journey inward

A Father’s Journey Inward

On Thursdays we like to interview every day dads. Today we talk to Dad Edge Alliance member, Ben. His mission was to become the best father he could be to his 6 year old son and a 4 year old daughter. He knew that they were picking up on what he did, not what he said, but sometimes he had a hard time being calm. After struggling with anxiety most of his life, he realized he needed to find a way to stay patient, especially when the kids were crying and things were stressful with work.

Ben had to go inward to face his flaws, to confront the truth about who he was and who he wanted to be. This unlocked the journey to living his life according to his values, to staying calm through the storm by accepting others as they are and letting go of the need to control.

The less pressure you exert, the more influence you have. Accept others and don’t control.

How to Start Taking Action

Idea Overwhelm: How to Start Taking Action


Today is the 3 year anniversary for Thursday Throwdown and the 4th year anniversary since the launch of The Dad Edge/Good Dad Project Podcast! Thanks to all our fans for making the show such a wild success.

Today’s show is about all you podcast listeners. We’re calling out the content zombies.

What is a content zombie? Those of us who binge on podcasts, listen to tons of audiobooks, download all the free guides, read all the articles, and watch all the videos on how to improve our lives, but never put the information we learn into practice. Instead of choosing one idea and sticking with it, we just keep sucking up more content. No matter how good it is, it’s useless to us because we are not implementing it.

In this episode, we talk about how to choose the best idea and start taking action so you can avoid stagnation and always be moving forward in life. Don’t be a content zombie!

Marriage Partnership

Marriage Partnership in Action

Last month for Thursday Throwdown, we covered the 4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage with Lance Salazar. Over 4 weeks, he broke it down into: The Individual, The Partnership, Becoming Friends, and Becoming Lovers. Today I’m going to talk about the marriage partnership in action.

I applied a quasi business-like approach to working with my wife to make sure we were on the same page when it came to responsibilities. This included a weekly meeting where we “frontloaded” and planned everything in advance, from who was taking the kids to school to what we were having for dinner. We even synchronized our schedule in a Google calendar. Is it worth doing all this tedious planning? How does it benefit our marriage?

Listen and find out!

becoming friends with your spouse

4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage Part 3—Becoming Friends

Remember when you and your spouse used to have fun together? You never ran out of things to talk about and you always had each other’s backs.

Then adulting got in the way—kids, jobs, stress. Sometimes it feels like you have nothing to talk about anymore and the distance between you grows.

Lance Salazar is back on for Part 3 of our 4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage Series. Today is devoted to becoming friends with your spouse again.

Lance gives us three key components to maintaining a close friendship with our spouses. They are:

  1. Deep Knowing
  2. Quality Time
  3. Being Present

Happy marriages are based on deep friendship and continuous fun. They’re about knowing your partner intimately—from hopes and dreams, down to the most embarrassing moments of childhood. This bond helps a couple to overcome adversity and show up as better parents. Listen to how to rekindle your friendship with your spouse in this short episode!

Be sure to tune in next Thursday for the fourth episode with Lance Salazar, Elements of a Legendary Marriage Part 4—Becoming Lovers!
