Or ask who was the best talent scout in Star Wars? Figure out one of the candidate's interests and ask a question that explores their perception and thought-process rather than just knowledge.Unique interview questions:What tabs are currently open on your browser right now? Engaging this question will give you an idea of how they manage their ideas consumption.Which conspiracy theory do you think is plausible? Regardless of the truth, it shows that the candidate is curious and capable of thinking outside the box.How ambitious are you? It's very hard to fake this answer.How do you practice and improve? Very few people treat their chosen pursuit like that of an athlete or musician. Exceptional people constantly evaluate how their inputs affect their outputs, but few people do it in their professional work.Read the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgTyler Cowen is the Holbert L.

As you know, it's my mission to help teach you how to build the MINDSET and SKILLS that will help you live an extraordinary life - and over the last few months I've been working hard behind the scenes to help create a brand-new tool that will help you do that.It's called Kyzen - and I am proud to announce that I will be bringing it to the world later this year to challenge you to empower yourself and accomplish greater things in life. To learn more, join my Discord at impacttheory.com/discord!.Big goals require DISCIPLINE. By it's very nature, discipline requires you to do hard things - and that is a skill you can LEARN. I'm teaching my process to build Ironclad Discipline in a new workshop - you can register at discipline.impacttheory.comHave you ever realized that the very things that lead to success, purpose, and fulfillment are the things nearly everyone runs away from? Discomfort, hard work, uncomfortable situations and conversations, are the things that no one desires more of, and yet…The ability to build a wildly successful and scalable business is within reach for nearly everyone reading this, and yet through self-selection on the few will do what needs to be done to rise to the top. Of the few that rise to the top, even fewer will do so feeling fulfilled in their life. It takes much more than skills and relationships to be successful. It takes grit and determination to do the hard things. It requires you go through emotionally taxing, ego killing moments of failure, humility, and self-realization to become adaptable and become who you want to be.In this keynote, Tom reveals the hard facts of entrepreneurship and what it takes to be in the 1%. “If you're only good in the beginning you lack grit.” After watching this it's time for a hard self-talk and challenge to yourself. It's time for a no B.S. approach of what will it take to build yourself into the person you desire to be. Don't underestimate what you are capable of, stop thinking too small and get uncomfortable.Tom's 6 Ways to Develop New Skills:Always be readingOpen yourself up to changeWhat you believe is a choiceBe an eternal studentBecome antifragileDevelop GritResources Mentioned:Poem, Richard Cory: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/44982/richard-cory David Foster Wallace, This Is Water: https://youtu.be/8CrOL-ydFMI Tom's Reading List: https://impacttheory.com/reading-list/ “To those human beings who are of any concern to me I wish suffering, desolation, sickness, ill treatment, indignities - I wish that they should not remain unfamiliar with profound self-contempt, the torture of self-mistrust, the wretchedness of the vanquished: I have no pity for them, because I wish them the only thing that can prove today whether one is worth anything or not - that one endures.” -NietzcheSHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction to The Journey Is the Win0:22 | Entrepreneurs Survive Rock Bottom9:12 | Connect to Purpose (Not Money)16:41 | Develop Your Mindset First24:16 | 6 Ways to Develop New Skills37:13 | How to Develop Grit46:16 | Identify Your Passion & Develop It51:03 | Building a Scalable Business1:01:29 | Value of Online Community 1:14:17 | Success Requires Clear Goals QUOTES:“Each and every one of you at some point in your life, you're going to hit rock bottom.

This week, we launch a new mini-series: The Resties Required Reading List.  Our goal is to curate and contextualize a "must play" list of 25 games released between 1980 to 2020. These aren't the best games or even our favorite games. They're the games that should be experienced by everyone who wants a fundamental appreciation of the medium. They're the games that will give you a richer connection with every other game you play.  Throughout 2022 and 2023 we'll publish new entries in the series, each episode focusing on a five-year period. Episodes will be sporadic and non-chronological. To kick things off, we've selected 2005-2009. Let us know what you think of the series and your personal reading list at @thebestiespod on Twitter.
