I hold a deep-seated belief that there are really only two types of people in this world: the people who do things and the people who watch people do things.
Most people fall into that second category. They get so caught up in making a living and going through the motions of life that they end up living in the world of the people who do things.
They say how great it would be to try something out or to start on a new project or to pick up a skill or jump into a career, but when push comes to shove, they don’t act.
These people live in the world of the Doers. They buy the products of the Doers, they admire their art, they read their books, and they watch their athletic competitions.
The Doers have a disproportionate impact on the lives of everybody else.
Ever since I was young, I have been fascinated by the Doers. These people seem to run on a different wavelength than everybody else, whether that’s in business, art, ideas, health, or any number of other areas. When others get caught up in “what if’s,” they decide to try things out.
I’ve purposely designed my life to be around these people. In my job, I get to interact with entrepreneurs and CEOs who started companies and with young people doing things now. I interact with intellectuals and artists who didn’t wait for somebody to tell them they should become leaders in their fields — they just chose to act.
And I want to share these people’s stories.
Doers is a weekly podcast exploration of the stories, habits, and visions of people who show an unusual bias for action. I’ve already interviewed intellectuals, entrepreneurs, artists, athletes, data scientists, and craftsmen who are leaders among their peer groups. We explore what makes them tick, what helped them develop their bias for action, and what ultimately sets them apart from everybody else.
Episodes are released weekly and are 45 minute- ~1 hour interviews.
