It's All About the Choices We Make

It's All About the Choices We Make

Marketing Podcast with Ryan Holiday

In mid July I’ll be in Portland presenting at Chris Guillebeau’s World Domination Summit.

The title of my talk is “Make Good Choices

Make Good Choices

If the title to that presentation sounds a bit like well-worn advice from a dad to his teenage daughters, that’s because it is. (But you’ll have to be in Portland to hear the story behind that!)

It’s also something much bigger – our choices dictate every element of our day, our life and our work.

When we become unaware of the choices we make in every moment we hand over the reins of our journey to someone or something else.

One of the principles I’ve instilled in my business over the years is that in business, you get to choose who you want to attract, who you want to work with and how you want run, marketing and position everything you do. If you don’t make intentional choices, the kind that feed your soul, you’ll find yourself constantly on the run chasing the next big thing.

In this week episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast I visit with Ryan Holiday, author of The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph

Holiday is a well-read man and it comes across is the ideas he espouses and the people he chooses to hang out with.

We cover a lot of ground in this twenty minute interview and don’t overtly focus on the idea of choice, but I think that’s the main topic of his work when it really comes down to it.

We have choices in every moment and we choose to take right action, get upset or be unmoved – but somewhere, for just a moment in time, there lies our freedom.
