Finding the courage to move forward in your career and your life means not being so afraid of failure. It is human to be upset by failure and setbacks but is there a way to move yourself past this? To have a hard word with yourself and take more pride in yourself and your accomplishments? Do you have a spare 30 minutes? In this podcast episode of GIRLBOSS RADIO with Sophia Amoruso, She interviews Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code.
Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code, joins host Sophia Amoruso to discuss her new book, Brave, Not Perfect: Fear Less, Fail More, And Live Bolder. In it, Saujani argues that there's a stark, cultural difference in how we are raising boys and girls to approach risk-taking and failure. As in, boys are taught to embrace risk and see failure as inevitable while girls are taught to strive for perfection and to lean toward what they're good at. And it's in that quest for perfection that makes it especially challenging for women to veer from their comfort zone. We come to see failure, Saujani tells Sophia, as a thing to avoid at all costs. The solution? Approach life and your career with a mindset focused on bravery—not perfection. Listen in to hear Saujani recount what it’s like to have your dad deal with trolls online, how we can overcome the pitfalls of living in a success-driven culture, and much more.
In this age of technology, it can be scary to realise how much time in your day you are staring at the small screen in your hand. In this podcast, we hear how it's possible to step away from all those easy distractions from boredom and take interest in the world around us, especially if your career is constantly putting you in front of a screen. Rather than a decluttering method, Cal Newport suggests just ripping the band-aid off and doing a 30-day digital diet. Not for a quick fix detox, but investing in a bit of you time.
In this episode of Duct Tape Marketing, John visits with Cal Newport, computer scientist and author of Digital Minimalism. They discuss our collective tech obsession, and what we can do to find a healthier balance between our phone usage and high-quality leisure activities.
