Human Nature from Caveman to Homo Deus: 30 Years of Wisdom in History, Biology & Science
Show Notes:Today’s guest is a walking reminder of our human origins, or said differently, how we as humans used to live & think for 99% of the time on Earth. The main challenge he’s been tackling for over 30 years now is:  "How do we retain some sense of our ancestry and our ancestral ways while making it work in the modern world & environment."And as Frank beautifully put it, the challenge isn’t small, because:  "We’re just animals who are trying to function in an alien environment. We’re all trying to adapt to this world, that we don’t really understand.”The 3 main questions me & Frank are exploring today:❓ What caused the big shift from humans living in harmony with Nature, and the present moment, where it’s a Man against Nature, trying to master it.❓ Why a trip to the Ground ZERO of Human experience, which is Africa and its native Tribes, changed Frank‘s perspective on the human condition - forever❓ What is the unifying story that will bring, us humans, together, moving forward?Full show notes and resources can be found hereLinks Mentioned In The Episode:The Reenchantment of the World by Morris BermanThe Master and His Emissary by Iain McGilchristThe Fall by Steve TaylorFrank's WebsiteLike the show?

The Discipline Of Thinking Time - How To (Inspired by Keith Cunningham)
🔥 “It is not supposed to be easy. Anyone who finds it easy is stupid.”—Charlie Munger, Vice Chairman of Berkshire HathawaySmart people do dumb things.Here’s the proof: How much money would you have right now if I gave you the ability to unwind any financial decision you have ever made?It turns out that the key to getting rich (and staying that way) is to avoid doing stupid things. The vast majority of dumb tax in both our lives is a direct result of three things:✅ 1. Generalizations (which kill clarity),✅ 2. Obsessing about Oz (instead of the yellow brick road)✅ 3. Faulty assumptions (ignoring risk).Here it is on a bumper sticker: Operators react and sweat. Owners think and plan.It all hinges on Thinking Time.Links Mentioned In The Episode:Full 40+ Page Summary of Road Less Stupid, including 200+ thinking time questionsLike the show?
