This is one of two podcasts (the other being ChoseFI) that I tell everyone they should be listening to on a regular basis. Take a break from music and get the knowledge you need to level up your life.

I love this podcast. One of the best out there.

Description

Selected by Apple as a "Best of 2018" Podcast. Join Jordan Harbinger with Jason DeFillippo as we get deep into the untapped wisdom of the world's top performers -- from intelligence operatives to legendary musicians, iconoclastic writers to visionary changemakers.

Then, take these practical insights into your own life and live what you listen.

Episode Date
288: Erik Weihenmayer | A Blind Man Sees No Barriers
01:12:59

Erik Weihenmayer (@ErikWeihenmayer) has kayaked the Grand Canyon and climbed Mount Everest -- blind. He is the author of Touch the Top of the World and co-author of No Barriers and The Adversity Advantage.

What We Discuss with Erik Weihenmayer:

  • How challenges unite us as human beings -- no matter our hardships or handicaps.
  • Why losing his sight as a teenager didn't discourage Erik from excelling beyond the capacity of the world's most accomplished extreme athletes.
  • How Erik embraces a "no barriers" philosophy to guide and lift others -- even when their own cultures seek to keep them down.
  • Why Erik's not "the blind climber," but a climber who happens to be blind -- and why this makes all the difference.
  • The instincts, senses, and technology that allow Erik to navigate around his dangerous terrains of choice without sight.
  • And much more...

287: How to Stop Taking Feedback So Personally | Feedback Friday
00:55:24

You find criticism somewhat punishing rather than productive -- especially when it's given by people you love. So how can you stop taking feedback so personally? We'll explore this and more on the latest Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/287

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • How should we refer to our listener base?
  • Is there a reason to share your salary with anyone else?
  • Is it your imagination that there's tension between you and the only other woman in the office?
  • As a business owner, how should you respond to competition fishing for pricing?
  • How do you find hangout buddies?
  • What can you do to help your boss step up as the leader you need him or her to be?
  • Are extremely confident people drawn to jobs like teaching? Or is it the job that brings out the best in people?
  • How do you keep contacts in your network from going cold?
  • How should you stop taking feedback so personally -- especially when it's given by the people you love?
  • Life Pro Tip: Compliment people on what you want them to be, even if they may not live up to it yet. Because when people hear themselves referred to in a certain way, they’ll be motivated to act more that way.
  • Recommendation of the Week: Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator (And advice: Don't believe everything you see in any documentary. Always do some follow-up research before treating it as gospel!)

284: Should I Secretly Test My Kid's Paternity? | Feedback Friday
00:51:25

While doing a little Facebook stalking recently, you noticed that photos of your wife's ex-boyfriend's youngest look suspiciously like your own youngest. You're thinking about discreetly having your kid take a paternity test, but you're honestly not sure what you'd do if the results confirmed your suspicions. So what should you do? We'll try to help you with this and more on the latest Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/284.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Should you secretly undertake a paternity test on your 11-year old?
  • You're a cybersecurity student stuck in a career ditch. How do you dig yourself out?
  • You struggle with stammering. What can you do to find your way through?
  • How do you sell ideas without getting them stolen?
  • What does "I'm here if you need anything" actually mean, and how far can you take it?
  • Threatened by hackers, you wonder: where do old passwords go to die?
  • Should you report your ex for a visa breach that could get them deported?
  • How can you get out of spending Thanksgiving with your fiance's family for for much needed "me" time?
  • Life Pro Tip: Next commute, take time to listen to your car without the radio on. Your ears may pick up on sounds you wouldn't otherwise notice that indicate it's time to take it to the shop.
  • Recommendation of the Week: Hail Satan?

283: Brian Koppelman | How to Make Billions
01:14:10

Brian Koppelman (@BrianKoppelman) is a writer, filmmaker, producer, and director. He's currently the showrunner, co-creator, and executive producer of Billions on Showtime and the host of The Moment podcast.

What We Discuss with Brian Koppelman:

  • Law school is an expensive (but not completely useless) place to learn life lessons.
  • How do you know when you've done work of "undeniable" quality -- in the absolute sense?
  • The line between being an artist and being delusional is very thin.
  • If you want to be a screenwriter, read a thousand screenplays.
  • We focus so much on the hustle that sometimes we forget to focus on the work.
  • And so much more…

282: Ken Perenyi | The Secret Life of an American Art Forger
01:43:43

Ken Perenyi is a former art forger who spent 34 years creating fake paintings that passed muster among the experts in the world's major auction houses and galleries. He comes clean to tell us how he got away with it in his book Caveat Emptor: The Secret Life of an American Art Forger.

What We Discuss with Ken Perenyi:

  • How Ken, as an academically disinclined New Jersey teenager with no artistic background and zero plans for the future, fell headfirst into the New York art scene of the '60s and '70s.
  • What a fortuitous trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art awakened in Ken and how it led from technical curiosity to natural talent to outright forgery.
  • How Ken prematurely aged his work to appear hundreds of years old, the materials he used, and how long it took him to create forgeries that would fool even lifelong, devoted experts.
  • The first nervous deal Ken ever made and how it fed an ambition to take his talents as far as they would go.
  • How Ken survived scrutiny by the mafia and FBI, changed his ways, and now works on the level selling "high-class fakes" rather than "forgeries."
  • And much more...

281: My Wife Thinks I'm Hiding Money | Feedback Friday
00:50:20

Your shopaholic wife spends like there's no tomorrow, and is irked that you won't add her to the account for the business you've been running since before you were married. In fact, she loves to gain sympathy from others by telling them you're hiding money away from her -- which irks you. But one practical question did recently come up: What happens to the money in that account if anything should ever happen to you and she doesn't have access to it? On this Feedback Friday, we delve into this and much more!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It’s filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details!
  • It's been a long day. Are you a jerk for not letting someone cut in front of you in the grocery store checkout line just because they say their child is waiting for them in their car and everyone behind you already let them through?
  • You were able to use the tips you learned about negotiation in our episodes with Alex Kouts and Ramit Sethi to get a raise from your old boss. But now that it's time to ask for an increase, you've got a new boss with whom you haven't yet established rapport. Should you wait?
  • In another nod to the Alex Kouts episodes, you've negotiated the raises to elevate you into a higher tax bracket -- but you're clueless about how to behave in the associated culture. How do you fit in with your new peers without feeling like you just landed on another planet?
  • Even though your parents don't let your 10-year-old sister use Instagram because they don't want her interacting with creepy DMs from predators, she's allowed to use TikTok because of the "funny videos" even though you know the creeps are there, too. How can you keep her safe?
  • Three years ago, you married a widow whose husband died three years before that. You don't really have a problem talking about him with her, but you no longer want to visit his grave with her where she breaks down and makes you feel like a consolation prize. Is this wrong of you?
  • Your shop-happy wife is irked that she doesn't have access to the business account you've had since before you got married,...

280: Sarah Hill | This Is Your Brain on Birth Control
01:28:10

Dr. Sarah Hill (@sarahehillphd) is a leading researcher in the dynamic and rapidly expanding field of evolutionary psychology, and the author of This Is Your Brain on Birth Control: The Surprising Science of Women, Hormones, and the Law of Unintended Consequences.

What We Discuss with Dr. Sarah Hill:

  • How hormonal birth control affects women -- and the world around them -- in ways we are just now beginning to understand.
  • Why a woman will be attracted to a certain partner while taking hormonal birth control -- and the problems this could cause for a relationship when she stops taking it.
  • On a hormonal contraceptive, a woman is twice as likely to have attempted suicide as a woman who was not on a hormonal contraceptive.
  • Why, in spite of its drawbacks, Sarah credits the pill to her own ability to achieve a doctorate and career success.
  • Why these new findings should be a rallying cry for women to demand more information from science about how their bodies and brains work and to advocate for better research.
  • And much more...

00:58:41

Dennis Quaid has been a Hollywood leading man for decades, fronts a band called The Sharks, and now stars in a new scripted musical podcast called Bear and a Banjo.

What We Discuss with Dennis Quaid:

  • Whether or not getting rejected for a coveted job in Hollywood ever gets easier -- even when you've been getting cast for decades.
  • Why Dennis considers fear his greatest motivator -- and what this indicates to him when he feels it upon being offered a role.
  • The hardest place to get respect, the greatest things our kids teach us, and where dad jokes go to die.
  • Listening versus improvising, and how Dennis brings his characters to life without strictly memorizing his lines before arriving on set.
  • Accents, biographical misinformation, and how learning to play a real-life astronaut led to Dennis learning how to fly real-life planes.
  • And much more...

278: My Mother Lied about Our Father's Death | Feedback Friday
00:48:47

When you were kids, you and your brother moved to the other side of the country with your mother and stepfather not long after your parents divorced. You never saw your father again, and believed your mother when she said that he and his mother -- your grandmother -- had died. Fast forward to now. You and your brother are adults, and he's got a bombshell to drop: your grandmother is still alive, and your father only recently passed away. Feeling betrayed, you've pieced together your mother and stepfather's systematic strategy to estrange you from your dad's side of the family (who, by the way, tried to find you over that time without success) -- and you're angry. You feel robbed of the time you could have spent with them, and you're wondering how you should raise the issue with your mother -- or if you should. This is obviously a sensitive situation, but we'll do our best to help you with this and more on the latest Feedback Friday.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It’s filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details!
  • When you have to cover for your kid's friend's expenses on a movie and pizza night because his mom neglected to provide him with any cash, is it wrong for you to expect his mother to recompensate you for those expenses even though she works two jobs and says you look like you can afford it?
  • Your 80-year-old grandmother insists on bringing your bedridden and nonverbal father home instead of putting him in a place where he can get the constant care he needs. Putting your grandmother's strong will aside, what's the most responsible call to make here?
  • As kids, you and your brother moved across the country with your mom when your parents divorced. Until recently, you never saw your dad's side of the family again because, your brother recently discovered, your mom lied about your father and your grandmother's deaths. How do you confront your mother -- or should you?
  • You have a serious case of wanderlust. You have no debt, no children, and above average savings. But your friends and family look at you like you're insane whenever you mention leaving a job you love in order to travel. You know that the amazing experiences will be worth it, but can't help but wonder: are you crazy?
  • You work in an incredibly cutthroat sales company where only 10%-15% of employees hired retain their employment, and you're in that top 15%. But you don't love your job and only stick around because you've got the "golden handcuffs" to keep you tethered. You're an underperforming...

277: Neil Pasricha | You Are Awesome
01:09:42

Neil Pasricha (@neilpasricha) is a New York Times bestselling author of five books including The Book of AwesomeThe Happiness Equation, and his latest, You Are Awesome: How to Navigate Change, Wrestle with Failure, and Live an Intentional Life.

What We Discuss with Neil Pasricha:

  • Why anxiety is at an all-time high when we live in an age of relative ease compared to what our ancestors (and even recent generations) endured.
  • Why you need to be prepared — and willing — to lose more if you want to win more from what life has to offer.
  • How to set up incredibly productive untouchable days where you’re basically unplugged and unreachable — even when you have bosses and significant others who may be resistant to the idea.
  • How to use the Saturday morning test to brainstorm new skills, adventures, and personal improvements you’d like to implement.
  • A failure budget you can use to try new things, fail, and rejoin the fray — enhanced by the experience, but with relatively few scrapes and bruises.
  • And much more…

276: Admiral James Stavridis | The Voyage of Character
01:15:58

James Stavridis (@stavridisj) is a retired United States Navy admiral, operating executive with The Carlyle Group, and author. His latest book, Sailing True North: Ten Admirals and the Voyage of Character, is out now.

What We Discuss with James Stavridis:

  • What Admiral Stavridis means when he says we're "overweight in thinking about leadership and underweight in thinking about character."
  • Why creativity and innovation are important for leaders -- and the roadblocks that tend to smother these qualities as we achieve in our lives and careers.
  • Principles followed when top brass make decisions that put people in harm's way.
  • The winners and losers in the recent decision to pull US troops from Syria and what this means for our former allies in the region.

275: The Case of the Mysterious Hotel Panties | Feedback Friday
00:54:51

Your fiance travels and stays in hotels at different locations every week for work. The other day, you found black Victoria's Secret panties in your laundry. The thing it, you don't wear Victoria's Secret. So you approached him and said, "I need help understanding how this is in our belongings." He said this is a truly unfortunate situation because he doesn't know how it got there. You closely watched him for any signs that would alarm you as hints of lying. You found none. Is there any surefire way to know if a significant other is cheating beyond what amounts to circumstantial evidence? We'll try to unlock this and more on the latest Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

  • A mysterious pair of panties that don't belong to you showed up in your laundry after your fiance returned from a business trip. He says he has no idea how they got there. Is there a surefire way to tell if he's been cheating and lying?
  • You're a single dad who shares equal custody of a five-year-old son. His mom and new husband have offered the option to stay in a trailer on their property. You all get along great and this would be convenient for everyone, but is it an appropriate arrangement?
  • As a leader in the workplace, you helped someone you thought was an amazing employee get promoted. Now you find that this person is mocking you behind your back and taking sick days once a month. You went to bat for this person and you feel betrayed. What now?
  • You've been using techniques in Six-Minute Networking for talking to strangers, but what can you do when people aggressively try to shut down a conversation? Should you just call it a loss, cut bait, and move on, or try to break the dam a different way?
  • You broke up with your girlfriend of four years because she started having feelings for another woman. Neither of you want this, but you're not able to continue loving her and only her knowing that she doesn't love you and only you back. Where do you go from here?
  • You're worried that your significant other's negativity is rubbing off on you; your social life is suffering and you haven't felt like yourself lately. Even though you still care about them, you feel breaking up is the best way to give them the time and space they need. But how?
  • You just started a new career. You want to start off strongly, but you already feel intimidated and think perhaps you have a little imposter syndrome. What...

Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) is the creator of comic strip Dilbert, a talent stacker extraordinaire, and bestselling author. His latest book, Loserthink: How Untrained Brains Are Ruining America, is out now.

What We Discuss with Scott Adams:

  • Why the term “loserthink” isn’t about being uninformed — it’s about unproductive thinking.
  • Mental models we use that sometimes fail us, and thinking traps that we fall into when we’re looking to interpret communication, evaluate facts or evidence, and form opinions.
  • How to evaluate fake news and see why the business models of many media outlets have been redesigned to keep us engaged at the expense of accuracy and truth.
  • When and how to dial down our ego so we can clarify our thinking, and also when and how we can use our ego as a tool to move forward.
  • Ways to evaluate and poke holes in bad arguments, and strengthen our own methods of thinking and arguing.
  • And much more…

272: How to Sue Your Parents for Identity Theft | Feedback Friday
00:47:10

Last week you texted your parents to let them know you'd be able to make it home for Christmas this year. They called back to tell you how they decided several years ago to buy a boat. The only problem was that they didn't have the $20,000 to buy it. Their solution? Take out a student loan in your name, of course! Now they've missed several payments and it's about to default, and your father had the nerve to say, "If you're going to make a big deal about this, it's best if you don't come home this year." In shock and 'about' $25,000' in debt, you're wondering if you should sue your parents for identity theft. On this Feedback Friday, we'll do our best to help you figure out not only if, but how to sue your parents for identity theft if you decide it's the right thing to do.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com.

On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Your parents are about to default on a $20,000 student loan they took out in your name without permission so they could buy a boat. So now the question is not only if, but how to sue your parents for identity theft and make sure you’re not on the hook for their mistake.
  • This year, your sister bought plentiful gifts for your oldest and youngest kids, but shorted the middle one considerably. You don’t want to appear ungrateful, but what can you do to make it clear how this is going to play out for Jan Brady on Christmas morning?
  • You have trouble connecting and communicating with people and cultures outside your own. You’re a science-y, city type struggling with social skills, and your work brings you into contact with a more rural demographic. How can you bridge the gap?
  • Because you compete in beauty pageants, some make incorrect assumptions about your intelligence. How can you build your professional identity and network as a future physician without having to hide your personal interests and accomplishments?
  • You’re in a small market and want to get noticed by potential mentors or hiring managers outside of your geographic location. What thoughts or strategies do we have for moving up the corporate ladder?
  • Your recent college graduate son is an introvert with Asperger-like qualities when it comes to interpersonal skills. When you bring up networking as a way to get ahead in his new career, he shuts down and exits the conversation. How can you best support his progress?
  • You’re starting to plan your work travel for next year. How do we decide what conferences and events are worth our time when we’re making our travel plans?
  • You hate winter so much because of the cold, the dark, and the holidays. You get depressed and stressed, and basically hibernate. What do we recommend for people with past abuse for whom the holidays turn into a deep, dark, angry depression?

Ryan Holiday (@ryanholiday) is the bestselling author of Trust Me, I'm Lying; The Obstacle Is the Way; Ego Is the Enemy; Conspiracy, and other books about marketing, culture, and the human condition. His latest offering is Stillness Is the Key.

What We Discuss with Ryan Holiday:

  • How successful people learn to process feedback -- and consider its source in order to improve and move forward.
  • Why self-awareness is the secret weapon of some of the highest-performing people you'll meet.
  • What can keep us striving and moving upward in a world where it's way too easy to compare ourselves to one another and beat ourselves up in the process.
  • How Ryan found the purpose and motivation to write eight books and ghost write another six by the time he was 30.
  • The eerie, intuitive, borderline magical superpowers of Mr. Rogers, Cesar Millan, and the two daycare miracle workers who can put 15 toddlers down for a nap (including Ryan's son) simultaneously every day.

What We Discuss with Ben Horowitz:

  • What the Haitian slave revolt can teach us about creating a thriving, resilient company culture from chaos.
  • Why a company's culture -- for better or worse -- will endure in the memory of the people who work there far longer than the consequences of a bad quarter.
  • The disasters that strike when a company's core values and culture reveal their dark side.

269: My Stepdaughter's Mom Is A Sex Worker | Feedback Friday
00:57:39

Your stepdaughter is 14 and has been living full time with you and your husband for about eight years. Every other weekend she spends with her mom, who you know is a sex worker. The stepdaughter just says her mom works away, but doesn't know what she does. Recently you were sent a screenshot of a Facebook post from another mom in your stepdaughter's class asking if it was real. The post had an ad for your stepdaughter's Mom's "services." You haven't answered yet because you don't know what to say. Since it's out on Facebook, should you give the stepdaughter a heads up that her mom takes money for sex, or do you let her get blindsided by the kids in school? On this Feedback Friday, we'll try to help you do the right thing here.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

  • Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It’s filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details!
  • Unknown to her, your stepdaughter's biological mother is a sex worker. Now that busybodies in your town have found out, should you tell her before she finds out from her bullying classmates?
  • You're forced to interact often with someone who doesn't respect your time and keeps you locked in long, boring conversations for what adds up to about three hours a week. What's your best escape plan?
  • Your fiance's sister moved to a new city and hasn't had much success with networking. As far as you know, she hasn't made any friends, isn't dating, and doesn't have any hobbies. You want to help her, but you're not sure how. What do we suggest?
  • When you have new coworkers who seem to go out of their way to exclude you from their conversations, it's hard not to take it personally. What can you do, if anything, to cope with cliques in the workplace?
  • You've found a job for which you'd love to apply, but the company is requiring a cover letter with pay requirements. Is there a comfortable middle ground you can ask for that doesn’t make you seem overzealous?
  • You're analytical, and your spouse is emotional. You usually play off of each other's strengths, but you're currently in a conversational stalemate in which you feel like your spouse is treating you like a jerk for just trying to help. What's really going on here?
  • You recently graduated from a great school, but you've only managed to get a handful of interviews and no offers over the last several months. Your confidence and resources are dwindling and you don't know what else to do. How can you keep your spirits up while finding your bearings?

What We Discuss with Robert Spalding:

  • The consequences the United States faces as a result of its economic connections to a totalitarian state that openly opposes its core values.
  • How electronics and sensors are being created for American consumers that send data to China to feed the government's artificial intelligence systems.
  • Why there can't be a global free market system when the second biggest economy in the world isn't participating.
  • How US manufacturing suffers as a result of consumer demand for "cheap stuff" that China is more than happy to fulfill.
  • China's fraudulent accounting methods, akin to a ponzi scheme, that actively erode the US economy with assistance from the very people this hurts.

266: Should I Tell My Friend He's a Horrible Person? | Feedback Friday
00:56:56

Recently you stopped all contact with a childhood friend due to his toxic behavior. He went through a pretty bad breakup due to his behavior and you had enough. He thinks that by being a horrible dick to people, he’s being really honest and helping them. Your other friends tell you that you should talk to him about why you cut him off, but you feel you've told him one too many times why he’s a dick and what he could do to change. Do you owe him a conversation just because you were childhood friends? On this Feedback Friday, we'll try to help you decide whether to continue ghosting this ex-friend or actually take the time to tell him he's a horrible person.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

  • Recently you stopped all contact with a childhood friend due to his toxic behavior. Do you owe him a conversation just because you were childhood friends -- even if it's just to tell him he's a horrible person?
  • You've grown distant from your once-close sibling, who has become increasingly anxious and self-isolated to the point where family visits never happen anymore. Is there a way you can help draw them out?
  • Your boyfriend enjoys porn, so you're wondering -- from a guy's perspective -- why is it necessary to have an “escape” from a relationship with a partner who is perfectly willing to do it all? Is he just scared to be vulnerable enough to ask you?
  • After six potential relationships got nipped in the bud because the other person says you're "too good" for them, your suspicions are aroused. What's the most likely story, and what can you do to change this all-too-familiar outcome?
  • When you work in politics and it's election season, how do you wrangle your campaign volunteers to do the work that's proven effective (phone calls and knocking on doors) instead of the work they want to do (strategy meetings and social media)?
  • You're constantly told you need to meet with mentors, but you've gotten a lot of terrible advice from them. Is there any value to just going through the motions with bad mentors who may be great connections if not the soundest strategists?
  • You're a shoe-in for a job opportunity opening near you soon, but it would mean pulling out of a job you're not that excited about that requires a lengthy commute. How can you let go of the latter job without leaving anyone in the lurch?

What We Discuss with Moran Cerf:

  • What would a future in which we could connect our brains to the cloud and outsource parts of our thinking look like?

  • How teachers might use virtual reality attuned to our specific brain engagement patterns to ensure we’re learning at an optimal rate.

What We Discuss with Mike Rowe:

  • The kind of cognitive dissonance Mike believes our country needs right now, and the tropes we could afford to grasp more loosely.
  • How the prevailing desire among correction culture commandos to prove others wrong on the Internet stifles our ability to exchange ideas freely.
  • Why Mike eschews second takes in favor of presenting his audience with the authentic moments they trust him to share.
  • How Mike’s thrifty (and crafty) parents suckered him into feeling sorry for rich people when he was growing up.
  • Why we shouldn’t view a blue collar career pursuit as a cautionary tale in comparison to the lifelong debt likely incurred by chasing a four-year degree these days.
  • And much more…

263: How Can I Win Back My Spouse's Respect? | Feedback Friday
00:49:14

You recently had a revelation that your spouse has zero respect for you. On a daily basis, you’re reminded how to do basic tasks and criticized for every minor mistake you make. You’ve also noticed that they never value your advice, and if they have a question about something — no matter how confident your answer is — they’ll always ask someone else afterward as if they don’t value or believe your answer. You work hard, have a good job that supports your family on your income alone, you help out around the house probably more than most in your position, and you’re going to school to further your education and job opportunities even more. The big question is: If they really do have zero respect for you, how can you win back your spouse’s respect? We’ll try to answer this and much more on the latest Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn’t already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let’s dive in!

On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It’s filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details!
  • From the way you’re treated in public and private, you recently had a revelation that your spouse of several years has zero respect for you. Even if you can figure out why, can respect ever be regained after it’s lost? If so, how?
  • You’re trying to get through college as an introvert, but your challenges are going as expected. Once people have an impression of you as an unfriendly person fixed in their minds, is it possible to change it?
  • You’re trying to move into another role at your current company; you had a great interview and thought it was a sure thing. But they chose someone else and you wonder what went wrong. What can you do to improve your chances next time?
  • Your significant other isn’t pulling their weight financially. How can you tactfully approach the matter without making them feel completely worthless, and what can you do to ensure they understand the concept of “adulting?”
  • You’re from a developing nation and, thanks to the Internet, you relate more to Western culture than the one in which you were raised. Unfortunately, any potential significant other isn’t on board with your “radical” views. Should you seek love in another land even though you don’t have a lot of money to travel?
  • You’re young, and so are most of your network connections. Should you still work on this younger network, or should you try to build an older...

T.I. (@Tip) is an award-winning rapper, actor, entrepreneur, family man, philanthropist, author, activist, and host of expediTIously on PodcastOne.

What We Discuss with T.I.:

  • Why T.I. went from selling candy to selling crack as a teenager, and how he turned away from a life of crime to pursue a life of rhyme.
  • How does an award-winning rapper, actor, entrepreneur, family man, philanthropist, author, activist, and podcast host celebrate a landmark birthday?
  • T.I.'s world-tested secrets to releasing an album and filming an unauthorized music video while serving time in prison.
  • How T.I. walks the line between excess and moderation when it comes to everything from music to jewelry to tequila.
  • Does T.I. feel tension between setting a good example for kids and community, and staying on top of the rap game?
  • And much more...

261: Mubin Shaikh | Up Close with an Undercover Jihadi
01:20:21

Mubin Shaikh (@MrMubinShaikh) is a former Islamic extremist who became an undercover counter-terrorism operative instrumental in exposing a plot to hold Canada's Parliament hostage and behead the Prime Minister. He is the co-author of Undercover Jihadi: Inside the Toronto 18 -- Al Qaeda Inspired, Homegrown Terrorism in the West.

