Welcome to episode 300 of the show~. We have come far, and learned a lot along the way. This one includes discussion about the value of declarative energy, as well as how we are not starting from scratch whenever we do something. Enjoy, and onward we go.
We start from one place and end up at another. In this episode, we close out 2020 with a last episode of the year, bringing us to 52 episodes for the 52-week year~. Here, I discuss the guests we’ve had on in 2020, concepts they brought up, and some takeaways for all of you.
Welcome to episode 290 of The Armen Show Podcast. This one is about the value of branching out in daily times, and different ways you can branch out in your own life.
Adding a little variation to your day can be all you need to keep it interesting. This can be in the form of music, colors used in note-taking, paths taken to travel, locations visited, foods tried, people reached out to, and more.
Welcome to episode 288, which might be my first one on this show that is both solo and still in video form. On this one, as the show continues its growth, I describe thoughts in relation to a quote I read that said “Continuation is power”. When I saw that, I recognized the value in it, and that I wanted to talk a bit about it.
The people who continue along on a project path or a goal they started before represent their internal willpower when they put out that next thing. It says something to all others out there, and represents that they are still “in the market”.
After covering this topic, I covered the topic of continued flow, and how stoppage has such an impact on where you can go in the short term. It’s like a weight that can become heavier by the day, each day that you skip working out, or whatever the activity may be.
Hello and welcome to episode 287 of the show. On this one, I look to recap a few past episodes, what I learned from them, and what you might be able to take away. The episodes are #274 with Dr. Geoffrey West, #268 with Dr. Maryam Baqir, and #267 with James Nestor.
Dr. West gave us a sense of connection with humanity through biological and physics laws, while Dr. Baqir took us through the first Covid wave and her direct experience, and Mr. Nestor reminded us that there is a better way to breathe. I hope you enjoy the episode, and I look to do more recaps like this one.
In episode 15, which was 268 episodes ago, I mentioned my two past Ebooks, along with a couple of quotes from the one called “Quote Analysis: Volume 1”, but I did not go into detail about each quote. In this audio, I cover all 11 quotes, and my current take on what they mean.
Listing of the quotes:
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.Benjamin Franklin
If I can picture that, I’ll bring a picture back.O’Shea Jackson
Real education must ultimately be limited to [people] who insist on knowing, the rest is mere sheep-herding.Ezra Pound
If everything seems under control, you’re just not going fast enough.Mario Andretti
The [person] who never makes a mistake always takes orders from one who does.Daisy Bates
He who hesitates is a damned fool.Mae West
When ability exceeds ambition, or ambition exceeds ability, the likelihood of success is limited.Ralph Half
It’s not about timing; it’s about preparation.Unknown
First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.Mahatma Gandhi
To be understood, first seek to understand.Stephen Covey
The mind, ever the willing servant, will respond to boldness, for boldness, in effect, is a command to deliver.Norman Vincent Peale
We take note of these short communications from these individuals, and what we can do with them today.
We switch it up on The Armen Show every so often. On this episode #282, I will be answering 28.2 questions about myself and the show, as far as my perspective and responses as though I am being interviewed. I find it to be fairly informative.

28.2. This 0.2 questions is in the show~
It is almost like a self-interview. We mix it up here on the show, and sometimes we reach from sources outside of the show. Glad to have you as a listener.
Welcome to episode 281 of the show, where I cover a few messages and topics in a monologue type of form. The main theme on this one is that there is value outside yourself to absorb from, and you can tag on to the stories of others to enhance the story of your own.
- looking at the stories and path of others
- getting value from things outside yourself, and letting the experiences of others bring you messages and understanding
- the different types of markets that exist
- participating in the markets of your choosing
- bringing the people around you up, and what that can do for you
- how to bring the people around you up
- how acting in line with your true nature matches you in the long-term, but can have slight drawbacks in the short-term
Glad to have you listening, and we continue to the future.
Welcome to another edition of The Armen Show. On #276, it is a stream of consciousness, as I take you through thoughts.
- how feeling is to be let through
- why feeling is a representation of truth that thoughts are not able to be, in the same way
- how a post about leaked e-mails made me think about truth
- what leaked e-mails can showcase beyond the straightforward wheeling and dealing
- how truth is found in edge cases and battles
- why it is important to keep pushing your mind
- novelty in its relation to mind growth
Glad to have you all along on this journey.
