It’s that time again. Whenever I have the pleasure of interviewing a guest, I always have them back for a role reversal. JeffBrown returns to ask any three questions of his choosing.

First, have you seen Werewolves within? Also, can you clarify the difference between a park ranger and a forest ranger? This may seem like a simple yes or no answer, but you’d be surprised to learn the answer involves a reality show and unpacking how to differentiate between park and forest rangers.

Second, you host multiple podcasts. What is your favorite aspect of podcasting? (And which is your favorite?) I’ll give you a hint. The first part is an easy answer for me and has to do with the messages on the shows I host. The answer to the second part may or may not surprise you.

Lastly, you are always reading at least three books at any given time. One business book. One Self Development book. And one book purely for entertainment. If you were to recommend one book in each category, what books would you recommend? Well, you will have to listen to find out.

If you have been listening to the show for a while, you may be familiar with the name JeffBrown (and you know why it needs to be said in one breath). Jeff is the host of the Read to Lead Podcast. He is here discussing his new book, Read to Lead.

Jeff has been working on his podcast for eight years, and over that time, he has interviewed a few amazing authors. Jesse Wisnewski approached Jeff with a book idea he had previously pitched to a publisher. They rejected it due to a lack of platform. Jesse's initial idea, The Readers Edge, resonated with Jeff. Jeff joined the project, which they renamed Read to Lead, and the rest is history.

We have all heard that knowledge is power. And knowledge has long been associated with books and reading. As Jeff explains, one of the most powerful things about reading is the ability to gain a modicum of functional mastery on a topic by reading five books on any given topic. The idea that you can pick up a book for twenty bucks and walk away with someone’s expertise is astounding. No wonder we equate reading with power.

We live in a time where there are many ways to assimilate books. In addition to hard copies, we also have digital and audio formats. Different books call for different mediums. Audiobooks are great for entertainment and books meant to change how you think. However, books that we want to retain and understand on a deeper level are better digested in traditional print. There is something special that happens mentally and spatially when we read physical books. It impacts our retention and comprehension.

Jeff offers a few tips for getting the most out of the books that you read. First, challenge yourself to pick up a physical copy and read. Second, use the Pomodoro technique to help you focus, reading for 25 or 50-minute increments. Then start a new Pomodoro and make your notes. Third, try listening to an audiobook at 1.75 speed while reading along in the physical book. It will allow you to read quicker and retain more. Last, teach what you are learning to others. Teaching helps you to synthesize what you have learned, so you retain and comprehend more.

My family and I just wrapped up our stay at Glacier National Park. We had the pleasure of staying at the Granit Park Chalet during our stay. After arriving home and processing our trip, I have six lessons I learned from this trip that I am sharing with you. Jeff Noel is returning today to go over those lessons with me.

  1. Don’t do the work of a mule. There are some things you don’t need to be the one doing. Identify if there is work that you should not be doing. If you find something, figure out who can do it for you.
  2. Enjoy the present moment. The moment you are in right now is important; enjoy it. Challenge yourself to make it last a little stronger and a little longer.
  3. Eventually, you have to teach what you have learned. Why do we learn if not to teach others? 
  4. Leaders create more leaders. Set someone else up to be the first to see and discover.
  5. If you focus on the priorities, the rest doesn’t matter. We are prone to worry and think about a lot of things that don’t matter. They may look like they do, but they really don’t. Focusing on your priorities will help you focus on what really matters.
  6. Last, you can serve the servers. There is no reason we can’t make sure that those who serve us are served as well. Do something nice for the people who serve you. Make it your purpose, that you want to be a bright spot in their day.

Jeff also made a point that is worth mentioning. Practice, over time, creates compound interest. Anything you practice, over time, gets easier and more like second nature; like taking a family vacation and coming away with life lessons.

Jill Young is back for our traditional follow-up podcast, where I have my previous guests return to ask me three questions of their choosing. Now, the difference of having a coach doing the asking is pretty evident by the questions she asks. Take a look.

You have had multiple podcast shows what is a story that one listener shared with you that you knew your podcast changed their life? I can’t answer this question without sharing Tanner’s story. Hands down, it is the first one that comes to mind.

Second, how in the world did you become a financial analyst? I know I may come across as entrepreneurial, but if you are good with numbers, it’s hard not to get pigeonholed as the numbers guy. You’ll hear what I mean in my answer.

Lastly, Jill asks what makes a great podcast partner? I have been honored to work with a lot of different partners on multiple podcasts, and one element remains true across the board. And remember Tanner from earlier; he plays a part in this one too.

This episode took a slight detour from our normal three-question follow-up, but I think it was a bonus. Curiosity is an advantage, and as we learn to ask great questions, we can get beyond the surface and explore the deeper levels in most areas.
