Key Takeaways
What are Trip, Anna, and Larry grateful for this year?
A vaccine is out! Things are looking pretty promising.
Trip is excited to get back to the “normal” fear.
Over 80% of people don’t want to go back to the way things were.
Trip was able to have dinner with his wife and kids. This is something he could have never done before!
Jerry Seinfeld talks a lot about creating longevity in your career.
What do success in life and your career look like? How do you go about finding these answers?
This pandemic has helped us refocus our priorities on relationships and the important people in our lives.
Success is about freedom and owning your time. However, there is a balance. If you have too little money, you don’t have freedom. And if you have too much money, you become trapped and lose your freedom.
How do you escape the rat race while still doing something meaningful with your life?
Larry knows people who would love to teach a class or speak on stage, and their employers say, “NO.” Yes, you make good money, but how free are you?
It doesn’t take as much money as you think it does to achieve comfort and freedom.
Anna catches Trip texting during the podcast. Sneaky sneaky!
When Anna started on this path to freedom 15 years ago, people thought she was crazy and the journey to achieve this vision was very lonely.
15 years ago, Trip was happy he didn’t have to wear a suit to his job in Silicon Valley.
Larry and Trip both remember the “casual Friday” days where you could wear what you wanted on a Friday.
The pandemic has brought people’s mortality into focus and it’s making people question what’s really making them happy.
Trip made the decision a few years back when he was in a horrible job to “stop being afraid.”
As we go into 2021, what makes you afraid? High-level: Stop Being Afraid. Stop pushing it off and stop waiting for permission.
People love to live in the fantasy of “what could be” and it makes people feel safe. But, why stop there? Why not make it a reality?
Keep putting one foot in front of the other.
