Wisdom Truth

Knowledge is knowing that you can accomplish something.

Wisdom is recognizing that there are many ways to do it and many factors that determine the outcome.

Self-awareness, humility, and our openness to learn become the building blocks to better decision-making and take us from a place of knowledge to where wisdom can take over.

About Brandon:

Brandon Hakim is on a mission to give you the education you’ll never get in school.

When he was in college, he walks into the dean’s office of his University and says “I feel like we’re getting an outdated education.”

She says…they’re working on it. So he started reading books.

One book turned into two. Then into four. Eventually into over 1,000.

He’s since helped over 360,000 people learn faster, work more efficiently, and download the wisdom from thousands of pages of books into their brains in a fraction of the time it would take to sit down and read a book.

The Freedom Of Learning

We can’t expect to get most things right the first time. That’s the whole essence of learning. By putting ourselves in situations that make us beginner learners, we get the opportunity to experience all-new types of emotions and feelings that we haven’t felt this exact way before.

That is a form of freedom.

We don’t pressure ourselves by thinking we know it all and therefore have to perform at the highest peak of our talent. Instead, we get the chance to mess up, look silly, and learn from all of our mistakes

Our ego may get tested by having us shed this cloak of confidence but in the end, we’ll be more prepared for the journey ahead because most of the time we don’t know it all and we don’t know what will happen.

Having the freedom to be okay with that is one of the more liberating things we can do for ourselves.

The Toolbox of Knowledge

learning

Over the past several years I’ve immersed myself into a deep state of learning more than I ever had before in my life. I’ve been trying to figure out, how do I get better and better each and every day? And not just “better” because that can be anything, but how do I acquire more knowledge, how do I do research on topics that are important to me, how do I push myself past that comfort zone that I lived a lot of my life in and ultimately improve at a very high rate of return.

Let me take a quick step back and kind of give some context behind it. In my teens and in my 20s there were periods where I had a really good work ethic like having a paper route when I was 11 years old and doing that for six years. I would wake up every single day between 5-6 AM, and I’m from upstate New York, so maybe a foot of snow sometimes. That taught me a lot of work ethic. And I remember even practicing golf, which was very important in my life, for hours on end in high school and college. I actually worked for the Registrar, which is the department in college that handles all classes and records and those types of things. I actually was able to schedule all of my classes when I wanted before anyone else and so I scheduled them literally the first couple classes in the morning every day so I’d be done before lunch. That allowed me to basically hit golf balls for three, four, or five hours and play golf every afternoon. I would just pound golf balls. That taught me work ethic.

The work ethic was there in periods. But I also noticed that sometimes I would have some lapses in that, whether it was in my job, maybe not go full effort, or from a fitness standpoint, I’d have ups and downs. I look back at those moments and I realized I left a lot on the table. There was a lot of stuff that I could have done differently or better or improved upon. Maybe I would be further ahead now than if I didn’t do that but I also am a “glass half full” guy and realize that it happened and I can now learn from it for the future and maybe help other people that haven’t been through that yet and give some guidance and insight into something that I stumbled with that could be important.

One of the lessons I uncovered I call the Toolbox of Knowledge. If you think about it, we acquire various knowledge through our own experiences all the time whether it’s through school, a job, relationships, etc. These situations are exactly where my metaphoric “toolbox” comes in handy.

As an example, imagine hiring someone because something’s wrong in your house. They say they can fix and promptly come over but there’s only one problem, they only arrive with one tool in hand.  Now, they could certainly get that job done, potentially. But if they don’t really know what the problem is, or didn’t expect it to exactly as they found it, one tool may not be enough and therefore they can’t possibly handle the task or it might end up being extremely challenging and corners might be cut.

Now imagine that same person showing up and having one or two or three big toolboxes, all different tools, all sizes, and different materials to help out in whatever challenge they approached. I’d bet money they can get the job done.

That’s how I want everyone to think about their life. Since we can’t change the past, let’s not focus on it. What’s happened has happened. So, I really want everyone to focus on going forward. Whether it’s your day job you have, whether it’s some side hustle, it could be something with your family, it could be your fitness and nutrition.

What are you going to do to fill up that next toolbox or the next one after that?

Think about your job today. Are you maximizing every once of the opportunity to learn? If you’re in sales, for instance, do you seek out advice from the top reps in the company to learn, have you sat with other managers to gain perspective on how they run their teams or are you talking with customer success teams to learn more about the customer’s needs.  These are small examples but they are the kind of things that can be done to help you gain additional knowledge and leverage that experience for your future.

The real question when you look in your “accountability mirror” is are you maximizing your opportunities to learn information that could be very useful for you many years down the road.

I take it from a fitness standpoint, right? You can certainly putter around each day; maybe you go for a walk. But maybe you don’t eat well, right? Maybe you’ve put on some weight; maybe your fitness is not there.