What We Discuss with Mubin Shaikh:

  • What does "radicalization" mean to someone who's experienced it firsthand, and how can it convert a teenaged Canadian metalhead into a true believer of a cause that uses terrorism to accomplish its goals?
  • What did it take for this true believer to change course and start working for his government's counter-terrorist agency?
  • The differences between Sufi and Wahhabi Islam, and what makes the latter a more suitable creed for extremists.
  • Why "terrorism is the atom bomb of the poor man."
  • How Mubin's undercover work exposed a massive terrorist plot, and what the aftermath of this operation looked like.
  • And much more...

260: How to Quit Your Prostitute Problem | Feedback Friday
01:03:11

You're in your 30s, single, and you have a problem with prostitutes. You don't even really enjoy the experience and you know it's not worth your time, money, or the legal or health risks, but you still have an irresistible compulsion to continue meeting with them. Even more troubling is that you've noticed it's slowly changing how you see money and women. You know you'd like to settle down with the right woman some day, but you worry that the temptation to cheat on her with a prostitute could ruin everything. It's out of control. So what can you do? On this Feedback Friday, we'll try to help you figure out how to quit your prostitute problem (and determine why you have one in the first place).

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It's filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details!
  • Your proclivity for prostitutes is a problem. Perhaps there's a process to properly put this pricey, precarious, and pointless pursuit out to pasture?
  • As a first time juror, how do you balance your desire for justice with impartiality in a difficult-to-prove case? [Thanks to Corbin Payne, Esq. for helping with this one!]
  • When everyone has to work harder to make up for the boss' brother (who pulls full salary but only shows up half the time), can company culture be called to task, or is it just time to move on?
  • You wound up on Hertz's do not rent list as the result of a fraudster stealing cars under your identity. The company refuses to take you off the list in spite of proof you weren't at fault. Is there any recourse for you?
  • You believe you have solid ideas, but no capital or time to develop and market them. Is it possible to sell these ideas to someone with these resources without getting taken advantage of?
  • You've just turned 18, but feel directionless. While you don't want to live a "normal" life that's been played out millions of times, becoming a therapist or trying your hand at standup comedy have crossed your mind. What's our advice?
  • If you're the average of the five people you spend the most time with, what happens when you can't relate to anyone in your immediate circle since moving to be closer to your spouse's family in another country and settling for a miserable, underpaying job?
  • Your coworker would be more articulate (and effective at his job) if he could only eliminate that Beaky Buzzard-like "duhhhhh" he uses as conversation filler. How can you tactfully suggest ways for him to hone his presentation skills?

Dr. Jolene Brighten (@drbrighten) is a nutritional biochemist, a pioneer in women's medicine, and the author of Beyond the Pill: A 30-Day Program to Balance Your Hormones, Reclaim Your Body, and Reverse the Dangerous Side Effects of the Birth Control Pill.

What We Discuss with Dr. Jolene Brighten:

  • The pros and cons of using hormonal birth control.
  • How the birth control pill can change who you're attracted to and why there are higher instances of divorce when women go off the pill after getting married while on it.
  • The problems that arise for all of us when scientifically accurate sex education isn't mandated in every school.
  • How the pill can mask symptoms of serious health problems -- even infertility.
  • What you can do to alleviate potential problems from using the pill, and when to know it's time to switch doctors who don't take your concerns seriously.
  • And much more...

258: Dennis Rodman | The Worm Is Back
01:00:49

Dennis Rodman (@dennisrodman) (aka The Worm) is one of the greatest rebounders ever to play professional basketball, with five NBA championships under his belt. He's arguably just as well-known for his off-court antics, and his resume includes stints as an author, an actor, a reality star, a wrestler, and an unofficial diplomat to North Korea.

What We Discuss with Dennis Rodman:

  • How Dennis went from being a shy, neglected kid to a people-pleasing watch thief to a man who values independence and naysayer-defying personal expression above all else.
  • Why the hustle of living as a homeless 19-year-old was more appealing than eating mustard sandwiches in the projects with his family.
  • The volatile relationship Dennis has had with the media over the years, and how he decides who's worthy of his trust (and who's not) these days.
  • Why, given his passing interest in basketball until a late growth spurt made him a contender, Dennis' self-taught and unique approach to world-class rebounding is particularly surprising.
  • Marrying himself, being an early ally to the LBGTQ community, the pros and cons of fame, and risky birthday toasts to Kim Jong-un in North Korea.
  • And much more...

257: Overcoming Accidental Accomplice to Fraud | Feedback Friday
01:18:58

You were recently and unknowingly an accomplice to fraud and credit card theft. You’re a freelancer with a client who frequently used your services; you built trust, and then he asked you to transfer some money for him as a paid favor. Your poor judgment, kindness, and greed led to where you are now. Now the real credit card owners are issuing chargebacks, which are draining your account, and you don’t have their money because you sent the money to someone else. What do you do? We’ll try to answer this and more on this Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn’t already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • You were unknowingly an accomplice to credit card fraud. Now the real credit card owners are issuing chargebacks, which is draining your account and you don’t have their money because you sent the money to someone else. What do you do?
  • Because you’re in the entertainment industry, you’ve been getting nipped and tucked for years and you look much younger than your time on earth would indicate. Is it imperative that you tell your new significant other about your cosmetic procedures?
  • Your future in-laws seem to be in a financially abusive relationship — with one taking more than their fair share from the other — to the point that you hope they divorce. Are you out of line by wishing for this?
  • What do you do when a friend, colleague, family member, or loved one seems to be losing their marbles before your very eyes?
  • You’ve been growing your network with great success over the past few years, which is awesome. What’s not so awesome is worrying about how to balance the time you spend with these connections as your network grows. How can you keep quality job one in this case?
  • Even when you know a recent breakup was for the right reasons, it’s hard not to ruminate over where they are, who they could be with, what they’re thinking, if they are thinking of you, and whether they’ll ever return one day. How can you move on?
  • You’ve legally adopted your wife’s 16-year-old, but he’s troubled. How do you get him to see the errors of his ways? How do you look at him without wanting to snap at him? How do you lead him to want to better himself, grow, and not just do the minimum?

256: Malcolm Gladwell | What We Should Know about Talking to Strangers
01:01:30

Malcolm Gladwell (@gladwell) has written bestsellers that are probably on your shelf right now, including The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, and What the Dog Saw. His latest book is Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know.

What We Discuss with Malcolm Gladwell:

  • Why, if we don't know how to talk to strangers, we invite conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world.
  • Why the information we gather from face-to-face human interaction isn't as uniquely valuable as we think it is.
  • Why television makes us worse at reading other people.
  • Why we think we can tell if someone is lying, guilty, or deceptive -- and why we're almost always wrong.
  • What determines the direction of Malcolm's projects, and how he researches and organizes the massive amount of information that goes into them.
  • And much more...

What We Discuss with Tommy Caldwell:

  • How the confidence Tommy gained from climbing since age three transformed him from a shy, scrawny kid into a world-class athlete, author, and someone who can be interviewed on podcasts without fear.
  • Tommy's tried-and-true formula for getting better at coping with scary, potentially life-threatening situations.
  • How climbing is part endurance, part puzzle, and part chess strategy.
  • The differences between sport climbing, free climbing, and free soloing.
  • What it's like to get kidnapped by rebel extremists in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan when you're just trying to do a little climbing with your friends.
  • And much more...

254: Is Exposing a Cheater the Right Thing to Do? | Feedback Friday

Is exposing a cheater the right thing to do even if it may ruin your friendship? We’ll dig into this and more right here on Feedback Friday!

  • Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It’s filling up fast; reach out to prison@jordanharbinger.com for details!
  • You recently uncovered dirt on your friend’s significant other as a faithless, two-timing snake. Is exposing this cheater the right thing to do?
  • Recently reconnecting with an old friend, you were shocked to discover they’ve been diagnosed with a potentially fatal condition. While you’re not super close, you want to be of comfort without being awkward. What should you do?
  • New to your field, you’ll be attending a networking event with other young professionals and industry veterans soon. What can you do to stand out and be remembered in a good way?
  • You recently angered a friend by unknowingly poking fun at him for being single, but you’re so embarrassed and upset with yourself for hurting him that you don’t have the courage to apologize bravely and sincerely. How can you make things right?
  • Someone you once considered close has in recent years become cold and judgmental, though you can’t point to any event that would constitute a falling out. Others in your circle have noticed, so you’re pretty sure it’s not just you. What can you do to get to the bottom of this?
  • What’s the best way to cope with the psychological toll of starting and running your own business? (Thanks to Brian Clark from Copyblogger for fielding this one!)
  • You consider yourself pretty genuine, so should you even be attempting to network with people you don’t like just because they’re decent connections within your industry?
  • A friend has become annoyingly needy and narcissistic since breaking off an engagement. How can you break it to them that their behavior has become unacceptable without being heartless?

01:02:40

Jamie Metzl (@JamieMetzl) is a technology futurist and geopolitical expert, entrepreneur, media commentator, Senior Fellow of the Atlantic Council, and author of Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity.

What We Discuss with Jamie Metzl:

  • Why the speed at which genetic engineering is progressing is akin to Neil Armstrong stepping foot on the moon just six years after the first flight of the Wright brothers.
  • Why the genetic traits that seem universally beneficial to us today may turn out to be as ephemeral (and useful to humanity) as powdered wigs and skinny jeans.
  • The danger our species faces when we’re able to selectively edit out genes that cause disorders without fully understanding their potential benefits or evolutionary purpose (e.g., recessive sickle cell disease carriers’ resistance to malaria).
  • Why China — run by a government that values the good of the country over the rights and privacy of its citizens — is better poised than the US and other Western countries to excel in the application of genetic science.
  • Why addressing the values of equity and diversity today is important for avoiding genetic stagnation and greater friction between the haves and have-nots of tomorrow.
  • And much more…

  • Some of the most common barriers to creativity and our pursuit of creative outlets or careers and how to work past these barriers.
  • Why creativity is a habit, not a skill, and what we can do to cultivate this creativity with practice.
  • How even Chase has experienced creative slumps, and what he did to dig himself out of them.

251: Help! I Have Two Years Left to Live. | Feedback Friday
00:59:52

Major life changes can be a mixed bag. On one hand, you're over the moon for landing your dream job. On the other hand, being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer and told by your doctor that you've got two years to live (at best) puts a bit of a damper on the celebration. You're determined to remain positive -- after all, you wouldn't be the first to beat fatalistic odds if this thing were somehow turned around, so there's no harm in being hopeful. You wouldn't say you're lost, but you do want to ensure that you make the most of whatever time you have left -- however long that may be. We can only imagine what you're going through, but on this Feedback Friday we'll do our best to offer how we might spend our time if confronted with the worst news possible -- but armed with your incredibly deep well of positivity.

And in case you didn’t already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

  • How do you make the most of the time you have left with positivity when doctors have given you two years to live?
  • People have preferences about looks, personalities, and religious backgrounds for their significant others. Is wishing they hadn’t slept with 100 people before you a valid preference?
  • What does it take for a successful and single 51-year-old woman who travels frequently to find someone with whom to build a family when the dating pool of quality candidates seems so microscopic?
  • While a policy to never pursue romance with a professional connection has served you well in the past, you’ve met someone who makes you want to reconsider this policy. How might you make your interest known while remaining professional?
  • You’d like to improve the relationship with your parents and the way you communicate. What can you do to make things better?
  • If you wanted to start a new business online without using the topics of your current or past expertise, how would you pick a niche and establish your credibility? (Thanks to Brian Clark from Copyblogger for fielding this one!)
  • While you’ll be laid off soon, you’re not worried because you have a generous severance and plenty of leads already. How do you network without people assuming you’re just trying to get a job through their connections?
  • Aside from buying decent mics...

250: Nir Eyal | Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life
01:02:45

Nir Eyal (@nireyal) is a behavioral designer who helps companies design products that move people, and helps people design their own behavior using the principles of consumer psychology. He is the author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. This is Nir's second appearance on the show (check out his first time here).

What We Discuss with Nir Eyal:

  • Why time management is quite literally pain management, and the time you plan to waste is not wasted time.
  • How the issues caused by technology today aren't dissimilar to the issues caused by technology that vexed Aristotle and Socrates thousands of years ago.
  • Why you'll probably find the popular advice to try digital detox as a way to rid yourself of technology's influence over your life about as effective as a fad diet.
  • The damage caused by accepting the media's spin on technology as a pervasive addiction over which we have no control, and what we can do to get the best of these tools without letting them get the best of us.
  • How to nurture your child's healthy relationship with technology by empowering them with an understanding of its opportunity costs.
  • And much more...

00:47:25

Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) is most known for his 20 years on the basketball court as one of the game's most iconic legends.

What We Discuss with Kobe Bryant:

  • What creativity and basketball have in common and what Kobe has carried from the court to his new business.
  • Lessons Kobe has learned from people who are the best at what they do — from Taylor Swift to Jony Ive to Sean Penn to Kate Winslet to Larry Moss to Oprah to George R.R. Martin.
  • How Kobe manages pressure in high stakes situations on the court and at the head of a creative content studio.
  • The music that gets Kobe in the mindset he needs to excel at whatever he does.

