This is part two in a series of episodes in which I share the “big idea” from each of my books. This episode covers the big idea from my 2013 book Die Empty, which is about the common places people and teams get stuck and fail to do the work they are capable of doing.
I provide an overview of the seven deadly sins (Aimlessness, Boredom, Comfort, Delusion, Ego, Fear, Guardedness), and some questions and actions to help you move beyond them.
- Here’s a podcast episode about Productive Passion.
- Here’s the episode in which I originally announced the book Die Empty.
- Here’s the conversation with Richard Hytner about overcoming cultural narratives and expectations.
