A distinct pleasure to welcome Shane Parrish to the show. Shane joins me in a very intimate conversation about curating your life, being a wisdom seeker, and why you need to be serious about reading.
TODAY’S DISCUSSION GUIDE:
Why we ALL need to be wisdom seekers.
The importance of thinking critically.
How this spirit of being a “wisdom seeker” makes for a more innovative and creative business culture.
How we change the societal paradigm from blindly
Curation as a personal development and business development strategy.
But whether you realize it or not, we are ALL curators, and we are all constantly curating our life. Not to mention curating “the next hour.”
How the process of curation builds loyalty and trust. And how YOU can do the same.
Are we all creatives?
The power of reading. How to read, why to read, and what reading opens up in your mind (the possibilities).
“Reading a news article is like seeing the tip of the iceberg. Reading a book is finding out what’s under the surface…”
Shane explains his intense (and utterly fascinating) process of how he consumes a book.
