It's a daily Talk Show Episode 371 you're right there sounds like you're taking it like just boring a bit a bit of Joe, you very excited about the new Coffee?
Coffee Machine. Yeah, I've been drinking more coffee than I ever have. And it's thanks to this McMaster.
It was saying that you want us to get decaf?
Well, I was thinking like, definitely for the fact that I don't want to consume 1000 milligrams of caffeine per day. I'd like to because I like the flavor. And I had this conversation with a barista recently the very first What else do you talk about? Coffee the project goes I actually don't talk to them now because I was like the cafe closed and she said and I said are Can you do me a coffee she said are no but I can do like a cobra I've got these ones in a in a bottle like these new know that maybe? Yeah, these little twist up bottles with little things. It's just like a shot. I was like it look actually want it because it's warm. And I like the taste of it. I don't really want just a cold beverage drawn out the window. So did she see the microwave it? She actually put I walked off to get my computer and then I came back and she'd put it in put milk and put Yeah, anyway,
that was it was no kind of hand make sure it's not too hot for baby. It was
you do? Do you know that? I don't know. I just feel like it is the thing is always
Yeah, you test the milk on to your hand
to heart because you'll be able to tell boys didn't know that. Did you? Not Know? I did I knew that. I come in I just tested it. It was my honor because he didn't.
When I give me a little bottle at night that's a mix. I put half milk and then half hot water.
What so this barista which
cafe was it I was at the cafe in the gym where we get our catering But anyway, we're just talking about I was like I love the flavor. I don't know if I drink it for the buzz. Maybe I'm just an addict that thinks that it's not for the buzz but for the flavor. But I really like the flavors I want but there's no there's no drinking coffee without you know if you drink seven cups we're going to get fucked up.
If you could have if
chocolate hot chocolate was the same calories not
see this is the thing this is where I don't know if the diction is so rapid because I wouldn't i'm not i like the flavor of coffee more than I like hot chocolates
but you like market Do you like mockers more than don't? mock is not really coffee. What about the one that's near? Oh,
that's okay, but it's just Yeah, I've had it,
isn't it? What do you mean it? Do you think it's naughty? It's hundred
percent naughty. Okay, how many grams of sugar would be in that market? Mr. 97
How is he gonna look? Yeah,
he's he's got a good knowledge.
Or maybe the thing is you can answer it's one of my biggest pet
peeves Yeah. Is that people try and sort of you put chocolate in this category of all chocolates, sugar green band. It's not true. I actually wrote a actually missing it seven Can you go to note notes dot Josh Janssen com I think it must it's probably
what is that? What's notes doc Josh Janssen
it's not there anymore is that try go to Internet Archive and find it because I did a whole piece on chocolate and it was what I had a blog and I was sort of trying to do a bit thought leadership yet. Yeah. Typically on I got annoyed that I gave someone like 90% they said they love chocolate. Yeah, and I gave him this 90% chocolate like
Ah, I think Yeah, you've got a real emotional connection to chocolate it's it's your it's your Achilles heel. You i think it's it's the opposite. I think the thing is that if I do you have a Do you have a good relationship with chocolate?
I do this the thing is that when I'm healthy I'm having my 85% chocolate I'm happy but then you ridiculed me for breakfast last time I did it would have been the old office yeah
long time ago did the thing is that
so now I just
like I need to get back to my ways of looking at 85% as a nice little healthy snack. I think if you're a full blown chocolate head and you're eating the naughty chocolate head and you then downgrade or you just sidestep to only 85% chocolate I think it's a better choice Yeah, but I think then my point around the 85 is if you want to take another sidestep but then I don't know how enjoyable life is.
