Episode 24 – How can I have more fun with boring tasks?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Arzu’s question:

“How can I have more fun with boring tasks?”

We all have parts of our lives or work that are important but not necessarily overflowing with fun and excitement on the surface right?

Tune in to Episode 24 of the #NotSoSerious Life to see how Steve and JG bring fun TO our own tasks and activities.

We also talk a bit about outsourcing, delegation and breaking through any self-imposed barriers to utilizing the gifts of others when it makes sense.

Plus Steve shares that the concepts of “boring” and “fascinating” don’t actually exist! #mindblown #POW

How about you?

Besides music and “bribery”, how else do you make the seemingly “not-so-fun” into something you enjoy!?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Richie Ravioli’s question:

“How do I stop letting my mother turn me into a negative person when I’m around her?”

I think we finally figured out the missing link as to why Kellogg’s hasn’t sponsored us yet.  JG shares a powerful sales lesson and we kick it up a notch to make ourselves irresistible to their shrewd business and marketing minds!

Now back to the matter at hand!

In this episode, JG shares the alternative to being triggered and sucked into a typhoon of negativity and Steve shares a simple and powerful mathematical equation to keep you calm and help you convert the stress of a negative person into the amusement of a movie!  …and he proves that Jason is horrible at math!

Plus you will hear about the really tempting job offer that Steve and JG recently received.  Don’t worry; we turned it down so we could keep focusing on the show for all of you!

We want to hear from you!

How will you use the tips we shared in your own relationships to keep others negativity from hijacking your happiness?

Episode 22 – How do you turn an idea into a reality?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Aaron’s question:

How do you turn an idea into a reality?

We may be going a little loopy today as we play a game of “Name that Beatle” AND JG does a mentalist trick on Steve that is sure to offend any real magicians who watch the show!

Once we got over our shenanigans, we dove into Aaron’s fantastic question about taking action to execute on an idea.

We have ALL experienced having an amazing idea for a book or a business or some other adventure that we get really excited about and then, the resistance creeps in and we are left with one more unfinished dream or project.

JG and Steve are here for you and share the way they go from “Fantasy” to “PLANtasy”.

Steve outlines his low-tech, old school and super effective way to brainstorming ideas on action steps and JG shares the exact method he used to create a 3-month training program in a very similar fashion!

AND we may have an idea for yet another sponsor since Kelloggs still hasn’t called.  What do you gals and guys think about our new prospect?

It’s time for YOU to weigh in…

Drop us a comment below and tell us what you do to overcome resistance and get into action on your own ideas.

Episode 21 – How do you feel about Manifestos? Do either of you have one?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Faith’s question:

How do you feel about Manifestos? Do either of you have one?

Tune in today to Episode 21 of TNSSL to hear Steve’s thoughts on the power of having our personal internal commitments (constitution) written down AND the question he shares to ask yourself before undertaking this or any other exercise like it.
(Psuedo-spoiler, the question is not “does everyone else say I SHOULD do it?”)

Plus somehow Bobby Brown becomes a part of the discussion?!

Then JG pulls back the curtain (don’t worry, he is fully dressed) and shares his personal “WHY” statement and the super simple way he keeps it front of mind to guide him on who he is being and what he is doing!

How about you?

Leave us a comment below and tell us what you do to keep your values and commitments front of mind and how you stay on track.  Do you have something written down or some other physical reminder of what you are working towards or who you need to be in order to live your ideal life?

Episode 20 – How can I be playful in a business setting without looking unprofessional?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Steve’s question:

“How can I be playful in a business setting without looking unprofessional?”

Playfulness in a professional environment – does it mean you should walk into a business meeting and start goofing off and being a class clown like JG did for the first 18 years of his life? 

Find out today as we tease out the SPIRIT of play vs. the action of playing and what the goal of playfulness is for Steve.

JG also shares how his version of playfulness helped him to connect more authentically and to strengthen his relationships with colleagues and clients back in his corporate days.

And we give a great big shout out of appreciation to Inner Circle Members Jackie and Jenelle for their love and support of the show!

P.S. – Stay tuned to the end for proof that you can neither dress JG up nor take him anywhere.  Watch as he ruins his workspace and invites all of the ants in his building to feast on his office.

We want to hear from you!

How have you been able to balance a playful way of being with a professional demeanor in your own life?

