Early Thoughts on a Cruise Ship

“Just let go of control… I began this trip with a decision to go with the flow… but then…”

For the first three days of international air travel and a brief time in Stockholm I was under the spell of “going with the flow.” Yes, inconvenient things occurred, as they always do. But I was living in the charmed world of life, and not the selfish world according to Charlie. Three days uninterrupted by… me. If only I would have continued along that path.

Show Notes 

Today we a once again doing a show with one of my very favorite friends, very sought-after high-performance coach, with a new discipline—as a neuroplastician. Which will obviously be the prominent focus on the podcast today. 

As to Ellie’s credits… they would take half the show to list them. Still… Ellie’s bestselling book, Feeling Forwards, is endorsed by Tony Robbins and remains popular. She is a university lecturer, coach to very successful people, and is currently working on a doctorate relating the mind/body connection with quantum physics. Huh???

Pat Wetzel: #322 Intuition-Knowing Without Knowing Why

July 3, 2024 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes 

Our guest today, Pat Wetzel, is a blogger, soaring pilot, and award-winning author of a book titled Bump in the Road. And, oh by the way, Pat also holds a degree from the Wharton Business School in Finance. 

It was almost 2 years ago that Pat and I did on show on “soaring,” which means flying an airplane (solo) with no engine or in other words… gliding. Pat is an avid soarer and much, much more. And, since that show, we have become dear friends.


Pat is an enggaing and “very curious” conversationalist, which makes for very fun talks. 


Today we will play a bit of catch-up on life, the universe, and everything as well as a deeper dive into the Intuition, or what I am calling the Art of Knowing without Knowing Why.

Doubt everything. No beliefs are true. Adopt what works for you now.” Useful, Not True, Derek Sivers

Thought Review

This blog is a “thought review” on a not yet published book by Derek Sivers titled, Useful, Not True. That’s because I have on listened to the first 25 minutes of a 100-minute book. His six chapter titles will give you an idea of where he is heading in this handbook for thought: (1) Almost nothing people say is true, (2) Your thoughts aren’t true, (3) Ideas can be useful, not true, (4) Find better perspectives, and (5) Adopt what works for you now.
