How I decided to Stand The F*ck Out [Special episode]
Welcome to the most irregular episode of the How do you know? podcast to date!
Change has been brewing beneath the surface and it’s the unmatched Louis Grenier and his workshop - Stand The F*ck Out (STFO) – that played a huge role in materializing that transformation.
What you see today on my website is the result of several months of work that runs deep. During STFO, I refined my business strategy, the assets I bring to the table, and defined the type of customers I want to work with. The workshop accelerated these realizations and my acting on them by months – nay, years!
Every prompt and conversation chipped away at my self-doubt and gave me the clarity and confidence to articulate what I want to do next and what I don’t want to do next.
Because I’ve grown as a person through other people’s stories and kindness, I’m sharing the decisions that got me here so they may serve you on your journey.
Find your connection point (with James Linton)
James Linton, my guest for this episode, is a social engineer and email prankster known for duping high-profile celebrities and politicians.
He discovered his inclinations for information security almost accidentally, while experimenting with his UX designer abilities and pursuing his curiosity. One thing led to another and now his Wikipedia page leads with this:
But that’s just a moment in his evolution as a human – and as an information security professional. I found out the rest from James himself, who openly shared his experience of finding a way to harness his abilities to help others while also living and working on his terms.
We talked about the struggles he went through and the decisions he made along the way, highlighting how we can make our psychology work for us instead of against us.
Use evolutionary psychology to improve mental clarity (with Tim Ash)
Tim Ash is a great voice that you need to hear to build more positivity and momentum towards all the good things you want to develop in your life. Start by hitting the play button:
What I really appreciate about Tim is his dedication to sharing all his knowledge and putting it to work – constantly. He published over 100 articles about digital growth, he did the Landing Page Optimization Podcast with over 130 episodes, and he’s also a certified Tai Chi instructor, a poet, painter, and an avid photographer.
During our conversation, I could see all of his diverse experiences converging and surfacing valuable life lessons we can all use to elevate our decisions and way of life.
How to make better decisions by focusing on the process (with Erno Hannink)
Today’s episode is focused on this crucial topic: our process for making decisions and how we can pick and choose ideas, experiences, and people to help us improve it so that we elevate multiple aspects of our lives.
Erno is the kind of person who exudes optimism and he proved it once again during our conversation. Even when confronted with tough times and difficult decisions, as we all are these days, he still focuses on mind and body health.
Before you press play, start with this idea my guest, Erno Hannink, shared: don’t evaluate the result of your decisions but focus on the thought process behind it. You’ll soon understand why that makes a huge difference.
Make short-term changes for your long-term endgame (with Tom Hirst)
My guest today, Tom Hirst, generously shares how he’s progressed on all three fronts during the last decade, highlighting the decisions he used to achieve balance and the thinking behind them. The way he considers the choices and actions he’s making today and their future impact is a highly valuable lesson in strategic thinking. I learn a lot from this conversation and I hope you will too!
This is a fast-paced episode that packs a lot of energy and that might be just what you need to find your own priorities and engineer your growth from here on. Keep a notebook close, you’ll want to take notes!
How do you know? By listening to this podcast, of course. Gave the pilot episode a listen over the weekend. It was great all around - good interview(er/ee), great topics covered. Did not feel like a pilot episode at all. This podcast is going (and playing) places!
