Show Notes

One of our listeners sent us this question about the idea of constantly wanting to get ahead in life, and how that seems to clash with another idea of being happy with what you have. Aren't these two ideas in conflict with each other?

If you're happy with where you are, you might be seen as lazy and uninspired, but isn't the goal of wanting to achieve success to be happy? And if you're already there, aren't you.. winning?  

 

Tell us your two cents and drop us a question (or two, or three) here:

S2E25. What Do You Remember?

What was your earliest memory? Are you in the "HOW could I not remember this??" or rather the "I remember nothing" camp? On this episode we take a jog down memory lane on what we remember and how memories can be sources of drive, motivation, or doubt. Most importantly, if you're getting married soon, congrats(!!) and make sure to book Thomas to give a toast at your wedding :) And as always, if you have a burning question, find us here: Email: [email protected] IG: @frndsnextdoor Dan: @therealdanchen Mia: @msmiaaa Thomas: @nomastmas ...
