James Altucher: Experiment and Give Up Fast

To list all of James Altucher’s accomplishments would take more space than we have here, but the short version is this: he’s written something like 18 books, he’s got a wildly popular blog called the Altucher Confidential, an awesome podcast, and he’s started 20 (yes, 20!) companies– and that’s just the highlights. But what makes James really stand out in my opinion is his honesty, specifically his honesty about failure. Failure is an inevitable part of the creative process, so it’s something that all creators need to understand in a very nuanced way. Today on the podcast, We talk about a great framework for a daily checklist: Am I doing something for my physical health? For my personal relationships, creativity, and practicing some gratitude? We get into some specific tips on how to deal with anxiety, specifically how to keep it from coming between you and your dreams James talks about why you need to think of yourself as a business (literally as a collection of SKUs) and why we’re all likely to be “hyphens” in the future Enjoy! You can only learn from experience, so try anything. FOLLOW JAMES: website | twitter | instagram Watch the Episode James’ episode was featured in the 30 Days of Genius […]
