Talking with Titans

12/12/2016 at 09:15 Leave a comment

A long drive requires a good podcast and I was glad to have this one – Tony Robbins The Tools of Titans – a long chat with Tim Ferriss reveals the tactics, routines and habits of great people based on his latest book is Tools of Titans.

Couple of take aways I plan on using moving forward:

  • Tony talks about improving the questions you ask. Some of Tim’s:
    • What’s the worst that can happen?
    • What are the assumptions and “stories” I tell myself and how can I break them?
    • From Peter Thiel – What can you do to make your 10x plans work in 6 months? Hint: Don’t tell him it’s impossible.
    • Do the opposite of what you’ve been doing – What change can I make over the next 24-48 hours to make progress?
  • Success without fulfilment doesn’t satisfy
  • Get 8-10 hours of sleep every night
  • Red teaming – bring together a section of your staff – or other staff to disrupt and question your plans/company
  • Future plan no more than 6-12 months – focus on values clarification. Allows for more flexibility with opportunities, experimentation and see what doors open and people come my way