Are you acquiring the proper knowledge to help you get healthier and improve? Are you doing research to figure out if there is a better way that’s going to improve my longevity, my sleep, or my energy? Or are you just using the information you’ve gathered from the past and assuming it’s still correct?

That’s really what I want to challenge everyone that’s reading this to think about. What could your “toolbox” be next week, next month, or next year? Could you just fill it up a little bit more or could you fill up three toolboxes full?

When you’re carrying it into that next job, or that new gym you signed up, or maybe a new relationship you have to ask yourself what you are bringing to the table starting out and how are you going to grow to be a better person going forward. How are you going to try and taste new things and new experiences to build up that toolbox.

Try one thing next week. That’s it, one thing, and see what happens.  Reach out to a co-worker in a different department that works with your department from time to time. Ask them questions to learn about their day-to-day and be curious to know what things they know that could be valuable for your role, and vice versa.  If you feel you’ve gained weight, go search online for an hour about healthy foods and ways to structure your eating such as Intermittent Fasting. There are so many simple ways to gain more knowledge and learn from new experiences.

The hard part is to slip out of the warm comfortable bath and into an uncomfortable cold shower. However, I’ve learned if you do it in small doses you start to form the proper habits and harden your mind to do these things more often.

I want everyone to have that mindset. It’s a glass half full mindset, you’ve got to be positive in order to have the courage to shed the insecurities and seek out unknown places and conversations because those are the situations that make you a better human being both inside and out and allow you to carry that toolbox around and tackle any job in your path.

Dozen Months of Discovery in 2020

learning

It’s 2020 and the Dozen Months of Discovery have begun!

Part of the premise of the Just Get Started Podcast is to get out of your comfort zone and try to accomplish things far greater than you ever imagined. Whether it is changing your eating habits, a better fitness routine, starting a business, etc. At the micro-level, everything you do has to be “started” at some point but are we truly pushing ourselves outside our comfort zones as much as possible and learning new skills or knowledge that can become valuable. Or, maybe it doesn’t become something valuable but you can say you tried it because it was interesting at the time. That’s okay, too.

That, my friends, is the whole premise of the Dozen Months of Discovery.

12 months to have 12 new challenges or adventures. This could be anything from committing to a workout plan one month to learning how to play the piano another, learning a language, or detoxing from Social Media. Whatever it is you have to invest time into it and you have to practice but more than that you must create a different mindset and the focus on accomplishing the challenge must be present every day. We (and I certainly mean me) say over and over “I wish I could do….” Or “I wish I tried….”. As the old saying goes, “You can wish in one hand and shit in the other and see which one gets filled up first”. 

Stop wishing. Why not go out and do it? I know your answer. I don’t have time. It may actually take less than you think. Malcolm Gladwell famously wrote that you need about 10,000 hours to master a skill. But I’m not asking you to master a skill, I’m asking you to try and learn something new whether it be a new skill or just challenge yourself to stick to something for an extended period of time. So, how long would that take to try?

Well, someone already did that research for me and his name is Josh Kaufman. Now, Josh did a phenomenal Ted talk about this topic and, in short, concluded that to learn and be good at a new skill it would take about 20 hours. I highly recommend you watch the entire Ted Talk here – How to Learn Anything in 20 Hours – as it provides a lot more context.

Also, Podcast Guest (Episode 76) Scott Young and his book “Ultralearning” is a fantastic guidebook of some useful techniques and stories to speed up your learning and actually make it sticky.

So, the question I posed to myself a little while back and will pose to you right now is…How far did you advance yourself this past year? How much more could you have done that would have led to increased skill development, more fulfillment or joy in your life, new doors being open…all of it….How far did you push that needle? 

Get out of your comfort zone and try to make the next year your best year even. You certainly won’t get there by doing the same thing you are doing now. You must broaden your horizons and I think this is one way to do it.

So here’s the challenge.

Pick 12 new skills/challenges/topics you think would be cool or interesting or maybe something you always wanted to learn. If you can’t think of that many then ask your friends and family or post online and ask your larger community to throw out ideas.

Next, write them down and share with the world those 12 you are going to learn.

Here is my working list for 2020 (I may slip in something if I come across it during the year and swap out with one already on the list but that is still to be determined)

January – No Social Media for 30 Days

February – 1 Hour of Stretching / Mobility work every day

March – Learn Spanish

April – Learn the Ukelele 

May – No Sugar (Less than 20g a day)

June – Conduct an Interview a Day

July – Plastic Free Month (Don’t use single-use plastics)

August – Learn Adobe Illustrator

September – Run a Mile a Day (With 20 LB Weight Vest)

October – Charity Month (Donate 30 Hours of my time)

November – No Complaining 

December – Random Acts of Kindness Per Day

Finally, each month you need to pick a goal (if it is a learned skill) so you have something to reach for by the end of that month. If you don’t pick a goal you can’t conclude if you truly learned anything. Don’t make it too easy but I’d rather it be achievable than overly aggressive.

