Josh Janssen: [00:00:00] It's the daily talks over episode 930. She's fumbling over my words there. How are you?
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:09] Happy Tuesday, mate. Happy. Uh, first day of December, first day of summer. Welcome here. To the day. I don't know what I'm saying now.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:19] Bublé is playing in our place
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:22] really?
Josh Janssen: [00:00:22] Oh, that's nice. You know, alive, but
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:25] yeah. Um, I was driving the kids to school.
I mean, Bodhi and on the way back, I'm listening to some fag rap. You know, just a bit of gangster shit. And then all of a sudden, just this beautiful Christmas June comes on. Amy's on the Spotify to work, putting on Christmas tunes for the office.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:47] Beautiful thug, thug wrap. Did you, um, say Justin Bieber is upset that he's being classed as pop music rather than R and B.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:57] Interesting. Is it he's is he actually up in arms?
Josh Janssen: [00:01:00] Yeah. Yeah. Justin Bieber
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:04] B versus pop. Nah, I think it's, I mean, I don't know the genres enough, but if he wants to be R and B, I'm happy with that. But I think of foreign beef, like the creeps in the, of the world, like R Kelly, like that sort of. I mean, he's the he's modern, he's pop he's popular.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:22] So this is from Toronto San Justin Bieber slams Grammy's for calling his music, pop Justin Bieber, once members of the recording Academy to stop calling him a pop star. The London Ontario born singer songwriter picked up a Grammy noms for best pop vocal album, best pop solo performance, best pop group performance and best country and group performance.
But talk to Instagram to vent. Is dissatisfaction. So what is it? I just want to make sure what is the, yeah, I set out to make an RNB album changes was and is an RNB album is not being acknowledged as an RNB album. Yeah. Which is very strange to me. You're right.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:03] Fair enough. There's a bunch of stuff about the Grammys, uh, going on, like.
Yeah, the weekend is absolutely furious that he didn't win a Grammy. I mean, ultimate baby spits the dummy, but he deserves the Grammy. Let's be honest, he's written some huge tunes. Um, but then there's people coming out saying it's a, it's a, you know, you got to know somebody like be it's one of these award shows that ends up being sort of a bit rigged because it's
Josh Janssen: [00:02:31] every single award show accused of this.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:35] well, if you think about it, I mean, there was recently the Australian podcast awards. Just think about it. That is not run by
Josh Janssen: [00:02:44] Apple. That is not run by Spotify.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:47] That is run by a couple of dogs that probably decided let's do a podcast awards and good on it. Like they've done a great job. It'd be like you and I creating an award ceremony.
And so my point being, it's not about the Australia, it's the podcast is about any of these things. A lot of them have been started at some point,
Josh Janssen: [00:03:04] but even broader, the broader picture, like Apple, Spotify, they're not in a place to create an awards night either. Or if you want awards night, it sounds real pulse and awards night.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:16] the thing is that that point that would put on something pretty amazing. If
Josh Janssen: [00:03:21] yeah, it might, it might be, might be nice, but. I just don't know what the actual point of awards like or what the point is.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:32] Well, you end up seeing that the people that are. It's like the Arias, right? It's like a certain, it becomes this sort of scene where a bunch of similar people are always together.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:50] K-12 squeegee. I
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:53] just got this cute little cute little bloke in short shorts around
Josh Janssen: [00:03:57] lawns
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:58] and my,
Josh Janssen: [00:03:59] my windows. Yes, my dad. He's fucking in good Nick.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:02] Um, um, no movies it's I was thinking about it. And these very, like not saying any bit, like, it's you going to be a part of it? So you're going to play the game in a certain way to be a part of different award shows.
Right? So you gotta be, there's always the fringe of creators that. Aren't networking in the right ways to be a part of these things. And so you see how, there's just your point a problem with all awards shows to some degree.
Josh Janssen: [00:04:30] Well, do you remember the commercial radio awards, these things like he's people get upset and they think that it's unfair and all this, and then you see who is picking awards and it becomes so political and everyone needs to be represented.
