What I learned from reading Ralph Lauren: The Man Behind the Mystique by Jeffrey Trachtenberg.This episode is brought to you by: Tiny: Tiny is the easiest way to sell your business. Quick and straightforward exits for Founders.----Follow one of my favorite podcasts Invest Like The Best and listen to episode 311 John Fio — Creating Magic for Consumers, episode 307 Jeremiah Lowin: Explaining the New AI Paradigm, and episode 293 The Business of Gaming. [2:01] When I lumped him together with a handful of other designers during casual conversation, he snapped: “Don't put me with those designers. My business is not compared to anybody else's."[3:00] In practice Ralph Lauren is a tough, intensely ambitious businessman.[3:00] Ralph has always possessed immense self-confidence; it is central to his character, an asset as valuable as his sense of color, fabric, style.[4:00] Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life by Justine Picardie. (Founders #199)[7:00] Few outsiders understood fully how lucrative the licensing business had become. Ralph would have been a successful designer in his own right. However, he would never have qualified as one of the world's richest men without licensees willing to pay him 5 to 7 percent of sales.[7:00] His privately held fashion empire was on the brink of bankruptcy. Geffen surmised that the company should be transformed from a manufacturing firm to a design, marketing, and licensing company. "You guys stink at manufacturing," he said. "You need to get out of that business." Instead, Geffen continued, the company needed to focus on what it really knew: how to design and market the Calvin Klein brand name. — The Operator: David Geffen Builds, Buys, and Sells The New Hollywood by Tom King[14:00] When my customers come to me, they like to cross the threshold of some magic place; they feel a satisfaction that is perhaps a trace vulgar but that delights them: they are privileged characters who are incorporated into our legend. For them this is a far greater pleasure than ordering another suit.” —Coco Chanel, 1935[16:00] What he lacked in experience he compensated it for an energy and enthusiasm.[17:00] Differentiation is survival. — Jeff Bezos Jeff Bezos' Shareholder Letters (Founders #282)[19:00] Mediocrity is always invisible until passion shows up and exposes it.[22:00] From the beginning I've been aware of the need to sell everybody. — Becoming Trader Joe: How I Did Business My Way and Still Beat the Big Guys by Joe Coulombe. (Founders #188)[26:00] Difference for the sake of it. In everything. Because it must be better. From the moment the idea strikes, to the running of the business. Difference, and retention of total control. — Against The Odds: An Autobiography by James Dyson (Founders #200)[28:00] Made in Japan: Akio Morita and Sony by Akio Morita. (Founders #102)[32:00] Intransigence is my only weapon. — Charles de Gaulle by Julian Jackson. (Founders #224)[41:00] It's torture being a partner to somebody you don't want to be a partner with.[45:00] On a Thursday night he wins an award for best men's wear designer. The next day he could not meet his payroll.[49:00] When bills come due, only cash is legal tender. Don't leave home without it. — The Essays of Warren Buffett by Warren Buffett and Lawrence Cunningham. (Founders #227)[54:00] You can make a lot of different mistakes and still recover if you run an efficient operation. Or you can be brilliant and still go out of business if you're too inefficient. — Sam Walton: Made In America by Sam Walton.[55:00] The thing that set Ralph apart was his single-mindedness of purpose. Everybody else moved from place to place, from trend to trend. He wasn't trendy. He stayed with it. It's the single most important thing about him. To this day there are people walking around saying Ralph Lauren isn't that special, I could have done it. It's the weirdest thing. They couldn't be more wrong. Ralph is the most special guy in the apparel business.[55:00] Graham Duncan on the Tim Ferriss Show----Subscribe to listen to Founders Premium — Subscribers ask me questions directly which I answer in Ask Me Anything (AMA) episodes ----Join my free email newsletter to get my top 10 highlights from every book----I use Readwise to organize and remember everything I read.

On this day in 1959, a hero of the Second World War, Charles de Gaulle, became President of France. What followed was a decade of real turbulence, ultimately leading to his resignation a decade later in 1969. Upon leaving, De Gaulle most unexpectedly made for Ireland. While we're used to foreign Presidents visiting for a day or two, De Gaulle spent a remarkable six weeks in Ireland, walking the beach, attending mass and visiting the sights. On what was to be his first and only visit, the fallen leader nonetheless captivated the Irish people, who encountered him as a Private Citizen.

