Topics Covered:

  • The Availability of Confirmation Bias - Social media and the internet has given us exposure to so much information that we have a natural tendency to hone in on what validates our beliefs
  • Mindsets Having Beat Brain Surgery - With a “nothing-to-lose” mentality you don’t need to accept things as they are, which inspires more curiosity.
  • Disruption - Someone needs to do something different in order for things to be different, and systems are designed to keep things the same.


Highlight Quotes:

  • “You tend to become something you didn’t expect to be when’s a bad thing happens to you.”
  • “I think curiosity is analogous to chutzpah and moxie.”
  • “Never give someone what they want, give them something what they never knew they wanted or needed.”
