Billion Graves (00:00) When you hear the word “graveyard”, usually we think of either those we have lost or that terrifying movie that we know we shouldn’t have watched, but we did anyway and now we can’t fall asleep anymore. Whether it’s one or the other, we usually don’t consider graveyards to be an excellent place for service opportunities to learn more about our ancestors. That idea is what inspired the creation of BillionGraves, an online service that gives users the opportunity to take pictures of headstones and upload them online to help people locate where their family members were buried. Joining us is Cathy Wallace, Board of Directors for BillionGraves, here to discuss how visiting graveyards can be an incredible opportunity for service. What Mentally Strong People Don’t Do (13:07) Have you heard the phrase, “Mind over Matter” … you know, the belief that we can overcome anything simply with our own willpower? I wish getting through hard times was as easy as thinking “I can do this, I’m strong.” But mental strength is more than just thinking to yourself that everything is OK. In fact, there are some specific things we can do, and not do, to become more mentally strong. With us is Amy Morin, a licensed clinical social worker and author of the internationally bestselling book 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do to teach us how to stay strong in these situations. Staying Motivated (31:59) You’ve got a project to finish by the end of the day, three more meetings this week, and your unread emails have passed into the double digits. Can you feel your pulse speeding up and your blood pressure rising? Feeling overwhelmed at work is not only discouraging, but it can also keep us from getting everything done that we need to. Well here to help us is Josh Doody, a salary negotiation coach and expert in job interview strategy, with steps to manage our stress and feel good about the work we are doing.