Sur la valeur guerrière je n'ai pas besoin d'appuyer, ses blessures, le reste de ses citations se passent de commentaires. J'insiste sur les mérites hors pair de ce soldat qui développe par un travail constant les qualités qu'il a conscience de posséder. Il sait d'ailleurs les faire apprécier avec discrétion, gardant en toutes circonstances une attitude réservée, empreinte d'une correction toute militaire. Beau soldat, ce sera un beau chef, qu'il y a intérêt pour le bien de son armée et de toute l'armée à pousser rapidement aux hautes situations où il donnera sa pleine mesure et ne décevra pas."2020 marquera un triple anniversaire : les 130 ans de la naissance de Charles de Gaulle, les 50 ans de sa disparition et les 80 ans de l'appel du 18 juin. Pour nous y préparer, c'est le citoyen d'un pays avec lequel le général a entretenu des rapports pour le moins contrastés, la Grande Bretagne. Professeur Julian Jackson, vous enseignez à Queen Mary, University of London, vous êtesun spécialiste de l'histoire de la France au XXe siècle. On vous doit notamment, « La France sous l'occupation 1940-1944 » aux éditions Flammarion et vouspubliez aux éditions du Seuil « De Gaulle.

Courageux, déterminé, mais aussi colérique et ingrat, Charles de Gaulle parait un homme pétri de contradictions : « un soldat qui passa le plus clair de sa carrière à critiquer l'armée ; un conservateur qui s'exprimait souvent comme un révolutionnaire ; un homme de passion incapable, ou presque, d'exprimer des émotions » Si le général de Gaulle s'affirmait guidé par « une certaine idée de la France », vous montrez que cette idée était sujette à d'importantes variations selon une dialectique toute bergsonienne qui cherche « à établir l'importance de l'intuition par rapport à l'intelligence analytique, de l'élan vital contre la doctrine figée ».Vous pouvez consulter notre politique de confidentialité sur https://art19.com/privacy ainsi que la notice de confidentialité de la Californie sur https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Les relations entre la France et l'Orient remontent à plus d'un millénaire, mais c'est au XVIIIème siècle qu'elles se trouvent pour la première fois théorisées. La campagne d'Egypte, l'orientalisme au XIXème siècle, la protection des chrétiens d'Orient, l'expérience mandataire et la reconfiguration du Levant au sortir de la Seconde guerre mondiale permettent de saisir la représentation plurielle de l'Orient en France. Jean-François Figeac aborde également l'influence de l'opinion publique française sur la conduite de sa politique étrangère et montre comment la traditionnelle question d'Orient, peu à peu remplacée par le concept de politique arabe, est aussi un miroir des préoccupations hexagonales.

That may be true on its face, but it doesn't mean that we shouldn't strive to be as indispensable as possible while we are here.  De Gaulle certainly lived to that ideal.     J.F. Roxburgh, the first headmaster of the Stowe School, endeavored to make the boys he taught into men of good character and moral courage who would be “acceptable at a dance and invaluable in a shipwreck.” That is, perhaps, the best description of an “indispensable man” that I have been able to find.     We should strive to be the kind of men who exhibit strong minds and strong bodies.  The kind of men who are equally well prepared for a black tie dinner or a stressful and rapidly evolving event.    Every day, we should remember examples from the past who lived to that ideal - Marcus Aurelias, Tecumseh, George Washington.  We become indispensable by becoming virtuous men, driven by ideals and buoyed by strong minds and strong bodies.    Remember: “Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. ” — Tecumseh   Until Monday…Out of role!

