Depressed?

June 17th, 2017 by Gary Crow

Play

Depression is not a topic most of us like to think about all that much. Why? Well, it’s depressing.

 

Even so, many of us are depressed and some of us are seriously depressed. For those of us, this episode may help in understanding and, more importantly, may help in taking steps to manage the depression in ways that can reduce and help get past the depression. If you listen for you or for some one who matters to you, it is likely worth the few minutes it takes to think with us about depression.

The Friendship Quiz

June 2nd, 2017 by Gary Crow

Play

Marriage is both potentially very satisfying but sometimes quite exasperating. Hopefully the satisfying times far outnumber those times when you have to wonder why you ever thought this would be a good arrangement. In this episode of the Audio Tidbits Podcast, let’s think about how you can assure that those exasperating times are kept at a minimum and do not get out of hand.

 

Are you and your spouse good friends? If so, you have a strong basis for working out any issues or difficulties that may pop up. If not, the little problems, disagreements and conflicts are more likely to fester than they are to be worked through or perhaps simply overlooked.

 

We have a short quiz you can take to evaluate yourself as a friend to your spouse. Of course, the quiz applies equally well to any ongoing friendship relationship you have with someone close to you. Please listen, take the quiz and see how it fits with your understanding of friendship.

Transactional Negotiations or Do I Have A Deal for You

May 30th, 2017 by Gary Crow

Play

In this podcast, a Transactional Negotiations model is presented. The approach to deal making has been tested over many years and in a wide range of situations, including negotiations involving millions of dollars. The approach works equally well in the kind of situations everyone has to manage both at home and at work. For that reason, the examples in the podcast focus on everyday situations at home. Just keep in mind that the approach works whatever the circumstances, whatever the stakes.

 

Please listen to the podcast and then practice, practice, practice.

Denny Has Retired — Let’s Remember

May 27th, 2017 by Gary Crow

Play

I have told you before about Denny, the world’s 16th greatest guide dog. Well, Denny was with me for over ten years but the day finally came for him to retire. I won’t go into the details but Denny’s health had gotten to the point where being a guide dog was no longer possible.

 

Yes, it was very sad. He was unable to work anymore but his heart was still very much up to doing what he had done for over a decade. On his last day, he came to have his harness put on and so wanted to go with me again. It was not to happen but his spirit was ever willing.

 

Now I have Oliver. He is a twenty month old black lab and is eager to be my guide dog. We spent two weeks training together at Pilot Dogs after his six months of guide dog training. The two weeks were for the two of us to begin to bond and get used to working together. Oliver is home now and learning about his new environment and responsibilities. So far, things are going quite well.

 

To remember Denny and the five other Pilot dogs that came before Oliver, I am re-posting a podcast about my first six Pilot dogs. It will be a while before I am ready to update the podcast to include Oliver but his day in that spotlight is out there on the far horizon. He is Pilot dog seven for me and I expect we will have as satisfying a journey as with each of his six predecessors.

 

For now, join me in remembering Dr. Pepper, Fellow, Blacky, Ben, Quincy, and Professor Denny. Oliver has big paws to follow but is, I am sure, totally up to the challenge.

It’s All About Me

I assume that you like me sometimes need to deal with people who drive you up the wall. When having to interact with them, the frustration factor is at the center of your world. Life for you is at least tedious and at worst stressing you enough to make you think about finding a place to hide where you never have to deal with people again.

 

The reality is that the people who drive you up the wall are not going away. They and you are here to stay. The good news is that you don’t have to let them continue to drive you up the wall. They can be brought into line and you are just the person who can handle them.

 

Let me share a few examples along with some strategies and techniques you can use to put a stop to the attitudes and behavior that are driving you up the wall. Please listen to the Audio Tidbits Podcast to get the full scoop on I Players.