248: How to Navigate Around a Hostile Coworker | Feedback Friday
01:12:06

You have a hostile coworker undermining you before management at every opportunity. How can you ensure facts will speak up for you instead of your coworker's toxic fabrications? Never fear! We'll show you how to navigate around a hostile coworker on this Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • A Detroit vagrant in his 40s probably has enough problems to deal with. Can any good come from pressing charges against him because he tried (and failed) to steal your laptop?
  • You have a hostile coworker undermining you before management at every opportunity. How can you ensure facts will speak up for you instead of your coworker's toxic fabrications?
  • You hear of coworkers getting a promotion because they're "smart." What does it mean to be smart? Is being smart related to IQ? Is it related to emotional intelligence? Is it related to street smarts? Or is it a combination of all of these?
  • As a business owner in a new country who's pioneered your own niche, how do you avoid a race to the bottom in pricing and remain high in quality as competition attempts to elbow into your turf?
  • Is it ever good to name drop when networking?
  • How can you continue to network and problem solve for your peers, but also start to lay the foundation of credibility with your accomplishments to build future -- and likely new leadership positions -- at your company?
  • You reached out to someone in your chosen field, and you were referred to two others who have agreed to meet with you. How can you use the FEW technique effectively when these meetings happen?
  • Is it worth the ROI to obtain expensive credentials (like an MBA) early in your career? Or is charging forward to gain experience more beneficial?
  • Life Pro Tip: When you get a scammy/spammy phone call, tell them: "I think you have the wrong number...this is a government office." Alternatively, you can play this sound into the phone to possibly get removed from the system's rotation.

247: Chris Bailey | Hyperfocus Secrets for Better Productivity
01:03:38

Chris Bailey (@chris_bailey) is a productivity expert, host of the Becoming Better Podcast, and the bestselling author of two books about productivity: Hyperfocus, and The Productivity Project. In the time it's taken you to read this, he's probably written another.

What We Discuss with Chris Bailey:

  • The neurochemical reason our brains switch focus every 40 seconds (or less) and what we can do to recapture this hit to our overall productivity.
  • Why giving yourself the time to unfocus productively with what Chris calls scatterfocus is as crucial to your progress as hyperfocus.
  • How Chris harnesses scatterfocus to mull over and solve complicated problems without distraction.
  • What Chris learned by deliberately allowing himself to enter a state of boredom for an hour a day for an entire month (and how he did so creatively).
  • What the attention overload gap is, the problems it can cause, and why we're more susceptible to it than we probably suspect.
  • And much more...

Wendy Behary (@donsanddivas) has been training professionals and supervising psychotherapists for more than 20 years, and is the author of Disarming the Narcissist: Surviving and Thriving with the Self-Absorbed.

What We Discuss with Wendy Behary:

  • What's the difference between someone who comes off as somewhat self-absorbed and a full-blown, clinical narcissist?
  • Is clinical narcissism actually on the rise in the US? If so, what’s causing it?
  • Does narcissism statistically affect men more than women, or is there just a difference in how they tend to express it?
  • When a little bit of narcissism can be a big advantage.
  • How to tell early on if you’re dealing with a bona fide narcissist, what you can do to remain your best self in their presence, and how you might possibly help them become their better selves.
  • And much more...

245: Is Your Boyfriend Cheating on You with Porn? | Feedback Friday
01:01:15

When your significant other agreed to stop watching porn early in your relationship, you were relieved. But now that you've been dating for a few years and everything's otherwise great, you can't shake the feeling that they haven't quite given up porn and it feels like a betrayal. Is porn cheating? On this Feedback Friday, we do our best to get some perspective on this and much more!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/245.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Due to your own complicated history, your significant other's possible consumption of porn feels like betrayal. Is there a way to understand it from a different perspective?
  • You spent six years training for your dream job only to be disqualified on a technicality. How can you motivate yourself to endure a similar time sink for another career when you know you're not getting any younger?
  • As a business owner, how do you deal with the deadbeats who take advantage of your good nature and don't respect what you do enough to give you fair value for your services?
  • How do people transition from the period of time they need to get experience in their field to the time they get paid for making use of that experience?
  • Your significant other wants you to list the names of the people you've dated and slept with in the past, and then delete them all from your social media. Is this at all reasonable?
  • You assumed you were having an email conversation regarding a business proposition with a man you know named Sam, but it turns out it's been with a woman named Sam whom you don't remember meeting. Now what?
  • You're normally a great conversationalist, but when it comes to interacting with a superior, you find yourself worrying too much about accidentally saying the wrong thing and the conversation ends up stagnating. How might you overcome this?
  • Life Pro Tip: Looking to cut the cord but dreading the inevitable call to the cable company where they badger you into not leaving? Tell them you're moving out of state where they don't offer services. Your cancellation call will take a fraction of the time.

  • The potential for synthetic biology to be leveraged by nihilistic mass murderers to wipe out millions.
  • The potential for synthetic biology to be leveraged by altruistic medical pioneers to save millions.
  • What CRISPR is and how its eventual availability to hobbyists may ensure there's a mad scientist on every block.
  • Why the future of synthetic biology may be exponentially more dangerous to humanity than the nuclear proliferation of the Cold War.
  • What we can start doing now to prepare for this future and minimize its risks while reaping its rewards.

242: How to Make Your Mark on the World at 50 | Feedback Friday
00:58:59

You've made it to what some would consider middle age -- in spite of stumbling over every possible mistake along the way. But instead of enjoying your triumph over the odds, you can't shake the feeling that it's past time to get off the hamster wheel and make a difference.

  • You’ve made it to age 50 and feel like a frustrated nobody, fearful of never leaving your mark on the world. How can you turn things around?
  • Your spouse of three years is just now telling you about their massive debt. How can you be supportive without ransacking your own savings?

He is the host of the Future State Podcast and co-author of The Fifth Domain: Defending Our Country, Our Companies, and Ourselves in the Age of Cyber Threats.

What We Discuss with Richard Clarke:

  • How we're in constant low-grade cyber conflict with Russia, China, Iran, and other adversarial nation states -- and the forms this can take.
  • Cyber crime was a $600 billion industry (one percent of global GDP) in 2018, much of it perpetrated by rogue nations like North Korea.
  • How cyberattacks can be (and have been) used to wreak physical damage on infrastructure, and why we should take them as seriously as traditional weaponry.
  • Is it the government's job to protect private companies against cyberattacks from foreign powers, or is it up to private companies to be responsible for their own safety?
  • Why there's a crisis-level shortage of cybersecurity expertise coming out of our country's most serious tech schools, and where it's being found instead.
  • And much more...

239: How to Ensure Your Authority Is Respected | Feedback Friday
01:02:23

At work, you're the youngest person on the team -- but you've also been there longer than anyone else. Your boss (who lives in another state) refers to you as his site lead, but you don't have an official title to reflect this. Your group needs the organization you know you can offer, but you don't want to come off as a power-hungry usurper. How do you get your boss to clarify your role -- to you and the team? On this Feedback Friday, we'll try to show you how to ensure your authority is respected.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

  • Are there any online courses or coaches specialized in social skills we would recommend for making conversation and connection easier?
  • You're worried you don't come across as friendly. How can you improve your outer emotional reaction to people without feeling like you're overacting and being fake?
  • Your boss communicates with you as if you're in a leadership position, but you feel like you have no authority. Do you need to ask him to clarify your role -- to you and your team?
  • Is sharing photos useful when you're reconnecting with someone you haven't seen in a while, and is there networking value in alumni associations?
  • You tend to forget the lessons you learn from audiobooks after a couple of months. What is the best way to memorize and apply the key takeaways of these books?
  • What are the logistics of carrying on a successful long-distance relationship with a significant other whose sister doesn't like you and will probably undermine you from afar?
  • You want to start a family, but your spouse's fertility issues may prevent this. Additionally, they're averse to therapy that might help lessen the impact or present options if you receive bad news. How can you be as supportive as possible?
  • Life Pro Tip: Buy daily necessities in bulk when they're on sale, and pay close attention to unit prices!
  • Recommendation of the Week: Losing Sight of Shore
  • A quick shoutout to Becky, Robin, and all of the women's college volleyball players who listen to the show!

He's the author of Combating Cult Mind Control: The Guide to Protection, Rescue, and Recovery from Destructive Cults and the founder of the Freedom of Mind Resource Center. This is part one of a two-part episode (part two coming soon).

What We Discuss with Steven Hassan:

  • How to use Steven’s BITE model to tell if you or someone you love is involved in a destructive cult through control of behavior, information, thought, and emotion.
  • The four types of destructive cults most prevalent today: commercial, religious, political, and self-help.
  • How cults have weaponized the Internet and social media to fill their ranks and thrive as never before possible.
  • Why it’s the people who believe themselves immune to (i.e., too smart for) cult indoctrination who are most at risk of being targeted and recruited.
  • How Steven has refined Ted Patrick’s invasive cult deprogramming tactics of the ’70s into a more effective strategic interactive approach.

236: How to Quit Your Dream Job Gracefully | Feedback Friday
01:14:41

You and your spouse recently decided to move back to your small hometown after giving the big city a try and deciding it's just not for you. But the problem is: you're going to have to give up the job you love, with benefits and more of a salary than you've ever made elsewhere. On top of that, the company is currently paying for you to finish school, so there may be legal consequences if you ditch them on graduation day. So in this Feedback Friday, we'll try to show you how to quit your dream job gracefully.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/236.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Is it unreasonable for you to tell friends and family that you don't support MLM companies, won't host their parties, and won't buy their products? Or is there a softer, more effective approach?
  • You recently broke up with your significant other of 15 months, but feel guilty because they gave up their chance to start their MBA in anther city to be with you. Are you a terrible person who made a selfish decision?
  • Your spouse wants to move the family out of the big city and back to your hometown, but it means leaving a job you love that has invested in your education. How do you gracefully part ways while causing the least impact and without burning any bridges?
  • You did a digital detox after listening to our episode with Cal Newport, and want to limit your seven-year-old's exposure to devices after hearing our episode with Jonathan Haidt. How do you ensure you're not just making the wrong thing more appealing?
  • You moved to another country five years ago and have been working menial jobs, learning the language, and taking classes for fun. Now you're ready to take your career seriously, but your resume might be hard to explain. How to proceed?
  • You've lost your motivation, confidence, and self-esteem after quitting a job under a manipulative boss, and your dreams of landing a better job are stalled after submitting hundreds of applications with no calls back. How do you give yourself the kick-in-the-ass, tough self-love pep talk you drastically need?
  • After a few years of accepting sponsored links and posts for your blog, you ended up owning your own link placement agency. This is now what you do full time and you earn more than you ever have before, but you know it's just a matter of time before Google smacks you down. How can you find time to start a more legit business before this happens?
  • You would love to start your own podcast and YouTube channel. You have a great topic, lots of ideas, and contacts for people you could have on the show. Should you work on both the podcast and YouTube or just focus on one?
  • What's the most interesting experience you've ever had? Safari? helicopter tour of a waterfall in venezuela? I'd love to know. Looking at a bucket list. The books on this are all lame because...

  • What's the difference between a porter and a sherpa?
  • How does David live a life balanced between investment, climbing, flying, and running?

  • And much more...

01:11:31

People rarely admit to enjoying small talk, but that's because so few of us are actually very good at it. Luckily, FEW is also a convenient-to-remember acronym for Facts, Emotions, Why -- a foolproof formula for leading small talk that can yield big results. Find out how in this Feedback Friday!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • When your friend repeatedly sends five-minute voice messages that a 10-second text would convey, how do you drive home the point that ain't nobody got time for that?
  • Congrats on quitting social media! But now what do you do with your spare two- to five-minute intervals you used to spend tweeting or reading Facebook? Glad you asked!
  • How can somebody in a quaint but underdeveloped town find improv and behavioral classes to improve their skills and up their game on personal and professional fronts?
  • Is it opportunistic to leverage interest other companies have shown in recruiting you when it's time to negotiate for a raise -- even when you planned to stick around anyway?
  • Even though you consider yourself social and find your spouse's friends a delight, they seem to think you don't like them. How can you dispel their concerns and let your real feelings shine through?
  • You've broken up with your significant other of four years for once again lying to you, but you feel guilty because they've been in therapy for the past six months trying to be better. What next?
  • Your usually calm and cool significant other will be taking the bar exam soon, and a lot of things are up in the air until it's passed. How can you express support without getting in the way?
  • When you've lost trust in your business partner, what steps can you take to ensure you're not on the hook for 100 percent of the company's debt if things go even further south?
  • Life Pro Tip: Drowning in debt from that unexpected hospital visit? Medical billing departments will often accept a fraction of what you "owe."

  • What we might do to begin reeling in this lopsided power structure from its offshore roots in a way that benefits the fair-playing majority.