What I learned from reading Paul Graham's essays.Support Founders' sponsors: Tiny: The easiest way to sell your business. Quick and straightforward exits for Founders. Capital: Banking built for Founders. Raise, hold, spend, and send—all in one place. Tegus is a search engine for business knowledge that's used by Founders, investors, and executives. Subscribe to listen to Founders Daily (my new daily podcast)[4:52] My father told me I could be whatever I wanted when I grew up, so long as I enjoyed it.[5:49] Do what you love doesn't mean, do what you would like to do most this second.[7:41] To be happy I think you have to be doing something you not only enjoy, but admire. You have to be able to say, at the end, wow, that's pretty cool.[8:00] You should not worry about prestige. This is easy advice to give. It's hard to follow.[10:22] You have to make a conscious effort to keep your ideas about what you want from being contaminated by what seems possible.[12:18] Whichever route you take, expect a struggle. Finding work you love is very difficult. Most people fail.[16:46] How To Do What You Love by Paul Graham [16:34] What Doesn't Seem Like Work by Paul Graham [17:16] If something that seems like work to other people doesn't seem like work to you, that's something you're well suited for.[17:42] Michael Jordan said what looked like hard work to others was play to him. Michael Jordan: The Life by Roland Lazenby. (Founders #212) and Driven From Within by Michael Jordan and Mark Vancil. (Founders #213)[20:53] How Not to Die by Paul Graham [23:00] All that matters is to survive. The rest is just words. — Charles de Gaulle by Julian Jackson (Founders #224)[24:49] You have to assume that running a startup can be demoralizing. That is certainly true. I've been there, and that's why I've never done another startup.[27:31] If a startup succeeds, you get millions of dollars, and you don't get that kind of money just by asking for it. You have to assume it takes some amount of pain.[28:17] So I'll tell you now: bad shit is coming. It always is in a startup. The odds of getting from launch to liquidity without some kind of disaster happening are one in a thousand.So don't get demoralized. When the disaster strikes, just say to yourself, ok, this was what Paul was talking about. What did he say to do? Oh, yeah. Don't give up.[28:45] Why to Start a Startup in a Bad Economy by Paul Graham [30:23] If we've learned one thing from funding so many startups, it's that they succeed or fail based on the qualities of the founders.[31:15] If you're worried about threats to the survival of your company, don't look for them in the news. Look in the mirror.[34:10] The cheaper your company is to operate, the harder it is to kill.[35:43] Relentlessly Resourceful by Paul Graham [35:43] I finally got being a good startup founder down to two words: relentlessly resourceful.[37:20] If I were running a startup, this would be the phrase I'd tape to the mirror. "Make something people want" is the destination, but "Be relentlessly resourceful" is how you get there.[37:40] The Anatomy of Determination by Paul Graham [37:45] David's Notes: A Conversation with Paul Graham[39:50] After a while determination starts to look like talent.[42:12] Ambitious people are rare, so if everyone is mixed together randomly, as they tend to be early in people's lives, then the ambitious ones won't have many ambitious peers. When you take people like this and put them together with other ambitious people, they bloom like dying plants given water. Probably most ambitious people are starved for the sort of encouragement they'd get from ambitious peers, whatever their age.[43:21] One of the best ways to help a society generally is to create events and institutions that bring ambitious people together. (Founders Podcast Conference?)[45:21] What Startups Are Really Like by Paul Graham [49:00] The Entire History of Silicon Valley by John Coogan[49:50] Meet You In Hell: Andrew Carnegie Henry Clay Frick, and the Bitter Partnership That Transformed America by Les Standiford. (Founders #73)[55:08] You need persistence because everything takes longer than you expect. A lot of people (founders) were surprised by that.[57:18] Estee Lauder was a master at doing things that don't scale. Estée Lauder: A Success Storyby Estée Lauder. (Founders #217)[58:45] What makes companies fail most of the time is poor execution by the founders. A lot of times founders are worried about competition. YC has founded 1900+ companies. 1 was killed by competitors. You have the same protection against competitors that light aircraft have against crashing into other light aircraft. Do you know what the protection is? Space is large.[1:01:00] Paul on what he would do if he was strating a company today: If I were a 22 year starting a startup I would certainly apply to YC. Which is not that surprising, since it was designed to be what I wish I'd had when I did start one. But (assuming I got in) I would not get sucked into raising a huge amount on Demo Day.I would raise maybe $500k, keep the company small for the first year, work closely with users to make something amazing, and otherwise stay off SV's radar.Ideally I'd get to profitability on that initial $500k. Later I could raise more, if I felt like it. Or not. But it would be on my terms.At every point in the company's growth, I'd keep the company as small as I could. I'd always want people to be surprised how few employees we had. Fewer employees = lower costs, and less need to turn into a manager.When I say small, I mean small in employees, not revenues.[1:05:07] Against The Odds: An Autobiography by James Dyson (Founders #200)[1:07:00] A Word To The Resourceful by Paul Graham [1:08:07] We found the startups that did best were the ones with the sort of founders about whom we'd say "they can take care of themselves." The startups that do best are fire-and-forget in the sense that all you have to do is give them a lead, and they'll close it, whatever type of lead it is.[1:09:00] Understanding all the implications of what someone tells you is a subset of resourcefulness. It's conversational resourcefulness.[1:11:00] Do Things That Don't Scale by Paul Graham [1:11:00] Startups take off because the founders make them take off.[1:16:00] The question to ask about an early stage startup is not "is this company taking over the world?" but "how big could this company get if the founders did the right things?" And the right things often seem both laborious and inconsequential at the time.[1:16:00] Hard Drive: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire by James Wallace and Jim Erickson (Founders #140)[1:21:00] The world is complicated. It is noisy. We are not going to get a chance to get people to remember much about us. No company is. So we have to be really clear about what we want them to know about us. —Steve Jobs[1:22:00] Any strategy that omits the effort is suspect.[1:23:00] The need to do something unscalably laborious to get started is so nearly universal that it might be a good idea to stop thinking of startup ideas as scalars. Instead we should try thinking of them as pairs of what you're going to build, plus the unscalable thing(s) you're going to do initially to get the company going.Now that there are two components you can try to be imaginative about the second as well as the first.

