact that we might be facing some serious famine in the world this...

And some of you have already guessed what I'm talking about and others might not.  When visitors go to Washington DC the capital of the United States there are lots of memorials and monuments and museums and things to see and do.  The most visited one is the one that had the most controversial beginning.  Indeed many who saw the first design were horrified by it.  It was terrible, ugly, nihilistic, and certainly not a worthy way to honor the 56,000 men and women who have died in that difficult and ultimately losing conflict.  And for some it was difficult when they...