  • You try to be positive, but when your longtime coworker is negative, pessimistic, petty, and literally stinky, how obligated are you to put up with it?
  • You try to be positive, but when your longtime roommate is a deadbeat trying to move their online romantic interest in, how obligated are you to put up with it?
  • You’re an effortless jack of all trades, but a master of none. Should you be more motivated to excel, or just grateful for what you have and enjoy life?
  • How do you get your extended family to understand that you and your spouse’s busy entrepreneurial lifestyle makes free time a valuable resource?
  • As a freelancer, how do you manage (mentally and financially) the slow growth periods of the year?

  • Thanks to DNA testing, you’ve discovered your mother’s been lying to you about the identity of your father for 40 years. How do you cope with this bombshell?
  • Life Pro Tip: Before giving a previous job as reference, have a friend pretending to be a potential employer call them asking about you — this way you avoid derailing your job hunt.

How can you delete Facebook without becoming persona non grata in your circle of family and friends, and since when did social media become mandatory for your very existence in their eyes?

  • The steps being taken to comprehend what makes biological systems fail in order to improve their capabilities.

01:14:34

Matt McCarthy (@drmattmccarthy) is an assistant professor of medicine at Weill Cornell, a staff physician at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and the author of Superbugs: The Race to Stop an Epidemic.

What We Discuss with Matt McCarthy:

  • How antibiotics are abused on a large scale by industrial agriculture, prescription-happy doctors, and mysophobic hand washers.
  • Why antibiotic abuse is resulting in the fast-track evolution of once easily vanquished bacteria into superbugs from which we have no known protection.
  • How herd immunity works, and why you may be at risk for contracting a once-eradicated disease thanks to anti-vaccination propaganda.
  • Why the FDA approval process takes so long for new drugs to safely come to market, and how this hinders innovation in a profit-driven pharmaceutical market.
  • How genetic editing through new CRISPR technology may be our best hope for quickly reacting to rapidly adapting superbugs.
  • And much more…

221: How to Meet the Parents Without a Meltdown | Feedback Friday
01:05:37

You and your significant other of six months planned on using your parents' vacation home for a romantic weekend getaway together, but now your parents have decided to join you. The problem: your parents and significant other haven't met yet. You're confident they'll get along great, but you want to make sure you set up the occasion for the best chance of success. Here's our take on how your significant other can meet the parents without a meltdown.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • What's the right way to introduce your significant other to the parents when you'll unexpectedly be vacationing together soon?
  • After basically being raised by wolves, how can you build a healthy cleaning schedule or routine? Is it just about learning how to establish new habits?
  • Your best friend's ex-girl didn't used to be yours, but you'd like it if she could be. What are the pros and cons of exploring the possibility?
  • You have no interest in having kids, so when is the right time to bring it up in the dating cycle so you're not wasting anyone's time or being presumptuous?
  • How might Jordan calculate the way he asks a guest questions during an interview to prompt answers that haven't been given on a dozen other podcasts?

220: Deep Dive | The Right Way to Cultivate Abundance
00:58:44

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive into what it takes to cultivate the mindset of abundance that seemingly makes generosity possible, and how to overcome the evolutionary blips in our programming that make it so counterintuitive.

"And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney

What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi:

  • Why the mindset of scarcity is your survival mode default that urges you to see the world as a zero sum game and hoard your resources accordingly.
  • What you can do to reconcile this scarcity mindset with one of abundance that seemingly permits you to give generously without remorse.
  • How you can begin practicing the behavior of generosity even before you've fully sold yourself on the belief of abundance.
  • The many ways that tiny repetitions of generosity act to strengthen the muscles of abundance with giant gains.
  • A smattering of good advice for cultivating abundance, and (we hope) an abundance of even better advice for making generosity second nature.
  • And much more...

218: How to Renegotiate with a Bait-and-Switch Employer | Feedback Friday
00:50:36

When a longstanding policy — whether official or not — was a serious tipping point in the decision to accept your current job, are you right to feel like you’ve gotten the old bait-and-switch treatment when it’s axed nine months after you started? If so, how do you engage leadership to renegotiate terms? We’ll tackle this and more on this Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn’t already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let’s dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/218.

On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • If your not-so-close family members are unapologetically crummy to you and your fiance, is it time to cut them out of your life?
  • When you don’t click with people your own age, what are the pros and cons of dating someone 17 years older than you?
  • Nine months ago, you chose your job over other offers because it had flexible perks that are now being axed. How do you engage leadership to renegotiate terms?
  • While networking in your field, you meet the same people at different events. The problem: you remember them, but they don’t remember you. How can you stand out?
  • You want to leave factory life behind and relocate closer to your kids, but you’re 40 and don’t have the skills for a different job. What’s your best next step?
  • Even though you’re curious about your own genetics, are you right to be wary of the potential privacy concerns that arise from taking a home DNA test?
  • You’re speaking at a conference on behalf of your company where many industry leaders will be attending. How can you best network during your time offstage?
  • You’ve lost respect for a friend who would rather waste their money than repay an old debt. Is this resolvable, or is it time for the friendship to move on?
  • Life Pro Tip: Don’t just thank someone when they do something for you. Tell them what it means to you. Example: Rather than saying “Thanks for the ride,” say “Thanks for the ride! You saved me a bunch of time. You saved me a bunch of phone calls. You saved me a bunch of effort. I really appreciate it!”

217: Matthew Schrier | How to Survive in a Secret Syrian Terrorist Prison
01:51:18

Matt Schrier is an American photographer who survived seven months as an Al-Qaeda captive in Syria before escaping, and the author of The Dawn Prayer: A Memoir.

What We Discuss with Matt Schrier:

  • How Matt Schrier was captured by Al-Qaeda just 45 minutes away from the border on his way out of Syria in 2012.
  • How making his captors laugh on day one of his captivity got him special treatment from a usually unforgiving crowd.
  • What Matt did to survive and plan an escape in spite of an unhelpful, self-sabotaging cellmate.
  • Why Matthew feels betrayed by the FBI and the US government for putting intelligence gathering over the safety of Americans imprisoned by terrorists.
  • Why, even after becoming the first American to escape from Al-Qaeda and his feelings of betrayal from his own government, he has no regrets about going to Syria in the first place.
  • And much more...

What We Discuss with Chelsea Handler:

  • Finding the line between mood enhancement and paranoia-generating abuse when it comes to cannabis.
  • How a DUI at age 21 led to Chelsea's entry into the world of standup comedy, and what she was really trying to get from her search for attention.
  • As someone who's never been afraid to quit a job she's grown tired of doing, what really matters to Chelsea?
  • What's the difference between authentic generosity and generosity that just feeds the giver's ego?
  • Why is Chelsea writing books, doing standup comedy, and working on television projects when she was sure she'd burned out on doing all of these things not long ago?
  • And much more...

215: How to Invest Wisely and Crush Student Debt | Feedback Friday
01:06:51

There's lots of stuff in this one about investing wisely and eradicating debt -- especially student debt -- thanks to some professional help from our all-star, money-ninja accountant Matt Rzepka, along with the usual questions about everything else we get here on Feedback Friday.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/215.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • You judge people quickly, won't suck up to authority, and have a reputation as being unapproachable. What's really going on, and are you stuck this way?
  • You're a frugally living 37-year-old doctor swimming in med school debt. Should you put all your money into saving and investments or toward extra loan repayment?
  • For someone with student loan debt just starting out in their career, what is the best move for financial freedom? Should you pay off debt, invest, build savings, or acquire assets?
  • Early in med school with many years of debt ahead, is it still worth it to be locking your money up and committing to your monthly index fund?
  • Your network connection is great at opening doors, but lackluster in work ethic. Is there a way to inoffensively compensate them for opening those doors without involving them in the actual job that results?
  • Are you really offended when an entertainer (say, a podcaster) openly expresses their political views, or are you just offended when their political views seem to differ from yours?
  • How can you stop giving in to your need for instant gratification and become a productive member of society when you lack discipline and think the world's ending anyway?
  • Life Pro Tip: If you volunteer to give up your seat on an overbooked flight, don't just take the first offer. Tell the gate agent, "Toss in another $200+/- and I'll go for it." They'll almost always agree, because a willing volunteer is worth it. And if they offer you a meal voucher, ask for a day pass to their first class club instead. It will have food plus other amenities!

Gabriel Weinberg (@yegg) is a serial entrepreneur, angel investor, founder of privacy-protecting search engine DuckDuckGo, and coauthor of Super Thinking: The Big Book of Mental Models.

What We Discuss with Gabriel Weinberg:

  • What are mental models, and how can they be applied to make your life run more efficiently and effectively?
  • How mental models used primarily in physics, economics, biology, and math can be easily adjusted for everyday decisions.
  • What a South American tribe that can only count to three and our own grade school experiences with multiplication tables can teach us about the power of math as a mental model.
  • Why you should be second-guessing your natural intuition during the decision-making process, and how you can use mental models to do it.
  • First principles versus conventional wisdom for approaching familiar situations in an innovative way.
  • And much more...

212: How to Live with Unwashed Loved Ones | Feedback Friday
01:31:04

Are you a germaphobe if it creeps you out when your spouse and in-laws don't wash their hands after using the bathroom, or is your disgust actually reasonable and justified? If getting divorced and burning down the house aren't options, we'll tell you how to live with unwashed loved ones on this Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/212.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Thanks to an accidental glance at their phone, you suspect one of your parents might be cheating on your other parent. What do you do now?
  • You've noticed your significant other and in-laws don't wash their hands after using the bathroom. As a germaphobe, how do you reconcile love with the disgust you're feeling?
  • Though your trustworthy significant other insists the condoms you found in their car were bought before you agreed to stop using them, it's bothering you. Should you let the issue go?
  • How can you deal with the anxiety of starting your own business and accepting the risks and potential setbacks while giving it your all?
  • How do you intentionally work your way toward connecting with super influential people like Reid Hoffman when you're just getting started in your networking efforts?
  • Your stay-home spouse admitted recently that they are lonely. How do you foster friendships as an adult -- especially when you have infants to take care of?
  • The VP of your company wants to advance you, yet worries you may be too young or inexperienced for a higher-up position. What can you do to convince them you're ready for the position?
  • You have a somewhat manipulative boss who is taking a new job and wants to bring you along. Should you take this as an opportunity to continue your professional relationship, or is it just time to move on from his erratic reign?
  • Life Pro Tip: If you can’t decide between two items of clothing (like two different jackets), have someone take photos of you with them on (front and back), and then look at the photos.
  • Recommendation of the Week: The Black Godfather

211: Arthur Brooks | How Loving Your Enemies Can Save America
01:39:35

Arthur Brooks (@arthurbrooks) is a social scientist, Washington Post columnist, president of the American Enterprise Institute, and author of Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt.

What We Discuss with Arthur Brooks:

  • Why happiness relies on being mindful of what you have right now instead of comparing yourself to others who have what you want.
  • A disheartening statistic: One in six Americans has stopped talking to a family member or close friend entirely because of politics.
  • How gratitude can be used as an anesthetic for contempt.
  • Why a healthy society elevates authoritative leaders in search of cooperation for the greater good over coercive leaders who bully their way toward short-term results.
  • Why we should commit not to be -- or interact with people who hide behind being -- anonymous on the Internet.
  • And much more...

209: How to Trick Your Teenager into Following Good Advice | Feedback Friday
01:10:34

You’d love for your teenager to listen to this show and learn some life advice by proxy instead of having to endure it in real time like you did, but it seems unlikely. Why are teenagers so stubbornly opposed to parental wisdom? We can’t say for sure, but we do have some tricks for making them follow good advice against their own bratty proclivities.

And in case you didn’t already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let’s dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/209.

On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • When your main squeeze is giving you the turd degree for having one crappy day, perhaps something else stinks about your relationship. Should you dump them?
  • Your professor drops your final grade if you don’t bring a doctor’s note for absences, but doesn’t suffer consequences when they miss a class. Should you bring up this double standard?
  • Your significant other failed classes early in school thanks to social anxiety, but has since improved. Is it dishonest to prop up a low GPA on a resume by specifying the higher GPA of their major?
  • How do you impart what you’ve learned from this show to your teenager, who is unlikely to listen to the show directly?
  • Is it worth cultivating one-sided friendship with people who seem only interested in talking about themselves and their problems?
  • Life Pro Tip: It might seem common knowledge, but make proper backups of all your data — not once a year but at least once a month.
  • Recommendations of the Week: Business of Being Born and Good Fortune
  • A quick shoutout to Jackie Jones!

  • What it takes to gather the data points necessary for unpacking the secret subtext of indirect feedback.
  • How we can steer into good crises to strengthen relationships and better our circumstances.
  • What running Dungeons & Dragons and RuneQuest campaigns taught Reid about complex human motivations and the power of heroic collaboration.

01:09:35

Reid Hoffman (@reidhoffman) is a cofounder of LinkedIn, investor at Greylock Partners, host of the podcast Masters of Scale, and coauthor of Blitzscaling: The Lightning-Fast Path to Building Massively Valuable Companies.

