    Compared to Whom?

    Compared to Whom?

    We as humans are plagued by a never-ending conflict within ourselves, a conflict between our egos and our insecurities, and nothing triggers this more than comparing oneself to others. Unfortunately, these inner conflicts can have a less than desirable affect on our experiences with the outside world if we let them get to our heads.
    In this episode, Alex and Karandeep dive into the ever-present vice of peer comparison. The duo discusses their own struggles in dealing with comparisons, how they've learned (and are still learning) to manage them, and tips on redirecting the energy wasted on pointless comparisons towards improving oneself in whatever endeavor they are pursuing. TL;DR: Don't compare yourself to others. Compare yourself to who you were before.

    The F Word

    The F Word

    Not F***. This episode is about the other F word:
    Failure.
    Alex and Karandeep rant about their week of what felt like a frenzy of disappointment, but also provide insights on how to deal with failure. You can't escape failure in pursuing your business and career endeavors; we all have to confront it eventually. However, you can learn from it.
    A MilestoneWhen we set out to make this podcast, we made a goal of recording at least 5 episodes. Ironically, despite this being an episode about failure, we're extremely proud to have achieved this goal. It's only been a month, but we've had a lot of fun working on this podcast. We hope you've enjoyed the content we've been dishing out so far, and look forward to cooking up even more. Thank you FCKers, we couldn't have done it without you.

    Relationships: For The Love Or Money?

    Relationships: For The Love Or Money?

    Yeah, those kind of relationships. Quite a detour, huh? Hear us out for a sec.
    The thing is, relationships are at the very center of your winner's circle. Alex and Karandeep agree on a lot of things, but in this episode, they have a (civil!) debate about their differing views on this topic. Can you balance your commitment to someone with your commitment to your professional success? Or, will we all have to confront the choice of picking one or the other?

    The Winner's Circle

    The Winner's Circle

    "You're the sum of your five closest friends"
    You're probably familiar with that saying. You can work on yourself as much as you want, but you should also take a look at your circle: the people around you. The people you surround yourself with—friends, family, partners, and coworkers etc—are more important than you might think. When things get tough—and they will get tough—these people could be the support system you need to keep you going, or weights to pull you down. In this episode, Alex and Karandeep dive into the importance of building your winner's circle.
