    Héctor García: Finding Your Reason for Living

    Héctor García: Finding Your Reason for Living

    Happy New Year! I’m Guy Kawasaki, and this is Remarkable People. We're on a mission to make you remarkable. Helping me in this episode is the remarkable Hector Garcia.
    Hector moved from Spain to Tokyo in 2004 and began writing a blog called A Geek in Japan. This led to co-authoring a book called, Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life.
    The word ikigai roughly means “reason for living” or the reason you get up in the morning. Hector’s book removed the scales from my eyes and helped me understand what makes me tick–particularly, my love of podcasting.
    The book has sold 2 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 59 languages. It is the most translated book ever originally written in Spanish.
    I would rank Ikigai as one of the top five books that have influenced my life.
    Hector’s episode is the first one of the year because understanding the concept of iikigai is a great way to start 2023.
    If you don’t have an ikigai, I hope you find one. If you already have one, this episode will help you understand it better.

    Kerri Walsh Jennings: What's It Take to Be a GOAT

    Kerri Walsh Jennings: What's It Take to Be a GOAT

    I’m Guy Kawasaki, and this is Remarkable People. We're on a mission to make you remarkable.
    Helping me in this episode is the remarkable Kerri Walsh-Jennings. She is one of the GOATs–greatest of all time–in women’s volleyball. This description opens up a existential question: “greatest” implies the one and only, but in my humble opinion, there can be multiple greatests…but I digress.
    Kerri is a five-time Olympian and three-time gold medalist. She holds the record for tournament victories, both domestically and internationally.
    Together with her partner Misty May-Treanor, who is another GOAT, she has won 21 consecutive Olympic matches, and they only lost one set during their 11-year run.
    Kerri graduated from Stanford with a degree in American studies. She was the second player in NCAA history to be named First-Team All-American in all four seasons.
    In the next hour we are going to cover:
    The right reasons to participate in youth sports
    How to channel doubt into action (yes, Kerri Walsh Jennings has doubts, I was surprised too)
    What she thinks of athletes like Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka taking time off
    The sexualization, or lack of sexualization, of women’s sports
    And, of course, what it takes to be a GOAT.

    Paul is the coauthor of The Roadside MBA, and the author of Everything I Ever Needed to Know about Economics I Learned from Online Dating.
    His latest book is, An Economist Goes to the Game: How to Throw Away $580 Million and Other Surprising Insights from the Economics of Sports.
    In the next hour, you’re going to learn how to look at these topics through the lens of “personal economics”
    The online dating market
    The gig economy vs a “permanent” position
    Professional sports
    The unpredictable effects of increasing the minimum wage

Remarkable Arv ,

Living Life to the Fullest

I rarely listen to podcast but having started listening to Remarkable People in late 2022 with Ep #1, has been an amazing experience. I have added new routines, goals to my daily life, personally and professionally. Guy’s questions are thought provoking. By no means I am remarkable but I will be some day in listening to these podcasts and learning to life a better life. Thank you Guy in speaking with amazing people.

A gem in the sea of podcasts

Guy is almost always complimented by his guests for his great questions and his thorough background research spawns fantastic questions and as i listen he asks follow ups to clarify and dig deeper.

His style and charisma is unique and i find these to more genuine and conversational yet still concise.

I find so much value in these talks and find them to truly be making me more remarkable.

Thank you guy and team!

:::::teewee::::: ,

wonderful!

Guy always makes me feel like I’m hanging out with him and his guest having coffee and a riveting chat. Because of the range of Guy’s guests and topics I’m hooked! I especially loved Kerri Walsh’s insight about female athletes.
