A podcast designed to challenge the way you think about the ever-changing landscape of the information age. I aim to talk with entrepreneurs, visionaries, and anyone else who wants to talk about how they have found joy in going the opposite way of rush hour in their lives.
SISU - The Forgotten Art Of Standing Up
SISU is a Finnish term - and it is the art of just standing up, acting like you've been there before, and is the most intimidating way to be in the world.
A Good Judge of Character - Consistency Is Key
You never know who is watching you that could be the bearer of opportunity. Today's podcast is all about situational awareness in the face of adversity. Here's a story from my youth that shaped the way I think about the world.
Comfort is a slow death - go after pain
Never go after the easy answer. It's a lie. The easy answer is never painful...it's called easy for a reason.
Always go after a more complicated future...more complexity will challenge you and test you at every turn.
Go after pain.
Mt. Rainier sucks - Life lessons from an awful descent
In June 2019, I climbed Mt. Rainier. The ascent was pretty awesome. The descent, however, was horrendous. It's taken me a year to learn something from it...never allow yourself to reach the summit in your own life.
Action and Inaction = Life and Death
Charles Dickens once wrote - "This is a world of action, and not for moping and droning in."
The reason he wrote this was because he understood one fundamental truth - that action is living and inaction is death. Furthermore, he understood that simply being thoughtful about your decisions was action in and of itself - which staves off death. And death is found when others make decisions for you without you thinking critically about the consequences of those decisions.
Lessons from beyond the grave - Anthony Bourdain
It's been two years since Anthony Bourdain's suicide. Today I talk about some of the lessons that he inspired me to think about...specifically about how to make every day count, whether travelling, eating, reading, or listening.
The willingness to dive into this world with the intention of LIVING each moment is something we all need to remember to do.
