Something New I Learned This Week That Will Help You with Zoom
I’ve always wanted to start my Zoom calls with background music to set a mood to kick the meeting off. If it’s someone new, use relaxing music, if we’re jumping on to knock something out real fast than heavy rock. This week I learned how to do it easily. Here’s how:
Once you started the meeting:
Step 1: Goto the “Share Screen” button
Step 2: At the top of that popup screen select “Advanced”
Step 3: Select “Music or Computer Sound Only”
Boom! Now people in the meeting can hear the music playing from your computer. Try it out and set some mood for your meetings.
What I’m Reading
Atomic Focus by Patrick McKeown
Harness the True Power of Your Brain, Develop Resilience Against Stress, and Get Focused with Simple Breathing Exercises to Change Your Mental and Physical State.
I read Patrick’s first book back in 2015 called the The Oxygen Advantage and it had a profound impact on my work, health and fitness. In fact, we had Patrick on the podcast in episode #31 and it’s one of our most listened to episodes.
This is his second book and it’s packed with exercises you can immediately use to gain focus, reduce stress and improve your over all health. Highly recommend. Get it on Amazon here >>>
What I’m Watching
Elvis & Nixon
Elvis was hell bent on meeting the President to help America. On December 20, 1970 he jumped on a commercial red eye flight and showed up to the entrance of the White House the next morning. Getting the meeting, even for Elvis who was arguably the most popular human on earth at the time, wasn’t quite as easy as you would think.
Why am I recommending it?
Because there are great lessons about knowing your customer, friendship, determination no matter how crazy you sound, and good insights into how the things that are happening in our country right now are not new topics and it puts them into perspective. Oh yea…
The picture of Nixon and Elvis is said to be the most-requested photograph in the entire U.S. National Archives. Watch on Amazon Prime for free if you are a member or rent it >>>
