The Distilled Man Interview

Yes! There’s no better feeling than talking with someone who appreciates your work. Kyle Ingham not only appreciated my book, but he just got it—so many of his favorite quotes and ideas were ones that I was just hoping that others would highlight.

How to make better decisions and improve your situation even when the world seems completely random.

Here’s the podcast.

Highlights:

  • People use luck as an explanation when they have no other explanation
  • Assigning external causality things that happen takes away our power
  • How optimism and confidence can “create” luck
  • Why just showing up and being more social can improve your luck
  • People do judge books by their covers, and how to use that to your advantage
  • Half of your appearance is genetic, half of it is what you do with it
  • Our luck has a direct connection to the stability of our self-esteem
  • Why changing what you pay attention to can change your life

Ready to get lucky?

Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don’t believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it’s good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.
