    #19: 4 Lessons From 4 Years at DoorDash

    Four years ago I left a comfortable job at a great company (LinkedIn) to join DoorDash, a Series C startup that had ~250 people. I want to reflect on lessons learned during this period. In this episode I discuss the top four that stand out: 1) Optimize for learning and impact, 2) Your limits are far beyond what you think they are, 3) Set boundaries, 4) Pause before placing judgment.

    #18: How to Create a Life Worth Living (Interview with Kevin Delaney, VP of L&D at LinkedIn)

    #18: How to Create a Life Worth Living (Interview with Kevin Delaney, VP of L&D at LinkedIn)

    In this episode, I interview Kevin Delaney and dive into his book, A Life Worth Living: Finding Your Purpose and Daring to Live the Life You've Imagined. Kevin is a VP at LinkedIn where he leads Learning and Development. Prior to that, he was an HR exec at VMware and several other companies. He's a former colleague of mine, and someone I consider to be a mentor and friend. 

    In our conversation, we discuss his lessons from a serious health challenge, his approach to balancing annual planning with daily rituals, his unique perspective on dealing with setbacks, and, of course, how to create a life worth living. Kevin is one of my all-time favorite people and someone who truly walks the talk. I hope you enjoy our conversation. You can read his book here.

    #17: How to Create a Mindset that Prepares You for Everyday Challenges

    #17: How to Create a Mindset that Prepares You for Everyday Challenges

    Several years ago, someone who I thought I could trust did something that hurt me. I was frustrated and angry. I was hurt. This person's actions blindsided me and I wasn't able to focus or be productive for the rest of the day. Wisdom from the Stoics--Marcus Aurelius in particular--got me back on my feet. 

    In this episode, I discuss how a simple step, a mindset really, will help us conquer the day-to-day challenges we're going to face. I also share the daily habits that help me perform at my best.

    When COVID hit, Kyle Fackrell had to hit pause on the musical he was creating. Thankfully, this gave him space to make Space Race, the hit musical series now available on YouTube. Space Race is literally a one-man show where Kyle did all the writing, composing, singing, acting, and editing. In this conversation, Kyle discusses his creative process, reveals how Space Race came about, and shares how constraints unlock creativity.

Great insights - recommend to all my peers

Nathan hits the mark - providing highly applicable insights to anyone looking to make the most out of their career. I appreciate the fact that each episode is <10 minutes...the perfect amount of time to listen so I don’t have to commit a large chunk of time to finish a podcast in one sitting. Looking forward to more episodes...
