This week your hosts welcome New York Times Bestselling Author, and tall guy, Jon Acuff to talk about his new book Soundtracks.

As you are aware, many first responders struggle with an inner monologue that drives us down. "I'm not good enough. I'll never get promoted. I can't find a better job."

Researcher Mike Peasley PhD and Jon worked for years in testing a crazy, yet simple theory: What if we changed that soundtrack into something more positive, then acted on it? What if we were able to focus on the positive and have that repeat, rather than constantly hearing that negative nagging in the background?

Jon gives some solid, actionable advice to First Responders stuck in that cynical churn of day-in, day-out living. You'll learn:

  • If simply changing the music we listen to can have a positive change
  • What is a turndown and how it can impact a bad day in the field
  • How Jon can be so confident that changing your soundtrack will have a positive effect on your life, personally and professionally
  • Why Jon isn't wearing his Yanni - Live at the Acropolis t-shirt