What about the idea where it's like, The way that podcasts are successful is based on whether you can build an audience and you can, you know, communicate to a crowd. I don't, I just don't
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:01] understand that, but there is, there is, it's like the prestige of television. It's like awards shows. I mean, I went to a, um, I went to a fourth year old birthday over the weekend and, um, I mean, you're pretty lucky to win.
Pastor pass the parcel. You got 10 kids, you're sending it around the mum. The mum made sure that everybody got to open the pre open at least once, which was very nice. She's like keeping check. And then by the end of it says, has everyone had a chance to open? Yep. Great. And then we'll go into the winner and, but you didn't want to put too much emphasis on the winner because the kids.
Don't want to be rattled. So everybody want a piece of candy when they opened one layer
Josh Janssen: [00:05:46] theory. I think that kid's birthday parties are the equivalent of awards nights because on the weekend, on the weekend, we're in packing them. And there was, I'm not even joking. It was super windy and we were outside, but a family had created a medial wall.
With stands, where the kids could come and get fired? No, what was on the wall? It was like bricks and stuff like that. And it said like happy birthday. Oh,
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:14] that's cute. I mean, it's social media is at four. I mean, it might be for the, yeah, that's the difference. So you've got the mum, my mum still has physical photo albums and this, I mean, Amy still has some from her childhood.
We don't have any, we've just got a few on the wall and then Instagram and our phones and Google photos. And so, yeah, I mean, it was either was old for the gram and then that is the thing. It is all for optics awards shows, but. Because it doesn't mean that just because the weekend didn't win a Grammy doesn't mean he's, he's no good, but it all helps.
It depends on the, like the music industry. If you've been awarded something, it might leapfrog you to the next or get you some attention. So it does, it does work or it does serve a purpose, but it's not for everybody. And I've struggled to play the game of these things, but it's also
Josh Janssen: [00:07:10] Richardson who does award shows in power.
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:14] Um, who does empower it's the egos who are deciding, but also the, um, the people that win, it might feel empowered that they've been picked. So it is serving that older vibe of, I need to be picked for the thing I'm doing to know that I'm doing well, which even though I say that. And I am of the understanding that there is a version that people do want to be picked.
It also, I know the feeling of it. It feels good if I can feel is real good. You know, like my son one pass the parcel
Josh Janssen: [00:07:45] every week over the weekend did well.
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:49] Not everyone fucking want to talk
Josh Janssen: [00:07:50] holder and 80. And he walked away with chalk holder. He had the chalk holder, they have the chalk, who's the winner.
Uh, yeah. Anyway, if you like awards nights, do it. Uh, yes, it's not really. It's not really my thing. Uh, okay. So, uh, Jess, uh, Jess Lucas, the whip has given me a gift. She gave this on, I think it was Thursday, put it in the boot of my car. Very annoying things going in the burden of the car, because you sort of could Bray straightaway says, Oh, what's this.
I'm like, I don't actually know, but let's bring it upstairs. So, okay. What Jess has said is that this is a gift. For the big media company team it's relating to the show potentially. Okay. And she said you can open it up on the show.
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:37] All right. This is an unboxing, right. And it's not, I mean, it's, it's the Christmas month.
So let's let's vibe, the, um, prison opening. Okay. Here we go. So first to December, is it wrapped nicely? At least it's got Christmas wrapping.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:53] Yup. BMC, Tim. I'll read the card. Let's have a look. Yeah, that's the polite thing to do.
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:59] Hey, great. Just one thing on pass the parcel. The annoying thing for the parent having to wrap a present 15 times wrapping one's annoying.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:09] Oh shit like it's. So the envelope, the envelope scam, and the winner is, hang on a sec. Standby. I've done.
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:22] not your strong suit opening things.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:28] All right. Far LA LA LA LA LA LA. And it's a Lama and a Christmas tree. Oh my God. A hundred bucks. Cassius fell out. Okay. She's written in cursive, which is risky when you want to read out on it. Uh, dear TJ, JJ. M L G B. She's just gone with initials across the board. Thanks for, thanks for something everyone year.
