DOGS ARE SMARTER THAN PEOPLE THE PODCAST OF AWESOME

Dogs are Smarter than People

This podcast is all about trying to live a happy, better life and being happier, better people and how you can use those skills in writing and vice versa. But we’re not perfect, just like our podcast. We’re cool with that.

Why A Podcast About Writing and Life and Dogs?

Life doesn’t go the way we want it to a lot of the time. Your kid gets a speeding ticket. You can lose your job, your mom, your friend. Life is improvisation and yeah – the whole seize the day thing is a cliché because it’s important.

 

 

So to enjoy life you’ve got to be a good improviser. What does it take to be a good improviser?

 

  1. Be aware. Be awake. Don’t succumb to numbness. Be brave! Say yes to things!
  2. Be aware of other people. Not just focused on yourself.
  3. Say yes to things. Live your biggest damn life and take chances.
