    Episode #404: Cutting Corporate Red Tape and Bulls#!t with Martin Lindstrom

    Episode #404: Cutting Corporate Red Tape and Bulls#!t with Martin Lindstrom

    Martin Lindstrom is the founder and chairman of Lindstrom Company, a global branding & culture transformation firm, operating across five continents and more than 30 countries.
    TIME Magazine has named Lindstrom one of the "World's 100 Most Influential People," and for five years running, Thinkers50, has selected Lindstrom to be among the world's top 50 business thinkers. Among the companies he advises are Burger King, Lowes, Boar's Head, Beverly Hills Hotels, Pepsi, Nestle and Google.
    Lindstrom is the author of seven books including several New York Times bestsellers that have been translated into 60 languages. The Wall-Street Journal praised his book Brand Sense as "one of the five best marketing books ever published," and his book Small Data as "revolutionary," and TIME called his book Buyology "a breakthrough in branding."
    Lindstrom's much anticipated new book, The Ministry Of Common Sense is all about eliminating bureaucratic red tape, bad excuses, and corporate b******t - just the kind of thing I love to talk about here on Future Squared.

    Episode #402: Reinvent the Way You Work with Jonas Altman

    Episode #402: Reinvent the Way You Work with Jonas Altman

    Jonas Altman is a workologist who guides companies to leave politics and posturing behind in favor of transparent and trusting cultures. He is the founder of award-winning design practice Social Fabric, Altman coaches leaders to do their very best work and travels the world tirelessly learning and speaking about the changing nature of work. His chronicles have appeared in The Guardian, Quartz, Fast Company, The Telegraph, and The Sunday Times.
    As two people who have walked similar paths and though extensively about the nature of work, this was a really fun conversation. We unpacked why so many people are actively disengaged at work, the role of purpose in our lives, the tendency to derive too much identity from our work at the expense of other pursuits, the role of autonomy and short feedback loops when it comes to motivation, the remote work reset button, universal basic income, biological predispositions, and a whole bunch more, so strap yourself in for my conversation with Jonas Altman.

    Rebroadcast: Robert Greene on the Laws of Human Nature

    Rebroadcast: Robert Greene on the Laws of Human Nature

    This man needs no introduction but I’m going to give him one anyway.
    Robert Greene is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, The 33 Strategies of War, The 50th Law and Mastery.
    His highly anticipated sixth book, The Laws of Human Nature, explores people's drives and motivations, even when they are unconscious of them themselves. Knowing why people do what they do is the most important tool we can possess, without which our other talents can only take us so far.
     
    Having read hundreds of business books myself, perhaps the books that have had the most profound positive impact on how I show up each day and how I conduct myself are books on psychology, behavioural economics, neuroscience and biological evolution. Books that ultimately helped me to understand myself and understand others. As such, I was really excited to read the Laws of Nature and speak with Greene about what is such a fundamental topic.
     
    In addition to having a strong following within the business world and a deep following in Washington, DC, Greene's books are hailed by everyone from war historians to the biggest musicians in the industry (including Jay-Z and 50 Cent).
     
    Expect to learn a ton from this conversation, but in particular, three key take-aways:
    1) How having an estimated 80 jobs before becoming an author shaped Greene’s world view and made him a better and more creative writer
    2) Why it is our moments of frustration where we often seek out life-changing answers
    3) How Greene seeks the path of what is ‘most right’ by looking at questions from multiple angles and contemplating many alternatives
     
    This just scratches the surface of the many enlightening things we discussed - just peek at the topics discussed in the show notes to get a feel for everything discussed - so with that, it gives me much pleasure to present you with one of the most pre-eminent authors of our time, the one and only, Robert Greene.
     
    Topics Discussed:
    -      How having an estimated 80 jobs before becoming an author shaped Greene’s world view and made him a better and more creative writer
    -      Greene’s take on ‘strong opinions, loosely held’
    -      Why books on human behaviour can make you a better entrepreneur than business books
    -      What The Laws of Human Nature offers that other books don’t
    -      Greene’s approach to writing books like the 48 Laws of Power and Mastery
    -      How Greene aims to avoid the narrative fallacy
    -      Why one should look for their ‘higher purpose’ in life
    -      The peril of false purposes
    -      Why it is our moments of frustration where we often seek out life-changing answers
    -      Imposter syndrome
    -      Avoiding the ‘counterfeit yes’ in sales
    -      Napoleon and controlled chaos
    -      How to become like Marcus Aurelius or Queen Elizabeth I, a leader who people want to follow
    -      Pericles and emotional regulation
    -      How Greene seeks the path of ‘most right’ by looking at questions from all angles
    -      Why activism is often just a fast-track to moral righteousness, sans actually being morally righteous
    -      Why people wear masks and why it’s their shadows that reveal their true selves
    -      How to infer what people’s true character, or shadow, is through body language
    -      How social media can bring out the worst in us and the rise of tech addiction
    -      Keeping toxic people out of your life or not succumbing to their games
    -      How to persuade by first confirming people’s self-opinion
    -      How to persuade by allaying someone’s insecurities
    -      The irrationality of human beings and why we should increase our reaction time
    -      Greene’s meditation practice and how it has impacted his life and work

    Episode #401: SOWH3 - Burn the Books: Jordan Peterson, Penguin and the Hitler Youth?

    Episode #401: SOWH3 - Burn the Books: Jordan Peterson, Penguin and the Hitler Youth?

    “Where books are burned, in the end people will burn”. 
    19th Century German author and literary critic, Heinrich Heine, spoke these words, and they were more than just a well sounding maxim. Totalitarian regimes thrive wherever ideas contrary to their own are suppressed. They thrive when books are burned. 
    Harvard literary professor Duncan White echoed these sentiments, penning a piece for the New York Times called The Authoritarian’s Worst Fear? A Book. He referenced authoritarian regimes around the world - those of China, Hungary, Brazil, the Philippines, North Korea - and their attempts to curb the internet and censor books. White critiqued the United States’ diminishing role in standing up against the erasure of intellectual freedom abroad. 
    He wrote that “wherever authoritarian regimes are growing in strength, literature that expresses any kind of political opposition is under a unique, renewed threat”.
    However, he need not look to distant shores for examples of this. North America is facing its own form of authoritarianism and attacks on freedom of expression.

    Izhar’s upbringing and his family’s troubles in Fiji Cultivating a mindset that helped him overcome sub-optimal grades to finish top of his class Burning out on 16 hour days at a law firm And how this led him to establish a company that today has an enterprise valuation of almost a billion dollars  We discussed this and a whole lot more, so strap yourself in for my conversation with Izhar Basha.
