Have you ever wondered where the time goes? Do you get lost in little tasks and find that nothing actually got done by the end of the day? I’ve been there. I’m sure we all have. That’s why mindset is so important. The truth is, you can’t grow as a business until you allow yourself the time to think. It’s the clarity that comes with that thinking that allows you to focus on what’s really important.

Mike Brown is a former Navy fighter pilot turned entrepreneur. Using the decision-making framework that he learned as an aviator, Mike founded, grew, and exited an 8-figure energy company focusing on land acquisitions. Mike has also invested in and mentored dozens of startups and works with select entrepreneurs as a coach.

It’s okay if you’re struggling right now. Just know that it’s not your fault. These times are unprecedented. Mike finds that daily meditations help him reframe this “new normal”. Recognizing just where you have control and what is out of control is key to staying fully present.

Mike explains how we all have the power to solve our problems. Within everyone is a knowledge and understanding of how to move your business forward. What happens is that we are afraid to act on it. Discovering why you’re erecting roadblocks is the solution to taking the necessary action.

Mike knows a lot about identifying opportunities for asymmetric returns. These are low-risk high-reward situations. Recognize when you can benefit your life and business without actually putting much on the line. That's one of the key activities of successful people.

What have you been depriving the world of? How are you going to start sharing it? Tell me in the comments on the episode page!

In this episode

  • Identifying what actually matters through mindfulness and meditation
  • The most important question for a business owner to ask themself
  • What happens when you place value on yourself
  • What asymmetric returns are and how they represent opportunities all around us
  • Why you shouldn’t blame yourself when you or your business experience struggle

Quotes

“Generally, any business owner knows that there’s one thing that they need to take care of that’s going to move the ball forward.” [12:53]

“We all have this inner-wisdom that we can tap into. But then we feel it and are afraid to act on it.” [17:03]

“I’m always going to take a bet on myself because I know that if I invest in myself, I am going to see a return on that investment. I can control that better than any other investment that I can make.” [37:11]

“Have some compassion for yourself. This isn’t your fault. We’re going to get through this. But it’s okay if you’re struggling. It’s okay to feel those emotions of sadness or anger. Allow whatever is coming up to come up because this is a really difficult situation.” [45:20]

NEW Look at Defense Innovation with Mike Brown (Director, Defense Innovation Unit)

The NEW Look
Episode artwork
Read more

American leadership in science and technology is at risk. As our own investment in research and development has dwindled, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has not only substantially increased their investment in the technologies of the future, but stolen American intellectual property in a way that has quickly closed what was once a formidable gap in scientific capabilities. As we’ve come to realize with our medical supply chains, a world in which we rely on the CCP for critical technologies – whether it be 5G or Artificial Intelligence – is a direct threat to our national security. But what is the government doing to combat the CCP’s predatory technology practices, and what more can be done to maintain America’s leadership in these critical fields?

To explore these questions, Rep. Gallagher is joined by Mike Brown, the Director of the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) at the U.S. Department of Defense and the co-author of a Pentagon study on China’s participation in the U.S. venture ecosystem. While the conversation focuses largely on Mike Brown’s position at DIU, his experience as a Silicon Valley CEO, and how technological innovation will factor into great power competition with China, the two discuss more than geopolitics and whether or not the U.S. and China are entering a new Cold War. They also recommend bingeworthy shows on Netflix and elaborate the art of being in an amateur rock/dance band.

Conscious Creators Show — Make A Life Through Your Art Without Selling Your Soul

“A lot of the awful things happening out there aren’t our fault, and we can be compassionate with ourselves around that, and still make decisions and learn from our mistakes.” –Mike Brown

Welcome to the Conscious Creators Show; where through intimate and insightful interviews with authors, actors, musicians, entrepreneurs and other podcasters, you'll learn tools and tactics to 10x your creativity and strategies to grow and monetize your audience.

Mike Brown is an entrepreneur, investor and guerrilla philosopher. Prior to founding, operating and exiting an 8-figure oil and gas company, Mike flew F/A-18 Super Hornets for the Navy and brings the fighter pilot spirit to entrepreneurship. When he isn’t dreaming up his next business or telling Navy stories, you can usually find him riding mountain bikes in the foothills of Golden, CO.

