Krista Tippett on Listening

“Listening is more than being quiet while the other person speaks until you can say what you have to say.”

TKP

This episode with Kunal Shah contains more insights per minute than almost any other podcast. We talk about understanding the value of something, core human motivations, shame, scaling a business, value creation, creating emotional connections, decision-making, high trust vs. low trust societies, and so much more.

"Like what controls your happiness and what controls your joy or pride. And a lot of times when people put it in other people’s hands, that if you like it, if you like you appreciate it, I need your applause. They build less and less substance within themselves because they’re optimizing for somebody else’s metric, not realizing that nobody gives a damn about anybody else, except themselves."

Insight

Lynne Twist in The Soul of Money:

"Each of us experiences a lifelong tug-of-war between our money interests and the calling of our soul. When we’re in the domain of soul, we act with integrity. We are thoughtful and generous, allowing, courageous, and committed. . . . We are open, vulnerable, and heartful. . . . We are trustworthy and trusting of others. . . . We feel at peace within ourselves and confident that we are an integral part of a larger, more universal experience, something greater than ourselves."

Tiny Thought

It almost always seems expensive to act with the long term in mind, which is why so few people do it.

Etc.

Could Be Better"when we care enough to say, “could be better,” we’re putting ourselves on the hook to create. You need to care enough to describe an improvement. Because once you’ve announced how something can be better, you get the chance to show that it can be done."

The Notorious"Candace was beautiful. She lived in this great mansion. She gave away money to worthy causes. She had all these children she adored. She had everything she could possibly want. And then the police announced that she and her lover-boy nephew were cold-blooded killers."

Trust The one thing that people pay for.