What We Discuss with Reid Hoffman:

  • Why creating the best products and services on the market won't mean squat if you don't have the network to get the word out about them.
  • Reid's flexible planning framework that adjusts navigation to suit the unexpected path rather than the imagined destination.
  • How to know when you're informing your intuition with the best available data or just procrastinating to avoid making important decisions.
  • Why "never give up" is terrible advice, and how to separate your winning instincts from your losing ideas.
  • Why an honest partner is almost always your best source of ideas -- and a reminder of where the road paved with the best intentions usually leads.
  • And much more...

206: How to Disappear from an Unstoppable Stalker | Feedback Friday
00:56:04

Getting a stalker to drop their obsession with you is seldom as simple as just telling them to go away -- if anything, that might just make the problem worse. So what can you do? In this Feedback Friday, we'll try to show you how to disappear from an unstoppable stalker without escalating an already bad situation.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/206.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • How do you get a mentally ill stalker -- who seems to track you down no matter how many precautions you take -- to leave you alone for good?
  • What should you do when your long-term significant other is an alcoholic in denial who regularly drinks themselves into becoming someone you don't like?
  • You had a breakup because you couldn't commit to marriage after 2.5 years. You want to wait until you're 100 percent ready, but when will that happen?
  • With Jordan in Silicon Valley and Jason in Los Angeles, how do we seamlessly make it sound like we're in the same room for Feedback Friday episodes?
  • After multiple attempts to make it work with your Narcissistic Personality Disorder diagnosed ex, how do you truly move on and work on yourself?
  • You've been mulling over the basics of starting a product-based business. What should you worry about now and what could be put off for later?
  • While reaching out by text to dusty connections per our free Six-Minute Networking course, how do you know when it's time to make a graceful exit from the conversation?
  • There's no doubt that finding a coach to help you through anything personal or professional can be valuable -- but how do you find the right coach?
  • Life Pro Tip: Budget $20-50 for a "just because" gift each month to someone.

205: Deep Dive | What to Do When Your Purpose Starts to Suck
01:11:36

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive into how even the most driving purpose can wear you down, why meaning doesn't always align with happiness, and what you can do to recalibrate your purpose when you're discouraged by the obstacles you face in its pursuit.

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/205

What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi:

  • Why meaning doesn't automatically create happiness, and happiness isn't required to create meaning.
  • Why, if you're doing it right, pursuing your purpose should make you miserable from time to time.
  • The key upsides to embracing the difficulty of your purpose and how it drives you toward your best work.
  • How to focus on the micro over the macro in order to keep you connected to your purpose when you're having your doubts.
  • Understanding that discipline is knowing when to think about certain issues; denial is refusing to think about them at all.

What We Discuss with Scott Galloway:

  • How American priorities have shifted from a society that creates millions of millionaires to one that idolizes individuals worth the GDP of Norway.
  • Why the opportunities Scott and earlier generations enjoyed are no longer available to the majority of the population today.
  • How Scott can predict if a young person will be successful by the time he or she is 30 (and what you can do to give yourself an edge if you're not on the path).
  • Why striving for work/life balance and following your passion aren't ideal strategies if you aspire toward great wealth.

200: How to Deal with Retroactive Jealousy | Feedback Friday
00:57:53

You're having issues with retroactive jealousy regarding your significant other's past. You've tried to find resources to help you cope with this, but most of what's you've found feels gimmicky with little to no real information or exercises aimed at helping you overcome these feelings. In this Feedback Friday, we'll try to lend a helping hand.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Your parents are first cousins, and it's a secret not many know -- including your significant other with whom you're building a life. Are you obligated to share this?
  • Creeps offering to rub your realtor girlfriend's feet for $500 isn't the side hustle she was hoping for; how do you ensure she's safe when meeting clients in empty houses?
  • You love your job, but you don't love the corporate culture and lengthy commute. When is the right time or the wrong time to trade one company for another?
  • How do you go about asking for the raise you know you deserve (especially as more tasks are being assigned your way) without jeopardizing your current position?
  • You've been using our free Six-Minute Networking course, but have a few questions about some of the details. We're here to help!
  • Is Better Help cheaper than in-office therapists, and is it covered by traditional work health options? How do you evaluate it from a budget priority standpoint?
  • You're trying to prove your value during your company's review period, but one of your overseers seems closed-minded to your process. What's your best move forward?
  • Even though you don't consider yourself possessive, you have intense bouts of retroactive jealousy regarding your partner's not-that-sordid past. How do you move past it?
  • Pro Tip of the Week: Instead of saying 'my ex,' say 'a guy/girl I dated.' 'My ex' insinuates that person is still a part of your life.
  • Recommendation of the Week: Chernobyl on HBO
  • A quick shoutout to Liam from the UK!

Mark Manson (@iammarkmanson) is a blogger, entrepreneur, and author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life and his latest, Everything Is F*cked: A Book About Hope.

What We Discuss with Mark Manson:

  • How acknowledging the uncomfortable truth of human existence’s meaninglessness can ultimately serve as an argument against nihilism.
  • What the paradox of purpose tells us about the stress that accompanies an overwhelming abundance of choice.
  • How the feeling brain and the thinking brain might seem at odds, but they actually conspire to guide our values (for better or worse).
  • Why your identity will stay your identity until a new experience acts against it, and how you can change your values to fit your current narrative instead of one that’s outdated.
  • What the God value is and how it aligns your hierarchy of values by way of the feeling brain.
  • And much more...

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • You're clinging to a marriage that seems, by all indications, on its way out. How do you overcome the feelings of isolation and loneliness?

Moby (@thelittleidiot) is a musician, singer, songwriter, producer, animal rights activist, and author of Then It Fell Apart.

What We Discuss with Moby:

  • Why, in his early fifties, Moby has not one but two memoirs under his belt.
  • What it was like to grow up as a latchkey kid, impoverished and on food stamps, in the wealthiest city in the United States.
  • Why Moby "was so happy" during the time he lived in an abandoned factory on the crack-infested side of Stamford, Connecticut.

194: How to Be the Best Podcast Guest in the West | Feedback Friday
01:08:57

Being a podcast host has its own set of dos and don'ts, but what does it take to be the best podcast guest in the west -- and east and all points in between? What will ensure that you're the podcast guest who gets invited back time and time again rather than thrown onto the booking agent's "do not call" pile? We've recruited our friend Bobbi Rebell of The Financial Grownup Podcast to give us the skinny.

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Is undergoing cosmetic surgery to correct a physical trait that makes you insecure 24/7 a worthwhile investment or submission to excessive vanity?
  • As a manager, you love your company, salary, and benefits, but your passion isn't developing others to do their best. Without a college degree, what are your options?
  • One parent died from being in a medicine-shunning cult, and the other has a history of being abusive toward you. Should the loss of one automatically mend your issues with the other?
  • Is it reasonable to put your therapy visits on hold during a new job's six-month probationary period for better chance of retention?
  • You're facing prison and losing your job for being pulled over with less than a fifth of a gram of weed in your car (even though you weren't under the influence). How can you find the motivation to move on?
  • You left a part-time job you loved for a full-time job that pays more but doesn't enchant you in the same way. How do you know if you made the right decision?
  • When you're a guest on someone's podcast, how do you ensure they love you and invite you back -- and maybe make you a regular? Our friend Bobbi Rebell of The Financial Grownup Podcast has answers!
  • You're friendly and nice on the inside, but your face and body don't translate that message. How can you come across as less chilly when trying to network?
  • You got a no-strings-attached monetary gift from a kind person in your wind ensemble to repair your instrument, and you have $50 left over. What's the protocol for gracefully returning it?
  • Life Pro Tip: When your power goes out, pop your phone open and search for Wi-Fi in the area. If the list is empty or shorter than usual, then it's not just you that lost power. Another tip is to get a cheap UPS on Amazon to power your cable modem and Wi-Fi router. That way if the power does go out in your neighborhood, you can get online and figure out...

191: How to Out a Psycho Ex for Public Safety | Feedback Friday
01:09:47

Outing a psycho ex who once violently assaulted you might seem like a mission of personal vindication that you’d like to feel is beneath you.

  • How can you learn to be more understanding and less stubborn?
  • How do you deal with a friend who dominates conversations, lacks self-awareness, and is overly sensitive?
  • Since you often have to travel for work, how do you negotiate with your boss on staying a few extra days for vacation?

185: How to Get Hired Like a Boss | Feedback Friday
01:16:58

Ever wondered how to get hired like a boss? Ramit Sethi (@ramit) of I Will Teach You to Be Rich joins us for this Feedback Friday to illustrate something called The Briefcase Technique, which you can use to powerfully demonstrate value to connections in your network and potential employers. As Ramit says, "The way to stand out is to not just tell people what you would do, but show them."

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now let's dive in!

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/185.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • How do you keep your mother from bringing her awful date -- who also happens to be your father -- to your best friend's wedding?
  • You could retire early and enjoy time off, but you don't want to get stuck finding a new job if you get bored in a couple of years. What to do?
  • You have questions and concerns while building a new house. How do you avoid ticking off the contractors to the point of sabotage?
  • How do successful people balance between work they're passionate about, families they adore, and outlets they need to function at an optimal level?
  • The dream job you landed at Harvard would be even dreamier if it paid well enough now to make a dent in your student loans. Should you stay or go?
  • When the real nature of your job doesn't reflect what you thought you signed on for, how do you approach a contract renegotiation gracefully?
  • How do you distinguish yourself from the competition and get hired like a boss or make new network connections stick? Ramit Sethi joins us to illustrate an almost magical tactic called The Briefcase Technique.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Is your significant other right to be upset that you want to spend some of your social time separately?
  • Is spending eight years to switch careers from barber to therapist worthwhile in your mid-forties?
  • Is there anything wrong with hiding the fact that you're in a relationship when you meet new people?
  • You're still young, but your mindless six-figure job is wearing on you. Would it be irresponsible to drop everything and do something else?
  • How can you overcome your intense fear and anxiety around driving? More important: should you?
  • Our listener whose dog was attacked in episode 161 tracked down the human responsible. What's the best next step?
  • Extensive (and very appreciated!) listener advice for helping the hoarders from last Feedback Friday.
  • Do we ever worry that recommending podcasts we enjoy will result in fewer listeners?
  • Life Pro Tip: When your ISP raises your bill, call in and say “cancel service” to the automated operator. You’ll be sent to their retention team. They will usually take $10-20 off your monthly bill for a year. I do this once a year with Comcast.

181: Deep Dive | How to Stop Blaming Other People
01:05:12

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive into why the impulse for blaming other people is a phenomenon familiar to most of us, and how we can curb it in ourselves without defaulting to always taking the fall when it’s undeserved.

What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi:

  • Why the externalization of blaming other people when you're at fault robs you of being truly in control of your own life.
  • Why the internalization of blaming yourself when you're not at fault is just as toxic as externalization.
  • How you can use the Accountability Spectrum to find an appropriate balance between externalization and internalization.
  • What true accountability requires of you and what it gives you in return.
  • The best antidote to blaming.
  • And much more...

What We Discuss with Zvi Band:

  • Why a network is the best way to increase your luck surface area -- the number of chances you have to get lucky when things aren't going your way.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • When you dislike idle chit chat, how do you respond to the small talk question "How's business?" without being uncivil?
  • Is becoming a police officer because you want to help people a good idea for someone who's never really dealt with trauma, or could you be throwing yourself in the deep end?

  • Jake from Intuit stops by to help us cope with financial crises around tax time.
  • How do you beat feeling envious of others who maintain the discipline to see their self-improvements through?
  • When you're serious about networking, should you regularly cull connections on LinkedIn with people you don't really know?

