What do you do when you start to sense your week getting away from you? In this episode, we discuss a tool Mark uses to reset and recenter when the week becomes overwhelming or we fail to meet our expectations set out. He calls it the blank page exercise.

Who's Chesterton and why are we talking about his fence? In this episode, we discuss the benefits of "Second Order Thinking", a concept outlined in an article we came across recently. Listen in and find out what those benefits are, and what they possibly have to do with a fence.

What is a mission statement and its purpose? Do you have one? Does the company you work for? Is it just corporate-sounding jargon, and completely disregarded in daily dealings and interactions?
Is a mission statement a resource worth developing, or belongs in the "special filing cabinet" (the wastebasket 🗑)? Find out how we see it in today's episode all about mission statements. 🤓

Part 2!!
In this SECOND part of our FIRST guest episode, we continue the conversation with our better halves (@mcjepratt & @meagansternberg)! We chat about life, secret crushes, marriage, woodchucks and damp towels. Maybe as you see how THEY see it, you'll gain some insights to why WE see it the way we do. We had a blast sharing memories together, and we hope you enjoy this special episode of "How I See It"!

In a discussion on gender, and related issues (toxic masculinity, feminism, alternative lifestyles), do we manage to offend everyone? Hopefully not. As 2 men with wives and daughters, we discuss how we’ve been increasingly learning the value of gender, that gender is not equal to role, and many other lessons.

What does “a little more be alright” look like to the “How I See It” podcast? We chat about the idea of ads/endorsements, our growing audience (“53 more than we had!!”), how we should handle editing ourselves and poorly stated things, and most importantly, whether the blue tape holding the mic on the stand is the real MVP.

Today, we discuss being powerful/powerless. Starting with contemplation on the nuanced definitions words can take on (such as “Humor”), we move into consideration of the word “Power”—the powerlessness over our environment, and the power we may have over our response to it.

NUMBER 5!

Listen to Mark sarcastically explain the value of sarcasm in humor. No, he would NEEEEver do that. No really, he wouldn’t. Seriously, he’s not a sarcastic guy. But we do chat about humor & levity. When does it go too far? When could we benefit from a little more humor? Where do we get our dad/bad jokes? Find out in today’s episode!

Today, Mark asks Justin, “What’s your take on the Holy Spirit?” – This is a genuine “How I See It” conversation about a very personal topic for both of us—our beliefs on the Holy Spirit’s role in our lives. ...

In this episode, Justin and Mark discuss the value of changing our minds. Should we be open-minded? Will our brains fall out? Who should change their minds—boomers or millennials? Today we’ll work on solving all these mysteries in “How I See It” style.

Another episode coming your way on Tuesday! Hard to see it, but our mic “stand” consists of a phone holder and some blue tape. Mark maintains that some of the “magic” comes from that blue tape. 🤞 ...

Episode 2

Mark and Justin on “Markisms” and today’s topic: Integrity. They share their perspectives on it, its value in their lives, the process to learn that value, and tips for developing it (hint, you can't purchase it by the 5 gallon bucket at the General Store...).

Episode 1!

A (sometimes awkward!) introduction to this podcast, and to Mark and Justin, your hosts. We meander through a few of the potential themes, and future guests. We explain our desire is to mine the nuggets of truth that exist on both sides (and often in the middle) of difficult polarizing topics, all while gaining new perspective. We look forward to the journey and the process with you!
This is ”How We See It”!
