Show notes for the first three episodes:
Episode One – What is Forward Tilt?
How do you find top level talent? You look for forward tilt.
You look for the people who are so excited by opportunities that they lean across they table when they talk about it. The type of people who physically manifest their excitement.
People with forward tilt don’t shy away from opportunities. They lean in. They are eager, ready, and excited about new challenges.
If you’re setting out in your career, your attitude matters as much as your skills. As long as you bring excitement and a bias for action to the table you can learn everything you need to know once you start.
In this episode:
- What is forward tilt?
- Who is this podcast for?
- Do you have forward tilt?
- How can you develop forward tilt?
- How forward tilt helps you build the life you want to live
Episode Two – Get Shit Done
This is a tale of two interns.
Intern number one was intelligent, passionate, and impressive. But he had a fatal flaw. He didn’t get shit done.
Intern number two wasn’t as impressive initially. He didn’t have the same people skills. But always delivered. He was reliable.
Reliability is simple, but so few people do it. If you are relentlessly reliable, if you get shit done, you are going places.
Because having impressive skills is a lot less important than simply and consistently getting shit done.
In this episode:
- A tale of two intern
- How you hurt yourself when you don’t deliver (even if your rationalize it)
- The mindset that lowers your career ceiling
- How reliability leads to recommendations
- Why getting shit done is crucial when you start your career
Episode Three – As if it’s True
“The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life.” – Jessica Hische
This quote was shared recently in the Praxis community and it started a debate. Some participants thought it was true, some disagreed.
But what if this debate was about the wrong question entirely. What if there is a better way to approach aphorisms?
In this episode:
- The best way to approach aphorisms
- Is there a lesson in your procrastination?
- Approaching cliches and aphorisms as if they were true and learning from the experiment
