So much about winning and achieving…
I really enjoyed hearing Scott Barry Kaufman on Sam Harris and Coleman Hughes.
But this podcast seems to be about winning, achieving, greatness.
Do you think maybe these soul destroying concepts were communicated to us- overtly or subconsciously- by our status-obsessed parents? The old “my son, the doctor” crap. And that maybe whole humans should not be focused on these greatness goals, but rather focused on their own individuation? Sure, greatness might be the result, but as a goal, it is probably why the world is in such a pickle right now.
Here’s more proof that being smart or a subject matter expert means you know how to make a podcast.
Stop making cheesy jokes and interrupting your guests.
SBK- please read What Got You Here Wont Get You There
Good content and guests but the interviewer seems to be obsessed with his own ideas and demonstrating how smart he is. Scott, if you’re reading this I’d suggest you read Marshall Goldsmiths What Got You Here Wont Get You There. It might help you further develop your interpersonal style.
