TOPIC: The Life You Actually Want.
Dan is joined by Haddie to discuss being original and being copied, the difference between getting burnt out vs losing focus on your goal, loving what you do, finding the joy in the process not just the end result, and Dan reveals secrets about 5by5.
This episode surprised us; through a discussion of who is at fault in the latest series of new vs old-world spats, we realized that not only has the Internet fundamentally changed winners-and-losers, but also the very nature of economic competition and the type of regulation that is required.
