    Guy Kawasaki - How To "Think Remarkable" with a Growth Mindset (Ep 322)

    Guy Kawasaki - How To "Think Remarkable" with a Growth Mindset (Ep 322)

    Guy Kawasaki is a bona fide legend. He is an evangelist for innovation, and has been on the front lines of the biggest evolutions in tech; those moments that we’ve all heard about.
     
    In Amy Jo’s mind, Guy is the OG influencer and you’ll hear why.
     
    Guy’s background stretches from his first stint with Apple back in the 80’s all the way through to Canva now. Guy has authored 16 books, the latest of which “Think Remarkable” distills down his own experience, as well as his experience interviewing some of the worlds most interesting people over the years, in order to help you become a remarkable person.
     
    In this episode, Guy gives his take on what Why Not Now? means to him as well as discusses his “Why Not Now?” moment going back to work with Apple in the 90’s. Guy talks through how people make decisions, and how that process changes over time. He also shares the secret to his success (no big deal!) and what it takes for him to get into that mindset.
     
    This conversation is wide ranging to say the least. Guy and Amy Jo discuss AI now and in future, fatherhood, growth mindset, how to navigate healthy tension conversations and the one question you should ask people you disagree with, how to reinvent yourself, your company or your community, defaulting to “YES” and much more.
     
    Guy has a way of sparking curiosity in people that is unmatched, and after listening to this conversation, we hope he sparks something for you to truly become remarkable.

She took a leap of faith, chose the latter, and the rest is history.

    Steven Kotler - Living in "Flow" to Reach Your Peak Performance (Ep 319)

    Steven Kotler studied journalism, poetry, and writing in school. When he told others about his plans to conduct a neurobiological study, some literally laughed in his face. But Steven’s interviews with Flow State experts made him an authority on the subject, and he set out to help others reach peak performance.
    He now works with entrepreneurs, athletes, and leaders of some of the biggest companies in the world, helping them reach this state of “Flow” to become up to 500% more productive. He is also a 4 x NYT Bestselling Author. According to Steven, Flow is how you turbo boost your results beyond all expectations.
    In this episode of Why Not Now?, Steven and Amy Jo talk about overcoming imposter syndrome, how to get into Flow and how living a “Flow” Lifestyle can bring more purpose and happiness into our lives. They also talk about the difference in mindset between peak performers and non-peak performers.
    Steven tells Amy Jo that we have 5 major intrinsic motivators: curiosity, passion, purpose, autonomy, and mastery. To perform at our best, they must all point in the same direction. That is when we reach our Flow State.
