Anyway, Lisa teaches and writes about very similar things that I teach and write about. We have a lot in common that way.
So she was re-reading Being Human and asked if we could do a Skype interview to look at some of the ideas in my book a bit more, and then share it with you all.
Of course I said yes.
The interview was awesome. She asked some excellent questions that highlight some of the most helpful perspectives either of us have come across in everything we’ve learned.
- We talked about how traditional self-help tends to innocently mess with our heads and leave us worse off than we were before.
- We talked about doing what we want versus doing what we think we should and how to know the difference when they look the same.
- We talked about the basic truth that we are all 100% mentally well from birth to death, we just don’t always know it.
- We talked about the very human “stuckness” we often find ourselves in when we’re trying to see 10 steps ahead, and how to not try to see 10 steps ahead.
We talked about a lot of other stuff too, but those were some of the biggies.
And we both went away feeling like it was not only super fun, but would be really helpful to share (we were humble about it, but this feels like such important stuff).
So please do watch. Or download the audio only if you want to take us on your run or if you just prefer to not see us (we understand).
And if questions or thoughts occur to you, feel free to go over to Lisa’s site and post them if you’d like, and I’ll be addressing them all there.
(And check out her articles while you’re there. She has a really unique style that I’m very jealous of).
