    On Harnessing Passion

    On Harnessing Passion

    Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods Today's insight was inspired by American novelist, poet, and one of the pioneers of the Beat Generation, Jack Kerouac.
    “My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.”
    –Jack Kerouac
    Passion is what makes life worth living. But controlling your passions is just as important as cultivating them. When it comes to a healthy life, balancing your enthusiasm and your self-discipline are the dual keys to success.

    On Ignorance and Confidence

    On Ignorance and Confidence

    Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods
     
    Today's insight was inspired by American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer, Mark Twain.
     
     “All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure.”
     
    –Mark Twain
     
    The iconic writer provides us with a humorous, yet quite profound piece of advice in the above quip. You see, sometimes not knowing what you supposedly are unable to do is just enough of an edge to get that thing done. Believe in yourself, don’t listen to naysayers, and don’t accept limitations. Do that, and success is sure.

    On Knowing Yourself, and Your Enemy

    On Knowing Yourself, and Your Enemy

    Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods Today's insight was inspired by the Ancient Chinese military treatise, The Art of War by Sun Tsu.
    “Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.”
    — Sun Tzu
    The iconic military strategist’s seminal work, “The Art of War,” is replete with lessons about life. Here, Sun Tzu reminds us that the key to victory is not only knowing your enemy, but also knowing yourself. Until you master yourself, you can never really be confident in any of life’s battles.

    Will AI destroy Humankind Featuring Robert Deadman

    Will AI destroy Humankind Featuring Robert Deadman

    Up next on way of the Renaissance Man, Will AI destroy Humankind Featuring Robert Deadman —and other lighthearted subjects. Way of the Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods Will AI destroy humankind—and other lighthearted subjects. That’s the serious, yet playfully intriguing discussion I had with my friend, computer scientist, investor and fellow Renaissance Man, Robert Deadman (and yes, that is his real last name). Robert is one of those rare individuals who possesses a breadth of knowledge that he can eloquently translate into casual conversation, even about such advanced and interesting topics as the rise of Artificial Intelligence, or AI, and the potential benefits and dangers of this technology. In this wide-ranging conversation, Robert and I discuss the current state of AI, and what the future holds for this ubiquitous technology. Topics here include such questions as… At what point will AI begin making its own decisions? How far away is this circumstance? What is the role of quantum computing in this question? Will AI actually have “free will”? When will the move from “Artificial Intelligence” become “Artificial Sentience”? Can we solve the so-called “Alignment” problem of AI, and how can we really understand this concept? I absolutely loved this conversation with the fascinating Robert Deadman, and at the risk of alienating my other guests, I must say that this was my favorite podcast yet—and I hope you think so as well. And now, my interview with Robert Deadman.

    Wisdom of a Bull Rider

    Wisdom of a Bull Rider

    Wisdom of a Bull Rider
     
    Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods
     
    Today's insight was inspired by American professional rodeo cowboy, Hall of Fame world champion bull rider, and co-founder of the PBR,  Professional Bull Riders organization, Tuff Hedeman.
     

     
    “Bear down, try hard and never quit. NEVER!”
     
     –Tuff Hedeman, World Champion Bull Rider
     
     
    There’s perhaps no sport that requires more grit, determination and mental and physical toughness than bull riding. Nobody knows that better than four-time world champion Tuff Hedeman. One of Tuff’s keys to success was, well, his toughness. No matter how hard things got or how much pain he felt, Tuff got on that bull and never quit. And though the lives of most people don’t require strapping themselves to a 1600 lb.-mass of bucking muscle, we all have our own personal bulls to ride. So when things get tough, remember what Tuff says. Never quit. NEVER!

    Investor Kevin O'Leary Enters the Renaissance Man's Shark Tank

    Investor Kevin O'Leary Enters the Renaissance Man's Shark Tank

    Up next on way of the Renaissance Man, investor Kevin O’Leary enters the Renaissance Man shark tank…. Kevin O’Leary, also known by his nickname, “Mr. Wonderful,” is one of the stars of the CNBC show “Shark Tank,” a favorite TV program of this entrepreneurial Renaissance Man. In this episode, I turn the tables on Mr. Wonderful as he enters the Renaissance Man shark tank to talk about his new company, cryptocurrency trading platform WonderFi. The interview took place on the cusp of an interesting time for cryptocurrency, as the big June 2022 swoon in the price of Bitcoin has rattled investors, along with many companies in the industry. According to O’Leary, what Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies really need to flourish is, ironically, some industry regulation, and as he puts it, “that’s when the real money is going to come into it.” Along with WonderFi CEO Ben Samaroo, O’Leary explains that despite the hype of cryptocurrencies, the big money players such as pension funds and sovereign wealth funds have yet to embrace the asset class. Once this happens, which will take a regulated, compliant and transparent platform such as that provided by WonderFi, the big gains in cryptocurrencies will really begin. I very much enjoyed my discussion with Mr. Wonderful and his partner Ben Samaroo, and it couldn’t come at a more interesting time for the cryptocurrency industry. And now, my interview with Kevin O’Leary and Ben Samaroo…
