Scott Adams: The Man Behind Dilbert | The Blog of Author Tim Ferriss

“Be useful.” – Scott Adams

Scott Adams (@scottadamssays) is the creator of the Dilbert comic strip, which has been published in more than 2,000 newspapers in 57 countries and in 19 languages.

In my conversation with Scott, we cover topics ranging from the rise of Dilbert, to how he uses affirmations to impact stock market decisions, success with women, and building his career.

We also talk about Scott’s interest in hypnosis and its relationship to his writing process. Plus, we dive into his current fascination with Donald Trump.

You’ll also find out more about:

Goals vs. systems, and how he has used the latter to get what he wants in life His first ever Dilbert paycheck The six dimensions of humor How he got into the best shape of his life at age 58, and much, much more. It is a really fun conversation. Scott is one hell of a character and a hilarious guy.

Enjoy!