Awesome. Okay. Thanks for an awesome year. I hope you all have a very happy and something. I think relaxing Christmas, she is to many more.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:27] back you up. I found Jess's diary the other day that she'd lost and it was at the office and I opened it and I thought I'd been taken back to the 1940s. It was that cursive. And well-written though, like, so. Clean,
Josh Janssen: [00:10:41] this is what a teacher, you know, teachers would give notes to another teacher and you'd be sent to send the note.
And it was like written in code just by like joint writing. So I think it says here's to many more hams Anaheim in 2021. We're going to Anaheim. I don't think it says add, add the him. And Ady N E N H U a E S ad
Okay. Just like just adventures. Oh my God. It's so bad. And then what is she signed off? It's is this like, it looks like, um, is it meant to be Jess?
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:28] I think
Josh Janssen: [00:11:29] it's from Jena, J E N Jenna. Anyway. All right. Can you just write in all capitals in the future? Okay. Here we go. I mean, I'm the guy that
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:39] rotates between capitals and lowercase
Josh Janssen: [00:11:41] and throw out a word.
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:46] Yeah. Yeah. Okay.
You're definitely a guy who's ripped the present when opening it.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:59] Okay.
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:01] Turn around shout. What is that?
Josh Janssen: [00:12:03] Okay. You're going to have to read it. So it says adventures,
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:07] adventure, challenge, friends edition.
Josh Janssen: [00:12:11] Okay, here we go. The adventure challenge or friends edition. Is it,
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:17] is it, um,
Josh Janssen: [00:12:17] your friend's photo album? Your friendships are a Whiting adventure with this book, as your guide friends of all ages and group sizes alike can experience fun and excitement in a new and unique.
Why the catch, you don't know what that adventure will be until you scratch off the super secret adventure foil like a lottery ticket, but instead of losing $5, you actually get to do something fun. Whether you're making a mess, inventing a new game or getting flirtatious with a new friend,
your squad will connect with each other in all new ways. Spin the bottle, coming to BMCC. The 21.
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:05] No, I liked that. I liked that maybe you could do like a, um, a Friday, Friday ARVO, adventurous, scratch and scratch off. I'm excited about this. And so you scratch it and there's something that we have to do as a table or as the person doing it.
Josh Janssen: [00:13:23] So that's really, that's really lovely. What a great idea here. It's going to be great. Like we should, I think we could definitely do something. She's just said it was because of Tommy's idea from GBS B day. What was it?
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:38] I can't remember
Josh Janssen: [00:13:39] Jess don't connect dots for us. We don't know it. We can't remember what we say.
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:43] If Jess more info. I appreciate it. I just liked the idea itself. And George Martin has said, thanks, Jess Lucas. That's lovely. Um, very nice
Josh Janssen: [00:13:55] on the, that sort of, um, doing something on a Friday night thing. Got me thinking the other day. I
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:02] want to try to come to the Christmas party
Josh Janssen: [00:14:05] to the Christmas, but no. So I think that I've because I'm fairly new to drinking busy, seeing new things.
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:14] these new things. Yeah. 20, 21. You're actually, I've been drinking for quite some time now that's the, that's what you're going to replace. I'm new to drinking.
Josh Janssen: [00:14:21] So I've discovered this thing. I want to know if this happens to you. I dunno what it's called, but it's having dreams that feel like they actually have, after you drink having a dream that is so realistic that you wake up and you think that it's happened.
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:42] We have a dream like a .
Josh Janssen: [00:14:45] So I'll give you a, give you an idea. Hanging out with mates. The other night I woke up in the morning and I was like, I might got, like, I got a little bit tipsy. I was like, Oh my God. I like said this thing out. Like, uh, there was so like out of character for me. And I was like, Oh my God, I can't believe I said it.
