Doing Something That Scares You Everyday w/ Misbah Haque

I wanted to kick off the year with something that scared the shit out of me. A solo podcast was one of them. I explore some of the meta messages I took away from this past year that I thought were worth sharing.

In this episode, some things I talk about:

  • Doing something that scares you every day

  • Creating mental models and knowing your “why” (reason goals fade after the New Year)

  • How memorizing a 511 page book shaped my fascination with performance psychology and behavior

  • The practice to bathe your brain -- that is not meditation

  • Your brain on podcasts

  • Staying curious and exploring things that might not work