Now, start with the first one on the first day of the next month and do it. Learn by taking classes locally, watching videos online, syncing up with a friend skilled in that craft, whatever. Invest around 20 hours that month and see what you can accomplish. 

I’m starting this endeavor on January 1st, 2020. My first monthly challenge is to not launch one social media app (Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Twitter) for the entire month. I’ll document each journey prior to starting and the week after I finish each month. 

If you are down to join, let me know and we can hold each other accountable. If not, we’ll catch you for the next one and I’d love to hear what you are trying to do to challenge yourself and push beyond your comfort zone.

Let’s crush 2020!

Carpe Diem,

Brian

About Scott Young

I started writing this blog just before my 18th birthday, so in many ways, it has mirrored my own life as an adult. The blog started when I was very interested in behavior change, and you can see many articles about this obsession. Later I left for university and began considering socializing and productivity as topics to explore. Learning became an important topic, and eventually created the foundation for a full-time business I could run, selling courses to learners about the methods I’d uncovered. Finally, as I left school, the idea of continued self-mastery and career development interested me.Beyond writing, entrepreneurship and life philosophy, my interests include programming, travel, cooking and teaching myself anything I can.

Episode 38 features our first “Digital Nomad” on the Podcast in Entrepreneur Jinny Oh. Jinny is the Founder of WANDR and travels all over the world to explore the endless possibilities that are out there as well as continue her mission to grow her company WANDR. We get into some great discussions about how she has scaled her company, leadership, remote employees, and of course about traveling!

About Jinny Oh

Hi, I’m Jinny—an entrepreneur who’s lived, studied and traveled around the world. My passion for exploring led me to a digital nomad lifestyle, from which I built a multi-million dollar business in product design and strategy. From features like Forbes to speaking engagements, and as a startup advisor—I owe it all to the experiences I’ve had and the people I’ve met while working remote and traveling the world.

In 2016, I started WANDR to empower startup founders with better user experiences. Since then, we’ve launched over 250 brands and worked with several Fortune 500 companies to re-shape their product strategy. Below are some of the clients I’ve worked with.

I currently serve as an equity partner for Partner.lyTrendi and KaptionThis, which I’ve helped build, launch and/ or advised.

In October 2017, I found myself energized with a growing online audience. When my LinkedIn Post on “sacrifice as a founder” reached over 20 million views, it led to countless opportunities. I’ve since traveled nationally and globally for speaking engagements and podcast interviews on topics such as Design Innovation, Designing User Experiences, My Journey as an Entrepreneur, Life of an LinkedIn Influencer, and more!

I packed up for my first solo trip at sixteen years old. I’ve since traveled to over 40 countries, lived in 5 countries, and fluently speak 3 different languages. I travel to discover new cultures, and challenge my creativity along the way. Some of my favorite places include: Colombia, Greece, China, Iceland, Spain, and Indonesia.

OVERCAST

PODCHASER

Had a phenomenal conversation with Case Kenny on Episode 29 of the Just Get Started Podcast.

We get into an interesting conversation around his life and journey into growing his media company and we discuss the background of his Prsuit.com company and how using the thought around “perspective” is ideal for growing yourself and becoming fulfilled in life.  His consistency in putting out great content has helped him grow his audience to hundreds of thousands of readers and become a regular top 50 iTunes Podcast in just a few short months of starting it.

One of the things I enjoy about Case is how raw he is when speaking.  He believes what he says and isn’t afraid to share his opinions of the world and offer advice where he feels it could help others.  Putting yourself out there and being vulnerable can be difficult but once you build your confidence and understand that your voice can help motivate and inspire others it’s cool to see what can happen.  Enjoyed the chance to get to know Case a bit and know you all will enjoy this episode.

About Case Kenny:

Hi! My name is Case Kenny (@case.kenny) and I created the PRSUIT email to feed your soul..

With PRSUIT I share my no-BS perspective on all the things that make you human – your sense of self, confidence, optimism, mindfulness and so much more.

I call myself a “dudebroguy” because I’m just a guy who’s living his life. I’m not a coach, guru or more enlightened than the average person.

BUT I’m also a guy who knows that growth and fulfillment comes when you push yourself to be uncomfortable, try new things and live life from your heart.

With the email, I rely on my own life experiences to help you live your best life. That might include personal awkward stories, times I terribly embarrassed myself or silly jokes I love to tell that apparently aren’t that funny (*shrugs).

I do this to help you find your life’s truth – a truth that is so much more than living a normal, comfortable and expected life. Your truth is always pushing yourself to search for what lights you up inside — people, places, interests and passions.

Join me Mondays and Friday and you’ll find yourself saying to yourself…

PS: I also host a podcast by the same name. Check it out on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
