Some interesting excerpts from the podcast are mentioned below.
Why is always positive. It’s always striving for something. So like we’re not inspired against something. We’re not inspired to stop something. We’re inspired to build something or create something or advance something.
You know our sense of joy and fulfilment and love and purpose comes from our ability to serve another human being.
And I started to realise we’ve confused things here. Which is, we don’t get to decide when we’re present, we get to practise being present, but you actually are not present until someone else says you are.
You know we don’t build trust by offering help. We build trust by asking for it. Because it’s a vulnerable thing to ask for help. Can I help you? Not so much an act of service. But the act of service really comes from allowing somebody else to serve you.
And I think it’s a big gaping hole in the curriculum. We teach, you know maths and we teach English, but we don’t teach social interaction. We don’t teach listening, we don’t teach how to have uncomfortable conversations. We don’t teach how to give and receive feedback.