And it got like quite the reaction. I was like, this is, I can't like, I felt really bad. I was like sitting on the couch up the next day. I was like, should I like, say something? Like, I feel like it wasn't bad enough that like, I just don't want people to think that that's what I actually think. Like I re I was like, Oh my God, I can't believe you said it.
And like someone told me off about it. And I was like, yeah, of course. Anyway, so I bring it up to my mate. I was like, Hey, I can't write, I don't know if this actually happened, but I think that I said this, and then everyone did this. And they were like, nah, nah, it didn't happen. But I was so glad. That I brought it up because I spent a whole day just fretting being like, this is really drink.
NA NAC is Bree wasn't even in the whole thing. And I was almost like, I felt so bad about it, that I was just like, I'm not going to talk about it. And now I still don't. I S I still don't know whether. They just being nice to me and just pretending that it didn't happen. I don't want to know it didn't happen,
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:09] but what it did, the things that the slur, it was just like a single size.
Did you believe it? Do you honestly believe it now?
Josh Janssen: [00:16:16] This was the whole thing. This is what was so fucked up. It was like I said this thing and I was like, why? Didn't like. Why did I think that that was funny at all? It'd be something, yeah, here on this playground in 1995 type of deal. And I was just, I was like, Oh my God, like, of course I got told off, like I said, this thing, like, I shouldn't say anything.
And so it was just a bizarre feeling. Well, I was actually quite freaked out after I spoke to them and I said, Hey, Did I, um, I, it wasn't even, did I say this? I was just like, Hey, just want to say, sorry, if you remember this thing, I'm like, that didn't happen.
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:54] Well, I mean, December spiky drink,
Josh Janssen: [00:16:58] but then it happened with a few weeks earlier.
I thought that I saw an Instastory from someone doing this whole thing. And I remember sitting there watching it and then I was speaking to about it. And we're like, no, that didn't happen either. So I'm a bit fucking freaked out at the moment.
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:16] So I've just said alcohol disrupts your sleep cycle, and it can interfere with your REM sleep REM sleep is the sleep stage where you will often have vivid dreams or nightmares, which means when alcohol affects your rim, it can bring on bad dreams.
I mean, maybe that's where you're getting these a bad dreams. Cause he like, or compromising dreads, bad dreams. Don't have to be zombies like bodies' dreams that could be. You've said the wrong thing or you're getting canceled. I mean, that's a bad dream. So since
Josh Janssen: [00:17:46] been canceled, I don't want to be canceled.
Uh, so science focused.com sounds legit. Uh, they say many people use alcohol to help them sleep. Do they? Alright? Can we say that's a terrible fact? Um, the, the headline, we love a headline. Why D why do I alcohol drinks give me vivid dreams. That's all you need to know. That's interesting.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:09] That's true. He would go can alcohol cause lucid dreams.
Did I say lucid dreams, not VV dreams and nightmares without calling this system, you're more likely to have intense, colorful dreams and nightmares as you sleep as your sleep patterns, ebb and flow. You may or may not remember them, but they can be lucid or give you a feeling that you are half awake and half asleep, or that's the lucid dream.
You've kind of feel like, yeah. Gauging your surroundings, but you're still asleep. I mean, that's weird. I mean, fuck you ha you are new to drinking.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:42] Well, I think that maybe part of it is being so close from drinking to going to sleep. Maybe that's part of it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:51] I mean, yeah, but there's also like, there's some fees too.
Like I've had dreams when I've been drinking that I've done something bad, done something like you're saying it's like you did something out of character for you. Like I've had heaps of dreams when I'm drinking. I just don't take much. And
Josh Janssen: [00:19:09] thought it was real. So the thing is I actually,
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:10] I
Josh Janssen: [00:19:11] was like the blend, because the thing is, it's sort of this vagueness where it's like, time's all fucked up, but then I couldn't connect the dots of how I got there.
