Yesterday I listened to what may be the best podcast I've personally heard...
It was my friend Eric Beck of Founders Fire who will be joining me next week for a two day, two man symposium that will rock your world! (Watch for upcoming details)
Eric was a guest with two podcasters, Stephen Webb and Parker Richardson who seem to place a great value on the practice of actually thinking. It was this practice of deliberate (vs mindless) thinking that my dear friend and mentor Dr. Peter J. Daniels claimed was essential to his success.
If you don't know Peter Daniels (now age 90), check out what he said would most likely be his last interview on earth with several thought leaders you may know.
Eric wove together the most compelling, hang on every word, talk - without the use of hyperbole or fever pitch excitation. When I finished hearing it, I immediately sought permission to share it, and later last night, it was granted.
Eric dug very deep into "Is Your Unexamined Life Worth Living?". It is a MUST LISTEN for every thinking Christian who wants a deeper, more meaningful, multi-dimensional life. As a Spartan race competitor in 25 Spartan races, and finishing in the top 10, you'll love what he said about the Spartans!
He wove together his story, like a coat of many colors. His father, an Atlanta firefighter died in a gas explosion with three other fireman in the 2nd worse fire in Atlanta's history. Eric was still in his mother's womb.
As a young man, he served in the military, then became a professional musician where he performed in such illustrious venues as the Lincoln Center and the Hollywood Bowl. By the turn of the century he became the international training director for E-Myth and Michael Gerber and became the premier trainer of coaches and business owners in the entrepreneurial sphere.
