SHOW NOTES: In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not. We are warriors fighting to establish clarity between what is accurate and what is simply a myth (or falsehood) in life. This episode is, “Everything Happens For a Reason.”
Our options that we discuss in this show are:
1) Everything happens.
2) Everything happens for a reason.
3) Everything happens for a specific reason (religious based, scientifically based, etc.).
This is intriguing show! Please join in as we explore some ideas that will challenge our assumptions about “what we know.” I did not anticipate that I would be so drawn into examining my own ideas about our world as I was in this show! I am not a theologian, a historian, a philosopher, a physicist or anything other than a layperson with curiosity about these topics. If you do not want to think about the questions this show poses, just go to another episode. My intent is for all of us to be “unsure” about “what we know” by utilizing a process of critical thinking and inquiry.
A) In addressing option 1, “Everything happens,” how do we know what is ‘everything’ and what is actually happening? In the show we discuss that we may be experiencing reality right now or we may not. We may instead be experiencing a facade of reality (or a simulation) like in the movie, The Matrix (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0133093/plotsummary). Or, we may be simply viewing shadows that we are mistaking for reality (e.g., Plato, The Allegory of the Cave https://faculty.washington.edu/smcohen/320/cave.htm).
B) In addressing option 2, “Everything happens for a reason,” how do we begin to ascribe a reason to our still undefined ‘everyth

Energy management is great for life and for functioning at work. What people often complaint to coaches about is lack of time. Dig a little deeper and you find that it is often something else: not prioritizing one's well being or what matters and trying to do it all. Of course we run out of time but what if we had a source of 'clean energy?' What if we 'installed' and early warning system when our energy reservoir was running on the dry side and close to empty? What would that look like? What would be the benefit of experimenting with that?
Listen as David Smith discusses the knowledge and skill transfer learned within immersion simulation for practitioners engaged in both international and domestic dispute resolution work and conflict resolution educators looking to build skills with students from the macro to the micro (the latter including workplace, family, community, and schools as examples). It is an opportunity to add skills and tools to and educator's and practitioner's own tool-kits. Conflict assessment, reactive skills, non-linear approaches and actions in conflict management and resolution are placed on the continuum of knowledge gleaned from an innovative educational immersion simulation: "Atlantic Hope" (AH). Come to David's session where he presents with his colleagues, Mara Schoeny and Sherrill Hayes, to learn about AH, its educational potential for students and practitioners within this intriguing program: Immersion Simulation as a Means of Building Career Ready Skills in International (and Domestic) Conflict Transformation and Peacebuilding: Thursday, October 9, 1:45 - 3:15 pm.
Join David and his colleagues, Mara Schoeny and Sherrill Hayes, and all the other great presenters at ACR Conference 2014 from October 8-11, 2014 at the Cincinnati Netherlands Hilton Hotel in Cincinnati, Ohio.

In an age when purchasing is done through RFP contests, recruitment by HR firms on LinkedIn, and business searches done online, is business networking really as important as it once was?
The short answer is yes, and I’ll tell you why.
A friend said to me once: “Your network is your net worth,” an idea advanced by Porter Gale in her book of the same name. I have realized that this sentiment is certainly on point, even if it’s not a direct equation.
Your network is a reservoir of value that will help you solve problems, receive support, find the right people, and ultimately grow your business. In an age where much more communications happen digitally, it is more important than ever to actually make human connections.

Boulder endurance athlete Billy Edwards joins us the night before the Boulder Ironman Triathlon. Billy should be asleep right now but is taking 15 minutes to chat with us about tomorrow's event.
One of the world's most popular triathlon destinations, this beloved Rocky Mountain town now hosts a full-distance race. Welcome to IRONMAN Boulder.
Nestled at the foot of the imposing Flatirons, Boulder, Colorado is already a wildly popular home-base and vacation destination for world-class triathletes. The city's health-conscious culture, near-perfect weather and breathtaking natural environment means it's destined to be an instant favorite on the IRONMAN circuit.
Boulder's robust downtown, with its famous pedestrian-only Pearl Street Mall and idyllic Boulder Creek, will provide families and fans an unforgettable race day as they wait for their loved ones to cross the finish line. From five-star hotels to James Beard award-winning restaurants, Boulder's hotel and dining options are some of the best in the nation.
The race will start at the Boulder Reservoir with a single loop 2.4-mile swim. Once finished in the water, the first transition will start the athletes on a beautiful 112-mile one-loop bike course in the city's vast open space. The bike will loop around Carter Lake and along the eastern plains of the Front Range before ending downtown at Boulder High School.
The two-loop run course is almost entirely on Boulder Creek Trail, winding along the creek and through city parks. Spectators will have multiple opportunities to cheer on the athletes and the last few steps of the day will take athletes up Pearl Street for a triumphant finish.