So I was like, I knew what I said. But I don't know how I got into that position where I was saying it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:26] Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's fuck. It's dangerous. I mean, we've got our Christmas party for big media company this Friday. I mean, there could be, I mean, tally might bring the beer Boggs who knows. It sounds quite appropriate.
Um, can we some funny drains after that, or you might say something that night, how are you feeling about it?
Josh Janssen: [00:19:47] Well, no, I, I just think here as a business owner, I should probably like, sorry, set the standard and get my stomach pumped. No, no, I should be somewhere, uh, responsible and just ease into it. I mean, we're doing, can we say what we're doing?
I guess we can, we do have the, um, the cork and canvas. So you, um, so you paint something and then you drink at the same time. Yeah. Then, um, and then we're going to like a, a gym or going to a gym place, which should be good. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:25] Very excited. Um, today's a big day guys, 1st of December, first day of summer.
But. First day that I can have coffee again. I haven't had coffee in
Josh Janssen: [00:20:34] a month. Oh, that's exciting. Have you actually had it yet?
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:37] Not yet. Not yet. Not yet. Um, I will, after this with my dad, you know, do a celebrate every, you know, dad, you've done well, you've done the launch and the windows. Um, congratulations.
I'll get you. Oh, that's nice. So for his, his payment, I'll buy him a coffee and then I'll, uh, get my cell phone. But yeah, I'm looking forward to it. Looking forward to it. Want to die. That's my rule one a die.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:01] Not as much as I like fucking strong three quarter.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:05] Yeah, I'll get that. Cause I'll be too disappointed.
If it comes, you know, awake, wait latte, I'll be furious.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:12] We did talk about December one being the date, where we were going to talk about our intentions a little bit.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:18] Yep. Well, you've, I mean, your intentions are clear with the, with the, uh, bike that you got yesterday and the photos you're sending through of your sweaty face,
Josh Janssen: [00:21:30] uh, I'm fired up.
It is so good. Like the, um, The train is, or whatever pray was saying. Like, you do know that you're responding to them during lectures. Like, how are you, what did she say? I was just like, are you feeling like, yeah. As I'm riding up a Hill, so
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:50] Josh has got to spin bite with a TV on it, basically, if we're to
Josh Janssen: [00:21:53] sort of
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:55] reduce it to that, but it's a lot more, a lot more intense than that.
But you've already started your writing. Yes.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:04] Yeah. So I did a, um, a ride, uh, for about 26 minutes this morning, Utah uphill. That was sort of I'm feeling. I think that that's why I'm coughing. I feel like the, um, it sort of, they
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:15] have to choose God yet.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:18] She does tell, still stuck in Utah. I feel like it's a little bit like, I'm just fucking this whole exercise thing.
Just move shit around my God. I put my liker on. What a look, what a look, feel good or feel yucky and it feels good. It's you realize? Um, when I bought it, I, I didn't feel that body confident, but like wearing it. I've I've, I've got a whole new appreciation with, with, with how I looked then, because putting it on now, it's, it's sort of like I'm, you know, worried for the zipper as I'm like zipping it up, but it's um, yeah, it's got the, what is it like middle-aged man, the mammal, the middle-aged man in Lycra.
It's got that fine. It's like a, I look like someone that you would see, it's sort of a inner city cafe where they're sort of like limping along because they've got their, um, bike, uh, shoes in. Hmm, cool, cool, cool. Um, no, I'm enjoying it. I was looking at, they've got a leader board and so I'm like trying to see how I'm going on the leaderboard with this ride.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:27] Yeah, because she's online like a collector. I say the board of everybody, that's a part of it.
Josh Janssen: [00:23:33] Yeah. And so, uh, I was, uh, 200, uh, uh, out of a 400.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:42] Yeah, how good would it be if you were matched with like Lance Armstrong and you, um, and he came over like back, can you just fucking get us to number one? Can you just set a record for me and then, um, and then, yeah, that's it I'll say it to me.
