OutliersOutliers Full Book Introduction In every time period, there exist some "outliers" who possess exceptional abilities and achieve extraordinary feats. It is commonly believed that their success is attributed to personal factors, that they are either gifted or simply work much harder than the average person. However, this book uncovers the real secret to their success. They do not rely purely on their talent or hard work to achieve success; rather, their success is influenced by innate strengths, acquired opportunities, and cultural backgrounds. Author : Malcolm GladwellMalcolm Gladwell is a Canadian author of Jamaican and English descent. In 2005, he was included in the TIME 100 Most Influential People list. In addition to this, Gladwell has been hailed as “a 21st-century Peter Drucker” by Fast Company. The New York Times described his influence on social thought as “the Gladwell Effect.” He is known for his books The Tipping Point, Blink, Talking To Strangers, and David and Goliath. Each of these books made a splash in the world of non-fiction literature. You can use our APP to find the bookeys for each of these titles. Overview | Chapter 1Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today, we will unlock the book Outliers: The Story of Success. In every era, we can find "outliers" who possess exceptional skills and achieve extraordinary feats. They become a symbol of that era, and their extraordinary performances are recorded in history books. It is commonly believed that their success is attributable to personal factors, that they are either gifted or work significantly harder than the average person. For example, we believe that due to Albert Einstein's superior IQ, he was able to become one of the world's greatest physicists. Similarly, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart practiced for 10,000 hours to compose the classic work Piano Concerto No. 9. On the surface, it seems that having a high IQ and undertaking strenuous efforts will lead to success, but this book tells us that they did not rely purely on their talent or hard work to achieve success; their success was influenced by innate strengths, acquired opportunities, and cultural backgrounds. In other words, social and cultural factors gave them an edge over ordinary people. Furthermore, these strengths may be amplified under the effect of a virtuous circle, thus allowing them to outrank ordinary people in competition. So, in addition to their internal factors—superb talent and hard work—we also need to focus on the external factors that contributed to their success: hidden advantages, opportunities, and cultural influences. The author tells us that without these external factors, even someone who has a higher IQ than Einstein is still likely to fall into mediocrity. By thinking out of the box, this book leads us towards more profound opportunities for success. Also, it gives us another way to interpret factors for success. In this bookey, we'll discuss the book in three parts: Part One: Innate strengths Part Two: Acquired opportunities Part Three: Cultural legacies

Power Quotes From The Show Microbiome As a Dynamic Ecosystem "Because the microbiome is so unique people think that they need something individualized for them otherwise there's no hope of changing it. It's actually not true. It's a very dynamic ecosystem and it's highly personalized. There're dietary recommendations that would be the same for everyone." - Raja Dhir Optimizing Gut Microbiome "Everyone's optimizing for something else. Everyone has different methods and until everyone's looking at the same information set, using the same methods, it's really hard to compare the quality of different data sets. The better way to do it is to functionally understand what your microbiome is doing. Is it making a lot of organic acids? Does it have a lot of organisms that have genes that we know are positive for fiber degradation or converting dietary nutrients or are inflammatory or help to rebuild the gut barrier? This is the level that we're at. We're looking at really clear features and trying to look at the prevalence of those features in different people vs their absence in others." - Raja Dhir Healthy Bowel Movement "Most people just learn over life to cope and assume that bowel movement an irregular, unpredictable, and even potentially something that requires force. You should have little to no strain, ease of expulsion, manageable to no amounts of persistent gas, you shouldn't have bloating, and you shouldn't have many sensitivities to diverse plant matters, especially roughage. If you go through that simple checklist and then compare that to the Bristol stool chart, and see your stool quality coming out (the color, the shape, the texture, the hydration( those are your best indicators. Anything that you do beyond that is about optimizing. This is the day-to-day thing you should ask yourself because that's your first signal for how the whole system is functioning." - Raja Dhir Links From Today's Show Seed - 35% off your first month's supply of DS-01 Daily Synbiotic with code "JOSH" Mind Pump Media Ara Katz Paul Chek Shop the Wellness Force Media Store Organifi – Special 20% off to our listeners with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' breathwork.io BON CHARGE - Save 15% with the code "JOSH15" MANNA Vitality - Save 20% with the code "JOSH20" Mendi.io - Save 20% with the code "JOSH20" Cured Nutrition CBD - Save 20% with the CODE "WELLNESSFORCE" PLUNGE – Save $150 with the code “WELLNESSFORCE" LiftMode - Save 10% with the code "JOSH10" Organifi – Special 20% off to our listeners with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' HVMN - Get 20% off your Ketone IQ order with the code "JOSH" MitoZen – Save 10% with the code “WELLNESSFORCE” Paleovalley – Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code ‘JOSH' NOOTOPIA - Save 10% with the code "JOSH10" ActivationProducts – Save 20% with the code “WELLNESSFORCE” NEUVANA - Save 15% with the code “WELLNESSFORCE” SENSATE - Save $25 on your order with the code "JOSH25" DRY FARM WINES - Get an extra bottle of Pure Natural Wine with your order for just 1¢ ION - Save 15% off sitewide with the code ‘JOSH1KS' Feel Free from Botanic Tonics – Save $40 when you use the code ‘WELLNESS40′ Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, with any purchase BREATHE - Save 20% by using the code “PODCAST20” Essential Oil Wizardry: Save 10% with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' NEUROHACKER - Save 15% with the code "WELLNESSFORCE" ALIVE WATER - Save 33% on your first order with the code "JOSH33" M21 Wellness Guide Wellness + Wisdom Community Leave Wellness + Wisdom a review on Apple Podcasts Raja Dhir Instagram Facebook Twitter About Raja Dhir A life sciences entrepreneur, Raja Dhir has unique expertise in translating scientific research including scaling up both facultative and strict anaerobic organisms.

