Life is full of hard-learned lessons. We all know that. But it’s been said that, “A smart man learns from his mistakes, a wise man learns from the mistakes of others.” That’s why this podcast is so powerful – because we get to hear from incredible men doing incredible things who can teach us things that would be painful, delayed, and expensive to find out ourselves.

And, I can think of few men as qualified to do so as former NASA Astronaut, Mike Massimino. Today, Mike and I talk about some of his best lessons learned in the NASA program and in space including, “no one leaves the pool until everyone passes the test,” learning to adjust to life and your goals along the way, what was different about NASA astronaut candidates that made them successful, knowing when to pivot and break a few rules, and how to achieve the seemingly impossible.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Mike Massimino’s books Moonshot and Spaceman
  • What it takes to be an astronaut
  • Space isn’t always glamorous
  • Passion and dedication
  • Military culture
  • If you really understand something, you should be able to communicate it to anybody.
  • No one leaves the pool until everyone passes the test
  • Hubble space telescope missions

We all know there is a formula for success in any venture. We’ve all heard things like, “success leaves clues,” and seen certain people replicate success over and over and over again. And, yet, so many men struggle to create and maintain success on the professional and personal front of their lives. That’s why it’s so important we learn what protocols are required to achieve the results we desire.

Today, I’m joined by philosopher and CEO, Brian Johnson to talk about his theory of Arete and why success on any level is so simple yet so elusive. We talk about what confidence in others actually is and how to develop it, how talent won’t get you all the way to your goals, why intrinsic motivation must be your pursuit, and the Stockdale Paradox and how to use it to your advantage.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Brian’s upcoming book Areté: Activate Your Heroic Potential
  • Maintaining trust and integrity gaps
  • What were you doing when you were at your best?
  • Creating micromoments
  • Being grateful for the little things
  • The meaning behind the word “hero”
  • Ancient wisdom, modern science, and practical tools
  • Training heroes

Men, our minds are nearly limitless and yet we spend an inordinate amount of time reading, running, working out, practicing hobbies, talking with other people, performing as best we can across various mediums and take so little time developing the power of our brains and minds.

Of the nearly 500 guests I’ve had on this podcast, all of them believe their thing is the most important thing and, yet, it’s the mind that makes everything else possible. That’s why I wanted to have repeat guest, Jim Kwik back on the podcast to discuss how to leverage the gray matter between our ears. We talk about everything from learning to learn faster, the 6 thinking hats for decision making, 4 cognitive types (Cheetah, Owl, Dolphin, and Elephant) and how to use this information, and becoming the pilot of our minds, not just the passengers.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The faster you can learn the faster you can earn
  • The choices we make every day give us the brain that we deserve
  • All behavior is belief driven
  • You need curiosity to know yourself and courage to be yourself
  • Strategies for recognizing your brain/animal type
  • Using AI to enhance your human intelligence
  • Technology is neither good nor bad
  • Master the ability to adapt
  • We are flexing our “distraction” muscle all the time
  • Nootropics and supplements

Every single man listening to this podcast sees issues with the current culture. And, yet, far too many men are unwilling to do anything about it. Whether it’s a disdain for current culture commentary or a bad case of apathy, ignoring what we see going on around us isn’t going to lead to anywhere positive.

My guest today, author and podcast host, Andrew Klavan, is a man who is and has been for decades actively engaged in dealing with the decline of our current culture through writing, producing films, and podcast commentary. Today, we talk about rationalization and justification for doing the wrong things, why so many people tap-dance around biological reality, why we’re losing this country through the movies, changing culture through art, when and when not to compromise, and viewing your own life as a work of art.

EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS

⁃ Anti-American movies and media after 9/11
⁃ Behind The Daily Wire
⁃ The Andrew Klavan Show
⁃ What is a woman?
⁃ Comedy needs to be protected
⁃ The ostracization of Hollywood
⁃ Israel and Hamas
⁃ Conservative artists
⁃ The House of Love and Death by Andrew Klavan
