Nate Bargatze: Creativity, Comedy + Never Settling

Today on the show we have one of my favorite comedians, Nate Bargatze. If you’re not aware of Nate’s work, consider this intro a gift – he’s on a rocket ship right now, one of the top up-and-coming comics in the game. After listening to our conversation here, you’ll want to check out his brand new NetFlix special that just dropped. He’s laugh-out-loud funny and simultaneously has great insight around following dreams and creating success rather than hoping it “happens.”  In our conversation we talk about his early life – how he found and decided to pursue his passion in the face of challenging odds (how many people become a standup comedian?), his earliest experiences of storytelling, and what it was like to have a father who is a magician and a clown. (It’s hilarious.) In this episode we cover a LOT… The difficulty of consistently creating good work and why consistency matters most The benefits of staying uncomfortable… The importance of life-long learning and community – to every creator.  Must haves. The power of saying ‘yes.’ The psychology of persistence and success – how to keep going when everyone else doesn’t see your dream. …and lots more Enjoy and […]

Thing 1: Be Great At Your Craft Learning doesn’t end when you’re no longer in the classroom.

Harnessing Your Human Nature for Success with Robert Greene

Today we welcome back on the show the 6x international bestselling author, Robert Greene.  Robert has had huge impact in my life with books like Mastery, 48 Laws of Power, and the 33 Strategies of War. And in this episode we go deep on his newest book – and my new favorite – The Laws of Human Nature, a brilliant consolidation of the various theories on human nature – how to better understand them and use them to grow. We dive deep into: You are a lot weirder than you think you are. WE ALL ARE in fact. We’re repressing so many sides of who we are – most often without even knowing it. We’re trying to stand out.  We’re trying to fit in. The stuff we repress and try to hide are like a stranger within us.  Knowing all this – and how to navigate it – gives us personal power. It it possible to harness our “dark side” for increased creativity, wisdom, strength and character? Robert argues that, not only is it something worth tapping into, it’s THE source of power missing in your life. Robert’s recent near-death experience has given him a profound sense of gratitude, how it has compelled […]
