The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  I think most all working adults have experienced (or are experiencing) the sluggish malaise of a burn out. These are the times when our joy of life just feels stalled and all that remains is stress and anxiety. I, myself, am just emerging from that nearly paralyzing state of burn out. For that reason, I am so much looking forward to our conversation today with one of my very favorite podcast guests: Lindsay Davis. Lindsay is a business and life coach for high performers. She “lives” in the success arena and fully understands one of the greatest issues facing high...

#237 Terry Hershey: The Sacred Wounds of Brokenness show art #237 Terry Hershey: The Sacred Wounds of Brokenness

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  This week on his blog, Sabbath Moment, Terry Hershey has been writing about the restorative power of brokenness. Terry writes this: “In embracing our wounds, they become sacred wounds, because grace is alive and well in brokenness. It’s paradigm shift time. Time to move from a project-management view of life, to a “wade-in” view of life. Life, in its brokenness, is not to be contained, explained, or fixed.” I really like the idea of moving on from a project-management view of life. It is so much better to view life as an exciting and unpredictable adventure, as...

#236 Zen Cryar DeBrucke: Your Internal Guidance System show art #236 Zen Cryar DeBrucke: Your Internal Guidance System

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Our talk today is a most important discussion about how we can better “orient” our lives. Let me explain. For decades, I have believed in the idea that we all possess some sort of built-in internal gyroscope to align our daily lives with our personal values. As you well know, the technical function of a gyroscope is to detect the deviation of an object from its desired orientation. Isn’t that true for us as well? I truly believe that we have (or need) a personal internal gyroscope. Well, our guest today, Zen Cryar DeBrucke, has devoted more than 30 years to exploring...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today we have on our show a favorite guest, master storyteller, Linda Olson. Linda has a brand-new book that demonstrates how to use the discipline of storytelling to, as stated in the subtitle, Empower Your Hope When Going Through Tough Times. As I was chatting with Linda earlier this week, I came to the realization that there is a huge difference between your “stories” and your “STORY.” In our previous podcasts with Linda we talked primarily about developing tools necessary to tell your life “stories” in a lucid, yet concise manner. We will continue that a bit in...

#234 Fr Maurice Emelu: Reflecting Your Values show art #234 Fr Maurice Emelu: Reflecting Your Values

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   You know, on this show, we talk a lot about your core self and about the importance of owning your personal values. Well, today’s guest takes the notion of personal values just a step deeper. He reminds us that our life’s mission might be about “reflecting your deepest held values and beliefs.” Fr Maurice Emelu, PhD and professor of digital media and Communication at John Carroll University, is first of all a priest from Catholic Diocese of Orlu in Nigeria. For Fr Maurice, his love of God and love of people remain among the highest of his deeply held personal value...

#233 Charlie: Everyone Has a Next Chapter show art #233 Charlie: Everyone Has a Next Chapter

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Just recently we did a show with Terry Hershey on Creating Inner Space for Change. The idea was that in order for meaningful life change to occur, you must first “declutter” your mind and your activities. I believe it is show #231, so listeners might want to check that one out because today I plan to talk more about what “Life Change” might look like. What does it mean to live with meaning, adventure, and awe? Although, it’s the theme of our web presence and yet I am not sure I have ever addressed the subject on a podcast. Well, today is the day. As an Executive Life...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today, our recording day is March 17th or St Patrick’s Day, so I have brought on an Irish man to talk a bit about why we celebrate St Patrick’s Day and then talk a lot about poverty in the world. My guest is a very fortunate cancer survivor, Nick Jordan, who is CEO and Founder, Wells of Life, Inc. a group that is committed to bringing clean water to 1,000 communities in Uganda and beyond. And as that dream is about to come true the end of this year, 2022 as we March to a Million. What that means is not only will we serve 1000 villages, but that effort to mean that we have...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Okay, truthfully… today is a show I very much look forward to hosting. It is yet another episode with my dear friend Terry Hershey. Now typically, Terry and I have some rather challenging philosophical issue to discuss and it’s always a blast to do that kind of show. But today will be a bit different. It’s a hybrid… maybe.  I anticipate a sort of potpourri of catching up on stuff we haven’t talked about for a while. First of all, as of 2 hours ago, baseball is back… and my son has a job again. Next, Terry just spent the morning watching birds… or something...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Our guest today, Dr Tiffanie Tate Moore, is the poster child for resilience. Raised by an Aunt, in Compton CA, because both her parents were strongly addicted to drugs and alcohol. Dr Tiffany grew up to be valedictorian, an OBG/YN Surgeon, a medical Officer in the United States Navy, and having a successful medical practice in riverside, CA. All pretty impressive, huh? But that does not take into account that she was abused in early childhood, was shot in her back in a drive-by shooting, and had to quit medical practice at the age of 44 because of a hand injury that prevented...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  I’m loving the title of the new book by our guest today, Dr Pamela Gerali. It’s called The Dance of the Ego and Essence. In our discussion today we will talk about “who we really are” in are in our deepest and truest selves and what it is that prevents us from living in harmony with that truest self. That is why Pamela Gerali calls the process a Dance. I like that. A delicate a compassionate dance with our own spirit, hour heart, and mind. I am very much looking forward to this conversation. Dr Pamela Gerali captivates readers and audiences with wisdom and practical...

Show Notes 

My guest today, Dr. Neil Farber, presents a powerful case for the miracle of Serendipity and the Art of Paying Attention. As Neil Farber and I chat, it becomes apparent that many of our most important decisions in life are the result of unexpected and surprising events that seem to occur out of nowhere.

A man with fabulous stories about life’s serendipitous events, Dr. Farber convinced me that my life personally has been more determined by serendipity than it has by conscious planning. Now that was a surprise.

Neil Farber’s book, Serendipity: Utilizing Everyday Unexpected Events to Improve Your Life and Career, offers a most helpful review of serendipity and important tools for identifying when such events happen in your life.
