Episode 01: How to Reprogram Your Brain for Success (ft. Derek Sivers)

November 1, 2023

About the Episode

Are you your own worst enemy? Ever think that your life would be so much easier if you could just change your mind about a couple things? Yeah, me too.

In this inaugural episode, I am joined by my old friend Derek Sivers, the one person I know who is better at questioning beliefs and changing his mind than just about anyone… and a bona fide grandmaster at not giving a fuck.

We dig into the most fundamental aspects of our psychology and happiness—our beliefs. We talk about how to change them, which ones should be changed and which ones should not, and the wide-ranging effects these beliefs have throughout our lives.

I believe you will get a lot out of this podcast… see what I did there? I did the believe—eh, never mind.

Derek Sivers Quotes From the Episode

I don’t believe anything I say.
Nothing’s true anyway. Just think of religion as: is it useful or not?
Nobody ever leaves a good marriage.
At some point, every single one of us is going to become disabled, whether it’s the final five minutes of your life, or the final half of your life, or maybe tomorrow.