I mean you're the fucking guy that to the ice cream shop saying you could have a piece of fruit instead now I'm not never did you find out Did you find the notes Yeah, I've
have come on your blog and his concerns I have with getting a bike
yeah what would my
kid with a lot of trophies I said yeah finding a spot to lock it up.
has is falling off the black wind stationary at the traffic lights
when you click the click app yeah you have to learn to track state yeah
that's what I was
hitting a pothole
Yeah, it's a problem one of the things I'm turning right
I can't remember what it was
across the road
Yeah, that's right. If it's like
if we go back to New York I think we should do we did to attend and 15 I through Central Park you can hi attend bikes yeah and we just turned around and we pretending that we were doing you know Tour de France but to attend and I don't know
like I we did that bring it so brain I didn't do the tandem bike but we did the journey around Central Park and I fuck it like it was wearing road together. Yeah, it was amazing separate bikes. And there's some hills in that fucker. What I was I've actually got it's on my old Josh Janssen Instagram, but it's archive now but I'll put it up on the daily talk show it's me doing a video of me riding and then I hit a fucking pothole as I was doing it and so you see me and I can just quickly change that like I was went from very confident content creator I felt like I can cycling Maven, just tell worry about your elbow. And so what other things Am I worried about?
Uh, that was that was pretty much there was one about annoying other cyclists with your poor technique. Yeah,
because people would say that I would sort of flare out my legs too much. I haven't bought bought lycra I bought I spent $500 on Rafa ghee with the idea that I could use it twice. And 250 right. And I got a I managed to in those two rides. managed to both times I had an Instagram post, right. If you cut it down from content, he just he just likes it. Look at me, guys. Yeah,
I think if you you hope that you find something.
You think you you're sort of I want to get a peloton bike
a bit. Get him? Why don't
you Why don't you look, I guess is the thing, right? When you're trying to find a hobby. You're like, yeah, I'm committing I'm buying the gear. I'm going to do it. Don't do it. It's like, okay, that's probably not the one for you. Yeah. So then if you do that again a couple of times, and then you realize you're not fucking doing the thing that you're paying all this money for? Maybe it's you right? Maybe it's the commitment to the
thing. Maybe it's you. I've heard that before but Brainiac put me into a rage each other day because she said all the gym memberships come out? Yeah,
we know I'm on a fucking 12 month contract. Okay, fucking coming out until it's the end of the 12 months. I've
been smashing every second day. You're welcome. Okay, yeah.
It's all good. What were you saying? Sorry?
No, just saying Do you? Do you think it's at what point do you because you're quiet.
thoughtful about how you approach life. We think a lot about it and don't have this just being thoughtful.
What I thought made a compliment. Yeah, I realized that I
realized that wasn't a compliment. Don't take. Don't take this as a compliment. Okay, my compliments to have cut
through. Okay, so I really mean, okay, not a compliment, not
a compliment. But do you think that you look at the things that you spend the money on? And you get excited about? And you actually don't? Do? what's what's the connecting? What's the dock connector there for you? And this is no judgment. This is just understanding.
I mean, the the assets were a great purchase.
Now, but I think this is a six adjust shoes. Everybody needs shoes, not everybody needs by using and lycra and all of that stuff. Yeah.
So it's not using them. Yeah.
But you wear them every day, she just go to parachute. And so it's more of the things that you donate, I think the US showing up to do this. Yeah, the amount of the amount I've learned, truly loads internally on showing up consistently. I think it's translated into many parts of my life that helped me be better. Yeah, in different areas, like I will. It was funny the day you said this, Amy also said it to me. And it was like, I don't think our business would be where it is, if we didn't have the podcast. Yeah. And what the podcast means is, you know, 20 hours contact hours per week, plus, my time, your time, noses time through the deals time, everyone's time. If we didn't put in that effort, the other side wouldn't be thriving. And so it's this weird thing where it's like, if you're worried about making the commitment to do something that is going to be tough at time. You might not get the other reward from the other thing. Yeah,
I think it's just keeping it smaller. Like I think like I think the goal was just being smaller is good. I think that the hard thing is that there is heaps of shit wrapped up in gyms. And so you have to sort of overcome that. Like it's just talk about in some regards, mom wise, it's like, you know, keep it really easy for you know, to start with, what do you laugh?
There's, there's there's also a lot wrapped up in in your daily rituals on this blog as well. That was a joke. Yeah. So I did it was a parody, parody on reparation for this day. I've spent the last five years listening to audiobooks podcasts and reading websites to make sure I'm doing it right. This is definitely
I don't remember what I wrote. But go through it because it's comical by the end of it. It was it was making fun of the Tim Ferriss and all that sort of thing. Yeah. of like, this is the and the thing was I put the awkward thing about it was I posted about it. I think people were like it was a bit of a parody.
