usa-1974142_1920

Take responsibility for where you’ve been and for where you’re going. Even if something is beyond your control — like gravity, for instance — you get to control how you respond to outside influences.

Episode 35: You don’t know everything — put stuff in your head!

friends-1610343_1280

You can’t do it all by yourself, and guess what? You don’t have to! We talk about working together, and more importantly, realizing you don’t know it all and you can bring in outside experts through books and movies and podcasts and such.

Episode 34: It’s OK to be wrong

statue-1477830_1280

Why stick to your guns just to stick to your guns? If you’re wrong, it’s OK — admit it and move on! Kelvin talks about why that’s important, and Josh gives an example of when he was wrong and he’s very grateful he was able to admit it.

Episode 33: Live your life

13188087_140210623051212_1581251165_n
A black guy and a Jew step into the ocean. See more life on Kelvin’s Instagram. Or Josh’s, I guess.

“Never have lives less lived,” the comic Dennis Miller once said, “been more chronicled.” We see the best of us on social media. Be sure to live your life for you, not for Facebook.

In this episode, Josh mentions a fake Instagram account that is an anti-alcoholism PSA. He says the account is Louisa Depage; the correct account is Louise.Delage.
