He seems to naturally embody everything that Ao C stands for.
This content is so on point right now; no one quite has the mouthpiece that Gary has!
This would be memorable on the merit of being the first Ao C episode I ever lent an ear toward — and the first one to which I contributed and had the sincere honor of working with this world-class podcasting team.
Even though she wasn’t a VIP guest like Alex Kouts or Lewis Howes, it really nailed the hows, whys, dos, and don’ts of seeking therapy.Since I had therapy about five years ago, I’ve always stressed the importance that everyone should see a therapist at least once in their lives just to check themselves before they wreck themselves.While Chris Edwards identified as a male from a very early age, he was born and socialized as a girl.When he decided to undergo the physical transition from female to male, he did it openly while working at an ad agency of 500 people.More than anything, Chris found that such a transition was really an issue of rebranding — he was still the same person, but he made the decision to take control of how others would perceive him.
This is a story for anyone who, while on the cusp of making big life changes, hesitates for fear of what others will think of them.In other words, you’re sort of on autopilot, and it gives your brain the chance to piece together a lot of disparate information that your rational mind would usually ignore.This associative thinking gives us connections that lead to some pretty wild innovations, so it’s no surprise that a lot of the world’s greatest thinkers throughout history have made time for taking a walk or a nap every day.Most people have several university degrees, master’s qualifications, and work multiple jobs alongside, hustling to get to the top.Gary’s message is all about this, so it was interesting hearing his Soviet backstory — especially since I’d not heard him talk about it anywhere else.I’m going to throw a curveball and say that the bonus episode between 455 and 456 should have been a main feed episode.