Episode 19 – How do you make a romantic relationship work when you hold opposing perspectives of the world?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer the viewer question:

“How do you make a romantic relationship work when you hold opposing perspectives of the world?”

Whether this was a legitimate question or just an attempt to land us in the doghouse, today’s question brings JG and Steve’s MUCH better halves (Alicia and Kathy, respectively) into the spotlight!

Steve shares how he welcomes Kathy’s opposing views and JG shares the 3-step “gentle” process that Alicia used to help transform him from a helpless, angry victim into a powerful, self-leading owner!

Time for you to weigh in!

How do you work (or play) with a significant other who has opposing views or philosophies from yours?  Does anything we shared today seem like it would be helpful in your personal relationships?

Also, to our Inner Circle members, share pictures of the SWAG BAGS we sent you on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or wherever else you hang out online (and tag us) so JG can finally find out what surprises Steve put in the packages!

Episode 18 – Why do you think some people experience real transformation in their lives and others don’t?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Caroline’s question:

“Why do you think some people experience real transformation in their lives and others don’t?”

JG embraces his inner “Rainbow Rasta” as the team talk about the ONE thing they each think is vital to real transformation in our lives (both to occur and to stick!).

Also, Steve answers the question of “Why you NEED to change”, JG talks about the two (seemingly opposite) sides of the transformation coin AND Steve teaches JG some French!

PLUS, we shout out two of our amazing Inner Circle members, Mandy and Christina who we are so grateful to for helping spread the word about our show!

We want to hear from you…

Episode 17 – How do I strengthen my mindset and believe more in myself?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Malcolm’s question:

“How do I strengthen my mindset and believe more in myself?”

Besides having TWO new possible leads for sponsorships (since Kelloggs is STILL dragging their feet) we also talk about the beliefs, worries and judgments we may carry with us when we try something for the first time, like starting a new business.

Plus JG and Steve share two alternatives to believing in yourself that are both powerful and practical – IF you are willing to test them out!

Tell us what YOU think…

Have you ever tried to uncover evidence from your past successes as a way to jumpstart your activity on a new project or opportunity?

Where else do you get stuck on “believing” in yourself that holds you back from taking action?

Episode 16 – How can I stop disagreements with my spouse from becoming blaming matches?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer the viewer question:

“Anytime my spouse and I have a disagreement, it turns into a blaming match. How can I stop that?”

Steve’s celebrity status may be going to his head after a recent breakfast outing he had BUT we are going to try to stay on track for Episode 16 of The Not-So-Serious Life!

Since “Why won’t you just listen to me?!?!?” and “Calm Down!!” don’t seem to work in diffusing conflict, maybe this episode will help you have productive, relationship-building “disagreements” with your spouse (and other people in your life) a little more gracefully and effectively.

JG talks about what he believes blame really means, how it can be a gift and the question he asks himself when in a potentially emotional convo with his wife to slow him down and bring him back to reality.

Steve also shares a really powerful reframe of blame and how to go from what we think we need to do in those situations to a place of love, understanding and a Not-So-Serious interpretation of the blame.

Plus, stay tuned til the end to see Jason’s Not-So-Serious version of absolute freedom!

Do you ever get into blaming matches with your significant other or co-workers or friends?

Drop us a comment below and let us know if you think the reframes and tips we shared may work in your own difficult conversations or disagreements.

JG and Steve Theme Song and DANCE PARTY!

We have a Not-So-Serious Life theme song!

Steve and JG received an amazing surprise recently from one of our Not-So-Serious VIPs in the form of a custom-written and performed Theme Song JUST for our show!

Peter Sykes did an absolutely wonderful job creating a fun, light-hearted and totally chill song and it inspired us to do a…DANCE PARTY!

If you want to download the song by itself, click here!

We had such a blast just letting it all hang out and having FUN with our lives for a few minutes and hope that it puts a smile on your face (and maybe even inspires you to dance along with us).

Now here is where things get REALLY fun…

We are convinced that everyone could use a big dose of light, love, laughter and levity in their world and so we want to see how many people we can get to see this video today so that they can be in HIGH SPIRITS for the rest of the day!

Will you help us spread the smiles and the spirit?  

If you want to help turn our movement into a movement, share the youtube video with the people you love, like (or even dislike) and be a part of their Not-So-Serious transformation!

I know that if we work together, we can easily get 5,000 people into motion today!

Are you in?

As always, thank you for your love and support! We truly appreciate all of you tuning in and being a part of our big, happy family!
