    The 3 Good Podcast: Episode 44 A Book Review of Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari

    The 3 Good Podcast: Episode 44 A Book Review of Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari

    In this episode, Sukh reviews the best-selling book Sapiens by author and historian Yuval Noah Harari.


    The book is a dispassionate and relentless look at human history through the lens of three significant events for the development of Homo Sapiens as a species - 1. The Cognitive Revolution 2. The Agricultural Revolution and 3. The Scientific Revolution.


    It's not an easy book to consume, because it is challenging to what we think we know of human history, and forces you to examine your own insights.


    You can buy the book from Amazon here.

    The 3 Good Podcast: Episode 43 This Is Not Working From Home

    The 3 Good Podcast: Episode 43 This Is Not Working From Home

    In this episode, Sukh welcomes back guest Gemma Dale. They discuss the problem of calling this working from home, when the reality is we wouldn't choose to work from home under these circumstances - no social connections, no meetings in-person, having to homeschool if you're a parent or care for those in need. 


    They talk about the challenges of exiting lockdown without a clear plan of what a new working model will look like, and how there's opportunity to really seek out and explore what the workforce needs and wants, and balancing that with the needs of the organisation.


    They also talk about the impact of lockdown on mental health and how we won't really know the impact for months (or maybe longer) due to lockdown causing people to experience trauma.

    The 3 Good Podcast: Episode 40 The Comfort of Avoidance and Reliance on Others

    The 3 Good Podcast: Episode 40 The Comfort of Avoidance and Reliance on Others

    Sukh discusses one of the unexpected things to arise from the situation with Covid which is the personal spotlight on the discomfort people have in being with their own thoughts, and the impact this has on our personal thinking capacity and capability. 


    Sukh also explores how we've been reliant on others, and how this may have reduced our capability to understand our own resilience and what we can survive.


    He also presents a focus to allow people to recognise that just by living through the last 10 months, we have displayed for ourselves exactly what kind of resilience we have and the strength we've needed to get through.
