Embarking on a Journey

joel-comm-glassesIn this episode of the Wayfinding Growth podcast, Remington Begg & George B Thomas dive into the 34th episode of the podcast.

Remington talks about his feelings at the beginning versus how he feels about the show now.

They quickly dive into talking about Joel Comm, his perception of himself and the points of view he brought to the table in last week's episode.

Trivia Contents: Last week was the longest episode in Wayfinding Growth history.

Last week’s episode was an amazing case study on how to be human and how to be comfortable being vulnerable.

Charting The Course

WheelIn the charting the course section, we start out by talking about not giving up.

Remington shares at a deeper level his miner meme that he brought up in last week’s episode.

We then dive into the anti-grind thoughts that Joel Comm had referenced in episode 33.

Remington dives into his observation:

  1. Wow, screw the hustle (Perception)

  2. How to live a life doing what you enjoy. (Whimsical )

Remington waxes poetic about if these thoughts are possible when working with teams.

George talks about what if whimsical is the right word for us to use. He dives back into the Fun Formula and the dance his mind was doing during this part of the interview.

Then the conversation dives into not needing to pick pure hustle or pure fun. He talks about how there should be a happy medium that one could find for themselves.

George’s final thoughts on the Charting The Course section was the need for asking why beliefs are beliefs you believe.

Remington closed it out talking about how Joel and Gary might just be saying the same thing just in different ways.

Gary: Get your hustle on.

Joel: Carpe Diem “Seize the day”.