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Is it wrong to be mad at your recently widowed parent for proposing to a rebound fling just six months after the funeral?
  • You're sick of picking up the slack for your 70-year-old coworker who chooses not to retire. What should you do?
  • How do you rebuild your business when your last 10 years has suddenly pulled out from under you? We might have some advice.
  • As a job seeker, when is the right time to disclose that you have regular medical needs that require creative scheduling?
  • We've talked about the wrong reasons to move, but what are some of the right reasons? When do the pros outweigh the cons?
  • How do you shake the feeling of playing second fiddle when you're pretty sure you're the ugly friend in a two-person dynamic?
  • You seem to be the only one in your neighborhood concerned about environmental apocalypse. How do you lead by example without blowing a gasket?
  • What meaningful gifts can you get for mentors -- or anyone else for that matter -- who already seem to have everything they need?
  • Life Pro Tip: When responding to advice, say "You're right" instead of "I know." It shows that you're actually listening to someone, that you care about what they say, and give them credit for trying to help.
  • Recommendation of the Week: Leaving Neverland

01:02:44

What We Discuss with Brian Scudamore:

  • How Brian turned a trash removal business that began with a $700 investment into an international, multimillion dollar service franchise.
  • The $29 gimmick Brian used to prove to his franchise partners they didn't need to spend big bucks on traditional marketing tactics to get their small business known.
  • Why high school dropout Brian didn't sell his business and retire in his 20s -- even when competitors offered him millions of dollars.
  • Brian's WTF (willing to fail) philosophy that has allowed him to harness the smaller failures along the way to avoid ultimate catastrophe in the long run (with examples).
  • Practical exercises you can use -- for entrepreneurship as well as personal enrichment -- to similarly WTF your way forward.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Recently, your daughter's 15-year-old friend got pregnant. Should you keep your daughter away from her?
  • With inoperable stage four pancreatic cancer, your father may not have long to live. How can you fill his remaining time with purpose?
  • How can you be comfortable around someone who seemingly reads your mind by body language, microexpressions, and tonality?
  • While you want to open up around others, social events have you in the corner hiding inside your shell. How can you coax yourself out to mingle?
  • You're in your 30s and you can keep working locally at a safe, consistent job that pays well, but you're really yearning for a chance to live and work abroad. A few years from now, which choice are you most likely to regret not making?
  • The company where you've worked for 15 years has expanded and you'd like to keep working for it -- but on the other side of the country. Should you keep this to yourself until your plans are more concrete, or should you tell your local office boss as soon as possible?
  • You're moving from California to the UK on a plane and you're wisely taking your cat with you in the cabin. But she can be loud when she's nervous; what happens if you wind up sitting next to someone who hates cats? What's the protocol?
  • You knew someone who could have helped you redirect your career momentum, but you've let the connection lapse and now you feel awkward about reconnecting. Is it too late to reach out?
  • Life Pro Tip: Whenever you recall a painfully embarrassing memory, imagine the Seinfeld theme playing over it.
  • Recommendation of the Week: Bohemian Rhapsody

What We Discuss with Clint Watts:

  • How our own cognitive biases are manipulated in an effort to destabilize trust in each other and our very way of life.
  • How hostile entities like ISIS use social media for propaganda and recruitment.
  • Why Western governments can't, even with their relatively infinite wealth of resources, beat ragtag Somali Twitter pirates and ISIS shills.
  • How bias creates social media bubbles, what forms they take, and why this is dangerous.
  • How we can fix these issues or at least mitigate the effect they have on our lives.

  • How do you find a lawyer who will actually get the job you need done and won't break the bank?

00:50:41

Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Teaching your kid how to play chess? Here's a simple way to keep them engaged without crushing their spirits or throwing a single game.
  • When your line of work grants you even a minor level of celebrity, how do you express appreciation when you're recognized without succumbing to awkwardness?
  • How can you work with someone you don't like or respect -- and ensure that you still like and respect yourself in the process?
  • You've been selected to give a graduation speech in front of 2,500 people and want to crush it. What can you do to be as prepared as possible?
  • Someone owns the Web domain you want, but they're not using it. What's the best way to negotiate for it or find a close alternative?
  • When you're in a line of work that doesn't generate repeat customers, what's the best (and least tacky) way to ask for referrals from satisfied past customers?
  • After following the Level One exercises and re-engaging contact with a former mentor, they seem resistant to a catch-up meeting. How might you offer value to make it worthwhile for them?
  • Meeting new people and dating when you have a chronic illness presents numerous challenges, but the biggest might be: when is it appropriate to disclose your condition to a potential relationship partner?
  • Life Pro Tip: Make yourself manually dial some of your more important contacts on occasion so you'll know their numbers if you're ever stuck without your phone.
  • A quick shoutout to Cesar Millan and everyone at The Dog Psychology Center!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Your new neighbor's loud arguments and wild parties at all hours would be annoying enough if they involved multiple people, but the only person who ever seems to be in attendance is her. Should you be concerned enough to inform management -- or the police?
  • When reconnecting with someone in your network (per our Level One exercises), how can you identify ways to add value to their goals?
  • Long-time listeners would understand a covert contract from the contractor's side of things. But what do you do if you suspect someone has a covert contract out on you?
  • Your newest roommate is a slob who pilfers your food and doesn't clean up after himself. What can you do to put your foot down without causing too much contention?
  • With so much motivational and personal development advice being thrown around these days, how can you tell the difference between genuine self-help and utter bullcrap?
  • Without succumbing to the formulaic elevator pitch, how can you politely introduce yourself and make an impression when you're in convenient proximity to your company's higher-ups and decision makers?
  • How might a public school teacher who loves to teach supplement their painfully inadequate income?
  • What thought exercises might help someone on the edge of burning out at their job decide whether to soldier on for the next few months to qualify for a bonus or just quit now and damn the consequences?

  • How a prenatal condition, bullying, a thyroid condition, and toxic mold collaborated to bring Dave's health to a point so low even his doctor couldn't help him.
  • What is your immune system's "memory" forgetting, and what role does mitochondria play in how you feel?
  • What does Dave believe are the top two causes of autoimmunity, and what can we do to guard ourselves when our body can't even identify the enemy?
  • Why does Dave put butter in his coffee instead of milk or cream like normal people, and what's the difference between real Bulletproof coffee and what the small-town cafe on the other side of the world is trying to peddle as "Bulletproof" coffee?

138: Deep Dive | Forget Finding Your Purpose -- Do This Instead
00:51:44

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us to deep dive into the elusive subject of purpose -- why you’re not finding it as easily as the so-called experts say you should be, and why you should be following meaning to purpose instead of picking a purpose and hoping it’s full of meaning. [Featured image by Smart]

What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi:

  • The difference between purpose and meaning.
  • Why reverse-engineering meaning from purpose is harder (and far less effective) than finding purpose through meaning.
  • What an ER nurse taught Gabriel about the surprising ways meaning can manifest.
  • Why you should be suspicious of what The Cult of Purpose is trying to sell you.
  • The best ways to naturally follow meaning to purpose without forcing an expectation of what that purpose is.
  • And much more...

137: Feedback Friday | How to Cope with Remorseful Flirtation
00:54:47

Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Friend of the show and Entrepreneur on Fire John Lee Dumas (@johnleedumas) joins us to help a listener begin anew in a new city.

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • If there's such a thing as remorseful flirtation, how should you feel to be on the receiving end of it?
  • As old-timers who have already been there and done that, how do we recommend you live your twenties to their fullest?
  • The management at your current job barely acknowledges you and it's time to move on. Is it appropriate in this case to give notice by email?
  • Will setting boundaries for your narcissistic sibling have any positive effect on your relationship, or should you just cut them off altogether?
  • What's the best way to bid a fair-weather friend adieu after they've made it clear that visiting you on your almost-deathbed was a real inconvenience?
  • Even though you bounced back from your layoff with a huge pay increase and promotion potential galore, you miss your old team and want to stay on good terms. How do you speed up the healing process to make this possible?
  • When you have a lifelong habit of rejecting people before they reject you -- to the point that you've never dated and you don't have any close friends -- what can you do to become more approachable?
  • When moving to a foreign city to reboot your personal and professional life, what's the best way to put down roots, make new connections, and get your brand noticed?
  • Recommendation of the Week: The American Meme
  • Quick shoutout to Corey Anderson!

134: Feedback Friday | How to Create Meaningful Conversations from Scratch
00:49:51

Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Friend of the show and Entrepreneur on Fire John Lee Dumas (@johnleedumas) joins us to address a common concern of a lot of people have about leaving behind a miserable corporate job to pursue entrepreneurial ambitions.

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • You're at a new job and they've already pegged you as the "quiet" one. But what do they really mean?
  • How do you find a tribe of like-minded, growth-oriented people who don't seem like they're part of some motivational cult?
  • After so many "we should hang outs" without follow-ups, should you just accept that a best friend isn't in the cards for you at this point?
  • With a full-time job, supportive girlfriend, and research papers taking up most of your time, how and where can you find opportunities to grow your skill set?
  • You're young, successful, and ready for a relationship -- but you can't seem to find anyone whose drive goes beyond Netflix and work. Where should you be looking?
  • You're good at chatting when given interesting subjects to talk about, but have no skills in coming up with those subjects. How do you create meaningful conversations from scratch?
  • You've got a great job and a comfortable lifestyle, but you regret never finishing college or following your intended career path. Are you a fool to go back to school?
  • Even though you know the entrepreneurial life is right for you, how do you politely convey to your well-meaning but kind of clueless friends that you're not looking for another corporate job?
  • Recommendation of the Week: Strong Ending -- A Journey from Combat to Comedy
  • Quick shoutouts to Vivek at Google and Michael Clobes!
  • Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us? Drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com!

131: Feedback Friday | How to Know When It's Time to Start a Side Hustle
00:50:18

Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

Friend of the show and Entrepreneur on Fire John Lee Dumas (@johnleedumas) joins us to tackle one of our trickier questions about starting a side hustle!

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Are once-friendly people really avoiding you for some unknown reason, or is their perceived lack of interaction largely in your own socially anxious head?
  • When you're young and in long-distance love but also looking for a new career path, should you follow your heart and move closer to your sweetheart or follow your head and pursue local educational opportunities in your chosen field?
  • What's the most graceful way to turn down a retention bonus without sending a signal to the company you are looking for another job?
  • You're newly single and going to yoga classes. You want to ask out someone who seems to be expressing interest in you, but you also want to respect the yoga space and not tarnish your ongoing practice at this studio. What's the right next move?
  • You've recently been made privy to sensitive information about your clients from a well-meaning but careless business contact. How do you make this contact understand -- without being ungrateful for their effort -- that such information in the hands of someone less ethical could jeopardize their career and the integrity of your organization?
  • Your boss treats you as a liability rather than an asset thanks to fabricated and unsubstantiated accusations made against you in the past, but rumor has it this person is leaving in a few months. Is it worth your time to get this person to see your value, or should you just stay under the radar until the (fingers crossed) new boss arrives on the scene?
  • Your morale is low at your current company, and in spite of skill stacking to position yourself uniquely in any number of other companies, you can't seem to land an interview elsewhere. Is it time to scratch that entrepreneurial itch you've been feeling with at least an honest foray into the side hustle?
  • What can you do to mend the divide between you and someone with whom you shared a relationship when you empathize with why that person isn't exactly the president of your fan club?
  • Recommendation of the Week: The Final Table
  • Quick shoutout to Dr. Brad Block of the Physician's Guide to Doctoring podcast!

130: Srini Rao | Why You Should Reclaim Your Own Creativity
01:07:23

Srini Rao (@unmistakableceo) is the host and founder of the Unmistakable Creative podcast and author of An Audience of One: Reclaiming Creativity for Its Own Sake.

What We Discuss with Srini Rao:

  • How an ADHD diagnosis in his mid-twenties and the inability to hold down a real job forced Srini to develop his own tools and systems for harnessing creativity and boosting production.
  • Why expressing your creativity on a regular basis -- even when it's done without the intention of reaching an audience or being commercially successful -- can be incredibly beneficial to every area of your life.
  • Research shows that being creative can actually make you happier, help you recover from trauma, and increase your productivity.
  • How you can cultivate your own creativity even if you're the type of person who thinks you don't have any to begin with.
  • Why you don't have to be a creative genius or successful artist to take advantage of the creativity-happiness connection.
  • And much more...

Sign up for Six-Minute Networking -- our free networking and relationship development mini course -- at jordanharbinger.com/course! Chris "Drama" Pfaff (@dramadrama) is a former reality TV personality, host of the Short Story Long Podcast, and founder of streetwear clothing line Young and Reckless.

What We Discuss with Chris Pfaff:

  • Why Chris decided to take his skateboard from suburban Akron -- where escaped cows made the evening news -- to Los Angeles, where high-speed car chases barely raise eyebrows.
  • What it's taken so far for Chris to make it in today's cutthroat fashion business climate -- especially when he has to work twice as hard to overcome what others expect from his "dumb" reality TV persona.
  • How to stay tenacious -- like someone raised in the Midwest -- when you fail over and over again.
  • Why sometimes running a business -- even something as fun and exciting as a top-level streetwear brand -- can be more of a curse than a blessing.
  • How Chris feels about regretting something he has done versus regretting something he hasn't done.
  • And much more...

00:50:43

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • When is a cheater no longer a cheater, and when is an addict no longer an addict?
  • If you're going for quality connections over quantity, is meeting four people in two hours at a networking event reasonable?
  • How do you set boundaries when a family member on hard times has overstayed their welcome in your home?
  • Who'd have thought the parents at your kid's new school are more cliquish than their offspring? What can you do to win them over -- or should you?
  • Because you didn't just wait until you were thirsty to dig the well -- you ate a spoonful of salt, too -- how can you recover from job instability when it already seems too late?
  • If you're employed in a full time but unfulfilling job purely for the cash, when is it time to take your side hustle more seriously?
  • Being the trustee of a family trust is hard enough without someone in your own family negotiating like a jerk for more than their fair share. So what would make the situation easier?
  • Recommendation of the Week: The Resurrection of Jake the Snake Roberts
  • Quick shoutout to the guys who got a flat tire in the middle of nowhere and listened to the show for three straight hours while waiting for the tow truck and discussed all of the topics!

