Ground Up 043 - Reprogram Your Mind w/ Dan Harris

Dan Harris is an anchor for ABC’s Nightline & the weekend addition of Good Morning America. If you told Dan ten years ago that he’d be writing books about meditation he’d have said you’re fucking crazy (he likes to curse).
In his new book Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics he works with meditation teacher Jeff Warren to break down the common myths about the practice & how to integrate it into your life (not having enough time is usually a bad excuse).
I talk with Dan about his path to becoming an anchor, the moments that pushed his career forward & how to find happiness (or at least 10% more of it).

so.. i'm looking for a quote .. i am 100% certain Dan Harris said it - and i saw it through a D'Avella video
yet i cannot find it for the life of me
it's when he talks about the practical stress of worrying over a missed flight 😩

Matt, re your friend who traveled to Africa and now can't eat dairy. The same thing happened to me and it took years for me to figure out. I hope maybe this can help your friend! I believe the anti-malarial pills killed off the American bacteria in my gut, then I ate local food but several African countries do not pasteurize their dairy products, so I inadvertantly introduced a different kind of bacteria to colonize my gut. I wasn't able to eat dairy without getting sick or rashes until years later when I got sick with bronchitis, got prescribed antibiotics, and then consumed a bunch of probiotics and dairy products to overwhelm my system until I repopulated my gut with American bacteria as the winner.

Matt, sadly to say, I've been watching all of your vids from video number 1 haha. Seriously, love it bro. I've been learning a lot about myself as a creator, father of twin 6-month old girls and husband. You. Da. Man. We will cross paths soon.

Every podcast/interview I see of Dan I become a bigger fan. I didn't know who he was until the doc, looked into him more and thoroughly enjoy listening to him. He seems like a genuinely great guy. Your podcast is great, keep up the good work.

Matt, I love the content you are creating and truly appreciate all the effort you put into making this! Thank you so much. I had an idea just wanted to throw out there. What if you put time stamps for through out the podcast for topics that come up. This way we could navigate back to really good ideas in each epidosde. I could imagine this would be lots of work but just wanted to throw it out there. Your podcast stands apart from all other podcasts btw. Keep it up. Peace

This is great! When I heard “I have a mantra of three Ps..” I got so excited! I have something similar: Patience, Positivity, and Persistence. This got me through college and some other tough experience.

I can relate to this interview so much. Most specifically the Quarter Life Crises that Dan speaks about. Would love to see more content from you discussing the quarter life crises and how real it is for many of us. Great GREAT content Matt!

Heyo, loved the interview. Dan is amazing and I liked how you have some different twists on the "typical" questions. On an other note: What settings do you use for colorgrading? It looks great!

Thanks! I get my LUTS from Color Grading Central (a quick Google search will find it for you). From there I do some additional tweaking.
