TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:

  1. When you’re at a crossroads, ask yourself the deathbed question and the plan B question. Which of the options would you regret more? What would you do if the first idea fails?
  2. Be happy first. Then do great work. The big success follows.
  3. Start your morning with 3 prompts. What will you let go of, what are you grateful for, and what will you focus on?
  4. When something hasn’t gone your way, add “yet” at the end. Recognize that tiny sliver of light between the door and the frame after you hear the latch click.
  5. Go to a party where you don’t know anyone. Pick up a weird hobby. Start a failure budget. There’s so much you can do when you step outside your comfort zone without the pressure to be successful.
  6. Lose more to win more.
  7. You can become the big fish in a small pond. Different is better than better.
