Do More Real Things in The World, Be Better, and Feel Better


On this episode of the Growth Equation Podcast, Brad and Steve discuss the vast benefits of doing real, concrete activities in a modern world that is increasingly complex and full of subjective measures. They argue that everyone, especially knowledge workers, should have a “real thing” craft to which they dedicate at least some time, energy, and focus.  Doing real things keeps you humble and it keeps you well. This is one of the best episodes we’ve recorded in a long time, so don’t miss out!
