“We can’t motivate people to do better by making them feel bad.” (7:59, Sam)

“The word problem means something’s wrong. And many of us use it habitually and we give people the impression something is wrong, even when there’s not.” (14:05, Sam)

“When we tell people what to stop doing, it never makes it better, It only imprints and perpetuates the dreaded behavior.” (18:00, Sam)

“If we are a coach instead of a critic, if we shape our behavior instead of shame it, if we learn from mistakes instead of lose face… we actually become closer to what we do want instead of what we don’t” (22:34, Sam)

“I believe that what we accept, we teach. And that if we are taking ourselves out of the story and if we are sacrificing ourselves in what we think is noble serving of others, we are modeling for the people around us that we do not count.” (24:48, Sam)

“If there was something meaningful and joyful and we put it off waiting for the perfect moment and that perfect moment never came… That is, and here’s the operative word, Jackie, a preventable regret.” (35:58, Sam)

“My mission is to help people feel better because we know that when people feel better, they want to live a life of service. They want to do meaningful work.” (40:35, Jackie)