Josh Janssen: [00:23:54] It is a, it is good fun. I'm trying to think the CT it's hard getting comfortable to the seat, but it cuts like a proper bike seat. So it really hurts you Gooch, but I think you're better off just leaning into it. And getting comfy rather than you can get replacement seats. But I think that it's not a good idea because you're essentially not riding the bus.
Like it's going to change the whole thing of it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:20] People who squat with a piece of foam on their neck, it's like, that was always shunned in the gyms that I trained in. And now I have a patch on my shoulders from holding a barbell on both sides that he's missing hair. Like it literally, you don't need laser hair removal, just fucking squat and use a heavy barbell.
And it's literally rubbed off. I'd get like scabs there. It's rubbed off my hair, but it's the same. It's like, you actually get used to it. And by the time you've done it a while for awhile, you don't feel it. So you won't be able to feel your anus pretty soon.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:52] It's about outside. Yeah, definitely. Yeah. I definitely feel it.
No, but it is good fun. Trying to do a couple of 'em. No 25 minute ones adapt. You just start. You can see how you can overdo it because it's it just sitting there. You just want to jump on and do another ride
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:09] just to get a stretch as well, dude. Otherwise you'd just be
Josh Janssen: [00:25:12] warm at warming up. Well, yeah, definitely feeling it in the, in the hips, but yeah, so something around the, um, the bike stuff, I think I'll dial in how many kilometers I should be doing a day.
I rode to, um, halfway to Mason's place. So you've got Google maps. And so I said, you know, from Collingwood to Bowen North to his address, Stacy. Here's your funny gear and just riding homeless, fucking hilly around around that way. Like I had to go definitely. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:42] Key junction, but the one
Josh Janssen: [00:25:45] thing I need to work out is that the, um, that you straight view.
And so it, it, it puts up a photo, every sort of, um, five seconds, three seconds or something, but they haven't completely doubted in because sometimes you're on the opposite side of the road. So you're seeing cars coming towards you. Um, not the whole time, but yeah, that was, that was the one thing. But I think something around the, the, the exercise stuff moving every day, all the trails, if anyone wants to, um, get into walking and they don't want to buy a bike, uh, in December, I am going to be using all trails a lot, which is like a, um, Uh, walking like a, um, it's like a hiking app, so you can hike in different places.
And so if anyone wants to follow me on there, I think if you searched Josh Janssen, I'll follow you back. And we can, we can, uh, you know, track our hikes together.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:36] Cute. Now. Um, I think what we did a couple of years ago, the word. Jason Fox choosing a word. I've kind of got a theme I'm playing with that sort of encapsulates yeah.
Health and doing stuff. It's not necessarily work focused, but it's like how to, how to be more optimal in yourself. Like if you you'll only be a better version of yourself in all other areas, if you've. You know, you've got that consistent regime in, um, that just makes, makes you feel good. Do you feel, did you feel good after 20 minutes on the bottle?
Josh Janssen: [00:27:11] Yeah, the thing is that, um, I mean, this is a classic thing, isn't it? Juring, you're like, this is painful, but then I think that the reframe for me is it's like, it's meant to be painful, especially at the start. It's like when you're getting used to it. Like that whole thing of like, no, you need to do X amount.
Of rides and then it becomes comfy. I think that part of it is that I would sit on a bike. I'm like, Oh, this is not comfy. It's not designed for me. And then I wouldn't do it. But if it's like, okay, it's not designed for anyone. It's not like, no, one's sort of like positioned to feel good on the bike from day one and then you can keep going.
But the other thing I think that helps is it's like, It's um, the perfect combo I feel for me, which is like investment financial investment. And then also like, it takes up a little bit more space and it is, it's a bit of noxious. And so I think that that obnoxious thing becomes this great noisy. Thing like this feels like this is my last, if I can't make this work, I'm fucked.
You know what I mean?
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:15] Now I appreciate it. And I agree
Josh Janssen: [00:28:19] because you're not going to, you're not saying, you know, what, what I need is a rower. It's not like I need like, There's at least three years of doing this every single day. Like that's what this deserves three years, every single day.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:33] One, two, three, six, five.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:35] Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:36] The three 65 challenges. That'll get you going and listen to leap year. And then, then it's not three 65. I don't think it is. Was this year? The leap year.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:45] Yeah, it was wasn't it?
