Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

Luis Escobar has made a life around distance running. He has run with the Tarahumara who run as a way of life and with homeless people using running to get “back on their feet.” If his name sounds familiar, he’s also the ultrarunning photographer featured in Born to Run, by Chris McDougall. In this episode we ask him what it is about ultra running that draws him, about his trip to Copper Canyon, Mexico, about the Tarahumara, and about the obstacles we all face in life.

Lessons:
1. Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal.

2. When it feels like it’s over and you get up and keep moving, that’s when the magic happens.

3. People who still live steeped in tradition and culture and who don’t espouse material values are not poor. They often live a rich life.

What does it mean to be a man? Ryan Michler, creator and host of the “Order of Man” Podcast, is studying that question. He’s not doling out advice from a pedestal, but from a near decade long struggle to get his life, and marriage, in order. One thing he discovered was that the best men don’t put up a front of invincibility. Do the things that scare you, not to convince yourself that you’re brave and valorous, but because this is the fast track to growth and self knowledge.  Find out exactly what it takes to be a great human, this Spartan Up! What does it mean to be a man?

Lessons: 1. If you want to help others, start by getting your own house is in order.
 2. The position of strength is  one of humility: knowing what you don’t know, admitting it, and being eager to learn.
 3. Give yourself permission to experiment, to fail and grow through the process.

With eight thousand characters in Marvel Comics’ universe, even if you’re a rabid comic fan, you probably haven’t scratched the surface of their offerings. We talk with Mindy Hamilton, the SVP of global partnerships at this time honored brand, now under the mega company Disney. She started on her career track at a very young age when she assumed the editorial responsibilities of a newspaper she started with her friends. That love of collaboration and a passionate curiosity, helped drive her on the meandering and unexpected path to her current position. She shares what she’s learned along the way:

Lessons:
1. To effectively connect to your work, get tactile with it.

2. Don’t live in shame; move on.

3. Be a receptive listener; don’t always try to push your agenda, a common mistake.