Crisis de los misiles de 1962: Los ojos y oídos de Francia en Cuba

Este viernes 14 de octubre se cumplen 60 años desde la crisis de los misiles de Cuba. Dos intensas semanas en las que el Caribe y el mundo pasaron al borde de la guerra nuclear. RFI los lleva a explorar los archivos diplomáticos franceses para conocer el importante papel que jugó Francia en este intenso episodio. "Uno cree que los diplomáticos son espías. No, su trabajo consiste en contar lo que ven. En este caso, es verdad que, desde el mes de agosto de 1962, la embajada de Francia en Cuba se dio cuenta que pasaban cosas”, explica Jean Mendelson, ex embajador francés en Cuba. Un puesto que ocupó 20 años después de aquellas tensas semanas de octubre del 62, cuando el mundo estuvo al borde de la catástrofe y todas las miradas se posaron sobre la isla y los misiles soviéticos que los estadounidenses descubrieron ahí.  Hoy en día, Mendelson es responsable de los archivos de la diplomacia francesa. Es uno de los guardianes de los millones de telegramas que Francia recibió a lo largo de su historia, como aquel enviado desde La Habana el 18 de agosto de 1962. En él se lee: "Grupos importantes de jóvenes de entre 20 y 30 años han desembarcado de buques rusos en Mariel y Bahía-Honda. Se estima, de manera secreta, que hay por lo mínimo 4.000 personas de origen eslavo o noreuropeo". "Un suboficial francés, regresando de Pinar del Río hacia la Habana, después de un fin de semana vio jóvenes rubios, de piel blanca,  cargando bolsas, equipamiento militar, entonces informó". Tras realizar algunas verificaciones, el embajador notificó a París y la información viajó a Washington, donde el presidente John F. Kennedy, aliado del gobierno francés en la guerra fría, tenía sospechas de que algo tramaban los soviéticos en Cuba. Lo que vio el suboficial era sin duda parte de la ahora famosa operación Anádir. "Francia confirmó las sospechas serias que tenían los norteamericanos y por supuesto a partir de este momento la alianza fue fundamental”, recalca Jean Mendelson. “La crisis de los misiles fue en realidad mil veces más dramático de lo que se creía. Los estadounidenses estimaban unos 10.000 soldados soviéticos en Cuba. En realidad, había 30.000. Se dieron cuenta que había armas nucleares tácticas en la isla: Jruschov colocó misiles nucleares dentro de los submarinos que se supone asistían a los portacontenedores cargados de misiles", detalla Vincent Touze, historiador y especialista de la crisis de los misiles de Cuba. Apoyo francés Kennedy decidió evitar un ataque frontal con Fidel Castro y la Unión Soviética y optó por el bloqueo aéreo naval de la isla. El anuncio lo hizo el 22 de octubre de 1962 en un discurso a la nación. “Horas antes había advertido a sus aliados. Envió a un excanciller, Dean Acheson, para informar al general Charles De Gaulle. Su reacción acabó marcando la historia de la alianza entre Francia y Estados Unidos. La Casa Blanca temía que De Gaulle desaprobara, porque él reivindicaba cierta independencia frente a Washington. Pero de inmediato, incluso antes de que Dean Acheson le mostrara imágenes de la presencia de misiles en Cuba, De Gaulle ofreció el respaldo de Francia a Estados Unidos, le dio su total apoyo", cuenta Touze. Lea también el análisis de Mariano Aguirre: "La crisis de los misiles de Cuba en 1962: la verdadera historia detrás de la leyenda" A finales de octubre, Estados Unidos y la Unión Soviética acordaron desmantelar los misiles. A raíz de la crisis, deciden también crear el famoso teléfono rojo, que sigue hasta la fecha conectando Washington y Moscú.   Los archivos diplomáticos que Francia conserva indican que el general Charles de Gaulle quedó insatisfecho con la manera cómo Kennedy manejó la situación. "Como país con el arma nuclear, es delicado involucrar a aliados de forma unilateral", dice el exembajador en Cuba. "Hay una carta de De Gaulle, dirigida al primer ministro británico Harold Macmillan en la época. Decía: 'Ni usted ni nosotros hemos sido consultados por Estados Unidos. Un buen aliado hubiera tenido no solo que informar sino también consultar'". El espía que surgió de Francia Otro aspecto que sin duda dejó mal sabor a los franceses fue el rumbo que tomó de uno de sus informantes, un hombre llamado Philippe Thyraud de Vosjoli, que viajaba con frecuencia a Cuba. "Era el representante oficial de los servicios secretos franceses (SDECE) en Washington, con título de vicecónsul y nombrado con el acuerdo de la CIA", detalla Mendelson. "Ese personaje no reportaba a los franceses, sino a los americanos. Era un espía francés, doble agente de los americanos, o sea un traidor". Convocado por París en 1963, Vosjoli decide no volver nunca y mantenerse refugiado en Estados Unidos. Según escribió años después, regresar a Francia hubiera sido una muerte segura. Falleció en Washington en el 2000. ¿Cuba llevó a París y Washington al divorcio? La historia del espía francés de la CIA en Cuba dio mucho de qué hablar, pero fue un incidente menor. No fue lo que realmente fragilizó la relación entre gobiernos francés y estadounidense. "La consecuencia de esta crisis es paradójica. El propio De Gaulle se da cuenta que el mundo estuvo al borde de una guerra nuclear, que Europa casi se vuelve víctima de un conflicto nuclear en su suelo, no en suelo estadounidense o soviético", destaca el historiador Vincent Touze. "Por eso, en 1963, pronuncia un discurso antiamericano en el cual opta por una defensa nuclear francesa independiente. Acaba retirando a Francia de la OTAN unos años después”. ¿Cuba llevó a París y Washington al divorcio? En todo caso este episodio de alta tensión inauguró un nuevo capítulo en la defensa francesa. En marzo de 1966 Charles De Gaulle le notificó al relevo de Kennedy, el presidente Lyndon Johnson, su intención de salir del Comando Integral de la OTAN. Francia no se volverá a incorporar sino hasta el 2007.

