Show Notes:

  • Human relationships, choices, empathy, and digging into our own emotions
  • Difference between quitting & surrender
  • Why people jump ship or give up mid-pursuit
  • Sharing your goals or ideas can either cause stagnation or incite accountability
  • Allowing for bends, obstacles and detours in your roadmap
  • Idealistic vs. realistic goals and dreams
  • Understanding that obstacles aren’t always the result of bad decisions
  • Life is a series of choices and can’t predict unexpected circumstances
  • Living through and into the journey is just as important as the end result
  • Does our culture of instant access, convenience + outsourcing cause us to live less gratifying lives?
  • What causes us to create our own mutiny?
  • Short term vs. long term decisions and visions are not mutually exclusive
  • Stories of people who have such strong commitment + self-belief that the only option is success, no matter how long it takes (Bob Taylor, Steve Jobs)
  • Cloud exercise as way to visualize then actualize your vision and goals
  • Relationships and people aren’t perfect, it’s important to listen, empathize and adjust
  • Tips to be successful and not jump ship:
    • Have a growth mindset
    • Know your appetite for this type of venture
    • Must be ok with making adjustments along the way
    • Adversity will reveal who you truly are and not who you say you are
