Bonus Video: Curate Your Own News: Why & How

As I mentioned above, Podcast Addict helps you curate your own news. What's that mean? Check out the chapter in my Worth Sharing book here or watch the video overview below to learn how you can -- and why you should -- take charge of your own media diet.

Bonus Video 2: Pocket -- Captures & Reads Web Pages Aloud, Offline w/ Text to Speech!

Another powerful tool in my news curation tool belt is Pocket. This video from my YouTube archives shows how to set up and use the incredibly powerful Pocket app to 1) capture web pages to read and study offline on your tablet or smart phone, and 2) use Pocket when you are offline to read the article out loud to you, via your device's headphones or speakers.

From the Archives: "Why You Should Trust Your Judgment (Your 'Inner Wisdom Filter')"

Your "Inner Wisdom Filter" is real & it's trustworthy!

“Skill in any performance, whether it be in sports, in playing the piano, in conversation, or in selling merchandise, consists not in painfully and consciously thinking out each action as it is performed, but in relaxing, and letting the job do itself through you. Creative performance is spontaneous and ‘natural’ as opposed to self-conscious and studied.”  -- Maxwell Maltz in Psycho-Cybernetics

“By banishing doubt and trusting your intuitive feelings, you clear a space for the power of intention to flow through.” -- Wayne Dyer in The Power of Intention

The message shared by these great teachers… indeed, by many other great philosophers… is that to achieve anything great you must trust that voice which lies deep within you and is trying to be heard...

What's congress up to? Countable helps you track & nag your senators & representatives!

Tell me: What are they about to vote on? What are the pros & cons? How can I contact them... right now?

If you're trying to be politically active and push your elected reps to action, timing is everything! At any given moment, there are so many debates and bills and initiatives before Congress that it's completely overwhelming to track them all. The best you can do is find out what's immediately pending so you can call them and make sure your voice is heard. But this is almost impossible without some sort of automated tracking. 

That's where Countable comes in. While it can do all sorts of great stuff, I use this app/website to help me with three main tasks: 
1. Find out what is immediately pending and ready for a vote in the Senate or House.
2. Research the item that is up for a vote by reading a summary of it, as well as pro and con perspectives, so I can make up my own mind. 
3. "Click through" a dialing link and immediately phone my particular Senators & members of the House of Representatives and urge them to vote the way I want them to vote!