Deutsch-französische Gipfeltreffen – heute eine Selbstverständlichkeit, doch 1962 eine Sensation. Jahrhundertelang hatte kein französisches Staatsoberhaupt Deutschland besucht. Auch Präsident Charles de Gaulle lässt sich nach seinem Amtsantritt drei Jahre Zeit – zu groß sind das Misstrauen und die Befindlichkeiten in weiten Teilen der französischen Bevölkerung. Doch als er dann kommt, im September 1962, nimmt er sich Zeit: Fast eine Woche dauert seine Tour durch die Bundesrepublik. Sieben Städte in sechs Tagen. Entsprechend groß wird das Ereignis gefeiert. Im zweiten Teil des Audios, etwa ab Minute 26, hören wir de Gaulles Rede in deutscher Sprache im Bonner Hofgarten. Doch die Berichterstattung beginnt schon mit seiner Ankunft am Köln-Bonner Flughafen und dem Empfang durch Staatspräsident Heinrich Lübke. Alles live im Radio übertragen und kommentiert. Wo immer Charles de Gaulle hinkommt, sind die Plätze voll, so auch im Bonner Hofgarten am 5.9., dem ersten Tag nach der Ankunft. De Gaulle spricht Deutsch – und das frei, ohne Notizen.

What does this 1969 film based upon Joseph Kessel's 1943 novel of the same name, tell us about the moral stresses involved in being operatives in the French Resistance during Nazi occupation? How does it illustrate the psychological, emotional and moral costs involved in making mortal choices in service of protecting that resistance effort? How does the film use the fate of resistance leader Mathilde to illustrate the utilitarian strategic decisions that had to be made when members were arrested and coerced for information? How does it illustrate the moral harm involved in killing human beings ‘up close'? How did the contemporary political climate in late 60s France influence the reception of this film? Did the film lionize Charles De-Gaulle as some critics maintained?

