The Accountability Call Podcast #10


For the second week in a row, Jon stumps me with his opening serenade. Who the hell are the Chainsmokers? And get off my lawn!

Jon makes a good point about how having kids essentially makes you act like a kid for several years, or at least live in a kids’ world for several years. I am definitely immersed in that world!

Do we all reach a point in our lives where we simply stop listening to new music because we have such an eclectic mix from a lifetime of listening to music? Do our brains get full with music and pop culture info?

We talk Cars 3 and how awesome it is to share experiences both with and through our kids.

Is it possible to find a balance with our kids between structured and unstructured time while they’re out of school? Jon and I are definitely trying. We also talk about the importance of letting our kids make mistakes, even though it can be really messy at times!

Jon talks organization, or lack thereof, and we muse about our attempts to do a little bit each day instead of letting things pile up to point of having to take a whole day to get something done. It’s easier to keep up than catch up.

I came across a quote from the book Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday: “Impressing people is utterly different from being truly impressive.”

Jon’s son is trying to find a job over the summer. A quote that sticks out this week is, “If it doesn’t open, it’s not your door.”

As always, we hope you enjoy!
