In today’s episode, we start with how humans send space probes deep into outer space … which of course ties right to our work as creators. Obviously…
Then, we hear from the defender and apostle of Awesome, Neil Pasricha. He’s the creator of the blog 1000awesomethings.com, is a New York Times bestselling author, a TED speaker, and the author of the brand new book, The Happiness Equation.
His story is moving, his journey is inspirational, and yet his origins were simple and relatable — it all started with a very basic side project.
Also in this episode:
- We explore this idea of creative side projects. Why are they so valuable and powerful for our careers?
- I share the story of how my least-popular blog ever helped me get a job at Google.
- We hear the very raw, emotional story behind Neil’s launch of his side project, as well as have some fun talking about his famous blog.
- I introduce something new about Unthinkable which relates to exploring and creating awesome side projects.