What does a little risk taken or effort made today do for you a week from now? How about 10 years from now? We look at life in an extended framework if we want to see it more clearly. Episode 275 is about this concept, how something can build only once it is started, and when the valuable representation of what you did will show up.
- how a spark has to be in place for the item to light up years later
- why compound gains start off disturbingly slow and pick up speed
- looking at past musical artists or content creators, and how their early efforts on the internet set the stage for thousands of people who followed them
Hope you enjoyed this one~.
With the world in a state of rapid adaptation due to health concerns, I discuss some of the elements connected to the scenario in episode 253.
There are the straightforward health concerns, along with financial impacts, social impacts, relationship-based impacts, and impacts between countries. Though it has been a bit disturbing to see the current moment arising from a couple of months ago, based on much I had read from scientists I follow, it is worth knowing how it will go.
- the current viral scenario, and what it means for the globe
- how rapidly it is changing, and what adaptation to the moment really means
- some of the global impacts of a virus that has no current cure, and transfers readily, silently, and with a lagging period of symptoms
- the social impacts of such a virus, and how it can affect creation of new relationships
- the direction of our global society over the next couple months
- the power of resilience and character in these key months, separating people by power-of-will
- how the good and bad of preparation before such an event are both amplified once the event arises
- and more
Glad to have you check out this episode. The virus has thrown off a lot of the routine of the world, but we as people are resilient and respond to whatever comes our way. To more.
Welcome to episode 250 of the show~. This returns to the style of me speaking by myself, doing some impressions, telling some story, and updating on recent content.
There is great material to cover in March, and we look towards continued growth and improvement.
- the interconnection between guests and episodes
- using Zoom for recordings, and how it has been
- the Kobe memorial, and what he represents as related to what I do
- the fun of getting books in the mail
- made up stories
- impressions of various podcast types
Hello my fellow podcast listeners, associates, colleagues, individuals, audience members, and personnel. We here at The Armen Show Podcast (known for its consistency, variety, depth, and goal-oriented nature) are glad to walk right into the new year of 2020.
The show starts on a noticeably different footing as compared with its presence at the same time last year, and this is a springboard into the forward progression at hand.
- where we are at in the great year of 2020
- how TikTok is the place where a lot of energy is currently going
- some of the plans or ideas for 2020
- speaking or some form of speech-providing
- ways I can improve my end of the show throughout the year
- emotional awareness and better blending with guests
- telling more stories, and including more of my own experiences, along with mentions of past guests
- how I will be including more elements without thinking if X or Y or Z is the right thing to add in
- how I will be looking at other podcasters/creators to see what I can add in or improve upon
- what the podcast represents and is meant to express
Keep up with the show and you are keeping up with the movement. Let’s roll onward.
Long live the year, the decade, and the dynamics that have progressed over time. This episode is me closing out the decade with some descriptions of my content creation over time, what I have noticed of the internet as it shifted over the years, and what changes I have seen in the planet in the past decade.
I like to do recaps and compilations to get a broader sense of what has happened. We can only see so much from a smaller view, but I don’t like to stick with that view. The bigger picture is the world I like to inhabit, and at times, I share that with you.
- progression of my social media content over the years
- my blog Timeless Information and its various contents
- YouTube videos with strangers in public
- SnapChat themes across different messages
- Podcast audios and shared insights
- TikTok clips of insights, or shared with strangers
- the development of the internet over the past 10 years
- what people have used and shifted toward
- some global dynamics I have noticed
- what cultures have more recently gone online in big numbers
- what I have liked to do
Glad to have you all on the show in these times. We progress to the next decade in smooth fashion, and there is a world of opportunity for those who seek it out. To more great things~
2019 has been a fabulous year for the podcast. There will be a couple episodes after this one, but this episode serves to describe and summarize the episodes that were covered this year, along with how they link to one another progressing through them.
This year took the show into a different bracket, as far as guests, video, and messages being provided. There was more of authors, researchers, notable individuals, speakers, and stories that resonate. I was glad it went in this direction, and the show is in a good space to start out 2020.
There are no show notes in this description, because the episode itself is a review of the past episodes.
