David Epstein On Why Late Bloomers Win

“You don’t change your identity overnight. You have to start with these little keyhole experiments until something that you think that was just an interest becomes a real passion or a vocation.” David Epstein Conventional wisdom dictates that mastery demands an early start. Relentless focus at the exclusion of other pursuits. And as many hours of deliberate practice as humanly possible. Be it violin, painting, basketball or boat building, there’s simply no substitute for a life wholly devoted to developing that narrowly defined skill. Hence the “10,000 hour rule” zeitgeist embrace — an edict divined by psychologist Anders Ericcson and made famous by Malcolm Gladwell. But is this actually true? Today’s guest put this theory to the test, researching the world’s top performers across a wide variety of disciplines to discover a most counter-intuitive truth — that early specialization is actually the exception to the rule. It turns out that the most successful among us are thos...

Lori Gottlieb: Stories From A Therapist In Therapy

“We can’t have change without loss, which is why so often people say they want change but nonetheless stay exactly the same.” Lori Gottlieb Let’s talk about talking to someone. Personally, I’ve been in and out of therapy for more than two decades. Overthe last couple years, I’ve been deeply immersed in a weekly therapist-led men’s group — intimate game-changing sessions that have helped me work through deep-seated stuff that lives and breathes beyond 12-step. We’re only as sick as our secrets. The path to healing and personal growth requires openly sharing our hidden struggles. Bearing our vulnerabilities. And allowing others to identify the blind spots that elude us. My point is that we all need help. And as today’s guest will openly admit, even therapists benefit from therapy. A Los Angeles-based psychotherapist, journalist and author,Lori Gottliebwrites the weekly ‘Dear Therapist’ column for The Atlantic.Shecontributes to several prominent publications including The N...

Gwen Jorgensen’s Champion Mindset: Big Dreams, Taking Risks & Following Your Heart

“It doesn’t matter what other people think. Not everyone is going to always support you 100% but as long as you are doing you and you know that you’re becoming a better person then that’s what’s important.” Gwen Jorgensen How does a relatively conservative, risk averse person evolve into an unbreakable champion? Someone confident enough to put everything on the line for an audacious dream? This is the story of Gwen Jorgensen — an accountant turned ‘Queen of Triathlon’ who walked away from swim-bike-run at the peak of her powers to ply her skills in an entirely new discipline: the marathon. Gwen’s athletic career began as a swimmer, competing at the University of Wisconsin as a walk on before making the switch to track & field, maturing into an NCAA standout and Big 10 Champion.But the end of college marked the end of her athletic ambitions. Declininga professional running career, she opted for civilian life, joiningErnst & Young as a CPA. Eventually, USA Triathlon lured Gw...

How to Unlearn: Humble The Poet On Simple Truths For A Better Life

“We all have the unlimited power to shift our perspective, and with that the unlimited power to change the way we feel about life.” Humble The Poet We craft our identity around story. And that story is comprised of beliefs. But you are not your beliefs. And that story isn’t just incomplete, it’s generally wrong. The path to self-actualization requires deconstructing that story. And disentangling your beliefs from the truth of your highest self. To do this we must unlearn much of what we reflexively accept as truth. And open ourselves to a more expansive perspective. My guest for this exploration is the Toronto-based, rapper, author and spoken word artist, Kanwer Singh, known broadly asHumble The Poet. Covered in tattoos, a thick beard, and Sikh head wrap, Humblecommands attention with his silly smile and warm, inviting presence. A former school teacher turned artist, he challenges conventional wisdom with dynamic live sets that simultaneously entertain while questioning the stat...

How to Unlearn: Humble The Poet On Simple Truths For A Better Life

Annaka Harris On Consciousness

“Sometimes, we have to completely let go of intuitions that are actually giving us false information about reality.” Annaka Harris What is consciousness? How does it arise? And why does it exist? We take ‘experience’ for granted. But the very existence of consciousness raises profound questions: Why would any collection of matter in the universe be conscious? How are we able to think about this? And why should we? Our guide for today’s philosophic and scientific exploration of these mysteries isAnnaka Harris. An editor and consultant for sciencewriters specializing in neuroscience and physics,Annaka is the author of the children’s book I Wonder,a collaborator on the Mindful Games Activity Cards, by Susan Kaiser Greenland, and a volunteer mindfulness teacher for the Inner Kids organization. Annaka’s work has appeared inThe New York Timesand all of her guided meditations and lessons for children are available on the Waking Up app, the digital meditation platform created by her ...

Toby Morse On Punk, Parenting & PMA

“The key to being positive and happy is doing what you love. I’m very lucky to still be able to do that. I don’t have a ‘Plan B’. I never really had one. I just live my life.” Toby Morse Tattoos. High intensity sound. Stage diving. For the unfamiliar, it’s chaos. Scary. Violent, even. But to today’s guest, beinghardcore straight edgeis magical — a grassroots community dedicated to art, not anarchy. Celebrating life. And making the world a better place. Best known around the world as the charismatic, energetic and always smiling front man for hardcore punk band H2O,Toby Morse was raised by a single mom in Massachusetts before moving to New York City in 1988 with a dream of becoming a musician. Immersing himself in the burgeoning punk rock scene of Manhattan’s Lower East Side, he worked odd jobs. He was a roadie. And in 1994, inspired by Bad Brains,he formed a band that would ultimately become synonymous with the Straight Edge and Positive Mental Attitude (‘PMA”) movements...

Titus Welliver On Gratitude & Great Art

“Gratitude and humility attract opportunity and success.” Titus Welliver Hey it’sthat guy. You know the guy, right? The guy with the crazy moustache in that Ben Affleck movie? The Man In BlackfromLost?The Irish gangster in Sons of Anarchy? Oh, right. THAT GUY. Titus Welliver has one of the longest lists of working actor credits in Hollywood. Nonetheless, this über-talented veteran of stage and screen spent most of his storied career slightly outside Tinsletown’s white hot spotlight. But that changed with the 2014 premier of Amazon’s Original SeriesBosch. A hardboiled noir crime procedural based on a series of Michael Connelly novels, the show caught fire and is currently in production on its sixth season. Suffice it to say, Titus’ heavily lauded portrayal ofL.A.P.D. detective Harry Bosch landed him center on thezeitgeist stage. But this man is much more than an amazing actor finally enjoying his moment. He is a friend. And a true artist. Raised by a fashion illustrator mom an...
