Ep. 46 - Consumerism and Commentary, Throwback Episode!
(Originally recorded in April 2020) Tonight we're going live, talking about a couple of things that we've had on our mind lately, especially as the world keeps getting seemingly more strange every day. Consumerism, and commentary. In this time of quarantine or isolation, a lot of us are realizing that Amazon account has been a lot more active these days, and if you're spending any more time online, you'll notice the comment sections of almost any app, article, or post aren't exactly filled with positivity. What's going on? Vaney and Dan try to break down and chat a bit on consumerism, its driving factors, its impact, and also on the impact our commentary has on everything around us.

Ep. 45 - Adapt and Adopt. Sometimes Change Is A Good Thing.
When unexpected things happen and you have to adapt, do you learn anything? Sometimes when you have something come up and you have to make major changes, or you're forced to adjust something, it's not a bad thing to keep some of those practices. Case and point, when we went through 2020, so many people and teams had to adapt, but we also learned that there are things we needed to adopt. Meaning - learning that lesson and making that adjustment permanent. In this episode (originally recorded, May 2020), Dan and Vaney talk from their homes in Downtown Sioux Falls during the middle of the pandemic and reflect on some of the things they've learned about themselves through that process.

Why is it important to have a vision and what does that mean? How do dreams help us pursue and accomplish our goals? We're diving into this really ambiguous topic of vision and dreams and unpacking what it means for our lives. Bottom line - having a vision or a dream, and giving if life, body and taking tangible steps to get there is CRUCIAL to building the life you desire and deserve.

Ep. 38 - Transition...When, How and What?
Last time we talked about letting go...and this week we're back talking about what happens after you do that. Transition is a big word that we hear a lot, some of us have probably used this a time or two when we've been going through some changes or shifts. What does a transition mean and how do we navigate these better? (If you're a real OG fan you'll remember Episode 4 when we first brought up this topic...)

How the heck are we supposed to move on? Well, sit down and listen to Vaney, Dan and now joining us for the first time, Bri, as we talk about things we've had to let go of over the years and how we did it.

Ep. 36 - Deposits and Withdrawals
What happens when you only make withdrawals from your account? It tends to drop and eventually, you'll run out of money. We know that in order to keep our balance positive you have to make deposits too. Think about how you treat your relationships, at work, at home, in day to day life... A lot of us tend to make way more withdrawals than we do deposits. Think about how you can intentionally make deposits into those around you, the people you work with, the people you live with and the people you interact with every day. You will be surprised at how much changes and how good it feels to pour into others.

Ep. 35 - Disagree, To A Degree
Right now, more than ever, people seem divided and polarized. It feels like there's no middle ground, lack of reason and a lot of negative emotions on any side of most major issues. But we think there's a better way. What if we understood that for the most part, we only disagreed to a degree. What if we looked for growth and common ground, rather than disagreement and division. We think that there's a better way to have discussions, both large and small. We think it's possible to disagree to a degree, find common ground and move forward together.

Ep. 32 - Participate!
Something we say a lot at Think 3D is "doers only". What that means is simply that someone can have something to say about your performance, your actions, etc. - they just can't do it from their couch. Something we firmly believe in and encourage everyone to adopt is the fact that the price of an opinion is participation. We have some big things happening both at a community level and a national level, and now, arguably more than ever people have a lot of opinions about what should or shouldn't be happening. But some how we've lost the understanding that we need to not only just give opinions, but support those opinions with our actions and participation. Get off your couch, go participate.

EP. 31 - Participation and Ownership In Your Organization
In order for businesses and organizations to create incredible cultures, we know that participation and buy-in are requirements. But, how do you create that participation and level of ownership? By and large, businesses need to put in the intentional effort to build participation in their teams and look for ways to create ownership.

Ep. 29 - Change
Sam Cooke said it best, "A change is gonna come". One of the inevitable and most necessary things in life is change. However, sometimes the abrupt or forced nature of change can be jarring. Especially right now. We look at change as something that we can do, not something that happens to us. And when we choose to develop and EVOLVE over time, even larger scale, abrupt changes can feel less impactful or jarring due to our preparedness. As always - catch full episodes by visiting letsthink3d.com/podcast and subscribing to your favorite platform or listen and subscribe through Anchor.

Ep. 28 - The Power of Optimism
When we think about optimism, sometimes it's easy to think about having your head in the clouds, or living with rose-colored glasses on. Right now as we face down a global health crisis, it can be difficult to 1) see the good in anything and 2) be vocal about optimism when by and large most sources of information are negative, speculative or flat-out false. Vaney and Tamien break down the core concepts of optimism, talking about how optimism doesn't end with just having a positive thought, or hoping for the best. True and proactive optimism seeks out ways to influence or control the factors around us that we can change, and to put into perspective the things we can't. True optimism is an action and as Vaney says - nothing of significance happens without intention.

Ep. 27 - Spending Time In Your Mind
What does it mean to actually spend time in your mind? Over the course of the last three years we have asked thousands of people this question, "how much time, in minutes, would you say you have spent intentionally getting to know the way your mind works, troubleshooting it, adjusting it, learning how you and your mind work and work best?" The answer is often astoundingly low. We'll spend hours working to understand the OS of our favorite device, phone, computer, program etc. - but the single greatest computer in the universe - our own mind - often goes over looked. To take and spend even just 20 minutes a week, in reflection, thought, breaking down some of the ways your mind works will help you double down on your strengths, develop self-awareness and get into your flow state. As always follow us @Think3DSolutions on all socials - www.letsthink3d.com for regular updates. Dan @ Think 3D
