Episode 8: Dr David Sweet - Ikigai and Arete (Pursuit of excellence)
Play • 53 min

In this episode with renaissance man, Dr. David Sweet, we talk Shakespeare, Stoicism, the parable of the talents and the evils of the snooze button.

With the pursuit of excellence in all things as the essence of his Ikigai,  David surprises me with a thoughtful moment of connection and celebration and shares his perspective on "Consistent persistency".  

You will also learn about how to structure a THREE HOUR (I know, right?) morning routine, the importance of mentors, and how it doesn't actually take athleticism to be a runner.  He also offers some great advice on how to drive in fog as a job seeker and I embarrass him by saying what a positive impact he has had on my life and in the last year especially.  

Hope you enjoy listening to this and please go out and tell someone what they did to have an impact in your life.
