90: Moving from a permission mindset to a freedom mindset with Kylon Gienger

Successful Dropout

For this week's episode I wanted to share an interviewed I did on Stephen Warley's Life Skills That Matter podcast. This was part of an "interview swap" that Stephen and I did, and you can find his interview on Successful Dropout here. Stephen is an absolute boss and is doing some incredible things to push this new paradigm of work we are entering into as a society. I had a blast on his show and  we discussed a lot of things including: Rethinking the American Dream. Calculating the cost of your ideal lifestyle. Moving from a permission mindset to a freedom mindset. What I learned from trying so many different career paths. I explains the concept of self-credentialing. Some inspirational quotes to remember: “My goals are all, they’re all set with the primary focus being, like, how do I want to spend my time and who do I want to spend my time with and the money, I believe, sort of comes as a result of that.” “You stick to doing what you love and building what you love, as long as it’s working, you know, I think it’ll pay off.” “I’ve never wanted to do something just because I’m supposed to do it.” Some coaching advice: I recommended these actions to start breaking out of your comfort zone to try new and different things: 1)  Don’t get hung up on finding the one right thing, pick one and just get started. 2) Switch, pivot, or quit if the first thing you do doesn’t work or you need to do other things as well. 3) Action begets more action, so don’t wait for the inspiration to strike to get started.

84: Real and raw - succeeding despite your circumstances with Kylon Gienger

Successful Dropout

So this episode could potentially destroy my career. I decided to sit down and get really honest about a few beliefs of mine in lieu of an email I received from a listener. Honestly I felt really exposed recording this, and I'm still not sure if it was the right move or not. One thing I always want to make sure and do is be authentic with you guys...and I want us all to be authentic with each other. I think it's really important to open up respectful dialogues and debates on important topics and to try to understand each other's point of view. Successful Dropout is a very special community. I want it to be a place where anyone from any background in any circumstance can succeed and feel like they are home. Resources Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Fankl THANK YOU!

Ep. 32: Mastering the Art of Just in Time Learning | with Kylon Gienger

The Daily Helping

Today our expert guest is Kylon Gienger, an educational and social thought leader, serial entrepreneur, and the host of The Successful Dropout Podcast. Kylon grew up in a mountain cabin, homeschooled with his siblings. He had a lot of curiosity, and the freedom to pursue it. Then, after graduating, he felt the pressure to go to college – it just felt like what people do. A few months into his Freshman year, in the middle of a marketing class, Kylon decided to drop out. Over the next few years, Kylon worked as a youth pastor, construction worker, Navy serviceman, and musician, and started three different businesses. Kylon is still working on a wide variety of projects, including The Successful Dropout, because he truly values freedom with his time and lifestyle – he is a self-described 100% autonomous human being. There’s a concept that Kylon discusses a lot on his show, and he believes it is the one common factor between all of his successful guests: they have mastered the art of “just in time” learning. Formal schooling, for the most part, is “just in case” learning. You get a well-rounded education that theoretically prepares you for anything, but many people end up graduating prepared for nothing. Just in time learning means learning in the context of taking action and taking steps forward – in that way, you’re always learning in the context of doing, and in the context of something that you’re curious about. This creates an incredible retention, and you’ll save time and money in the process. The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway “One of the biggest mistakes that you can make is just to accept the norms of your time, whatever that looks like, and not accepting the norm is the secret to really big success and changing the world.” -- Thank you for joining us on The Daily Helping with Dr. Shuster.