127: Deep Dive | How to Overcome Imposter Syndrome
01:07:12

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive into identifying and overcoming imposter syndrome -- the sinking feeling that your accolades are unearned, your successes are undeserved, and you'll be discovered for the fraud you (think you) are at any moment by somebody -- anybody -- more qualified than you (which only seems to be everybody)! [Photo by Steve Lundqvist]

What We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi:

  • Why you're not alone in feeling pangs of imposter syndrome (or imposter experience or imposter phenomenon, depending on who you ask) -- it strikes nearly everyone (even elite athletes and military special forces) from time to time.
  • How to tell the difference between true fraudulence and imposter syndrome -- and act accordingly.
  • The three behaviors that should help you avoid feeling imposter syndrome but counterintuitively tend to reinforce it.
  • The two common beliefs that invite imposter syndrome to visit most frequently.
  • What you can learn from incidents of imposter syndrome to grow more resistant to its eerily convincing distortions of reality.
  • And much more...

125: Feedback Friday | How to Cure PLOM (Poor Little Old Me) Disease
00:42:27

Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Your brother in law is a narcissist with a bad case of PLOM (Poor Little Old Me) Disease and is clearly in the mindset to cheat on your sister -- if he hasn't already. Is it your place to warn her even though it'll devastate the family?
  • Is it your fault that you -- and the rest of your coworkers -- are always disappointing your boss because you never seem to be able to read her mind and discern her intentions?
  • Using the networking skills we teach in Six-Minute Networking, how do you actively develop new contacts?
  • When your current job was able to accommodate your needs in order to retain you, you had to renege on another job offer you had already accepted. How do you reach out to make peace and mend a bridge you never intended to burn?
  • When you have an estranged parent who has only lied to you and disappointed you over the course of your entire life, how should you take their disclosure of a personal tragedy?
  • After graduation, you'll have three months until you start your full-time job. Should you use the money you've saved up through college to travel for those three months, or should you use it to pay your student loans?
  • You work in an office full of people who share political views that widely differ from your own. Should you put up with it quietly, offer your counterpoints, just pretend to agree with them to avoid friction, or look for a new job entirely?
  • When you live in a country overrun by state-driven propaganda, what's the best way to stay informed of real current events so you can critically weigh the evidence and formulate your own views?
  • Recommendation of the Week: Three Identical Strangers

  • How the Internet has exacerbated suicidal tendencies since the '90s.
  • Why comparing our blooper reel to the highlight reel of others will always lead to our downfall.

122: Feedback Friday | How to Be a Sustainable Digital Nomad
00:46:45

Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Is partaking of a small amount of marijuana in the evening akin to relaxing with a glass of wine at the end of the day, or are you just lying to yourself in order to justify an unhealthy addiction? Also: is it worth the risk if it's not legal in your area?
  • How do you become essential to a fast-growing company that has so much to offer your career among a peer group with a competitive but respectful corporate spirit?
  • How do you navigate the chain of command without stepping on toes when you know your boss' boss is more competent than your boss and prefer to work with her when something needs to be done?
  • You're naturally shy and don't have much contact with your old friends these days. How do you work up the courage to go out and meet people who have the potential to be your new friends?
  • You've graduated from high school and now you're in a gap year before you go to college. You've been offered a management position at your current job, but it would further delay your college plans. Should you take the opportunity for promotion, or stick with your plan to start school next year?
  • Are you crazy for wanting to transition away from a well-paying job with great benefits toward a sustainable digital nomad lifestyle -- especially when you and your wife are planning to raise a family?
  • Is the idea of going back to college your solution for being unable to cope with the stress of your challenging job, or are you just not adjusting to being the low person on the totem pole?

  • How much do you share with your audience when the boundaries for sharing are blurry?
  • When the shadow of your past might have an impact on your future once revealed by old contacts mixing with your new, should you just avoid social media altogether?

01:32:52

Robert Greene (@RobertGreene) is the author of five New York Times Best Sellers. His highly anticipated sixth book, The Laws of Human Nature, is out now.

What We Discuss with Robert Greene:

  • Why you can't monumentally improve your life by modifying your behavior if you don't understand what causes such behavior.
  • Why it's liberating to understand that the reason other people react to you in whatever way they do has more to do with them and their own baggage than you and yours.
  • How oversimplifying the impression you have of someone robs you of the ability to relate to them beyond a surface level -- and what you can do to change the game.
  • Why your lower nature seems to be the default you'll fall into without effort and what it takes to tap into the potential of your higher nature.
  • The difference between active and passive envy, where envy comes from, why it's so often destructive, and how you can flip envy to your benefit.
  • And much more...

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • The idea of having children with your partner out of wedlock might not matter to society as much as it used to, but it might matter more to your partner than is apparent.
  • You don't always need to see your doctor waving a huge red flag in order to seek a second opinion, but here's a great example of one if you're wondering what such a red flag might look like.
  • Even though the relationship you've had with your high school sweetheart for nearly 10 years is strong, you can't help but wonder if your partner's desire to explore and experience other people would break you up for good or bring you closer in the long run.
  • During childhood, your spouse was sexually abused by a family member. Not everyone in the family knows this, and now that family member will be present at future holidays and gatherings. If your spouse doesn't want to speak up, what can you do?
  • Getting from the beginning to the end of a personal anecdote can be a struggle when you don't feel like you've mastered the art of storytelling. How do you get better at honing your storytelling chops?
  • You know it's a bad idea to pursue a romance or relationship with someone at the office (especially when you're the boss), but you can't deny there's an attraction between you and someone there. So how do you cool things off before this becomes a real problem?
  • If you're a new teacher -- or someone who frequently needs to speak in front of people -- how do you address the overwhelming feedback that your voice is too quiet?
  • How can you convey remorse about an on-the-job transgression for which you need to atone on a professional level?
  • Tank's Good News: Hands-Only CPR's 'Keep The Beat' 100 BPM Playlist by American Heart Association on Spotify

115: Michael Scott Moore | What It's Really like to Be a Pirate Hostage
01:15:39

Michael Scott Moore (@MichaelSctMoore) is a literary journalist and novelist who wrote about being held hostage by Somali pirates in his latest book, The Desert and the Sea: 977 Days Captive on the Somali Pirate Coast.

What We Discuss with Michael Scott Moore:

  • Why high-seas piracy still exists in some of the world's most desperate places.
  • How an outsider -- such as a journalist like Michael Scott Moore -- can be easy prey for pirates abroad even under the "protection" of hired security.
  • The types of people who become pirates and how the devoutly religious among them reconcile their actions with their faith.
  • Why you'll probably never find a restaurant specializing in Somali pirate cuisine.
  • How a hostage remains sane over 977 days in captivity through escape attempts and threat of torture.
  • And much more...

  • What the role of an ambassador in the 21st century entails, how it differs from being a diplomat, and how it changes between administrations.
  • Ambassador McFaul's creative approach to problem-solving when confronted with relentless obstruction by Putin, and how he developed relationships and recruited allies in this hostile environment.
  • How ambassadors, government officials, and spies conduct their business and keep secrets overseas.

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Now that you're on track to exercise, eat healthier, and lose weight, how can you help your significant other -- who wants to do the same -- get on track as well?
  • Though you've come a long way in personal improvement over the past few years, you're a late bloomer when it comes to relationships. How can you maintain self-esteem when you keep getting dumped for having stronger feelings than the other person?
  • You've cleaned up your act and walked a straight and narrow path to sobriety after a long period of goofing off. Now you want to expand your career options, but your resume's got some hard-to-explain gaps. What's your best next step?
  • You've been following our Six-Minute Networking steps and now you're at the David Burkus-prescribed re-engagement with weak and dormant ties by text. How do you end the conversation in one of these texts without being awkward?
  • After what seemed like genuine interest from a prospective employer and a promising couple of interviews, it's been radio silence for the past two weeks. Are you being ghosted, or are you reading too much into the lapse in correspondence?
  • We've dispensed plenty of advice on how to deal with the narcissists in your life -- but what if you're coming to the sobering realization that the narcissist in your group might actually be you? Do you need to learn how to better empathize with others, or are you just being hard on yourself?
  • How do you build authority and trust when you're in a position of power at your company, but you're so young that a lot of your subordinates don't seem to take you seriously?

Nilofer Merchant (@nilofer) is one of the world's top-ranked business thinkers, an innovation expert, and the author of The Power of Onlyness: Make Your Wild Ideas Mighty Enough to Dent the World.

What We Discuss with Nilofer Merchant:

  • How bias -- from others as well as ourselves -- works to stifle innovation and the spread of good ideas.
  • The process by which ideas are created and spread and how we can exercise our own abilities to make our ideas heard -- even if we're at the bottom of the totem pole.
  • Why we conform to expectations that were largely created decades ago and don't really have a place in the modern workforce.
  • Where "left-field" ideas often originate and why they're often missed.
  • What we can do to make the generation and capture of ideas more inclusive.
  • And much more...

01:03:21

General Stanley McChrystal (@StanMcChrystal) is a retired four-star general, founder of McChrystal Group, and co-author of Leaders: Myth and Reality.

What We Discuss with General Stanley McChrystal:

  • What General McChrystal learned by reexamining one of his most controversial personal heroes.
  • The counterintuitive ability of leaders who value their own mission over the lives of the people who work for them to attract talent.
  • How writing his memoirs without the aid of a journal -- but the memories of others who were with him throughout his life -- put his own role as a leader into perspective.
  • Why there's no single leadership style that's right for all leaders, and what potential leaders risk by trying to emulate styles that don't suit them.
  • The danger of these three common myths of leadership -- formulaic, attribution, and results -- and how to dispel them.
  • And much more...

If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at friday@jordanharbinger.com. Now, let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • How do you know if you're making progress and on track to a better and brighter future if you feel underqualified and inadequate about so much of your life? How can you measure your growth?
  • Sometimes you try so hard to help your loved ones with their issues that you forget to help yourself. Support is close if you know where to find it -- here's where we suggest looking.
  • How do you keep yourself from falling back into old, obsolete patterns of behavior whenever you visit your friends in your old hometown? Aren't you better than that now?
  • You've been on Facebook for 14 years and have never weeded out friends you've only spoken to once in that entire time. Now you're applying to a job and notice one of your obscure connections is VP of the company. Is it tacky to contact them?
  • If you genuinely love networking and meeting new people, you might feel bad about having to turn down lunch with some of them because you just don't have as much time as you used to (especially when they turn into sales pitches in disguise). How do you retreat from these invitations politely?
  • If you're proud of your political activism in college, does it do any harm to bring it up when you're looking for a new job?
  • Should you give up all the guaranteed benefits of your long-term government job to pursue a shaky future in the private sector that could result in more money and reemergence of happiness from that fire and drive you once had, but at a time cost and a possibility of being released or fired and losing those needed benefits for your family?
  • Since returning to your hometown as a successful attorney making the big bucks, one of your friends seems to think you should pay for everything you do together because you make more money. What do you do?

  • Why generosity is the backbone of networking and making you stand out from the crowd.

108: James Clear | Forming Atomic Habits for Astronomic Results
01:35:58

James Clear (@JamesClear) believes that you do not rise to the level of your goals; you fall to the level of your systems. He is the creator of the Habits Academy and author of Atomic Habits: An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones.

What We Discuss with James Clear:

  • How a near-death experience began James' exploration in leveraging tiny habits for giant outcomes.

What We Discuss with Coss Marte:

  • How a 13-year-old immigrant from the Dominican Republic scaled up a $5 million per year drug business -- the Uber for cocaine.
  • How Stephen King (probably not the one you're thinking of) brought this whole operation down, inadvertently leading to a domino effect of positive change beginning with Coss Marte.
  • The power of mindset and fitness to stay sane and healthy behind bars -- where the odds are stacked overwhelmingly against personal improvement on any level.
  • What Coss and ConBody Fitness are doing to help rehabilitate the incarcerated and break the cycle of recidivism so many fall into.
  • How lessons learned from the illicit drug trade transferred to Coss' legitimate business and helped him build a bridge of understanding between the world's successful and its formerly incarcerated.
  • And much more...

97: Vince Beiser | Why Sand Is More Important than You Think It Is
01:02:52

Vince Beiser (@vincelb) is an award-winning journalist specializing in social issues, technology, and the places they intersect. His latest book is The World in a Grain: The Story of Sand and How It Transformed Civilization.

What We Discuss with Vince Beiser:

  • Sand is to cities what flour is to bread -- without sand, civilization as we know it could not exist.
  • Sand is at the core of our daily lives, used to make concrete, glass, asphalt, silicon chips in laptops, and smartphones.
  • Usable sand is a finite, endangered resource and desert sand doesn't work for construction -- in fact, Dubai imports sand from Australia.
  • There's a black market for sand, and there are sand pirates -- it's a resource over which people literally die.
  • Nearly 70% of sand on Earth is quartz (one of the most common minerals on earth), and the cycle to create new sand takes 200 million years.
  • And much more...
