Concerning removing social apps, I did that several weeks ago, when I changed my smartphone and took the chance to not install again most of the apps.
I just installed the essential ones. As social app, I just left Whatsapp installed. The rest, removed. I first heard you tell us to take successful people out for dinner 3 years back. At the time I thought, "Noah, you're crazy, you can't just email someone and say, "hey can I take you out for dinner? However, building relationships with more successful people and with people who inspire you is so important. Firstly, understand that most people really do want to help you.
They want to share their knowledge. I made a list of 20 people I wanted to reach out to. It just so happened all these people lived in a different city and they were cold contacts very few mutual connections. I put them on an excel and noted things like their twitter handle, their email, podcasts they were on etc. Then I began emailing them.
Getting even 1 coffee meeting would be great. I set a date to be in my target city and tried to get coffee dates set up. I managed 4. I wanted them to know that I really appreciated their time, so apart from being on time and suggesting places to meet for coffee, I spent hours crafting good questions.
And I got these questions reviewed from my friends. This because I believe there's a big difference between dumb questions and well-thought out ones. This was hugely beneficial.
I got to make new friends, and one of them decided to become a mentor and he was keen to introduce to his friends. Sidenote: I think that trying to get coffee with someone like Noah, Tim Ferriss or the likes is setting yourself up for failure because they're so busy.
Target someone who isn't as popular. I will read Flow by Steven Kottler and listen to some podcasts with him. I'm a podcast addict though I only listen to just few podcats, Tim Ferriss'es show as one of them and that's how I discovered your podcast and added it to my list of indulgence :. Love it, keep it up and I love the challenges. I am waking up at 6 AM most days now. I had to pull over to jot down a few tweetables lol.
Great episode! Just finished Happy Pockets Full of Money for the second time and next up is Influence which is on your list as well. I added a few of yours to my Amazon wish list. Thanks for the inspiration. Hey Noah, really great episode, timeless but profound insights! Loving it so far, about halfway through. Absolutely loving it! It's helped me to realize that I can't stay stagnant - I have to 10X my goals and work even harder to get them.
I am reading two books right now: "The Untethered Soul" by Michael Singer about that voice that you hear in your head. Both are really good. I am striving to be the best I can be. It is time! Thanks for the podcast. First thing first by Stephen Covey read his 7 habits book and wanted to get deeper into time managment.
And Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, fits like a glove every time! Sidenote, I always get a bad look from my mom when books arrive home, she says I spend all my money on books! Great episode matey! I'm pretty sure we would all love to hear about more about your thoughts, insights, experiences and tips on writing good sales copy. Phenomenal autobiography by an all-time great actor, comedian, writer and playwright.
He's like a real life Forrest Gump who just keeps stumbling into wild circumstances, but at the same time he's supremely motivated and dedicated to his craft. Great call on Steve Martin book. Heard solid things. Adding to my list.
You won one of my favorite books. As always, another great episode. I just finished Designing your life by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans which I really enjoyed which talks about prototyping, reframing and other great concepts.
Going to dig further into Antifragile now! Keep up the awesome content! Hi Noah, Great job on the podcast. This episode hit me especially at the right time as I am currently working on making discipline a mastery in my life right now I just finished my 1st week of the 5am challenge! I am currently reading two excellent books:. It's a quick read about the power of being excellent in throughout your life even in jobs you might view as insignificant or boring. It's a great reminder to be different in life - make you daily interactions with people standout and focus on serving others.
Cheers, Cap'n Matt. I am about to start seriously with Tools of Titans that I just skimmed through until now. I always make sure to have some fiction books available as well point 7 of your podcast: "give yourself a break" , like Norse Mythology Neil Gaiman and the classic The Trial Kafka. I am really having fun with your short but in-depth format - my go-to audio when doing non-intellectual activity or walking. I have deleted all of my apps except for Facebook.
It honestly feels so good! So good I also want to delete Facebook As soon as you delete them, you also realize what we're the reasons for actually having them in the first place and let me tell you, none of these reasons were worth it. I've now created a list of goals for myself and never downloading these apps back is definitely one of them. I listen to all your episodes Noah, and appreciate that you're always improving and looking for new ideas and places to explore.
Here's what I like about this episode:. You really captured his spirit in this one.
I feel that your experience and authority are often compromised when you throw out gratuitous F-bombs or locker-room comments in your shows or interviews. Don't get me wrong, I'm no choir-boy, but those "winceable" comments or choices of language often cause a taint where no taint should be In this episode, I felt like it was impressively mature and authoritative material, done in your own natural style I found this podcast and other similar podcasts from other rich online business owners verrry interesting for a specific reason They kind of just read any self-help book that's popular.
This is not a diss, but more so a self-reflection. I've read hundreds of the top books and have gotten really skeptical about who I listen to. I went through all of Jim, Ziglar, Robbins, etc. But now, I ask, for example, "Why listen to Jim? He made most of his money giving self-help advice. He doesn't have any credibility outside of it. Maybe I'm too skeptical I was taking notes the whole time, I didn't realize you had all the bullet points here on the blog, super helpful!
I'm reading "The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life" as inspiration for how to write a killer biography. I'm about to start writing a book about my father and his investing strategy and this book has so much great insight into Mr. Buffett and what makes him tick.

At your suggestion, I'll finally go ahead and delete Facebook from my phone. Brilliant or taco heresy? I'm currently reading 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
