The White Party hangover

Hi Reader, I hope you’re having a rad start to the weekend. And I hope our friends impacted by Hurricane Beryl are staying safe. One of the biggest mistakes people make in the name of "productivity" is not truly understanding their WHY. Why do you want more time? Why do you want more output? Supercharge your Productivity is the only course that connects the pursuit of productivity to life’s larger questions so you can design a system that works for you.

Imagine you’re about to have your first kid. But your career is muddling along and you don’t have a reliable source of income. You need a plan to grow your wealth. Quickly. Oh BTW it’s the start the pandemic where crypto is going "to the moon." Where does this take you? A wild ride involving anonymous crypto co-founders, millions of dollars (of paper profits) and getting hacked (or bamboozled). This week on The Examined Life Podcast, we’re joined by writer and serial entrepreneur Nat Eliason....

Hello Reader, I hope you’re enjoying a long holiday weekend. Is the summer giving you time for the nagging feeling of, is this it? Or are you finding it hard to unplug — without guilt or worry? The traditional playbook of success doesn’t account for fulfillment, existential angst, creative inspiration and – most importantly – feeling a deep sense of aliveness. It doesn’t solve for a life well-lived. If you're ready to rewrite your success playbook, we’ve created a unique coaching experience...

Happy Independence day, friends! There’s a simple playbook for happiness. One we’ve been taught since we were kids. Study hard. Get a good job. Climb the ladder. Make a bunch of money. And then you’ll be happy. So why do so many of us feel unfulfilled, lost and rudderless? This week on The Examined Life Podcast, we’re joined by Stephanie Harrison, an expert on the psychology of happiness and the author of New Happy. We ask the question: What do we get wrong about happiness? (Watch on YouTube)...

Is IQ Overrated?

Everyone loves to talk about IQ. It’s the raw brain power that knocks our socks off. But EQ, or emotional intelligence, might be even more powerful. It provides the finesse to interact with your peers, confidence to pitch to investors and charisma to recruit top talent. IQ is something we’re born with. But what about social intelligence? This week, on a solo episode of The Examined Life Podcast, Khe asks the question: How do you develop social intelligence? (Watch on YouTube) 🎧 Or listen on...

The new status symbols

Hi Reader, Happy Juneteenth! And I hope my friends in the Northeast are staying cool in the heat dome. Are you trapped in the never-ending game of whack-a-mole with your goals, tasks and priorities? Do you keep tackling the “small” things and putting off the “big” things. Supercharge your Productivity is the only course that connects the pursuit of productivity to life’s larger questions so you can design a system that works for you.

When I was in college, everyone wanted to be a banker or consultant. Then everyone wanted to be a venture-backed founder. But is the real cheat code building a lifestyle business? A business without investors and board meetings — where you choose freedom above everything else. This week on The Examined Life Podcast, we’re joined by founder, CEO and gardener extraordinaire Kevin Espiritu. We ask the question: How do you build a lifestyle business? (Watch on YouTube) 🎧 Or listen on Spotify,...

A simple tip to make you more likable

If that's you, we’ve created a unique coaching experience for ambitious professionals ready to make a bold career pivot. Join our next Coaching cohort→ 🎧 In this week's podcast, we ask: How do you get off the hedonic...

Are your goals making you unhappy?

Becoming a published author is a power move. It confers status, brings "press accolades" and shows the world that you can do hard things. But the journey is never straightforward. It starts with a childhood dream. Then turns into the emotional roller coaster of landing that first book deal. And then the “meh” of publishing your next book. The process dredges up the complexities of ambition, the nature of happiness and the influence of childhood experiences on self-worth. This week on The...

The Magic Window has closed

Hi Reader, I hope you’re having a rad start to the weekend - I just touched down in LA from Mexico. Happy Pride Month, especially to our friends in the LGBTQ+ community. As you know, we're planning our first IRL event for later this summer. We just booked the venue and we'll be sharing more shortly. Could you do us a solid and tell us a bit more about your professional path (with a simple click): 1. I currently work on Wall Street 2. I used to work on Wall Street but left 3. I'm trying to get...
