EP05: Tommy

thresh·old

/ˈTHreSHˌ(h)ōld/

noun

the magnitude or intensity that must be exceeded for a certain reaction, phenomenon, result, or condition to occur or be manifested.

Welcome to episode five of the Stretch Podcast with your host, Alison Kuhlow.  Stretch is a podcast that uncovers the power that sharing personal stories of change can have.  These stories expose us to new ways of thinking, and can help us change our outlook allowing us to take steps forward, and to stretch towards how we want to live.

 In this episode Alison’s friend Tommy shares his story and philosophy on life.  The way that Tommy looks at decisions is a little different than what Alison is used to.  As someone who likes to make pros/cons lists and consider all the options, it’s a little mind boggling for Alison to listen as Tommy describes his process.

 Listen as Tommy talks about:

  • His upbringing and family
  • The motives behind his move from Georgia to Iowa
  • Not looking towards something specific, but towards changing something specific
  • The experiments he’s made in life
  • The changes he made after his daughter Nina was born with medical problems
  • Focusing his energy on things that he has control over
  • How he measures success purely by feelings
  • His life mantra

 

Every day is a stepping stone, and Tommy leads his life with this understanding.  Can you?
