Details

What is Effective Philosophy? Juan and I simplify hard to grasp concepts into pragmatic takeaways that can be applied to every day life (fitness, goal setting, work, parenting, travel, hobbies, finances, etc.,). 2 x episodes a week. We go live every Wednesday with our meanderings, plus an extra as a more casual conversation with a guest or between ourselves.

Monthly Goals | April 2024
<p>It&apos;s time for our monthly check in where we review our goals from last month and see what&apos;s coming up for the next.<br/><br/>Do you set yourself monthly goals and if so, how many do you set? Juan and I on the first week of every month go over our progress from the previous month and where we are heading for the next. Emphasis as always is on the shortcomings; what we didn&apos;t achieve in the previous monthly goals and how we will fix that for the month that comes. We hope you get some value from this series, showcasing our own methodology. What do you do differently and why?<br/><br/>Timeline:<br/>(0:00) - Intro<br/>(0:51) - Juan&apos;s March 2024 Recap<br/>(6:39) - Kyrin&apos;s March 2024 Recap<br/>(13:40) - Support Overview<br/>(15:54) - Juan&apos;s April 2024 Goals<br/>(27:53) - Kyrin&apos;s April 2024 Goals<br/>(30:37) - Fitness<br/>(35:53) - V4V: Good vibes incoming<br/><br/><br/>Connect with Mere Mortals:<br/>Website: <a href='https://www.meremortalspodcast.com/'>https://www.meremortalspodcast.com/</a><br/>Discord: <a href='https://discord.gg/jjfq9eGReU'>https://discord.gg/jjfq9eGReU</a><br/>Twitter/X: <a href='https://twitter.com/meremortalspod'>https://twitter.com/meremortalspod</a><br/>Instagram: <a href='https://www.instagram.com/meremortalspodcast/'>https://www.instagram.com/meremortalspodcast/</a><br/>TikTok: <a href='https://www.tiktok.com/@meremortalspodcast'>https://www.tiktok.com/@meremortalspodcast</a><br/><br/>Value 4 Value Support:<br/>Boostagram: <a href='https://www.meremortalspodcast.com/support'>https://www.meremortalspodcast.com/support</a><br/>Paypal: <a href='https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/meremortalspodcast'>https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/meremortalspodcast</a></p><a rel="payment" href="https://paypal.me/meremortalspodcast">Support the show</a>
