Joining me on this episode is Patrick Schwerdtfeger, a motivational speaker and leading authority on global business trends including big data, demographic forecasting and the social media revolution. He’s also the author of several books including the award winning, Marketing Shortcuts for the Self-Employed. We’re talking about self-improvement and how to position yourself for success in your career and in life. Among the many topics Patrick and I discuss are what it means to have a growth mindset and why having one is critical to your success, how living up to our potential is an ongoing dynamic process, and how intentional immersion is essential to rapid skill acquisition.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

[4:14] Patrick expands on the idea of having a growth mindset, and living up to our potential; which is an ongoing dynamic process.

[7:33] How one of the best ways to learn something quickly (aka rapid skill acquisition) is through intentional immersion.

[12:52] Patrick provides practical steps you can take in order to break out of a “comfort addiction.”   

[16:04] Patrick elaborates on the idea of rapid skill acquisition and determining the minimum number of hours you need to invest to become proficient at something.

[21:09] How perceived knowledge and actual knowledge are inversely correlated—so the more you think you know something the reality is you actually know very little.

[27:32] Patrick shares a story which speaks to the idea that by setting more audacious goals you can actually gain a competitive advantage in sales.

[32:46] Why Patrick says to ask yourself ‘what’s the completely unrealistic thing that your customers are asking for?’