Actually, no, I remember you personally. I thought it was true. I thought it was legit.
Some of these rituals I've already implemented like email, showering and eating.
That's right. Oh, my God, because I but I also saw we missed the Mac slightly with the intensity of the sarcasm it needed to be higher. JACK post read. Yes. That's right.
JACK. True. Yeah. He would have known that it was bullshit. Like it was a joke, but he's buying
Yeah, it's like lying john running across Australia to propose from Perth to Melbourne if you don't make it very clear that like Hey guys, this rubbish stick. I didn't actually run. Well. Yeah, that you start getting signed up for fucking marathon. What you what you communicate
is what people will sort of just take on and so if people aren't putting a filter of sarcasm, because it's not sort of intense enough within the writing. Yeah,
It's pretty long. Now, I'll just grab some of the highlights. So wake up to an electronic free bedroom with no alarm. Drink a liter of cold lemon water
to Miranda cursing. She loves that. Yeah,
cool. Breakfast high protein high fat grains. hasn't had great
grains last night. Yeah, we have like a tuna we're doing this new thing brown rice tuna grains grains. Oh, let's grab Graham It was like a broker Laney
good buddy had greens to my two and a half year old.
It's easy when
any any client phone calls using headphones to avoid Armstrong
That's hilarious. It's funny now that when
is funny, I just remember this.
Oh, here we go tidy the apartment and do any washing.
know I've been getting I've been getting better. Mr. 97 I've noticed that maybe I need to hump to just sore throat it was the thumb. It's really thick with that middle price. Isn't it really thick and I can't The problem is I can't actually do any form of chore without having fun. laughs What do you mean yesterday? I picked up the plights I started watching him. I just missing ICF I was laughing is fine. Let me see what am I doing? What's going on
your brand the way you've sold yourself as the guy who? I mean who between the panelists. Oh. So on Saturday night at an engagement party. And my wife was talking to friends wife and I were talking about how she was talking about how at her house she was wanting to mount this picture. And she's like all look I'm going to can you do it? Not to the husband this my friend, Nana. But then little lighter. She'd said, Look, my sister's boyfriend's coming around. He's going mounted. And that's where he steps in says now back that I could do it. That's funny, but
it's the opposite though. Like,
who's coming over? I mean, that's the problem when it comes to moving. If we have people helping us move I just did the numbers on my extra pair of hands. I'm just gonna fuckin Yeah, but I was actually very I was kind of just say the last move. Very good. Whose move my move
as in your house. My house? Because the office
Ridiculous. Yes. I said I we did we actually did the whole thing. Well,
we back was cool. To be fair. Yeah. And we had a, it's very convenient. I'd sort of play a role of disagreeing with the logistics in a way. That's one way to do it this way. And then you say, No, I won't do it this way. I'm fine. You do it your way. But that means I can't be involved just to be clear. The doing it his way was stating let's do it tomorrow or let's do it during the week. The rest of the day. I was like No, we're getting it all done today. I wanted I wanted us to have desks. And you said that might you be able to get this fucking I've never seen someone sweats
office works been like sold out and just look at
the desk spot. Mr. 97 you would have to admit that we did it the right way. Yeah,
I wouldn't come back Yeah, I thought was the right way to I felt great about it.
Mason and I were saying are saying look Josh won't mention it but he's back to really bad I'll saying this to him. You went around but he's actually bad.
Did I mentioned I probably didn't mention it.
