    49 - Shorting Your Own Stock

    49 - Shorting Your Own Stock

    To short a stock is to sell it before you own it. You sell it today and agree to deliver in the future because you believe the cost will go down and you will be able to buy it at a cheaper price.
    When you put off tasks to the future, you are doing the same thing with your time.
    Every action you take has a cost, and when you leave for tomorrow what you could do today, you communicate a lot about the way you value your time.
    Topics Discussed:
    - Shorting your own stock
    - Opportunity cost
    - If you get better every day, the value of your time in the future goes up
    - Valuing future time less when you should actually value it more
    - If you can do it now, do it

    Babies Don't Baby Step

    Babies Don't Baby Step

    We call it baby steps when you take small guarded steps forward. But babies take the exact opposite approach. They flail, take big risks, and learn as they go.
    When babies start crawling they don’t cautiously ease their way into it. They get up, fall down and crash into things. They’ll walk off the top of the stairs if you don’t have it blocked.
    Only once they take risks do they develop the skill needed to be more precious and safe. But they would never gain that skill if they didn’t take risks initially.
    The same is true for learning in adulthood. We want it to be safe, to ease our way in, but the best way to learn is to do what babies do and just go for it.
    In this episode:
    - Babies take risks, not guarded steps
    - When you start anything, don’t ease your way in
    - The power of taking big swings
    - We learn by taking “real” baby steps

    47 - Creating Content Without a Big Audience

    47 - Creating Content Without a Big Audience

    There has been a trend recently of popular content creators online talking about how there are too many blogs, too many podcasts, and the world doesn’t need more.
    Apart from the obvious irony, they miss the most important value creators get from creating content. Sure there is a chance to grow an audience and monetize it, but much more powerful is the learning, signaling, and social capital value that you get from consistently creating content.
    Discussed in this episode:
    - The amount of content on the internet is doubling each year
    - Three values to creating and sharing content online.
    - Creating to learn
    - Creating to signal
    - Creating to build social capital

    46 - Creativity Is the HTML of Hard Work

    46 - Creativity Is the HTML of Hard Work

    In this episode, Praxis Education Director, TK Coleman guest hosts to talk about creativity and HTML.
    Most people think of creativity and associate it with inspiration, living in cool neighborhoods, and eccentricity. But in reality, creativity is a lot more about hard work than it is about cool esthetics.
    Just like HTML is nothing without plain text, the cool and unique aspects we associate with creativity are nothing without hard work and the simple ability to get things done.
    Topics Covered:
    - The best creators are the ones who know how to get stuff
    - Why some “Creative” people don’t create results
    - Creating can be done anywhere at any time
    - Creativity is the HTML of handwork
    - Don’t ask “How can I become more creative?”

    45 - Your Reputation Is Your Resume

    45 - Your Reputation Is Your Resume

    No one has ever been hired for their resume. At best a good resume will get someone curious to find out more about you, but it is the more about you—the background—that will get you hired. 
     
    Instead of a resume, what truly matters is your reputation. Your connections, friends, coworkers, and customers who know the type of work you do will open up new opportunities. 
     
     
    In This Episode: 
    - No one has ever been hired for their resume 
    - Why so many jobs go to people who know people at the company
    - Doing your current job exceptionally well is the best way to find new opportunities
    - Talking about what you love about your job
    - Build your reputation, don’t worry about your resume
