Control Theory (And Dealing With Risk)

A few months ago, I sat down with a good friend in Dana Point, California.

This was a “repeat” episode — the first one happened right after I signed away my first company. I talked about the ins and outs of that decision, and we discussed how easy it is to build a life you hate.

You can listen to the first episode using the links below:

On my second trip, we talked about the ramifications of the first trip and everything that ensued as a result. This episode is packed with random antidotes & stories that are guaranteed to change how you look at yourself and your business.

Note About Control

In the episode I talk a lot about “control.” I’ve developed a unique philosophy around control that goes like this:

Control everything by controlling your responses to everything.

It is not possible to control (literally) everything — it is only possible to control your thoughts, your activities, and the “meaning” you derive from situations. When someone derives healthy, empowering meaning, they control more.

When a person gets this — they tap into an alternate reality: one which THEY can control. Unfortunately, many people dismiss the idea out of ignorance. We are taught a set of rules as we grow up that constrain & limit us. When we feel limited, we often end up making poor decisions or — worse — no decisions.

I just hosted a sales ops workshop & I’m putting together a sales book that should be released sometime in Q1 of 2024.
