Rank #3: The Power of Pretending

Podcast cover
Read more
Pretending plays a powerful role in our lives. For instance, we're good at telling ourselves that certain things are a problem. Funny enough though, these so-called problems don't always have anything to do with what's happening right now, but what might happen. What if we use our power of pretending to help us put aside these "problems" so they don't get in the way of doing meaningful work?

Podcast cover
Read more
When we think about doing meaningful work, it's hard not to be scared. But that fear can play a valuable role. Instead of letting fear feed on us and our insecurities, we can turn it around and make it the "stoke" or fuel for our meaningful work.

In this final episode of the series on goals, it's time to be really honest about uncertainty. As helpful as we find Monte Carlo simulations, they doesn't remove all uncertainty.

Rank #8: Steep Learning Curve

Podcast cover
Read more
There's a feeling that comes with being a beginner. But we sometimes avoid doing new things because a steep learning curve can be painful --- emotionally, physically, mentally. The power of being a beginner though can help build stoke. So, what if instead of avoiding that feeling we sought it out?

Rank #9: Learning to Cope with Anxiety

Podcast cover
Read more
In order to both do our work as real advisors AND do it for a long time, we need to do a better job taking care of ourselves. Because here's the reality. Our clients need a place they can come to dump their anxiety, and if we aren't taking care of ourselves, we'll drown beneath their anxieties and our own anxieties, too.

The stereotypes we associate with business - boring, guys in suits, only about profit - aren't the only options available to us.