My guest today is Jason Feifer. Jason is the opposite of a one trick pony. He's a multi-hyphenate: Editor-in-Chief of Entrepreneur magazine, podcast host, book author, keynote speaker, startup advisor, and my personal favourite: non-stop optimism machine. In this episode, we are going to learn about Jason's journey to, I know this is going to sound cliché and click-bait-y… embracing change. Because as much as we all know it's important to understand and accept change, not a lot of us like it, let alone thrive in change. Fret not, Jason is here to show us how. We cover a LOT during this conversation, such as:- Jason's career pre-Entrepreneur Media. In fact, we talk about his study choices during college and whether it was obvious to him from an early age that he was meant to be a journalist. - How Jason pitched dozens of magazines and how one landed at Washington Post- Jason's time at small and large media houses: Men's Health, Fast Company, Maxim Magazine etc. and whether there's one position that massively influenced how he shows up in the world today - Of course, we talk about about Entrepreneur magazine. What was the company like back in 2015? How did Jason get hired there and what helped him get from Executive Editor to Editor in Chief in a very short time (one year)?- I geek out with Jason on a couple of chapters of his book to simplify the takeaways for you, whether you want to grow your career or company, or both. - Jason has met with and interviewed so many famous people Jason: Ryan Reynolds, Gary Vaynerchuk, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jimmy Fallon, etc. Which interview went surprisingly different from what he expected and what did he learn from the experience? - Jason's advice for someone who's in a career transition and how to best make the most of the situation, while being practical and aware of the day to day needs.Subscribe to Jason's newsletter: http://onethingbetter.email/Get Jason's book: https://www.jasonfeifer.com/book/ Follow Jason on Social Media:Jason on LinkedInJason on Instagram----------------------------------------------Liked this episode?

In this episode of Sweet but Fearless, co-founders Mary Sullivan and Cooper Alexander talk about the three power structures at work: Position, Relationship, and Expert power. When thinking of “power” at work, the most traditional one most immediately think of is Position power, the power that arises from one's formal authority and control within an origination. Relationship power, on the other hand, stems from the trust and influence one cultivates with colleagues, while Expert power derives from one's specialized knowledge or skills. As you progress in your leadership role, understanding these powers can serve as a guiding principle and framework in developing and honing your own power skills. Take notes as Mary and Cooper delve into each power structure and provide tips on how to master each. Resources mentioned in the podcast“There are 3 Types of Power at Work.

Human Capital Innovations (HCI) Podcast
In this HCI Podcast episode, Dr. Jonathan H. Westover talks with Joshua Motta about curating a healthy organizational culture. Joshua Motta (https://www.linkedin.com/in/joshuamotta/) is CEO & co-founder of Coalition, which combines cybersecurity and insurance to help organizations prevent digital risk before it strikes. Founded in 2017, Joshua and co-founder John Hering built Coalition with a mission to solve cyber risk and provide security for all. The company now serves over 160,000 customers globally and is proud to be named to Inc.'s Best Places to Work in 2021 and to Fast Company's most innovative companies in 2022. To date, Coalition has raised $755 million in equity funding, valuing the company at $5 billion. Joshua believes that digital risk is not just a technology problem; it is a risk management problem. He founded Coalition to help protect millions of unprotected organizations that don't have the resources, knowledge or insights to manage all the risks they face in the digital economy. Often, these are small and medium businesses who need help preventing digital risk, and assistance with response and recovery in the event of an attack.
