People care about the environment. They want to act but feel frustrated and discouraged.

Yet I’ve found that respecting and protecting the environment brings joy, meaning, and purpose.

Leaders help create meaning and purpose. Creating it for acting on the environment has become my passion—not raising awareness or talking, but acting.

This podcast is starting that leadership, changing the system’s goals and beliefs from growth at any cost to enjoying what we have.

You’ll hear influencers act on their environmental values, struggle, and then say: I wish I had done this earlier. Thank you for getting me to start!

  • Judith Glaser, CEO, Benchmark Communications

009: Tanner Gers, Conversation 2

October 4, 2017

Do you want to improve your life? ... and enjoy doing it? I usually don't laugh out loud at people talking about the environment, but Tanner made me. Listen to Tanner's second conversation to hear how a master approaches a modest challenge, makes it fun, makes it bigger (if it's fun, why wouldn't you), involves others, and keeps building. He shares what makes him a top athlete, husband, and all-around fun guy. He's no more or less human than anyone. We talk about challenges, successes, Navy SEALS, and what makes a person and life great. It all starts from plastic bags, the awareness that comes from paying attention to how you affect others, and acting with integrity.

Where to improve your life

If you want to improve your life, you have to act and experiment. Part of the deal is sometimes you mess up. You can't escape messing up. No one can. So practicing in your relationships, your work, or with family can lead to greater repercussions than you can handle. Acting on the environment is a safe place to experiment. You can try changing your diet, using public transportation, bringing bags with you to the store, buying less stuff, and so on without much risk. You still develop integrity, discipline, and so on, which you can then apply everywhere in life. And you still clean the air, land, and water we share.

Why I don’t drink coffee

September 12, 2017

I rarely drink coffee—about a cup per decade, maybe. Partly I don’t drink it because I see how dependent people get on it, and how much they spend. Partly because the caffeine affects me so much. I drink it to stay awake only when I consider the reasons I was up late and had to get up early worthy. Otherwise I don’t drink it since I don’t want to reward myself for doing unworthy things with the happiness the caffeine produces. But those are superficial reasons. When I was a kid, the grown-ups said that only grown-ups could drink coffee, not kids. A rule that only grown-ups could drink coffee meant that drinking it meant you were a grown-up. It didn’t mean not drinking coffee meant you were still a kid, but at least you had a chance. So by not drinking coffee, I have a chance at retaining that youthful characteristic. I know a rule existing doesn’t make reality follow it, but I still think about it when declining coffee. I think of it as fun. Plus I learn to avoid the need to stay up late.
