RoleyShow
A (multiple) personality driven improvised podcast about current events, culture, and life. New episodes M-F.

After yesterday's episode, I thought I'd just shoot the breeze for a minute and not try to get too spun up. Thanks to everyone who left me feedback about yesterday. It helped.

After sharing some good news, I launched into what can only be described as a Classic Roley Rantasm over the months-long clusterbang we've been subjected to.

Today, let's talk about Charm.  Now, I decided to use the term charm, because there's a certain portion of my brain that really wants to gameify this stuff, and I remember Charm being some kind of old Role Playing Game character trait.  I'm sure someone has figured out how to make this stuff a game with Experience Points in the real world.  Chris Hardwick put a good start into it in his book The Nerdist Way, by having you create a 'Character Tome', but I wonder if there is--if you'll pardon the expression--an app for that?  
 
I'm sorry.  
 
Charm, for this purpose, is your ability to influence others. To have them take you seriously. Whether that's functioning as a role model, or it's trying to get someone to buy something from you is your business.   I also believe that if you have this ability, it also means that you are using this power for good, and not evil.  I think that's important.

On today's podcast, let's talk a little about effectiveness.  I define effectiveness as your ability to Get. Shit. Done.   I'm not really talking about workrate, which is how much shit you can turn out, but rather HOW you work.  HOW you work is actually more important than how much you work.  
 
It's taken me literally FOREVER to figure that last part out, because of how I was raised and what I have always believed.

Today, I want to talk to you about commitment.  To me, commitment means those things in your life that you have placed in a priority, that you have carved out time for, that happens in a regular interval. 
 
This is HARD for me to talk about on a few levels.

Today, I want to talk to you about focus. For the purposes of this talk, let's define Focus as the things in your life that has your attention. Those things that have a priority, although I will say it's not always something that you have placed in priority, but circumstances might have. It may also be things that you have placed in priority because other things in your life that NEED to have a priority scare you.

Part 1 of a series this week.  On today's show, I want to talk to you about values. Now, this means a bunch of different things to a bunch of different people, but for the purposes of this talk, let's define values like this. Your values are a definition of who you are, shown by what you do, not by what you say.