Parlons d'Histoire by La Libre

« Non, la guerre n'est pas terminée, il faut résister à l'occupant allemand. » Tel est, en résumé, le message radio lancé aux Français par le Général de Gaulle depuis Londres. C'était le 18 juin 1940, sur les ondes de la BBC. Considéré comme l'acte fondateur de la résistance française, ce discours – passé presque inaperçu au moment de sa diffusion - n'aurait pas eu lieu sans l'appui du premier ministre britannique, Winston Churchill. Parlons d'Histoire revient sur « l'appel du 18 juin », le contenu de cette déclaration, son contexte historique, politique et militaire, et les conséquences mondiales du refus de la défaite française. Nous évoquerons aussi la personnalité de son auteur, le Général Charles de Gaulle. Pour évoquer l'appel du 18 juin et le Général de Gaulle, La Libre reçoit Valérie Rosoux, Directrice de recherche au FNRS, professeure à l'UCLouvain et autrice du livre « La mémoire du Général de Gaulle », ainsi qu'Alain Colignon, historien aux Archives de l'État et spécialiste de la seconde guerre mondiale.

A podcast to answer all your questions about productivity, time management, self-development and goal planning. My name is Carl Pullein and I am your host for this show. I received an interesting question the other week about how to love the work that you do. Now, this was sparked from an article I wrote where I pointed out if you really hate the work that you are doing and dread Mondays, then perhaps you need to reconsider your career options.  For those of us past the age of 45, you will have likely come to the conclusion that life is not just short, but brutally short. By 45 you're about halfway through your life and all those goals, ambitions and experiences you said you would do one day suddenly seem to fade into long lost opportunities.  And life being so short, why would you want to subject yourself to 35 years of misery spending the majority of your prime years doing something that does not bring you any pleasure or satisfaction. it just does not make any sense.  So that brings us back to the question, how do you love what you do? That is what I will try and answer today and hopefully give you some ideas about how to change a career that no longer brings you joy or any satisfaction.  So, let me now hand you over to the Mystery Podcast Voice for this week's question.  This week's question comes from Phil. Phil asks, recently I read an article on your blog that said that if you hate what you do you should change your career. I know that sounds like the obvious answer, but what if you can't change your job for whatever reason, how can you change the way you think about your job?  Hi Phil, thank you for your question (and for reading my blog)  Now before we get into the heart of this question, I should point out the two versions of this quote or expression: “love what you do” and “do what you love”. One is possible for all of us, the other is often unrealistic. The unrealistic one is “do what you love”. Now that does not mean it is impossible. I was recently sat next to a pilot on my flight back to Korea and he was telling me he chose to become a pilot because since he was a little boy, he'd been fascinated with all things to do with flying. He was well into his fifties and still loved flying.  So, while doing what you love is often unrealistic, it is certainly not impossible. But if what you love doing is sitting on the sofa watching movies every night while eating ice cream, it's likely you will struggle to find a career that will support you. (Although perhaps becoming a movie critic for a news media company might be a good path to follow.) These days, however, doing what you love does have more doors that can be opened. For instance, when I was teaching English, I did have a number of students whose dream job was to become a travel writer. With sites like Medium and SubStack, there are now opportunities to turn your passion for a particular activity into a side project, that over time could become your full-time work. And of course, YouTube has opened up possibilities for people to record and publish their take on any number of topics.  But what about the second one. “Love what you do”? Now this one is an interesting one. I love writing, I also love recording and producing videos. But, I do not like the admin that comes from running my own business. If I were to spend all my working time writing and recording, it would be ‘perfect'. Sadly, life gets in the way. We still have to do admin. I still need to do my expenses and my taxes. I hate doing that kind of work. But it has to be done.  Now a question that has helped me in the past with doing the things I do not like doing is “what would happen if I stopped doing the work I did not enjoy?” Well, if I don't do my expenses and my taxes, it would not be long before the tax authorities would be knocking at my door. There is also the other side to this, in that neglecting an important part of life (admin) would leave me feeling unfulfilled. Part of my personal identity is that I am organised and know what's going on in my life. So, not doing an essential part of my work would leave me feeling guilty and unhappy with myself.  So, I do my expenses, taxes and admin.  However, there is something you can do here. Turn doing the work you don't like into a competition with yourself. For instance, if you hate clearing your email's inbox, time yourself. See how fast you can process 100 emails. (To help you here, I recently cleared 120 emails from my inbox while sitting at Paris's Charles De Gaulle airport in 33 minutes. (Beat that!) I was a little disappointed, though, I wanted to do it in less than 30 mins.  