  • What to do if you find you're already being wrapped up in the deceitful webs of these dangerous personalities and how to disentangle yourself from them.
  • Why you often let misguided social programming override your natural instincts to sniff out the bad behavior of people in your life and how to tune into those instincts again.

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...

129: Chris Pfaff | The Drama Behind the Young and Reckless
00:59:46

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...

128: Feedback Friday | How to Be a Trustee for the Untrustworthy
00:50:43

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:

  • 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 Advanced Human Dynamics Level One, 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
  • Quick shoutout to everyone who joined us at our live event in Las Vegas for Advanced Human Dynamics!

  • Understand why someone who seems to have it all on the outside might really be dying on the inside.
  • Deal with the aftermath when someone close takes their own life -- even when part of you empathizes with their reasons.
  • Be your own champion: reach out to your family and friends who support you through the highs and lows before you're at your wit's end.
  • 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.
  • And much more...

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?
  • Tank's Good News: Watch Olympic Sprinter Run onto Busy Highway so He Can save Tortoise from Traffic

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

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.

  • What the role of an ambassador in the 21st century entails, how it differs from being a diplomat, and how it changes between administrations.

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 Advanced Human Dynamics Level One 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?
  • Tank's Good News of the Week: "Sherlock" Star Benedict Cumberbatch Saves Cyclist from Muggers

00:50:03

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.

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?

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

  • Should your partner build themselves up to your level if they feel lower in the social value hierarchy, or should you let them take you down a peg or two for the sake of balance?
  • As a new podcaster, are you having trouble with keeping a consistent publishing schedule? Here's why we do what we do and how we keep ourselves on track.

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • Do the re-engagement scripts we recommend in Level One of Advanced Human Dynamics ever grow stale? Don't people notice when they receive the same lines every year to stay in touch?
  • Is there a way to tame the emotional outbursts you have whenever you receive criticism -- even when it's constructive and warranted?
  • How should you handle that old school friend who always says "yes" to a coffee but never, ever buys you one back?
  • How do you look for another job while still employed when your current job leaves you so depressed, anxious, and emotionally drained?

103: Coss Marte | Staying out of Prison with Muscle and Conviction
01:03:28

Coss Marte (@CossMarte) is the founder and CEO of ConBody, a NYC-based fitness studio that hires formerly incarcerated individuals to teach fitness classes, and author of ConBody: The Revolutionary Bodyweight Prison Boot Camp, Born from an Extraordinary Story of Hope.

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.

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...

Guy Winch (@GuyWinch) is a licensed psychologist, leading advocate for integrating the science of emotional health into our daily lives, workplaces, and education systems, and author of How to Fix a Broken Heart.

  • The insidious lengths to which the mind will go to keep us perpetually experiencing pain and how we can take back control from our default autopilot.
  • We can't passively count on time to heal all wounds. We need to take a more active role in our recovery from an emotional wound.
  • If you shame someone who is coping with the death of a pet or otherwise lack the ability to empathize with their pain, you might be kind of a monster.
  • Getting comfortable asking for help when we're recovering from emotional trauma helps others understand that it's okay for them to ask for help as well.
  • And much more...

4: Deep Dive | Learning How to Cope with Instability
01:01:13

Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) takes a deep dive with us into one of life's scariest constants: instability. We'll discuss why it's crucial for personal growth and how to embrace what it has to offer rather than trying to outrun its transient discomforts.

"Instability isn't just a thing we need to deal with in life -- it is life." -Gabriel Mizrahi

What We Discuss in This Deep Dive:

  • No matter how stable life might seem at any given moment, we should always count on one constant: instability. Change -- whether big or small -- is inevitable.
  • Rather than trying to avoid or expel the uncertainty we experience in moments of instability, we should be taking notes and learning from it.
  • At its core, uncertainty is really a function of how much information we have versus how much information we want.
  • Uncertainty makes unpleasant events more unpleasant, but it also makes pleasant events more pleasant.
  • Why you should trust that uncertainty exists to serve you.
  • And much more...
