You’ve heard of the book,“The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life.” It’s the #3 most read book on Amazon and a “New York Times” bestseller. And the book, written by Mark Manson, is still skyrocketing. But ENOUGH. Mark is ready to move on. He’s been doing press for the book for over a year. And it’s pulling him back from getting to a place where his brain can look for new ideas. So I asked what he’s curious about. I wanted to know what’s next.
“I’m fixated on this idea of hope and meaning right now,” Mark said. He broke it down. And revealed his opinion on why there’s so much hopelessness and meaningless now. Our conversation went deep. And we got into topics I haven’t talked about much on this podcast. And now… thanks to Mark, I have new ideas, too.
