Four Cult-ural Trends You (Might) Have to Fight

One Idea to Change the (Entire?) Game
“For studying courage in textbooks doesn’t make you any more courageous than eating cow meat makes you bovine. By some mysterious mental mechanism, people fail to realize that the principal thing you can learn from a professor is how to be a professor—and the chief thing you can learn from, say, a life coach or inspirational speaker is how to become a life coach or inspirational speaker. So remember that the heroes of history were not classicists and library rats, those people who live vicariously in their texts. They were people of deeds and had to be endowed with the spirit of risk taking” –Nassim Taleb Why does the idea of "skin in the game" matter so much?  And how can we use this idea (and the others from Skin in the Game) to improve our own lives, and the lives of others?  Subscribe and let's jump into it!  This episode is brought to you by Audible!

Four Ways to Build and Upgrade Your Habits
Habits... How are they powerful? How are they dangerous? Intuitively, we know that your habits are the only things standing between you and everything you want in life. “All our life, so far as it has definite form, is but a mass of habits — practical, emotional, and intellectual — systematically organized for our weal or woe, and bearing us irresistibly toward our destiny, whatever the latter may be.” –William James But in practice, doing the work necessary to upgrade your habits isn’t easy. In fact, it might be one of the most difficult battles you’ll ever fight. The Power of Habit is one of the most important primers and science backed starting points for upgrading your habits. The book contains vital reminders: “Once you know a habit exists, you have the responsibility to change it . . . others have done so . . . That, in some ways, is the point of this book. Perhaps a sleep-walking murderer can plausibly argue that he wasn’t aware of his habit, and so he doesn’t bear responsibility for his crime, but almost all of the other patterns that exist in most people’s lives — how we eat and sleep and talk to our kids, how we unthinkingly spend our time, attention and money — those are habits that we know exist. And once you understand that habits can change, you have the freedom and the responsibility to remake them. Once you understand that habits can be rebuilt, the power of habit becomes easier to grasp and the only option left is to get to work.” ― Charles Duhigg,The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business We’ve found four principals to help effectively build and upgrade habits. Tune in to today’s episode where we’ll cover all four and how to apply them! This episode is brought to you by Audible!

The 10 Elon Musk Backstories You Need to Know
This exciting episode jumps into one of the unknown backstories of someone famous that everyone THINKS they know. His story perfectly illustrates what accelerated learning is all about, why it matters, and how you can start to speed up your own learning today. This is the Story about an immigrant who taught himself to live on $2 a day, to remove his fear of poverty, who was so shy that when he was applying for a job, he stopped into the lobby and didn’t talk to anyone… and just walked out. He would then learn to crush the job, and future ones, and go on to get his first investment… a wad of $5,000 bills from a guy in his bathrobe, then raised more money by telling investors that he’d, "commit seppuku rather than fail" (that’s the Japanese word for suicide). That guy was… Elon Musk. Cliche example, but one everyone knows… or do they? In this episode, we jump into 10 unknown backstories or takeaways from Elon Musk's life: How he removed his fear of poverty About learning to use a first principles approach to challenges  On taking intelligent risks Doing things before you’re “ready” Knowing when to concede, form alliances, and when to let things go Why friends and family matter When to commit and invest yourself fully into one thing until it’s successful How to form lifelong friendships based on shared philosophies, actions, loyalty, trust, and respect On narcissistic wounds How to take full agency over our lives Listen to the full episode of The Mission Daily for the full story!

7 Keys to Fellowship
“One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.” — Elbert Hubbard In this episode, we cover 7 keys to friendship, teams, culture, and fellowship. First, what is "fellowship"?  Fellowship goes past superficial acquaintances and fake friends into the realm of empowering relationships where both people are improved as a result of collaborating together. Why? Because by mastering these things, you can do more with less, you can find your purpose, meaning, and mission. Plus, and perhaps most importantly, if you learn these keys, you and your friends will be in a position to use technology to serve yourselves and others, instead of being used by it. The best definition of technology I’ve heard is, “Doing more with less.” These 7 keys will help you and those you care about, “do more with less”. The average friendship or workplace are anti-technological. They are usually steeped in physical and mental sickness. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Fostering healthy teams and fellowship is possible with the right habits and squad goals 🙂 So never fear. The seven keys of fellowship are here!

Secrets Exist. Here's How To Find Them.
In this episode, we make a case that: Secrets exist. Many of them are closer to you than you might think, and by finding them (even small ones), you can materially improve your life.  One of the best places to find secrets is by studying, "the story behind the story" of great people and victories.  We cover how to get started looking for secrets there, and why this process is hidden and rarely discussed.  Most of the media isn’t focused on telling you HOW great achievements were won. In fact, 95% of media outlets, non-fiction writing, and news about great achievements and entrepreneurs glosses over, or completely ignores, how great achievements were won. Secrets exist. Subscribe, tune in, and let's figure out where the secrets are in your own life and how you can capitalize on them. This episode is brought to you by Audible!

How To Supercharge Your Creativity
Creativity... What is it? Merriam Webster says its, "the ability to create OR the quality of being creative." But we're not so sure this definition is any bit helpful or insightful... We believe creativity is, “the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work.” Creativity is the one thing that can not (and arguably will never) be replicated by machines. It’s the potential source and solution to everything and all problems. In today's episode, we highlight ideas and strategies to supercharge creativity in everyday life.  Today's episode is brought to you by Audible!
