A behind the scenes look into working on a major tv show @NBCThisIsUs, the nuances of creativity, and not falling to the pressures of your society. Ken Olin is a Writer, Executive Producer, Director and actor who has directed many episodes of television for shows including the blockbuster TV show THIS IS US, as well as Brothers and Sisters, The West Wing, Alias and many more. In this conversation although this was our first time speaking together Ken and I had such a great flow, he is a great guy and you are going to love this chat it was as if I was catching up with a long time friend. Ken shares a lot about the nuances of his creative process and working as a major player in the show THIS IS US, which is one of my favourite shows so it was such a honour to speak with him about this. He shares about how he started out, and the differences between acting and directing, working with creative people and creating a healthy work culture. This conversation is for any who love creativity, has an interest in film and television, and great advice for working in your element and not falling to the pressures that your culture may expect from you. Ken also is vulnerable about raising his kids as well as managing his ambitions. And some great conversation about the hidden gifts of the pandemic. Questions I ask Ken… 4.32 - Where did the idea of the show THIS IS US come from? 6.20 - How do you think the views perceive the show? 9.30 - Where does the sense of connectivity come from with the show? It feels like a therapy session. 13.30 - Milos character and the nuances. 15.34 - Do actors decide certain parts of a role or is that scripted? 17.58 - How did you find such an amazing cast? 20.15 - Do you think being an actor makes you a better director, if so why? 23.54 - Do you miss acting? 26.36 - A common thread in your life that you can track, that took you into this world? 31.19 - The emerging generations observations of wanting to work in their calling, what’s your thoughts on this? 37.08 - This is us is speaking to human needs - loneliness, depression, racism… 38.33 - How do you switch off, hobbies, interests? 42.44 - Do you enjoy being a Dad? 46.30 - Quick fire questions… Something people often get wrong about you? Last tv show you binged watched? Favourite movie? Concert or show you’ll never forget? Favourite meal? What books are you reading? What would you like on your grave stone?

Spotting Narcissism In Yourself & Others - My 10 observations to recognise and manage it
Don’t forget to subscribe and share with me when you’re listening to this episode @PaulScanlonUK. Narcissism is all about a false self it’s a mask that people wear which slips over time and when it does you should be paying attention. It’s the fear of appearing ordinary which drives them to exaggeration and showing off to appear extraordinary. Don’t ever try to confront or change a narcissist it’s like trying to nail jelly to the wall. Wish them well and move away from their toxicity. Here are my 10 signs to look out for when it comes to narcissism to avoid in others and look out for if you have them in yourself. 1. They are self obsessed, self promoting and self absorbed whilst pretending to be interested in you 2. They brainwash you to believe that you need them in your life because their life is far superior 3. They manipulate you into their version of you 4. They make you question your thoughts and decisions in favour of theirs 5. They will never respect your boundaries because they only see their own importance 6. They don’t mind ignoring shaming minimising or isolating you to serve themselves 7. They will Gaslight and marginalise you then encourage and praise you simultaneously in the hope you don’t spot the manipulation 8. They use people because their agenda and priorities are always more important 9. They need people and relationships just like the rest of us but they’re unable to see others as equals 10. They will only want you in their world if you offer them financial security, status, support their projects or just generally stroke their ego in some way.

My Greatest Gift To You Is A Healthy Me
Your greatest gift to others is to be the healthiest version of you that you can be.I used to spend too much time working on others for me rather than working on me for them. Your personal health and well-being is the greatest gift you can give to the world. Personal development is the hardest work you will ever do, and often the least appreciated by those close to you. Make self improvement firstly for your own benefit then whether others notice or benefit from it at least you always will. You can’t give away what you don’t have. You can’t sustain withdrawals others make from your life without sufficient deposits that leave you with surplus. It doesn’t work with money or love or energy or life. You can’t love your neighbour with a love you have never given to yourself. --- Let me know when you're watching screenshot the episode and tag me in it @PaulScanlonUK and share with me your thoughts or a favourite quote.

The award for best supporting role goes to...
Most of us want to live epic lives and be the hero of our own stories, but what if I told you that it’s far greater to fill a supporting role in an epic story than an epic role in a supporting story? We all want to be top ranked leaders, but it’s better to be a great sergeant than a bad general. In this podcast episode, I want to discuss how our impact in the world can be far greater in roles that may not look as epic as we initially envision for ourselves. *Enjoying what you’re hearing?

Where Do You Love The Process?
Where you get excited about the process? Not just the outcome - the study, investigation, conversation, research - all the things that are involved in how to get a good outcome - than that is an indication of what your passions and strengths are. If you’re struggling to figure out where you’re heading in life or what your passions and strengths are the pay attention to where you love process. We are so driven by validation through results that we assume successful outcomes is where we should look. The secret and it is a secret because so few know it, is to look where you love the process not the results. Look at the creativity, study, planning, risk, uncertainty, struggle and effort that you love and there you will find yourself. Look for something where you love the process and the rest will follow.
