Hari Kalymnios-More to sleep than meets the eye

Hari Kalymnios - More to sleep than meets the eye

Hari Kalymnios

In this episode we talked about sunny weather and the way that sun and daylight impacts our performance.

Instead of having an audio alarm to wake you up in a shot, Hari has a light alarm that gets slightly brighter and brighter to wake you up gently. Just like the rays of the sun,

If you want something doing - give it to a busy person is a phrase that has cropped up over time - Hari used it again on the call.

I never realised that JFK had such a reputation with the ladies. Hari would be stuck in a lift (elevator) with Socrates, Jessica Alba and Jennifer Lopez. Interesting lift (elevator).

We also discussed Michael Jackson albums and thankfulness we are still alive.

​Get "The thought gym" - By Hari Kalymnios

​Finally – a book which succeeds in addressing the area most other diet,health and exercise books miss – your thoughts!

What’s the same thing about every diet, health or exercise book you've ever tried?............YOU!

And have you noticed that time after time, you get the same results?

Well, the reason is that you haven’t addressed the key to all change first.
Your thoughts. Before trying to change your diet or embark on a new health regime, you must first look at changing the thoughts that go into your mind. Otherwise you are almost guarantee a huge disappointment.

Phil DeLuca is a relationship coach.

The internet and all the changes in behaviour that it has brought has made his job much more difficult over the last few years.

We talked about, amongst other things, Crocodile brain syndrome. (Watch for it - it's everywhere).

Staying sane by turning off the TV cropped up again.

Phil can be contacted via https://lesstalkmorelove.com/

We might be accused of discriminating against people with purple hair.

I know a few people with purple (and sometimes other) coloured hair.

I don't know anyone in a position of power or authority with purple hair..

If you are such a person - please contact me - I would love to have you on the show.

We talk about the crocodile brain - and remembering that this is the 21st century - not the 1970's. (Purple hair aside).

Mo from The three stooges crops up, The good life crops up - clip below.

(The good life is a 1970's British sitcom) - synopsis below.

Do me a favour - head to Facebook. Scroll around for a few minutes (take your time...) and then come back and send me a tweet @jonsenior1 if you find ANYTHING interesting or useful. ANYTHING AT ALL.

Which just goes to prove Diana Bianchi's theory that FACEBOOK is for BORED PEOPLE.

We talk about Thor's hammer, The middle of the Kai river, Bangalore, Silicone Valley in India and more.

Arbitrary pleasant events crop up also.

These are those micro-dopamine hits when we see or hear something random or unexpected that, in the bigger picture of our life, is pretty meaningless. It just gives short, temporary release from the monotony.

Listen to the show - or if you are pushed for time - watch the video below.

The Frances Robbins interview was one of the first with the new set of questions.

If you have listened to many episodes, you know that I do put some effort into the questions.

They are designed to be, on the face of it, quite flippant. But on further inspection, more and more thought provoking.

Of course, being ex-military - Frances Robbins knew exactly what to take if she was marooned on a desert island.

And just rattled them off quick style.

(If you want to know - you will need to listen to the whole episode).

We also discussed what it is like to try to persuade young top gun style men to stop drinking when she was old enough to be their mother.

Other stuff that cropped up - obstacles, ex-military culture and more.

Maggie Georgopolous – Up the ladder in a skirt

How far is it from Australia to Scotland?

​It's a long way.

What is it like to swim in open water in Scotland? We talk about this.

We also talk about what the impact of Prince William and Prince Harry talking about mental health.

We talk about local councils collecting data for the sake of collecting data - and maybe - just maybe to stick posters up on the wall saying

"We support your mental health" 

We talked about burnout in the fitness industry.

Maggie's most unusual place she has visited is Libya and Iraq (Erbil) and the difference between ancient ruins there and ancient ruins in places that are more built up - like Greece and Rome.

Remember though - don't try this at home kids - they probably aren't the safest places to go...

​Up the ladder in a skirt - Maggie Georgopoulos

​Are you worried that as a woman, you lack full control over your career, or struggle with whom to turn to for support in your leadership journey? You may feel forced to make compromising life choices to advance your career—ones that your male counterparts do not.

Women can thrive in business and reach the top of the leadership ladder, though it often doesn’t appear that way, as few seem to make it there.

Today’s business climate is filled with opportunities for women to climb just as high and be just as successful, though recognizing these opportunities can be challenging. Women can thrive in male dominated fields and can help to make businesses even more successful with their own brand of leadership.

