Just started listening recently and I was intrigued by the 3 question “naval gazing” (as David called it) that Mike described. I have one suggestion. Instead of asking yourself “What should I start doing” and “What should I stop doing”, you could consider asking “What do I want to start doing”. This subtle word changes how I think about what I’m doing. I’ve tried to eliminate the word “should” from my vocabulary, when talking to myself or when speaking for others. No one else wants to hear it said to them, why “should” I say it to myself?
Second thought: David talked about “being that guy who does electrical” and having trouble letting it go even though mathematically it made sense for him to pay someone to do it. I had this same though process, because my dad grew up during the depression, so you always did what you could on your own. My guilt disappeared when I read a statement in the Number One Women’s Detective Agency by Andrew McCall Smith.
When you have money, you owe it to society to employ people to do things for you.
This suddenly made me feel like I was helping people rather than burdening people when I hired them, even if it was to clean my toilet. I’m helping the economy too!
Great show guys,
