Mastering Midlife turns 200 today. Have I learned anything talking to over 150 really smart, insightful people? Sure have! Today’s podcast is a quick synopsis of the common themes in relationship, health, leadership, and spirituality these experts shared.

"I never met a happy greedy rich person.” – Mark J. Silverman


Today on Mastering Midlife:


  • Embrace the suck. Want to lose weight, change a habit, learn a skill? Be willing to be uncomfortable.
  • Sex and intimacy are not the same thing. Sex happens. Intimacy is created.
  • Grief is real, its unpredictable, doesn’t fit in a box, and lasts as long as it lasts.
  • Health, Fitness and Nutrition is a personal journey. Nobody has the answer for all of us.
  • Women cannot be men. Nor should they want to be. They can be incredibly successful and powerful in the male dominated world, but they cannot imitate men.
  • Want to be a great parent? Deal with your own stuff.
  • Rock Stars, NFL Players, NBA Players, Elite Soldiers, and even Porn Stars all “deal.” There is no escaping humanity for any of us.
  • Porn/Drug/Gambling/Work Addictions, Mental Illness, and Depression are everywhere and touch everyone. We need to bring it into the light.
  • Failure, Tragedy and our lowest points come with incredible gifts. If we look for them.
  • Fear screws with everything. Deal with fear, the world opens up.
  • The Hustle and Grind crowd are empty and broken. Yeah, I said it.
  • You need a Posse’… find one, create one, but get one. No need to go it alone.
  • Generosity and service are the way to true success and fulfillment. Only always.
  • I don’t think I can count.
