    Turia Pitt’s Next Tuesday rule, hacks for dramatically improving self-talk, and how to be useful when someone is going through a rough time

    Turia Pitt’s Next Tuesday rule, hacks for dramatically improving self-talk, and how to be useful when someone is going through a rough time

    My guest today is Turia Pitt. Caught in a grassfire while competing in a 100 km ultramarathon in 2011, Turia suffered full thickness burns to 65 per cent of her body. But surviving is the least of her achievements. As one of Australia’s most admired and widely recognised people, Turia has gone on to become a bestselling author, a two-time Ironman and a humanitarian - raising well over a million dollars for not-for-profit Interplast. Through her online presence, books and online programs, Turia has inspired millions to live with more confidence, conquer their fears and chase down their wildest dreams.

    Turia’s latest project is her book Happy, where she explores the question: can you actually get happier? In Happy, Turia interviews high-profile athletes, comedians, scientists and world experts to explore how everything from money to our relationships has an impact on how happy we can be.

    We cover:
    Turia’s strategy for reading an enormous amount of books
    The books that have had the biggest impact on Turia’s life
    Turia’s "Next Tuesday" rule
    How Turia decides whether to say “Yes" or “No" to opportunities
    How Turia approaches saying “No” to requests
    Turia’s gratitude practice
    Turia’s morning routine
    How Turia thinks about anticipation to improve happiness
    How to make your phone boring
    How Turia manages her social media usage and output
    Turia’s hacks for improving her self-talk
    The three questions Turia asks herself to manage her nerves before big speeches
    How to be useful when someone you know is going through a hard time
    Turia’s strategy for setting and working towards goals