The normalite way of thinking is to try and work harder and harder than your competitor.

There are loads of tools and software out there to scan for backlinks and reverse engineer what people are doing.

Instead of going on endless fools errands and blind alleys figuring which of these tools to use (and paying for the privilege), Hope Zvara took a different approach.

By the way - the top results for Yoga on YouTube is Yoga with Adrienne. She has almost 4 million subscribers and over 400 videos. 

Do you think you can compete with that?

NO I thought not.

What Hope Zvara has done is to take work a bit smarter.

Who is the typical audience for conventional yoga teachers like Adrienne?

Students, semi pro and wanna be semi pro athletes.

Who would benefit from Yoga?

ummm - everybody.

So by dropping all the ritual chanting and other stuff, Hope Zvara has written herself into the Funky Thinkers text book.

(When you get to a stop sign - Instead of drumming your fingers on the dashboard - think of this as a queue to turn your head to the left and the right...)

If you have listened to more than a handful of Funky Thinkers episodes, you will realise that everyone gets the same questions.

It is just my way of stopping those people who come on a show and pitch their product or book or book camp or whatever.

I don't know about you listening - but I sometimes change the questions.

For some reason, when asked the question

"If you had a time machine - where would you go to ?" 

A large percentage of people said ancient Greece, Rome, Aztecs, Incas.

The second question that needed changing was

"If you had a magic wand - what would you get"

Many people would say "Money" or "Time"

Money is good but it is a boring answer. Time just means the money to employ other people to do the junk you don't want to do.

Lieze had the best answer 

"We already have a wand - it is our mind"

THAT IS WHY YOU NEED to listen to Funky Thinkers. To rail away from the salespeople and schill merchants on most other podcasts.

Jennifer Gardner-Fed up with social media

Jennifer Gardner

Jennifer Gardner is fed up with social media.

I am pretty sure that there are many people like Jennifer. 

It is "uncool" to say so.

When everyone else is having such a good time, living such perfect lives.

It's hard to admit - to go against the tide.

To think Funky.

Maybe that's you.

Maybe you will get an insight into the real non airbrushed, selfie ready, instagram following world.

Jennifer says that she detoxes by just sitting out on her back porch starring at the sky, listening and looking at the wildlife.

When was the last time you did this? (Without holding a pod or a pad or a mobile device).

You should try it. 

Start though, by listening to the duologue below.

Tapping into original Funky Thinkers with Julio Briones

After a brief trip round Bruce Springsteen album names, we settle down to business.

Capitalism - the running of business for a profit tends to focus on the cool stuff.

Very little focus and attention is placed on what happens when someone is unable (or unwilling) to carry out their job.

Julio Briones has thought of that.

Answerman Speciality Services can provide help, advice and consulting when family members or employees have been arrested, got into trouble with drugs, legal issues or anything which is likely to take their mind off the issue of working or being productive.

We talk about punk rock - not this modern new fangled stuff - the original 1970's acts. The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Damned, The Stranglers. 

Which is interesting - because recently, there was a big thing in the news about Madonna at 60. 

Well, I have to say - there would be no Madonna (or Spice Girls or Girls Aloud or Rihanna or Lady Gaga any of those without an original Funky Thinker - Siouxsie Sioux. There is a video at the bottom of this page.

Remember - Funky Thinkers is about getting an idea or an insight that you wouldn't ordinarily have got - by hanging round with "the usual crowd."

Surviving arrest - The complete guide - Julio Briones

​When I embarked on my own journey through the criminal justice system, my family and I did not even know where to begin. It was a terrible time and not having the proper information and understanding caused us to make many mistakes, leading to my being convicted and sentenced to 39 years.

I used my time to learn the law and, more importantly, how the system worked. 

Today, I share what I have learned with you in the hopes that you could avoid some of the same mistakes I made.

Redefining Success - Julio Briones

​If I were to introduce you to a 24-year-old man that barely graduated high school, joined the Army at 17, who suffers from mild dyslexia and is about to begin a journey that will carry him through the next 13 years, just over 10 of which he will spend in prison? What would you consider to be his chances at a successful life?

Would you even be able to define a scenario where success is even possible?

Pradeepa Narayanswamy

Why always get the middle seat is a question that I get an answer in my conversation with Pradeepa Narayanswamy.

She found her life's purpose through a difficult and painful journey.

I get a pretty good guide on the difference between a consultant, a coach and a counsellor. (Not what you think).