The podcast went to many different sources this year, including Spotify, iTunes, and Google Play, and was then added to YouTube with the selection of episodes that have the guest on video, either from in-person, or on Skype.
May there continue to be more wonderful guests, things learned, and connection. Subscribe, let people know, like on iTunes or other services, leave a review, or do whatever you would like to help the show become more known, reach a larger audience, and lead to greater guest opportunities.
We bring the stream of consciousness on episode 226. This one covered a variety of topics I had not planned for before the episode started. I handled a few things during the episode, which was nice to add variety, and I mentioned them during.
Part of this episode was about how I’m prepping differently for when I interview Dr. Christakis, in connection with understanding people more holistically. People are not one-faceted individuals, but have layers of experiences and connections.
We don’t do things in a vacuum, and the collective of humanity traveling through time has no unknowns that have been added during the process of entropy reduction. Enjoy the episode~
- why looking through all the interviews of one of my upcoming guests is a great way for my interview to go better
- how each person is not just a single element, but a combination of their experiences and connections and happenings
- what planning the next week or month can do for personal productivity, management of highs and lows, and fulfillment
- how things can be light now and heavy later depending on when you handle them
- why you can’t think away a feeling that you are in, and how you roll in a feeling until you get out of that headspace
- how figuring something out clears an issue, while leaving it untouched lets it show up as soon as possible
We all process things a bit differently, and I like to look at what I missed and what I can work on. I like to keep my ego from building, by sharing and talking and thinking through times. I like to come out a more understanding person who is more connected.
This episode is one where I present a few quick messages about things I got to understanding. There might be future content to go deeper into the topics I mentioned here, or I might go into other ones. This is my way of solidifying what I figured out, sharing with someone it could help, and bringing some energy forward.
Here are some show notes:
- why you should do for yourself what you seek out for others to fulfill
- how light can become heavier when you don’t handle your end
- when you should over-communicate and what kind of person it might help
- where you can take things when you include the other person
- how I process a relationship or experience to come out more whole on the other side of it
- what it means to give yourself the love that you seek outside
- how you can look at growth experiences in a smooth light
There may be more across these topics or alternate ones. These are the more analytical end, but part of the message here is about handling that part so the warmth and connection can persist.
We all try our best along the way.
You have a set of strengths and built up investments that is your source of highest energy. It is worth working from that, instead of starting items from scratch. One is way more motivating than the other. On episode 215 of the show, I discuss this concept.
As well, I want to include material on Nipsey Hussle and his passing, along with how it relates to leverage.
- why you should leverage the strengths that you have
- how looking at what you have is inspiring as compared with the alternative viewpoint
- what you can do to use leverage for your workouts
- when to apply points of leverage to your being
- how social connections connect to this concept, with some efforts of yours being the priorities
- why certain places give you more leverage than others, and how to get a sense of where they are
- how to see where you have already built up leverage and investment, in order to expand on it
- why Nipsey Hussle knew this concept and applied it to his efforts
- how he impacted his community, and the message to take away
- what it means to be valuable to others around you
Glad to have you listening on episode 215 of the show. The show you know about. On to the next.
The stream of consciousness is back in place for episode 210, which reminds us of the 210 freeway in Los Angeles.
- why the steps along the way are not so relevant to me, but the stepping beyond past elements is
- why you should support the things that you have made or done, regardless of how significant or insignificant they have been
- how limbic resonance is the main feature pulling you and others to social networks and related applications
- what adversity leads to as far as content creation in our society, and how adversity is the base for most of what we see as breakout material
- how context is placed much more heavily than content in the eyes of the collective, with context always serving as the base in viewer’s minds while they examine your content
Links to material mentioned in the episode:
The Armen Show comes forward with variety on this one where it returns to me bringing you the updates and stream of consciousness.
On this one, I bring up:
- recent postings that have been on the show
- some of the statistics associated with the show, and how they have improved over time
- other podcasts and the comparisons with them
- example include Conan’s new podcast, the Impaulsive one, and Srini’s Unmistakeable Creative podcast
- I look at what kinds of things others are doing that I do differently
- quote posts I have done on Instagram and their reach to a new demographic that likes the presentation of them
- how the oldest individuals have a broad perspective, and an upcoming guest may be of that age group
- various insights I like to share
Glad to have you listening through to this point. The show continues onward with flow.