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:46] Yeah. The Olympics, the Olympics were meant to be on.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:48] Oh yeah. What happened to that?
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:50] I got coronavirus, dude.
Josh Janssen: [00:28:52] They did
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:53] late year.
It was, yeah, Lakeview began and Wednesday, 1st of January ends on the 31st of December. So it, um, every fall, this year is a leap year. What a fucking year we'd should happen. We can delete it cause it is the leap year. Just finish it. Um,
Josh Janssen: [00:29:09] but sorry. Optimization you're saying.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:14] Yeah. Yeah. But I think with it, we said we weren't going to go into it too hard.
Um, but there is definitely the power in the premise of Dunstan. I wait until December, January one to start the thing that you want to do, um, I've already started, I'm feeling good about it. For some reason, I've got more motivation than I think I would, if I was doing this January one and I feel like I'm getting ahead of the curb, you know, like I've.
I've, uh, this is some hack. You like fact let's start a bit earlier. Let's get it going. Let's start implementing some of these things. So if there is something you want to do get started today, why not? December one rather than Jan one.
Josh Janssen: [00:29:54] Yeah, it does give you the time. But also the other thing too, is the.
The idea. So I think a lot of people would say, why would you start during Christmas? It's the hardest time, you know, December the holidays or something, but also like a brilliant time, which is like, if you can make it work, if you can, if you can do a version. So for me, it's not like I'm going to go to Christmas parties and not eat, but I'll just have like some turkeys and potato and veggies.
Like I don't need to eat. A whole bucket of M and M's, you know?
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:28] Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:30:29] Yeah. The thing is which I think that I've always given myself a pass, which is like it's Christmas. The main goal is to feel sick at the end of the day. Like let's lean into it. And so you don't need to do that.
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:44] But yeah, for me, it's even like, so at least exert, if you're going to do something destructive, it's when you end up throwing it all out, you've thrown out movement.
You've thrown out any sort of resistance to the naughtiness of Christmas food. And then you just like put, come January one, you know, you just fucking rolling into the new year. It's like,
Josh Janssen: [00:31:06] Oh God, fuck. Yeah, I'm tired
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:09] and lethargic. My blood sugars is fucked. It's like, it's
Josh Janssen: [00:31:13] all gone
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:14] anyway. I'm I'm now I'm excited.
I'm excited to see you are fucking get those legs. Just rock solid.
Josh Janssen: [00:31:22] Yeah. It is really those rider legs really feel it, you know?
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:28] No, but what are you doing? Are you, um,
Josh Janssen: [00:31:30] well, that's really, you start. Tell her. So the thing is okay. I know because I've got more, you don't want him now.
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:37] I'm going to go to coffee with my dad.
This is a real attic. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:31:40] It's definitely around this. There's definitely stuff around the social media stuff. I'm sure that you'll get, or like apps, like just fucking scroll time, which we're all going to implement.
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:50] Yeah, parroting some parenting things as well. Hm. Um, there's many things that I want to implement.
It's just, I think that word sort of can summarize for me the word where you pick a word for you a year. It kind of sets an intention. I've had one that was consistency and other year, and then whatever I pick, I want it to sort of encapsulate, you know, work family. Health, those kinds of three areas that ended up being your life.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:20] They never changed though. It's always the same.
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:22] It never does. It's just about how you've reframed them and Wharton and what drive or what, what reason you have for committing to something. And so, yeah, I'm I'm
Josh Janssen: [00:32:35] hi talk, show.com. Send us what you are doing. For the new year. If you do want to add, join me on all trails, let me know.
Or if you have a bike that has I fit, we can become friends on there as well. Uh, great. All right, well, uh, enjoy, uh, December one. We'll see tomorrow guys. Have a good one. Say
