  3. TMBA381: A Conversation with Cal Newport

    If you are anything like Dan and Ian, then you have likely spent years geeking out on the writings of this week’s guest.

    Cal Newport is a computer science professor, and he has been operating a blog on his website since 2007. He has also been writing books since he was in college, and his most recent book is called Deep Work, which is about the benefits and practical steps to getting more done in the internet age.

    This interview covers a wide range of subjects, including distributed algorithms at the extremes, why Cal uses walking to enhance his productivity, and why creativity is more workmanlike than most people realize.

  5. #171 Bruce Daisley: How To Fall Back In Love With Your Job Again Ctrl Alt Delete podcast

    Bruce Daisley is the European Vice-President at Twitter and host of the business podcast Eat Sleep Work Repeat. He has been one of the Evening Standard’s 1,000 Most Influential Londoners for four years and is one of Debrett’s 500 Most Influential People in Britain. according to Campaign magazine Bruce is ‘one of the most talented people in media’. He’s just written a book ‘The Joy Of Work: 30 Ways to Fix Your Work Culture and Fall in Love with Your Job Again’ comes out in January on Blue Monday.

    He is obsessed with making work better. He’s dedicated his last few years to chatting to the leading experts in workplace culture - and using evidence to find a way to improving it.

    It’s a practical, uplifting, helpful book all about making the workplace a bit better, which is important considering we spend so much time there.

    We discuss:

    • The story behind ‘Love Where You Work’ signs inside Twitter HQ

    • The power of laughter at work

    • Why ‘crisp Thursday’ is genius

    • Why you should cut all meetings in half

    • We discuss this piece "Why ‘Do What You Love’ Is Pernicious Advice

    https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2015/08/do-what-you-love-work-myth-culture/399599/

    • The importance of boredom when it comes to creativity

    Quotes:

    ‘I’m convinced people don’t read books, so I made 30 things. If all that happens is that someone is rips out one chapter and gives it to their team then it’s been successful. Arm people with facts."

    "In truth, most people in work are probably more exhausted than they’d like to admit."

    ‘if you look at the science, if you are stressed, you can’t be creative."

    "Unlike the iPhone, no one is going to unveil the new version of work"

    "50 hours a week is all that human brain can do."

  10. LUYC 066 - Amy Hoy — Zen Courses

    Amy is a software developer, writer, co-founder of Stacking the Bricks along with Alex Hillman, and a course creator. She is here today to share her story and everything about her online course ‘Sales Safari’. Most importantly, we’re going to talk about the V word: validating your idea and why you should pre-sell.

    Don’t spend a year making something. Do a tiny product first.

    Episode Quotes

    "A good business doesn’t mean it is a good business for you"

    "Just because people pay money for your thing doesn’t necessarily mean it solves their problem"

    "You need to have a really clear vision of what the product is going to be"

    "It is better to sell a smaller product for less money than to sell nothing"

    "People buy when they are confronted with a reason to take time to read the details and make a decision"

    “The big thing I want people to avoid is to spend a year making something and then [get] no sales…do a tiny product first.”