It's not for a long time. You were like, pretty stoic. So
I remember know that one of my old clients and neurosurgeon said that he was like the big thing that freaks people up is when it comes to moving or whatever. It's just like you can live a normal life and can be all fine but when it comes to lifting heavy shoot that just leave it to the seven foot in nihilists. Yeah, well, it is quite a
night you need to have just a fabulous dry in body to be a removal of Yeah, take my hat off to you. Always at a cafe on the weekend Bodhi night and yeah, well look when I have it when you've got a kid lucky we've got ritual so we get up in the morning. Saturday's go to the coffee. I mean, that was chobani is a part of it. Yeah. But we we like to get out and just cruise around the pram and you know, hang out go to the park. But I had this moment where I don't feel awkward. Usually when I'm at cafes, or when I'm interacting with groups of people. But leave that to me. I was added I was added on Facebook, which I don't have Facebook on my phone. I've got messenger Facebook Messenger. So I can't see notifications coming through of who's adding me or anything like that. So it was the day before I was on my computer. And I saw that I got a friend request from this woman.
Who's this? So click that on to it. And then I was like, Oh, that's the woman I see the cafe.
She worked at the cafe. No. Oh,
she's a casting director.
break? No, but I knew many
who got the doorbell that's interesting to want to go get it. Yeah, get ready to let us know something. We may all have something wonderful.
We booked in anything. Have we booked in anything that we don't know of?
Now he's really he really,
really jumped off.
Anyway. I'm excited to say what it is to be on it. So I am Yes, I
am hearing something.
Oh, yeah, we had the city in. Yeah,
come on. In. fact, we were we were started. I wouldn't put that in the
calendar is fucked up.
Guys for account.
Hey, buddy. Take it
out. Just chill dude. We're about to do a
story amid story. Yeah.
Not to self check calendar.
So yeah, this girl, this woman. I mean the cafe. I accepted her. I said accept any casting director. Years and years ago, I did a presenting workshop. At we're casting agency was it was in another room. But I met her she was lovely. Never casting me for another thing. That's all good.
But so did you know this? It was I knew her. I
knew she was a casting director. And I knew that I would see around the cafe. But we weren't friends on Facebook. But I got this ad on Facebook. And so I saw and I was like, Oh, that's a woman. So I accepted. But then I was like, I saw her at the cafe on the Saturday. I just had this moment where I'm like, do I say something about like how we're now friends on Facebook. You had this weird moment. I felt like I got rid of Facebook
even we'd have the exact same thing happened to me. Well, sort of the same thing sparked up conversation with someone and this is the worst thing about having a podcast is you're talking about the podcast nice. I think so I don't know who the fuck is listening anymore to the show. And but I I met someone at a cafe, we had a conversation. And now I'm like, we added each other on Instagram. Bry added her and all that. But then I saw her at calls. Like two weeks later,
she's you made your friends on Instagram. The thing is
that for whatever reason, whenever I don't know what comes over me, but I just like run away. Like I was like, all of a sudden I was like, oh, I've got to get the eggplant and I said no. And we didn't even end up getting the eggplant because wherever I ran to there was no implants. And so I was like, we got to go now. So did you actually speak to it? No, nothing? No, whatever the thing is, but it's got nothing to do with the person.
No, I just exactly right. I the only way to get out because I built this up in my head. It's probably it's probably just from you. I'm getting this.
You're blaming, blaming, blaming the
I don't know, maybe it's by osmosis. I'm hanging around us. Because I
think his brain was running as much as I was. She was on board
the interactions never as bad as what you think it is. Because I was in the cafe and I was with Bodie and but having a child is a great excuse because you like oh no, I'm gonna go get him on the show. But I was I had to walk out past her. And she was with some people that I knew that I would have had to say hello to or seem like an asshole. And so I I didn't mention the Facebook thing. But I looked in her eyes. She looked in mine. And we knew really that we were
now Facebook friends. It was something about smile. Yeah, it was just
like, as if she hadn't gone through my page as if she hadn't me Why do you add someone did
you go through her page? I went through the a couple of photos like a profile photo, but I didn't actually go through I should go. That's what I hate about like, there is something about social media and knowing there's that funny meme where it's like asking about their family holiday from four years ago, because you've already looked into everything and that's how I feel a little bit as I can. I can go into some pretty amazing rabbit holes. Deep and before you know that you've sent me screenshots even rabbit holes, eBay. Yeah, I appreciate. Yeah, if it. That's right. If you're listening to the show, take a screengrab. Yeah, and leave an Insta story. like doing your own story and say I'm listening to the show. This is great.
