Going and Coming

In this episode we’re going to enter the flow of how change happens in our life, specifically about how we need to regularly “clean house” to make room for new things. It can be tough because we get pretty attached to our “stuff”. We are all “hoarders” in one way or another, and most of the time don’t even realize how we do it and what the consequences of that lifestyle are. Reality tv time!

 And, as always, our conversation will be roguish, as we weave in our core values and we’ll share a mystic MacNugget. Let’s unleash the flow…

Hey Stu…

“Namaste, all of you beautifully, exotic cocktails…

Please comment on Facebook, email us, we want to more of these stories!


Major thing to understand is that you are in control of this process. LETTING.

Realize that natural laws are at work. When you create space, it will fill. One way or another. Fill the vacuum.

This should be a constant flow in your life. Different degrees at different times of life.

Not just toxic things that need to go, but lesser things as well.

Examples:    Your body: assimilation…circulation…elimination

Nature: Photosynthesis. The seasons.


  • Job(Ikigai concept)
  • Affiliations: Political, groups or hobbies.
  • Relationship(s)
  • Theology/Dogma/Traditions(!)
  • Limited thinking. Fear. Victimization.
  • Habits. Good and bad. Break the norm.
  • Biases/comforts.
  • Stuff. Simplicity.
  • The need for certainty.
  • The sense of urgency. Rest in the liminal space.


  • New relationships
  • Breathing room
  • New truths/greater understanding and power
  • New habits
  • Mindfulness/meditation
  • A softer heart
  • Greater sense of peace
  • Poise
  • A life that is just a little bit better…

Mystic MacNugget:  “Don’t let your comfort zone be the end zone.” -Mac

About the Podcast

The WizeGuys
Going rogue in pursuit of wisdom.
A cosmic exhale—it’s what we all yearn for. Mac and Stu are a couple of WizeGuys with decades of experience in navigating the nuances of life as entrepreneurs, family men, coaches, mentors, facilitators, thought leaders, masters of relationship, and contemplative mystics. Join with them as they apply an eclectic approach to life, centered around the concept of cultivating wisdom. They will help you build discernment through the art of asking the “whys”, and by showing that going rogue is the only way to break free of the biases that keep us from doing it just a little bit better.

They realize that what got us here is not going to get us there. Take a journey with them where you’ll experience ah-ha moments stimulated by their conversation that’s filled with wit, candor, vulnerability, and always seasoned with right amount of the mysterious. We’re all exotic cocktails, and learning to celebrate our wonderful uniqueness as we build oneness is the perfect recipe for crafting a better world for everyone.

Mac is The Maverick and Stu is The Maestro. Blending those perspectives in an almost magical way to get after it and call it out will show you how together is better. They’ll use the events of the day to practically apply a roguish blend of modern perspective and timeless wisdom sagacity. Seeking clarity over certainty changes everything. You want some of that? Then relax, enjoy, and engage. Oh...and make sure that you strap in…
