    Bonus Episode: Originality, Writing and Career Fulfilment with Brandon Sanderson

    Bonus Episode: Originality, Writing and Career Fulfilment with Brandon Sanderson

    Brandon Sanderson is my favourite author of all time. He writes incredible fantasy books, including Mistborn and The Stormlight Archive, and wrote the final 3 books of The Wheel of Time. Brandon's output is legendary - he writes books almost faster than we can read them, and he teaches creative writing at Brigham Young University. I recorded this episode with Brandon as a live stream during the 2020 lockdown, and because it was one of my favourites I wanted to share it with you again as a bonus episode.

    In the conversation, we discuss how he kept going when his writing wasn’t being read, the question of originality and how we can make the stuff we need to do (work) more fun. Enjoy!

    How To Find Meaning In A Digital World - Kharma Medic

    A lot of the time we can find ourselves on this hamster wheel of trying to optimise every waking hour of our days, hyper-focused on time and paranoid about how the decisions we make today will influence our future selves. But ultimately the hamster wheel just keeps on spinning when we don’t take a moment to slow down, reflect and enjoy the moment.

    Nasir Kharma is a medical student King’s College London, best known for his YouTube Channel, Kharma Medic, where he talks about studying, productivity and what it’s like being a med student. In the conversation we chat about how he started his channel and began to play the YouTube game, how his time in therapy has shifted his thinking around time management and how we’ve been thinking about what it means to live a meaningful life recently.
