It’s the Season 7 kickoff of Behind the Brilliance! I missed you. Let the digital streets tell it, lives are spiraling out of control in the absence of BTB so I’m glad I’m back before the apocalypse went down!
This entire season will be devoted to making luck and hacking happiness. I can’t wait for you to hear the conversations. There will be a fun lineup of writers, travelers, journalists, and all kinds of interesting folks.
The cynics say the advice about waking up early, meditating, and all of the other usual stuff is overblown and doesn’t account for the role of LUCK in being successful. I agree with them so I decided to devote an episode to ways we can make our own luck.
Some stuff is legitimately beyond our control (like dicks/vaginas, skin color, etc) but there’s a lot we can do that makes a difference.
-a twist on the conventional advice to “work hard”
-how to find your Prosper Point
-why “hobbies and interests” matter
-a different way of thinking about big goals
-and much more