Julian Gluck grew up in LaGrange, Georgia and became a bomber pilot after graduating from the United States Air Force Academy. He was selected as the 2018 Air Force Times Airman of the Year for his community and combat service. Julian is active in international non-profit leadership, public speaking, and was recently honored on the 2020 Forbes 30 Under 30 for Law & Policy. He is on Instagram at @JulianRGluck and LinkedIn.

On today’s episode of the Conscious Creators podcast, host Sachit Gupta speaks with his friends Mike Brown and Julian Gluck about the current COVID-19 global pandemic. Learn about strategies and lessons they learned in the Navy and Air Force to help you manage the current situation, from dealing with grief and trauma to taking action in moments of crisis.

Episode Highlights: 

  • Mike became involved with an organization called Haymakers for Hope that does amateur boxing fight nights to raise money to fight cancer.
  • Julian was raised to value giving back to his community and be involved with philanthropy.
  • As an investor, Mike believes that humans are essentially bad at evaluating risk because they tend to have an opinion and then look for data to back up their opinion, rather than looking at objective data sets and using that data to form their opinion.
  • There are no downsides to enacting procedures to save lives when the alternative is the pandemic situation we’re now in due to lack of preparedness.
  • Being able to social distance is a privilege.
  • We can’t predict how we’re doing overall as a country because we don’t have enough data, but anecdotal evidence suggests we are at risk of ending up exactly where Italy was with hospitals having to choose who receives care.
  • Decision-making models can be useful to guide you, but you should try to avoid being a slave to them.
  • A useful framework is the OODA Loop: observe, orient, decide, and act.
  • Once you come up with a plan, don’t become attached to the plan.
  • Even after we get past this health crisis, there will be a continuing economic crisis.
  • As a pilot, you follow an emergency protocol to maintain aircraft control, analyze the situation, take proper action, and land as soon as conditions permit. This involves the mantra of Aviate, Navigate, and Communicate.
  • Panicking will always make the situation worse, especially when you have the luxury of time to evaluate data, make an informed decision, and execute the plan.
  • Meditation is a cornerstone of how Mike has constructed his life.
  • It’s a misconception that meditation is about the absence of thought; instead, you can reliably predict that you will have thoughts while meditating, but you learn to observe and honor your thoughts and emotions without being trapped by them and reacting impulsively to them.
  • In response to this crisis, people who are finding the silver lining of humanity experiencing a reset or finding the ability to engage in self-improvement right now, need to balance that optimism with compassion for those of us who are experiencing unthinkable loss and struggle.
  • How do you balance feeling like you could have done more in a situation with having compassion for yourself?
  • Self-compassion will be crucial for each of us to get through this crisis.
  • We are all going to be dealing with grief as COVID-19 unfolds, and the military and our society are notoriously bad at addressing and handling grief. 
  • People tend to engage in comparative trauma instead of allowing themselves to feel what they feel and honor the grief that they feel.
  • Mike recommends practicing “radical gratitude,” which begins with being present.

3 Key Takeaways:

  1. It is best to make decisions and take action based on data, not reactionary emotion.
  2. Compassion for yourself and others during times of crisis is absolutely essential.
  3. We as a society are bad at dealing with death and grief.

Tweetable Quotes:

“I loved being a part of the boxing classes and all of the unarmed combat courses. I think there’s so many lessons that you can apply from within the ring or in a wrestling match that you can take to the outside world.” –Julian Gluck

“It’s really bizarre to me that so many people seem to say, well, let me sit back and see what the government tells me to do here. We all have functioning intellect. We can look at the situation and go, wait a minute, what’s best for my family?” –Mike Brown

“Your net worth is not your self-worth.” –Mike Brown

“A lot of the awful things happening out there aren’t our fault, and we can be compassionate with ourselves around that, and still make decisions and learn from our mistakes.” –Mike Brown

“The important part is to focus on root causes that have instructional fixes for how we can ameliorate or prevent that in the future with a better solution.” –Julian Gluck
