This part has been really helpful:
Letting go of the idea of “deserving” is incredibly difficult to do. But once rid of it, it leaves us with a starkly simple view of the world. Inflict no unnecessary pain on others or on yourself. Be pragmatic in all things. Approach problems scientifically and without idealism. Be honest. Be compassionate. Even when it feels impossible.
I read the book several years ago. I agree with most of his tenets. However, I found his writing style off putting. I just couldn’t relate to the life he lead or any of the autobiographical parts of the early part of the book.
The biggest part of the book that helped me was his discussion on death and grieving. At the time I hadn’t experienced a significant death in my life and since I have had to grieve two. The anecdotes and discussion on grieving personally helped. Still not the biggest fan of his style but definitely substance there.
Thanks to everyone who tuned in yesterday or downloaded the podcast afterwards.
Next month, we’ll be basing our podcast around the topic of Creativity with David Speed, host of the Creative Rebels podcast and an incredible street artist who wrestling fans may recognize from his recent Brodie Lee mural in London.
guys, a reminder that we go live next Thursday, May 20 at 3pm EDT with a special guest. You probably know David Speed best from his Brodie Lee mural in London. @davidspeeduk on ig
We’ve been reading Seth Godin’s newest book, “The Practice.” Seth’s writing has had a profound impact on my career for over a decade. Seth was also a guest on David’s “Creative Rebels” podcast. This would be a great primer if reading the book isn’t for you.
