    #159: Learning from History (AKA You Aren't Special)

    #159: Learning from History (AKA You Aren't Special)

    On this episode of Seeking Wisdom, DC and Adam dive into the lesson that inspired the show – why we all need to learn from history. Unfortunately, this is a lesson that's hard to learn and one that DC found especially difficult to internalize. Despite what we're told as children, we're not inherently special. The lessons learned by our parents and grandparents do apply to today. Tune into the full episode to learn how you too can prioritize learning from history.

    #158: Prioritize the Biggest Rocks (and Don't Feel Guilty if You Never Get to the Small Ones)

    #158: Prioritize the Biggest Rocks (and Don't Feel Guilty if You Never Get to the Small Ones)

    On this episode, DC and Adam dig into the next lesson DC wishes knew when he was younger – how to prioritize what matters most and why it doesn't actually matter if you never get to any of the "the small rocks." In other words, do the one thing that will move you closer to your goal. That might take five minutes or it could take many days. Either way, this method of working is the anti-checklist. Tune in to find out why.

    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

    #156: The Optimization Trap (and How to Avoid It)

    On this episode of Seeking Wisdom, DC and Adam touch on one of DC's vices – shiny distractions. In fact, it's DC's self-proclaimed weakness. As an eternal optimist, DC is always optimizing. But that puts your outlook only a day, week, or month out. So he's learned to set guardrails to help him avoid the next new thing and instead focus on the bigger picture. Find out how he does it in this episode. Like this episode? Be sure to leave a ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ review and share the pod with your friends.
