I’m Jamie Smart – welcome to the podcast. And I’m delighted to share this recording with you because I was being interviewed by bestselling author, speaker and coach, Mamoon Yusaf for his “How Rich Coaches Think” summit.
There was one problem: my contact warned me that the military personnel wouldn’t enjoy my talk. He explained these were experienced senior officers (colonels, generals etc) who already felt they had all the EQ they needed. He said they’d likely be checked out and checking their watches during my session.
It’s a while since I’ve written a Friday Shot of Clarity but I’ve got fresh inspiration so here we are! Let’s start with a story…
Last summer, I flew to Rome to deliver a keynote speech to 80 military and civilian personnel at the NATO Defense College.
I’m still in Portugal working on the 2nd edition of CLARITY. I talk a lot in the book about the inside-out understanding, so one of the things I’ve decided to do in the new edition is define “inside” and “outside” as clearly as I can.
I’m still in Portugal, writing the 2nd edition of CLARITY: Clear Mind, better Performance, Bigger Results, and at the moment, I’m working on Chapter 18 – Penicillin for the Mind. It starts with this line:
“There’s nothing in this world that you can’t turn into heroin…”

Welcome to the podcast. I’m delighted to present this episode, “Living a Beautiful Life” with Jan and Chip Chipman. The theme for the ClarityLive conference it was recorded at was “How to make 2022 your most beautiful year yet” and it was really lovely. We had people joining us from all around the world, and there was a great sense of community, with lots of profound realisations.
And one of the highlights of the weekend was my session with my dear friends, mentors, colleagues and collaborators, Jan and Chip Chipman. Jan, Chip and I met nearly 13 years ago and have been friends ever since. We’ve run retreats together in the Canary Islands and mainland Spain. They spent years being mentored by Sydney Banks, and one of the things you’re going to love about this conversation is the feeling they bring. Chip also tells me favourite Syd Banks story in this session, so I hope you enjoy that too.