Now it's rare I would have 100+ emails in my inbox, I average around 80 emails in a morning when I start the day. But next time I get 100+, I will beat that 30 minutes.  What's happening here is you are taking the emphasis off the boring part of the process—deciding what an email is and what, if anything, you need to do with it—to something completely different—how fast can you clear your inbox? Now the work I don't like doing, I've turned it into a project to find the most efficient way to complete my expenses. I've created my own spreadsheet and I look for ways to automate it as much as I possibly can. My expenses are not the typical lunch or dinner receipts. Most of my expenses are monthly subscriptions for services I use such as iCloud, website hosting and such like. these are recurring, so I've managed to set up a system where I can duplicate these payments automatically in my spreadsheet and then the spreadsheet will do the currency conversion automatically. I loved coming up with that idea.  What about a whole job you don't like doing. Well, first of all, do you hate all aspects of your work? If so, you really do need to stop and ask yourself what you would like to do. If you hate everything about the work you do, then really the best option is to leave that career altogether and find a different one.  But, in my experience, hating everything about your work is very rare. I remember my first job was cleaning the changing rooms in a health club. Not the most pleasant of jobs, but I did find it fascinating seeing the members working out and being able to judge what was needed if you were to be fit and healthy all your life.  I remember one member, who must have been in his seventies, with a body of a Greek god. Not an ounce of visible fat and not overly muscular. I think people would describe him as looking very athletic. I watched his workout routines every day. I noticed he didn't lift particularly heavy weights at all. His routine was to start on the running machine for twenty minutes or so, then he spent twenty minutes lifting free weights (not machines) followed by around ten minutes stretching and finally he would do lengths in the pool for around twenty minutes.  I remember asking him one day how he stayed in such good shape and he told me he's been working out every day in some way or another since he was at school. Almost thirty years later I am still inspired by that gentleman.  Another job I did in my early working life was as bar staff in a local pub in England. Being on your feet for six to eight hours a day and coming home stinking of cigarettes and alcohol was not pleasant. But the job itself taught me how to communicate with people. I am not by nature a people person. But working in the bar, taught me to communicate and I met some incredibly interesting people.  Sure, there were days when I got soaked in beer when changing a barrel, I also cut my fingers many times when cutting lemons and many broken glasses. But it was an experience I will never forget and I know how to pull the perfect pint of bitter and Guinness. What a skill to learn.  There are always parts of a job you will not like. You need to identify these areas and ask yourself how you could learn to make them less unpleasant. When I worked in a law firm, I hated dealing with angry clients. But I realised that learning to handle upset customers (clients) was always going to be a key skill in life. So, I offered to help my colleagues if they ever had an upset client. I made it an objective to master the art of handling upset clients. Not sure if I ever did master it, but I no longer fear it.  But if you really are at a loss with your career choice and feel it impossible to change direction now. Stop. There's absolutely no reason why you cannot go back to school and learn a new vocation. There are so many opportunities now to take online courses reasonably cheaply. You can even do a Masters degree online today.  The first step, though, is to give yourself some time to think about what you would like to do. Perhaps do some reading and research. Discover where your passions are now. That's your starting point. Then do the research. From there, you will soon find what the next step will be.  There you go, Phil. I hope that has gone some way to explaining what you can do to turn around an unhappy career choice. You have some amazing opportunities today, the only thing you need to do is to take the first step and decide what you want to do.  Thank you for your question, and thank you to you too for listing.  It just remains for me now to wish you all a very very productive week.

We Didn't Start the Fire: The History Podcast

"The General." "The Great Asparagus." "A man with the most oversized personality." Charles de Gaulle was President of France from 1959-69, and his near-mythological status had been building up for decades before then. His debut appearance in Billy's song is because of his critical involvement in the May 1958 Crisis, which saw Algerian Nationalists rise up and, after nearly 130 years of French colonisation, fight for freedom. Dr Arthur Asseraf is an expert in modern France and North Africa, and grew up in France well aware of the near-mythological status that de Gaulle still adopts today.
