[01:03] – Eric has been busy with his blog and book
[01:27] – His area of expertise is talking to experts and extracting the best information about how to get better at life

[02:49] – When Eric talks to people, he sees them on a constant quest
[03:30] – He appreciates when a resourceful person has exhausted all means to get an answer
[04:44] – Worst Entrepreneurial Moment: Eric was working in the video game industry. His blog was growing by leaps, but he felt he didn’t want to be in video games forever. He decided to quit his job and focus on the blog. Unfortunately, apart from his savings, he didn’t think about the money. He decided that the next step was to write a book. Eric moved to his parents’ house in the middle of nowhere for 6 months and struggled mentally
[07:59] – The only stream of income Eric had was through his blog’s Amazon affiliate account
[08:05] – He was definitely going into the red if it wasn’t for the book proposal
[08:47] – Eric’s shift from the blog to the book proposal was extreme
[11:12] – Entrepreneurial AH-HA Moment: Eric was talking to an author and asking about the process after taking a book deal. The author said he spent a year reading – something Eric didn’t account for. Then, Eric talked to another author who said the same thing – and then another, and another. He realized he already had 7 years of reading from his time posting on his blog
[13:35] – Eric realized he already had all the information he needed
[15:00] – Eric’s blog didn’t emerge fully-formed; he had to do his own research

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? – “When you enter a company, look around, and look at the people who are there. Realize that you’re going to become like them and they’re not going to become like you. If those people are not the people you want to be, it’s not going to work”
What’s a personal habit that contributes to your success? – “Obsessiveness”
Share an internet resource, like Evernote, with Fire Nation – RSS Feeds
If you could recommend one book to our listeners, what would it be and why? – Sapiens – “you kind of get a sum up of the history of humanity in a very accessible format”
[21:52] – Sit down and think about traits you’re not happy about and imagine a context where these negative traits can be positive
22:13 – Connect with Eric on his blog
3 Key Points:
Be resolute in your quest for knowledge; learn from the experts.

LISTEN HERE: ITUNES | OVERCAST | PLAYERFMShane Parrish is a partner at Syrus Partners and the mind behind one of my favorite blogs, Farnam Street. The blog is devoted to helping you develop an understanding of how the world really works, make better decisions, and live a better life. Shane writes about mental models, decision making, learning, reading, and the art of living. He draws from both the sciences and the humanities, expanding the intellectual horizons of his readers, helping them connect ideas, think in multidisciplinary ways, and cultivate meaning in their lives. I first discovered the blog in college and credit Shane for so much of my intellectual curiosity. He writes a weekly newsletter called Brain Food that covers all that he’s learned in the week beforehand. To help you cut through the noise, he includes his favorite books and articles with a high signal-to-noise ratio. He also hosts a podcast called The Knowledge Project. I recommend this episode with Rory Sutherland. In this episode, Shane reveals counterintuitive secrets to learning history through the lens of his recent trip to France. We also dissected one of my favorite mental models — why the map is not the territory. It’s a fascinating one that changed the way I see the world. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did.
