How do the best achieve superior results? Do they work 10,000 hours? Do they spend years sharpening the saw? While it takes work and grit, the type of work achievers focus on may surprise you. We’ll dive into the science of greatness with Dr. Ron Friedman, author of the new bestseller Decoding Greatness. It’s a wide-ranging discussion that will change the way you think about your career, your goals, and how you spend your time.
During our headlines segment we’ll share a sad statistic about COVID and benefits. It turns out that LOTS of people who are eligible for help aren’t applying for it. We’ll share some ideas that will hopefully help you find money if you need it. Of course it’s Monday, so that means we’ll also share a TikTok video from a brilliant creator who shares some amazing (maybe too amazing) math about AMC stock.
Of course, we’ll also throw out the Haven Life line to a lucky caller who’s worried about fees in his portfolio AND of course we’ll share some of Doug’s monkey business called “trivia.”
